Do you leave your pet’s collar on all the time? I read that a vet said that collars were not meant to be worn 24/7.
Of course if your animal is outside and could get out of your yard, you would want them to have a collar with ID on. But when they’re at home or at night, it was suggested that you take the collar off.
I’ve never made my pets wear collars. They obviously didn’t want them on and struggled against them. I don’t like anything around my neck, so I decided that I wouldn’t make them have anything around theirs.
But then my pets don’t go out running around either.
With this post I’m relaying some of the things I’ve recently learned and had bookmarked, just because I found it interesting.
I read that technology expert Chris Dancy, who calls himself the most connected man in the world, said in an interview called Rising that smartphones will be obsolete in the next decade.
He encouraged investors to look into technology without screens.
He said: “I think in 1o years it’s pretty safe to say people won’t have what we call a smartphone. They won’t be staring at a device.” And that apps will be a thing of the past.
Well glory hallelujah! I hate to listen to people talking on them. I hate people walking into me because they’re staring at a screen. I hate that people foolishly drive and text and cause car accidents.
I think I told you the only time I’ve seen Andrew have a complete meltdown was when we went into an El Chico restaurant. He had brought his little kids’ smart tablet.
Unfortunately there was no wifi in the restaurant. He wouldn’t eat. He pitched a fit. His mother could do nothing with him because he was beyond calming.
That’s when we started eating at my apartment instead of going out.
When they called a few days ago to schedule a steroid injection for my neck, I told them I didn’t want to do it. I had read some things about it, and just don’t want to go there right now. Obviously I didn’t like what I read.
On Monday I will see my regular doctor to see if she has any other ideas or options.
Remember that Turkish rug I was being sent? Well, it came earlier this week, but I didn’t open it.
When I was asked if I would like to have a Turkish rug, Ivy was but a dream. I hadn’t even decided to adopt.
But now that she’s here, I’m not going to take the chance that a kitten will tear up such an expensive rug. I had FedEx come pick it up yesterday to send it back to Istanbul.
Maybe when Ivy is older I will get a rug.
Ivy had lots of fun with her scratching post this morning. She jumps on top, twists around, jumps upside down and does all manner of acrobatics with it.
Usually in the morning when I’m waking up she is on the her table playing on the cat tree. She has lots of energy in the morning.
What am I saying? Ivy has lots of energy most of the time. But then after a couple of hours, she settles into a window or takes a nap before her next round.
Tomorrow morning I meet with Kelly at Animal Rescue to formally adopt Ivy. I will pay them and get her papers, etc.
I have been doing as they asked, sending them photos and updates every day for 12 days. Today will be 13 days.
Ivy is already part of the family now.
Right now she is laying in the front window. She likes to look outside at whatever is going on. Charlie is asleep beside me.
My word, just look at that tongue. I just wonder how he crammed that tongue in his mouth before he lost his teeth.
