    Re: For animal lovers

    I'm so sorry for your loss, Jamie. My parents had a cat with diabetes and he went downhill very quickly after many years of relatively good health. It's shocking how quickly their little bodies can give out. You know you gave him a great life, which is the most any animal can hope for.

    I'm glad you got encouraging news about your pup. I'll have my fingers crossed and hope that you get the best possible news.

    just1paul ... I guess there is no rule about letting sleeping CATS lie?

    I know ... sometimes I just can't keep my hands off my dog.

    Lucky cat, lucky dog and lucky us.

    The cool part is when my kitty is asleep, and I caress her head, and she visibly relaxes even more. We just "get" each other, like that. I see that in Trouble, too!

    Absolutely -- she relaxes even more when I caress her head and her sides.

    I need some thank you gift ideas for my pet's Veterinarian and staff . Not anything expensive, just something to show my appreciation.
    Any ideas? Thanks.

    A nice card with pictures. A small cheese & fruit platter for the staff room, stuff like that.

    That's really difficult ... but I would say avoid the sweets and anything with a paw print on it!

    Give them a fruit basket or a coffee & tea assortment.

    Certificates for some pizzas from a local restaurant, or arrange for a nearby restaurant to bring them a buffet lunch.

    Cash is not a bad idea in my humble opinion. Give it with a foil wrapped coin and a note that says you are as good as gold.
    Creativity and your special words are what counts.

    Why do my gurls totally enjoy it when I bop them on their heads....actually, anywhere on their bodies....with my empty Dasani water bottle? You'd think I was giving them the best massage of their little feline lives! Nobody gets up and runs away. It's almost become a game!
