Once again, I am up early because of feline behavior. I heard this low, not quite silent growling, and felt something slowly climb over me, and settle down where one pillow overhung another. The growl got a bit louder. I reached out, and felt a small muscular body, grabbed it... Continue reading

I have Feliway diffusers, but with the wide open floor plan, power outlet locations leave much to be desired. Visited eBay seller, and got some Feliway spray. Two bottles to use in the heavy cat traffic areas. Continue reading

Last night, I decided to forego the "Leonardo Da Vinci" special on SBS because I was just that tired. For this wisdom, I was woken up by not so melodious sound of Ziggy and Trance in a throw down at 2am. I thought those pheromone calming collars were supposed to... Continue reading

Trance is a bit sulky with me right now, as a few mornings ago, I walked up to her, and as she was being lovey, I put a collar with a few small bells on it around her neck. She went nuts. Acrocatics at its best. She's not 100% used... Continue reading

How many school kids, almost babies, need to be slaughtered before they stop taking money from a glorified gun club for political favors? Does it have to their own children and grand children before they wise up? How many towns in Texas have to be almost blown off a map... Continue reading

It's not any deep dark secret that Ziggy does not want or even like having Trance in 'her' house. But this is just mind blowing. I saw Ziggy come into my study. She jumped up on the sofa, and instead of just curling up to snooze, she sat, with front... Continue reading

Yesterday, with me babysitting, err catsitting, Ziggy GLARED at Trance, but no sound FX, no attempt to attack. Trance deliberately kept her eyes averted because had she had returned the stare, Ziggy would have taken that as act of aggression, and I'm quite sure fur would have flown. This morning...

I have been posting for 2 years on a thread I started on the Adobe Forums about CS6 Bridge being so slow. Some twit decided to say he didn't feel like wading through 4 pages/130 posts to see if he could help. I asked him "Then why did you bother... Continue reading

Was woken up this morning by the sound of rummaging around on the windowsill. I could tell it was Trance rummaging around, because I could hear things being shifted and walked over, but no tag/bell noise which would have indicated Loki or Keito. it's good to know that even with... Continue reading

I don't get sick often. And when I say sick, I don't mean allergies, or headache/migraine, but sick. Fever, chills, cough, body aches etc etc. For the past week, I have been sick. Sicker than I have been in years. Part of the problem might be because I don't get... Continue reading

I caught Wing 's cold/flu, and it was really hammering me. I swear that even my hair hurt. A dry hacking cough caused by a throat tickle for 2 solid days have left my ribs extremely sore, to the point I wondered if you could break a rib coughing. Yesterday,... Continue reading

"This isn't the moggie you're looking for" Wing and I were in our bedroom, and we hear cat fight screech noise. We quickly go out to break up possible dust up and Ziggy, with tail inflated, runs past us. (Gee, think she knew she was being naughty?) We check on... Continue reading

Although I have most of my apps restored via GooglePlay, one of them seems to have vanished. I went to the app author's site, Ximad, and saw the app was listed there, and sent my details of original purchase. The reply was "That app is no longer available on GooglePlay."... Continue reading

Yes, you're skilled, but I really wish you would NOT catch large wood roaches, bring them indoors then let them go. Continue reading

For one night, at least. Yesterday, I brought out the "Snuggee" blanket. Ziggy was on the cat tower and immediately stood up. I put it on the sofa, and in less than 10 seconds she had gone under it, curled up and started snoring. Last night, neither Ziggy or Trance... Continue reading

Loki has a history of putting up with Ziggy's bad behaviors just so long, before he decides to take her down a peg or two. Examples: he was sleeping in a box, and she kept jumping on and off it to annoy him, and he pounced and pinned her down.... Continue reading

Trance came to live with us about 2 weeks ago. There were some dust-ups with Ziggy, resident Queen Bengal (queen as in royalty, not breeding). Thinks have settled down, although there are still a few growls from Ziggy every once in a while. Keito and Loki could care less. Hanging... Continue reading

Seeing as after the entire day, no growling at all. Dirty looks are ok, but no fighting Wing said there was a big of growling back and forth last night, but he put a stop to it right away This morning, I get up, Ziggy is on the floor, standing... Continue reading

This morning, instead of waiting inside her cubby cube in the bathroom for one of us to come in, she was pounding on the door demanding to be let out. I shooed Ziggy away from the door, and let Trance out. Trance cautiously came out, remembering how Ziggy behaved yesterday,... Continue reading

I was going to link to the page, but I'm not going to give this asshole any net traffic. Minimum wage, had it kept pace with inflation, would and should be about $15 an hour if not more. Here's my thought. A US Army Sergeant, with 4 years military service... Continue reading

We let Trance out of "solitary confinement", and it seemed to be going ok. But I think it was a case of too much open space, not knowing her way around (our bad, we should have shown her where the sand trays were immediately) and it just overloaded her. She... Continue reading

I managed to get the Blu Ray player working! *does happy dance*. And I didn't have to cave into ' My Computer Mate's' blackmail. Re-seated some plugs/pins. And that mofo would have charged me $110 for re-seating what he didn't plug in properly. Continue reading

I made a full disc copy of one of my blu ray movies to a hd. Started up Blu Ray program, and voila, the full disc folder rip plays without a hitch. so, that just means the idiot from "My Computer Mate" didn't put something together right (you know, the... Continue reading

New monitor set up as primary, as it needs to be. Managed to get the touch screen working on the proper screen (it was active on the NON touch screen). The fun part is getting the desktop icons to stay put on the secondary monitor (done) and then the tedious... Continue reading
