Every year, millions of dogs and cats end up escaping from their loving homes, and are never able to be reunited with their owners. While some end up being taken in by a good Samaritan and raised in a new family, others meet a more unfortunate fate, being euthanized in overpopulated shelters, or being forced to survive harsh conditions out in the wild.
Now that you’ve made it through the winter you’ll be anxious to get outside with your pet and start your springtime activities. Everything from gardening to cleaning is on the list as you prepare to get out and about. Your pet will appreciate the nice weather too as he gets to spend more time outdoors. While you may enjoy welcoming this great weather don’t forget about the hazards to your pet that may come with it. A little foresight and prevention can go a long way in having an enjoyable spring.
Spring has Sprung
Cats seem to be natural escape artists. They somehow manage to squeeze their flexible bodies into, and out of, all sorts of confining spaces, including gates, fences and other obstacles. Sometimes they even manage to tree themselves! Unlike their canine comrades, cats are also slightly more independent, and tend to remain outside long after Fido has found his way home.
