Re: the data: yoga equivalent to exercise

We are lucky enough to have an exceptional yoga instructor at work. I did some yoga before she began teaching there but for the last 7 years I've been there in her class twice weekly. I have gotten so much stronger and more flexible. My body and mind [more]

Re: Kitty who just wants a friend

Maybe you can set a schedule of play sessions with him before feeding in the morning and in the evening, at least 5 - 10 minutes devoted to just playing with him. And get some interactive toys for him for while you are away. All my cats, as they [more]

Re: Kitty who just wants a friend

I would really think hard before introducing yet another cat into the mix. You could always foster one from a rescue and see how it goes but have an out if it doesn't work. Your girl is 21. Maybe let her enjoy her golden years without making too many [more]

Re: Life Updates

So sorry for your loss of Guido. What a devoted friend you were to him to the end. I, too, have enjoyed your stories of him and your other furry friends. Please keep posting about them. Thank you for sharing Guido and the others with us Fools.

Re: I know the first holidays are

I think it's good you are all talking about the future. Where will MIL live if/when she sells? I imagine this is probably the beginning of new family traditions as the younger generation begins taking over the holiday hosting, too. So glad you were [more]

Re: Assisted living questions?

We used an elder care lawyer and financial planner and it was the smartest thing we could have done. But we did it a couple of years before mom had to go into the nursing home. I would find one ASAP, take Sheila's advice. There are SO many little [more]

Re: got milk?

I became lactose intolerance several years ago and my husband has always been so. We do soy and almond milk/yogurt. I can have small amounts of half and half in my tea with no issues and hard cheese in small quantities also is ok, and I indulge once [more]

Re: Cat attacked by bull dogs, going into surger

I'm so sorry about your little kitty. I hope he recovers and does ok. If he goes to surgery, they will most likely clean him up while he's anesthetized. After that, a warm damp rag will suffice. I sure hope he pulls through. What a terrible thing for [more]

Re: Smart Talk or similar

I am interested in this also. Curious how many phones and what plan you have? We are on Verizon, too, but have OLD flip phones and do no date/texting/internet. Our monthly bill for 2 phones with (I think)700 shared minutes is about 72.00. I'm wanting [more]

Re: Personal Services Contract

I would like to add to the chorus that you should come here as often as needed to vent, question, cry or whatever you need to do. This board has saved me so often. You are going through a LOT. Get support where you can, a face to face support group [more]

Re: Kale

We regularly get a kale-spinach salad mix at the store that I love. We also do kale chips ever so often when it's cool enough to use the oven. I really like it. I eat a lot of greens, spinach, turnip, mustard and kale.

Re: feeding question

Try getting one of those little balls that you put kibble in - they have to work for their food. Provides exercise and stimulates them mentally and keeps them from just laying there eating. The one I got has adjustable holes so maybe if you still [more]

Re: Limping Maltese Update

So sorry to hear this diagnosis, but wait until you get the report from the radiologist. He/She may have a different take on it. Is it possible to get a biopsy of what they are seeing? You appear to have good specialists. I'm betting they will be [more]

Re: Blind

Your vet is right, this could have happened at any time and with no other dogs around, at his own house, etc. When I worked for a vet we would see this breed and Pekes quite often with this problem. Not your fault. Still sucks, but not your [more]
