    I accidentally ran over and killed one of my favorite parking lot work cats, Tom, when I was leaving this evening. He must of been under my back tire as I did not see him in front of me and and did not feel anything. I just happened to look back and saw him not moving and bleeding. I am devastated--he was so funny and loving and deserved better. I am so angry at myself.

    I am so annoyed that my landlord chopped down a tree that grew the most beautiful pink flowers in the spring in order to build a fence around my side yard. The fence doesnt even serve the purpose of keeping people from parking in the yard during major events---in fact all its going to do is obsure my view. I am devestated. Add on the fact that these guys are hanging around and playing music right outside my window more than they are working and Im majorly pissed.

    Fluff update: Here he is in his new home with his snowshoe housemate. The adorableness of it all is just too much!

    S01.E11: We Continue to Truck

    The only thing good about this episode for me was seeing the old Lunch Box set. I liked that it looked similar enough to be recognizable, but also realistically updated. Jackie's reaction to Peter too over the top for me. It was too pathetic for her age, even for her. Yeah, that ICE raid was telegraphed from the beginning of the episode. 🙄 I do hope they lighten up next season....

    I really had to refrain myself from adopting this little piece of fluff that I picked up out of a cat trap at my job the other day. Check out that ear floof! I ended up finding a rescue for him because if I saw him in a cage one more day, I would be breaking the 2 cat maximum on my lease, and my cats would be working themselves into a frenzy over their unwanted newest brother. This pic doesn't do justice to the fluffiness of his coat, but this is the best I could get as he was marching around and meowing orders at me.

    I went out at totality snd it still looked like a pinkish tint to me. Glad I saw it though. Surprised that I was the only one outside to look at it in my general area. Although It was in the 40s, which is the Artic cold for our region.

    She looks like Jigsaw from the Saw franchise. No wonder Tristan is trying to fuck anyone but her these days.

    Mine too. Chris is a world-class douche. Also, the whole toxoplasmosis thing with pregnant women and cats is always blown out of proportion. The virus is mostly spread through uncooked/undercooked meat, so unless your house cat is on a raw diet or eats vermin frequently, it has little chance of carrying the virus. Even so, if a pregnant woman wears gloves when handling the litter box, she and the fetus should be ok. Here's some more info for those interested: Many pet cats will never be exposed to Toxoplasma and therefore cannot pass infection on to humans.Even if a cat does become infected with Toxoplasma, it will only shed the oocysts (eggs) in its feces for a short period (approximately 10 days) after initial exposure. Following this there is no further significant oocyst shedding and therefore again no further risk to humans. Oocysts become infectious after 1 or 2 days. Since cats are very fastidious and are unlikely to leave feces on their fur for two days, it is unlikely that humans become infected from direct contact with cats themselves. Although humans can be infected through exposure to, and ingestion of oocysts in the environment, a more common source of infection appears to be infected meat. Following a few sensible environmental and meat hygiene measures can greatly reduce the risk of human infection: Cook all meat thoroughly – at least 160 -180 F (70 –82 C) throughout. When cooking, avoid tasting meat before it is fully cooked. Be aware that microwaving meat is not guaranteed to kill Toxoplasma. Avoid eating unpasteurized dairy products Wash hands, utensils (cutting boards, knives) and surfaces (sinks, counters) carefully after handling raw meat. Wash all vegetables carefully, especially those grown in backyard gardens. Wear gloves when gardening in soil potentially contaminated by cat feces. Empty cat litter trays daily, dispose of litter carefully, and disinfect with boiling water. If this is done every day, even if a cat is excreting oocysts, they will not have become infectious (because it takes at least 24 hours for oocysts that are passed in the feces to “ripen” and become infectious) by the time the litter is changed. Discourage pet cats from hunting, and avoid feeding them raw or undercooked meat. Cover any children’s sand boxes to prevent cats using them as a litter tray. Boil water from ponds and streams when camping/hiking.

    A case of the Mondays: vent your work spleen here

    Here's a cute little story: My job has morphed from being an Animal Control Officer to being an Animal Control officer/PM dispatcher. The excuse was they didn't have the money in the budget to hire a nighttime dispatcher. The really great thing is at full-staff we've always had 14 field officers, and when fully staffed, their isn't enough work for everyone to do. At our last meeting, New Supervisor says that they got budget approval to hire a 15th officer and chose to hire for that instead of hiring a dispatcher. We don't even have enough trucks for 15 people. He also made the new shift schedules as such that the only schedule that offers the days off that I need is the one I am working now. When asked why he did that, he said that he could just assign me any shift he wanted instead of going by seniority like we've done historically. So anyway, on the weekends, our call center is closed so their is an officer playing the role of AM dispatcher and another playing the role of PM dispatcher. On Saturday AM, there was a glitch in the technology that transfers the number over from the Friday PM officer (me) to the AM officer. Since I was on call, I was woken up at 9am (on-call ends at 7am) to calls pouring in on the line. NS was off and Old Retiring Supervisor was in. ORS told me to forward all important calls to the AM officer until the glitch was resolved, and that he would ensure that I got paid for my time. He said to send him and NS an email for when the first call came in and the last call came in. The glitch was resolved at 11:30am, so I did so. NS is the supervisor in charge of entering my time, and ORS has the same days off as me, so he finishes his payroll on Sat, while NS does his on Monday. Well, payroll is due today and I don't see the adjusted time on my time sheet. I forward the email to Payroll Processor who informs me that NS was unwilling to pay me for the time because I was "volunteering to work". Payroll Processor was like I'm pretty sure that isn't the case and they went back and forth until NS spoke with ORS to confirm that he promised I would be paid for my time. What in anyone's pea-brained mind thinks I would volunteer to do anything for a place who doesn't see my worth? I did what was right for the animals but no way in hell am I not going to nickel and dime them for any tasks I have to do on my off time because their failing system. GTFOH.

    I was 15 when BOMT was released. Definitely not my favorite album of hers (that would be Blackout). It was cheesy as hell, but perfect for the pop musical landscape at the time. I actually remember when TRL introduced the BOMT video for the first time. My favorite song on the album: I think Britney looks gorgeous in this video, but then again, I am partial to dirty blonde/brown hair than yellow/white blonde hair.

    She's been throwing every excuse at the wall to see if anything will stick: First, it was because she is now a Trump-loving conservative and ABC ("liberal media") hated her for it; then it was that her tweet wasn't racist because she "thought the bitch was white" and that she shouldn't be fired for an innocent Tweet, then it was she on Ambien and ABC should forgive her because she was unaware that she Tweeted that. Now its anti-Semitism. You're done, Roseanne. Let it go. Go back to Hawaii and enjoy your nut farm.

    Khloe

    That nose is looking real late stage Michael Jackson-ish. I agree with all the posters that say that she's using filters to lighten True's skin. Yeah, she dates black men, but she probably looked at how light North turned out for Kim/Kanye and figured since she is lighter than Kim, she'd probably have an even fairer skinned baby. I don't expect this idiot to understand how genetics work. She thinks people still buy that Rob is her bio dad, even though she looks exactly like Alex and if you want to throw OJ in the mix, she and Sydney Simpson did kind of resemble each other when they were younger. If Khloe's pregnant again, and that baby comes out high yellow, good bless poor True.

    The quarantining of animal for 10 days due to its involvement in a bite to a human is necessary because the Dept of Health in every state requires it, even if is a provoked bite or happens on the animals own property. That is the incubation time of the rabies virus. Even though your animals are up to date on their vaccines, its required by law. However, your county seems to have stricter rules when it comes to quarantines with the random check ups. I would also contact your Animal Control Dept to discuss that "euthanasia rule". If the bite was provoked, then it shouldn't be held against her. I'm sorry this happened to you.
