I do not agree with you alibsam and I have read the same posts.  We reached different conclusions, is that a crime on CC?

Does someone get called a troll when they do not agree with the popular choice amongst seemingly uneducated people?  In this case, call me a troll.

Is your adult dog not on preventative medicine?  or was this a preexisting condition?

They do that because of the way you trained them.  If you feel that you do not abuse the usage of crates, then I was not speaking to you.  However, because you commented so quick I'm betting you feel guilty.

This is ridiculous people, many of you do not deserve the dogs you have in your life.  If you don't have time for a puppy, please do not get one.  Second- if you think a cute, soft puppy can be brought out for an hour of your pleasure and shoved back in a crate then something is wrong with you.  People who put a dog in a crate while at work AND while they sleep should have to spend a week in prison (which would be BETTER).  If one does not have the time and love to share with an animal, why do we feel we must 'own' one?

Whoever said they put food and water in the crate is down right HORRIBLE.  A dog will NOT want to go to the bathroom near their food/water or in their crate.  Try to remember the last time you had to go REALLY bad on a car trip with no rest stop for miles?  That's what I thought...

Crate training is ok when not abused, so many people abuse it and have no clue.  Some of you are on the right track, kudos to you.

I think common sense and compassion for animals is missing in some of the posts.  I know I will get flamed for this, and people will not see their mistakes.  However, it must be said and maybe those that are off'd will think harder in their actions.

It's the most selfish act anyone can do.  My aunt and uncle both took their life, they didn't know pain.  What I see in the eyes of my grandparents is true pain.

Lol, kbella, I always read Harry Potter when I'm sick. And I watch the first and second films. They're better than hot soup! And I definitely agree with wanting the  movies to be like the books. I'm not there to see the director's idea of Harry Potter, I'm there to see J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter. >:|

Harry Potter...similar to...Twilight? Only in the hype that surrounds them. Thinking that just because someone loves one and isn't fond of the other makes that person inconsistent strikes me as a little narrow...

I was kind of disappointed in the last book, to be honest, hk. I don't if it's because I knew it was over after all those years or what...Dude, I can't wait to see Neville decapitate Nagini (but that won't be until part 2).

kikt, the movies really don't compare to the books. That doesn't mean that they aren't worth seeing. I've had a lot of fun watching the films over the years.

Cedric Diggory = likely best role R-Patz will ever land. :D

I'd also like to point out that the Harry Potter series is a clever, feel-good series that didn't once make me face-palm or want to smack any of the characters (or the author) out of frustration. But thazz juss mee.

I called you narrow minded because you called me narrow minded for having a different opinion.  It's obvious that the people reading this thread LOVE Harry Potter (LOL) and can't understand the big deal about Twilight.  I just find it amusing.  Many people have my opinion outside of the small glass house many of you have built for yourself.

Some of the Anita Blake books would be a good recommendation.  I enjoyed them for the most part up until book 8 or 9 from what I can remember.

Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh ugh UGH!

Laurell K. Hamilton should be taken out back and shot.

Do you like trashy novels that are more sex than plot? Do you like awful, tawdry characters who don't so much as grow as suddenly get new wonderful powers? Than Laurell K. Hamilton is your gal!

If, on the other hand, you like plot and character development and, you know, GOOD writing, stay the hell away from her.

 Maybe I'm not a prude, but there really wasn't much sex in the first part of her series (did you even read them?).  It went down after book 9?  Which is when I stopped reading.  Good writing is all subjective.  Her writing never caught me as great, and to be honest the books are not meant to be read one after the other.  However they can be enjoyed and have been by many.

My husband and I are pretty equally yoked when it comes to food.  Which is a great and terrible thing.  However, I have found things that can be in the house that satisfy him and do not tempt me.  Further more, who in the hell buys 8 quarts of ice cream?  MEN, LOL.  My hubby loves ice cream too but he knows I love it just the same.  I agree with Monarch that while she is watching what she puts in her mouth her significant other should be supportive and eat his ice cream away from the home.  No one NEEDS ice cream!  In fact, even if he was trying to gain weight he could do it in a healthy way.  There is nothing wrong with supporting others goals and wishes even if that means you can't bring home 8 quarts of ice cream.  To be honest, it sounds very selfish :(.  I'm sorry he did that to you.

Ice cream is a treat, not something you stock up on to prepare for a famine!  MEN (LOL).

Bunny,

Please let us know how kitty is doing. I lost my Butter to this in December and my heart goes out to you.

Also, write a letter or call the ER vet's office and file a complaint. Let them know that your hard-earned dollars are now going to be spent at another ER clinic.

To the people who claimed Bunny was unreasonable/uncaring/wanting free services:

I hope you have come back to this post and looked at the additional information provided. All of you were flat out wrong and ridiculous. I've had several cats with urinary problems. Manipulating the bladder and/or penis was always the first thing the vet tried. Not only is it often effective, it is less invasive and painful for the cat than immediatly going for a catheter or surgery.

When Butter had his blockage, they were able to dislodge the blockage with the catheter so he didn't have to have surgery. The vet didn't think he'd be able to survive surgery anyways, so she wanted to delay surgery if at all possible.

 Considering the cat did need extra help (because) the condition was that bad, the original concerned posters were correct.  Clearly the ER vet noted the condition as well but could not communicate with Bunny correctly.  The guy was obviously stressed and handled the situation wrong, he should have given bunny the information she needed.  However, I still hold my ground that you can not make a vet perform a procedure they are not comfortable with.

Side note:

Someone is not a troll if they don't agree with you!  Does everyone live in a glass box around here?  Why can't people be honest with others without people getting emotional?

 

You flat out attacked Bunny accusing her of misconduct when the vet was the culprit. No one expects a vet to perform a procedure if he/she isn't comfortable doing so.

 From her ORIGINAL post (that I made the comments on, mind you) it DID come across that way.  She was upset he would not perform a procedure she wanted him to.  With the information I had at the time, I stand behind what I said.  I do not know bunny, so maybe my direct way with her was not appropriate for her.  However, when you post on an open internet forum that means you want opinions, from everyone.  Not just the nice sugar coated ones, or should we sugar coat them all?  Can no one be honest anymore?  I refuse to lie for the sake of someone I do not know, and if I know someone I refuse to lie.  To each their own.

See, I'm not a Twilight fan, but I absolutely love the Harry Potter series. Read all the books and have been waiting for those last two movies for years!

 Rhys Ifans? I need to google to find out who this is. From reading your post, I need to re-read the Deathly Hallows. I read it the first month the book came out, so it's been a while and I need a refresher.

I can't wait to see the part one of the Deathly Hallows!!! When is the release date?

 Fantastic!  Harry Potter and Twilight are very similar in my book.  I'm shocked you find such distaste for one and love for the other.  It shocks me more that you would not understand the ladies at your work love for the Twilight saga.  I would think someone who enjoys popular culture such as yourself would have more understanding for others with the same interests.

Yeah, right. A teen Vampire series with pin-up bys and no sex before marriage issues and a fantasy/witchcraft saga for children and the rest of the family. Completely the same thing, sure! Just like Moby Dick, actually, now that I'm thinking about it. And the jane Austen books.

 Just because you fail to see my opinion clearly does not make you right.  I don't need to agree with people to feel secure in my thoughts.  *scratches head* HEY, I know you!  You're the one who said I have no tact (in other words).  I find that rather funny...  It goes great with my morning coffee.  I'm happy that you are not able to agree with me on this one.  However, you are talking about the plot and I am talking about a 1000 foot look.  OH and just because your family did not enjoy Twilight does not mean other mothers and daughters did not enjoy it together.

Have a nice day, ignorance is bliss :).

I said you have a scathing style - after you mentioned that you are being misunderstood so often...!! I don't really care about tact, in fact, I even appreciate a bit of abrasiveness in The Lounge. Make it more interesting. You might have noticed that my style can be rather sarcastic.

As to right and wrong - I'm not a teen. I think there are things that are right and wrong in serious matters, I would never bother to apply that to entertainment.

I'm basically being sarcastic about your weird generalization (1000 foot books are really fairly common, they are even published and made into films at the same time, sometimes!) and about you being 'shocked' that someone might dislike the one but not the other.

And I did kind of like the Twilight film, but I watched it with my nephew, not my mom. I agree with Phoebe, though, Rob P. looks rather odd and 40 year olds screaming publicly at a teen is a bit, ahm..unsavory

 I love how people read one sentence from a post and fly with it.  To clarify, I can not understand how someone can be ok with the Harry Potter fans but not understand Twilight fans.  Also, the way the books are marketed are and of the same.  They have the same audience and the same wallets are buying the paraphernalia.  The stories do not have to be the same to create the same feelings of euphoria for their readers.

Also, I'm pretty sure H.P is underage and most the the characters in the movies as well.  HOWEVER, the only underage person in Twilight (the original) was the character playing the shape shifter?  I'm pretty sure his shirt was on and at the time was not a sex symbol for anyone.  The young female models your husbands and significant others ogle at are most certainly around the same age ladies.

I would question the maturity of an adult woman who waits in line for H.P over one who waits in line for Twilight.  We all have our opinions, I don't agree with you - you don't agree with me.  Move on.

Eric Northman from the Sookie Stackhouse series is sooo yummy.  Granted, there are no pictures.  But, that's what my imagination is for.  Second, I would say Eric Northman from True Blood.  He is yummy too. 

 

 

 LOL!  I'm guessing you fancy this Eric Northman character?  I was sort of upset with his first scene for the season opener.  I mean, that basement is GROSS and he was going at her like a jack hammer!  That was a turn off for me.

I know, I can come across that way.  I usually defend the misunderstood, because I'm usually misunderstood. 

which really isn't that surprising considering you scathing style...

Once you've been in The Lounge a bit longer you might understand, why Bunny is being defended the way she is. There aren't many more people with a more caring heart for animals (and humans - even if she does prefer animals, tsk tsk :-D

I like my style!  That's obviously up for debate around here though, LOL.  Sorry, bunny, take what I say with a grain of salt.  However, PLEASE make sure you research why some might feel your first vet might be wrong.

Geesh, I'm usually not so emo... You all are really lucky.  TSK TSK for making me feel bad.
