Some beagles that lived their entire lives in lab cages taste freedom for the first time.

Have a tissue handy.

Not the rat poison findings, but a reassuring email from the Mars company, whose brands weren't affected:

On March 16, Menu Foods, a manufacturer of pet foods, announced that it was recalling millions of cans and foil pouches of wet dog and cat food.

This recent nationwide pet food recall does not include any Mars Petcare US pet food products. of our brands, including PEDIGREE® food for dogs, CESAR® canine cuisine, THE GOODLIFE RECIPE™ food for cats and dogs, WHISKAS® and SHEBA® food for cats, are safe for pets to enjoy.


I received the email today. I confess to feeling relieved, because Pedigree was the last soft food my guys got. Granted, it was weeks ago, and I would have seen any ill effects by now, but still...

...Mickey apparently doesn't care for Mozart. I've been getting the hairy eyeball here in home office land for the last few minutes.

Now he just got up and left.

I think he may be more a Handel dog, or something...

Conversation #1: Nominal Mistress: "Mickey, what have you done to your feet! You've licked the pads raw! Must be those allergies again." ::scrabbles beneath bathroom sink:: "I'm going to wash your feet and bandage them, and I want you to leave those bandages alone, ok?"

Nominal Mickey: ::my feet--mine--no--leave 'em--wrap--stuff-smelly--cold--itchy--can't walk with this stuff around my feet--nobody loves me and there's never enough food:: (stares at bandages)(sniffs bandages)(leaves bandages alone)(curls up in hallway and looks pathetic)

Conversation #2: Nominal Mistress: "King--you've licked off the hair on your foreleg again--look at that sore! I'm going to clean it and bandage it so you can't lick off the ointment." ::scrabbles beneath bathroom sink:: "First I'm going to stick on this pad with antibiotic ointment, then I'm going to wrap--hey--King--!"

Nominal King: ::YA THINK!:: (pulls at bandage while NM wraps leg)::WHAT IS THIS SHIT!:: (limps around living room while pulling at end of bandage)::GET THIS THING OFFA ME!::

NM: "Fine. No bandages."" ::gets spray bottle from top of cabinet:: "I'm going to spray it with Bitter Apple so you don't lick it."

NK: :: whatEVER:: (walks around kitchen) ::myleg::

Received permission from the artist who illustrated Incident to use the illo as an LJ icon and show the artwork. The artist's name is Lee Kuruganti. Some of her work can be viewed here. Of those illustrations, I think Ghost Sea (page 2) is my favorite. The cover of Staticmovement VI (same page) is pretty neat, as well.

A larger version of the Incident illo is behind the cut.

One more day of long weekend to go. Could use a month.

If you're interested in helping a good cause and possibly winning $$, [livejournal.com profile] celticfeministw is offering raffle tickets here, all proceeds supporting the no-kill shelter where she volunteers.

Go. Look at the photos. All those little faces.

They all love you.

Leo is offering you his paw.

Do my daily clicky on the Animal Rescue Site. See the sidebar about Gracie, the pit bull that was thrown from a rooftop. Since I can tell from the photo that she lived, go to the webpage to read about Gracie. Even better, watch Gracie's video (if that link doesn't work, there's one on the right side of Gracie's page).

Damned fool.
