Peter, thank you for your usual, unflagging support, but I have to give in to the original owner's wishes as they now come forward in the package of a good home of her choosing. Yeah, she f*ucked up by not finding him a home all summer (but we all know how irresponsible the young can be), and she's put forward a plausible plan; I mean, what if it were my cat I'd raised from a kitten, to whom I'm very attached, and I made some mistakes but corrected them. It would break my heart if that cat were forcibly removed from my life!

I've offered her all reasonable access to the cat should he live with me permanently, but she doesn't want to visit it here, she wants to own it and visit it at her mom's house, when she visits her. One stop shopping.

Yes, I am the loser in all of this, but it's taught me how to integrate a new animal into my household, which I've thought of for some time.

BTW, how's your dog doing?

Thanks again, Peter!

You know how cats can unerringly jump, not being able to see the surface that they're going to land on, and land without incident? Well, I'm fostering a rather large male (a fantastic cat both in looks and personality, just hate to see him go, but he's going to a good, permanent home) who jumped up on top of my computer table, and in so doing knocked over half cup of coffee all over my keyboard.

Keyboard might be damaged. I have an IMac with a cordless keyboard. Could be pricey.

Thought someone should know.

Dishwasher (take out batteries). It'll either de-gunk it or firmly kill it. It's ok since ya got nothing to loose.

I'm my own worse enemy Rolling Eyes I recall the first computer a Tandy... in the days of no "hard drives"... One night I spilt beer all over the key board drunken

The next day I sheepishly took it into the repair shop.... the guy doubled over with laughter, knowing I was a minister Embarassed ...


It's happened since then Laughing ... but I've learned that you need to wait and let the key board dry out.... It's a PC so maybe Mac's are more sensitive....

Cats are never comfortable riding on a motorcycle no matter how much duct tape you use.

I had to resurrect this thread... I had my pipe plugged in my jaw (Granger, Kawoodie lovat) and picked up one of the cats.

He grabbed the pipe right out of my mouth! Just reached out and grabbed the bowl between his paws. (Good thing I was smoking nice and cool.)

Now, I don't believe this was an antismoking gesture--he loves sitting in my office while I smoke. I think the little scamp was jealous. He'll need a nice, light briar... does Greg Pease blend catnip?

Sorry. Greg is a Dog Person. The only fitting use he sees for cats is as moving targets for spitballs and the odd empty tobacco tin.
