The plight of feral cats has received some much needed publicity recently when the Loews Hotel group reversed a longstanding policy on providing a safe harbor for feral cats at two of their Orlando properties. The story gained national attention after it unleashed a firestorm among animal lovers in general and cat bloggers in particular...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: The issue of how to deal with feral cats raises a lot of controversy. Ingrid's perspective is a win-win; return feral cats to their environment but without their breeding abilities.

Grief – what we feel on the inside.

Mourning – the public showing of grief.  Grief gone public.  What people see when the bereaved is crying, is angry or yelling; a physical showing of hurt in a variety of other ways with the loss of a precious love...


Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: To mourn properly means to understand mourning. This is the first step on the grieving journey.

I think this is the end of the debate when it comes to the appropriate, “natural” diet for dogs.

Google “natural dog diet,” and you’ll typically see sites with people extolling the virtues of feeding dogs raw meat with bones and making claims about how much healthier their dogs are on this “more natural” diet...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: If you want to start a debate, ask what's the best way to feed a dog. Some say follow the wolf model and feed only meat. Some say dogs have been domesticated far longer than that and grains are ok. Here's some new evidence. What do you think?

Newspaper articles and television programs labeling cats as mass killers and the reason for bird declines, have been all over the news this week, from The New York Times to ABC News, reporting on research published in the online journal Nature Communications. Without questioning the integrity of the research report, these and dozens of other news outlets have helped manufacture a fake debate that outdoor cats are the number one killer of birds in this country...

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: There has been quite the flurry of controversy lately about pros and cons of cats on our continent. Dangerous waters to wade in. Love of cats, love of birds - makes for quite a shouting match. Here's one side of the story.

Unless your kitties are all from the same litter, chances are good the issue goes back to diet (still goes back to diet, even if they are related). There are two types of diabetes – type I is juvenile onset (most common in dogs and young humans), type II is adult onset (most common in overweight humans and cats)...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Pet parents ask the best questions - this question was asked by a surprised pet parent when she discovered all 3 of her cats were diabetic. Let's explore what it's all about.

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: The Chi Institute in Reddick Florida sets the standard for Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine in the western hemisphere.

Animals and our pets can be a great way to reduce our every day stresses and anxieties. It is not easy to deal with our fears and anxieties; however, spending time with animals can makes us feel better. Here is a list of ways of how our pets can help us to better cope with our fears, anxieties, and stresses and why it’s good to own a pet...


Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Stress and anxiety can easily overwhelm. Sometimes, the way through it is simple. But, in the stressful moment, it isn't always easy to think of the easy ways through stress. Stan's suggestions involving pets are common sense, and easy - so, if you feel anxious, follow Stan's steps, hug your pet, and take a deep breathe.

Recently I wrote about a veterinary nutritionist who was promoting gluten and grains in dog food in an interview with an industry publication...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi:  Millions of dollars are spent on pet food advertising each year. Some of this money is spent "training" veterinarians. This makes seeing through the advertising to the hidden truth difficult. Dr Becker shares some information here to help us see what is really important. Our pets deserve the highest quality ingredients.

The United States is a nation of pet-lovers — an estimated two-thirds of our households include pets, many of them treated as cherished family members...

Editor's Note: Humane Society of The United States President, Wayne Pacelle investigates why so many Americans love their pets, yet participate in acts of cruelty against countless animals everyday.

I can’t help but notice the abundance of articles dedicated to workplace stress.

Bottom line: Workplace stress is a very real phenomenon that can bring about an array of health concerns. It’s no secret that stress is a major contributor to employee absenteeism and low morale, which can result in a substantial loss of productivity...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Those of us with pets in the workplace know how animals relax us and make us all feel better. But, as the person in charge, it also becomes obvious that pets can distract the staff. Which is the bigger winner? Derek Murphy shares some great discussion.

Animal Holistic Health & Relationships

by Linda Webber

As is the case with all animals, their past experiences have helped to shape their personality and behaviour. Most animals have been traumatised in some way. Separation anxiety, shock, physical pain, are all common life experiences. Many owners are unaware of these aspects of their animal’s history, as they predominantly focus on its physical condition...
