Site Maintenance July 28

Due to preventive maintenance the forum may be offline starting July 28, 2011 starting at 1:01 EDT (5:01 GMT). This maintenance window is scheduled for 2 hours but the hope is that it will be no more than 30 minutes.

We are apologize for any inconvenience.

And if you can't get that done, see if you can at least 'fix' some of our reps in DC. I'll chip in to help pay the vet bill...

Thanks to the server admins for keeping this place running smoothly. I know it takes more work than most people realize.

Are you sure you can afford that? Spay and neuter fees are waaaaay up in the last few years

You can't spay or neuter parasites.
