June is Adopt a Cat Month!


Help celebrate Adopt a Shelter Cat Month by visiting the cats and kittens at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center.  Millions of cats and kittens nationwide are waiting for their forever homes, including many currently available at the Center. 

Here are some ways that you can help cats during this special month:

1.   Adopt -  The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center has reduced adoption fees for all kittens until June 7 and for most adult cats through the entire month of June. Come to the shelter to meet the amazing cats and kittens waiting for their new families.

2.   Donate - The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center has a wish list of needed items.  Donating any of these items is a great help to the animals awaiting their new homes.

3.   Foster -  The Center has an extensive foster program for kittens, and new foster parents are always needed

4.  Spay and Neuter - SpayUSA reported that an unspayed female cat, her mate, and all of their offspring could produce as many as 370,000 cats in as little as 7 years! Contact the Center for a referral to a local low cost spay/neuter clinic.

Buster is a Happier Dog!



After my recent "conversation" with Buster, his mom had this to say.....

Buster says "Thank you Frances for making sure my mom got me a new bench to securely jump into bed

It is interesting our bond seems like it has grown even stronger since you were here. And now Buster does not seem so stressed when I leave him. He is not happy, but he is ok with it. Thank you for all that you do!

We are very grateful for you!

If your pet is exhibiting behavior that you do not understand, please contact me and arrange an animal communication conversation!

Conversation with Bear

Bear


Frances: Hi Bear – how are you?  
huh? Who are you?  
Frances: I’m a friend of your mom.  She asked if I could talk with you.
oh ok.  
Frances: Honey I know you are a puppy and have so much energy.  Your mom is concerned when you don’t listen to her.  She and the family love you very much.  
Why did they send me away?
Frances: They sent you to a special puppy school to learn your manners.  To learn how to behave with your family.  To learn to go pee and poo outside.  
So are they going to send me away again?
Frances: No honey – they love you and want you to stay in their family.  It is important that you behave by not jumping or biting anyone.  The people who come to your house are friendly and not going to harm anyone.  Does that make sense to you?  
I guess so but I thought I was supposed to protect them.  
Frances: You are honey, but only when there is a danger – not everyone is bad, everyone is good until they show you otherwise.  To let mom know someone is there you can do one bark.  If there is danger then you can bark more – no jumping or biting on anyone.  
What is my job then?  
Frances: Your job is to be a loving companion for the boys and Quinn.  
But Quinn doesn’t play back.
Frances: I know honey that’s because he is older – but be kind to him ok?)  
ok so I can play with the boys?
Frances: Yes honey – but outside – not in the house – you need to be a gentle dog in the house.  No running or horseplay in the house.  Please calm down when you are inside.  
What does “calm” mean?
Frances: Taking things slower – walk slower, move slower, behave in a slower way.  Take your time eating, there will always be enough food for you.  Share your toys with Quinn – even if he doesn’t act like he wants to play – show him you will share with him. 
There are lots of toys and the food is really good.  Is it ok if I sit next to mom when she is working or talking on the phone?
Frances: If you are still and quiet I’m sure mom won’t mind. She loves you very much and want you to be a loving part of the family.  Please understand they chose you because you are special – they love you very much.
Wow – so I’m not going to have to live anyplace else? This is my home for real?  
Frances: Yes honey – this is your home and your family – and love them as much as they love you.  Do you think you can do that?
Yes – oh thank you for talking with me.  
Frances: You’re very welcome Bear – bye bye.
Bye

Alert! Vets Warn About Treats Poisoning Pets


"Petco, one of the country's largest pet retailers, announced Monday that it has pulled all Chinese-made dog and cat treats from its shelves, citing concerns that the foreign made pet foods could be linked to a series of yet unexplained sicknesses and deaths among pet dogs in the United States. The move, the first by a national pet store, comes despite the FDA's inability to tie the illnesses specifically to Chinese-made pet foods. And there's reason to believe it might signify the beginning of a swift industry-wide precautionary movement away from such imports."   Source:  The Washington Post January 6, 2015

And yet,  recently, a coworker's young dog experienced kidney failure and found out that these treats are still in the stores for sale! Even though they may say "made in USA" the ingredients may still be sourced in China and merely assembled here.  

Read the articles -  stay informed - keep your pet safe!

ALERT!  Vets Warn About Treats from China Poisoning Dogs
