Hi all,

I am working with Petcentric and I wanted to let you know about a fun Treasure Hunt contest available on the page. One lucky winner will get a trip to NYC and second prize is a Pet and Owner Spa Day.

It's a pretty fun way to pass the time when you're using the computer. Visit the site: http://www.petcentric.com/Fun-Games/Treasure-Hunt/Default.aspx and start your Treasure Hunt.

Happy Hunting!

I ran across this cool article that answers questions from a cat's and human's perspective. I thought it was so cute and wanted to share it with all of you.

You can read the article here: http://www.petcentric.com/Stories/Articles/Cat-Questions-From-Your-C ats-Point-of-View.aspx?articleid=ce20e234-9954-456c-8b8d-4f549bbf74a 6

There are a few things to make you feel more at ease in your space. For starters, toys and a bed/towel,blanket that are new with no other cat's sent. These can be kept where ever you feel most comfortable to establish a safe zone and relieve stress. You should also have your own little to reduce. There is a article on petcentric below that mentions there should be one little for each kitty plus one extra.

Posi tive reinforcement is also very helpful. If you mom were to give you something you like such as a treat, toy, or playtime, that may encourage you to interact more and reduce stress and fear

Grooming > Steps to Bathe a Cat

Yeah, the last time I gave them baths, it ended in bloodshed and scarring, though the cats were fine. One of them was actually fine with it and just sat there petrified (poor thing). Unfortunately, two out of three had ringworm, so I had little choice. Since then, I have resorted to alternate methods like the one in the follow up article

http://www.petcentric.com/Stories/Articles/How-Some-Cleve r-People-Give-Their-Cats-a-Bath.aspx?articleid=761e37d7-dbd5-441a-9f f1-e247c0a7426a

Specifically, I have used either warm towel, or kitty wipes. It would be nice to find a way to actually bathe them without serious harm though when needed. I think if I have clipped their claws, it would have worked much better.

Kitten Corner > My kitten will not touch wet food.....

Several of mine never really had wet food until they were older, so not something to worry too much about. You could also try something in the middle like a little tuna. But not drinking water would be a much bigger deal...thats where they should be getting their hydration

Grooming > No litter in the litter box?

Yeah, it would seem they definitely could have put some thought into that before just giving the cats an empty box...poor kitties.

11 steps to bathing a cat article from petcentric:

http://www.petcentric.com/Stories/Articles/Preparing- for-The-Cat-Bath.aspx?articleid=a9f6e2df-aadf-46b5-9824-a39ee79df563

I have missed step 3 a couple times and paid dearly for my mistake! Thought it may be useful for anyone that dares try. I have actually used some of the ideas in the follow up article since my kitties have expressed a pretty high distaste for water.

" Step 3:
Clip your cat’s nails. This is a safety precaution that is often overlooked. If you have not done this before, ask your veterinarian or groomer to show you the proper method of clipping."

Behavior & Training > licking on blankets, bedding, etc.

"Dog" did/does that as well, but it seems to only be particular fabrics. We have one soft nit through blanket that she will lick for several minutes at a time. Seems to be gripped on her tongue and maybe she likes that. Leaves other blankets alone

Choosing the Right Cat > How did everyone get there cat and why did you name them the name you did?

I got Dog, and my late Stripe when I moved into a house in college where they lived outside as wild, but friendly cats. Stripe (a striped tabby) was a kitten (along with others). Dog was named by my roommate that did not like cats. Over time they sort of adopted me, and I took them with me when I moved.

A couple years later, my girlfriend adopted our other cat Pepper from a cat rescue group. Pepper because she is a black cat that as a kitten, had a sprinkling of white hairs.

Behavior & Training > Does your kitty like you watching her eat?

Mine definitely do not like being watched and never have. Both are visual upset if I lurk by them while eating and will often leave their food. Pepper (the skittish one) will often leave her food hours if at all disturbed when eating, even with something she really likes
