What is National Pet Day?

And we have yet another day to celebrate the non-human companions that share our lives. Continue reading

Living with Cats

I talked about how Rumpy is such a comfort to me since the election. But there are also cats that live in this home who are keeping me on the straight and narrow. I don’t have time to wallow in anger and hurt; I have two elderly cats with hyperthyroidism who are always hungry and … Continue reading

My Dog

Much is changing with our new president making sure he returns us to 1950s America. But there is one who is not affected by it all. My dog. Rumpy still lies at the foot of my bed each night, and at my feet whenever I’m home. Rumpy still walks the perimeter of our yard each … Continue reading

Pet Guardianship: Not All Peaches and Cream

Mommy bloggers want us all to believe that parenting is 24/7 joy and fun. Sadly, so do many pet bloggers. I’m not one of them.  To be honest, some days caring for a fur kid really sucks. Right now I am fuming because I have worked so hard to get the cats upstairs. I have … Continue reading

Why Do I Eat That?

As I grow older I find myself asking many of the same questions I did as a young child. Why? Many of the answers I get as an adult sound similar to those I got as a child. “Because I’m the mommy/daddy/responsible adult in charge and I said so, that’s why.” I find myself asking … Continue reading

Wordless Wednesday: Photo Update

Here’s some recent pics of the gang I thought I’d share. Enjoy!  

Going Vegan

I recently had my cholesterol tested. Though still healthy, the LDL number has creeped up, and it was recommended I start now to make changes to keep those levels from creeping higher. This is a big deal, because there’s a significant history of heart disease on both sides of my family. So I’ve ramped up my exercise … Continue reading

Numbness to the Plight of Dogs

So each year when the Yulin Dog Meat Festival takes place, lots of dog-loving people around the world throw a hissy fit. They post horrible things about the Chinese on social media sites. They sign petitions calling for an end to this barbaric practice. They send money to groups who purport to save dogs from slaughter. … Continue reading

Fireworks, Idiots and Sociopaths

Last night at 12:30 am, some idiot set off powerful fireworks here in the neighborhood. Approximately 5 minutes later they set off a second time. I know what time it was because the explosion woke me from a sound sleep. It also startled the neighbor’s dog who lives his life at the end of a … Continue reading

On the Death of Harambe

Harambe was a 17 year old Western Lowland Gorilla kept at the Cincinnati Zoo. OK, he was a prisoner at the zoo. I don’t care how nice the enclosure, I doubt, if given the choice to remain there or be free, he’d choose to stay. So a 4 year old kid decides he wants to … Continue reading
