May is National Pet Month

National Pet Month

National Pet Month is a celebration of the benefits that pets bring to people’s lives – and vice versa. It is observed annually in the United States in May and during the month of April in the United Kingdom.

How are you celebrating that special pet in your life? Consider giving him or her the star treatment – fun days at the park or doggie day care, a pampering session with your favorite groomer, and don’t forget getting an amazing portrait done from a skilled photographer! 😉

Friend for your pet day

November 19th is Friend for Your Pet Day

Does your pet have a special friend? Another pet? A favorite plushie? A human? The mailman?

Visit our Facebook page and share your pet with his or her best friend.

Don’t have a picture? Give us a call and let us capture those BFFs 🙂

Below is Seven and Fluffy. Seven ADORED Fluffy and would follow her everywhere. He would give her hugs and kisses. He was fascinated by this small furless cat. They used to have a window in our old apartment that they would hang out together at. Fluffy blessed Seven this once by acknowledging their relationship 🙂

After Fluffy passed, we adopted another dragon. Seven knew it was not his friend. However, he does show River much affection as well.

Adopt a Senior Pet!

November is Adopt a Senior Pet month!

Senior pets are awesome whether they grew old with you or your adopt them in their later years. Senior pets aren’t as active as a puppy and when you adopt an older pet, they really appreciate their new homes.

My cats are all 12 years old and are considered “senior.” However, because they are fed a great diet, get plenty of exercise, and see their vets @ Southtowns Animal Hospital regularly, they are just as frisky and annoying as when we brought them home!

Some great commercial diets for cats and dogs are:

Earthborn
Wellness
Nature’s Variety
Natural Balance

For dogs, I would look for a formula that is low in protein. Protein is the first to aid in weight gain and the hardest to lose. Wellness senior formula is at 18% protein. Also check the fat content.

Cats are little trickier. They need higher amounts of protein as they are pure carnivores. You still want your protein level to be at least 30%. Look for an indoor formula. Indoor formulas take into consideration a less active lifestyle and will help with hairball control. However, check with your vet, as there may be other health issues to consider.

Our cats are not on a senior diet. They eat Earthborn Primitive Feline for dry formula and for wet food, they enjoy Wellness. Wet food in your cat’s diet will help keep your cat hydrated as cats are prone to dehydration. My cats love turkey flavored foods.

Make sure you keep regular visits with your vet. They may recommend supplements to help your pet with their hips and joints. Your pet can suffer from the same ailments as you! Arthritis is very common in older pets. There are many supplements available with glucosamine and chondroitin.

Love your senior pet – the rewards never end!

National Entrepreneurship Month

Amongst many things, November is also National Entrepreneurship Month.

There are many pro’s to working for yourself:

I get to name my own hours. I don’t have to follow someone else’s clock.

Flexibility with said hours. I can change and rearrange my plans.

I don’t worry about travel bans and driving in bad weather.

I get to pursue other income opportunities, such as becoming a Mary Kay independent beauty consultant.

I get to meet all sorts of people and their pets and I get to make them happy!

I get asked to be a pet sitter. I walk dogs and check in on cats, putting me into more contact with pets.

I get to spend time with my own pets more.

I get to see my husband more.

Scooby Dee gets more hugs and kisses.

When my mother was in town, I could spend all my time with her.

Supporting small businesses allows me to be there for my family and to support them. 🙂

You need to play with me!
