For Your Funny Bone!

Those of you out with furry little four legged children will appreciate this joke my very best friend sent me today. I laughed so hard I may have pee'd myself a little. Ok, I did pee myself! What woman over 50 hasn't done that either when sneezing or laughing?
Anyway, I wanted to share this with my reading public, so you, too, would get a good laugh today. Because when you think about it, we would all feel better if we laughed a whole lot more. So enjoy!

Priceless. I actually ask for liquid meds for my cat. Then I squirt it into some tuna. Magic. No stitches required.

I'm an animal lover can attest the validity of both of those. The dog would eat his pill in LETTUCE! The cat? Oy, don't get me started. :)

My kids LOVED your pictures and decided they have to have a cat now. They said, "I want the first one." and then saw the scary one and said, "NOT THAT ONE!!!" Such cute pics!
