Alone, Pregnant, & Only Six Months Old

Alone, Pregnant, & Only Six Months Old

  This month I’m deviating from the usual Fantastic Feline to introduce you to someone very special.  She doesn’t have a name. She’s just a baby.  Her family didn’t bother to have her microchipped or desexed, and now she’s lost and heavily pregnant.   I wouldn’t trust anyone if I were you either little cat(…)

The Deadly Paralysis Tick – Could Your Pet Be At Risk?

The Deadly Paralysis Tick – Could Your Pet Be At Risk?

Ixodes Holocyclus With a fancy pants name like that you’d be forgiven for thinking we’re discussing some sort of ancient greek VIP.  Socrates, Aesop, Archimedes, Ixodes…  But no, the owner of this impressive name is none other than the Australian Paralysis Tick.  Far from writing timeless fables or discovering incredible sciencey things, this eight legged(…)

Back when I was in vet school I lived in a little rental near the beach with my husband (then boyfriend – that sounds so weird now!) and my gorgeous Border Collie, Anika.  We called our home the slanty shanty because it was pretty old and the ground had obviously moved a bit over time.(…)

Fantastic Feline – September 2014

G’day September!  It’s been a while.  About 12 months I believe, since I saw the last glorious beginning of spring.  It’s time to share another one of our older felines.  These sweet creatures are just as warm and soft as kittens, but they have much more trouble finding a forever home.  I know Jordan’s perfect(…)

Poochlight Collar Review & Giveaway

This is Yoshi Well this is a puppy pic of him anyway.  Right from the start he’s been Yoshi – Destroyer of Worlds and Maker of Mischief.  Admittedly he’s grown up a bit now, but he still sometimes gets this crazy look in his eyes if he doesn’t get his daily exercise.  This is an(…)
