The other day a customer emailed to say that she always trusts my opinion (aw, shucks!) and wanted to know if I had a favorite cat water fountain. I told her that I do not, but that it would be fun for us both to check Etsy, eBay, and other online sources as well as the local pet shops to see what creative and pretty options exist. I did caution her to not buy a plastic one. Plastic is bad for many reasons including that it can cause “rodent ulcers” on a cat’s lips. Also, it’s very hard to clean plastic and remove it of bio films which are the saliva slime that accumulates, and which harbors ..read more

We people know that chilly weather makes us hungry for more food. This time of year we begin to crave roasted vegetables and meats, and we hunt for new recipes for stews and soups. Hot food warms our bones and hearts! Often we don’t realize that our cats respond to weather changes like we do. During Summer while we are eating salad our carnivore friends might leave food behind in the bowl. But in Winter the bowl is licked clean and they meow for more. How much more? A study that we found told us that in Winter cats will eat about 15% more food than during the rest of the year. Be a rock star ..read more

Anti Icky Poo to de-skunk your cat, you, or your dog. Plus, cats and skunks – many similarities.

As FOS (Friends of Skunks), we want to help you get skunk spray out of fur and clothing, plus help you understand and love skunks as much as we do! Skunks are very shy and very passive. Like cats, they are curious. They don’t seek to spray anyone and only do so when provoked or frightened and as truly a last resort if they fear they will be killed. Heed their warning and back off. As solitary animals they prefer peacefully going about the business which is keeping your garden free of small rodents. Skunks love to eat ticks and other harmful insects. They eat worms and grub worms in your soil ..read more

While we are not veterinarians and never pretend to be, we’d like to share something that one of our veterinarians told us about for this rather common problem known as Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Our dear cat Madeline was flip flopping between the two conditions. Her digestion was never good, possibly from having been an abused young cat before she found us. When she was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome our vet told us about Psyllium Husk Powder which has been a miracle. Whatever the cause of your cat’s pooping woes Organic Psyllium Husk Powder may help your cat as it did for our Madelin ..read more

I’ve been feeling like a housecat all these months since March with a shrinking territory! Being housebound makes me wonder if our housecats are ever bored. Every day before I arise, I think of how during the day I will alleviate my boredom and anxiety which is important for robust health. I ask myself “What am I looking forward to today.” Then I think about new, enriching, and interesting acts of love for myself, my husband, my cats and bunnies, and for Cat Faeries. I think of how I can create beauty, excitement and happiness. All these ideas and daily plans circle back to me which give me pl ..read more
