Summer Oil

No, the title does not refer to Olive Oil's cousin.

Star usually gets a little rashy allergy in the spring and fall, usually when the air goes on and when the heat goes on. But the weather has been so weird this year that every time it looks like it's cleared up, it comes back! We've had sweltering heat and back to positively frigid! Sometimes in one week!

One thing that's helping is the coconut oil. We seem to have started something of a coconut oil revolution out in cat world! But we love it, it's doing wonders! As long as we don't forget to give it to her daily.. Good thing she loves it!

In fact, here's some pictures of her daddy spoon feeding it to her!

Whatcha got there, daddy? Something good?
 
 

Mmmm it's MY oil! Yummy! *lickitylicklicklick*

I wanted to add something about the Summer FUNdraiser! I should have mentioned the extra costs for sending to countries outside the USA. I have sent toys to Australia, Canada, Great Britain, France, Austria, and Singapore in previous FUNdraisers. The extra postage for each of these countries was just $3, making a set of toys just $18 (US funds) to each of the countries listed!

If you would like to support Winnie's Wish and get a set of toys and live in a country not listed, just email me at anniclan AT aol DOT com and I'll figure the cost right away. It does seem that toys can go most anywhere for that extra $3, which isn't too bad, is it?

I'll be adding this information to the FUNdraiser post. So please, don't let stop you from donating and getting some toys!

Another thing, it looks like I will be getting some Silvervine so I can give you the option of having either nip or vine in your toys! Of course, if your kitty doesn't like either, you can request them nip and vine free.

I'm trying to make sure I've answered all questions.. Oh! As for how long this will go on, I'm planning on doing a big push at least through August. But as is the case with the other two FUNdraisers, (original FUN FUN FUNdraiser and Christmas) the toys will be available indefinitely. I can make them at any time!

If you have any other questions, feel free to put them in the comments or email me!

We have had good luck with coconut oil too but we don't always remember!

Charlie has some what of an issue with flea allergy. We may try coconut oil and see if it helps.

The coconut seems to do Star a lot of good so Mum may try and get some here in the UK, although we think getting it and getting us to have it could be interesting!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

I love coconut oil but Mommy doesn't remember to give it to me every day. :(

TW doesn't know where to buy the coconut oil locally so we may just have to get it online. I—heh heh—have a little acne problem on my chin. TW thinks it's from sloppy eating habits. I always get food stuck to my chin.

Binga loves coconut oil, but she doesn't really NEED it - it's just a treat when she gets it.

Coconut oil is wonderful for so many things!!

Thank you for your kinds words about our Clifford. We're still in shock and the thoughtfulness of friends really helps.

So nice that she'll take the oil right off the spoon.

meowmeowmans said...

So glad the coconut oil is working so well. :)

Ooh, there's a silvervine option? That is terrific! WE bet lots of kitties will choose that!

Mollie said...

We have seen so much on blogs about Coconut oil, her indoors is going to order some. xx00xx

ello Star, darling, It is fun seeing you getting your special treat! I wish you could be having it just because you love it though, and not cause you're a little rashy (I won't need my suit again, will I? I've never really had a rash before. Do kitties always get treats for them?) Well, I won't worry about it yet. Why not teleport over here. OUR weather is the same everyday--gray, cloudy, 68 degrees. Sigh.
