Re: “Why is it so hard for dog owners to rent in Halifax?

I called one and she was the manager and said she was the only one in the building with a dog because it was in her contract. So give us a contract and if my dog does damage I pay the damage. The other thing to the person that said pets are a luxury, i hope your thankful that you don't have PTSD or anything that you don't need the help of a dog. We own our own home and my husband got sick, so now we need 1 level living and my dog is a 13 year old Chihuahua, smaller than most cats and uses a litter like a cat. My dog doesn't go out so no one will be afraid. SORRY but some people have opinions about things they know nothing about

Re: “Halifax‚Äôs feral cat crisis

People who assume that feral cats are not affectionate or cannot be domesticated are absolutely wrong. I have two feral cats who, after living their first 5 months outdoors, now live entirely indoors with me and they are affectionate, cuddly, playful, and just like other cats in their behaviour except that they are nervous of unfamiliar people and loud noises. There is a feral cat rescue organization in Windsor, Ontario called CARA (Cat Advocacy and Rescue Association) which traps, sterilizes, treats, houses, domesticates, and eventually adopts out exclusively feral cats. These cats make wonderful pets as any other cat does. So, please, people, drop the assumptions and base statements on fact. Even adult ferals who have spent many years outdoors can be very affectionate with humans, even though they may prefer to live primarily outdoors with access to the indoors on a voluntary basis. I have experienced this as well. An adult feral was so closely bonded with me that no-one who saw us together would have believed that she was a feral cat. She played with toys with me, she slept on my lap, rubbed noses with me . . . . She was the best pet one could ask for. I also take issue with the classification of feral cats as a 'problem'. The problem, as others have stated, is for the cats themselves who suffer because of human neglect and even abuse toward them. The idea of setting them loose in a field of rats is selfish and cruel as rats can cause significant harm to cats if bitten and can even transmit deadly diseases to them. It is the idiots who cause the feral cat crisis who should be maligned, not the feral cats. And, yes, as stated in another post, the picture in the article is obnoxious, as is the idea of killing feral cats. Let's drop the veiled, deceptive language of "humanely euthanizing" ferals and call it what it is, which is killing innocent animals to satisfy the preferences and convenience of certain humans who prefer birds and small rodents to wild cats, who are also part of 'wildlife' and should not be categorized as an enemy to these other species. It is all part of the natural food chain and cats have as much right to that as any other species. It is humans who are the problem in this situation. Humans cause species extinction. Who is calling humans to account? Seriously, you want to pick on innocent, struggling cats? Look in the mirror first.

Re: “Six beaches worth the drive

Please write/phone/etc. your HRM councillor and your MLA to explain to them the importance of being able to access these beaches by public transit. Otherwise, they are off limits to a significant portion of the income and sales tax-paying population. A morning and afternoon run each summer day in good weather might help.

Re: “The curse of Bill Lynch

I was told by my family as a kid. That the fair was cursed by a native years ago. My grand dad uses to work for him..setting up rides. And hauling them all around to exibations. I was told the person was upset with him. And curses the fair so everytime they set it up and tore it down it would rain.

Re: “Why is it so hard for dog owners to rent in Halifax?

I'm looking for a 2 bedroom apartment in lower sackville or dartmouth reasonably priced 1000 to 1200. With washer and dryer in unit but everytime i look at 1 at the end they say no pets. Don't landlords realise pets are companions for people. I don't know what to do.

Heavy metals are my concern and I cannot find anywhere an analysis of the product showing it's content and heavy metal concentration. How can a product be sold without listing the content of the product.

Re: “We bought a church

Lovely story ... unfortunate significant error. The founders and descendants of the New Light Baptist Church landed and erected the church in lower Jeddore Harbour, not Musquodoboit Harbour. Has the church been moved to Musquodoboit Harbour?

Re: “New year, same you

Does anyone in Halifax understand sarcasm? Or is it only those who read The Coast that don't get it? Mind you, I was commenting on a Disqus board when one of the mods insisted that I put /s after my comment to indicate I was being sarcastic. Dear sweet Jesus...

Re: “New year, same you

Like diets, purging, cleansing and other assorted short-term fixes will do no one any good. We will fail to keep our New Year's resolutions, grow fat and eat meat. Horrified by the fact that we are human, we will simply grow fatter, eat more meat and die unhappy. Or, we could simply accept the fact that we are what we are, that there is no God and enjoy life. But that's all radical nonsense, right?
