Salon 615: My Music City Cats

 

Sandee Gertz - Author/WriterNashville, TN – A homeless kitten at the riverfront I call Tiny Titan scratched me today.  It didn’t break the surface of my skin. It was not quite paper-cut serious and barely visible—done only because I had tried to pet his head while he was eating from the Friskies can I’d brought him.  But the “wound” cut deeper into my psyche than could be easily understood.

For the past nine months, I’d been feeding the feral cats that live along the Cumberland River in Downtown, Nashville.  (For those of you who don’t live in Nashville, the downtown riverfront boasts the historic Fort Nashborough, park and concert open space areas, and the Cumberland River Greenway—a nearly 8-mile walking/jogging path—with the Titans Football Stadium in view on the other side.)

George the Cat.

Think a Dog’s Mouth is Cleaner Than a Human’s? Think Again.

 

The GREENIES® Brand Team Helps to Demystify Common Misunderstandings about Pet Oral Health

GreeniesNashville, TN – A dog’s mouth is cleaner than a human’s. A pet’s saliva can miraculously cure human cuts and scrapes. These are common beliefs held by pet owners, according to a new study commissioned by The GREENIES® Brand, makers of the #1 vet‐recommended pet specialty dental chews and treats(1). But veterinary dental experts urge pet owners not to believe so quickly, as many of these beliefs aren’t necessarily true.

Among the most commonly held beliefs, the study found that almost half of pet owners believe that dogs’ mouths are cleaner than a human’s and that any type of chewing is good for a dog’s teeth. It also found that about 40 percent think it is normal for their pets to have stinky breath. About one‐third of pet owners believe that a dog’s saliva can help cure human wounds(2). «Read the rest of this article»
