Belle ~ Forever in Our Hearts

One year ago today, my lovely bride Belle @Frankencat1, unexpectedly went Over the Rainbow Bridge. Belle had a mind of her own, and didn’t share with her parents or fur sibs, or even me her husband, about her plans. She just went. That’s the way she wanted to go.

A year later we continue to think of her, and mourn our loss.

Her daddy, David Brothers, is a talented jewelry designer and created a zipper pull in her memory.

You can have a Forever In Our Hearts pull for you own for $10 by clicking the photo that will take you to Four Paws Lifeline’s shop. All proceeds benefit Four Paws Lifeline, a 501(c)3 charity.

Four Paws Lifeline is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Our goal is to provide financial assistance to those pet owners who are not able to afford critical care or emergency veterinary care for their furry loved ones. We are here to offer hope in your pet’s darkest hour. We feel that their life should not depend on your ability to pay. Rushing a beloved pet to the emergency vet is stressful and full of fear. To delay treatment because of an inability to afford the treatment only prolongs the pet’s suffering. Often animals are surrendered or euthanized as a result of not being able to afford treatment, we are working towards a future where decisions about companion animal medical care need never be made on the basis of cost. Four Paws Lifeline was started to assist and to take the worry about money out of the equation.

David Brothers has an amazing selection of Handmade Gemstone Chakra charms that he sells to raise funds for Four Paws Lifeline. Please keep Four Paws Lifeline in mind for your next gift.

Tell Your Pet Story to Raise Money for #Pet #Charity

Hi, this is Herman!!! You know me as TattleCat on Twitter. I’m the star of the children’s book, Finding Mya. I’m also known for traveling with my parents in both cars and planes, and having a tricked out Ride that I roll around in at Blogpaws conferences.

What you might not know about me is, before I found my Forever Home, I was a rambunctious kit who didn’t know any better and ran away from my first home. There are theories on how I became lost during my first year, but the gist is I spent a long time wandering Kentucky woodlands along I-75 before I was rescued during a blizzard. I was a mess. My fur had hardened like a turtle’s shell around my body, and I had to be shaved nekked. So embarrassing!

Anyway, that was many many years ago and I’ve enjoyed a long happy life. But my first year could have been my last year if it wasn’t for my family finding me in those woods and taking me home. They made sure my story had a Happily Ever After.

Do you have a special story about your pet that you’d like to share? A funny story? An adventure story? A rescue story with a Happily Ever After ending? If so, I am accepting submissions for a collection of pet-themed stories to be compiled into a book. One hundred percent (100%) of the profits will benefit Four Paws Lifeline, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization whose goal is to provide financial assistance to those pet owners who are not able to afford critical care or emergency veterinary care for their furry loved ones.

Holistic Medicine for your Furry Loved Ones

Four Paws LifelineHave you ever considered using holistic medicine for your furry loved ones? Specifically gemstones.

Now I know that most people have some skepticism about this, but science has shown that some gemstones have piezoelectric charges and vibrate at certain frequencies. Also, studies show that the electromagnetic fields are living things. In holistic medicine we call that Auras.

People that study and become Reiki masters learn to manipulate this field and re-adjust the chakra points. And YES animals have chakra points, too. These chakra points can be used to stimulate the body’s energy into healing or help ailments in our pets. I could go into great detail and elaborate on each of the 8 points, but anyone can Google them and get a detailed description. The point I want to discuss is the use of gemstones to stimulate these 8 chakra points in our furry children.

Many gemstones have the ability to activate the healing potential in the chakra points. Some of the most commonly used ones are:

  • Amethyst for digestive, heart and teeth issues.
  • Carnelian for a vast number of symptoms from degenerative body issues to abuse.
  • Lapis helps cancer pain.
  • Labradorite for stress and anxiety.
  • Red Jasper has numerous healing abilities.
  • Smoky Quartz for nervous system, muscle pain and heart.

2ef76c07-4dc7-4158-b561-4c4a9555ee91These are just a few available out there. With some practice you could use them on your companion. Or just go to Four Paws Lifeline’s website (www.fourpawslifeline.org) and click on the store tab. There you will find numerous collar charms for all ailments and custom ones can be made specifically for your companion’s issues. Be sure to include a note explaining the problem and for a small mark up on the regular price – one will be made specifically for your furry buddy’s problems.

Below Herman shows off his custom-made charms designed to address his problems with high blood pressure, heart and fire pee (his term for chronic urinary tract infections.)

Beware Holiday Decor Pet Poisons

Four Paws LifelineOnce more we move into the depths of the holiday frenzy. With all the relatives, cooking, baking, decorating etc., we sometimes forget about our 4 legged children.

Now most of you know that poinsettia is poison to cats and dogs, but do you realize there are 19 other plants commonly used in holiday decoration/arrangements that are also poisononous?0db68f8a-424f-41dc-83c0-e8de93d3eb00

The most common are as follows:

  • Baby’s breath: vomiting and diarrhea.
  • Carnations: intestinal and digestive problems.
  • Chrysanthemum: vomiting, diarrhea and hyper-salivation.
  • Daffodils: vomiting, convulsions and cardiac arrhythmias.
  • Ivy: vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
  • Lilies: kidney failure in cats.
  • Other plants are apple seeds, Bird-of-Paradise, Christmas rose, Holly, Mistletoe and Amaryllis.

Please be aware of what you use this holiday season. Use artificial Holly and Ivy in wreaths. Ask your florist about what plants are toxic to pets and be sure to throw away all seed & pits so dogs and cats can’t find them.

A few precautions can make all the difference in whether you spend your holidays with family or with the emergency vet. But if you do end up at the emergency vet and are short funds, Four Paws Lifeline (www.fourpawslifeline.org) may be able to help with paying the bill.
