Ace of Spades Pet Thread



Good afternoon and welcome to the almost world famous Ace of Spades Pet Thread. Thanks for stopping by. Kick back and relax. Enjoy the world of animals.


A Little of This. A Little of That.

Everything you wanted to know about cat insurance but were afraid to ask. No not everything, but it's a good link.


From our resident cat fan Shibumi. Cats are the biggest jerks and photos to prove it.


Meet The PetMorons




Well, last night was a sad sad one here at the Satrose household. My daughter works at a small pet rescue shelter. (It ’s called Charming Pet Rescue and was started by one woman). An old feral dog had a litter of puppies a week ago and one of the pups wasn’t going to make it. My daughter brought it home because she didn’t want it to die alone. It was hard on her (and me!) to have to sit there and do all she could but know that it was going to die. And it did.

BUT the real story is that these small shelters DO make a difference, one dog at a time. Meet Kingston. He was a poor woe begotten mess of a dog that was dumped at the Shelter’s gate. He had a severe skin disease (I think it was a type of mange) and was in bad shape. Plus he did not want to be touched by anyone, having probably been mistreated.

But The staff at Charming got him medical care, worked with him, fostered him and found a forever home in the Northwest. Here is an amazing picture - you won’t believe it is the same dog!

There are happy endings. We just have to believe and work hard, and never give up.

Keep the faith! Love your pets, you are making a difference.

God Bless,

So sorry you had to experience the heartbreak of that puppy's passing. Although a hard thing to do it was such the right thing to do. Thanks for sharing the positive news of shelter rescues.



This Big Poodle. He had to get paw surgery and had to wear the cone of shame. He was not happy. (No name given)

Hopefully Big Poodle is on the mend and is scarfing down snacks left and right. Thanks for your submission today.



Cousin of Ed and Fred; my grandpup, Oliver. So smart,funny, and very loving! Look at those paws!! -LASue

Paws? Look at those eyes asking, "Can I have a doggeh cookie please?!" Lovely pup, thank you for sharing.



Hello MisHum!
As previously mentioned, people sometimes move away and leave their furries in the street.
I found this one, or rather, she found me. Obviously an outdoor cat, older, female, long hair. No chip, but wearing a collar with the name “Audio”. Which seems appropriate because she has a very loud purr.
So, looks like I have a new foster charge, maybe a forever home for Audio.
She is keeping the mouse population down pretty good.
Kindest regards, navybrat

I saw the Subject line of Audio and I thought no way I can just post an audio clip. Big surprise when I opened the email and came across this pretty cat and a pretty neat story. Thanks for the contribution today.



Greetings, fellow moron!

I loved the pet thread today. I just realized that I should contribute to the community more. Long time reader, rare poster, etc. But some things will shake me out of my comfort zone.

I lost Auzzie yesterday. Brings a new meaning to Black Friday for me. He was 16+ (we don't really know) and he had what I hope was a wonderful life with us. He certainly seemed to enjoy it. He brought me so much happiness that I wanted to give you a picture of him in the hope that he could give a little happiness to the Moron community, even if it is just a brief smile and a "awwww".

Requiescat in pace, Auzzie.

Oh I 'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Auzzie lived a long life and from the looks of it a happy one in a beautiful location. My condolences.



This is Drago, been meaning to send something into the pet thread, but always forget until I read the Pet Thread. So, I send this now, for maybe next week. Not sure how long the waiting list may be.

Australian Shepherds are not from Australia, but a cattle dog bread from the American west…go figure. The wife ask what to name the pup as she was heading out the door to take him for his 1st Vet visit. I was kicking back watching McLintock. Chill Willis had just uttered the line "I'm still the ramrod of this outfit. That better be followed by a "yes sir"”. Well, Drago it is. He is wicked smart. He will look at you, cock his head to one side, and you can hear the wheels spinning. Barbara is retired now, and he is never more than 10 feet from her. Unless the UPS guy drives up, and he is at a dead run to give him what fore. The driver one time started to reach the back of his hand to let him get a whiff. Barbara yelled “don’t do that!”. At the UPS guy. Drago was crouched back on his haunches ready to leap. To his credit the driver could see that just because he was not barking, did not mean he was ready to become friends. Drago understands his job. Protect the homestead. I have 2 acres fenced in, and even though he can leap to get his 2 front paws and go over the rail fence. He doesn’t. He knows it his yard, and he defends it vigorously. He has only has 2 speeds a run, and flat out. I do not know how much of this little diatribe’s you want to use, but I could go on for hours about Drago. Definitely the “Ramrod of this outfit”.

“Paladin” Rios,

I love the movie McClintock. And the name Drago seems to fit your dog like a glove. What a wonderful companion you have there. Thanks for your contribution.



The tuxedo cat is Tiger, formerly a bookstore cat, now a cranky senior citizen.

The brown fuzzy cat is Hershey, a chocolate tabby Persian with defective ears. I got him two weeks ago. He’s about nine months old and thinks his name is “Ohmygod! No-o-o!!!” It’s been so long since I’ve had one, I’ve forgotten how rambunctious a young, healthy cat can be.

Captain Josepha Sabin

Thanks for the photo of 2 cats together. So you can herd them? Your name for the kitteh isn't bad. I once had a puppy named Dammit!!!! We appreciate your contribution today.



Long Time Lurker here. Love this thread and all the morons who take part. This is Gabriele or Gabby for short. She’s a “shorkipoo” for all you purists. She’s also fearless and protective and doesn’t realize that she’s 12pounds. I’d take a bullet for this dog! Love this site and this pet thread. God bless you and the USA!

Looks like Gabby is one little fluff bucket. Fearless, protective and fluffy. What a combination!!! Thank you for sharing this afternoon.


Been quiet on the Pet Thread sonce Splotchy passed. MegaRoy doesn't really snuggle, he's more of an ambush predator. 17lbs of Maine Coon cat, ambushing me in the dark. Eventually, I'll get his ass on camera and post that. Probably get a girly squee when he 'gets' me in the bargan. Put my game camera in the side yard to see what I could see. Got 120 videos over the next week. Mostly squirrels and chipmonks. One monster of a groundhog, neighbor kitty, several racoons. And these cat killers here. Three coyotes moving through. Now I need to figure out how to trap the bastards. Link goes to Rumble, because eff Google and EweToob. https://rumble.com/vbgw0l-coyotes-in-the-side-yard.html Here's a Tiny URL if you prefer that. https://tinyurl.com/y3x6hhuf BifBewalski

Looks like you need some hounds and a .223. Good luck getting rid of those predators.

Elvis is my 10-month old Blue-Eyed Bernese Mtn Dog - In my town of Parker Co he was just voted "top dog" so we're kinda nuts about him..
Been a daily reader since this site started. Loooonnnnng time.. - John

Well, it was hard to select a photo, there were so many John. Quite the pooch you have there. Thanks for being a long time supporter of the site. And thank you for sharing Elvis with us.
