I love the holidays and my pets generally love them too. My cats like to climb my Christmas tree, the dogs like to convince unsuspecting guests that they’re starving, and both enjoy sniffing out the gifts under the tree. Unfortunately the holidays can also be dangerous and stressful for some pets. I’m sharing a few tips today to make the holidays safer for your pets.

Three Great Products For Cat Owners

Three Great Products for Cat Owners post is sponsored by Single Edition Media on behalf of Ceva Cat.

I’ve owned a dog most of my life, but it wasn’t until I was in my my 30’s that we acquired our first cat. The past few years have been a learning experience for me. I thought that most of my worries would be which food to buy or how often to clean a litter box, but I quickly realized that was just the basics of cat ownership. Cats are much quieter (or least most of the time) and agile than dogs, so I struggled with keeping them off countertops, kitchen tables and other forbidden areas. I was perplexed when our indoor only cats suddenly had fleas; how does an indoor cat contract fleas? Today I’m sharing three great products for cat owners and a few of my woes as a relatively new cat owner.

Free Cat Printables & Tips For Caring For Multiple Cats #Unsmellable #FreshStepFebreze

Before I met Jeremy I never imagined owning one cat, but now I own three. All three cats have a unique story and very different personalities. They’re bossy and demanding, but it would be hard to imagine our house without them. I enjoy taking random photos that capture their personalities and display them around our home, and occasionally I’ll throw in some whimsical cat decor. I created three free cat printables that can be easily printed and displayed. I think each represents a personality trait of one of our lovable cats, and maybe reminds you of one of your cats, too (I’m assuming if you’re reading this post, you have a cat or generally love cats).

How To Build A Cat Tower With Optional Upholstered Beds

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MyPetMyStar #CollectiveBias

Our household is bossed around by three lovable cats: Leo, Tucker, and Freckles (aka Little Cat). They’re as cute as they are mischievous, and each has a very different personality. The one trait they have in common is their love of windows. They’re kind enough to “relocate” items to the floor when something obstructs their window view. Jeremy decided it would be nice to build them a cat tower to make it easier for them to look out the window, and it might help keep our stuff safer. I hope you find this tutorial for how to build a cat tower helpful, and leave a comment or email me if you have any questions.

I get a nauseated feeling when I think about parasites. We have two dogs and three cats who live inside our home, so parasite prevention is very important. If one pet contracts a parasite, all of our pets are at risk. My son who is 6 years old, constantly has one of the dogs or cats in his arms. I certainly don’t want to risk him contracting a parasite either. So, how do dogs contract tapeworms?

Socializing a new puppy or dog should be high on your priority list when obtaining a new pet, right along with vaccinations, routine veterinary care, and heartworm prevention. Unfortunately puppy socialization isn’t highly prioritized by many first time pet owners, which can lead to serious behavior problems later. Did you ever stop think how your pet my react if there was an emergency at your home? How would your pet react if someone had to retrieve them from your home or care for them while you were unable to? Most pets would be understandably upset, but would your pet overreact? We live in a rural community with little access to group obedience classes, fortunately I’ve obedience trained more than one dog. You don’t necessarily need a formal group obedience class, but they can be a great asset when socializing a new pet. Maybe you already realize the importance of proper socialization, but you’re not sure where or how to begin? Today I’m sharing my best tips for how to socialize your dog, that could make living with them much easier and more enjoyable.
