Student Experiences During the Winter Season

The winter holidays are not the most welcoming due to snowfall and extreme coldness. Consequently, students are bound to experience doldrums and winter blues (Ochs, 2016). As such, students typically feel the need to have getaways. Nonetheless, most students operate under a tight budget and thus cannot afford numerous holiday options available. In this way, the best way to maximize enjoying the winter holidays is joining friends and plotting to undertake different activities such as hiking, road trips and coach-surfing activities. Collaborating with friends makes the events cheaper through cost sharing. Tips for students who want to travel on winter holidays but do not have much money include embarking on camping getaway, hiking and coach-surfing among others.

In the first place, students without much resources could plan for a ski trip. Such a trip will require having a cabin at the mountain slopes. The trip is a fun getaway to the identified slopes as students will join to rent a cabin (Vacation Ideas for Poor, Broke, and Starving American College Kids, 2016). The larger the number of students joining the group going on the trip the lower the cost incurred. Alternatively, the student could make an arrangement with a lodge and share the cost among the friends for better amenities at competitive prices. Making the arrangements before going on the trip will help save since the students will carry their drinks and snacks. The students ought to not forget to bring their board games, hot cocoa and cards to pass the time. This idea is primarily practical and excellent for learners living in mountainous regions close to slopes.

The following cheap alternative that has consistently emerged as enjoyable is a camping getaway, particularly when a tent is readily available. Students will carry their tents or ask friends to contribute in getting a cabin (Ochs, 2016). Similar to a ski trip, the larger the group going for camping, the greater the economies of scale. The students should also buy groceries and other camp items and arrange for cheap undertakings. These inexpensive activities comprise hiking, kayaking and whitewater rafting. These projects are outdoor adventures that may prove extremely enjoyable for mates living areas with scenic forest areas.

Students may also go for winter holidays to amusement parks adventures. In the amusement parks, the students could ride the roller coasters among other excitement rides (Tan, 2016). In the occasion the students’ lives far from the park, they should drive towards the park before they day intended to be spent at the park. Similar to road trips, students will share the gas expenses and a hotel room if they plot to visit the park for the second day. Parks occasionally give students different rates that are commonly suitable.

Further, the student under a tight budget could also take up a couch-surfing expedition. The team is most appropriate for students who like adventuring and taking risks. Also, the student should be brave and enthusiastic of connecting with individuals and getting to areas that are prized (Vacation Ideas for Poor, Broke, and Starving American College Kids, 2016). Couch surfing is an excellent value holiday as it is unrestricted and the individual participating partake the significant part of introducing the visitor to the local places. Couch surfing is a gamble and the visit may be lucky enough to win a reward. Nonetheless, it is impossible to identify the precise result of couch-surfing. Irrespective of the dangers, couch-surfing is an attractive alternative since there several individuals ready to welcome visitors and show them around.

    My 5-year-old Bobby and I have had a fair share of challenges in dealing with her weight issues that almost got overboard. We had made numerous trips to the vet, but nothing seemed to work, and I was desperately looking for an ultimate solution for my feline’s overweight issue. While researching online, I found reviews on the best cat food for weight management and that was a turnaround for bobby and I. Strictly healthy diet, and exercise has worked for us thus far. First things first, I stopped giving Bobby treats and instead followed a strictly healthy diet. I changed her food brand to one that offers specific diet based on age, breed or particular requirements for instance obesity. I made sure that my pet’s formula contains more proteins and less fat which is highly recommended for the overweight feline. The number one ingredient for an overweight cat should be a meat source preferably chicken, beef or turkey. Also, many cat owners would consider reducing the quantity of food they feed on their felines as a way of reducing their weight. Well, this is a misconception; reducing the food ratio implies that you cut your feline’s intake of vitamins, minerals, and proteins. As a result, increasing the chances of contracting other deficiencies. Exercise is also vital in reducing your cat’s weight. Initially, we would take a walk with Bobby around the park and at the neighborhoods and she would hardly walk. However, after a few days of frequent strolls, Bobby got used and gradually increased our walking distances. With the exercises, Bobby lost a pound in under two weeks, and the feeling was just incredible. I also gave her more toys to play with when indoors and yea! We were getting closer to my cat’s desirable weight, day by day. Note that you should not overwork your pet in a bid to have her lose weight but rather exercise on her own pace and gradually, she will improve. Do not get caught up in the prescribed science diet which is quite expensive and worse still most contain ingredients that do not aid your cat’s weight loss.  Most of the prescribed vet’s diet contains wheat and grain sources as the main ingredients. All you have to do is to look at the components of any cat food, and you will be able to determine whether it will aid your cat’s weight loss. This way you will reduce the number of visits to the vet and certainly the amount you spend on these visits. Strictly healthy diet, regular exercises and avoiding giving your cat treats is also you need in managing your cat’s weight. This has worked very well for us, and after a month of following the weight loss management program, Bobby lost a whopping five pounds. You can do it as well.

    I have an 8-year-old chubby indoor cat whom for years we have had to struggle with weight issues. I have used quite a number of products that have not had much impact. So recently, my vet recommended that I switch to Nutro Cat Food to weight loss. I also checked out a number of Nutro cat food reviews to see what other cat parents were saying about this brand. And from the face of it and after using it for several months, I am impressed! My fur baby is now very active, hairballs have reduced drastically to almost none and what is, even more, is her coat has become softer and shinier. Nutro cat food also has some urinary health benefits. I remember my cat would scream in pain because of the stones. However, he hardly gets clogged up now, and I believe she would be stone free soon. Nutro also has a decent nutritional profile. Some of the great ingredients include a ground whole wheat, chicken meal, Menhaden Fish oil, Vitamin B12 Supplement, folic acid, natural flavors among others. Here a few pointers in using Nutro cat products based on experience: If you are new to using Nutro cat food, introduce the food to your kitty gradually. Any vet will tell you, and the reason is pretty obvious. The abrupt change of formulas to any pet makes it difficult for digestion process to take place properly and even worse she may feel very sick. For my kitty, I mixed the Nutro cat food with the Purina Cat Chow reducing the later gradually until she was completely off the Purina Chow. Nutro cat food does not have any preservatives, and that is a plus for any cat. However, it reduces the shelf life of Nutro cat food significantly unlike other commercial brands containing preservatives. It is recommended to store the product correctly and use it up quickly, to avoid the cat food getting stale. Due to its perishability, store Nutro cat food well to prevent it from getting stale rapidly. It is advisable to store Nutro cat food in a tightly sealed container and place it on a cabinet or a high shelf. Also, the storage area should be a cool and dry place.  For any cat owner struggling with kitty’s weight issues, consider Nutro cat food and both of you will love the fantastic results. It has been my best cat food for weight loss, and my cat is at the vet recommended weight, and already out of danger. If you are considering giving your cat this brand, make sure to get the right formulas and follow the right feeding direction given by your vet or written on the packaging bag.

    On several occasions, I have seen my cat vomiting or if I did not see the action itself, I came across a little pool of cat puke. Most parents get really worried about their cat vomiting, while others take it as a normal thing. Either way, pet parents should understand that their cat’s stomachs are incredibly sensitive and anything foreign that gets into their system will have to find its way out through vomiting. By anything foreign, I mean things like plants, ingested hairs, or constant change of diets that they are not used to. Here are some of the remedies that you can take to prevent cat vomiting Keep the cat feeding bowls clean Water bowls and feeding containers often accumulate dust and bacteria, and if not washed regularly, these foreign objects may get into contact with the cat’s food and cause illnesses. Bacteria are invisible to the naked eye and once they get to the cat’s digestive system, the cat will throw up to remove these objects. To be on the safe side, wash the bowls before and after feeding. It would also do justice to keep these cat utensils in a safe place where it will not get into contact with dust from the litter box. If you have a small budget, you can get a cat water fountain that allows the cat to drink from a running water source. Switch to a premium cat food One big mistake that we pet parents make is to go with cheaper cat food just to save a few bucks for the chocolates. The effect of this is that you will end up giving your cat low-quality formulas that are not balanced for their age. Instead, buy modest cat diets that cost anywhere from 20-50 bucks and will last you for several weeks. I recommend going for the best cat food to prevent vomiting that is specially made to solve digestion-related conditions. These diets are prepared with the right proportion of ingredients that are beneficial to the cat’s body. Make sure to check the guaranteed analysis of each diet to see if they meet AAFCO’s nutritional guidelines. Keep detergents away Cats are curious creatures and they will test and taste each item they find on the way. Too bad if they get detergents and other washing soaps on the way. And the effect of this is that they will have to find a way to vomit any ingested soaps. Make sure that after washing, you keep these detergents away from your pets (and kids) before they get into contact with them. But if they do, make sure to contact your vet immediately for ways to solve that problem before it’s too late. Human foods are not meant for cats Some cat owners assume that, by giving cats human food and beverages, they are showering their babies with love. But they are wrong! Human food is meant for humans and can never be good for cats. Some human foods and drinks such as chocolates and alcohol may even be poisonous to cats, so it is best if you keep human foods away from cats. Conclusion If your cat has been vomiting, try any of these remedies to keep your cat happy again. For a long-term solution, I recommend transitioning to a premium diet that is prepared hygienically and contains the right balance of ingredients.

    Cats are one of the cleanest animals ever! Truth be told. Cats spend 15% of their time grooming and removing any foreign objects on the body. That why it is impossible to find a dirty cat, even on a rainy day. As a pet owner, you should ensure that the cat’s environment is friendly to the cat’s grooming nature. The first step in helping your cat maintain the cleanliness is to buy an automatic cat litter box. Not only does a litter box provide a hygienic environment for your cat, but it actually healthier for your fur baby. Here is why I recommend an automatic cat litter box over a manual litter box: Hygienic An automatic cat litter box ensures hygiene for your cat and kids. This machine is designed in a way that after the cat has finished the call of nature, an inbuilt sensor activates the rake that self-cleans the litter. Every time the cat goes to poo or pee, it enjoys a clean “toilet” at all times. If you have adventurous kids at home, a self-cleaning litter box ensures that your kids will not get into contact with dirt. Plus, the litter dust will not get its way into the house. No more odors! An automatic litter box drastically reduces odors since the cat waste does not stay for long in the box. In the traditional litter boxes, the cat waste can stay for a long period until the owner disposes the litter, and this increases the chances of the waste odor spreading to the house. With an automatic litter box, even when the owner is away for a week, the litter box will remain odorless. Most of these machines are connected to a waste source, such that the wastes are deposited in a sealed waste compartment. Some brands like Cat Genie automatic litter box should be connected to a bathroom, such that the flushable cat litter is flushed directly to the toilet. Easy cleanup With a traditional litter box, you have to remove the waste several times a day or at least once every day, or else the waste odor will spread to the house. However, with an automatic litter box, the rake sifts through the litter and deposits the waste in a waste compartment below the box. This waste can be removed and discarded every fortnight if you have one or two cats. This makes the litter box cleanup an easy task that you can do during the weekend, rather than worrying about the waste every day. Plus, leaving the waste every day poses a health hazard to you and other family members! Privacy Do you have a shy cat that refuses to honor the call of nature because humans are watching? You should get an automatic litter box for her. The litter box is enclosed in a way that no human can watch when the cat is busy inside there (because humans can be curious sometimes). The privacy boosts the cat’s self-esteem because it can do its business without worrying that someone else is watching over them.

    On several occasions, I have seen my cat vomiting or if I did not see the action itself, I came across a little pool of cat puke. Most parents get really worried about their cat vomiting, while others take it as a normal thing. Either way, pet parents should understand that their cat’s stomachs are incredibly sensitive and anything foreign that gets into their system will have to find its way out through vomiting. By anything foreign, I mean things like plants, ingested hairs, or constant change of diets that they are not used to. Here are some of the remedies that you can take to prevent cat vomiting Keep the cat feeding bowls clean Water bowls and feeding containers often accumulate dust and bacteria, and if not washed regularly, these foreign objects may get into contact with the cat’s food and cause illnesses. Bacteria are invisible to the naked eye and once they get to the cat’s digestive system, the cat will throw up to remove these objects. To be on the safe side, wash the bowls before and after feeding. It would also do justice to keep these cat utensils in a safe place where it will not get into contact with dust from the litter box. If you have a small budget, you can get a cat water fountain that allows the cat to drink from a running water source. Switch to a premium cat food One big mistake that we pet parents make is to go with cheaper cat food just to save a few bucks for the chocolates. The effect of this is that you will end up giving your cat low-quality formulas that are not balanced for their age. Instead, buy modest cat diets that cost anywhere from 20-50 bucks and will last you for several weeks. I recommend going for the best cat food to prevent vomiting that is specially made to solve digestion-related conditions. These diets are prepared with the right proportion of ingredients that are beneficial to the cat’s body. Make sure to check the guaranteed analysis of each diet to see if they meet AAFCO’s nutritional guidelines. Keep detergents away Cats are curious creatures and they will test and taste each item they find on the way. Too bad if they get detergents and other washing soaps on the way. And the effect of this is that they will have to find a way to vomit any ingested soaps. Make sure that after washing, you keep these detergents away from your pets (and kids) before they get into contact with them. But if they do, make sure to contact your vet immediately for ways to solve that problem before it’s too late. Human foods are not meant for cats Some cat owners assume that, by giving cats human food and beverages, they are showering their babies with love. But they are wrong! Human food is meant for humans and can never be good for cats. Some human foods and drinks such as chocolates and alcohol may even be poisonous to cats, so it is best if you keep human foods away from cats. Conclusion If your cat has been vomiting, try any of these remedies to keep your cat happy again. For a long-term solution, I recommend transitioning to a premium diet that is prepared hygienically and contains the right balance of ingredients.

    My 5-year-old Bobby and I have had a fair share of challenges in dealing with her weight issues that almost got overboard. We had made numerous trips to the vet, but nothing seemed to work, and I was desperately looking for an ultimate solution for my feline’s overweight issue. While researching online, I found reviews on the best cat food for weight management and that was a turnaround for bobby and I. Strictly healthy diet, and exercise has worked for us thus far. First things first, I stopped giving Bobby treats and instead followed a strictly healthy diet. I changed her food brand to one that offers specific diet based on age, breed or particular requirements for instance obesity. I made sure that my pet’s formula contains more proteins and less fat which is highly recommended for the overweight feline. The number one ingredient for an overweight cat should be a meat source preferably chicken, beef or turkey. Also, many cat owners would consider reducing the quantity of food they feed on their felines as a way of reducing their weight. Well, this is a misconception; reducing the food ratio implies that you cut your feline’s intake of vitamins, minerals, and proteins. As a result, increasing the chances of contracting other deficiencies. Exercise is also vital in reducing your cat’s weight. Initially, we would take a walk with Bobby around the park and at the neighborhoods and she would hardly walk. However, after a few days of frequent strolls, Bobby got used and gradually increased our walking distances. With the exercises, Bobby lost a pound in under two weeks, and the feeling was just incredible. I also gave her more toys to play with when indoors and yea! We were getting closer to my cat’s desirable weight, day by day. Note that you should not overwork your pet in a bid to have her lose weight but rather exercise on her own pace and gradually, she will improve. Do not get caught up in the prescribed science diet which is quite expensive and worse still most contain ingredients that do not aid your cat’s weight loss.  Most of the prescribed vet’s diet contains wheat and grain sources as the main ingredients. All you have to do is to look at the components of any cat food, and you will be able to determine whether it will aid your cat’s weight loss. This way you will reduce the number of visits to the vet and certainly the amount you spend on these visits. Strictly healthy diet, regular exercises and avoiding giving your cat treats is also you need in managing your cat’s weight. This has worked very well for us, and after a month of following the weight loss management program, Bobby lost a whopping five pounds. You can do it as well.

    I have an 8-year-old chubby indoor cat whom for years we have had to struggle with weight issues. I have used quite a number of products that have not had much impact. So recently, my vet recommended that I switch to Nutro Cat Food to weight loss. I also checked out a number of Nutro cat food reviews to see what other cat parents were saying about this brand. And from the face of it and after using it for several months, I am impressed! My fur baby is now very active, hairballs have reduced drastically to almost none and what is, even more, is her coat has become softer and shinier. Nutro cat food also has some urinary health benefits. I remember my cat would scream in pain because of the stones. However, he hardly gets clogged up now, and I believe she would be stone free soon. Nutro also has a decent nutritional profile. Some of the great ingredients include a ground whole wheat, chicken meal, Menhaden Fish oil, Vitamin B12 Supplement, folic acid, natural flavors among others. Here a few pointers in using Nutro cat products based on experience: If you are new to using Nutro cat food, introduce the food to your kitty gradually. Any vet will tell you, and the reason is pretty obvious. The abrupt change of formulas to any pet makes it difficult for digestion process to take place properly and even worse she may feel very sick. For my kitty, I mixed the Nutro cat food with the Purina Cat Chow reducing the later gradually until she was completely off the Purina Chow. Nutro cat food does not have any preservatives, and that is a plus for any cat. However, it reduces the shelf life of Nutro cat food significantly unlike other commercial brands containing preservatives. It is recommended to store the product correctly and use it up quickly, to avoid the cat food getting stale. Due to its perishability, store Nutro cat food well to prevent it from getting stale rapidly. It is advisable to store Nutro cat food in a tightly sealed container and place it on a cabinet or a high shelf. Also, the storage area should be a cool and dry place.  For any cat owner struggling with kitty’s weight issues, consider Nutro cat food and both of you will love the fantastic results. It has been my best cat food for weight loss, and my cat is at the vet recommended weight, and already out of danger. If you are considering giving your cat this brand, make sure to get the right formulas and follow the right feeding direction given by your vet or written on the packaging bag.
