    Its every cat owners dread: letting their kitten outside at night for the first time. Some cat owners prefer to keep cats indoors, in fact many studies have found that indoor cats are healthier and live longer. But some cats cannot be kept in, and many pet owners buckle under the cats cries to be set free. A friend of mine recently had a bit of a scare with her 9 month old kitten, who came back into the house with a nasty gash on his stomach and bite marks on the rest of his body.

    The vets conclusion was that the poor black and white kitten had been attacked by a fox. Hes on the mend now, (taking antibiotics and painkillers, and sporting the dreaded plastic con), but a little shaken up thats for sure.

    Fox Cub Season

    The incident did bring to light an important message that around this time of year, March/April, foxes are rearing their newly born fox cubs.

    Ordinarily, foxes will completely ignore cats and dogs. Foxes avoid dogs, and many foxes are even killed by dogs. Equally, cats and foxes are about the same size, making cats quite capable of defending themselves against foxes. Because of this, foxes generally give cats a wide berth and flee when threatened by a cat.

    Protecting Small Pets

    However, at this time of the year, if they feel their cubs are at threat an attack may occur. With hungry fox cub mouths to feed, foxes are also on an extra vigilant hunt for small animals to prey on: this means Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, and Chickens etc. are even more vulnerable around this time of year.

    If you have a boisterous kitten who does not quite know his/her limits, you may want to consider keeping him indoors for these months until the fox cubs have grown up and moved on.

    If you know you have a lot of foxes in your area, you may want to consider bringing your rabbit/guinea pig hutch indoors to be 100% sure. If this is not an option, it is advisable to invest in a good quality, secure hutch with firm locks. Foxes are quite adept at opening flimsy catches on less secure hutches.

    Scoot Fox Repellent

    In addition, to protect smaller pets such as rabbits and guinea pigs, weve found Scoot Fox Repellent to be the most effective fox repellent on the market. Scoot is a spray that mimics fox scent marking odours to trick foxes into thinking another fox has claimed the area as their territory generally, foxes do not cross other foxes territories – so marking your garden with a fox-like scent can effectively drive foxes away.

    Scoot is a patented non-toxic formula which is totally safe for use in gardens, on plants and edible crops and is humane, bio-degradable and very effective.

    Keep foxes away, and keep your small pets safe.

  • The Frontline For Cats Is Applied On The Cats’ Skin

    Comments Off on The Frontline For Cats Is Applied On The Cats’ Skin
    July 20, 2017 /  Dogs and Cats, Uncategorized

    Fleas are a form of parasite which lives in the fur of animals like dogs and cats which have a thick fur. The fleas live in the fur depending upon the cat for its food and livelihood. Frontline for cats kills and abolishes the fleas within a day or more in cats. As the frontline for cats is applied on the cats’ skin they are completely cured and the cat becomes free of fleas within a day. In some cases frontline for fleas takes 2 days to affect the cats. Once the frontline for cats is applied the fleas are no more there and the cat is free of fleas for more than 3 weeks or even up to a month. The frontline for fleas can be used on kittens as well which are not too old. But the minimum age of the kitten should be more then 8 weeks.

    Moreover the can be equally useful on cats which are pregnant. Another benefit of using the frontline for cats is that it is said to be water proof which makes it applicable on the cats which are outdoor or kept outside the home. These cats are more prone to the dangers of the fleas and the treatment needs to be applied for more than a day. The frontline for fleas should be used on cats after the washing and bathing of cats. The frontline for fleas should be applied to the skin of the cat directly for more than 24 hours. In this interval of 24 hours the pet should be kept away from water or should be kept dry so that the solution affects the cat. Frontline can be used on cats for treating fleas and some other allergies of the cat which are caused by the fleas.

    The main thing is that when frontline is applied on the skin; it will absorb the ingredients fully in its skin thus giving better results. That is why frontline is applied on the skin. After that it saves the cat from fleas. The absorbed part releases in the month gradually preventing the fleas. Thus the frontline is needed to be use for only once a month. And keep the cat dry for a day. After the application of the frontline the more fleas become visible and come at the top. Thus you should not be misled that the fleas are increased and the frontline is not useful.

  • Fun Toys For Dogs – Safe, Interactive And Cheap

    Top dogs deserve safe, fun toys but it is not easy to find toys for dogs that are indestructible and cheap at the same time.

    Unruly behaviour in dogs is often caused by boredom and being left home alone with no fun dogs toys to play with. Every dog needs exercise and mental stimulation. Owners cannot always be on hand to take their dog for a walk or play with them for whatever reason. A few well chosen dogs’ toys is the answer to keep your dog happy and content.

    There are many types of toys for dogs such as tug/pull toys, chew toys, soft toys and interactive toys in all price ranges but you should make certain that any toy you give your dog is safe. Many cheap dogs toys are those that contain little plastic squeakers in them which can really harm your dog and usually a dog will be intent on pulling the squeaker out and do so within ten minutes of having the toy! Vets see more dogs in distress through swallowing small toy parts than any other type of accident. So safety is a big issue when it comes to dog or puppy toys.

    Toys for dogs should be fun and engage your dog in play – interactive dog and puppy toys are a popular good choice as your dog can either play alone with these toys or you can join in too.

    I have an 8yr old westie who loves to play – his favourite dogs toys of all time are his talking babble balls (interactive dog toys) which provide him with hours of fun! We often play together by me chasing Dougs and kicking the talking babble ball across the kitchen floor with him darting around after this toy that keeps coming out with smart little sayings in a really cute voice such as are you ready to go? or youre looking great big doggy! The interactive balls are made of hard plastic and virtually indestructible so they really are good value toys for dogs. Dougie has had at least 6 of these talking babble balls since they came out about 4 yrs ago but now PetQuerks who manufacture the dogs toys have made the latest ones with replaceable batteries making the toy just right. The talking babble balls are very safe for your dog as the battery container is concealed within so that your dog cannot get anywhere near it. This interactive dog toy is safe, fun and indestructible, making ideal puppy toys too. Apparently the toys are also popular with children and cats love the small talking babble ball.

  • Beautiful Ways for Remembering Your Pet

    Comments Off on Beautiful Ways for Remembering Your Pet
    July 19, 2017 /  Pets and Animal, Uncategorized

    Do you, or have you ever had a pet that you have loved as much as family? I remember when I was younger we always had pets. One of the hardest things that I ever had to endure was when one of them had passed away. For our family, we did not have any type of big ceremony when they passed away; we typically buried the animal in our backyard with a homemade cross. This was our way of honoring our pet and it was a means for us to remember them. I remember once, my grandmother had a dog that she loved a great deal. When he passed away, she had him cremated and then buried in a special cemetery for pets.

    Special Pet Jewelry and Urns

    In recent years, I have discovered that there are other, special ways for people to honor their pets. In today’s society, there are a long line of pet urns and jewelry that are on the market. These have been specially created for the storage of the remains of beloved pets that have passed away. The great thing about many of these different urns is that they come available in a broad range of sizes, shapes, and designs. These urns come with accented paw prints or in simple and elegant designs. One of the great things about these urns is that some of them come in shapes, such as hearts, that will make the placement of them on a shelf or a mantle appears as nothing more than just another tchotchke. Other pieces, with more elaborate designs, are very symbolic of the dog or cat that has passed away.

    If you are like my family and me and love your pets, when the time comes for them to pass away it can be a very difficult situation to deal with for your family. You are stuck with the grief of losing a pet that was more like a family member. Depending on your family, and how you want to remember your pets, there are a number of different things that you can do. You can do as my family and I did, and bury your pets in the backyard, or have them entombed at a pet cemetery. If you would rather have a more physical reminder of your pet, then you can look into purchasing a pet urn. There is also the option to get memorial jewelry for your pet, or get pet scattering urns so you can scatter the ashes of your beloved pet in a location that you loved to take them.

  • The Pet Shop Boys Score Exciting Ballet Musical

    July 17, 2017 /  Pet Care and Pet Shop, Uncategorized

    Ballet has been performed for hundreds of years, from the 15th century Italian courts to modern day Africa (the Cape Town City Ballet for example), producing many famous figures including Vaslav Nijinsky and the great impresario Serge Diaghilev. Ballet may give the impression of an art form that survives on tradition, but this is not necessarily true. Serge Diaghilev collaborated with contemporaries like Pablo Picasso and Chanel as did Tchaikovsky when working on Swan Lake, such collaborations aim to treat the audience to a great story and music on stage.

    More recently, the electronic pop duo Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe from ‘The Pet Shop Boys’ (famous for tracks ‘West End Girls’ and ‘Go West’) have worked with Sadler’s Wells Theatre and the award-winning choreographer and director Javier De Frutos to help produce a contemporary ballet. The ballet, titled ‘The Most Incredible Thing’, is based on a Hans Christian Andersen story, originally published in 1870, tells the story of a king who starts a competition to find the most incredible thing.

    The Pet Shop Boys liked the story because it was a fascinating drama and had all the ingredients for a great ballet in the Tchaikovsky mould. The idea took off when they were asked to write a score by The Royal Ballet principal Ivan Putrov, who then introduced them to Sadlers Wells. The result is a track list of 21 pieces of music, that has been divided into three acts in the tradition of classical ballet, featuring 15 dancers and a 26-piece orchestra.

    It is the Pet Shop Boys first foray into ballet, although they had previously written a soundtracks for films created scores for West End musicals. The group feel that writing music for the ballet stage is an positive development, having created elaborate and theatrical music tours of their own. Director Javier De Frutos feels that working on a Hans Christian Andersen story with music by Pet Shop Boys is an irresistible cocktail, although neither of the duo will be donning on in the actual play, it is in keeping with the ballet’s mix of the classical meeting the new. The Most Incredible Thing will be on show at Sadler’s Wells between 17 – 26 March.

  • The Top 10 Most Famous Cats (part 4) Names Beginning With Se To Z

    Comments Off on The Top 10 Most Famous Cats (part 4) Names Beginning With Se To Z
    July 17, 2017 /  Dogs and Cats, Uncategorized

    I’ve been compiling a list of famous cats for my Pet Numerology website for some time now. I know which my favorites are, but I wondered which are the most famous overall. There are so many great famous cats that I’m doing this in four groups, and then I’ll do a final round with the top cats from those groups.

    The most famous cats (based on online chatter) with names starting with the letter Se to Z are:

    10. Willie, who was George Burns’ cat

    9. Skylar, from PC Cast and Kristin Cast’s “House of Night” novels

    8. Si, from the Disney animated movie “Lady and the Tramp”

    7. Toonces (the Driving Cat), from Saturday Night Live

    6. Yum Yum, from Lilian Jackson Braun’s “The Cat Who…” mystery novel series

    5. Spot, Data’s cat on Star Trek the Next Generation

    4. Socks, the Clinton family cat during the Presidency of Bill Clinton

    3. Tigger from A. A. Milne’s Winnie The Pooh

    2. Sylvester from the classic Looney Tunes cartoons

    …and the most famous cat on this list is…

    1. Snowball, the Simpsons family cat from the animated series the Simpsons

    Cats not ranking in the top 10 were Tonto from the movie Harry and Tonto, Sebastian from the animated series Josie and the Pussycats, Tabby who was Abraham Lincoln’s cat, Sid from the Ziggy comic strip, Willamena who was Charles Dickens’ cat, Sybil and Wilberforce who were both British Chief Mousers, and Tiddles who famously lived in London’s Paddington Station.

    So a nice mix of cats from television (Snowball, Toonces, Spot) books (Tigger, Yum Yum, Skylar), animation (Snowball, Sylvester, Si), and even real life (Socks and Willie). This may be the first time two real life cats made it into the top 10, as cats who are famous for who they live with don’t usually score as well as cats famous for being beloved characters.

    I compiled this list by searching for the names listed on a number of search engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos, videos, etc that are available online.

  • Battle Of The Monkey Pajamas

    Monkey pjs are cute, fun, and hot! All at the same time. You may be noticing that numerous people are getting into the monkey pajama frenzy. Even by those who are often too old, stodgy or proper to wear pjs.
    Monkey PJs are not just for kids any more.
    Did you know there are several types of ‘Monkey’ pajamas?
    Sock Monkey Pajamas
    The sock monkey is decades old and very famous. These are the most popular monkey pjs and frequently can be hard to find. These can sell out quickly around Christmas time.
    Anyone can create a sock monkey pajama. But the most celebrated type today are Nick and Nora sock monkey pajamas.
    When one thinks of monkey pajamas this what most folks have in mind.
    Paul Frank PJs
    Paul Frank is a relatively new fashion designer and cartoonist. His well known monkey picture has a monkey with a very wide oval mouth. Not smiling but not frowning either. But it is different and has been licensed for use on many pajamas.
    Paul Frank monkey pajamas are growing in popularity, but long term interest remains to be seen.
    Carters PJs
    Carters has come out with a cute little monkey for a line of pajamas. This is of course directed to the very young.
    Everything Else
    Obviously you do not need to buy or pay for a brand name to get monkey pajamas. There are plenty of fun pajamas with different types of monkeys on them. More are being made all the time. On the other hand, sometimes it is a little more fun to go with branded monkey pajamas because then you have something to relate to with friends and family.
    And frequently it is important to avoid disappointing someone. Especially a young child. If they want monkey sleepwear, and are dreaming of sock monkey pjs, they may not be excited with a generic monkey. You may want a youngster to point out what type of monkey they like so you can be a hero in getting them exactly what they want.
