Thankful Thursday - Birdie TV Channel

Hi Pals,

"Every morning I have birdies in for breakfast - I even invite them to come in the house.   They are so close -  dang patio door just gets in the way of my having a good brekkie!"

"Should it be a  BarBeQue or just Roasted under glass?"

 "Dang - I just can't get him.  Come in little friend - come in.  I share a meal off  errrrr with you."

I am so thankful for my birdies.   And one of these days...........................

Reaching Out To Someone In Need - Twitter

Hi Pals,

Exciting news..........

I'm collecting stories of how someone on Twitter reached out to you and touched your life in the time of great need when you were really hurting.  It could have  been with a card or personal note, perhaps a couple of DMs, maybe a small gift arriving in the mail, etc. - some act of kindness that really touched you and you'll always remember it.     

A few days ago one of our Twitter friends contacted a few of us via email and asked if we had any stories like I just mentioned.  This particular human was working on a project for her job at work and needed a story or two.   Well, one by one these stories arrived by email, and the stories were each so very touching that many of us had very leaky  eyes.   Then someone made the comment that these stories should be turned into a book.  

@FreshOtis and @MickeyShortTail's humans (both of whom have published books) volunteered to turn these stories into a book if someone would collect them.   Well, here I am.  I volunteered M for the job.   

If you have a story and would like to share it, please email M at   Just name the subject line "Animal Story" so she doesn't miss it.   She'll be collecting stories and will turn them over to @MickeyShortTail and @FreshOtis for final editing and making into a book.

The plan is to sell copies of the book and donate the money to an animal charity (to be determined yet).

You can help too by RTing the tweet when you see it.   

If you have any questions you can contact @Mariodacat either by email or a DM on Twitter.   

This is going to be so very cool.

Thankful Thursday Blog Hop - Animal Dentists

Hi pals,

Many of you already know the story of my toothies or lack of!!   That’s right - I has no toothies – NONE AT ALL!   They were all pulled out  about  8 months after I was adopted because of a bad tooth disease called Stomatitis.    M says that means I’m kind of allergic to my own toothies or tooth decay.   My toothie story can be found in a tab at the top of my bloggy,

I am very thankful to my lady vet for discovering the Stomatitis  and for suggesting to M and D that  they take me to an Animal Dentist.  Yup – you read it right – “Animal Dentist.    I might not be here today if it were not for my special lady vet suspecting the disease and then recommending that I go see an animal dentist.    They literally saved my life because if left untreated,  Stomatitis can cause many serious health issues like heart disease and can eventually kill you.      Talk about scary when we heard that news.

A Dentist is necessary because they have the more specialized equipment and X-ray machines.   My dentist said he had to clean out a couple of toothie chips still left in my mouth from when my regular vet pulled a toothie.   You see, regular vets try really hard and do the best they can, but quite often they leave fragments of teeth behind deep down in the gum line when they pull teeth.   Normally that would never cause a problem unless you are allergic to the remnants left behind.   It takes high-powered, equipment to see tiny toothie fragments left below the gum.  If you are allergic, even those tiny bits can cause problems for you leading to heart disease, and many other deadly diseases.  

So pals, if you or anyone you know is diagnosed with Stomatitis, please get to an animal dentist.   M talked to my dentist recently trying to help another pal.   There is now a web site listing all the Animal Dentists in the US and some foreign countries, published by the AmericanVeterinary  Dental College.  Check it out!

Don’t worry about no teeth, I’m doing just great without any and am very healthy now that we got all that stuff out of my mouth that I’m allergic to.    M says if anyone would like to discuss this with her, you can leave a comment in my bloggy and she’ll get back to you.  I’m also @Mariodacat on Twitter and in Facebook as Mario Roever.  So your humans can feel free to contact her anytime.   Please pals, just get to a Dentist if you have Stomatitis!
