Getting A New Pet, Introducing Your Pet To Your Other Pets And Avoiding The Pitfalls…

QUEEN DAISY MAE SLEEPING ON HER THRONE AND FEELING LIKE ROYALTY.

First Offwhen you’re thinking about bringing another pet into your family, there are several important suggestions/pointers I have about doing that. So what are they you ask? Below are a few I have and you may be able to think of some others too. Now on to those pointers/suggestions.

Point #1Always consider where you’re living – Are you in an apartment, Pet friendly apartment or a house?

Point #2When you think you’ve made a decision but you have a family, always take your idea to the family. In other words, call a family meeting and tell them what you want to do then talk it over as a family and let the children know that their ideas will be considered.

Point #3When you’re decision has been made to get a pet, now the next part you want to talk with the family is what kind of pet do you want? Do you want a Cat, A Dog, A Bunny, A Feathered, etc… Whatever pet you decide on, you have to decide on a small, medium or large, make sure you’ll be able to:

ayou’ll have enough time to care of your new pet.

b. make sure you can take care of a new pet.

c. make sure you can afford a new pet. Pets are and can be expensive.

dAlways make sure your new pet has room to exercise and play.

eAlways make sure your all your pets have lots of love.

Point #4 & 5Once you decided on what type of pet you want: Cat, Dog, etc…, now it’s time to go to local rescue/adoption shelter for pets. Most shelters have animals that make great pets. Howeverbe very, very careful of those places that bring animals into malls and places like that. Ask plenty of questions like you would at a shelter. If the people can’t answer your questions and you know more about taking care of that pet than they do then walk away. Don’t get yourself into a situation where it ends in a catastrophe. Let me give you an example that actually happened to my family and I. We had just lost one cat and my family and I had finally decided to get another Cat. The only thing was, we decided we wanted a Kitten not a full grown Cat. Well being at the mall practically daily since I worked at a store in the mall I would walk down, there were animals that could be adopted. We adopted a kitten. Watch out for red flags. Examples of red flags are:                                                       aYou know more than the people trying to get you to adopt the animals.                                             b. When the people argue with you and don’t listen to you.                                                                   c.   If they try to act like they know more than what they do it’s time to walk away.                               d.   Another red flag is when the person tells you if the Cat dies within a week to let them know. Just to let you all know my family encountered this situation and sadly the cat we adopted only lived a week. She was to young to be flea dipped and we tried to tell the people she was to young they didn’t listen. I named her Cutie Pie. Cutie Pie only lived a week before earning her wings and flying to the Rainbow Bridge  and beyond. This was quite some time ago but ended tragically.

So the moral is when you decide to get a pet, always start by making it a family decision & include the children, start by looking at a reputable animal shelter, always prepare for extra bills with your pets, Always look for red flags (hints that the people or animal isn’t reputable, always listen to that gut feeling that says something isn’t right because walking away is better than losing a pet in a weeks time (trust me I know) & if it seems to be good to be true it probably is.

Daisy Mae And I, we say always adopt and/or rescue a pet first but some would say getting a pet from a breeder is like rescuing a pet because the pets are not used like the breeder wants them to be they have become part of someone’s forever family.

 

 

 

It’s Been A Year….

It’s been year as of April 222022. That’s right when all this chaos and life hit my family and life hit my family and I. You see, it all started a few days before April 22, 2021 and then my youngest sister visited to see how everyone was and if we needed anything. I remember to this day what both Dad and I were doing. Dad was mowing and I was picking up sticks to make it easier to mow. We both had started having symptoms but they could be written off as something else or no big deal. The week before, we had scheduled our first vaccine shot for April 22 but that never happened because we were both diagnosed with COVID at Faster Care. Since then, my Dad was in and out of the hospital at least 4 different times and believe it or not he got all of his infections in the hospital. The only thing was Dad had to relearn to walk. Yep COVID took that away from Dad. I’m pleased to say he’s doing so much better now not 100% but doing better. The funny and Ironic thing is, yesterday was a year we both got COVID and we both were doing the same thing we were doing a year ago. Dad was mowing and I was picking up sticks. April 22 was the same day I was thrown into being a full time caregiver for both of my parents and still am doing that today. Things are crazy at our house.

SNOWBALL SLEEPING WITH HER FRIEND TEDDY BEAR.

So who is this beautiful Cat named Snowball? Snowball is one of my Angels. She passed earned her wings and passed over the Rainbow Bridge many, many, many, many years. A guy who was the friend of the family came to our door one day for something and when he saw Snowball, he said we should have named her Avalanche. 

Snowball is a rescue Cat who before we rescued her, lived on the streets and went from house to house trying to find something eat and find a place to sleep and try to stay warm. You all know how children are when they want something, they are good at concocting plans and schemes even if that means getting the one parent to go against the other and come in with them on their plan. Well that’s what happened with my two sisters and I teamed up with Mom to try to get Dad say yes but to no avail he kept saying “When Pigs Fly” AKA a big fat NO. Well if you have a cat or even owned a cat then you know Cats can sense who the person is they need to convince. Snowball sure could sense that person was Dad. So one day on a gorgeous day with plenty of sunshine, Dad went out on the Front Porch to enjoy the gorgeous day and the sunshine. Eventually, Dad got tired and stretched out on our glider to take a brief nap. Surprisingly, Snowball showed up and tritti trotted up the stairs to the Front Porch and hopped up on glider and curled up tight against his back and snuggled in to take a nice long kitty nap. When Dad awakened from his nap, he found Snowball sleeping on the glider with him tight up against his back. Well to say the least that did it, Pigs flew that day because Dad finally relented and Mom, My two Sisters and I got a victory because we rescued Snowball and from that day forward, Snowball had found her purrfect furrever, loving home where she got plenty to eat, plenty of toys and gave us so much fun and joy. Eventually, we got a dog who was a Pure Bread Female Alaskan Malamute, Snowball tolerated Shandar our Alaskan Malamute and lived many years with her. A picture of Snowball with Shandar is below.

When Love, Murder & Rejection Collide: Book Update With Background Information

“Hey…the bird feeder’s empty! What did you do, oversleep or something?”

Book Background Information

As most of you know, I have found a new talent and hack to lesson the stress at least it does for me. That new talent and hack is writing for fun and yes it actually works. Well since my family and I all caught the nasty virus COVID 19, I was thrown into being a full time caregiver for both of my parents unexpectedly. So since I had already set a New Year’s goal of being done with the book I’m writing in which I entitled it appropriately When Love, Murder & Rejection Collide.First should tell you all how found out I could write poems, short stories and yes even books. You know how college professors and college classes can be well boring? One day my college professor who was very boring and strict took the class over to a building to where there was a meet & greet scheduled. She took the class to hear Maya Angelou speak and afterward we had the opportunity to meet her. I took that opportunity and met Maya Angelou that day. The one thing I remember her saying is to never give up.  After that, I thought how cool it would be to write for fun so I decided to start small and tried writing short poems. When I found out I had success at that, I tried my hand at writing longer poems then I went on to short stories. Then approximately 2-3 years ago, I wanted to surprise an author friend who I had been following for a while and write her a poem about two of her main characters from some of her books. As a a fluke none less, the poem I wanted to write kept getting longer and longer about 2 pages worth so with good conscious I felt I had to stop then the next day I contacted the author told her what happened and what I was trying to do then apologized and she accepted my apology. After that, we came to a mutual understanding along with mentoring on my writing. She was really great and stills mentor me today in which I appreciate very much. But finally today I have progressed from writing practice books to writing a book of my own. The update on that book is below.

A PINK SUNSET OR A “LOVER’S SUNSET”.

When LoveMurder Rejection Collide: Book Update

You know it’s funny because the title for this book has changed 3 times. This book has literally been a labor of love. Also, it’s been hard work but well worth it. Will it ever be published? I really don’t know but I do hope so. If it gets that far at least I’ll have a draft of the book. My goal for this book is at least 40,000 words AKA novel length if I don’t get more. Right now from Jan. 1, 2022 to present day, I now have 33,983 words and I’m still writing. Am I having fun writing this book? You bet I’m having fun writing because the book is set in multiple settings. Also even though the book is set in multiple settings, the main setting is in Ireland. Like I said before, writing this book has been a labor of love but what I didn’t tell you is although this book is fiction, it’s based on my first hand experience from being bullied what can happen, what I wish would’ve happened and what I wish the way things could have been so this book that is fiction spans multiple genres. What genres is the book written in? The book is written in the genres of Mystery, Suspense & Romance.

 

 

Reflections: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Reflecting on last year made me really think about the last year and few months & how it was good, bad and yes even ugly. Let’s start with the Good.

The Good

Everything up to April 222021 with live giving us a few minor ups and downs but nothing major just colds, allergies. I even helped my parents around the house inside and out. Dad and I once a week would go for groceries. We always had fun and we brought Dinner home that’s Lunch to you city folk. I enjoyed walking and talking to the neighbors a few times a week, meeting new neighbors and their pets usually a Dog. Things were just as normal as they could be during COVID 19 times. I was just thrilled my family and I were fortunate enough not to catch the nasty virus going around called COVID 19. Then it happened really happened. Really happened. The Bad finally caught up with us and more about that  below.

The Bad

As said before, the bad finally caught up with us and boy did it ever. So what do I mean by that phrase? Let me explain. After Dad and I developed symptoms of COVID 19 that could be explained away as a cold, pulled muscles and allergies so neither one of us thought anything of it then my youngest sister stopped by to check on Mom and Dad and to see if they needed anything we didn’t. However my sister said to my Dad that he didn’t look to good and that she thought he needed to be tested for COVID 19 and after she said that, I said in that case I want to be tested for COVID 19 too. On April 22, 2021 a couple days later and the same day we were supposed to get our first COVID 19 shot but instead we ended up being tested for COVID 19 and guess what? We both were positive for COVID 19. Not a good day. Next then I know a few days later, I noticed Mom having symptoms of COVID 19. Now she was never tested but we suspect she had it since she was in a house with 2 people who were COVID po19 positive. My other younger sister came down for a week to help take care of Mom and Dad. When my sister left at the end of the end of the week, she decided to get tested for COVID 19and sure enough she was COVID 19 positive. You know how it goes, your taught to share, share alike and that’s what Dad and I did, we shared COVID 19 with the family.

From April 222021, my Dad was in and out of the hospital about 4 times if not more plus he had to relearn how to walk. Dad’s getting stronger each day and he has learned how to walk again. Also, on April 22, 2021, I was thrown into being a full time caregiver for both of my parents too.

So after all this, you probably think if that’s the Bad then what’s the ugly? Shall we go onto the Ugly? Check that out below.

The Ugly

On December 132021I finally got my second COVID 19 shot. No big deal right? Wrong. You may remember seeing on the news and hearing that there are people who have reactions to the second shot or even the first COVID 19 shot for that matter. Also, it is said by doctors that you may get sick or symptomatic after your second shot but the symptoms are usually mild. Well after my second COVID 19 shot, sure enough didn’t I get sick and became symptomatic on December 13,2021. For 2 months I kept thinking whatever I had was finally going to go bye byes—it didn’t and so I finally decided to go to my new Doctor. He gave me a 5 day antibiotic and some nasal spray but neither worked. Fast forward to March 29, 2022 and low and behold I’m still sick with whatever it is I have. So this why I haven’t been posting as much.

look forward to getting better from whatever it is I have.

Goodreads Synopsis/Excerpt Of Book:

To read more of the Goodreads for the book All That Is Hidden go to the following link and it is: GOODREADS BOOK EXCERPT/SYNOPSIS FOR ALL THAT IS HIDDEN  .

What I Thought About The Book?:

I really thought the book was an enjoyable read, intriguing, interesting, I was kept engaged from beginning to end of the book especially when the trouble started. Also, I found that this book had wonderful characters and even found a few teachable moments that we could all learn from. For example those teachable were: When a secret is hidden from others that is in our past, that secret most likely will come out eventually and usually at the most inopportune times. What will our secret cost us and others around us? Will it divide the family, our friends, the town/village and surrounding areas.

My Rating Of The Book, How I Rate And My Reason For The Rating:

First my rating for the book is 📚📚📚📚📚(5 books/5 stars).

How I Rate is actually pretty simple. My rating system is below. Starts at 5 stars.

stars Book is well written, clean (no use of swear words), wonderful characters, has action and the author kept me engaged from beginning to end. A definite must read and comes highly recommended.

stars Has some swear words usually no F-words. I may or may not recommend book. If book has swear words but only a couple uses of F-words I may bump rating to 5 stars but that depends on what I think of book and how well it was written.

stars The book was OK but had to many swear words and F-words that I couldn’t finish the book. Not worth my time to try to read again.

and stars = Not worth reading, recommending although I do let everyone decide for themselves. Also, I don’t usually review books that are 3 stars or below.

3 stars = The book is OK but has swear words, use of F-word, graphic sex and in my opinion not worth reading.

4- 4 1/2 stars = The book is better than 3 stars and has a good story and plot and should read the book just to decide for yourself.

5 stars or more = The book is a must read, is clean, easy to read and worth reading.

My Recommendation & Will I Read Again?:

I highly recommend the book All That Is Hidden by Laura DeNooyer-Moore. 

Will I read the book again? Absolutely. I loved the book.

 

 

 

 

 

The Death Of An Apple: A Poem

The Death Of An Apple

Now my apple brother and sisters, we are once again

stuck on this tree again this Summer and

when there gets to be a good crop of us

Mr. Tree decides to bend so low we can

touch the ground so that Humans can

pick us then eat us so they don’t have to

go to the doctor or so they say.

Although hanging around all day on this

tree with you all can be fun, I

sure would like to be down off this

tree and trying out new homes and trying

to stay out of people’s mouths.

Can’t you see it now my apple brothers and

sisters, us apples exploring homes and

getting to know the people that live

there before we well…bite the dust

as the humans say.

So before you say pick me to a Human,

Think do I want to get eaten or

just hang around with my apple brothers

and sisters and get wormy and rotten?

Actually my apple brothers and sisters, if

you think about it either way is a

death sentence to us apples so the

choice is really do you want a

slow death or a fast death?

Thank You To Our Secret Paw, Secret Paw Reveal & Amazon Update

Hi Everyone, Daisy Mae here with my update on my Secret Paw gift from Amazon. According to Amazon, my last Secret Paw gift was finally delivered at 4:00 PM on December 24, 2021. Now that’s what I call cutting it close.

So who was my Secret Paw you ask? My Secret Paw who bought for me was Peekaboo, Onyx, Angel Smokey and Butterfly. Thanks to their Human too. What were the Prezzies I got? The Prezzies my Secret Paw got me are: A 4-pack of Crinkle balls to play with, I got a new Pole to play with–YEAH!!, I got a new catnip mat that’s nice and warm, I got a thermal mat to lay on and it’s nice and warm. I used it already. Also, I got A case of Classic Pate` Chicken Fancy Feast canned, A big bag of Indoor Health Meow Mix Dry Cat Food, A big bag of Hairball Meow Mix Dry Cat Food, A round mat with a toy to chase and a Bag of Chicken Temptation Cat Treats. Thanks to my Secret Paw. I loved everything you got me and we loved your card too. 

I have to tell you this though, Mom Crystal had walked to the Post Office which she does most days but when the Post Mistress handed her the box she told her it was heavy. She had her mail from her mailbox too. So how does she get the box home? Well that’s the part that’s incredible, The Post Mistress put her mail in a bag to carry and she carried the box the whole way home. She got her exercise that Morning.

Now for my Secret Paw who I bought for this year. Who was it? My Secret Paw who I had fun buying for are: Raz, Noelle, Reesie & Sharon.

We have also posted at our other blog Secret Paws. So check that out too by clicking on the following link and that is: Thank You To Our Secret Paw & Secret Paw Reveal

Mom Crystal’s Letter To Santa Paws: Part 2

Dear Santa Paws,

have so many blessings I’m thankful for and I’ve been a very good girl this year. Santa Paws, I would really like a 5 or better yet 6-shelf bookcase that’s wide so I can put my library of books in and I would like some more books too. I love to read. Some other things I’d like Santa Paws is, to get my Dad back to where he was before he got really sick. I’m grateful he’s recovered mostly but want him back the same way he was before COVID. Also, I would like you to make my Mom better and to be able to get her strength back and be able to walk again that her autoimmune deficiency disease has just taken away from her. 

Santa Paws, I believe in you and so does my Cat Daisy Mae.

🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁MERRY CHRISTMAS SANTA PAWS🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁

Daisy Mae’s Letter To Santa Paws: Part 1

QUEEN DAISY MAE IN THE CHRISTMAS TREE BOX CHECKING THINGS OUT. THIS WAS CHRISTMAS TIME 2017.

Dear Santa Paws,

I’ve been very good Kitty Cat this year. OK, yes I’ve been very demanding, adamant and very bossy and even scratched Mom Crystal but that was an accident. Don’t we all deserve a second chance? Santa Paws, I’m asking you to bring me some more catnip pads for me to lay on, Catnip and Pole to play with. Also, I’m asking you to bring my Mom Crystal some nice things for Christmas. You see Santa Paws, Mom Crystal has had a rough year especially these last 7 months or so and she really, really, really, really deserves some nice things. Could you see to it she gets the bookcase she wants as well as books to fill it. 

Santa Paws, Mom Crystal and I believe in you and think you’re great.

🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄Merry Christmas Santa Paws!!🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

Love,

Daisy Mae

 

It’s Finally Done: Shopping For My Secret Paw!!

Hi everyone, it’s that time of the of the year for doing Secret Paw. What’s Secret Paw you ask?? Well…for those of you who don’t know, Secret Paw is buying a  surprise Christmas gift for that special Cat or other pet or pets. I got in it again this year and when Mom Crystal and I found who our Secret Paw was, we started shopping on Amazon right away well Mom Crystal did anyway. All gifts that were picked out had to be approved by me so that took until Cyber Monday Night when we literally had only 3 minutes and 8 seconds to place our order so we cut it close but the order was placed in time. MEOW, Thank Heavens for that.

We love our Secret Paw and think it will be a surprise to our Secret Paw too. Mom Crystal picked out some nice things but you know how Amazon is with Subscribe and Save…Even if you only want to order it once they revert it back to Subscribe and Save so that’s why it took so long to pick things out. But in the end , I’m happy with what we got and Mom Crystal was able to use a coupon Amazon. Boy am I excited to see what my Secret Paw got me, who it is, and where there from.

Merry Christmas To All And May Santa Paws Bring You All Lots Of Goodies.

I Did It, I Got My First Vaccine Shot!!

I finally did it, I went and my first vaccine shot. I got the Pfizer one after a lot of thought and careful consideration of which one is the best. The thing is, I didn’t get Pfizer because it’s better but because Pfizer didn’t have as much trouble. I heard and saw things that happened with each one because each one has problems. The question was which one is the better bet. I made a judgement call and hope it works out.  My second shot is supposed to be on Dec. 13. I look forward to getting my second shot and I’m unsure about whether or not I’m getting the booster or not. However, the Pfizer booster shot is supposed to help get rid of the Omicron Variant of COVID.

When Life Hits You Hard Then Also Throws You CurveBalls & Feline Friday

DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY.

Hi everyone, Daisy Mae here. If you don’t know who I am (shame on you). No really, if you don’t know who I am let me introduce myself. I’m Crystal’s pet Cat and the other half of CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE. I help out when something happens that Crystal can’t post.

The reason why she isn’t hear is because well she’s had a rough few months. As the title states, Life hit her and her family hard  then through her some curve balls to top it all off. I guess it all started way back in April a few days before April 22, 2021. The Dad had started hurting some and then Mom started getting body aches too. Neither one thought anything about it because Dad was out mowing and Crystal picking up sticks so they blamed it all on either a Sinus Cold, Allergies, pollen and bending to much and using muscles she hasn’t used in a year’s time  in Crystal’s case (don’t ask).  After almost a weeks time and the pain hadn’t left yet it was then Crystal started suspecting something was off and wrong. 2 days later, Crystal’s youngest sister popped in to check in on everyone and when she heard Dad’s symptom’s she said we’re going to get you tested for COVID and that’s when Crystal spoke up and said, I want tested too. So on April 22, 2021 the day the Dad and Crystal were to get their first vaccine shot well that didn’t happen instead they went to this place called Faster Care. After hearing their symptoms they tested them both and the Dad’s Rapid COVID test was negative but Crystal’s COVID test was positive. The strange part is The Dad’s COVID test that was sent out came back positive and Crystal’s came back positive. That evening The Dad was sent to the ER due to Covid then the Hospital people sent Dad home then the following Monday he went to hospital by ambulance then came home a few days later then on Memorial Day Dad went back to the hospital by ambulance once again.  Mom Crystal has gone from being a part time caregiver to a full time caregiver who cooks(well bakes mostly), cleans and cares for her Mother who hasn’t been out of the house for quite some time because her Dermatomyositus and Lupus has made her immobile.

I suppose some bright spots in all this is that Crystal’s Dad is progressing very slowly each and that she has won one big contest and some small ones too. The big contest she won the prizes were a Kindle Fire With Aleza, $150 Amazon Gift Card and a few EBooks.

We want to give a huge thanks to Ellen and “Nurse” Joanie for the Card. The picture of “Nurse” Joanie made my Human Mom smile and she loved it. It lifted her spirits greatly(which she needed might I add). Thanks to all our readers.

Crystal hopes to be back soon but is not sure when but I will pop in to post every now and then.

I’ve added some Cat pictures for Feline Friday. ENJOY!!!!
