    I need your help please. I’m getting my kitten December 14 & at that time he will be 9 weeks old. I want to feed him your raw diet recipe, but I’m confused on how much calcium MCHA capsules to add to his food if I make a smaller batch. Also is the calculation for eggshell powder the same for calcium MCHA? Thank You

  2. kimberly barr on August 19, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Excellent information. I will be checking every label of every product now!!

  3. Jeanne Amato on August 19, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Cats have extremely sensitive lungs. No EO should be near where they visit for any length of time.

    My cat just ate essential oil idk what to do

  5. Karen Pinson on August 19, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    Awesome information. Thank you. I make crystal potpourri and sell it in a local flea market. It never occurred to me to isolate my cat away in a fragrance free environment while I am making my product. Now my furgirl can go into the bedroom while I work with my oils. Though I do use more fragrance oils which are chemical based, I do use some essential oils. Your info was an eye opener.

  6. oziona on August 19, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    what about amla oil

  7. Umi Tea Sets on August 19, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Chlorogenic acid and Vitamin C in the scented tea can make the skin become exquisite, white and glossy.

    My cat licked my finger after i used thieves, is thieves good and is my cat gonna be okay?

  9. Itsadevorak on August 19, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    My vet said peppermint oil is completely fine for cats and I checked websites of local animal protection agencies and it’s a mixed answers of they are safe and not safe so I dont know I only use it on myself and I tried it today nothing has yet happened

  10. Citrine42 on August 19, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    I just checked my natural flea killer spray I spray inside, since every few months I’ll see a flea or two. It has the bad essential oils in there of course, but each oil is diluted to 1% of the active ingredients. thank goodness kitty didn’t experience any side effects!

  11. Rosalind Sanchez on August 19, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Are scented candles dangerous to cats?

  12. Maria on August 19, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    Informative and entertaining video, thank you. God bless you, lovely Jasmin and Puppy and Alfred.

  13. isabelle persic on August 19, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    your very knowledgeable and am going to pass this video on to other people who have cats…buttt…the candles in the background, are they natural candles??? cause regular candles are uber toxic….people have got to look at what goes into them and how they’re made…they’ll never buy them again no matter how they smell…the very best and healthiest candles to buy are 100% pure beeswax…very healthy, but you have to burn them for at least 3 hours for the benefits..and they’re safe for pets (including cats)…
    you have to make sure tho’ that they’re 100% pure cause some state that they are but they’re not…God Bless

    Worryingly some internet cat toothpaste recipes include mint or peppermint oil!!!!

  15. Cassidy Cara on August 19, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    Essential oils should really have warning labels about this stuff..
    Side note: I’m so sad i can’t use my essential oil diffuser anymore (i haven’t for years, since i found all this out).

    You have a kitty named puppy which is very cute. I adopted a shelter dog which I believed was a 10 month old PRIMARILY Boxer mix. I wanted to call him Kitty but since he was already nearly a year old, so I thought, it seemed like it wouldn’t be nice to do to him. Shoulda went for it. Dexter was really only about 6 months old said the vet and upon reading the fine print in his papers he was Boxer x Bull Mastiff x Pit Bull. He wound up weighing in at about 240 pounds and it was all muscle. The dog looked like he was a juicing gym rat. Could you imagine me going "here kitty kitty kitty " and that mega beast comes galloping up? He loved kitties, but they were flat terrified of him which really broke his heart. The only critters he had issues with, and I’m here to tell you they were bone deep jihad grade issues, were wild turkeys! Huh? Never could figure that one out.

    I still miss you you great big poodle head. See you one the rainbow bridge soon enough.

    Is burning sage around my cat’s safe ?

  18. John Melville on August 19, 2020 at 11:18 pm

    I had cats for 38 years. Some of the older ones used to get flystrike in warm weather. This is very dangerous and will kill the animal if not dealt with. I used to remove as many of the eggs as possible with a flea comb, the clusters of eggs look like cottage cheese and the flies try to lay them under the fur. I would then apply a spot-on flea treatment which the vets said would kill the maggots when they reach the skin. Then I would make "lavender water" by putting three or four drops of lavender oil in half a litre of water and shaking the mixture. I put this in a spray bottle and squirted perhaps half a teaspoonful into the palm of my hand then spread it over my hands and rubbed it into my cats fur, avoiding the face. I would use more if needed, depending on the size of the cat. Flies don’t like the smell of lavender and I found this an effective deterrent. One application was usually enough for several days or a few weeks but I would check my cats carefully every day. I never knew whether the lavender in this low concentration was toxic to my cats but it seemed the lesser of two evils. It appears that some cats lose their natural resistance to flystrike when they get old and I had to do something. I didn’t notice adverse reactions and all the cats I used lavender water with lived for at least another two years. However perhaps there is a safer alternative to lavender.

    Any essential oil that contains a natural terpene called limonene should be on toxic list. Cedarwood oil is safe to use topically on cats and dogs as a flea and tick repellent. Cassia is marketed in grocery stores as cinnamon. It’s in the same family as cinnamon, but true cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka and somewhat rare.

    Thank you, the oils information. Eucalyptus and spearmint are my favorite diffuser oils, creams pool spray Etc. For Christmas I had got to set, but something came up and I started looking and found your video and I thank you so much I will never use these products and I will send them to someone who doesn’t have pets. Thank you so much you probably saved the lives of my very best husband and two children as I have three cats that are family and my life. I can never tell you how much I appreciate your video because internet didn’t tell me enough and still left me with questions but your video cleared all that up.
