Beat the Monday Blues – Where's my Kitty?

Clyde the dog is at it again! This time, he wants a small little kitten. Look at how his guardian teases him about getting the kitten... and check out how impatient he can get!

Everyone needs a companion or a friend to talk to. As owners, most of our time are usually taken up by school or work, leaving little time for our pets.

A dog, for an example, needs a constant pal to spend time with. If you have room for another pet, it might be a good idea to get another one to keep your dog company. However, you have to make sure that they get along nicely. You can speak to an animal behaviourist and they would be more than happy to help.
