    Laxatives????

    There's a difference between putting a cat on a diet and taking away the all day buffet, you know.

    I got two kittens for the kids, long story but now I have the terrier who wants to eat them and the two kittens who are very rambunctious, friendly and assertive. So while the dog is trying to get out to where the kittens are, the kittens are trying to dart in.

    I have a terrible feeling about it. I got a harness for my dog, and actually let her meet them face to face...and she does grab their fur and tries to pull them (and ultimately shake and kill them, I know) so we're working on that. She's pretty smart, though. Hopefully I can get her trained without any fatalities. Also, they aren't tiny, so they are a little ahead of the game. I looked for a muzzle for her, but couldn't find one, and might just make one. I used to make them for the dogs I groomed years ago. I THINK she'll be okay, but it only takes once and I don't even want to go there.

    Feed your cat twice a day. Or put it on a chicken and tuna diet. They sleek down pretty nicely.

    That's the cutest water bowl I've ever seen.

    EZ, man up and start giving the shots yourself! There's nothing to it...

    Well, except for the rabies shot. They won't let us give those ourselves.
