licks and sniffs Sasha
p.s. can you send treats, I think grounded means no treats, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Sasha really scared me when she ran off and especially when I found her in the road. I know better then to ever let her out there without a leash again, but in the past she has been very good and stayed with me on our deck. Lesson learned and don't worry she is still getting plenty of treats.

Tylenol is extremely toxic in cats, and can be toxic to dogs as well. Cats are more frequently affected because they lack an enzyme pathway that functions to metabolize the drug properly. As little as ½ tablet of Tylenol can be fatal in cats, and although a higher dose is usually required to be toxic to dogs, many can get severely ill with a low dose. Tylenol causes damage to the liver as well as to the blood cells in both species, and clinical signs can include depression, rapid breathing, dark colored gums, swelling of the face, paws, and limbs, vomiting, drooling and death.
The safest way to avoid potential fatal reactions from Tylenol is to NEVER give it to your pet, even in very small amounts. Keep all bottles of Tylenol or other acetaminophen containing products in a securely closed cupboard or medicine cabinet to avoid spillage. If you think your pet is in pain, contact your veterinarian before giving any pain medications at home. It could save your pets life! "

I am feeling a little dazed here after my Vet Lady ordeal, but even still I agreed to pose for a photo. Well Mommy was holding a piece of cheese out, so that was my focal point.

I am trying to gather enough strength to play with my favorite squeaky hot dog.
Ok, back home. I need to go in and check on Mommy. I can't stand to be away from her for very long. She needs me.
Thank you for all of your good wishes, I love you my pals.

Sasha has been a little under the weather since she got back from the Vet. She did get 2 shots and she has a little infection in the pads of her feet where some hair was matted. She is very quiet, but she is eating and drinking. I am hoping she will be back to normal tomorrow or I will call the Vet back. Please have some good thoughts for her. Thanks Anne

The lifespan of a squirrel is about nine years.Sharks and rays are the only animals known to man that don't get cancer. Scientists believe this has something to do with the fact that they don't have bones, but cartilage.
A group of twelve or more cows is called a flink.You can tell the sex of a horse by its teeth. Most males have 40, females have 36.
Cats sleep up to eighteen hours a day, but never quite as deep as humans. Instead, they fall asleep quickly and wake up intermittently to check to see if their environment is still safe.
There are more than fifty different kinds of kangaroos
Skunks can accurately spray their smelly fluid as far as ten feet
The pet food company Ralston Purina recently introduced, from its subsidiary Purina Philippines, power chicken feed designed to help roosters build muscles for cockfighting, which is popular in many areas of the world.http://www.faqs.org/abstracts/Business-international/Purina-takes-on-United-Laboratories-to-pump-up-Manilas-battling-birds.html#ixzz0VyNgK3W4
Guinea pigs and rabbits can't sweat.
Cats often rub up against people and furniture to lay their scent and mark their territory. They do it this way, as opposed to the way dogs do it, because they have scent glands in their facesSo to sum it all up. We can outlive squirrels and see better than our peoples, but we can't drive since we don't do the color thing so well. If you have to work out do it with a rabbit or guinea pig and don't tiptoe past a sleeping cat cause they might wake up and rub their faces all over you. It is best to say away from a flink of cows(too big to play with) and skunks in general and I don't think I want to get close enough to a horse to count its teeth. It would be nice if they could figure out why sharks don't get cancer and there a lot of kangaroos out there. But the most important thing of all is DON'T BUY PURINA DOG FOOD, nobody should be encouraging cockfighting I don't care where you live! I hope you can impress your pals with this trivia Wednesday.
licks and sniffs, Sasha
