I Call Him Sam

Among the many ferals that inhabit our neighborhood, one has truly captured my attention. He’s a Siamese cat I call Sam. Sam has only one eye and a ragged coat. He is one of the regulars at Beth’s Diner, the feeding station for all the homeless cats in the neighborhood. Recently during our afternoon walk, Rumpy and … Continue reading

How a Curmudgeon Learns to Be Positive

She was a petite cream-color kitty with black facial markings and striking blue eyes. I often noticed her seated in the upstairs window of the apartment building Rumpy and I passed by on our morning walks. And then a week ago we spotted her outside. She was fearful of Rumpy, though he was across the … Continue reading

Cats Defeat Dogs in the Photography Department!

MEOW! June Buggie here. It’s always chapped my ass that dogs seem to get more of everything in this world. They have more money spent on them. There are more medications available for dogs than cats. There are dog parks, dog weddings, dog food out the butt. But FINALLY it looks like us cats have … Continue reading

There’s a Mouse in the House!

There’s a mouse in the house! From where? I don’t care. The evidence of his arrogance: Footfalls on the ceiling, A shelf containing tiny poo. What’s a woman to do? I worry not if mice are here.

It felt good blowing through my fur while Jen and I walked. We had two walks this morning! Jen said we both … Continue reading

Where’s the Diversity in Animal Welfare Advocacy?

During the economic downturn we stopped spending money on lots of things. But what did we not stop spending money on? Our pets. In fact, spending on pets actually increased during the recession, which is why every bozo with a gimmick is starting a pet-related business. So why does that love for our pets not … Continue reading

The Robins are Coming!

The robins came this week, signalling to us that spring has sprung, at least in the Florida panhandle.   It’s always a joyous occasion when the robins return. They aren’t here long, perhaps a day or two. And while here they are noisy, messy, and outrageous in their antics! And boy, do i love it. The … Continue reading

They Do WHAT to Dogs?

Every day we hear voices from around the world protesting the abuse and/or death of innocent dogs and cats.   But when it comes to dogs and cats being used in laboratory experiments around the world, those voices are eerily silent. Why is that? Some studies indicate we tolerate the cruelty of animal testing because we think it … Continue reading
