  Cat saved from imminent death, with move of one small paw.

 

stress out book, 3rd in series

Hi, my name is Sumner Davenport,
one of the authors in this timely book.
I am owned by a little black dog named Tigger,
and a flame-point Siamese cat, named Merlin.

Don't let the smile on my face fool you -
I am just like you
- attempting to figure out how to balance all of my obligations, deal with frustrations and setbacks, health worries, bills to pay, relationships and all the other everyday stresses ......
plus be a good guardian to the little animals who rely upon me.

The animal-human bond is a most beautiful lifelong relationship. Cats and dogs are our special companions giving an unparalleled kind of love. Yet, some of the ways we treat them adds to their stress, and to our own.

This book is a collection of real life stories from animal lovers and advocates who have learned something about themselves through the cats and dogs in their care. They have also learned how to better care for their animal companions which can then reduce the stress for both. In these personal stories you might read something that helps you to understand your animal companion’s stress and their needs, or find a way to prevent accidents, injury and some illnesses. We hope to inspire you, educate you and provide solutions to some of your frustrations.
