Re: Dolly

That does look cozy! I will say that one trick I used was to use my blow dryer to heat the bags before we got in. Nowadays, I am so cold natured that Glen keeping our house temp at 70 degrees year 'round is very cold to me. He likes a fan on at night. My compromise to the situation is sleeping under...

Re: Dolly

This is the type of situation Glen and I call the "sleeping bag syndrome". Years ago, we lived in this 50 year old farmhouse in need of many repairs and had no heat in the winter. Among other ideas, we decided to use his Marine Corp sleeping bags to keep warm at night. For some unknown reason, we th...

Re: Larson - Sweet cuddler recently diagnosed with FELV

Thanks...I am guessing that they figure that it would be "better safe than sorry", especially the way cats love to groom the ones they get along with.

Just got word that Larson is safe with a great foster!

Would you elaborate, please? That could increase this little one's chances for a home if that is no longer necessary. Hey stranger!!

Larson - Sweet cuddler recently diagnosed with FELV

You've heard of the underdog...meet the undercat. Larson was found mewing at a dumpster in Monroe, NC. He survived a rough life until he was taken in, and cleaned up beautifully. This 1-2 year old boy is as sweet as he is striking, and we thought he had a home in Raleigh. After just a few days the l...

Re: Snuggle Safe Warning!!

Thanks to Carol, here is another incident with the Snuggle Safe discs with no support from the company. I am over being amazed that they do not want to own up, improve or stop making them, but I am still amazed at the reactions of many of the consumers finding blame with those of us trying to inform...

Long Island - 8 yr old llasa lost beloved owner

Lucky is a darling boy who is just full of sloppy kisses and is never happier than when he is snuggled up getting a belly rub. He is very smart--when it's time for a walk, he brings his mom his leash. He absolutely loves to take walks and his next favorite pastime is to watch TV with his mom. At nig...

Re: Old dog Vestibular

I was also going to suggest different vets. This is a very common ailment which can come and go as quickly as it appeared. Sometimes, it leaves a head tilt, sometimes not. I would want to know for sure as well. If it is vestibular, it is a like an inner ear infection for humans which causes dizzines...
