No rant, just kittens.

One of those days… (explicit)

Posted on Updated on


I’m just crabby today – so crabby that Cheryl told me not to talk to anyone at work, so I don’t get fired.  So, I’m venting here.  WTF?  What’s wrong with the world?  Is everyone brain damaged?  First, the new updated Facebook app – why does it just keep saying Setting up and not doing anything.  I realize this isn’t life or death, but can’t anyone do their jobs?  Is that too much to ask?

And, then traffic – learn to drive your freaking car, please!  Could you just do that?  Use your blinker, don’t follow so closely that you have to slam on your breaks causing a two hour snarl, because you can’t drive.  I’m lucky I made it to work today!

And, then, can’t you take care of your pets?  For the love of Christ, I am tired of seeing homeless, abused pets everywhere – in the news, on Facebook, on news sites.  Is it too much to ask that when you make the decision to buy Fido that you take care of him?  And, can we please decide as a nation that you only get one chance at owning a pet?  No more of this you got one dog, but that didn’t work out so we’ll give you six others in succession to determine what the issue is.  The issue is the humans suck!  I know, some people can’t handle their pets.  We had to give our cat, Jack, to friends because he was miserable in our house.  He and our three cats couldn’t find a way to tolerate each other.  I’ve felt guilty about this ever since.  It breaks my heart. 

I can’t take anymore pictures of dogs with one eye, cats with torn up faces and the scars.  It’s breaking my heart and I can’t save them all – I’ve rescued four animals and our dog is a problem child – I cannot bring another animal into our home.  I donate, I give.  I can’t do anymore – so just stop posting this.  Please, could I go one day – just one FUCKING day?  Is that too much to ask of my fellow human beings that they act like animals and care a little about the people and animals around them?

Somedays, it is just so hard to hold it together.  I’m sure I’m just crabby and I’ll snap out of this – like I always do, but help me out here – BE A FUCKING DECENT PERSON TODAY and go help an old lady cross the street, thank a vet, donate to charity, volunteer or just make someone laugh and post that.  Put that on your Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.

Please, don’t even get me started about Ferguson…

Animals Continue to Amaze me

Posted on Updated on


Earlier today, you probably noticed that I posted a link about the compassion of animals – I posted it on the blog page.  Then, I saw this video about a dog nursing kittens.  I’ve heard stories about dogs nursing cats, cats nursing dogs, but watch all the way to 1:40 – it brought tears to my eyes.

And, then, I wonder.  Why do human mothers kill their young or mistreat them when animal mothers can be so tender to the young that aren’t even theirs?

Isn’t that a sad state of affairs?  When an animal is cruel to its offspring or to another’s offsprring, we just say, “Well, what do you expect?  It’s a dumb animal.”  But, we’re suppose to be the smart ones – the ones high on the food chain.  Shouldn’t we be better than a dumb animal?

I’ll get off my soapbox.  Watch the video.  Let me know if you cried in the comments below.

Enjoy.

Teddy and Skywalker

Posted on Updated on


Our cat, Teddy, likes to play fetch.  Our dog, Skywalker, hated this.  Since I am flying out of town for the weekend, I thought I would post a video of Teddy and Skywalker.  For those who know me, you are aware that Sky went over the rainbow bridge back in June.  Not a day goes by that I don’t miss him.

For the record, Sky didn’t play fetch.  He would chase the ball and then come back without it.

M’Lady Meets a Puppy

Posted on Updated on


Since I didn’t have anything for the weekend – and I didn’t want to leave you guys empty handed – I’m posting a video of my cat, M’Lady,  meeting a puppy.

You can see that she’s less than thrilled.
