Rachel Ray's Nutrish wet cat food has been recalled! Apparently some cats have become ill after eating it.

Save the Earth! It's the Only Planet That Has Cats!


Always remember to check with your local shelter to see what they need. Your donation will go directly to the animals, as a rule, in sharp contrast to some of the large national groups, whose donation income goes toward large administrative salaries and other expenses, not always for animals. But to be sure, be prepared to check out the shelter. Not all of them are as honorable as they proclaim.

June is also National Pet Preparedness Month. This month, timed for the first month of hurricane season, people with pets are urged to make preparations in case they should be hit by a disaster…and that includes making plans for what you would do with your cat in case of a hurricane, tornado, flood or other natural disaster.

The weather has been brutal so far this year, with many storms and even flooding throughout much of the U.S. This past week there were several tornadoes near Denver, Colorado (close to my neck of the woods). No matter where you live, it's always a good idea to have a disaster plan in case something forces you out of your home. How would you take care of your pets?

10 Most Intelligent Cats

Is your cat one of the ten most intelligent breeds?
Take a look at this list and see how the different breeds stack up! In my opinion, intelligence is not always breed-specific. As with people, mental ability can be greatly influenced, for better or worse, by how one is treated, the quality of one's diet, and whether individuals are given good learning experiences.
