About Me

Active within 1 Day

Hi! My name is K. Spanky-Jack

I am Domestic Shorthair from Queens Village, NY

Nicknames: Jackie, Jackson, Panky, Little Jackie Paper, Jack the Ripper, Jackson Brown, Spanky-Jackson,- Trouble and Tippytoes (given to me by my friend Munchie)

Age: 8 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: I can open cabinet doors - even without the use of thumbs!

My favorite tricks and treats are: I roll over when I am talked to sweetly. and I love people tuna. I also like Temptations, Party Mix and Crispies.

Where I hang out: My favorite hang out spot used to be inside the center portion of the couch. I hid there for three weeks straight when my new family first brought me home. Now, I love to sleep on any available bed and I love the front window of the porch during the day. It is great people and bird watching!

My favorite grubs: I like to eat pretty much everything, but I love people tuna and whipped cream (which I really shouldn't have too much of). I also like a special treat every once in a while - I love to nip at toes and ankles.

My pet peeves: I don't particularly like the vacuum cleaner. I also don't like kisses, unless I am half asleep.

What I love about my owners: Wellll, let's see. I love that they rescued me from the shelter. I have a big house to play in. I also like that they don't get too mad at me when I chew papers and stuff. They love to give kisses and hugs, and although I don't sit still for that too much, I do secretly like it!

My cat hobbies: I LOVE to chew on anything paper or cardboard. I also like to play and run around a lot. Zooming up and down the stairs is one of my favorite things to do.

Pet motto: I LOOK innocent, therefore I AM!

How We Met

The way my family tells me is that their 21 year old cat had just crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, and they thought that they would take a look in a shelter the next week, just to see if there were any kittens that caught their eye. They went to Bide-A-Wee on Long Island (where I luckily was) and looked at a few cats, but none of them were "the one." Finally, as they were taking one last look around, they saw a small cat (me) in the back of a cage, hidden under a towel. They asked to take a look at just one more. So, the Bide-A-Wee people put us in a room together, and not only did I apparently catch their eyes that day, but I caught their hearts as well (yayy). That wasn't an easy task, because they were really attached to my late brother, Wheezer (whom I never met, but wish I had).

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!

Tomorrow: OBESITY!!!

Hi Spanky-Jack!
I wanted to come by to thank you for all your prayers and well wishes for me. I'm doing a little better today and things aren't looking quite so dark for Mom and Dad. They have made some adjustments for me and I'm a lot more comfortable, now. It looks like I will still be around, at least for Christmas. I heard that we are getting a bunch of new toys and although I haven't played with toys for a long time, I can enjoy watching my sibs playing with them.

I really do appreciate all your visits and prayers and I love you, my furiend! I hope you are doing real well. I'm leaving you a vote and wishes for a blessed evening and sweet dreams. Take care!

Lots of kitty kisses, hugs and purrs,
Duchess

Good afternoon. Today's topic is: CONSTIPATION!!

Your cats litter box hasn't been disturbed all day. Your dogs pooper scooper is beginning to collect dust. Could your furry friends be irregular?? Dogs and cats rarely get constipated, but it can happen and when it does, here are a few tips to help them 'move'.

MOBILIZE WITH METAMUCIL: This OTC laxative contains Psyllium seeds husks, which pull water into the stool and help move things along. Ask your vet for the right dosage for your pets size. To make it more pleasing, try mixing it with a small portion of her fave canned food. Or just add it to her dry kibble....make sure you put plenty of fresh water nearby so the Metamucil doesn't congeal.

BRING ON THE BRAN: A sprinkle of oat bran every day can help keep constipation away.Depending on the size of your pet add 1/2 tsp to 2 TBSP of oat bran to his food daily.

PASS IT WITH PUMPKIN: Canned pumpkin is an excellent source of fiber that can make your pet regular again. The bonus is that both dogs and cats seem to enjoy it. Mix a TBSP or 2 in her food for several days or until she is regular again.

SEND IN THE COWS: You are always told never to give dogs/cats milk cause it causes diarrhea. But when you have a constipated pet, milk could be just what she needs. Give her 1/8 of a cup if she is small or 1/2 cup for larger breeds{Dogs}..when she is regular again, wean her off the milk gradually.

WET HIS WHISTLE: Water is essential to your pets health, always have plenty available. Try placing several bowls of fresh water all over your house. Water helps his digestive system stay in balance.

SAY NO TO BONES: Eating rib, chicken or other crunchy soft bones can cause things to get blocked inside...or your small animal may choke on one or cut their throat if they get cut on the splintered bone.

TAKE HER FOR A WALK {DOGS}: The longer you make her wait to go, the harder and drier the stools get and that can lead to problems quickly...give your dog plenty of potty time.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: If you notice your pet has not 'gone' in days and everything you tried is n't working, call your vet asap..he may have a blockage preventing him from passing the stool. Your Vet can check out the pet and give you instructions on the course of treatment.

TOMORROW: NIPPING & BITING!

Hello K Spanky
Yippeee, I’m finally home! Nana & Mommy brought me home late yesterday afternoon. My little right leg is shaved and last night it was very stiff from having the IV for 3 days. This morning I am walking much better. I ate well last night, but this morning I only ate a little bit. I have gone potty & I am drinking water. My beautiful blue eyes are bright & shiny. Those are good signs. I am very happy to be home. Sissy & Casper Todd both missed me. They had to sniff me last night, then they left me alone. I slept in my heated bed all night.

Dr. William emailed Mommy the profile photo of me actually eating while at the vet office yesterday morning. We usually never eat while at the vet office, so he captured proof that I really did eat. In the photo, you can see the IV drip in my right leg.

I was diagnosed with CRF in May 2013. Until now, we have been very fortunate to be able to treat it with my prescription diet which has kept my levels near normal for 1 ½ years. Mommy is very proactive concerning our health & well-being. She takes us regularly to visit Dr. William for our bloodwork & follow up exams. Plus she will do whatever is necessary to keep us as healthy as possible, for as long as possible.

I go back to visit Dr. William next Wednesday morning for another BUN & Creatinine bloodwork recheck. Dr. William has not yet established how often I will need sub-q fluids. We are aiming for once a week, but next week’s bloodwork will determine if that is possible. Then, we will know if my BUN & Creatinine levels increase in a week. With those results, we will go forward with the needed treatment. Paws crossed for good mews please!

Hugs,
Q MerryBelle & Mommy Angela

♥ This Honor was so unXpected, but very sweet since mom had to take me to see Dr. Lisa late Thursday (12-11) afternoon! I was not a HAPPY boy and boy did I let her know! MOL! I meowed all the way there and back home. Mom thought I might have had a UTI, but my Urinalysis came back clear. Dr. Lisa was looking and cleaning me and I tried to bite her. It's suspected I have an infection in my Urethra (my peepee) so I got a Convenia injection and sent home with Panalog ointment for mom to TRY to put on my peepee area twice a day.
By the way, I gained TWO pounds since July which mom's not happy cuz now I am at 24.6 pounds! I almost forgot to tell you I left mom a smelly gift in the carrier on our way home! MOL!

♥ Mom told dad I am to be cut back on my food including NO MORE human food that he's always giving me! BUZZ OFF MOM! I'm feeling much better & yes, mom's still applying that ointment on me, but Thursday is the last day for it!

♥ Thank you for such an Honor with my 4th Cat of the Day Badge on 12/12/2014! Mom doesn't know how I got it since I only had a few votes that day! Thank you also for the sweet gifts and yummies (which mom took them all away from me), the cool balloons and toys along with all your friendships and prayers.

♥ Not only did I win COTD that day, but it was also my sibling NeuBee's #123633 6 year Adoptiversary then on 12/13 our doggie Carly #11000 won her 5th DOTD which was also another surprise. Mom finally got the Thank Yous done for NeuBee then Carly's so now it's just me left to do!

☃ Only 8 days left until Christmas ☃
Hi K Spanky-Jack,

I hope Fluffinella doesn't get too upset with me but I'm taking over the family blogging for the rest of the month. She'll be doing the special celebration visits, but I wanted to make sure to sprinkle all of our beloved CC furiends with my special golden angel dust to wrap up the year. Hmmm...I hear a little hiss from Fluffers but she loves me so she'll get over it...MOL!

FYI-Anyone that's requesting mom Jane's home address is getting it by email instead of here on CC to maintain more privacy for her. I know that many of you already have it but if you don't just leave me a blog on my page & mom will make sure she has your email so she can send it.

Now on to what we've been up to. The angels have been busy decorating for Christmas & making frequent trips to earth to spread joy, happiness & good-will to as many kitties & humans as possible. Our newest CC angels are settling in nicely & are doing well in their flying lessons & dust collecting runs. Soon they'll all be 'let loose' to fly on their own so if you haven't felt them yet, you soon will!

I've been watching mom making Christmas cookies, getting presents ready to wrap & addressing Christmas cards. We also took a little time off on Monday night to attend young sis' choir concert. It was a packed house with standing room only if you arrived late. Sis & the concert choir performed, as well as another high school choir (they do road trips to perform), the junior high, & also 4th graders. Their finale was a beautiful rendition of Silent Night by all of the kids as they lined the stage & aisles of the auditorium. It was so touching that all of the angels there that night were crying tears of joy as they flew from child to child to sprinkle them with angel dust. We saw a few pawents & grandpawents getting teary eyed too so it was the purrfect way to end an already pawsome night.
Well got to fly for now so mom can wrap some presents while the kids are at school. I'll meow at you again on Friday.

Purrs of love,
Angel K Zaboo & NICE Crew

Hello K Spanky
             
Thank you for your prayers & sweet Happy Adoptiversary wishes. I have good mews to share today! Dr. William called Mommy this morning to report that my levels have decreased even more after the IV fluids for 2 days. My BUN = 38 and Creat = 2.5. He wants me to finish this bag of fluids today, so Nana & Mommy will pick me up this afternoon.

I will visit Dr. William next week for another bloodwork recheck and sub-q fluids. Our goal right now is for me to receive sub-q fluids once a week. We hope & pray that plan works out. We will find out more next week.

Thanks again for your continued prayers. James 5:16 says “The intense prayer of the righteous is very powerful.” Amen to that!

guess what????
ALL the baking and christmas gifts are DONE all the way now janet finished everything around suppertime yesterday and is so proud of herself. she's up early to get cc/fb/email done she hopes this morning before she takes mommy over to northampton to have her hearing checked and hearing aide adjusted as it's long overdue by 2 years! janet hopes to get the last of the neigh-borhood gifts delivered on a walk this afternoon and then the very last to coworkers/asst. boss/boss in her dept. at the store as she always does something for them as it's only once a year as she's saying to those she sends christmas cards to. she's going to make vermont maple syrup baked beans tomorrow night for mommy's 87th birthday as it's something they both like and haven't had since july. rained here poured for 2 hours and now sounds like it might be just drizzle or have stopped. but come this weekend doesn't sound to good as old man winter will be paying us an-other visit with rain to snow or a sinker in reverse as we'll stay above freezing straight through next week which means more of the upper 30s to lower to mid 40s and we'll TAKE IT! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi K. Spanky-Jack,
How are you doing this evening? It has been a very hectic day here. First of all, we have been having a lot of trouble with our internet and Mom has made numerous phone calls to no avail. The soonest we can get service to come out is Thursday. Mom is very disgusted to be paying for a product that she considers sub-optimal. Then she has noticed that the pool water has been dropping so she took out the hose and started to put water back in to the pool. We had warmer weather today and tomorrow too so it is a good time to get the pool water level back up. Mom is hoping that there isn't a leak in the pool. All-in-all, a very tiring day and tomorrow Dad has another Dr. appointment. Mom says she will need a vacation when Dad gets back on his feet. Hehehe.!!! But, not to worry as I have been giving Mom and Dad plenty of purr therapy and I have been getting extra treats. Win- Win for all. I hope that you are having a good evening my friend. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...

Come visit me, Mittens. Merry Christmas..., Q. Angel Misty. Christmas is my favorite time...., Minuette. Waiting for Santa..., Greycee Mist. Christmas time is coming... & Gypsy: I'm being good for Santa...

Hello K Spanky
Thank you for your prayers for me & Mommy. Dr. William called Mommy at 8:15 this morning. He said this morning my BUN = 40 (down from 43) and Creatinine = 3.0 (down from 4.1) He was pleased that the IV fluids are helping my levels come down, especially the Creatinine. He told Mommy that I am wide awake and alert and had covered my food bowl. I never eat when at the vet's office.

Doc will do more bloodwork in 24 hours and call Mommy tomorrow morn. Mommy really believes (hopes) that I will come home tomorrow. Today is my Adopty Day and she hates that I am spending this special day at the vet. But she knows that I am where I need to be & I am getting the proper care.

We are very blessed to have such a wonderful vet and so many caring CC furiends. Please continue to keep us in your prayers. Your prayers are working.

Hugs,
Q MerryBelle & Mommy Angela

the only two flies in the ointment
will be a sinker in reverse on sunday and another sinker on christmas eve that one starting as ice to rain and the other rain to maybe a little light snow, don't know though as it's just been way to warm. we did hit 50 on sunday briefly, but it counts. mommy got her christmas shopping done and let natty pick out 3 more shirts he needed and then janet got a 3pack of gold toe socks for work as well as 2 turtlenecks both at different stores as one didn't carry what janet liked and the other well nat had more of a selection there and got a few on markdown too!

Hello K Spanky
Mommy & I both thank you for your prayers. We did not receive good mews concerning my bloodwork today. Even after having 200 cc of sub-q fluids on Thursday and again on Caturday, my levels did not go down very much. Today my BUN = 43 (was 49 Thursday) and Creatinine = 4.1 (was 4.2). Dr. William said we have to be more aggressive in my treatment, so I am staying at Doc’s for continuous, 24 hour IV fluids. He will do another BUN & Creat recheck tomorrow morning. And we will go from there.

As you can imagine, Mommy is very upset & worried even though she knows that I am where I need to be & that I am getting the best care & proper treatment. We both would appreciate your continued prayers.

Hugs,

too near 50 here today and tomorrow, clouding up, but staying dry no no showers even though some locals are still saying it, twc isn't showing anything till christmas eve next wednesday so all's good but we will have a 2 day cold spell lower 30s then upper 40s with showers christmas eve, so nothing new there. janet did make a 6 banana bread and that came out but the english spice cookies, well forget them they refuesed no matter what janet did adding things just wouldn't come out and she tossed it and will do gingerbread, molasses and then something new lemon-lime-orange sugar cookies. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi K. Spanky-Jack,
I hope that you and your family are enjoying a lovely Sunday. Mom is getting ready to make lunch in a short while. She bought zucchini and is going to grill it on her grill pan. A nice way to grill if you don't want to go outside. Now Dad would go out to the garage and grill but he isn't allowed to do that now. Mom is also heating up pulled pork that she and Dad made a few months back. Add some baked potatoes and it sounds like a tasty meal. My sisters and I will have our Sunday meal of Fancy Feast Cheddar Delights. We choose which one we want. Sometimes we can't agree so then Mom makes the decision. Hehehe.!!! Then it will be settle in for some football. A purrfect Sunday for me. I hope that you will have a wonderful day as well. Purrrs and a hug, Mittens

do you mean to say
that we were warmer here than you were south of us? maybe it was due that you were getting some winds in off the ocean? here it was 45 and will be a bit warmer today and tomorrow before showers on wednesday morning which likely will curtail any early morning walks like janet did yesterday and is getting ready to do and will have to leave here soon in order to get the sunrise like she did yesterday! she saw her first shooting star around 3:30 when she looked out her south window, first ever! sandy,ab,

yup
and janet's going to try getting a few sunrises this week from various points along southeast street like in back of her church at the little memorial park where they hold sunrise service for easter which will be the second week in april this coming year and then from mt. pollux as well. only 2 days we might not see the sunrise is wednesday with showers in the forecast and satur-day next weekend a sinker in reverse to all snow that afternoon into that night. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi K. Spanky-Jack,
Happy Friday to you. It is another very cold one here and we are all snuggling in front of the heat vents. It feels so good when the warm air blows through my fur. Now Mom finds it a bit bothersome as my fur is now blowing over the house. Hehehe.!!! Mom is happy that tonight we can watch our Pittsburgh Penguins play hockey. They have been off since Monday and Mom was in hockey withdrawl. Hehehe.!!! I hope that you are having a nice day and keeping warm. Purrs and a hug, Mittens..

Friday purrs
t's a very damp, foggy day in our area with temps still below 30. Hopefully tomorrow will bring some sunshine to help warm things up.
The Christmas decorating is finally done...woohoo! The kids finished up the tree in the living room last night. Now all that's left is for mom to sweep all the glitter up & put the last box back in the closet before furless Risten comes tomorrow. He's starting to wriggle around a lot & will soon be crawling so all of us that stay out when he's here will have to really start watching our tails! The main one to be wary will be Monkey since she insists on giving him kisses, but Patches likes to rub against him too so she'll also be on the 'grab' list! The rest of us generally hide out in the bedroom until he's gone...MOL!

I'd like to thank all of you that came by with condolences on the loss of my half-brother Davey! Your hugs, soft purrs, prayers & words of comfort have once again helped us get through hard times...& are lovingly, deeply appreciated. I imagine he's giving the other angels a good run by this time since he was always so full of energy...MOL! He was a tom cat through & through, yet gentle & sweet toward humans & his outside furfamily, so we know he'll make lots of new angel furiends as he flies through the clouds.

Well got to get pouncing so mom can pull out the noisy sweeper monster & finish putting things away. We should be back to normal (if there is such a thing) blogging again next week so will meow at you more then. Have a purrfectly pawtastic weekend!

Loving purrs,

at least
it wasn't all a kitchen sink or snow here 3.5" of rain totaled and 1/2" snow to end out the 4 day storm. at least temps are rebounding to the 40s here for the first half of next week and ending out colder lower 30s for highs, but mostly sunny all week just in time for janet's last week of vacation so she can enjoy those morning walks she's missed most of this past fall and some glorious sunrises she's missed as well. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hello K Spanky
Thanks for your prayers & good wishes. I did not receive good mews from Dr. William today. My BUN went from 29 to 49 and Creatinine from 2.3 to 4.2 So the kidney disease is progressing. I weigh only 8.9 pounds which is down a whole pound from June (9.9). I got sub q fluids today. I have to go back Saturday morning and Monday morning for more sub q. Also on Monday he will do another BUN & Creatinine check, to see if the hydration is helping.

The good mews is that my thyroid is normal (3.4), both ofmy eyes measured good on the Schirmer eye test and I do not have any red or irritated gums inmy mouth.My temp was 101.5 which is good and my RBC is very good – I am not anemic. I am not dehydrated as I still drink water. When we got home, I was starving so I ate some k/d canned tuna & veggies stew.

We are trying to focus on the pawsitives right now. But of course Mommy is very worried & upset. Please keep us in your prayers for better mews on Monday.

Hugs,
Q MerryBelle & Mommy Angela

Hi K. Spanky-Jack,
How was your day today? It was another busy one here. Mom was a dusting fool and the vaccuum monster was out and about too. We all ran and hid when we say that. Hehehe.!!! Now I am happy to be on the condo with my toy lion, resting and watching for any outdoor activity. There are plenty of birds at the feeders and a few deer even came for a seed snack. Also, yesterday Dad had another appointment with the foot Dr. He got a good report, both ankles are healing nicely but the stiches in the rt. ankle will remain for at least another week. Dad is getting a little anxious but pretty much doing what he should and listening to Mom and the Dr. Tonight Mom and I are planning to spend the evening reading and relaxing together. Always a favorite thing for me to do. I hope that you will have a great evening as well. Purrs and a hug, Mittens..

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!

yesterday was the first time in about a week or more we saw 40 as it was predicted all last week, but never materialized that's for sure! no shopping or errands here today, tomorrow will be the bank run and grocery shopping as nat decided to run errands yesterday so he can concentrate on getting to his history final which he started late yesterday and still has a paper to finish for english and then has the last paper almost done a reflection which they had to do before they started everything back in early september. had a quarter inch snow which is already melt-ing after a rainy afternoon and 40 yesterday. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hello K Spanky
What’s purring with you? I heard a nasty rumor that I have an appointment with Dr. William tomorrow morning for my 3 month BUN & Creatinine bloodwork recheck, Schirmer eye test & another thyroid panel. That means NO eating for anyone here tomorrow morning. If one of us has to do without food, Mommy says it’s only fair that we all should including herself. Boy, will Sissy & Casper Todd be mad!!!

I have not been eating well, which is a symptom of my kidney disease. Mommy is worried about me and we would appreciate your prayers.

With Warm Hugs,
Q MerryBelle

Good afternoon kitties. Today's topic is all about our eating habits: FUSSY EATING!

You probably remember Morris, the finicky feline whose fussy eating catapulted him to commercial fame. If you have your own "Morris" at home and he turns his nose up at everything you have to offer, here are some tips to perk up his taste-buds.

WALK AWAY AT MEALTIME: Instead of begging your pet to eat, put his meal down on the floor and walk away, when he gets hungry enough, he will eat it {says who?}

SET A TIME LIMIT: If your pet isn't finished eating in an hour, pick up the food and put it away...try again at a later time, but only leave it out 1 hour...when your pet realizes if he doesn't eat he will go hungry, he will eat rather then starve.

TABLE THE SCRAPS: While you pet loves leftovers and mealtime handouts, those rich goodies may be spoiling his appetite...would you eat cat/dog food if you knew you were getting steak, chops, chicken or burger every night?

SOME LIKE IT HOT: If your pet walks away from dry kibble, try adding warm water. This will soften the food and make it more appealing. Who doesn't enjoy a nice warm meal?

TANTALIZE HER TASTE BUDS: If your pet refuses to eat, try something a little different, try putting scraps of roast beef or burger in her food and mix it up. Don't overdo it as you might wind up with a plump pet.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: You know there's a problem when you whip up Fluffy or Fido's fave meal and he doesn't even want to take a lick. Most of the time it isn't nothing to worry about, some dogs can go 3-4 days without food...could be he has a tummy ache.

With cats however, liver function can be impaired even after short periods without food. So if Fluffy hasn't eaten in 2 days, take her to the Vet. Your Vet can discover why kitty isn't eating and recommend treatment!

TOMORROW: VOMITING!

soooooo....
how much rain did you folks get down your way? we got between 2-3" here and the rivers are out of their banks and likely will be with the snow which is falling around us the heavy crap and we have a chance tonight into early tomorrow morning to get a lit-tle of it on top of the rain/freezing rain and sleet. sure hope it's nothing like the skating rink we had around here yesterday as nat went down after he had put the mail out and gotten the paper going to the garage to get some sand and salt for the driveway. just a few bruises nothing major! janet's hoping on going back to work without incident tomorrow after making 2 pots of soup up yesterday and freezing one of chicken noodle and 2 of turkey noodle with enough leftover for one more meal tonight. sandy,ab,haley, angels

Hi Spanky
The paw print is made out of red clay, and yes it is breakable. Mom has to hide it from Luigi as he has broken a few things already. Mom does not want to have to glue my paw print back together!!

Hi K. Spanky-Jack,
How are you doing today? Mom has been busy all day. First she washed some clothes, then she paid bills and also wrote out most of her Christmas cards. Whew, I am tired just thinking about all of that. Hehehe.!!! Her foot is feeling somewhat better and she is so thank-ful. Yesterday she did the grocery shpping and I believe that she bought some Christmas gifts for us too. I may be going on a gift hunt later tonight, but don't tell Mom. I spent most of my day either snoozing or watching the birdies at the feeders. I hope that you are having a nice day as well. Purrs and a hug, Mittens...
