Sounds like a good idea.

Some people just look at animals as, well, just animals being just like peas in a pod. My son's cat carefully times just how long he will permit being petted. To end the seession he'll either jump down or bite. I feel honored if he will lie on my lap for 15 minutes.

Don't buy that bit about biters bite because electricity builds up in the fur and makes them uncomfortable. I wouldn't dare stroke Fredo's fur. I barely softly do his nose or his chin.

I didn't see a program for a Mafia Don, which would suit Fredo. Happy

Adopted 3 inside, and now a stray on the porch
by Roger NC / May 16, 2008 8:02 AM PDT

that is turning out to be pregnant.

We were trying to find her a home, she's very cute and friendly. We'd actually rather keep her and get rid of one of the other 3, but that would be a bit too mean I guess.

However, the kittens will go to the nearest humane society as soon as they are weaned, if we don't have owners lined up already.

Actually the stray on the porch is now secluded in the back room mostly, waiting for the kittens to drop. There are a couple of dogs loose in the neighborhood, and she (the cat) seems to like laying under our deck way too much.

I have -1- cat that does fine by me. I live in the country and find that just 1 cat can make an impact on the wildlife. So, I maintain 1 cat. I get them as kittens or orphaned and replace one that died. I just make room for one. Well, my friend has a bunch, way too many always trying to give me one. Nope, only because I told her not to accept strays from the neighborhood or leave the garage door open(winter) they'll find warm, shelter and food. Well, now that bunch is pregnant and the whole 9 yards of trouble. I'm sure the neighbors will complain sooner or later as we're talking roughly 20-30 cats now and more coming. She doesn't want to be a cat lady but so far hasn't called the shelter.

I fix my cat and feed it well and allow it the room it needs. So far, a happy cat with more options I'm sure. -----Willy Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
