well, my old lady came w/a cat, so that was the start-i'm allergic, so the 1st 4 yrs we terrorized each other, the next 4 we tolerated each other, & this year he likes me better than her cause i'll pet him w/my foot-since the SO works in wildlife rehab, we've also acquired a turtle w/a crooked spine, another turtle that bites everybody (no one else would take him), a bird that won't fly, & 2 white & tan rats-i'm a dog lover personally, & even though i traveled w/9 humans & 6 animals in 1 van, our trailer's too small for the rott/pit mix i'd love to have-once we can move to the country, i'm sure we'll have a zoo full
Thanks to all that send good well wishes for my horse. Just an update, he is doing well and is comfortable. He has made it now 2 months, which is incredible considering the situation. He is a remarkably strong willed animal with the desire and spirit to live. He is teaching me alot about keeping a positive outlook. He has been through four surgeries and is still kind and loving. Thanks to all for your good thoughts. It means alot to me. ....
Vivi, our divorce was amicable. We decided that since the "kids" grew up in this house (I kept the house), they should stay here. She gets them about one week a month, or so. Even so, she always complains about how I take care of them.... "You don't brush them enough!"... You don't clean out the litter boxes enough!"... You don't clean out their bowls enough!"... nag, nag, nag... (I need a rolling eyes emoticon about here!)
Ed, when I was getting divorced from my starter husband, everything went smoothly until it came to our cat... (we were DINK's -double income no kids). We almost had a huge custody battle over it, and our friends just couldn't understand...
I am impressed you & your ex managed to figure out a custody agreement.
I tip my hat to you-
I hope Hand heals well and quickly... Please give him a carrot and a scratch from his extended family here- (big carrot from me)-
...And yes shes been a good girl.... Black lab was only 8mo at the time we got her almost 3 years ago. Was real tame for a month but "snapped" at the park and started going after kids and other dogs... My son was only a few mo old at the time so we had to give her to a household w/o kids...
I have a B/W Tuxedo cat named Draq (drack) who will be 12yo on the 9th. Named after the Braum Stroker (spell?) version of the movie Dracula that came out around the time of his birth. He used to bite on my earlobes whilst I sat on the couch... He now is a mellow 'ol man' that loves a good lap but isnt found of my 1 & 3 yo kids..lol... "stop pulling that cats tail guys!"...

Here is my 2 kids together, Jack and Bobie. They are alot of fun.

Currently, they're visiting their mom, (we're divorced) who has shared custody. We have no kids, so that's as close as it gets! :-D
