Dog Star of the Month – November 2014

Dog Star of the Month – November 2014

  I know, this one is a little late!  Better late than never I say, and I have loads of great excuses!  I won’t bore you with them all now, other than to say I’m up to my eyeballs in gorgeous kittens, working hard, studying hard, and raising two pretty special little boys all at(…)

Newborn Kittens Make Everything Okay

Newborn Kittens Make Everything Okay

Dolly A few weeks ago a beautiful, shy little cat was brought into my veterinary clinic.  You can see her story here.  In my initial calculations, she would stay for around a week, have her bubs, then head to Animal Aid who would do what they do best and find them all loving forever homes.(…)

Fantastic Feline – November 2014

Fantastic Feline – November 2014

There’s just something about twins, am I right?  This month I don’t have a fantastic feline, I have TWO!  If I didn’t currently have Dolly and her four little fluff nuggets hanging out at my place I’d be very tempted to snap up these adorable boys myself.  But I won’t. Because everyone has to draw(…)

Dog Star Of The Month – October 2014

Dog Star Of The Month – October 2014

    I’m an absolute sucker for working breeds.  This gorgeous guy is actually out on foster because the shelter environment is all a bit overwhelming for him.  Smart and loving, he’s absolutely perfect for someone out there, is it you?  If you’d like to meet him, just give Animal Aid a call to organise(…)

Love That Pet – A Review And Special Offer

Love That Pet – A Review And Special Offer

I was recently approached by Michala from Love That Pet, an Aussie pet care website that has recently opened it’s very own online store.  Michala asked if I’d be interested in reviewing a couple of products from the Love That Pet store as well as the process of ordering and delivery.  In return she has(…)

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(…)

Dog Star Of The Month – September 2014

Dog Star Of The Month – September 2014

Okay *takes a deep breath* We’re halfway through September 2014. Do you know what that means?  It’s Spring here, my backyard smells like Jasmine, the tulips are blooming, the footy bogans are preparing for the AFL grand final, and *gulp* my baby boy is turning one. Tomorrow, actually. Unfortunately I don’t think putting it in(…)

Pussweek: A Pawesome Magazine With Cattitude

Pussweek: A Pawesome Magazine With Cattitude

Today I’m writing about something a little different, a little left of centre.  And it’s not really about pet health.  If you like cats, and/or you possess a sense of humour, please stay for the ride. Through some magical alignment of the planets, the interwebz has brought me into contact with an amazing writer by(…)

Separation Anxiety In Dogs – This One’s Personal

Separation Anxiety In Dogs – This One’s Personal

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.(…)
