How to have a Cool Cat this Summer
At last, summer is here: a time for fun and relaxation! Although this is good for us humans, it can be a difficult season for your pets. Heatwaves and fireworks are just two of the things that can take a toll on your pet's physical and emotional well-being. But you can take steps to keep your pet cool and comfortable this summer so that both of you can safely enjoy the season.

Call the Animal Behaviorist

Sometimes a cat's behavior changes dramatically and no amount of trying can reverse it. You may be at your wits’ end and even wondering whether you can keep the cat. That's when you know you need help. This was the case for Sheilagh when her cat Naya suddenly started acting aggressively toward her dog.

Hospice care - for a cat?
Part of PAWS’ mission is to protect the rights and well-being of all domestic and wild animals in Wakefield and surrounding communities. Sometimes, we care for animals that have complex health issues, which makes it challenging to find new homes for them. But an animal’s health or adoptability do not stop PAWS from trying to provide the best life possible for each and every feline that comes into our care. In such cases, PAWS places the animal in one of its foster care homes, where it will live out its days in a loving, caring environment. We call it hospice care for cats.

Maisie is one such cat that came to us in March 2020 at the beginning of the COVID-19 shutdown.
