Why Do Cats Sleep With Their Eyes Open?

Tis your favorite cat of wisdom, back again to unravel more feline mysteries for those who fancy us. And oh, you silly humans and your questions. You genuinely think of some good ones. And this post came to be thanks to a question my mother blurted as she stared at me napping.

Squinting at my cracked eyes, watching me as I watched her, Mom asked, “Forrest, why do cats sleep with their eyes open? It’s creepy!”

My reply? First of all, nothing I do is creepy. I’m a cat; therefore, my actions are always adorable and delightful. And if she wants to talk creepy, let’s discuss her wicked snoring. That’s what’s creepy. She sounds like some otherworldly monster coming for us all. And secondly, sleeping with an open eye or even two serves a purpose for a cat.

Why Do Cats Sleep with Their Eyes Open?

When I tell you a cat is always watching, I’m not overstating. As supreme predators, we keep a tight watch on our surroundings, even when napping. So while it may look peculiar, sleeping while peeping allows a cat to process their surroundings visually while catching some shut eye.

In addition to keeping an eye on things, cats will sometimes sleep with their eyes open if they’ve suffered an injury to the eye. Closing the eye may intensify the scratch or puncture pain. If your cat is suddenly sleeping with their eyes open or has excessive watering or swelling, call the veterinarian. The same can be said about illness too. Some sicknesses present with eye problems and should be treated as soon as symptoms are recognized.

But what makes a cat sleeping with their eyes open look creepy, as my mother would say, is that white flap of tissue that slides out when a cat’s eyes are only partially open.

That all-important flap is called the nictating membrane, and this third eyelid helps keep feline eyes from drying out when they’re sleeping with their eyes cracked. It slides out from the corner of the eye to protect and moisten the eyeball when cats blink or partially close their eyes. And because the nictating membrane is translucent, cats maintain some vision even when the inner eyelid is partially slid out

But cats aren’t the only species with nictating membranes. Birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, and some mammals, like dogs, rabbits, polar bears, and camels, have them too. This extra eyelid helps protect wild eyes from predators, injury, and the elements.

So if your kitty likes to keep the peepers cracked while snoozing, don’t think you can get away with any shenanigans. Kitty dear is watching your every move! Including you walking by the empty food dish. So before your furry one rises from their slumber, don’t forget to feed the cat.

Harmful Things You Might Be Doing To Your Dog Without Realizing

1. Treats are a staple in their diet

Image Source: Reddit.com

We all love our dogs, right?  But giving them too many treats has the potential to alter your pup’s behavior.  In fact, your dog may not obey without their favorite treat, they might become more demanding, or even aggressive.  Not to mention perhaps causing your pooch to pile on the pounds!

2. Moving is not a priority

Image Source: Reddit.com

Your dog might also become obese if they don’t move enough.  A dog without enough exercise is a miserable one, and you’ll be able to tell if your pet seems bored or lethargic.  They might also feel pretty frustrated and that energy has got to go somewhere!  Like, say, on ripping up your favorite cushion?  Or barking endlessly?!

3. Dog parks are a regular day out

Image Source: Reddit.com

Dog parks sound like fun, right?  Wrong!  Experts generally advise against taking your beloved pet to these parks because they are places where dogs tend to be off-leash.  Scuffles with bigger dogs have the potential to cause serious injuries or even kill smaller dogs – even if they are just playing!

4. The doggy dentist is not a regular day out

Image Source: Reddit.com

Doggy dentistry is an absolute must in your pet’s care, and neglecting a regular appointment can have devastating effects and cause irreversible damage.  Your dog will suffer the consequences of skipping the dentist, including tooth decay and loss, severe pain, and bad breath.  And if that’s not enough, fatal bacteria from your dog’s mouth may spread to their organs, causing them serious health problems or even premature death.

5. Punishing them is a normality

Image Source: Reddit.com

It is said that punishments do absolutely nothing to help your dog to learn how to behave appropriately.  All they do is cause fear and anxiety because the dog doesn’t understand why they’re being punished, and this has the potential to make them feel insecure.  This might turn into aggression, which is bad news for everyone!

6. Their healthy diet has fallen by the wayside

Image Source: Reddit.com

Poor nutrition can be fatal for dogs.  And if they’re consuming too many high-calorie, high-carb foods (or not enough!), they may be faced with obesity, rickets, diabetes, allergies, and emaciation to name a few!  It’s useful to also know that low-quality dog food that exists on store shelves, should be avoided, and you should also be clued up on the foods that are toxic to dogs!

7. Not enough water

Image Source: Reddit.com

We all know that we can’t survive without water.  And dogs are no different!  If they don’t get enough to drink, they will begin to dehydrate, causing their health to deteriorate.  This means more trips to the vet with potential bladder and kidney infections.

8. You give them mixed signals

Image Source: Reddit.com

Behavior issues can arise from giving mixed messages.  Dogs are highly intuitive to our emotions.  So if you seem frustrated after calling them in from outside for like the 100th time, they sense it and wonder why you’re frustrated.  After all, they DID obey your command… eventually!  You see, when communication is blurred, they get confused!

9. They don’t know when to expect you home

Image Source: Reddit.com

As a dog owner, you’ve probably experienced getting home and your pet sitting and waiting for you by the door.  And although it is believed that there are several reasons that speculate how dogs predict their owner’s arrival, including the sound of your car and their body clock, the truth is, they do seem to actually miss you and wait for you all day!

10. Your home isn’t safe enough

Image Source: DogTime.com

Dogs will eat anything, so it’s important to know that many household items are actually dangerous and toxic for dogs, including cleaning products and food!  In fact, some really common food poisonings have been related to booze, raisins, grapes, chocolate, and even coffee!

11. You leave dangerous objects around

Image Source: Reddit.com

And it’s not just edible hazards and cleaning chemicals you might leave lying around!  Things like batteries, coins, plants, and tiny bits of lego can also mean a trip to the vet.  You’re even advised to not leave their favorite chews around because they can be hosts to harmful bacteria, including Salmonella.  Which is not good for either of you!

12. You’re not clued up on breed-specific behaviors

Image Source: Reddit.com

When you’re a dog owner, you have to educate yourself on all sorts, including how to train them, what to feed them, how to keep them healthy,  and you have to work to understand their breed-specific behaviors!  This will help you to ensure that your pet will get on well in your home, with your children, your schedule, and expectations.

13. You let them get away with things

Image Source: Reddit.com

Those eyes; the way they look at you.  It’s difficult not to just melt when you see them, and it feels impossible to say no to them.  But if you let your pup get away with undesirable behaviors, they will rule the roost!  You will completely lose control and find that your home is no longer yours!

14. You don’t know about common health problems in the breed

Image Source: Reddit.com

Being aware of breed-specific issues, not only applies to behavior, but it also stretches to the overall health of your pet.  Some breeds, particularly pedigree breeds, for example, have increased risks of blindness and cancers that they tend to inherit genetically.  It’s important for you to know what might be in store for your dog so you can support them well.

15. Fleas and ticks have made themselves home with your pooch

Image Source: Reddit.com

Fleas and ticks are just part of life when you own a dog.  But making sure you treat them effectively is key to avoiding further problems with your dog’s health.  Not treating them can cause lots of discomfort for your dog including skin irritation, infection scabs, and soreness.

16. Leaving them in your car

Image Source: Reddit.com

Leaving your dog alone in your car is an absolute no-no.  In warmer weather, cars can become as hot as an oven and have the potential to literally bake your pooch alive.  Even if you’re just popping to the store for just a few minutes, or you’ve parked in the shade or left the windows open.  Just don’t do it.

17. Not updating their ID

Image Source: Reddit.com

Now, when is the last time you checked that your dog’s ID and microchip were up-to-date and accurate?  We thought so.  Checking this cannot be overstated.  It is so important because how will you find your pet if it went missing?  And how would rescue centers know who to contact if they were found?  Take this as your reminder to check it today!

18. Not getting insurance

Image Source: Reddit.com

Unfortunately, an emergency treatment for our best buddies is occasionally needed.  In fact, a study found that 1 in 3 dogs need it each year.  And it can be completely unexpected.  It might be a sudden illness or injury, but you’re left with a whopping vet bill that you didn’t expect to shell out for.  And this is where insurance can help.

19. Hemlock grows in your garden

Image Source: Reddit.com

Poisonous water hemlock can pop up in your garden or you can come across it when you’re out on a walk.  It’s highly toxic to dogs and can cause them to have an upset stomach.  In the worst cases, you’ll notice significant respiratory distress, and it can even cause death.  So keep your eyes peeled for this deadly plant!

20. Yelling at your dog

Image Source: Reddit.com

There are so many reasons you shouldn’t yell at your dog.  You can make them feel fearful, anxious, and even excited.  Emotions that we can all agree on as being potentially quite intense!  And feeling these emotions can affect your dog’s behavior significantly, and may make it worse than before!

21. You let your dog run with a stick in their mouth

Image Source: Reddit.com

Dogs love sticks.  They just find so much joy in a game of fetch.  But have you ever thought about the dangers of letting them run with one in their mouths?  Thought not!  Well, injuries like splinters, cuts, and scrapes in their mouth can occur, and this can lead to some nasty infections!

22. Yanking on their choke collar

Image Source: Reddit.com

Many people think that using a choke collar is an effective way to stop their dog from pulling on its leash.  But the thing is, by using a choke collar, you are actually inflicting pain on your dog.  They don’t make the connection between the collar tightening around their neck and you pulling on the leash, so you’re never going to be able to correct this behavior like this!

23. Using the wrong collar and leash

Image Source: Reddit.com

A lot of people aren’t aware that when used incorrectly, collars and leashes can cause quite a lot of damage to a dog’s neck and throat.  Not only this, but collars may cause damage to the nerves in their front legs, thyroid injuries, and even ear and eye injuries!

24. Applying sunscreen

Image Source: Reddit.com

It’s clear that you want to protect your precious pooch as much as you can.  And it’s wonderful that you’ve thought about the sun.  And yes, you should apply sunscreen to your dog to avoid sunburn but beware!  Lots of brands contain chemicals that are toxic to dogs so the advice is to always read the label and do your research!

25. Leaving your bathroom door open

Image Source: Reddit.com

There are so many dangerous objects that we leave in our bathroom.  From cleaning products, to what’s actually in the toilet bowl.  Yep, if you don’t clean it often, you’re putting your dog at risk of infection, including E.coli, and they can also catch other nasty illnesses from us when we are sick!

26. Giving your dog ice to play with

Image Source: Reddit.com

Ice is amazing at cooling us down, and relieving pain, such as from teething.  But is it safe to give to dogs?  Well, in short, yes!  But experts advise dog owners to make sure it’s an appropriate size to minimize the risk of choking and to not give ice, but give water, to your dog if they’re suffering from heatstroke.

27. You let them finish off your table scraps

Image Source: BestFriendsKitchen.org

Giving your table scraps to your dog seems like a great way to avoid food waste, but by doing this, you might be risking their health.  Not only because some human food is toxic to dogs but you might be giving them the green light to eat off your plate.  And nobody wants that!

28. Feeding them booze

Image Source: Twitter

This goes without saying really, doesn’t it?  Beer is very toxic to dogs, and even a little amount can cause alcohol poisoning, particularly in smaller dogs.  And if you’ve ever had a hangover, you’ll know that it can feel like torture!  Well, believe it or not, dogs will also feel the same negative effects as we do.

29. You lack consistency

Image Source: Reddit.com

Dogs act like dogs, and, inevitably, there are going to be some undesirable behaviors that you will want to correct.  But they will never modify their behaviors without consistency from you.  If your routine is lacking predictability, and you let some stuff slide, your dog isn’t going to ever know which way is up and how to behave.

30. Expecting too much from your dog

Image Source: Reddit.com

Dogs have forever been described as man’s best friend.  And there are many reasons why!  They’re incredibly loyal, intuitive, loving, entertaining, energetic, and smart, to name a few of the amazing traits our lovable pooches have.  It’s important to give them a break!  Be patient with them and try to not have so many expectations – they do so much for us already!

Signs You Need A Dog In Your Life

There is a good reason why people call dogs “man’s best friend”: they give us love that is not conditional, they are loyal to us, and they are companions. However, how can you tell if you are prepared to take on the responsibilities that come along with owning a dog? The following are some indications that you could benefit from having a dog in your life.

You have a sense of isolation.
A dog can be a wonderful companion for someone who is experiencing feelings of loneliness or isolation. Dogs are pack animals that thrive on the company of their human companions. They are able to provide you with emotional support as well as love that is unconditional. Numerous studies have demonstrated that having a dog in the home can significantly lessen feelings of isolation and improve one’s overall mental health.

You must get more physical activity.
A dog can be an excellent motivator for its owner to increase the amount of physical activity they get each day. To maintain their physical and mental well-being, dogs require daily exercise; therefore, in order to keep your dog happy and healthy, you will need to get up and move around. If you want to get some exercise and some fresh air, walking or jogging with your dog can be a great way to accomplish both of those goals. It is also a wonderful opportunity to strengthen the bond that you share with your dog.

You are interested in making new acquaintances.
Dogs are wonderful topic starters for conversation and can facilitate the meeting of new people. Meeting up with other people who own dogs may be fun, and you can do it by walking your dog or taking them to a dog park. It is also a wonderful opportunity to get to know new individuals who have interests that are similar to your own.

You want to instill a sense of accountability in others.
Having a pet dog at home may be an effective method for teaching responsibility. Dogs require daily care and attention, including being fed, exercised, and groomed in addition to their other needs. Children may learn responsibility and develop empathy for others by being shown how to properly care for a dog, which is a skill that can be taught to them.

You are looking to lower your stress levels.
Having a dog as a companion may be a very effective means of relieving stress. Interacting with animals helps alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety, according to a number of studies. Petting a dog has been shown to reduce blood pressure and cause the production of endorphins, both of which contribute to a sense of peace and relaxation in the person doing the petting. Dogs also offer a feeling of comfort and security to their owners.

You want to have a sense of security.
Dogs have the ability to provide their owners a feeling of protection and security. They have the ability to bark at prospective threats and dissuade anyone from breaking in by doing so. There are a number of breeds that are known to be extremely protective of their owners and would do whatever in their power to ensure their safety. Having a dog as a companion may help you relax and give you a sense of being protected within your own four walls.

You have the goal of bettering your mental health.
Having a dog as a companion may be beneficial to your mental health in a variety of ways. Dogs are known to alleviate emotions of loneliness and isolation by providing their owners with unconditional affection. They have the potential to give you a feeling of purpose and the ability to make you feel wanted. Taking care of a dog is a terrific method to enhance not only your physical health but also your emotional health and general well-being.

You are in possession of both time and resources.
The decision to care for and pay attention to a dog on a daily basis is a significant commitment that comes with the ownership of a canine companion. Be sure you have enough time and money to provide a dog the essential care it needs before you bring one into your home. This involves giving them food, drink, a place to sleep, somewhere to run about, and veterinary care. In addition to this, you need to be ready to socialize and enrich your dog, as well as give training for your pet.

You are prepared to make a commitment for the long haul.
Because dogs can live for 15–20 years or longer, or even longer, having a dog is a commitment for the long term. Be sure you’re prepared for the commitment and responsibility that comes with owning a dog before you buy one. It is important that you be ready to provide your dog the constant care and attention it need during its whole life.

In conclusion, having a dog as a friend may give numerous benefits, such as enhanced physical and mental health, as well as more opportunities for exercise and socializing. A dog might be the ideal companion for you if you’re feeling lonely, need more exercise, want to meet new people, or want to teach responsibility. All of these things can be accomplished by having a dog.

Austin Pets Alive! | APA!’s New Pet Pals Program Is Creating the Next…

Austin Pets Alive! has long been known for innovating, collaborating, and sharing our knowledge of how to save animals’ lives.

But animal welfare is also about humans—the humans who love and own pets, and the humans who work in animal shelters. That’s why we are so thrilled to introduce Pet Pals, our brand new program for at-risk and vulnerable working-age youth to participate in an 8-week paid internship!

The interns, who are between 16 and 21 years old, are learning the ins and outs of shelter management, and gaining the necessary skills and experience to work in animal sheltering—including at Austin Pets Alive!.

Nine interns form our inaugural class. Starting on February 4, every Saturday they are meeting at APA!’s Town Lake Animal Center campus for four hours to explore the world of animal welfare and learn important professional skills.

Each session includes a lesson and/or training, group discussion and activity, one-on-one mentoring, lunch and refreshments, and walking and playing with animals.

The program also involves resume building, mock interviews, and “building up all those interview skills that a young person probably usually doesn’t have access to before they start looking for a job,” says Alexis Telfair-Garcia, APA!’s Social Work Program Development Manager—and one of the country’s very first social workers on staff at an animal shelter.

“Pet Pals gives us and our community an urgently-needed opportunity to close the gap between human and animal services, and develop the next generation of animal welfare leaders,” Alexis says. “We hope, and expect, that this progress won’t stop in Austin, either—but that animal shelters in other communities will start Pet Pals programs of their own.”

Social work students from the University of Texas and St. Edward’s University serve as mentors for the Pet Pals interns, along with Austin Pets Alive! volunteers.

Dr. Ellen Jefferson, President and CEO of Austin Pets Alive!, says her excitement for Pet Pals is in part due to engaging the interns in the urgent work of saving the lives of cats and dogs—and it’s also about helping these young animal lovers realize their dreams.

“One intern told us she’s planning to major in animal science to become a veterinarian, and believes this program can help her get there. Another said they were moved to participate by the death of a beloved dog, and wanting to save the lives of other animals in this pet’s honor,” she says.

“Pet Pals will open doors and new paths for our interns, and change the lives of the cats and dogs who they touch with their work. We’re so proud to be part of the Pet Pals participants’ journey to do great things for people and pets.”

Pet Friendly Drive-In Movie Theaters In The U.S. and Canada

Pet friendly drive-in movie theaters are a great summer activity. What could be better than watching your favorite blockbuster without leaving your furry family at home?!

It’s hard to beat watching a blockbuster on the big screen. The only thing better is taking your pet along! Luckily, there are hundreds of pet friendly movie theaters throughout the United States and Canada where you can do just that.

If you ask me, it’s time to take your cat (or dog) to the movies!

Drive-Ins: Pet Friendly Movie Theaters

The first drive-in movie theater opened in New Jersey in 1933. By the early 1950s, the United States had thousands of theaters. But drive-ins fell on hard times beginning in the 1970s. Much of the land they were located on had become too valuable to only be used for a few hours each night.

But now, outdoor movies are experiencing a minor Renaissance. Several new theaters have been built in recent years, and old theaters are being refurbished. Some theaters are even positioning themselves as entertainment centers – complete with game rooms, sit-down restaurants, and beer gardens.

And many communities offer pop-up theaters as fundraisers or just plain old fun.

Also fueling the drive-ins’ comeback is the growth in the number of people looking for fun activities they can enjoy with their pets. And outdoor movies are one of the most pet friendly entertainment options out there!

Read on for everything you’ll need to know before planning a trip to a pet friendly movie theater with your pets.

Outdoor Movie Tips For Newbies With Pets

If you’ve never been to a drive-in movie, or haven’t attended in decades, there are a few things you need to know.

Many Drive-ins Are Cash Only

Even theaters that accept debit or credit cards at the concession stand require cash at the box office to keep the line of cars moving quickly.

Theaters that accept only cash are noted in the list below. But check the website for the theater you’re planning to visit to make sure you have enough cash on hand before you arrive.

Arrive Early

Drive-in theaters open at least 90 minutes before the movie starts. Cars usually line up at the entrance (and along the roadways approaching the theater) on busy nights.

Arriving early gives you time to find a parking spot, get something to eat, and walk the dog. Also, popular movies can sell out, and getting there early will ensure you get a ticket!

The Sound Comes Through FM Radio

While some theaters have a few car speakers for nostalgia’s sake, all theaters play the movie sound over FM radio. If your radio doesn’t work, or if you’re worried about the charge on your battery, you’ll need to bring a portable radio with you. (Some theaters rent radios for a small fee.)

Most Drive-ins Show Two Movies For One Price

Nearly every drive-in movie theater offers two movies (and sometimes even three or four) for one price. This makes for a very affordable night out.

Support The Concession Stand

Most drive-ins strictly prohibit you from bringing in outside food. Or if they allow it, they’ll charge you at least $5 for a food permit.

As any drive-in owner will tell you, the movie suppliers take as much as 90% of the box office sales. So drive-ins (as well as indoor theaters) rely on concession sales to keep the lights on.

The good news is that, compared to indoor theaters, outdoor theater concession prices are a bargain. Drive-in popcorn will cost about half of what you’d pay at your local metroplex. And in addition to candy and popcorn, many drive-ins serve hot food like pizza and burgers. Some even sell locally-sourced eats and craft beers!

Modern Cars Aren’t Made For Drive-in Movies

These days many cars have lights that stay on when you’re running the radio or other accessories. Check your owner’s manual before you go to learn how to keep your lights off. If you can’t figure it out, bring tape and heavy paper to cover over your headlights.

And the number one rule of  drive in etiquette …

Don’t Block Anyone’s View

Some theaters direct people to different parts of the theater based on the height of their vehicle. If you try to pull your SUV or truck into the front row, you’ll be asked to move.

If you decide to back your car into your spot and put the hatch back up, bring a bungee cord or twine to keep it from rising any higher than the roof of your car.

And finally, be sure to check the theater’s website to learn about their policies and make sure they still allow pets.

Tips For Taking Your Pet To The Movies

On a lovely weekend night, the drive-in can be a crazy place. Before taking your pet, you’ll want to be sure they feel comfortable with crowds and that they don’t take their guard dog responsibilities too seriously.

Most drive-in theaters, but not all, allow your pet to join you on a lawn chair or blanket in front of your car. And if you have to walk your dog, they will ask you to stay away from the concession stand and play areas in front of the screen. A far corner of the property is usually designated for potty breaks.

READ MORE ⇒ Tips For Traveling With A Reactive Dog

In fact, you might want to bring a flash light in case nature calls for your pup in the middle of the movie.

Most drive-in theaters have the same rules for pets. They must:

  • be on a leash no longer than 6 feet whenever they are outside the car.
  • be friendly or at least tolerant toward other people and dogs.
  • not bark or otherwise disturb anyone watching the movie.
  • be accompanied by a responsible person at all times equipped with the means to clean up after them.
  • stay away from the concession stand or the playground areas.

A few of the theaters only allow pets as long as they remain in the car. Normally I would not consider that a pet friendly policy, but some dogs who dislike crowds feel quite comfortable in their car. That makes drive-in movies a great activity for reactive dogs—as long as they don’t bark every time someone walks by.

While people assume that dogs are the only pets going to the movies, when contacting theaters, we asked about “pets,” not just dogs. If a theater made any mention of cats or other animals, it’s noted on the list.

At the time of this post, the following list of drive-ins were pet friendly movie theaters.
