Howtotellifyourcat.JPG

If you need to lighten up a bit, and are a crazy cat person, pick up a copy of this off-beat How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You by The Oatmeal which is written, drawn, and coded by Matthew Inman. The book description says it best:

If your cat is kneading you, that's not a sign of affection. Your cat is actually checking your internal organs for weakness. If your cat brings you a dead animal, this isn't a gift. It's a warning. How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You is a hilarious, brilliant offering of cat comics, facts, and instructional guides from the creative wonderland at TheOatmeal.com

Sense of humor required.

Amazon Hot New Pet Book -- The Last Walk: Reflections on Our Pets at the End of Their Lives

mollyjessbeach.jpg

We all know the benefits of sharing our lives with pets; sadly we often outlive them.

One of our Golden Retriever twin girls suffers from severe and debilitating arthritis. For over a year we have tinkered with palliative (pain meds) and curative treatments.

And we are not alone--we are one family among thousands living with older pets in pain, obsessively assessing the quality of their lives, while learning that the very pain medications that relieve their suffering can and do gravely impact the quantity of their lives.

If this strikes a chord in your life, you may want to check out this Behavioral Signs of Persistent Pain chart. Then get out the tissues and read the insightful Deciding When a Pet Has Suffered Enough | New York Times Sunday Review by bioethicist Jessica Pierce. She is also the author of The Last Walk: Reflections on Our Pets at the End of Their Lives which "asks--and answers--the toughest questions pet owners face".
