Standing/Hanging birdbath

Here at SuperCoolPets we love our birds. Not only the sweet cockatiels who live with us, but also the wild(er) ones who live nearby and visit our feeders. I was taught to "feed the birds" by my grandmother as a toddler and have loved them ever since. In those days, we just threw the seed on the ground and the birds pecked around. We will have more on bird feeders in later posts.

birdbaths fit any budget--they range from $13 or so to more pricey. We have found this exquisite and affordable Opus Standing/Hanging birdbath . The bath is fluted metal 14.5" in diameter and can be hung from a hook or tree branch. Or if you prefer mount the bath on the beautiful detailed-leaf stand.

Rust resistant finish.Includes hanging hardware and ground spike. Looks delicate so treat with TLC! Opus Standing/Hanging birdbath sold by Picnic World Plus.

Add a Water Wiggler to circulate water in your birdbath--no wiring, easy!

Days Ago Digital Day Counter--Never Guess Again!

uses_pet.jpg


Great idea! Days Ago Digital Day Counter is a digital day counter that attaches to a variety of surfaces with a magnetic or suction backing and counts up to 99 days to track the age of the item. This has almost an infinite amount of uses in our daily routines, but as applies to pet care: for medications such as heartworm, earmites & flea; litter box changes, cage cleaning, grooming and so on. Your imagination is the limit. I know this will be on my gift list!

Understand Your Pets--Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior

dtb826_c.jpg

Ever wonder what your pets are saying and thinking? Haven't we all?

Super Cool Pets found this fascinating study, Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior by Temple Grandin, to be an eye-opener:

Among its provocative ideas, the book:

*argues that language is not a requirement for consciousness -- and that animals do have consciousness

*applies the autism theory of "hyper-specificity" to animals, showing that animals and autistic people are so sensitive to detail that they "can't see the forest for the trees" -- a talent as well as a "deficit"

*explores the "interpreter" in the normal human brain that filters out detail, leaving people blind to much of the reality that surrounds them -- a reality animals and autistic people see, sometimes all too clearly...

*maintains that the single worst thing you can do to an animal is to make it feel afraid.

Recommended read for any animal lover who wishes to understand pets better. Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior

Avoid Expensive Veterinary Bills--Insure Your Pet

Pet Health Insurance For Cats & Dogs

When our pup, Jessie, was 1-1/3 years old, she lost the ability to open her jaw. Lockjaw, one would automatically think. To make a long story short--no, she has masticular myosits. She could still eat, so was surviving.Golden Retrievers love to carry things in their mouth--not a good situation for any pooch. Our vet was stumped and referred us to the vet specialists in our area. They charge at least $1,000 to say hello. But they did diagnose Jessie and put her on prednisone which saved her life.

The point of this story is that we did NOT have health insurance. We spent lots of money on Jessie, and perhaps could have saved some with an insurance plan. A family we know spent thousands on their black poodle suffering from repeated bouts with bloat (twisted stomach), a life-threatening condition that eventually did cost the poodle his life at 6 years old.

If you are considering pet insurance, it is available from QuickCare Pet Insurance.
