exotic-catMost cats are house cats but did you know that feline breeding is a big business producing elegant hybrids with exotic eyes, skin or even ears?   You can find one breed with leopard spots and marble colored hair!  Some breeds have no hair at all which are excellent for allergy sufferers. These breeds can be very expensive costing several hundred dollars.  If the cat is really unusual, it can cost several thousand dollars. There are cat nappers out there who only care about making a buck.  To be sure that your cat is not “catnapped,”  you can get your cats nose printed. Like a fingerprint, every cats nose has a different pattern. After his nose has been printed, you’ll probably even spend more on your new “treasure” and buy him a fancy carrier or cat bed. So if you go for the exotic breeds or a plain old ordinary house cat, they will bring you lots of enjoyment, unconditional love and a whole lot of companionship.

Woodland Parasites

dog-diggingTicks present a unique problem for people who make their home in a wooded area. The issue is further compounded for pet owners. By their very nature, dogs are curious animals that seek to explore the territory around their home. In some cases this can mean picking up a few unwanted passengers. The best way to circumvent this problem is to invest in plenty of flea and tick spray.

In the event that you forget to take precautionary measures, it may become necessary to remove a wood tick from your dog’s skin. Although the process is never pleasant, it’s relatively straightforward. Begin my donning a pair of rubber gloves and taking out a pair of tweezers. Wrap the tweezers around the tick’s head and pull firmly in a straight-out motion. Do not make a twisting motion, or the tick’s head may remain lodged in the skin.
