What a handsome boy your Badcat is!  You and I are much alike, it would seem - and it's nice to know that SOMEONE is looking out for those wonderful creatures that "no one else would take," - they are often the ones with the most to give!  My sweet old Broadway, the basset with lymphoma, suprised everyone by making it through the holidays.  He is failing now, and I suspect this week I will have to send him to the Rainbow Bridge, but he still lifts his head and wags his tail and smiles when I walk in the room, and comes to lie by my chair at night for some ear scratching and belly rubs.  I know he won't be here for the anniversary of his adoption day, but I'm not at all sorry I chose to keep him - he  brightened my life at a time when I badly needed it (he even came to visit me in the hospital after my surgery and made the rounds of all the other patients on my floor!) just as much as he needed a warm place to spend his final days.

Ahem.  Now that I am getting all choked up and sniffly, I believe I will go get a coffee refill and gather up all my furballs for a big group hug.  Have a good day, Nancy!

I'm kinda' chocked up and teary-eyed too.
I'd better get out of here - go do some work or something - clean a litter box.

Does everyone know that if you give some money to your local animal shelter, it's usually tax deductable?

In Response to Re: ARE YO R PETS A PART OF YOUR FAMILY OR MERELY POSESSIONS??????????????????? : Hi Susan,Romeo is doing great today,yesterday he was still having an issue with hives some as large as golf balls.I don't think it was the bone,my son bought him two new toys and a new bed.All the items were made in China and I guess other people have had problems with items from China,I did some research and I guess they use lead based paints.We threw the toys out and we are going to wash the bed because it is machine washable,there might be something on that causing the reaction,he broke out yesterday after lying in it I think I'm going to make him some toys that way I know they will be safe.One of his favorite things to play with is an empty 20 oz.plastic pop bottle stuffed in an old sock and tied on the open end,he tosses it up in the air and catches it and chases it ,so cute to watch.Thank you for asking and Romeo says hi.

Gale...

I am so happy to hear that Romeo is feeling better!  Tell Romeo I said hi and Jinx said a doggie prayer for him!

The shelter I worked for called me Christmas Eve - someone had brought in a 21 year old cat because they wanted a kitten rather than to deal with the issues a senior animal might have.  They know I'm a sucker for the old ones that no one wants any more, and I didn't let them down - China has joined our animal assisted living facility, and is doing great.  Happy New Year everyone!

Gale, in case you feel like broadening your doggie-treat recipe collection, Basset Buddies Rescue (the one in WI, not TX) has a couple of people cookbooks with great sections in them with recipes for treats!  I think the first one has a better selection.  There are several that my hounds, foster and otherwise, enjoy a lot! I think the website is www.bbrescue.org, if you want to check them out!

Hi Susan, you are welcome,Romeo is definitely better,he runs to the heat vent anytime the furnace turns on,he likes the warm air blowing on him.He hates my hair dryer,the mixer and the food processer,anything that makes noise LOL I made him one of his favorite toys and he plays with this all day.A 20oz.empty pop bottle tied in an old sock,go figure ,you spend a lot of money on their toys and they like the simple things that cost nothing maybe we should take a lesson from them.

Gale...

Isn't that funny...Jinx loves to be in front of the heat vent too!  You know, Romeo's face and ears looks just like Jinx, the only difference is the coloring and markings.  Jinx loves water bottles too!  That is so cool!

I am glad to hear he is better!  Yeah!

Peaches loves laying on a heat vent too.  I think that's so funny -- it gets almost HOT.
Badcat is very frightened of the garbage disposal ... I never turn it on unless I know where he is.
Both Badcat and Peaches hate the vac and try to stalk it.
But they both want IN the shower - lol lol lol

Yell  That darn Badcat just unrolled a brand new roll of toilet paper.  He was doing that until I gave up and no longer put a roll in place .... I just set a roll on the edge of the sink.
Then I worked long and carefully making a roller that really held a paper roll .... it would allow unrolling but only slowly, with care.

HA!  It took that little monster no time to find the newly placed roll and spin it all out.

Badcat is a bad cat............... see how he got his name.

Yell  This morning I walked down the hall past the second bathroom.  Badcat (what a choice name) had unrolled THAT roll of paper.  He did a great job .... he unrolled it all into the toiled bowl.  A brand new roll!!  
Just yesterday I put it on the reinforced roller I worked so hard to make  - it didn't even slow him down.  What a mess. 
How on earth did that monster get the paper into the toilet?
I had to dig it out handful at a time.

Now that miserable animal is laying on the printer beside this little computer so he can keep a paw on my hand while he gazes at me purring.

Nancy...

I can see why Badcat got the name Badcat!  I bet she had a lot of fun doing it...they sure love to play and they can be so frisky! 

Gale...

The more you tell us about the antics of Romeo, I think he is the twin of Jinx!  Jinx loves being under the covers...one day I could not find him and I started to get upset.  So I looked all over the house again and I went up into my bedroom and after calling him for the fourth time, I see this little face coming out from under the covers looking at me like...Excuse me, but I was taking a nap!  What a life!

Our pets sure our spoiled!
