You are herecats
Imagine eating the same diet from infancy all the way through adulthood? As we move through life our needs keep changing – from the amount of calories we must take in to the balance of nutrients that keep us healthy.
“Our pets have similar needs,” says Dr. Mike Bondar, Veterinarian and Host of Animal House Radio.
If you love your pet cat very much and want to provide the best for it, then make sure to get the best cat litter for it. This is as much important as providing good food and shelter to your feline. Cats can be very choosy about the litter they use and so one must make sure to provide them with the best one possible. Finding the best one in the market can be a tough job especially when your local pet store is flooded with dozens of varieties of cat litter.
We expect certain changes to occur in an animal's body as the animal ages. These changes may not be the same in each animal species. In some animals (e.g.; toy breeds of dogs) changes in the heart are common, whereas in other animals (cats), the kidneys may be one of the first organs to show signs of aging. We can help older animals to adapt to these changes in a variety of ways: diagnosing problems early, use of appropriate medications and supplements, modifying the cat's environment, and changing the way in which we interact with our older friends. Change in nutritional needs
As dogs age, their metabolism changes and their need for calories decreases.
I was in Louisiana. I had just lost my beloved cat of 19 years and was in mourning. I had a large, large yard... about the size of a football field with a 4-foot chain link fence. For 5 months I was feeding 3 feral cats, one mother cat and her two babies.
Toronto, ON (May 4, 2009) - Fiercely determined, courageous and tenacious. These are a few of the characteristics describing the four amazing animals Nemo, Ace, Sophie and Jarod inducted into the 41st annual Purina Animal Hall of Fame this morning in Toronto. Honoured in a formal ceremony at PawsWay Pet Discovery Centre, the permanent home of the Purina Animal Hall of Fame, each of these animal heroes demonstrate how the unique bond between animals and people can ultimately save a human life.
My wife and I are the proud human parents of two outstanding specimens of felinus domesticus.
Now those of you who recall your high school biology should know that to really pinpoint the subspecies, one must add a third word or "trinomial." Unfortunately, we simply haven't a clue about our cats' origins. We do, however, have evidence that one of our cats is the sole surviving member of a hitherto unknown breed. In such instances, you may know, the individuals who make the discovery have the honor of creating the trinomial.
