Issue 2 of The Biscuit is now available, and we’ve got even more stories to tell. This time, our feature explores the life of the elusive Bilby, and we have information on toxic plants for cats, puppy farms, and the benefits of pet ownership for kids.
Just like Issue 1, we bust some myths: this time, the myths surrounding de-sexing of your pet. And top it all off for the cat lovers, there’s a highly-amusing excerpt from the diary of Megsy the cat that you just can’t miss!
In fact, every issue there’s plenty of stories you won’t want to miss. The Biscuit gives a unique insight into the world of animals and pets, as well as a glimpse into the work of our invaluable RSPCA staff.
There’s interesting news about the animal kingdom, we’ll keep you informed and there’s always a special feature - Issue 2’s special feature covers cruelty-free cosmetics and there’s something in the Biscuit for the kids too: cool facts, easy tips for owning a pet, and a fun activity page.
One of The Biscuit’s best features is the practical advice we give to those who couldn’t live without their pet. Our latest issue has a three page article on renting with pets (anyone who’s tried to rent knows just how much of a problem that can be) as well as a heartfelt article on getting through that sad time when your pet passes away.
At the RSPCA, we’re committed to educating everyone about the animals that we share our lives with, because we believe that the most effective and powerful way to change the way people treat animals is through education. Reaching individuals through The Biscuit is one way we hope to continue this process.
