My Pet World: Distract and treat for timid dogs afraid of cars
Basically, your mom created a low-profile litter box for her arthritic cat. The rug captures a lot of the litter, which probably requires only a broom for quick clean-up and daily maintenance. Thanks for sharing. Hopefully, it helps another arthritic cat.
Each week, I read your column and rarely find postings about cats. Your column is mainly about dogs. I love dogs, but I have a cat and would like you to post more information about cat behavior, medical information, problems, etc. -- Gloria, New York
Over the last few months, I have answered dog and cat questions fairly evenly. But thanks for keeping me on my toes and making sure I don't play favorites. You don't have to wait for someone else to ask a question about cats though. This is a question-based column, so let me know your questions or concerns about cats or any other pets, and I will be happy to respond.
