  • Halloween Yards You Won't Want to Miss

    I've never been a fan of Halloween. To me, it symbolizes a time of year when I have to stress out over ways to Keep Pets Calm as the doorbell rings for hours on end, and worry incessantly about the small colony of feral cats I feed every day.

    But even I must admit that these clever folks brought back my holiday spirit with the way they decorated their yards! They sure have gone above and beyond to make Halloween a more interesting time of year (and far more humorous!).

    Here are some of the best decorated yards we've seen this year (and information on how you can find the materials to make your own fun Halloween display...

  • Feeding Individual Diets in Multi-Cat Households

    Today we had an interesting (and very difficult to answer) question from a reader who asked us how they can keep their “special diet” cat away from their other cats food. If you have more than one cat, or if you have cats and dogs, this is likely a problem you have faced more than once. No two cats are the same, and often their dietary needs are as individual as they are. It can be very challenging (and often impossible) to keep each feline on a specific feeding schedule and if separate diets are introduced, it can be nearly impossible. Obesity,  diabetes, and urinary diets present specialized challenges. So what’s a pet parent to do? Once again, technology steps in to fix this problem for us! Thanks to some forward-thinking entrepreneurs, and some creative search engine activity from the Pack Leader, we proudly present several solutions to our feline friends (be sure to check out the newly updated article Feeding Individual Diets in Multi-pet Homes)

  • Alternative Therapies to Ease Pet's Arthritis

    Arthritic pain can be as crippling to our pets as it is to their owners, particularly in the dead of winter. If you've noticed your dog or cat moving a little slower these days, they may have arthritis, also called degenerative joint disease (DJD). The ailment is common in older, as well as long-backed dogs and cats. While there are a number of ways this disease can be treated, a combination of prescription medication and natural methods are often considered most effective.

  • PETS Act of 2006: Understanding your pets rights in a disaster

    understanding the pets act of2006 The PETS Act of 2006 was passed to help evacuating owners and pets together. It's a good start - helping to ensure that people can take their pets along with them during evacuation due to a disaster. But, its effectiveness relies largely on your state and their wilingness to make accommodations for pets. It's just not as inclusive as we'd like to see it be. 

    For instance, prvate and public shelters can still deny your pets entry. Hotels can still deny entry. In fact, all that the Act really accomplish was to give states incentive (in the form of funding) to accommodate pets.

    This means, FEMA or the State may choose to build extra pet-friendly shelters. It also requires them to include pets in emergency planning, for instance in federal evacuation on buses, pets should now be allowed. There are a few things they should do if they choose, and if they do, they can apply for DHS funds. If they don't, no funding.

I remember a time when a family friend thought it was funny that we had photos of our pets framed and sitting on a table amongst other knick-knacks. I thought it was funny that they couldn’t understand why we would have framed photos of our pets. Now, I’m not the type to inundate unsuspecting visitors with our loads of pet pics, but I am the type to get a kick out of fun and creative ways to display them. So read on to learn more about the products I found below – they’re fun, interesting, and fairly inexpensive.

 

Photo Books

Lulu.com, a company most widely known as being one of the “go to” book printers for independent authors, recently announced the addition of photo books to their line-up of print services. They have seven different sizes to choose from with pricing starting at $9.99. With a bunch of different color themes to choose from, all you have to do is upload your photos and “drag and drop” them wherever you want them to go. They’d make great gifts for the pet lovers in your life.

Sticker Books

Okay, I’ll admit it. I’ve lived longer than three decades on this earth and a part of me still squeals inside when I see cool stickers. Moo.com lets you put your images into sticker form, meaning you can peel and stick your furbabies’ cute mugs all over the place – holiday letters, laptops, birthday greetings, grocery lists, etc. You could even use the stickers to mark whose food is whose on the containers so no one gets confused. The possibilities are endless. Prices start at $9.99 and when I created my sticker book, I chose the round sticker books that contain 90 stickers for the price I just mentioned. I uploaded four different pictures, but you can upload up to 90 different images! How cool is that? Just ignore the fact that the website says “Business Logo Stickers.”

Magnetic Photo Ropes

If you want to display your pet photos in something a little less usual than a photo frame, get a magnetic photo rope. At 58” long and only $12 each, you can display a handful of your favorite photos for a lot less than it would cost to frame each individual picture. On top of all of that, it’s really easy to switch photos in and out if you get a new favorite you want to add to the rope.
