Cats often need baby food, learn which is using GMO’s!

From time to time your vet will recommend that your cat be fed baby food for a period of time. Usually the cat has been sick and is vulnerable to toxins and stresses to the body.

Gerber is using GMO ingredients, and ingredients doused with the herbicide Roundup. If these ingredients harm babies they are likely to harm our cats.

Our sources tell us that Beechnut is not using GMO’s or ingredients which have had Roundup (or similar) applied to them. At this time Beechnut would be the ideal choice for any cat who is sick or being fussy.

One of the many reasons to avoid feeding cats GMO food is that these modified foods have shown to compromise kidneys. I don’t think we need to point out that renal failure is a common occurrence in cats. It’s something we cat lovers try to prevent. GMO’s also harm the liver.

Note: Both brands removed onion powder from their foods a long time ago in response to mothers protesting that if it’s bad for cats, it would be bad for babies.

Here is a really good article about GMO’s and why they are so bad:

Facts about Cat Urination! And a revealing article.

Grab the kids. Grab every know-it-all you know or live with. Then take our test. The science will amaze you!

How long does it take your cat to “empty the tank” of urine?

A) 60 seconds
B) 21 seconds
C) 2 minutes

How long does it take an elephant to empty the tank?

A) 2 minutes
B) 5 minutes
C) 21 seconds

How long does it take YOU dear reader to empty the tank?

A) 21 seconds
B) 2 minutes
C) 60 seconds

The correct answer to all 3 questions: 21 seconds!

While the volume of urine will vary dramatically from species to species it’s the length of the urethra and the time it take for urine to pass through it is what’s identical in just about every species of mammal.

Of particular interest to our customers who have a cat or two showing “litter box aversion” no wonder we can’t always catch them in the act to tell who’s doing it! With just 21 seconds for a cat to do their business surely can make it tough to figure out which in your multi cat household is doing it – no wonder, we often don’t know! They are quick so much so that we often don’t catch them in action.

Hey kids and mothers – won’t this make a great science report for next year? Conduct your own experiments and present them to your class. You’ll get a lot of ooo’s and ah’s, and a lot of laughs! And probably a straight A for creativity and good science.

How to clean Cat Faeries cat toys

Dear Cat Faeries,

My cat’s favorite toys (yours!) are yucky and gross with saliva and other gunk from many months of love. Can I put them in the washing machine?

Love, Diane and the feline fur-kids

Dear Diane and Furry Friends,

Daphne speaking, feline cat toy aficionado and connoisseur…

WHAT?! Wash them? Goodness NO! Do you know long it took to get those beloved toys to smell pretty to a cat? We love to drool on them which makes them extra nice and adds to the heavenly scent of our catnip! But I understand if you feel they are looking a bit ragged.

Don’t put them in the washing machine or even soak them in a bowl of soapy water. You’ll ruin the catnip inside, you could get mold – eww! Dampen a wash cloth and give them a sponge bath. This will remove impacted cat fur, dust, and other ickies. They may still show saliva spots – but don’t worry, to us that’s beautiful!
