TW for pet death & tragedy

This is really hitting me and many other people hard.

Howly Wolfenoot!

How are you celebrating this new-but-sure-to-become-perennial howliday? I’m debating whether I want to risk the crowds at Joann fabrics to pick up some gray food coloring and edible silver colored dust to make full moon sugar cookies. The weather is discouraging me. So is the decidedly un-howly puppy curled up by my…

Paging all you management/HR GTers

Question for you all: is there ever a situation, short of stopping an employee from committing a crime or harming a person/animal, where it is appropriate to push or grab the wrists of an employee, specifically because you disagree with something they’re doing?

Blog platforms?

So I think I should start a blog about coping with my dad’s dementia, specifically a lot of the things I’ve used to keep him organized, how old family dynamics come up and complicate things as a caregiver, dad being cute, etc. There will likely be some photos.


Finally on my way back home after twelve days or so visiting my dad and trying to get all his stuff in order. The first week was absolutely insane. I won’t go in to details because I would doxx myself if I did, but there were several things I had to remedy immediately. We visited both of his main doctors and everyone…

Anyone been double billed by phone/internet provider? 

Noticed yesterday that it appears that AT&T has been double billing my dad for internet service. He has one internet plan bundled with his phone bill for around $14, and another free standing internet bill for $50. I’m not sure how long this has been going on, but naturally I’m furious and wondering if we have a…

How alarmed should I be by this?

My father has dementia and lives on the other side of the country. Things have taken a turn towards needing more action, so I’ve been in communication with my relatives out there by phone. My mother (they’re divorced, BTW) previously worked for a family law firm in the town where my dad lived, and an attorney at that…

Anyone who has taken Gabapentin 

Did you experience a lack of appetite? The canine started taking it yesterday and today, even a few hours later, hasn’t finished her breakfast, which usually she wolfs down. She’s been nibbling at it occasionally

Anyone else having trouble commenting from desktop?

I tired to post a comment on one of the sub blogs earlier and it NEVER went through. Tried a couple other comments in different places, same thing, but it’s fine from mobile?

Paging Krabby!

Regarding your earlier thread about cat and dog treats:

I made a thing: Should I fuck with that wild animal? I made a thing: Should I fuck with that wild animal?

After a conversation with a friend the other day about not fucking with wildlife, I decided to make this. It’s only slightly tongue-in-cheek.

Is this as weird as it seems? Taliban hostage family

So, when I first heard about this case I didn’t want to pass judgement. I know some people take extreme risks in the pursuit of journalism or relief work or whatever. But this whole thing is really starting to sound like Josh Boyle is a narcissist with a messiah complex who is perfectly willing to sacrifice the safety…

Important! Pets affected by Harvey!

HLP inc./Chameleon, the maker of the best and most widely used shelter management software in the country, has tweaked their regular lost pet search website,, to make it easier for Harvey pets to be located even if they’re scattered far and wide at different shelters and humane societies. It’s not 100%…

Here's a handy Air Quality Map

You can even set it to loop through the air quality of the past calendar day, which I did and it confirmed for me that the air quality did indeed get better from the time I noticed the orange moon at work and the time I got home at midnight.

So you want to help the puppies and kittens in Houston

I’m gonna make a short list here. Please don’t just randomly ship packages of supplies to Texas. It is better for the organizations to receive monetary donations they can use to buy what they need than to have a can of dog food arrive one day, a pack of blankets the next, and some pet Halloween costumes the day after…

Convert Your Relatives Reading List

TBH, I’m looking for recommendations. Help from The Salad Bowl and maybe Oppo would be appreciated.


...the leader of “No Kill Nation” was outed as a nazi after marching in Charlottesville this past weekend.

Roommate/Tenant agreements stuff?

So here’s a situation I’m hoping GT or the rest of the kinjaverse can help with:

Don't try to come for the shelter workers

...because we will destroy you like so many innocent little puppies:

Holy crap, y'all

This is the nicest crazy cat lady house I’ve ever seen. Usually they’re filthy and grimy with poop and pee everywhere, but this one seems like they had a reasonable number of well cared for and extremely, obsessively loved cats:
