January is National Eye Care Month!
Your cat's eyes are amazing things! Their vertical pupils allow them to see in only 1/6 the light we require to see. They have a "third eyelid" that helps protect their eyes fram damage or dryness. And you can even tell what kind of mood your cat is in by observing the size of his pupils!
Feline eyes are also subject to problems such as conjunctivitis, ulceration, cataracts, glaucoma...pretty much all the same things that can affect human eyes. Visit our Feline Eye Health section for a full article on your cat's eyes, and to view a few products we offer to help keep them healthy!
As December moves on, the deadlines for ordering products to arrive in time for Christmas are passing. Those vary by product, as Old Maid Cat Lady buys from around 80 different suppliers who all ship directly to you. Those companies are located all over the place, some with multiple warehouses, and they require different amounts of lead time before shipping. And some items may be backordered, as well. Long story short, there's no way to give you one particular date as the last day to shop for Christmas delivery. Shop assured that we're processing your orders as quickly as we get them, and we'll keep you informed when we receive notification of shipment. Make note of your order number and you can also check the status of your order at any time by clicking on the "Track My Order" link underneath the gray kitten at the top and entering that number.
But if you're not sure what to get someone, why not give an Old Maid Cat Lady Gift Certificate? It's actually a code you'll print and give to your fellow cat lover. They're available in denominations of $20, $30, $40, $50, $75, $100, and $200. Your recipient can choose any of our 2,700+ items of his or her choosing. Best of all: you'll have it just as soon as you complete your purchase!
Merry Christmas from Old Maid Cat Lady!
We've been up to some tom(cat)foolery!

Healing the Pain of Pet Loss: Letters in Memoriam
When a person dies, we send condolence cards. We say, "Is there anything I can do to help?" We try to show our compassion: "I'm so sorry. He was such a wonderful person." When a pet dies, however, a person’s grief is too often met by comments such as "Don't flip out, he was only a dog," or "You can always get another cat."
Devastated by the loss of her cat and disturbed by the dismissive attitude that many people seemed to take toward her grief, Kymberly Smith decided to find out what other people had experienced when they lost a pet. Toward this end, she placed notices in two animal magazines (Dog Fancy and I Love Cats) asking readers to share their own stories of loss, their reactions to grief and how they did or did not cope with the emotions they experienced. While she expected to receive quite a few responses, she never anticipated the more than 400 letters she received over the next few months.
Healing the Pain of Pet Loss: Letters in Memoriam is a collection of 38 of these inspiring and often heart-wrenching letters. Representing a wide variety of grief experiences, this one-of-a-kind book takes an intimate look at the way we react to the loss of our animal friends and how others can help or hurt the healing process that follows such a loss. While there is no magic cure for getting over a loss or even adjusting to it, one surprisingly simple method that has helped many people is talking and listening to others who have experienced a similar incident, the people-helping-people dynamic known as self-help. In this sense, Healing the Pain of Pet Loss is a self-help group in a book and while, of course, there is not the verbal sharing that occurs when people are physically together, this book inspires a similar kind of interaction between the book reader and the letter writers. By reading another person’s story of loss, readers will be able to discover how others felt and reacted, as well as how others solved their problems and coped or didn't. With the companionship of the letter writers, readers will also feel that they are not alone in their grief experiences and that they are not abnormal or simply overreacting, something that many of the letters’ authors reported feeling.
Because issues of death and dying invariably raise questions about our purpose on earth and what occurs after life has ended, a special section has been included that discusses how different religions view animals’ place in the world and in the afterlife. There is also an extremely helpful annotated listing of the best Internet resources dedicated to helping people who are grieving over the loss of an animal friend as well as an annotated bibliography of helpful books, a listing of telephone hotline numbers and places to contact for advice and assistance.
This special book is a very comforting resource for everyone who has loved and lost an animal companion. It is also an important resource for people who frequently interact with people who have experienced the loss of a pet such as veterinarians, teachers, psychologists, social workers and counselors. P
Paperback self-help book by Kymberly Smith was released by Charles Press Publishing on January 1, 1997 and has 190 pages.
