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

Would you like a treat?

Let's enjoy the world of animals and leave the world of politics outside today.

There are a lot of stories and videos right now about pet and livestock rescues related to the hurricane. Anybody have any inside information?

For those of us not in danger but in uncomfortable weather, perhaps we should do more for the comfort of our pets.

This is Sangria again. That scratching post is 3 feet tall. It looks like she thought about trying for the top of the TV. Fortunately she decided against it.


Good choice, Sangria.

Her is a picture of my girl Summit (she appeared on the pet thread a couple years ago) working on her rehab from ACL surgery. She is now just about 6 weeks out from surgery and doing well, still has to be on a lead outside and I keep her contained to the tv room in the house. But as you can see she loves doing the water treadmill at therapy!


That's a nice set-up for therapy. Hope her rehab goes well.

On Christmas Eve my brother texted me a photo of a little kitty he had found. By New Years Eve she was at our house to begin her life with us. We named her Eve but we call her Evie. She quickly earned the nickname "Evie the Terrorist" because she was not spayed and we couldn't get her into the vet to have that done for 6 long weeks. Once that happened she calmed down quite a bit and she is now the sweetest quietest little cat. She loves sitting by our basement sliding door walkout watching the bugs outside. Thanks for the pet thread!


Evie looks like a cat who knows her place in the world!

Photo 1: Daisy, the Belgian Malinois, runs like a rocket, and claws into our hearts. Also the lawn. But mostly our hearts. Adopted last May,
evidently dumped, about one year old then, and a fireball. Either
she's getting smarter every day, or, thanks to her, we are.

Photo 2: Cat is Merlin, Dog is Jarl ("yarl") the Malamute. They live with SonM.
Merlin arrived at our rural doorstep years ago, the skinniest, most
pitiful cat I'd ever seen. Survived, fattened up, and after some
shuffling around ended up with SonM. You can see the two critters
respect each other. Now. Jarl had to end up with a claw actually stuck
in his nose in an early encounter, but they worked it out.

What great companions!

Maxipus, Matilda and Coltrane. End of another hard day of kittenhood.



Do you think you might be working them too hard, Tom? Or are they self-motivated in all that kittenhood activity?

If you start feeling nostalgic, here a link to last week's Pet Thread, the Ace of Spades Pet Thread, September 24

I closed the comments on this post so you wouldn't get banned for commenting on a week-old post, but don't try it anyway.
