Sorry to hear that, Nick.  From reading earlier posts, it's obvious how much you cared for him.

My cat Scamper is 20 years old today. I've had him since he was a kitten.

I'm hoping for his birthday HE gets ME the gift of peeing in his litter box more than half the time again.

Wow Nick!  Your cat has lived a long life   :)  Very cool

Wish I still had a pic somewhere in here of my pup Maggie when she was tiny.  She's going on 6 or 7 now and is having some hip problems...at home, but not on her walks.  Need to get that checked out me thinks.  She's an indoor dog and pretty much sleeps all day so I'm thinking she just lays on it too long.

Never thought she'd grow to be 125lb dog, but she's a great security system!!

So my dog wound up tearing a ligiment in her knee a little while ago and took me time to find a vet through the shelter I got her at who wouldn't charge a ton of cash.  She's having surgery this morning and will be restricted to the lower level of my house for 6 weeks....and she has to wear the cone of shame.  Not sure how well that's going to fly but looking forward to her recovery.

Man... sorry to hear that.

One of mine got an ulcer on his eye this week... sounds worse than it is - some eye drops and an anti-infammatory and he's doing much better.

Sorry to hear that.  My dog tore her ACL at the end of May and $2000 later, she's better.  It sucked because she is a really, really active dog and with some of the "cooler" days we've had lately have really bothered her. But all in all, she's moving around full throttle again.  Here she is when I picked her up from the vet.

Forgive my dirty carpet, but this will soon be replaced.  My dog lives in my lower level while I'm at work.

Here she is almost fresh out of surgery.  She cries.....and I have 6 weeks to put up with this.  Not complaining, but she hates the cone and so do I, but it's neccessary.

This thread is full of memories. Some happy, some sad.

My new pets (cats) are a twin boy and girl, Rooster and Cricket. They were displaced as kittens after the tornado wiped out our town. Both are a complete pain in my ass, but I love 'em.

Very good of you to take them in Brad... 

I've got 3 feral kittens in my back yard that I'd LIKE to pick up and get fixed and re-release them.  I've got a neighbor bitching about it, but what am I gonna do ya know?  Their mother had them and they're not leaving because we feed a feral we did catch/release so she has steady food.  So they're sticking to what they know which is my shed out back.  I was set to tear it down this Summer and left it because of these 3 monkeys.  Wish I could catch them all at one time.

I'm worried I catch one or two and the third one freaks and leaves.

Jesse - you're so sweet.  We are in a different situation.  We live in a subdivision and our jackhole neighbor across the street has always let his cats run free.  The big male prefers to spend the last 8 years hanging out in the flowerbeds in our backyard killing birds and launching sneak attack the kids and the dog.  A couple of years ago a stray female came along and they have produced about 5 litters.  Guess where they like to live?  In everybody's yard but the owners.  They are all feral and nasty.  We spoke to our neighbor and they basically said they could give a crap about their cat - they only got it for the kids - and the kids are older and don't care anymore.  He said they put scraps out for the cats and he would be more than happy to put some anti-freeze in with them.  ::)  The first summer a litter appeared a few of us got traps from the animal shelter and got most of them - but they are like rats - they are everywhere and they are aggressive.  They get in our (and our neighbors) garages and one of the little dumbasses jumped on our nextdoor neighbors grill while he was grilling. It just pisses me off that people think it's okay to just let their cats roam free - but we take responsibilty with our dog and had him neutered and keep him in the house, fence or on leash.

Maybe I have finally hit on that great home-based business that I have been looking for.  I already have all of my start-up materials.
