Steve Dale is Guest on the Purr Podcast

I had SO much fun talking with Dr. Jolie Kirpenstein and Dr. Susan Little on their Purr Podcast. Listen HERE. Two veterinarians I so much respect, and they interview me! Dr. Little, in particular, I’ve been friends with for perhaps 20 years. I’ve interviewed her dozens of times, and now she’s asking me questions. I…

Kitten Socialization Classes: A Kitten’s Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste

And New York state is now poised to be the first state to ban kitty amputations.…
