Cats and Potato Chips

Dr. Ben Hart on Pet Life Radio ........

..Dr. Ben Hart............................

I’ve heard it said, that cats are lick potato chips…you can’t have just one.  But mixing flavors like the British turkey and stuffing variety with flaming Cajun American snacks could leave a strange taste in your mouth.  If you are like me, you have multiple perpetrators of TV screen paw prints.  Sometimes a clowder (a collective of cats) works and sometimes it can have dire effects on your carpeting and sanity.

The new book, Your Ideal Cat co-authored by my guest Dr. Ben Hart; board certified veterinary behaviorist and his wife, Lynette Hart, a professor of veterinary medicine and human-animal behavior will  tell us how we can keep purrrrfect harmony in our homes.
