The Twilight Bark Blog

The Twilight Bark was the from the movie “One Hundred and One Dalmatians”. In the movie the Dalmatian parents Pongo and Perdita use the the “Twilight Bark” to ask for help from the other dogs in England. It was a way of getting news out among the dog community quick.

So in essence, this blog is where I’ll get news & information out to people in the pet community! As well as share my adventures as a pet sitter!

Prolonging the inevitable….saying goodbye to our pets.

Posted by on Apr 16, 2014 in Cat Care, Dog Care, Miscellaneous, Pet Care, Pet Sitter, Pet sitting, The Twilight Bark | 0 comments

No matter how we try to prepare ourselves it is never easy to lose a pet. It has been a very rough couple months for me & my family in regards to our pets. My new kitten Cleo fought a long hard battle to beat Parvo. I had to face the possibility she may not make it because there was only a 1% survival rate. My sister lost her 12 year old kitty Cassie to cancer in early March. Then 2 weeks later I lost my best friend of 14 years, my cat Kizmet (aka Kizzy) to lung cancer. It was a roller coaster of emotions and 7 years since our family had...

Posted by on Mar 11, 2014 in Cat Care, Miscellaneous, Pet Care, The Twilight Bark | Comments Off

Two weeks after adopting my kitten Cleo in January 2014, we took on the battle of Parvo head on & beat it! Cleo was in the 1% of survivors. Along the way she caught a secondary infection and the veterinarian mentioned testing her for FeLV, FIV, and FIP. But then she seemed fine after given antibiotics. She was given the all clear & the veterinarian gave her the 2nd combined FVRCP vaccine shot which protects against Feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia. Cleo spiked more fevers for almost a week! Now in hind...

Micro-chipping Your Pet Isn’t Enough

Posted by on Feb 12, 2014 in Cat Care, Dog Care, Miscellaneous, Pet Care, The Twilight Bark | Comments Off

So many pets are micro-chipped that are adopted from rescues & shelters. Pet owners also get their pets “chipped” by their vets as well if the breeder or rescue didn’t already do it. But that little device won’t do you or your pet any good it it’s not registered and kept up to date. When a pet is adopted from a rescue or breeder the micro-chip is pre-registered to that breeder or rescue – NOT you! When you take your pet home you have to contact the micro-chip company & “register” the...

This Pet Sitter got stuck in the snow!

Posted by on Jan 31, 2014 in Miscellaneous, Pet Care, Pet Sitter, Pet sitting, The Twilight Bark | Comments Off

Last night was honestly one of the scariest I’ve had in my 15+ years of pet sitting! Chicago has been getting pounded by snow since December. People are not keeping up with their driveways & walkways! I went on a consultation to meet a new client in Barrington, IL last night. Our appointment was at 7pm so it was dark out. I looked at their location on Google before leaving & plugged their address into my GPS. The roads were clear & it hadn’t snowed so I decided to take my Corolla. As I pulled on to their street I...

New Furry Family Member

Posted by on Jan 27, 2014 in Cat Care, Miscellaneous, Pet Care | Comments Off

I’m excited to announce that there is a new addition to my fur family! I’ve had BAD kittenitis the last few years. I gave in a couple weeks ago and decided it was time to adopt my Torti (Orange & Black) kitten. I put the word out to St. Sophia’s Forgotten Felines & Open Doors Animal Rescue, and made sure to tell my friends. I even sent pictures of my previous Torti cat Karley who passed about 6 years ago & the type of markings I wanted. But January isn’t exactly kitten season. So I figured when the time...

The Effects of Feeding Wildlife

Posted by on Jan 21, 2014 in Cat Care, Dog Care, Miscellaneous, Pet Care, Pet Sitter, Pet sitting, The Twilight Bark | Comments Off

Providing wild animals with a steady, human-supplied food source can lead to problems for both the animals and humans. You should refrain from feeding the wildlife for a number of reasons – one such reason is that it attracts mice and encourages them to search for additional food sources and enter the building(s). In addition, there are many other good reasons NOT to feed wildlife including: When young wild animals are taught to depend on a human-provided food source, they may not fully develop essential foraging skills. Animals who are...
