Welcome to MMilani.com
Written by veterinarian, consultant, teacher, and author Myrna Milani, this site is dedicated to furthering our understanding of animal health, behavior, and the human-animal bond. In addition to commentaries, favorite links, and biographical information, you will find the following:
- Information about available services, including problem dog and cat behavior consultations, behavior/bond consulting for organizations grappling with animal-related issues, and seminars and training for professionals and the general public.
- Articles that explore normal and problem human-animal relationships, normal and problem canine and feline behavior, and the different ways these may affect animal health.
- Discussions of and/or excerpts from nonfiction texts which introduce more in-depth explorations of these same subjects, and those from fiction which delve into more controversial areas of human-animal interaction, such as companion animal symbolism, zoophilia, and animal collecting or hoarding, among others.
This Month's Commentary:
Over the years I’ve encountered several people whose excellent writing skills I discovered purely by chance. Prior to those fortuitous revelations, I thought these people avoided writing because they couldn’t spell or found the rules of proper punctuation more confusing than those of quantum physics. But in all cases, I discovered they did write and wrote quite well. But they never shared what they wrote because they wanted it to be perfect when they did.
What does this have to do with working versus working, and working cats? That sentence, which reasonably may strike some of you as idiotic, sums of the problem.
