"The Boys" say,
how's your week been?
If you've been by Kittens 'n
Things, you know "The Boys" and I and
Chuck have had a bit of excitement going on since Saturday (January
29), what with Bowie having an asthma attack that lasted a little
longer than we were comfortable with (see "Scary
Morning" at Kittens
'n Things) to get the skivvy!
then the neighbor's garage exploded...details of that are in my this
week's "On the
Bright Side" ezine, which I published February 4, 2011.
short, the garage is right next-door to us, the garage is a total loss
(we actually thought the neighbor might be in the garage as he often
spends hours in his garage working on his art sculpting/welding
business/hobby) and their house was scorched on the west
The smoke was black and pretty thick a
few times, and Chuck and I were really concerned all that smoke
might not be good for Bowie. As it
was, we could smell the smoke in our kitchen for several

Care of Kitty
How to Make Your Cat Happy
by JD Benson
knows that cats are animals with a great calm and would do anything to
make their owners feels as good as possible. Therefore, you should
always try to do anything possible to make your cat feel happy.
There are a great number of methods that are not expensive at all.
good understanding between the cat and its owner is a very important
step for the development of a good relationship. Always try to pay
attention to every gesture of your pet. Even if you do not have very
much time, a few minutes a day would make your cat very happy. Be
attentive to her needs.
If you watch TV and the
little animal comes next to you, you will defiinitely want it to feel
comfortable as possible. This does not require a lot of
and you can watch TV and give your cat attention at the same time. Your
cat needs to know that she is loved.
her rest whenever she needs it
sleep over and over, being one of the laziest pets one can own. On the
other hand, they can be full of life if they want to and feel
mood for this. You should always keep in mind that usually cats require
sleep after eating. Do not deprive your pet of this desire. In this
way, she will also understand you when you require getting some rest
your animal its favorite foods
Cats do not want to eat the same food every day. The more you vary it,
the more contented your pet will be.
with her yourself!
do not need to spend much money on expensive toys for cats. Simply
attach a small jumping ball to a wire and you will make your cat the
happiest animal. If the animal does not seem interested in the toy, it
means that you need to intervene in the game.
the water and bedding
want to drink fresh water always. It only takes 2 minutes to change it.
Moreover, you should also try to change the bedding as often as
in order to always keep it clean. This process does not require a great
effort either and it takes only about 5 minutes.
Finally, always remember: Love your cat because in
she will share the same feeling for you.

Actually, they love the thought of any bed--whether it's theirs or ours.
"The Boys" also have plenty of similar snooze places to be able to say
love the thought of this
one and are thrilled to give
you know, "The Boys"
and I "travel around the web," looking at all of the really neat kitty
blogs that we can feature here in "It's Your turn."
So today, we're doing a re-run - in case you missed "Charlie" the first
time around, showered with love and affection by Jennifer, aka, "Old Kitty!"
"Old Kitty" tells
it like this...
"I first met Charlie over the Internet.
I only noticed him because he was featured in a blog ran by an editor
about the publishing business and other author-related posts. So when
she featured Charlie as looking for a new home because her owner (the
editor's friend) could no longer keep him, it was certainly a most
unusual post to remember!
At that time I was only two months into my blogging adventure. I was
also looking after my very sickly and elderly cat - my tough ol' girl -
who was nearly 18 years old but suffering from a very aggressive form
of renal Lymphoma.
Unfortunately she died soon after. I had always declared how I would
never think of getting another cat during her illness. But after my
cat's death I kept
thinking of that blog post about Charlie.
I really thought that he would have found a home by the time I
contacted the editor's blog. To my surprise
I was told that Charlie was still looking for a home and that his owner
was desperate because she did not want to leave him in a cat shelter
that was the only option for her. After a week of long phone
conversations and lots of email exchanges, Charlie was finally
delivered to me.
I miss my tough ol' girl very much but living with Charlie who is eight
years old, healthy and fit and raring to embrace life has helped me so
I'm very glad for the blogging world for bringing him to me."
And look at that tummy! in the photo left, above ^^^!
