    Not to make light of the potential seriousness of an infection... but ... don't you think the media has been giving a little too much coverage of this monkeypox thing? Personally I just think they like saying "moneypox". Monkeypox...monkeypox...monkeypox.....Mooonkey-pox.... Miiinkey-pox. I could go on all day!:roll

    Is that pic "the worst case scenario"? Would anyone know what it looks like in the beginning stages?

    I was thinking that this is what happens when people are hell bent on having the most exotic or different pet on the block/neighborhood. Should be happy to go rescue a poor kitty or doggy from the ASPCA. Leave the little praire dog in the wild and the African rat in Africa where they belong.

    Monkey pox might be funny when you aren't exposed. But when it's your neighbor who has it, or the pet store you visited a week ago, it puts things into proper prospective. West Nile Virus is in the same area. How about the killer bees. I agree about the exotic pets. Stupid. Why not stick to the hamsters, cats, and dogs? Why did it have to go into prairie dogs, zambian rats and ferrets?

    But it's going to stay according to the CDC. Other carriers are squirrils. I have probably 75 that eat all my pecans, eat my bird food and sit on top of the shop chittering down at me. Many are friendly enough to get close. I think I'll stand away for awhile.
