Tip 75


flat food bowl

Cats have 24 whiskers in 4 rows on each cheek. Whiskers are a cat’s radar system for judging distance and spaces. Cats don’t like their whiskers to touch a food bowl when they are eating. It’s called whisker stress. Cat bowls should be flatter to accommodate whiskers.Courtesy Petrageous

tip of the day

Dogs (and some cats) like cool treats just as kids do. Consider freezing Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree dietary supplements in an ice tray and serve ice as a summer treat. Alternatively, turn the frozen treat into something special by freezing the mixture in small plastic cups and using a natural chewy treat as the stick. Insert the treat when the puree is partly frozen to get the stick to stand up properly. The treat should be easy to remove from the cup if you run the cup briefly under lukewarm water.
