Healthy for Life

Dear JoAnne: 

I grew up without pets but I was always "adopting" my neighbors' cats and dogs, so I knew once got my own home, I would get a pet.  Last week I signed my first lease and adopted a beautiful tabby kitten. She's so fun and playful - I want her to stay that way!  How do I make sure she stays healthy for life?

The Cat's Caress

kitty-rubHas your cat ever rubbed or butted heads with you?  This is the ultimate sign of affection but it’s also a exceptional form or communication!  Rubbing and bunting are ways to spread pheremones, the cat's ultimate arsenal of non-verbal messages.  So the next time you feel your feline friend brush up against your leg, settle in for cuddle time - you may find yourself purring along!

Transport Your Pet Safely

I live out in the country and have a pickup truck.  My dog, Jackson, loves riding in the back - he barks at everything and is always jumping around, having a great time.  I usually drive really slowly when I have Jackson back there but I was wondering how safe it is. Thanks, Along for the Ride

Indoor Cats Weigh in on Exercise

fatkittyWhen your indoor cat is taking up more room on the couch than you are, it may be time to become your cat's personal trainer.  In addition to putting your cat on a healthy diet, give your kitty a gauntlet of activities - from stalking catnip-laced "prey" to running through a paper-bag maze to chasing the cat dancer - and watch those pounds melt away. ]]> Latest News Wed, 28 Jul 2010 20:13:35 +0000 Microchips & Your Pets

Dear JoAnne,

A few weeks ago my dog went missing and after a lot of searching, posting notices, and going to area shelters, we finally found her at the pound.  We fixed the hole in our fence but I'm afraid she's going to somehow get out again.  Is there anything I can do to protect her and still give her some yard time every day?

Saving Strays

Dear JoAnne:

Today when I was walking my dog, I noticed this stray cat hiding out under our neighbor's house.  She seems scared but I was able to pet her and she looks like she had a home, even though she has no collar or id.  We would love to keep her but my wife is allergic to cats - what should we do?
