    The Pet Food Pantry Providing Food For OKC Pet Owners

    It’s a really tough decision, having to choose between food for yourself and food for your pets.   It’s a scene The Pet Food Pantry’s Candace Beaty is all too familiar with.   “So, like Meals on Wheels, those clients, they would take their one meal they get a day and the first thing they do is they divide it in half and give half to their pet and they eat the other half,” said Beaty, organizer for The Pet Food Pantry.  But sharing food isn’t healthy for the pets or the pet owners.  “So, we want to be that barrier where

Remembering to take the bird out of the freezer in time to defrost and cook is one of the biggest challenges in the run-up to the holidays, which caught out Justin Litchfield. Rather than letting it thaw in the fridge, as is recommended, Litchfield left the frozen meat on the counter instead, with the website BBC Good Food claiming you should traditionally allow 24 hours for every 2 kilograms of turkey. Seemingly thinking nothing of it,

    Cats Know Where Their Owners Are

    (Inside Science) — Anyone who’s met a cat knows that felines are notoriously difficult to keep track of. On nearly a weekly basis, one of my own disappears somewhere in the house, hiding while I fruitlessly tear the place apart and ignore the sinking fear that they may have gotten outside. After some period of time, they just … reappear. Thanks to a new study published Wednesday in the journal PLOS One, we now know that our pet cats likely never have the same worries about us. Cats, the study suggests, are able to track their owners’ whereabouts even

    Margie Varela, founder and president of the Street Dawg Crew of Utah, said she can relate to pet owners she sees living on the street. “I could have been there,” she said as she took a break from passing out pet food and colorful dog toys to homeless people and their furry friends on a recent Sunday in Pioneer Park.
