Just came across this link to American Humane Association regarding emergency planning. So, mentioning it to my own “survivor man”, we’ve decided to come up with a plan. He already has a ready-to-go bag (I did mention he’s my own survivor man), but I mentioned I don’t know where it is… and that we don’t […]


My first step in addressing the fleas was to thoroughly vacuum the house. Sounds so simple, yet it took me two hours!

I don’t think I’m being overly sensitive, or a bleeding heart to find this common situation unconscionable. I have felt for a long time that vegetarians, who don’t eat meat […]


Studies by the Environmental Working Group have proven household pets typically contain 2 – 5 times more toxins in their systems than their people. Woof! In this picture of Frank snuggled up to a giant toy St. Bernard, we can see numerous potential sources of contaminants. For starters, many commercial carpets are laden with formaldehyde. […]
