Letters from the Front Line:Paddyannie: I was aware of this in Manx cats. What really goes on in the brain of a person who wants a cat without a tail so bad that they will put up with cats that can’t control their poop, just to have a cat with no tail? Like,...Kathy: When Chris first wrote of the no tail, I was not aware of this condition going as far that they could be born with no anus. Death will occur without surgery to create and anus.

None of us...Kathy: Paddyannie: I like you might be wrong and made stupid choices and seems we are on the same path in our journeys. Right don’t follow me, but journey with me for Truth. I prefer to be happy and not hurt anyone. Attempt to...Paddyannie: I think there are only 3 dog constellations, big dog, little dog, and hunting dogs. Dogs are a big part of the life of a hunter. There is a big bear and a little bear too. Some, like Virgo, do look like their name, it is a...Jen Robinson: “The “dog days” are the stretch of time in midsummer when the combined heat and humidity make the afternoons unbearable and send humans and dogs alike seeking shelter in cool shade or the forgetfulness of a sultry...Kathy: Paddyannie you are quite correct.
