The other day at work I beheld one
of God’s most curious, attractive and intelligent creatures: the cat. It was at
close range-on the bonnet of my car, in fact. What transpired in the next
twenty minutes convinced me that cat pet insurance and cat accessories are
quite unnecessary. Cats are a law unto themselves. They have a cunning scheme
of world domination, quite obviously own their masters and treat them and
everybody else with superior disdain.
Even if you used cat proof fencing
these silky smooth operators would find a way to get to the shops and get their
hair coiffed and groomed and their nails done at the same time-the bill, of
course, no concern to them.
I was briefly resting in my car in
between sales calls. It was a bright sunny winter’s day and I was at a Seniors
Retirement facility. Whilst nurses and those in their care were planning their
day, some taking the sun, a black cat with green eyes jumped on the bonnet of
my car and started preening itself.
And I mean-it went to town! It
started licking one haunch then the other. Then it looked around furtively and
started giving its lower legs a tongue massage, then moving on to its belly
where it cleaned and straightened any disheveled tufts of hair.
I was captivated and it seemed the
cat did not see me at all through the windscreen, even though I was no more
than three feet from it. Perhaps it was the glare of the harsh light that
prevented this?-I wondered. The preening carried on for quite a while. At one
point the local sphinx locked eyes with me and then, obviously unimpressed with
the perceived level of threat, lifted its head imperiously into the crisp
winter air and … Read more
Australian finches are remarkable
little birds. The name is a broad term and is so named because there are many
different types of finches that fit into this category. Some are the Zebra
Finch, Painted Finch, Lady Gouldian and there are a variety of more that fit
into the category.
Of all of the birds that are
considered part of the Australian family the Zebra finch makes the best pet.
For those families or individuals that like birds and want a pet this is the
most hardy and easy to keep. They do require a few things but nothing of any
Zebra finch as already discussed
is part of Australian finches classification. They sing and will do well in a
small to medium bird cage. They need a well balanced diet and to be kept warm
and out of drafts.
When choosing a pet bird these
sweet finches are the easiest to keep. When choosing the right foods for their
diets it is important to remember to keep it well balanced with seed, greens
and protein. One of the best foods to give them is mashed hard boiled eggs.
When trying to introduce the
Australian finch to new foods it is best to do it while they are young. Older
birds tend to shy away from anything new and will be harder to convince that
the new food supply is good for them. If a breeder has an older bird that will
eat a variety of foods many times this bird will be used as a trainer. When it
is feeding time the breeder will put the older bird in with the youngsters and
they will see the trainer eat the foods. It is important to offer greens to
your Australian finches to maintain good health.

Halloween is an awesome part of
the year, when everybody gets to have fun pretending to be whomever or whatever
they want, show off their creativity, and gather with friends for a spooky good
time. This is not even to mention the treat of seeing little kids and pets
dressed up… and the candy! Who can forget the candy?
While the celebration is going
on, however, there are some things to remember in order to keep pets happy and
healthy during all the hoopla.
1. Most important of any
Halloween tip: Don’t feed Fido or Fluffy any candy! Chocolate especially is
poisonous to animals, but any sugary treat can be dangerous and make your pet
sick. It’s not just the candy itself you need to watch out for, either – the
wrappers can cause choking and digestive problems. It’s important to make sure
kids understand this too. It’s only natural they want to share their loot with
their best friend!
2. Keep your pet away from
seasonal produce such as pumpkin and corn -they may not kill your pet, but they
can cause serious stomach upset as well.
3. it’s a good idea to keep your
pet in a quiet, comfortable room away from the front door during trick or
treating hours. Pets can become nervous or frightened by the noise and
excitement, or all the strangers appearing at their door. They may try to
escape or even bite in such confusing circumstances! Better to let them relax
somewhere else in the house, or even crate them with their favorite blanket and
4. If you use some of the
imaginative and cool electric decorations out there, make sure the cords and
plugs are secured away from your pet’s nosy mouths and paws.
5. If you decide to dress up … Read more
