All kinds of cat breeds

These are long hair cats. You can tell by their fir length. They are cute and fluffy. But these cats need to be brushed every day or every other day so they don’t get matted fur.

This is a short hair, Blue Russian. Even though they look gray under the cat breeds they are called Blue Russians.

I am going to give you the long hair cats and short hair breeds and then you can choose which one best fits your household.

For the Long Hair Cats

The long hair cat breeds are Angora, Turkish, Maine Coon, Persian Longhair, Peke-Face Persian, Colourpoint Longhair Himalayan, Birman, Balinese/Javanese, Cymric (Longhair Manx), Somali Longhair Abyssinian,

These are just some of the longhair breeds there are other I just wanted to put a few to give you an idea of the longhair breeds.

For the Short Hair Cats 

The short hair cat breeds are British/European Shorthair, Chartreux, American/Domestic Shorthair, Exotic Shorthair, American Wirehair, Manx, Japanese Bobtail, Scottish Fold, Abyssinian, Egyptian Mau, Ocicat, Russian Blue, Korat, Burmese, Bombay, Siamese, Colorpoint Shorthair, Tonkinese, Havana Brown, Oriental/Foreign Shorthair, Cornish Rex, Devon Rex.

I have the descriptions of all these types of cats if you have any questions please feel free to ask me and I will give the descriptions of these breeds.

There are so many different breeds of cats that I only got these breeds because these are the most popular breeds of cats around.

Now you also have the mixed breed cats but I don’t have that list available at this time. I will get that list and included on this post.

There are so many pretty marked cats in this world and if I could adopt all of them I would. But I can’t because I don’t have the means to raise all those cats.

Also, remember that when you get a male cat he can only hold two colors at a time, but you can get lucky and get a male cat that has three colors it is rare for that to happen but it does.

I know from experience because at this time I have a male cat that is gray, white, and cream it is a fluke that he has all three colors. His sister is a calico cat and she is dark gray,  white, and cream.

So there you have it many cats come in different colors and different breeds and we can’t forget the mixed breeds.

If you have any questions or comments leave them at the bottom and I will be happy to help you out.

All kinds of dog breeds

Different size dogs

There are all kinds of breeds and sizes of dogs in the world. It is the preference of what kind breed and size of dog that you are looking for. You have the purebreds and mixed breeds.

You have teacup size, small, medium, large and XL large size dogs. It all depends on you and what you want. The teacup size is petite they can fit into your pocket. Small size dogs that are good for apartments.

That is if they allow pets, you may have to pay an extra amount of money to have a pet in the apartment. I would recommend a small dog or a medium dog for an apartment.

Only because apartments are not that big, to begin with, and you don’t have a lot of room in an apartment.  So you have to be careful about the type of dog you get.

For small size breeds to medium size breeds is as follows.

For your small breeds

Shih Tzu, Chihuahua, Pug, Maltese, Yorkshire Terrier, Poodle, Bichon Frise, Lhasa Apso, Cairn Terrier, Bolognese, Scottish Terrier.

These are dogs they don’t shed

Shih Tzu, Bichon Frise, Lhasa Apso, Cairn Terrier, Bolognese, Scottish Terrier.

These are dogs that shed the least

Maltese, Austrailian Terrier, Lowchen, Standard Poodle, Yorkshire Terrier.

These are some of the breeds of Hounds

Greyhound, Beagle, Dachshund, Rhodesia Ridgebach. These are just to name some of the hounds.

For you large breeds

Great Dane, Bernese Mountain Dog, Great Pyrenees, Bullmastiff, Newfoundland, Saint Bernard, Labrador Retriever, German Shephard, Golden Labrador Retriever, Rottweiler, Siberian Husky, Bulldog, French Bulldog. There are more large breed dogs but this is just to name some of them.

These are large dogs that don’t shed

Airedale Terrier, Bouvier Des Flandres, Saluki to name a few of large dogs that don’t shed.

These are medium dogs that don’t shed

Tibetan Terrier, Irish Terrier, and Lowchen to name a few medium dogs that don’t shed

So you now have something to go on from the breeds of dogs that I have mentioned I will be adding more dog breeds real soon.  And don’t forget about your mixed breeds they are the special ones of all.

This is a black labrador puppy he is so cute but remembers he will grow up to be a large dog.

I am saying this choose carefully on the puppy or dog you want because I don’t want to see any more pets put into the shelters they are overcrowded as it is.

If you have any questions or comments leave them on the bottom and I  will be happy to help you out.

Illness and medications for your pets

We are always hearing about the diseases of humans but do you all realize that our pets get the same diseases as we do. Many pets get cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, and that is just to name a few besides the heartworms, worms in general, fleas, ticks and that is just to name a few.

We have to have good vets to detect these diseases so they can get treated for as long as they can. Because our pets mean the world to us and we don’t want them to suffer an extended amount of time.

It is a shame that this happens but it does and we have to watch our pets closely. We have to watch for different signs and symptoms and call the vet and let him or her know what is going on with our pets.

Vet and animal hospital

That way the vet will know what to do next do so they will be able to tell you what to do next either bring them in or take them to the nearest animal hospital.

Because they need to examine your pet and run tests on it to see what is going on with your baby. And you cannot give up on your baby either and you have to stick with him/her.

Because they can sense change very easily and that won’t be good for their recovery no matter what it is. You have to stay strong for them. If we can stay strong for other family members then we can stay for them too.

There are many different kinds of medications for your pet that you can get from the vet or you can purchase many different kinds of medications from Amazon.com This medication is for diarrhea. Pets get that too and there is medication for it, you check with your vet first with any medication. You can get the medication both for the dogs and cats.

Different medications for different diseases

There are so many different medications for your pets today from what the vet prescribes for Flea and Tick, Heartworm Medication, Pain, Joint, Skin Coat, Vitamins, Dental, and Ear for both dogs and cats.

The medications are for any diseases from Allergy Relief, Antibiotics, Antifungal. Anxiety, Asthma, Compound Medications, Cough Relief, Digestive Support & Enzymes, Diuretics, Heart &  Blood Pressure, Hormonal Endocrine, Incontinence, Insulin & Diabetes, Nausea & Motion Sickness, Pain, Seizure & Epilepsy, Thyroid Medication, Urinary Tract & Kidney, and Wormers.

That is a lot of medications for both dogs and cats but in reality, they can get the same disease we humans can get and that is fact. Their medication can add up too to cost just as much as ours if not more.

We as humans don’t really think that our pets can get sick as we do, but there comes the reality check again. They can and they do get sick as we do, and there really isn’t anything we can do about that except continue to take care of them.

For as long as we can keep them as comfortable as possible. They are going to have their good days and bad days like the rest of us do. We have to take it as it comes and when it comes.

Making the choice of life and death

It is hard for us as pet parents to see them suffer and then we have to make the ultimate decision the hardest decision ever. We don’t want to because we love them so but we have to do it in their best interest.

We don’t know even how they get these disease, to begin with. All we know is that they get them and we have to understand that we can’t turn our backs on them because they are just as scared as we are if not more.

They don’t know what’s happening they just know that they are at the doctors and getting pinch and poked and that is all they maybe understand.

We as pet parents have to be there for them as they would be there for us in our time of need. This is just to give you some idea of what our pets medication entails as far as for what diseases they have.

 

Remember to adopt from your local shelter. They need love and homes too.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions or comments feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

Dog and cat diseases

Teaching old dog new tricks

You can teach old dogs new tricks

You can teach an old dog new tricks. It takes determination, consistency, patience, dedication. This will follow under training your dog. You can teach a dog anything you want them to learn.

Yes, you can teach your dog to ring a bell when he/she has to go out for potty time.  You have to place bells around the doorknob or get a bell and place it on a stand of some sort.

Show the bells to your pet and ring them so they get used to the sound of the bells. Then what you do is everytime the dog rings the bells or jingles them you treat him/her. That way they know they did something right.

You want to keep this up on consistent bases. Always have a treat than when they start doing it on their own have a jackpot treat ready something special they don’t always get. Something like cheese, hot dogs, chicken, or even turkey.

Be consistent with your dogs

As long as you be consistent with the dog he/she will learn how to jingle or ring the bells once they do that you start taking away the treat and use praise instead. Always make a big fuss over what they do because that tells them that they did something right.

To let you know you can teach a dog to turn a light on,  medication,  your wallet, cell phone, even your keys. Those are just some of the things you can teach a dog to do.

So don’t ever say again you can’t teach an old dog new tricks because you can. I can’t stress this enough to be consistent, determine, patience, and dedication to that dog. I  would not recommend using a clicker because it is possible that your pet will get used to that and they will expect it all the time.

 

Remember to adopt from your local shelter. They need love and homes too.

2018 American Rescue Dog Show

Dog shows are different from cat shows. The dog shows are hosted by the American Kennel Club and their criteria are very strict. They have a lot more different groups. What I mean by that is they go by the breed of the dog and that is how they have them in groups.

We now have a new dog show called American Rescue Dog Show that is held in Los Angels. This just started this year to help stop pet homelessness.

These dogs comes from shelters, rescue organizations and take ins. They have several rescue foundations that care for these pets.

The different categories

They pick out 2000 dogs that consist of purebreds and mixed breeds and narrow it down to 52 dogs. They have 10 semi-finalists rounds with the 10 cutest categories such as.

Best in Snoring     Best in Talking    Best in Listening  Best in Kissing

Best in Senior Dog      Best in Underbite     Best in Couch Potato

Best in Special Needs     Best in Wiggle Butt     Best in Fetching

The prizes they win

In the first 10 semi-finalists rounds whoever wins they get a silver platter and $5.000 to go to their shelter or rescue organization and in the 10 finalists they pick one and they get a silver trophy along with $25.000 that also goes to the shelter or rescue organization.

Please consider adoption because there are 2.4 million pets that get put down every day because the shelters are overcrowded. To prevent that rescue organization step in taking some of the pets and find foster homes and or forever homes to help out with the overcrowding at the shelters.

If you have any questions or comments leave them on the bottom and I will be happy to help you out.

Black Dog and Black Cat

 

 

Not being adopted because of their color

I have some terrible news and it is unpleasant for me to have to say this but black dogs and black cats are not being adopted because of their color people are being racist against them because of their color.

The shelter had to put down these pets because nobody wants a black cat or black dog and not only that, people also think they are bad luck especially the black cats. All because they believe in superstitions about the black cats.

That is not the only thing that is going on during Halloween when kids see a black cat they will kill it because of what they think the black cat stands for.

It is just so sad that people are this way against pets and it doesn’t make any sense what so ever. That is how these pets are being treated. This is really bad that people would take their prejudices to a whole new level.

Please don’t take it out on the pets

Things are bad in this world but don’t take it out on an innocent pet that does not deserve any such treatment. They did not ask to be born black or handicapped or anything else for that matter.

Like human children, pet babies are just as much of a gift too. They are just as precious, cute and adorable. So there is a major problem with the issues.

We have to be the voice

This issue is one that really upsets me because society is allowing and accepting this behavior and it is just wrong. We have to be the voice for these pets and speak up on there behalf.

We have to speak out and fight for these pets because what is happening is not right and society should not be accepting this kind of behavior. People are treating pets like they are treating humans and that is definitely not right.

We have to be the voice and find a way so no one hurts these beautiful pets any longer. They have feelings and emotions like the rest of us and it hurts them too when they can’t get a forever home.

The black dogs and black cats are being put down because that can’t find a forever home please don’t discriminate against them. They are who they are and they didn’t ask to be born in this type of world that would discriminate against them.

It is a sad affair with this situation and it is not fair. They deserve love and kindness too. I have written blogs about this before and if I have to sound like a broken record then I will.

How can you discriminate against a precious little puppy or kitten that doesn’t make any sense at all to me? This is about the same if not worse then discriminating against a human being because of their color.

Even though they have 4 legs they have right too and I am going to see that their rights are not violated in any way. We have to stop and think about what we are doing. Our furry children look to us to take care of them like they take care of us.

We have to make the right choices on their behalf. We have to be their voice and stand for what is right. If I could I would adopt all those precious pets but I can’t and that tears my heart out. I just want to take care of them.

It shouldn’t matter what color the puppy, kitten, dog, or cat is they are still cute and precious and that is what is important and they are still that way when they get older.

You have to look at from the standpoint that they are not getting old they are just getting better. That goes for any pet but in more serious note we have to stop the killing and start adopting them out to good and loving homes.

Here are some popular breeds of dogs that happen to be black and the are beautiful pets.

The Five Most Popular Black Dog Breeds
Newfoundland. These dogs are literally larger than life.
Scottish Terrier. This dog breed is fairly popular, to begin with.
Rottweiler. Rottweilers are certainly an example of black dogs that get a bad reputation…
Doberman Pinschers. These dogs are a sight of elegance and grace.

A lot of people have these dogs as guard dogs because of there size and strength. The rest of them are cute and precious no matter what size your pet is they will protect and take care of you.

Cats are a bit different there is not one specific breed that is black like dogs and that is fine. There is still black cats. When I see black cats I cherish them and think they are the most beautiful cat. Only the dogs have specific breeds that are black.

They are not bad luck that is just a myth. They are just like any other cat. I think that are the most beautiful cat. They also like to be very helpful to their owners.

 

Remember to adopt from your local shelter. They need love and homes too.

Cat condos are better than furniture

Product Description: Go Pet Club Cat Tree Furniture 62 in. High

 The place to Purchase it: Amazon.com

Product Specifications:

Color Beige Overall Size 38-inch W/27-inch L/62-inch H

Base Board Size: 26 W x 19 L inches

Size of Condo: 10.5 inches Dia x 12.5 inch H

Size of Top Perch : 13.25 inch W x 13.25 inch L x 2.75 inch H

Product Rating: 9.5 out of 10

Overview of the Product

Like this cat condo because it is carpeted and the cats can scratch on it and not damage it. It also has a place where the cats can lay down on it and go to sleep and not be bothered. It will also save your furniture in the long run because they have something to play on.

Benefits of the Product 

Cat trees promote exercise, giving your kitty a good place to climb up and down, run around and just be as active as they want to be. They won’t go on the furniture and scratch it all up.

Get it while they are kittens so they can get used to it, and that is their place to play and lay down on. I do recommend getting a cat condo because it is the best activity for them. This is something that will keep them busy for hours on end.

And they will sleep better because of the activeness on the condo. 

They can play hide and seek in the little cubby holes and then there is a rope that they can swing back and forth and there is a small hammock at the bottom and then there is cup type bed for them to lay in.

It comes in different colors besides beige, black, blue, and brown so you could match it with your living room or if you have a special room for them you can match the color scheme.
