Pet Rescue Alert Download Info


I have pet insurance for my cat, Chester. Many of you may have insurance for your beloved pet friends as well. But even if you do not, you are no doubt concerned about their safety day in and day out. So, if there is an emergency and your pets need rescuing, how will the firemen or other rescue workers know you have pets? Only if you are there....but if you are not, only if you have a means of notification readily visible about the pets who are living in your home. Fire and rescue workers are trained to look for alerts on windows and doors about the pets who may be living inside the homes or apartments they must enter in an emergency. To... » Read More

Lovely Cat Poem


I have seen this cute poem in many magazines and books, as well as places online...the author is not known so I cannot give proper credit where credit is due. But I'm sure all cat lovers can identify with the unknown author's feelings about his or her cat(s): Gentle eyes that see so much, Paws that have the quiet touch. Purrs to signal "all is well" And show more love than words could tell. Graceful movements touched with pride, A calming presence by our side. A friendship that takes time to grow, Small wonder why we love them so. -----------------------(Author Unknown) ... » Read More

A Funny Cat Superstition


I was reading about cat superstitions the other day in search of something to post here. The one that struck me right away was this one: A sneezing cat is a sign of future wealth. Now, I can assure you this one is definitely just a superstition and is not true in the least! I say that because my cat, Chester, sometimes sneezes 13 to 17 times in a row. No joke! And he does this fairly often, once or twice a month. The vet says he has allergies of some sort. I even bought a better air cleaner because of this, and he does not sneeze quite so often as he used to. And sometimes he only sneezes 5 or 6 times in a row before he quits, but when he ge... » Read More
