How to Wash a Cat Without Soap or Other Harmful Chemicals

A step-by-step guide for washing your cat correctly. This is the fastest, safest, and most inexpensive way to wash your kitty. Cats require a bit of maintenance - mostly grooming, and every once in a while it's a good idea to give them a bath. For the longest time, we used "baby" shampoo to bathe our Siberian cat, but the results were always lackluster. With all human and cat shampoos, the results were the same. She would have dull, kind of tacky fur, and she would lick herself constantly to get rid of the smell - even the "unscented" smells. Washing a cat is a tough job, so you want your results to be worth the effort (hint - lock the door and use a sink or laundry tub if you have one.) After combing the internet for a way to naturally clean dishwashers and washing machines, I came upon an "all vinegar" site. It was amazing. I wish I still had the link to share it... Basically, vinegar is amazing and one of the uses listed was washing cats.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Review - The perfect gift for Mother's Day?

If you take a trip to the store, you're sure to see a ton of tablets for sale. Why would you buy one and how do you decide which one to get? I've always wondered that question, and I think might finally have the answer. Staples offered me the chance to review the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, so I headed to the store to find out more information (and look for a protective case.) First of all, the electronics employees are extremely helpful and know almost everything there is to know about smart phones, tablets, and computers. They are friendly and eager to help all of us who are a little less... savvy. The first thing that sets the Galaxy Note apart from the others is the size. It's much bigger than a smart phone, but not as big as some of the larger tablets (it measures 8.3" x 5.3" and weighs less than .8 pounds!) Why does this matter? It's big enough to see full webpages and full documents, but it's small enough to fit in your purse or briefcase.
