Not very Wordless Wednesday

I’m sharing today with Raziel as mom said she still doesn’t know where to stick him in the week. Maybe he’ll just show up here and there as long as you all don’t mind our days thrown off a little. Mom said he does silly things. I napped near him today and didn’t hiss or fight him.

Lilah is still working on getting better. Mom got us cat milk and Lilah is having plenty of pees in the litter box. Dehydration is very scary in cats but there are ways to know if we’re getting enough liquid, even when we are sick.

How to spot dehydration in cats:

Litter Box Habits:
Kitties should go pee 2-4 times a day, this is of course impacted by hydration, head, and humidity. But 2-4 is a good number if you are counting potties for dehydration.

Skin Tenting:
There is something called tenting. Skin Tenting is a good way to check hydration in cats. To do this, take a pinch of skin around her shoulders and gently pull it up – if she is adequately hydrated it should ping straight back into place. If she is dehydrated, then her skin will return to position more slowly. (It will stay up like a tent)

Gum Stickiness:
Lift your kitties lips and feel her gums. The gums should be pink and moist. When you put your finger against the gums if they feel sticky your kitty is dehydrated.

These tips are also good for doggies! Make sure your furry friends have fresh clean drinking water around the clock. Some cats drink better with fountains. If you are concerned your kitty isn’t getting enough water you can also add more water to their wet food if they get it.

During illness you can also add things to their diet like cat milk to try and entice them to drink more. Dehydration can be very bad for kitties so make sure to watch your friends.

Wordless Wednesday (mostly)

We just want to take a moment to remind everyone that we love you all. Mom made a new page in memory of all the blogger kitties (and doggies) that have cross to the rainbow bridge. You can click it above and each picture has a link to the blog of that angel.

P.S. 7 days to go!

Happy Tabby Tuesday!

Here’s Miss Kyrie after mom brushed and brushed her. Sometimes mom has a hard time brushing (or petting Kyrie) because she likes to smack you if you don’t pet her right. Or if you stop petting her to get a knot? She’ll hit you! With her sharps out! So you have to pet her and brush her at the same time. She does roll over and let you brush the knots on her tummy if you get her when she’s sleepy. Mom grooms the girls daily because they have long hair. But us boys don’t need as much brushing so she just brushes us every week or so.

We have a big big surprise coming soon but mom says we have to keep it a surprise. It’s so hard. We’re really bad at surprises. Gabriel’s 10th birthday is coming up too but that’s not the surprise. It’s going to be very exciting you guys.

Let’s post a pic of the soon to be birthday boy too since it’s Tabby Tuesday!

Sparks

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

Life is hard for a lot of people right now. So we think this quote is really a good one for this week.

Sparks was originally a blog hop, made by Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Annie is on a blogging break but a lot of us continue this in honor of her Vision which was to be a light for the coming week.
