Cat’s have so many different ways of expressing how they are feeling. The placement of their feet and tail, ears, whiskers, and how they shift their body weight all give us clues into how they are feeling. When reading body language, we want to look at the whole cat and all of their body language signs. Some pets can give mixed signals, so you want to consider all of the signals they are giving you.
Conflict is the Mother of disagreements. This is especially true in our multi-pet homes when favorite possessions or places need to be shared. There are a few simple things we can do to reduce distress between our pets.
Some of us now have some extra time at home with Covid-19 and don’t want to expose ourselves by going out to the pet store for extra dog treats. This is a great time to learn a new skill and make at home pet treat to show our pets some extra love!
When our pets get bored, they start to get into behaviors such as making more noise, chewing and clawing items they shouldn’t, and start to get into trouble! By tapping into those instincts and channeling them in a constructive way, we can have calm and happy pets.
When you are thinking of bringing home a new pet you have so many decisions to make! From breed, place, and even time of year it can be easy to feel overwhelmed.
