I don't know how I'd make it through the day without several peeks in the Cute Pets thread!

Thanks for all the sweet comments. He really is a cutie, I can't imagine how many people must have walked past him at the shelter, how could they resist?! He'd actually even spent a bit of time at their other shelter but no-one wanted him there either, poor baby.
His name was Jet but it sounded weird when we called him so we just modified it a bit, he doesn't respond much to either I have to say! Especially when he escapes and thinks it's fun to play chase through the streets. Any tips on that one?

Here's a horsey pic for NetG. It was on the VisitPA facebook page and made me grin.
Cute! That was similar to the face my horse made this morning when I walked in. I think the boys partied in the barn last night because shortly after Will came out, climbed partway up the feed stall, peeked over at me and started yawning, too. The female horses and cat were all running around making noises at me demanding food and wide awake!

He is adorable! How's he escaping? Over a fence, through a gate, out a door? My old dog Cocoa used to push her way out doors if you didn't pay attention, so it took adjusting to the fact there was now a dog who ran if possible and not letting her out. We have to adapt faster than they do, however that means adapting. (Cocoa eventually learned to come when called... but she was a VERY slow learner!)

Who could resist this hunk of feline beefcake? I actually had to back up to get this pic, he has no sense of personal space.

What a handsome fella! Looks like you have a mini striped mountain lion on your hands.

My Willow is the same way (personal space). She just walks all over you, even if you're on your side, when in the bed. "Nothing to see here, just settle down so I can lay down on you mom!"

Dora has a smiliar issue but will only lie on me if I'm on my back. Right there on my chest, in my face. SMH.

Haha, that's funny. Corona pretty much has to be near me or on me at all times. I sleep on my side; he will sleep on top of my hip or he'll get under the covers and spoon with me. If I roll over, he just hangs on for dear life until I get settled again. He sits on the edge of the tub between the shower curtain and liner and watches me shower. Creeper.

When I go to bed Eddy has to snuggle up right behind me so I can't even turn over. Then in the morning he climbs over me from wherever he's moved to over night and whacks me in the face before curling up under my chin.

Daft kitty.

So, Corona was an adult stray when I got him, so he's always obsessed with food. Before I started feeding the two of them separately, he would eat way too much and started getting tubby (his nickname is Tubs). So now he's on a diet and so I think he's hungry a lot. My friend was over the other day with a fast-food burger and Corona ran off with the top bun when my friend got up to get a drink. Then another day I had a meatball sub from Subway. I left the balled-up wax paper (with sauce on it) on the table and Corona ran off with it. He growled at me when I tried to get it back!

I'm starvin' mom! My friend's cat Evinrude would steal any bread that wasn't nailed down or put away, the whole loaf. He's a big boy tho and was adopted as a kitten, he just likes bread.

I had a cat that was like that with rice. One time we got chinese and accidentally left the rice in the kitchen. By the time we noticed she had already scarfed down the whole box.

Sasha likes leafy greens and onions. The greens are fine, but the onions, ugh. I wish she'd stop. She likes them enough to dig them of the trash and they make her throw up every time.

I have no tips for the escapist Jed, but wow, he is so pretty!

My dog Blackjack was also adopted and his orignal name was "Toby", a name I hate with a passion because I associate it with the movie/book Roots.. I called him Blackjack the minute we got him and he responded to it right away.

I like to think he likes the name I gave him better than the one he had before. He was also an older dog who'd been at the shelter for about 10 days before I came along to get him.

I've had dogs who were runners. It was both maddening and terrifying.

The best thing I can suggest is to never stop rewarding Jed for coming back to you when you call, and never, ever, express your annoyance while pursuing him, whether in your voice or your manner. I know that's close to impossible, but I had the most luck when I pretended we were going for a run together, and there was food involved.

Keep us posted.

Our family dog Cece likes to escape. She thinks it's a game, but we are all so terrified when she does it. And it seems like she doesn't run out of energy fast enough. No tips, except to watch Jed like a hawk whenever any door is open. And I mean like a damn hawk. That's the best solution we came up with.

Our last dog was also a runner but at least he was sneaky about it and would disappear when we weren't looking (usually when we were gardening and gates were opening and closing all the time) and would always come back when we called him. Jed is blatant about it - stood at the top of the drive the other day (SO opened the garage door and he was out in seconds) looked at us and just ran. SO went after him but he was gone, I got in the car and followed and found him in the next street, luckily he likes the car and when he saw and heard me he jumped in. Definitely terrifying. I guess vigilance is the thing (but we always thought we were vigilant before!).
Discovered today that he doesn't like people knocking on the door or dogs walking past the house. Lots to work on it seems!

I had a rott that was an sneaky escape artist, but luckily not a runner. She just really liked laying on the front porch. She never went anywhere else.
