Pet Safety Howliday Tips

Posted by Pussy & Pooch on December 15, 2015 at 1:21pm 0 Comments

The Holidays are an exciting time for animals and humans alike and with all the rushing around; the last thing we want is to have to rush a beloved pet to the Emergency Room! Here are a few helpful tips provided by the ASPCA to help you and your pet celebrate the holiday safely.


Be Careful with Seasonal Plants and Decorations

  • Oh, Christmas Tree: Securely anchor your Christmas tree so it doesn't tip and fall, causing possible injury to your pet. This will also prevent the tree water—which may contain fertilizers that can cause stomach upset—from spilling. Stagnant tree water is a breeding ground for bacteria, and your pet could end up with nausea or diarrhea should he imbibe.
  • Avoid Mistletoe & Holly: Holly, when ingested, can cause pets to suffer nausea,…

Dressing the Part - Humanization of Pets

Posted by Pussy & Pooch on October 7, 2015 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

Halloween is fast approaching, so whether you show your spirit and opt for a little fun during the festivities– one thing is certain, the Halloween holiday kicks off a season of dressing your pets. The holiday brings out the inner kid in most of us and so it’s no surprise that the holiday family fun has been extended to our furry companions.  It’s estimated by the National Retail Federation that more 20 million people will dress their pets for Halloween.

Whether you do or don’t dress your pets regularly is most often a matter of personal preference and/or practicality, however the explosion in the ‘humanization of pets’ has made this trend into the new norm and it’s gone global. The United States is the leader of the pack in setting pet trends, which is no surprise…


Walk The Dog!

Posted by Pussy & Pooch on September 1, 2015 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

Walking your dog has greater benefits than the obvious need for elimination. What is just as important is their daily exercise, the opportunity for socialization, ongoing training opportunity, and the mental stimulation that comes from exploration that is their basic instinct.


As city dwellers we may be at a disadvantage in providing our canine friends with backyard space and lush neighborhood walks, this is true; however once you can master a varied routine within our urban environment, it is loaded with activities to challenge your dogs' sight, smell, and sound and their ultimately…


Animal Haven – Lifestyles of the Urban and Furry

Posted by Pussy & Pooch on August 1, 2015 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

In 1996, if you had told us that Pussy & Pooch would be at the epicenter of the DTLA pet community, we wouldn’t have imagined it. Pausing to reflect on the decade milestone of LA Lofts in the last issue, we have been reminiscent of one of our own today, as I celebrate transplanting from Cleveland to Los Angeles 19 years ago. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM and former staff member of the design college, I first became a DTLA resident in 2001. Having made the long journey from Ohio to California with my two cats in tow, for years I had to do my pet related errands all over town, schlepping heavy cat litter, and searching for premium foods & grooming services. My then soon-to-be husband and business partner had a similar situation, albeit suburban experience,…


Raising a Green Dog (and Kitty) in the City

Posted by Pussy & Pooch on April 1, 2015 at 8:00am 0 Comments

Our pets live in an ever increasingly contaminated environment due to harmful toxins, both inside and out. Consider the effects of poor quality pet food, vaccines, pesticides, medications, household chemicals, and environmental pollutants… and be aware that our dogs and cats exposure to these things are happening daily and often with a much higher sensitivity. Reducing our carbon footprint – and their pawprint—on our environment is not just about what lifestyle choices can have the best impact on our PLANET, but also what choices can we make for ourselves and our pets that can lessen the effect of the environment on US. We can keep our animal companions safe and living a longer, happier, healthier life by making a commitment to choosing to live GREEN.

The Dirty Truth – Pet FEED or Pet FOOD?

Posted by Pussy & Pooch on March 1, 2015 at 8:00am 0 Comments

Adorable pet pictures and funny pet videos aren’t the only things that should be distracting you online these days. A pet care topic has been gaining momentum, and may be reaching the tipping point to change the way in which we feed our pets.


Pet food buyers beware -- the news world is abuzz over a nationwide class action lawsuit filed by a pet owner in California against pet food giant Nestle Purina Petcare Company alleging that the well-known dog food brand Beneful contains toxic substances that are capable of killing dogs.


The basis of the lawsuit is the inclusion of propylene glycol (included in antifreeze, and used a moisturizing additive in dog food), and grains (the principal ingredient in Beneful) with…


Friends & Animals - True Love is more than Fur Deep

Posted by Pussy & Pooch on February 3, 2015 at 6:30pm 0 Comments

Our human instinct to love, be loved, to nurture, to belong to group, to bond with another being-- all needs quite often fulfilled by our animal companions who offer their loyalty, protection, and emotional support. For some of us, our longest relationships (excluding family of course!) are those we have had with our pets. They have endured all of life's ups and downs with us, faithfully by our side. In my own personal experience, my longest current relationship is at nineteen years and counting-- Not many other people can say they know me as well as my cat!

 With animal companions there are no break ups, no fighting, disappointments, heartache- it's a true friend until the very end. For some, pets are best friends forever, a sidekick, a…
