    Where is the best boarding/cats or cat specialties listed ? Even though there are far more cats in U.S. households, they seem to be somewhat forgotten. And since they are our quieter friends I feel we should draw more attention to their speciific needs. We, in Houston are extremely lucky to have at least seven cat only veterinarian clinics and many multi-animal practices who have cat specialists on staff. We really need to publicize this so that kitties get the care they need from a vet who doesn’t treat them like a small dog. Cats are defineitely different. So how about more cat specific articles?

    The categories for cats are best cat grooming, most friendly staff and best boarding facility (this was not distinguished between cats and dogs because many of the pet resorts also board cats. FatCat Flats is one of the choices..thanks for your input! And yes, we need more cat articles. It seems that only veterinarians want to write about cats. If you have ideas of wirters that would like to submit cat topics, we are all ears!

    Catnip Inn is the best cat groomer in town! They also have the best cat boarding facility se up in the world!!! Cats who are not confrontational can roam freely and not put in a small 2×2 cage (or something ridiculous!)

    The staff is also wonderful! They truly care about your :kitties and our cats like going there! They are the BEST!!

  36. Fran Brown

    I was surprised to see, once again, that Different Strokes Pet Boutique is not on the ballot for Best Re-tail Shop. The solution, obviously is to write it in. It’s a great shop, carrying unique and useful items for you and your pets. I’ve dealt with them many times and have always been satisfied!

    As noted in our intro, PetTalk ad sponsors are the listed choices; we can’t possibly list all businesses, however, we encourage you to write in your favorites! Shelly at Different Strokes does a great job with her store and PetFest, so please write in your vote in the “other” category.

    Claws and Paws Veterinary Hospital ( in Pearland. No pet clothes or stuffed toys – just high quality vet services. Drs. Ramsey and Wickel, and their staff, are TOPS in personal attention. We’ve been through a lot in 10+ years, way beyond the everyday vaccination care. They’ve saved one pet’s life, and helped us part with others. They take the time to answer questions, to make sure issues and resolution options are understood. I recommend them to all pet-friends, and would entrust my life to their ICU vs any human hospital. Dr. W. is also a Cert. Vet. Acupuncturist and offers natural medicine options.

    A Dog’s Life is a wonderful caring place to have my companions groomed. They are very loving with the animals and do a beautiful job. I had all but given up finding a place that I and most importantly my pets could depend on and enjoy. Plus they have a boutique with unique items that I really enjoy.

    Club Canine has been an absolute life changing experience for us and our dogs. I never realized how out of balance we were untill Dean Miller at Club Canine really showed us how much easier life with our two boxers could be. We thought we had it good, but now…we have it great! I would reccomend Dean at Club Canine over and over and over again. My 4 year old and 7 year old boxers are turing into helathy and engaged family memebers, like we always wanted.
