I immediately thought how lucky my cat was to have a warm home, a be [...] Read More

Pet Me! Magazine - Friday, November 04, 2016
There are areas where cats can live indoor/outdoor and have a long healthy life. Santa Clarita is not one of those places. Almost daily I encounter people who claim they are unable to keep their cat indoors. Because the cat is insistent on going outdoors, it’s a given – and the cat is allowed outdoors.

By Martha Michael >>> With all the tasty holiday food and the time spent at the dinner table with family members, it can be tempting to give Rex and Lucy scraps and snacks, but it’s not a good Christmas tradition, according to experts. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Pets, or the ASPCA as we know it, has posted a list of dangerous “people food” that are known to go down the hatch of a dog, cat or other pet, at times.
