**Expected sub zero temperatures arrive this weekend, with possible significant snow totals**
For some of you, this will be the first year you have cared for cats outside during extreme cold. We want to remind everyone that cats are SMART. They have natural instincts and certain behaviors that may worry us as humans who love them. So let's talk about normal community cat behavior during weather events, and how you can help them, but also harm them unintentionally.
Wind is a huge deterrent for cats to be out and about. Add blistering cold to that and most cats will shelter in place until they need to find food/water. We need to let them do this. It is their survival instincts. Those instincts have been in place for thousands of years. We all worry about our friends outside but sometimes intervening can be a danger to the cats.
You can help them by leaving fresh water many times a day and using the same tips below.
Do not call your cats out. If they are hunkered down, there is a reason for it.
Do not put food in shelters. Cats will not sleep where there is food smell present. Every creature outdoors will be looking for resources. By placing food inside shelters, you may cause the cat to leave and look for other shelter when their normal shelter has been tainted with food smell.
Fresh water is life saving for cats. Go refresh water several times a day, if you are able.
- Also some cats may hunker down for a day or two rather than venture out - this is normal.
- If there is significant snow, take a shovel to create a path for the cats or you may need to dig them.
Mix kitten dry food with cats meals for extra calories, if possible.
Feeding at the high point of the day will give the cats the longest duration before wet food freezes.
Do not mix wet and dry food together in winter months. Dry food freezes but cats often swallow whole.
Remember ping pong balls floating in water bowls keeps the surface moving and delays freezing.
A small spoon of table sugar will also delay freezing.
Very important: Do not dump ice from water bowls at the feeding area. When ice melts, it will create dangerous wet / muddy ground, exposing cats to frigid water.

Harry is looking for his forever family! PM me or email!

Harry is a black smoke and white boy. He is very friendly, and would make a great family friend or a first time show cat.

This is the view I woke to first thing this morning. A big hefty Maine C**n girl sitting on my chest and licking my nose very aggressively so I would wake and give her scritches (and probably wanting food, tbh). Ahh Coralbell, you're such a sweet girl!

Make sure the breeder you choose to get your next family member from breeds for health, temperament, and improvement/preservation of the breed. QUALITY MATTERS.

Puppy mills are taking advantage of both people and animals with misleading websites and false claims.

Dogs or cats, please be cognizant of what you are getting. "Health tested parents" means nothing unless you know specifically what the breed and/or lines could be prone to, what tests were conducted, why, and the results of those tests. Looking for the "bargain" or cheapest pet you can find only furthers health problems and supports BYB. We aren't the cheapest available because we care about health, we care about quality, we care about temperament, we care about the longevity and future of the breed, we care about the right match between new owner and new pet. We strive to do it "right." We conduct breed specific genetic tests/screens and general health screens regularly.

Responsible breeding and owning of multiple cats, dogs, or horses is a lifestyle and commitment many fail to understand. 7 days a week, 365 days a year our lives revolve around our animals. Too much truth here not to share.

HOW MUCH FOR A KITTEN?
Let me say some words to you, yes to you, the person who just inboxed to ask for the price. The person who calls and says surprisingly after hearing a price: "I can buy a cheaper kitten somewhere else." I’m talking to you too; the person who doesn’t care about papers because I “just want a pet”.
No cat is “just a pet”.
Behind every purebred kitten is a BREEDER. I use capital letters to tell a breeder from a pet factory or mill. A reputable breeder does not breed cats without papers, which does not protect the integrity of the breed. Registrations (papers) are genealogy records that document the bloodline and enable one to investigate possible health issues in the lineage. When you tell a breeder that you are not interested in papers, you are really telling them that you are less interested in the kitten's health, and just want the cheapest you can find! When you buy a kitten from a reputable and high quality breeder, this breeder is responsible for the health of each kit. This breeder skips holidays, misses sleeping in, and has converted most of his personal home space into space for his cats. Truly passionate breeder who loves what he breeds, puts all his heart and soul into it. Not just with kittens sold, but with every customer who has a piece of their heart and is now a member of their extended family. Breeders take care of their babies after they leave and take them back without question.
A breeder will get their hands “dirty”, often burdened with everything that comes with birth. 'Cause thats what life is all about... Between birth and death is life. The wheel that keeps turning. A breeder conducts tests, x-rays, analysis, emergency surgery, vaccinations, littering, pedigree, deworming and microchips for his kittens and gets them evaluated by specialists.
Last but not least, a breeder chooses the family that is lucky enough to have one of their kittens. Yes, you read that right. A real breeder chooses who he sells to because he doesn’t make money from the sale. There is no compensation that can compensate for the investments made by a breeder. So they need to make sure they fit correctly. They say no more often than yes... A good breeder has different criteria for those who want to further their bloodline. Why? Since breeding isn't a responsibility to ever be taken lightly, it's a lifestyle choice reserved ONLY for the few dedicated people willing to sacrifice.
Because a cat is never "just a pet", it is the breeder's legacy, a little boy's best friend, a protector of little girls, a therapy for the elderly, a family member, someone's whole world!!!

Worth the share with so much truth in this article, not only as it applies to kittens but dogs, horses, and retired adults (dogs or cats) as well.
