    I met Shelly Habel, the creator of Sugarboys, at the National Capital Cat Show in September.

    Have you noticed your cat pulling food out of the bowl, throwing it next to the bowl, and then proceeding to eat it? Perhaps your cat uses her paw to fish food out of her food bowl? Does she constantly demand food even though her bowl is half full? Does she consistently finishes only part of her meal? If you notice any of these signs, your cat may be experiencing whisker stress.

    What is whisker stress?

    Whiskers are extremely sensitive, and when a food bowl is too narrow and too deep, a cat is...

This years summit focused on how technology and scientific advances are leading to a brighter future with our pets. The daylong event featured 15 expert...

    Buttercup, a Florida cat whose red blood cell count had fallen to dangerously low levels, received a transfusion of canine blood that save her life. Buttercups veterinarians didnt have ready access to feline blood, and time was of the essences. Cross-species transfusions are a risky procedure.

She visited Lola at the veterinary clinic, and it was, as she writes in Lola: Diary of a Rescue Cat, the second best decision I ever...
