Little Random Pet Tips...

I used to post Pet Tips on my blog
and then I stopped
and I don't really have a good reason why. 
I've decided to start again but this time they are going to be different.
Not your typical tips just little random things that I have discovered.
At least most of the time it will be just little quirky things unless I discover something BIG
that I wasn't aware of BLOAT, which I blogged about HERE
when I was worried about Blue.

So, here's my first little random tip.
When putting a cat in a pet carrier most people tend to try to shove their cats in head first and that can be problematic.
It is usually much easier to put him in butt first.
OR the very EASIEST way is to have one of those soft carriers that unzip on the top.
Then you just plop him/her down and ZIP.
OK, I told you that it would be just a random quirky tip.

Thank you for this simple and very helpful tip....when we are ready to invite another cat into our family we are seeking a kitten from the rescue center. Butt first...who would have thought...something so simple and comfortable for both creatures concerned! Peace little cat mentor! Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

I just bought one of those soft carriers after Angus ripped out his stitches on the door grate of the other carrier. I really like the opening top. It's SO much easier to get them in and out. The down side? The cost. It was really expensive.

Yes, that's the only way to put a cat in a carrier :-)

Have a great day!

That's a very handy tip, and I will remember that! xo

I've also learned to use gravity as your friend when loading a cat into the carrier. Be sure to hold their hind legs together past the opening or they can spread them apart to block the process! Such smart kitties. I still have the hard edged plastic ones. The zippered ones seem MUCH friendlier, but not to the wallet.
