While we think all of our patients are stars, we were particularly pleased to treat YouTube sensation Clyde at our Willowbrook hospital. Clyde is the star of the popular "kitten tease" video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBbHRaNNBuY) that has been viewed more than 10 million times! This sweet, goofy pup had a run-in with a car but we stitched him up and he's doing just fine. So happy we got a chance to meet you and your awesome family, Clyde!

His new house is coming soon to the Fifth Ward! "A self-described “black sheep” in the design community, Ng recently bought a new lot in the Fifth Ward and is starting work on his next experimental house. He wants to further explore the use of rental units for additional income, especially for his architecture students who pay costly rent to live close to school or else sacrifice with a long commute." Houstonia Magazine #nickelproud #renaissance

    With 'Shotgun Chameleon,' a Houston Architect Designs for the Future
    Zui Ng, design principal of ZDES Design-Build and local professor of architecture, first conceived of his "Shotgun Chameleon" house a decade ago when he entered it in an international competition that sought replacement designs for homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. He won, and 10 years later, the architecture world is still taking notice.

BARC added an event.

Visit our #BARCMobile Adoptions Trailer at the Rocky & Maggie's Grand Opening Event this weekend! $1 Adoption Fees for all cats and kittens! $5 Adoption Fees for dogs 5 months and older! $75 Adoption Fees on all puppies! To adopt, you must be 18 years of age and you will need a state-issued photo id with current address. If the address on your id does not match your current address, please bring a utility bill with current address. You will complete an application at the Offsite Adoption location. Please check the pet policies at your residence, including any breed or size restrictions, prior to visiting the event. Your application will be reviewed to ensure that you can provide a loving home with the proper environment and care needed for the pet you have selected. Please allow at least one hour to meet the animals and complete the adoption process. Be prepared to spend some time at the event--pet ownership is a lifelong responsibility so we want you to spend time getting to know the animals, and we want to help you to make a choice that is a good fit for you! Our adoption fees include spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccinations, microchipping, rabies vaccination/city license, and more! Adopters are responsible for booster shots to complete the vaccination series and registering the microchip. The number of boosters required depends on the age of the animal and veterinarian recommendations. We also offer half price adoptions any day to active military and veterans as part of our Veterans Companion program, and animals over 2 years old are free to qualified adopters over 60 as part of our Seniors for Seniors program (city residents must pay $5 for city license). Please come prepared to take home your new pet--animals that are already spayed/neutered are able to go home the same day with their adopters. Otherwise, they will stay at the shelter and are scheduled for surgery on the next available weekday, and you can pick up that same afternoon. BARC provides a cardboard carrier for kitties and a leash to help restrain dogs but you may need a travel crate or kennel for safe transport. Our shelter is located at 3300 Carr St, Houston 77026 (just north of downtown off Hwy 59 at the Collingsworth exit). BARC is open for adoptions every day from noon to 5:00 PM.

I have no idea what's going on in Lakewood but we have had shots fired two nights in a row last night over 20 shots were fired by the 8000 block of Oak Knoll and the night before last it was 12 shots fired at the end of the 8000 block of Linda Vista. The problem is when you call the police they want your home address or they won't come. I went through this a couple of times and just stopped calling them because I don't want you to show up in my house to show a shooter where I live it doesn't even make sense and then why won't you show up if I won't give you my address the shots were still fired somebody could still be laying dead in an alley somewhere I'm confused.

Some pets can suffer from stress and panic in the absence of their owners. This challenge is called separation anxiety, and it can be common in both cats and dogs. Dr. Jill Sackman, head of BluePearl's behavioral medicine service, talks about the signs, causes and treatments of separation anxiety.

    Separation anxiety in dogs and cats
    We love our pets for many reasons, including their loyalty and devotion to us. They are often happiest when standing faithfully by our side, and a little sad to see us leave home for any reason. However, some pets can suffer from stress and panic in the absence of their owners.
