Putts, Pars & Paws

Hi All,

SAVE – THE – DATE & MARK YOUR CALENDARS! For those who enjoys fun-filled events which benefits our furry little friends in a big way…  11th Hour Rescue will be hosting their 6th annual event.

Golf outing A Golf Outing Organized by Eleventh Hour Rescue

June 17, 2013 Eleventh Hour Rescue will be hosting our 6th Annual Dog Day Afternoon Golf Outing, “Putts, Pars & Paws” at Stanton Ridge Country Club in Whitehouse Station, NJ.  The day’s events will be followed by our “Sit, Stay & Spend” Buffet Dinner and Silent Auction.

Eleventh Hour Rescue is a not-for-profit 501c3 animal rescue made up of incredibly devoted volunteers that all share a common link, pure love for animals.  The volunteers of our organization pour their hearts, souls and resources into rescuing animals and finding them new and forever homes.  Our group will rescue pets without discrimination of breed, age or medical status from all over the country at the “eleventh hour” when they are scheduled to be put to death by high kill shelters that can no longer care for them.

The diligent commitment of our volunteers provoke tireless efforts in attempt to locate loving homes for the abandoned animals that have been given a second chance at life.  While providing exceptional care and compassion to the many homeless dogs and cats in our possession, we will simultaneously organize events to raise money for the continuation of the mission…”until all the cages are empty”.

Eleventh Hour Rescue is completely volunteer based and is exclusively funded by donations.  We will graciously accept any donation that your budget will allow.

Will you please consider participating in our event.  It is certain to be a good time and your contribution will help save a life!

Advice on clipping Cat’s Claws

Ti-Rat, Montreal born red cat, showing his cla...

See my claws

I was asked for advice on how to clip Cat’s claws

This was an excellent question, for the simple fact many Cat owners are afraid to do it. So here’s my take on how.

Response to question~

Glad you asked…. after I get Sox settled on my lap and praising him to no end. I gently hold his paws using both my hands, his reaction to this is to relax his paws… while he’s in this blissful trance I proceed to gingerly massage his paws.  Switching off to one hand while the other hand gets the clippers ready, keeping him distracted (so I think). With the hand I used to continue the messaging, I now use it to softly press on his paw, your Cat’s response to this will be his or hers claws coming forward no longer retracted.

Closely examine the claws (it’s best to do this in a well lighted area) if you do, you will be able to see the veins within each claw, quickly clip away from the vein… never clip at the vein, your Cat’s claw will bleed if done. Then repeat the process 9 more times (if you’re only doing the front paws per cat) for me it’s more like 27 times

After the clipping of the claws, I kindly reward the little Babies with treats for allowing me to clip their claws. I hope this helped.

A final note if anyone should ever cut into their Cat’s vein, you could use a product to stop the bleeding such as Kwik-Stop Powder…

I keep it on hand just in case, I’ve never cut into one of my Cats veins… however Cats move very fast, and anything could happen. See link for more info http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=2995. It may also help to keep your Veterinary’s number programmed in both your home and cell phones.

Purr you later ^-^
