Hurst: Hi there Carol! I’m interested to see what sort of animal news has caught your attention this week. I found the article about cell-grown meat to be some welcome optimism about the meat industry.
Carol: I agree, it was quite the ray of sunshine during this rainy week. And speaking of rain, make sure you check out what you can do to keep your pets safe during this hurricane season. It is important to include your furry friends in your crisis plan!
Hurst: Nice transition. Stay safe and I will see you next week!
