Cats and Their Allure: What, When, Where and Why


Domesticated cats have been gaining in popularity in the United States. It is projected that by the year 2010 there will be far more cats than dogs. Noted for their independence, cats can also be loving and loyal to their owners. They adjust well to indoor living, take great care in grooming themselves, and are easily trained to use a cat box. Cats, when they?re not asleep, are observers. They stare into corners and spend hours sitting in windowsills. They don?t bark, they don?t whine; they purr. Occasionally, they scold.

Which Breed Is Right For You?


Why does one breed appeal to a person over another? Why do some of us love the size, looks and temperament of a Great Dane and others would never own anything but a Toy Poodle?

Life with the Rat Terriers


I am a happy owner of two rat terriers. They are half brother andhalf sister and other than coat color and size and natural hunting abilities they are not at all alike. The male "Bingo" is bossy and impudent and outlandishly boisterous. The female "Zoey" is shy and somewhat retiring and loves nothing better than to curl up in your lap and be petted.

Our Childrens Story


One we must regrettably share with our children for they most certainly will find out on their own.

Cats Make Great Pets If You Understand Them


Anyone wanting a new kitten should be a cat lover. Let?s face it, folks, cats are just different from dogs. Cats do not usually perform any special tricks, and they certainly do not guard your possessions while you are away. In fact, the only thing you can be guaranteed of by having a cat is that a mouse won?t last long if they creep into your home.

Wisdom... Wolves!


Wolves are magnificent and majestic creatures that have shared this planet with us for possibly as long as 12,000 years. They have a long history as one of nature?s large predators. In the relatively short time that people have taken over almost everywhere on this planet, the habitat for wolves and other species of animal has diminished making it difficult for survival but with the help of environmentalists, wolves have been protected and are making a come back.

Owning a Wild or Exotic Cat; Information, Laws, and Advice


Have you ever dreamed of living with a bobcat or having a pet tiger? You're not alone, and many people share their lives responsibly and safely with such animals. My beloved companion is a African Serval, a very affectionate 33-pound spotted feline.

Media Influence on Public Perception of Exotic Cat Ownership


What makes something news? The fact that you take good care of your pets isn?t newsworthy. Neither is your recent trip to the supermarket; If something is normal, it isn?t news. Only aberrations capture our attention enough to warrant screen time. Why is murder reported on the six-o-clock news? Because it?s unusual; it?s a shocking deviation from routine events. But when we are repeatedly exposed to the abnormal, it begins to seem normal. If we see murder on the news every night, we begin to view it as a common occurrence. This naturally leads to fear of falling victim ourselves, thus we start buying guns and installing security systems. As Gavin de Becker writes, ?We?re hard-wired to entertain every thought of danger that?s put in front of us.?

Living With a Pet Serval


Some sources seem to indicate that living with a serval is no more challenging than feeding your pet goldfish. At the other end of the extreme spectrum, many sanctuaries and animal rights activists paint servals and other exotic cats as unmanageable creatures that no ordinary mortal could hope to deal with successfully. As is usually the case, the truth lies in a rational world between the two extremes.

Safety Tips for Moving With Pets


Which kind is your pet? The pooch who is the first one in the car when the door opens, or the kitty who runs to hide at the first hint of travel? Both kinds face dangers on the road, but there are steps you can take to protect them. Even the happiest traveler can get into trouble, and it can happen even on a short jaunt to the grocery store.
