Cats Can Be Taught To Come When You Call

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

catcomingSome cats are very independent creatures and need to be taught how to come when called. Some do it by nature. Here are some tips that may help.

1. I always recommend talking to your cat a lot. Call her name in a very calm tone and say kind soothing phrases. Encourage her to come to you. Pet her and brush her frequently.

2. Pick a word such as “snack’ or “Treat” As soon as I say “snack” both my cats come running.

3. Choose a special dry cat treat that she likes. I give my cats a treat every evening. (sometimes I go overboard with the cat treats!)

4. Say the word again when she eats the first piece. Then place another couple of pieces in her dish and say the word once again.

My cats usually  come when I call their name but cats do what they want and if they’re not in the mood or are sleeping in their cozy cat bed, they may not get up just because you’re calling them.

Your Dog Has Ingested Poison

dogpoisonWhen your pet swallows poison, you have to decide whether to treat him at home or make a fast trip to the veterinarian. You shouldn’t make this decision on your own. If he gets off his dog leash while you’re walking him and ingests something dangerous, you may not know unless you actually can see what he ate. If your pet ingests something dangerous, the first thing that you should do is call your vet or the Animal Poison Control center. Tell them what your pet has swallowed, how much and when it happened. They’ll also need to know you pets age, sex and approximate weight. Then follow their instructions to the letter. There’s a chance that they will ask you to induce vomiting in your pet at home using hydrogen peroxide. They might also tell you to go to the veterinarian immediately. If so, hurry, but don’t panic. Take a moment to collect a sample of whatever your pet ate. It may be helpful to the vet. Do not try to administer any pet medication by yourself. You may cause more harm than good.
