Cat | Safety Checklists | Caterpillar

Practicing Christmas safety with cats involves not only safeguarding your home and protecting your cat, but also looking out for the needs of your friends and family. If someone is coming to town for the week and has a cat allergy, it’s only civil and polite to remind them that your cats have the run of the house. That way, they can make other lodging arrangements as needed, and everyone’s Christmas celebrations will be that much merrier.

The mission of SAFE Haven for Cats is to use no-kill principles and education to save cats’ lives through rescue, adoption, spay/neuter services and community programs.Three different collars were used for the study—plastic buckle collars, breakaway plastic buckle safety collars, and elastic stretch safety collars. A total of 558 cats (and 338 owners) participated in the study. Each cat was randomly assigned one of the 3 collars. The collar, a microchip tag, and a microchip were all applied to the cat at the start of the study. Guardians were contacted after 1 week, then 1 month, and then monthly until the study's end (6 months after the intervention).When it comes to protecting your cat from fleas, heartworms, roundworms, hookworms and ear mites,* REVOLUTION® (selamectin) is as safe as it is effective.Winky In 1982 JC Whitney Catalog

I wanted Winky for my car, to keep me safe with his soft fluffiness and his acrylon-like fur. But I was young and foolish, worried about image. What would my friends think? Could I blast Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables on the cassette and still sport Winky in the back window, all the while keeping some semblance of coolness? Sadly, a victim of teenage peer pressure, I couldn't bring myself to buy Winky. A few years later, JC Whitney stopped carrying him. Winky was no more.

Now, 25 years later, I realize that all is not lost. Yeah, I can't buy Winky (not a real one, anyway), but I can make my own! First, the ground rules for this project:

1. The stuffed animal to be used as the basis for the project must be some sort of feline (no skunks, sharks, lemurs, etc).

2. I must obtain all the necessary parts during one trip to the thrift store and one trip to the junkyard.

3. My Winkyesque Safety Cat must be removable (i.e., not hardwired to the car), so it may be transferred from car to car.
