Dear Christopher Cat
Can you suggest some good animal chat rooms? I’d like to converse with other cat lovers.
My favorite is the ASPCA Community, sponsored by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. To join us, go to www.aspca.org/community.
Of course, most cats are not as sophisticated as I, so the participants are usually human. And they discuss not just cats, but dogs and other animals as well.
Additional online places to communicate with animal lovers are www.animalforum.com and www.mypetspages.com.
To talk with people grieving the loss of their pets, visit the Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement chat rooms at www.aplb.org.
This Web site also has a chat room where animal care professionals can discuss compassion fatigue.
If readers write me with their favorite chat rooms and bulletin boards, I’ll pass the information along.
And remember to direct your pet health care questions to Daisy Dog and me at www.askthevetspets.com.
