Pet Food Store Owner Starves Cat!


MAU MAU HERE (you were expecting someone else?)

I got a fish bone to pick here with my family.  My parents had to go on a day trip the other day.  Not overnight but gone from early morning till late at night.  They left the dumb puppy and the old dog and me with ….. THE KIDS!!!!! Yes, the two teenagers.

Well, it was not too bad since the girl wanted to pet me and I did spend a lot of time laying in her lap.  Nice, warm, cushy (no, I am NOT saying she is fat…).  The boy sneezes a lot and I always answer with three meows (God Bless You).  But he was downstairs playing with some handheld device with buttons that made cartoons do things on the tv.  Seems to like to do this a lot.  Mom says he plays “way too much”.   But he always picks me up and rubs my belly (UGH- I do NOT like that… I am NOT a dog, or has he forgotten that???)

Well, anyway, it came to be dinnertime and I waited……. and waited….. and waited.   I meowed, rubbed against both of their legs, even purred.  Nothing.   I waited some more…took a catnap, looked pitiful.   Nothing.  The boy kept on with that stupid handheld device, and the girl kept on taking pictures of herself with her phone.  In my opinion, more pictures of me and less of you, Sister.

Needless to say…. HERE IS THE HORROR OF IT ALL…Yes, can you believe it – they FORGOT TO FEED ME!  I tried to call DCFS (Division of Cat Family Services) to hotline them but the cats answering the phone had left for the night to go have dinner.  I AM STARVING at this point.  Wasting away to nothing.  No amount of meowing, purring, being cute could get their attention.   I just went and laid down and looked at them.  Really!  (I am still traumatized… oh no, that is just my stomach rumbling)

Mom and Dad finally came home and fed us.  The TEENAGERS got in BIG TROUBLE.  HaHa… serves them right.  Bet they never forget to feed me again.  I still have that 800# to the hotline.. now only if the cats would answer the phone!  So don’t forget to get the cat’s food if you are out or your cat might call that 800#!

National Lost Dogs Awareness Day

Monday, April 23rd is National Lost Dogs Awareness Day.

ldoasquare

On April 23, 2014, Lost Dogs of America created and launched the first National Lost Dog Awareness Day (NLDAD), a canine-centric holiday aimed to bring attention to all dogs that are lost each year, while also celebrating the thousands of lost dogs successfully reunited with their families.

Lost Dogs of America is an all-volunteer organization with the exclusive purpose of providing a free service to help reunite families with their lost dogs.

The tenacious efforts of the combined states’ volunteers efforts, along with over 459,282 fans have helped reunite over 99,521  dogs with their families since 2011.   Getting lost dogs back home reduces stress on owners’, staff at shelters/animal control facilities, other dogs in the facilities, and ultimately saves taxpayers’ money. It also opens up kennel space for truly homeless dogs.

For more information, or to join the volunteer network, please check out the Lost Dogs of America website:  http://lostdogsofamerica.org


National Hairball Awareness Day

Friday, April 27th is National Hairball Awareness Day.

National-Hairball-Awareness-Day-Last-Friday-in-April-1024x512

Celebrated on the last Friday in April, it is listed as one of the Pet Health Awareness Events of the American Veterinary Medical Association.  The formation of hairballs is a common feline condition that is brought on by self-grooming and the associated ingestion of hair.  While not usually an issue (except to your carpet), hairballs can occasionally collect in the stomach or small intestine, and can cause a potentially life-threatening blockage in the digestive system. Don’t wait to contact your veterinarian if your cat continues to gag, retch or vomit without producing a hairball, loses his appetite, has diarrhea or constipation, or is lethargic.

For some helpful tips on reducing or eliminating hairballs, check out the following website:  http://cattime.com/cat-facts/health/2134-national-hairball-awareness-day

Celebrated on the last Sunday in April, National Pet Parents Day was created to honor all dedicated pet parents across the nation with a special day of their own. There is a very special connection, a unique bond, between a pet and its owner.  This one of a kind relationship, which can often last for many years, is often a vital part of the ‘pet parents’ life.  Their loved pets are considered to be a member of the family.


National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day

Monday, April 30th is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day.

This day was created as a way to raise awareness for thousands of pets that are waiting for (and needing) adoption from the shelters.
