Retired at 54 to southern UT. BIG mistake. Oh, well, guess I'm stuck for a while. Husband and I cater to 3 cats. We also foster so it's rare that we don't have a spare cat or some kittens in the house. When we don't, it seems odd.

    I hit the COMMENT button before I was done; Unless a person is willing to really look after and properly care for any pet, please, please do not get one. If you’re up in the air about the care and cost of having a pet, do some research. Ask your friends what they spend at the vet. How much is the proper food? (the stuff we have to give our cats is $70 for 17 lbs and we have 3 cats. Why do we have to have that particular food? Because one had kidney stones that required surgery and this food has the right content of ash and other stuff to prevent it from happening again) I really need to stop reading Luann for a while – this arc just makes me angry that it’s so irresponsible.

    I know zippo about dogs, having never had one. But, I DO know cats. Saying “l cats aim only to please themselves and occasionally will curl up with you and purr when they are in the mood.” is absurd. Like humans, ever cat has its own personality. Some cats want to be with their human as much as possible. Some are more aloof. Some are needy and some are truly independent. As for going away and leaving a self feeder for a cat for more than a day is just wrong.

    Absolutely. I think these people are clueless and the rescue org person or shelter person should have done a better screening job.

    Patches is not doing well again. Maybe he’d like to eat at The Tasty Mouse.

    Just looked up planting regions for milkweed and we’re not listed at all. Usually northern Utah get listed but we rarely do, except for cactus and dirt. We’re two hours north of Las Vegas. It’s very hot and dry here. This place bites.

    I haven’t seen Bbears’ usual posting of cat pics. Did anyone get them in their email? I usually get them every morning.

    Why do we even need most straws? Can’t people just drink from a glass? I’m not counting people who have medical issues. I mean the general population. I gave up straws in 2002 and still manage to drink plenty of water.

    And, a great majority of kittens coming out of shelters have upper respiratory issues. This means they need oral meds (or a shot) as well as eye ointment. It’s not a lot of fun doing that. Rewarding when the babies are finally healthy and ready for adoption, yes. Fun, not so much.

    A responsible person person doesn’t take it foster animals and then tell/expect somebody else to help. Les and Gunther area adult, it should be a decision they make willingly.

    The realtor needs to tell her to stop looking at places she can’t afford.
