    We had to put out the electronic trap

    for a mouse. I swore I would let my husband check it, but I had to know the next morning. Stupid me. :'(I wish I had put a little peanut butter in the entrance so it could have at least had one last taste. I hope it grabbed some before it died. :'(

    It's My Belief

    Someone has to give their voice for those with none.  That's why I feel so deeply about animal causes.  They don't get heard without a little help, and they need help!

    I must say that I posted this on a comment to a previous story.  However, I thought it might need to be posted as a story.  I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma and the animal shelter (the POUND) puts over 13,000 dogs and cats down every year.  I'm a fanatic about neutering...

    Animals are probably the best creatures on this earth.  They don't create war, or plagues, or intolerance of others.  They are...just awesome, haha.

    I sometimes get a funny look when I say this, but I'll say it again anyway: I like animals better than people.They are loyal to the end if you treat them with respect, they never attack needlessly, and they never stab you in the back or tell your secrets or betray you. They love...

    Having your heart broken is seeing the

    condition of those poor animals in an ASPCA commercial. Being made mad as hell is finding out how little you give goes to their care but to administration costs.
