We previously brought you Five Great Free Pet Apps that You Have to Try!
Since then, we have been on the lookout for more apps that are free (at least to start with) and that offer an interesting or helpful user experience.
Here’s what we found:

We all know that birds can become confused and fly into windows. But, according to ncaudobon.org, migration seasons mean bird casualties at nighttime when large numbers of birds are on the move, navigating by stars and in the midst of cities with lots of well lit buildings.
To try to mediate the problem, the Bird Friendly Communities program was formed. It is a volunteer-based initiative.
SANTA FE, New Mexico (PRNewswire) — Most people say they wish they had more time to take better care of themselves and to feel less stress. At least that’s what acupuncturist and wellness practitioner Carlyn Montes De Oca discovered when she asked her patients to name their biggest challenges.
With that information in mind, Montes De Oca created a gratitude journal for dog lovers to bring the qualities dogs embody most—playfulness, loyalty, grace, gratitude, courage, enthusiasm and unconditional love—to the forefront of their human’s lives.
We’ve used Frontline or Advantix to keep fleas off of our dogs for years. But, lately, neither seemed to be keeping away the fleas like they used to. So, we decided to try out alternatives.
You may have read, like we did, about Diatomaceous Earth for flea control. Some recommend feeding it — food grade quality only! — to dogs. Some recommend using it as a flea powder. Some recommend both.
It sounded promising, so we bought a bag of food grade diatomaceous earth and excitedly tried the second method, which is basically the rub it all over the dogs.

More than three times as many employees at pet friendly workplaces report a positive working relationship with their boss and co-workers.
BREA, California (PRNewswire) — A recent study conducted by Nationwide, in partnership with the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI), reveals that 90 percent of employees in pet friendly workplaces feel highly connected to their company’s mission and fully engaged with their work as well as willing to recommend their employer to others.
In contrast, less than 65 percent of employees in non-pet friendly workplaces made the same claims.
The study defined a pet friendly workplace as one that allows pets (regularly or occasionally) and/or offers a pet friendly employee benefit, such as pet health insurance.
More than three times as many employees at pet friendly workplaces report a positive working relationship with their boss and co-workers, significantly more than those in non-pet friendly environments. Moreover, these employees are more likely to stay with a company long term. The findings held true even among non-pet owners in both pet friendly and non-pet friendly workplaces.
IRVINE, California (PRNewswire) — Orange County’s first luxury hotel exclusively for cats will be opening in Irvine this winter.
Fashioned after luxury hotels and resorts, Club Cat’s unique accommodations are a departure from conventional boarding options for cats. Designed especially for felines, who are vertically inclined creatures, the suites are eight-feet tall and at least three and a half feet wide with enclosed balconies.
MINNEAPOLIS (PRNewswire) — Cat lovers can create a purr-sonal gift by customizing the illustrated cat in the book, If My Cat Could Talk, to closely resemble their own pet, choosing from numerous cat styles and colors.
The cat’s name and the names of up to four family members are also included throughout the story and illustrations. A special message for the dedication page and two photos can be added as well.
