Home Is Where the Hound Is (Cat Too)


Did you know that according to a 2009 Gallup Poll 76% of American households own pets? And according to one question on “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire,” 64% of pet owners consider themselves to be “Mom” or “Dad” to their pets.

At one point, an animal control officer that met Frosty in my yard (we live on fenced acreage) commented that, from her experience, she didn’t think Frosty had ever had an owner prior to my adopting her.

She was NOT a dog and did not act like a dog.

In this geographic area and at this time of year, pet owners are concerned about the adverse effect the soaring summer temperatures may have on their pets, specifically cats and dogs. I know every pet parent realizes the importance of providing plenty of water, and for outside pets, plenty of shade. Indoor pets may also have an increase in their environmental Fahrenheit as we all try to keep electric bills lower by raising the indoor thermostat. But for the house cat or dog, this is seldom a problem, even if your pet has long hair. [Read more »]
