Most cats are known for going crazy over their food. Sometimes, they act like they haven’t been fed in days and scarf their kibble or canned meals down in mere minutes. This is why it can be so alarming to wake up one day and discover that your cat is not the least bit interested in its food.
Many dog owners are not simply one-pet kinds of people. If you’re making the decision to add a new puppy to your family when you already own an older dog, it’s important to think carefully beforehand. While getting a new pet may be extremely exciting and fast-paced for you, it must be a slow and calculated transition for your older dog.
As humans, we understand the concept of dreaming as stories and scenarios that our brains create while we are asleep. Our brains are full of activity throughout the night and conjure wild images and creations, usually during the rapid-eye movement (REM) stage of sleep.
Dogs do a lot of weird things, but perhaps one of the strangest, most irritating things they do on occasion is scoot. Yup, that’s right—the awkward, contorted-looking motion wherein your dog scoots its bum across your freshly-cleaned carpet, possibly leaving a nasty odor or stain behind.
Holidays are a time of fun and cheer for many, but they can also be a time of stress and fatigue. Just like you may be feeling overwhelmed and exhausted from party planning and the whirlwind of guests coming and going from your home, your pets can also feel this way.
Cats are known as temperamental animals; one moment, they could be cuddling you on the couch, and the next, they’ll be across the room, not wanting to be touched. For this reason, it can sometimes be difficult to understand what your cat wants or what it is trying to tell you.
Taking your pup to play at the dog park can be a lot of fun. You’ll get the opportunity to meet new dog owners, and your dog will have the chance to run around, burn off some steam and socialize with other dogs.
If you venture down the cat toy section of a pet store, you’ll notice that a lot of the toys will be branded with the word “catnip” on them. Catnip is a familiar term to pet owners, as it is well-known to produce a “high” effect in cats, but the reason for the effect is much less widely known.
Cat owners love to spoil their precious feline companions. You buy them toys, catnip, cozy beds, tree-like perches and much more. However, it’s all too common among cat lovers to notice that your cats want little to do with these things day after day. One thing you are sure to see your cat gravitate towards after unpacking all its new goodies, though, is the box they came in. Yes, that’s right—not the expensive cat tree or the luxurious heated bed you just set up. Instead, your cat is sure to make a beeline for its packaging, climb in and never want to get out.
