    Question of The Day. Saturday 24th of October.

    I shove a paper clip into the seam, and put a bit of sticky foam insulation around the nosepiece and that helps. But still not great. Hahaha, I'm watching the new season right now!

    The "what's On Your Mind?" Thread -2020

    Tomcats nip easily, I've found. Maybe they get overly "excited", idk. Hopefully that will improve once he's neutered.

    The "what's On Your Mind?" Thread -2020

    A possibility! But they aren't putting up the snow leopards, pallas cats, caracals, cheetahs, etc. Part of the sales pitch for nighttime events is to be able to see more natural behavior from nocturnal animals. Plus they're limiting the number of tickets this year for COVID reasons so crowding...

    Question of The Day. Saturday 24th of October.

    Ugh those poor animals. I just snipped the strings automatically, I didn't know they actually were causing trouble. My grandma's cat (who lives with my mom since my grandma died) was badly tangled in a 6-pack ring when we found her, so now I automatically snip any and all enclosed things before...

    Strange food you've eaten or been offered . . .

    I've had mutton, which tastes kind of goaty. Is goat stronger than that?

    Must I Force My Lady Cat To Love Her Teen Kittens?

    As long as she's not chasing them away from food/water and litterboxes, or attacking them unprovoked, or making them cower in the basement, they're doing just fine. In the wild she'd be having another litter and would have to chase off all the tomcats for the babies' safety. At some point she'll...

    Strange food you've eaten or been offered . . .

    Sorry I didn't see this before. I don't think they're usually boiled without the shells, not sure what would happen if they were. I don't think you can, they'd really be just WAY too salty. Raw peanuts in the shell are what's traditionally used, although in this recipe they said they used...

    It's good for burns. Maybe put them in the freezer until someone gets burned? They can also be rooted like other succulent leaves if you want to have more (you could give them away!). The zoo announced their annual Zoo Boo, but mentioned that the tigers will be put in their backstage...

    Question of The Day. Saturday 24th of October.

    I wish I didn't wear glasses. My mask choices have to depend on how good it is at not fogging my glasses rather than how cute it is, lol.

    Question of The Day. Saturday 24th of October.

    There is some thought that wearing a mask helps you get a lower viral load so that you're less likely to get seriously sick even if exposed, but, yeah, mostly it's to prevent your spittle from spraying all over everybody else.

    Question of The Day. Saturday 24th of October.

    I have about a zillion cloth masks---either I bought them because they looked good or someone made them and gave them to me----but if I have to wear one for any amount of time it's a disposable. I find them much easier to breathe in. The chemical smell is a thing, but a drop of essential oil...

    Venting....

    Matted hair can trigger a CPS visit. I don't know if she's physically going to school but if so, the teacher might call it in. Maybe that'll get them motivated. My niece is on the spectrum and doesn't like to have anyone mess with her hair, so I know how complicated it can be. But once a child...

    Question of the Day, Friday, October 23

    When my dad wasn't home, which was most of the time, because that's the way the Navy works, we ate wherever we darn well wanted. On top of the table, under the table, out on the fire escape, in the hallway, in the bedrooms, whatever. My mom's only rule was not on the carpet (only the living room...

    Six month old cat is GIANT for a domestic short hair. Should I be concerned?

    Oh, another funny thing about my boy is that his poor mama was only 6 pounds! And she had 4 massive boy kittens, I'm not even sure where she put them, lol. And she must have had very rich milk because they were FAT kittens. Poor girl. Good thing she was spayed after that.

    Six month old cat is GIANT for a domestic short hair. Should I be concerned?

    Normal-ish. I had one who was 10 pounds at 7 months, when he was neutered. He maxed out at 17 pounds, probably should have been 16 though (he was a teensy bit chubby), so he wasn't abnormally huge or anything. Just a fine big boy!
