Muldey, I think you say it all when you say your beloved pet is afraid of the syringe and afraid of you.   It sounds like this condition is chronic; your cat will need the tube or syringe for the...

Okay, I'm setting a timer for 15 minutes. I'm starting with the neglected dishes (we hand-wash, and not by choice--I find the power bill goes down when we have a dishwasher), and if that's done in...

I've got one that's proven to be a bit controversial in my IRL circle of friends.

No coupons.

They work well for non-messy people. I'm sure they save money. But in our household, they become...

I know I stand completely alone here, but if it's a choice between declawing and euthanizing a healthy animal, I support declawing.

My dad declaws his cats.

I don't like declawing, but in my...

If I'm expecting an important call, yes. Honestly, it's sometimes easier to take even an unimportant call and say "I'll call you back in a minute," than to let the phone ring. I'd be less annoyed by...

We used to have this problem, lol!

I'd buy the multipack of toothbrushes or razors, thinking it was a better value, set all of them out, and they'd all get used and worn! We're more frugal now,...

I have re-buried and had them live. In my experience, the ones that pass on during molting are the ones that fail to bury in the first place. Good luck!

I didn't want to read and not respond.

I probably would agonize about it if one of the cats died suddenly, but from what I've read about FIV, it doesn't kill cats suddenly.

I'm sorry about the little kittens that died, though. When we...
