My neighbor friend at 4URPets just got tagged by Gina and now I’ve been tagged too!
4URPets is a new blogger with a great sense of humor, so although I don’t care for tags, I couldn’t possibly say no to this tag, and in honor of her three Chihuahuas and pet blog, I’m going to give you 7 random facts about my pets.

First I have to post the rules:

  1. Link to the person who tagged you;
  2. Leave a comment on their blog so that their readers can visit yours;
  3. Post the rules on your blog;
  4. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog;
  5. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post;
  6. Include links to their blogs;
  7. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

OK. Here are my 7 random pet facts:

  1. My very first pet was a Siamese cat who rescued me from my fear of cats and converted me to a cat lover thanks to his sweet, kind, gentle and caring ways;
  2. My cat would faithfully stay in bed with me whenever I was sick;
  3. My cat liked to swing in the bed sheets hammock-style whenever we changed the sheets and would then take the sheets in between his two front paws to “help” make the bed (boy, I wish I had thought of taking videos);
  4. I had a blue and a green parakeet. When the green parakeet was ready to die he made himself a little helmet out of seeds!!
  5. I inherited my golden retriever from my mother-in-law, but we loved each other since puppyhood.
  6. My golden retriever was an AKA-certified pure-breed stud and a trained service dog who saved people’s lives;
  7. My golden retriever was poisoned during the Chinese pet food recalls of January 2007. I call it mass pet murder, and I am very angry at the pet food companies and China. I have sworn to never feed pet food to any of my future dogs or cats because “pets are people too” and their lives are too valuable.

Now, for the 7 random bloggers, I will continue with the pet theme and tag 7 people who recently came by my blog and who have posted about their pets. This is by no means an obligation, as these tags can sometimes be downright bothersome, but if you want to participate, then you can:

  1. Robin at Around The Island, whose children are pictured riding a camel;
  2. Playful Professional at Talent To Play will run a half-marathon for a kitten;
  3. Nicholas at A Gentleman’s Domain, who tells his cats he loves them;
  4. Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer whose beloved rat recently passed;
  5. SJ at Pink Flamingo, who has a blessed 6-inch kitten;
  6. Sarah at Puss Reboots photographs cats;
  7. YOU at Your Blog — if you want to be tagged, consider yourself tagged! 😉

Halloween Safety Tips

Posted by infinitygoods on October 29, 2007

  • Be sure to clear your front yard and steps of any trip hazards.
  • Remove anything which can hurt someone, be damaged or stolen, such as ladders, extension cords, flower pots and containers, bicycles, children’s toys, garden hoses, etc.
  • Clear walkways of leaves and other slip hazards.
  • Be sure to turn on as many outdoor lights as possible.
  • If using candles in your jack-o-lanterns, be sure to leave enough space at the top for the candle to burn safely and make sure decorations cannot blow into the candles’ flames.
  • There are now many styles of inexpensive battery-powered lights to use inside jack-o-lanterns, even styles which flicker. You can also use a small string of outdoor, stay-cool Christmas lights, and you can also use glow sticks, which come in several colors such as green, orange, yellow, pink, etc.
  • Make sure your electrical extensions or outlets are not overloaded.
  • Keep all pets safely inside. Both animals and children can get spooked by each other.
  • Be particularly vigilant about keeping cats indoors and safe from any possible escapes, even a few days before Halloween, as weirdos, cult members and miscellaneous crazies enjoy hurting our dear kitties even more around this time of year.
  • Check all candy before your children eat it.

Infinity Goods Wishes You and Yours a Safe and Happy Halloween!! 😉
