I ran across a couple of old photos of the Rumpster this week, and this one particularly caught my interest. It’s Rumpy with Junior, back 8 years ago.

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

Best Friends Animal Society is partnering with influential bloggers (They think I’m influential? How cool is that!) to get new members. What’s in it for me? If I recruit 100 … Continue reading
