Free Blogger Layouts

You don't need to go in search for free Blogger layouts anymore. By free Blogger layouts I presume people mean templates for their blog.

Google are constantly upgrading their free facilities such as Blogger, Google Docs and Picasa Web. Fairly recently they made some big and fabulous changes to their Blogger templates.

You have enough options to totally personalise your blogger blog. You can even change the domain name to avoid having the .blogspot extension in it - use setting>publishing>advanced settings to do this. You'll need a domain name too. But it is good to have Blogger host your website as they have massively efficient servers that are fast and reliable. You can also use Blogger as a subdomain to your main site. This site is a subdomain to Pictures of Cats dot org.

Back to the free Blogger layouts. There was a time when you had to go in search of templates at third party sites. This was because Blogger templates, although very good, were limited. Not so now.

You can change the width of each column, the style and appearance of the template, the fonts in type and size, the background and much more.

There are a host of "widgets" that allow you to quickly add add on html, video, Adsense etc. to make the website look very professional very quickly.

You can built a site and write your first page in about a hour! One last important point. Google likes its own offspring so it favours blogs over other sites in search results provided the post is good and if the keyword has high demand and low supply your posts will be on page one of search results in no time.

One last point. Blogger templates are written by third parties, people unassociated with Google Blogger and often they are imperfect. Some functions don't work properly. Personally I would not recommend any Blogger template. Stick to creating good content and a website that functions perfectly - a Google one.

Cat Ear Mites

Brown gunge. Yes, I know this is a ferret! It does show the build up of dark brown to black ear wax caused by the presence of the cat ear mites in the outer ear canal. This parasite is not restricted to the domestic cat, which makes this photo valid and a useful illustration (I was unable to find a suitable photo of a cat with the condition). Photo Stacy Lynn Baum under a creative commons license. Ear mites (minute crab like creatures) are one of the causes of inflammation of the outer ear canal (scientific term for this inflammation is Otitis externa ). The outer ear canal is the tube that runs from outside to the ear drum (the pathway for the reception of sound), which can be seen when looking at the ear. Otitis externa affects humans and often swimmers as it is called "swimmer's ear" in humans. This YouTube video show ear mites under a microscope. They are not actually in the ear in this video. There are many possible causes of Otitis externa in c

Feline Mange

I'll write about three types of feline mange (a) feline scabies or head mange (b) demodectic mange and (c) sarcoptic mange. The source material is from Cat Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook - the best on the market . Generalised feline mange? Puerto Rico - Photo by Gotham City Lost And Found Feline Scabies - head mange Head mange or feline scabies, is a fairly rare condition in cats, which is caused by the Notoedres mite (head mite) that only reproduces on cats. The female mites burrow a few millimeters (that is a lot) into the skin around the head, and neck to lay eggs, which hatch and lay their own eggs. Their presence and activities causes intense itching that in turn causes the cat to scratch. The scratching will obviously be noticed and it will cause the skin to become red, scratched and worse infected. Symptoms: hair loss and scabs, thick wrinkled skin and grey/yellow crusts form plus the symptoms of scratching. Feline mange (head mange) is contagious and tr

Cat Anatomy

Cat Anatomy - Photo by Curious Expeditions . The picture above was taken at Wax Anatomical Models at La Specola in Florence, Italy. The photograph is published under a creative commons license kindly granted by the photographer. I am sorry if it is a bit gruesome. It is pretty well all I could find as an illustration that was licensed for publication. Cat Anatomy is a very wide ranging subject. The anatomy of a cat is very similar to human anatomy. If you were writing a biology book for students of biology you would go through every part of the a cat's anatomy in some detail. It would be similar to writing a book about the human anatomy. It would be a thick book and pretty boring for your average internet surfer. So, how do you limit such a big subject and make this post meaningful? The answer I think lies in doing two things: Having a quick general look at cat anatomy - an overview and; Focusing on the areas of cat anatomy that are particular to the cat and of parti
