    Ok, I went to bonsaikitten.com and it is brutal. Don't go there if you are sickened by inhumane treatment of animals. Apparently it is a new trend, but a sick one. It involves putting kittens in jars so they will "grow" to the shape of the jar. I won't say any more.
    Count your blessings!

    Gutmutter, don't worry. It's not real.

    Thanks Amanda! It just didn't sound real to me either.

    Tex - my vet said that chewing feet is common, like a human who bites their nails. It becomes habit. I say it's still gross What a FACE your poochie has!! Here's a pic of Abbie from a couple of weeks ago.

    All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed; in
    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    Tex - yup, she's a Springer. Our old landlord had the mom and she wanted her to have one litter before fixing her, so she bred her. She's a purebred but nothing showdog about her. More like hang on the couch dog. LOL. She's brown (liver) and white. We keep her with a really short cut and I think it's so cute on her.

    I could stroke those ears all day, they're so soft.

    I hate that she's already 10
