If Your Cat Is Blind

It is difficult to argue with the fact that the animal in the family – a joy and a host of other positive emotions. And of course, any owner wants to his four-legged friend lived as long as possible in good health and harmony. I want this and I whose companion for life (do not want to call themselves owner or owner) is already over 18, 5 years is a nice kitty, hereditary "aristocrat" of a natural three-color color. But, unfortunately, time inevitably tends to life dear to me being the sunset and it is impossible not to recognize. Over the last year has changed life significantly decreased activity arrived illness. Particularly saddened by my actions resulting from intraocular hemorrhage blindness Briefly describe the symptoms of this phenomenon, because many cats in adulthood suffer high blood pressure and at any moment can go blind. Cat starts to walk in a circle, bumps into objects, losing orientation, it becomes very restless.

Pupils dilated and not responsive to changing light flux. In the depths of the eye (fundus) is not even the naked eye traces hemorrhage. Cat may refuse to eat and drink. The most important thing in this situation – do not panic, but try as soon as possible to contact your veterinarian in order to prevent stroke and other severe consequences of elevated intracranial pressure. That, in principle, and I did – a veterinarian appointed diuretics and supportive drugs.

Of course, my experience does not pass, and tears dimmed his eyes, seeing as trying to move on apartment cat. Need time to cat adapted to new conditions of life. And then your caring and concern for the four-footed family member would be most welcome. First of all try to protect a cat of any shocks, and create the most comfortable to move about the apartment. After a while the cat will remember their main "highway", which means that it goes always be free. Try not to rearrange furniture and do not clutter aisles things – cats are very difficult to quickly adjust their routes. It is especially important to remember that in this state cat could easily fall from a height and hitting. And this in turn could trigger a new attack and new hemorrhage. Be careful! Do not leave the cat alone, for example, if a routine custom, she drinks from the sink in the bathroom or you put her on one of the shelves cabinet. Now, after six months, my animal is already quite mastered, the appetite has recovered, the cat jumps on the couch alone, where they are accustomed to sleep, returned to the habit of drinking running water from the sink. And I want to believe that despite their age, blindness, join her and deafness, my pet for many years will delight us with his presence in this world. And so I'll try to give it a dignified old age.

Moving An Aquarium

I recently had to deal with moving from one apartment to another. And had to carry his stolitrovy aquarium. Some people said I was sick on the head, once assembled to transport the fish. But I do not think so, I just do not willing to part with their favorite somami and vualehvostami. Moving an aquarium – fully realized thing, you just have to think of ways all their actions. I'll tell you how I did it. First, I took care of the water, and asked transport capacity with otstoinoy water into a new apartment. As a temporary aquarium, I had a quarantine, heater and aerator for it too be.

Transporting fish, I decided in the special packets that are bought pet store. Should remember that armor Som need to be transported separately from other fish to catfish are not caused injury to his "armor". Should not be put off catching fish on the last day, it's better to do it in advance. Catch fish in karantinnik, water discharge, drying equipment, etc. – All this can take a very long time.

On the last day you can leave only the procedure for packing fish in bags. When you pack things for the move, do not Repack the equipment that you may useful: net, feed bags and bottles, elastic bands, towel, knife, tape, etc. To a new apartment, I am the fish, plants and stock went first, when longshoremen hauled our belongings into the car. Just had to heat the water and run fish in the aquarium, before their arrival. My aquarium, I then took the old apartment two days later. As you can see, the pledge of successful relocation aquarium – it's simple, but a premeditated action.


Timer. To enable or disable the light in Aquarium is convenient to use a timer. Once the preset timer, each day will include on and off lights automatically. 7. Scraper. To clean the glass of algae you will need a scraper. Aquarium made their Plexiglas can only use the magnetic scraper, metal scraper as you can scratch the glass.

Siphon. To clear the ground, which eventually becomes clogged and typically use a siphon. Hear other arguments on the topic with Sam Mikulak. 9. Net.

Net used for catching fish from the aquarium, when they need to be transported or treated. 10. Feeder. To feed does not spread across the surface tank to use the feeder. 11. Scissors. For Periodic thinning of plants need a knife or scissors. 12. Sponge or foam rubber. Filter, aerators, feeders, and the thermometer will need to periodically, at least once a month (filter sponges usually) rinsed under the tap when using a piece of foam rubber. 13. Bucket. To drain the dirty water through a siphon, in principle, fit any bucket that is used in agriculture. But for the preparation of fresh water is better to allocate a separate bucket. 14. Otsadnik. For the treatment may and spawning need a separate tank of small size. Better think about it beforehand. 15. Tests. Often, in order to understand why plants or fish unwell must apply the tests of water parameters. Would not be amiss, if you’ll periodically check the water parameters, then we will avoid many problems. 16. Lake. Fresh water in the aquarium you’ll pour from the bucket, otherwise the whole landscape of the aquarium deteriorate even could be affected fish. For this is good to use a watering can with a perforated spout. You can do without watering cans, and pour water from a cup on a plate lowered into the aquarium. 17. Silicone. Of course, you can buy silicone when it is need for bonding or isolation. But if you plan to do an underwater design, you can buy a small tube of silicone in advance. Example of the use of silicone can be found in my blog. 18. Stones. In advance, when you just had an idea to start an aquarium, gather at the river or the beach! The best stones. Aquarium bottom can be bought at a pet store, but the original natural stones of larger size there is a mass applications in the aquarium. 19. Suckers. I advise you to pre-buy you a few suckers from the rings, they also find application. With their help, the aquarium will be to fix anything and whatever. 20. Another. During the service aquarium have to dream and to find solutions for different types of problems. You may need a bottle, gum, bags, tubing, fishing line and much more, you name it. The main thing to remember that immersed in an aquarium the subject must be washed and not be dangerous for fish.
