Kitty Heimlich

Actually, the picture below is from Pet Alert. Its the kitty version of the heimlich maneuver. According to the site:

"If you can not remove or see the object or your pet is struggling too much to allow you to examine the mouth (and it is small enough) then pick your pet up by its hind legs, turning it upside down and shake. Slapping the back while shaking may to dislodge the object."

I sure hope Mom never has to do that to me!

Adan tagged me for a cool meme. Mom promises to help me with it tomorrow.

wow, i hope that i never am in that position. you're right, choaking does NOT sound like fun. thanks for the linky. we have a first aid book in my first aid bin, but this way we can just put the page in and not have to look it up in case of emergency.

Okay ... I promise NEVER to choke 'cuz I've got a short an' stocky body ... Danglin' from my back legs would hurt.

I would never let Kate pick me up like this, even if I was choking!
