Foster Reunions

By Kim Bromley and Susie Harper If you’ve fostered a pet - especially kittens and puppies - you’ve heard this question: “How can you give them back? I could never do it.” And it’s true, fostering isn’t for everyone. We’ve written about fostering before in this blog: the joys and challenges, senior partners and the fun of seeing your fosters in their new homes. What we haven’t focused on solely is reunions. Herewith, one of the many pleasures of fostering: seeing once again and even spending time with foster pets post adoption. Susie Harper, long time [...]

That’s a Dog!

By Kecia Talbot It was my first thought when I saw her on the side of the road, and I immediately pulled over and stopped. She was in an odd place – two inches from the solid white line along the shoulder of northbound I-5 about a half-hour south of Bakersfield. She was lying upright with her front paws crossed, seemingly waiting to die. I don’t remember how, but I got her in the car and went looking for a veterinarian in Bakersfield. This was 24 years ago, before smartphones, and I located a pay phone with a Yellow [...]

Cat Whispering

From the hall, passersby can’t see the young cats that are tucked deep into their safe-place cubbies as I try to assure them I come in peace and with tasty Churu treats. Some of the [...]

Watching the sheeting rain from the comfort of the front porch. I live in Northern California where currently we are being deluged by what is known as an atmospheric river. That is a poetic way to say it’s raining cats and dogs, which is an old school way to say there is a brick ton of water, hail and snow falling out of the sky.

Why aren't we walking?! Time was, it never rained in Northern California in August. Mostly, that is. Sure, the occasional sprinkle in summer, but as a routine, it “never happened.” Last week, as I anticipated the arrival of our friend, Bob, for our weekly morning walk I was executing the morning routine of preparing for our walk in a more than usually sporadic manner, putting leashes and harnesses on earlier than necessary and then wandering around the house in a daze doing weird little chores, biding time until the designated hour of 8:30 when [...]
