What happens if honey gets in your eyes?

You just rush to the tap and wash it off or better yet if you happen to have warm water nearby the better, it makes the honey soften and easy to clean off. Honey is acidic and could give you a pink eye if you don't wash it off immediately. Make sure you use lots of water but don't rub your eyes too hard, just softly to allow it to flow without force (assuming its not a whole jar in your eye).

Is there a home remedy cat repellent?

Yes, there are. Many cats do not like the smell of citrus, so citrus oil, orange or lemon peel or even citrus juice can help repel cats. Oils and juice can be rubbed on surfaces such as doorways, while simply scattering citrus peel outside your home is said to be effective in some cases.

What are white worms in the cat's feces and how do you treat them?

The symptoms of roundworms in adult cats are very similar to tapeworms. In kittens vomiting, diarrhea, dull coats, a pot belly on a thin body, and weakness are symptoms of roundworm. It is a good idea to get your kitten checked for roundworm by your vet, as it can cause serious illness in kittens.

Your vet will prescribe a dewormer, and it may have to be repeated several times before the roundworms are gone. Ascarid eggs are very resistant, so during the treatment litter should be scooped daily and litter pans washed with hot water and detergent regularly. Throw out the litter and disinfect the boxes before the end of the treatment

How does catnip work?

If you mean on cats: It has an aromatic oil which is like alcohol to a cat but the cat only has to sniff it and it kind of makes the cat drunk. Also the aromatic oil makes it addictive to cats.

How was kitty litter invented?

In the "olden days," litter boxes were homemade affairs, and the substrate used was anything at hand that the cat might dig into and use. Sand was popular if it could be easily sourced; garden dirt was a natural - after all, most cats were indoors-outdoors, and that is where they usually "did their business. Shredded newspaper was another.

Then, in the late 1940s, Edward Lowe, a young man who worked in his dad's company, which sold industrial absorbents, gave a neighbor a supply of an absorbent called Fuller's Earth to replace the ashes she was using in her cat's litter box. She was so "sold" on the clay that Lowe started marketing it as "Kitty Litter," first through pet stores, then by going to cat shows and cleaning cat boxes in exchange for a booth to market his product. "Kitty Litter" became immensely popular and a new industry was born.

Soil

How can you remove mold from the dirt in your garden?

It may be a type of soil fungus which thrive on both dead and decaying matter in the soil and too wet conditions. Over-watering can make it worse. Try to aerate the soil as much as possible and improve the drainage. It most likely will not harm plants, although seedlings would be more vulnerable.

If by mold you mean cottony white threads in the soil or fuzzy colonies, especially in places with deeply layered plant detritus, then you do not want to remove them. They, collectively, are the saprotrophic fungi. Saprotrophs, decompose plant matter, where most of the carbon in terrestrial ecosystems is sequestered. They do not photosynthesize instead they grow on dead or dying material breaking it down into molecular components. Fungal respiration returns much of this carbon to the atmosphere as CO2. Plants in turn take the CO2 and sunshine to create carbohydrates. The nitrogen and minerals are held by they fungi. Many fungi enter directly into a symbiosis with plants exchanging the retained nutrients and growth hormones directly for the plants carbohydrates. Trees in temperate forests are dependent on the fungi that accumulate minerals from the decomposing litter, before the minerals pass into the deeper layers of the soil where they would be unavailable to the roots. This exchange can enhance a plant chances of survival five fold. Plants give some 10- 25% of the growing seasons photosynthetically fixed carbon dioxide back to the soil microorganisms through the roots, as carbohydrate exudates. The reason appears that in exchange they are joined to the underground network of fungal hyphae that reaches between plants and much farther than the plants root system. This hyphal net supports and protects its host plants. Many of these fungi protect there host from pathogens and are our original sources for antibiotics.

Keep in mind that what may appear to be mold might actually be a BENEFICIAL FUNGUS, which resembles gray/white 'root extensions'. A great catch-all for fungi, bacteria, algae & viruses is a product called PHYSAN 20. Its inexpensive & effective.

What if my cat licks off the frontline top spot?

Answer Cat can't lick off medYour cat can't lick off the medicine if you place it in the correct spot which is between his shoulder blades. Maybe you should talk to your vet also.

Another great spot is right at the base of the cat's skull. This is where my vet told me to apply it. If you have multiple cats, keep them separated for a few hours until the product is dry to keep them from grooming it off of each other. Though, the product has a very bitter taste so the cat may not want to lick that spot very much :)

Im frustrated here! People can have more than one cat, thus allowing A cat to lick the frontline of another cat even if it is placed correctly!!! Heads out of butts Please!!

People who say cats can't lick medicine off the shoulder blade area must have never watched a cat lick itself. They will lick their paw and wipe any area they cannot reach with their tongue. Then they lick the paw again, which has the Frontline on it, and repeat. Otherwise, cats would have dirty heads, and they don't. So, about the Frontline-----since every cat is going to lick it off, cats would be dying in the hundreds of thousands if this was a problem. Frontline is not systemically active. It collects in the oil glands and kills fleas and ticks, not cats. If a cat licks a whole lot quickly, the bad taste may cause increased salivation. You also see this drooling when pilling a cat with a bitter-tasting antibiotic. This does not mean the cat has been poisoned. Give it something to drink and it will be fine. I suppose there is the rare case of a cat having an allergic response to it. I once had a cat that scratched for a whole month after using Frontline, and I had to substitute Advantage. But other than that, don't worry about it, and don't use another pipette because you think the cat has licked it all off. I assure you that enough got into the cat's skin to work for a month.

How do you stop cats from going bathroom in potted plants?

well first of all is your cat an outside or ever was an outside cat?if there used to going outside they'll look for that same type of ground to go potty on... just be glad hes not going on your favorite curtain or shirt,lol. what i would do is put potting soil in your litter box then slowly put more and more litter in. this way he starts off with the potting soil and graduates.unless he goes in both litter box and potted plant. If your cat has gone to the bathroom in your potted plant remove that plant and replace the dirt so there is no sign of urine. The cat will most likely contiue going to the bathroom where they can still smell it. Also spraying the plant with products like Keep Off or Boundry with keep them away from certain areas. Lastly use Cat Attract Litter in their litter box to help bring them back to where they were suppose to be going in the first place. They also make an attractant you can add to their litter too.

Cat Behavior

What could have happened to your cat to make it totally go crazy and try to attack you after never doing anything mean to him?

Certain times of the year a cat can slick it's ears back, go absolutley bonkers and appear that is attacking you, but they are generally frisky. They may even try to give you a quick nip (I call them love bites) but don't take any type of this behavior from your cat. I give my cat a flip on the nose with my fingers to let her know I'm not happy. Remember, you're the boss of your house and not your cat! The above is correct, however if there are any other odd things your cat is doing you may consider a vet appointment. Things like foaming and acting rabid could be an indicator of mental issues. However it probably is just friskyness, some cats just sometimes like to start fights for no reason also. AnswerSome cats can get really over sensitive if you stroke their tummies for too long. I read that it's because it becomes a kind of hyper sensitive sexual signal for them (nipples...) and they just got to make you stop! None of my boys are bothered by it but one of my girls really doesn't like having her tummy touched; she'll put up with it for a little while if she's sleepy but there's one particular spot that makes her do her "attack cat" thing - she's very good though and just grabs my hand with her front paws and has a quick gnaw at me. I'm wondering if some queens get the same after effects from spaying as some women do: adhesions can make your belly really tender and I can't help but think we'd like to do a slash & bite thing occasionally!

One sign of just attacking out of nowhere is that, if you adopted the pet from a shelter, maybe he was beaten while living with his previous owner. Or, he wasn't taken care of properly and is overly sensitive. That might be one reason.

Naaahh - Cats just get ticked off sometimes and there is no way to know why. Sometimes they are just playing rough and sometimes they want to attack. Cats are what they are: cute, arrogant, playful, and terrors. Mine used to wait at the bottom of the stairs and out of the blue he would bite my ankles. Ten minutes later, he would be rubbing up against them. Try and understand a cat and you will make yourself crazy!

cats need a lot of stimulation, play with them, make sure they have toys and things to do while you are away from home. set aside time just for your cat, before work, when you get home and before bed. if you cant afford to buy toys, make some. a ball of tin foil can entertain my cat for hours, wash an old make-up brush and play with them, or put catnip in a sock..my cat lets me know when hes bored by attacking, try playing 'fetch' with your cat. also, try playing 'hide and seek'. hide around a corner and peek out once in a while, let him see you doing this and he/she will stalk and chase you. this appeals to their natural instinct to hunt and will allow him to feel like he can 'attack'.

How do you keep a window active when it is minimized?

This is a very general question for a problem that has many answers. Programs that you would like to run in the background need to have an option somewhere in their configuration menu or options menu in order to change whether it will be active or not while the window itself is inactive. As far as I know, the only way you can change this manually is for you to be a programmer and do this yourself somehow (I am learning, but I have no idea as of now). So, depending on what program it is you want to run while inactive, you need to look through the configuration/options files, looking for options such as "Pause program while inactive?". That's about it, though.

Instead of buying diet food can you buy similar food that is not as expensive?

Yes there is. It is called smart ones and you can find them anywhere and they are not pricey. I have a breakfast bar(im not a breakfast person), a smart ones meal that is 300 calories or less for lunch, a 100 calorie snack, and a 300 calorie meal for dinner. You can add veggies if you would like. And they also have desserts that are wonderful too....I recommend the chocolate chip sundae.......I have lost 17 lbs. It is slow going but it follows the Jenny Craig and Weight watchers almost exact. Oh also I love to swim so it never feels like I'm working out...just extra advice! Always remember, reduced intake plus increased activity = weight loss.
