Changing dog sleeping habits from bed to floor
My dog (4yo male neutered Jack Russell mix) has been sleeping with me in my bed since I first got him when he was 6 weeks old. I have loved having him sleep with me, but now I am dating someone who would like me to train my dog to sleep on the floor. This has been very difficult for me and my dog. I am looking for advice on how to help my dog get used to this new routine without having to punish him for something I have always allowed before. I would like him to be able to still sleep in my bedroom, just not on the bed. What should I do?

Cat with runny diarrhea
My 4 year old male neutered cat has runny stools - diarrhea sometimes - up to 2 times a week. Originally I was feeding him Purina One but about a year ago, I switched to Iams hoping that might help the situation. Both the Purina One and Iams that he was/is fed are for adult cats. He's had problems with both products. He has a healthy appitite and is seems healthy. Is there a cat food that I could start out with that might help him?
