Newborn kitten what you need to know to keep them happy and healthy

How to Care for a Newborn Kitten

It is kitten season right now, the time of year when kittens are left abandoned on the side of the road or left with their mama and you might find a kitten or a batch of kittens that you might not know how to take care of. So our local San Antonio Animal Defense League takes volunteers to foster baby kittens like this and we have volunteered to foster this year. So I wanted to make this video to show you what goes into taking care of a baby kitty like this.

What to Look For in a Rubber Floor Mat

What should you look for in a rubber floor mat? First is fearless grip! You step out of the shower, onto a rug, and feel it shift under your feet. Fear floods your system as you think, "I should have bought a no-slip mat!" Look for mats with 100% rubber bottoms, or mats that are 100% rubber like ours. This allows them to stick to the floor without leaving marks. Allowing you to shower, wash the floor, cook, or do cartwheels on your floor runner fearlessly.

How to Stop Your Cat Peeing Outside the Litter Box

First, rule out any health issues by taking your cat to your veterinarian.  If your cat checks out healthy, then there may be a very simple problem with a very simple solution. More than likely she is trying to tell you something.

if none of these products helped in stopping your cat from peeing on your sofa or bed, the solution that worked for us was an electronic Scat Mat.  This unique pet deterrent provides a three-second safe static shock to your pet, once her paws land on the mat. See the video of how we implemented this solution. So far our cat has not tried to get past our scat mat barrier to the upstairs furniture and she’s been using her litter box exclusively ever since we removed her access to her favorite alternate litter box. Hope some of these kitty tips and solutions work for you.
