The Spring of Cats

Spring Cat

Getting Kitty Ready for Spring

I have a ragdoll, and his fur is like owning a Siberian Husky. He grows a thick coat in the winter and sheds if of early spring.

Buddy, my Siamese Lynx Seal Point, does get a thicker coat in the winter, even though he is short hair. He is also shedding all over the place but not nearly as bad as Sweetheart (Ragdoll). Buddy sheds more in the fall.

So get those grooming brushes out and start grooming kitty weekly (minimal) if possible daily to prevent excessive hair clutter in the home.

Bath Time for Kitty?

I don’t know about you, but I do know there is no way my cats are going to let me bath them. Now is a good time after a good grooming session to bath your cat to shed off all that winter dander.

Bedding and Posts

Spring cleaning should also include washing down all areas where cats tend to nap/sleep or lay a lot. Cat scratching post could use a good cleaning with some safe cleaning material or shampoo if you will. Be sure to at least vacuum. Wash toys and bedding in the washing machine with pet-safe laundry soap. Try to use unscented if possible.

Pets can get allergies, too, so pay attention during the early spring pollen season if your parents start having some allergy symptoms. Symptoms can include scratching, itching, red or irritated eyes, runny nose or eyes, breathing funny. Keep in mind animals are also affected by mold as well. Spring also means the wet season.

Trip to the Vet

Spring is an excellent time to take your pet to the vet for all their vaccinations, heartworm, flea prevention, and so forth to prepare for the spring and summer months. Even if your cat is indoors, if you have outdoor pets like a dog, you want to get your cat protected.

Zen as Shit

The Group Focus and Motto

I was blessed to be a part of a unique group of ladies called Wild Bitches that originated from Cafemom many moons ago. I still stay connected with these fine ladies through the Facebook group. What makes them interesting is they are very open, blunt, and call it like it is. Some people might find them a little too bold, offensive, or even vulgar. The truth is these ladies are caring, passionate, and give you their best selves if you are honest and accept them for who they are. People like to think that women that curse or tend to be on the rough side are immature, crude, and reckless. This is not true.

The ultimate goal is to be sure everyone has a place that fits their personality and lifestyle. While most people focus on basic general self-improvement (psychological direction) some prefer spiritual or religion. I wanted to open an option for ladies that want to focus on self-improvement that prefer a different approach.

The group is open for discussions, sharing, and devotions based on the journals created by Monica Sweeney. The books we will follow are: Find Your Fucking Happy, Zen as Fuck, and Let That Shit Go.
