Shade Pool

Upon first glance, the girth and features of a British Shorthair may give the impression that they are a slothful, laid back breed. On the contrary, as descendants of British farm cats, this breed is a highly skilled and a mighty hunter.

History - Bred in the nineteenth century, the British Shorthair was a favorite in many households until distinct breeds began popping up in the mid-twentieth century. A few British Shorthair enthusiasts continue tirelessly to ensure this breed does not die out. It wasn't until the late twentieth century, that these wonderful cats were introduced in the United States, where cat fanciers became enthralled with their unusual personality and size.

Appearance - There are a variety of colors and one shade was so popular; it was the only shade and color credited by cat associations for years to come. British Blue was the name of the color of choice, but after World War II, this distinct color of British Shorthairs almost became nonexistent.

Enthusiasts of this breed, wanted to preserve conserve the unique blue hue, bred the remaining blue shorthairs with Blue Persians. This created an increase in the gene pool and literally saved the specific shade from utter elimination. There are different colors to choose from which consist of white, bi-colors, smoke, tortoiseshell, point colors with orange or blue eyes.

The British Shorthair has a roundish head and wide cheeks as well as a thick and relatively short tail. The British Shorthair, also known for its stockiness, is a large specimen of cat weighing in at a substantial nine to eighteen pounds.

British Shorthair Cat Behavior and Characteristics - It is not a cat that demands incessant attention and affection. This breed behavior is highly content to go about its day doing its own thing. The British Shorthair is not suitable for those who desire friendly felines as this breed is not as socially inclined. You are ale to easily satisfy the breed's emotional needs by keeping its food bowl filled and the cat can look after its own entertainment. There is little need to cuddle or entertain this breed in order to keep them content.

As the British Shorthair doesn't need constant attention, it is a good choice for a family with limited time on their hands.

British Shorthair Cat Health Problems - With a long ancestry and lineage, the gene pool diversity of the breed is generally healthy, although there is a problem one should take note of.

Type A Blood is the common blood type of domestic cats; but, the British Shorthair might have a rare blood type, Type B blood. It is an issue of concern should an operation be needed one day. You should have your local vet check you British Shorthair's blood type to ascertain if it is a rare blood type, to decrease the chances of confusion late on.

It is easy to care for and groom your British Shorthair. With the texture of their coat being rough and thick, a once a week combing should be sufficient to remove loose hairs and particles of dirt.

If your short on time, but still want a cat, the unassuming, self contained personality of a British Shorthair is definitely worth looking in to. It's sure to be a perfect fit.

Toad eggs found in swimming pool that was filled with algae, can we keep them, how do we care for them?

We were draining our blow up pool and it began to rain. The pool was chlorinated and had algaecide in it. However, that was about 10 -14 days ago. It has rained and sat in the sun. It filled up with algae so we were draining it. It started to rain so we left it. It did not drain completely. Last night toads left many strings of eggs in it. I teach first grade and would like to keep some to show to my class. Do you think they are viable? Do you think the chemicals will affect them? There is no shade in our yard, do we need to shade them from the sun? We have been having temperatures over 95 degrees lately. Will this kill them? Any help would be appreciated.

when I was a kid I used to keep tadpoles in the garden until they became little frogs and hopped away. All it took was a tub full of water and occasionally some fishfood or similar.
I wouldn't worry to much about the algicide, as it obviously didn't work so it may have gotten too diluted by the rain.
You should provide some shade, however, so that the tadpoles won't get boiled if it gets too hot, if the water gets too hot it will kill them. Not only because of the temperature but also because hot water has a much capacity to dissolve oxygen than colder water.
Definintely leave some algae in there as long as they don't take over or start to decompose they will provide oxygen and also places for the tadpoles to hide and food for all kinds of really small critters the tadpoles will like to eat.
When the tadpoles start to get legs (front legs in addition to back legs) definitely provide some resting places outside of the water as eventually they will drown in water as they loose their gills.
Though for your first grade kids it will be more educational if you get an aquarium and set it up in your classroom and they can watch the process on a daily basis. Use rainwater or let chlorinated water stand for a day or two if you do that. If you type "how to raise tadpoles" into google you will find plenty of sites telling you all you need to know about the subject.
