Spoiler Alert! There’s no easy way to say this, but there’s no such thing as a hypoallergenic cat. Feline saliva and skin glands contain a naturally occurring enzyme called Fel D1. Fortunately, there are quite a few breeds out there that produce less of this protein and are considered allergy-friendly. The Siberian Cat These frisky, independent kitties have multi-colored coats that are less prone to tangling than other long-haired breeds. Although there is a bit of seasonal shedding with the Siberian, they don’t create as much dandruff. Less shedding means less skin flaking on your furniture and clothes! The owner …

We’re all aware that our feline counterparts are highly intelligent, and highly strange beings. Cats have shown us that they’re smarter than dogs, and they’ve got their own agenda. Somehow, they’re still full of mystery. Here are some things you didn’t know about your cat! Chirping As A Hunting Technique Felines are able to vocalize over 100 sounds, several of those sounds appear in the form of a chirp. While it is not entirely clear why our cats imitate the noises of rodents and birds, the current belief is that chirping is both a way to initiate play, but more …


A cat is a very intelligent, curious, and playful animal, and when she is bored, she will keep herself entertained, frequently with destructive behaviors such as destroying furniture with her claws.  Providing Fluffy with constructive and stimulating activities not only helps to avoid this behavior, but it also keeps her healthy and happy as well.  With a little bit of patience and creativity, providing her with activities and toys can be fun and affordable for both of you, and can promote bonding time for you as well.  Empty cardboard boxes and shopping bags left on the floor are instant entertainment, …

You’re munching down on a delicious, juicy mixed fruit bowl. Your best friend walks over, staring at you with those adorable, pleading eyes.

Your dog can easily ingest many of the same fruits and vegetables that you and I enjoy.

When you see your fur-buddy standing at the door, wagging his tail and sporting that hopeful look, it’s really difficult to resist. Use that to your advantage to help you meet your own exercise goals. Walking is fine, but jogging is even better. Everybody has days when they just don’t feel like exercising, but that […]


Becoming a best friend and protector to your new bundle of joy is an exciting role that many canines are proud to take on. On the other hand, some dogs aren’t into the whole baby thing at first, and others just aren’t really sure how to respond to the little tyke. Help your pup and your family ease into the process of getting to know each other with some pre-baby preparation. Establishing New Boundaries Before your newborn comes home, your dog needs time to adjust to the new environment. While you may not have taken notice or been bothered by …


Are you finding yourself wondering if you bought a cow instead of a dog? If so, you’re not alone in this dilemma.

Are cuddles–or worse conference calls!–often interrupted by your best pal’s snores?
