I brought my kitten home after she had been spayed and microchipped. The instructions were to try to keep her from jumping.
To keep her from trying to leap on and off the bed, I placed a two-step step stool next to one side of the bed. I only needed to show her once how to walk up and down, and she has been using it ever since. This is a good hint for other pet owners whose pets are sick or are recovering from surgery.
A friend’s pediatrician recommended this.
There are a lot of uses for vinegar in the kitchen. To make a tangy cucumber snack, soak cucumbers in apple-cider vinegar and water for 10-15 minutes. Great with a salad.
