In America, we love keeping pets. We care about our pets more than almost any other nation on Earth, so much so that visitors often remark at how kind and loving people in the United States are towards their animal friends.
In fact, we empathize with our animals as much as, or perhaps more, than we typically do with other people. According to a study conducted by AAHA in 2000, 44% or so of pet owners claimed to have acquired a pet at some point purely because they wanted a way to keep one of their already existing pets company.
With cats and dogs in particular, humans have a very close relationship. A huge percentage of Americans own either a cat or a dog (or both), and we go to comparatively great lengths to learn more about them, keep them happy, and enjoy our time with them as much as possib
Cat lovers in England are rejoicing this week. A cat cafe in Manchester, England, have a ridiculously amazing job available: a ?cat nanny? for its resident felines. Job duties for this position include playing games with both the cats and their cafe visitors, cleaning the litterboxes, as well as after-hours care for cats who haven?t gotten out all their energy during the day. ?Our cats are ridiculously needy so they like a lot of attention,? explained Ellie Close, the cat cafe?s co-founder.

They love their felines and often stop seeing the numerous stray hairs that end up clinging to their clothing. Many new owner
Recent studies indicate that for every person born in America, there are more than 40 cats and 15 dogs. Understanding the importance of spaying or neutering your pet can do more than help regulate the pet population: spay and neuter procedures could also spare pets from cancer and urinary tract infections. Every year, local and state governments spend millions to control stray animals; owners are advised to return unwanted pets to local animal shelters for both pet and public safety.
Surprisingly, pets are at risk for breast cancer, prostate cancer, urinary tract diseases, and other forms of cancer. Neutering a puppy at a dog vet clinic is a procedure best performed at the age of two months, or when the puppy reaches approximately three
The idea of a pets animal hotel probably sounds either cute or ridiculous, but for pet owners, pets animal hotels provide a much needed service. Despite the fact that all good, thoughtful pet owners want to spend as much time as possible with their beloved pets, there are times when they need to be away from home and cannot bring them along.
Whether pet owners are leaving the country or staying at the homes of their grouchy, old, animal-loathing step in-laws, the very best doggy daycares and boarding kennels allow them to rest assured that their four-legged friends are well cared for when they are called away. After all, no pet owner want their dog to spend long days held captive in steel cages.

Do you subscribe to any pet magazines? Okay, since you don’t have the dog just yet, I guess there’s no reason for you to. But, once you do get a dog, you should definitely consider subscribing to one. Or just go online and do some research on pet tips.

Because of the companionship and loyalty that the best family pets provide, nine out of 10 owners say that they consider their animals a part of the family, according to the American Humane Association.
