I’d planned to blog about my friend Arden Moore’s visit to Dallas on this week’s Feline Friday blog because she’s presenting a pet tech first aid on Jan. 25 and a behavior seminar on Jan. 26 in Dallas. And the “star” of the class is Zeki, a rescue cat that had a rocky start in Dallas when evil people tried to skin her alive (urk! I know!). But she’s now saving kitty and doggy lives as a spokescat and demo feline for Arden’s classes.
However, the Friday class filled up so she’s added another class on Thursday Jan. 24 at the Dallas SPCA. Call 214-324-6999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info and check out this link. If you can’t attend one of Arden’s awesome sessions, I’d strongly urge you to invest in a pet first aid book. Here’s a sneak peak of Arden’s class.
During a recent pet first aid class taught by Pet Tech master instructor Arden Moore, her feline teaching assistant, Zeki, began kneading the demo dog at the exact same time Moore was explaining the proper techniques to give CPR to a dog. Now that’s one smart cat! Learn more about Arden Moore by visiting www.fourleggedlife.com and www.petfirstaid4u.com and check out this amazing cat who survived a brutal knife attach as a stray to become a true feline ambassa-cat to help people, cats and yes, even dogs!
Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. Feel free to comment and “sing” about similar paw-some links that should be included. And you really MUST watch the video at the end–for some writerly inspiration and creative first aid.
