Can my cat give me COVID-19?

Is your cat loyal to you?

Kitty asks for the door. Being the good, obedient master you are, you let him out so he can stretch his legs a bit. What harm can it do? Daredevil, murderer or beggar? The truth is, you know little about what your cat is up to outside the comfort of the house. Of its nine […]

Burying the evidence...

Scratch, scratch, scratch… that sound that precedes Kitty’s triumphant exit. No one will know that he visited the litter box since the evidence has been buried! At least, until his faithful human being plays archaeologists to root out the carefully buried waste.
