So, you want a pet; how to choose the right one When someone tells you they are looking for a new pet, what comes to mind? Dogs and cats are usually the first thing we think of when we think of pets. But there are a lot of other animals people keep as pets: hamsters, rabbits, birds, guinea pigs and more. And the benefits of having a pet are well documented: being around animals or fish increases the production of serotonin ("feel-good" hormone) and decreases the level of cortisol (stress hormone) in your body.

It’s fall. Time to check the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. It’s also time to plan for those winter storms – like this past weekend’s – that can knock your power out or, worse, keep you at home with ice and snow shutting down businesses and roads. While it’s important to make preparations for ourselves and our families, we can’t forget our pets’ emergency needs as well.

Today we address a common mystery: Why does my cat sleep in the sink?

Have you ever seen a litter of kittens or puppies sleeping? They sleep in a pile of fur, touching, with limbs and heads piled on top of each other. As they grow older, many cats continue to seek this tactile stimulation when resting. A sink, box or bag gives them the pressure against their body that they are seeking.
