New Book Helps Worried Owners Of A Pregnant CatWritten by Cat Pregnancy Report
ĎHelp, my cat is pregnant and I donít know what to do!í Not a day goes by without someone posting this message to an Internet forum.
Worried cat owners will know what to do if they read How To Take Care Of Your Pregnant Cat. This new publication is one of first English-language books in many years exclusively on cat pregnancy.
The author, journalist and long-time cat lover Marc de Jong, is owner of www.cat-pregnancy-report.com. This web site started in August 2004 and quickly established itself as a very popular site.
"Before I started my site, it was quite difficult to find a comprehensive guide on Net about pregnancy in cats", says de Jong. "Many cat sites and forums tell owners only to spay their cat and almost flame people to death if they say their cat got pregnant. Of course they are right when they say thereís an overpopulation of cats. However, itís also a fact that millions of cats do get pregnant unplanned. If you donít tell their owners what to do and what to expect, you can endanger life of these cats."
Marc de Jong received dozens of e-mails from worried cat owners since he started his site. "Questions were often so detailed that I had to do a lot of research to answer them. The information I gathered was so valuable that I wanted to share it with all cat lovers."
Pet Services Are A Multi-Billion-Dollar IndustryWritten by Thaddeus Collins
There are many of us who consider our pets as part of family, and this is evidenced by a recent statistic that states 65% of all U.S. homes own at least one pet. Along with this increase in pet ownership comes need for services tailored for our petís comfort. And, because of this trend, pet services have grown into a multi-billion-dollar industry that encompasses a wide range of services from pet supplies to recovery services aimed at returning our lost pets.
The largest industry leader is still pet supply, and companies like PetCo and PetSmart are leading forces, providing everything from pet foods to grooming. Companies like these have evolved because their services are based on growth of pet population, and our need to make our pets feel like a family member. This focus has driven industry from a single section in discount and grocery stores into a wide range of businesses that are tailored at pampering our pets.
One of services that have grown out of this industry are pet sitting services that will, as title implies sit for your pet like a baby sitter sits for you children. These services can range from kennels with all amenities that will pamper your pet while your on extended absences, to small home services that sit for your pets while your at work. The cost for services can range from a few dollars per hour for basic sitting services to a few thousand dollars for more posh kennel services that cater to your petsí every need. Then there are specialty service that have become popular by their use in movies and television commercials, and most recognized of these is pet walking services. Pet walking services became popular in movies of cosmopolitan life in inner city, and this service has grown ever since. Another popular service, but not as glamorous is poopey scooper service, that effectively keeps our streets clean. And, with recent laws that have been enacted regarding this issue, this service is becoming ever popular.
