As you prepare for your Thanksgiving feast, I hope you pause and give thanks for that special dog, cat or other pet in your life. I'm grateful that my Furry Fab Four of Chipper, Cleo, Murphy and Zeki keep me feeling enriched and grounded 365 days a year.

In the Spotlight: Cancer Crusaders

Each month, Arden salutes people and groups doing grr-eat work to benefits pets. This month's pick: the Morris Animal Foundation and Veterinary Pet Insurance, two groups leading the fight to combat cancer. November is Pet Cancer Awareness Month. Check out this inspiration-filled video that highlights the MAF's Canine Cancer Campaign by clicking HERE.

You can play a vital role by keeping tabs on your pet's health and booking regular veterinary visits. Here are 4 ways to help prevent cancer in your pet:
  • Provide your pet with bottled or filtered water that is free of chemicals such as lead, nitrates or arsenic that can be in tap water.
  • Don't smoke. Exposure to second-hand smoke can cause lung cancer, lymphoma and nasal sinus cancer in household pets.
  • Keep your pet at a healthy weight and serve diets that do not contain artificial preservatives or flavors.
  • Avoid using house or garden pesticides and switch to organic, non-toxic products to reduce the risk of your pet developing lymphoma.

Paw Print
It's surprising more dogs and cats don't suffer from an identity crisis. After all, they know the names of our friends and family, but do they really know our names? I asked my four pets, "Where's Arden?" and none showed any sign of recognition.

Just who decided to declare that cats have nine lives? Why not 2 or 10?
