    This little cutie just walked in the door,

    laid on the floor and totally brightened up my day. I'd love to keep her but I have to find out if she belongs to anyone in my neighborhood. I'd appreciate having a new pet to love.

    I plan on getting a guinea pig soon!

    Is there any extra tips I should have? (Preferably from guinea pig owners/once had owned one) I'm pretty sure I have everything i need, but it can't hurt to ask for more tips! Or even if they're good pets or not, since I haven't got one yet.

    I have a black kitten,

    she walks like a tigress. She thinks she owns the house and all in it. What a shock for her to realize after a week she's not alone here! The Lord of this land decided to see who this little fluff was. As soon as he approached her; her hackles rose and her face contorted and her...

    I made a duck friend

    while on lunch today at work. There is a pond very close by and this little fella came walking up to me and sat beside be while I ate a sandwich. I probably shouldn't have, but I gave him a teensy bit of my crust to say thank you.

    where a man was upset that his dog had passed away. The person he was telling about his beloved pet said "I don't know why you are so upset? It was just dog." The man I guess felt embarrassed by this and then tried to act as if it was not a big deal. My heart broke for this...
