Have you ever thought about walking your indoor cat on a lead so they can enjoy their outside environment? Pearl is a deaf cat that has been trained to head out on adventures on a harness. Megan Jones, from Hamilton, talks to us about walking her cat. Where did you get Pearl from and did you know Pearl was deaf when you got her? I got Pearl 12 years ago from Animates. The SPCA were selling their kittens through Animates to help raise money. They told me she was deaf, but a simple clapping of hands behind her head also showed she didn't react. How and why did you train her to walk on a lead? W ..read more

No one likes taking tablets or medication and it can be hard to persuade your pets to eat the tablets, especially as they often don’t taste or look particularly appealing to pets. For dogs, the easiest way to administer medication is to hide it in food. Good foods to hide tablets in include cheese, sausages, wet food and peanut butter (Xylitol free). Make a big fuss of your fur baby with lots of pats and praises and get them really excited about eating the ‘treat’ before you give it to them. Give one or two dummy treats and then the medication wrapped in a treat to disguise the fact medicatio ..read more
