Sandy's Corner - A Horse With WHAT?

Yes, it's true. Sad, but true. Random beautiful non-Teddy horse

Teddy the horse has hay fever. Ananova tells us:
If Teddy is exposed to hay or straw, he starts coughing and wheezing as if he were having an asthma attack.

Owner Samantha Ashby, 19, also has to damp down his feed to get rid of any dust spores, reports the Mirror.

She said: "Straw and hay are banned from his stable. If he is exposed to the dust spores, he looks really pitiful and very chesty."
The poor lad sleeps on shredded newspaper.

Why, you may ask, am I even posting about Teddy? Well, I promised Sandy I would make special posts for her, as she's about to undergo some discomfiting stuff soon. Besides, just like Teddy the horse, Zingiber the overweight snoring feline lump also suffers from allergies. Unfortunately, we think he's allergic to cat dander. Since he produces large quantities of the vile stuff himself, you could say he was allergic to himself, I guess. It gives him sleep apnea, too. He snores something terrible. It wakes me up at night.

So I feel for Teddy. Deeply.

I love to hear your comments about Zingiber and your other critters! Such a great cat, but wouldn't you know he comes equipped with his own problems. Poor baby. Allergic to himself!? LOL at the image of him snoring enough to wake you up.

Thanks for thinking of me, Political Cat!

I really do shy away from the depressing stuff lately. It's good to find sites that amuse or entertain or educate.
