Hi NANCY; You 're  certainly right on that point!Smile:Medical  science has shown that sharing life w/  pets  lowers BP & relieves depression.But we cat(& dog)   people know  the benefits are much greater than that:
They provide:
 a reason to get up each day
 warm feet & laps;
lots of laughs
 companionship
unlimmitted love & acceptance.Kiss  Re:

That's great Bev .... I sure understand about being possessed by a pet.

The air conditioner is roaring and it's just 75* in here but both of my cats loos like they're too warm ..... sound asleep on their backs with paws spread.

Hi Ann have a great 4th of July! My poor puppies don't know what to think of all the fireworks someone was having fun with last night.I sat down and they both jumped on my lap and finally settled down.I really think they know when everything is OK from the vibes they get from us.They are no longer affaid of thunder storms.When we relax so do they.

Yesterday afternoon we had a massive T-storm .... very bad wind (but no tornadoes) incredible rain. 
That scared the poor cats.

I had a Russian Blue cat that my dog Duke found on our tree lawn.I was a teenager at the time.Amigo,was badly injuried and we brought him in and nursed him back to health.Anyways I knew a thunder storm was brewing by how Amigo would act,it could be beautiful,not a cloud in the sky and this cat would almost crawl with his belly on the ground.Sure enough a couple of hours later it was storming like crazy.His nick name was "the Weatherman" .lol he was another one of my sweet cats.

My foster dog, Susie, is finally going to her new "forever" home after a year and a half with us.  I'm happy...but not.  I almost hope it doesn't work out, so she will come back to Basset Buddies Rescue and become a permanent resident here, but then there would be one less foster home for the rescue to depend on...Undecided

When I moved here the woman across the street was a foster home for Dobermans....... she's on break now.

Erica, What a wonderful thing to do.  It has got to be hard to let them go
when they get adopted. God Bless You!!

Hi Ann,so glad to see you back again.It was so loud over here.All the surrounding suburbs must have all set their's off at the same time it woke me up! The puppies did OK no major upset for them.Now if I could get them to stop barking at my neighbor every time he goes in and out of his house that would be nice, lol ! I guess they are just being good watch dogs.
