Even better is the site which lists and has photos of replacement testicles for your cat or dog or other beloved pet that might be at risk of feeling inadequate without the appearance of having the appropriate equipment. My Bruno cat keeps nagging me to get him some.

I listened to a piece on the radio today about tranquilizers and other meds for dogs that suffer separation anxiety when masters leave them home all day because they go to work.

Apparently their is no end to the creative juices of charlatans wanting to fleece all people with excess money...and no shortage of willing dupes who will gleefully oblige them.

Reminds me of the Saturday Night Live skit about 'Doggy Downers' and 'Puppy Uppers'.

My aunt once took her dog to a "dog psychiatrist" to help it get over being mauled by another dog.

BTW, if one doesn't want one's dog to get lonely while one is off at work, just leave the TV or radio on.

Heavy sigh! As soon as the vets (and not just them! they love pets, too!) knew both (a) that human surgical techniques and meds help your pets, and (b) we are willing to pay for that ... What can you do???

My little Lhasa had knee surgery to remove a bone spur under her kneecap (you gotta imagine how small, very small, that is) when I noticed she was walking three-legged limpy and it pained ME... and the surgery worked!!!

Well ... when she finally left, I have my two kitties now. Me, the fool, them, the stars!

- the Miss Ashley, you gotta luv black cats ... pu-leez!

Well Tuzilla . . . I actually did have one cat on an anti-anxiety drug to stop him from spraying. He had been beaten most of his life, and I was trying to give him a good last couple of years, but you know how cat spray is. Much worse than skunk. And I had another cat on the same thing because whenever I was away for a few days her fur would start to fall out. So when I went to China for three weeks, I made sure she was taking her meds. It may have helped--only half her fur fell out.

These days my cats just get talk therapy. I talk to them and they appear to ignore me. But they do lie on the couch until I'm finished and usually for a few hours after that, so who knows? They must think it helps.

Okay, as long as we're in the kitty cat confessional (or k-9), my 22 lb."kitten" has to have classical music on, in the bedroom, for his enjoyment. Classical station went off the air, so we subscribed to XM for him and he has a choice of 2 classical stations, plus opera, which he hates. Oh yeah, last year we had to leave them for a few days in the summer and we left the air on....we don't even put it on for ourselves.

Women and cats will do what they want, and men and dogs will just have to get used to it.

Actually Sheri, I have a 125# dog and HE says that cats will NOT do what they want around here. As far as women go, he loves 'em like I do but will honor them with the traditional Labrador hello. I have not personally done that yet.
Have a beautiful day!

I have heard the word and have risen to a new calling.

I am now a fully-functional Psychic Pet Healer.

Inscribe the pet's issue on a kleenex-size cloth and rub the head of the afflicted animal. Wrap a $25 or larger donation in the cloth, put it in an envelope and mail to me. I will use my abilities to heal said animal.

another product is for a dog who likes to eat his own poop. you put it in his food and the claim is it makes his poop taste bad, so he won't eat it anymore. i am not making this up

Do you have a license for this Psychic Healing?

Something to make poop taste bad? LOL - like it doesn't start out that way?

I kinda figured a dog that eats his own poop would be pretty awesome!

Yeah, Lodi. It'd be like a self-cleaning oven -- a self-scooping pooper.

Here's another real fun idea in poop technology:

Oh, and for the fake dog testicles:

ahhhh, the stuff we do for our animals...remember when the most ridiculous thing that people did was to knit little sweaters for them? Now, I pay a small king's ransom for daycare expenses and nutritious "after-school" snacks!

Okay, I am now going to throw up.

But first let me say this: Tuz, you can make a LOT of money as a pet psychic because people are desperate to communicate with their pets who are unhappy or who have died. I always wondered though--since animals don't know human spoken language, they can't think in words. Just how do animal communicators receive such precise communications? If they do, they're faking! To be credible you have to be vague, nonspecific, and make no mention of human rituals that have no meaning for animals. Don't say "Fluffy doesn't like it when you go to work," or "Fluffy thinks of Fifi as The Dragon Lady." Because Fluffy doesn't know about work or the term Dragon Lady.

Just a little advice to get you started in your new career!

My ex-mother-in-law emailed me asking how to convert her cat into a vegan so he will be able to "get" healthy. Hmmmmm...

My son is vegan and so are his cats and dogs are vegan. I bet the food is expensive!

My Airedale Terrier loves carrots, apples, and (as a special treat, of course) the occasional snack out of the litter box.

I'm a dog person, myself.... Never been fond of cats. Probably because I've never found the right marinade.....

Love it Texlewee........
Someone once told me that my dogs eat poop because there's something missing in their diets. I wish "they" would tell me what it is because I hate poopy breath !!!!!

I've been to meat markets abroad where I found kittens AND puppies for sale by the bagful at the meat markets. I'm sure there are plenty of good marinades and cooking tips available online.

My understanding is that dog is dinner in some countries, much as chicken is for us. My thought to that - YUCK! But then, that is just MY thought.

I've heard vets say that dogs just like cat poop - it's a treat, although it's not a good idea for them to eat it.

I don't think there is anything lacking in his diet - he's VERY healthy, and so very much loved!!
