Animal Radio® Show #878

Pinot MeowDon't Drink Alone
Brandon Zavala was enjoying a glass of cat-themed wine when he came up with the idea to create a wine for cats. Now he produces a MosCATo and a Pinot Meow made from beet juice and infused with catnip. He did this so you could enjoy a glass of Vino with your Gato. Your welcome.

More Reasons To Celebrate
Robert Semrow, our Pet World Insider actually found '5 October Holidays for Your Pet.' Man, this kid can be creative when it comes to Listomania. Maybe some of these holidays were made up by Hallmark, or maybe your local humane organization. But, who's going to complain about more time to celebrate with our pups?

Dog seems to get along fine with SkunkSkunked
The Animal Radio "Dogfather," Joey Villani has tips on dealing with dogs (or cats) that have been sprayed by a skunk. He says the biggest myth is that tomato juice fixes that problem. We suspect the tomato juice industry is behind this fallacy. Imagine cleaning up a house wrecked by tomato juice and the skunk smell doesn't seem so bad. Joey also says "stay away from water, as that could make the problem worse." Dawn Dish Detergent seems to be the solution, again!

Battling Fleas
No doubt the U.S. is dealing with a bad flea season. Humidity in the east and a resistance to chemical products are mostly to blame. What are your natural remedies? How are you ridding your house and pets from this nasty parasite? We have some strange and unusual methods for removing fleas and stopping the scratching. And we're betting you have some of the household items that we suggest. Would you believe that a TV set is an effective way to get rid of fleas? And it does't matter what program you're watching, although we do recommend an annoying infomercial if you want the fleas to suffer.

Furry Family Instagram Sensation
Wolf GangSteve Greig's Instagram account blew up after he started posting pictures of his extended family. He lives with 10 dogs, 2 ducks, 2 chickens, a rabbit, pigeons, cats, Koi fish and a pig. All were rescued. About a half-million people subscribe to his Instagram feed.

The Better To Hear You
A four-eared cat named Batman found a new home this month within hours of being put up for adoption at a Pittsburgh animal shelter. This unique cat's extra ears are the product of a recessive gene mutation, which is needed by both parents in order to reproduce extra ears.

Richard Phibbs is on Animal RadioCeleb Photographer Helps Pets
Richard Phibbs is known as a celebrity photographer to Merryl Streep, J-Lo and many more. But he's decided it's more gratifying to take picture of adoptable animals, in turn helping them find homes. He says they're also easier to work with than the celebrities or their publicists.

Google's Double-Sided Duct Tape
Google has patented a new car coat that allows pets and people to stick to it. Officials say the most injuries from being hit by a car are when the person or pet hits the ground. This coating ensures that the victim will stick to the car when they're hit, keeping them from falling to the ground. This is for real folks... Google it.

Duck befriends DogDuck Befriends Grieving Dog
Two years ago George, the dog, lost his best friend, a Labrador named Blackie. George's owner, Jacquie, said that George was overcome with grief. But then a few weeks ago a duck showed up and everything changed. The duck and dog formed an instant bond and are now inseparable, going on walks together, sleeping next to each other in the kennel and spending quiet time together when George needs a rest.

Protecting Your Pets From Hawks
You might have thought that high flying hawks hunting for innocent smaller house pets down below in people's yards was an urban myth, but it does happen! In 2011 a hawk plucked two small dogs from their Boston area yard and dropped them from the sky, resulting in some pretty serious injuries. Lori Brooks will tell you what to do to avoid hawk-trouble.

Dogs in MRIProof That Dogs Understand Us
For all of us dog lovers this is proof of what we have always wanted to hear! The average dog has the ability to understand human speech. Scientists in Hungary claim to have found proof that dogs use both sides of their brains to understand the meaning, as well as the intonation of words, in much the same way that we humans process language.

Shares of several companies that sell pet food, develop diagnostic medical tests for animals and offer veterinary care, have far outrun the many other types of stocks this year, with an average total return of nearly 35% versus around 8.3% for the S & P 500.
