Interesting Facts About New Mexico

The Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe is the oldest government building in the nation.  The Spanish built it as part of a fortress during the winter of 1609-1610. In 1909, it was converted to the Palace of the Governors History Museum which houses exhibits on Spanish, Mexican, and American colonization dating back to the late 1500’s.

Surface temps on the main lake range from 54 to 66 degrees.

Bathe a Cat?

Cats don’t usually need to be bathed because they groom themselves. They do need to be brushed and some long hair breeds may need to have their fur trimmed. If a cat can’t groom himself properly due to an illness or other reason, a little help is necessary. Make sure there is not a medical reason for their lack of grooming by taking him to the Vet.

 Sometimes cats are a little chubby and can’t reach all the places he used to. I had a long haired cat that couldn’t reach around her neck. I had to keep brushing her and cutting out the mats around her neck.
