Without being able to reference any objective, scientific sources, I would propose wrapping the squeaker in several layers of fabric. Kevlar is certainly extremely resistant to cuts and tears, but it does not resist being punctured by things like needles or canine teeth. Though the two terms are sometimes confused, cut resistance and puncture resistance are ...

The main concern here should not be the weight, but attachment. When putting a collar on a cat, one should make sure to get one that has a safety unlock feature that opens the collar by weight, and that it is properly set for the cats weight. Collars without this feature pose a significant danger, as the collar might get caught on a fence or strong branch of ...

You say these kittens are in an "empty room in your house." How long have they been there? (How long have you been ignoring this room?) Is there a clear area where the mother can come and go that you have not blocked recently? It's possible the mother has been prevented from returning; these are very young kittens who would not yet be left by the ...

It is SAFE for your cat and there is no evidence that would suggest otherwise. According to www.scmp.com: “Samples collected from the cat and the dog by the department tested positive for the Covid-19 virus. However, neither of the animals has shown any symptoms at present. The AFCD will continue to closely monitor them and conduct repeated testing.” Now, ...

Explosion is obviously an urban legend. I never heard of such a thing before. But Roborovski hamsters are adapted to similar pressures as humans and other mammals so there is no reason to assume that slightly lower pressure in airplanes might cause anything more than a discomfort to hamsters. Hamsters have a very high rate of metabolism so you need to put ...

Your cat loves to climb. You stated that when you said My cat loves to climb my TV counter. Maybe you could consider getting him a cat tower/tree for him to climb on? It will prevent him from getting shocked and distract him from the counter. According to Armarkat.com, Cat trees are a great way to distract felines who would rather climb and scratch the ...

First we need to clarify, what is exactly in the bottled water: To make it sparkle, the companies add CO2 gas. (In some dwells this gas was taken by the water, when dropping through the different layers of soil/stone). As long as the water is under pressure, this gas is dissolved in the water. Only around 0.2%[1][3] of this dissolved CO2 will react with the ...
