With winter close at hand, you may find yourself wondering “how do I go about keeping my pets warm in the winter”?
With their cotton textured fur and large dewy eyes, rabbits have always been a favourite choice for many pet owners. Resembling something akin to an earth-bound cloud, these bundles of joy are perfect for warm cuddles and generally no-hassle care and maintenance.
As the last few days of Summer melt away, it’s finally time to put away our swimwear and barbecue pits in favour of snug hoodies and marshmallow sticks. In preparing for lifestyle changes befitting the colder season however, we often forget that winter also affects our pets, even those as small as our beloved winged critters.
Cats often give off the impression they’re indestructible creatures, what with their lithe grace and nine lives. Unfortunately, they’re just as vulnerable to the occasional fever like you and I. While their immune systems may be more resilient than those of humans, fever can pose serious health risks if left unaddressed. But how can you tell if your precious feline is under the weather?
A recent study performed by psychologists showed that without a doubt, dogs do feel envy; either in the way humans experience it, or through certain behavior such as guarding their resources or redirecting excitement, jealousy in dogs is inherent.
Cat toys aren’t just for amusement and games for your cat, they are a great way for you to create a deeper connection and strong bond with your cat. Whether simple or sophisticated, cat toys also help give your cat the regular exercise, and physical and mental simulation it needs. Playing with toys helps cats relieve stress, gives them an outlet for their energy, and also gives them to chance to exercise their natural inborn hunting instincts. This makes for a very healthy and happy cat.
Why should your most faithful friend be left all alone at home, while you’re packing to leave on vacation?
Of course, the first thing to consider is what you plan on doing during your travels. Will you be visiting family? Going on holiday to do tourist things? Is it a business trip? While travelling with you pet can be extremely fun, most often they will much rather be left out of any loud festivities.
With the new year underway in full swing, you might sit back and think about ways to improve your life and well-being in 2018. Unexpectedly, some of these could include taking better care of your most faithful companion in life, your dog. Check the list below for simple changes you can make to your dog parenting routine and dog parenting don'ts to avoid in the new year to ensure your dog is living his/her best life!
Another year, and another set of idealistic New Year resolutions. While most of us find ourselves setting lofty goals to be achieved over the next 12 months, most of these often focus on our own personal wellbeing and happiness. But what of those of our most faithful companions? In the process of going through the motions and trying to live our best lives, the welfare of our furry and devilish felines sometimes take a backseat. So what better way of starting 2018 than including better grooming and caregiving for your favourite felines as a part of your new year resolutions (certainly more practical than cutting down on all that Netflix time).
