There are times when we experience situations with our pets, or the pets of others, that truly have us wondering what happened. Sometimes these experiences are funny, sometimes amazingly touching and sometimes just bizarre.  Think back - do you have one of these stories you can share?

Let me lead off -

Somehow I managed to sleep in until about 10:30 on Valentine's Day morning. (Ah - the joys of retirement!)

What woke me was a polite mew? from my cat, LeeLoo. Figuring it was the usual alert for food, imagine my surprise when I spotted a small heart sticker stuck dead center on his forehead! I didn't believe what I was seeing.  Happy Valentine's Day!

LeeLoo and I do playtimes and opening the daily mail is one of his favorites. He loves envelopes and will proudly wear them whenever I put them on his head. I had gotten a few Valentines the day before and left the envelopes on the bed for him to play with. They were festooned with Valentine hearts. The rest was just dumb luck....

Oh this was adorable to find! I have never poked my nose in this forum and I am so happy I did tonight. What beautiful LeeLoo stories!

Thanks, Michelle! I know you have a pet or two - do you have a story to share?

Thanks, Mel! Bet we could write many such stories from our shared experiences on Cornell's CONE program! Yes? laugh

 Got anything to relate?
