Tube Feeding Kittens


     Many of your know that I run an orphan kitten rescue called the Lazarus Rescue Foundation with my friend. We can't always take a kitten in, whether they aren't close enough, or we are just simply out of space. A couple months ago an online friend need some help, her vet wasn't in and tube feeding was her only option. She didn't know how so I made a quick video to show her how. Now excuse the mess it was not meant to go on the Web but I don't currently have any kittens to make a new video with and I have been getting requests for it :) remember please do not attempt tube feeding without discussing it with your vet first. You must have the appropriate supplies available and there can be no short ends. Please sterilize your supplies before every use, these babies have enough struggles. If the video does not load you can view it HERE!

I will catch up as I can, may even try to add extra to the days once I feel better. For today it is 50 burpees and 50 kick down crunches. If you don't know how to do these make sure to scroll down for directions! You will also see why with the flu these aren't doable.lol HOW TO DO A BURPEE!

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
