Interview with the Owner of America’s First Dog Cafe, Sarah Wolfgang at The Dog Cafe - For animal lovers, the idea of going out for some coffee and a roomful of dogs is really a dream come true. Asia in particular—especially Japan—has caught on to the concept of animal cafes, offering everything from cat and dog cafes to rabbit, bird and snake cafes. The idea hasn’t been lost on the West, with more and more cat cafes opening up in the U.S. And now, according to The Dog Cafe in Los Angeles, California, it is the first dog cafe in America. Opened on April 7, the cafe offers coffee and adoptable rescue dogs in a 900-square-foot lounge environment. Dogs can roam freely while guests hang out and get to know them. Find out more about The Dog Cafe and the inspiration behind it from owner and founder Sarah Wolfgang. The Honest Kitchen: How did this idea for a dog cafe come about? What inspired it? Sarah Wolfgang: I grew up in Korea where there are a lot of dog cafes. I became really involved in the animal rescue world and when I moved to LA, I felt there was a need for

National Hairball Awareness Day - Hairballs are the bane of many pet owners’ existences, but are you aware of what this unpleasant sounding and looking health problem actually involves? Having previously owned cats and having had innumerable felines as patients over the years, I’m well familiar with this issue and the treatment options.  So, I’ve put together this guide for other pet owners to best understand and manage the hairball issue. What are hairballs? Hairballs truly are as the name describes; balls of hair.  Hairballs don’t have to be perfectly spherical like a ball.  They can be oblong, round and flat, or take another shape. Technically, hairballs are called trichobezoar, but that term can be challenging to pronounce for owners and veterinarians alike. What causes hairballs? Hairballs occur when a pet ingests hair and it accumulates in the stomach.  Single or few hairs may pass through the stomach and intestines and exit the body as part of a bowel movement.  Many hairs can aggregate with each o

Feline Behavior Misunderstandings - Cats are often thought of as mystical and mysterious; in many legends and stories they re even associated with magic. As one who shares her home with cats, I can certainly understand why. Agile, athletic, intelligent hunters that can catch a nap anywhere and spring into action in a heartbeat, they often seem larger than life. Cats have changed little over the thousands of years they ve lived with us. Unfortunately, even though we ve shared our homes with cats for many years, misunderstandings still occur. Cats Need to Feel Safe One of the most important needs cats have is to feel safe. A cat who feels safe from attack (predation, teasing, or pranks) will sleep soundly without hiding. A cat who is worried will hide while sleeping or will only sleep lightly. A cat who is secure in her surroundings will awake to a gentle touch or sound by arching her back and stretching while a cat who is worried will bite, scratch, jump up in alarm, or will leap away. Many other behaviors that cat owne
Cats have changed little over the thousands of years they've lived with us, yet they're still confusing creatures.
