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.

Many Purrs and Love Swats,

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.

Many snuggles and furry foot pats,

P.S. 7 days to go!

Feline Fill-in Friday

Fill-in Friday

Lets play with the Fill-in’s first for today. Miss Ellen from 15andmeowing came up with the first two and Miss Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. One word to describe my week is happy and fun.

2. My biggest success has been playing with the new toys from mom.

3. Not to brag, but I am probably the best looking ginger cat ever. (You guys can probably guess who wanted to fill out this one huh? MOL)

4. For me, naps and cuddles is the meaning of life.

Feline Friday

Next up on our hop is Feline Friday from Comedy-plus. For Feline Friday we’re just supposed to post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat. That’s definitely something we can do.

Mom got us a new fishing toy! She actually got two but she put one aside for later because she says we’ll break this one probably fast

Lilah really love the little yellow snake!

Even Azrael got into the play.

And Gabriel too but don’t tell anyone he is kind of self conscious.about acting like a kitten.

Mom put feathers on it and Balthazar and I decided we wanted to play with the feathers. We don’t really like the little snake toy.

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! Shabbat Shalom (a little early but that’s ok!)

Many face paps,

Valkyrie
