    One almost needs health insurance for one's pets.

    I agree. All goes well as long as the pets don´t fall ill.

    I got one for my cat, I was going to get one for my dog too but he was to old. My brother has two cats and one of them was hit by a car and if he had been insured it would have been cheap but they paid a whole lot to get him back to normal.

    Thankfully the vets in the Cayman Islands are reasonable.

    Vet fees are not so expensive here either. But depending on what treatment the animal needs the end result can be very expensive.

    True, my bills have been reasonable. I should say my dogs have always been healthy.

    This Is One of the Tiniest Ancient Birds, and It Lived Alongside Giant Dinosaurs

    " About 127 million years ago, tiny birds the size of grasshoppers lived alongside some of the biggest animals to walk the Earth, including the long-necked sauropods, a new study finds.

    When it was alive, this less-than-2-inch-long (5 centimeters) chick would have weighed just 0.3 ounces (8.5 grams) — about the weight of one-fifth of a golf ball. That makes it one of the smallest birds from the dinosaur age on record, the researchers said."

    So birds didn't come from dinosaurs.

    It seems they evoluted separately, Yes/No. But I never heard of that small bird before.
