Meet Gridley — a Tabby formerly from Danville, CA, and now a resident of San Francisco! He enjoys watching "Cat TV" from one of three main windows. He loves his cat tree, small mouse-shaped toys and hiding from the noise of the heater. Gridley was named for a city in California, but I have nicknamed him Linus because he sucks on his baby blanket.
I could really use some advice. We recently moved to a house with a big piece of property. When we moved in, we knew there was a dog next door but never really saw it (only heard him bark a few times). There is a wood privacy fence between our yard and our neighbour's (with the dog). I don't usually let me dogs hang out outside for any great length of time . . . usually enough to pee and play, unless I am with them.
Well, I came home from work one day and let the girls out to pee and I heard something slam into the fence growling, barking . . . wanting to eat my dogs. I have never in my life seen such aggression. I have watched him slam head first into the fence, growling and barking. My one dog (who is half his size) ran to the fence and barked back. Long story short, I have done pretty good at keeping my dogs in while "the beast" is outside. But we run into a problem when I get off of work . . . the neighbour gets home at the same time. I find myself racing home to get there before they do.
Before I get the guts to ask her if we can work out a schedule, does anyone else have any ideas?? If my dogs would ignore him and continue to do their business, it wouldn't be 'as' big of an issue . . . but they stop everything and bark back. I have to call them into the house and wait until he goes in. Meanwhile they have been crossing their paws for 9 hours!

I don't know about you, but watching that slow loris with his umbrella has left me with these tiny creatures on the brain! These two twinsies — born last year at Moody Gardens (a nature reserve in Galveston, TX) — look anything but moody with those big eyes and curious faces. It's time to learn more about these primates and see more pictures in the process when you start this slideshow.
Mom did not interpret my chomping that way at all. "Miles," she gasped. "That is NOT FOR YOU." She then tried to take away my gift, but I smacked my paw down on it and pulled it closer to me. Some people are so greedy!
