About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is Peppermint

I am a Russian Blue from McKinney, TX

Nicknames: Pepper,
Kitten,
Kittan

Age: 13 years old

Gender: F

Coat: short haired

Education: I used to try to catch the ceiling fan chain and turn the light on or off.

She 'catches' one of her catnip toys and 'calls' me (by meowing weirdly) so that I will come and see it.

My favorite tricks and treats are: Open doors sometimes. and Bacon, and these cat treats that come in a blue bag called 'Temptations.'

Where I hang out: The dog's bed.
Also, alongside the dresser in the master bedroom.

My favorite grubs: Tuna, Salmon, Chicken, Roast Turkey, Bacon.

My pet peeves: I don't like being held for a length of time. I don't like Slinky (our big male tabby) doing his 'alpha cat' thing.

What I love about my owners: She feeds me, pets me, comes to see the 'mice' I caught, and plays with me. She also doesn't let Slinky pick on me.

My cat hobbies: Play with catnip pillow. Sit on my owner when she's watching TV. I also like to play with Snuffy, one of our black and white cats.Of course watching birds and butterflies is nice too.

Pet motto: If it's small and it moves, CATCH IT!

How We Met

We were looking for a kitten. We had just lost a beloved 18-year-old Calico cat. There weren't very many kittens in January. We had just called a pet store to see if anyone had brought any kittens in (they do a rescue thing) and they said they didn't. A few minutes later they used *69 to call us back and they told us they just got in a litter of kittens that had been left at a construction site. We looked at a couple of male Russian blues, but they were afraid and skittish. Then the pet store lady brought Peppermint out and Pepper took one look at the toys on display and it was like a little kid on Christmas morning. She began to play with the toys, even getting inside of one. This was the kitten that my daughter wanted to get, so we adopted her.

♥ Ok, here's the Deal or No Deal!!!! Mom and dad heard on our Local News the other night about outside kitties getting sick and dying due to the Feline Distemper about five or so miles from us so mom made appointments for our outside kitties ASAP!!!!

♥ UPDATE: 1/29
Mom was able to get my littermate SISSEE #11531 in to see Dr. Lisa this morning to get her Distemper vaccine. She was NOT a happy girl going there, being there and coming home as she meowed all the time --- LOUDLY!!!! Tehehehe!!!!

♥ TC also went in this morning to see Dr. Lisa for his spinal adjustment. Mom also had them give him a Distemper vaccine as well afterwards. Dr. Lisa says TC is such a GOOD boy as he NEVER meows in complaints and just enjoys his treatments as he lays on the warm SnuggleSafe. TC is finally feeling a bit better as his pain has lessened some between taking the Curcumin powder, the Traumeel (1 pill 2X day), the Dasuquin (1 capsule 2X day) and the Chiropractic. He also loves his electric sleeping pad. He goes back next Thursday for another adjustment.

♥ Mom will be capturing MYSTEANAH-GRE' late this afternoon as mom also made an appointment for her to get her Distemper vaccine since no one has claimed her. She's considered to be a part of our family.

♥ On Saturday (1/31) mom has to TRY to capture NEUBEE #123633 first, then she will get PATCH GIRL #12767 and SUEZEE #11528 as she will be taking ALL three in the same time to get their Distemper vaccines. NeuBee will have to be transferred into a squeeze-crate at the vets since she WILL NOT let any human touch her other than mom. A few years back NeuBee had bitten mom's hand sinking all four canines into it!!!! Dr. Nancy gets to do these 3 girls!!!!

♥ We will try to visit as many as possible today, but doubt if we can get to all.

Hey Peppermint!
Good morning! Weeeee 29* is very cold for you! Wish we could say that here! MOL. Brrrrr 7*! Mighty cold out there! Praying for all the strays and ferals out in the cold. Hope they can all find shelter and food & water. Guess they are talking about more snow tonight. Mom is pretty much done listening to the forecasts after the last 6-14" prediction that was 2 1/2". They just like to get everyone all worked up over the possibility of alot of snow! Terrible! Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Hey Peppermint!
Good morning! Sorry Sis was involved in a fender bender in bad weather! Very upsetting. Occasionally our area ends up losing a holiday day at Easter or going to school an extra day in the summer. They don't always allow enough days. The schools only have to last til 11 AM and they can close & still get credit for the day! Must be nice! Mom wishes her job did that. Right! 51 days til spring.

Well once again the weathermen were wrong. That 6-14" they predicted for us turned into 2 1/2". Not even close. So Mom took the day off work for nothing! A wasted vacation day. Glad it wasn't more but really screws things up. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Hey Peppermint!
Glad you enjoyed your adoptiversary! Today it was hovering around 20* here. Mom is hearing that we have a 6-14" prediction of snow here! Geez the stupid weather channel was only predicting 1-3"! A bit of a difference. Just caught the news on TV. Looks like the worst of it will fall between 8 PM tonight & 8 AM tomorrow. Mom has decided like most of her co-workers to use a vacation day & stay home tomorrow. Not worth risking any problems. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Good morning! Yes Mom does get Cat Fancy & saw the cover. She is several months behind reading CF but is catching up! MOL. I think she is on April 2014. Well you know 15 publishing that owns CC did buy Catster several months ago. They said they would keep both. Of course we have all has troubles with both as they work on each site. Lots were worried they would just combine them. Hope not. We are on both. That's all I know. Mom will have to check that magazine. This is the NHL All Stars weekend so Mom is very excited to follow the game & skills competition. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Good morning! Glad you got rain you needed. Nice that Mom gets a volunteer to help her every so often. That is very helpful I'm sure. We only got about an inch of snow last night! The roads are pretty clear and not icy. Mom was thrilled driving to work that it wasn't dangerous. Now we have to worry about Saturday but Mom can stay off the roads then and Tuesday or Wednesday we are due more snow. Can't wait til spring! 57 days! Leaving a vote. Peace & love.

Hi Peppermint, Snuffy and Sprinkles
Thanks so much! I wouldn’t have gotten this great honor if it weren’t for my Angel brother Pepper and the anniversary of his crossing Monday. I owe this badge to him! So, we BOTH thank you lots!

Thank you too, for the Tuna and Temptations treats and the catnip bubbles!

Have a super happy day. Purrs and hugs, Spanky

Good morning! No one is safe from dealing with thoughtless selfish people. Mom is especially bothered by the drivers who cut you off and all the jerks on their phones when driving. They should concentrate on their driving not the stupid phone call. Nothing new here. We are snuggled in our warm beds napping the day away while poor Mom is dealing with the grind at work! MOL. It's a dirty job but someone has to do it! She has gotta bring home the bacon & our Fancy Feast! Has to keep us in the manner we are accustomed to. You know, she has to spoil us! MOL. We are very lucky kitties! Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Dean

Good morning! Sounds cool working with animals. Your Mom is lucky. But I bet she still has to deal with people at the museum. You just can't get away from them! MOL. Warming up! It was 34* at 7 AM when Mom was driving to work! Woo Hoo! The apt was pretty warm this morning too! Staying in the 30's all week so paws crossed we will be okay. They are saying possible snow tomorrow 1-3" which is what they usually say & are seldom right. So hopefully it won't be too messy. At least it is not bitter cold now. Leaving a vote. Peace & love.

Mom feeds animals at the museum? Cool! Better than having to deal with ungrateful, greedy, controlling people like my Mom. When she retires she plans to volunteer working with animals. Nice sunny day. I am napping in front of the living room window basking in the sun. Feels great on my fur. Apparently it will be raining all day tomorrow so I'll enjoy this while I can.

Good morning. Gee that sure would be nice to just be able to stay home when the roads are bad. Mom is a social worker in a nursing home but even though she doesn't provide direct care to the residents, she would be penalized for not coming to work, no matter how bad the roads are. Cool.

Good morning. Mom goes to Lehigh University football games and the most they ever get is 17000, but not every game. This year was a bad year so the attendance was down. Good thing. Mom hates crowds! Rained all day yesterday but amazingly the streets are dry this morning! Praise God! Mom was very worried about having icy roads and she has to go over a couple hills. But even though it is 23* the roads are okay. Now it should warm up for the rest of the week. We'll take it. As much nice weather as we can get! Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day.

Good morning! Same here. I have only been out in the carrier going to the Vet since Mom brought me home from the shelter.

She went to the grocery store, Walmart & CVS. This week will be very cold with some snow tomorrow so she planned all her errands for today. It will be bitter cold this week. Down to 3* one night!

Good afternoon kitties, today's last topic is: TICKS!!!

They get under everyone's skin, suck up to anyone they can and spend much of their lives with their mouths buried in your pets flesh. They are also responsible for spreading Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme Disease.

MOW 'EM OVER: Ticks like to congregate several feet off the ground on vegetation along paths and roadsides. They patiently bide their time until dinner--your pet--comes walking by. Keeping grass and weeds trimmed to below ankle height will put ticks at a disadvantage.

ABOLISH THE NURSERY: Although mature ticks 'stalk' large prey, younger ticks typically feed on mice and other rodents before graduating to your pets. Making your yard inhospitable to rodents will help eliminate ticks. Remove brushy cover and rock piles, secure trash cans with lids. It is also a good idea to stack any firewood away from the house.

TAKE THE ROAD MOST TRAVELED: When hiking and taking Fido along, stick to areas away from large weedy places. Just stick to the trails and make sure Fido sticks with you.

GIVE HER A NEW COAT: Before heading out into the Country, protect your pet with a spray, dip or powder containing pyrethrins. Before using any insecticides on Fluffy, be sure to check the label to make certain it is safe for cats.

WATCH OUT HITCHHIKERS: After you and your pet return home, give him a careful going-over. While some species of ticks are easy to see, others aren't as big. It takes sharp eyes to spot them all. Ticks like being warm and protected, so pay special attention to the areas under the legs and in and around her ears.

COMB THEM OUT: If you spot ticks, spray your pet lightly with a tick insecticide and then comb his fir with a fine-toothed comb. They are available at Pet stores Nationwide.

TAKE FAST ACTION: If you should find a feeding tick, it's important to remove it quickly. The longer it feeds, the more likely it is to transmit Lyme Disease.

GIVE A GENTLE PULL: The best way to remove a tick is to take a pair of tweezers or forceps, grab as close to the ticks head as possible and gently pull it out. This way it come out nicely--heads and heels and all.

DO A DAB: For extra protection after removing the tick, dab the area with a topical antiseptic like Betadine Solution or an antibiotic ointment.

DISPOSE OF THEM CAREFULLY: Once you have removed a tick, don't just throw it in the trash or toilet. They don't die just because they have been detached. You could end up with ticks crawling out of your toilet at a most inopportune time. Put the detached tick in a jar partly filled with a rubbing alcohol or tick insecticide. Then cover the jar and dispose of it or keep it handy in case your pet develops Lyme Disease...you will need to it show the vet.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: Call your vet right away if you notice your pet not eating, their joints seem sore, you see open sores, fever, and diarrhea. They could even be partially paralyzed.

Hi Peppermint
Today, I had a big day. I am a polydactyl cat and I have 'thumbs' on my back legs. One of them had an ingrown claw. Today, I had to go to the vet and they trimmed my nails and got the ingrown part of that back claw out. It was really scary and I don't like going to the vet but my foot feels better now and is wrapped in a bandage. They did a good job and I'm glad it's over with. Hope you all have a happy new year!

Good afternoon kitties!! Today's topic: INSECT BITES & STINGS!!

To mosquitoes your pets are a four-legged free lunch. Bees, hornets and wasps, however may be too irritated to lunch...they will just sting and fly off. Here are some tips to help relieve stings!

GET THE POINT: If your pet has been targeted by a bee, somewhere in his coat is a stinger. To get it out, carefully part his hair to get a good view, then remove it with a pair of tweezers...if it not embedded to far in , trying scraping it out with your fingernail or a credit card. That way you are less likely to squeeze additional venom into the wound.

SOOTHE IT WITH SODA: Applying a paste of baking soda and water to the sting several times daily can help ease discomfort. A small dab of calamine lotion will also do the trick.

TRY M.O.M.: This OTC medication contains magnesium hydroxide, which will help reduce the itch and irritation. You can coat the sting several times a day with it. {DO NOT GIVE ORALLY}

GET HELP FROM YOUR KITCHEN: Meat tenderizers contain enzymes that help break down the poison in insect stings, reducing the itching. Make a paste by adding water to the tenderizer, then apply it directly to the sting...repeat often. {mom said this works for humans, too}

DAB ON SOME AMMONIA: Ammonia helps cut the pain of bug bites and stings...you can dab it on the sting with cotton several times a day.

HELP FROM A PLANT: Applying a thin layer of gel from an aloe vera plant will help ease discomfort and possibly speed healing. Aloe is very good for skin irritations...if you do not have an aloe vera plant, you can purchase the gel in any store.

TRY ANOTHER OTC: For areas that are sore and irritated, try applying a thin coat of hydrocortisone cream with 0.5 % hydrocortisone.

CHILL IT DOWN: Applying a cold compress to stings helps take the swelling down, dull the pain. Wrap a handful of ice cubes in a washcloth and hold it to the area for at least 5 minutes or longer.

REPEL THE PROBLEM: Dousing your pet with Avon Skin-so-soft will not only make her smell good, it also repels fleas, flies, mosquitoes and other stinging bugs. Put it in a spray bottle and spritz your pet every week or so.

Tomorrow: TICKS!!!

Back to business today! Our topic is: CHEWING!!! I wonder if toe nibbling is considered 'chewing'?

Dogs are born chewers and when the urge strikes, anything not tacked down will do. Even cats, which tend to use their nails to carve paths of destruction, will sometimes sick their teeth in such things and carpets or computer cords, etc.

JUST SAY NO--Letting your pet get away with chewing even once can set the stage for a lifetime of bad habits. When you catch your pet chewing something he shouldn't, say "NO!". Then replace the object with an appropriate chew toy and praise him when he takes interest in it.

ROTATE HIS TOYS: Instead of lavishing her with a dozen of her favorite toys all at once, give them to her one or two at a time, then exchange them every couple of days.

MAKE THE GOOD BETTER: Particularly when they're young, pets can't always figure out why it's okay to chew rawhide but wrong to feast on the Corinthian leather couch...to help him figure this out, it helps to make his toys really appealing...try coating his toy with peanut butter{dogs} or soak it in beef or chicken broth{cats & dogs}, or you may try rubbing it between your own hands to put your scent all over it....when he starts chewing the toy, praise him immensely.

MAKE THE BAD THINGS BITTER: If your cat or dog persists in chewing things he shouldn't, try using pet repellent. Pet store sell a variety of of repellents. Just wipe it on the furniture or spray it on objects you want him to leave alone. Pets do not like the bitter taste, so they will learn quickly.

HAVE BAD SCENTS: Most pets dislike the scents of perfumes and colognes, so mix a little perfume with water and then spray it on things you don'y want your pet to chew.

HIDE YOUR SHOES: People often wonder why pets always seem to go for their fave belongings. The reason is quite simple..they smell like you. Your pet thrives on your scent, especially when you're gone. Shoes are especially a favorite of dogs as leather is fun to chew...so keep your shoes out of your pets reach...cats will sometimes hide 'treasures' in your shoes, so beware!

Tomorrow: BLEEDING!

Thank you Peppermint and Family
For your condolences. We are sorry that we took so long but Mom is still very sad, she misses me so much. We had been together for over 19 years and we were so bonded with no other kitties interfering for attention. I sent Mom another kitty, to honor me by helping a homeless kitty,she will get his page up soon. He will never replace me but Mom has stopped crying so much. Mom hopes to get me back in my engraved box next week from the Pet Memorial Park, and she thinks she will feel better after I am back home. She also ordered an engraved metal badge in my memory for the cat statue in the courtyard of the San Diego Humane Society, and she can't wait to visit there to see it.

Thanks again for your kind words.

Come visit me, Sabrina ~*~ In Loving Memory ~*~ & Luigi.

You got that right, Peppermint
Jesse pees all over the house to mark his 'territory'..mom found it on her entertainment center, the closet door, the kitchen cabinet, the drapes, mom has Cat Urine remover and de-odorizer, but it doesn't help..no sooner mom cleans it up, he marks the same places over again..he remembers where he did it and will do it over and over again!

Jesse was neutered when he was a 8 week old kitten, so it has been 13 years and he even 'humps' me when he gets in the mood for love...can you believe that..his own sister...never tries with Sheba or Kali, only me. I just reach over and bite him and he jumps off.

Good Morning kitties. Today's topic is: ASTHMA

It wasn't so long ago the only thing in your yard faster then your cat was the occasional fly lucky enough to get away. These days, even short outdoor romps are triggering asthma attacks causing wheezing, coughing and fatigue.

SHAVE OFF A FEW POUNDS: While every cat should be 'fit & trim', it's particularly important for cats with asthma. The signs of asthma can be worse if kitty is obese.

CRANK UP THE HUMIDIFIER: Breathing dry air irritates the airways, which can trigger attacks. Try putting a vaporizer or a humidifier to boost humidity levels to between 30 - 40%.

KICK THE HABIT: Surely your cat doesn't smoke, but 2nd hand smoke from you or your friends can make the problem worse. Pets are more vulnerable to smoke then people.

BRING HIM INDOORS: If you suspect hay fever is kicking off his attacks, it might help to keep him indoors at the height of pollen season.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT LITTER: Most cat litters puff up the dust whenever Fluffy starts to dig. Look for dust-free litter or use sand instead.

DO EXTRA CLEANING: Even small amounts of floating dirt & dust can trigger an attack, so it's important to keep your cats area squeaky clean.

FILTER OUT THE PROBLEM: If your home is heated & Cooled with a central system, consider installing an electrostatic filter...They can be expensive, but they do filter out some types of particles.

TRY SUPPLEMENTAL PROTECTION: Some vets believe that giving cats antioxidant vitamins, which apparently help 'neutralize' harmful oxygen molecules in the body, can help relieve a number of health problems, including asthma. Give your cat a childs does of Vitamin C or E once a week. Just crumble it up and put it in her food.

CALM KITTY'S KARMA: Asthma has long been linked to stress in pets as well as people. When asthma is flaring, it might be a good idea to nix activities that upset your feline, like going to the groomer or vacuuming the floor.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: If your cat has just started coughing or wheezing, and has had asthma before, but the symptoms are getting worse, don't take chances. Call your vet right away...he can recommend what treatment is best for your feline friend.

TOMORROW: BITING.

QUEEN KELS KAT REMEDIES
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

Good morning kitties!!! Today's Topic is: HEARTWORMS!!!

It's bad enough when you get bitten by a hungry mosquito--and spend the rest of the day scratching.

For dogs and cats, however, mosquitoes are more then just an itchy annoyance.In certain parts of the Country like the Gulf Coast & Atlantic Coast, they carry heartworms. Most heartworms occur in dogs, however, cats can be infected as well.

STOP THEM AT THE GATE: Vets recommend that ALL dogs and some cats be given preventive medicine. This way, even if your pet is bitten by a mosquito, the medication is his bloodstream will destroy the infection...see your vet for the proper medication and dosage!

DON'T BE OVER CONFIDENT: Even if your pet never ventures outdoors, it's always possible that a mosquito may be in the house. Both indoor and outdoor pets should see a VET regularly for preventive medication.

DON'T NEGLECT THE TEST: It may be dangerous to give heartworm preventive medicine to a pet already infected, which is why most Vets perform a blood test before prescribing medication.

INVEST IN SNUG SCREENS: While you can't entirely exclude mosquitoes from your life{or your house}, putting up tight fitting screens will help keep the numbers low.

INVITE FRIENDS TO DINNER: Putting a Purple Martin birdhouse in your yard will attract these voracious birds, which can eat thousands of insects a day...It is also a good idea to eliminate ponds or pools of standing water where mosquitoes love to breed.

FOR CATS ONLY: Heartworms occur less often in cats, which is why cats aren't given the preventive medicine. Keep kitty indoors as much as possible, especially at night when mosquitoes are more prevalent.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: Once your pet gets heartworm, its a difficult condition to treat. The drugs used to eradicate the worms contain arsenic, which can be more dangerous then the disease. It is CRITICAL to see your pets vet at the first sign of symptoms, which include coughing, rapid breathing and fatique.

TOMORROW: JEALOUSY

♥ 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 "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.
