Oh yeah - I almost forgot to include this, in the midst of my ranting.

Little man loves the potty chair. Got a great pic of him sitting on it watching TV. Told him he was living every man's dream.

He really seems to be getting the idea - he hasn't used it yet, but he says "Potty - go pee" and tries to take his diaper off!!

Why do people get pets and then just ditch them when they decide they aren't so cute anymore? I mean - I know that sometimes circumstances change and things happen that are out of your control - but how many times has someone you know gotten a cat or dog because it was "cute"? Only to realize that they don't have time for it, can't (or won't) take care of it, or just because it grew up???

Yesterday Brendan found a kitten in our garage. Mind you, we do not have a cat - ours died in May, and it was male anyhow - so where it came from - who knows?? Ray asked the neighbors - not theirs.... Unfortunately, people often drop off animals out here - I remember several instances when I was growing up. I couldn't understand how someone could do that then, and I don't understand it now.

On that note - why the **** can't people get their pets spayed / neutered????
I am a firm believer in that, as well as adopting rescue dogs. :) Both of my dogs were rescue, as well as my cat, and I love 'em all. Plus - they were ALL altered. I really get sick everytime I see a puppy / kitten that is lost / dumped / homeless because people don't get their pets fixed. The thing that REALLY bothers me is that in many many places, if you can't afford it, there are programs / donations that can help you!!

Anyhow - people - as Bob Barker says everyday at the end of his show - "Help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered." (Okay, I'm not sure that those are his *exact* words, but you get the drift.)

If you know anyone that may be looking to adopt a kitten, the one we found is a cutie. Friendly, cuddly, not scared of little Brendan, and was even calm around the dogs. :) Or - if you don't know anyone, but you know of a rescue group - please let me know. Right now we are really not in the position to keep a cat. Finding a rental house is hard enough with what we've already got!!
