Cat Food

Cats are carnivorous animals; they require meat to survive. This is an important fact for pet owners to remember as they select food for their cats. Nutritionally, cats are inflexible animals that thrive on meat. They need a lot of it for the protein and fat content. 

Cats are different from dogs, but pet owners often treat them like little dogs. Dogs can eat a variety of foods and stay healthy. However, dog food can be fatal to cats. Unlike dogs, cats cannot process carbohydrates well. Eating high-carb foods can cause obesity problems that can lead to diabetes and other conditions.

So, what is the best food for cats? According to the experts at WebMD, pet owners can ignore terms like “gourmet,” “natural,” and “premium.” They are simply descriptive terms with no standard definitions. The best cat food meets all the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) standards.

Whether cats eat wet or dry food, they know what they like. If the food pleases their palate and does not cause gastrointestinal problems, it is probably a good choice. Pet owners can find healthy food for their cats at pet stores, supermarkets, pharmacies and discount outlets. Online retailers like PetFlow.com have a variety of wet and dry foods and cat treats. They also offer a pet food delivery service.

Do the Two-Step

Yes, it's probably the same fox as last week.
However, this was taken on a different day.
I guess this fox likes my pond almost as much as I do!

Last Dragon of 2013?

Hopefully I will still see more dragons this year,
but this could be the last.
I believe this is a Red Saddlebags.

Know What You're Feeding Them

It's natural to want the best for your pet. After all, your loyal companion deserves to be taken care of and pampered. Chances are that you make sure to take your dog or cat to all of his veterinary appointments, get him all of his healthcare on time, and probably even dress him up for Halloween. Maybe you look forward to your evening walks with your pet, cuddling up on the couch watching movies, or even just getting to play with him when you get home from work. Despite all this, though, your job as a pet owner isn't through. You still need to make sure your pet is getting all the right nutrients in his diet.

The right pet food shouldn't be something you just grab off the shelf. Make sure you read the ingredients label and check out what is actually in the food you've chosen for your pet. If you aren't sure where to start, your veterinarian may have some helpful tips for choosing the right food for your pet. If your pet is still an infant or has special medical problems, you'll want to make sure to alter your pet's diet accordingly. Additionally, make sure you always stock up on plenty of pet snack and treats so that you don't accidentally run out at the last second.

Adding a Country Touch

Adding a country touch to your bedroom can mean a lot of things. Do you mean French country, cottage by the beach, or cabin in the woods? Each of these looks plus old world style can get you some very different looks. Shabby chic could also be considered a country theme as well. Evaluate your current furniture pieces to see if they will go with your country theme. Most solid wood furniture will either go with the theme or won't take much time to alter. Anything that is too modern or contemporary with metal may not be suitable. Consider shopping at the local thrift store to add the right country pieces you love. Change out the bed linens, and paint your walls a warm color. Consider floral wallpaper as well.


The country theme can get noticed best through artwork, bed linens, and changing out the quilt. A duvet could also change the look enough as well. Depending on the type of country look you want, choose colors and styles for the linens, quilt, and artwork. Farm animals like chickens will go with French country. Floral patterns will go with old-world and cabin looks. Pastels will look great for the cottage by the beach and shabby chic styles. No matter what you are going for, patchwork quilts can go with all of these country looks. Visit http://www.linens-n-more.com/patchworkquilts-2.aspx for more information.

If I Lay Here

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that bursting into life

Rugged Wings

Rugged Wings

The other day a butterfly
came and lit upon my hand.
I was so very honored
by where it chose to land.
Its wings were rough and rugged.
Its struggles to the eye were clear.
As I stared upon it,
words whispered in my ear.
Yes, I faced some challenge
but don't feel sorry for me.
For these wings have taken me further
than the worm I used to be.

If I Picked You a Flower...

© Misty DawnS

If I picked you a flower,
would you reward me with a smile.
Would you put aside some time
and sit with me a while?

If I picked you a flower,
would you share your heart with me?
Would you take a few moments
and tell me of your dreams?

For, If I picked you a flower,
it's just a simple gift
filled with good intentions 
to give your spirit a lift.
