Ha! I got one right when I got home after seeing Greg too! I've only gotten a chance to try it on Dim Sum and she was pretty weirded out by the whole thing. ReadyMade recently tweeted that rubber gloves are good at getting fur off furniture. We should try that next!

This is something I had to deal with when I was feeding cat colonies in Brooklyn. I found that the easiest solution is communication. If you start feeding anything, without talking to the community it affects, you're going to create a tense environment. If you at least start a conversation with the community that, like it or not, home these strays you can find out what bothers them and try to come up with solutions. If trash from flyaway dishes is a problem, you can create more stable feeding stations, if more cats is an issue, you can TNR the strays in order to curb more generations. The colony itself will then, hopefully, start to protect its territory and keep other cats or animals from coming in. Also, where she's chosen to feed may not be the most considerate area. She should find a more secluded area that she can control and clean easily, without bothering local businesses. Hopefully both sides start to talk to each other and can come up with a balanced solution that works for everyone -- especially the cats!
Liz, I believe it was a honeybee. I only found the stinger because it was sticking out of her chin like a big whitehead. If you can find where they've been stung, you should probably treat the area with ice and the baking soda paste. I've also read that you can give your pets antihistamines to alleviate any reaction they have to the venom, but check with your vet on what kind and dosage.
Just wanted to give you a heads up that I blogged about your awesome home office on Unplggd. http://www.unplggd.com/unplggd/look-computing-smack-dab-in-the-middle-120399

@blanket: But of course! Make sure you also credit GrassRoots Modern, who tipped me off to the collection.
@kasie: You're totally right. I was trying to be cheeky and threw fact out the window. Have edited to reflect the correct term to use. Thanks for catching that. So, have you traveled with your bird before?

You've nailed it on the head Leda! Mutual rehabilitation.
that sea turtle story is so insane. I've spent the entire day in awe of how random things come together like this.
Kate, I'm finding out for you. Will post another comment when I find out.

HA! That's from Jimmy Kimmel. He did a alternate ending bit and coincidentally B and I watched it last night even though we don't watch JK. http://www.hulu.com/watch/152005/jimmy-kimmel-live-alternate-lost-ending-with-vincent

I can't wait to hear about the frustrations you have with them. I was in the same boat -- I loved that they were gardening, yet I hated how inconsiderate they were of other people's space. I think your fencing will help though, since they won't be able to see you and hence won't be able to ask you to water their garden, take them to home depot, or drive them to Queens (no joke!).

Poor Norm! They should pick up some Feliaway and Rescue Remedy as well. It'll help destress Norm so that she's more inclined to eat.
OMG! Next thing you know parents will be putting life vests on their kids to keep 'em out of the way!

I like the idea of helping elder pups up satirs or into cars, but using this because your dog "gets in the way," well that's just sad. Reminds me of parents who put their kids on leashes.

Oh and the reason we don't have XXLs and larger is that the logo is too small for that size shirt and it ends up looking a bit silly. I would cost us another $50 to get a larger print on the screen at the printers and we've already invested so much in this current batch of shirts.
@Angry Fat Geek Why do you think we hate fatties. We have unisex XLs that are mighty large.
OMG! These are so amazingly creepy!
