I personally, for reasons of my own, have decided to take the animal care lifestyle to the next level. I'm transitioning to vegan. One of the things I really want to do is to keep some semblance of my favorite comfort foods if I can manage it. So far, it looks like I can! So without further ado, here is the first recipe in my catalog of vegan comfort foods. I think I'll post these from time to time as I get them right.  Enjoy!

A Bit on Life without a Congo Gray

Posted by [email protected] on November 13, 2015 at 2:20 PM Comments comments ()

Today I am sad. Today I only hear the door latch to the basement once. No cheeky mimic from the other side of the house. Rudder is dead.


He wasn’t even mine. He belonged to my aunt. He was the comic relief in the house for 16 years. He was cantankerous and bitey, but he was still my curmudgeon friend.

Ways to Make It Work

Pet Insurance - Yes, It's Worth It!

Posted by [email protected] on December 5, 2011 at 7:15 PM Comments comments ()

When people think about getting a pet and caring for its needs, they usually make a list of things to include in their budget.

  • License
  • Vaccines
  • Bowls
  • Food
  • Collar
  • Leash
  • Bed, etc.
I'm here to tell you that the most important necessity of all is missing on that list:  pet insurance.  Pet insurance should be at the top of the list.  Sadly, I have seen case after case of financial euthanasia.  It's so desp...
