I need to tell you about how a parrot named “Ted” saved the life of a little girl’s pet iguana. I hear you! What a creepy, icky, scaly creature to call a “pet.”

Anyway, back to Ted. Our erstwhile head pet sitter - Karina - paid her usual daily visit to Ted and his cockatoo companion “Snowy” as well as the aforesaid iguana named “Pepper.” Karina’s usual MO was to unlock the front door, disarm the alarm, and start her duties in the back of the house where Pepper resides in an aquarium.

Hot Weather Hints for Pet Owners

I don’t have to tell you that it’s hot outside…but IT IS ABNORMALLY HOT OUTSIDE THIS SUMMER! Why is this important to us canines? For starters your toes, pads, and paws get sizzling hot when your master/mistress takes you for a walk on those 130-degree sidewalks!

Is the situation unavoidable? Nope! One strategy is to suggest to your master/mistress to just run you out to the yard to pee and poop, then dash back inside to the refreshing A/C so you can plop down on a tile floor after taking a big drink of ice cold water. Now you’re ready for that hard-earned nap!

Welcome to my blog! I am the voice of all things feline and thought we could start off with how to endure the many nuisances of summer: fleas, flies, spiders, mosquitos, dehydration, heat exhaustion, pygmy rattlesnakes, and thunderstorms.

I didn’t include geckos on the list because chasing them is the only form of exercise available to us house-bound kitties. In addition to the nuisance factors listed above there are the very dangerous outdoor threats posed by half-a-dozen or so opportunistic predators. Who are these predators? I’m so happy you asked!

Dear Fellow Felines:

I’m still being a really bad girl. I’ve managed to stay away from the stove after my touch-and-go paw-burning incident of last month, but I’m still peeing in sinks and spraying walls and doors. As “supervisor” over here at For the Love of Cats, Marco’s no-kill cat rescue, people are always asking me why their cat is misbehaving. Yes, I know, that makes me a hypocrite!

Dear Fellow Felines:

I was a bad girl the other evening when I decided to help with getting dinner on the table. And guess what? I got burned, but it served me right! Therefore, I’m humbly sharing my wrong-headed actions with you so you don’t make the same mistake I did. It really wasn’t worth it.

Dear Fellow Felines:

Merry Christmas to one and all! I know each of you is under the tree at this very moment, contemplating the wands, laser pointers, and catnip mice Santa Claws and Rudolph delivered in the wee hours of this morning, not to mention the salmon, turkey, chicken, and beef flavored treats spilling out of your over-stuffed stockings.
