    Medical Arts Press, a company that specializes in providing office supplies, filing supplies, postcards, furniture and more for veterinary and physicans practices, believes that vets are heroes, too. They believe it so much that theyre...

    It helps to...

The coat colors of these tri-color cats are the result of the interaction between genetic and developmental factors.

Calico cats have an orange-fur-color gene...
