BELOVED MISSING CAT FOUND 2,000 MILES AWAY

cat2000mi-lgCheryl Walls of Anderson, South Carolina never thought she’d see her cat Kevin again after he went missing more than a year ago. She was shocked when she received a call from an animal shelter in California that Kevin had been found – 2,000 miles away!

According to KESQ-TV, a woman driving a U-Haul cross-country was stopped at the Arizona –California border for a routine food and agriculture inspection.

The inspector heard meowing and discovered a skinny cat making a ruckus in the back. The driver of the van was as surprised as the inspector was that a cat had secretly hitched a ride with her.

The friendly cat was taken to the Coachella Valley Animal Campus, where workers were able to trace him to Walls, thanks to his microchip. Shelter employee Emily Huffman has been caring for Kevin since he arrived.

Why babies have big eyes

I asked my son several years ago if he knew why babies have big eyes. “To keep their parents from killing them.” Not exactly the answer I had in mind, but not a wrong answer either. Adults are hard wired to be loving and protective toward creatures we perceive as cute, no matter how self-centered and demanding they are or how sleep deprived they make us. Cute is a round head, tiny nose, rosebud lips…

Hi Inderific. We agree that the graphic is shockin…

Hi Inderific. We agree that the graphic is shocking and almost unbelievable. Zillow currently has 480 homes in Oakland listed as foreclosure sale or auction as of today (April 20, 2015). You can Google that info from any city by pulling up 'Zillow + Foreclosures + Name/City'

What the 'blue dots' can't show you is the full number homes that are bank owned by not on the market right now. Banks have been forced to release just a portion of foreclosure homes at a time in order to control the market some (the pricing, actually)

Here's the link to the Oakland sales:

Jerky Problems AGAIN: an infographic

Are you kidding me? After years of pressure, people finally get pet stores to agree to stop carrying treats from China only to have a new crop of cases of illness emerge in pets who ate jerky with a “Made in the USA” label.

Is it sourcing? Is it weird contamination from aliens? Who cares! Just don’t buy it. It’s not worth the risk. Feed your pet an apple, or some of their regular food, or follow the link to where I show you how to make it yourself.

Or watch the video:
