Loving Care for Cats

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today is medical day and I have some resources to share with you full of tips to keep your kitty safe.

First is an online Home Safety Guide: http://www.expertise.com/home-and-garden/pet-safety-guide . This is a comprehensive guide to the many dangers in our homes from poisonous plants to foods bad for them. It includes charts and links to other sites with more information. There are also suggestions for problems like sneaking in cabinets or small places.

The other resource is a book that I won from our friends at Fur Everywhere. Cat Skills: Loving Care for Cats by Leslie Goodwin is also a comprehensive guide for pet parents. I like that it isn’t too wordy, she gets right to the point and gives the information you are looking for. It is only 135 pages, but covers so many topics from nutrition, litter box issues, aging issues and so much more. There is also a CATalog at the end with useful websites.

You can purchase the paperback new at Amazon for under $10, and under $5 for the Kindle edition. Here is the link: Cat Skills .

Don’t forget to comment to be entered in the Black Cat Themed Giveaway:

Kangaroo Hopping

Saturdays are for hopping and nothing hops better than a kangaroo. I was thrilled to get a package in the mail from Australia. Most of you probably know Fozziemum , but if you don’t then please check out her link. She lives in the Outback with lots of pets and is an incredible photographer. She takes amazing photos of nature and my favorites are of the kangaroos. Words can’t express how happy getting these 12 cards in the mail have made me. I doubt I am going to send any of them, I am definitely framing some of them, if not all.

These are my entry for The Lazy Pit Bull’s #52 Snapshots of Life, the theme this week is “framed” and these deserve to be framed. Thank you Fozziemum.

ROAR for 2 Blogs

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today is ROAR day, I feel bad that I can only give $10 a week to one cause. There are so many and I want to give more money and to more than one. I truly hope I can make some money with the blog someday so I can use it to give more.

The ROAR I chose this week is for Fur Everywhere to help get Milita’s bad teeth removed: https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/8z06/help-treat-milita-s-periodontal-disease . I have been wanting to do something in memory of Jewel so I thought this was perfect being that Milita is Jewel’s sister.

If you are feeling extra generous or want to get your kitties a gift, another blogger, http://www.kittyblog.net/ ( Tales from the Foster Kittens) is also raising money for her kitty’s medical needs with a sale: http://tfkfundraiser.blogspot.com/. She has lots of nice toys at good prices that include shipping.

Here is Stinky as Little Miss Muffet- Stinky doesn’t do costumes, she is more of a props kitty.
