Sometimes the traffic in Houston just makes you want to stay home from work. Some companies are making it easier for employees to do just that by offering the option to telecommute.

On this edition of Houston Matters, we learn about telecommuting in Houston and welcome your questions for Veronica Baxter-Lamb, Transportation Program Coordinator for the Houston-Galveston Area Council's Commute Solutions initiative, John Capello from Sugar Land-based construction software developer HCSS, which has employees who telecommute, and Meghan Zubot, who works from home for the Houston real estate firm Transwestern.

Also this hour: Houston Matters once again goes to the dogs...and cats, as we welcome back Dr. Lori Teller from the Meyerland Animal Clinic to field your questions about the canines and felines in your life. We’ll also talk a bit about tick season, and why some pet owners seeking to pamper their animal companions with high end pet food may actually be feeding them the wrong food.

Plus: We’ll hear about the Rice Design Alliance’s 4th annual “Anything That Floats” competition!
