  Dear Cathy,
 
  I have some new neighbors that moved in with an outdoor cat. The cat uses our yard as her potty box.

Thank you in advance for any insights. - Wendy Rutland, Pensacola, Fla.

PET WORLD: Every dog is different, no matter the type of breed

 By Marc Morrone

Tribune Content Agency

Needless to say, this pup is the total opposite of Digger. Blackie is like the Energizer Bunny in that he just never stops moving. He has been recently neutered, which has not changed him too much. I know there are certain breeds that are known for their energy (Jack Russel Terrier’s) but on the other hand, are there breeds that are known for being calm? - Frank Williams, Baltimore, MD
