The quarterback said on Twitter on Saturday he signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, ending months of speculation on his possible path back to the game. “Made the decision today to sign my contract with the CFL and further my football career after a long break,” Manziel wrote. “Very grateful for everyone that’s been supporting me along the way.

By Joan Morris | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: May 18, 2018 at 7:00 am | UPDATED: May 18, 2018 at 7:02 am DEAR JOAN: My neighbors allow their cat to roam free. We have tried to keep him out because they won’t fix him and he sprays everywhere, and now he has a disease, feline herpesvirus. What can I do? I know what to do for my cat, but is there anything I can do to make my neighbors pay for treatment or something? I feel like, if you sent your animal out into the world with rabies, that would be criminal, but what if it’s only a disease that hurts the pets? I am so furious. We are moving soon and I can’t wait to be rid of these irresponsible cat owners. Kitty, my cat, was adopted after her human mom died. She has been healthy and thriving the entire time I’ve had her. We’re moving in less than two months, and this has to happen. I will save her, but is there any way to make the neighbors pay retribution? Kitty’s … [Read more...] about Neighbors’ cat gave my cat herpes. Should they pay the vet bills?

Dawn Paige checked her security cameras after noticing that rubbish bins at her home in Oldbury, West Mids, had been moved in the early hours.

And even Dudley Zoo, located just four miles away, said that it does look like a "big cat" but confirmed they are not missing any animals. The CCTV footage shows the beast - which appears to be around a metre tall - slinking around the bins in the middle of the night.

For a second, forget the credibility Blackhawks forward Alex DeBrincat has built this month as a key contributor to Team USA at the IIHF World Championship in Denmark.DeBrincat sounded more excited to share how he established himself in another sport he plays regularly against three fellow Hawks while passing time at the team hotel during the three-week tournament.“The best pingpong player among us is probably me,” DeBrincat said Wednesday in a phone interview. “(Jordan) Oesterle is pretty good. Kaner is right behind him. But it’s definitely me.”The Year of “The Cat” continues abroad for the brightest spot in a bleak season for the Hawks.While the franchise’s familiar core aged quicker than expected in 2017-18 as the Hawks missed the playoffs for the first time in a decade, DeBrincat grew up fast. He became the first rookie to lead the team in goals since Tuomo Ruutu in 2003-04. Only two NHL rookies scored more than his 28.“On a … [Read more...] about Year of ‘The Cat’ continues as Alex DeBrincat makes Blackhawks proud playing for Team USA
