My employees (and former employees) bring their pets by my office so I can meet them. 

 

Pictured are Solo napping on my desk, and Beans the baby guinea pig. Beans bit me right after this photo - I think he was mad that I stopped petting him to send an email.

It was just too nice of a day to be inside, so here are a few shots of the yard critters.

Sometimes the feral cats cooperate:

Little guys seem to love the big gals:

And a few in the frostweeds:

This little bugger and his partner in crime have found their favorite snack - Veitchia arecina.  They must be high in fat and carbs by the look of it.20220704_Rabbit.jpg.507add0c2592e8fc23c4857088910fa7.jpg

In reality, he is not aggressive, but just screams in rage if you pick him up.

He is actually mellow and confident, for a rooster, but he doesn't know what to make of this black rectangle being pointed at him.

It is a lot like Stampy from the Simpsons, some animals, like humans are just jerks.

My younger brother hunts wild rabbits with an air pistol and makes sandwiches out of them. They're also good curried.

Very expensive vet bill today but someone doesn't have cancer, so it was worth it. And we got some fashionable and not so fashionable attire.

Poor doggo. Wearing the cone of shame, complete with the handkerchief. May he/she be chasing toys again soon.

John, there is a rigid collar, called "BiteNot" that immobilizes the dog's neck.  This can be more comfortable for the dog,  like not tripping on staircases.  However, it only works for injuries on the torso, and won't help with leg injuries where the dog can still lick.   :)  

  We used it to great effect when our dog suffered a nasty laceration on her rib cage.

Thanks Darold! Unfortunately it's one of his back legs. He's chewed past the skin, and his lymph nodes are massive. Poor guy came home with $200 worth of pills.

Power has been out at my apartment since 2am last night. Entergy has been pushing back the time to fix by an hour since 3am. It's now 9pm :rolleyes: plus it's storming for the next few hours. 

 

So me and Sancho are back at work. I guess running a hotel occasionally has its perks.

He's already had his breakfast and his dinner but this has typically been the time he gets dinner so I'm getting some mad stink eye here

This year we got some new kittens, who are now more or less full grown cats.  I am pleased to discover that they like the container ranch nearly as much as I do.

Yeah, I've hogged this thread. 

 

Sancho won't drink water out of a bowl. Here he is with a Taco Cabana cup aka a @fusca planter.

Sancho has been fighting off a UTI for a little while now. He was allergic to the first 2 antibiotics, the 3rd one did nothing, and now he's taking something so strong I'm supposed to wear gloves when I handle it. He went through 3 ultrasounds, a cat scan and X-rays to make sure he didn't have kidney stones or anything worse. I had to start a GoFundMe to help pay for his bills... He's had so much energy and he's happy to be in a big house with tons of land and plenty of long country roads to walk... You'd never know he was sick. He still good boy. 

My mom has tons of feral cats, and he gets along with most of them. The possums and raccoons eat the cat's food, and Sancho loves to chase them off and wants to fight them. He's barked more in the past month than he has in his entire life, and his bark is hilarious - he sounds way bigger than he is, but he doesn't sound like a big dog at all. 

Here he is giving me the stink eye because the doc had to put a catheter in his infected boy parts for a urinalysis.
