Admin: I have 5 cats as it is, no more. Put a ad in your local craigslist or put all the cats in a crate and drop off at a no kill shelter at 4am. Aug 30, 2015 17:01:31 GMT
jamesw: Like in the Crosby Stills Nash and Young song, we have 'two cats in the yard'. Really! They're buried in our back wood lot under a lovely tree, near a bench. No more cats for us I'm afraid. My head cleared wonderfully once the little darlings were gone. Aug 31, 2015 3:16:35 GMT
jamesw: The dog is hypo-allergenic. Aug 31, 2015 3:17:37 GMT *
