Talk To Your Cat About Gun Safety
Zachary Auburn is on the show to deliver an important message. He wants you to know how to talk to your cat about gun safety, abstinence, drugs, Satanism, and other dangers that threaten their nine-lives. Zach believes we can make our cats - and America - great again.
Music for Cats Topping Charts
A special music album created just for cats is being lapped up by humans too, and has topped two classical music charts on Amazon and iTunes. Despite being allergic to cats, American cellist David Teie released, "Music for Cats," featuring five instrumental compositions after raising more than $200,000 on Kickstarter. On the album, bird chirping accompanies his cello playing along with purring noises based on his theory which he researched for two years, that mammals have an intuitive response to sounds present in their early development.
Drive-Thru Restaurant For Dogs
Bane and Vader are a couple of gentle, barrel-shaped bulldogs. They're also the namesakes of a unique new business in Easton, Pennsylvania, "Bane and Vader's Drive-Thru Restaurant," exclusively for dogs. Pull up and order a FreshPet meal with your choice of add-ins including fruits, vegetables, eggs, and peanut butter. You might even want to take home some doggie ice cream for dessert. Their mom, 30-year-old Amanda Brown, left her job as a pharmaceutical sales representative, but she's back to work making what she calls Yappy Meals and Bow-Wow Bowls for motorists who want to treat the pooches to something special. Her idea came from a survey that found one in six restaurant drive-thru customers picks up something for a dog, too. While some restaurants offer special menu items for dogs, In-N-Out Burger has a special unseasoned Pup Patty served in a doggy bag and Starbucks offers a small cup of whipped-cream called a Puppuccino, Bane & Vader's is strictly for the dogs. It has no special menu items for humans.
Airport Hires Therapy Dogs
With the crowds, and the lines, flying can be stressful. So, the Albuquerque New Mexico airport has come up with a way to calm you down when you travel. More than a dozen therapy dogs are joining the thousands of passengers at the airport. One of them is known as "Turbo," and he loves people. He especially loves to lick guys with beards. Turbo is one of 15 certified therapy dogs and K-9 ambassadors now giving peace to stressed out travelers. Thanks to the 70 people who volunteer their time to handle the dogs, the program will be expanding the number of therapy dogs soon.
