Auto Accidents Work Injuries Headaches Neck and Back Pain Back & Neck Pain Clinic Animal Feed ADM (MoorMans) Cargill (Southern States) Mid-South Triple Crown Showtime Coolers Knives Tools Pavers Lawn Mower Blades Hunting & Fishing Supplies rf The Weekly Paw Print: October has been designated as Adopt A This week we salute the unsung heroes of veterinary medicine. Im talking about National Veterinary Technician Week. The individuals you see assisting the veterinarian do more than you can see in the exam room alone. Veterinary technicians deliver medications, administer and monitor anesthesia, assist the veterinarian in surgery, collect and run lab tests, and so much more. They do all that they do while remaining patient and compassionate. They never lose sight of what their mission is and why they are there. The veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and the veterinary receptionists make up the veterinary team. Veterinarians rely on their team to care and provide for their patients beyond just the medicine. This week I would like to personally thank my awesome team. I could not do what I do without their help, their inspiration to be the best, and their compassion. It is my privilege to work with each and every one of them. Next time you see a member of your veterinary health care team, give them two paws up! Youre reading a newspaper when suddenly your cat jumps onto your lap, forcing her way between you and the current events. Shes purring and begins to knead your lap, circling around and finding a perfect position to curl into. She is completely oblivious to your desires as she focuses on the push and pull of her front paws. Shes your cat, and she has a need to knead. Why cats knead The kneading behavior begins early in life, while kittens are nursing. As kittens knead their mothers mammary glands, oxytocin is released, causing milk to flow. Animal experts believe other reasons cats knead might include: To show affection To mark territory: Cats have scent glands between their toes on their front paws Separated from mother too early Normal behavior of a female cat going into heat Because kneading represents a period of comfort and safety for kittens as they snuggle up with their mothers and siblings during nursing, cats continue this behavior to display affection toward others later in life. It also serves as a selfcomforting behavior, bringing a feeling of contentment for adult cats. Similar to a child who sucks his thumb long after his mother has stopped nursing, a cats kneading helps him to feel comfortable and bonded to you. Its his way of relaxing with you. Cats leave a scent from special scent glands between their toes when they knead. No study has been conducted to verify the function of that scent marking. Its possible kneading helps to mark an area as safe. Cats have high-level olfactory senses, and like a feline aromatherapy, the cat is working to make your lap smell familiar and relaxing. Its important to remember that, just like you have certain comforting behaviors, kneading is a normal, comforting behavior for many cats. So sit back, relax, and let your kitty make a comfy spot in that lap of yours.

Amy Mann I am from Georgia originally and have always been a Bulldog fan. I think Georgia will win by two touchdowns because they have pretty good defense. Overall I think the game will be a close one, but Georgia is really a second half team and I think that is how and when they will win the game. Mark Harrison I really have no preference who wins the game because I am a Gator fan and always prefer to watch them, however, I think Georgia will win. I dont think that Alabama can stop Georgias running attack. I predict a score of 24-17 with Georgia winning I will support Georgia because I am a fan of the SEC East and, like the Gators, Georgia is in this conference. got more experience. the experience, plus its hard to bet against Nick Sabin. Doug Wise Sabin all the way! Jason Smyth Alabama. It all boils down to experience. I think Alabama should win. I mean, those players play hard, and you have Jalen Hurts as the quarterback. I really think that he gives it his all, and hes motivated to win. I do think itll be a close game. Georgias pretty good. Score? No. I dont want to jinx it.
