    Happy birthday pHAT!

    Aw, Henry is adorable! My girls will turn four in June, and I'm thinking of throwing them a party. I doubt they will appreciate getting a bone-shaped cookie, though, being feline and all, so I'd better think of something else to give them. They're crazy about crabsticks and tuna, so I'm thinking something along those lines.

    LOL at Gabriel's pic.

    Our dogs always have birthday parties. It started when our daughter was little. We would invite a few of her friends and have goodie bags, party hats, balloons and of course, cupcakes which the doggies got to share (not chocolate ones).
    Now, they KNOW when we have a cupcake, they see it and get ALL excited.
    We don't go all out now, but we used too. The year our boy turned one, we had his sister come to the party and celebrate with us. And my best friend had gotten a "cousin" to our dogs, so he came too. We had 4 Jack Russells, 6 kids and 2 adults. the pictures are priceless. We had a Wishbone party as Wishbone was poplular then and I was able to get all Wishbone party supplies. We had a bone shaped cake and the doggies all got treats and presents and the kids got goodie bags and it was really fun.

    Now there is a party kit if you get Birthday Express (or go to their website) called: The Dog. It's really cute. I'd like to use that. They also have a Kitty one.

    Our dogs also have their own stockings at Christmas and they KNOW about those too. They get all excited when the decorations come out and routinely sniff the stockings every day up until Christmas. Somehow they know on Christmas morning and RUN to their stockings and get all excited. We take the stockings down and put them on the floor and they go in headfirst for their goodies.

    For some reason, I've always referred to my boys...whoop, my cats as boys even though, through the miracle of modern veterinary medical, they are essentally gender neutral.

    Dog Stabbed

    This is a terrible story that happened here last night that has a happy ending. The dog will recover and donations have flooded in. His eardrum was punctured and he will be deaf but a police officer is going to adopt him. He almost bled to death. His eye is not damaged. And the local pet shelter will help pay for$1500+ in bills. The woman was apparently psychotic, intoxicated and off her meds. The dog did not resist or retaliate. Everyone who was at the scene of the crime was shocked by what they saw. It's amazing Kimitsiq is still alive. Everyone is relieved he will be well taken care of now and not returned to the family.
    ----------------------------------------------

    A west-side home became a bloody crime scene after a woman attacked a German shepherd with a butcher knife yesterday. Cops were called to a house by a man who said the 10-year-old family dog, Kimitsiq, had been stabbed by his wife.

    "The dog seemed very docile, just a really nice animal," said Const. Neil Thompson, one of the responding officers.

    Police arrived to find a grisly crime scene, created in part by a 20- to 25-centimetre butcher knife. Blood was splattered "in the kitchen, up the stairs and in the basement," said Thompson.

    ARGH!

    I just don't get violence, especially violence on animals and children.

    There was just a recent case like that here, a woman stabbed a cat in the eye. (one of the women died, the cat lived and is happily adopted)

    What's with harming the fuzzies????

    Help Needed!

    My son and DIL moved into a house last month, and for most of that time there has been a cat hanging around under their porch. They didn't think too much about it at first because they were new to the neighborhood. The other day my DIL inadvertantly locked the cat in the garage, when they found him he came up to them and was super friendly. That was when they realized that he has probably been out on his own for awhile because he was just skin and bones. They brought him into their back porch and have been feeding him. He's an absolutely beautiful cat, all orange with a big bushy tail. He's neutered and declawed in front, so he is clearly not a feral cat and belongs to somebody.

    Anyway, they have had the local radio station broadcasting this for 2 days, and have called the Humane Society trying to find the owner. The HS called back today and knowing the address, they knew of this cat but had no reports of him being missing from the owners. His name is Pumpkin and his owners (if this is the correct cat they are thinking of) live just 2 doors down from my son. They knew of this cat because they have had encounters with the owners before and they said they do not take care of him. That was obvious in how dirty and undernourished he looks.

    We have all fallen in love with him, I saw him today and he jumped on my lap and just crawled all over me. He even gave me a kiss. My son and DIL would love to keep him but they already have a dog and a cat. I would love to take him and am trying to convince my husband. We're going over when he gets off work so he can see him.

    So... here's my question. Does my son have an obligation to go talk to these people and see if the cat belongs to them, and possibly return him to them? I feel like he's not really their cat to give away if they know who the owners are. My son feels really strongly that he does not want the cat to go back to them since they are obviously not taking care of him. I'm torn because I agree with my son but I want to do the right thing. What do you guys think?
