    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I have three goldfish, two snails, a mouse, and a cat. I did not get them all at once. I got one fish five weeks ago, two fish and two snails two days ago, the mouse earlier to day and the cat four years ago in march of 2011. the fish and the snails are night owls. the cat acts like a dog by walking on the leash and playing fetch and loves to chew on bones. the mouse acts like a cat, burying its potty business in its cage. do i take them to a pet physciatrist if there is such a thing or what? I am confused

    Horseride,

    Where's the horse? That's quite a menagerie you've got! Not sure I see any psychological pathology there. No need to be confused; spend some time at my house and you'll see much the same behaviors!

    Be well, Dr. Ernie
