Arden Moore, Pet Health and Safety Coach

Arden was a reporter and editor at a major newspaper for 20 years before she got into the pet field, and when she did, she realized there was one big thing missing from many training programs: safety—so she set out to change that by becoming a master certified instructor in pet first aid. Arden and Stacy talk about Arden’s cat Casey, her “teaching partner,” who is also a certified therapy cat. Arden believes strongly that cats can learn to do amazing, fun things that are also great for enrichment.

Tina Traster, Catnip Nation

Award-winning journalist, author, and filmmaker Tina Traster, previously featured on CCP Episode 186, joins Stacy again to update us on her documentary, Catnip Nation. The film advocates for TNR through the stories of four Good Samaritans caring for community cats around the country. “What we need in this country,” Tina says, “is a grassroots movement where it becomes imperative for politicians to recognize the role of a municipality in supporting TNR.”

Camille Labchuk, Animal Justice
