Rescuing Tweety or Helping Bugs Feel Better
BEFORE Veterinary Help is Available
OCTOBER 22nd, 2018…Two new books and online classes have been unveiled by Denise Fleck, the Pet Safety Crusader™, to help you help your smaller family members in the event of injury or illness and BEFORE you can get to veterinary care! “Basic Bird First Aid” and “First Aid Basics for Rabbits and Pocket Pets” provide the 4-1-1 you need to know should you share your life with or care for a bird, rabbit, guinea pig, hamster, gerbil, mouse or rat. The books and classes teach you how to check vitals and provide an overview into the care and basic needs for each species as well as susceptibilities to illness or injury. In addition to the books, the author has recorded two instructional webinars to help you grasp these basic skills at your own pace. After successful completion of a multiple choice and true/false exam, you will receive a certificate stating you have completed the training.
“Over the years, I have had scores of students use lessons learned in my classes to save an animal in need, and that is the best reward. Up until now that has been mostly dogs and cats, so I want to make sure humans also know how to care for our feathered as well as our tiniest furry best friends,” Fleck explains.
And besides helping pet parents, Fleck want to make sure pet sitters are true professionals continuing to up their education with certificate courses. “I also offer trainings in Dog & Cat First Aid, Senior Pet Care and Pet Disaster Preparedness because as cliché as it may sound, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail, and I feel it is so important that pet parents and sitters can react confidently using whatever is available at arm’s length. That could include improvising a splint, muzzle, bandage or pet transport, so being able to think on your feet comes with non-stop learning,” Fleck professes.
Having personally taught close to 20,000 humans and millions more on national TV, Fleck’s mission is to help YOU make a difference in the life of an animal through her books and courses. Denise has appeared widely on radio & TV (The Doctors, CNN Headline News, Animal Planet, Kirstie Alley's Big Life and had a weekly segment on KTLA in Los Angeles for several years), has written for pet publications/blogs and authored a dozen books. In 2018, she was named one of Pet Age Magazine's "Women of Influence," Voyage Atlanta Magazine’s “Most Inspiring Story” and won two special awards from the Cat Writers Association. With a soft spot for our older best friends, Denise serves as the President of the Grey Muzzle Organization (aiding senior dogs) and on the boards of both the Emma Zen Foundation (pet oxygen masks) and Thankful Paws (educating on proper procedures for establishing pet food banks).
Topics covered in “First Aid Basics for Rabbits & Pocket Pets” and “Basic Bird First Aid” include:
ü Attacks by Another Animals
ü Bleeding (including Blood Feathers)
ü Bone & Back Injuries
ü Breathing Difficulties & CPR
ü Dehydration & Diarrhea
ü Egg Straining
ü G.I. Stasis
ü Regurgitation vs Vomiting
Both books are available in living color on Amazon while you can learn more about and register for the online classes at www.PetSafetyCrusader.com/products/classes/

The Souls of Animals
In this revised second edition of this celebrated book, Unitarian Universalist minister Gary Kowalski grapples with the big spiritual questions around our relationship with animals: Do animals have souls? Are they aware of death and are they conscious of themselves? Do animals have an inherent capacity to recognize beauty and can they create art? Do animals experience love? Do they know right from wrong? Why do birds sing? And ultimately what do we lose in a world without animals and what does that mean for our ongoing relationship with the creatures with which we share the world?
Kowalski offers beautifully written vignettes that shed light on these questions and much more. He explores how animals play, their sense of altruism, their capacity for love. By “desacrilizing” animals, Kowalski argues, we make ourselves less human. “If we are to keep our family homestead — Earth — safe for coming generations,” he writes, “we must awaken to a new respect for the family of life.” Praise for The Souls of Animals includes:
“Gary Kowalski helps us unlock the mysteries of animal spirituality. For as we have learned from the companion animals that share our lives and our homes, when we look into their eyes we see the reflection of our won humanity.”
—Kim Stallwood, Executive Director, PETA
“Gary Kowalski’s voice is one that empowers us to say in public what we have thought in private — that animals love their companions, know grief and hoy and play and create. The are truly our bothers and sisters in fur, feather and fin.”
—Tom Regan, author of The Case for Animal Rights
“This is an important book because it is so revealing of the animal soul that touches ours when we are open and receptive. In the process, our own souls are enriched.”
— Dr. Michael W. Fox, former vice president, the Humane Society of the United States
Gary Kowalski is a Unitarian Universalist minister in Burlington, VT. He holds degrees from Harvard College and Harvard Divinity School. A native of Oklahoma, he has served churches in Memphis, Tennessee, and Seattle, Washington, before moving to Burlington. He is the author of several books, including Goodbye Friend: Healing Wisdom For Anyone Who Has Ever Lost A Pet, also published by New World Library.

Felisept is a natural stress-reliever for cats of all breeds, colors, and sizes. Made with an extract of the mint plant we all know as "catnip", this plant is a natural attractant for cats and other feline species that helps create a sense of calm for them. When used in a cat's environment, Felisept can help curb their unwanted behavior that is often caused by feeling stressed. Felisept is available in two options to better suit your long-term or short-term needs. Try the fast-acting Felisept Spray to make travel and vet visits less troublesome for you and your cat, or plug in the long-lasting Felisept Diffuser to help your cat relax at home. Stress at home can be caused by many things for your cat, including: • Fireworks • Thunderstorms • New family members • Welcoming a new pet • Rearranged furniture • Animals outside in the yard
Stress can make us do crazy things, and it can affect our cats just as easily. While they don't have the same causes of stress we humans do such as work, money, and relationships, there are many other things in your cat's life and environment that can cause stress. How do you know if he's stressed? Luckily, cats show certain unusual behavior when something is bothering them, behavior that you might easily notice.
Here are 10 tell-tale behavioral signs from PetMD that your cat could be stressed out:
- Urinating Outside of the Litter Box
If your cat is usually very good about keeping it in the box and you notice he's decided to urinate it other places around the house, he's probably trying to tell you something.
- Going Too Much, or Not Enough
Diarrhea, constipation, and other digestive problems are not pleasant for you or your cat, and could be indicative of several possible things.
- Licking Til Fur is Gone
Cats are known to groom themselves carefully and often, but no animal should lick to the point of bald patches or raw skin. This is a clear sign of stress, and should call for a trip to the vet instead of the groomer.
- Overly Scratching
Too much scratching of himself can be just as bad as compulsive licking.
- Hiding From the Humans
Cats are naturally aloof, but a cat that actively hides from you and everyone else in the house is likely hiding out of stress. Time to get him into a cat carrier and have a vet take a look.
- Talking More Than Ever
Some cats are talkers, while others speak more rarely. If his meows are unusually long, panicked, or happening in recurring bouts, he's literally trying to tell you something. Your vet should be able to "crack the kitty language code".
- Eating Less or Not at All
Humans may fast and go on diets, but cats are always going to be regular eaters--unless something is wrong. You'll want to see a vet very soon, especially if he stops eating entirely.
- Napping All Day & All Night
They CAN sleep up to 20 hours per day, but that doesn't mean all cats will. No one knows your cat's sleeping schedule better than you. If you notice him suddenly sleeping more or being very lethargic, it could be stressed induced.
- Starting Fights with Other Pets
They play rough, but real aggression between animals that are usually peaceful cohabitants of your home could be a sign that one of them is stressed or ill.
- Getting Aggressive with YOU
Your favorite fluffy lap warmer decided to get aggressive with you? Try not to get personally offended. Stressed and sick animals may get suddenly aggressive with the humans they love, too. If this happens, it may be best to consult your vet quickly, before it gets out of hand.
