Mangy Little Lethal White Aussie


 Something I will never understand is how people can allow their animals to have puppies, watching them grow, and dumping them to die. I’ve been in rescue a long time and yet every day someone new surprises me with their heartlessness.  I’ve sat here the last 5 days thinking about a puppy I saw on a rescue page. Covered in fleas and ticks, most of her hair missing from mange. She was sunburn and filled with infection. It had been 5 days, surely she’s feeling better? Has a loving foster home? I reached out to the rescue for an update since I knew who owned it. I was shocked when she was in boarding not a home 😭 I decided she needed to come stay with us and heal. 

A week has passed now and I picked her up, she’s terrified and weak. Barely able to muster the energy to crawl from her cage I try to hide my anger. Not at her but at the entire world that had failed her so badly the past few months. The shelter when she was picked up gave her the treatment for mange, and the rescue a bath, but it took a week to get her to the vet for bloodwork! You see for god knows how long her body has been fighting a skin infection, and anaplasmosis, a tick disease. The anger just fills me knowing that even the rescue had been failing her. Why? Well she’s safe now, and that’s what matters. I will never let another person fail her.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
