If, for example, you’re a landscape gardener or remote freelancer they can help you feel less isolated, and be a welcome distraction.   We can all be guilty of getting our heads down and...
  • Good food, good mood

    The old age, you are what you eat, is as true for dogs and cats as it is for us humans. And we’re not just talking about physical health. What goes in their bowl affects their behavior too.   Trainability   Even the sweetest, most good-natured pups and kitties can be a pain to train. But there’s a super simple way you can make them more responsive to your efforts. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a fatty acid that’s added to certain puppy and kitten foods and studies have...

  • Just like humans, cats (and dogs) are what they eat.  Their diet can directly influence their levels of health and vitality.  Food is fuel yes, but it’s also vitally important to overall well-being and there are some things that cats must have in their daily regime. Amino acids are essential nutrients that all mammals need for life in general. Some of these can be created in the body whilst others must be synthesised from the animal protein found in food. These are known as essential...

  • Dogs and Cats………. Who loves me more?   As February is known as the month of love we were really interested to watch the BBC 2 documentary Cat v Dog which was shown over the last couple of weeks.
