Hi Cat Lover!

If you just made the switch to this newsletter
service, THANK YOU for taking the time and the
trouble to do it. The previous service was not
reliable and I will soon be disconnected from
them. As a thank you, here is a small token of
my appreciation: Download a free Cat Health Report

even a wrong answer gives a donation.)

===================================
STUFF FOR CATS
===================================

One of the most common concerns for pet owners is
odors, and cats seem to be able to produce the worst
kind. On top of that, it can be so very hard to
eliminate them.

One product I just saw on television is called Stream
Clean. You can get it at www.buystreamclean.com.
I have no connection with that site and do not make
a dime on sales. However, I wasn't going to recommend
it, either. It's very expensive. It's $10 per can,
plus 7.95 shipping, and is only in the U.S. They have
a 2 for 1 special, but it's an extra 7.95 shipping.
That makes the total order 25.90 for 2 cans.

In my book, that's outrageous.

If you want something cheaper and know it will work,
go to valleyvet.com. I don't have any connection with
them either, but I know how important it is to be
able to clean up pet messes without leaving a stain.

Once at that site, do a search for "See Spot Go."
It's the ONLY product I've ever used that actually
works. And it's only 5.95 per can.

Shipping will vary according to how much you get,
of course. I always buy a case of 12! With 43 cats,
I go through a lot of it.

Well, just my unbiased recommendation. If you know
of something that works, let us know!

-----------------------------------

With warmer weather now here, fleas are once again
a very big problem. They can still be a problem
through the cold winter months, too, but summer
seems to bring out the worst!

Here's an article from last year that still may be
helpful:

Here's another (NEW) article about fleas:

===================================
TAKE ACTION TO HELP ANIMALS IN NEED
===================================

How to help the animals:

1. http://www.hipaws.com/help.html
Help feed the ones that never got adopted.

2. Always remember to check with your local shelter
to see what they need. Your donation will go directly
to the animals, in sharp contrast to some of the large
national groups, whose donation income goes toward
large administrative salaries and other expenses, not
necessarily for animals.

3. Buy my books if you haven't yet. Sales are used to
help support all the cats here. Thank you.

Be sure to click on the Book List link to see the
other books that are available, too.
