Moving with your pets

Posted by Jennifer on September 9th, 2014

cat-in-box-packing Last month I moved with my pets. It had been over a decade since I last moved, even though I consider myself a “pro” at moving with pets, there were still some surprises! My moving experience has been mostly long-distance moves, the kind that took me and my dogs and cats around the world or across the country. This time I was “only” moving about a half an hour away, but as anyone who’s done a local move with or without their pets before can tell you, you still have to pack everything and plan ahead to make sure everyone arrives safely! Here are some planning and safety tip checklists for locally moving with your pets. Read More

Don’t Shop, Adopt: Inside the exotic pet trade

Posted by Guest Author on August 21st, 2014

adopt-exoticWe love informative infographics that help animals! The awesome folks over at Havahart created the “Don’t Shop, Adopt: Inside the exotic pet trade” infographic below about the exotic pet trade and how it not only harms the exotics but companion pets like dogs and cats as well. Infographics are a great way to learn a lot about a specific topic visually, and this one is full of great facts and figures! Like how even if a baby exotic animal survives transportation, which most do not, they are often sent to buyers who don’t know how to properly care for them. Or how adopting your next pet from a shelter or rescue will not only save their life, but will also help lower the amount of exotic animals that are captured and traded… will also save you thousands of dollars each year! Check out the infographic below for a price comparison of how much it takes to own an exotic pet vs a companion pet and some other great information, and remember, Don’t Shop, Adopt! Thanks Havahart for spreading this important message! Read More

Posted by Jennifer on August 4th, 2014

Friskies-Cat-CelebrityWe all know that the internet was made for cat videos, so it makes total sense that as a result, we have a new category of celebrities – the Cat Celebrity! Have you heard of Grumpy Cat, Nala Cat or Oskar The Blind Cat? What about Tara Hero Cat? Our friends over at Friskies put together the definitive guide to the most influential kitty celebrities on the web so you can keep track of who’s who and which cat will be the next big thing! The Friskies 50 is an index of the most influential cats on the Internet, based on each cat’s social reach and engagement across an array of social accounts. See the full list at www.Friskies50.com where you can see the arrows displayed beside each cat’s position which indicate upward or downward movement from the previous month and a gold star indicates a first time appearance on the Friskies 50. Also, if you know a cat that should be in the Friskies 50, you can nominate them by typing in their name! Check out the fun at www.Friskies50.com Read More
