M is for Miaow! Cats really are nicer than people!

Hi everyone! Today is M day for the A-Z Blogging Challenge.DSCF1080

Joanie and I are recommending Miaow! Cats really are nicer than people ! by Sir Patrick Moore. I am lucky my hubby is a Science nerd and reads Astronomy magazine or I would not have known about this book.

Sir Patrick Moore was the author of more than 70 books on Astronomy and also hosted the BBC’s TV show, The Sky at Night. In addition to that, he was a cat lover. This book was published in April of 2012, nine months before his passing. It is filled with beautiful photos of his cats and stories about them. “They never fail me” was one line in his book that really stood out. My cats never fail me either.

Thank you all for the purrs and prayers for Spooky as well as the suggestions. He did eat more Thursday than he did the 2 days before combined. He is still not eating enough, but I am hoping he eats a little more each day.

Spooky Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade today.

Last week I posted the beautiful badge that Toby’s Mom made for Spooky and this week we have another beautiful badge for Spooky made by Ann of Zoolatry. Thank you Ann!

Purrs and Prayers for SPOOKY

Spooky has been a trooper at sitting for his fluids. He has an appointment on Wednesday for more blood work. He has been enjoying his walks outside with his Dad on sunny days. And last week we received our prize from Fur Everywhere– a Yeowwww! heart.

Spooky had first dibs and he enjoyed it:

Feral Friday

Hi everyone! Last week I was offered a free sample of Pet Remedy a natural de-stress and calming spray. I had a choice of a plug-in or a spray , but I worry about plug-ins starting on fire so I went with the spry. We got this for free, but all opinions are our own.

The spray arrived on Monday which was perfect timing. Right after it arrived, I got the call from the people trapping the ferals for me. They had another one and he was not happy. He kept throwing himself against the back of the cage trying to get out. I sprayed this in the backseat of my car ( that is where I had the trap) and he stopped doing that.

The next day, when I brought him to the clinic, I sprayed the car again as well as the towel and he was fine the entire way. Added bonus, the smell of the spray covered his unneutered male odor. Now that he is quarantined, I spray it in his area twice a day to help him feel better.

It is made with valerian root which is known to be a calming agent. If you want to learn more about this or order your own here is the link .

Here is a link to an article about how helpful it is for all types of stress. Click here

I have a question. I know my niece got a rabies vaccine when she started working at a vat clinic many years ago. Today I called my Dr. and asked if I could get one that way when I am dealing with ferals, I won’t have to worry. I was told they cost $5,000 and you need to get that at the ER- most insurance companies don’t cover it. Does anyone have a rabies vaccine?

A Hop and a Challenge

I have been nominated by Annie of McGuffy’s Reader, to participate in the “Three Day Quote Challenge”. The rules of the challenge are simple. They are as follows:

1. Post for three consecutive days.
2. Choose and share one or three quotes each day.
3. Challenge three additional bloggers each day.

Today is Day 1 of my challenge and because I  completed a quote challenge 

in September where I used all cat quotes, I thought I would do some other favorite quotes. I love quotes and have a Pinterest page for my favorites.
My quote for today is from Eldridge Cleaver ,   “If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem” .  I just said this to my Mom yesterday when she was telling me I need to learn to mind my own business about cats that are not mine. I currently have a feral waiting to get spayed next week ( long story).

On Day 1, I now nominate the following bloggers:
For Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop, I am cheating a little. I didn’t make this art, but I am eagerly anticipating the both of these graphics on canvas from Vision Bedding and once they arrive, I will be having a giveaway so one lucky winner can get something custom-made of your choice. Thank you again, Ann of Zoolatry
for these: Stinky FOREVER
Over the Rainbow Bridge, Lucy
I have some other graphics that some of you made for me that I hope to have put on canvas someday too.

We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop with a photo of Sammy at The Grand Canyon with his special friend, Maggie. The Cats Scouts are spending the weekend there. I want to thank Dezi and Lexi’s Mom(http://dezizworld.com/http://dezizworld.com/ ) for giving me on the phone tech support to learn some editing programs. I still have a lot of practice to do, but she helped me with Ipiccy to cut the cats photos out to be used in other photos like this:


003The Lazy Pit Bull’s 52 Snapshots’ theme is “Favorite” so Millie is showing us his favorite toy-Da Bird. It is almost everyone’s favorite toy around here, about 10 of the 15 cats go crazy for this and it gets everyone’s attention. 52 Snapshots of Life
