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!"...
Oy! [smacking my lips] I just wuv puddies! Oy!

Here is my 2 kids together, Jack and Bobie. They are alot of fun.
Here are my boys.
The red one is Indy, and the more pale one is Merlin.
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
I just wuv my kids! [sniff]
to post Hand in the Positive Vibes topic. As far as I'm concerned, "folks in need" is not species specific. If you love 'em, you love 'em.
Im in West Palm Beach Florida. I work with small animals, and fortunately my husband is a large animal vet. Thanks for your concern, it means alot to me.....
