That’s right. You heard me correctly. I know it’s not even November yet but I want you to be prepared. Now you and your furry feline friend can enjoy daily treats together as you count down the days to Christmas. Even if you don’t celebrate the holiday this is still a pretty neat idea to count down to pretty much anything – birthday, vet appointment, valentine’s day, first day of summer, I could keep going, etc. Start getting your cat excited for the holidays and head on over to Trade Joe’s for this one of a kind Advent calendar. Post pictures of you and your kitty enjoying delicious treats together, from day 1 to day 25. Bon Appetit!
Does your all white cat have blue eyes? Do they sometimes not come when called? Does it seem like they are not always listening? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might be dealing with something a little bigger than simply being ignored…deafness. This topic is actually news to me too. I didn’t know hereditary deafness was a major concern in white cats with blue eyes until one of my Facebook followers mentioned something to me. Per the Cornell Feline Heath Center, “researchers found that only 17 to 22 percent of white cats with non-blue eyes are born deaf. The percentage rises to 40 percent if the cat has one blue eye, while upwards of 65 to 85 percent of all-white cats with both eyes blue are deaf.” Here are a few more things to note if your furry feline is white and has one or both eyes blue.
This article is great at illustrating why we’re always saying to other people “Only a cat owner can understand.” Because it’s true! Only we, the cat owners of the world, truly do understand cat hair everywhere or random objects laying spewed on the floor as if they were pushed off of a high surface. What about your kitty’s backside always in your face or that toilet paper roll that never stood a chance. Personal space? What is that?! Just know that your feline friend, your furbaby, is the BOSS. And you’re okay with that because why? You are a cat owner. You understand.
Yes, but it can also be life-saving too. How? With this new litter called PrettyLitter.* The litter changes color if the urine is abnormal which can be indicative of a potential health problem in your cat such as a UTI (or Urinary Tract Infection), liver or kidney problems, and blood in the urine. There is even a color-coded key on the bag so you are able to match the color with the possible medical issue. If the litter changes color – head to your vet.
Besides catching a health issue early, this litter also controls odor and is easy to maintain, allowing the urine to evaporate leaving you to scoop only the urine or poop, nothing more. And one bag of litter lasts a month so you won’t need to worry about switching it out weekly. It’s also free of toxins and ships free – BONUS! Check out a quick video to learn more.
