Periodical Profile:  Cats & Dogs

Do you fancy cats or dogs? Whether you own one, or just wish you could, you’ll enjoy reading about them in Cat Fancy and Dog Fancy, two popular magazines you can find in our reading room.  Both are published monthly and contain well-written and informative articles about all aspects of good pet care.  For those who aren’t currently pet owners, the articles about breeds, behavior, psychology, advocacy and rescue, as well as the adorable photographs of kitties and dogs will keep you flipping the pages.  If you are looking to buy a new pet, both magazines have a large directory of breeders and classified ads in the back.

The current issue (October, 2011) of Cat Fancy features a DIY grooming primer, a profile of the Pixiebob breed, “who are often called ‘dogs in disguise’” and a special natural section that explains how to keep your cat’s environment organic and safe.  In addition, you’ll get a kick out of the “Most Unusual Name Contest Winners.” Read why some silly kitties got named Mice-Tro, Door Hinge and more!

The current issue (October, 2011) of Dog Fancy features the “Top 5 Cities for Dogs,” (there are no New England cities on the list), GPS tracking devices, training how-tos, rescue dog photo contest winners and profiles of the following breeds:  soft-coated wheaten terrier, Mi-ki and the standard schnauzer.  Great photos!

Cat Fancy and Dog Fancy are filed alphabetically in the reading room.  Lift the shelf to find back issues that can be checked out.  Or, settle in to one of our easy chairs and peruse the pages of any issue.  As always, if you have any questions (about animal breeds, for instance) please feel free to ask a reference librarian.  We are near the magazines and we love to help everyone find what they are looking for.
