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] - As you get your family, home and hearth prepared for the happy yet hectic holiday season, keep your pets in mind.

The holidays mean lots of food and goodies around, food that may be delicious to us but toxic to our pets. Make sure to keep food in a place where your pets can't reach it.

Christmas trees, as well as the ornaments that go on them, can be very attractive to both dogs and cats. Make sure that your tree is located in an area that your pets cannot access when you're not at home. Avoid ornaments that are made from food. Tinsel can be very attractive to dogs and cats and can also be fatal if ingested.

Keep your pet safe from poisonous holiday plants such as holly, mistletoe and poinsettias.
