So many gorgeous cats were in my care this past week. 4 Tuxedoes, a calico, a brown tabby, a stunning grey, orange tabbies, orange & whites and a grey and white domestic short-hair. I've been on the road most of the weekend but lovin' every minute of it.
LuckyIf I remember correctly, I wanted this job when I was a kid. I knew I loved cats and I wanted to work with them.

'Work' is an odd word to use here but it is a business, afterall. Here I am, a grand-mother for goodness sake, doing just that. Life's funny sometimes.

These were my kitty clients this past weekend.
It's time to get ready for the war on fleas. If your cats are indoor/outdoor (some of ours are) then checking them everyday with a flea comb is necessary. There are many products you can buy from your vet but know that they all contain very strong chemicals. I try to stay away from that along with flea collars and flea powder. Both can make some cats very ill. I know if I put any of these products on my geriatric cats they will keel over dead. Younger cats (not kittens) seem to tolerate the treatments so if the natural way doesn't work then I suggest you talk to your vet. If you want to go the natural way you can add 1/4 tsp of brewers yeast to your cats' soft food a few times a week. Also, make a lemon spray. Equal parts lemon juice & water. Put this in a spray bottle and spray your cat's coat before it goes outside (every 3rd day). If they are afraid of the spray bottle you can sponge the mixture on their coat. Make no mind of the looks you get...they'll be happy to be flea-free. Always comb your cat with the proper flea comb which can be purchased at any pet store.
Just wanted to show you our screened-in porch at night.
