Beat The Monday Blues: Adoption Day – Life with a Cat

This entire month of Beat The Monday Blues is dedicated to all things about adoption! Why? Because we will be holding an adoption drive (including speed-dating for dogs) with our animal welfare group (AWG) partners to bring you The Pawfect Match at Pet Expo 2016!

We always plug adoption from the animal's point-of-view. Ever wonder what are these animals thinking? It could be more humourous than we think! Heh.

Kitties are always cute but the adult cats are usually more laid-back (old is wise). Whichever type you are looking for, we are sure you can find your Pawfect Match at Pet Expo!

Pet Care Tips: What to do when you bring a new rabbit home

This month's Pet Care Tips goes big and all out on pet adoption because that's what we will be doing at the upcoming Pet Expo 2016!

Rabbits make great pets but they have very different needs from cats and dogs. Remember to get your supplies before bringing your bunny home. If you are planning to introduce your new bunny to the one at home, please read up before you do so. Rabbits are extremely territorial and may fight each other to death.

Pet Care Tips: Bringing a new cat home

This month's Pet Care Tips goes big and all out on pet adoption because that's what we will be doing at the upcoming Pet Expo 2016!

Most cats tend to get really nervous in an unfamiliar place. It's important to confine them to a room within the house first before opening up more of your home. This is really for the benefit of the cat.

Pet Care Tips: Introducing a new dog to your home

This month's Pet Care Tips goes big and all out on pet adoption because that's what we will be doing at the upcoming Pet Expo 2016!

If there's one thing we can say to you - always get your house ready before bringing an animal home. You wouldn't move into an empty house then start on renovation, right? Same thing here.

If you have another dog at home, you need to make sure your dog is comfortable having another canine friend at home. If necessary, engage a dog trainer to facilitate the familiarisation between the dogs. The trainer can also train the new dog at the same time.
