I Can’t See the Forest for the Trees

Sometimes the truth is staring us in the face, and we still don’t see it. That’s how it is with me in regards to Bubba Cat. For the past two years, I’ve known Bubba has severe arthritis. My previous vet and I have worked together to manage his pain. He’s been on Adequan for a … Continue reading

Poetry By Cats, For Cats

This blog seems to have an unfair slant toward dogs. True, the blog is named after a dog, and dogs ARE more popular with humans than cats, but honestly, what self-respecting cat CARES what a human thinks? So to you cats out there who are faithful readers of this blog, even if only to take pot … Continue reading

Happy National Love Your Pet Day? WTF?

February 20th is Love Your Pet Day! I know, right? Like we need a day to remind us to love our companion animals? Well apparently SOMEONE thought you weren’t showing enough love to your pets, because Love Your Pet Day was set aside to, “remind pet owners to set aside time each day to appreciate and celebrate … Continue reading

Diary of a Dysfunctional Pet Family

I have a confession to make: We are a dysfunctional family. As the sole human in the mix, I have to accept full responsibility, though I really don’t want to. But what kind of goober would I be if I blamed it on the cat?   Let me explain. I wake up every morning to … Continue reading

And then there was one…

Exotic Animals in Ohio are Again in the News

Ohio has an exotic animal problem.  Yep, they still have problems, even after Zanesville and the so-called revamping of laws addressing exotic animal ownership. So what happened this time? Tiger Ridge Exotics owner Kenny Hetrick failed to file for a permit in a timely manner. State agriculture department inspectors also found safety problems, including inadequate fencing … Continue reading

Wordless Wednesday- Cat and Dog Edition

Who told you to do that, Rumpy?

The End of Rumpydog Blog?

Yes, we’re still here. I haven’t posted much lately, I know. I’ve just not felt like it. To be honest, I’ve been thinking about no longer writing about animal welfare. Researching those blog posts takes time, and it doesn’t generate readership. If I want readers, I need to either spout venomous hatred or provide non-stop cute. Neither concept … Continue reading

If Dogs and Cats Had Legal Rights…

Animals are not human.  That means, at least in the US, they are treated as property in the courts. But that is slowly changing, thanks to dogs and cats. Why? People are duking it out over custody of the family companion animal in divorce proceedings. People are suing for damages when a companion animal is … Continue reading

My New Year’s Resolution

Sometimes I wonder if it was fate that brought me to Rumpy, or mere chance.  He and I are nothing alike. I’d describe us as polar opposites. He is beautiful, while I am rather plain. He is fearless, and looks forward to whatever the next adventure brings. I am a worry wort. Rumpy is a … Continue reading
