Echange franco-espagnol

25 04 2017


43 élèves du collège Joseph Anglade de Lézignan-Corbières viennent de rentrer d’une semaine passée à Totana dans la région de Murcia en Espagne suite à l’organisation d’un échange linguistique à l’initiative de Mme Costes, professeur d’espagnol et de son homologue, Mme Ana Belén González, professeur de Français en Espagne.

Nos élèves ont été accueillis chaleureusement par l’IES (collège espagnol) Prado Mayor.

La semaine a été très riche tant sur le plan culturel que relationnel avec les familles d’accueil. Au programme, suite à un week-end d’immersion dans les familles, les élèves ont découvert plusieurs villes au patrimoine historique riche (Murcia, Cartagena, Lorca) et participé à de nombreuses activités sportives et aquatiques.

Nous remercions vivement l’ensemble des personnels des deux collèges et le Foyer Socio Educatif et attendons avec impatience de recevoir à notre tour nos correspondants du 21 au 28 Avril. Notre objectif sera de leur faire découvrir notre région et nos coutumes comme ils ont su si bien le faire.

Everyday Cat Health Tips

7 06 2015

So you adopted a cat? Congratulations! Cats make great pets and excellent companions. A new kitty is sure to bring joy and laughter to your home.

But how do you keep your new furry friend healthy? Check out these cat health tips divided into seven important categories.

1. Food

How much should you feed your cat? First, choose a high-quality food. The feeding guidelines on the side of your cat food bag are a good starting point. Keep in mind your cat’s age. Kittens, adults and senior cats have different nutritional needs. Some cats also have special nutritional needs because of an illness or a food allergy, according to Cummings Veterinary Medical Center. Carefully watch your cat’s weight to make sure you’re not overfeeding them. Cat obesity is a serious problem! Your veterinarian is a great resource, and they can point you in the right direction concerning the best cat food and portion control tips.

2. Water

How much water should your cat drink? The amount of water your cat needs to drink varies depending on their size, activity level, health and diet, but ranges from 5 to 10 fluid ounces per day. Some cats can be particular about their water intake. Their desert-dwelling ancestors get most of their fluids from prey, Catster reminds us, so domestic cats don’t have the same urge to drink that dogs or people do. Offering a mix of wet and dry food can help keep your kitty hydrated.

3. Exercise

Does your cat need exercise? Yes! It might seem like they want to spend most of the day sleeping, but making sure your furry friend is mentally stimulated and engaged through play will make them healthier and happier. It’s also likely to make things more peaceful for you, especially if you see them begging for attention or developing destructive behaviors because they can’t burn off her energy. You don’t have to put them on a treadmill to give her kitty cardio. Hiding treats, dragging string toys for your cat to chase and providing a climbable cat tree are all simple ways to encourage your cat to exercise.

4. Litter Box Habits

It’s not the best job in the house, but cleaning the litter box is one of the most important. You should scoop the box daily and replace the litter entirely as needed — you’ll be able to tell by the smell when that time comes. Most cats take to the litter box naturally, but if yours need a little help with litter box training, we have some tips. The box is also a good indicator of your cat’s health, according to the TheAmerican Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA). Urinating or defecating outside of the litter box could be the sign of a serious health problem. Keep an eye out for cat poop that looks too hard, too soft or has streaks of blood.

5. Scratching

Yes, your cat will scratch. It’s a natural part of their behavior that you’ll have a hard time discouraging. Scratching the wrong surfaces can be frustrating. You can, however, redirect your cat to a scratching post rather than the arm of your couch. You can also discourage them from scratching a spot you don’t want her to by simply applying double-sided tape to the area. You can even make your own scratching post.

6. Grooming

Cats are great at keeping their coats shiny and sleek by grooming themselves. Short-haired cats might need brushing occasionally, but long-haired cats should be brushed more often to help reduce shedding and lessen hairballs. This is the best way of getting rid of fleas on cats. Petcha notes that any changes in your cat’s grooming routine — such as chewing or licking at a particular spot, itching or losing fur — are worth pointing out to your vet as a possible sign of skin problems or allergies. Trimming your cat’s nails regularly can also minimize any damage from scratching. Finally, your cat’s teeth need to be brushed almost as often as yours. Ask your vet about what products and foods to use for dental care at home. You should never give your cat human toothpaste.
