Birthday Angels

If you've visited us this week, you might have already heard us mention that we have a birthday to celebrate today. Indeed, today is the birthday of my dear angel Rosie, whom many of you remember, as well as her angel brother Sammy. My family adopted both of these kitties when I was just 4 years old. Rosie was with me for 21 years, and was still by my side when we started this blog. Her brother Sammy was a wonderful and patient playmate when I was a child. Sadly, he earned his angel wings when he was just 5.

Today, Rosie and Sammy would have been 25 years old. Though I may not be able to celebrate with them in person, I am most certainly doing so in spirit. Happy birthday and much love to you, my sweet angels!

Our Tip of the Day:

I apologize to anyone who does not yet wish to unofficially begin autumn. For me, though, September 1st marks the day when I can really start celebrating my favorite season of the year. That's why, starting today, we'll be doing a series of tips on pet safety during the season of autumn.

Since the fall semester of school is starting up for students, that's what our autumnal tip for today relates to. If any students live in your home with your furbabies, be sure that care is taken to keep your kitties or pups safe from any rampant school supplies. Pens, pencils, erasers, glue sticks, tape, scissors, and any and all sorts of school supplies could potentially pose a risk if left where a furbaby can turn them into a toy or snack. Ingested erasers or other supplies, for example, can result in gastrointestinal upset or even perforated or obstructed bowels. Obviously, this is not ideal, and so school supplies should be tucked safely away, out of reach of cats and dogs. Keep this in mind throughout the school year as well. Backpacks, for example, might contain some of the aforementioned potentially dangerous school supplies, or even lunches or snacks that contain hazardous ingredients. Therefore, again, be sure to keep all such school items well out of reach of your furbaby. What do we always say? It's better to be safe than sorry!

Happy birthday to those Angels. They sure were good kitties and so lucky to have had such a good home.

Happy birthday to your angels, and you are so right about keeping supplies away from pets. On top of the danger, there’s the expense of having to buy those supplies again after having already paid for them once.
