Re: Body Weight Workouts

For back, you can do good mornings, bent rows/flies, locust/superman, bridge. You can do reverse flys on a stability ball, too. Actually lots of stuff on the ball, google back exercise and stability ball.

Re: Goodby sweet prince

So very sorry for your loss. It's hard enough losing them when they are elderly but the young ones are a special heartbreak. I had the same thing with a young male that had respiratory issues, he just wasn't made right, poor guy. Every minute you [more]

Hopefully the surgeon can clear this up and talk to her, if possible with you or another loved one there, so she knows exactly what he wants and will let the PT people work with her.

Re: Medicaid Look Back Period

I'm sure you will get some excellent advice from people smarter than me. However, my advice is to go to an eldercare lawyer/financial adviser well versed in the state laws ASAP and before you do anything. My mom's situation was very different but we [more]

Re: Hills Metabolic Diet?

Did he give any kind of diagnosis? Interesting choice in the metabolic diet. I would have been more prone to think the z/d: put him on an allergen free diet and see how he does after a few months. Preferable to steroids (to me). You say he's a tom, [more]

Re: Hills Metabolic Diet?

Have they done blood work? X-rays? Ultrasound? I'm sorry if I missed previous posts with this information in them. Was this a last resort measure or the first thing the vet did? Perhaps you need to get a second opinion? Is there a feline specialty [more]

Re: Oscar shorts

Here in Austin, they show them at an independent theater called Violet Crown. They have also shown them at Alamo Drafthouse in the past. Do you have a independent or Boutique theater in your town? You can find previous years on Netflix.

I do most of my workouts at work, either at noon or after work with some work out buddies for the running and dvds. Yoga is taught at noon. I teach a core class at noon Fridays and the rest is fit at lunch time and on the weekend. I love it [more]

Finally mostly back in the routine of things with my own workouts and buddy workouts. A glitch is that I've been having to skip a workout here and there to go to the [more]

Re: Unscented, non clay, clumping cat litter?

I used to use World's Best but eventually switched to the bulk Petco litter. It is fairly low dust (I found WB also had a fair amount of dust) and it is inexpensive, works great and I take my refillable container back to the store. My cat doesn't go [more]

Re: Serial UTI's

I have the same problem with my mom. They cannot get her in the shower. I can 95% of the time, so she gets a shower every week, sometimes every 2 weeks if there is no "spa" person available when I'm visiting. We also have an issue with them [more]

Re: Kitty who just wants a friend

Maybe you can set a schedule of play sessions with him before feeding in the morning and in the evening, at least 5 - 10 minutes devoted to just playing with him. And get some interactive toys for him for while you are away. All my cats, as they [more]
