The Magic of Massage Therapy

I was going through intense physical therapy to recover after surgery, and every day I went to bed with sore, achy muscles. Finally, my physical therapist suggest I give massage therapy a try. Massage therapy really helped me relax and unwind after a hard day at physical therapy, but I think it also helped speed my recovery. It helped with blood flow and circulation, and I really felt much better after every session. I liked it so much that I kept going even after I was fully recovered. I started this blog to talk about the magic of massage therapy. It really helped me, and I believe that it can really help others as well. If you’ve been wanting to learn what massage therapy is like and how it helps, you’ll find the answers here on my blog.


Cat Gone Wild: What To Do When Your Cat Won't Stop Peeing Everywhere

Having a furry friend to navigate life alongside you can be great, but things can get frustrating fast when problems begin to arise. Many cat owners struggle to deal with finding solutions to issues like soiling--is the cause of the urine frenzy a behavioral issue, a medical problem that can be fixed easily, or signs of something more serious? Additionally, how should a cat be disciplined in light of the fact that no amount of yelling or punishment seems to slow the flow? Before you act in frustration, be sure to examine all the possible angles and evidence:

Bad Cat: Behavioral Problems

Some cats just seem to wake up on the wrong side of the bed on certain days--lashing out for no reason, growling at friendly people who approach them, and soiling your favorite pair of shoes just seems to have absolutely no rhyme or reason. As much as it may seem like an angry child wanting revenge on a parent by misbehaving, there are often reasons behind your cat's actions whether you realize it or not. Before settling into the conclusion that you have a bad cat who commits evil just for the fun of it, remember to consider all other alternatives.

Avoiding the Litter Box

Ultimately, the problem might be with the litter box . Ask yourself this simple question: Is my cat avoiding the litter box for any reason that I can change or alter? Several problems could be leading to the avoidance of a litter box:

  • Do you clean the box with strong chemicals? Lasting odors could be offensive to the cat's sense of smell.
  • Is the litter box cleaned often? Many cats will not use a litter box if feces and urine has built up inside.
  • Are there any outside sources that may be frightening the cat into avoiding the litter box? For example, if another animal bothers your cat when he's trying to do his business, he may simply be too afraid to go back.

Medical Warnings

If you've considered every other alternative and still can't seem to find a solution, your cat may be warning you that there's a more serious problem at hand. Medical issues such as bladder infections, urinary tract diseases, and other painful conditions could be causing your pet to do what they normally wouldn't. Before taking your frustration out on your pet, be sure to talk to a knowledgeable veterinarian, such as those found at West Lake Animal Hospital, who can help to pinpoint the source of the problem.
