Vets: Why Don’t They Treat Pets Like Family?

I am LIVID! This morning I took June Buggie to his new vet for a follow-up visit for his thyroid. When I called to make the appointment, I told them what it was for. I explained he had not had this service with their clinic before. I was given no instructions regarding prepping for the … 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

A Few Limericks for your Reading Pleasure

I got notice this week of my 5 year blogging anniversary. Wow! Has it really been that long? How about we celebrate with a new round of limericks?    A futball showed up here one day. I looked for its home right away. I put up a sign That said it’s not mine But it’s … 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

Idiots and Fireworks: A Love Story

And so it begins.  Sunday afternoon someone in this neighborhood shot off firecrackers. One. At. A. Time. All. After. Noon. Long. It was VERY annoying, but it was hot so I stayed inside and cranked up the radio. July 4th should be interesting this year. There are lots of dogs in this neighborhood living outside … Continue reading

Where Have You Been?

Sorry I’ve been so quiet lately. I’m still settling into the new home and a new routine in a new location, and I haven’t got my schedule down yet. I’m also now grieving for Malachi.     The cats LOVE the new place! There is an upstairs room and in addition to having extra space to run and … Continue reading

Update on June Buggie

It’s been two weeks since June Buggie was hurt. For several days he remained confined to Rumpy’s crate that was converted into a makeshift hospital ward. There was room for a litter box, food, water, and a towel to lie on, but no room to move around, which was good because he didn’t need to be moving … 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

On Moving a Multi-Pet Family

We are in middle Tennessee. For the most part, the move went smoothly. There were some issues- there always are- but we survived….. well, I’ll get to that later. If you are planning a move with your multi-pet household, here are a few tips that have worked well for me. Accept that the moving preparations … Continue reading

Letting Go

As you know, we are soon moving to a new place in a new town. And as you know, Malachi died. I chose to bury Malachi in the yard beneath a tree here. It’s a tree where birds sing to us, and one of the homeless kitties often uses the tree to climb onto the … Continue reading
