Whether your affection for your pets knows no bounds, or your allergies to the furry little things are similarly unbounded; we've got all kinds of advice for you today. It's Ask Amy day, and Amy Dickinson will be here to answer questions about humans, while pet specialist Steve Dale will be here to answer all your questions about the animals. It's been a crazy week for pet lovers, with the pet food recall causing at least one pet lover (it's me! I admit it!) to consider feeding her little princess ... er ... kitty, home cooked meals. That's particularly odd since most of the humans in my house don't get that treatment. Before you start feeding your little fuzzbucket three course haute cuisine, listen to the show, or read Steve Dale's FAQ about the recall. It's possible you should spend your time knitting Muffy a sweater, rather than slaving over a hot stove.
