Do you consider your pet to be a "person"? The status of our dogs and cats is indeed rising in our society. It goes without saying they are family members and even surrogate children to some. Soon they may even have their very own legal rights, a stark contrast to their ancestors throughout history.
How did this happen? Award-winning journalist David Grimm explores the changing social attitudes in his new book Citizen Canine: Our Evolving Relationship with Cats and Dogs. Formerly wild animals in the middle ages, our dogs and cats are now "quasi citizens". It's a new age for pets!
At Citizen Canine: Our Evolving Relationship with Cats and Dogs.

In warmer weather we like to feed our pets outdoors here at Super Cool Pets HQ. This encourages the animals to stay outside for awhile and enjoy some fresh air.
If you do this too, you know that within nanoseconds of the end of the meal, the nearest ant colony invades the bowl to scarf up the leftovers.
This Ant Free Pet Bowl is designed to trick or confuse the ants with a water moat. It does not use water, but instead has a lip that prevents ants from climbing up. Ant Free Pet Bowl is suitable for cats and dogs.
