  • February is National Prevent A Litter Month

    February is “National Prevent A Litter Month” and in the world of cats, there is perhaps no more important month. The reason that this holiday falls in February is because Spring is also known as “kitten season”.  

    Each year, there are more than 2.7 million perfectly healthy cats and dogs euthanized in shelters. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We all love kittens, but sadly, there are just far too many homeless cats in the world.

    We're helping Feline Fix by Five to help educate cat owners on the reasons why cats should be fixed by five months of age. This is an important issue and I hope you'll help spread the message so we can decrease the euthanization rate of cats and help keep our own cats healthy. 

    Here are five more important reasons you should have your cat fixed before they are five months old:

  • Rare Leptospirosis Outbreak in Arizona

    We’ve just learned that there is an outbreak of leptospirosis among dogs in the Fountain Hills, Arizona area. This highly contagious disease is transmitted through urine and contaminated water, which makes it especially dangerous for dog parks. 

    "The Department of Public Health has recorded 40-plus dogs tested positive since January 2016," Dr. Sarah Bashaw with El Dorado Animal Hospital in Fountain Hills reported to AZ Family. "A lot of the cases started in Scottsdale, but they have been reporting cases as far west as Avondale, some cases in Gilbert, and we've had the first cases I know of in Fountain Hills."

    Leptospirosis is a bacterial infection caused by the bacterium, Leptospira. This is also a zoonotic disease, meaning it can be transmitted to humans.

  • Why the Removal of USDA information Matters

    removal-usda-informationremoval-usda-informationremoval-usda-informationI don't get political on this site very often, but there are a few things I can't forgive - every one of those things deals with those that hurt animals or kids.

    So when the current government administration removed the database of laboratories and breeders from the USDA website last week, you can bet I’m going to be upset... 

    Here’s why this matters: In AZ (and OH, VA, MD, NJ, CT, LA and NYC), it’s illegal to sell puppies in pet stores unless they’re from a reputable breeder. This has not only allowed animal rescues to find amazing homes for millions of dogs and cats, but it’s helped (slowly) start to make an impact on the number of puppy mills around the nation.

    Removing this critical information (all of which was gathered on the taxpayer’s dime), from a public website (also paid for by taxpayer dollars) means we can no longer look up anyone who sells puppies or kittens or horses or any other species, and see if they have any prior citations.  We can't look up laboratories that test on animals and their past citations. We can't track lion breeders or tiger breeders or those who breed thousands of animals in the space of a year under disgusting conditions.

  • The Definitive Guide to Stop Cats from Spraying

    There’s nothing that cat owners dread more than a cat who starts spraying. Whether it’s your own cat or a neighborhood cat that is spraying your doors and cars, spraying is one of the top reasons why cats wind up at shelters. 

    Some believe that female cats don't spray (this is untrue) and others believe that spaying/neutering cats will stop the problem (also untrue - but it will help decrease the frequency). Indoor cats who spray are usually doing it for an entirely different reason. 

    Cat urine has a very distinct odor that repels people and causes other cats to begin spraying, creating a vicious smelly cycle. 

    But, it doesn’t have to be that way. These days, there are many ways to keep this issue under control and your home smelling fresh and clean. Here is your definitive guide to stopping cats from spraying.

  • 4 Bath Salts That May Benefit Your Pets

    We're all looking for ways to improve our lives and those of our pets, and nothing says love like natural care! When it comes to curing dandruff, easing itchy paws, stopping skin irritations and helping pets overcome stress and be more comfortable in their skin, nothing gets the job done like natural salts. 

    Your body absorbs the many minerals from these baths through the skin (dermal absorption). There are tons of benefits for people and pets - from relaxation to detoxification. Salts have many other curative effects. 

    There are many types of salts out there - epsom, dendritic, Dead Sea, European and Himalayan. So, which bath salt should you choose for your dry-coat, itchy, dandruff-ridden pet?

    We take a look at all of them and how to best use them on your dogs and cats.

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.
