Well she cracked two teeth grinding down elk antlers, we didn't know it could be a problem. So they had to take those out yesterday and she was woozy. She is on meds and grumpy today.
Dog life hasn't grown on me at all. In fact, it has further emphasized that cats are the far superior animal
I totally get that dogs can be loving and affectionate, but they are permanent toddlers. You will have to clean up their poop, take them everywhere, feed them on a schedule for their entire lives.
Cats are more like teenagers. Can be affectionate if they want to be, but can also function on their own for the most part.
@facw Here's one of our cats "Newmie" (named New Meow by our kid when we got her and it just stuck) - she knows the second I plop down on the couch and comes running from wherever she's been hiding all day, meowing her face off asking for love.
And here's Bailey Boy - the sweetest (giant) cavalier in the world. He's chewing a dog treat here. The kid could lay on him, put her hand in her mouth (or "watch" him eating it from 6 inches away as she's doing here) - hell even my in law's new puppy could come take the treat from him and he'll happily wag his tail, never even a growl.
As a kid, I had a dog who, if she got out the door, would be gone roaming for hours. She wouldn't come, and was too fast to catch. I LOVED snow days, because I could take her out and let her run all over the place (and not worry she'd get hit by a car), and she'd want to come in after because it was so cold.
I mean look at that – a truly successful amalgamation of rectangles and circles. And the name itself – Patriot – who wouldn't shudder hearing that? Combined with its engine name; World Gasoline Engine, really encapsulates what America is all about: being a Patriot to the world while taking their oil supply
I'm in COMPLETE agreement with you. Clearly this model is SUPERIOR than that other vehicle named 'Wrangler'.
Why would you ever want a mere 'wrangler' when you could have a PATRIOT!!!
@facw I hate how hard it is to stay mad at this idiot.
He's been keeping me up at night and I really wanted to boot him the other night. He was inside all day Wednesday, as a requirement of being a single dad for a week, going to school and also working and so when I got home from class at 1030 on Wednesday I just opened the back door and went to bed. I figured I don't mind the cool breeze, the kids were at their grandmas and i wasn't worried about the back door being opened. That way he could come and go as he pleased and make up for being stuck inside all day. Well I was woken up at 5 AM to a catfight IN MY BATHROOM right by my bed. The stupid neighbor cat who has no compunction about being a jerk likes to wander in at night and steal Irohs food. He's a well-fed housecat, he doesn't need it...he's just kind of a jerk. Despite the fact that I've chased this cat out of the house before, hosed him with the garden hose several times and the fact that Iroh is now big and fast enough to kick his butt...he keeps coming back for more. By the time Iroh figured out what was going on they were in my bedroom. I chased them out again but in his attack stance, Iroh attacked me by mistake and got a hold of my forearm, and cut me good. Sliced into a vein and I was bleeding pretty good and now I have a decent-sized hematoma from the clotting.
can't see it in the picture, but it's about the size of a quarter.
He knew he done screwed up bad because after I hosed the neighbor cat...again...I went to find him and he was really terrified of me and ran like the dickens when I tried to colled my boy. I didn't see him again until about 9 in the morning and he walked in like he knew exactly how he screwed up. Really sweet and apologetic.
As a result, he's been super sweet with me for a few days now, following me around, rubbing up against me, taking naps near the computer. It won't last, but he is really quite an expert at the apology.
Stupid lovable cat.
I'm totally going to kick that neighbor cat next time he tries to pull that crap again though. He knows what he's doing and he does it just to get a rise out of my cat. I'll leave him alone when it's outside, but he's gotta learn this isn't his house.
I probably wont actually kick him...I might though he really bugs me.
