Losing a Mother

Losing a Mother

Yesterday was my Mama’s 2nd death anniversary. We offered a mass for her soul and dropped by the cemetery. I’ve been dreaming of her almost every week which made me truly miss her. These adjectives aren’t enough to describe how wonderful she’s been not just to me but to my kids and so as my friends. A lot can testify on that.

Losing a Mother is really though but it has made me tougher as a person and a Mom too. I could not thank my Mom enough for all of what she taught and imparted me. As go on with life, I feel so blessed and lucky that I was once her baby. If given another chance to live, I would like her to be my Mother again.

Mama, I miss you! We miss you!

We hope that you are so much happier now in heaven!

We love you! ?

Caring for your Cat

Generally cat owners are cat lovers and want to make sure their pets are at their healthiest at all times. When one of my three cats, Bobby, started acting strangely and differently to normal, of course I began to worry. He kept making more noise than he usually does and I caught him squatting in my sink as if he needed to urinate but couldn’t. The next morning he was in my plant pot doing the same so I took him to the vet’s drop-in hour.

Bobby is now on a diet of Royal Canin Urinary SO cat food as he had contracted a urinary tract disease. Since the change of diet, I have not caught him in my sink again and he seems to be back to his normal self. Chicken has always been his favourite flavour so luckily he can still enjoy the taste of his food even though it is medicinal.

There are many different brands of cat foods that can help manage certain illnesses, such as obesity, stress, allergies and various organ diseases such as liver disease. These are an easy way to administer the necessary nutrients your cat needs although you should always check with your vet before using any. Also, some cannot be used in conjunction with certain medications which is another reason why you should listen to your vet carefully.

One thing all cat owners should do to keep their cats healthy and happy is to use a regular flea treatment. Used just once a month, products such as Frontline for cats kill any fleas, ticks and lice on your cat and aids flea allergies. There is really no reason not to use a flea treatment as it is so easy to acquire and to use with the topical spot on pipette.
