Oliver in Training

This is a blog that follows the journey of a Sphynx Kitten on his way to becoming a therapy cat for cancer patients. There are also posts about general pet health, both dogs and cats, and also quirky stories about other pets, including a crazy Goldendoodle, and a sweetheart black Lab. There will be product reviews, and tidbits of information about pet behavior and pet technology as well. I am hoping to give the benefit of animal therapy for those who can’t have an animal at the moment, through stories and videos.

What’s your favorite pet tip that you would like to share with fellow pet lovers?: I would say that love and respect goes a long way as far as animals are concerned. Let them dictate how much of YOU that they want and then respect that and love them for that and you will get a lot of love in return. Animals do so much for us and it is only fair that we respect them and the work they do.

About the blogger(s): I am a 22 year old cancer survivor and I experienced a lot of anxiety and depression once I went into remission. I have worked my way through that, but my therapist suggested a therapy pet, just to keep me motivated. That is when Oliver came into the picture. He is a Sphynx cat and is the perfect guy to help me deal with the trauma of chemo. And as I was organizing everything for Oliver’s arrival I realized that not all people had the opportunity that I did, and that I should share Oliver, because there are a lot of people out there who could benefit. And then while I was at it I threw in some dogs too, after all cats and dogs have different charms, and I am hoping my blog becomes a place that pet lovers and those in need of some quality pet time can go to ease their minds.
