Friends characters

Phoebe first (because I think she’s the funniest) and Joey next were my favorite characters.

New Kitten Advice

Thank you for taking in that kitty-baby.

1) She should know what to do as far as the litter box; it’s instinctive.

2) Since I don’t know how little she is, I wouldn’t recommend doing any...

Moving with a cat

My sister is a cat specialist vet, so this advice comes via her.

1) Cats get very stressed when facing a move, and an already-anxious cat even moreso. As soon as things start changing around your...

Commercials that make me laugh

There are two I can think of:

1) The Cigna commercials with all the TV doctors...McDreamy stating, ”I have no idea what I’m doing; I’m just a TV doctor.” I laugh every time they say, “Doctor...

Minimum wage

No worries, Gromit. I was just pointing out the difference between where we live. I requested $50 per day, and she was fine with that. (Now I’m wondering if I could have asked more! Oh well.)

Actually, in my state, minimum wage is $7.25 per hour, so that would put it at approximately $50 for a 7-hour day.

$50 per day is also coincidentally what I felt would make it worth my while to...
