Hello Fellow Cat Lover,
Well, finally! I have the recording of the third
Cat Care Class from March 15! We had a serious
technology glitch during the teleclass and had to
resort to using audio tape to record the call.
At least we had a recording to work from, but it
took this long to create a transcript from it and
to recreate the audio track.
And now, here is where you can go to download it:
It's about 6 MB and close to an hour long. If you
were on that call, you know it's chock full of some
great information, too.
I am indebted to my guest speaker, Nancy Dutton,
the pet massage therapist, for getting this

TIPS OF THE MONTH:
Here in my neck of the woods, we just had another
severe winter storm last month. It made me worry
about all the critters that are trapped outdoors
without a loving home to go inside.
So my tip-of-the-month is about cold weather.
Leaving a cat outdoors in cold weather can be
extremely hazardous to its health. If exposed to
cold for a prolonged time, cats can get what's
called hypothermia... lowered body temperature.
Just as hypothermia can kill humans, it also can
kill animals. If a cat's body temp. drops below
98.5 F, the poor thing will need veterinary
attention quickly. In the meantime, you can help
a shivering cat recover some body temp. by wrapping
him in towels you've just run through a clothes
For cats that live outdoors, such as strays and
ferals that are not owned, nor tame enough to
care for directly, be sure to provide "comfort
These can be boxes, small dog houses, or any small
enclosure that can be heated or insulated. Place
something soft inside to cuddle into to help
hold their body temperature. Often, two or more
outdoor cats will huddle together to share body
Locate the stations in safe areas to prevent
attacks from dogs or skunks or other animals that
might try to get inside.
Set out fresh water daily. Yes, it freezes, and there
is not much you can do about that, unless you have
a heated water bowl. But at least provide liquid
once a day. The cats will learn when to come by
