Re: “Cat Cafe to Open in Oakland

Have you considered the open spot at 49th and Telgraph? It has large windows and high ceilings and I think the neighbors (i.e. my roommates and I) would love it!

Re: “The Oakland Cat Trappers

Trap-neuter-return does nothing to help the native bird population. It is time to eliminate this scourge of feral cats, which decimate wildlife. People who enable feral cats suck.

Y'all are an inspiration!!!! CONGRATULATIONS! Perhaps you'll have room to house a pair of foster pigeons with the cats... lots of good entertainment for all.

I had my deaf Dalmatian for 15 years, and it wasn't enough. Thanks for this story.

Re: “Sharing Fido

I really like this concept. When I first started the article I was......hesitant. But knowing there is an opportunity to get to know someone before leaving your dog with them, and building friendships is wonderful.

I'll be sharing this blog post with my followers tomorrow. I'm really curious on their take.

Re: “Different Pets for Different Folks

Too bad that you list East Bay Vivarium as a source for pet rats. If you look at their website, the only way they list rats is as feeders for reptiles. There are at least two rescue groups in the bay area that are better choices if you love rats: http://www.rattieratz.com/ and http://www.northstarrescue.org/

Re: “Pet Care Through the Years

Some of us are allergic to dogs or cats and aren't really happy with the idea of dogs being present everywhere. I will note that if it is somehow "reasonable" to take a dog or cat anywhere and everywhere, it should be considered equally reasonable for someone to take a chicken, a goose, a small donkey, a pony, or a boa constrictor anywhere and everywhere.

Re: “Raw Pet Food Diets on the Rise

I enjoyed the article; it provided an interesting glimpse into raw pet food culture. Having worked in the pet food industry for the past twenty years, I have seen many changes and the raw pet food movement is long over due. There has been a sea change in the expectations of pet food buyers as well as greatly increased scrutiny regarding ingredients and manufacturing process. We have a more educated buyer class and deeper concern regarding sourcing. I would like to direct readers and raw pet food enthusiasts to www.thetruthaboutpetfood.com. It is a terrific resource and they have a wonderful section called "Pledge to Quality and Origin of Ingredients". This lists pet food companies willing to make a pledge to full disclosure regarding ingredient sourcing. The companies listed represent a fraction of the 300 plus pet food companies in the US, but those that took the pledge have opened the doors to scrutinizing and discerning pet food consumers. The question I would ask is "why haven't all of the pet food companies mentioned in this article taken "the Pledge"? Only one company has....

Re: “Raw Pet Food Diets on the Rise

Primal Pet Foods is a privately owned San Francisco based company that began pioneering commercially available raw pet food over 10 years ago. We openly share all of our ingredient sourcing information and provide the highest quality, safest, and most complete diets in the category. The author and Heidi Hill should have done a better job checking their facts before publishing statements to the contrary.
