  • It can be quite distressing to witness fighting fur-balls go at each other hell for leather without any intention of backing down. The hissing, screeching, growling and guttural meowing can often send shudders down the spine. And this behaviour – which is often a territorial dispute – is an irrefutable sign that their interaction is no longer a conversation, it's a full on kitty conflict. Felines are fond of their own space, they're possessive creatures and often very...
  • Cats are renowned for being the kings and queens of cleanliness. They are the demigods of grace, decorum and good grooming within the animal kingdom. They'll spend most of their day pampering themselves so that they continue to look prim and proper. So when imperfections appear, and our kitties don't seem capable of controlling their demise, then it might be time for an intervention. Any sign of dandruff (dry, flaky skin), especially a large amount, is usually a sign that your...

    Happy New Year, to people and pets, we hope you have a fantastic 2019. No doubt you’ve made some resolutions, some of you may have already broken them.

How much more fun would getting healthy be, if you could take your cat or dog along for the ride. Well… you can.   Obviously, you could do something as simple as jog with...
  • Wonderful Winter Walks

  •   Bringing a furry friend to work, not only adds a bit of cuteness to your day, it can also be calming and morale boosting for staff and make everyone more productive to boot!   As well as being beneficial in an office environment, pets can be especially important to those who work alone. If, for example, you’re a landscape gardener or remote freelancer they can help you feel less isolated, and be a welcome distraction.   We can all be guilty of getting our heads...
  • Good food, Good mood

    The old age, you are what you eat, is as true for dogs and cats as it is for us humans. And we’re not just talking about physical health. What goes in their bowl affects their behaviour too.       Trainability   Even the sweetest, most good-natured pups and kitties can be a pain to train. But there’s a super simple way you can make them more responsive to your efforts. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a fatty acid that’s added to certain puppy and kitten foods and...

  • Just like humans, cats (and dogs) are what they eat.  Their diet can directly influence their levels of health and vitality.  Food is fuel yes, but it’s also vitally important to overall well-being and there are some things that cats must have in their daily regime. Amino acids are essential nutrients that all mammals need for life in general. Some of these can be created in the body whilst others must be synthesised from the animal protein found in food. These are known as essential...
  • Hug Your Cat Day is one of those pleasingly straightforward holidays that encourages cat lovers everywhere to grab their feline friends and give them a squeeze, however the moggy devotees among us will not need encouragement to do this, but it is always good to be given a gentle reminder where our feline friends are concerned. There is one clear downside to Hug Your Cat Day, what if you don’t have a cat we hear you say. Well fear not, this day can simply be turned into ‘Hug Someone...
  • On Our Best Behaviour
