Neutering your Cat

When it comes to contraception and neutering for their own cats, animal lovers are often unsure. Neutering at an early stage appears to be essential when looking at cats without owners and overcrowded animal homes. But is it going to affect my cat if I deny it the chance to have offspring? What is the right moment for neutering? What makes temporary procedures different from neutering? And when is the right time for the procedure to take place? Regardless of whether you have a cat from an animal shelter a home or acquired one from a breeder, the question of potentially neutering your feline friend will have come up at some point. Cats from animal shelters are often already neutered before they are re-homed and as long as you aren't interested in founding a cattery, neutering is also recommended for pedigree cats.

Tapping on the Aquarium

Two researchers carried out an investigation into the noise exposure of one of the aquariums due to the visitors in the Schönbrunn Zoo in Vienna, and found some surprising results.

They hid an underwater microphone in a one cubic metre aquarium to register the effects of visitors tapping on the glass. Helmut Kractochvil and Harald Schwammer investigated this activity for four weeks, counting the taps per 100 visitors between midday on Monday to midday on Friday, and then from midday to Friday to midday on Monday. They then introduced three different signs with the inscriptions: “Tapping on the glass kills the fish”, “Only idiots tap the glass”, and “Please do not tap the glass”.

Nothing awakens the feeling of spring in a garden more than cheerful bird song. As snow and ice begins to melt, birds once again have a reason to sing, with the harsh winter over and difficult foraging a thing of the past. Most bird lovers begin slowly but surely to dismantle the birdhouses in their gardens – but wait! Even in the warmer months, we can be of vital assistance in helping our feathered friends find food.
Horse Health and Care

Hoof Care

There is absolutely some truth in the old saying “no hoof, no horse.” Horses’ hooves are always under stress, whether the horse is standing in the stables, out in the pasture, being ridden or in the school. The smallest deformity can have a disastrous impact on the whole of the horse’s skeleton. The correct hoof care isn’t as time consuming as most horse handlers think. One thing is especially important and that is continuity.
