That is true about our old buildings. My bedroom closet is beyond bizarre – it has a narrow door, then it is mostly to the right of the door – with no light, obviously, an the hot-water heater at the end of it, so that was a spa for clothes moths. They ruined my best coat and other things, and no, I hadn’t put them away without cleaning them.
What is his name? Remember, he should have been a bit older when adopted, but there are many reasons kittens are abandoned by their mother or by humans, or that someone is unable to keep them. If he is playful and happy, and eating and eliminating well, that is a very good start!
Don’t worry, no violence! Lynx are shy cats, and it is unusual for humans to view such encounters. The guy filming them is safe in his car. They have most impressive vocalisations!

Yes, shawarma can be served in a pita, but also as a plate, with salad and other yummy things. There is a Syrian restaurant near my place that has gone all vegetarian and largely vegan; they feature “fake meat” made from some kind of mushroom. I’m not really convinced. I’ve had their falafel, which are very good, but that has always been a…[Read more]

I want the brown bag with a black cat inside! (Not to eat, of course).
Nowadays I often take a salad, so it is in a washable container, not a bag.

Real candles for me (the non-drip kind) but my tablecloths are colourful. I like to set a pretty table, but there is no way a white anything is compatible with a totally black cat, even if I put it on at the last minute. Especially in spring when she moults, although I comb her every day.
Kz, yes, that seems so sad when children are cross about…[Read more]

Yes, here there is discussion of getting rid of the 5 cent piece as well. The problem is that retailers most usually round up. And while debit cars are handy, I really want to keep the right to use banknotes and coin.

Just wanted to point out that the 22nd of May is also International Biodiversity Day, and while our domestic cats aren’t threatened as a species, many of their wild cousins, large and small, certainly are.
Actually, I was very impressed with Meghan’s dress. Very elegant, no bling – except for the antique tiara, of course.
LIVIA remains the queen of all creation, though she was born in a shed, in an alley.

That big ginger tom is FAR too portly!
Kittyzee, important that they learn how food grows. Although I was an urban child, fortunately I had relatives who were still farming although they had reached a more than respectable age. The difference between supermarket vegetables and “real”, just-picked vegetables was obvious. In my neighbourhood, a…[Read more]
The ultimate shelter story! https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/may/18/meghan-markle-rescue-dog-royal-wedding A beagle at a pound in Kentucky (and on death row) was rescued by a Canadian rescue group. She was adopted by Meghan Markle, who was living in Toronto at the time. And will be moving to a palace!

I strongly suspect that Livia would NOT hug that rat.
Remember that pack rat also refers to hoarding, and an excess of clutter. Some cats hoard odd things too… such as socks.
I’ve done a lot of decluttering – have more to do. Livia helps me – ha!!!
papers, books. I still have 5 bookcases – had 8… in a small flat. As for papers, always…[Read more]
I just wish those creeps would change the order. Like, shoot themselves before the wife, children, and often random human beings as the guy with a rented cube van did in Toronto.

Just in time. The large mature maple tree outside my home office (and balcony) was late to leaf this spring, but now it is beautiful!
Yes, in South America as well, particularly the Amazon, deliberate deforestation is causing very serious environmental damage.

That is entirely possible. Also, remember that he is a tiny baby. Does anyone here know if putting the training pads used for puppies would be a good idea? Or shutting him up in the bathroom (where the floor is easier to mop)? Is he affectionate with you? Does he seem lonely? Poor wee mite.
