Change what you’re doing! It’s mating season

Share Button

    Today I put two and two together, and I had to hustle. It’s mating season for conures. They are hardly even domesticated, and February marks summer in their homelands. Right now my girls are molting and destroying their toys. They don’t breed, but the girls will still lay a clutch to share with […]

Holiday Bonus splurge

I’m pretty new to my store, and I didn’t realize that this would be happening, BUT IT’S SO COOL! We have a wicked good stock of products, so it took me about fifteen minutes to decide. (I’ve been there since November, so did you really think I didn’t window shop at every Shift?) YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTI! Felted. […]

Basepaws Cat DNA Health Report semi-update

Share Button

I got health reports back for Tommy, Stewart, and Princess Yue. Quite a few markers on her sample came back as inconclusive, so I emailed the Basepaws team and they said they would re-run her sample to see if we can get clear results or else we’ll do a new sample. I’ve been at work […]

This is a personal post…sort of pet related. When everything quieted down, I was hired at a pet supply store. Then seasonal depression kicked in around the time change and got progressively worse each week. I am still working, but waiting for my appointment on Wednesday so I can see about med changes through March. […]

What’s got your allergies? The Test

Share Button

“If you didn’t have all those animals in your house, you’d be fine.” Nah. I got proof this month. I had allergy testing done as a child, but the process is a little updated, and there is one big thing I wasn’t aware of: YOU HAVE TO DISCONTINUE ALL ANTIHISTAMINES FOR 1 WEEK However, you […]

Dr. Elsey’s cleanprotein canned varieties

Share Button

I love the cleanprotein concept. Cats are Obligate Carnivores, so instead of going by the simple AAFCO mandates about protein levels in cat food being met, Dr. Elsey’s uses the more digestible animal proteins to attain their protein percentage. I have seen foods use soy and other vegetation to state its a high protein food, […]

Some teeth are better than others

Share Button

I was discussing oral condition with friends last night, and one interjected that his cat is fed a great diet. I said “no, your cat benefits from being genetically superior”. I was able to satisfy his ego without getting into a big discussion. I don’t have time to argue, and you can feel that you […]

Here’s my story: We started using weighted blankets in our home when the tech was new. They made a ‘chhh chhh chhh’ sound when my cat, Princess Yue Pajama Pants, decided this was the […]
