How To Stop Your Cat From Scratching Your Furniture

Your cat scratching at your furniture can not only leave you out of pocket but also very frustrated and annoyed at your cat for being such a bad little kitty. Cats need to scratch, it is something that cats instinctively do, not as you may think, in order to sharpen their claws, but to remove the old layers of their nails.

Love Your Animal Companion, then Spay or Neuter!

Ozzie, my four-month old Rottweiler peered up at me with his big brown eyes, as I temporarily left him for a very important surgical procedure. As much as it broke my heart to drop off my “baby” at the local humane society, I know it was the responsible thing to do.

What Ozzie doesn’t know is that today is the first day of the rest of his life. He

Don’t Let Your Male Cat Get Pregnant

I wasn’t sure what category to put his under. Either way it’s pretty funny…

I’m not making this up. My sister’s cat, Emus, died! Now, I know some of you cat-haters don’t see the tragedy in this matter. But there is a much deeper story with a practical application. I can’t say that the death of Emus was especially traumatic for me. After all, I’m allergic to cats! I’m
