Keep your cats and other pets indoors during hot weather. In a nice cool a/c and with lots of water.

Note: Many cats are lactose-intolerant, which means that they cannot digest cow's milk properly and they get diarrhea or gastric upset when they drink it.

According to the ASPCA, "Unless they are spoiled or moldy, milk, cheese and other dairy foods are not considered to be poisonous to pets. However, many pets’ digestive systems cannot tolerate dairy foods very well. This can result in vomiting and diarrhea, which in severe cases could lead to inflammation of the pancreas. For this reason, it’s always a good idea to check with your veterinarian before offering any “people food” to your pets."

By Jani No Heart

If beloved felines are part of your family, naturally you want to reward them with an occasional treat. The store shelves are full of different sizes, shapes and flavors, yet after reading labels, some pet  owners worry that the grade of ingredients in them is less than desirable. You don't have to sacrifice quality for convenience. Cat treat recipes  are plentiful online, and since you control what goes into them, you can be assured that Fifi is snacking on something fresh and nutritious. As an added bonus, you may even save a few pennies by making them yourself.

Instructions
Things You'll Need:
Liver-Loving Cat Cookies:
1/2 cup dry milk, cow or goat
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 tsp. honey
1/4 cup of pureed raw liver
Blender
Bowl
Mixing spoon
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons
Cookie sheet
Airrtight storage container
Tuna Patties with Tuna Pops:
6 oz. tuna packed in spring water
1/2 cup cooked, brown or white rice
1/4 cup pureed raw liver
2 to 3 sprigs parsley, chopped
Blender
Bowl
Mixing spoon
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons
Plastic pill container
Airtight storage container
Liver-Loving Cat Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine dry milk with wheat germ. Add honey and pureed liver to dry ingredients and mix well.

Use hands to roll mixture into petite-size balls no bigger than a marble, and place on a well-greased or nonstick ,coated cookie sheet. Flatten each one with the back of a spoon.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Consistency will be like fudge.

Refrigerate in an airtight container, or store in the freezer if keeping them for more than several days.
Tuna Patties with Tuna Pops

Drain the tuna and set aside the liquid, which you'll use for the tuna pops.

Mix tuna with rice, pureed liver and parsley.

Divide mixture into 8 equal portions, shape into balls and flatten them into patties.

Refrigerate in an airtight container and serve as individual snacks.

Pour drained liquid into a small plastic pill organizer with dividers and freeze. When ready to serve, remove a tuna pop by twisting and pressing on the organizer as you would an ice tray. Place in a bowl so your cat can lick it.

I have a question: When you have severe weather in the area but cannot be at home what do you do to keep your kitties safe?
14  All About Cats / Cats Rainbow Bridge / Bridge Thoughts on: February 28, 2011, 10:46:30 am
Compared to humans, cats live relatively short lives. While these special companions are in our lives, we do our best to provide them with love, and with care. Sometimes, under the best circumstances, and sometimes under the worst, they are snatched away from us and leave us broken and confused and very sad. It takes time, after someone’s cat dies, for that owner to have the courage to land here in this forum section. When they do come here, I applaud them, for it means the healing can finally begin.

For some cat lovers, they cannot even come here to read, because the sorrow is to great, the grief is to overwhelming, or they have been one of the fortunate few who have not had to make that tough decision, sign that final paper- shed the first tears of many to come, and return home with empty arms.

The poem Rainbow Bridge that says author unknown- the author is known. He is grief counselor, and he used to live in Portland Oregon. His name is Paul C. Dahm and he wrote the poem after his own pet died, so he could find his way through the sorrow and emerge somewhere whole on the other side.

Those of you, who are brave enough to post here, are on your way to finding that other side of the grief. The path is not easy for you, it is not a short walk and you will discover inner truths along the way if you do not shut down your heart.

The food bowl may be empty, and your bed may be missing that furry lump snuggled next to you- but in your heart, that special cat will ride the time with you, until one day the remembrance no longer brings with it the lump in the throat or the tears and instead you will count yourself lucky to have been blessed and bonded with such a companion as the one that enriched your life enough that you sought to leave his/her memory in Crossing The Bridge~ a very special place.
15  All About Cats / Cats Rainbow Bridge / Rainbow Bridge Poem on: February 28, 2011, 10:41:46 am
There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge, there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass. When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place.

There is always food and water, and warm Spring weather. Those old and frail animals are young again. Those who have been maimed are made whole again.

They play all day with each other. But there is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up. The nose twitches, the ears are up, the eyes are staring, and this one suddenly runs from the group.

You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.
