Spring has officially arrived and has been known for the time of rebirth and new beginnings. Tree’s begin new growth and flowers begin to bloom. Spring time in California is one of the best times to enjoy the great outdoors. Many people go hiking, walking or running, and spending time with their animals.
March is also a time to recognize the great pet holidays we celebrate such as, Poison Prevention Month (also National Poison Prevention Week March 16-24), Adopt a Rescued Guinea Pig Month and Professional Pet Sitters Week (March 2-8, 2014).
In honor of Pet Sitters Week, I would like to personally acknowledge the following pet sitting services for their support in this magazine and in our community: PetzRFamily2, California Pampered Pooches and House Calls Pet Sitting. According to many studies, the benefits of using in-home pet care provides the following: Pets are happier and experience less stress at home. Diet and exercise routines are uninterrupted. Travel trauma for both owner and pet is eliminated. Pet’s exposure to illness is minimized. Untrained or unwilling friends/family/neighbors need not be called. Your In-home professional pet care provides added peace of mind.
Let’s not forget the many important pet holidays in April: Heartworm Awareness Month, National Pet First Aid Awareness Month, Prevent Lyme Disease in Dogs Month, Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month (ASCPA), and National Pet Month (through May 5). Please view our calendar of events to recognize other very important dates in March and April.
Spring is also known for kitten season. Kitten season is weather dependent, and here in the Bay Area it usually happens twice a year. We tend to start seeing more kittens around late March, and the season reaches its boiling point around Mother’s Day. Please read more by our Cat Columnist, Lisa Hart, aka Dear CatWoman707.
