Can your cat get along with your guinea pig? #CATS #GUINEAPIG

The answer is YES! with caution. My cats get along with my guinea pigs but I always am present as you are clearly dealing with a predator and a prey animal and you never know when that deep predator personality may come out. I let my cat sniff the guinea pig and vs/vs they may end up playing or even comfortably lay down near each other.

Remember too a cat may accidentally scratch a cute little piggie by accident too always always supervise play time.

My cat Maxi is a nut about play. She absolutely loves toys the only problem I have is that once Maxi got the smart cat mice.. BRANCH our dog loves them too! They love pouncing them in the air and then playing with them. These are so cute and all my cats love them.. but Maxi is just gaga over these toys. If your cat is a toy lover score some of these for your critters :)

Lucky Pet tags


Metal Bone Dog Tag,  - Lucky PetNeon Plastic Tags,  - Lucky Pet

My dog "Branch" got his first dog pet tag thanks to LuckyPet.com. We got our dog in October 2017 and it feels so good to have his little tag that says his name and who he belongs to. For this review Lucky Pet sent us 2 tags a metal one and a plastic one. The writing was clear and they are sturdy for your active pet. The site has many beautiful tags and the choices are fantastic. Check it out for yourself and get a tag on all your critters. I did receive this item for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

How I trained my cat to walk on a leash

Image result for how to train your cat on a leash   Those of you that have followed me around the net for awhile knew that my cat Mister Kitty always walked on a leash.I had never trained a cat to walk on a leash prior to Mister Kitty but here is how I did it. I tried to at first walk him with a harness and a leash- It worked somewhat but really wasn't working. I found that the best thing I did was to put Mister Kitty on a dog lead with his kitty harness. Once Mister Kitty knew HE was in control he just felt comfortable and I was able to put him on a regular leash to walk him. It was super easy. I would just put Mister Kitty on the lead and he was able to run around his area between our back porch and a tree and had a ball. When I wanted to walk with him I just switched him over to his leash. I have 3 cats and a dog now and only the dog is on the leash - it just isn't practical to train them it all depends on the situation. These guys are in "herding mode" and pretty much all stick together and want to be together 24/7 so the leash isn't as important as when I had just the one cat and would worry he would wander off. My disclaimer check with your vet to make sure he thinks it is right for your pet.

HELP! My Cat won't eat or drink! #CATS

Image result for sick cat   My cat won't eat or drink what can you do?

Let me start by saying I live on a little farm so we have been able to save a lot of our animals by just doing common sense things but ALWAYS consult your vet. 

These remedies have worked for me but like I always say consult your vet. My cat Blue had a bad cold and would not eat or drink. I did some quick work before I called the vet. I washed her face and nose - all that gross runny stuff. I called my prayer partners - Pray for my cat!  Put a small amount of vicks under her nose to clear her passages. Animals eat by SMELL one reason kitty wasn't eating. I also used a straw to suck up some water and place in her mouth as she wasn't drinking and I didn't want her to be dehydrated. A straw is something that you can use in a pinch but try not to put it too far in her mouth but you usually have these on hand and so I mentioned this - a turkey baster could be used but a baby medicine dropper would be the best. I placed the straw in a tall glass put my finger on the end and gently placed in the side of kitties mouth. Soon I noticed my cat was recovering fast and I fed her her favorite foods to get her eating and drinking. A bowl of milk and some fish. You can also give your cat vitamin C but I would not recommend this in case your cat has kidney or other problems. Vitamin C should be smashed and a small amount. But I would contact the vet before you do anything!  Don't panic if you cat gets sick  do call your vet asap - Many times the vet  will draw blood - keep your cat overnight and run tests all good things and if you want to KEEP YOUR KITTY I would not self- medicate your cat unless you are in a real bind - weekend, overnight etc.. Animals are not like people and hide their sickness so don't play doctor it just isn't worth it. The cost of a new pet, the tears from a lost pet and of course your pet itself just isn't worth it. So why post this? As I love research I noticed there wasn't a lot of info on this online so I wanted to share this to help with the world of online info and to help those who had concerns - One last comment animals go fast when they are sick and recover fast two things God has instilled in them. I hope this helps someone ;)
