@Mindthinkr, how is Squeaky doing?

She had the radiation and it was touch and go for a bit. From 14 lbs she got to under 5 🙀 I am currently the private chef to a cat with unlimited thoughts as to what she deserves 😹😹 Every day shows improvement, but her brother seems have some sympathy disease. He doesn’t want to eat either, but at 24 lbs I’m sure he is getting enough nutrients in to stay healthy and losing weight is not a bad side effect for him. Who rules the roost here? Clearly not me lol.

FYI I read something today and can’t post links so here’s the gist. In UK people are securing electric ties to homes where they have purebred or dogs worth stealing. Sometimes on a fence in the yard or on the bin handle. It you find a tie on your property that you didn’t place there, cut it off immediately. It may save your animal.

Sorry, but what is an "electric tie"? And if it involves a live wire of some sort then cutting it could be very dangerous. Could you clarify?

This is what they look like before they attach to anything  you thread one end into a hole (insert) and they don’t come undone and have to be cut off. There is no danger or electricity involved. They are used to secure wires. I hope this helps

Are they related?  If they are, the music I am hearing must be Dueling Banjos.🎵🎵

No, sorry, they bonded at the shelter, so I adopted them together.

They are really cute.   They remind me of the two black sibling kitties I adopted back in the early 90s.   I still miss those kitties terribly.

I felt a little foolish just now because I loudly praised one of my cats for using the litter box.  I had been worried about her because I caught her a couple of times over the last day or so in the litter box in the 'poop position' (as opposed to the 'pee position') and accomplishing nothing.  I was hoping that it was because I had moved the box outside of the bathroom into the hallway (so I could give the bathroom a good cleaning) and hadn't moved it back yet because I hadn't finished cleaning the room and she was just stressed about it and not because of a health issue.  (Both my cats--sisters--are 16 years old and their mommy worries.) A few minutes ago I was walking toward that area and saw her in the box.  I quickly and quietly backed up and casually sat down on the couch in the den and looked away (I didn't want to spook her).  When she jumped out I went over to investigate.  I then had to tell her 'good girl!  That's a nice big poop for mommy!'  🙂

I normally come in here after I've visited with my Ralphie, who (whom?) I consider my grand-nephew (what?).

But my leasing office just sent out an email that we can now have PETS starting September 1!
I am SO THRILLED! Most of you who know me, know it's depressed and saddened me that I couldn't have a fur baby of my own. Now I can!

So now I'm reaching out to all of you--can anyone recommend a good book for me to learn how to care for a doggie?

I'm definitely planning on getting one through a shelter/rescue.

I have a LOT of LOVE to give; I need and want to make sure to be a good Mommy.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I’m very happy for you. Very very happy because from my experience pets definitely enrich our lives.
Since you will continue to work long-ish hours I’d suggest one that is well housebroken.

Oh yes, definitely.

Plus, I'm going to be working from home until AT LEAST the end of the year. Not to get too off-topic, but our offices won't open until CDC deems it safe; and even then, not gonna until there's a vaccine and I get vaccinated. I take the subway/commute. While I hate working from home, home is where I'm sticking for the time being and my firm allows us that.

Congratulations, @GHScorpiosRule, on your future role as pack leader! Obviously, the first thing you need to do is get the Alli Collection of Bandanas. Wait...is that a COLLAR @bosawks? My world is shaken.

Harper classifies bandanas as a chew toy so we have to collar it while he is teething.

I was so hoping you would ask what you should name the dog you will be adopting. 

My vote is for "Bob Barker".

Will they be showing up on Maury Povich so they can find out who is the father?

Congratulations!!!!

I'm a cat person but I'll throw my opinion that an older doggie would be a good fit since they are probably more mellow and have a harder time finding furever homes.

Happy birthday, House Panther! (One of my cats is nicknamed Silver Panther, so she feels kinship with all other panthers.)

Harper looks like he enjoys the water just as much as Allie does!

This is a feral kitty I have been feeding since February. The ironic thing is he used to torment my late Baby Boo constantly from outside and I used to chase him away. He sprayed the doors constantly making Boo respond by spraying from inside. He has to be 10-12 years old and is arthritic, poor thing can hardly walk.  Boo passed in Dec 2018 and I haven't had the heart to get another cat. This kitty that I call Meow Kitty as he is very vocal  has never let me touch him and to this day hisses at me when I am putting out food for him. But he makes me smile when I see him eating on the deck or taking in the sunshine. He lives under my deck. He disappears for 2 weeks at a time when the pest people come to spray or the lawn people come to mow. I only mowed once so far this summer because of that. I know it is odd, but this kitty is in my heart...

I know he's "just" a feral kitty, but if you want to try helping with his arthritis, you can try Cosequin (glucosamine and condroitin). It's under $20 for 80 pills, which will last a long time. You can open the tablets and mix in the contents with the food. Start with just a tiny, tiny bit at first (one time a day) and gradually increase. It's supposed to be fairly tasteless. It is widely heralded and I personally had success with it with my late cat. I saw her arthritis basically disappear until she was much older. She started having issues when she was maybe "middle aged". She lived to 17 and still did very well up until the very end walking, playing, going up steps to the bed and low jumping.

Unfortunately, glucosamine and condroitin don't do anything for my arthritic knees!

Oh thank you! I'll try that. Poor guy moves both his back legs together, like a limp. If he'd let me touch him, I'd take him to the vet but that isn't going to happen.

Mabry Mill is just a stone's throw from where I live!  Jake looks right at home next to the millpond.  Beautiful day to be on the Parkway, too -- too bad I had to cut the damn grass, or I might have seen you there.  🙂

I have a fireplace mantle that the kittencat* likes to hop up on. He knows he's a naughty kitty when he does it but cats are gonna cat. I'd like to put some decor up there but since cats are gonna cat I know the kittencat is going to knock the stuff off. So, what I'm thinking of doing is making a little "fence" to protect the stuff. I just can't think how to make that work and still be safe for the kittencat?

*kittencat is 5. He's a smallish cat but he's not kitten sized.

No, I am not drunk.  I don't drink.

I think I have a pet monarch butterfly.  That butterfly keeps following me around the yard, and I am not sure why.  It has tried to land on me multiple times.🦋

It has done that for the past several days.  I wonder why the butterfly is doing that?  Is it some sort of sign?

I would interpret it as a good sign.
