Talking Dogs: Salutes and tips for owning a canine friend

Dog lovers had cause to rejoice the last week of August, as the 25th was National Dog Day. This "Howliday" was started in 2004 to encourage the adoption of dogs in shelters - and bring attention to the ridiculously high numbers of such dogs. If you've decided you're ready for the responsibility of owning and caring for a dog, consider finding your new companion at your local shelter or a pure breed rescue organization.

Animal Island: End kitten's biting 'play' with a sock toy

Q: We adopted a kitten when she was 10 weeks old. She is now 5 months old and loves to be cuddled and is very affectionate. She also likes to grab your arm and hold on with her claws and also bites. One minute she is cuddling with you, and then suddenly she will just bite you. We have tried spraying her with water, which works at that moment, but then she will do it again a short time later. Is this a kitten thing, or is there something we can do to stop this?
