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.)

Gromit

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...

Little House

I read recently that the book series is being banned in many schools and libraries because of its “racist depiction of Native Americans.” :(

Gender neutral dress code

Other than the wording to avoid specifically mentioning “girls’ attire” or “boys’ attire,” I don’t really see what is so remarkable about this. I will say that they are less restrictive than most...

Hidden Logos

When he was about 6, my son commented on the arrow in FedEx one day while we were driving past a FedEx truck. He was always a visual / spatial kid so it shouldn’t have surprised me, but I couldn’t...
