    I've read that cats virtually always stay very close to home and don't seem to be physically lost so much as emotionally overwhelmed by being in an alien environment. The trap is probably the way to...

    1. No seafood in the microwave.

    2. No smelly food at the desk. Well, maybe once or twice a year you can have a stinky lunch or breakfast, but if you're eating an egg sandwich in your cube every...

    My last two dogs would climb into the closet to hide. Since the closet is normally packed with junk, our first hint of a storm would be the incredible racket of a dog forcing herself into the coats,...

    You sound like you want permission to euthanize (intended as an observation, not criticism). He's your cat, you know the situation, and your decision is going to be the right one. It is very, very,...

    My commute goes under Amtrak's train bridge on the NJ side of the river, just north of where this accident happened. The route to NY stays on the PA side of the bridge, but an Atlantic City route...
