AGING PETS
It is evident that people are living much longer due to healthier and active lifestyles. This seems to be the same with our pets, also due to us including our pets in our activities as well as the advances in veterinary medicine.

Here are some tips from Kenilworth Vet on how to care for your ageing pet so that they too can enjoy their golden years!

WATCH YOUR WINTER ALCOHOL HABITS
There is nothing better than to sit in front of a blazing fire with a glass of red wine in your hand, or perhaps a whisky to keep the chill off. These habits seem to begin when the weather becomes cooler. But However, are you aware of what this indulgence does to your body?

Let’s take a look at how we can enjoy alcohol without harming our health and breaking our wellness goals.

CHOCOLATE MACAROONS

JULY IN THE GARDEN
The Winter thus far, seems to be quite mild, and thankfully there have been a few days of generous rain but still hoping for much more in order to fill our tanks and dams! The month of July is perhaps the one month in the year requiring the least amount of human involvement with regards to food gardening. The plant list is therefore the shortest in July.

BRIC-A-BRAC, UNWANTED GOODS APPEAL
Winter has arrived and with it the need to keep warm. Our furry friends too need warmthh. Animal Rescue Organisation appeals to each one of us for all unwanted goods especially blankets and pillows for the kennels, as well as bric-a-brac. You can drop it off at Norgarb Properties in 2nd Avenue.
