Swinging temps make for severe cabin feve

We’ve had some interesting weather the last few months. We’ve had snow and 70-degree weather all in the same week. That is just strange for North Carolina, at least it used to be.

I am thankful that April is here because maybe that’ll be the start of nicer weather.

It may be taking a while for spring to arrive –– even though it’s long past the time marked on the calendar –– but I’m sure once it arrives, it won’t be long before the typical southern heat and humidity will be causing us to complain about as much as we did over winter weather.
Summertime brings lots of fond memories, especially those of mini-vacations I spent with my sisters while growing up.

You, as a pet owner are 100 percent responsible.  Virtually every pet that ends up in a shelter or on the street is there because a human relationship failed them. It’s always the pet that pays in the end.  We would rather a person not adopt a pet unless they commit to do the following, because just feeding isn’t enough.
