If you’ve ever had a pet go missing, you might understand what I’m talking about. If not, let me share with you the reason why it’s so important to have good pet pictures. I’m not talking about the cute ones where they are sleeping or 1/2 a mile away from the camera or hiding behind the curtains, I’m talking well-lit, in the daylight, full body shots. The kind that you can put on posters if you ever have a pet go missing.
If you’ve never heard of Cytauxzoonosis aka Bobcat Fever, it’s time to become familiar. As one of the most deadly diseases to affect cats that you’ve probably never heard of, it is well worth your time to know the details. Knowing them could mean the difference between life and death for your cat.
Because there is no law that says eggnog can only be enjoyed around the holidays, and because I always have a fresh supply of eggs and happen to be a year-round fan of it, I make eggnog whenever I want.
I admit it. I used to just be a ‘dog person’. Sure, I’d grown up with dogs AND cats, but they were mostly barn cats that did their own thing, and aside from playing with the half-wild kittens when they were still young enough to handle, there wasn’t a whole lot of interaction. They were kind of typical cats. They did their thing and us humans did ours. It wasn’t that I didn’t like cats, I’d just never been as close to a cat as I had dogs. That give-or-take-them mentality followed me into adulthood, until five years ago this week, when a little orange and cream swirled cat forever changed how I feel about cats.
Chickens. Throw ’em in the backyard, let them eat bugs and whatever else chickens eat, and reap the rewards of healthy, fresh eggs. Yeah, right. If it were that simple, I wouldn’t be writing this post.
Abby, my labrador, has had environmental allergies to some extent, since she was around two years old, when she developed her first hot spot on her chest. Yesterday, she turned nine. Luckily, for most of those years, she’d been doing well on these supplements http://amzn.to/2oabvd7 and this shampoo http://amzn.to/2oQ9PEc. Every year, around June, she’d go on the supplements and get her medicated baths about once a month until August or September, when the offending allergen had subsided. We were then good until the next summer. That was our schedule.
A few years ago, while online looking up how to cure one of many things I’ve looked up over the years, I ran across an invaluable website. I have found it very helpful for treating different ailments in both my animals and myself since then. The funny thing about this website is, most of the natural remedies can be found in your kitchen and they really do work.
A few months ago, I thought I was going to be adding a 7th cat to the crew and an 11th furry family member. It apparently wasn’t meant to be, but it wasn’t for lack of trying and it doesn’t stop me from wondering and worrying if the little cat is ok out there wherever it ended up.
Two months ago, Abby, my yellow lab, underwent lipoma surgery. The mass the vet removed was 12 lbs. and was encapsulated, but it had been hit and bruised, so when they performed the surgery, Abby bled heavily, causing her to have a pretty tense surgery and long recovery.
