    No, I don't think it's particularly irresponsible for you to continue to let your outdoor cat be out of doors. I think that if you (general you) choose to have an outdoor cat, you should be prepared...

    I think that along the way in this, you've been misled. The idea of keeping him indoors is to prevent him from exposure to other crap and to prevent other kitties from him.

    We are on the same wavelength. I have watched my family members get dogs that are just terribly unhealthy or have major screws loose. I am honestly not willing to sign up for that from the shelter...

    Your husband sounds very sweet. It is hard to know that you have such limited time when you take on a geriatric pet. I have a soft spot for the oldies too, like you It might not make sense to spay...

    You can vaccinate against this for your other cats. I don't think keeping him indoors is wise as he'll be miserable. If you're going to do that, euth.

    Else...test everyone else and vaccinate...

    If she's not in good shape, surgery may not be an option right now. But once she's firmed up, no problem! You can DEFINITELY alter a dog later in life IF they can tolerate the anesthesia which you...

    To be honest, I prefer to just push the pill. I don't like having to worry about it being lost in a food item. And of course, many pills should NOT be crushed as a previous poster mentioned because...

    Puppy vs Adult dog.....lay it on me.

    When I was a kid, we never got to pick out a puppy. Dogs were dumped out near our farm and those became our dogs.

    When I was finally a "grown up" I got my first pup. He passed away after 13...

    I am not a veterinarian. However, if the pet was sedated with propofol then administered potassium chloride to interrupt the heart, it would certainly be humane and effective. It's just not...

    Oh....so many good stories, so little time!

    Ha ha!

    I've been "evicted" twice now.

    First time, the BO had been charging me for full board (stalls at night) but had been either A) doubling my...

    Not many horses are bombproof without a lot of wet saddle blankets and lots of experience which, based on how regularly most people ride and what access they have to get a horse out and exposed, may...

    I don't think the OP did anything wrong other than taking a dig at vacay and trainer. That was not very professional.

    Listen, I'm pretty sure I'm not nuts, but I was asked to leave a barn last...

    I was able to take our pup to my office for the first few months.

    But if I couldn't do that, I'd hire a good pet sitter so that the routines could be established and plenty of exercise was had....

    The point of my CO helmet is to protect my head. Therefore I ordered it and ride in one that fits my head. I wear my hair in. Low pony most of the time. If I had to stuff my hair in, for a show, I...
  18. Got new boots! Tredstep Donatellos. Question?

    Okay, first of all, these suckers are comfy right out of the box. Unheard of. They may be low end boots price wise but I am already loving them. And even if they only last me a year, I'll be happy. ...

    You guys who are all "nothing wrong with sedating" are forgetting some major stuff. You ever been UNDER a sedated horse?

    Sure, if sedating is the only way to make it happen? I get it. But...
