    Friend got a "Bengal" and I am unconvinced....

    Hi everyone. An acquaintance of mine recently posted on Facebook that she has finally gotten a Bengal kitten. To me, it looks exactly like a regular tabby you'd find at the shelter. Am I being overly critical or is it possible it's actually a Bengal? Sorry for the quality of photos, these are...

    Orijen And Acana To Be In Petco

    The Champion Facebook page just announced they will be in Petco stores in the US. I'm annoyed by this lol. They took themselves off of Chewy after they partnered with Petsmart, stating they only work with specialty shops. I had to stop feeding Orijen when they made that change because of...

    Ripley The Jardine's Parrot

    I have had a few parrots over the years, but currently I just have one - Ripley! I was browsing Craigslist one day (as I am guilty of!) and saw this "conure" listed for $100.

    Jasmine

    I brought Jasmine home 17 years ago. Ever since then she has been my cuddle buddy. The only one at home who would watch scary movies with me. A pain in my side as often as she was my best friend. She was everything a cat should be: mischievous, friendly, getting into trouble, cuddly, a brat...

    Hi all, Jasmine is doing better now that we've identified more proteins she is reacting to. We've so far been able to find that chicken, some fish (sardines so far seem okay), and turkey all make her throw up and/or lick off the fur from her stomach.

    Tips To Get Cats Eating Primal Frozen Raw?

    We found a store 45 minutes away that carries the frozen Primal pronto food for cats. We got the rabbit formula as we are still trying to figure out intolerances, but neither of my cats like it! They have been on a 90% wet diet now for about 3 months, with only a little dry for an overnight...
