PET VALU CANADIAN EDITION In this issue 3› Alternative Litter Is alternative litter right for your cat? 4› Your Cat's Day 6› Prevent Heat Stroke Take a peek at what your cat does all day! S ummer means birthdays in my household. Lucy and I are both Geminis which means a lot of birthday presents are opened in June. Lucy always gets a nice, new wide collar for her birthday, complete with tags. I love the look of a wide collar on a big dog. I have my eye on the 1 ½" Calypso collar from RC Pet Products with a purple tag. She also gets a delicious, messy treat (to enjoy outside of course!) like a knuckle bone or marrow bone and a new summer toy which this year will be the Chuckit! Paraflight Dog Toy that we can take with us when visiting friends this summer. Mind you, I don't know who will have more fun with it – Lucy, or me and my frisbee-loving friends? Are you travelling with your pet this summer? Be sure to read our Travel Tips on page 18 to properly prepare and avoid any mishaps. Or, perhaps your pet suffers from travel anxiety? That's the case with one of our readers who wrote to us asking for our Pet Expert opinion. You can read her question and our answer on page 9. Whether you have a busy and eventful summer planned or a quiet, relaxing summer ahead, we hope you enjoy it with your families, pets included.
