Re: Covid-19 restrictions interfering with my cats dental care
Further information -

Minnesota is asking veterinarians to inventory their supplies for possible diversion to the Covid-19 battle. This includes what ventilators the vet has. In our clinic we have (2) ventilators, but neither are mechanized - Someone need to be present to squeeze the little rubber bag that pumps the air/O2/(& anesthetic?) mixture.

Re: My Cat Says I Am a Cat Person

The problem with knowing everything is learning nothing.

If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does, and do what they do.

Re: Good evening, Mr. Bond. Fuzzy and I have been expecting you.
In Never Say Never Again, Sean Connery's second comeback as James Bond, Blofeld (Max Von Sydow) is lecturing the members of SPECTRE while stroking the white cat on his lap. I've seen the movie several times but the last time I watched it I noticed that the cat is stretching and contracting its "fingers" the whole time.

A Dog Person
Yes, a lite topic with a touch of genetics, environment and a scourge on Red Delicious apples.

Apparently you have never lived with Siamese cats.

Re: A Dog Person
Isn't there controversy on whether a Siamese is actually a curious chimera of dog software running on a restricting cat platform?
I would love to have known the personality of a Siamese. All my other fuzzballs were like "Oh, yah, hey human? ... naa ... later. Don't you dare touch me, yet! I remember a sunbeam around here somewhere."
While my dogs were, dogs. If they're in the room you are the center of their world. Bring the ball, the rope, the chewed-up slipper from last year. Tiger and D'Oggy.
Still, her point on personality being more nurture than nature in the canine rings true. And her point on apples was spot on as well.

Re: A Dog Person
Dog owners have a God complex - they require worship.
Cat owners are like members of an abusive religious sect.

Re: A Dog Person
While my dogs were, dogs. If they're in the room you are the center of their world.
All the dogs I've known were like the worst room mates ever. I will say I've had 2 dogs that were obedience trained that were better room mates than a couple of my human ones, but the other 3 were pains in the ass.
I've had nine cats in my life and 6 were Siamese. They all had distinct Siamese behavior, but each had their own unique intense personality too. Edgar, our last one lived to be 23 and for the 1st ten years or so, made a habit at stealing any kind of carwashing mittens, fleece, shammies, etc. from the neighbors and depositing them as trophies at my backdoor. Slept on my bed every night and my wife said she pined for me when I went on my dragonfly expeditions. I miss the crap out of her!

Poll: Cat Person or Dog Person?
I find that they taste about the same.

Re: Poll: Cat Person or Dog Person?
Somehow I'd have thought cats would be gamier. Free range and what not.

Re: Poll: Cat Person or Dog Person?
Perhaps my taste buds aren't selective enough. I always order them with a side of gerbils.
