    Featured Picture of the Month Competition July 2021: Sitting Pretty

    That's one of those micro spy drones. They cost like a gazillion dollars. That thing is gonna cause a lot of gas as it restarts to find a way out the other end. Space Force Captain says: "Pilot, explain to me what were you doing buzzing a cat? You lost a gazillion dollar space craft." Maverick...

    HELP ASAP!!

    In my past, I had two cats get into it. My snotty female ended up scratching the large strong male's cornea. He was not fond of her for a couple days. Luckily I noticed the eyes watering and got him to Vet for repairs.

    I feel bad at neutering my cat

    Kosta said: "Vet told us to wait this pee sign as Bengals need to grow as much as possible, and neutering could interfere with his growth." As a mix, Bengals are primarily domestic cats. In domestic cats early spay and neutering can make the cat a little bit taller and longer. This has to do...

    I feel bad at neutering my cat

    First, let me help with this feeling. "Still I feel really really bad at doing this," Through the years I have helped one way or another many pets become neutered to become better pets for their family. I can assure you, your stuff is not going to shrivel up and fall off for helping this young...

    Remembering Krista

    Casper would make a similar clicking noise the last two years of his long life. The best I could guess was his top saberteeth (his were not canines) would shift behind his lower teeth. Then he would open slightly, dragging them upward as his lower jaw realigned to the rear. This would give two...

    Question of the Day - Monday, July 19, 2021

    My favorite trees grow to the east of my home. I don't like the ones that grow to the west between my home and the view of the bay and harbor.

    Remembering Krista

    I am far from being an expert on anything. The information I provided about the learning types was a summary of a class for instructors I was able to take 50 years ago. The course stressed that using multiple tools leveraging different strengths could help the overall class learn better. A...

    Remembering Krista

    DaftCat75 said "Otherwise, it's just vague flashes like shadows in my mind's eye. Like a line drawing with captions: "This is my best attempt at a Krista."" We tend to learn in three major ways. 1) Auditory - Words including written or spoken 2) Visual - Pictures, graphs, charts 3) Kinesthetic...

    Corona Virus Now Spreading

    I hope your Dad got checked. That can also be a sign of blood loss from other sources, like digestive tract cancer and ulcers. I always have large hematomas under the skin from capillary leakage. When I go up in the space ship to get probed (colonoscopy) or have surgery, I negotiate with the...

    Corona Virus Now Spreading

    " they didn't want people who weren't vaccinated to be obvious and possibly targeted " Personally, I don't see this as a problem. Nobody I know of believes most the anti-masker/anti-vaxxers are wearing masks. There are vax'd people, like myself still wearing masks. I appreciate our folks who...

    Corona Virus Now Spreading

    LA vaccination % is 69% for both shots for 16 yo and older.. Still need to get those 2nd shots into arms. If you have seen 50%, possibly that is including under 16 years of age. Motivation to remask is more related to the sudden increases in cases (210% in 2 weeks). Almost all of which are...

    Corona Virus Now Spreading

    I am not sure about blood thinners and cytokine. Yet inflammation is an immune system response. ASA (Aspirin) helps thin the blood, yet it also helps reduce inflammation like my arthritis (old guy shoulder stuff). Clopedogrel (Plavix) thins the blood, yet works more as an anti-sticky.

    Corona Virus Now Spreading

    There is a UK summary in link below. It suggests some anti-coagulant products were stopped as a treatment. Could an everyday drug stop dangerous Covid complications? | BHF Aspirin and Clopedogrel are not anti-coagulant. NIH released similar statements about the same time. Full-dose blood...
