cat being groomed

Tips for grooming your cat.

Cats are well known for their abilities to self-groom, but this doesn't mean your feline friend won't need a hand from time to time. A well-groomed cat is a happy cat (not to mention a cat with less risk of bad health and illness), plus grooming can often be an opportunity to bond with your pet.

1. Start the process early

It's best to start the grooming process while your cat is still an impressionable kitten, so he or she becomes used to a good grooming routine. A cat accustomed to being groomed from kitten days will be far more accepting as an adult.

2. Brush regularly

Perhaps the most important part of cat grooming is taking care of its fur - particularly in the case of long-haired cats. Short-haired cats only need to be brushed once a week, but long-haired kitties need more regular brushing (sometimes even as much as once per day). Brushing with metal and rubber brushes and combs helps keep your cat's fur in good condition by getting rid of dirt, spreading natural oils and preventing nasty knots.

3. Don't be afraid of bath time

It's a well-known fact that most cats are averse to bathing. Though most don't need to have regular big baths, sometimes it is necessary. Make the experience more enjoyable by making sure the water is warm (not too hot or cold), using a recommended cat shampoo and by avoiding your cat's eyes and ears as you carefully bathe them in a sink or tub.

4. Cats can have mani-pedis too

Most domestic cats need their claws trimmed at some stage and, if you can get them used to it from an early age, the process hopefully won't cause too much trouble. Try to touch your cat's paws regularly, so they become used to you handling the area. When you get around to trimming their claws, use a quality, sharp clipper (or nail scissors) designed specifically for cats - no human tools! - and be careful to avoid the skin.

5. Know when it's time to bring in the professionals

Some cats are more difficult than others when it comes to grooming. If your cat is being particularly resistant, you may have to bring him or her to a vet to seek advice. Cats with particularly matted coats may also require sedation to fix all the tangles and knots.

voldemort cat

Do you see the Voldemort?

Us humans have a knack for seeing faces where there really shouldn't be faces.

Whether it's seeing Jesus in a tree stump or the Queen's face in a baby scan, our brains can play tricks on us in the strangest ways.

But even the most skeptical of people must admit that this face-on-a-cat-bum is pretty weird.
The image was uploaded to Imgur by the cat's owners yesterday, along with the caption: "Our hairless cat has a face on her butt."

Although the owners didn't see the resemblance to Voldemort initially, it was pointed out by several amused commentators.

One said: "When Voldemort gave up his human form, he had few choices left for the shredded remains of his final horcrux soul fragment. He looks glum."

Another commented: "Voldemort is getting desperate these days, I see."

More people still were more disturbed by the fact that its tail looked like a tongue, with one saying: "That "tail-tongue" is freaking me the f*** out."

Mewsings: May 12, 2015 - "A cat's behavior is a direct reflection of his feelings." - Carole Wilbourn

hills pet food recall

Hill's pet food recall (UK)

Hill’s Pet Nutrition has recalled cat food pouches after they were found to contain vomit inducing levels of iron.

The major pet nutrition firm said certain packs of its chicken and fish cat food pouches contain a large amount of iron, which can cause digestive upset, including vomited and diarrhoea.
The feline food was pumped full of iron in error by an ingredient supplier.

The Food Standards Agency are urging pet owners not to feed their cats the foodstuff but instead return it to their nearest store for a full refund.

Owners who have already fed it to their cat should consult a vet, they said.

In a statement, Hill's nutrition said: "Hill’s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling specific manufacturing batches of the singleserving cat food pouches identified by date codes listed below.

"Due to an error by an ingredient supplier, the products contain high levels of iron.

"The issue in the United Kingdom is limited to the products and date codes listed."

The statement continued: "No other date codes of these product or other Hill’s products in the United Kingdom are affected by the recall.

"The recalled products should have been removed from store shelves so that what is currently available on shelf is safe to feed as intended.”

"At Hill’s we take great pride in the quality and safety of our pet food products.

"We deeply regret this situation occurred and can assure you that we are working with our suppliers to further improve product safety procedures and prevent a similar mistake from happening again."

The dodgy pet food item comes in an 85g size and the latest use by date is October 2017.

No other Hill’s Pet Nutrition products are known to be affected."
