Before you add a new pet to your life, I would like to ask you to consider adopting a shelter or rescued animal. I have. Numerous times. And I have never regretted it. Ever. You won’t either. This video is about my recent experience with rescuing two dogs that were going to go on the “euthanize” list. In facilities like animal control, there are so many animals, cats and dogs, coming in. Daily. They just don’t have the capacity to keep them all. Also, animal control facilities many times are not set up as adoption centers. In other words, to make space, someone’s time comes. Someone has to go. And on a weekly basis, it’s not just someone. It’s many. I hadn’t walked thru an animal control facility before. I was actually there to pick up a dog who was being SAVED and was heading to an out-of-state rescue group. I decided to walk thru. The images of animal after animal will never leave me. An animal control facility is different than a shelter, or adoption facility. Animal control is a holding facility. The animals don’t get a nice place to sleep, or toys to play with. They are there until their owner comes to look for them, a rescue group comes to “tag” them for rescue or their time is “up”. It was mind-blowing to me to see how many dogs in the facility had microchips. The microchip number was listed on the paperwork. When I asked how come these dogs are still here? I received an answer that I would never have imagined. The owners don’t want to pay the “fee” to have their …

I have 2 cats and three dogs. One night, I ran out of cat food (the dry type) and my cats were hungry. So since I had dog food only and the shops were closed, I gave them dog kibbles. They’re more or less of the same shape and size and are made of the same ingredients – chicken. My cats took a nibble and refused the rest of the bowl, preferring to go hungry than eat dog food. The next day, i got them a fresh pack of made-for-cats kibbles and they immediately dived in and ate up. How come my cats knew what I gave them wasn’t cat food?
I also know of dogs that won’t eat cat food for the long run (not mine though, cos they’re pigs and will eat anything).
It would be good if a pet food manufacturer can answer this question. Is there some special ingredient you put in cat and dog food that makes cats and dogs know which kibbles is who’s? Also, nowadays, dogs are eating fish too – like salmon. You can’t say it’s the ingredient. How come they know the difference?
