Day in the Life: Wellness Care Clinic

Nine a.m. arrives relatively quietly on this Wednesday. Surgery check-in goes until 8:30, and there aren’t too many people running late, so we’re actually a little quiet in the waiting area.

Saved by Cats

I grew up with dogs. Sort of. I didn’t know what to do with a dog. My family didn’t know what to do, either. We never had dogs for very long. We were a high-strung, neat freak sort of family (except for dad), so we had a lot of rules: no dog hair on things,...

Dealing with Cat Scratching Behaviors

Cats, right? Tell me about it. I’ve lived with cats for the better part of a decade now, after growing up with dogs. One of the things it took me (far) too long to come to terms with was scratching. Not them scratching me, of course (though that did happen), but my furniture. I was...
