Office Pet of the Week: Angel


Angel loves people, especially her grandpa. She also adores her Kong squeaky ball, which she carries everywhere. The first thing she does in the morning is venture with it through the house, squeaking all the way!

Customer Story: Focusing on What’s Important


“I am very glad I have an ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan. When Carolina became ill, I was able to focus on what was truly important, her medical care and our time together, not the cost of the care. Carolina has since passed away, and now my elder cat Seneca is facing the typical challenges many older cats experience. Again, I can focus on providing her quality care and our time together. I depend on our ASPCA Pet Health Insurance plan.” –Sheryl B., Roanoke, VA

How to Train Your Cat to Come When Called


Does your cat come running when called? If you chuckled and answered no, you may want to spend some time teaching your cat this important trick. It comes in handy when you want to summon kitty for a mealtime, but can also be a lifesaver if your cat gets out of the house unexpectedly.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Stand a foot away from your cat and say, “Come, Whiskers!”
  2. Offer a favorite treat when your cat moves in your direction.
  3. Walk a few steps away and repeat the process.

It may take some time to get your cat to respond reliably, but practice makes perfect. Try to work with your cat once or twice a day for 5 minutes or less. Any longer, and you’ll likely lose your feline’s attention. Switch up the treats to help keep your kitty motivated.
