Daisy reminds everyone to “Check the Chip”

I have my lab coat on today because we need to talk about something very important. May is National Chip Your Pet Month! No, I am not talking about potato chips (even though it might be a good idea to check to make sure you have plenty of potato chips in the house at all times). I’m talking about MICROCHIPS.

Harley Gets FURminated!

Harley Gets FURminated!

Hi everybuddy! Did you know that Friday is National Hairball Awareness Day? I am a Devon Rex cat with curly fur, and my fur is pretty thin, so I do not shed very much at all.
