Buying kids soccer jerseys can be a difficult task when you consider the plethora of options for a buyer. While there are many things to consider when making your decision, there are specific considerations when buying kids soccer jerseys.

1. Sizing
While kids comprise the majority of the nineteen million soccer players, soccer companies only produce a limited number of soccer jerseys in kids sizes. Instead, they focus on the adult sizes where the select teams (and big money) are spent on jerseys. Before you fall in love with a certain style, you must make sure it is produced in kids sizes.

2. Availability
Just because you see a particular soccer jerseys in a catalog or online doesn’t mean it is available to you. Most product comes from China and the Far East, which produces long inventory planning cycles. Unfortunately, some companies miscalculate and don’t buy enough to fulfill demand for kids teams. Since catalogs are released months in advance, the style you select may not be available from the manufacturer. You should always have a few choices.

The Truth about Cat Myths

Just when you think you already know a lot about cats, you may still find it difficult to tell whether a thing about cats is a fact or a myth. Read on to know more about the real deal about common cat misconceptions.

Cats and dogs are eternal enemies.
Fact: Contrary to popular belief, cats can actually develop harmonious relationships with dogs and other pets as well. They can also make very good pets in the home. If you take good care of your pet cat, you will find that it can be the most loving and comforting creature you will ever have.
Indoor cats are unhappy. Fact: Although it may be true in many cases that older cats who have been outdoors can be unhappy when kept indoors, any indoor cat can be happy as long as you give them different stuffs that they can spend time and have fun playing with. Give your furry friend toys and other stuffs, but be sure that these are safe for your pet.
Cats can take care of themselves and are low maintenance. Fact: while cats may project an image of being independent, this does not necessarily mean that they should be given the least care. It certainly is not true that cats can live up to nine lives either. In fact, the average life of stray, undomesticated cats is only three years. Cats also need proper care, nourishment and attention too.
De-clawing and trimming nails are one and the same.
Fact: De-clawing or onychectomy is done by surgically amputating the first joint of each of a cats toe. This procedure is performed so that owners will not have to worry about annoying cat scratches anymore. However, animal rights advocates view this procedure as inhumane and cruel. De-clawing is not the same as mere trimming since the claws will just grow back after a while.

Female cats need kittens before neutering.
Fact: Female cats may have more serious risks when pregnant than when she is spayed. Although many people may want cats to produce kittens, the truth is that spaying can prevent uterine and mammary cancer, formation of ovarian cysts as well pregnancy complications that include malformed kittens and stillbirth. And if you find cat overpopulation alarming, spaying your female cat just might be your option.

Cat Condos Exercise And Fun For Our Feline Friends

Having been rescuing and befriending abandoned cats for over 26 years, I have become very cognizant of the importance of providing and maintaining our furry friends’ once active outdoor lifestyles to their new indoor environment. My current three “wonder cats” – Mikko, Panther and Buddy – used to be very active outdoors; some activities were of a “fending one’s turf”, resulting in the showing of “battle scars”; some were more of a playful nature, ie. running, chasing and climbing. Deciding to transition my kids to be solely indoor inhabitants was due mostly to their well-being and overall health. Because of this I was concerned about how to maintain their active lifestyles, maintain a healthy body weight, and offer a quality of life which was both fun and relaxing.

After succeeding in coaxing my guys indoors (it took me 2 YEARS to finally get Panther to trust me enough to come indoors, and even then continued to be a “process”!), I wanted to offer them a quality of life where I felt I wasn’t depriving them in any way by keeping them indoors, while maintaining their health.

Along with investigating the most optimal nutritional needs for my guys, I wanted them to get the most out of indoor exercising tools. I researched and discovered that cat condos, trees and beds (also known as furniture) offered a specific place for cats to call their own, in addition to providing them with fun, relaxation and most importantly exercise, due to the climbing, jumping, chasing and scratching (most coming with scratching posts) that seem to be common activities.
