How To Outsmart A Cat – in 5 Steps

In a previous post I wrote about the challenges of having 2 cats and their differences. The biggest challenge to date has been with our cat Lloyd. Lloyd loves food! Lloyd would do anything for food! I believe when Lloyd is eating, he is thinking about when and where his next meal will be. Because of Lloyd’s obsession with food, his need to loose weight, his obsession with Lily’s food, a food that makes him sick,...

Well I can finally enjoy my backyard again, laying in the sun, watching the birds and squirrels invade my space, and sniff all the grass that was buried under snow for all too long!   How else do I know spring is finally here? I’m itchy! Yes, it’s dreaded allergy season...

Dog Nutrition and Feeding – The Overwhelming Selections

Dog Nutrition and Feeding The Overwhelming Selections We all want what’s best for our dogs. That I’m sure, at least I hope, is the one thing dog parents can agree on. In my opinion, one of the most important things we can do for our dogs is to ensure they are eating a heathy, well balanced diet specific to them and their individual needs. But saying that, just taking a walk down the pet food isle can be an overwhelming...
