Hi Cat Lover,
I'm sending the Kitty Times out early this time because I want to
share this time-sensitive opportunity with you to get Dr. Andrew Jones'
home study course before he runs out of them.
If you didn't get to hear the teleseminar/webinar he just did on
How to Heal Your Pet at Home, I can tell you it was amazing.
He spoke very fast and didn't repeat anything for 90 minutes,
so you know he gave us a lot of information.
He said he had 700 people on the call, and only printed up
300 home study packs, so they will run out pretty fast.
Here's the link to go see if any are left, and if so, you'd better
grab one now: http://tinyurl.com/ch2y9e
I took a lot of notes, which wasn't easy, if you know what I mean,
but I know the lingo pretty well, so I was able to catch quite a bit.
If you'd like a copy of my notes, let me know. If you want them
for free, here's an idea:
If you buy Dr. Jones' study pack, you won't need my notes, of course,
but if you miss out on the course pack and would like to have my notes,
just be so kind as to help out our poor kitty, Lucky Girl, and I'll
send you my notes as a thank you gift.
Here's how to help Lucky Girl:
Now, I still need a day or so to finish typing up my notes as I had to
write pretty fast to keep up with Dr. Jones, so they are still in a messy
form and need to be cleaned up.
When I was in college, my notes were pretty popular because they
were so complete, and other students who couldn't write as fast as I can
would buy my notes from me the next day after a lecture. (Just to give
you an idea of the quality.)
NEWS FOR CAT LOVERS
Can cats get the Swine Flu?
First, the flu viruses come in different "strains," basically A, B, or C.
And they affect different specie in different ways.
If you've watched the news in the last few days, you may know that
public health authorities have given the Swine Flu a new name: H1N1.
As for the strain that affects cats, it's called H5N1... a different form
of it altogether.
Here's the full article on that: http://tinyurl.com/flu-pets
Just in today: a list of readers' comments in the Dear Heloise column:
Items include advice on how to keep pet hair to a minimum in your
vehicle (use a rubber bathmat runner on the seat), how to give your cat
a pill (get it in liquid form instead), and how to get your cat into a
pet taxi if it's sliding on a smooth surface (put jar opener rubber disks
under the feet). Full article: http://tinyurl.com/c5hbnj

According to PetFoodIndustry.com, a survey done last year
revealed that most pet owners don't know what's in the pet
food they buy, even if they read the ingredients listed on the
The survey was commissioned by the Wellness brand of
Findings were that 66% of pet owners feed their animals
as if they were members of the family and were concerned
about the quality of the food. However, while 56% of Wellness
brand customers said they read the ingredient lists, only 38%
of cat owners buying other product brands did so.
Another interesting finding was that only 38% said they
even understood what the ingredients were.
The overall finding was that people want their pets' foods
to be recognizable, safe, and easily understood.

There is a new airline company that just formed, called
Pet Airways, whose aim is to transport pets safely and
comfortably. No more being relegated to the cargo hold!
