World Spay Day 2016

Hello everyone! Did you know that today is World Spay Day? 

Launched in 1955, World Spay Day is an annual campaign that encourages people to save animals' lives by spaying and neutering their pets and ferals.   Spaying and neutering saves lives by keeping animals out of shelters – shelters that are often overcrowded and don’t have resources to provide care or find home for all of them.  You know what that means…euthanasia.  According to World Spay Day.org, an estimated 2.4 million animals are put down in shelters each year.  That’s one animal every 13 seconds – cats and dogs who are healthy, treatable, sweet, and would make great companions.    

There are many benefits to having your pet spayed/neutered.  Spaying your female pet early in life can help protect them from some serious health problems later in life such as uterine infections and breast cancer. Neutering your male pet can also lessen its risk of developing benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate gland) and testicular cancer. Having ferals spayed/neutered through TNR can reduce the number of cats in your local colonies. Life on the streets for a cat can be rough for a cat, and when a feral finds their way into a shelter, if often does not end favorably.

It's Love Your Pet Day!

Hello and happy Caturday! Did you know that today is Love Your Pet Day? When Lexy and I were meowing about what to post for this day, we decided on something cool.  We polled some of our Facebook friends and asked them how they know their humans love them.  This is what they had to say: 

Since I have lost most of my hearing due to old age, when my mother sees me drinking from the water bowl in the kitchen, she will avoid going in there so she doesn't startle me. - Minnie Pearl

My mom brings a can of whipped cream home and gives me a little bit with my wet food! - Gus

Sun Puddle Sillies

Hello and happy Thursday Purrsday! Today I'm sharing a little video that Mommy took of me. This Valentine's Day it was a chilly -1 degrees Fahrenheit. That's cold! I found a sun puddle to warm my belly, and I got a little silly.  It was so warm and it felt so good, I lost myself. If you can't view it below, you can view it on YouTube here

Do you get silly in a sun puddle?

Save Your Cat's Teeth! It's National Pet Dental Health Month.

February is National Pet Dental Health Month

Dental disease is the most common disease seen in pets. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA),  80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by the age of three. Proper dental care can detect dental disease that not only affects the mouth, but can also lead to more serious health problems such as heart, lung, and kidney disease.

Morris The Cat's Tips for Getting Better Sleep - Part 1

Hello and happy Wedesday! Today I’m going to talk to you all about sleep! That’s right, S-L-E-E-P. And nobody knows sleep like a kitty. 

Lexy and I are  always trying to get more of it and make the most out of what little time we do get. 

So Lexy and I were meowing, and we thought, why not ask someone who's truly an expert on the subject to do a guest post; someone who spends more time snoozing than most of us spend at work? Can you guess who we thought of? I'm talking, of course, about Morris the Cat. 

For those of you who don't know him – or who've let sleep deprivation cloud your memory – Morris is the iconic spokescat for 9Lives cat food and has starred in over 50 commercials. When he's not in front of the camera or chowing down on 9Lives, you can bet he's napping in his trailer, ahem carrying case.+=

We’re so excited that Morris taken time out of his busy schedule to answer some human's questions about the very im-purr-tant issue of sleep. What's more, he's offering fans the chance to win a Morris-shaped, human-sized plush bed AND a year's supply of 9Lives cat food. Just go to his Live Well & Prospurr website to enter.
