Monday Mentions: Aging Pets, Sorkinisms & Indie CrowdFunding

BlogPaws.com is a community of bloggers with a special interest in pets–and August has been named Senior Pet Month. Isn’t that a PAW-some infographic? Those who read this blog know that my Seren-Kitty is a senior citizen at 16-years-young, and Magical-Dawg on the cusp at age 7. Do you have a senior pet? I’ll confess, I don’t know what age is considered “senior” for other critters–ferrets and suchlike–although when I was a kid my most ancient hamster lived to about age 3.

For those needing additional help for your aging dogs and cats, I hope you’ll check out one of my books. I spent lots of time updating them, and they’re available in print, Ebook and audio now. Here’s the amazon links for Complete Care for Your Aging Dog  and Complete Care for Your Aging Cat.

Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. Check out the SQUEEE! cute pet-astic videos at the bottom, too. It’s fascinating to think how dolphins communicate–and compare it to they parakeet chatter. I’ve also included another Thrillerfest video from the past–and a fun video that may get authors re-thinking the latest catch-phrases. For new followers to the blog, welcome! and you can expect more cat and dog specific schtuff later in the week on Wednesday and Friday.

  1. Great blog. Amy that parrot tore me up – hilarious. If I had known they lived that long I may have got me one when I was very young – too old now. I did have a parakeet named Henryetta as a kid and he was so sweet. Happy writing this week – hope you make lots of progress.
