Remember.

Today, we remember all those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks that shook the United States on September 11th, 2001.


We purr and pray for peace.


Our thoughts truly are with all those who were affected by the 9/11 attacks.

Our Tip of the Day:
We previously mentioned how we will try to lump our tips into themes. That being said, the next few tips will be based on a heavy topic, that being the potential of cancer in our furbabies. More particularly, we will be giving tips on ways to hopefully help prevent various forms of cancer.

Spaying and neutering your furbabies is not only important because of population control, but also because, like humans, they can develop cancers of the reproductive tract, such as uterine or prostate cancer. What’s more, the timing of spaying or neutering is crucial. It is important to try to ensure that your kitty or pup is of course old enough for neutering, but also not too old. This is because, for example, there is an increased risk of mammary cancer in spayed female cats and dogs who are allowed to go through one or more cycles prior to being spayed. So, of course be sure to spay and neuter your kitties and pups, and to do so before they can be affected by an increased risk of cancer.

  1. Sweet photos.....sweet doodle today too. Hubby and I were on vacation in Paris on 9/11 - we were ever so happy to get back home. Had to keep Sammy in the kennel for extra days until we were able to fly home - it was just scary. Sending hugs to everyone today!

    Love, Pam and Teddy too

  3. Today's Tip Of The Day is something that needs to be said over and over. Folks sometimes wait for spaying or neutering, and there is no need, and it can be harmful to wait. So many low-cost spay & neuter clinics now, or vets will work out a payment plan...just do it! 9/11/01 was a sad day; we mourn for all who lost their lives in the attacks and after while helping the rescue efforts.

  4. Nice to see Evan enjoying his door. Have you ever made a doodle of him dressed as a doorman? That would be so cute. Today is such a sad day in our history, very nice drawing. Excellent tip, spay/neuter is so important.

  5. It was a horrible event. We are in the throws of Hurricane Irma and it is pretty scary. So far we are all right. You all have a great day.
