Continuing the theme of responsible pet ownership, this week we bring our feline friends into the spotlight and explore why they are often underappreciated and don’t enjoy the same status as dogs.

Anna Murphy from Breakfast on Friday asked how she can stop her eight-month-old British shorthair cat from waking her up in the middle of the night wanting to play.

Each year The Lost Dogs’ Home’s North Melbourne Shelter receives around 25,000 dogs and cats and a good portion of them arrive at the home as a result of irresponsible pet owners.

Off the back of the thought provoking BBC reality TV series ‘Don’t Blame The Dog’, currently airing on ABC 2, we look at key aspects of being a responsible dog owner.

Earlier in the program, Alan revisits a question we received from a listener who is interested in getting a new dog however, is concerned her anxiety may have a negative impact on her pet.

John from St Kilda emailed in to say that he took his 11-year-old Border Collie to the vet for her annual vaccinations and the vet suggested a blood test to check that everything was ok. Is this really necessary?

Have you ever gone through a rough patch in your life or just had an off day and realised on reflection how much of a positive role your pet played in helping you feel better?

A range of research shows that contact with animals can improve our wellbeing and state of mental health. A publication put together by Beyond Blue and Deakin University in 2010 found that caring for and having contact with pets encouraged owners to spend more time outdoors and socialise, added meaning to their lives and generally enriched and enhanced their sense of wellbeing.

On this week’s program we explore the strong connection pet owners have with their furry friends and look at ways to return the favour and maintain happy and healthy pets.
