Did you know that your cat's stomach is only about the size of a quarter? Of course, this is before it is filled with food and expands. Many experts have argued about what is the proper amount to feed your cat. You want to be sure not to overfeed. Although a few tablespoons of food may be enough for your cat, some people say that you need to feed your cat more. For about an average sized cat, a half of a 12 ounce can should be enough. However, you don’t necessarily need to measure out how much, as most cats will only eat until they are satisfied. Feeding your cat twice a day is plenty. You can allow your cat about 15-20 minutes to eat. Start by scooping out a few tablespoons, and if she devours that, add small amounts of food until she is full.

It is best to keep your pets indoor during the cold winter months. However, if this is not possible, it is important to keep them safe. Since the outside temperatures are dropping, be sure to replace any metal water dishes with plastic ones. Besides the water having a higher risk of coming frozen, your pet's tongue can stick to the metal causing your pet some agony.

For most pet owners, pet nail trimming is not something to look forward to. Most people are scared to trim their pet's nails with traditional nail cutters because they fear they may cut too close to the quick. Especially if you have a pet with black nails, it is almost impossible to know exactly where to cut. Nail trimming is not something most pets enjoy, judging by how most animals react to nail cutting. However, with the Pedi-Paws nail trimmer, it safely and gently trims your pet's nails without the mess. I have a small Dachshund that I used this on, and it worked great. It gave my pet a smooth finish instead of a jagged edge that other nail clippers give. Of course, not all pets will welcome this nail trimmer with open paws. It may take some coercing before your pet will let you trim his nails. I would highly recommend this system to any pet lover! It works on cats too!
