Good afternoon kitties. Today's topic is: DEPRESSION!!!

No one greets you at the door. The rattle of the leash goes un-noticed. Even the scent of food doesn't get Fido or Fluffy coming. It's not uncommon for pets to come down with depression! Causes might be from illness, loneliness, losing a friend or seasonal.

MAKE EVERY DAY A PLAY DAY: Throwing yourself into some wholehearted play with your pet is perhaps the best way for her to take her mind off her troubles. Get on the floor, tickle her tummy and just be silly.

INCLUDE HIM IN YOUR FUN: If you've recently had a new baby, don't separate the baby from the pet, instead include him in the fun, allow your pet to sniff baby and lay with baby. If you pay too much attention to baby and ignore pet, you are asking for problems.

PLANT SURPRISES: Try hiding some of her favorite treats so she has to 'hunt' for them, this will give Fido or Fluffy to do instead of sitting around moping.

CALL HOME: Dogs and cats may feel lonely when left home alone all day. To perk up your pet, periodically call home and leave a message on the answering machine..hearing your voice will do wonders.

CHEER HER UP WITH MUSIC: Both Dogs and Cats often enjoy music and are less likely to feel depressed when something pleasant is playing. Try leaving the radio on if you are gone all day!

GIVE HIM TIME TO MOURN: It's not uncommon for pets to mourn when they lose a companion....in some cases, they can suffer deep depression. Pet's demonstrate a deep love for one another, just as people do. There is no instant cure for grief, give your pet plenty of time to mourn, give him plenty of love and attention as soon he will bounce back!

BRING HOME A NEW FRIEND: While it's not possible to 'replace' a friend, many pets will feel better when another furry friend joins the home, it will give them another companion to play with.

FOR CATS ONLY:
GIVE A ROOM WITH A VIEW: Without a lot of stimulation, many cats get bored and depressed. To help Fluffy stay entertained, make sure she has a window sill or a cat perch. She can watch birds, butterflies and even people and kitty will be entertained for hours.

FOR ADDED ENTERTAINMENT: Put a bird feeder outside her fave perching window, many kitties will watch the ongoing show for many hours.

TOMORROW: MANGE

Mom and TC are ok, but TC wasn't too happy with mom. Tehehehe!!!!

♥ When mom's nephew Nathan came over to put in new thermostat in her car Sunday and took off the protector cover he found a mousie nest also discovered they had also chewed on the harness wires. Luckily the wires were still in tact so Nathan went to Auto Zone to buy some special shrink tape to do each wire.

♥ Sunday; Mom raked most all the Curly Willow leaves out of her flower bed in the front yard then dad came out to help her pick them all up. Later, mom mowed the front yard with mulching it in.

Good afternoon kitties!!! Today's topic is all about those nasty UTI's. Suggested by HT Jesse cause he gets them!!!

She used to go all day without a break, but lately your pent-up pet can hardly wait to go outside. And no sooner does she got out and she wants back in, then has to go out again. UTI's aren't just the 'bane' of bathroom hopping humans, kitties and dogs can get them, too. UTI's make it difficult to urinate. What's more, the inside of the urinary tract can get painfully inflamed.

POUR SOME JUICE: It's a home remedy for people that also works for pets. Cranberry juice, orange juice and other citrus juices boost the acidity of urine, reducing the number of bacteria and helping relieve discomfort. The problem with juices is getting your pet to actually drink it. Try mixing an ounce in with her breakfast food. You can TRY to put out a bowl and see what happens.

PROVIDE FREQUENT POTTY BREAKS: When urine remains in the bladder for a long time, any bacteria that happen to be floating around have more time to multiply, causing infection levels to rise. A pet that only urinates 2 times a day will more likely develop an infection more then one that goes 10 times a day.

ASK FOR ASSISTANCE: DOGS ONLY: Your dog may have great control, but if the only time she gets to go outside is before work and after work, bacteria have plenty of time to do their dirty work. If you can't get home during the day perhaps you can ask a neighbor to let her out for you.

GET THOSE PAWS MOVING: Most dogs and cats can't go around the block without making a deposit. Taking at least two 20 minute walks a day will increase urination and reduce the risk of infection.

WHEN TO SEE HER VET: While most UTI's will clear up on their own even without treatment, occasionally bacteria will swim upstream, causing a dangerous kidney infection.
Symptoms of Kidney infection include frequent or difficult urination and possible blood in the urine. Some pets get feverish and lethargic.
Don't take chances if you notice any changes in your pets normal urinary habits. She may need oral antibiotics to prevent a small infection form turning into a major problem.

Follow the Vets advice and always follow label instructions on any medication..The best time to give antibiotics is right after urination.

Keep them suggestions coming in!! Tomorrow: EAR MITES

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!

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!!!

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.

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, Commish, 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.

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.

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!

Good afternoon. Today we are discussing TAPEWORMS. Nobody suggested it, so I just decided to do it. Had to go online and research this.

WHAT ARE TAPEWORMS: Tapeworms are the most common internal parasite in adult cats. They live in the small intestines, and vary in length from less than 1" to several feet. The scolex {head} of the parasite fastens itself to the wall of the gut using hooks and suckers. The body is composed of segments that contain egg packets. To eliminate tapeworm infection, the head must be destroyed. Otherwise the worm will regenerate.

The body segments containing the eggs are passed in the feces. These are called proglottids. Fresh moist segments are capable of moving. They are about .25" long. Occasionally, you might see them in the fur around your cat's anus or in her stool. When dry, they resemble grains of rice.

TAPEWORM SPECIES: There are 2 common species found in cats; both are transmitted by an intermediate host. DIPYLIDIUM CANINUM is acquired from fleas or lice that harbor immature tapeworms in their intestines. These insects acquire the parasite by eating tapeworm eggs. The cat MUST bite or swallow the insect to become infested. The tapeworm TAENIA TEANIAFORMIS is acquired by eating rodents, uncooked meats, raw freshwater fish, or discarded animal parts.

TREATMENT: Praziquantal is one of the most effective medications for both common specials. Other suitable treatments are Fenbendazole and Espiprantal. Use only under Veternary guidance. Deworming must be combined with control of fleas and lice, in the case of DIPYLIDIUM CANINUM, and by preventing roaming and hunting in the case of other tapeworms.

TOMORROW: CLAW PROBLEMS. Keep them suggestions coming in.

Oh my goodness ...
... we've had so much going in that I've not been keeping in touch with dear furriends like you. Mom and Dad spent some time in Texas earlier in the year visiting with Mom's sister who had terminal cancer. She is in heaven now, and I noticed her kitty has crossed the Rainbow Bridge in the opposite direction, joining his furrever mom in people heaven.

After that, the pawrents flew to Illinois to visit with family members they've not seen in years. They got nearly to Chicago's O'Hare Airport when a massive storm shut everything down. The plane diverted to Des Moines Iowa overnight. Dad get them a room and a car ... the next day they drove 10 hours to reach family members in Southern Illinois. If they'd waited till noon and taken the flight to Chicago, they'd have been stuck at the airport for days due to flooding ... would not have been able to see all their family. It all worked out for the best.

Coming home, they got notice by email at 4 a.m. that their return flight had cancelled. Dad got them one for early afternoon, and they headed to O'Hare Airport. When Dad checked on other flights to the west coast, he was told they'd put them on a wait list, but there were already about 50 people on the list ... for every flight to the coast. Mom and Dad had a nice lunch, Mom walked about a mile up and down the concourse to get her exercise, and they got on the plane at 1:30 p.m. It actually got them home. Mom could not believe they didn't end up in Montreal or New Mexico ... she almost kissed the ground when they arrived home.

Dad's sister is now in a facility for people with Alzheimer's. The pawrents have dealt with a few other things, but Mom is finally online and visiting those near and dear to my heart.

I hope all is well with you. Please forgive me for not being here sooner and more often. Dropping off a vote, purrs and whisker tickles, and some tuna treats I baked myself. A.Q. Cherish and Mom June.

Come visit me, A. Q. Cherish & K. Thunder forever.

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.

Good evening all..today were are discussing that awful stuff called DIARRHEA{upset tummy, too}. Today's suggestion by: TOBY!!

TRY YOUR HAND AT BLAND: When your cat is ready to eat again, keep her digestive system calm by giving her cooked white rice mixed with boiled hamburger or skinless white meat chicken. Vets recommend mixing 2 parts rice to one part meat and feeding your cat small amounts every for hours for 2 days.

FIRM IT WITH FIBER: If your cats{or dogs} stools are still a little soft--either after or during her bland diet, try adding a small amount of Metamusil to her food.Depending on your pets size, he recommends giving between 1 1/4 tsp and 1 TBS of Metamusil a day for 2-3 days....just mix it water and pour it on her food.

KEEP HIS LIQUID LEVELS HIGH: Since Diarrhea can rapidly deplete the body of essential fluids, be sure to keep her water bowl full. It's also a good idea to fill a separate bowl with Gatorade...Like other sports drinks, Gatorade will help replenish minerals the body loses and needs, like potassium and sodium.

CUT OUT THE DAIRY: Most adult animals have difficulty digesting milk because they lack the enzyme{lactase} needed to digest a sugar{lactose} in milk. If you are feeding your pet milk and she has diarrhea, cut the milk out and you should see results in a few days.

SUPPRESS THE STRESS: Visiting the Vet, moving or having a new pet at home are just a few of the things that can upset your pet. To prevent emotional upheavals from getting the upper hand, talk to her gently and give her plenty of reassurance.

SAY NO TO DRUGS: While there are a number of OTC medications that can help ease the runs, many vets feel it's best to let the illness run its course.

SUGGESTIONS FROM TOBY: 1 tsp of yogurt daily for upset tummies and he recommends Mashed sweet potatoes for diarrhea and says they "really do work".

TOMORROW: DANDRUFF/DRY SKIN...keep them suggestion coming in.

Yesd, Casey,
When the Miami Six rejoined the team, Mike asked us to take over keeping the roster assignments straight. First, adding in the six of us who play on the team, then staying current with team changes. You may notice that none of the Miami Six players are on that earlier roster. If it's confusing, just delete it, okay?... Kiwi

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.

Today we are discussing EXCESSIVE GROOMING: {Psychogenic Alopecia} today's suggestion is from: SPANKY JACK

CAUSES: It is important to differentiate what causes over-grooming, it could be stress related or pain related. Take kitty to the VET 1st if you suspect over grooming to find the cause before you treat it.

If there is a painful area, the licking will be focused there. For example, back pain or anal sac impactation will prompt the cat to lick just that particular area.

Where a cat focuses her licking can give clues to the root of the problem, which could be any number of things--fleas, a neurologic problem, a chiropractic problem, parasites, food allergies, or a reaction to dust, pollen, or mold.

Conditions that are NOT skin related but can cause over grooming can include cystitis, hyper-thyroidism, and anal sac problems.

SPOTTING THIS BEHAVIOR: Cats spend about 30-40% of their days grooming themselves, and much of the remaining time is spent napping. So it is common for cat owners to have no clue there is a problem until they notice significant hair loss, bald spots or scabs from over grooming.

HEPING A CAT WITH PSYCHOGENIC ALOPECIA: When all medical causes have been ruled out or resolved and you've narrowed the problem to an issue of obsessive behavioral licking, treatment should be focused on stress reduction.

EATING HABITS: Cats like to eat at the same time everyday, so make feeding time very consistent. Keep food bowls in the same location, and of course, keep them clean.

LITTERBOXES: Keep litter boxes in the exact location and keep them clean using mild soap and hot water and a disinfectant.

INTERACTING WITH PEOPLE: Most cats enjoy interacting with people, so take time every day to make sure your cat's emotional needs are being met. You can involve physical activity with interactive toys such as a laser pointer. {We love this toy}. Brushing your kitty is beneficial. MOST cats love to be brushed an d find it enjoyable.

HIGH UP PLACES: Provide kitty with hide boxes, access to high perches, like wall shelving, and keep scratching posts in kitty's play room. You can also consider window perches to help provide entertainment.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: You need to be patient, as excessive grooming problems usually take some time to resolve. But with consistent attention, affection, and routine, most kitties do get their over grooming under control. They re-grow their hair, and their quality of life improves within a few months.

TOMORROW: Cat flu{it's getting cold in some areas} Keep these suggestions coming in.

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.

TOMORROW: EXCESSIVE GROOMING!

Today we are discussing the following solutions:
FELINE ACNE--suggested by EVIE!!!

FELINE ACNE:

CLEAN IT DAILY: Gently washing your cats face with a mild soap and washcloth will remove surface bacteria and help break down material that may be plugging oil glands. To be most effective, the washcloth should be a little warmer than a baby's bath, but not scalding, Gently scrub, then rinse well with warm water to remove the soap.
DO NOT USE HUMAN DEODORANT SOAPS, which can irritate.

ADD SOME HEAT: Another way to help open clogged glands is by holding a hot pack to the area. The Vet recommends wetting a cloth with hot {NOT SCALDING} water. Wring it out and hold it to the affected area for about 5 minutes or until the cloth cools down. Do this once a day until the acne goes away.

REACH FOR ECHINACCA: Given orally, this infection battling herb, which is commonly sold in health food stores, may act like a mild antibiotic, stopping acne from the inside out.

RAID THE PLANTER: Applying a thin layer of gel from the aloe vera plant will help ease discomfort cause by painful acne. If you do not have an aloe vera plant, you can buy the gel at most health food stores.

DON'T SWAP MEDICINES: Drugs made for people are unlikely to be helpful when given to pets. Using acne products meant for humans will more then likely worsen the acne.

AVOID THE SQUEEZE: When a serious acne outbreak is making your pet uncomfortable, you may be tempted to squeeze the pimples yourself. DO NOT do it, squeezing pimples can be painful and in some cases will cause infected material to spread beneath the skin, causing a deeper infection.

LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE: While most outbreaks of acne will stick around for a few days and then disappear, sometimes it's a constant problem. It may be that there is something in your pets environment--a certain type of flea collar, or the presence of household pesticides that's causing the problem. Try substituting an herbal flea collar which can be purchased at most Pet stores.

KEEP those suggestions coming in. Tomorrow we will cover Worms.

♥ On Saturday morning (11/01) Mom & dad gave us our pawdicures then the Revolution Flea treatments then we got our treats. Mom even had dad hold Sausha #22506 by the scruff of her neck so mom could do her nails. She started with the dew claws and mom was shocked at how long Sausha's were as they were close to growing into her skin. Mom had to use the open clippers just to cut her dew claws then the regular clippers to shorten them more then her other nails were so long, too. Sausha put up a good fight, but mom had no choice but to clip them. She then did Teakee's #25544 nails after seeing Sausha's, but luckily Teakee's weren't as bad. That was the first time ever mom & dad did their nails!!!!

♥ After they got done with our pawdicures they went down to neighbor Sarah's to do some work there so we didn't get on CC cuz it was late when they got back.

♥ Sunday morning (11/02) Mom unfortunately hurt her back while scooping out Patch Boy's, TC & Sissee's #11531 litter boxes and was almost in tears plus she couldn't stand up for about 5 minutes or so then she had to try to walk. Dad was still in bed asleep. She did manage to do some yard work, but very carefully Sunday afternoon then down to neighbor Sarah's to do very little there. Mom's back is still pretty sore and didn't sleep well last night.

♥ Michael brought dad's new Dell 17" Laptop this morning and got it all set up. Now dad's having fun!!!!

♥ TC is doing great and goes to see Dr. Nancy Friday morning for his mouth check up. PATCH GIRL #12767 is done with her antibiotics, but still not 100% well. Mom's keeping close watch on her.

KELSEES KAT REMEDIES
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.

KELSEES KAT REMEDIES
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.

Hi there, Caser,
Are the monthly schedules posted somewhere? Anyway, since I'm handling the RR roster, would you please send me the schedule, so I'll know which of our games will be posted and which can be ignored, if any. I'll share it with Scootie, as he checks on the Cubbies for roster changes, etc. Thanks... Kiwi

Happy Halloween Casey
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!
It's been great meowing with all of you this month but meowmy says I have to let the Dynamic Duo (Piglet & Sneakers) take their turn in November. SIGH...so many sisterly paws = less blogging time for me & our secretary mom won't let us on-line without being supervises. Hmmm...wonder why not? MOL!

Well I've got to run help mom ice the cupcakes she made so will meow at you again on my next turn at the keyboard. Have a safe & happy Halloween dear furiends!

Big hugs & ghoulish grins,
Q Trixie & NICE Girls

How the witches got there,

But they won't be there much longer
because I'm sending them to

You've been Witch Kissed!

Before the warts begin to spread,

Happy Halloween Caser
Princess Diaries: Are you gonna break out your Race Car Jacket, I bet you look debonair ...Yes, it's that time of year when our parents make total fools of us..My silly Daddy bought me my Halloween costume this year...Really, how could he demean himself like that...The poor man actually went to Petsmart all by himself and picked it out....Geesh, how could he lower himself and stoop to my evil mothers level...You have to know she was behind it...I shudder to think what the check-out lady really thought when she saw my Daddy with a costume for a Cat...Mind you she did ask if his DOG minds being dressed up...DOG my tail....Of course, Daddy explained it was for his Cat and the lady said "how cute, does she mind getting dressed up"?....Hello, nobody asked me if I mind, they just dress me up like a fool and take pictures of me and make me wear the dumb costume till I shake it off...Shake it off, shake it off, shake it off, shake it off, cause the parents are gonna play, play, play and the haters are gonna hate, hate hate but I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake...Oops, sorry I digress...Anywho, I can not believe my two parents conspired to dress me up for Halloween and to make matters worse they dressed me up as a Dinosaur....They have no shame, no decency, no class....I'm a Princess after all and they totally ignored Royal Protocol and put me in such an embarrassing situation with no regard for my dignity...How rude!!!....To make matters worse they took a million pictures of me and plastered them all over the world for everyone to see...That's what happens when you use social media for your own amusement....How could they do such an evil thing...They have broken my trust and I must never let them live this down...Between you and me, as you can see by my CC Profile Picture, I do make the most adorable Dinosaur but I must never let them know that I secretly think I look fabulous....I hope you have a wonderful Halloween and aren't to embarrassed by your Mommy & Daddy...Don't let them know that dressing up is really fun but I wonder, where's the candy?...Purrs, The Princess Dinosaur

PS: I don't know why my Halloween pictures won't load upright :(
