Stop animal abuse

He was a 3 month old kitten that two teenage girls set on fire for fun, in early 2007. Since then he's made a full recovery, and now has a happy, loving home.

He was one of the Lucky ones.

Every year billions of other animals that would normally make wonderful pets are killed, maimed, tortured, tested on, and/or kept in unthinkable living conditions. In addition to that, an estimated eighty percent of the world's population of cats and dogs are staving, neglected, diseased, or are seen as pests.

If you go deeper still the black market of trading exotic animal parts has a multi-billion dollar annual income. And that's just the tip of the iceberg; do I have your attention yet?
A Universal Declaration of Animal Welfare has been created, in hopes to present it to the UN in the near future. Before this can happen a world wide petition needs over 10 million signatures! I know, it's a HUGE number, an intimidating number, but its far from an impossible number.
When I first saw the petition I thought the same thing you're thinking now; "Wow, that's soo many signatures, this petition will probably never make it." The I realized I was right, the petition would never get anywhere if I kept thinking that way. Think about it, there are almost 7,000,000,000 (6,617,726,009, to be exact) people on the planet. Basically we need .14% of the world's population. That's nothing. About 13,000 signatures for a SINGLE animal were collected in less than a month, surely we can get to 10 million for all of Earth's animals in a reasonable amount of time.
If you've ever been around an animal, you know just as well as they do that they are capable of pain, and emotions, just as much as we are. Animals may not be as smart as we are, but they are defiantly not stupid enough to not be terrified of something horrible, or realize that their death is soon at hand.
Please, if you've ever had a pet, seen an animal abused, or even heard a store about mistreatment, please, sign this petition for that animal's sake. Animals don't need to suffer for our benefit, and a devastating toll does not need to be taken on the Earth because of our selfishness. If we come together, we can make a difference. We can change the world for the better!

PLEASE! Sign the petition for a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare to be presented before the UN!! To learn more, please visit our myspace

Help prevent lose, get your Cat microchipped

"Our pets can be separated from us due to unforeseen reasons even when we are very careful. It can happen to you."

A family member is visiting or the cleaning person is over and your pet sneaks out. A hurricane can separate us from our pets too.

You have seen news media on lost pets due to hurricanes its heartbreaking!

A microchip is a small rice like capsule that is injected into the skin by the shoulder blades. Microchiping is easy and painless and can be done by a shelter or your veterinarian.

If you adopt a pet from a shelter alot of time they are already micro chipped. If your pet is lost and someone brings them to a shelter or vet clinic they will be scanned and that number will register to you.

It is very important that you fill out all paperwork and mail in the registration and be sure to contact the microchip company when you move to update your new address!

Urinary disease in cats

Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease Holly Nash, DVM, MS Veterinary Services Department, Drs. Foster & Smith, Inc.

Feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) was formerly called 'feline urologic syndrome' or FUS. FLUTD affects the cat's urinary bladder and sometimes the urethra (the tube-like structure that leads from the bladder to the outside of the body). The term 'FLUTD' is broad and covers a number of conditions of the urinary tract in cats.

What are the symptoms of FLUTD?
FLUTD is a serious disease and if left untreated, it can result in death. Signs of FLUTD include:
Prolonged squatting or straining in or out of the litter box (some owners may confuse this with signs of constipation) and not producing urine or only a small amount

Frequent urination or straining

Pain while urinating (meowing or howling)

Urinating outside of the litter box

Blood in the urine

Frequent licking of the genital area



Some cats with FLUTD develop crystals in their urine. In the male cat, these crystals can block his urethra preventing him from urinating even though the bladder still fills. Sometimes, a plug can form and also block the urethra. You may have heard of a male cat with this condition called a 'blocked tom.'

What causes FLUTD?
Several factors can contribute to this disease including bacterial or viral infections, trauma, crystals in the urine, bladder stones, tumors of the urinary tract, and
congenital abnormalities. In many cases, the cause is never discovered. Factors that may contribute to development of FLUTD include:

Not drinking enough water

A diet high in magnesium or other minerals

Too much acidity or alkalinity of the urine
