In DNA research actual cat DNA has been found in the human genome.
We have not yet found dog DNA traces in our genome.

and
olddude with the dogs
needs to be updated.

Senoufou now has two resident cats
and then there is the neighborhood cat who,
as she described on a different thread,
jumped INTO the bedroom window the other night.

Olddude, as described on another thread,
had to say goodbye to the Lab whom he rescued as an abandoned newborn.
Survived by the wiener dogs and the grieving humans.

Joe, I can just see you on the sofa surrounded by snoring dogs.

When we watch TV, Himself and I settle on the Lay-Zed-Boy settee in the (chilly) basement under an old fleece blanket, and the cats very soon join us. Within about ten minutes of flipping on the gogglebox, all four of us are staring at the screen. I'm not sure what the cats are seeing, however.

Marblecake is basically tabby but has tortie-like splotches of colour under the stripes. I thought she might end up more tortie-ish than she did, so the name doesn't describe her all that well now.

I had another cat once called Muriel because she was grey. You have to have been in Scotland in the 90s to get it.

We have three dogs, and I think it's wonderful when we all take over the living room and take a nap. What could be better?

We had a white cat who vomited, pooped, and shed white hair over everything. He died last year, and life has been easier since then. He was a prenuptial cat, even though he came after Christina and I got engaged. If I wanted marriage, I had to take the cat, too. We've had as many as four cats at a time, but I think this white one with its digestive and shedding problems, made Christina kick the cat habit.

I wouldn't mind have a cat living in the garage again, to take care of rodents. Trouble is, our garage cat also ate birds, lots of them.

Ollie gets that from his mother, Marblecake, who gave birth to him on our bed (Ollie has spent of his life ever since trying not to go more than a paw's reach of the spot where he first saw daylight). We got Marblecake as a 12-week-old kitten from a house in Glasgow where she was terrorizing the family dog. When I arrived with my cat basket to collect her, she was bouncing all round the house and there was a white Labrador huddled against the fence at the bottom of the garden.

I don't consider dogs inferior life forms, but I do prefer cats. That's mostly because dogs beg for my attention or loudly demand it, while the cats calmly go about their business, which may well include absorbing all the attention in the room.

Feline self-possession is a wonderful thing.

Forgot to add, we have all sorts of animals around in this village. The other night I looked out and saw a muntjac deer happily munching in our flowerbed in the front garden.

And another time, at about 2am a horse got out of its field at the riding school up the road and was clip-clopping up and down the street having a rare old time, until Ruth-across-the-road came out in her dressing gown with a bit of rope and tied it to her gate post, then phoned the owner.

Not only that, but last Spring, a few beef cattle got out of their field down near the river and spent the night wandering about being pursued by a very exhausted farmer and several neighbours.

It's all 'go' here!

The family across the road have been looking after the uncle's rottweiler while he's away on holiday. Blooming great muscular thing with a deep, fierce bark. (the dog, not the uncle)

Typical village, (everyone gossips about everyone else) their next-door neighbour, who knows a lot about dogs, told me things were getting a bit dodgy, as the two children were teasing it and chucking things at it. She said it would 'go for them' one day, which I thought was more than likely.

Yesterday, the uncle returned and collected his dog. Phew!

I love both cats and dogs. But not being too spry nowadays, I don't think I could cope with walking a dog and it wouldn't be fair.

Husband was wary at first of any dog (rabies in Africa!) but soon saw what lovely pets they make, and now he loves Harry, Marnie, Molly, Logie and Buddy (all the dogs which get walked past our house) and gives each one a cuddle and gets licked.

I actually like all animals (except spiders) If one has the patience and a bit of knowledge, one can soon make a friend of almost any species (except a spider)

We were invited round to our neighbours' house up the road two evening ago, and sat in their garden drinking orange juice. Their two dogs (Logie, border collie and Molly, cocker spaniel) had things called Conks. They're a hollow rubber toy which you fill with peanut butter and dog biscuits. The idea is the dogs bash them around and try to squeeze out the treats.
They were hilarious as they got madder and madder, dashing round the garden and bursting out from the middle of a thick privet hedge, each with a Conk in their teeth.
Very funny and friendly dogs, and in perfect health.

That's the ligament that Max the cat tore when I dropped him from a height of 2 ft.... he limped around the house for days and I carefully lifted him up and down from the sofa so he could snuggle. Then I saw the little bugger bouncing round the garden like nothing was wrong, until he spotted me in the window, whereupon the littel bastard started limping again. Needless to say, the coddling stopped there.

Speaking of expense, I had been warned that the surgery would run about $2000. and if the vet found that there were other repairs to be made and if there was a lot of debris in there that had to be cleaned up the cost could go as high as $2500.

Because Meggie's ligament was still intact- and that was all that was wrong - it ended up costing $1488.75. I wouldn't have paid $10,000 but I paid this amount happily and felt myself fortunate for it.

Meggie is less than 5 years old which made me hesitate to take her in the first place. I've been adopting older animals that have small chance of being adopted. However, I knew when I got her that she had medical issues - in addition to her ACL - and was functionally unadoptable. I haven't regretted it. She's a great little dog.

number 6, the things we'll do for our dogs, eh? A friend kept his old Fred going with a sling he rigged up to support him when he lost the use of his hind legs and I gave our old dachshund X a daily IV for 6 months because his kidneys were failing. After awhile he didn't like me very much anymore. I don't think I would do that again for any dog, but there were other extenuating circumstances in Wort's case.

Our female grey Heidi had a 'snapped' ligament. It is very painful for the animal and involves extensive and yes expensive surgery. It took about a good 3 months of recuperation. For the first 2 weeks after her surgery I had to carry her outside so she could do 'her business'.

It's the ligament in the knee, Stilly. In Meggie's case, we were fortunate that the ligament had not actually broken yet, just frayed and thinned and stretched. When the ligament snaps it can mean that the patella, the kneecap, also has to be attached in place, which is not only a longer surgery and longer recuperation and more expensive but more painful.

Incidentally, the replacement 'ligament' is actually fishing line! In little dogs like mine rather than imbedding the line they hook the line over the bone and wait for scar tissue and muscle to help hold it. Until then, the line is vulnerable to re-breaking. Eventually it will become stronger than the congenital one.

There is a recent - to me- phenomenon that boggles my mind.

Last month I had my Cairn Terrier's ACL problem repaired. When we went back a couple of weeks later to have her stitches removed and I was at the desk finalizing the whole thing, this bright young thing asked perkily, What is your dog's last name?

I stared. Huh? She repeated the question. I said, Well, I never gave her one. I can give you my last name though.

What's up with this?
