concerned with young cats weight

I feel like all my posts are about cats, whether they are mine or someone else, so my username is becoming more fitting:

Anyways, I have two cats (litter-mates that are almost 2 years old). One has always been skinny and the other has been a big boy, although both are fed the same amount. Lately, I have noticed the bigger cat has become skinnier (without putting him on a diet or increasing play time) and it has me concerned because it is a noticeable difference in size where I can see his hip bones and he stomach almost "indents" in....

Gift card expirations

Does the law apply to private establishments or just big box retailers? I want on the Consumer of Division Affairs Web site and it did not specify types of businesses, so I'm hoping it applies to all.

I have a gift card from a privately-owned business--I don't want to say because I'll probably call them--that clearly states that it expires one date from year of issuance. If the terms are spelled out, I guess I'm out of luck. It's just over a year old.

Pets "free to good home" - Advice

I am not on here to start a war or point fingers at those who have listed a pet as "free to good home" but I couldn't help but notice that there are currently two dogs under classifieds listed as free. Please, please, please if you are re-homing your pet, for their safety, require some kind of re-homing fee! Even if it's $75 or $100. Do your research, all you have to do is Google it... Dogs that are listed as free end up in the wrong hands way too often. Just recently here in hackettstown a man got... More

Road Conditions 3/3/15

Just got home , I work in sussex county, just take it easy, I witnessed a jeep grand Cherokee sliding to the other side of the road in 206, good thing it didn't cause an accident, and by quick check in Hackettstown, a Nissan sentra on the side of the road,

I believe towns don't have much salt, so just just drive safly please. Do it for the sake of people that love you.
