    Don't Get Me Wrong

    I love pretty much every animal out there but there's no way I could open a shelter for them. It's so expensive, for starters.  We have two cats right now and every time they go to the vet it's amazing how much it costs!  I can't imagine paying that for 50 or 60...

    Bless The Beasts

    Today there was a collection at work for the latest mega jackpot lottery. The jackpot is some obscenely enormous amount of money. I kissed away $5 and threw it into the kitty. What would I do if I won a large sum of money? There would be the obvious pay-offs of debt and...

    I Want to Help the Animals.

    It makes me so sad that there are so many abused and neglected animals. Cats and dogs that don't get spayed have kittens and puppies, and they're  often left to die. People don't feed their animals and the poor things slowly starve. Other animals are left in horrid...
