Apparently D.C. Missed The “Cats don’t like tin foil” Memo

My guy, the Number One Undisputed Vet In The Nation Ray Cahill with some sage advice on how to keep D.C. from tearing up the couch right here:




Ray is the man.  If you have a pet here’s the business info-

COVID UPDATE: We are open! Although our hours have temporarily shifted to 8a-4p Mon-Thurs and 7a-3p Fri. We are currently closed Saturdays. Also, we have switched to a “curbside” model where we have clients call the hospital when they arrive and are then given instructions on how to safely transport their pet to the designated area in the hospital for their exams, diagnostics and treatments. Many routine services and elective surgeries are currently not available because of the impact the pandemic has had. Please know that we are working our hardest to do the best we can and are prioritizing the most needy patients. We are immensely grateful for your patience and understanding during these trying times. Please stay well.

Visit the AVMA website here for more information for COVID-19 FAQs for pet owners.

IN GRATITUDE pop up rally photos from Charles Esdaile

I hope you’ve had a great week.
Cape Ann Museum sponsored “In Gratitude: Pop Up Road Rally” for the Frontline Heroes was a huge success. We are so grateful to our local leaders and members of the community who came out in support of each other and contemporary art on Cape Ann. This is a remarkable place!!!
Stay safe,

COVID Cancellations from Thacher Island Association

I think it’s going to be the summer of dashed hopes….

Recently posted to the Thacher Island Facebook page:

The Thacher Island Association has made the difficult decision to close BOTH Straitsmouth and Thacher Islands to visitors for the 2020 season.

Kayaks and other types of watercraft will not be allowed to land, and visitors will not be permitted to explore the islands.

The Thacher and Straitsmouth launch service is being suspended for the entire season.

The 2020 Lighthouse Cruise has been cancelled.

The Thacher Island Association is already planning to welcome you back to the islands in 2021 and we hope to see you then. In the meantime, please enjoy the videos and historic photos on our website, and have a safe and healthy summer.
