Your Cat Likes You! And What’s New for June

Is there anything sweeter than an affectionate cat?

The cat reputation for being shy, independent and treating humans as can opening devices (and occasionally scratching posts) is well deserved. Not so fast, say researchers at Oregon State University’s Human-Animal Interaction (HAI) lab.  Your cat really does like you… even more than food or toys.

The study was conducted with 19 shelter cats and 19 cats that lived with their humans. The cats were isolated and kept from people, food and toys for 2 and 1/2 hours and then given one of the three things. The researchers watched the cats for the length of engagement of the new stimuli; then they allowed the cats to have access to all three (humans, food, and toys) at the same time. Over half of the cats, regardless of whether they were from the shelter or lived with a human, went to the person and engaged with him/her over food and toys – and spent the most time with the human (over 65%).  Something to keep in mind next time your cat bats your face at 5 AM on a Saturday demanding breakfast.  He really does love you… you are not just a can opener.

On a completely unrelated topic, here we are in JUNE!!! Spring is giving its last gasp before giving way to summer’s longer, warmer days.  The school year is coming to an end (yay!) and vacations are about to begin (yay!). But before everyone scatters, here is the new stuff for June!

peanut butter and banana biscottiThe Flavor of the Month is Peanut Butter and Banana Just-a-Bite Biscotti. Think creamy peanut butter, layered with bananas and then drizzled with honey. Yep, just like that but all mixed up into a delicious treat for your pups. They will LOVE it. How could they not? This is the epitome of comfort yumminess. Of course, these are made with peanut butter (just peanuts and salt) and bananas (not banana and natural flavoring, whatever the heck that is!??), a small amount of honey, egg and a trio of flours to hold the goodness together. NO wheat. NO chemicals. NO fake anything. Just food only better because we make it with your dogs in mind.

With everything that happens in a busy family during summer – the bug bites, the sunburns, the grill accidents, the dogs’ hotspots – you’ll want to make sure you have plenty of emu oil on hand. We’ve got you covered! This month the Savings Spotlight Item is our 16-ounce bottle of pure, organic emu oil! At 10%, it’s a great deal. This is the size I have in my kitchen. Every morning I put a little bit in the dog’s breakfasts to help with their joint pain (emu oil is a fabulous anti-inflammatory).  It makes a noticeable difference in how comfortable they are – especially Lilly with her wonky shoulder and hip. Definitely take advantage of this deal and make sure your summer plans stay fun and healthy!

Have a great day and, if you have a cat, go allow him to be affectionate towards you. Then you may go open a can.
