Keeping Kitty Happy

Many cats enjoy interacting with their owners and playtime, either indoors or outdoors, is a great way to cultivate a bond between cat and owner.

Gift Ideas for Cats

Cats have always been the type of pet that adopts you rather than you adopting them. They are self-reliant (until they need to be fed, of course), mischievous and very affectionate... when it suits them!

Whether it be a new collar or lead, a fun toy or cosy bed, here are a few suggestions to help you spoil your favourite feline.

People do not respond well to dogs that are overly excitable or disobedient. So, how can this behaviour be prevented and can an unruly dog be re-trained?

Feline Frolics

Cats get bored like anyone else! If your cat is a 'party animal' rather than a 'couch slouch', giving him or her things to do apart from ripping flesh from passing human legs will be of immense benefit.

Greasy heel is characterised by greasy, cracked or inflamed skin on the heels and rear of the pasterns.
