This very friendly and talkative kitty announced herself to me this morning from inside my chimney. I opened the flu and she fell into my living room, where she seemed quite at home.
I put her back outside, and she found her way back to the roof, looking like she was trying to find her way down the chimney again.

To the Editor of the Patriot Ledger,
I attended the demonstration at Dedham Superior Court yesterday (Not-guilty pleas in Quincy cat death case. November 22, 2013). We stood on the street in front of the courthouse in the cold rain for two hours before entering a courtroom to bear witness to a man and woman capable of a heinous act against a completely innocent living creature. I felt very sad sitting there, and a bit sick to my stomach.
Sadly a large whiteish cat was discovered last night (around 6:30 pm) hit and killed in the road, most likely by a car in front of 64 Western Ave. He or She was a large white cat with tabby type markings. The cat has been stored in a box if you are possibly the owner and care to examine please reply, but will be turned over to the town animal control officer by early tomorrow morning.Sorry for your loss if this is you. Please respond to this post for more information if you think was your cat.
New research on dog's brains strongly suggests they should be better protected by policy responses and social practices.
This morning tow lovely roosters found their way to our hen house. They are pretty birds but do not belong to us.
Since we live in town we are unable to have Roosters. If you are missing your roosters please let me know. If you would like two free roosters please let me know. Free to a good home.
I am trying trying to find a holistic veterinarian for my dog. Here are the possibilities I have uncovered. I am wondering if anyone has any experience with these veterinarians, or any additional suggestions. Thanks.
In My Good Death
I will find myself waist deep in high summer
The humming shock of the golden light.
And I will hear them before I see them and know
right away who is bounding across the field to meet me.
Dr. White, the veterinarian who does the spay/neuter clinics at Windham County Humane Society and in Bellows Falls (as well as all over the state!) has received a grant through VT-CAN to subsidize kitten surgeries.
For the Month of June, residents of Windham County can get kittens (6 months old or younger) spayed or neutered for only $20. Vaccinations can be done at the time of the surgery (Rabies and Distemper) for an additional $10.
Harmony lot was the site of one of thirty My Dog is Cool Action Day events held around the country this month. Despite the cold, wind, and driving rain which eventually forced us to leave earlier than we wanted to (and Kevin Maloney’s rather scary mask and tail) lots of laughs were had and stories of dogs in hot cars shared with us from visitors from South Carolina, New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Texas, as well as around Vermont.
