Free vintage ebook Learning to Sew Fairytale style

THE MARY FRANCES SEWING BOOK – Adventures Among the Thimble People (PDF ebook)

She's BACK! One of the most beloved & popular children's book characters from the early 1900s returns in another CLASSIC story. And while all the Mary Frances books are excellent, many folks say this sewing book is the best of the bunch!

"In this part "fairy tale" and part "instruction book" various sewing implements come to life for Mary Frances, and they teach her how to sew – beginning with outfitting a sewing basket, then learning 10 or so basic stitches, then progressing to a sampler, and then on to doll clothes. The wonderful illustrations sprinkled throughout the book are very reminiscent of the L. Frank Baum Oz series.

This fun book can be enjoyed just as a delightful fairy story, or you can use it as the basis of a hand-sewing curriculum. Don't miss it!

My Kitty Seems to Become More Frisky After Trying Hill's(R) Science Diet(R) Senior 11+ Age Defying(TM) Cat Food BzzGuide « My BzzAgent « BzzAgent

Something fishy might be going on here, lol. Been trying out the brand new Hill's(R) Science Diet(R) Senior 11+ Age Defying(TM) Cat Food because I'm a BzzAgen and kitty seems to be acting more frisky!
Hill's said the food will help keep your favorite cat meowing, playing, and all-around loving during his or her golden years. If it helps at all, I'm all for it.

First Hills says we have to

Set up our Cat and ourselves for Feeding Success
"After reading about the benefits of this new formula from Hill's, we bet you want to run right out, start feeding your cat, and get playing. Not so fast! You need to slowly transition your senior cat from the food he or she is currently eating to ensure your cat will accept the new food."

So we followed the instructions below, because they said: "Senior cats may develop an upset stomach if the food change is too rapid, so it is really important that you follow these instructions completely, both for the comfort of your cat and the effectiveness of the feeding.."

Transition Feeding Guide

Days 1-275% cat's current food; 25% Science Diet® Senior 11+ Age Defying™ Cat Food
Days 3-450% cat's current food; 50% Science Diet® Senior 11+ Age Defying™ Cat Food
Days 5-625% cat's current food; 75% Science Diet® Senior 11+ Age Defying™ Cat Food
Days 7100% Science Diet® Senior 11+ Age Defying™ Cat Food

Tips for a Successful Transition

  • Some cats will have a preference for a certain shape of dry food. If the new food has a different shape than their original food, it may take longer for your cat to accept. (My cats aren't too finicky thank goodness, lol.)
    • Some cats will have a preference for a certain shape of dry food. If the new food has a different shape than their original food, it may take longer for your cat to accept. (No difficulty for my cats to accept it...shape was to my kitty's liking.)
    • If switching from a canned food to a dry food, make sure your cat drinks an adequate quantity of water to prevent constipation. (Mine is used to dry food so this wasn't an issue.)

    The total transition will take 7 days. Make sure you're patient— otherwise your cat could have problems accepting the new food.

Here's what Hill's says about the food: (With some of my comments interspersed)

Just the Facts

11 is the new 6
Want to keep your older cat healthy, active and friendly? NEW Science Diet® Senior 11+ Age Defying™ cat food is the purr-fect (sorry, we couldn't help ourselves) (I personally love puns so I like this, lol) solution:

  • Designed for cats 11 years and older
  • Fights the signs of aging with visible results in as little as 30 days
  • Senior cat will
  • Be more interactive and playful (check as for my kitty)
  • Be more alert & agile (check)
  • Have fewer accidents in the house (not applicable for our outdoor kitty)
  • Extends the engaged relationship cat owners love (I pray it does :) )

  • Available at pet speciality stores (like Petco, Petsmart, or your local neighbourhood pet store) or select veterinarian's offices
  • A revolutionary formula
    The scientists and veterinarians over at Hill's packed breakthrough tailored nutrition for a healthy and happy life into NEW Science Diet® Senior 11+ Age Defying™ cat food. There's:

    • An exclusive bundle of antioxidants that help defend the body and brain against aging
    • Fish oils and sources of omega-6 fatty acids for soft skin and coat
    • High protein and L-carnitine levels for increased lean muscle mass
    • Controlled levels of phosphorous, magnesium, and sodium for optimal bladder health (resulting in fewer accidents in the house)
    • Small kibble that is easy to chew and digest

I shared some great large coupons for the food on and to others, and also the cool guides to feeding your older cat. This time being a Bzzagent helped my kitty so the kids are happy :)

Just in case you need more info, here's the HIll's ad:

The breakthrough nutrition from Hill's delivers the optimal mix of lean protein, omega fatty acids. It's hard to believe, but within 30 days you'll fight the signs of aging. That includes more interaction and play, more alertness and agility, and fewer accidents in the house. Renew the spring in your cat's step. You eat the right things to stay healthy and active as you get older, your cats should too!

Feed your precious pet the easy-to-eat kibble and watch your cat turn back the clock so you both can regain the interactive lives you once knew. With Science Diet® Senior 11+ Age Defying™ cat food, pet and owner will see a difference in mobility and agility. A healthy cat is a happy cat owner, don't you think?

Watch your cat shine, too. Thanks to the formula's perfect combination of protein, fish oils, and other key ingredients, their skin and coat will be healthy, and lean muscle will increase. As you play and snuggle with your revitalized cat, don't be surprised if you forget their real age (at least for a moment!). Who knew turning back the clock could be as simple as feeding Science Diet® Senior 11+ Age Defying™ cat food?"
