PET PAL

PET PAL

Dear Heloise: Hello, I am Max. I was born Sept. 8, 2021, and was rescued by Pasadena Humane. I am a domestic, shorthair mixedbreed cat. My pet parent adopted me on Oct. 31, 2021. I love to play with ribbons and strings.

HEALTH APP

Dear Heloise: Angela H. suggested putting all of her important information, including her medical information, in two address books. A better solution is to use her iPhone if she has one! She can use the Health app to record all her information, including her medical info. The great thing about this is that it can be available to first responders in case of an accident or another emergency, even if you are unconscious.

KEEPING INFO IN YOUR CAR

Dear Heloise: In response to the reader who wrote in about keeping information about their blood type in their car, I don’t want people to worry if they don’t know their blood type. Very few people do, and it’s not necessary. There is no point in keeping your blood type in your car. A blood bank would never go off this information and always types in the patient’s name to be sure that it is accurate. I was the chief head technologist for the blood bank for the Baptist Hospital in Knoxville, Tennessee. (I am now retired.) -- Lee Miller, via email
