Have your wondered why your cat must sit on the exact piece of paper that you’re trying to read on the desk or why it particularly jumps up on your friends that don’t like cats? I’ll explain behaviors that may baffle you, but make total sense to your feline.

Then, what would happen to your pets, if you had to be hospitalized for a long period of time, or were delayed for days at an airport, or if the worst happened and you lost your life. It’s such a disturbing topic that no one really wants to think or talk about it. However just like you’d arrange for someone to be a guardian to your human dependents if something happens to you, making a plan for who will take and care for your pets,  is just as important and will provide you great relief.  Listen as attorney, Robert Kass, and co-author of the book, “Who Will Care When You’re Not There? By Robert E. Kass and Elizabeth A. Carrie, explains clearly why and how to make an estate plan for your pets.

Plus, in warm weather climates, hot asphalt can hurt your dog’s paws. Learn how to do the “7 second rule” to determine if the sidewalk is too hot for your dog to walk upon.
