This 10 year-old cat wasn't feral, and was having a really bad time on the street, being shy and unable to defend herself. She was terribly shy when she first came to me, and spent her entire first month here under the bed.

Look at her now though. She is relaxed and happy. Every time I think of where she came from and look at her to see how content she is now, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

She is beautiful. So are you.

I'm saddened by the lack of praise for the devoted squirrel lovers who post here. Those members deserve equal time and praise given dog and cat people.

Squirrel lovers unite! Stand up and defend your rights!

We went over to our vets' house for a few drinks last weekend and their darling little vet-in-training daughter (5) came up to me and announced the squirrels had peed on her! Turns out that they are keeping four flying squirrel babies in their mudroom (in an elaborate cage) until they are big enough to make it on their own. What neat little creatures they are!

Am not much into UTube, but this clip of aperson in the midst of a group of wild mountain gorillas is one of the most incredible experiences one could have.
The remarkable calmness of the person is beyond belief. Touched by a Wild Mountain Gorilla (Non HD version) - YouTube

Six amazing, unforgettable minutes.

We lost our boy Truman yesterday. He was a 110 lb Newfoundland/Akita cross who loved everyone. He was 10 1/2 year old, so had a very good, long life for such a big fellow.

RIP Truman, we love you.

Sorry for your loss - always tough to lose them. Sounds like you will have lots of great memories of Truman.
