    Why are my rabbits fighting?

    It’s completely normal to have the occasional disagreement in any household or relationship, but when these can’t be resolved or escalate into a full-blown domestic it’s a problem. The same goes for your pets and their relationships with each other. There can be many reasons why your rabbits might not be getting on. Their relationship can be influenced by their age, sex, neutering, and other stresses or changes in a household.

    Why Is My Cat Tasting The Air?

    Have you ever watched your cat and wondered why have they stopped to sniff intently at that object in the garden, or why do they sometimes look like they are trying to taste the air? These are both normal cat behaviours that are important parts of cat communication. Cats are only able to perform these behaviours because they have a well-developed sense of smell allowing them to detect subtle scents. They frequently use their sense of smell, combined with other senses, when communicating with other cats.

As you get to know your new family member, you’ll learn and grow along with them. But what of the first few days after bringing home your puppy?

This isn’t an isolated incident either - every year similar reports surface (for example, in 2018, 2017, and 2007). In many cases, this is put down to a “heart attack” or “fright”; in others, it’s the dog’s attempt to escape from the terrifying noises that kills them. But is this a real thing? Are fireworks really that dangerous?
