Have you ever told your Cat, “Let’s Go For A Walk!”

We want to take our cats for walks outside. They seem to be terrified to go out doors.
I found this article that explains how to accommodate your cat and get him/her use
to the outdoor environment.

Why should dogs have all the fun? Many indoor cats would love to go outside and
enjoy the sun but it is often far too dangerous to let them simply wander about as they
please. Busy roads, large dogs and careless people are hazards many of us don’t want our
cats exposed to. So why not teach him to walk on a leash?

But cats don’t walk on leashes! That’s the sentiment many people have when the
idea is first introduced. It’s true that some cats will absolutely have nothing to do with the
whole business. They apparently think it is entirely beneath them to be seen out of doors
on a leash. What would the neighbors think! Fortunately, there are other cats willing to
entertain the idea and some who actually come to like their walks. There really isn’t any
way of knowing which way your cat will turn out unless you try. Let’s get started.

The first thing you will need is a properly fitting harness and a light weight leash.
It doesn’t need to be fancy, just sturdy and well made. Trying to teach your cat with only
a collar is not a good idea. Pressure around their necks seems to make some cats freeze.
You want to teach him to move forward, not lock in place. The second thing you will
need is a bag of treats. Preferably something he really likes but doesn’t often get. The
third thing you will need is lots and lots of patience.

Begin training inside your home. Do not take him outside until he is walking
freely and comfortably along with you on his leash. Place the harness on your cat and let
him get accustomed to it. If your cat is particularly timid, you might want to leave the
harness where he can investigate it and get used to seeing it first before you put it on him.
Leave the harness on him for ten to fifteen minutes a day for the first few days. After that
the period can be raised to fifteen to twenty minutes. Give him one or two treats during
the time he is wearing the harness so that he associates it with good things. When he is
fully comfortable with the harness, add the leash in the same manner, allowing him to
drag it around for a slowly increasing period over several days. Don’t forget the treats.

By now, your cat is comfortable wearing both harness and leash. Pick up the end
of the leash and just hold it. Don’t try to lead him anywhere. Follow him around if he
moves. Do this exercise for a few minutes a day until he is comfortable with it. Now
comes the big step, teaching him to follow where you lead. Place your cat to your left
side, your leash should be in your left hand. Let your arm hang relaxed at your side. Take
a treat in your right hand. Turn toward your cat and show him the treat. Now take a
couple of step forward, continuing to show the treat. If he follows you, take a couple of
more steps. If he follows to your new position, give him his treat and praise. If he is
reluctant to move forward, place the treat closer to him. Praise him if he takes a step
forward and give him the treat. If he doesn’t want to move forward no matter what you
do, don’t drag him. Pick him up and take him somewhere else to take his harness off. Do
not give him a treat since he didn’t do as you asked. Here is where patience comes in.
Keep repeating the lesson every day, asking him to move farther each time.

When your cat is walking freely on leash with you all over the house, take him
into your back yard and walk him around in it. If he freezes and refuses to move, don’t
panic. Reassure him he is safe and take him back inside. Try again tomorrow. If he tries
to take off on his own you can easily check him with your leash. Once he is comfortable
in the yard you can start taking him farther. Before long you will be able to take nice
walks wherever you choose.

The Advantages of Neutering your Male Cat

We have two cats that live with us and they are a part of the family. One male and one female. I do believe in getting you cat Spayed or Neutered. I read this article a while back and it pretty well covers the Pros of getting your male cat Neutered.

Most male animals that are not used for breeding purposed are castrated, neutered, so that they can no longer impregnate a female. For cats especially, this is crucial, since there are hundreds of kittens every year that go without homes. There are many advantages to neutering your male cat, and the process is quite safe, so you should consider it if your furry feline friend is male and not yet neutered.

Male cats that have not yet been neutered are called tomcats. Simply put, it can be difficult to live with a tomcat, no matter how well trained he may be. When your cat is not neutered, he will want to get outside as frequently as possible to mate with female cats in heat. This can be disastrous if you live in a busy street with lots of traffic or if your cat is not used to being outdoors. Tomcats also roam a lot, meaning that they may travel far distances in search of female cats, and it is possible for your cat to roam too far and not know his way home. It is also possible for him simply to resist coming home at all, since he will be shut indoors. To protect your male cat, neutering it the best choice.

Tomcats also fight and are generally more aggressive than neutered cats. Because they want sexual dominance in a particular area, they may seek fights with other male cats to drive them away. Cats will fight to the death if they feel threatened, and fights cause not only injuries, but also the spread of diseases like the FeLV virus, which can be fatal. Neutering your cat will not stop an aggressive cat from being less aggressive toward humans, but it will prevent your cat from actively seeking fights with other male cats in the neighborhood.

Vasectomies are not done with male cats. Rather, the simple neutering procedure will remove the male reproductive organs, which are easily accessible in most tomcats. In some cases, more extensive surgery has to be done, because they have not developed and descended correctly. The removal of these organs is what causes the changing in male hormones through a cat’s body, changing the cat’s behavior. Sterilization is not enough, because the cat won’t notice the difference and will still seek to fight and mate. Your vet can tell you more about this procedure, but all in all, it is the best choice for any cat, since there are already so many homeless cats in the world.

Optimizing Your Computer?

Hi,

Besides being in Affiliate/Relationship Marketing, I also run a small Computer Repair Business
out of my home.

Today I hear many people wanting to “Optimize their Computer”. I thought most of the tools came
with the Operating System installed on your computer. Maybe Microsoft has hidden them well.

Since I do like working on computers I experiment with software to find which one works well
for me and also so I am able to recommend products to my customers that I know work well.

I have been dealing with a software company called Ashampoo.  They have some very good
products.

One product that I recommend if you really want to Optimize your PC for a reasonable price is their product
called WinOptimizer 2016.

If you want a product that does Everything, This is it! I can not explain everything that this product does,
it would take a very long time.

Here are the Highlights of WinOptimizer 2016:

Many new Tweaking Tool options
Internet Cleaner
More comprehensive Registry Optimizer
More effective Drive Cleaner
Improved One-Click Optimizer
Favorites Tab
Context Menu Manager
AntiSpy module
Predictive disk defragmenter

Here are a couple of screenshots for you to view:

Yes it truly works very well.

Oh! I almost forgot to tell you the price!

It is FREE! Yep all you have to do is download the software enter your you email address to receive a
Product Key and it is yours!

They also changed the name to WinOptimzer Free!

Here is the link for more information!!

What do I do When a Popup Box on my Computer tells me my Computer needs to be Optimized???..

Hi,

What do I do when a Popup Box tells me my computer needs to be Optimized or has a Virus?
I read it and then I close it right away. If it comes back I double check it and then I run
a Scan on my computer with Windows Defender or the installed Anti-Virus I have installed.

I have had a few people calling me telling me about this and then some of them call the
number and pay all kinds of money to get a computer fixed that is not broken.

Most of the tools to optimize your computer are already installed with your Operating System.
Some of them can be set to run and do the maintenance needed when you are not using the computer.
If you have questions ask a friend or find someone you know to help you to set this up or explain
it to you.

If you want the truth told I hate Popups or Windows that slide across your screen.

If you are having a problem with your computer. GOOGLE IT!!! I am serious.

I don’t like to see people pay large sums of money or SCAMMED out of their money
it’s Wrong!

If you do have a problem with your computer and you are not very knowledgeable
about them. Ask a friend they may know someone who is reputable and can help fix
your problem.

Hope everyone had a Wonderful Wednesday!!

Just a Thought …Where has Technology Taken Us?

Hey Everyone,

Hope you all are having a Terrific Tuesday!

I thought that a break from giving info on Blogs might be a good idea.

I was just speaking with my daughter today about “Where Technology has taken us today?

Seems I remember watching TV and as a kid you could see what the imagination could do.

Many of these things would never become reality!!!

I remember a car called “Kit” on a show called Knight Rider. She could talk driver herself
and a number of different things. Well most of our cars talk to us and understand us, they
give us directions and some of them even stop before we crash into something!

Robots.. on “Lost in Space” how about the Jetsons?
Well we have robots that vacuum the house program it once and it does it’s thing.
They also have robots mowing the lawn. So much for our riding lawn mower.

When the first cell phones came out, the flip phones, I thought they resembled the
“Communicators” that Captain Kirk and the rest of the crew used on the Starship Enterprise?
I don’t know maybe just a coincidence…

I remember some of the discussions that we had when I was in High School that they
would be much too large and much too expensive for the average person to own. Seems
like the one I have today fits just fine in my pocket.

In the medical field technology has exploded! It is changing everyday!
We have out patient surgery today that we would have never dreamed of
having and going home in a few hours. We have non-evasive surgeries
with the use of robots that can do things more precise than a human!

Oh I can’t for get the Television. Black and White Rabbit Ears and tin foil
to get 3 Channels! Now I think we have 300 Channels and nothing good to
watch at times! flat Screen and living color! Who needs 3-D Glasses?!

I better quit before this gets too long and I won’t even want to read
it. LOL

I had FUN! This was just off the top of my head today and I hope you
have as much fun reading this as I did writing it!

Blogging 101

Ah! Blogging 101

A look into what a Blog is and getting some back
ground in understanding the terms and tools that
you need that make your Blog work.

Blogging 101 is mostly about the blogging
vocabulary. To understand blogs, you need to know
the terms blog, platform, domain, and web host.
Once you have mastered these key elements of
blogging, you can enter any conversation about
blogging with confidence. After you know what
exactly a blog is, you will be on your way to
passing the final exam of blogging 101.

Blog is short for weblog, which simply means a
series of online posts presented in reverse
chronological order. That’s all! Most blogs are text,
but there are also photo blogs and video blogs. The
rest of blogging 101 has to do with the technical
side of things.

If you are setting up a blog, you will
need a platform, a web host, and a domain. A
blogging platform is a computer software program
that allows you to write posts and to update your
blog. Your platform is also what you use to design
the look of your blog, from color scheme to font
size.

The web host is sort of like the virtual file
cabinet where your blog is stored. Your computer
communicates with the host when you upload or
edit a post.

The domain is the online address of
your blog, and usually ends in ‘dot com’. Now that
you know what a blog is, what a platform is, and
what domains and hosts are, congratulate yourself!

You have passed blogging 101!

Something New in Blogging

Something New in Blogging

Seems like Microsoft has come out with a Blogging Platform
that people seem to like it is called the ASP.Net Blogging Software.

Blogengine.net works with the Windows Operating System.

Here is more Info.. I found it to be interesting and educational.

 

Of all of the different kinds of programs on the market
today, many people feel that Microsoft's recently
released ASP.NET blogging software is the most
advanced. In many ways, this particular program is
more adaptable and more versatile than any other
blogging software on the market. Although most of the
people who favor the program are accomplished coders
who are familiar with programming languages like html
and C++, this new program from Microsoft is much
easier to use than a lot of other blog design software
that incorporates hands-on coding. One of the things
that makes ASP.NET stand apart from its competitors is
the fact that it allows designers to use a wide variety of
programming languages when they build a blog. This
means that a larger number of coders can realize their
dreams by programming in the language with which
they are most familiar and in which they are most
accomplished.

Here is the link if you want to look at it:

Web Blogs

 

A lot of people have welcomed ASP.NET blogging
software with enthusiasm and with open arms.
However, that doesn't mean that the ASP.NET program
is right for everybody. If you are not familiar with
computer languages like javascript or perl, you may
find that the release of ASP.NET does not directly
affect you at all.

 

However, if you are an experienced
web designer, you are likely to find much to celebrate in
this exciting new program.

Here you can download BlogEngine.Net:

Why the Heck Do I Blog?

Good Question….

I like it! It is FUN!

I use a Blog for many different reasons one of them is so people get to know me better.

A second reason is to keep people informed and Blogging is one of the best ways to
contact a large amount of people to hear what you have to tell them.

The more people I reach and get to know the better it is for me and for my business!

For the next few days I will be sharing what I know about a Blog and maybe help someone
who is just beginning or is thinking about Blogging.

Sorry I am not an expert.

What is a Blog? Many people ask this question…

Here is some back ground info for every one…

 

The Definition of Blogging

 

The definition of blogging is something that is very
much in flux, as the new technologies that appear every
day redefine what a blog is, what a blog can be, and
what a blog should do. For many years, blogs were
defined as text-based websites that kept records of days,
similar to a captain’s log on a sailing ship.

However, this started to change as the group of people
who kept blogs became more diverse. The more bloggers
began to explore the limits of the medium and of the
technology that made it possible, the more the
boundaries of what could be called a “blog” expanded.

Today, there are an abundance of photo blogs, and there
are even video blogs as well.  Mobile blogging devices
may well change the definition of blogging entirely by
making it possible for bloggers to create new kinds of
posts.

Another element of the blogosphere that is
starting to redefine blogging is the corporate blog. As
more companies hire writers to keep blogs with the sole
purpose of creating positive buzz about their brand,
bloggers across the globe are arguing about whether
these manufactured blogs are really worthy of the name.

Between all of these different forces that are constantly
expanding and reshaping the blogosphere, it is difficult
to imagine that the definition of what is and is not a
blog will ever remain fixed for very long.

..And here you thought a Blog was a Techy Thing LOL!

That’s all for today!

A Favorite TV Show

I was try to think about what I could write about for my first post on my new Blog.
I thought about it and said well lets talk about one of my Favorite TV Shows,

“The Curse of Oak Island” that is shown on the History Channel.

 

 

 

The show caught my interest and was intriguing to me. I have wondered what could make humans keep looking for a Treasure for over 200 Years! Six People have lost their lives trying to find the treasure!
I became really interested in the events and the history behind the story it self.
There are books written about it and one of them I read:“Freemasons at Oak Island” Speculation about a real National Treasure Site

Intriguing and interesting to say the least.

There is also a new book being published written by Randall Sullivan he is the author that wrote
one of the first modern day articles about Oak Island in the 1960’s in Rolling Stone Magazine.

The book is titled “The Curse of Oak Island” is set to be released in July 2017.

If you are interested you can pre-order it on Amazon.

 

I really don’t watch that much television. When there is a show that
I get interested in there must be some thing special!
