What to Do When Your Cat is Vomiting

What to Do When Your Cat is Vomiting

While our cats can bring us joy we also have some responsibilities to them. It’s our responsibility to love them and make sure they stay as healthy and happy as possible. I know I hate dealing with stuff like the cat litter and if my cat vomits or any of that fun stuff but it comes with the territory of being a responsible cat owner.

Your Cat is Vomiting

Cats are habitual groomers and it is not uncommon to see them constantly licking their fur. This fur often sticks to their tongue and is ingested by them. As a result, the cat’s system will react to the hair in two ways, and that is to either digest the hair, or let it pass through their system naturally or they will vomit it up. Here are some things that you can do when your cat is vomiting. [Read more...]

10 Eco-Friendly Tips

Powered by Mom Blog talks about 10 Eco-Friendly Tips

I’ve talked about it before but I think it’s always a good topic to refresh and add even more information when it comes to sharing eco-friendly tips. Over the last few years my family and I are constantly trying to improve on being more eco-friendly. I can’t say we’re 100% green but I’m proud of how far we’ve come and how we continue to try to improve. The one thing I like to say is to make it doable for must people just take small steps. A small step can make  BIG difference, so no excuses you can start with baby steps and add on when you’re ready and you’ll find you’re being more eco-friendly all the time. You’d be surprised and how quickly it can make a difference and then you suddenly find yourselves doing more than you thought you could!

This is our recycling before we sort it. This is only one week’s recycling for three people. It’s amazing how much can actually be recycled from our daily lives, we can all be greener!

They bring us love, comfort and joy. Our pets make us laugh with their silly antics. If we are sad, they quietly lend an ear to our troubles, providing a quiet comforting presence. Without them, our lives would be empty! We just couldn’t imagine life without them.

This is, and should be, a concern for many parents who already have a number of things to worry about as their children learn to become safe drivers.

Preparing for a Trip with the Family

Powered by Mom talks about preparing a trip with the family

I don’t know about you but I finding preparing for any type of travel with my family a bit stressful. I’m an organized person but my hubby and daughter are the exact opposite. I love them both of course but they are a couple of scattered free spirits who have gotten used to mom organizing everything. So for the second year in a row I’m headed off to a conference and will meet up with family afterwards for our family vacation.
