Light Cat Litter? Here’s the Scoop!

I’ve used clay litter for years, and it’s all Bubba Cat’s fault. When he was a kitten, he would not use the litter box. Instead, he would go right beside the box. I took him to the vet, and had him checked out. Bubba was healthy, so the vet suggested it may be the litter … Continue reading

Aggressive Dog? Depends on Who’s Making the Call

When Rumpy and I are out and about, we see all sorts of reactions in people. Some people get a look of surprise on their face, as though they’re not quite sure what to make of him. Others turn in fear of Rumpy. If walking, they head away from us, but often look to make … 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

If You’d Known I Was a Pet Blogger, Would You Have Acted Differently?

I don’t brag about being a pet blogger. I don’t hide the fact, either. Except when I’m test-driving a new service provider for my pets.  I want to see how they’d treat me if they didn’t expect me to go public with the experience. Today, Bubba and I returned to the new vet’s office for another … Continue reading

A Reprieve for Bela

We learned last week that Bela the German Shepherd was accepted by Best Friends Animal Society. Now we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief that he will not die before his time. And we can all forget that it was even an issue. I feel bad for Best Friends for having been thrust in … Continue reading

Our Letters to Santa

Dear Santa, It’s me, your favorite Malamute in the whole wide world- Rumpy! Now I know it’s crunch time for you and the elves, but I wanted to say hello, and ask if it’s not too much trouble, could you bring me a new squeaky toy? You see, I deaded mine, and I am sad. … Continue reading

Should a Dog Die Because the Owner Does?

What happens to your companion animals when you die? Some of us have no plans. Others of us have family members or friends who will take in our beloved companions, and provide them a comfortable home. Still others of us have made arrangements with a rescue group or sanctuary to care for our furry friends. … Continue reading

Does Santa Bring Puppies and Kittens?

MEOW! My name is June Buggie, and I have something to say! Two years ago I posted a rant entitled, Does Santa Bring Puppies and Kittens? The post is getting a good bit of traffic this year, despite Rumpy adding a disclaimer at the top of the page that we no longer believe what I wrote. … Continue reading
