A LIFESTYLE MAGAZINE FOR PET OWNERS Hello Readers, February has been quite an eventful and life changing month for everyone at PETIGREE. From weddings to relocations, everyone was occupied with one thing or the other. This time we have featured a few, different topics that will grab your interest for sure. If you have a baby on the way and have pet cats, do flip through the feature on toxoplasmosis, an infection that can be passed on through contact with cat litter. The good news is that you do not have to think of staying away from your pet, just exercise some precautions and let your partner take up on the litter-cleaning chore. In this issue, we also speak to the award-winning Virgin Radio Dubai presenter, Kris Fade, who makes every morning enjoyable with his show. If you have never missed any of his shows, you would definitely not want to miss his interview on page 12 where he introduces us to his lovely daughters and French bulldog, Boots. Have you ever wanted to be a vet? It’s never too late. Enrol now in the UAEU’s Veterinary Medicine degree and make your dream come true. To find out more, go to page 8 of this issue. Japan has always fascinated me with its history, rich culture and modern lifestyle. Travel with us and dine with your favourite pet at the famous petting cafes of Tokyo. Don’t forget to share photographs of your pets and their stories with us. We will be waiting for your mail. Until then, have a great month ahead.
