Hi there again,

How are you and your kitty this month? Everybody happy?
Did you give your sweeties anything special for Valentine's Day?
Send me an email about your cat's special day, if you observed one.

========================================================

ALERT - COME TO A CAT CLASS!

I'm going to present a 3-part mini-course for cat care soon, and
I would like to invite you to "attend" the sessions.

Here is how it works: Each "class" will be given over the telephone.
All you do is call the number below, at the assigned time, and just
relax and think of it as a normal phone call. You can ask questions
if there is time and everyone isn't talking at once.

To insure your questions are addressed, however, it would be great if you send
them to me in an email ahead of time. I'll make a list and discuss those first.

Just a reminder, though: I'm not a veterinarian and won't be able
to give health advice. I can, however, tell you how I have handled
specific problems we've had at our shelter. And if some problems are
related to behavior issues, I can discuss those. In either case, I
can make no guarantees that any discussion will help or cure or fix anything.

I look forward to all of us sharing our own experiences, though, as
that often helps everyone. Sometimes you may have tried something
that no one else has thought of. We can all benefit from that kind
of sharing.

---------------------------------
Here is the call-in information:
---------------------------------
Class No. 1:
Wednesday, March 1, 2006
7 p.m. Mountain Time (6 p.m. Pacific, 8 p.m. Central and 9 p.m. Eastern)

1-641-297-4600

Then press 605680# for access to the conference line.

(Don't forget to press the # sign after the access code number.)

Also, you might want to call in a couple of minutes early to be sure
you get on the line. There is a limit of 99 people who can use these
lines at one time.

I look forward to visiting with you and answering your questions.

Just use this email address to send me your questions:

mskitty @ theproblemcat.com

The next 2 classes will follow over the next 2 weeks, at the same time
and same numbers. Each session will be approximately 60 min. long, depending
on how many questions there are. But we will not be allowed to go over
that time by more than a few minutes. I will send out a reminder the day
before each class to help you remember.

I look forward to "seeing" you on the calls!

TIP OF THE MONTH

How long do cats live? Generally they have lifespans of about
15 to 20 years, but some have lived into their 30s.

Not all cats are so lucky to have good genes, but you can
add many years of good health to your kitty's life with
a feline fitness program, good nutrition, a protected life style,
and regular vet visits - with a veterinarian who understands feline needs.
Consider a calorie-controlled diet with no more than 10% of
daily calories from snacks; and at least 15 minutes per day
of interactive playtime for sufficient exercise - and the added
benefit of bonding with you.
