"My alone feels so good. I’ll only have you if you’re sweeter than my solitude."
Let me take a minute to tell you about little Stubby. <3
His mom is stray, who showed up at my house and had 6 kittens. All of them are adorable, most of them are really really fluffy. All of them are “normal” sized kittens… then there’s Stubby, the little runt. All the other kittens are mean to Stubby, and hog all the food. The mom didn’t really take good care of her kittens, and always runs away and leaves them for long periods of time. But they are finally weened and eating kitten food. Stubby is TINY… he is literally the smallest kitten I’ve ever seen. It was really easy for the other kittens to push him aside, and not let him get any food. It’s almost like he knew he wasn’t big enough to fight back, so he would just walk away and sit by himself, waiting for his turn, which never comes. My boyfriend felt sorry for him, so he brought him in the house so he could eat in peace.
Very quickly we became attached to him. It is really unusual for Tyler, because he’s not much of a cat person, but he is actually claiming him as “his” kitten. lol. But needless to say, Stubby is going to be staying in our lives for a very long time! (:
He is so silly looking, with his big ole eyes, and fat little tummy (cause he’s actually getting food now heh). I’m not sure if he’s all there mentally, he just sits and stares at nothing with a distant look in his eyes, and pretty much always looks emotionless. There is just something about him that’s not quite right, but he’s perfect to me. He seems to be healthy, just super small. He loves attention and being loved on, he purrs super loud. Gosh I love him so much! <3
So cute. So happy that he found you!!
FAMILY USES OLD BLANKET TO ATTRACT THEIR LOST DOG - “A week went by and we got a call from the campground host who was able to coax her into a kennel after she had been sleeping every night on the blanket and clothing that was left behind.”
Murphy, a Golden Retriever, became lost two years ago when she wandered away from a campsite in Tahoe National Forest located in California. The Braun family searched for Murphy and even set up a Facebook page, but Murphy was not found. Recently, Murphy was spotted by someone in the campsite area so the Brauns left Murphy’s old blanket and clothes at the site to attract her. Murphy must have been attracted by the smell because she was discovered sleeping on the blanket. Read more from Erin Braun’s Facebook page:
After 20 long months of being in the Tahoe National Forest, Murphy has come home. As you can imagine we are completely shocked and amazed with the miracle of her surviving this long. We responded to a call from a couple who spotted a dog matching her description in an area within 5 miles of where we lost her. After multiple days looking for her without success, we left her bed and our clothing behind with the campground host, in the hopes that she would respond. A week went by and we got a call from the campground host who was able to coax her into a kennel after she had been sleeping every night on the blanket and clothing that was left behind. We were reunited with Murphy, on Sunday afternoon - Father’s Day! She is on the road to recovery, very thin and frail but happy to be home with her family.
Murphy never forgot the smell of home. It’s great to see her back with her family. Click here for more information. (Photos from Murphy’s Facebook page)
"I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt."
