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

This week Don and Kate discuss the book Cat Sense by Dr. John Bradshaw with Dr. Michael McCaw from the Veazie Veterinary Clinic. Cat Sense, published in September of 2013, is the most current summary of why cats behave the way they do and how we can better understand them and enjoy our unique relationship with them. In this second of two shows, we discuss; the difference between female and male cats and what makes the best match when you have multiple cats, does coat color relate to temperament?, cats have become the number one pet in the US, possibly because they are "easier;" however, are we meeting all of their needs?, keeping our cats mentally stimulated and engaged, training cats, how do cats train us?, and the most common behavioral problems with cats.
