This month we have gathered up some interesting tidbits about July. Hope you all are staying well and enjoying our sultry Florida summer days! Let’s jump right in:
Are afternoon Thunderstorms making you anxious?
We understand – and want to give you a heads up on this week of Fireworks. All that booming and popping plays havoc on our sensitive ears, cats n dogs alike!
Cats n Dogs store has stocked up on Pet Releaf CBD Hemp products. Hemp can calm you down! We can vouch for them. Come in and ask Nancy & Judi what we have available especially for you. It’s no fun feeling anxious every afternoon!
July is Pet Hydration Month
- Drink lots of fresh water
- Add extra water to your meals
- Enjoy watery treats like frozen bone broth balls or cubes

July is also Lost Pet Prevention Month
Did you know that once you get lost, there is a low probability you and your Humans will get reunited? Whew, that’s sad!! Just 17.4% of lost dogs and 2.8% of lost cats in shelters get returned to their owners.
Luckily, there are some things you and your Human can do to prevent that. Mastering certain discipline commands is one way to prevent getting lost.
We all know that micro-chipping is a great way to be identified. Your vet can update the info whenever your Human’s cell phone or address changes. Up-North friends – consider having both addresses put on your chip!
ALSO- put a name tag on your collar!! Most people don’t have chip readers, so if you’re lost in your neighborhood, your friends can easily read your tag! Cats n Dogs Store has super cute tags in colors and sizes – and a machine to engrave them. For the month of July, get a discount when you come in to get a new tag!
The Hot-Feet months are here
Mango wants to remind dogs and Humans about hot pavement during the summer. We have mentioned this before here, that walking early or when the day cools down is important to avoid burning your feet. When it’s 90-degrees outside, the pavement is about 150-degrees. Skin and paw damage can occur in less than a minute.
You can fry an egg on it! To tell if it’s too hot, have your Human put their hand on the pavement for 20 seconds. If it is not too hot for them, you probably can handle it.
A last item – July is Independent Retailer Month
Why is that a big deal to us? – Our pet supply store IS an independent retailer. We are a small, local business that exists to serve you. We are not a franchise or part of a big-box store. Taylor, Mango, Nancy, Judi, Harry & I (Buddy) work hard for you, our loyal customers. We Thank You for your support of Cats n Dogs!
Ok – That’s all for this month. Next month, we’ll answer some of the questions you have sent us. If you have a question, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And…. for this 4th of July – we wish you a Happy Birthday America!!
With a Wuf Wuf and a Meeeow, your friends,
Buddy, Taylor & Mango
