Mews and Nips: Downward Facing Cat, dental health, and more
Our first item on today’s edition of Mews and Nips is our very own Allegra! She was featured on Feline Yogi as their cat of the week, where she got a chance to spread word about her mission to rename one of the most widely recognized yoga poses in the world, referred to as Downward Facing Dog. Allegra feels pretty strongly that this asana was most definitely inspired by a feline and it’s time cats get proper credit for it! Read the full feature on Feline Yogini.
February is dental health month, and our friends over at A Tonk’s Tail…err, Tale ran an outstanding feature titled Straight Talk: Anesthesia and Your Pet and the questions YOU need to ask. Most cat guardians are anxious about anesthesia, but proper dental cleaning is simply not possible without it in pets. Lisa Richman interviewed her own veterinarian, and you’re going to want to read this piece before your pet undergoes anesthesia.
If you missed any of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: On Monday, I shared what I learned about caring for cats with cancer during a discussion with a veterinary oncologist, on Tuesday, we reviewed a new flavor enhancer for finicky felines, on Wednesday, we explored why cats are so fascinated with sinks, and on Friday, mystery cat author Clea Simon provided an exclusive report from the Copy Cat Festival in Sommerville, MA. And don’t forget to enter our giveaway for an innovative pet bowl!
The cat in today’s video cracked me up with his staying power in trying to get the elusive refrigerator door to open.
Have a great weekend!
