Early morning visit to Ebay

I have Feliway diffusers, but with the wide open floor plan, power outlet locations leave much to be desired.

Visited eBay seller, and got some Feliway spray. Two bottles to use in the heavy cat traffic areas.

Hello, 3am, been waiting an hour for you to arrive

Last night, I decided to forego the “Leonardo Da Vinci” special on SBS because I was just that tired.

For this wisdom, I was woken up by not so melodious sound of Ziggy and Trance in a throw down at 2am. I thought those pheromone calming collars were supposed to prevent this sort of behavior?

Go back to bed, you say? Ha! luckily for me, once I’m awake, I’m awake. Might be a nap later in the day for me, but not any time soonish.

Now that Trance has been ‘belled’

Trance is a bit sulky with me right now, as a few mornings ago, I walked up to her, and as she was being lovey, I put a collar with a few small bells on it around her neck. She went nuts. Acrocatics at its best. She’s not 100% used to it yet, but she isn’t doing back flips, and trying to scrape it off now.

But the upswing is this: Now that Ziggy can hear her coming, and know where Trance is located, she has calmed down enough to stop hiding all the time. Here she is, sleeping out in the open, totally relaxed.

What is with the current crop of Republicans?

How many school kids, almost babies, need to be slaughtered before they stop taking money from a glorified gun club for political favors? Does it have to their own children and grand children before they wise up?

How many towns in Texas have to be almost blown off a map before the politicians stop trying to hide what dangerous chemicals are being stored/stockpiled in civilian neighborhoods?

Why did governor of North Carolina make is FELONY to disclose what chemicals are used in fracking other than preventing those poisoned from the toxins being able to trace it back to the source?

I know these politicians are lining their pockets, maybe not while their in office, but when they leave. It’s their ‘retirement perks’, other than the full ‘pensions’ they get for being in the US government.

They’re supposed to be working for the people… not screwing them over.

The intelligence of cats.. especially Ziggy.

It’s not any deep dark secret that Ziggy does not want or even like having Trance in ‘her’ house. But this is just mind blowing.

I saw Ziggy come into my study. She jumped up on the sofa, and instead of just curling up to snooze, she sat, with front feet not tucked up under her, and staring out the door. Watching.. just watching, ears perked forward.

This caught my attention. So, I watched Ziggy.

A few moments later, I see Trance, kind of walking low and cautious, heading toward the laundry area. I got ready to stop Ziggy from going after Trance, but Ziggy just sat on the sofa.. watching.

Huhwha? I got up quietly to check on Trance, and what greeted me was this: Trance almost getting outside, but for me nudging the laundry basket, she spooked and ran back into the front area of the house.

Ziggy had opened the side door but didn’t go outside. Instead she came back into the study, hopped onto the sofa and waited. If it hadn’t been for the laundry basket, Trance would have gotten out.

Ziggy couldn’t have told Trance to get out any clearer, could she?

McDaniel says ‘hundreds’ of irregularities found in Mississippi race


“This election wasn’t fair! (because I didn’t win!).” Irregularities = eligible voters who didn’t vote for his sorry ass.

Originally posted on CNN Political Ticker:

(CNN) — Three days after Mississippi’s bitter Republican Senate primary runoff ended, the challenger in the race refuses to concede, charging that “this was not a fair election. Activity was illegal, at worst. Unethical, at best.”

And in an exclusive interview with CNN affiliate WLOX, state Sen. Chris McDaniel said he was shocked at how fellow Republicans verbally attacked him after he announced a primary challenge against six-term Sen. Thad Cochran.
