Let’s give kitty equal consideration on today’s ‘National Holistic Pet Day.’ If you have a cat who uses all the wood in your home as their personal scratching post, then put a pinch of chili sauce there. The smell of the spice will keep the cat away while your Feng Shui Fortune Mouse plays. You need only to rub a little of the sauce on the wood and then buff it off in order to keep cats away. If you have an older male cat who is experiencing urinary problems (always consult your vet in regard to any pet advice), treat this problem holistically by adding one teaspoon of white vinegar to the cat’s water. This will help to prevent the formation of stones and potentially high cost remedies and treatments. Likewise, a diet of low-ash cat food also helps this urinary agenda. Alternative advice also says that mothballs should be put between cushions to keep the cat off the couch. Lastly, if your cat comes home with a few scratches to show for his night out, then clean the wounds with warm water before breaking open a Vitamin E capsule and squeezing the oil directly onto the affected area. Just add more if the cat licks the oil off — it can’t hurt him. Go ahead and try these tips as I think they’re the cat’s meow!
