Common Kitty Conditions and How to Prevent Them

There is no doubt that owning a cat can be quite expensive. In addition to having to pay for vaccinations, neutering or spaying and food, unexpected veterinary bills may crop up and really put the drain on your wallet. According to Veterinary Pet Insurance, which is the oldest and largest pet health insurance provider in the country, there are several costly conditions that seem to affect felines the most often. Here is a look at these conditions as well as a few steps you can take to help prevent them from occurring. Foreign Body Ingestion Foreign body ingestion occurs when your cat swallows something that it cannot pass through its intestine or that gets caught in the cat’s stomach, with the most commonly ingested items being string, nipples from baby bottles, strings and shoelaces. In order to prevent this condition, be certain to keep these items and other small items out of reach of your pet and monitor your cat’s toys to make certain potentially dangerous parts are not becoming dislodged. Urinary Tract Obstruction Unfortunately, there is a genetic component to urinary tract obstruction, which means it is not entirely preventable. You can, however, take some steps to help reduce

The Nike Dunk Pro Low Hello Kitty

The Nike Dunk Pro Low Hello Kitty is arguably one of the lowest lying members of the Nike Dunk family. It belongs to the ‘Nike Dunks for women’ family of products, whose other members include the Nike Air Force 1 High Premium Mica, the Nike Women’s Dunk Low Premium and the WNS Nike Dunks Low Flower, to name but a few of the members of this quite extensive family. To say that I have gotten enchanted with the Nike Dunk Pro Low Hello Kitty since I got to use it would probably be an understatement. As the name suggests, the Nike Pro is quite a low lying dunk, which is to say that it doesn’t have a notable elevation between its lowest point and its highest point. To be sure, though, the shoe is slightly elevated from the ground level, thanks to its considerably thick sole – and it is this elevation that qualifies it for classification as a Nike Dunk. The sole itself is grey, with the signature Nike tick of course, but it is painted cream white on the upper parts of it that are viewed as part of the ‘shoe proper,’ though a grey ‘hint’ of the

The Right Cat Food

Korean (Cat) Food Image by Taekwonweirdo I bought this rather expensive cat food (980 wons or ) at Lotte Mart at Seoul Station and saved it for a special occasion. Lucky cats, my sister and her boyfriend got engaged so they were given a Korean feast. What you feed your cat should deserve more attention than you once thought. Take note that what your cat eats will determine how healthy your cat will be or how long it can live. The components of the meal that you will serve your cat should be complete. For its nutritional needs to be met, you need to ensure that you can provide a balanced meal. The most common nutrient that your cat needs is protein. This is an easy food item to come by. It is recommended that this should be served in every meal your cat has then to be added with other nutrients. Vitamins, minerals, enzymes, as well as fatty acids are also added in your pet’s diet. Essential amino acids are also included. You can prepare their meals yourselves. Or, you can simply purchase commercially made cat food. You just need to check the product label to see what nutrients
