Winter's coming buddies, before you know it, we'll be dipping our paws (and noses) into the snow. After last year's long, snowy winter, mom shudders just thinking about it, but we have to be prepared!
We use pet-friendly ice melters such as Morton® Safe-T-Pet® on our steps and sidewalks, but our paws are always wiped with a damp cloth after a stroll around the neighborhood. You never can tell what a coonhound might have walked through buddies!
Please don't forget, anti-freeze is deadly for dogs and kitties! Because we're drawn to the sweet taste, mom's extra vigilant when we see any spills in the street or driveways. A little bit is all it can take to make us very sick or worse! If your people have it in the garage, remind them to be sure to keep it tightly sealed and out of our reach.
We have a few outdoor kitties in our neighborhood, along with squirrels and other animals. Be sure to make some noise on your car hood before starting the engine, just in case somebody snuck in to keep out of the cold.
You can find more safety tips on Morton’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/MortonSalt and on their website www.mortonmelters.com.
Now the good news! Morton is making a donation of $20,000 to the ASPCA to help keep pets safe in homes and in shelters! You can help increase this donation for the ASPCA by simply visiting the Morton Salt Facebook page (www.facebook.com/MortonSalt) and “liking” the page. Morton will donate an additional $1 to the ASPCA for every unique “like” received between October 1, 2011 and January 31, 2012! Up to $75,000 in total donations!!! Now we're just newbies at this blogging, but it would be terrific if when you visit their Facebook page, please let them know that Prudence pup sent you!
Thanks fur stopping by buddies, stay safe and warm!
