This week the NCSPCA would like to help those of you who may be, at times, frustrated feline owners. Christine Church's book, "Your Outta Control Cat," published by T.F.H. Publications, Inc., in 2003, is both entertaining and educational. Christine tackles common cat problems such as territorial aggression when your furry friends just can't get along, "accidents" outside the litter box, biting behaviors, and clawing the furniture with solutions that may just bring sanity back to your home - or at least, make it flow a little more smoothly for all family members combined. For example, did you know that squabbling cats can benefit from a "time out" just like arguing kids? This book also contains handy grooming tips and a list of resources for all things cat-related. You can check out the book at www.tfhpublications.com.
Our featured pet this week is Buck, an adorable Beagle/mix who lost his way from home and arrived at our shelter, hoping to find the perfect family. This perky pup loves attention of any kind and enjoys getting outside in the brisk Spring air. Buck is a real people-hound who can't seem to get enough playtime, petting, and hikes. If you are looking for a small dog with a big personality, Buck may be the friend you are looking for. Come visit him at 23 Lakeshore Road in Westport ... and wear your sneakers - it's the perfect day to go for a walk!
