Hi Arty
Yep, Mom did that to me again today. It's also because I get chilly after my sub-q treatments and being cold outside.... But my favorite thing is to burrow under a blanket in a warm lap and take a nice, long nap. That is the most pawsome thing.
I hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving filled with love and lots of yummies.
Love,
Sakura

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

I had a pawtastic day celebrating...
& it's all because of you & the rest of my wonderful furiends! Thank you for coming by to celebrate my life on my 1 year crossing anniversary yesterday! I loved hearing your soft purrs & sweet meows as you honored my memory & the beautiful life I had on earth. It's great to be remembered & loved by each of you & I can think of no greater gift than the beautiful furiendships of my CC furiends. Thank you again for being part of my life & for always being there to support our entire family when we need it most.

We probably won't be doing anything but daily voting until next week since it will be a busy weekend for the family.
I'm giving all of you a generous dusting of my special golden angel dust to keep you safe & warm during the beginning of the very busy holidays! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!

~Best Thanksgiving~ By Joanna Fuchs

Thanksgiving is here, so our minds have turned
To what time has taught us, to what we've learned:
We often focus all our thought
On shiny things we've shopped and bought.
We take our pleasure in material things,
Forgetting the pleasure that friendship brings.
If a lot of our stuff just vanished today,
We'd see the foundation of each happy day
Is special relationships, constant and true,
And that's when our thoughts go directly to you.
We wish you a Thanksgiving you'll never forget,
Full of love and joy—your best one yet!

Purrs of love,
Angel K Zaboo

Good evening kitties. Today's topic: FIGHTING. Suggested by my sister, KALI!

Every night your cat goes out looking for trouble--and comes back looking he tangled with a blender. While fighting is scary to watch and dangerous for the combatants, it's extremely common!

DON'T GET IN THE MIDDLE: Dogs and cats in the heat of battle aren't discriminating about what or who they bite. Many owners have been mauled while trying to break up a fight, so keep your hands clear. If you feel you must break up a fight, throw a blanket over them, this will protect your hands.

GO DEEP & LOUD: When you see a fight brewing, interrupt the aggression with the loudest, deepest "NO" you can muster. Pets associate a low-pitched voice with a threatening growl and will take it more seriously.

GIVE THEM A BLAST: If the squabble occurs in the vicinity of a garden hose, turn it on your fighting pets...this will "cool" them off.

SIT OUT MINOR BRAWLS: When dogs or cats meet, you can expect a certain amount of posturing, hissing, growling, or tussling. In most cases it is their way of getting acquainted. Even if they start squabbling, chances are the ruckus will calm down in a minute or 2.

FOR CATS ONLY!!

GIVE THEM SEPARATE QUARTERS: Bringing a new cat into the family can raise tension for both the newcomer and the the resident cat. To keep fights to a minimum, provide separate litter boxes, and feed them in separate rooms til they get used to each other.

PROVIDE AN EASY EXIT: When bringing 2 cats together for the 1st time, make sure there is an escape route. This will help prevent them from feeling trapped.

GET THEM IN TWOS: If you want to have 2 or more cats, get them at the same time as kittens. Cats that grow up together are less likely to fight then those they meet later in life.

KEEP THEM INDOORS: If you really love your cat[s] keep her indoors...if you must put them outdoors, build an outdoor enclosure or kitty playground!

TOMORROW: DEPRESSION!

Hi Arty,
How are you doing today? It is sunny here but very chilly. Mom took Dad today to get his stiches out. Woo Hoo, just in time for the next surgery tomorrow. Will it ever end??? Mom and Dad have to be at the Surgical Center at 5 AM so it will be an early to bed tonight. Otherwise, Mom does have things in order for Thanksgiving. It will just be a scaled back Holiday this year. If per chance I don't get to visit tomorrow, may I now wish you and your family a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving Day. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

Mom rushed outside to the back yard to get TC in cuz that stuff terrifies him, but when mom grabbed him, she tripped over a bucket of stuff of dad's and fell on the ground holding TC. 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.

♥ Today, mom got all her Daffodil bulbs planted so now she just has the Tulip bulbs left. She then cut all the dead roses off the bushes.

Good afternoon kitties. Todays topic is "EAR MITES". Suggested by: COMMISH CASER!!!

A gentle pat behind the ears no longer brings a grin to your furry friends face. Instead it fires up a scratching frenzy that sends her back legs whirling like an eggbeater.

Ear mites are readily passed between animals, so unless your pet spends most of her time alone, they can be difficult to prevent.

CLEAR THE DEBRIS: When treating your pet for ear mites, it is important to clear away the crust inside the ear before using medication, otherwise the mites will tale cover underneath the crust. Using a small dropper, deposit several drops of mineral oil inside the ear canal and wait for crust to soften. Then fill a rubber ear-cleaning syringe with equal parts of warm water and white vinegar and gently flush the debris out of the ear.

GET A DROP ON THEM: Once your pets ears are clean, vets usually recommend putting a few drops of an OTC medication containing pyrethrins..this is an insecticide made from chrysanthemums. You can purchase medicated at pet stores. Place the drops in each ear according to direction on bottle, the massage the base of the ears for 3-5 minutes to allow the medicine to penetrate.

TRY AN OIL TREATMENT: Instead of using medications, you may want to try mineral oil or baby oil once every day or so. This will smother some of the mites. Heat the oil til it just warm to the touch, fill a dropper with with just enough oil to coat the ear canal.

GO ITALIAN: Garlic and olive oil aren't just for pizza--they can sooth the itch of mites as well. Crush 4 cloves of gaarlic into one cup of olive oil, let sit overnight, then discard the garlic gloves...heat the oil til warm to the touch and place several drops into pets ears..repeat as often as necessary.

STOP THE CYCLE: Ear mites can travel from pet to pet, so if one of your pets has been infected, chances are good all your pets have them...treat all animals at the same time.

BE PERSISTENT: It takes about 3 weeks for a mite to undergo the transition from egg to a major pain in your pets ears, regardless of the treatment you choose, it is important to keep treating your pet through the entire 3 week period in order to eradicate present and future generations.

FROM QUEEN SISSY: There is now a one-time treatment for ear mites. It is Acarexx.

TOMORROW: Fighting!!! Keep them suggestions coming in!!!

Scary day!
Our winds are a constant 40mph with gusts up to 60! We're under a wind warning in the area & it's really scary noisy out there!!
Dad called from school & the firefighters are putting out fires nearby due to power lines being knocked down. Hopefully the winds will subside soon because we're all very nervous kitties right now!

Our internet is going off & on a lot today too so we're just doing a quick meow then logging off in case it goes out again. BTW...mom got the day wrong on Angel Zaboo's crossing day. It's tomorrow & not today so he'll be doing some meowing from his cloud the next couple of days & then we'll probably be off-line on Thanksgiving day so the family can get to gm/gp's house on time.

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

Hi Arty
Well, I really don't enjoy it, per se. Mom makes me wear it when it gets really cold outside because our house is drafty and I don't have a very thick coat. I just have the one sweater and a t-shirt which is too small (darn!;)).
I'm sure my brother would have enjoyed your compliment about his being handsome. Mom says he was a bit hung up on his looks, MOL. Instead of fighting the other kitty in the mirror, he would just look at him as if to say "lookin' good!" and do that weird gesture with the fingers. Mom thought that was so funny. Me, I prefer windows to mirrors. You see so much more through a window. :)
I hope you have a warm night with lots of cuddles.
Love,
Sakura

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!

Hi Arty,
How are you doing today? It is another chilly one here but not as cold as it was a few days ago. Mom spent her day cleaning and that meant that the vaccuum monster was out and about. I don't know about you but I don't care for the dude. Hehehe.!!! Yesterday Mom did the grocery shopping and she was exhausted after that ordeal as we were out of a lot of things. Dad usually carried the litter down the basement steps and now that he is unable to do that, Mom had to struggle with several cases of litter. She has a bad back after her surgeries, arthritis in her knee and hip and she pulled something in her shoulder. She is a mess. MOL.!!! And, Dad didn't get the stiches out of his ankle. The Dr. said the stiches still weren't ready. Imagine that.!!! What are the stiches waiting for.???? Dad will have to wait until Tuesday for the removal of the stiches and then will have surgery on his other ankle on Wednesday. Oh my, Mom will need a rest when this is all said and done. Anymew, I hope that you are having a nice day and visit when you can. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

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

Hi Arty!
We had some big cold, but it is getting 50 now in the day. No matter how cold, there is always a red rose blooming in Baba's yard. Dedushka sent it when he went to Bridge, to remind her he loves her. It's for me, too, right? I loved my dedushka, with his wheels. Purrs - Katya

Hi Arty
Yes, I like it for those cold days and we've had plenty of 'em lately! Yikes! Although the other day I managed to slip out and had it beside me, MOL. I learned from that one.
I'm one of those kitties that will sleep through the night. At least when I stay with Mom I do. Otherwise I might get up 1 or 2 times for a snack of dry and water or a trip to the box. Hmm...now that Mom thinks of it, my brother was that way too. Mom says it's funny because if she got to moving around too much, he would go lay on the corner of the bed and let out a sigh, MOL. He was a sigher and a snorer, haha. He's the white cat in my gallery. The blue eyes are from his Siamese side.
It's supposed to be warmer this weekend but wouldn't you know it, rain's moving in. *facepaw*
Hope you have a great night.
Love,
Sakura

KELS KAT REMEDIES
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!!!

Hello Artemis
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

KELSEES KAT REMEDIES
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.

Hi Arty,
It sure is a cold start to the day. It was only 14 degrees at wake-up so, I ate my breakfast and headed to the heat duct. That is always a warm spot. Mom will be taking Dad to the Dr. today for another check-up from his ankle surgery. Hopefully they will take out the stiches and Dad can take a shower. He said those bird baths are for the birds only. Hehehe.!!! Have a great day, stay safe and keep warm. Purrs and a hug, Mittens..

Hi Arty
Oh, it has been frigid here! It got down into the single digits last night and may again tonight. I know what you mean. When I'm not on a lap under a blanket, I am by the radiator on my self-heating pad. Any port in a storm, MOL. Mom even has part of a blanket in my carrier for my trips to the vet.
Oooh...a fireplace..... sounds lovely.
