As are most white cats. I am so sorry, optimist. You've done what you can. What about posting on social media? As Cheri said, our pets need our love, not chains.

Because, in a sense, it is not my business. I do not believe in interfering with other people's decisions. They are adults (a married couple) and need to learn to do things for themselves. I know they are very immature people because of the dog thing, and honestly, they have not even thanked us (entitled millinials) but really, I am not going to be their mother.

This was heartbreaking to read this. I can't fathom animal abuse of any kind. If I were there I'd take her, come back to Vermont and give her to a rescue. I know of a dog currently that is being abused on a daily basis, and I want to somehow steal it away to safety...

I totally understand. I am at the end of my pet-owning days. In 2 years I will be 60. I do not want any more animals. I really do not want any. And, legally, if they are the legal owners, they need to do something. As far As I can see, the dog has good housing (thanks to me,) water, and well, not a lot of human love, but legally animals are property and you need to give them shelter and food and some legal vetting that is it. It is a puppy and whines a lot, but most puppies do when they are left outside.

I will be 60 tomorrow. And I hear you about no more animals, although I have two dogs, which are both rescues. I say no more animals now but I have a feeling when Obie and Loki pass I will feel the need to have another dog...

I am trying to become more able to leave the house on trips of over a few days without having to A, take dogs with me or B, get a pet-sitter. I do not feel particularly guilty about leaving a cat alone for a week (with plenty of food, water and litter box of course), but not a dog.

My 1st dog died this month, and although I loved him, I have this "one down, one to go" type thought going through my head. No, no more dogs.

Oh, I was a cat person all my life. When I was 46 or 47 I agreed to take a chihuahua puppy who was being "gotten rid of" (they did not care, just as long is it was out of their lives). That was my first dog. The next dog, I got to "keep him company" because I was really not a dog person, and thought a dog would be a better companion for him (that is my second dog). So all in all, I was kind of roped into the first one because I felt sorry for him. I think they have lived a good life, but I really have less emotional attachment to them than you might think. I like cats on the other hand-- but not too many cats. One is fine. I guess I am not a "pet" person. I tried and tried, but I can never be one of these people who has 5 dogs, 8 cats, 3 hamsters 11 chickens, 4 goats, 2 donkeys and an emu etcetera. I know many people do, and I like petting zoos, but not in my house.

I need some advice regarding dog cage, what kind of dog cage will I need for my 5-year -old St. Bernard? I need to put him outside the house because there is no more space inside. I'm looking for other options like having this large dog cage which has a size of 54" L x 35" W x 45" H. What do you think of this cage?
