    Another suggestion, is that you should wear something reflective or carry a flashlight as well, in case you need to step away from the glow of that streetlight.

    It's colder here in Northern Minnesota for November too. I'm guessing that your dogs are practically naked considering how warm it usually is in NC this time of year.

    The portion I underlined and emboldened in your post is kind of the point of this whole discussion. She is more at risk for actually having ebola than anyone because she is a healthcare worker who...

    I'm very sorry you got hurt, but I also feel really bad for the dog. If he was abused, I'm guessing that when you kicked at him, it triggered the actual bite. He'd probably been there - done that...

    I agree...and honestly, why is that looked on as so awful? She went to a 3rd world country to treat ebola, I'm sure she saw things that were FAR worse than a camping toilet there.

    That is a seriously bad idea, to let an old ornery barn cat have at her. More than likely, she would hate cats and you'd have no hope of her tolerating them.
