Welcome to Maine’s radio show and podcast all about dogs and cats and the people that share their lives. Our goal is to inform and educate you about the needs and wants of your furry friends so that your lives together can be the best that they can be. 

Kate and I discuss the latest news from the pet world covering a wide range of topics such as; basic healthcare, how to choose a good cat or dog food, training, behavior, and management of your pet, resolving problem behavior, serious health issues, and more. Sometimes a show is just the two of us having a conversation, but we also have guests on the shows from our hometown, Bangor, ME and from all throughout the USA. Veterinarians, authors, trainers, behaviorists, filmmakers, shelter managers, and others have all shared their knowledge with us on The Woof Meow Show

Whether you listen to our podcast or to the show as it is broadcast on Saturday at 9 AM on Z62 Retro Radio AM620, WZON, and WKIT HD3, we hope you find the show enjoyable and a valuable resource and that you become a regular listener. If you have a topic you would like us to consider for the show, contact me at

[Click on image for audio] - The temperatures are dropping so it's time for some winter pet tips.

If your pet has been walking on areas that have been treated with salt, wipe their feet and pads with a damp cloth. You may want to consider using one of the pet-safe de-icing products.

Leaving your pet in a car can be just as problematic in the winter time as it is in the summer. Always leave a window partially open in case you have an exhaust leak.

Be careful if your pet has access to frozen ponds or streams. They can slip and fall in or the ice can break and they can fall in. Make sure you are physically able to rescue your pet if you walk them in areas where this could happen.

Be aware that cats often will crawl into an engine compartment of a vehicle to keep warm. Slap your hood before starting your car in the morning.
