Printer Use According to Marcus the Cat

One of the great things about kids and animals are there automatic and uninhibited reactions to things. I think that’s one of the reasons we love watching animals and little kids enjoy the world. And hopefully it’s not just vicariously enjoying their silly fun, but making it our own as … Continue reading

Rat and Cat – Kiss and Hug

Ready for another animal friends video? This one features another unexpected pairing – a cat and a rat. There’s a couple of rats actually, but one seems particularly affectionate and intrigued by this feline. In all fairness, Ranj the rat seems to be rather more interested in Peanut the cat, … Continue reading

True Love – Cat and Dog Style

I realized it’s been a little while since I blogged about videos of adorable animal friends. So hopefully you’re more than in the mood for another cute animal pairing. I know there are near countless cute ones out there, but this one seems to be an extra special love fest. … Continue reading

Message Sometimes Received – Childlike Glee a No-No

For many reasons I’ve always really liked that ‘be childlike not childish’ adage. I wonder where, or should I say when, we tend to lose that innate wide-eyed innocence and sense of fun that is hopefully typical of childhood.

A Tripe Down Dog Food Lane

Given the popularity of a post a few months ago on green tripe for dogs (and cats), I thought today I’d look at dehydrated tripe treats. For years we’ve fed ground up frozen green tripe. I’ve even gotten more or less used to the distinctive ‘farm’ odour of the stuff. … Continue reading

As promised yesterday, here’s a fun and simply feel good post. As luck would have it I was just sent this little video today – talk about providence.

Nature’s Cat Food II – Now Chicks to Go with Those Mice

I’ve written previously about feeding whole prey instead of commercial or even homemade pet food, and the many advantages I’ve seen both first hand, and ones that just intuitively make sense to me. Ground whole animal patties are a great alternative, but from a feline perspective, they just don’t sell … Continue reading

What’s New As We Hit Post 100 Today

Hard to believe it’s already been a hundred days and a hundred posts since I started this blog. And yet at the same time, I almost can’t remember not writing here daily. Of course what does that say about my memory then? But once you start doing something you place … Continue reading

No to Hallucinogenic Anesthesia for Animals

Life is best when you and your loved ones all feel great. Nothing drives this point home more than when one member falls ill. And this subject is always easier to discuss when the former is your reality. Sometimes it’s easier to prepare ahead of time for what may lie … Continue reading
