My wife recently took a job that involves travel, and our 4-year-old tabby seems very nervous while she's gone - he gets clingy and very vocal, and paces around the house until she returns. What can I do to calm him down? The first thing I would recommend is to add some enrichment to your cat's everyday life. Provide things your cat can explore. They can be as simple as boxes and paper bags of all sizes, and to make them special, you could hide a treat of food inside. Cat toy wands are great, too. If you engage your cat in wand play, follow up with a teaspoon of warm canned cat food, which makes the hunting behavior they exhibit rewarding to them.

To care about the color of cat food -- to really fuss over, say, a roast-beefy red -- you must loathe hues of rust and old gravy. You must adore the way that an Italian grape skin extract can hold its purple with such might during the heat of pasteurization that it won't brown out (this is tricky, though). No matter where you turn, the world must explode at you in tangerines and peacock blues and glorious color, the way it does for Gabriel J. Lauro, food scientist. Lauro is the unpaid director of the Natural Color Resource Center at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has proposed new rules to protect pets, and their owners, from contaminated food. The Preventive Controls for Food for Animals rule would set new manufacturing standards for people and facilities involved in the production, packing and handling of food for pets and farm animals. The agency said this represents a shift from responding to safety issues to preventing problems. The rules can be found at fda.gov/fsma , and the public can comment.

A dab of ice cream on a hot summer day isn't going to hurt your pet much, but a steady diet of it isn't a good idea.My dogs love ordinary ice cubes as a summer treat, but they're even more fond of the "petsicles" I make every summer. They're easy to make: Just pour beef or chicken broth into ice-cube trays and freeze. I use salt-free broth with as little fat as possible.Cats are usually harder to please, but they may enjoy the same treats if made from clam or fish broth.No matter what goes into the treat, make sure the pets eat them outside, since the melting broth can make a real mess.

A woman who grew up rescuing lost critters has launched an effort to help pets and their owners survive financial crises together. Lynn Molnar is operating Thankful Paws, a food bank for pets, out of her White Marsh home. "The idea is to keep people and their pets together even in the most trying situations," she said. "Often in hard times, the pet is the cut that people have to make. " The seeds for the nonprofit organization sprung from the parade of stray cats, dogs and other assorted critters that found shelter in Molnar's childhood home, and from her mother, who nurtured a "spirit for animals" in her daughter.

On this morning in December, members of the club are making their regular visit to Morningside House assisted living in Parkville, where they help a dozen or so residents create flower arrangements for the dining room and another one each can take to her own room.

The shopkeeper was alarmed when he noticed that Wal-Mart was selling the stuff for just 53 cents, after a customer he recognized as a Wal-Mart employee was spotted browsing in his store. He countered, marking down the cat food to 49 cents, but lamented to a reporter that he couldn't withstand such crossfire for long.

A Las Vegas food import company, two Chinese businesses and the companies' top executives were indicted yesterday by a federal grand jury for their parts in a tainted pet food scandal last year that sickened or killed thousands of dogs and cats, the Justice Department said. The announcement by John F. Wood, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, marks the first time a domestic company has faced criminal charges because melamine - a chemical found in plastics that can cause kidney failure in animals - was added to shipments of wheat gluten, a binding agent used in pet foods.
