The new year is approaching fast with the 2019 New Year’s celebrations. Many people think about their New Year’s Resolutions. Have you thought about your pet New Year’s Resolutions?
For 2018 I added Hobbes, my Wheaten, to the mix of resolutions or aspiring new intentions. Do you need ideas for pet New Year’s resolutions?
Here are some quick ideas for you and your pet New Year resolutions:
- Sit quietly with your pet (cat, dog, bird, ferret, horse, etc.) and just spend time with him. No phone, tablet, television, or other distractions. Just be together for 5 minutes.
- Check your dog and cat’s tags. Is the information up to date? Did you disconnect the landline and only have a cell phone? Is the collar in great condition? Order tags if needed.
- Initiate play with your pet. He may be surprised!
- With cold or hot weather, pets get as bored as we are in the house. Read some great ideas to bring joy into everyone’s life.
- Does your dog need cold weather gear? After trying several types of dog booties, Hobbes likes PAWZ Dog Boots. He lifts each paw as I put on the boot. The thin, rubber boots are great for older dogs who slip on the floor.
- Do you know exactly what your pet eats? Do you recognize all the ingredients? Ask your local, knowledgeable pet food store for ideas. Do what is best for you and your pet.
- Go for a walk or add 5 minutes to your usual walk with your dog. Some cats enjoy walking with harness and leash too.
Most importantly, enjoy your pet with these pet New Year’s resolutions.

My first sea turtle and manta ray animal communications happened on vacation in Hawaii. We escaped the first blast of winter 2017-2018!
Years ago, we spent time in Maui and missed the Road to Hana. It was on my To Do List! We spent 2-1/2 days driving over 50 miles one way around 620 hair pin curves, 46 single bridges, and saw lots of waterfalls. It was worth the wait!
While exploring, I experienced a sea turtle and manta ray animal communications! It wasn’t planned. It just happened.
Do you wonder “is my pet telling me something?” or “why is he doing that?”
Recently Hobbes started limping on his front leg. I wasn’t sure what was going on. I checked his foot and didn’t find anything. I immediately made an appointment with his vet.
The next day at his appointment, the vet looked at his “sore foot.” He asked, “Do you clip his nails?” Guilt crept in — what did I do?
To me, September is the month of change. Schedules change, weather changes, routines change, amount of daylight changes. Do changes affect pets? I say yes!
What changes affect our pets? It can be a small — you walk out of the house to get the mail – or big – you leave for a long vacation. If the change is big to us, imagine what it’s like for your dog, cat, horse, etc.
Summer is in full swing. We love being outside and so do our pets. Unfortunately the number of lost pets seems to be increasing daily. Six easy tips to help you bring your lost dog cat home faster.
In the past week, I heard of 3 lost cats and 2 dogs in the neighborhood. I also heard of a lost dog that didn’t have it’s micro chip information updated. He went home with the person who found him!
During summer the doors are open more. It only takes a push with a nose to open some screen doors. Or someone forgets and leaves the gate open. And sometimes the cat or dog gets curious and gets lost.
As pet parents we must do all we can to help them get home!
When I see a pet without a collar and tags, I get sick to my stomach. My first thought is “How will I get it home?”

Yes, words are important to pets and people! How often have you told your dog “stop barking” and she keeps barking? Or you told your cat “stop peeing outside the litter box” and he keeps doing it. Ugh, the mess!
