Social Pet Sites


Social media has become such a big part of our everyday lives. It is no surprise that pet lovers can now enroll their four-legged companions on social sites. We decided to research the pet social sites available, and must say we are amazed at the numerous ones out there. Over the next several weeks we will give you a sneak peek into each one we found. The benefits for joining other pet lovers can be very rewarding.

We have listed them in random order; however, there are several social sites that have one for dogs and one for cats, these sites we have kept together.

* * * * * * * * * * collects helpful and hilarious information for the worldly but still infatuated Cat aficionado. A resource for real cat owners who passionately argue the merits of catnip at dinner, have very real opinions on vet costs, and are willing to devote their time and financial resources to please the creature that really runs their households. Catster was founded in 2004 and has answers and advice for all nine lives.

A great feature of the site is that you can find cats for adoption by entering your zip code.

About Author

Devoted pet owner and now, devoted pet editor, Judi worked in traditional offices, keeping the books and the day-to-day operations organized. Taking her dog to work every day for over a decade never seemed odd. Neither did having an office cat. She knows what it's like to train a new puppy and she's experienced the heartache of losing beloved companions. Retired, she currently lives with her spoiled dog and four chickens (who are, interestingly enough, also spoiled).
