No need to get a pair of protective eclipse glasses for your dog or cat, experts say they don't normally look at the sun.
In today's NASA briefing about Monday's solar eclipse, co-chair of the National Solar Eclipse Task Force Angela Speck remarked, "It’s no different than any other day. On a normal day your pets don’t try to look at the sun and therefore don’t damage their eyes, so on this day they’re not going to do it either."
Veterinarian Dr. Tom Reaping of Youngstown, Ohio says, "Pets have a built-in ability to not look at the sun anyways so they are not going to be looking at that area."
If you're still worried, simply keep your pets inside --with the shades drawn-- during the eclipse.

The Coconut is basically […]
With the U.S. cautiously reopening, it’s probably time to take stock of where you’re at. After spending all these weeks in the house, you’ve likely already assembled a little list of items you either realized you were missing or need to replace. And those kinds of revelations probably apply to nearly every room. We got […]
