Having a Pet Gets Rid of Your Loneliness

Acupuncture is often credited to the Chinese who have used it for thousands of years, however, there are records indicating that it was used in Egypt well over 5000 years ago. The practice of acupuncture involves inserting needles into specific points that are located along the body's energy meridians and correspond to specific internal organs. Acupuncture has proven effective in relieving muscle spasms, increasing circulation, and pain relief among other issues. Aside from needles other methods of stimulation can be used, such as applying pressure or heat to the points.

You'll need to be cautions if your dog has sensitive skin. Select the right soaps that are pet-friendly for cleaning their supplies.

Once the frame of the cat door is installed in a wall or door, leave the "flap" off at first. Have someone stay inside with your cat while you go outside. Call your cat through the "hole" (cat door frame without the flap). When he goes through and comes to you, praise him lavishly and give him a food treat. Now have the person inside the house call him through the "hole." When he gets to them, they should praise lavishly and offer a food treat as well. Do this at least 3 times and no more than a dozen. After this, your cat will know there is a hole in the wall or the door especially for him.
