omg they are so offended if you lick them back.
Fun fact! Dogs lick the mouths of those they consider higher in rank! So if you lick them back, they are not offended, they just don’t see themselves as higher than you and they are confused! The second dog must be a very loyal dog because he or she literally refuses to be licked back haha! I love dogs.
i started reading that expecting an angry rant and it turned out to be one of the nicest things ever.
I have reblogged this like ten times
My cat grooms me. What does that mean?
It means your cat thinks your style is wack and is trying to help
dumbfounded a murder of crows isn’t on here.
my english told me that a group of unicorns is called a blessing and thats the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard
By the way, I have coined the term ‘an adhesion of geckos’. Please spread the word.
A group of villains is called “a brunch” if they aren’t at each other’s throat, and “a damn mess” if they are.
Overnight I had her on rotating sealed bags of ice. Double bag, my friends, double bag. I learned that the hard way and poor Meow got a little wet on her dead butt. Late night hair dryer + cat in rigor mortis is the comic scene of the century, tell you what. Cue Yakety Sax.
Caitlin runs YouTube channel Order of the Good Death. She is a mortician who is passionate about approaching death positively, cognizant of its natural place in all life.
This is her lovely post about at-home pet euthanasia, a kitty wake, and the burial of her friend, The Meow.
Having recently done some serious thinking about my cats’ end of life plans, this post seemed like a particularly sweet balm. Loss is always hard, but facing it with courage, honesty, and love can help death be non-traumatic and even healing.
"Take a close look at these ingredients. Ground corn (lots of it), toxic dyes, bones, beaks and feathers, more corn, wheat and rice flour, potato starch, unidentified meat and bone meal, Propylene Glycol (defined by dictionary.com as, “A colorless, viscous, hygroscopic liquid … used chiefly as a lubricant, as an antifreeze, as a heat transfer fluid, and as a solvent…”), and a vitamin premix almost guaranteed to be sourced from China”
"This wouldn’t even be a healthy diet for you and me to eat, and we’re omnivores built to digest a wide variety of nutrient sources."
"Now just imagine how profoundly unhealthy this has to be for a carnivore whose digestive physiology is uniquely, beautifully designed for one thing – the exclusive consumption of other animal meats, bones and organs. Imagine how these pets feel, living on a diet their bodies aren’t meant to process, day in and day out, year after year.”
"What? It’s just a big dog.
Cats just give no fucks like ever lol
Growing up, we worried about our cats getting eaten by coyotes. I am certain this happened to a couple farm cats.
But I love the gumption of so many cats — often, tabbies and calicos — whose security lies in their knowledge that THEY HAVE CLAWS and THEY KNOW HOW TO USE THEM.
Today is my brother’s birthday.
He is officially 20.
Mimi is adopted. Twenty years ago, he was picked up from a box of free kittens outside Walmart.
He was one of a litter of five. At the time, he was only three weeks old. We fed him with a dropper until he was weaned.
He’s been with us ever since.
We go many places together.
We have many adventures. Here he is crossing a creek.
We are shopping for frozen foods.
Mimi has been through a lot. He’s a little survivor.
Due to his age, he has some health problems… but we still enjoy every day together. From now on, Mimi is going on 21.
This looks like one of the world’s best cats.
