"The Boys" say,
Our issue this week will be a little short on much of anything as we've
had a busy week. I got a bit of extra client work unexpectedly over the
weekend, which has gotten me a little behind on my "cattin' around"
to our bloggie
Besides, this is Easter weekend and so we're getting ready for that.
"The Boys" and Chuck and I are
not doing the Easter egg dye thing this year. How about
We do want to say, though, that if we haven't "visited" you
at your blog, hang on. We'll be there shortly to
say hi. In the meantime, I
hope you're having a fun weekend.
the most AWESOME
on the planet! This means YOU! And we're "jumping up and down
excited" to WELCOME
the new subscribers that have
joined our weekly "reader's circle". Feel free to share "Mews Nooz"
with your "furry furriends" and their "beans". Or at least give them
the link to our sign-up box at Kittens 'n
Things. They'll thank you for
their very own copy.
Got the Sneezies
to Know If Your Cat Is Sick
Outdoor Funhouse - Cat Enclosure Tent
This Spot Is For You
of Our Meows
He's Got the Sneezies!
Mikey is something else! He's been sneezing and
sneezing for the last
several days. We don't know if he's allergic to himself or if he's just
a cold or what.
His eyes are not watery nor does he have a runny nose--thankfully.
But whenever he "takes his bath" (licks his paw and rubs it over his
face), he starts to sneeze. And he sneezes and sneezes and sneezes.
Sometimes 5 and 6 times in a row.
We've looked at his paw and it doesn't look like anything is out of the
ordinary, although since he is extremely
inquisitive, he could have put
his paw somewhere where it should not have been.
The question then
would be what?!
A trip to the vet for a shot may also be in order. And will be done if
he keeps up the sneezing much longer.
Taking Care of Kitty
Know If Your Cat Is Sick
you've had your cat and/or have been watching her for any length of
time, you know that when it comes to
cats, there are certain cat behavior
patterns that tell you your kitty is under par or not feeling well.
The most effective
sign of ill health in your cat is "sudden aggression".
Even though it is an accepted fact that domestication does not
completely get rid of the raw animal instinct of aggression, there
when a cat behaves completely out of character. And so, the best way to
your pet is sick is when it reacts with aggression towards family
is not a disease that is typical of cats but sometimes there
rare occurrences. And if your cat has been outside, and into something
like cats tend to do, there's a likely chance he came into contact with
something rabid. Such aggression can even go beyond the point of
intimidation to extreme violent attacks. So when any of these cat
patterns start to appear, you must take the cat to a vet
also might be able to tell when your kitty doesn't feel well by looking into his
eyes. For instance, while "The
Boys" can't actually "tell us" they don't feel
well, they might look a little
sad or like they might have a hurt somewhere and
that discomfort shows on their faces. Sometimes, too, their
"meow" might sound different from how it sounds when they're their
usual rambunctious kitty self. (If you have a stomach ache or
a toothache, you might show your pain in grimaces that you make, etc.)
you notice your cat eating more than usual you should know something is
probably wrong. For example, this could be a case of abdominal worms
away at the food your cat may have eaten.
Another cat behavior to look for is the unusual eating of
grass--the outside kitty is more inclined to exhibit this
Since, as a rule domestic, cats do not eat grass, if it
happens with your
kitty, it's could be a sign your
cat is feeling mildly sick, or perhaps suffering from an upset stomach.
So if you notice your kitty eating grass, hold off for a bit on
it was that it just ate--before you saw it chewing on grass.
Behaviors like any
of these are things that are most likely out of character for your cat,
one of them is enough to encourage you to load kitty into the
carrier and go off to
see the vet.
