They are cute. Currently they are curled up on the couch. Duke is in a heap, slumped against the pillow, and Sampson is above him on the back of the couch. I took a picture, I'll post it later!

OH, congrats on the puppies! :D

Glad you like the crow video. I love crows, so smart!

Here is an important article about unsafe cat food.

Thank you for the link, Neuro.

Our cats get Hill's Science Diet dry, but not the prescription kind in the recall. And the article says that the prescription kind is the only kind being recalled. It is gettng awfully close to home though.

I keep thinking of our sick cat, Chipper, but kidney problems have been ruled out.

Congrats, Llew!

Yeah, our furkids were on m/d a few months ago. We switched to regular Hill's Light, and I'm glad we did.

I think he's doing just Chipper, Merle!

Thank you for asking, Merle.

The meds ended Sunday morning, and as of today (Tuesday) no throwing up. He seems to be behaving normally. Possibly a bit more lethargic, but I could be wrong. We figure if he is still well by the end of the week that it is good news, indeed.

Heh! @ Aldan!

Speaking of the name, I don't remember telling why Chipper has this name. My son used to dog-sit a black lab named Chopper. I thought it was a really fun name for a pet, but a cat named Chopper didn't seem right. So I named our new cat Chipper.
