Is Your Vet AAHA Accredited?

Is Your Vet AAHA Accredited? AAHA! – Not just a fun interjection to express your excitement over having just found that long-lost cat toy under the couch.

Today I Will Lovingly Sport My Cat Scratch

Cat Scratch on Face

Today I Will Lovingly Sport My Cat Scratch A few days ago I was lying on the couch with Sampson (our resident scaredy cat) curled up on my chest. We were enjoying a relaxing afternoon with our attic fan going and windows open. I moved my arm.

Watch Out for Toxic Plants!

Watch out for Toxic Plants

Watch Out for Toxic Plants! If your cat is anything like our Delilah, then yours LOVES to eat flowers. Every now and then Bobby and I will get a bouquet of flowers from the grocery story to spruce up the kitchen or living room, and every time we do, Delilah enjoys snacking on them. Kroger is our usual place of purchase, and they seem to be very fond of using lilies (mostly Peruvian Lilies and Asiatic Lilies) in their bouquets....
