The primary purpose of this website is to promote the general welfare of pets in a loving home environment.

Second purpose is to help Pet Parents understand their four-legged family members; what makes them do silly things and how they communicate their wants and needs to us.

Humans and animals have shared this planet Earth for hundreds of thousands of years. Man learned that he could domesticate animals early on to provide transportation, food and clothing. Horses took us from one place to another; cows, pigs, goats, sheep, chickens became important food sources and  provided materials for clothing.

Animals that could assist us in maintaining our daily life were allowed to live in close proximity. Cats would gratefully clear out the barns and chicken coops of rodents in exchange for a warm place to sleep.

Dogs were valuable as sheep herders and in cattle roundups. They made excellent alarm systems with their loud barking.

Eventually, cats and dogs became pets, sharing our homes, our beds and daily lives . Pet care has become big business, and we, as doting pet parents, still have a lot to learn about our beloved animal friends.

Would love to hear from my readers anytime about anything having to do with your pets–I will always answer.
