Hi it’s Charly, KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady & avid dog lover. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or touring a dog-friendly vineyard. >^..^<
Fireworks & firecrackers are terrifying to animals. The noise is painful, lights are blinding & energy is anxiety-producing. After July 4th is when the MOST dogs & cats turn up missing, and shelters become overrun, with many never re-claimed.
KEEP PETS INSIDE before neighborhood fireworks/firecrackers start up.
In the backyard, they can jump over fences they can't normally reach. Even inside, they've been known to break windows by jumping out in fear.
Some products that help keep my dogs & cats calm during periods of chaos:
1 - Spirit Essence Stress Stopper or Bach Rescue Remedy - a few drops in water bowls, in food, on ear tips and even mixed with water and spritzed on bedding & fur. * Bonus: Human Grade Quality - these take the edge off people's anxiety, too!
2 - Thundershirts - Sasha & Brooklyn model theirs during #stormageddon last year.
3 - Sound machine or radio (like96.5KOIT) played softly, to mask outside sounds.
4 - Lavender essentialoil mixed with water and spritzed in the air and on bedding.
Good for New Year's Eve & Chinese New Year + Thunderstorms too!
Welcome to the newly remodeled Lucky Supermarket at 6834 Mission St in Daly City. I was "lucky" to be there for the Grand Opening today of this brand new concept store called "California Lucky", focused on fresh, healthy & LOCAL.
Of course, I quickly found the Sake Tasting of Sho Chiku Bai from Takara Sake out of Berkeley, CA. Yay, we have a sake brewery right here in the Bay Area!
Can you believe this is a supermarket? Check out the Kitchenware Dept.
The colorful tableware! And... just ONE more taste of sake.
This brave kitty inside a home near Boulder, CO stood strong protecting the family, when this majestic mountain lion stopped by. Note 2nd cat in foreground checking out the scene, as husband tells wife the kids are are "out back" in video below. (Courtesy Tom Mabe.)
Notice the Keurig coffee maker hanging by it's plug from the kitchen counter?
That's the result of Sasha being upset that I took Brooklyn to the beach without her, so was trying to get to the back of the counter where the peanut butter jar was to show her displeasure. But the thing is, the only reason I took Brooklyn without her is because I had just brought her back from the beach.
Yes, she had JUST come back from here. But didn't want him going here.
So got her revenge with this. But how can you really get mad at this?
The NEW peanut butter jar stays safely inside an upper cabinet!
