Pet Wow - Vet Experience with Our Cat - Florence, KY

As my boyfriend and I are moving shortly, we needed to take our cat Daisy to the vet. Our new apartment requires updated records and a couple of shots she did not have up-to-date. When looking to book at short notice, we settled on Pet Wow in Florence, KY. They also have another location in Highland Heights. They were able to get us in for a weekend appointment and we had a great experience with them.

Surprise! Baby red panda born at the Cincinnati Zoo

CINCINNATI — A baby red panda has arrived at the Cincinnati Zoo. It's a happy surprise for the mother Lin, who had a miscarriage in May. In 2015, zoo researchers were the first to accurately predict birth dates for two cubs, born six days apart, using a combination of ultrasonography and hormone monitoring.

Yard House - Street Tacos & Onion Rings! - Cincinnati, Ohio

For my partner's birthday, he picked Yard House as his dinner date location. We went on Monday of last week and got the full sports bar experience, as there was a Cincinnati Reds baseball game happening right next door later that night. Regrettably, the nearby parking garage cost us $17 as it was a game night! We didn't let that damper our moods and had a lovely meal. The restaurant crowd did get a little rowdy, though.

Red Panda Cub Born at the Cincinnati Zoo!

Baby a happy surprise after mom’s miscarriage in May. Scientists at Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW) have devoted years to studying red panda reproduction and, in 2015, were the first to accurately predict birth dates for two cubs, born six days apart, using a combination of ultrasonography and hormone monitoring. By performing regular ultrasounds on super mom Lin, they were able to detect that she was pregnant in April of this year, but sadly the pregnancy was lost in May. Since red pandas are seasonal breeders, the team assumed that Lin would not be giving birth this year. But, two weeks ago today, she did!

Should You Go To The Kings Island Grand Carnival Event in Mason, Ohio?

Recently my partner and I went to Kings Island for their Grand Carnival event. The event is being held from 5 PM - park close daily and your last chance to visit is August 1st. As my partner is a gold pass holder, he was able to go for free, and I purchased a guest pass at a reduced rate using his pass for $39.99. We met up with two of our friends there who are also gold pass holders. If you go to Kings Island at least three times per year, the gold pass is worth it at a price point of $130.
