Leaving Your Cat Alone

catsitterhomeYou have no choice but you have to leave town on business and must leave your beloved cat at home. This always made me a little nervous. Cats are independent but they do get lonely. Here’s what I would recommend. Cats are most comfortable in their own environment and if you could get someone that is reliable and likes pets to stay with your cat, that would be perfect. If you can’t, the second best choice is to get a reliable friend or neighbor to look in on your cat every day. It is important that someone be there at some point each day while you’re away.

Write down specific instructions for the pet sitter. This should include the time, amount and type of cat food that is fed. Make sure that their water bowl is filled at all times. I would have them fill two or three large bowls of water. Make sure that the sitter knows where everything is located.

It is important to provide the sitter important phone numbers, like your number, your vets name and number as well as the local police and fire department.

Finally, your cat does need affection. Make sure that the sitter is comfortable petting and playing with your cat. Leave lots of cat toys around for your cat to play with. I would ask the sitter to play will your cat a little each day. Before you know it, you’ll be back home with your pet.

Remember, your pets count!

Cat Food for a Diabetic Cat

Monday, June 20, 2016

cateatWhen your cat has diabetes, she’s prone to large peaks and valleys in her blood glucose level. This is a situation that you need to monitor carefully. Steven Carone, who is a Veterinarian with Nestle, Purina Pet Care Company says that in recent years nutritionists have discovered that the right diet can help to regular a diabetic cat’s blood glucose levels. The proper cat food is key. Reducing the amount of carbohydrates and increasing their protein intake will help to manage diabetes. Reducing the amount of carbohydrates can help to blunt the cats glucose curve and can have a positive effect on a cat’s long term health. Some cats actually go off insulin when they are put on a high protein, carb. restrictive kind of diet. Your vet will guide you as to the proper cat food that contains the correct balance of carbs and protein. Even cats that still need insulin, often require less. Always check the carb and protein levels of your cats food and cat treats.
