A Conversation



"Psst, Bogey."

"Yeah?"

"Do you know what month it is?"

"It's April, of course."

"But do you know what comes in April?"

"April showers?"

"Besides that."

"Umm. Let me confer with Mom."

-----Short intermission------

"Mom says it's Animal Cruelty Prevention Month."

"Do you know what does that means?"

"Not exactly."

"It means people need to step in when they see animals mistreated and do something about it."

"Like reporting it to the humane society?"

"Exactly."

"Give me the phone, Indy."

"Why do you need the phone?"

"I'm reporting Mom for putting these nail caps on me. I really don't like the color."

"That's not cruelty, Bogey. Would you rather she declawed you?"

"Declaw? Ummm, never mind."

*********

April is Animal Cruelty Prevention Month. Please remember to take a stand for critters.

They depend on us to speak out for them!

Nail caps! That's a new one--and what a good idea! I always had my cats declawed because they never went outside, but I can see the logic/kindness in this.

Loved the conversation of the two small furry ones! You should really consider writing things like this for some serious publication...they are wonderful!

I must have known what month it is as I've been re-watching my favorite series of all times--"All Creatures Great and Small". Heading to the library this morning for another DVD!

We don't think they have that here but don't worry, we would always step in if we saw any animal being mistreated.

We had no idea it was animal cruelty prevention month! Thank you for sharing!!!!

We are glad you let your mom put those caps on your nails... being declawed is most certainly cruel!
