So now I know why Dutch and Maggie have been walking around the house humming "California Dreamin' ":
Our Legislature took time out from the state budget crisis to pass a bill giving California pet owners the right to set up a legally enforceable trust to care for dogs, cats, horses or other animals.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the bill, SB685, last week. It takes effect Jan. 1.
Before now, pet trusts in California were honorary, meaning they could not be legally enforced.
My cats mean a lot to me, but honestly. I don't even care what happens to any of you after I'm gone.
