What Is Your Cat's Tail Trying to Tell You?

Since cats can't speak human, they use their body to send us cues as to how they are feeling. One particular body part on a cat that communicates how they are feeling is their tail. Some of the body language they display with their tails is not always so obvious.

As an individual working in the field of Veterinary medicine, learning a cat's body language was important in order to know if they were happy, angry, scared, nervous, etc. It can help you come up with the best way to approach them. Here is a helpful list of different tail positions to help you better understand your cat's mood:

Don't Work Like a Dog on Labor Day

We'd just like to wish all of our hard-working friends a happy and relaxing Labor Day today! 

As you can see, Shiner is off for the day. She's taking it easy with a nice long nap!

Dog Walking Made Easy with Pleash

Our walks with Shiner typically go pretty well. Sometimes, she might get distracted by a bunny or some other critter that she has to attempt to chase after or just stare intently at for a few minutes. I usually don't take many photos for our walks because my phone is just one more thing to carry. I like walking my dog hands free for my own comfort and her safety too.

Can I Pleash go chase that rabbit now? 

Recently, I discovered a new product that is meant to make dog walking easier. It's called a Pleash. The idea behind the Pleash is that it's a purse and leash combined into one. I love the name, by the way. Miss Lynn from Pleash asked Shiner and I if we'd like to review a Pleash at Pawsitively Pets (and have a giveaway!) so we accepted the offer. I've been looking for a simple yet sturdy leash, and I think I've found it. Not to mention the added bonus of the purse-like pouch that it comes with.

Back To School Fashion Inspired by Cats and Dogs

Each year when my daughter goes back to school, we do the traditional back to school shopping and update her wardrobe a little bit. I help her pick out her clothes, but for the most part she chooses what she wants. And each year, she always chooses pet or animal-themed clothing. This year was no exception and she added a few new shirts to her wardrobe featuring dogs and cats.

Our favorite place to shop for back to school clothes is Target, and that's where all of the outfits in this post are from. I'm not being paid to endorse Target or anything and they probably don't know that I exist. But, if you have kids they do have some pretty cute clothes at a good price in my opinion.
