Beginning the Year Right!

News flash: January 24 is Change a Pet’s Life Day, and in my opinion, it ought to be a national holiday. Close the banks, hold the mail, and only essential workers need to show up for work. Everybody else gets a paid day off to make the world better for pets, including Jessica Rabbit and Cocomelon who, like all of our nuggets, have returned the favor and changed our lives forever.

Justice Finally Arrives for Tucker

After three years of waiting and postponements, sentencing was handed down in the animal abuse case of Ellie Knoller. Knoller had previously pled guilty to three counts of Aggravated Cruelty to Animals, after brutally beating to death two puppies he adopted (Tucker, from North Shore Animal League America, and Cooper, from a breeder) and causing permanent physical damage to a third, Bella, whom he also obtained from a breeder. Presiding Judge Teresa Corrigan called it the worst case of animal cruelty she has ever seen.

December Magic

Ever since I was a little girl, December has been magical, filled with music and lights, food and family, and the spicy scent of pine. It’s a month of festivities: Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Festivus, Kwanzaa, and New Year’s Eve. But did you know December is also National Cat Lover’s Month? In my world, that’s what truly makes this the most wonderful time of the year!
