    Heck - I want every cat that showes up on our property! But my husband says I can't save them all - and feeding them, sterilizing them, and providing shelter outside is all we can do. Heather V. Havel

    Bush says to get ready for war

    Let me dig my class notes up (I took American Foreign Policy) - I believe we got rid of a government in Iraq and then put someone else in. I'll find out exacts... I don't believe what they did was right - just that we (Americans) should take a more active role in government to make sure such...

    Crate training! Dawn has it 100%! I foster animals until they get adopted out and always crate train! Dogs / puppies do not like to go to the bathroom where they sleep and eat. They will whine when they need to go out - actually they usually whine when they don't need to go out, but a water...

    cat going to shelter in 3 days please help!

    First thing you must do is confine the felines - if they aren't getting along prob. separated would be best. Then you have to give your home the cleaning of a lifetime! Make sure you use an enzyme cleaner and a black light (it helps find spots you may have missed). I also suggest taking them...

    my kitten goes to the bathroom EVERYWHERE!
