Spring Pet Care Tips

Out2News.com

Article by: Robin Hall – Out2News/Out2martincounty.com

The seasons are changing quickly this year, which may leave us unprepared to contend with all the things that come with warm weather, especially if you’re a pet owner. There are a few things you should keep in mind when caring for your pet this spring and into the summer months.

Even with gas prices as inflated as they are, hopping in the car for a joy ride with your canine companion always comes to mind when the sun begins to shine. It is important to avoid leaving your pet in the car on hot days, even with the windows cracked. The interior of a car parked in the sun can reach upwards of 160 degrees, which can lead to brain damage or even death via heat stroke in your pet. While you’re on your joy ride, avoid allowing your pet to hang its head out of the window. The wind can lead to ear infections, and debris may enter the eyes. When you’ve arrived home safely, be aware that sometimes antifreeze can leak from the engine of your car. Pets have been known to lap up this harmful fluid because of its sweet taste.

Another liquid harmful to your pet’s digestion is water. That’s right, water. Not all water is safe for consumption by animals. If you wouldn’t drink it, don’t allow your pet to drink it. If you are going to the beach or will be near stagnant water, make sure to bring plenty of water for your pet. Drain any reservoirs such as tires from around your house to prevent your pet from taking a drink of water rife with bacteria.

If you’re going to be outdoors on a sunny day, give your pet the same sunscreen protection you provide yourself; pets can get sunburned too, especially around the nose and ears. Although it may seem as if you are helping your pet cool off, shaving its fur close to the skin will more likely lead to sunburn than relief from the heat.

Any sort of lawn chemicals such as fertilizers, rodenticides, herbicides, or pesticides can accumulate in fur and be ingested while your pet is grooming itself. Keep your pets out of reach of these chemicals as well as any other dangerous lawn equipment such as mowers, hedge clippers and the like.

There is an abundance of wildlife present in the spring. Monitor your animals, not allowing them out of sight for too long, especially near wooded areas to prevent interaction with wild animals that may carry disease or less harmful adverse effects, like a skunk’s spray. Exercise frequent screenings for fleas and ticks to mitigate the possibility of the transmission of tapeworms, Lyme, and other infections.

Follow these tips and enjoy a fun and healthy spring season with your pets.

HSTC Pets of the Week

Out2News.com

Ginger

Ginger has had a rather rough start here at HSTC. She was brought in to our care on March 4th when Martin County Animal Services were called out to do a welfare check on her as she was extremely thin. When they arrived they were told by the tenets of the home where she had been hanging out that the landlord had moved out and left Ginger behind! When she was examined by a vet here at HSTC, the vet found that she had extremely poor dental health in addition to being emaciated. Poor Ginger had a lot of dental work done, has put on some weight, and is ready to be adopted! Ginger enjoys leash walks around the building and is currently living in our cat feature room with a handful of feline friends. She is very social and affectionate with people; she loves to cuddle and be pet. She purrs like a little freight train. Ginger is 11 years old and would be the perfect addition to any home. To view Ginger and all of her adoptable friends, visit us online at hstc1.org.

Misty

Misty is a high energy pup who is looking for a high energy home to call her own. She loves car rides, playing fetch, playing with toys, running around like crazy, and playing in the pool. She is house and crate trained. Misty is very formal with her dog friends and does not appreciate dogs who wrestle and jump all over her. Misty came into our care when her previous owners were unable to rehome her and they were about to have a baby. Misty is great with older kids, but she is very wary and stiff around younger kids and toddlers. Misty came in to the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast back at the end of January; she has been here at the shelter for over 2 months and is ready to be adopted!

More than 30 Kittens Ready for Adoption at CFF’s Kitten Shower

Out2News.com

Article by: Shannon Borrego

The annual Kitten Shower at Caring Fields Felines is almost here! Each year cat lovers flock to the party to spend a little one-on-one time with kittens, and to enjoy an afternoon at the sanctuary. It’s fun, it’s free, and it’s the perfect opportunity for the many kittens that come to us each spring to find forever homes. CFF has kittens galore this year, and they are guaranteed to melt your heart. But, don’t worry; even if you aren’t interested in adopting, everyone is welcome to come out and enjoy the party.

And, what a party it will be! Refreshments, tours, and prizes will keep guests busy when they aren’t enjoying the antics of the kittens in the cattery. Baby, the adorable mini-horse, will be stopping by to say hello. Subway will be donating sandwiches for the event and, since it is a baby shower, of course there will be cake! Punch will be donated by Gloria Oliver, who has agreed to mix up a batch of her famous “pink bikinis.”

Naturally, the stars of the event will be the kittens. Over 30 kittens will be ready to go to new homes, and another 30 won’t be quite old enough to leave the sanctuary, but some may be available for pre-adoption. A special Kitten Petting Room will be set up for guests who would like to get to know the babies better and, perhaps even choose a favorite feline to adopt. Choosing a favorite won’t be easy, though. When surrounded by frolicking, fuzzy, funny kittens, they all become “favorites!” Adoption counselors will be available to advise and complete adoptions for those who are able to narrow the selection down and find the cat of their dreams.

The event is free of charge, but guests are asked to bring shower gifts for the cats. Some items on the CFF wish list include Purina One Healthy Kitten Food, Friskies canned food, and Fancy Feast canned kitten food (turkey flavor). Also needed are supplies such as Clorox Clean-Up, paper towels, and kitty litter. Gift cards from PetSmart or Walmart are always appreciated.

Please plan to join us on Sunday, April 22nd at the CFF Sanctuary at 6807 Wedelia Terrace, Palm City, 34990, from noon to 4:00 p.m. In order to help us with our food count, please RSVP online at www.cffelines.org, or by calling 772-675-4688.

All are welcome!

Three Cats Look for Love After Surviving Tough Times

Out2News.comOut2News.comOut2News.com

Article by Shannon Borrego

It’s a difficult decision; you know you want to adopt a cat, but which one? When confronted with all those hopeful felines needing homes, you may wish you could take them all home! But choices must be made; perhaps it’s the touch of a velvety paw that seals the deal, or a tickling whisker, or even a raspy tongue! Often, I think, it’s the look in the cat’s eyes; a look of hope, perhaps tinged with uncertainty after suffering years of hardship.

At Caring Fields Felines, we try extra hard to find homes for those cats who have been through tough times. Currently, we have three such cats available for adoption, and each of them is very special and sweet.

Handsome Harry is a twelve-year-old male cat; he’s a gentleman who has come a long way since he first arrived at the sanctuary, frightened and semi-feral. Over time, Harry has learned that people can be kind and that life doesn’t have to be a constant scrabble for survival. He is now extremely loving and affectionate, and he’s made it clear that he never wants to be outdoors again!

Picasso, a gorgeous female calico, came to us from a homeless woman. Struggling to survive herself, the woman realized the cat would be better off elsewhere. A kind sponsor paid to have Picasso spayed and vaccinated, and this beautiful cat is now in great shape. Although she’s a little shy at first, Picasso wants to make new friends. She will blossom with a little coddling.

Recently, Noel came to us from Animal Control. She was the first cat CFF took in after an amendment to a local ordinance paved the way for feral cats to be transferred to rescue organizations. As it turns out, Noel isn’t even feral; in fact, she’s extremely sweet. She must have had a home at some point, but after being dumped she subsisted on scraps, alone and miserable. She’s very grateful to be “off the streets”. Noel would thrive in a home where memories of abandonment could be replaced by the knowledge that she is safe and dearly loved.

To meet Handsome Harry, Picasso, or Noel, please give CFF a call at 772-463-7386. More information about our no-kill sanctuary in Palm City can be found on our website www.cffelines.org, or visit our page on Facebook.

Responsible Management Important for Cage-Free Feline Sanctuaries

Out2News.com

Article by: Shannon Borrego

In Photo: Cat cottage at the Caring Fields Felines cage-free sanctuary

All cage-free feline sanctuaries are not created equal. While those in charge may have the best intentions, if organizations don’t have sound leadership, they may find themselves overwhelmed and unable to cope with the needs of the cats.

The worst-case scenarios involve sanctuaries in which the cats are not neutered or spayed promptly. These “rescue” organizations inadvertently become breeding facilities in which the population of cats increases and living conditions deteriorate. In some cases, authorities must intervene and shut the facility down. This happened at a facility in Florida some years ago, and several cat rescue groups, including Caring Fields Felines (known then as Hobe Sound Animal Protection League), came forward and made room for some of these unfortunate cats to prevent their being euthanized. The cats were restored to health, neutered, and adopted into loving homes.

Less disastrous, but still cause for concern, are cage-free feline sanctuaries with insufficient staff or volunteers to keep the cat areas clean, sanitary, and odor-free. Overcrowding may exacerbate the problem, increasing the likelihood of disease and creating a stressful environment for the cats.

So, how does an organization steer clear of these pitfalls? A good executive director, sufficient staff and volunteers, and a strong board of directors are essential! And, of course, the support of generous donors ensures that the organization has the necessary funds to carry out its mission.

Caring Fields Felines is very fortunate to have all the above. And the glue that holds it all together is our Executive Director, Pauline Glover. She excels at running the day-to-day operation, and at working together with the donors and the board of directors.

Pauline is loved and respected by both the people and the cats at CFF. But, make no mistake; she runs a tight ship, always putting the well-being of the cats first. In her “spare time”, she oversees fundraising activities and bottle-feeds orphaned kittens. Clearly, the woman never sleeps.

The success of a cage-free feline sanctuary is dependent upon the ability of those in charge to practice responsible shelter management. Without it, a sanctuary may end up harming the very cats it is meant to help. CFF is extremely grateful to have a competent team of staff, volunteers, and supporters in place. Because of their dedication, we can transform the lives of the cats in our care from hopeless and abandoned to happy, healthy and loved.

Love is in the Air at CFF

In Photo: Gucci & Fluffy

Article by: Katherine Goodman – CFF Volunteer

Since this is the month of love, I‘d like to share a bit about a few of our special bonded pairs.
Kitties, just like people, develop strong friendships and attachments. And there’s no predicting who’s going to bond with whom. It’s heartwarming to watch these scared and lonely kitties come to the sanctuary and find a best friend. There’s nothing like having a buddy, that’s for sure!
Our odd couple of the year is Frankie, an older male Siamese with a crippled front leg and his little skinny girl friend, Kiki. She’s much younger than Frankie but is absolutely infatuated with her older man. They are always together. They groom each other; sleep curled up together and spend their days hanging out.
Then there are the brothers, Larry & Curly. Larry was one of Pauline Glover’s fosters and was a mean feral when he arrived. But Pauline worked her magic and he’s now in a loving home with his brother Curly. Curly wasn’t quite as mean and was fostered by Gloria. They were reunited and were adopted together. They’re both quite macho boys, but not to each other.
The “twins” Gucci and Fluffy aren’t really twins, nor are they siblings, but they look like twins, both brown striped tabbies. They came in as feral cats and found each other. They prefer their own company over people. But they have each other for love and companionship. They are totally inseparable.
These kitties found their BFF at CFF!

New Veterinarian Joins Humane Society of the Treasure Coast

PALM CITY, Fla. — Patricia Diskant, D.V.M., has joined the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast as a full-time veterinarian. She joins veterinarians Dr. Kea Apilado and Dr. Roderick Wood.

She worked as the clinic supervisor for the Community Cat Management Course and also was involved in a variety of research projects that were conducted with The University of Florida Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program. Her veterinary experience also includes low-cost spay and neuter programs.

All Pets Go To Heaven

Out2News.com

Article by: Robin Hall – Out2News/Out2martincounty.com

There is a very special place where beloved pets go after they die. This is only a temporary location. But there are trees and grass and lakes, and everything they love. Here they can play and eat and sleep, even better than they did, before they died. Now, there are no aches or worries or dangers of any kind to trouble or threaten them. The only joy missing is their beloved human companion, you.

All health is restored completely, and all injuries are healed. Dogs and cats play with each other like youngsters, and they do not have time to feel lonely for you. They miss you, and with the special wisdom that animals have, they trust that this condition will get better. And they confidently wait as they frolic.

A wonderful day will come for each of them, when in the middle of playing they will suddenly feel something is different. And all their senses will be at the height of excitement and exuberance. They will sniff the air and look off in the distance where they recognize that dearly loved special presence. Then they will call out in elation, and with eyes shining and tail going wild, tear off at a full gallop, almost flying over the green grass.

The bond that we form with animals can be very deep and fulfilling, and the loss of a beloved animal can have an impact on us that is as great, or even greater, than the loss of a family member or friend. This bond is what makes our interactions with animals rich and rewarding, but also what makes the grief process so complicated. The grief can seem to come in waves, may be brought on more intensely by a sight or sound that sparks your memory, and may seem overwhelming at times.

After your pet has died or been lost, it is natural and normal to feel grief and sorrow. The amount of time a person grieves for the loss of their pet may be very different for different people. Although grief is an internal and private response, there are certain stages of grief that most people experience, and not everyone experiences them all or in the same order.Anger and guilt often follow denial.

Your anger may be directed toward people you normally love and respect, including your family, friends or your veterinarian. People coping with death will often say things that they do not really mean, unintentionally hurting those whom they do not mean to hurt.

Depression is a common experience after the death of a special pet. The tears flow, there are knots in your stomach, and you feel drained of all your energy. Day-to-day tasks can seem impossible to perform and you may feel is isolated and alone. Many depressed people will avoid the company of friends and family.

You will come to terms with your feelings. You begin to accept your pet’s death. Resolution has occurred when you can remember your pet and your time with them without feeling the intense grief and emotional pain you previously felt. Acceptance and resolution are normal and do not mean that you no longer feel a sense of loss, just that you have come to terms with the fact that your pet has died. Everyone experiences the stages of grief, grieving is always a very personal process. Allow yourself time to grieve and heal, and be thankful that your life was made that much better by sharing it with your beloved pet.

Memorializing a pet can be a healthy part of the grieving process. A framed photo or a photo album can help remind a pet parent of their pet. Some people keep the ashes of their pets and bury them in a spot favored by their pet. Creating a journal that includes stories about the things your dog did will help you focus on the good times you spent together.   Photographs record those special moments and lock them forever in time. Have a professional portrait painted as a memorial to your dog companion. If you enjoy gardening, plant a tree, perennial, bush or shrub in memory of your dog. Donate to an animal organization in your dog’s name.  Some pet lovers place a brick or stone with their pet’s name painted on it in their gardens or they buy specially designed and inscribed grave markers if their pet is buried on their property.

Realizing that a seemingly trifle, yet possibly most-significant part of pet ownership is doing the right thing for our pets at the end of their lives. Sometimes the hardest things to do are the best things we can do. Loving animals teaches us something about ourselves and so does letting them go…
