Why Does Your Cat Eat Plastic?

(CATS/PET CARE) Teething young kittens can chew all sorts of objects. However, adult cats that lick, chew, or swallow inedible objects may suffer from pica, which is defined as the act of eating non-food items. In less serious cases, cats may chew or suck on objects, but not actually swallow them. However, any object may be a potential target for an internal blockage—especially plastic.

“This Isn’t Hunting—It’s Slaughter”: GOP Shoots Down Wildlife Protections For Alaskan Wolves & Bears

(ANIMAL NEWS/WILDLIFE) Both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives have passed a measure that would remove wildlife protections on bears and gray wolves in Alaska, and (sadly) President Donald Trump's signature is the only thing standing in the way of the measure becoming law. If signed, the bill--backed by the National Rifle Association and Safari Club International--would permit extreme killing methods of certain predatory animals on national wildlife refuges in Alaska, including gunning down animals from planes and slaughtering baby cubs and pups in their dens. Not only are these hunting practices cruel and unsportsmanlike, but repealing these wildlife protections also negates the critical role that these predators play in healthy ecosystems. We cannot let this tragic news go unnoticed. Please contact your state representatives and congressmen and demand that they honor the limits in the conduct of wildlife policy in the U.S. Read on for more on how groups are responding to the measure to repeal the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service rule. -- Global Animal

(PETS) Breaking up is never easy, and in these modern times, separations and divorces are becoming even more complicated with the involvement of family pets. While many divorce courts treat pets like property, this traditional approach is beginning to change as many guardians see their beloved pets more like children.
