Just a Couple of Things...
Today was National Hairball Awareness Day. For many of us, we're only too well aware of it, especially during Spring and Fall when shedding is at its peak thanks to the change of weather. I tend to look like Aimee's biological mother when she's shedding, awash in blue fur.
There are some things you can do to help. Brush and comb your cat or dog daily if he or she sheds. If you have a short-haired dog, use a chamois on the coat to catch that extra hair. There will still be shedding but it will be less. This is especially important for cats since they are so meticulous about cleaning themselves and the more hair there is for them to swallow, the more hairballs they'll hack up.
On another note, the new film, Shelter Me, was released on Red Box three days ago. http://www.redbox.com/movies/shelter-me We'll be reviewing it now but don't wait for my review. Rent it now. Why? Because during the first week, if you rent the film from Red Box ALL profits from the first week's rentals will go to Ellen DeGeneres' Halo Pet Foundation. Do yourself and some homeless pets a favor. If you were planning to rent a movie, make it this one. Even if you weren't make an exception, rent the film, and help some homeless pets.
