We?ve been to see the very fabulous The Secret Life Of Pets and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who has a pet themselves. You?ll find the clever observations hysterical. I?m sure Petite Pudding?s sausage dogs could have had a whole scene to themselves with their naughty fridge-raiding antics!
One of the things the film has taught me, is that pets come in all shapes and sizes. This round-up is often focussed on the canines, and whilst it?s not deliberate ? these are the posts you send to me ? this is your call to action! I?d love you to wax lyrical about your lizard, pay homage to your hamster, gloat about your goat, and tell us about your tortoise. So come on, let?s not let dogs have all the fun!
In an effort to redress the balance a little, this month I?m focusing on our feline friends.
Erica at 9 2 Three 30 has had a worrying time with her cat Amber.
Ninja Killer Cat has some witty insights into her cat?s mood and sulking habits.
Blue Bear Wood has some helpful tips (and gorgeous photos!) to keep your cat happy.
And finally, Ruth over at Rock N Roller Baby gives us an all-too-brief introduction to her latest additions Blossom and Fuzzy ? I?m looking forward to following these two?s antics.
As ever, I love to see your pet-based posts, so please do tag me in any.

- Izle Kickstarter Offers Grapple Hooking On To Clouds
By Graham Smith on April 9th, 2015 at 10:00 am. Tweet this [embedded content] [embedded content] By the time I?ve learned that a game is about crafting on a procedural landscape and on Kickstarter, I?m a sludge on the ground, my lack of interest unable to hold my molecules together. Izle had a long way to go to re-corporealise me, then. It did it first by making its procedural worlds […]

- Being friends is more important than being right (according to my 5 year old, a conversation on the train about God and beliefs).
This morning?s Conversation On The Train with my 5 year old was a corker. Friends will know that because we moved house at the end of the school year, my dear Small Boy now goes to school 14 miles from our front door. Not being a driver means we stroll out of the door at 0730 in the mornings and join a gaggle of commuters on the train. It?s usually […]

Mummy and the Cuties getting wrist weights The issue of nutrition is a big issue as those we care about get older. It?s more than about simply eating right.
