Cats and Aquariums

cattankYou have a glass aquarium filled with beautiful fish. You’re not the only one who likes fish. Your cat is anxiously watching all of those fish quickly dart around that beautiful glass aquarium on the fancy aquarium stand in the corner of your family room.  If your cat has the opportunity to jump on the fish tank, he’ll get curious and start playing in the water. My cat Millie had a routine every evening where she would jump on the tank and splash the water all over the place. I would firmly tell her to get down, she would obey but just a for a few minutes. Just as I would fall back to sleep, there it was again, the splashing and water all over the place. I finally had to tape the cover down. Millie was always smart enough to lift the cover. Taping the cover solved the problem but the top of the aquarium looked like an eye sore!

Remember, your pets count!

Pet Community Blood Donors

DOGDONORYou’ve just left on a trip and your dog is in the back of his dog crate. You stop in a parking lot and open the back hatch where your dog is. He gets out of his dog crate, jumps out of the car and gets hit by another car as he’s running across the street. You call your the nearest animal hospital who dispatches help immediately. Your dog is injuried but is awake and seems to be alert. He is bleeding from his leg. At the animal hosiptal your vet says that your dog will be OK but he needs blood. Where does the new blood come from? Beth Davidow of the Animal Critical Care and Blood Bank in Seattle says that most of it comes from healthy pets whose owners get them involved as community blood donors. She says that many pet owners are committed to making sure that another animal in need has blood if they need it. To become a donor, a dog must be free of diseases, not on any medication and is willing to lie still for treats while it’s blood is drawn. Cats can donate to, but must be anestitized. If you want your vet to extend a helping paw to another animal in need, you can ask your vet to help you find a program in your area.
