How to Apply Cat Flea Treatments

A few important things to remember:

Never use dog flea treatments on cats.  They are much too strong and can kill your cat.

Advantage and Advantix sound similar, but never use Advantix on cats.  It is made only for dogs and is also much too strong for cats (and can kill them).

Friday Films: Body Language in Cats

Tosh_A594955While we don’t agree 100% with this video (for instance, we believe most cats ARE social animals—of course, on their own terms), this video has a great deal of good information on understanding cat behavior. 

Cats Protection who made the video, is the UK’s largest feline welfare charity, rehoming and reuniting around 52,000 cats and kittens every year through its network of over 250 volunteer-run branches, 29 adoption centers and one homing center. The charity also promotes the benefits of neutering and produces a wide range of cat care information for owners.

Friday Films: Simon’s Cat – Pawtrait

There’s a new Simon’s Cat video in town and we think you will enjoy it, especially if you’ve ever tried to take a formal photograph or portrait of your feline family member!



Along with the video comes the announcement that an 11-minute color video about Simon’s Cat going to visit his vet is planned.  Says the blog:

“The Simon’s Cat team has some very exciting announcements coming up in the next few weeks.

The month of June will see us reaching two amazing milestones on our official YouTube channel, passing 500 million views and 3 million subscribers!

And to mark this incredible following, we have been developing a script for a special 11-minute film (that’s right, 11 minutes!) inspired by the most fan-requested theme: visiting the vets! The film will be extra special as it will also be the first to be animated in colour!”
