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

Cats, even those declawed in the front, need regular nail inspections on at least a monthly basis. 

Overlong cat nails begin to curl and cannot be completely retracted. This can cause the cat to become hooked to carpeting or other fabrics by a toenail, sometimes resulting in nail loss as well as destruction to your clothing and household items. 

Those ultra-sharp nails, if curled around a paw pad, can slice deeply and actually grow into the pad, resulting in a puncture and possible infection. 

If the nails look like fish hooks, you know it is time for a trim. We can trim your cat's nails at Green Acres or we can show you the tools you'll need and how to do it yourself at home.
