Pets

by Stephanie Cameron


Rats are very intelligent and social animals that have complex hierarchical systems within a colony. If you are considering pet rats as a companion animal, it is very important that you bring home at least two rats. Because they are so social, rats very much need same species companionship the same way humans need companionship. Also, like humans, some rats are more reserved while others crave constant attention from their fellow rat friends.

Helping homeless animals is a cause close to the hearts of many. And, reading great books is a great way to relax.
With that in mind, a group of fourteen USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and award winning authors have joined together to create a box set of mystery books with preorder funds going to support three rescue groups. Streetdog Foundation, Northshore Animal Shelter, and Home “Fur” Good.

Kitten season has arrived like a virtual tsunami. Pregnant cats and kittens are coming out of the woodwork at every turn. In one bathroom is my cat with her two kittens and an additional four. Two kittens came from a local shelter and two were rescued by my foster’s husband.

Marmaduke is a seven-year-old blue American Staffordshire Terrier who has been with Valley Animal Center since November of 2016. Though Marmaduke was adopted in 2017, he was returned four days later at the adoptee’s discretion. Due to his friendly nature and contagious smile, Marmaduke has been a staff favorite since the beginning.

I received a call from a lady wanting to adopt a cat, and she explained it was to keep her sister’s seventeen-year-old cat company. She said that her sister had passed away and the cat is her only last link to her sister. While her sister was very ill, her cat was constantly at her side. But now her cat is grieving, and she felt that maybe another older cat will help with this sadness.??

If you have spent a reasonable amount of time studying the effects of CBD for pets, you may have continuously wondered whether CBD oils like Charlotte’s web CBD oil is safe for your dog/cat to consume.

Just after Valentine’s Day, an adorable, fluffy kitten was brought to The Cat House on the Kings with a badly broken leg. We’re not sure how that happened, but we expect she may have been struck by a car. The veterinarian was unable to save her leg, so she’s now had it amputated and has been spayed. Though she’s now a tripod kitten, this doesn’t slow her down one little bit and she is still just as adorable as ever. Isn’t it amazing how resilient cats and kittens can be?

In some ways, dogs are like children. If you have more than one, one will become your favorite. I know parents try not to have favorites and won’t admit it, but it happens, usually to the one that is least able to fend for himself.

This month I am going back in time seven years when my relationship with Feral Paws Rescue began, in February 2012. The first cat I got from the Rescue was a beautiful calico named Caleigh, and it went on from there. Each time Feral Paws Rescue would post on Facebook a black cat in need of saving from a kill-shelter, I inquired to see if they could pull him or her. In May 2012, one such post really got my attention.

Most of the adoption stories you hear from Rattie Ratz end right at the beginning of our ratties’ journey in their new families. We heard about Fantasia finding her forever home last year in KRLM. Let’s see how she’s doing, one year later!
