    Since the dogs can no longer be trusted loose in the basement (they potty in it) I am considering taking back my spare bedroom upstairs and moving the small animals to the basement. I want to move my computer back into that room, its a very bright and sunny room that I want to have as a guest...

    OK, I still eat meat sometimes. I only buy meat (and dairy) that comes from free range farms and ranches, with (hopefully) better treatment of the animals, no added antibiotics and hormones, etc. My biggest concern is animal suffering. Having good lives while they're alive is important to...

    Is there any way to deter raccoons and other pests from ripping apart your garbage bags and strewing the contents all over the place? We keep the garbage in the garage normally, but I accidentally left a small bag on the step last night :rolleyes: What a mess I had to clean up this morning! I...

    I live in the SF bay area so it definitely doesn't get as cold here as it does for many of you. It has been about 50 degrees (give or take a few) this week at night. We currently don't have any heat in the house. Or heater is broken and we haven't replaced it. I want to try to get by this...

    As I sit here with my 127 lb. black lab mix dog trying to get under the computer desk, I am wondering to myself: Is anybody else ready for the fireworks to be over? Poor Ruby. She is shaking and crying. Of course, our stupid neighbors are shooting off tons of fireworks behind us and beside...

    I feel dumb, but... This morning I was in the kitchen making my coffee and I saw an animal out of the corner of my eye. I figured the neighbor's dog had just gotten loose, but when I went to the window I saw a pack of five of these things. I was lucky enough to have my digital camera on the...

    Why do people spend money on people for surgery when the pet is better off being put down and they won't spend the money to get an animal spayed? I know some people who had their elderly cat operated on. No telling how much they paid for the surgery. They knew ahead of time that the cat would...

    Went to my local Hallmark today, and they have their Valentine's Day stuffed animals marked down to $1.00 per toy! These are those big stuffed animals that have the hearts that glow and music or saying when you press their feet. I bought two, but the saleswoman at the counter says that people...
