An­i­mals on the Scene

Animal Scene - - CONTENTS -

The hottest an­i­mal events of the sum­mer... only in An­i­mal Scene!

Sum­mer was the sea­son for an­i­mal-re­lated events, and we en­joyed meet­ing you, our read­ers, and peo­ple in­volved in the lo­cal an­i­mal scene, at the events we were able to cover. We ap­pre­ci­ated your re­quests for more photos and eas­ier-to-read ar­ti­cles, your ques­tions about var­i­ous pets, and the sug­ges­tions for ar­ti­cles and reader fea­tures. You’ll see our man­ag­ing editor Jeff work­ing with our next cover an­i­mal in the photos above. He’s re­spon­si­ble for our gor­geous cov­ers, and his keen eye is the rea­son why you en­joy our photos. You’ll also no­tice sub­tle yet more at­trac­tive and more read­able changes in our lay­out style. That’s the work of Sh­eryl, our graph­ics artist. And of course there are our con­trib­u­tors, with­out whom much of the ar­ti­cles here would not be com­plete. Our lit­tle team hap­pily throws our­selves into our work be­cause there is so much to see and learn―and not just from the an­i­mals, but also from you, our read­ers. Now, in an era where in­ter­est­ing photos quickly go vi­ral―and just as quickly dis­ap­pear from the so­cial land­scape―we’re open­ing our pages for a more per­ma­nent record of your amaz­ing pet photos. What are we look­ing for? No or­di­nary self­ies, please! We want photos taken by YOU that tell sto­ries about the an­i­mals in them: have you cap­tured your pet do­ing some­thing funny, touch­ing, or amaz­ing? How about photos you took that il­lus­trate the bond be­tween an­i­mals and hu­mans? We’d also love to see sit­u­a­tions you’ve snapped in­volv­ing an­i­mals that make peo­ple smile or touch peo­ple’s hearts. Now turn to page 49 to learn how to make the scene with An­i­mal Scene and your one-of-a-kind photos! And what would An­i­mal Scene be with­out its fea­tures? In this is­sue, we have the adorable Keeshond (and I am happy to say I got to kiss him dur­ing his cover shoot!), the swimming scorpion, the na­ture aquar­ium, how to max­i­mize at­ten­dance dur­ing a pet fair, how to care for your cat’s teeth, a fea­ture on FIP―A deadly fe­line dis­ease against which there is no vac­cine, as of yet― and more. We hope to reach out and ed­u­cate through our con­tent, and we hope you can con­tinue reach­ing back to us to let us know what you like and what we can im­prove. We also hope to in­tro­duce a few new colum­nists and writ­ers to you soon! Do keep send­ing in com­ments, re­quests, and sug­ges­tions. Please let us know about what you’d like to read about in An­i­mal Scene by drop­ping us a line at mban­i­ We’re a work in progress, af­ter all, and we’d like you to be very much a part of it.
