Your kitty is always so excited to get a little tasty treat, especially when it is human food. There are several foods, though, that your kitty really should stay away from.
Raw Fish – This contains bacteria that can give your cat food poisoning. So keep that sushi on your own plate!
Fat Trimmings – These tasty treats can lead to vomiting and diarrhea for kitty. This is unpleasant for both cat and owner!
Onions and Chives – These foods can break down a cat’s red blood cells and lead to anemia.
Yes! – little bits of canned tuna (too much could give your cat mercury poisoning) and small bits of cheese (too much can give your cat diarrhea) are OK for kitty.

Most cats are love to check out what you are eating. It seems they will eat almost anything in addition to their cat food. It is fun to give them a “special treat.” as it makes us feel happy that they might be happy. However, cats really only need the nourishment that comes from cat food. It is alright to give them human food treats, as long as it’s in moderation.
- Plain Yoghurt – It is not a good idea to give your cat flavored yoghurt because they are unable to digest the fructose sugar that is usually an ingredient.
- Cheese – Avoid soft cheeses, like Brie, but cats do love a good cheddar or even cottage cheese.
- Eggs – It’s not a good idea to give your cat a raw egg, but scrambled or hard-boiled is a tasty treat.
We all know that cats love fish, and canned tuna is a delicacy for them, but be careful not to give them too much fish. Fish is deficient in Vitamin E and cats could develop a condition called “yellow fat disease” if they eat too much human- food fish.

There are several reasons to lead you to buy a pet stroller for your big dog. One reason is that your big dog is older and less mobile. Although these dogs still need their exercise, they may only be able to run or walk short distances before needing a break.
A second reason is an injury to your big dog. This is surely a temporary set back, but a pet stroller can be part of the rehabilitation program for your dog. Enjoying the outdoors is a much better option than lying in the house for 6-8 weeks.
A third reason is that you, the owner, are getting older, have an injury, or had surgery. Walking your big dog on a leash might not be feasible for long periods and a pet stroller will ease the strain.
Dogs enjoy the outdoor experience, and there is nothing better than spending time outside as long as possible. A pet stroller will give your big dog a break, or you, while you keep on moving.

So much pet hair and so little time and energy to clean it all! Whether you brush your dog or pet your cat, pet hair seems to float around everywhere. There are several alternative uses for pet hair that will do some good for you around your home:
- Put the fur around your plants. Pet hair contains a lot of nitrogen and helps to create thriving healthy plants. It does take a while for the nitrogen to be released, however, do don’t expect miracles in the first season. The fur also stops snails and slugs from munching on the leaves.
- Toss your pet hair in the compost pile. Again, it takes awhile for the fur to break down, but mixed with other organic material, it will add some healthy goodness to your plants.
- Leave small piles of pet fur outside, perhaps on top of or underneath shrubs. The birds will find it and use it to build their nests. This will certainly make the birds happy!

You stare deep into his eyes looking for a sign that he loves you. He probably doesn’t maintain eye contact for very long, but you still feel a deep connection with your beloved dog.
There are many studies that examined how to determine whether your dog loves you. One looked at the hormone oxytocin, which is connected to maternal bonds and strong social attachments. Oxytocin levels increased in both humans and dogs after ten minutes of friendly social contact, suggesting mutual love.
Another study looked at the brain activity in dogs when familiar scents were introduced to them. When a dog smelled their owner, their brain activity was similar to that of humans when they were shown pictures of people they love.
It seems safe to assume that your dog will show you love in many different ways. Some dogs give a full body tail wag when they see you, some lick and lick and lick you. Many dogs like to cuddle on your lap, or inside your legs. We will never know exactly what our dogs are thinking, but they surely love us as much as we love them!

Without thinking about it, most of us likely top off our pet’s water bowl, rather than empty and refill it with fresh water. The problem with doing this is that bacteria has a chance to grow in the stagnant water, making it unhealthy for your beloved pet to drink. So, always empty your pet’s bowl, clean it, and then refill it with fresh water. Some people advocate for the continuous water flow bowls. This makes sure the water does not stagnate.
Another issue is the type of bowl you use. It is wise to use a metal bowl instead of plastic. Plastic bowls develop scratches and harmful bacteria may live in the scratches. Dogs and cats like to drink all through the day. It is really important that they have a reliable supply!

Even though cats often appear to be spectacularly aloof, they are very happy and content when you pet them in certain spots. A cat has scent glands located in the mouth, on the top of the head, at the base of the tail and in the paw pads. We often see cats rubbing their faces or heads on the sides of furniture or doorways in an effort to leave their scent.
Cats generally enjoy being petted in the spots where there are scent glands because you are actually helping to spread the scent around. So, the best spots to pet a cat include:
- Behind the ears
- The base of the tail
- Top of the head
- Under the chin
- Cheeks, behind the whiskers
Most cats are not too happy when you pet them on the belly. This is instinctual. In the wild, cats are very aware that the belly needs to be protected from predators. All vital organs are located in the belly region and it is a priority to protect it. Some cats may get used to being pet on the stomach, but it is not the so-called sweet spot.

In the wild, cats demonstrate many behaviors that we might not expect to see in a domesticated cat. However, our special felines rely on instincts regardless of where they live. Kneading is one of those behaviors we often look at and wonder what it is that leads them to do this.
In the wild, cats might knead to create a bed for themselves and their family. They push down branches and grass to create a comfortable resting spot. Pet cats may also be doing this, but they are more likely just looking for a nice resting spot on your belly.
When kittens knead, they are often trying to get more milk out of their mothers. By pushing the mother’s belly, they can generate more milk for themselves.
Some people say cats knead areas they wish to mark with their scent. There are scent glands in their paw pads. Female cats may knead before they go into “heat” to tell the males in the area that they are available.
Domesticated cats are social and they may be kneading to tell the people in the house that they trust them and feel safe. Kneading is a natural and instinctual behavior. Not every cat kneads, but it is a very common behavior.

Is there anything cats won’t climb? Young cats especially love to see how high they can get to spy on the household. Your older cat may not be as interested in getting into the mess of branches and ornaments.
I have recently been told that cats do not like citrus at all. Citrus zest sachets are one decorative way to deter kitty from climbing on the tree. Another simpler method is to place orange, lime or lemon peels all around the bottom of your tree.
It is also wise to secure the tree from tipping or to put your cat in another room when you can’t supervise tree scaling attempts. Citrus is apparently fool-proof. So far, so good…
