Happy Thanksgiving

We'd like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. And, of course, from our perspective, please include your animal family as well in your thanks and celebration.

Happy Thanksgiving! Joy, Braveheart, Amira, Venus, Mercury, Ala, Dream Weaver, Deleite, Diego, Song, Sunny and Martha, Ron, Lemonade, Annie, Crystal & Sunny

Cats & Diabetes In fact, The Animal Medical Center, New York’s largest facility for the care and welfare of pets, estimates that up to 45% of all house cats may be obese and at risk. The AMC, one of the nation’s only non-profit veterinary hospitals sees and treats 50,000 pets every year, many of whom come in with early warning signs for this disease.

Symptoms of feline diabetes may include:
· Compulsive thirst
· Frequent urination with a potent odor
· Sudden weight loss
Pet owners can also do their part to reduce the risk of feline diabetes and the AMC suggest the following steps:
· Consider the “Catkins diet” – a high protein, moderate fat and low carbohydrate program
· Feed cats smaller meals
· Always make fresh water is available at all times
· Never use self-feeders and make sure to remove any plates with uneaten food
· Feline exercise… get cats off the couch and incorporate a daily routine
To learn more about identifying warning signs in cats, tune into Talk With Your Animals on Wednesday, November 26 at 12:30 PM Pacific Time to hear Dr. Louise Murray discuss cats and diabetes. Her website is www.vetconfidential.com

Deleite and Diego are looking for a different lifestyle than the one Joy can provide for them.
They want to be show horses. Their lineage comes from show horses. They feel they were bred and born to excel in the show circuit.
They are Spanish Andalusians, both are 2, born in March 2006. They stand, tie, get shots, feet trimmed, have good manners and are extremely loving horses. They love being in your pocket and follow you everywhere.
DELEITE is the sweetest horse I have come across and is on the shy side. She loves to jump and would love to do 3-day eventing. She has wonderful passion for this particular event. She is looking to be someone’s special horse instead of one of many and is waiting to give her heart and soul to “her person”. From what I know of this girl, her heart and soul are tremendous!
DIEGO is full of life and fun. He is Mr. Personality plus. He knows he is destined to be a dressage horse and can’t wait to get started on his training. He is also looking to be someone’s special horse and have someone he can play with and have fun. He would also be interested in learning tricks or anything else you want to teach him. He is insatiably curious.
If you or someone you know are looking for a young horse to mold into the horse of your dreams, Deleite and Diego could be for you. Of course, they will only go to excellent homes with loving people who know how to treat horses well. Please contact Joy at 360-894-5000 or email JoyTurner@mindspring.com.
