How to Get Passionate About the F-Word
There are few things in this world that can make you feel as sexy and fit as the F-word. Of course, I'm speaking about that big thing you can really sink your teeth into... FIBER.

Simple Cure for Cat Constipation
The most common cause of constipation in a kitty is inadequate fluid intake. Cats are by nature infrequent and inefficient water drinkers. They depend on their diet for the majority of their water intake, which is how nature intended things to work. But herein lies the problem.
