Another Link - No HR 669

I know, I know, I'm terrible. Another link. What an asshole. Last one, then back to normal.
So there's a bill before congress (voted on tomorrow) to essentially ban all non-US-native pets. This includes almost all fish, most reptiles and amphibians, most birds, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, and ferrets. The ban could screw a lot of pet owners and a lot of pet shops (not to mention this blog which would have a significantly reduced pet population to choose from). So you know, if you feel strongly enough, go here and send an email or letter or make a call. It took me less than two minutes to send an email.
Thanks for putting up with my linking and my lack of Things Pets Do. Back to normal soon.


  1. The reason? I tell you our lawmakers scare me to pieces.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. thanks for letting us know about this. I'll check into it. I'm afraid next time, it will be people.

  3. I haven't heard anything about this. Which is typical of the way the lawmakers work.

    I'm looking into it too. Thanks for the link.

  4. Sandee: Yeah, they really are frightening sometimes.
    Margo: Yeah seriously.
    Vic: No problem. And isn't it great how'd never know what the hell they're doing unless you actively look for it? And by great I mean shitty.
