I noticed after I turned the water on Katie had her "uh oh" face on. Didn't think anything of it, took my shower, got out, went to the master bathroom to get something, came back to the guest bathroom and she is sitting in that tub, waiting for her bath. I guess they can be trained to have habits about unpleasant things like Joey and Mona's fire alarm. "Okay, someone I love was just in THAT tub, my turn" It must have to do with her "pack" because she has never done it to a guest in ten years!
    I LOVE it!

    It is cold. It's only 36 degrees right now, but at least it's stopped snowing. Last weekend people were complaining because it was 80 degrees. Hope they're happy now.

    Those eagles are so fun to watch. The parents are so devoted to the babies and all three of the babies are doing really well. Last weekend we picked up my two granddaughters and drove out to the fish hatchery where the eagle nest is. You can't get too close because the tree their nest is in is on private property, plus they don't want anyone too close to disturb them. We looked at them through binoculars. Our oldest granddaughter is 4 and she was thrilled to see them. Then we went home and I pulled the live feed up on the computer. She was even more interested in watching them because we had just been there.

    those babies are adorable E1 is what we call the oldest one is a brave little turkey..he is a stinker..he is always trying to get out from under mom or dad and you can always see his head poking out and Mom and Dad are doing such a great job in feeding all 3 of them cause if E1 had his way he would hog all the food so they usually feed him first til he is ready to pass out from a full tummy then the other 2 get to eat..but watching nature like this without their knowledge is awesome and gives you IMO a new respect for animals that share our planet..makes you realize that we are not the only ones here

    I was just watching them, Mother was feeding them, shortly after Dad arrived, Mom took off, and now Dad's feeding them. Wait a minute, I'm assuming it was the Mom, see what happens when you assume? How do you know who's who?

    Just a note to say...Bless you! Here the Shelter gives you a $20.00 voucher for the vet. You still have to pay about $100.00 out of pocket.
    What bothers me the most is usually, the people that drop their pets off somewhere because they "can't afford them" have a new kitten or puppy in a few weeks and you just know it will be dropped off again as soon as it isn't cute anymore. (My mom has done this many times) GGRRRRRrrrrrrr!!!!

    Pets are a life long commitment! They need us to take care of them just like babies do.

    Rant over.

    I leave the bathroom door open if I'm there there because Louie would just sit at the door and watch. However, now that Sophie has joined us, she runs like a bolt of lightening from whereever she is, if she hears me going in there. She doesn't stop at the door, jumping everywhere, sniffing away, I've never seen someone so happy to be in a bathroom. Louie looks at her from the doorway like she's nuts. That's the only place I'm having a hard time with the "down" command.
    I thought only mine did this. My kitten that we rescued last year has ripped about 5 shower liners. When you are in the shower she sticks her head through the hole and watches you. If you close the door she runs and jumps at it until someone opens it for her.

    My son's ex does this. Only with her, it's when the dog doesn't magically potty train itself that it has to go. Then a few weeks later, she's got another puppy. Very aggravating.

    I agree with you about the lifelong commitment. My pets are like members of the family. I could no more give one away than I could give away one of my children.
