Monday Meowsings

Only the third day of summer (officially) and we are on day three of a major heat wave where I live so I decided to take this opportunity to share some hot weather safety tips for pets. The image of a pregnant cat on the verge of heat stroke in my neighborhood 3 years ago still haunts me so this one is especially important to Nanny!

Sunday's Child June 16, 2013

My first Father's Day since my Dad passed away and I'm missing him something terrible. When he passed my sister and I found a garden rock with an inscription that described him so perfectly and his relationship to his children

My father didn't tell me how to live
He lived
And let me watch him do it

Today's Sunday's Child video touched my heart because my Dad was the one who taught us how to ride a bike, skate, and swim. He passed along his skills and knowledge of golf, art, and music as well. He was a teacher both by profession and in his personal relationships. He was greatly loved and is sorely missed.

Vigilantism on Facebook?

Photo Source
Alarm bells went off for me the first time I saw one and now there several. I'm referring to pet related Facebook pages set up for the sole purpose of recruiting people to assist in identifying other Facebook Pages, and even individuals who comment on pages, who they deem to be trolls, and then launching campaigns to shut them down.
