Scoop Away Complete Scoop Cat Litter From Chewy.Com

I was provided Scoop Away Complete Scoop Cat litter From Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

I placed the Scoop Away dust free and 10 day odor free cat litter in a clean litter box for my cats to use. Cali immediately made a deposit. I left out their old cat litter also so they could get used to the new litter gradually. Russ also made a deposit before I left the house. I like the fact that the Scoop Away cat litter is dust free and odor free. It was very easy to remove the used cat litter from the litter box. My cats used the new cat litter much more than their old brands of cat litter. I like the fact that the Scoop Away cat litter comes in a sturdy plastic bag instead of a box. It is much easier to move the plastic bag of cat litter around instead of a box of cat litter where the handle falls off eventually.

My cats continue to use the Scoop Away Complete Cat Litter on a regular basis. There is no overpowering smell to the cat litter. The cat litter has a nice pleasant smell with no odor. The size of the cat litter pellets is perfect and my cats really dig it. My cats make lots of deposits to the litter box containing their new cat litter. The used Scoop Away Complete cat litter has no smell that I can detect. Russ made a deposit right after I had cleaned out the used cat litter box. Russ is very fastidious.

All of my cats next door had no issues whatsoever with the Scoop Away Complete Scoop Cat Litter from Chewy.Com. The consistency of the Scoop Away Complete cat litter is just the perfect size for your cats to move around easily and cover all their business.

Russ grabbed the string  between his paws several times and than he started holding the string in his mouth. Russ had an extra strong grip on the string between his teeth and he started pulling the Flik across the Living Room floor. Russ let go and grabbed the string again with his pads.

Why Did My Mother Cat Abandon Her Kittens ?

A first time mother cat may abandon her kittens because she has not yet learned how to care for them. Most of my cats have always taken care of their kittens by the time they are two years old.

I have had a mother cats carry one kitten away. A mother cat will carry a sickly kitten away and abandon it to save the rest of her healthy litter of kittens. I have tried in the past to put the kitten that she has carried off back with the other kittens. Most of the time the kitten that I put back has died.

A mother cat naturally knows if one of her kittens is sickly and will not make it. I have had mother cats move all of their kittens except one kitten. They have moved the healthy kittens to a different building with an area that had clean straw.

Mother cats may abandon all of their kittens if they are not feeling well. Your cat may not be producing enough milk to feed all of her kittens.

If your mother cat gets frightened by strange people or wild animals coming into the area where her kittens are she may abandon them. Cats do not like any sudden changes in their environment or their surroundings. Try to keep strangers away from a mother cat and her kittens as this may upset her terribly.

A mother cat always tries to take care of her kittens to the best of her ability. She will naturally abandon one that is sickly. She does not want the disease that one kitten has to spread to her healthy kittens and kill them off by the disease entering their bodies.  Mother cats are very protective of their young.

Next time you see a mother cat abandoning a kitten you will know she has a good reason for doing so.

My Cats & Their Relationships With Other People

Some of my cats are very friendly and outgoing.  I have some cats that are very Leary of other people  and like to be by themselves. Cats are very independent creatures and warm up to other people on their own terms and conditions.

I have cats that love to picked up by other people and they love to be patted and scratched under their chin. My Calico cat Cali loves all people and will not leave them alone until they pat her on the head and hold her for awhile. Russ is a light cream colored cat and he is very affectionate and loving. Faith is a gray and white tabby cat that loves to rub across your legs and for you to hold her while she purrs and purrs away.

20150308_151336

Peter, Hilford, and Sherlock are very Leary of all people. If a cats parents are Leary of other people their kittens seem to inherit that trait. Lizzie and Onyx are the parents of Peter, Nicole and Conrad. Onyx and Lizzie are outdoor cats that have not been socialized with people so they tend to be very Leary of all people in general.

Peter

It is very important to interact with kittens when they are very young to get them socialized with humans early in their lives or they may always be a bit on he wild side. Play games with your kittens and hold them and pat them on their head and talk very softly and gently to them and they will turn out to be very loving and social as adult felines.20150501_200027

 

Cats tend to get very close to their owner and tend to be a bit Leary of people they don’t know. When I hand my cat to another person to hold and pat on the head I stay in an area where my cat can always see me and then she feels more at ease with the new person that is now holding her.

I hope your cat turns out to be a socialite.

Kohl My Ease Dropping Tom Cat

My friend and I were visiting on the phone, I asked her what all that noise was in the background. I said I did not know it must be on her end of the line. It sounded like a bell going off at times and someone hitting something while we were talking on the phone. If we did not say much there was not as much background noise. It sounded like chimes at one point during our conversation. My friend said is that your Grandfathers clock, I said no I was at the opposite  end of the house from where the clocks were located.

20170120_075558

As we continued to talk on the phone it sounded like someone tapping a pencil and a bell dinging at times. We finally hung up as it was hard to visit with all of that background noise.

I went to the other room because it sounded like there was a phone off of the hook. Sure enough there was the other cordless phone turned on that was making all of the noise with Kohl’s help while my friend and I were visiting on the phone. Kohl had turned the phone on with his paw and did not like the noise coming from the phone so he kept hitting the phone with his paw. The bell was a clock that has a bell for the half hour and the chime noise was indeed my Grandfathers clock.

I called my friend back and said that the noise had been caused by Kohl my ease dropping Tom cat. She thanked me for calling her back. Case solved perpetrator  Kohl the ease dropping Tom cat.

Cats watch us do things and they catch on very quickly sometimes for our benefit and sometimes to our detriment. Cats have watched there owners play a piano, yoga poses and much more and they copy what they have observed their owners doing. Have your cats learned what you want them to learn for your benefit ?

What Our Pets Can Do For Us

Your child will learn to care for and nurture one of Gods beautiful creatures. Your children will  learn how to be responsible when they care for a pet. Children will learn that their pet relies on them for comfort and nourishment. Your pet will love your child unconditionally.

20150430_180745

Pets are good companions as they  can turn an unpleasant day into a comfortable day. A cat will purr away on your lap and snuggle up close to you. Birds will sing delightful songs to you that will brighten your day. A dog will look at you through their kind and loving eyes as if to say tomorrow will be a much better day for you my friend. A Guinea pig will make their little calling sound to you when you come home from work or school. Gerbils will entertain you as they spin around on their exercise wheel in their cage. I find fish very relaxing to watch as they swim back and forth in their aquarium. I had a pet goat that was very kind and loving, he would greet me in the morning with a soft and gentle bah.

My cats sleep on my bed at night and snuggle up close to me and when I pat them on their head they purr and purr away which I find very comforting and relaxing. When you do not feel good a cat will rest on your lap or lay down next to you. Cats are very good little care givers. Cats keep any rodents out of your home. Dogs bark and scare away unwanted visitors or other wild animals.

20170311_072932

Pets lower our blood pressure and put us in a better frame of mind. Pets make our lives less lonely as they are awesome company. Children that our mean to pets or harm them will grow up to treat people the same way that they have treated their pets. Parents watch your children interact with pets as you will learn a lot about your child’s behavior.

Kohl profile

I hope you and your pets form a strong and lasting bond and that you learn valuable lessons from each other that will help you along life’s many journeys. God Bless you and your pets.

A Love For Cats

Humans have had an infatuation with cats from the beginning of time. The ancient Egyptians worshiped their Siamese cats. They mummified their cats and had them buried with them. Cats heads have the same eye placement , etc. as human babies do. Our cats weigh about what a young baby would weigh.

Garfunkel 2

Cats are very helpful at removing rodents from our buildings and grain. They have helped control the plague by eating and killing rodents. Cats have saved farmers a lot of money by killing the rats and mice that eat the grain on their farm. Before we had cats on our farm rats were eating the corn out of the old corn crib. Once we had cats on our farm the rat population disappeared completely.

Our black cats have not always had a fair rap. They were associated with witch craft years ago and bad luck. My black cats have always given me joy and happiness.

Conrad by jewelry box

I find black cats to be no different than any other color of cat in the feline world.

We love watching our feline friends at play. Having a cat can lower our blood pressure and help us to be more relaxed in general. Holding our cats and having them purr away is very comforting. It is nice to cuddle up next to your cat in the night and hearing them purr until you fall into a restful sleep.

Cats have alerted their owners of a fire in the night or a gas leak that has saved their owners life. My black cat Sebastian let me know that a man was walking down my road at 9PM. He looked out of the window and made a horrible growling sound. I pulled down my window shade for the rest of the evening.

Our cats are  wonderful companions in our lives. Our cats do so very much for us each and everyday. I truly appreciate all of my fine and loving felines that I have and have had in my life.

Memorable Kittens in My Life

I have had many kittens born on my farm in my lifetime. Certain kittens have stood out more than others have because of their character and how they acted in general.

I had a small black female kitten born on my farm in the early summer. She was smart around cars and avoided them at all cost. She would always walk under your feet and I was always afraid I would step on her and kill her. She remained very small for her age. I placed an ad in my local newspaper under giveaways and a nice young couple came and adopted her. I called them about a year after they had adopted her to see how she was doing. They said they loved her so much they had adopted another cat to keep her company. I also inquired about her size. They told me she was fully grown and she was the size of most female cats now. I was very happy my kitten got a loving and caring home.

Conrad

Blacknose was a beautiful tortoise shell kitten. She would follow me around the farm and wait with me for the school bus to take me to school. In her adult life she would catch and kill garter snakes.

Blacknose

One of my tortoise shell kittens would sit on my shoulder while I would paint the farm buildings. She was a very loving and affectionate kitten. When she was about a year old she got run over by a pickup truck. I missed her dearly.

Midnight was a black kitten. He liked to follow my Father around the farm when he was feeding our pigs. One day Midnight jumped on my Fathers shoulder at five  in the morning. My Father jumped and to his relief he discovered it was Midnight that had jumped on his shoulder and not some wild animal.

I  had  one Himalayan kitten born on my farm and she was very gentle and had a kind disposition. All of the kittens on my farm are part Siamese, Himalayan, Maine Coon and domestic short hair.

Snowflake

I have had  so many memorable kittens born on my farm throughout the years that there are too many to mention. My kittens have given me great joy in my life. My kittens have given joy to the people that have adopted them over the years. I am very thankful for all of my kittens that have become wonderful and loving adult cats to share my life with.

Genetics and Your Cat

Your cat may be born with an excellent genetic makeup by the luck of the draw. Some cats are born with an excellent ability to cross the road without getting run over. There will be several generations of kittens that will inherit the ability to cross the road without any problems for generations to come. After maybe five to ten years this wonderful trait will slowly disappear due to a new Tom cat on the seen or too much inbreeding.

Genetic mutations will generally show up as your cat becomes more mature. I have had  cats that inherited lung cancer, anemia, breast cancer, eye cancer, ear cancer, and liver cancer. Sometimes it does not matter that you are very diligent on taking your cat for his yearly checkups. The best taken care of cat in the world can inherit some genetic mutation that has kept quiet in his body for years until something stimulates it to rear its  ugly head.

Snowflake

I had a Maine Coon cat given to me by one of my cousins years ago. She lived to be about ten years old. I had not had a Maine Coon cat born on my farm for about thirty five years and then one of my pregnant female cats gave birth to a male Maine Coon cat. I gave him to one of my cousins for a house cat. She is delighted to have him as one of her pet cats.

Rex cats or hairless cats are a result of a genetic mutation. A farm wife discovered two fur less kittens in her barn one day. She decided to keep  the fur less kittens and now we have a new breed of house cats that do not shed any fur in our homes.

We never know when some horrible genetic mutation might pop up and take the life of our beloved house cat or pet.

Is Your Cat Extra Shy Or very Outgoing ?

Kohl is a very outgoing cat and loves to be around other people. He loves to play with a fish on the end of a stick with anyone that comes to my house to visit. He loves to eat string cheese out of a cat snack dispenser. Kohl makes sure people are watching him get his string cheese out of the cat snack dispenser.

Garfunkel and Conrad are basically my cats only. They love to be held and petted by me and me alone. Conrad’s Mother was very shy and very cautious of all human beings. I do not know about Conrad’s father as he was a feral cat that came to my farm.

Kohl profile

Maggie is a very friendly and outgoing cat and the complete opposite of her sister. She loves to be held and petted by people she has gotten to know for some period of time.

Conrad upside down

 

Cali and Russ and very outgoing and can hardly wait for someone to come to the house to hold them and pet them. They both purr and  purr away while they are being held and petted. Peter is shy beyond shy and likes to hide back of a board most of he day. Addi the Mother of Peter’s kittens is semi shy. Addi’s children Hilford, Mr. Gray and Sherlock do not want to be held or petted. Peter and Nicole are Conrad’s brother and sister. Conrad likes to be held and petted by me only.

Peter

I think it is  part genetics in the fact that some cats like to be held and made a fuss over where other cats rather be left alone. In most cases the kittens act like their parents do around people. Some cats can come around and become completely tame with their human caregiver. Cat snacks and tuna canned in water can make a change in your cats personality for the better. Good food and extra love can sometimes make the feral cat extra tame over time and with lots of patience.
