Let's partner up, Crys. XD You, too, DQ. We could have an awesome business here. Right in time for Halloween.

SKA, yeah. If your betta thinks you = food, he might get super excited and start swimming a lot. And some bettas are more active than others and glass surf a lot. As long as he's not acting weird in any other way, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Ugh I swear I'm going to buy a gun and shoot the next dog I find in our front yard chasing our cats.

This is the third time it's happened in the past two weeks. Luckily our oldest cat is not scared of dogs, and went after it himself. However, we lost one of our previous cats when a dog being walked loose got into our front yard and broke her back right in front of me.

Some lady had the nerve to tell us her two Great Danes wouldn't hurt the cats as she insipidly tried to call them back. Eventually my mum stomped down the sideway and grabbed their collars herself, and gave the lady an earful in the process.

If your dog does not have an iron-clad recall DO NOT WALK IT OFF LEAD. Particularly when it goes onto our property where our cats have a right to be.

This is why I'm terrified of letting my cats outside. I love dogs, I really do. It's the owners who don't train them that I don't like. I'm so sorry about your one cat, that must have been so difficult to witness.

Yeah our other two cats are indoor only cats (unless outside on their harnesses). However, our oldest goes neurotic when we try to keep him inside and our other cat was given to us by my dad when he moved interstate. He attacks everyone, so he lives in the laundry at night and goes out in the day.

The sad thing was our old cat Belle was absolutely the gentlest cat ever. She used to bring back mice in her younger days as presents, but then regressed to bread and old sausage (our neighbour feeds the birds). It was a horrible way for her to go, particularly since we had to drive her to the emergency vet to have her euthanised. All because some idiot had to not clip on a lead that morning.

Worst part about it is we saw who we suspect was the owner walking past our house, his dog off lead at exactly the same time the next morning.

Trepidatious raaave....I think Andromeda has improved a little! I'm afraid to believe I might win this battle, but I feel more secure than I did yesterday that he might pull through.

We have a leash law here but unfortunately, some of my stupid neighbors think it doesn't pertain to them.

I know where I live in CA, people have been arrested if their dog is off a leash and it harms someone/something.

I know in Wa where I am its required by law all dogs must be on a leash I dont mind sense it probably saves some dogs from running out infront of cars.
