Please don't forget to clean your dog's paws after walks!

De-icers can be highly toxic to both cats & dogs so it’s important to clean it off so the toxins are not ingested. It’s also important to clean off any ice balls that gather around the paws as these can become very sore and painful for your pet.
We suggest filling a bowl with a few inches of tepid water, dip each paw into the water and rinse their pads thoroughly, then dry with a towel.

From The Woodland Trust:
"We've employed some four-legged help as we continue our restoration of Fingle Woods in Devon this winter. Over 50 hectares of conifer plantation are being thinned to improve the long term quality of the remainder of the plantation and provide a buffer to adjacent areas of native woodland which are already regenerating."

A Cornish Rex is a breed of domestic cat. The Cornish Rex has no hair except for down. Most breeds of cat have three different types of hair in their coats: the outer fur or "guard hairs", which is about 5 cm long in shorthairs and 10 cm+ long in longhairs; a middle layer called the "awn hair"; and the down hair or undercoat, which is very fine and about 1 cm long. Cornish Rexes only have the undercoat. The curl in Cornish Rex fur is caused by a different mutation and gene than that of the Devon Rex. It originates from Cornwall, Britain.

The coat of a Cornish Rex is extremely fine and sometimes curly. Their light coat means that they are best suited for indoor living in warm and dry conditions, as they are sensitive to low temperatures. Cornish Rexes like to stay warm places such as computer monitors, light bulbs, laps and shoulders.

The breed is sometimes referred to as the Greyhound of the cats, because of the sleek appearance and the galloping run characteristic of the breed.[1] These cats tend to stay playful and kittenish throughout their long lives. Some Cornish Rexes like to play fetch, race other pets, or do acrobatic jumps. The Cornish Rex is an adventurous cat and is very intelligent. It can readily adapt to new situations and will explore wherever it can go, jumping into refrigerators, examining washing machines, etc. The Rex is extremely curious, seeks out the company of people and is friendly towards other companion animals. It is a suitable pet for timid children.[citation needed]

Cornish Rex cats come in a wide variety of coat colours and patterns, outlined in the breed standard: solids, including white, black, chocolate, orange and the dilutes blue, lilac and cream; all forms of tabby including classic, mackerel and ticked tabbies, bicolor "tuxedo" coat in many colours, tortoiseshell, "smoke" colours and the colour-point pattern standard in the Siamese breed.

In 2013 researchers identified the mutation that defines the Cornish Rex breed. Genome-wide analyses were performed in the Cornish Rex breed and in 11 phenotypically diverse breeds and two random bred populations. A gene on chromosome A1, the lysophosphatidic acid receptor 6 (LPAR6), was identified to have a 4 base pair deletion. This induces a premature stop in the receptor which is absent in all straight haired cats analyzed. LPAR6 encodes a receptor essential for maintaining the structural integrity of the hair shaft. In humans LPAR6 mutations result in a wooly hair phenotype

Introduction

Online Pet Accessories

Comets Corners is an online pet accessories shop with a difference, and was set up in loving memory of Comet, my beautiful horse, who was tragically diagnosed with Equine Grass Sickness in 2006 and sadly put to sleep three days later. The aim of Comets Corners is to raise awareness of animal welfare issues and to support and raise the profiles of animal welfare charities and organisations. We donate a minimum of 10% of proceeds from every sale to our 'Sponsored Charity' and help with fundraising and events.
