I donâ€™t know about your cat, but I was introduced to cat carriers later in life. As a result, I am still not crazy about them. But when I first met a carrier, I used to do an Olympics-level gymnastics â€œspread-eagleâ€ to avoid being put in one.
Needless to say, itâ€™s easier on your cat and you if you start early on getting your cat used to a carrier. But, you can still accomplish it later on.
My recommendation is that you keep the open carrier youâ€™ll use in the room with your catâ€”particularly if it is a room your cat enjoys. You want your cat to positively associate with the carrier.
You need to put a kitty blanket or cat bed in the carrier that the cat will use for napping, playing, or hiding. Also put your catâ€™s meals or special treats just inside the open carrier. You want to slowly acclimate your cat to entering the carrier and doing it on a regular schedule.
Before taking your cat on any lengthy trips, you will want to take a very short tripâ€”like around the blockâ€”no longer than five minutes. When you return, open the carrier to release the cat in your house. Don’t forget praise.
You need to repeat this procedure over and over, slowly increasing the trip time. A non-profit group of veterinarians, shelters, and humane organizations, called The CATalyst Council, recommends you also take your cat on a non-medical, get-to-know-you visit to your veterinarian who can give your cat special attention and a treat. This can make going to the vet when needed much easier.
Oops! I almost forgot. Donâ€™t feed your cat before going on a trip. Like many cats, when I first traveled, I used to get anxious and motion sick: Iâ€™d heave and barf all over the place (and sometimes my bowels would let go too), making the carrier a yucky mess and the car smell really bad).
One of my predecessors, Faust, loved to ride in the car with Dr. Signe. Hrrumph! Some cats will do anything to get on the good side of the head honcho.
Happy Holidays to you and your felines. By the way, Iâ€™ll take honey-glazed turkey if you please.

Unfortunately, just before you take your first step on the righteous journey to pursue your dreams, people around you, even the ones who deeply care for you, will give you awful advice. Itâ€™s not because they have evil intentions. Itâ€™s because they donâ€™t understand the big pictureâ€”what your dreams, passions, and life goals mean to you. They donâ€™t understand that, to you, the reward is worth the risk.
So they try to protect you by shielding you from the possibility of failure, which, in effect, also shields you from the possibility of making your dreams a reality.
As our friend Steve Jobs says:
â€œYour time is limited, so donâ€™t waste it living someone elseâ€™s life. Donâ€™t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other peopleâ€™s thinking. Donâ€™t let the noise of othersâ€™ opinions drown out your own inner voice, heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.â€
Here are ten ill-advised tips (lies) people will likely tell you when you decide to pursue your dreams and the reasons why they are dreadfully mistaken:
1. You can follow your dreams someday, but right now you need to buckle down and be responsible.
Someday? When is â€somedayâ€? â€œSomedayâ€ is not a day at all. Itâ€™s a foggy generalization of a time that will likely never come. Today is the only day guaranteed to you. Today is the only day you can begin to make a difference in your life. And pursuing your dreams is what life is all about. So donâ€™t be irresponsible. Donâ€™t wait until â€œsomeday.â€
Make today the first day of the rest of your new life.
2. Youâ€™re totally screwed if it doesnâ€™t work out.
Wrong! This is a giant, lame load of BS. Youâ€™re not even close to being screwed. In fact, the worst case scenario is that things donâ€™t work out and you have to go back to doing exactly what you are doing right now.
3. Itâ€™s safer to stay at your day job.
Sure, I suppose. But you know whatâ€™s even safer than that? Going home, locking yourself in your bedroom, and never, ever coming out. And just like that, you will have flushed your entire life and your dreams down the toilet. Remember, safer doesnâ€™t always mean better.
4. Thatâ€™s impossible!
Itâ€™s only impossible if you never do anything about it. The reason certain things seem impossible is simply because nobody has achieved them yet. But this doesnâ€™t mean that with your help these things wonâ€™t become possible in the future. If you truly dedicate yourself to an end result, almost anything is possible. You just have to want it bad enough.
5. Only a lucky few â€œmake it.â€
Thatâ€™s because those lucky few got off their rear ends and did something about it! They had the drive, determination, and willpower that you have right now. You can be one of them. Itâ€™s up to you, and only you.
6. You might fail. And failing is bad.
Failures are simply stepping stones to success. No matter how it turns out, it always ends up just the way it should be. Either you succeed or you learn something: winâ€“win. The biggest mistake you can make is doing nothing because youâ€™re too scared to make a mistake. If you canâ€™t handle failure, then you canâ€™t handle success either.
7. You donâ€™t have access to the right resources.
Itâ€™s not about having the right resources; itâ€™s about exploiting the resources you do have access to. Stevie Wonder couldnâ€™t see, so he exploited his sense of hearing into a passion for music, and he now has twenty-five Grammy Awards to prove it. Get it?
8. You need more money saved before you can take the first step.
You donâ€™t need more money. You need a plan. You need a budget. Eliminate ALL the nonessential costs in your life. If pursuing your dream requires you to leave your day job, figure out the absolute minimum amount of income that you realistically require to live. Studying those who have succeeded with similar ventures also helps. But above all, take baby steps. Donâ€™t be foolish and assume that you must have a certain amount of money saved right now, or that you must quit your day job today in order to pursue your dreams. Instead, ask yourself, â€œWhat actions can I take right now with the money and resources I have right now that will bring me closer to desired goal?â€
9. You donâ€™t need any help. Itâ€™s smarter to go after it alone.
You are the sum of the people you spend the most time with. If you hang with the wrong people, they will negatively affect you. But if you hang with the right people, you will be far more capable and powerful than you ever could have been alone. Find your tribe and work together to make a difference in all of your lives.
10. That sounds like a lot of hard work.
Youâ€™re darn right it does! But that doesnâ€™t mean itâ€™s not worth it. I think success in life hinges on one key point: finding hard work you love doing. As long as you remain true to yourself and follow your own interests, values, and dreams, you can find success through passion. Perhaps most importantly, you wonâ€™t wake up a few years from now working in a career field you despise, wondering, How the heck am I going to do this for the next thirty years? So if you catch yourself working hard and loving every minute of it, donâ€™t stop. Youâ€™re onto something big. Because hard work ainâ€™t hard when you concentrate on your passions and dreams.
Disregard these misguided bits of nonsense and youâ€™ll be well on your way to fulfilling your dreams. Now get out there and make a splash!

When your intuition says, “Yes” but logic tries to convince you that “You’re not ready,” remember that intuition is the voice of the Divine.
When your desire is to step up but you feel afraid, remember that you wouldn’t have the desire if you weren’t capable and ready to fulfill it.
Instead of comparing yourself to others, remember to feel immense gratitude and appreciation for YOUR unique brilliance.
If you find yourself holding back, remember that you’re standing on the edge between the old and the new you. Step over the edge and you’ll find freedom.
If you’re wanting clarity, remember that clarity comes when you’re decisive and take action.
If you’ve been playing small, remember that you only have one life and it’s meant to be played full out and full of passion.
If your habit is to give generously to others, remember that you must give in equal amounts to yourself so that your body, mind and spirit never run dry.
If you’re uncertain, remember that fear and doubt are not truth.
Remember that what you admire and appreciate in others is ALREADY present in YOU!
I hope this Thanksgiving holiday you give yourself the blessing of authenticity, grace and ease in all that you do.

We discovered that he had an inoperable brain tumor… and he wasnâ€™t with us to celebrate Thanksgiving a year later.
In the picture, we were trying out different wigs. (He actually looked really good in the pink one â€“ he almost wore it to the radiation clinic!)
Mom and I still miss him, of courseâ€¦ Holidayâ€™s just arenâ€™t the same without him. And he was such a funny guyâ€¦
For instance, heâ€™d get a contrary gleam in his eye and would deliberately mispronounce certain words. And then he would argue endlessly about that until we pulled the dictionary out to settle it. That didnâ€™t stop him for long, though, because heâ€™d quickly find another word to mangle and would go at it againâ€¦
The other day, comedienne Jeanne Robertson was talking about the importance of looking for and finding Humor in everyday life. She said itâ€™s important enough to put on your To Do list, and donâ€™t mark it off until you find it.
I love that idea! Animals enjoy humor too, and by the way, they think weâ€™re pretty darn funny a lot of the time.
Cats and horses enjoy pratfall kind of humor â€“ think â€œThe 3 Stoogesâ€ (yep, itâ€™s true!).
Cats also enjoy sophisticated humor and sarcasm, which usually goes right over your dogâ€™s head.
One of the students in my recent Dog Class was asking questions about house training and territorial scent marking.
Did you know thatâ€™s their version of â€œpee Mail?â€
Dogs communicate with each other in many ways. Scent is critically important, and occupies fully 60% of a dogâ€™s attention and brain function.
Learning to communicate telepathically and share life experiences with other Beings is a priceless gift. It allows us to better understand that we are not alone, that we are connected, and that we can help each other.
Communicating intimately with other species also enriches our own lives through the sharing of our experiences with one another.
Many companion animals choose to spend their lives attempting to break through our barriers, help us heal and become reconnected with all of Life and our Divine Nature.
Remember to look for and find humor, every day. Notice whatâ€™s fun (funny?) for your animalsâ€¦ and ask them about it so you can enjoy the joke too.
Have the courage to be kind, the strength to be confident, and the wisdom to ask for help when you need it.
Take time to offer Thanks Giving, Gratitude and Appreciation for your loved ones, now, before shift happens.
Much love to you and your furrkids,

Val, I had to laugh at your new fun tagline: Work With Val and Shift Happens!
Thatâ€™s certainly been true for me. I am so appreciative of you. I feel like I have so much more control of myself. Thank you for helping me with my confidence. I always feel so inspired after I talk with you.
My husband and I were talking about how good the puppies are now and how much you have helped us with themâ€¦
I wish, I wish, I had known you when Alex and Bear Bear were still alive. Their lives would have been much healthier.
I wish I had known to talk to them like I can do now with my dog Honey. I get a look of true understanding from Honey and Katie. I can’t wait to get home to see them. I love them so.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

Where the wild horses roam free, daily hoof tracks can be followed for miles. Now thanks to new, lightweight GPS technology, Australian researchers are no longer following tracks but recording satellite signals from various wild horse herds as well as domestic horses. Their studies suggest that through domestication and stabling, horses have taken on movement patterns that might be negatively affecting their well-being.
GPS-equipped collars, weighing 1.5-pounds each, were fitted onto the horses and worn for study periods lasting 6.5 days, according to Brian Hampson, postgraduate PhD scholar at the School of Veterinary Sciences of the University of Queensland and primary author of two recently published studies on the research. Wild horses were immobilized for 15 minutes using humane darts to put the collars on and take them off later. The animals were tracked every five seconds, allowing the researchers to create detailed maps and calculate precise information on the horses’ movement patterns.
Their results showed that horses are naturally good travelers, covering average distances of around 10.6 miles per day in the wild. They would even get as far as 5 miles away from a watering source–or 34 miles away for the wild desert horses. These horses would frequently go up to four days without water and walk 12 hours nonstop to their watering point. However, Hampson cautioned that desert horses have probably genetically adapted to dry conditions over the past 140 years. Even so, other wild horses in the study living in rich grazing areas would go from one to three days without water, he said.
Meanwhile, domestic horses at pasture averaged only about four miles of movement every day, regardless of the size or structure of the pasture. Even in pastures as large as 39.5 acres with relatively few horses, the maximum daily average was only 4.5 miles. Movement was significantly less for stalled horses given turnout time in a yard, Hampson said. They averaged only about 0.6 miles of free daily movement.
“Domestically kept horses generally move very little in comparison to the horse in nature,” Hampson said. “This lack of movement can cause and contribute to poor quality foot health and serious systemic disease.”
And, he said: “Many ailments of the horse can be managed by allowing or causing the horse to exercise. We should be aiming for similar activity levels for the horses in our care.”
In keeping with this goal, Hampson and his colleagues also tested five pasture structures to see if they tended to encourage more movement in horses–a thought that has been gaining popularity among some horse owners. The “racetrack” style fencing system, which blocks off the center area of the pasture, made no major difference in movement and actually seemed to make the horses move less, Hampson said. A maze pattern also slightly reduced average movement, and a spiral fence pattern lowered the average even more. Fencing off a tree to keep horses from stagnating in the shade seemed to cause little changes in their movement habits.
In fact, the pasture structure which yielded the greatest daily travel distance was the basic open pasture system of four fenced-off sides, he said.

I like to keep myself entertained. When my human doesnâ€™t provide me with enough things to stimulate me, I explore to see what I can find on my own. In case you havenâ€™t noticed, we cats like lots of activity, including digging.
If your cat is bored and you have potted plants, your cat is likely to target them. Why? Plants remind us of the outdoors and the soil reminds us of creating places to eliminate. Besides, running soil through your paws is fun.
If you have plants, and your cat has not yet started to dig in them, you need to ask yourself if your cat has enough to keep its inquisitive mind stimulated and its body busy.
No matter what your current situation is, you can prevent your cat from digging (or continuing to dig) in your plants by doing what my human does outside in her garden to prevent cats and squirrels from digging around her roses and veggies.
She uses several methods. One is putting a wire mesh, hardware cloth, or garden cloth around the plant. Chicken wire has holes that are too big to deter digging. She has also used large stones that are not easily moved or played with. Aluminum foil can also act as a barrier.
I understand there are various chemicals that are unpleasant to smell and dissuade us critters from digging. My human hasnâ€™t used them so I canâ€™t comment further, except to make sure they are not toxic to us.
But inside, when she still had live potted plants (wink, wink), she also found that nubby rubber mats, and, of course, anything sticky, kept us away.
My suggestion is to keep your feline too active to even think about digging in your plants AND use digging-prevention methods just in case. (And donâ€™t even think about â€œpunishingâ€ your cat for digging.)

Big Pharma has successfully completed its takeover of veterinary medicine in the United States and other first-world nations. Knowing that massive profits could be generated through the bodies of pets, drug companies have spent two decades pursuing an aggressive campaign of rewriting vet school curricula, influencing veterinarians and brainwashing pet owners into thinking their dogs, cats and horses need drugs in order to be healthy. It was an easy sell: Most consumers already demonstrate a cult-like belief in pharmaceutical medicine thanks to a barrage of direct-to-consumer advertising funded by deep-pocketed drug companies, and it was only a minor shift to get them to believe animals need synthetic chemicals in their bodies, too.
So today, the majority of veterinarians in the United States now practice chemical-based medicine on pets. At the first sign of any health symptom, they slap the animal with a prescription for expensive, patented pharmaceuticals. Arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and even depression are now being treated with dangerous prescription medications. Earlier this year, the FDA gave approval for Prozac, a powerful mind-altering drug, to be prescribed to dogs, and many of the most common drugs for people are now routinely used in pets (including chemotherapy drugs for cancer treatment).
(What’s next, Ritalin for puppies? Ten years ago, it would have seemed absurd to diagnose a dog as suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, but today, it’s no more insane than the mass diagnosis of human children with this utterly fictitious disease designed to do one thing: Sell profitable amphetamine drugs to children…)
Pet health is now in rapid decline
The result of all this is that our dogs and cats are sicker than ever. Ask any vet who’s been practicing for more than ten years: They’ve never seen such an increase in the rate of liver disease, nervous system disorders, cancers and diabetes. Ever wonder why? It’s because pets are being routinely poisoned with pet food and pet medicine. Popular anti-flea and anti-tick medications, all by themselves, are so toxic to the liver of any animal that if they were prescribed to humans, their side effects would make the Vioxx fiasco look like a harmless prank.
The idea of actually feeding your dog such high doses of poison that it ends up in the skin tissues where it kills ticks and fleas should be horrifying to any intelligent pet owner, yet most pet owners just buy what their vet tells them to buy, and they feed one chemical after another to their pets, oblivious to the fact that they’re actually poisoning them. (And then they wonder why their animals die of cancer a few years later… gee, didn’t anybody connect the dots here?)
Thanks to Big Pharma influence, veterinary medicine today has become just as much of a joke as the conventional medical system used to treat humans. The goal is no longer to actually heal anyone, but rather to profits by treating and managing diseases without curing or preventing them. Many vets have figured this out, too: If they treat the animals with pharmaceuticals instead of actually curing them of disease (or preventing disease), they benefit from lucrative repeat business! And some of the fees charged by vets now — especially in emergency veterinary care — are just as outrageous as fees charged to sick humans in hospitals. I once spent more than $1,000 for a single day of treatment trying to rescue a sick dog, and half of those fees were for bags of saline solution dripped through an IV. $500 for saline solution? Give me a break. I got ripped off and taken advantage of by a pet care clinic that was exploiting pet emergencies for maximum profits. (There are crooks and dishonest practitioners in the pet care industry just like in the people care industry.)
Holistic animal care practitioners
It’s not all bad news, though. Fortunately, there are more holistic practitioners in veterinary medicine than in human medicine, and it’s fairly easy to find a holistic vet in any major city if you look around. The holistic veterinarians understand nutrition, herbs, homeopathy and other natural modalities. They prescribe solutions and treat animals in ways that are outlawed in human medicine (because they actually work). If you care at all about the health of your pets, I strongly urge you to seek out and work with a holistic pet care practitioner who avoids prescribing pharmaceuticals. Any veterinarian who thinks Fido is depressed and needs antidepressant drugs should frankly have their licensed stripped away and be banished to some distant, isolated South Pacific island overpopulated with sexually aggressive baboons.
The future looks dim for mainstream pet health
When you look at the outrageous toxicity of mainstream pet food, and you combine that with the chemical burden of pharmaceutical medicine, the future of health for pets in America looks rather dim. The pet food being sold at stores — even the so-called “scientific” brands — are mostly crap. Only specialty pet food companies offer genuine food. (My favorites are www.Azmira.com and www.TheHonestKitchen.com ).
The way pets are being treated today by many mainstream veterinarians amounts to nothing less than the chemical abuse of dogs and cats by an industry that has, sadly, exchanged ethics for profits and no longer sees its primary mission as helping improve the quality of life of our animal friends. Personally, I’m outraged by the practice of drugging dogs, cats and other animals with synthetic chemicals to treat degenerative health conditions, and I think those who promote or follow such practices are engaged in extremely unethical, cruel behaviors that should be criminalized.
Just like in the human health care system, nutrition has been thrown out the window and is now replaced with a system of chemical invasion that can only lead to a worsening of the long-term health of the animals exposed to such dangerous treatments.
The proper use of pharmaceuticals
Some chemical medicines do have a limited role in quality veterinary care, however. Painkillers have a useful but narrow role. Antibiotics, although they are widely abused, can be helpful in certain limited situations. But treating
dogs with antidepressants, chemotherapy, diabetes drugs, statin drugs, osteoporosis drugs and other such chemical agents is patently absurd. Most pet health conditions can be easily prevented or cured with good nutrition, and more challenging health problems can be cheaply and safely solved with herbal therapies and other naturopathic modalities.
There is no scientifically justifiable role in veterinary medicine for the majority of the pharmaceuticals now being pushed onto vets, vet techs, and pet owners.
Even the pet shelters are being influenced by Big Pharma.
When I rescued my pet from a local animal shelter, I was given a DVD sponsored by a drug company. It offered to teach me about pet behavior while brainwashing me into thinking I needed to give my dog toxic pills for preventing
ticks and fleas. As this simple example demonstrates, even the animal shelters are now in bed with Big Pharma.
There’s almost no organization in pet health today that hasn’t been taken over (or strongly influenced) by Big Pharma.
It’s not enough to drug all the sick people in the world, you see. Big Pharma has to invent diseases and drug all the healthy people, too. And then, they have to drug all the children and infants to make sure those little beings are set up for future organ failure, which is even more lucrative for the drug companies later on. And just to drive yet more profits home, they’ve got to drug all the animals. Now the cats, dogs, horses, birds, lizards and other animals are no longer safe from the reach of Big Pharma. Drugs are posing a serious chemical threat
to the health of pets.
There is almost no living creature left on this planet that hasn’t been considered a potential revenue source by Big Pharma, and if they could make money drugging all the fish in the ocean, you can bet they’d come up with a fictitious fish disease and find a way to drop little fish pills into the oceans of the world. Profit is the purpose. Health is irrelevant.
And your precious pet is only seen as a vehicle for generating profits by an industry that has zero compassion for living beings (human, canine, feline or otherwise). There is no effort to protect life. It is only an effort to protect (and expand) profits.
What you can do right now
If you’re a pet owner, I urge you to do two things right now:
1) Switch to a healthy, natural, holistic pet food. And make fresh meals from scratch whenever possible. Pets should not be raised to live on processed foods.
2) Fire your drug-pushing vet and switch to a holistic or naturopathic animal care expert, even if they don’t have the same licensing credentials as the drug-pushing vet. State authorities, you see, are trying to de-license naturopathic vets, and there’s a big effort now to push naturopathic vets out of the industry. Sometimes you have to seek them out yourself and ignore state licensing boards (which are totally owned by Big Pharma, by the way). I’ve found that licensing credentials are essentially useless, and the more credentials some vet has, the more deeply they’re brainwashed into a pharmaceutical approach to veterinary medicine.
If you want a healthy pet, you’ve got to get back to basics: Nutrition, exercise, disease prevention and natural remedies. There is absolutely no rationale that justifies the routine chemical treatment of pets with patented, high-profit pharmaceuticals. Mainstream veterinary medicine, as practiced today, is a cruel, exploitive industry that ultimate causes significant harm to the very animals we should be trying to save.
Don’t be suckered by the “miracle pill” sales pitch. Dogs, cats and horses don’t need meds. What they need is great nutrition and medicine from nature.
Just like people.
Mike Adams has really touched a sore spot that all we animal lovers need to pay attention to.
I hope you stop to think about what is happening, and take a minute to ask the right questions.
1. Take matters into your OWN hands. Whether or not you use a holistic Vet- QUESTION their advice… then learn about ALL of the treatment options.
2. Get yourself educated on Natural Pet Health Care. You can go to school or take the much easier option and use some of Dr Jones’ Books and Courses.
3. Vary your pet’s diet- some Raw, some Home-Made and Kibble. Add in QUALITY supplements.
4. SPEND time being WITH your Dog, Horse and Cat. We all too often forget the more important mental aspect of health..
5. The Vaccine thing again..as LITTLE and as INFREQUENTLY as possible!!
