The Homeless in My Neighborhood

The homeless hang out in my neighborhood. Some are simply killing time out of the public eye until the Mission opens its doors at 4pm. Others find a quiet spot to hang out and drink. Still others camp out here. At one of the empty buildings on our walk route, some homeless have set up … Continue reading

Cats Steal the Show at All-Star Dog Rescue Celebration!

Last night I watched the All-Star Dog Rescue Celebration . May I just say that the people that put this show together are genius? In addition to showcasing dogs in rescue that are in need of homes, they hit on every rescue-related topic- from the importance of spay/neuter to the cost of rescuing to the need … Continue reading

Her Name Was Nola. She Was a Showgirl.

The world is mourning the death of Nola, the beloved Northern White Rhino of the San Deigo Zoo Safari Park. She was 41. Nola was around 18 months old when she was captured in the wild and taken to the Dvůr Králové Zoo in The Czech Republic. In 1989 Nola was again moved, this time to the … Continue reading

Live in the US? Love Big Cats? Read This.

Unless you have your head buried in the sand, you know that right now it’s legal to own a lion, tiger, or other big cat as a pet with little or no regulation or oversight. Hell, there are more laws regarding dog and cat ownership than there are big cats! But hopefully that’s about to … Continue reading

My Dog

The Rumpster is such a wonderful dog. He is always available as a dinner companion. And he’s so polite. He rarely whines for me to get up in the morning, though I may get a soulful, begging face like this one. Rumpy loves everyone, even the evil June Buggie. But I know who he loves … Continue reading

The Kitty Who Wouldn’t Take No For an Answer

There is nothing more sad than a little kitty who isn’t getting his way.   Why is June Buggie upset? Because I’m eating and he’s not. Never mind the fact he just ate his breakfast. Now he wants mine. If begging doesn’t work, he will fuss, and even resorts to grabbing food from my plate as … Continue reading

Seems like I’m always being asked to complete a survey.  Go to a website? I’m asked to complete a survey. Buy a burger? There’s a number to call to complete a survey and in return get free food during my next visit. Call a business? I’m asked to hang on after the call ends to … Continue reading

Isaeli Politician Calls for Deportation of that Country’s Cats

Looks like cat lovers are the same, no matter what part of the world they live in. Recently, Israeli Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel proposed to rid Israel of its’ stray cats by kicking them out of the country. You see, Ariel feels TNR is not Biblical, because it prevents cats from following God’s laws to “be … Continue reading

It’s All About the Marketing

Yesterday I read a story in the Daily Mail UK about a dog named Lana that was so depressed over being returned to Mighty Mutts, a Toronto animal shelter, that she refused to go on walks. Of course, after you read the actual article, you see that behavior lasted for all of one day. Compare that to … Continue reading

Death for Barking Dogs? A Social Media Dilemma!

Social media is all up-at-arms over the possible forced euthanization of two Port St Lucie, Florida, dogs that were taken into custody for barking. I first became aware of the plight of Princess and Duke when PR Manager Allison Gower  emailed me a link to a petition to save the dogs. Immediately I was raging … Continue reading
