A Few Home Remedies For Cats

Katzenworld

Home remedies for humans are increasingly popular, but few people realize that there are many effective home remedies for cats too. If your furry friend is sick, it may be possible to help them without resorting to medications. If your cat has one of these conditions, consider trying a home remedy.

Fleas are a common pest that any cat who goes outside or comes into contact with other animals may pick up. Though certain essential oils can repel fleas, it is important not to put them on your cat because a cat may become sick after ingesting the essential oils while licking their fur. Instead, try using a collar made with amber beads. An amber collar is not just a cute accessory, it actually releases aromatic terpines that repel both fleas and ticks. You can also brush your cat’s coat with a diluted mixture of coconut oil every couple…

How to train your cat to like the cat carrier

#cats #catlovers

Katzenworld

Introduction
Many cats disappear at the sight of their cat carrier and even if their owner is able to get them into it, their cat often makes it quite clear it is not finding the experience pleasant. Difficulties getting cats into their carriers can result in owner reluctance to visit the vets which can consequently lead to reduced preventative healthcare, delayed diagnosis of disease, and ultimately reduced quality of life. In addition, if an owner is physically forcing their cat into its carrier, there is the potential for the cat to start to view the owner negatively with a resultant breakdown in the cat-owner bond. Having a cat comfortable with travel in its cat carrier will make trips to the vets, and other locations such as boarding catteries much easier, and the cat will not arrive already anxious or fearful from the journey.

Palm oil expansion: Greenpeace report reveals devastating impact of IOI environmental violations

CHANGING TIMES

IOI oil palm plantation

A new Greenpeace report says the impact of deforestation and peatland drainage on palm oil concessions owned by the Malaysian company IOI far exceeds that referred to in the complaint to the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) that led to the company’s suspension.

The RSPO suspended IOI for conducting peatland clearance in violation of the organisation’s principles, and being in breach of other environmental safeguards.

The suspension of the IOI group’s RSPO certification became effective as of April 4, 2016. It applies to the entire group, including its plantation division and its trading arm, IOI Loders Croklaan, which is based in the Netherlands.

The complaint against the group was filed in April 2015 by the Amsterdam-based, not-for-profit consultancy Aidenvironment and related to three IOI subsidiaries: PT Bumi Sawit Sejahtera, PT Sukses Karya Sawit, and PT Berkat Nabati Sawit.

Aidenvironment accused IOI of breaching RSPO standards and its own environmental…

11 Alternatives to Amazon for Online Holiday Shopping

Please share! Thank you 🙂

With the holidays around the corner, you are likely starting to think about ways to appreciate friends and family by giving them a gift. Like many Americans—if you choose to purchase gifts—you are likely to buy some online. Consumer surveys indicate 46 percent of Americans plan to shop online this year. Amazon.com is the world’s largest retailer and is synonymous with online shopping. Over 40 percent of online shoppers in the U.S. turn to Amazon as their first stop.
