I Thought My Cat Was Insane.




Admit it, there have been times when you were convinced your cat was plotting against you and was determined to turn your life into a living hell.

Punishment will never cure bad behavior in a cat. They know that if they are punished, they will not do it again, in front of you. Most cats will wait until you leave the house. Unlike a dog, cats don’t respond to yelling or threats, instead they will run away and wait till later to get their revenge.

Usually by peeing in your shoe. Which was a real problem until I got THIS

Cats love praise, being petted and cat treats. Yelling will only make them afraid of you.

If you stop and think about what your cat wants, it might help the situation. If you’ve been out all day, when you get home your cat is likely bored and wants to play.

You just want to plop into the couch and eat Doritos

They jump into your lap for some Lovin’ and you, not in the mooddrop them on the floor.

They take the hint and when you’re not looking, pee in your slipper or in the case of my Siamese, Ducky, climb on top of the TV and while I was watching it, piss down the back of it.

That dope was lucky he didn’t get electrocuted! But that did concern me so I got THIS

Cats need to scratch and stretch their claws. It is up to you to provide scratching material, like a scratching post. If you don’t he will use your couch. The cat doesn’t care. If they do something and it turns out to be a good experience, they’ll do it again. 

Ergo Ducky wanted my attention so he pissed down the back of my TV.

That certainly got my attention.

But he was also a great friend.

At the time I had a big stuffed chair with big arms that Ducky would sit on next to me as I watched TV. I used to drink beer in a Pilsner glass and on several occasions, when I went to the bathroom I’d come back and find him drinking my beer.

So I swatted him on the butt and he’d wait until my next bathroom break to climb on top of the TV and well…

If you cat is peeing outside the liter box like Ducky, then do what I did and get THIS


Ducky passed away at 14 years. A very sad day. He was a great pet and I have gone through a number of TV’s since, but I’ll never have another Ducky.

Say Goodbye to Big Box Stores


It's a fact that online businesses are the wave of the future. Want evidence? Walmart, Sears and K-Mart are closing hundreds of stores and re-marketing their online business because Amazon is stealing all their customers. 


How? People go to a big box store like Walmart, Target or Sears to find an item they want to buy, like a big screen TV or Computer. Once they find it they take out their smart phone, go to amazon, type in the make and model number, find it at a much lower price with FREE shipping and buy it online.

In reality big box stores have become showrooms for Amazon. It's only a matter of time before they go the way of bookstores and record shops
 

And just as big box stores wiped out the mom and pop stores, online businesses are going to wipe out the big boxes. Which is actually a good thing, because that levels the playing field. Meaning anyone can start an online business and with enough determination and persistence can make a good living working from home.

I know because that's what I did. And still do.

 
But it took 5 years of struggle before my business became a success. And the reason it took so long is because I didn't know what I was doing. And there was no where to go to learn.

So I created this website so others won't have to go through what I did. To learn more go here http://aricommunications.com/online-business-help/
