Human children go through a teething process where they lose their “baby teeth” and grow in their adult teeth. While we are all familiar with this process, many people don’t realize that cats do a similar thing.
Almost every pet parent fears the day when they open the door of their home or accidentally leave a backyard gate open and their beloved cat or dog darts out and runs away. In their panic, pets can wander quite far from their homes without any way of knowing how to return.
Dogs seem to have a strange fascination with all things weird, smelly or downright distrusting. Not only do they love to sniff them or even eat them, but they sometimes do something even worse: They roll around in them.
Today’s world is busier than ever. Between work, social events, children’s extracurriculars and so much more, you could be running around all day. Add weekend trips or vacations to the mix, and the average individual is facing a lot of time away from home.
Although many people consider cats to be “inside” animals, an increasing number of pet owners are allowing their cats to roam around outside or are taking them on outdoor adventures. This can be great, as long as your cat’s temperament allows for it.
We’re all accustomed to the standard “meow” a cat lets out now and then, but a cat’s “vocabulary” extends far beyond this simple sound. Some cats are extremely vocal, chirping, trilling and meowing to anyone or anything that will listen. Other cats are much quieter and will only make noise when they want attention or something is amiss.
With the spring and summer heat intensifying in the sky, most pet owners are packing a tube of sunscreen with them for their outdoor adventures. But have your thought about how you’re going to protect Fido’s skin?
The loss of a beloved pet can be devastating. When you’re used to your pup running to greet you after a long day of work or a fluffy cat winding between your legs as you cook dinner, the quiet and absence following its passing can be unsettling and heartbreaking. No doubt, it will take time to come to terms with your loss.
Just like in humans, our four-legged friends can develop the painful condition that is arthritis. Inflamed, painful joints force our pups to slow down and move with caution. Arthritis may even make them reluctant to exercise at all.
Cat’s don’t always understand the concept of personal space, meaning you’re often subjected to a face full of stinky cat breath. While you can’t expect your kitty’s breath to smell like flowers, its breath should not be completely intolerable, either.
