Dreadful sorry about the intrusive Tripod ads. We have pulled up stakes and moved to an ad-free environment*.

Join us in our new space by closing the panel on the left then clicking this link:

If the unwanted sidebar window on the left opens up along with it, you can get rid of the offending portion by clicking the "x" in its upper right-hand corner. Click on the actual window on the left, not on the explanatory graphic below.

* Ok, there are a few small ads at the bottom of the main page, BUT Top5 Pets directly benefits from them. We keep them unobtrusive.

 9> Well, when YOU mark a website, your keyboard doesn't end 
    up all sticky and smelling of ammonia.
 8> All entries on your Palm Pilot to-do list are "eat", 
    "sleep" and "lick self."
 7> Stacks of paper spewing out of your printer read the same
    thing over and over: "All scraps and no walks makes Rover
    a dull dog."
 6> E-mailed bomb threats to the Spay/Neuter Clinic have been 
    traced to your account.
 5> You wouldn't think it would be possible to have nude jpegs
    of the sock puppet, but there they are.
 4> The screen is coated with cat hair because Mister 
    No-Opposable-Thumbs can't get the cap off the anti-static
 3> Dozens of new bookmarks to skinhead organizations, and your
    hairless cat's been acting a bit surly of late.
 2> Your hamsters have given up their exercise wheel in favor of
    line dancing.
