I know I’m not alone in slowly assembling a veritable menagerie. Most animal lovers would have a zoo if it were practical!
But sometimes our pets aren’t excited about making friends with other animals. When it comes to dogs, their natural prey drive can cause some problems in our pursuit of a peaceful co-existence.
Dogs enjoy chasing cats, pouncing on rabbits, snatching birds out of the air and diving for fish in the pond.
So can you enjoy other pets if you have a dog? Of course! In particular, let’s take a look at how you can have the koi pond of your dreams without your dog snacking on those beautiful fish.Read More
Tabby cats have a rather unique history. If you have seen a tabby cat, you've probably noticed the distinguished looking “M” pattern on their forehead. Due to this marking, most have enjoyed special privilege over the years as being favored by religious leaders.
While there are dozens of legends about how Tabby Cats received this special marking, today we're exploring those based on Christian and Muslim faiths.
There are many beliefs about how this cat received their marking that span multiple religions and mythos, but those of the Muslim faith seem to be the most committed to their feline friends.Read More
Tabbies are a big part of our lives.
If you follow us on Instagram, you probably know that we have three beautiful full-time tabbies: Cassie, Kyra The Cog and Alexandra. We also have one vocal foster cat we call Kreature. Each of these cats is magnificent and it's about time someone came up with a holiday celebrating their beauty.
And so, in Celebration of #NationalTabbyDay, we're talking about a few fun facts you may not know...
To begin, a tabby is not a breed of cat, but a general way of referring to a coat pattern. In fact, usually “tabby” means stripes, swirls or spots on a cat that is orange, brown, white or grey colored cat. In fact, the word tabby is often used as a generic term for "cat" (just like "hound" is often used as a general term for dogs). Tabby cats are found in a variety of different breeds.
Let’s take a look at the four basic types of tabby coat patterns.Read More
If you're new to bird-keeping, you may not know how important it is to keep your birds toys clean. This is a very basic "how to" list for keeping your birds toys free from diseases that may be transferred to other birds (or you) and ensuring your bird's cage is kept as sanitary as possible.
Keeping bird toys clean and sanitary can be a challenge as they come in so many different types and sizes. However, it’s very important to keep them clean since your bird often has so much beak contact with them.
Birds are well known for being the most sensitive animals of the animal kingdom. They are highly sensitive to cleaning supplies, and in some cases, cleaning solutions can be toxic to birds. We suggest you move your birds to a new cage while you embark upon cleaning their current home.Read More
Catnip (Nepeta cataria) is an amazing plant. It’s been grown for centuries because it has a sedative effect on humans and acts much like chamomile. Best of all, the concentration of its active chemical nepetalactone is reported to be 10 times more powerful than DEET when used as a mosquito repellent! (But sadly, that insect-repelling property only lasts a few hours).
Many cats love catnip, but the sad fact is that not every cat will react to it. In fact, only about 50% of cats have a reaction to catnip; and if your cat’s under three months old, they will have no reaction at all because they haven't developed the equipment to respond. In addition, the reaction to catnip is an inherited trait and if your cat doesn’t have the gene, well, they just won’t respond to the plant.
But not all is lost. If you have a cat that doesn't respond to the favored nip, you simply find an alternative that does work. Here is a roundup of our top five favorite alternatives to catnip:Read More
