Just like Children, not all pets like to just eat what we give them.

So to try to help make things a little easier for you here are some tips.

  1. If you’re giving medication with food, Do it when the animal is hungry and only give them a very small amount, make sure they have eaten it all before giving them the rest of their meal. Do not let them see you putting medication in their food.
  2. So your cat doesn’t eat medication with food? ok with two people, while one of you hold the cats front legs … so you don’t get scratched the other person can then pop the tablet into the cats  mouth, Don’t let them go untill he’s licked his lips.
  3. That didn’t work? Guess you have a fighter… again with two people try wrapping him in a towel… the cat that is….  🙂  leaving the head out, again one of you hold the cat and the other pop the tablet into the cats mouth.
  4. Ok so now you have holes in your arms face and fingers, But has the cat taken the tablet ? next time try using a pill popper or get someone else to do it.

 This bit of information was brought to you by Rachael Seymour from Whangarei Cattery The Deloraine don’t forget it’s the only place your cat should stay while you’re away.

Here is an interesting little fact……
New Zealand has one of the highest rates of cat ownership in the world. Cats are the most commonly owned companion animal, with an approx 1,500,000 kept as loved and loving companions.
If you are one of those owners…. keep up the good work with the care of your feline friend(s).
Remember if going away you should avoid risking leaving your cat home alone! Book it into your local cattery and be sure it is safe and cared for while you are away.

Hey it's me!! Here I am!!!!

What’s the most unlikely place that you have found your cat hiding in, maybe they just decided to have a snooze there?? Tell us about it!

This morning I found Zues in my 4wd! Yep, last night when I got home I left the back door of the vehicle open while I unloaded some things. While chatting to Rach the silver rascal sneeked into the Isuzu for a nosey…. well all fool him, I came back got the last lot of stuff out and …. yep you got it … I shut the door and poor Zues ended up sleeping in the Isuzu all night!
Lucky for me he waited to do his “business” until he was let out this morning!!

The biggest problem with kittens is that they eventually grow up to become cats.
It needs to be remembered that having a pet (be it a cat or otherwise) is for a long term period not just for christmas.
The cat is the most popular Kiwi pet and this is for good reason. Generally speaking they are cheap to feed and easy to own. Cats easily adapt to the area they are living in, whether it be an apartment in the city or out on the farm.
Owning a cat will quite often mean you will be on it’s “staff” for somewhere between 14 – 20 years! So think about this when taking on kittens because being responsible for your cat will mean regular vet visits and ongoing flea treatments and much more. When travelling, you will need to arrange to board your cat(s) in a quality cattery to ensure they are safe while you enjoy a break away.
However, in the long run cats will bring much joy and company to any home.
