Dogs Cats and Fur Battles – Pet Tip 251

Cats and dogs have plenty of fur and the battle of the fur and the household never seems to end. Cats and dogs don’t seem to care much about losing a bit of fur but it does bother many humans. Given that the fur problem for humans is not likely to end anytime soon is there anything we can do to reduce the amount of fur that cats and dogs shed?

The answer is ‘yes and no’ and has a lot to do with the personality of the human not the cat or dog. Dogs and cats shed and that is a fact of life. They can no more stop shedding than we humans can stop shedding. (Humans shed skin cells and lose body/head hair every single day).

Timmy was my pet turtle. I had him for 6 years before discovering he was really a she! A few years ago he/she developed shell rot. Unfortunately nothing helped. He continued to be active right up until the end.


For a turtle, his life was most exciting. He was originally stolen from a pet store...by my then boyfriend. He was the meanest turtle of the bunch. He grew to big for his bowl and moved into a tank. There he managed to escape. Moved into a bigger tank...he still managed to escape. My Dad told my sisters to pick him up with a dust pan. My sisters replied, "He's bigger then the dust pan!!" 


He had his own pool in the back yard, complete with sun bathing rock. He ate minows and gold fish. He tormented the dogs and scared various guests. He will me sadly missed. Our whole house is decorated with zillions of turtle ornaments and stuff. So no matter what, he will never be forgotten.


Timmy - we love you.
