Creating a Landscape Feature Out of Your Pond

When I first bought my home, I was unsure about the man-made pond in the backyard. The water was green and there was no wildlife to be seen. I decided to work with the water feature instead of spending money on fill materials to get rid of the pond. I added a water fountain to the space first that featured a submersible pump and I later added fish. After installing a filtration system and an aeration device, my pond became the central landscaping feature on my property. I made a lot of mistakes as I completed the installations. I had to learn about the biological filtration and I had to figure out how to control algae with shade plants. I want you to have an easier time than I did creating a water feature, so read my blog to find out what you need to do.

Preparing Your Pet Kitty For A Move To A New Home

As peculiar and fickle as they can be, cats are definitely a part of the family. When moving is inevitable, it is imperative that you know what to expect from your kitty. Some people would say that dogs are much harder to acclimate to a new space, but cats can be just as frustrating to have to deal with during a transition to a new home. There are a few things you should know about your cat when preparing for a move to a new place to live.

Your Cat Should Not be Left Alone for Long Periods

When you are in the process of working with the household moving company (such as Wheaton World Wide Moving) to get everything moved from one house to the next, there is a good chance you will be spending a great deal of time away from your current home. Furthermore, even after you are sleeping at your new residence, you may still be gone cleaning up at the old property during the day. During this time it is important that you do not forget about your kitty stuck alone, whether indoors or out. If a cat does not have interaction with you for even a few days, you can see a dramatic change in his personality. If your cat is left outdoors at the new place, you may even find that he has took off in search of familiar territory.

To avoid having a stressed out cat on your hands, it is best to treat your cat as you would a small child by giving them plenty of attention. Do not leave your cat at the new home alone for more than a few hours at a time an if you do leave kitty alone, make sure he is kept indoors or contained where he cannot wander off.

Cats Are Not a Fan of Moving Vehicles

The most challenging part of getting your cat from the old home to your new place is the transportation day itself. Cats are not usually a fan of being locked in a traveling vehicle. In fact, it is not uncommon for a cat to get so stressed out that they become impossible to handle. You should never try to hold a cat while you are in a vehicle as there is a good chance you will  get scratched or bitten. Use a pet carrier with a secure latch for transporting your cat and talk to your moving company about how the carrier can be handled. Sometimes, a larger space, such as in a moving truck where movement will not be sensed as easily will make the feline more at ease.

With a little diligence and planning ahead, the transition to a new home with your cat can go smoothly. Just keep in mind how things appear from the perspective of your cat and consider his feelings about the out of the ordinary situation.
