Good afternoon kitties!!! Today's topic is "EYES" have it, part 2: VISION PROBLEMS!!!

Your pet has always been a sure-footed beast, but lately she's been bumping into things and looking lost. For some reason your pet's sharp vision has faded.

DON'T PLAY MUSICAL CHAIRS: Moving furniture can confuse dim-sighted animals and even cause injuries. if your cat is playing and barrels into a table leg for example, put your furniture back where it was.

SHOW HIM AROUND: If you do move your furniture around, lead him around on a leash for a day or two to help him find his way. It is also a good idea to confine him to one room until he knows it well. Once he is familiar with the layout, switch him to a different room, most pets love to be around people, so be sure you stay in the room an hour for a few times daily so your pet doesn't feel alone.

BE PREDICTABLE: Stability is important for poorly sighted animals. Leaving their food and water in the same place will help give her a sense of order and security. The same goes for her litterbox, bed and toy box. The less you change things the better.

GIVE HER A LEASH ON LIFE: If your pet has even the slightest trouble seeing, do not allow her to be outside alone without a leash, she will be scared and frightened and may run away or get hit by a car.

IF YOU HAVE A POOL: Pools can be dangerous for pets that can't see where they are going. I have seen blind people fall into pools, so guard your pet by putting a fence around the pool or keep her on a leash.

TRY A NEW HAIRDO: If your pet has vision problems and her hair is in her eyes, trim them away. Too much hair can hinder their vision.

WHEN TO VISIT THE VET: Animals have the uncanny ability to adapt to a new world, they have fine-tuned senses, if their sight goes, their sense of hearing magnifies.

If your pet suddenly doesn't sleep on your bed, or is bumping into furniture, or slow to move when called, however, her vision may be impaired. Call your vet to make an appt. and he will run vision tests to see how advanced the vision problem is and recommend treatment.

KEEP them suggestions coming in!!! TOMORROW: UTI's!

Hello Miles
What’s meowy with you? I am being very picky about what I eat. I decided this past week that I do not want to eat my lysine treats. These are the only treats I am allowed because of my kidney disease. The lysine treats are for my herpes virus which affects the dryness in my eyes. Mommy turned on our central heat last week because it is so very cold here. The heat also affects the dryness in my eyes.

Right now I will eat the lysine powder in Iams Purrfect Delights canned foods. Dr. William sent me free samples of two new flavors of the prescription k/d canned foods - tuna & veggies in sauce and chicken & veggies. I ate those for a few days, then decided they were nasty. I am still eating both the prescription k/d and Purina nf dry foods.

I am maintaining my weight of 9 lbs, 10 oz. Mommy weighs us every Caturday morning on her digital pet scales. She stays worried about me. She says it is so difficult to have an older, sick baby. I still seem to feel good as I run & play with my wand toys. I go back to Dr. William in December for my 3 month BUN & Creatinine recheck. Worrying is what Moms do best, right?

Hugs,
Q MerryBelle

Good Morning. Today's topic: SPRAYING..suggested by my baby brother, Winston..we have Jesse who sprays everything in site {yes he is 'fixed'}

Has your formerly fastidious feline suddenly taken to spraying the house, despite having a perfectly good litterbox down the hall? Don't fret too much, spraying has nothing to do with going to the bathroom.

It is a way to identify his property and covering other scents left by cats...it's your cats way of reassuring himself that he belongs and that he is owner of what he sprays.

SPARE THE ROD: Even if you happen to catch kitty in the act, punishing definitely will NOT work. It is a natural innate behavior in cats and punishing him will not make it stop.

PROVIDE SEPARATE QUARTERS: It's not uncommon for cats to spray when they feel they are competing with other pets in the home. Try keeping them separated in different rooms and show the spraying cat lots of extra attention, make him feel he is wanted and not competing for your attention.

LICK THE PROBLEM: It's natural for cats to groom each other, and once they get started they can literally wash away bad feelings. Once or twice a week, wipe down all your cats with a wet towel. After grooming themselves, they may begin grooming each other, this will keep their aggression and spraying under control.

GIVE THEM EQUAL TIME: Paying more attention to one cat then another will often foster feelings of jealousy and competition. Try petting or stroking all your cats together or at the same time--providing they are all in one spot--. This will increase their social interaction and reduce competition, and maybe he will stop spraying.

CREATE A "NO SPRAY" ZONE: If your cat is repeatedly spraying in the same spot, applying a pet repellent may help turn him away. Many vets recommend repellents containing bitter apple or you may use mothballs, which are stronger.

DO A DEEP CLEANING: If you've recent;y moved and your cat started spraying, it could be traces of a former 'tenant' lingering behind. Scrub the floors, walls and rugs with a combination enzyme and bacteria cleaner, like "Outright Pet Odor Eliminator", there are many different kinds available at Pet retailers. Enzymes in the cleaners dissolve the urine crystals.

KEEP HIM CALM: Cats sometimes spray in response to change. Keeping his schedule consistent will help prevent problems before they start. Always keep his bed and litter box in the same places and always feed him in the same place, keep kitty to a routine.

PRACTICE PREVENTION: 90% of MALES that spray will stop entirely when you get them neutered. Vets recommend neutering/spaying at about 6 months or younger.

WHEN TO SEE HIS VET: Most cats spray to mark territory. Sometimes, however, it can be a warning sign that something serious is wrong, like diabetes, blocked urethra or a UTI...if you suspect any trouble or notice him straining to urinate....see his vet.

TOMORRO: EYE IRRITATIONS

Good afternoon. Today's topic: ARTHRITIS!!!

Is your once graceful cat shuffling around like Walter Brennan? Arthritis can be a real pain in the neck, hip, elbow, back, or anywhere it strikes. There are many types of arthritis and the one most likely to strike your pet is Osteoarthritis. Also called degenerative joint disease.

LIGHTEN HIS LOAD: Heavy pets are considerably more likely to suffer joint pain than their trimmer counterparts. Putting "Fluffy" on a diet is one of the best things you can do for her. Being slim reduces the stress on the joints snd can provide relief.

PUT HIS BEST PAW FORWARD: Regular exercise is vital to controlling the progression of arthritis. Try to take your pet on a walk 3 times a day for 20 minutes. Many cats really like going for walks, although they insist on which way they want to go, unlike a dog.

If you do not have a leash-trained cat, play vigorously with him for 20 minutes, 3 times a day. If 20 minutes seems too long and your pet is limping along, take him home and try shorter walks or play periods.

LET HIM SLEEP INSIDE: When it's cold and damp outside, your arthritic pet is going to hurt. So if he is an outdoors sleeper, bring him in during cold damp nights, your pet will reward you.

MAKE A COZY BED: If your pet sleeps on a hard surface, she will get some relief if you switch her to a soft cozy bed instead. In the cold damp climates you might consider a heated pet bed, available at most local pet retailers.

RAISE HIS TABLE: If your pet has a stiff neck, try putting his food and water bowls off the floor so he doesn't have to lower his head at mealtimes...food bowl stands are available at local pet stores.

HELP HER BE A SOCIAL CLIMBER: If you pet has trouble with stairs, you may want to install a ramp to help him go up and down without assistance.

TRY THE TOWEL TRICK: If your pet is having trouble walking, you can help her out by slinging a towel beneath his belly and using it to help him stand.

FOR DOGS ONLY: {I KNOW MANY OF YOU HAVE DOGS}
BUFFER IT WITH OTC: Give your DOG buffered aspirin, it can be a great help with arthritis pain. Experts recommend 1/4 of a 325-milligram tablet per 10 pounds of dog twice a day.

NEVER GIVE ASPIRIN TO A CAT. It can irritate the stomach.

TIPS FROM SISSY: I would like to add to your blog today about arthritis. I have had it in my hips since 2011 so I do know a thing or two about it. Dr. William prescribed Dasuquin twice a day for me. I also have a heated bed and steps to use to access Mommy's bed. You can see a pic of my steps on the bottom of my page. These small things have really helped me cope much better.

TOMORROW: Spraying!!{pew, what stinks?}

How was your weekend? Ours was very nice although it rained heavily all day yesterday & last night. There was even a Tornado Warning about 45 miles from here. Today it is very cold & windy with a high of only 45. Tonight we are forecast for 24 degrees. Remember, we live in south Mississippi!

Mommy & Nana finished up their Christmas shopping Friday. They do not like to wait until the last minute. They enjoyed a wonderful time together & they got everything on my list!

Stay warm & comfy cozy.

It's a double celebration!
I was all set to celebrate my 13th birthday today, and then surprise! It’s a brand new COTD badge too! I’m sure glad we prepared lots of goodies! Come on in, Miles & Q. Angel Maggie, that is if you dare walk under the big tall stepladder opened up over the doorway, festooned with a banner that reads “Lucky 13”. We have 13 tables set up and Mojo Blackbear is leading a serving crew of all black cats.

The food is a celebration of whiteness with cucumber sandwiches, chicken kabobs, seafood salad, lobster macaroni & (white) cheese, vanilla mice cream with white sprinkles. My darling Angel Shai is serving white wine and A. Mallow & O.J. have contributed their specialty White Lightning, if you’re feeling brave. Lady Dolly and Molly Rose made an amazing princess birthday cake for me and there’s lots for everyone.

Thanks a lot for the birthday balloons and goodies, the catnip frosted cupcakes are great! -- Evie

Good afternoon. Today we are discussing DEAFNESS. I can hear well, and I sure hope all of you can as well, but in case you have a hard time!!!

Some cats {and dogs} are born deaf. Others lose their hearing with age or chronic ear infections. Fortunately, with a little extra care, your pet can manage well.

Do they perk up their ears at the sound of their name, can they hear the doorbell, the sound of a can opening, if you notice any of these signs that used to get kitty{or doggie} running and all of sudden, nothing...your worst fear has been has been confirmed, she is not being stubborn, she is deaf.

GIVE HER A LEASH ON LIFE: Always take a deaf pet outdoors on a leash. They cannot hear predators or traffic noises, but you can, so leash her up to avoid any trouble or danger!

PRACTICE PATIENCE: Living with a deaf pet can be a challenge. They're often harder to train and may not play with you as often. You really need to show kindness and patience and it will pay off. Realize that you deaf pet wants to make things normal as much as you do, so be will willing to work gently to help her out.

TRY A NEW LANGUAGE: Your pet cannot hear your commands, but it is possible for them to see them. Hand signals are an excellent way to work with deaf dogs, Even cats that are deaf can benefit from a little signal training. Your vet can recommend a trainer to work with you and your pet.

LEAD HIM BY THE NOSE: Both dogs & cats have a keen sense of smell. In many cases you can summon them by creating olfactory waves---waving fish nibbles or a piece of dried liver through the air. Once your pet gets a whiff, he will realize you want him to come and will be right there.

BE ON TAP: To get your pets attention when she's sleeping or not looking in your direction, walk in front of her and tap her gently. A Deaf animal cannot hear the normal cues that someone is approaching. DO NOT run in the direction of the animal without warning, you will scare her.

SHOW HIM THE LIGHTS: At night, flashing the lights can help get your pets attention.As soon as she looks up, give her the hand signal that tell her what you want her to do {sit, stay, etc}. Then after the pet does what you want, reward her with love or a treat. Eventually your pet will come to realize when you flash the outside lights it is time to come in.

GET A COMPANION: Even if your deaf pet can't hear a stranger at the door, she can get clues from a companion. Dogs for instance will see the companion running to door and will follow. A deaf cat may watch her companion to see when it's time to eat or if someone is coming into the room...companion pets can be invaluable.

TODAYS Part 2 will be posted on the CMR ONLY! It is "When to see the VET"
Keep them suggestions coming in.
Tomorrow: FLEAS!!!

Today's topic: BAD STINKY BREATH!!!

ATTACK THE PLAQUE: Think about how your mouth would smell if you didn't brush your teeth for a few days, much less a few years.
Brushing twice a day would be ideal, but twice a week is sufficient.

START 'EM YOUNG: Brushing your cats teeth may sound like a scene in a horror flick, but if you begin when kitty is just a few months old, the experience can quickly become a pleasant one.

HOW TO BRUSH: Begin by gently handling and stroking your cats mouth for a few minutes a day. After a few days, lift up her lip on one side and with a piece of gauze on your finger, begin brushing in a circular motion on the outer surface of a few teeth. Do this each day by adding more teeth and eventually you will be able to use a miniature brush available in pet stores..be sure it is soft bristled and designed only for pets.

TICKLE THEIR TASTE BUDS: Some pet toothpastes come in flavors like poultry, beef or malt to make the experience more palatable for your pet. DO NOT USE HUMAN TOOTHPASTE THAT FOAMS! Pets cannot spit, and if they swallow the foam, it gives them upset stomachs.

REACH FOR A SPRAY: If your cat doesn't take kindly to having his teeth brushed, reach for a spray. Many pet stores sell mouth sprays for pets which do the same as minty sprays humans use. They are purely cosmetic.

CAN THE CANNED FOOD: Switching to a dry kibble may help to improve mouth odor, because it scrapes the surface of the teeth.

RICE TO THE OCCASION: Whole grains, like cooked brown rice, can help food move along the digestive tract more readily. Better digestion plays a role in better breath. We recommend adding a small portion of rice to your pets regular diet on a daily basis.

SCRAP THE SCRAPS: Breath often reflects the diet, if you're feeding your cat things like leftover spaghetti flavored with garlic, you have found the source of the stinky breath.

GO FOR GREEN: Chlorophyll tablets, available in pet stores, can aid digestion and sweeten your cats breath.

TOMORROW: BEGGING!!!

Good afternoon! Today's topic is CLAW PROBLEMS. Suggested by A MALACHI

TRIM THEM OFTEN: To prevent claws from getting too long and causing problems, they should be trimmed every 6-8 weeks. If your pet doesn't go outside{and on a sidewalk} more clipping may be necessary.

HOW TO TRIM FOR CATS: Press gently on cats paw to force the nails out with your thumb on top and hand holding the paw.
ONLY remove the sharp tip of the nail. DO NOT cut into the quick.

START THEM YOUNG: You should teach a kitten{or puppy} early on to sit still to have her nails trimmed. DO NOT lunge at her, however. To help your pet get used to the idea of pedicures, spend some time touching her paws before you start clipping. Once she is used to having her paws handled, she'll be less likely to rebel when you bring out the clippers.

TREAT THEM LIKE JEWELS: If your pet won't sit still for the clippers, maybe he will do better if you use a jewelers file. Just file and take off a short bit at a time. Jeweler's files can be purchased at Hardware stores.

WORK IN SHIFTS: When your pet is nervous, many vets recommend just clipping 1 paw per day. You do not need to do the all 4 paws at once. There is nothing wrong with stealth, cunning and patience.

REACH FOR THE SHAVING KIT: Many nail injuries occur when owners cut to close to the 'quick'. To staunch the bleeding, run the cut claw with a stypic pencil or a coagulant powder.
Another way to stop bleeding is to dip your pets paw in flour.

PROTECT WITH A CLEANING: If your cat has recently torn or cracked a nail and it is bleeding or in pain, you will want to clean the nail well to prevent infection from setting in. Wash the area well with soap and warm water, then gently towel dry and apply a small dab of antibacterial ointment.
If the bleeding does not stop, seek Veterinary assistance immediately.

TOMORROW: The aging cat!

We're so sorry you got fleas! We imagine that it is difficult to see them all too because you have so much fur they can hide in!I got them once too and Mom thinks it was from a dog too, even though he was using Advantage they can live on them for a short time.

... for coming to my birthday pawty yesterday and for giving me this wonderful surprise this morning!
Mom and I haven't been feeling so well lately and we have not been very active on CC but we miss everyone. Our CC family is always in our thoughts.
I had a great birthday. Mom and Dad gave me tuna treats along with lots of cuddles and a new catnip toy.
I'm having antibiotics to help me with an infection in my skin and although I don't like them at all, they are making me feel better.
Thank you for your friendship, lovely blogs, goodies and nice gifts! You are the best friends in the whole world!

FRIENDS

A friend is like a flower,
a rose to be exact.
Or maybe like a brand new gate
that never comes unlatched.
A friend is like an owl,
both beautiful and wise.
Or perhaps is like a ghost,
whose spirit never dies.
A friend is like a heart
that goes strong until the end.
Where would we be in this world

Hello Miles
What’s mew with you? Yesterday was a special day for us. We celebrated 8 years on Cat Channel. Wow, time sure does fly when having fun! We have shared laughs & tears, good times & bad times and our daily lives. We have seen many changes on CC in eight years, some for the better & some for the worse. We feel blessed to have met each & every one of you. We are grateful for your visits & votes and all of our awards, but most of all we treasure your furiendships.

Hi kitties. Today my topic is on DANDRUFF. Suggested by: LUKE & CASER

TAKE THE PLUNGE: Since dandruff is a sign of flaky skin, giving your cat regular baths will help wash the flakes away before the accumulate.To bathe your pet, use warm{NOT hot} water. Use a mild shampoo like baby shampoo and massage it well into your pets skin. Rinse thoroughly and dry him well.

FOR CATS: The BIG struggle isn't getting rid of the dandruff, it's getting them into the bath in the 1st place..{How true} For tips on bathing kitties.....OK..this will be part 2 today!

GO FOR MORE POWER: If baby shampoo doesn't help, try using a pet dandruff shampoo that contains sulfur or salicylic acid. Leave the later in place for about 5 minutes to the give the active ingredients time to work. You can buy medicated pet shampoos at most Pet store retailers. DO NOT use medicated shampoos intended for humans because they can be harmful for pets.

ADD OATMEAL TO BATH: The same colloidal oatmeal{Aveeno} that people use for dry skin can also relieve flaking skin in pets. Aveeno is marvelous for pets with dandruff because it moisturizes dry skin.

GIVE HIM A SPRITZ: If you live in a dry climate, spraying your cat's coat with an oil rinse will help lubricate the skin and lock in moisture. This is available in most pet stores.

GIVE KITTY THE BRUSH OFF: Grooming your cat regularly helps distribute natural oils evenly over dry skin, which will help keep dandruff down. Choose a brush that is not too harsh.

CHECK THE OIL: Sometimes we'
ll see dandruff when animals aren't getting enough fat in their diets. Giving your kitty fish-oil supplements will help improve metabolism of fats in skin tissue. Try mixing 1/2- 1 tsp of fish oil into your cats food daily. You can also use sunflower oil.

UPGRADE HER DIET: Some generic pet foods do not provide the full range of vitamins and minerals your pet needs to maintain healthy skin.

PART 2-HOW TO GIVE KITTY A BATH is only posted on the CMR. {Thanks}

TOMORROW: TAPEWORM. Keep the suggestions coming in.

a PURRfect week to all!
We are starting the week with a grateful heart. Thank you for always making us feel loved and truly special. I had the most wonderful 9th birthday and COTD celebration. Mom and Dad got me two cakes, one decorative sweet one which I dont eat and one yummy seafood kitty cake which is my favorite. It was such a happy day for all kitties as I shared my birthday with all my rescue siblings, Yak, Tong, Bullie-Boo and Angel Bait. We mark their birthdays on the same week as mine and it was so much fun for all as we got to eat lots of treats and wet food more than usual. Thank you CC family for making every birthday a memorable one. We love you all!!!

May your day be filled with love and sunshine.

xoxo

p.s. Mom took photos of our week long fun and posted Halloween and birthday celebration photos in my gallery. Please drop by and view them all.

Today we are talking about CAT FLU..yes, it is that time of year. We can get sick, too!!

FIGHT IT WITH FOOD: While a sick cat is rarely a hungry cat, it's still important to encourage her to eat. A Good diet will help keep her immune system strong, making her better able to fight off infection. To stimulate her appetite, try giving her a warm meal..add warm water to kibble to make a gravy or just pop her food in the microwave for a few seconds.

ORDER SOMETHING ODORIFEROUS: Since your cat probably has a stuffed-up nose, you can tempt her taste buds by giving her something with BIG flavor--and smell. Canned tuna is always good. You can place some on a plate or mix it with her regular food.

Cats also like high-protein foods like cottage cheese{Yummy}, cheese, scrambled eggs and chicken. Pop a skinless boneless chicken breast in the microwave and then cut it up real fine. Most cats will eat something like that.

LEND A HAND: If your finicky feline just sniffs your offerings and walks away, try dabbing a little food on her nose or paw.

GIVE HIM A HANKIE:Cats with flu often get an uncomfortable buildup of mucus around the eyes and nose. To help your kitty breathe better and feel more comfortable, keep the eyes and nose clean is important. Dampen a soft washcloth or a cotton ball with warm water and gently swab away the secretions. You can also use pre-moistened baby towelettes which contain soothing ingredients like lanolin and also vera.

SOOTHE WITH SALINE: If your cat is having difficulty breathing, giving him saline nose drops will thin the sticky mucus and help clear his nose.

HOW TO ADMINISTER: With the dropper in one hand, tip kitty's head back with your other. Place one or two drops in each nostril, then keep her head elevated for a minute to give them time to work. You can repeat this twice a day.

GIVE EYE RELIEF: You can also use saline drops to help relieve sore, weepy eyes.{if you use the same dropper, wash with warm water between uses} Just put a drop or 2 in each eye, repeat 3-5 times a day. Or you can use over-the-counter eyedrops containing boric acid.

HELP WITH HUMIDITY: Putting extra moisture into the air with a humidifier will help ease congestion and improve breathing.
Another alternative is to take your cat into the bathroom when you bathe or shower.

TAKE PROTECTIVE MEASURES: Vets often recommend a vaccine that's very effective at preventing cat flu. While it doesn't work 100% of the time, it will dramatically improve your cats chances for staying healthy.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: Cat flu is generally no more serious among the feline crowd then the common cold is for humans...if your kitty has a temperature over 101* for more then 24 hours, see the Vet, as it can lead to pneumonia, anemia or dehydration.

TOMORROW: Diarrhea. KEEP those suggestions coming in.

Hello Miles
Thank you for pawing by with prayers & good wishes for my visit with Dr. William today. I had a wonderful checkup. I weigh 12.4 lbs. My eyes, ears, heart, & teeth are all good. My blood work was good, BUN = 26. The only little red flag is my Creatinine = 2.6 (normal is 0.8-2.4) Doc said not to worry (easier said than done), since my BUN is normal and my BUN/Crea ratio is 10 which is good. If my BUN was high, then it would be cause for concern.

Also my EOS was high at .99 (normal is .10 -.79). EOS is an abbreviation for eosinophil, which is a white blood cell primarily involved in fighting allergies or parasites. I do not have parasites as my poop specimen was negative and my urine sample was all clear. The changes in our weather could be causing me to have some allergies, although I am not sneezing or wheezing.

The arthritis in my hips has not changed significantly since last year, so that is good mews. My thyroid is 2.2 which is very good for a 13 year old lady like myself. Vet tech Jolynn trimmed my nails. So all in all, a very good visit. But I am so glad to be home!

Hope your day is lovely too.
Kisses,

Good afternoon. Today we are discussing excessive meowing or caterwauling. Today's suggestion by: LEGEND & CASER}

SHOW 'EM THE DOOR: Some cats, like people, can never make up their minds. When they are inside, they want outside, and when they out, they want in. Put in a kitty door. Pet stores stock these by the dozen's ranging from $25. They are simple to install yourself in most cases.

FEED HER REGULARLY: Rather than feeding your cat only when she cries for food, try feeding her at the same time each day. Once she understands her feeding schedule, she will be less inclined to give you reminders. {we eat at 5:30pm daily and let mom know when she is late}

EXTEND DINNER HOUR: If you trust kitty not to over-indulge, try keeping his food bowl full of dry kibble. If he starts putting on the pounds, however, you may have to try a different strategy.

GIVE OUT EXTRA STROKES: Frequent meowing is often a gambit for more attention. Spending a little more quality time with your kitty--petting him or even playing with him or going for walks, will more then likely keep him quiet.

DRAW THE LINE: While most cats will cool the chatter once they get what they are asking for, others are rarely quiet. Whatever you do, do not encourage the chatter. Even if you hold out as long as you can but then respond, what he's learned is that the longer her meows, the more likely it is he will get your attention. Be strong and ignore him.

REWARD GOOD BEHAVIOR: Just as it is important to ignore her when she is talking, you will want to praise her when she is quiet. Try giving a treat when she is quiet or say "Good kitty" and give extra pets.
It is important to wait until she is quiet before giving treats.

TAKE TOUGH ACTION: The next time your chatty kitty goes into his meow cycle, try giving him a blast from a squirt bottle. They will soon realize it is no fun to meow if each time they open their mouth they get squirted.

HELP HER RELAX: Constant meowing in cats could be a sign of boredom or stress. Try introducing her to new toys, preferably the kind that will challenge her mind. A Cat track with an enclosed ball is always a good choice. You want to make her life more interesting.

WHEN TO SEE YOUR VET: While most meowing is a cry for attention, in some cases it means your cat is sick or in pain and needs to see his Vet.

Note what kitty is doing when he cries and that can provide valuable information for the Vet. EXAMPLE: if he is meowing by the litterbox, it could mean kitty is constipated or having trouble urinating. Listen for different tones in your cats meow..it could mean upper respiratory or lung problems or signs of illness.

Sunshine is filling our day...
& after a full day of rain yesterday it's pawsome to see it! Sammie dog made sure to let mom know she wanted to spend lots of time out since yesterday was a rain out so she's been out since dad left for work. We slept a lot of yesterday away but have made up for it today...MOL! Even all of the big kitties are getting into the action so that gets me & Sneakers wound up even more! We (Sneakers & I) did take a little break to 'help' mom sort laundry but for some strange reason she didn't appreciate it. Hmmm...could it be that jumping in the middle of the light blues & dragging a few of them into the reds wasn't right? Surely not...MOL!

Some of you may have noticed that mom changed my name on our page. That's because she's gotten in the habit of calling me Piggy (or Miss Piggy) instead of Piglet. My routine of being the first one to the wet food & shoving my face in other kitties' dishes hasn't changed but I have outgrown the shy little cartoon character from Winnie the Pooh...MOL! My sis Sneakers will never outgrow her name though...MOL!

Well got to run & see if mom needs any more helpful paws to do her chores so will meow at you again soon.

Loving hugs,
Piggy & NICE Girls

Today we are doing WORMS..suggested by MOJO!!! I will get to TAPEWORMS and ROUND WORMS at a later date....

WORMS!!! {Yuck}

WORM WHEN YOUNG: Almost every young animal will be born with worms or will pick them up from nursing their mother...Vets advise worming puppies and kittens as young as 6 weeks. You can pick up the medication at your Veterinarian's Office or a pet store.

CALM TUMMIES WITH KAOPECTATE: This over-the-counter medication is a safe, effective way to reduce diarrhea and calm your pets insides. Kaopectate is safe for cats and dogs, and it adds some solidity to the stool....to give the medication, draw some up in a syringe or a turkey baster. Tip your pets head back and squirt the medicine in the mouth toward the back of the tongue, hold his mouth closed and stroke his throat until, he swallows. A rule of thumb is to give 1 tsp of Kaopectate for each 10 pounds of weight twice a day.

STOP THE STALKING: Another way cats get worms is from eating mice, rabbits or other rodents. To reduce this risk, keep your cats indoors or on a leash in your yard.

KEEP YOUR YARD CLEAN: A variety of intestinal papasites thrive in soil thats contaminated with wastes from dogs and cats. In addition, pets can get an intestinal infection called giardiasis from drinking dirty water.

TAKE PRECAUTIONS: Some of the same medications that vets recommend for preventing heartworm, will help reduce certain intestinal worms.

WATCH THE CULPRITS: While it's extremely common for pets to get worms, catching them early makes the problem much easier to treat.

Check your pets bottom and stools at least 2-3 times a week if you suspect worms...look for rice-shaped tapeworm segments or the longer spaghetti like roundworms..In addition you should have your Vet check your pets stools once a year.

Keep them suggestions coming in!!! Tomorrow we do HAIRBALLS!!!

Hi Miles
How was your weekend? Ours was pawsome! The Great Pumpkin came to our house Friday night and brought us mew toys for Halloween. I like the pumpkinman on a string toy. Caturday was chilly & windy. After having 80 degrees all week, it turned downright cold with 54 degrees for our high and 32 for our low on Caturday. Brrrr! Our Nana attended her 55th high school reunion (Class of 1959) Caturday. Nana always carries a photo album of us in her purse. She said everyone oohed & aahed over her beautiful grandkitties. Of course they did!

Enjoy a meowy Monday.
Purrs to you,
K Casper Todd

Monday kitten pounces
We know you've missed us grabbing your tails & chasing you all weekend (MOL) so we're going to catch up today.

It's a very blustery day outside but our silly dog insisted on going out to bark before sunrise. We never did figure out what she was barking at though. Silly mutt...MOL!
We're all doing great & have been very rambunctious since we last meowed at you. Mom had to take away a string that I (Piggy) found in sis' room. Mom says they're dangerous but I act like they're spaghetti so none are allowed to be in reach of our paws. It's a bummer but mom says it's better than needing an emergency vet trip. Hmmm....guess I'll agree with that because I don't like rides or strangers! Since that 'toy' has been removed we have no choice but to chase our older fursisters through the house & have several wrestling matches each day...MOL! Only Monkey will wrestle with us now but she's a pawful for either of us to handle alone. No problem though because we gang up on her & she loves it...MOL!

Well got to run so mom can get something to eat (hmmm...sounds like a purrfect idea to us too) so will leave you a tuna & catnip sandwich (in honor of National Sandwich day) & give you our sweetest purrs. Have a pawtastic Monday!

TODAY we are talking about DIABETES in Cats...today's topic bought to you by MIKE.

DIABETES IN KATS:

KEEP THEM TRIM: Being overweight can make diabetes much more difficult to control..we see these 16-pound cats that are producing insulin, but not enough.
To keep kitty trim and at a healthy weight the Vet recommends measuring her/his food to make sure you are not over feeding. You should hold back on the table scraps, which can pile on the pounds. {but we love them so}

SWITCH TO A HIGH-FIBER DIET: Giving kitty high-fiber foods can help stabilize the rate at which fuels enter the cells, keeping keeping blood sugar levels more constant.

KEEP THOSE PAWS MOVING: Exercise is important because it helps control weight. In addition, the more your kitty exercises, the less insulin her/his body requires.

GIVE MEDICINE REGULARLY: Perhaps the most important aspect of treating diabetes is to prevent blood sugar levels from swinging widly from high to low. That is why VETS recommend giving your pet medication at the same time each day.

REWARDS FOR GOOD BEHAVIOR: NO body enjoys getting shots, your pets included. To make the experience as comfortable as possible, be extremely loving, gentle and patient. After the shot reward kitty with plenty of LOVE and perhaps a small treat.

KEEP A SWEET HANDY: Giving kitty insulin will sometimes cause blood sugar to plunge too low, a condition called HYPOGLYCEMIA, so be sure to always have on hand a source of sugar if you have a diabetic pet...some vets recommend a small finger of honey or Karo syrup.

IF your pet experiences HYPOGLYCEMIA please take to the Vet ASAP.

Remember to keep the ailments coming in...tomorrow we will cover Feline acne.

This month we will be writing about KITTY HOME REMEDIES. I have a good list going so far, so continue to send in ailments you want me to write about.

Today's ailment comes from my brother, Winston and he chose AGGRESSION as today's ailment because we are dealing with it on a daily basis with Sheba.

FOR CATS ONLY: AGGRESSION!!!

Give a squirt of water: You can discourage aggression in some cayts by squirting them with water, keep a loaded bottle ready then squirt him/her if they get too tough. Purrty soon they will get the hint. {this actually will not work for Sheba}

Plan ahead: If you can figure out what is behind your cat attacks--if he/she always leaps when you're rustling newspaper, for example--you can forstall the ambush by tossing him/her a fave toy before the attack.

Keep Kitty busy: Cats have loads of energy, and they'll be less aggressive if you help him/her burn off steam in a more socially acceptable way. Having vigorous play sessions with exciting toys like balls will wear kitty out and they will nap rather then attack.

You can also buy calming remedies at your local pet store, or retail store or online.

This is it for today..please keep the suggestions coming and you'll be mentioned in my blog.

This is my final blog for the month & it's also the spookiest night of the year! Unfortunately all of the trick or treaters around here may freeze their tails off though unless they're dressed really warm! We're supposed to get snow! Yes you read right because I said SNOW. Our high today is only going to get in the low 40s so I guess we'll be doing a lot of snuggling later on...MOL!
