1. Pick up cat and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on each side of cat's mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth, pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.

The holiday season is upon us; surrounding us with good will, lots of chill, and neighbors in competition to see who can place the most strands of lights into one electrical outlet. We wear cheerful holiday colors of red and green, and place artificial reindeer antlers and Santa hats on the heads of our unhappy pets.

I love the holiday season. I love the brisk, cool winter days of the desert and the happiness that seems to exude from my fellow drivers as they allow me to cut in front of them during rush hour. And I especially love the thousands of holiday lights that adorn my neighbors’ homes. But even more than that, I love to watch my “anti-Christmas” cats struggle to bring them to the ground.

Free Kittuns... PDF Print E-mail

The sign on the mailbox post was hand-lettered on cardboard and read “FREE KITTUNS”. It appeared there two or three times a year, sometimes spelled this way, sometimes that, but the message was always the same.

In a corner of the farmhouse back porch was a cardboard box with a dirty towel inside, on which huddled a bouquet of kittens of different colours, mewing and blinking and waiting for their mama to return from hunting in the fields. The mother cat managed to show them enough interest for the first several weeks, but after having two or three litters per year, she was worn out and her milk barely lasted long enough for her babies to survive.

Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
~ Saint Francis of Assisi


The day starts out like any other as you approach the trap you’ve been watching for the last hour. The neighborhood cats are weary of you, but they shouldn’t be – you come to offer your help, not to harm them. The long-haired white male with bright blue eyes stare back at you, and you realize he can’t be more than a year old. He ceases his frantic efforts at escape as you approach, and eyes you wearily – his bright blue eyes piercing yours. He’s already shredded the newspaper lining and turned over the can of tuna-flavored cat food you used as bait, and it’s only been four minutes since you’ve trapped him. It will be at least 8 hours before he is free from the cage, but that can’t be helped.

- Money is not important until it impacts your food supply
- Never change your mind once you've made a decision – even if it is in your best interest.
- The best place to lie down is the most well-traveled area, including but not limited to the kitchen table, a warm neck (no matter what species), the middle of the floor, with your favorite person, and on top of the fish tank.

- Frequent naps lower your stress levels.
- Lying in a warm lap will lower your blood pressure and heart rate.
