Cockatoos unlock the secret of getting a treat
ConnectedByPets.com - Thursday, Dec 18, 2014

Faced with unlocking a series of difficult locks, cockatoos learn the order in which the locks must be opened so that they can get a treat. Bird brains may be the most intelligent in the universe!
From ABC news:

Getting called a birdbrain might not be such an insult after all. A new study published in the journal PLoS One finds that cockatoos, members of the parrot family, can figure out how to break through several complicated locks to get to a treat.

Alex Kacelnik, a professor of zoology at Oxford University and author of the study, said that the birds themselves were very playful and inquisitive. "They're particularly keen on exploring new things," he told ABC News.

Kacelnik and his colleagues, Alice Auersperg and Auguste von Bayern at the University of Vienna, placed a cashew nut behind a window fastened shut by a thin metal bar. The birds had to get through four additional locks that required them to pull a pin, turn a screw, remove a bolt, and rotate a wheel to reach the reward. More importantly, they had to do those actions in the correct order.

Fido may be improving your health
ConnectedByPets.com - Thursday, Dec 18, 2014

One way pets can help with health is to reduce students' stress during finals.

From the Washington Post:

Pets were once considered a leisure interest, one best kept at home. But there’s a growing recognition that in addition to companionship, animals may offer humans a tangible health boost. VCU is just one of many colleges making therapy dogs available to students to help them cope with the stresses of finals, says Sandra Barker, a researcher at the Center for Human-Animal Interaction at VCU’s medical school and an organizer of the event.

Humans have a long history of keeping creature companions, and if you ask most animal lovers if their beloved pet makes their life better, they’ll say yes. But can a pet improve our health? That’s a question that researchers are beginning to investigate. The field is still in its late infancy, says Barker, and the evidence remains mixed. At the moment, some of the best evidence for the benefits of pet interactions comes in the mental health arena, she says.

Pet tattoos illegal in New York
ConnectedByPets.com - Wednesday, Dec 17, 2014

New York has banned tattooing and piercing of pets.

From the New York Post:

“It’s simply cruel,” said Assembly member Linda Rosenthal. The Manhattan Democrat sponsored the legislation. While people can choose the pain of tattoos or piercings to satisfy their own “aesthetic predilections,” companion animals don’t have that luxury, she said.

The law signed Monday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo takes effect in 120 days.

There’s an exception for markings done under a veterinarian’s supervision for a medical reason or identification.

After 10 years, breed ban in Rhode Island town falls
ConnectedByPets.com - Monday, Dec 01, 2014

As the body of opinion and science that breed discriminatory legislation doesn't make communities safer grows, a Rhode Island judge has overturned the town of Pawtucket's ten-year-old breed ban.

From Journal Communications:

For the first time in 10 years, pit bulls paraded through the town Sunday, after a non-profit group, Pit Bulls for PTSD -- which trains service dogs for people living with PTSD -- organized a victory walk. A judge ruled on Nov. 18 that the 2004 ban was in violation of a Rhode Island state law that had passed in 2013, which stated that cities (towns) cannot ban ownership of a specific breed of cats or dogs.

You can read more about breed bans, why they don't work, and who else opposes them, here.


Shelter pets more popular than ever
ConnectedByPets.com - Tuesday, Nov 04, 2014

Getting a new dog or cat? Over sixty percent of people planning on bringing home a new pet say they're going to adopt.

From the Huffington Post:

The PetSmart Charities 2014 U.S. Shelter Pet Report finds that 66 percent of people considering bringing home a new pet say they would adopt their new furry friend instead of going to a breeder or other source. That's up from 58 percent in 2011.

Spaying and neutering is also on the rise. Eighty-six percent of pets are now spayed or neutered, up from 80 percent in 2009.

Put those figures together with increased pet ownership -- the report finds 81 percent of households now have a cat or dog (or both), up from 60 percent in 2009 -- and they amount to a real boon for homeless pets.

Man puts life at risk helping animals near Fukushima
ConnectedByPets.com - Thursday, Mar 13, 2014

If you're reading this, chances are you love animals. But do you love them enough to put your health and life at risk from radiation poisoning?

Canadian animal lover Howard Watanabe-Jin did just that after the nuclear disaster at Fukushima, where he's regularly worked in areas considered dangerous to help animals in need.

From CTV News:

"I think I sent (emails to) 11 or 12 rescue operations -- human and animal. And these (animal agencies) were the only ones that replied," the 51-year-old father told CTVNews.ca in a phone interview on Tuesday.

On the three-year anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami, Watanabe-Jin is speaking for the first time about his experience in Japan -- one that saw him put his health at enormous risk to save animals largely forgotten in the aftermath of the devastation.

With the help of the Japan Cat Network, one of the agencies he volunteered with, Watanabe-Jin was able to obtain a clearance pass into the restricted area near Koriyama.

Once a week, he would drive into areas as close as 10 kilometres from the Fukushima plant, setting up feeding stations on the side of the road for left-behind cats and dogs. The goal was to draw the animals in, so he and his coworkers could then trap them.

At the time, authorities were warning just how dangerous it was to enter the areas in which Watanabe-Jin was working. But he said that never really fazed him.

"We needed to do this because they (the animals) would just start to multiple too much," he said, adding that by 2012, many of the wild cats and dogs roaming the countryside were offspring of domestic pets that had been abandoned or separated from their owners during the disaster.
