Picking the Best Cat Litter
Today there are so many kinds of litters.
Prior to the mid-1940s, cats did their business outside. But the more domesticated they became, soon some were living indoors full time. Sand, dirt, paper, wood ashes became a part of the indoor lifestyle for a cat. Messy, tracked throughout the home, and not so great on hiding odor. In 1947 clay was used and named Kitty Litter.
The home resident cat has come a long ways. Happier caregivers found better solutions. I don’t think the cat has changed its preferences, but has adapted to whatever we stick in the litter box.
Where cats sleep says a lot.
A stressed out cat will hide and stay out of high traffic areas. Avoiding noise and disturbances from the two-legged or even four-legged members of the family.
In the above photo Lily fell asleep in the warm sun. Not sure why she picked the messy coffee table, but I guess the warmth was inviting.

Tomorrow could be an entirely different story. Never count on trying to impress friends with your intelligent performing cat. They might do a great job of humiliating your bragging. Continue reading
Eliminate Visits to the Vet
You want your furry family to be healthy.
Ever felt liked you failed them?
You are not alone.
Our pets can’t tell us we are making them ill. Even if they could, we might not understand what’s causing the problem.
Lysine an Alternative
With a runny nose and one watery eye, the vet suggested Lucy take Lysine.
Interesting, as I thought we were in for a round of antibiotics. A refreshing alternative. Advocate for vitamins and minerals as a decent cure for what ails you or a pet.
Much prefer a drugless solution. Drugs are not a natural substance found in our systems. I doubt anyone is ever lacking in aspirin. Yes, it helps. But if the cause of ailments is a lack of a vitamin or a mineral, doesn’t it make more sense to fill the void?
