Last Post

This is a very sad day for all of us. We are retiring from blogging and this is our last post.

We have had some fun and met some nice blogging kitties, woofies, hamsters and rabbits. It was a pleasure to know each one of you. Many thanks to any who have visited regularly. And also to any who have dropped by occasionally.

We hope we gave you an occasional smile and perhaps a morsel of helpful information on occasion.

We wish you all well. And perhaps we'll meet again one day....


  1. But what will we do without the Funny Farm? How will we get our pet related news updates?

    Seriously though, you guys have served a great purpose here in our community and we will miss your updates. We hope that you will continue to be part of the community even you choose not to have a blog.

  2. I hope it wasn't anything I pawed or woo'd?

    We wish woo well BUT wonder why woo are leaving us??

    Hugz&Khysses Until We Meet Again,
    Khyra and Phyll

  3. We are sorry that you are retiring from blogging. We will miss you.
    Maybe you'll get bored & have to start blogging again, we hope so.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    Sammy, Festus & Emma

  4. Jan and gang:

    After reading this post, this is a sad day for us too. Why would you want to retire from blogging? (I know it's none of my business; it's a rhetorical question.)

    We will miss your blog - it's one of the more intelligent ones out there and we've enjoyed it so much.

    Have you been disappointed in some way? We've had a couple of ups and downs blogging too and there were times we wanted to pull the blog. But we got over it. If there is a problem that we might be able to help with, please email my Mama at:

    We really hope you'll reconsider. We love you.

    Linda and Chef

  5. Don't know what to say... this is pretty sudden. Anyway, whatever you decide to do, a great many people will care and will support your decision. Good luck!

  6. Oh noes! Please don't stop blogging altogether, even if you just do an occasional post! I love you guys and I know lots of others do too! I don't know what's in the air but you are the second blog I've read about closing down today. If you feel like it please email me at or if you feel like a chat you can skype me. My Skype name is tortie-cat (I couldn't get Black Cat unless I appended a squillion numbers to it!).

    Love to you all,
    Black Cat (Penny)

  7. Oh, no! We're so surprised and deeply saddened. It really is a sad day. We don't know what brought you to this decision, but we sure will miss you. Be well and happy. Purrs. ♥

  8. We are so sad to hear this. We have greatly enoyed your blog, and appreciate that you have hilighted some very important issues. You have made a positive impact on all of us through your blog. Your blog has truly made us smile and think. We will miss reading it.

  9. But we only just started to know you and all the animals! And my mom could count on you for the latest news which showed how much you cared for the broad animal community. This is so sad. If you start a blog somewhere else and would like us to stay friends please email my mom at

    We wish you the very, very best and hope that we will be in touch again someday.

    love & wags,
    River & mom
    Pee-ess--thank you for a goodbye post. So many just disappear and we don't know what happened!

  10. Jan and everyone,

    We are also very sad to see you go, but we hope that you have a lovely and joyeous life on the other side of the computer screen.

    Best wishes,
    Kilroy & family

  11. Oh nossss! Please reconsider your decision or at least do an occasional post. I will miss you so much.

    You have been doing a great job promoting the causes of furries. Your departure will leave a big hole in the CB. All your furriends will definitely be saddened and you will be sorely missed.

  12. No, no, no I will miss all of you too much! We have had too many losses and now without you blogging I will have that loss.
    Your blog does good with getting important information to all and you gang, well they all know how to party and have fun.
    Please, maybe after you have a little time off, which once in awhile we all need from time to time, you will come back.
    Please don't foret me. All of you are good friends and I don't want to loose you all too.

  45. We are sad that you have decided to retire from blogging. We visit often even if we don't comment often,(usually because we follow the links on your post and forget to come back and leave a comment.) Maybe you could just do an occasional post or leave a message on the CB to let everyone know how you are doing. We will miss you.

  53. I think yoo wood be surprized at how many of us drop by a cuppul of times a week withowt leeving comments - last yeer win the FL's daytime hunting place started taking up so much of her time, she sed I had to eether cut down on my commenting or cut down on my blog posts, so I cut back on commenting cuz I can vizit abowt 4 times as many blogs win I don't comment on evry one. It's not a purrfikt solution, but sumthing had to give.

    We can empathize, tho. Blogging is a big investment in time and enerjy and owr ladeez don't always have enuf of both to spare. Yer all grate members of the blogosfeer and we wood just kerl up in a sobbing ball with the meezers if we never herd frum yoo agin. And I've dun enuf krying this week, so I hope it duzn't come to that.

  54. Come visit our blog. We are giving you awards.
