The day was filled with amazing speakers, such as our own Dr. Kasandra Garner, who...

The Fourth of July and its accompanying celebrations can be a traumatic experience for pets. It is also the number one holiday for pets to get lost. Even if you keep your cat or dog indoors during this festive holiday, it can easily turn into a "fright night" for your pet. Many cats or dogs can become fearful, anxious, or stressed with loud noises such as thunderstorms, fireworks, loud music and large groups of people celebrating.

Enriching Your Cats' Nine Lives 

By: Anastasia Galbo

Poe and Lucifer, our brother and sister duo love long walks in the forest, sunny spots to lie in, and a good tree to climb.

Poe (4 years) and Lucifer (10 months) both love being outside more than anything. Living in a busy city like Asheville makes it too dangerous to let them roam free on their own. So we introduced them to a harness and the local park.

Poe took to it naturally;  she even now pulls her harness from the basket when she wants to go out. She was 4 years old when we introduced the idea of a...
