Lizards aren’t usually the first things you think of when someone says “Cute pet video!” But, this Uromastyx is definitely cute! She rolls over to get her tummy scratched. I love her waving her little arms!
Procter & Gamble has issued a massive recall in the U.S. of both Iams & Eukanuba foods for cats and for dogs due to salmonella contamination.
Salmonella can cause severe illness in cats & dogs and cross-contamination to humans is possible resulting in serious illness.
- Here is good information on the symptoms & treatment of salmonellosis in dogs & cats. Check it out so you know what to look for and how to treat it!
- The FDA has information on safe pet food handling to prevent food born illnesses like salmonella.
- The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention has a very informative page on salmonellosis in humans. You can get slamonellosis from contaminated pet food and from sick pets.
If you have affected product, stop using it and discard it. For a replacement voucher, clip the code date and the UPC from your bag and mail to the address below. Include your complete address and telephone number.
If you have multiple affected bags, they want you to include a “register receipt with the code and UPC.” I think that’s a shitty way to do business! Other company’s recalls haven’t required this. Boo on Procter & Gamble—I’m not impressed!

It’s so interesting seeing different species play together—dogs seem to do that a lot. It’s no surprise we get along with them so well!
Cool upcycling! Do you remember this really popular post on making pet beds out of vintage suitcases. Here’s a project that transforms a vintage suitcase into a raised food & water bowl station.
Redditor, reallifedog, made this for his girlfriend and very kindly posted a good tutorial. I just love clever people! He points out he used standard hand tools except for a welder for the legs. Don’t have a welder? No worries—you can buy furniture legs at hardware stores and online.
(I’m assuming reallifedog is male. I did some snooping and found pics of his that show a guy’s hands. Yes, I’m that
thorough obsessive compulsive about researching posts.)
