nope. his family lost their house and are staying with inlaws in toledo. someone in that house is allergic or something so poor justice has been being borded for the past 3 months.they have a new job and a place to go in columbus, a fried has some rental place out there but its rented right now and the lease isnt up till december. so to save justice another month of kennel time hes gonna stay with us.if you know boxers you know they dont do well in long term kennel environments. a month or so at the most, but they start going down hill almost right away.theyre very social dogs. justice even has a cat friend here already. nakai, a 15 year old black cat curled up with him an hour after he got here.

Flutemaker sorry your friends have to go through so much, but at least they don't have to worry about Justice now. Glad he has a new friend, too. I hate seeing dogs stuck in kennels for long term.

What I didn't mention in the post about Sparky is that the woman who had him,has major substance abuse problems and an evil poodle named Max. (I've got no use for her-in fact, called the cops on her last 4th of July for shooting fireworks off in the woods after they were banned because of the extreme high fire danger due to drought.)When Sparky showed up "for good" at our house, this little 7 pound dog had a choke collar on that would have fit a 30lb. pit bull.

Cat treats are the one thing that gets Mafalda to shove her much larger sister aside. Don't come between her and her treats!

The problem is the one brand and flavor is not carried by any local stores. I have had to resort to ordering them online. My cat is now signed up for twice yearly delivery of a case of treats.

Bucky on the other hand has the treats are good attitude. Any treats. Or any food. His first thanksgiving he tried a smash a grab raid on the dining room table. He ended up trying to jump off the table with a drumstick.

Neither of mine are picky. They are about the most unfinicky cats I've ever had. There are flavors they like better than others, but just about any kind/brand of canned food is okay. Same with kibble. They'll eat any kind I buy. They're picky about texture, though. Canned food has to be loaf, minced, or maybe shreds. If it has chunks, they won't eat it!

Although they want the right of first refusal, they don't approve of people food at all. Two exceptions. They love bacon. And Mafalda likes lettuce and sprouts. They'll steal both off the table if ya don't pay attention!

Mouse-a-roni and cheese!

I got the same issue. Bought Eagle Pack wet and holistic wet. The critters turned their nose up at it. Bought Friskies wet from Target and they went crazy over it. Now they're on Friskies Indoor Selects. There is always Eagle Pack and Halo dry mixed together available.

P.S. I carry Marrow Bone on both sizes for my customers. The people don't get treats.

Ok, JD, I have to ask. What in the world do you do that you carry Marrow Bone? Inquiring minds want to know.
We used to have a Siamese that was a picky eater. All she would eat was Purina Cat Chow and Purina cat tuna. Offer her anything else and she would look at you like you were trying to poison her.
I would love to hear the mouse a roni story.

Just saw this and thought it was appropriate for this thread.

Marrow Bone and Marrow Bone minis! LOL

People can be easily directed. Animals are a little different. They sense you. I use the the treats to let the animal know I'm not there to hurt them. 75% of the time, I'll be on my knees giving them a treat.

Animals won't hurt you like people will.

So that still doesn't tell me what you do. I would guess a vet, or maybe some sort of animal control.
I understand animals "sensing" you. I've only met a couple in my life that scared me and that wasn't the animal's fault-it was the way they were raised. I used to freak my Grandfather out because I was the only other person besides him who could sit in his yard while the deer fed and not spook them. They would come up within a couple of feet of where I was sitting and just graze away. He said it was because I could make my mind quiet and they would pick up on the calm.

Mouse-a-roni and cheese:

Between grad school and my post doc, I stayed with a friend and her sister. She had several cats. Now, she has never gone out and selected a cat, they have all just come to her. While I was living there a solid black polydactyl female, with two cats worth of tail and a pink rhinestone studded collar (and we would learn a newly conceived, six kitten litter in utero), moved in.

We were never quite sure when she arrived. One night while we were watching TV she came slinking out from under the bed in my room and literally slithered along the baseboards to the cat food dishes. When we (and the other cats) didn't run her off while she ate her fill, she decided she was welcome. And announced this by promptly trying out every lap in the room.

Over the next few weeks, we learned the next door neighbors had found her wandering an apartment complex up in Albq. And when she whined endlessly because she was in heat they got frustrated and tossed her over the fence into our yard, for "the weird cat ladies to take care of." She gave every indication of being someone's pampered princess. And we could never get the neighbors to tell us which apartments so we could try to find her owner.

Willow, as she was ultimately named, was a kind of odd cat. She won't go outside -- at all. If she even got too near an open window or the cat door she acted frightened. She clearly had never been outside before the day of her kidnapping. But she was now living with a three cat cadre of feline hunters, who just loved to bring their wounded prey home to show off. And she was just fascinated by their "kills". She finally got brave enough to sit under cover of chair on the porch and watch the on-going decimation of the local vermin. One day it finally got to be too much for Willow, she charged off the porch and into neighbor's chile field. An hour later, during dinner, she came running back into the house with a squirming mouse in her mouth.

Now in my friend's house, getting living birds, snakes, lizards and rodents out of the mouths of cat and out of the house is a regular ballet. Upon seeing Willow and mouse, the cry of "we have a wiggler" went up. Everyone abandoned dinner. My friend's sister sprinted down the hall closing doors, to limit the range of places where Willow could have released her prey. My friend tried to persuade Willow to go outside. And I, as a newcomer to the cat kill dance, was supposed to stay out of the way. So, I just sat quietly in front of my plate of macaroni and cheese.

As far as Willow was concerned the fuss made the whole thing more exciting and she dropped the mouse to let out a yowl of triumph. Now the mouse, who had just spent some unknown period of time staring at cat tonsils, decided God had given it a second chance and it was getting out there. It ran. Amy grabbed a trash can and tried to scoop up the fleeing rodent. The other three cats materialized and moved in. But, Willow was not having any of this escaping and no one was taking her mouse. She gave it a mighty swat.

Up it went, ricochetting off the ceiling. Straight into my plate. In the three seconds of silence that followed the flight, you could literally see the cats thinking "Mouse-a-roni and Cheese. Yum!" Then Willow leapt onto the table across from me. Her next bound took her into the middle of my plate, where she snatched up the cheese sauce covered mouse. Her final leap took her over my shoulder and into the middle of the living room. While I sat there with pasta raining down on me, she took off down the hall toward the cat door, turning the corner so quickly she left two cheesy footprints eight inches up the wall.

Once outside, she retreated to roof. But her mouse, having rather rudely broken its neck during these escapades, is not quite as much fun. But she did not surrender her first kill. She carefully licked off the cheese sauce and stashed the corpse under the braces for the swamp cooler. Then she sat on the roof and meowed her victory to half the neighborhood.

Being New Mexico the mouse ultimately mummified. And everyday until fall, she made a visit to roof and pulled out her mouse jerky. We finally buried the thing when we winterized the swamp cooler.

What a hysterical story!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sitting here at work just laughing until I almost have tears running down my eyes.

We had a cat do something similar-only it's not as funny. My parents had been at the neighbors playing cards. they got home, dad headed to the back to get his jammies on, mom to the other door to let Pounce in. I was in the kitchen. All of a sudden, my mom is screaming hysterically. I couldn't understand what she was saying and here comes dad down the hall with his .357 thinking somebody had broken in. I was standing there staring at my mom and she is pointing at the bookcase going "rat, rat, rat". All I see is the rear of the cat-the rest of him was under the bookcase. (This was a good size cat who once won a Garfield lookalike contest.) Dad put the gun down and got the broom. I got the cat out of the way and dad swept this poor, terrified little rabbit out from under the book case. He put it out in the back yard and then he and I both collapsed in hysterics for about 20 minutes. Still not as funny as your mouse, though. I love that one.
