About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Pete COTM March 2011

I am an American Shorthair from Jacksonville, FL

Nicknames: Sweet Pete, Little Buddy,

Age: 9 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: I'm extremely cunning. I've learned to get along with five older girl cats. It's neat being the only guy

My favorite tricks and treats are: Ever since I was just a litle kitten ( my baby photo is in the gallery below) I've been able to steal the hearts of any humans I meet. Treats ? well, Pounce crunchy treats are very good, and I really like Kitty Kaviar, which is dried tuna sliced into thin flakes. It's really good.

Where I hang out: on Mom and Dad's bed or in the window, but my very favorite, is up on the kitchen counter helping my Dad cook.

My favorite grubs: I like Fancy Feast dry, and an evening treat of a little tuna

My pet peeves: Loud noises, like unexpected sneezes, or stuff being dropped.

What I love about my owners: "Owners" don't be silly, Mom and Dad are my family. A father doesn't "own" his son, does he? I love that they love me, and I love them.

My cat hobbies: I like to play with furry toys, And feather toys (see photo in gallery of me and my feather toy) Also, I really like to chase my older sister, Raven (A sweet, petite, all black American Shorthair)

Good afternoon kitties....do you smell them cookies mom is baking?? Today's topic: MOVING ANXIETY!!

Your new home is beautiful. You & the family are going to be so happy here. But what's this?? Do you detect a sourpuss in the crowd? Is that your cat scratching up the furniture, urinating on the rug, looking for a place to hide or perhaps plotting an escape from your lovely new home?

BE A PACK RAT: If your kitty is particularly fond of a certain piece of furniture, take it along. Don't even thin k it won't fit in with your new home. Taking it along will make Fluffy feel comfy as she settles in. Her scent is on it, she's used to it and it is comforting to her.

GIVE HER THE SHIRT OFF YOUR BACK: One way to help your pet get used to a new place is to make her sleeping area smell like you. They can be much more relaxed if they smell something or someone familiar around them.

PROVIDE A QUIET SPACE: In the midst of moving, it's hard for your pet to get settled in her new abode. Be sure never to leave her locked in for more then 20 minutes and when you go to see her bring her in lots of treats and comfort her.

BE CONSISTENT: Keep as close to your old routine as possible after your move...it is very important for your pet to see nothing has to change. Pets need patterns and predictability, especially after a move. Walk Fido at the same time each day, let your cat sleep with you if she is used to it...feed them at the same time, it will make a big difference.

FOIL ESCAPE ARTISTS: It's critical to keep a close eye on your pet to ensure they don't sneak away while you're moving in. Never put your cat outdoors right after a move, wait for at least a month so she will be used to her new home...make sure fences are all the way to the ground to prevent escaping under them. Make sure you have her ID tags updated, so she should escape and is found, your new neighbor can know where to bring her home.

PLAN AHEAD: Try to schedule your move so someone in the family can spend several days at home with your pet before you run off back to work. The worst thing you can do is leave your pet alone in a new home all alone where he might feel abandoned.

~~~CATS ONLY~~~
KEEP HER NEARBY: It is not unusual for a cat to say adios to her new home and head back to her old 'stomping grounds' after a move. To prevent this, do not allow Fluffy outside alone for about a month, and after a month, you can take her outside on a leash for the first few weeks til she is used to her new yard. NEVER leave your cat outside alone for long periods of time.

Tomorrow: SINUS PROBLEMS!

Good evening kitties. Today's topic: OBESITY!!!

Is your pooch a little pudgy? Is you cat a wee bit fat? they're not alone. about 1 in 3 dogs and cats in the USA are overweight. That means there are some 39 million chubby pets waddling around.

BEGIN WITH THE RIB TEST: To tell if your pet is overweight or merely stocky, run your hand across his side. If you can't feel his ribs, you know it's time to trim his tummy.

GO WALKING: Many cats enjoy walking on a leash and are trained...but if Fluffy is not leash-trained, you can still play vigorously with her..try playing with feather wands or laser lights, but make her jump and run. You can take Fido out for a walk 10-20 minutes about twice a day.

CUT BACK ON CALORIES: When starting your pet on a diet, reduce the amount you feed him by about one-quarter. Then after 2 weeks, see if you can feel his ribs, if he is still too plump, reduce another 1/4 off his food.

NIX THE SNACKS: However tempting it may be to slip your pet a little something between meals, remind yourself that those are just additional calories he will be better off avoiding.

DOLE OUT LOW CAL TREATS: To please your pets palate without packing on the pounds, you might try giving him high-fiber, low-fat snacks from your kitchen..try green beans, raw carrots or unbuttered popcorn.

GUARD AGAINST THEFT: Dogs and cats{especially cats} can be really sneaky when they're not getting as much food as they are accustomed to. Keep garbage out of their reach, keep an eye on the table, keep bread away from cats..dieting cats go crazy for bread.

MAKE IT LIGHT: To help your pet slim down, switch her food to one that is high in dietary fiber and low in fat.

WHEN TO SEE HER VET: Your formerly svelte pet hasn't been eating more then usual, but he has begun to resemble a pot-bellied pig. There are a number of dangerous conditions, among them diabetes or congestive heart failure that make themselves known with weight gain...that is why you should always check with your vet before starting your pet on any diet.

TOMORROW: MOVING ANXIETY!!!

Good afternoon/evening kitties! Today's topic is: BITING & NIPPING!

Kittens love nothing more than to stalk and pounce, sometimes delivering a painful bite in the process. Puppies like to bite/chew..on furniture, shoes or even you....but when puppies and kittens grow up and are still biting/nipping, here are a few tricks to keep it under control.

PROVIDE PLENTY OF TOYS: Dogs/Cats have a natural need to use their teeth. To help them put their mouths to good use, provide them with plenty of toys--and give them lots of praise when they use them.Dogs enjoy rubber or rawhide, while most cats enjoy cloth toys or a rubber mouse.

KEEP YOUR SKIN SAFE: Pets will chew what you give them, and if their "main" toy happens to be your hand, they are learning a dangerous habit. NEVER allow your pet to chew directly on you, give them toys instead.

GIVE HER A CHEWING OUT: The next time he points his teeth in your direction, look him straight in the eyes and firmly yell, "NO". Then ignore him for several minutes. Once he understands you are not happy with what he he is doing, he will try his best to please you next time.

SAY IT WITH SPRAY: The next time Fluffy or Fido tries a nip, spray him with a squirt bottle filled with water, after a few times of getting sprayed, he will get the hint.

***~~CATS ONLY!!!~~***

DON'T FIGHT BACK: It's natural to pull away when your ferocious feline sinks her teeth--in fear, fun or anger--into you. Unfortunately, that makes her instincts tell her to bite harder. So the next time she nails you, try to let your hand go limp for just a second until she relaxes--then pull your hand free and give her a firm scolding!

ood afternoon kitties. Today's topic: COUGHING!!!

Coughing is Nature's way of saying goodbye to dust, bacteria, tickly hairs and all other itchy things that sail into our throats...but in animals, coughing is UNUSUAL. While it normal for Fluffy to hack a hairball, constant coughing is something to look into.

PROTECT HIM FROM THE ELEMENTS: Like people, pets will occasionally cough in response to pollen, dust or even fumes from household cleaners. Try keeping your pet in another room when you clean and dust. Open windows if you can for him to breathe in fresh air...in warmer months you can keep him outdoors while you clean.

OUT DOWN THOSE SMOKES: You already know that smoking isn't good for you. It can be even worse for Fido and Fluffy. So do not smoke around your pets.

UP THE HUMIDITY: When air is dry, mucus in the throat & airways gets thick and sticky, signalling the body to cough. Take your pet in the bathroom when you shower and let him breathe in the moist air. Use a humidifier or a vaporizer in your home and it will help reduce the dryness in the air.

STOP IT AT THE SOURCE: If your pet is coughing more than once an hour, he can probably benefit from a cough suppressant. Use a product containing the active ingredient dextromethorphan, such as Robitussin Maximum Strength Cough Syrup. Ask your vet for the right does for your pet.NEVER give pets cough syrup containing aspirin or acetaminophen, which is dangerous to pets.

SLIP IT DOWN: If the cough syrup comes in a liquid form, tip the animals head up, pull the loose skin up from the mouth and make a funnel, then spoon in the proper amount.

TRY ANOTHER OTC: When coughing is caused by hay fever, giving an OTC like Benedryl can reduce the irritation..ask your vet for the proper amount to give your pet.

KEEP HIM TRIM: Weight is often a significant factor in older pets. Getting a few pound off of them will stop the coughing.

KEEP HER CALM: Stressful situations can trigger cough attacks. So when your pets symptoms flare up, give her extra love and attention until things are calm.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: When pets start coughing, it is sometimes a warning sign that something serious is wrong, like pneumonia, asthma, bronchitis, or even a collapsed wind-pipe.

If Fido is coughing and also breathing rapidly or seems short of breath or has a swollen abdomen, get him to the Vet immediately.

Coughing is rare in cats, with the exception of expelling hairballs, so if Fluffy is coughing, take her to the Vet asap.

TOMORROW: CONSTIPATION!!

Today's topic: HIVES!

When your pets hind legs starts whirling like a propeller and you hear that 'thump, thump, thump' on the floor, you know there's something itchy going on.

TRY AN ANTIHISTAMINE: OTC medications like Benedryl block the effects of histamine, a body chemical that causes itching. Call your vet before administering it, he will recommend the proper dosage for your pet.

SCRATCH THE OINTMENTS: While topical medications like calamine or hydrocortisone cream can help relieve itching, they are not effective on pets and the animals will usually lick it off.

HANDS OFF: Rare is the cat or dog that won't appreciate your giving him an assertive scratch. In the case of hives, however, scratching only makes the itching worse, so keep your hands to yourself and do not scratch your pet.

TEST THINGS AROUND YOUR HOME: Pets can be allergic to everyday house-hold products, like soaps, shampoo, cleaning products, etc, or even to your deodorant. If you notice your pet itching after using something, try another product..this can take time, so you will have to be patient.

TRY DIFFERENT DIETS: Some pets are allergic to ingredients in pet foods. Try different formulas until you find one he can eat without an allergic reaction. You can also get creative and make your own. Cats especially like rabbit meat and cooked rice.

Your vet may also recommend a commercially prepared food made especially for allergic pets and they come in different varieties.

TOMORROW: COUGHING!!!

Hi Pete, Talley & all!
Let Mom shoot some videos? Sure, she can shoot all the videos she wants as long as they aren't of me! I'm just being a stinker when it comes to letting Mom get my antics on camera these days. She has a plan though... You see, I'm a tape fanatic. I'm *always* into the tape, be it packing tape or regular tape. You wouldn't believe how much tape I've ruined! (Mom was about ready to throttle me this morning while she was trying to wrap presents!) Anyway, she's going to take a length of tape and tape my ears with it, then record my efforts to remove it. She thinks it'll be funny. *I* have other thoughts! We'll see who wins. MOL!! Hugs, Pique and the Zoo Crew

Good afternoon kitties. Today's topic is: BLADDER CONTROL PROBLEMS:!!

Few things are less savory than discovering an unpleasant odor emanating from your potted plants or a puddle in your living room. Oh no, she has done it again. It is normal for puppies and kittens to make mistakes. But when your grown up pet has suddenly stopped making it to litter box or back yard on time, there could be something physically wrong.

HOLD THE NIGHTCAP: To help keep floors dry while you sleep, try putting out only a small amount of water at night. Don't stop the water entirely. For some pets going without water can be dangerous.

PROVIDE EXTRA BATHROOMS: When Fluffy has poor control, the last thing she needs is a litter box that's far away. To make sure she can get relief when she needs it, have an extra litter box on every floor.

KEEP IT TIDY: Even desperate cats can be finicky, and if the litter isn't kept clean, they refuse to use it. Clean out your cats boxes with each bowel movement, or at least once a day.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: While even the best-behaved pet can have accidents, a sudden change for the worse could mean trouble. Pets that urinate frequently or in all the wrong places could have a bladder infection, diabetes, hormone imbalance or even kidney failure.

Call your vet if any changes in your pets usual habits persist for more then 2 days or if the urine is discolored or if it's difficult for her to go.

TOMORROW: HIVES!!!

Good afternoon kitties. Today's topic is: MATTED COATS!!

Is your pet having a bad hair day? Is her coat all gnarly and matted??? It's not much fun getting tangled up with matted fur. Hundreds of hairs can be involved in just one mat.

KEEP HER DRY: Once your pets matted hair gets wet, if they get wet, they will be even more difficult to remove. So keep her dry until you get the mats out.

LET FINGERS DO THE WALKING: Untangling a mat takes patience, but it can be done. Starting at the ends of the hairs and working inward--hair by hair if necessary--divide the mat in half with your fingers. Then divide it in quarters and pull til they come out. Then run a comb through the hair to make her coat smooth.

GIVE MATS THE BRUSH OFF: Your pets brush can be a great mat-fighter. Beginning near the tips of the hair and using short rapid strokes, gently brush upward. As the hair gets smooth, gradually work your way down toward the skin.

COAX THEM OUT WITH CORNSTARCH: A light sprinkling of cornstarch makes stubborn mats easier to pull apart.It helps the hair glide right out of the mat. As you work, add more cornstarch as needed.

SLIDE THEM OUT WITH SPRAY: Pet stores sell sparys made specifically for detangling mats. They typically contain lanolin, which helps hairs glide out of the mat. Make sure to get "Feline Friendly" if used for cats.

TAKE IT IN STAGES: If your pet has more than one mat or one large mat that's particularly tough, it's a good idea to do the job in stages. Work on them 10 minutes at a time, then give your pet extra love and maybe a special treat.

GET THEE TO A GROOMER: Professional groomers have special tools to help untangle tough mats. It's important to remember that even groomers sometimes give up and take a shortcut.

BRUSH HIM UP: Once your pet is mat-free, giving him a daily brushing will help keep his coat smooth. Since every pets coats are different, ask your local pet store for the best brush to use on your pet.

GET HER IN CONDITION: Using a conditioner will help keep your pets coat smooth and healthy. Apply the conditioner once a week. Follow label instructions and for cats, make sure it is "Feline Friendly".

TAKE A SHORT CUT: One fool-proof way to prevent matting is to keep your pets coat short. It's much better in the long run to prevent mats and having to get rid of them.

Good afternoon kitties. Mom is tired today, no sleep last night, worked all day today, so hopefully we will spell properly here: {MOL} Today's topic: WOUNDS!

In your view, she may be mans best friend, and he may be a purrfect pet. Unfortunately, the other critters in your neighborhood may not hold your four-legged friend in the same high regard! So when nasty things happen to your companion, like wounds, abscesses and bleeding, here are some tips:

TAKE PRECAUTIONS: Experts recommend muzzling your furry friend before treating injuries. If you happen to touch the sore area, he may lash out and bite. If you have no muzzle, try rolling gauze around her mouth and under her chin and tie it behind her ears.

TRY WRAPPING HER UP: If your pet is too small to muzzle, try wrapping her up in a towel, pillowcase or blanket before beginning treatment. To avoid making it difficult for her to breathe, don't wrap her too tight or for too long.

FIRST AID COMES FIRST: Stop the bleeding is number 1. As soon as possible, apply firm pressure to the wound with your hand or a clean piece of cloth....maintain the pressure until the bleeding stops. If the bleeding doesn't stop within 10 minutes, take your pet to the Vet right away.

MAKE THE FUR FLY: Once bleeding is under control, the next step is to clean the wound thoroughly. Start by trimming away any fur around the wound. TRY using an electric clippers if you have one, they are best for removing the fur without accidentally gouging the animal.

PASTE ON PROTECTION: To prevent fresh clipped hairs from falling into the wound, coat it with water soluble K-Y jelly. The hairs with stick to the jelly and can easily be washed away.

DO SOME DEEP CLEANING: Flush deep cuts or punctures with warm water to expel germ-covered hair or debris that might contaminate the wound. Soap and water are best, you may also apply a thin coat of triple antibiotic ointment.

BUBBLES MEAN TROUBLE: Never use an antiseptic such as Hydrogen Peroxide or rubbing alcohol because they further irritate the injured tissue.

LET 'EM LICK: When dogs & cats get injured, their tongues automatically go to work. Do not interfere with nature. plan. Licking does no harm and it may actually help heal the wound.

WATCH OUT FOR ABSCESSES: While most minor wounds will heal on their own, occasionally an abscess will form. An abscess is a pocket of pus beneath the skin in indicates infection. See your vet if you see an abscess on your pet...The Vet will probably need to drain the abscess and give your furry friend an oral antibiotic.

TOMORROW: MATTED COATS!!!

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

You had a great time hiking through the fields & forests, but now it's time to pay the price. It seems your companion has bought back a coat loaded with burrs. This is a real thorny problem and here are a few tips to help remove them with ease.

TAKE THE DRY ROAD: Once burrs get snarled into your pets coat, be sure to remove them before he gets wet. The tangled hair around the burr will shrink like wool after it gets wet and you'll have an extra hard time getting the burrs out.

PUT YOUR FINGERS TO WORK: It's really important to remove burrs as soon as you can so they don't dig in and create mats and irritation. If the burr has just recently lodged, you might be able to remove it with just your fingers or a pair of tweezers.. If it's been there longer, it may be tangled inside a hair mat. To Undo the mat, pull it apart with your fingers little by little, working from the end of the hairs down towards the root. After you remove the burrs, run a comb or brush his coat to smooth things out.

LOOSEN 'EM WITH LUBE: When a burr is really tangled, applying a little vegetable oil will help get it loose. You can also use a detangling spray available at your local pet store, make sure it is feline friendly if used on cats.

TRY THE KINDEST CUT: If you're having problems getting the burr out, especially on long-haired pets, try cutting them out. Use blunt-tipped scissors to avoid accidentally gouging your pet. Cut perpendicular to the mat, not parallel to it. Only cut the hair and not your pets skin.

TAKE YOUR TIME: Removing burrs can be very time-consuming & sometimes painful. Take frequent breaks when you're dealing with a dog or cat with many burrs. Remove them at 10 minute intervals, then praise your pet and give her a treat as a reward for being good and patient.

KEEP IT SHORT: Keeping your pets coat neatly trimmed won't prevent burrs from sticking, but it will make them easier to remove.

PASS UP PRICKLY PLACES: In the future, the one sure way to avoid burrs is to stay away from infested areas. If you know which field they are in, take another route.

TOMORROW: WOUNDS!!!

Good evening kitties. I trust you all had a good time yesterday at the skating party, so nice to see so many there. Today's topic is: DENTAL PROBLEMS.

Your cat doesn't have to flash his pearly whites for family portraits. Your pooch doesn't do smoochy love scenes for romantic movies...so why worry about their teeth? If you do not tend to pets teeth they may go away or worse You should care every bit as much for your pets teeth as you do your own.

USE MAINLY DRY FOOD: Feeding your pet dry kibble rather than canned food can help reduce plaque on teeth cause it is abrasive.

BONE UP ON BISCUITS: if you're going to give your pet a treat, a good choice for her teeth is a crunchy pet biscuit. The abrasive action of the biscuits will help keep her teeth well-scrubbed and clean.

BEWARE OF BONES: Your pet may adore gnawing on big bones from your favorite cut of meat, but they be tough on his teeth. If you don't want your pets teeth to fracture, avoid really hard bones and of course always avoid bones that spl,inter, like chicken bones.

REACH FOR THE RUBBER: Giving your pet a hard rubber toy with grooves is a great way to help keep his teeth white & Clean. Pet stores carry a wide variety of rubber toys for both cats and dogs.

LAUNCH A PLAQUE ATTACK:The idea of brushing your pets teeth daily can be a bit daunting at first, but it is the best thing you can do to keep her teeth healthy.

START EASY: Rather then lunging at your pet with a toothbrush in hand, get him used to the idea. Try rubbing his mouth daily, open it to check his teeth, and rub his chin and tell him he is a good boy {or a good girl}..do this daily for about a week.

PUT ON THE GAUZE: It is easier to start with gauze...life your pets lip on one side and with a little gauze wrapped around your finger, rub the outer surfaces of his teeth..do this daily for about a week.

GRADUATE TO TOOTHBRUSH: Use a soft child sized toothbrush or one specially designed for pets, you can also buy brushes that will fit over your index finger.

USE PASTE WITH TASTE: These days many pet toothpastes come in a variety of tasty flavors. NEVER use toothpaste made for humans as they contain detergents.

ALTERNATIVES TO TOOTHPASTE: If your pet is repelled by the toothpaste, here are some tasty alternatives. Try beef or chicken flavored bouillon, make a broth, let it cool and use that..it will help some if your pet doesn't care for toothpaste.

DO SOMETHING FISHY: Another alternative to toothpaste especially with cats is to moisten the toothbrush with water from a can of tuna..although he will not have fresh minty breath.

WHEN TO SEE A VET: If you notice a terrible odor in your pets mouth or you see redness around the gums or broken, rotting teeth, call your vet immediately.

TOMORROW: Them Prickly BURRS!

Good afternoon Kitties. I hope you all had a peaceful night! Today's topic is: VOMITING!

Sure, it's a dog-eat-dog world out there. But it's also a dog-eat-garbage & cat-eats-dead-mouse world. While dogs and cats usually vomit because of dumpster-diving, eating too much or eating to fast can upset their tummies.

GIVE HIM FAST RELIEF: When your pet is vomiting, his stomach needs a time-out. Don't give him food for 24-hours. A short fast may be all it takes to get his tummy back to normal...if he is still vomiting after 24 hours, call your vet.

FILL THE WATER BOWL: Once the worse is over, encourage your pet to drink water during his fast. The last thing you want is a dehydrated pet.

LET HER LICK ICE: If water makes them queasy, give him an ice cube. He will lick it slowly and it usually stays down. Put the ice cube in your pets bowl or on the floor, make sure the water stays down, then you can give him a cube every 15 minutes.

KEEP THE LID DOWN: To prevent your pet from drinking too much, keep your toilet lid down, especially if you use chemical fresheners, or your pet could walk away with a tummy full of bacteria.

MAKER HER MENU BLAND: After fasting for 24 hours, your pet may be ravenous for food. Start with a bland diet to gently work his system back into digesting. You can mix 2 parts of cooked white rice with one part cottage cheese or boiled skinless breast. Feed him small amounts every 4 hours, after a few days, if he holds it down, you can go back to his normal diet.

BRING IT BACK SLOWLY: After 2 days on the bland diet, you can start re-introducing his usual fare. Mix 1 part of the bland with his regular meal everyday for 4 days until he is back to normal.

CALM IT WITH KAOPECTATE: Even after the vomiting stops, your pet may not be feeling up to par. Kaopectate will soothe her tummy. Ask your vet for the recommended dosage for you pet.

DOGS ONLY: GET IN THE PINK: Giving your dog Pepto-Bismol will help soothe his tummy just as it does yours. Give 1 teaspoon for every 20 pounds of dogs weight.
NEVER GIVE Pepto-Bismol to cats. It contains ingredients cats don't metabolize well, so it can make them sicker.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: If your pet is lethargic, disoriented & stumbling around like he's drunk, and throwing up a lot more then usual, call your vet immediately...your pet may have consumed a poisonous plant or gotten into some anti-freeze.

TOMORROW: DENTAL PROBLEMS!

Good afternoon kitties! Hope you all had a pawsome weekend! Today's topic is: ALLERGIES!

Dogs & cats with allergies...you bet!!! Like their owners, many pets are sensitive to airborne annoyances--not just pollen or mold but also such things as dust, feathers and wool. Unlike humans, animals do not suffer from fever, red runny eyes and noses to sneezing attacks, but they do get all itchy.

CALM IT WITH COOL WATER: Giving your pet a cool-water soak{NO WAY!!} is a quick way to ease itchy skin.Bathe your pet for 5-10 minutes..make sure the water is cool, not cold or too warm, warm water aggravates the itch.

EASE IT WITH OATMEAL: To make soaks additionally soothing, vets sometimes recommend adding colloidal oatmeal{like Aveeno} to the bath water, it will help calm the crankiest itch!

ALLEVIATE WITH ANTIHISTAMINES: You can often bring allergies under control with antihistamines. Your vet may recommend an OTC drug like diphenhydramine {Benedryl} Your vet will tell you how much to give your pet.

SUBDUE IT WITH SUPPLEMENTS: To help calm itchy skin, try giving your pet fatty acid supplements which are used for relieving mange and other skin disorders. Your vet can recommend what type to give your pet.

KEEP HER INDOORS: In the Spring/Summer, Pollen is in the air--and in your furry friends coat and airways as well. To prevent pollen from pushing your pet around, keep her indoors as much as possible during pollen peak hours....early morning and evenings.

SMOOTH THE ROUGH EDGES: Carpet, heavy drapes and upholstery are variable magnets for dust & pollen. Try keeping your pets area free of drapes and carpet, you can use vinyl blinds over the windows.

CLEAN OFTEN: Daily cleaning will not eliminate dust and pollen, but it will keep it manageable. It is also a good idea to clean your pets bedding once a week. It is also a good idea to change your furnace/AC filters monthly.

LOOK TO THE LITTER: Many litter's contain chemical scents to make your cats bathroom smelling pretty...for you--not her. Try buying scentless and dust free litter.

FOR THOSE WITH DOGS: Dogs with allergies occasionally suffer from itchy feet and soaking them in Epsom salts can bring much relief. Fill the tub with just enough water to cover paws. Dissolve several cups of Epsom salts crystals in the water...stand your dog in the tub for 5-10 minutes, then gently dry her feet.

TOMORROW: When Fido or Fluffy BITE their humans!

Dad called mom on her cell as the neighbor guy wasn't home so mom had to leave her cart full of stuff head home to get dad and drop him off ay the dentist then she went back to PetSmart.

♥ Mom had to call the Auto Club Friday to have them send someone to our house to jump start dad’s truck so he and mom could take it to get new battery installed then they had to stop at the Feed store to buy neighbor Sara feed for her goats, chickens, ducks and rabbit. Sara had been terribly sick with the flu most all week. Then mom and dad took the feed to Sara's plus dad also fed her animals.

♥ Mom has been letting Patch Boy come in the house from the back room. He is pretty much staying in most all day xcept when mom & dad are gone plus he still stays in the back room at bed time. Mom says she's so proud of me for being so good with him in!!!!

♥ We all got our pawdicures, Revolution Flea treatment then the best for last was our treats today!!!!

Good afternoon kitties!! Today's topic is: SHEDDING!!!

Whether you have a short-haired calico{like me} or a long haired collie{like Lassie}, the coming of Summer means there are more then just pollen in the air. Your pet can drop 1000's of hairs a day when she's shedding her winter coat.

GIVE HIM THE BRUSH OFF: If you're going to do one thing when your pet is shedding, you should brush brush and more brush...not all brushes are the same..you will need one that's suited for your pet..something that works for a long haired coat will not work well on a short haired coat.

GO DEEP: For brushing to be effective, you need to use firm, deep strokes. Short strokes are better then long ones cause they penetrate the coat more thoroughly.

RUB HER THE WRONG WAY: After brushing your pet from head to tail, reverse direction and go against the fur. This will help loosen hair you may have missed the first time.

DON'T GIVE HER ANY STATIC: Brushing against the fur will occasionally be a shocking experience for you and your pet. Her coat can build up a static charge and you can spark her. To prevent this, use a static-free brush.

SWITCH TO A COMB: After giving your pet a thorough brushing, you can pick up loads of additional hair by switching to a comb.

CONDITION HIS COAT: Occasionally applying a small bit of conditioner will make her coat smoother and easier to brush {especially for long haired pets}.

FOR CATS ONLY:
PUT ON PROTECTION: While some cats love to be brushed, others hate it, and will try to claw you, so putting on a pair of gloves will help save your hands and arms from scratches.

GET A GRIP: Holding Fluffy firmly by the scruff of the neck will help control her wilder instincts during grooming.

TOMORROW: ALLERGIES!!!

Good evening kitties. Today is moms birthday so she got a cake from her co-workers. Happy birthday to my mom.

Today's Topic: BITES!!!!

They don't call it a dog-eat-dog world for nothing. Big dogs bite little dogs and vice versa. Dogs chase cats, and cats fight back. Even squirrels, skunks and other critters will occasionally throw their hats into the ring. Any bite is potentially dangerous, so if your pet gets bitten, see your Vet ASAP!!!!

START WITH A MUZZLE: It's natural for an animal in pain to lash out. To protect yourself, wrap your pets mouth before treating him. If you have no muzzle you can improvise by wrapping gauze, panty hose or even a length of twine or rope several times around your pets mouth. Then pull the ends together and tie behind their ears.

WRAP HER UP: If FLUFFY OR FIDO are too small for a muzzle, protect yourself by wrapping her head with a towel before starting treatment.

GET IT CLEAN: Trim the hair around the wound to make it easier to clean. Flush for at least 5 minutes with warm water. If the bite is ore than 24 hours old, bacteria may have already taken hold. Scrub the wound carefully with an antibacterial soap, then flush it with warm water.

ADD EXTRA PROTECTION: After washing & drying the bite, apply an OTC triple antibiotic ointment such as Neosporin. Then bandage the area with gauze to keep it clean...to keep gauze in place you can use clear first-aid tape.

KEEP IT LOOSE:When applying and taping a bandage to a wound, leave enough room to get your finger underneath. Anything tighter can interfere with your pets circulation.

ENCOURAGE HER INPUT: Once the bandage is removed, it's natural for a pet to lick their wounds. In most cases this isn't a problem. In fact, licking helps speed the healing process.

KEEP UP WITH SHOTS: Rabies is a viral disease that without treatment is almost always fatal--to both pets and people. Keep your pets vaccinations up to date.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: Look for these danger signs.
If touching the area around the wound causes Fido or Fluffy to jerk away, the wound could be infected. Severe blood loss. Bites to the abdomen or to the throat, injuries in these areas can cause damage to the windpipe or internal bleeding. If a wild animal bites your pet, it could be rabid so get your pet to the vet right away.

Tomorrow: SHEDDING.

Hi K. Pete! It's Your Brother Whiskers!
I just wanted to paw by and thank you for the beautiful words you left on CMR on behalf of dear King Thomas. I never really got to know him, but I feel as if I do from all that your family has spoken of him and so many others. King Thomas is indeed a very noble cat. The love and devotion his Mother gives to him is incredible. She is truly an Angel on earth. We are all praying for him and his precious family.

I just wanted to share a poem with you I thought you and your dear Dad would like. Sending you soft purrs and warm hugs, my dear brother.

Baggage (The Meaning of Rescue) =^.^=
~~~~~
Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed,
All nicely tucked in my warm new bed,
I'd like to open my baggage,
Lest I forget,
There is so much to carry,
So much to regret.

Hmmm...Yes, there it is, right on the top,
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss,
And there by my perch hides Fear and Shame.
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave,
I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.
I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me.

Will you add to my baggage?
Will you help me unpack?
Or will you just look at my things,
And take me right back?
Do you have the time to help me unpack?
To put away my baggage, to never repack?
I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,
But I do come with baggage,
Will you still want me?

By Evelyn Colbath

Good afternoon kitties, today's topic is all about the JEALOUSY we all feel in multi-pet households!

Life with your pet used to be rosy. But these days the emotional hue is more jealousy. either a new human mate, a new baby or even another pet has entered your life. While pets don't jealousy the same as people do, that's not to say your little darlings don't feel a tad jealous.

DON'T DEMOTE HIM: No one enjoys being the bottom dog{or cat}, so try to make your pet feel special and loved before the source of the stress came into your life.

FEED HER FIRST: If a new pet is causing your pet to see 'green', be sure to give the 'original' pet top priority. No matter how irresistible a new pet may be, alwys feed your 1st pet first. Do the same when giving attention.

TREAD GENTLY: You might think that the new person in your life is making your furry friend jealous, but in fact he could be feeling fear. Have your new friend speak gently to your pet. With cats, be patient and him make the 1st move. The person should never approach the cat 1st and insist on being friends, that will never work.

FOR CATS ONLY!!!
PUT HER ON A PEDESTAL: It's important to realize cats feel more secure when they have a high vantage point. So make sure your cat has a place to climb to where she can sit and watch what is going on. If you can't add shelving to your walls buy cat trees which are readily available at most retailers and pet stores, or if you really feel creative, make your own, but be sure to carpet it and use some sisal rope as well.

MAKE INTRODUCTIONS SLOWLY: If you just got a new pet, don't don't give him the run of the house immediately. This will make your first cat go nuts. Keep the cats in separate areas for a day or two. Then trade off their areas so they get used to each other's scent. If the cats seem alright after 2 days, let them 'meet' face to face. However if they start growling and hissing, keep them separated for another few days..keep this up til the hissing stops...soon they will learn to live together in harmony.

FIGHTS: If 2 cats go at it in a fight, NEVER try to put your hand in the middle to break it up, you may be bitten or scratched. One sure way to get them separated is to keep a squirt bottle on hand, most cats hate to be squirted and will separate and run.

TOMORROW: ASTHMA

♥ I have been getting my mom time every morning like clockwork. Tehehehe!!!!

♥ There is this male (Ruby throat) Hummingbird hanging around since early Monday morning. Mom has been worried about him cuz he would drink from the feeder then perch in the Curly Willow tree in our front yard. Well, that would have been fine with mom, but it was drizzly and on about 35 degrees. Mom put in a call to The Audubon and the guy called back last night. Mom felt better after their talk. There's 2 types which this one lives here year round and the other kind comes only during migrations. He also told mom we were lucky to have him here cuz they don't hang out just anywhere!!!! Mom took pictures which she added 3 to my gallery.

♥ Dad thought he had the kitchen door closed that goes to the back room (where Patch Boy stays) today & when he got back from walking Wilbur, the door was opened with Whyskrs #10378 out there & Patch Boy was scared; according to dad!!!!

♥ Mom was finally able to pick up Patch Girl's antibiotics today so mom gave her one already.

Good evening kitties..today's topic is: FEVER!!!

You always knew your pet was 'hot-stuff', but today he really does seem to be over heating. Worse, he's moping around and doesn't even want to eat. What's turning up the heat??

It could be a virus...take your pets' temperature...the NORMAL body temp for dogs and cats is between 100.5* - 102.5*, if the thermometer registers over over 103* you can bet they are getting sick.

PRESS AWAY THE HEAT: One soothing way to lower your pets temperature is with cool water compresses. Soak a washcloth in cold water and wring it out and gently pat your pets belly. You can also use isopropyl alcohol...alcohol evaporates quickly from the skin.

RUN A COOL BATH: {I say run for the hills and hide} If your cat will hold still for it, putting her in a cool {NOT cold} bath for 10 minutes will help bring down the fever.

GIVE HIM A WRAP AROUND: To lower fever in a cat or a small dog, just place a towel soaked in cool water around him. Most will enjoy the coolness.

KEEP THE WATER BOWL FULL: A pet with a fever runs the risk of dehydration, so it's important to keep his water bowl full of fresh cold water at all times. If he doesn't want to drink, give him an ice cube instead.

ASK ABOUT ASPIRIN: While many vets are cautious when it comes to giving human medication to pets, aspirin can sometimes be used to help bring a fever down. Ask your vet before giving any aspirin to your pet and he will recommend the correct dosage.

DOES THE NOSE KNOW: just as we check a childs temp by feeling his forehead, we check our pets noses when they are feeling ill. While dogs and cats appreciate the attention, the nose is not an accurate gauge of temperature .

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: While most fevers are caused by minor viral infections, they can also be a sign of something more serious, such as hepatitis, pneumonia or Lyme Disease.

TO CHECK PETS TEMP: Lightly coat a rectal thermometer with petroleum jelly, holding the thermometer in one hand, your pets in the other, gently slide the thermometer two-thirds of it's length into the rectum. If the temp is over 103*, call your vet immediately.

TOMORROW: HEARTWORMS!

Good afternoon Kitties! Today's topic is: DEHYDRATION!!!

You wouldn't know it to look at her, but your pet is a veritable ocean of water. She needs all that fluid to keep her tissues moist and to transport ions, proteins and essential nutirents throughout her body.

Symptoms of dehydration include: dry mouth, sunken eyes, loss of elasticity in the skin and extreme exhaustion.

MOISTEN HER MUZZLE: While dogs and cats do not sweat much--they have only a few sweat glands between their toes--they can lose a lot of fluid through panting. To make sure your pet always has enough to drink, it's a good idea to keep 2 water bowls filled all the time, that way she will always have plenty to drink.

DON'T LET HIM GUZZLE: If your pet has gone a long time without water, letting him gulp down the entire bowl of water at once may result in vomiting.

ELECTROLYTE UP HER LIFE: Dehydration can cause your pet to lose electrolytes, minerals like potassium and sodium that transmit electrical impulses throughout the body. Try giving your pet Pedialyte, you can find it in most stores.

POUR A SPORTS DRINK: If your hot dog or cat seems reluctant to drink, try tempting him with an electrolyte-containing sports drink such as Gatorade. Some pets have a thing for sweet, fruity flavors.

LET HER LICK ICE: Pets that have gone a long time without water may have trouble keeping fluids down. A helpful alternative is to give her and ice cube.

GET WATER TO GO: To prevent dehydration from occurring, it's important to provide your pet with water even when you're away from the house. When and if you travel with your pets try keeping a no-spill water container in the car. Pet stores sell a variety of no-spill containers.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: To test for dehydration, pull up the skin on your pets back, if it pulls up loose and lax, he could be dangerously low on fluids and should be seen by his VET right away!

Tomorrow: FEVER!

Good evening kitties: Today's topic is "The Treed Kitty"..never been up a tree, pursonnaly, but Jesse has!

Rather he's chasing birds, escaping from dogs, or simply catching a high-altitude snooze, one of the cats favorite activities is climbing trees.

DON'T RALLY 'ROUND THE TREE: Just because your cat is out on a limb doesn't mean he needs your help. In fact, he'd probably prefer it if you'd go away and leave him alone.

GIVE HER TIME: While it's not impossible for a cat to be truly stuck in a tree, chances are he just hasn't gotten around to coming down yet. Most cats are fully capable of coming down by themselves....if kitty doesn't come down by dark, you may need to go get her as she may be attacked wild animals like a raccoon.

TEMPT HIS TASTE BUDS: Even cats in trees get hungry, and putting some of his favorite food where he can see and smell it may get him down.

MOUNT A RESCUE MISSION: If your cat is tyoo scared to come down on his own, the easiest thing to do is climb the tree and get him. If the tree is not easy to climb, get a ladder.

DON PROTECTION: A treed cat is a scared cat, and many people have been bitten and scratched trying to rescue a scared cat. Wear heavy gloves and a jacket to protect your hands and arms.

GO FOR THE NECK: When grabbing a scared cat, it's best to catch the skin on the back of her neck, This is the same place mom-kitty uses when she carries kittens...most cats will go limp once grabbed by the scruff of the neck.

MAKE IT COUNT: When grabbing a treed cat, make sure you don't miss. If you miss and don't get a good grasp, chances are he will climb higher.

CALL THE PROS: If kitty has been in the tree fort more then 24 hours and still doesn't come down and your efforts failed, it's time to call the pros....call your local Humane Society or Animal Rescue.

BUILD A STAIRCASE: If your cat frequently get 'stuck' in the same tree, you can make life easier for both of you by nailing up a few boards, this will give your climbing feline something to grab when climbing or descending.

KEEP HIM AWAY: If kitty only seems to have trouble getting down from one tree, you can try to barricade the tree, try surrounding the tree with wire mesh, just make sure it's high enough so kitty can't jump over it.

TOMORROW: DEHYDRATION

Good evening Kitties!! Today's topic is: RINGWORM!!

Just because your pet is getting bald, doesn't mean he is getting older. His coat is looking a lot like an 18-hole golf course, this is caused by a fungal infection called Ringworm!

TAKE A LITTLE OFF THE TOP: Trimming her fur around the bald spots will help prevent the fungus from spreading and also make the area easier to treat.

HAUL AWAY THE HAIR: Since Ringworm thrives on hair both on and off the pet, be sure to clean up well after giving your pet a haircut.

WASH IT WELL: To keep the "RINGS" clean and infection-free, wash them daily with an OTC antiseptic soap containing povidone iodine. This will help prevent minor fungal problems from turning into a more serious infection.

SPREAD ON PROTECTION: There re a number of OTC anti-fungal creams, liquids and ointments that are very good at controlling ringworm. For treatment to be effective, rub a small amount of the medication into the skin twice a day. Ask your vet which medication will work best for your pet.

PRACTICE PREVENTION: To eliminate ringworm and prevent it from spreading, wash your pets with anti-fungal shampoo. This not only kills any fungus that's already present, it will also prevent further infection. Get pet wet with warm water, pour on shampoo, work up a lather and leave on 15 minutes to give it time to work, then rinse pet well with warm water.

KEEP HER BRUSHED: To prevent ringworm from spreading, regular grooming is very important.Brushing your pet at least once a day will help remove fungal spores before they cause infection.

PROTECT HIS PALS: Since ringworm is readily spread from pet to pet, it's a good idea to keep the infected pet away from his buddies until the "RINGS" clear up.

VACUUM OFTEN: Since ringworm survives even on hair that's not on your pet, vacuuming your home often will reduce the risk of re-infection.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: Many pets with ringworm experience nothing worse than a bald spot or 2, sometimes the infection can spread over the entire body causing large, red weepy sores..if this happens..SEE YOUR VET RIGHT AWAY. he will recommend a course of treatment for your pet.

Tomorrow:" THE TREED KITTY.

Good afternoon Kitties. I trust you all had a pawsome Thanksgiving! Today's topic is: MANGE!!

It sounds like a disease associated with junkyard dogs, but even pampered pets can get mange, and it doesn't make for a pretty pet. Mange causes small red hairless areas on pets body that causes oozing!! Mange occurs when mite burrow under the skin, so here are a few tips to help your pet!

DOUSE IT WITH A DIP: Pets with scabies often get intensely itchy. It's like having mosquito bites on top of mosquito bites. Soaking your pet in a lime/sulfer medication, such as Lymdyp, diluted with water will kill the mites and help relieve itching. This dip is available at: Kennel Vet, PO Box 835, Belmore, NY 11710. Dip your pet for 10-15 minutes..do not rinse and do not towel dry. The dip must stay on your pets fur in order to work.

DON'T NEGLECT OTHER PETS: If you have more then one pet with scabies, chances are good your other pets may get it, too. You have to assume they've been exposed so you should treat them.

DO THE LAUNDRY: While mites spend their entire lives on the host animal, some might slip off and return to cause trouble another day. Be sure to wash your pets bedding or any area in which she sleeps.

FIGHT IT WITH FAR: Fatty acid supplements are fairly popular to use on skin disorders. Supplements are available at Pet stores nationwide.

KEEP HIM CLEAN: Regular grooming will help remove scaly skin and scabs caused by mange. Done regularly, it can also keep your pet mange-free.

FEED HER WELL: Since mange often affects pets that are poorly nourished, giving your pet a quality food can help provide protection, a better diet mean a healthier pet.

FORGO MOTOR OIL: Pouring motor oil on your pet is a passed-down home remedy for mange and it does NOT work. In fact, since pets will lick the oil, it can be harmful. So leve the motor oil in garage.

WHEN TO SEE HER VET: If your pet sudden;y starts going bald because of mange, it means he has a serious problem. When you notice those red, balding area's on your pet, take him to the vet for treatment.

Keep them suggestions coming in, tomorrow: RINGWORM!!!

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!
