1. I'd like to peek into _________'s closet.
(I'm thinking I'm not the only one whose t-shirt collection is mostly related to cats. Right?)
(I rarely have actual plans with others, but when I do, I really don't mind when they're cancelled. Anything that lets me stay home with my furbabies makes me a happy camper. This probably makes me sound incredibly antisocial. And that's probably the truth.)
(I do completely understand that there are certain material items that can have a lot of sentimental value. That said, material items can't offer comfort or support in true times of need. What's more, these material items won't mean a thing when we're taking our last breath. So, I for one try not to let myself even consider shedding a tear over materialistic things. There are far more important things in life.)
(Sometimes I even just get downright hangry.)
Have a fantastic Friday, friends!
Since I seem to live at the vet these days, what with Evan's regular sanitary shaves as well as plenty of other kitties in the house due for their annual exams in the summer, I figured we'd yet again repeat a series of tips on how to get that kitty of yours to the vet. In addition, National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day is coming up this month, so why not. We'll start this series with the simple tip to socialize and get your kitty used to interaction at an early age, if possible. Getting your cat used to people is ideal for helping them cope with future outings to the vet. This of course may not always be possible, depending on a particular cat's age and personality at the time of adoption or rescue. However, when possible and safe, start socializing your cat around people, even simply visitors to your home, when they are young.
What's more, try to get your cat used to hands-on checks. If it's safe for both you and your cat, you can get in the habit of looking in your cat's ears, having a look at their mouth and teeth, and so forth. This of course can help them get used to all that goes on when they're at the vet's office, while at the same time also helping you check for abnormalities that might need to be addressed. All in all, starting early with socializing and hands-on interaction, when it's a safe option, can possibly help your kitty feel more comfortable about getting examined during their trips to the vet.
