Even though having your pal beside your feet might hinder your tasks a bit, there are three solid reasons for following this nationally recognized day. Perhaps pointing these out to your boss will …

Spoiler Alert! There’s no easy way to say this, but there’s no such thing as a hypoallergenic cat. Feline saliva and skin glands contain a naturally occurring enzyme called Fel D1. Fortunately, there are quite a few breeds out there that produce less of this protein and are considered allergy-friendly. The Siberian Cat These frisky, independent kitties have multi-colored coats that are less prone to tangling than other long-haired breeds. Although there is a bit of seasonal shedding with the Siberian, they don’t create as much dandruff. Less shedding means less skin flaking on your furniture and clothes! The owner …

A cat is a very intelligent, curious, and playful animal, and when she is bored, she will keep herself entertained, frequently with destructive behaviors such as destroying furniture with her claws.  Providing Fluffy with constructive and stimulating activities not only helps to avoid this behavior, but it also keeps her healthy and happy as well.  With a little bit of patience and creativity, providing her with activities and toys can be fun and affordable for both of you, and can promote bonding time for you as well.  Empty cardboard boxes and shopping bags left on the floor are instant entertainment, …

Your dog can easily ingest many of the same fruits and vegetables that you and I enjoy.
