    Earlier this year, I wrote an article about keeping small animals safe in hot weather. With the winter months now upon us, I figured it was as good of a time as any for a counter-article on what to do when things get chilly. As an avid guinea pig lover myself, I’ve always considered it extremely important that the owners of piggies and other pocket pets understand what to do to ensure their comfort in extreme weather. After all, many of us go to great lengths to keep our cats and dogs safe with weather changes – we can’t forget about the little guys too!

    Wanna Go Vegan, but Not Sure Where to Start?
    Some say it’s a fad, others it’s a lifestyle, and for many, it’s a path to healthy living. It’s also, of course, a major lifestyle adjustment that doesn’t always come easy. Habits take time to break. And as someone who’s recently attempted veganism, resetting my palate and resisting the urge to go back to my animal-eating ways has been a challenge, but I’ve pushed through.
