Easter Safety Tips for Pets

With Easter just a few days away we wanted to share a few Easter Safety Tips for Pets.

    Easter Lilies are beautiful but incredibly toxic for your cats. Ingesting a just a few petals or leaves, licking the pollen off their fur, or drinking water from the vase can cause acute kidney failure in cats. Call your veterinarian immediately if you suspect your cat has ingested any part of a lily. Easter lily
  1. Keep those Easter baskets full of candy away from your pets.

All candy is bad for your pets, but the chocolate Easter Bunny is especially bad. Chocolate contains theobromine which is toxic to dogs. If you suspect your pet ingested any chocolate, call your veterinarian immediately.

3. Easter Grass is another possible hazard. Some cats and dogs love to eat the plastic Easter grass, which could cause an intestinal blockage or other medical issues.

A few simple precautions will help keep your pets safe so everyone can enjoy the holiday. As always, if you have any concerns about your pet, call your veterinarian.

Random Tuesday

It’s Tuesday which means I can join Stacy for some blogging randomness.

This weekend was the first taste of really beautiful spring weather. Granted, it might snow tonight, but it was great while it lasted.

So, what did we do during this glorious weather? We all went to see Captain Marvel. I’m sure everyone went for the same reason we did.

Facebook post stating we went to captain marvel because there was a cat in the movie

Doesn’t everyone base their movie viewing choices based on if there is a cat in the movie or not?

We all agreed it was a great movie. Definitely a must see, even if cats aren’t your main reason to see a movie.

The spring weather did prompt my husband to set out the deck furniture and buy a new grill. I bought some bulbs I probably won’t ever plant and gave one of the dogs a haircut.

Such an exciting life we lead in our little culdesac.

Spring Meow Monday

This weekend we finally had a good taste of spring weather and Snuffy was happy to go outside.

Snuffy, a black and white cat, on a leash enjoying the outside.

He loves to explore outside while we safely supervise him on his leash. He snorts and snorts the whole time. We’re hoping for more spring weather so he can get out and explore even more.

Have you ever tried a leash on your cat? We started with Snuffy when he was just a kitten and he’s never been outside without his leash and harness. He knows what it means when we pull them out of the drawer. He comes running and wiggles so much from excitement we can barely get the harness on. Once outside, Snuffy walks us and we just follow along behind him.

If you’re interested in leash training your cat or kitten, you can pick up a leash and harness specifically made for cats at your local pet store or online. If you’re local to the Rochester, NY area, you can purchase one at the Lollypop Shop inside Lollypop Farm in Fairport, NY.

Your purchases directly help the animals at Lollypop Farm and it’s Snuffy’s favorite place to go back and visit.

National Spinach Day

Did you know that today is National Spinach Day?

Spinach and lemons on a counter

It seems to be one of those vegetables people either love or they loath. I’m definitely in the love spinach camp.

Spinach is super good for you too.

It’s a great source of

  • Iron
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Protein
    Vitamin A
  • Popeye wasn’t wrong, guys.
  • Spinach salad is one of my favorite quick meals for a busy night. My favorite spinach recipe has to be spinach casserole. Seriously, if you like spinach, you have to try it. It’s one of my most popular pins on Pinterest. It’s also a great recipe if you’re on a low-carb or keto diet.

    Spinach casserole

    If you try it, let me know what you think.

    Happy National Spinach Day!

    Where’s Spring Meow Monday

    Okay, where’s spring? I know it’s only the last week of March, but we need spring. I need mud season to be over too. I want green grass and warm sunshine.

    I’ve noticed the cats enjoying our later sunsets and soaking up the rays of sunshine whenever they can find them. Rochester, New York isn’t exactly known for its sunshine.

    Cat enjoying the sunshine

    Jezebel looks like she’s deep in thought as she enjoyed some sunshine yesterday afternoon. I’m fairly certain her deep thoughts run along the lines of “I’m so beautiful” or, “Look, but don’t touch”.

    Hoping spring arrives soon!
