Porky and Buddy Pet Health – ‘Pushing Kittens Out The Door’

Porky and Buddy

I am thinking about adopting a kitten, as my 18-year-old “Bumpkus” passed away last winter and there is a huge hole in my house that used to be filled with purrs (and fur). I just read that the Oswego County Humane Society is running a “Special” on kitten adoptions – you can adopt two kittens for $100 instead of the usual $200 that it would cost for the adoption fees. But do you think it is a good idea to adopt two kittens at once? Or is the Humane Society just trying to push kittens out the door with this special?

Buddy and Porky Pet Health – Keeping Dogs Safe This Summer

Porky and Buddy

Porky and Buddy Pet Health – Is Vegan Diet Good For Cats?

Porky and Buddy

I have just decided to switch from a mostly vegetarian diet to a strict vegan diet. So that is fine for me, but what about my best friend, Oscar, my ten-year-old cat? Do you think it’s hypocritical for me to take this step for me but keep feeding him regular cat food which has a lot of meat in it? Is it even possible to switch him to a vegan diet, too?
