  2. Natural Cat Products

    December 1, 2011 by shellb

    People are becoming more and more interested in natural remedies. I have collected many books over the years on the subject and have tried some myself. I have also used them on my cats, with great results. A word of caution: natural remedies have to used with caution just as you would regular medications. Be sure you read up on what something does and what the side effects might be and always ask your vet about it first. I am going to tell you about three of the things I’ve tried and how successful they were.

    Calendula for cat acne and healing

    When I saw my first case of cat acne, I was horrified and had no idea what it was. My cats chin was totally black and I rushed him to the vet. Turned out it was acne and he gave me some cream to use. Well, that didn’t work, so I went back and he gave me another cream to use. That didn’t work as well and I was out quite a bit of money and frustrated that I couldn’t get rid of my cats acne! I went to my natural cat books and read about Calendula. It is very safe to use and so I tried it. You can get it in liquid form which you can mix with some water. I started cleaning his chin with this mixture and I could not believe the results. Within two days his acne was gone! I continued to wipe his chin for a few days after that and then stopped. Not only did it clear it up, he never got acne again.

    Calendula is also great for cuts or minor wounds. It heals very quickly, so the only thing you have to be careful of is if the wound could be abscessed.  If so, the abscess must be thoroughly drained before putting calendula on it. The calendula heals so quickly that if there is any infection left, it will heal over and another abscess could form. However, with minor cuts and wounds, this usually isn’t a problem. Just clean the area well first and then apply the calendula. It is amazing stuff!

    Echinacea for ringworm

    When one of my cats got ringworm, I  took him to the vet and was given medication to put on him. Again, it didn’t seem to be working, so I went back to my books on natural remedies and found out about echinacea. I got just pure echinacea tincture and started using that. He had the ringworm over a good portion of his body and it cleared up in a very short time. Herbal remedies really do work much better sometimes than traditional medications.  They are also less expensive, which certainly helps too. I don’t know how much money I’ve spent over the years at the vets with treatments that didn’t work. That’s not to say that there aren’t times when the medications they give you aren’t necessary and the only thing that would help, but there are many times the herbal remedies work not only better, but are also safer.

    Flower Essences

    To be honest, when I first read about flower essences, I was quite skeptical. How could an energetic imprint of a flower help? It was something I didn’t even totally comprehend, let alone believe could work. However, the more I read about them, the more I thought they might be worth a try. I have never read anything about bad side effects of these and they are thought to be completely safe. These are for emotional problems our pets have, like being overly aggressive or extremely timid. One of them, Bach Flower Rescue Remedy (which is probably the best known brand of flower essences and has been around for a very long time) is for any kind of emotional stress. I tried it on some of my cats before taking them to the vet. I would squirt the recommended dosage in their mouths and they didn’t seem to mind the taste, which was a welcome relief.

    I won’t say that it calmed them down completely, like a sedative would, but they did seem less stressed out by the visit. Some people put a few drops in their pets water bowls and they swear they find their animals calmer. This is not just for animals and I have tried it myself. I did feel calmer after using it. This is nothing extreme, but it proves to me that it does help. There are many different flower essence formulas for many different problems. They are certainly worth a try.

    So, these are just three natural products I have tried and had success with. I try to use natural products whenever possible for everything from health issues to cleaning products. I think they are definitely safer and less harmful to the body. Get a good book on natural pet remedies and read up. There are some wonderful products that will benefit your pets.

  3. Small, Medium and Large Cat Furniture

    September 8, 2011 by shellb

    With so many sizes to choose from, it’s easy to find just the right piece of cat furniture for kitty. A large one is always a great choice, as it gives them lots of play room and scratching posts. Most of the larger ones have toys attached, enclosed cubicles to hide in, and lots of levels. If you have more than one cat, a large one is the obvious choice. This not only gives each cat an area to claim as his own, but it invites them to play with each other. Watching their antics on one of these great towers is truly entertaining! It also makes them bond and become better friends.

    The medium size is great if you are a little cramped for space. They still have plenty of levels and “extras” to keep your cat amused and happy, but can easily fit into smaller areas. It’s also nice to have several of these throughout the house, so the medium sized cat furniture can be a more economical choice. If kitty is bothering you while you sleep, a cat condo put in your bedroom can give them a place to curl up. Having their own sleeping place will give you more freedom in your own bed. You both will sleep better. The medium sized cat furniture is perfect for kittens, as it will seem large to them at that age.

    The small sized cat furniture is wonderful tucked into corners and nooks in your house. They usually have a top section that is perfect for sleeping and relaxing. Some have enclosed areas on the bottom that they can hide in and get that feeling of security and safety. This is so important to cats. They need to have a safe place and cat furniture provides that. The smaller ones can be placed in all kinds of unique places that will delight your cat. Whatever size you choose, your cat will have his own place to play, relax, sleep, or just observe the world. Cat furniture provides more than just fun, it gives them all kinds of other benefits: exercise, safety, security, and will fill that special need your cat has for his own territory.

    These small ones are great for a kitten or if you’re cramped for space. Click on any image to get details!
