We have two features for you this Friday. First up is Words with Webster, and then it’s on to Friendly Fill-Ins. Let’s get right to it with Webs’s kind-of-serious word.
Words with Webster: ResorptionThe Cornell Feline Health Center says that 20–60% of all cats and almost 75% of cats at least 5 years old have some resorption. No one is really sure what causes it. Resorption can become very painful. A common first sign is when a cat starts eating differently, not chewing her food, or chewing on only one side of the mouth. Tooth extraction is the only effective treatment.
I remind you to take care of your cat’s dental health this month. Teeth are important!
|Take care of your cat's dental health all year|
but especially during Pet Dental Health Month.

And now to Friendly Fill-Ins, from 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader. They are a fun way to learn a little bit about the authors of the blogs you read. The first two questions, answered by old SoLT, are from Ellen of 15andmeowing, and the next two, answered this week by Real Cat Paisley, are from Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.
Old SoLT’s answers1.Snow was a lot more fun 30 years ago (when I might get a day off school) than it is today (when I have to shovel it).
2. My favorite kind of soup is Maryland crab soup, followed closely by corn chowder.
3. When no one is around, I take lots of naps. When I’m awake and alone, I plot different ways to scare the dog.
4. My mommy is my best friend, because she picked me out from all the other kitties at that adoption event.
