What Should I Do With My Wandering Cat?

I hope you love cats. I guess a lot of people do, considering how many people own them. A lot of people love cute cat videos and kittens doing sickeningly sweet things like falling down when they are learning how to jump. I am not one of those people. I'm not heartless, okay? I just don't love cats....more

How To Tell If Your Cat is a Jerk

This post was originally posted on My Year in the Making on February 20th 2015Happy Friday everyone! For once I’m actually writing a post right before I publish it, which makes me feel excited and uneasy all at once (yes, Virginia, this is what my life has become.)

Using Prong Collars Incorrectly Is Dog Abuse!

Yesterday, while driving to meet up with some friends for dinner, I noticed a woman walking a black dog who was probably about 50 pounds with a prong collar on. Now, I will say flat out that I am not against prong collars. When used by someone who knows what they are doing and doesn't use too much force, prong collars are an excellent training tool, especially when working with a large dog and a little person. However, this woman was definitely NOT using the prong collar correct. How do I know just by the split second I saw them? The woman was also using a flexi-leash....more
