How We Met

I was looking to adopt a cat. I contacted someone who fostered them. She had two cats and I was going choose one. When I saw the cats, Buddy came right over to me and he even let me pick him up. He was so loving and friendly that I knew then he was the one for me. When I named him, I liked the name Buddy. The name really does fit him too. He is like a real buddy to me.

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!

Soft Friday purrs
This has been a very stressful week for our CC family but made even more so by the quickly approaching holiday next week. This is a hard time of year for our mommy because she lost her mom two years ago (in December) & Monday (Nov 25th) will mark the one year crossing anniversary of beloved Zaboo. She hasn't been in the mood to blog much but hopefully she'll feel better about things soon.

Dad/mom's brother-in-law (& oldest sis) will make it to the family dinner on Thanksgiving since he'll have his dialysis the day before & day after the holiday, so we're glad to have a bit of happy mews.
Big sis just dropped her jeep off for repair this morning after they lost control on ice earlier in the week. Luckily baby Risten wasn't in the vehicle at the time & sis/hubby are okay, but the jeep wasn't in very good shape after they creamed a mailbox during the slide & requires quite a bit of body work. We're just happy they're both okay & are thankful they have good insurance.

All of the NICE kitty girls are doing fine & are as rowdy as ever, plus the outside kitties are all doing good too considering the shocking cold/snow we got so early in the season. We're supposed to warm up into the 50s over the weekend so it should all disappear...at least for a while.
Well that's about all we have to meow right now so we'll wrap our furry paws around each of you & give you a hug. Will meow at you more next week.

Sweet kisses,
Piggy, Sneakers & NICE Girls

Good morning kitties! Today: The "EYES" have it: "EYE IRRITATIONS"

Your cats is spending more time pawing her crusty eyes then playing with her catnip toys. One of the most common eye problems in pets is conjunctivitis. {Our AJ had this}. Also know as 'pink-eye', it is an inflammation of the membrane covering the inside of the eyelids and the front of the eye.

WIPE IT OUT: To speed healing and make your pet more comfortable, you'll want to clean the discharge from her eyelids. Wet a wet cloth or a cotton ball with warm water, squeeze it out and gently wipe the 'goop' from around your pets eye. Repeat twice daily or as often as needed.

TRY A SCRUB: Instead of using water, you may want to try to OTC eye scrub. Eye scrubs are pH Balanced and may cause less stinging then water. You can buy eye scrubs at your local pet retailer, ones made for humans can be more harsh for your pet.

HELP HIM SHED SOME TEARS: While eye scrubs can help keep the lids clean, you'll also want to wash the surface of the eye. A Good way to do this is with artificial tears, which can help wash away particles that may be causing the problem.

CODDLE HER WITH A COMPRESS: Covering your pets eyes with a damp warm compress can be very soothing. Wet a soft cloth in lukewarm water, wring it out and gently hold it across her eyes for five minutes. This can make your pets eyes feel much better, and it goes a long way toward keeping her eyes clean.

TAKE HIM TO THE BARBER: Regular grooming can help prevent eye irritations before they get started. Fur in your pets eyes can cause irritation that can lead to conjunctivitis if its matted up around the corners of the eye. Brushing the hair back away from the eyes or getting a groomer to cut off the excess hair will prevent irritations.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: While conjunctivitis isn't difficult to treat, and eye infection can result in permanent damage, so you'll want to see vet at the 1st sign of problems...he may give you eye drops, or an ointment for the eye or a mild antibiotic if the eye is infected. {our Vet gave AJ an ointment to use 2 times daily}

KEEP The suggestions coming in!! TOMORROW: The "EYES" have it, part 2: VISION PROBLEMS!!!

Turns out the thermostat needs replaced so he will be back this weekend to do that. He told mom it's ok to drive the car as she has one of those "pre-warning" thermostats which lets her know it needs replaced soon.

♥ Like many of you, we too, do not have our hearts into being on CC with Dad Ron's and now Dad Rudy's Forever Sleeps. So much sadness with sick humans and kits.

♥ Mom got the Shark vacuum out this morning to use in the front room, then she washed a load of whites, outside kits' bedding and a load of cleaning rags.

♥ PATCH GIRL #12767 will be taking her last antibiotic pill Thursday morning. She sounds lots better, but mom thinks she still not completely well. Mom will just keep close watch over her. We Thank You for the prayers.

Hello Buddy
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.

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?}

It's frigid outside!!
The sun is shining but the temperature is only 10 degrees...with a 'real feel' of -11!! We're only supposed to reach 18 with a low of 11 tonight but they're saying a warm up is on the way. We (& our outside kitties) sure hope so!
We're sorry we didn't make it on to blog yesterday but mom got a major headache after taking Sammie for her walk. Since we're still waiting for the bus to pick up the kids (2 hr delay) her walk will be later so mom said we could blog before she goes out to freeze with the dog.
We're doing pretty well...although I (Sneakers) have a little cold in my eye. It's not bad but mom is torturing me with antibiotic ointment twice a day. Piggy has been a little maniac with all of us lately & she's napping right now so that she can pounce at all of us again later...MOL! Well the kids just left so I guess that means it's dog walking time for mom. Better her than me...MOL!

Hello Buddy
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.
Kisses,

early
for us is 2:45-3am on janet's work mornings and anytime on wed-nesdays after she's home from an early morning walk, then week-ends anytime between 3:30-4am as she picks 8 off both pages to blog to and well that's it till she's back up on monday/tues and then again thurs/fri mornings. sandy,ab,haley,angels

had enough to track a cat/sleet kitchen sinker to start the light to moderate rain then a sinker in reverse to end out to-night and tomorrow morning, so likely delays in going anywhere tomorrow.

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, Buddy, 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. -- 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!!!
