  • Prayer Request

    12/17/2014 6:15:55 AM PST · by Secret Agent Man · 61 replies
    Just a quick prayer request for my pet Buster. He's having surgery this morning to remove a well-contained tumor in a lymph node. It should go well, but I ask for prayers for him and the medical staff working with him this morning. He's in good shape to recover and we're asking for everything to go smoothly and for a good recovery. Thanks,

  • Should dogs be citizens? It’s not as crazy as you think. (Huh?)

    What if domestic animals — pets such as dogs and cats as well livestock like cows and chickens — were granted citizenship rights? That may sound like a crazy question, but Canadian philosopher Will Kymlicka thinks it's a critically important one. Kymlicka, a professor at Queen's University, is a well-regarded figure in modern political philosophy. He's also the author, along with writer Sue Donaldson, of Zoopolis, a book making the case for animal citizenship. Their basic premise is simple: animals are already part of our society, as pets and work animals, therefore we should formally recognize them as such. That's...

    Former Spanish police officer - previously arrested for Nazi-themed protest - scaled the walls of the enclose where 3 lions mauled him, according to local media. Whether in an act of unknown protest, plain disregard for basic safety or a test of conviction in the lions' den, an alleged neo-Nazi activist sustained critical injuries from a lion attack at the Barcelona Zoo on Sunday after he jumped into the animals' enclosure, according to Spanish daily El País. According to eyewitness accounts, the 45-year-old former Spanish police officer donned full military garb when he deliberately scaled the walls of the feline...

    Pet owners worldwide, including CFP’s beloved pet Yorkie, ‘Yankee’, can attest by the millions that Fidos have already found Heaven on Earth. The pithy posts of Father John T. Zuhlsdorf (Father Z) are among my favourite on the Internet. Just as I tune in on my much-admired friend Father Paul Nicholson’s inspiring homilies, I read Fr. Z’s blog most every day. Catholic convert Jimmy Akin of Jimmy Akin blog fame is no slouch when it comes to setting the record straight either.

    In his weekly address at the Vatican late last month, Pope Francis issued a remarkable statement that’s sure to come as welcome news to anyone who’s ever lost a beloved pet. According to Francis, the promise of an afterlife applies not only to believers, but to all animals as well."The Holy Scriptures teach us that the realization of this wonderful plan covers all that is around us, and that came out of the thought and the heart of God," Pope Francis said, as quoted by Italian news site Resapubblica. The Pope then went on to say that “heaven is open to all...

    Like most moms, Mek needs a break. The mother of the four fast-growing Malayan tiger cubs at Fresno Chaffee Zoo has frayed nerves and needs some space. “You can tell Mek has had it,” says Lyn Myers, assistant curator for mammals at the zoo. “It’s like the end of summer, when kids have been home all the time, and mom wants school to come. They’re ready for them to go.” Born Jan. 5 at the zoo, the cubs are now 11 months old. They are in good health and are receiving training from zoo officials to become more independent. They...

    Unlike dogs, cats are at best semi-domesticated—and we love them for that. Dog lovers will find it baffling that cats are the world’s most popular pet. After all, they’re passive-aggressive, emotionally unavailable, and known for their chilly independence—traits that at most qualify felines for the role of “man’s best frenemy.” It turns out, though, there’s an evolutionary reason for this tense relationship. That is, cats are in many ways still wild. “Cats, unlike dogs, are really only semi-domesticated,” says Wes Warren, professor of genetics Washington University and co-author of the first complete mapping (paywall) of the house cat genome—specifically, that...

    Lifetime’s weirdly meta film, Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever—which comes complete with Aubrey Plaza appearing onscreen to announce she’s voicing the beloved Internet meme—is, essentially, the story of one young girl’s attempt at making friends and saving a mall. Yep; it sounds about as interesting as it is to watch. With Grumpy Cat narrating the young girl’s story—and popping in to drive cars and operate paintball guns—the film focuses on a mall pet store and the two musicians who decide to steal a $1 million dog. The annoying animals and even more annoying humans pull focus from Grumpy Cat’s...

The virus has a big name: panleukopenia. Shelter employees say it's highly contagious - similar to the parvovirus in dogs - and almost always deadly. That's why the city shelter is closing its doors to any more cats for the next two weeks. "Everybody who's been exposed is a potential risk, and the only way we're going to get it controlled is if...

    As any cat owner will tell you the feline of the species is the most cunning and manipulative of all household pets. However, as these amazing series of photographs show, cats are able to hide in the strangest possible places for no apparent reason. Some of the cats have hidden in a variety of boxes, baskets and even a kettle. One kitten even laid itself out inside the gutter of a house enjoying some afternoon sunshine. So if your cat happens to go missing, before photocopying dozens of notices and plastering them over the neighbourhood, maybe a quick search around...

Research has revealed that more than half of people do not know how to cope with an anxious cat and think that petting them is the answer. Leading cat charity, Cats Protection, asked pet owners what they knew about caring for their moggy but found too many were letting the love of their pets cloud their judgement.
