Uh-oh, we're hoarders. Four cats, two dogs, and two horses.

And my friend better just go ahead and turn herself in for animal cruelty. She has six dogs, three cats, a leopard gecko, about 20 cows (they're all pets, not for meat, so I guess they count), seven horses, and a donkey. THE HORROR!

Some points if people want to call:

Next hearing for this is planned for Tuesday but they keep moving it... as of right now this is the plan:

Mar 8 2011 2:00PM
Stratton Building
Room 413
Springfield, IL
HB1080, HB1166, HB0240, HB1247, HB0006
Is this something that out of state letters would help or hurt?

~Christina--Mom to:

Pickles & Kiwi--3 yr old white winged parakeets

Hmmm... just my cornsnakes alone make me a hoarder. I have seven of those! (Nine if you count the two I have on loan this season...)

Add those in to the dog, two cats, and four sugar gliders... well, I guess we're just a mess!

I don't think letters or calls from out of state will help as much as in state, but I don't think they will hurt. You can always point out how you'll obviously never move to the state if it passes and you will think twice before doing business in the state.

Pat Verschoore is the one who filed the bill and has gotten a LOT of calls. A few weeks ago he said from all the feedback he's gotten he doesn't want to call the bill anymore. It's still on the agenda though and every time the move the meetings it stays right on the agenda, so who knows.
