How to Curtail the Rising Cost of Pet Care

No doubt there are enormous benefits to owning a pet, but the care needed to keep your pet healthy can also come with a hefty price tag and leave an indelible mark on your wallet. According to the ASPCA, owning a dog or cat can cost up to $1,000 in the first year, and for many people, much more. Fear not, however. The good news is that you can cut your pet care expenses without compromising your pet’s health and wellness. The following tips will help you save money on pet care for your dog or cat:

    1. Don’t skip the vet.

If you’re trying to save money, it might be tempting to decrease vet visits. But, according to Julie Ciarmella of the American Veterinary Medicine Association, “an investment in preventative healthcare can reduce your long-term pet healthcare costs.” Why? Like humans, regular check-ups can prevent expensive complications down the road.

    2. Get by with a little help from your friends.

Dog-walking, pet-sitting, and kennel services can be one of the most expensive parts of owning a pet. Save some green by taking the “you scratch my dog’s belly and I’ll scratch your cat’s back” approach, and tap into a network of other pet owners in your area. Neighborhood dog parks are a great place to meet likeminded pet lovers; or you could try good old-fashioned advertising.

    3. Choose high-value pet products that give you more bang for your buck.

Grabbing the cheapest product can feel like a thrifty move, but you may be surprised by the impact “cheap” products can have on your budget. For example, cheaper clay cat litter tends to have to be changed more often, so cat owners go through bag after bag at a much faster rate. World’s Best Cat Litter is an alternative that harnesses the concentrated power of corn for long-lasting performance. You’ll use a little less litter, replace it less often and save money for your efforts.

At the end of the day, what your pet needs most is love. Keep things simple and invest in high-value products where it matters, and you’ll be on your way to a pet care budget that works for you and your pet.

Limited Space, Big Love: Solutions for Cat Lovers in Tight Quarters

With more and more people moving to urban areas or just looking to minimize and simplify their lives, small-space living is on the rise. This trend toward scaling back is great news for cat lovers. But sharing your small home with a cat isn’t without its challenges. Here’s how to make sure you and your feline friend live in harmony when space is at a premium.

Give your cat a “territory.”
Cats are territorial animals, just like their counterparts in the wild. Domestic cats don’t need acres of grassland, but they should have a special place in your small home. Let your cat pick his or her favorite spot — it may be a windowsill, a high perch or a dark hiding spot
— and set up a comfortable bed or blanket. Intrusions into this space, whether from humans or other pets, should be kept to a minimum.

Forget about “off-limits.”
In a small space, your cat will need a lot of freedom to explore. Don’t expect furniture, tables or even kitchen counters to be off limits. Instead, keep food, breakables and anything else you don’t want your cat to get into behind closed cabinet doors and let your cat roam free.

Choose a cat litter made for tight quarters.
The litter box can be the trickiest part of sharing a small home with a cat. You need a litter that delivers powerful odor control and makes it easy to keep the box clean. World’s Best Cat Litter harnesses the concentrated power of corn for long-lasting performance and keeps odor under control even in the tightest spaces. As a bonus for apartment dwellers who dread trash trips, this all-natural litter alternative is also flushable* and septic-safe.

Cats can be the perfect pets for people living in tight quarters. It just takes a little planning and compromise to keep everyone purring and content!
*The State of California encourages the disposal of cat feces in trash and discourages flushing feces in toilets or disposing of them in drains.

When I Was ill

I was feeling ill
Solution was the pill
If only it could make me recover
In a spilt, like the Creator

The adhan was heard calling
The water for wudhu' was cool freezing
With His name I began my prayer
To HIM i submit and surrender

To the bed i jumped again
Nothing else to bargain
Covering myself wiz blankets
I was asleep as though in casket

Dreams brought me far
To an island offshore
I saw a bird flying
I thought of many things

I tried to catch the bird
Till i fall down like dirt
And i could not get up
There was no one to help out

I cry a lot but there wasn't any tear
I was left all alone in my own fear
I was awake from the loud sound "vroom"
Alhamdulillah i was safe in my room

A sparrow flew on to my window sill
Making sound behind the grill
It was the same bird as in my dream
But only real this time it seem

I get up and walk towards the window
And the bird was quiet for a minute over
I saw a man starting his bike noisily
Disturbing the bird especially

And now i notice why didn't the bird fly
Just like when i'm ill, i could only lie
It's wing was injured badly
Perhaps by someone or accidentally

SubhanAllah I was thinking
How much ni'mat He has been giving
To ponder upon HIS creatings
Animals with four legs, others with wings.

I thought how wonderful Allah is
Everything around me is really His
I realise how much lucky i am
I'm still able to move around

Thank you Allah for all that You give
The illness You bestow is indeed a gift
Every illness comes wiz His forgiveness
May He grants us mercy and easiness

Quote of the Day

Les rêves passent dans la réalité d'action. Des actions endigue le rêve encore ; et cette interdépendance produit la plus haute forme de vivre.

Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.
