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!

Hey Barney!
No problem. Our pleasure bring you all to the arena last night. Glad Mom enjoyed her movie! Nothing new here. Mom gave blood this morning and was going to go to a fundraiser for our shelter at a tavern in town but decided it was too cold to walk down there and she wasn't suppose to have any alcohol after giving blood. Plus she just donated a lot of supplies & money this past Wednesday. Besides, it is rather brisk! Too cold to walk 3/4 of a mile. So we took it easy today. The hockey game started at 7 PM. Go Hawks! Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Dean

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!!!

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!

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!!

YOU'RE IN LUCK
I found it on Ammie's page for you...if you happen to miss aymore, her page numbver is 208214..she has them all, unless CC was down...but I do believe that I just did that days blog the next day!

Anyway..here you are:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi K Barney
Yes, maybe it was, I don't recall..but if you make a run over to Ammie's page..I will get her number for you...all of the blogs are there, or should be unless CC was acting up..I do remember a day where I could not get on CC at all and was worried I wouldn't be queen if I could not leave a blog.

Be back..will retrieve Ammie's page for you..or if it is there...I will get it for you...in any case..I will be back!

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!!!

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.

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.

Tomorrow: BLADDER CONTROL PROBLEMS!!!

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!!!

Hey K Barney
Go to the OFFICE and read my edit...or it is on my KCK page. Sometimes you just have to do something fun to get over a bad loss...Mom does that quite often when we lose a lot and we had lost our 3rd game in a row with that game. We went from 2nd place to 6th place after 3 losses.

Headed to the Grand Ball Room at the Castle to post the menu for the party tomorrow...hope I get a good turnout!

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,

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!

Hi K. Barney and family
I truly appreciate your coming by to congratulate me on my COTD win November 23 and 24 (thanks to CC’s technical glitch!).

It was such an unexpected and wonderful win, and I so enjoyed all the goodies and best wishes from you. The catnip muffins were so yummy.

I so love my new family, even the Queen is coming around...she actually “allowed” me to share Momma’s lap with her a few nights ago. I try to play chase with all my sissies, but they are still a little unsure of my intentions. Momma says I am the most playful “kitten” she has ever seen, and so loving. For an old man of 13, I am full of energy and headbonks. The only thing Momma says drives her insane is my constant meowing at feeding times – for the 10 minutes it takes her or daddy to get the bowls ready, I never shut up for one second! What’s a migraine?

Again, thank you so much for the warm welcome and for the honor of COTD.

Life is Good!

Headbonks, CIRRUS

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!

Good afternoon kitties. Today we are discussing Animal bites to humans. Topic suggested by sisters, Dayzee, Duchess & Mischief.

Here's what to do if your 4-legged friend gets unfriendly.

NEVER PULL AWAY FROM A CAT: If your cat has your hand in his mouth, NEVER try to pull it away, he will think you are 'prey' and bite harder, instead, wait til he stops biting, or he may bite down damaging your muscles and tendons.
If you happen to have a spray bottle handy, you can spray Fluffy in the face, most cats do not enjoy being sprayed in the face and will run.

DO NOT WRESTLE WITH YOUR CAT: Unlike dogs, cats do not enjoy play wrestling, he may consider you attacking him and bite..if you try to pull your hand away suddenly he will bite down hard.

NEVER TRY TO PET A GROWLING CAT: If your cat is growling, he is probably angry and will swipe you or try to bite. Instead wait til kitty calms down and starts growling, then talk to her gently and then try to pet, if she growls, take your hand away.

TIPS IF ANIMALS BITE YOU:

ASSESS THE DAMAGE: Seek medical help for all bites except those that are minor.

THOROUGHLY WASH THE BITE: Animal bites--especially from cats--may transmit infection. Cleanse the wound thoroughly with warm water and soap to remove saliva, continue washing for a full 5 minutes.

CONTROL BLEEDING: If there is minor bleeding, cover the entire wound with a sterile gauze. You may put some ice against the gauze and elevate the wound above heart level to help stop bleeding.

BANDAGE THE AREA: When bleeding has stopped, cover the bite with a sterile bandage or clean cloth, tie or tape it loosely in place.

REDUCE PAIN: Use aspirin or acetaminophen to reduce pain. This is appropriate even if the bite did not break not break the skin., then apply ice if any swelling occurs.

GET A TETANUS SHOT: Any animal bite can lead to tetanus, so if you haven't had a shot in the past years, get one now!

SEE YOUR DR IMMEDIATELY: if you see redness, it feels hot to the touch or oozing or you think the bite is infected, see your DR ASAP....he will recommend an antibiotic and a course of treatment for you.

If you got bit by animal not your own, contact the animals owner to be sure if he is up to date on his rabies vaccine.

TOMORROW: FUSSY EATERS!

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 you their humans!

Thanks, K. Barney & family!
Actually, it WAS just yesterday I had my Adoptiversary. Well it was last week, and my special picture is still up from it. So time doesn't fly quite as fast as it looks like, mol.

Wow, I am really humbled to be in the special window the day after such a noble kitty as Angel K. Thomas! Thank you for coming to help me celebrate my 2nd COTD badge. I was just a little baby last year when I got my first one and would you believe I was actually afraid of it? I was such a goofball little kit!

So for my COTD, Mom said I could choose any ornament I wanted from the tree she put up yesterday, and take it down to play with it. Well, she didn’t actually SAY that, but that’s what I heard and today I captured my very first tree ornament. Mom made me let it go. Darn!

But what she doesn’t know is that I have a secret stash of Christmas tree balls and candy canes. I’ll set up the goal nets and we can play hockey. Gingerbread men are in goal, and when the game’s over we get to eat them with hot chocolate! Come on over, let’s have as much fun as we can before Mom catches us! -- Mojo Blackbear

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.

Mom is feeling quite a bit better today so she said I could finally meow at everyfur! Guess that means she'll finally be decorating for Christmas this weekend. That means boxes filled with sparkly things & extra temptations for Piggy & Sneakers...MOL! We're not sure how they'll be with the tree yet but if the past reputations of the rest of us are any indication then they'll be in trouble...MOL! It was just last year that mom found me in the middle of it with Trixie on branches below & Monkey above. Mom is hoping all of us 'older' kitties have outgrown the urge to climb the tree & play with the pretty ornaments but we only get the chance once a year. That means highly unlikely we'll be good all of the time mom...MOL! Mom got a lot of on-line shopping for the kids done this morning so when things start arriving we'll also 'help' with the wrapping.
Rain is heading our way in a few minutes so can't be on CC too long since the dog is outside & will need to come in before it starts, but wanted to let everyone know that mom is better & I should be able to blog normally next week.

Gotta run for now so I can see what the kittens are up to...& if they need a good chasing...MOL! Have a pawtastic weekend dear furiends!

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.

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

♥ Friday afternoon Mom snatched me out of my comfy bed on the back patio where I was napping and said that I had to see Dr. Nancy at 3:45. Mom wasn't happy with my still stuffy and wet nose. Dr. Nancy is putting me back on another round of Azithromycin antibiotic again starting Monday and hopefully this will take care of me completely! I did gain 4 ounces Oct 9th which now I am 13.2 pounds.

♥ Mom has received Sympathy cards for Bella's & Button's Momma Becky from 12 CC Friends and will be mailing them all together on Monday. Thank you to:
