Happy Tuesday everyone! Today is medical day and I have some news to report. Lucy had a UTI this past week. She always lets me know by making a point of squatting on the rug in front of me so I know she is having problems. I think she must have gotten stressed when we were gone overnight- even though she had Grammie. Lucy is MY kitty and I give her a lot of attention and spoiling. They are all spoiled, but she is beyond spoiled. 004

Luckily, I was able to get her right into the vet a few hours later and she was given an antibiotic shot. I was told it would kick in after an hour, but I also asked for pain meds so she wouldn’t have to suffer waiting. The vet gave her one dose that was good for 12 hours. Lucy loves her pain meds, they make her purr and drool.


Don’t forget to comment for a chance to win a pre- release of this book: 002Winner will be announced on Friday-by Lucy 🙂

At Home Test Kit for Cats

Saturday again already, its a long weekend here in the US for Labor Day. This has been another sad week in the blogging world. I was saddened to read about Jewel from:  http://fureverywhere.blogspot.com/  going to the Rainbow Bridge. Loving pets takes a strong heart because you know how it is going to end-too soon. But, I will take the pain any day to have enjoyed the love of a cat and I know that is how all of you feel too.

Today is product day and I haven’t purchased this yet, but I plan to. This is an at home test kit to check for 3 medical issues that are all to common in cats- diabetes, UTI and protein in urine. This kit can’t replace veterinary care, but it can be a good starting point. Here is the link : http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BLNR0ZI/ref=smi_www_rcolv2_go_smi?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creativeASIN=B00BLNR0ZI&linkCode=xm2&redirect=true&tag=healhand-20 . For under $20, it is a great way to save your cat the torture of traveling to an appointment if one is not needed.

Next week is a special school themed week. I am thinking of starting “Kitty Kindergarten” similar to Cat Scouts. Kitties could attend online once a week and get a report card and a certificate to post on their blogs and other social media. Would anyone be interested?
