My older cat has put on a couple pounds in the past few months, but he's still the surly devil he's always been. I need to buy a leash and harness for him so that I can take him for walks when the weather improves.

I feel sorry for Snowflake, his owners abandoning him to vacation in Cancun while their state is under threat from severe weather and the crises spawned by it.

Orwell might actually not mind this particular animal farm.

Somebody shot the man walking Lady Gaga's dogs, nearly killing him and making off with the two French bulldogs presumably for ransom. Man was in critical condition in the hospital last I heard.

I read the two French Bulldogs are estimated to be worth $10,000 each. That must be some pedigree.

Bald eagle population has quadrupled

Also, we thought my kitten had escaped the house but he was hiding in the basement ceiling, crafty little bugger. He was driving us nuts with his vanishing act, making me run around half the area looking for him.

Cop resigns after video shows him slamming his K-9 into a patrol car, NC police say

Thankfully, the dog is ok.

My concern is that asswipe just gets hired by the neighboring county. It is disgustingly easy for dirty cops to stay on the force even after resigning.

My son was bitten by a dog last Saturday, as we were helping some people catch their runaway pups that were headed toward a busy street. Now I'm discovering that I should have gotten their contact info at the time, since the Doctor wants to make sure the dog was vaccinated against rabies. Apparently, while very rare, you don't want to take the chance because if untreated it is usually fatal.

I'm not really all that worried (what are the odds?), but I'd rather not subject my son to rabies shots, and that's apparently the safe course if you can't verify the dog's status.

^That does stink. I take it they're not people you could easily track down?

All I know is where they were when we saw them chasing the dogs. I assume they live near there, but walking down that street I couldn't see them or the dogs, so my only recourse if I want to find them is going door to door and asking people if they know who they are. That is not something I look forward to, being a somewhat introverted individual.

You know, when I was a teen there was this short film about this kid who basically took Jurassic Park way too seriously, dressing up like he was on an expedition while his family took him to this theme park. He and his little sister get lost and he's treating it like they're really dodging dinosaurs while the parents are flying around in a heli looking for them.

I really want to watch that again for some laughs.
