RE: Is it fair to pursue a relationship abroad, if you have no intention of moving there?

Don't stereotype men looking for love abroad. barf

Some of us can not fit in with the rat race.
And sensible folk look for same age mostly.
I tend to look slightly above my own age.

RE: Do you have MonkeyPox yet? Cases showing up in US and Europe. Looks nasty.

In the last 50 years 53 people had this virus in Europe.
Dont forget more people will have Dengue or malari then this virus....so why they come with this virus.
To make people scary again...
By the way most cases are in Congo.

So what is the matter? Covid not doing enough? So we need to import an African disease. Those pics are half the yuck!scold Gross way worse than chicken pox.
Lets travel more from Nigeria. Good part is it is mostly spread from animal to human..bush meat thing.
Have to come in contact with fluids or wet bedding. Not airborne. And not contagious til symptomatic.
We are now a global world, travelers all over spreading disease. Like TB that was almost gone in the US. And mumps. That is the risk. Person gets to other country before they show symptoms. Ban airplanes!!doh

Sure if you are in the US or first world country, own property, and looking to provide a Green card to someone a third of your age.

No, ycannow is being negative as usual (his speciale).
I think your first reaction to Javisst was the right one; maybe a change of environment will do him good.
Life is short and at one point changing to a slightly different culture could make a lot of sense.
I might do the exact same thing one day.

Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

So what does that make you CC? A cat person, a dog person or and animal person?grin

RE: Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

I have a cat with three legs and the mind of a dog. He's the low maintenance of a cat with the emotional support of a dog, really come into his own since he lost a leg.

Truly sorry about that. Your decision will probably save another cat from the same, I guess....comfort

There's a definite overlap between having kids and pets: you're responsible for another life, but also interact in on a symbiotic level. You know you're only going to share life with them for a season before they move on.

Certainly, my grandchildren have an element of viewing my granddogs like siblings. They're very much a part of team kid, rather than team parent.

One Christmas when my daughter was small and I was struggling for cash, I said I wasn't going to get anythng for the dogs that year. My daughter told me in no uncertain terms she wasn't going to open a single present unless the dogs had something, too. I had to miss a few meals over that bond. roll eyes laugh

RE: Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

Well… if you really want to know.

A few years ago, I’ve been hospitalized. I shared a room with 3 other women and one of them had a cat, which we learned about from her phone conversations with her brother. The woman was single and had her brother come from another town to look after her cat while she was in the hospital.

The brother couldn’t stay long and couldn’t take the cat with him. And we heard the woman screaming into the phone: “Will you get her (the cat) executed only because I have to stay here (in the hospital) for a few days more? She’s young and healthy! It’s about a few more days!”

The female patients united with the nurses and found a temporary home for this cat. For a couple of weeks, it was understood. Meanwhile, the woman was deteriorating and she died within 4 days afterwards. I do not know what happened to the cat. A couple of weeks isn’t the same as taking over the responsibilities for someone’s animal.

Long story short: I gave myself a word that I am not going to get a cat as long as I don’t have a back-up. Right now I don’t. If I die, I’ll die without worrying for my cat’s fate.

Lot of days that the only smile I had was animal related. They support you in ways you don't even realize half the time.

RE: Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

I couldn't imagine not having any animals. Sure the place wouldn't look like a train wreck but it would be soul less. They bring life to the house, If for some reason all my animals were suddenly took away, I really have no idea how I would cope. I don't have any children and at this point in my life, I don't plan on having any so the animals are the closest thing I'll ever have to having kids. I know its not quite the same but its kinda the same when you are a animal person.

It's good that they were so helpful to you, especially during that crucial time. Sweetie keeps me going, even when I don't want to do anything else but mope;-)

RE: Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

Cats... :)

My only cat used to sit on the wardrobe and grunt at passers-by. Scared be-jeezus out of them.

The best cat in the world.

RE: Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

My last cat used to lie on my chest while I lay on my couch, going up and down with my breathing.....laugh

RE: Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

They are like emotional barometers. However they do it, they always know.

RE: Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

RE: Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

I'm basically a cat person but growing up in Manhattan at about 14 I had a wonderful dog named Jackie, a Boston Terrier.

RE: Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

I miss having a dog, or two about the place.

I content myself with two granddogs, a neighbour's scabby cat who has decided that I'm his property and any creaure I can get near enough to make friends with.

I met a pair of 5 month old miniature Dachshunds the other day who squeaked like guinea pigs. I was suspicious. laugh

RE: Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

There was a point in my life years ago I wasn't doing so well. The only thing that kept me going was my cats and dogs. Animals don't judge, they love unconditionally.

RE: Which 'person' are you? Which is your favourite...pet?

Not sure, have to get a king size bed I guess laugh
