Your pets feel the win­ter chill as much as we do

AN­GEL is a two year old rag­doll – she is a sweet cat that is truly de­serv­ing of a won­der­ful home.

An­gel is gen­tle and would be fine with an equally gen­tle cat. She is look­ing for a quiet home with an owner who has pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence as a su­per cat owner.

Please call 0400251396 or 0411144689 or go on­line at 4pawsan­i­mal­res­cue.org.au to ap­ply.

Win­ter is upon us and we must pre­pare our pets for the cold weather es­pe­cially so if your dog lives out­side.

Make sure your ken­nel is in a draught-free and dry place best un­der a patio or in your garage if you have ac­cess to an en­closed yard from the garage. Make sure the open­ing to the dog­house is not fac­ing the wind.

Pro­vid­ing ad­e­quate shel­ter is vi­tal.

An insulated ken­nel will pro­vide warmth and keep your dog dry dur­ing and harsh chill­ing winds. Dog coats can also be a good way to pro­tect your dog. For in­side dogs that sleep in a bed on the floor place a slab of foam un­der the bed to in­su­late it from the tiles.

Or if your dogs are like my dogs just ask them po­litely to give you more than two inches on the edge of the bed.

Talk to your Vet about sup­ple­ments if you have an arthritic dog.
