Summer is outdoor time for people and pets. Cats might get excited about summer. Unsure if indoor cats really feel the need to wander outdoors in the good weather (or if that’s what their pet parents think they feel.)

This summer, I frequently visit a puppy adoption event. Each week, the volunteers introduce five puppies to the public, most around 3 to 4 months old. They are all rescue animals from an overcrowded shelter in the southeast.
Petting puppies is a great stress reliever and this event is a winner. Most puppies are adopted into their forever homes. People leave the event smiling and feeling the joy of puppy petting.
