Purring Cats on Pregnant Bellies… 24 week pregnancy thoughts

Well yesterday was the beginning of my 24th week of pregnancy. Other than the belly button pain and the occasional rib cage or back pain all is well. The bump is growing but I was surprised to see that I didn't gain much weight over the month. I've got a prenatal appointment with the OBGYN next week and I am sure she'll make a comment about the lack of weight gain this month but N and I aren't worried. According to all our reading Tater is just starting another growth spurt so I'll probably pack on several more pounds shortly. It seems my weight gain is not really a gradual thing, I pack on a good amount one month which puts me over what is deemed normal then the next month I...

Fleas make me a crazy lady!

In an attempt to tackle the flea population we bought everyone a flea collar and we spent the weekend bathing our pets. We have the flea carpet powder, the dog has been treated with those flea drops and now we have introduced the flea shampoo and the flea collars. If the flea aren't gone after this I'll be surprised. Fleas are nasty, nasty creatures. If you can't tell the kind of make me crazy. It is all because of this one encounter N and I shared way back in the day. Right after we began dating N moved in to my tiny 1 bedroom apartment with me. It was in Tempe, Arizona in the dead of summer and our fridge died so I went to the complex management about it. They wouldn't...

Upper respiratory infections in pets- Day 1 update

Jack's symptoms have greatly improved and he is acting more himself today, I only added a few drops of colloidal silver to water and orally gave it to him via dropper yesterday. I did not give him more today as he seems significantly better today! However, I have received much information from readers about the potentially harmful side effects of Colloidal Silver and I did want to disclose this information to all my readers. I do not want to give anyone bad advice or only provide one side of the story so I feel it is appropriate to update this post to include some of the potentially harmful side effects of Colloidal Silver. (I added all this stuff to the original post also) As with anything you should consult your doctor before hand...

Upper respiratory infections in pets.

While we were moving in to our new place we were nicely greeted by a neighborhood dog. She was pretty and very friendly. She had a tag on that said her name was Lady and she apparently lived across the street from us. We gave her a pat, pat and our Dixie (our dog) played with her in our yard. Out here in the rural subdivision we live in people have the tendency to allow their animals and small children to wander about the neighborhood without supervision. I guess they must feel it is safer because we aren't in heart of a crime ridden city but still that is no reason to let everyone run amok. That is a rant for another day though. Anyway, we kept the friendly dog out of...

Enjoying holiday gifts and the miracles of life..

On December 26th we headed into town to pick up some accessories for our new goodies and we needed to exchange a gift I got N, he needed a smaller size belt.. While exchanging the belt we found him 3 pairs of pants that were each under $10.00 and I got about 6 shirts that were under $5.00. The after Christmas sales were awesome! With my new camcorder I made a video of our 3 baby finches. Witnessing the miracle of life unfold in our own home has been great! They are all flying now, mom and dad are still feeding them and I captured feeding time on video for you to enjoy! We are off to go see Enchanted in the theater today. Enjoy the finch video and have a good...
