10 Possible Reasons Your Cat Is Behaving Badly PDF Print E-mail

If your healthy cat is suddenly peeing on your bed or spraying in your office, if he's taken to running around at strange hours of the night, or mewing inconsolably all night, there are several possible explanations. Of course, you must always take them in for a vet check to eliminate any possible health conditions like blockages or disease. But health problems have been eliminated and your cat is still acting out inappropriately, here are some possible explanations.

Room Deodorizers

Everyone has probably used a room deodorizer in their home, particularly if they have cats. One of the most common places to put diffusers and other such items are near the litter-box. Avoid doing this! It can cause undue stress on  your cats and even make it difficult for them to use the litter box.

Solve This: Instead of placing a deodorizer or diffuser near your cat's box, try one of the helpful Litter Box Deodorizers on the market. You can also tape live charcoal on the side or the bottom of the box or sprinkle the box with baking soda prior to putting cat litter inside.

How to Make A TeePee for Pets #PAW2014 PDF Print E-mail

This week, Tractor Supply Company invited us to visit their store and challenged us to create a unique Do-It-Yourself project that would benefit shelter animals.

This is a tougher assignment than you may think for several reasons. First, it’s hard to create something that is easily cleaned, yet still serves a purpose. Second, we had a budget of $25. Third, I’m not very crafty.

But, I accepted the challenge and sought creative inspiration by embracing Arizona's Native American heritage. I decided to make a pet teepee because of it's unique ability to provide shade, calm pets, and mostly because it's different...

After buying all of my supplies at Tractor Supply, I came in so drastically under budget that I even had enough left over from my $25 budget to buy: THREE giant smoked Jones Knuckle Bones for my dogs, as well as a new brush, and I even picked up a bonus project that shelters can use to make money during the upcoming holiday season! (More on that at the end of the article).

Understanding Toxicity Levels of Natural Cures PDF Print E-mail

When it comes to our pets, we want natural treatments that work. Dogs and cats are notoriously difficult to treat with Western medicine as there is the potential for so many side effects. Oftentimes, when treating one condition, we find ourselves ultimately treating a myriad of conditions. And so, we seek out natural treatments.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation occurring in the field of natural pet care.

The most important message we want to get across to you is that many natural cures can easily become natural toxins when used incorrectly.

Natural remedies, such as essential oils and supplements, are incredibly powerful and a misuse could result in your pets experiencing tremors, organ damage, or death. We support you in seeking out natural cures for your pets, but we also want you to be educated while doing so.

Oftentimes, well-meaning pet parents take it too far. Today, we’re looking at a few terms you should be familiar with and why it’s so important to understand toxicity levels.

When it comes to cat food, you have a lot of choices. The key is to find one that is nutritionally complete, manufactured with high quality ingredients, and most importantly - one that your cats like to eat.

We were asked to try out the new Nutrience brand of cat food. Nutrience is a Canadian company whose pet food is now available for purchase in USA through Amazon. They source all of their ingredients from the best Canadian and US growers. They have a "no bad anything" promise which is backed by the quality North American ingredients they use in their cat food. All of their food is made in small batches, which allows them to focus on quality and maintain their commitment to natural, wholesome nutrition for active cats.

We tried the Grain-Free Turkey, Chicken and Herring cat food. This food is a great everyday diet for all life stages, but we especially love it for our active cats. Nutrience focuses on quality ingredients such as free-run chicken, deboned herring and whole egg, which gives us an idea of why our cats enjoy it so much.

A great everyday diet created for all life stages, Nutrience Grain Free Turkey, Chicken & Herring formula also suits active or sensitive pets, providing:
