flwyd: (spam lite)
From the Quote of the Day iGoogle plugin:
You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.
-- Albert Einstein

I also got a spam message today from an address @portlandhottub.com. While I assume that domain is owned by someone who sells hot tubs in Portland, the first thing that came to mind was every person in Portland, OR lounging in a very large hot tub. Now that would be my kind of city.

flwyd: (smoochie sunset)
I and two other people list low-tech solutions as an interest. I periodically try to think of a good example to explain this interest, but usually draw a blank. But late last week my cat developed a urinary tract infection. I took him to the vet, who prescribed antibiotics. The last time Smoochie took antibiotics, it took five minutes of struggle to get half a dropper of bubble-gum flavored liquid into his mouth and half all over his face. With that in mind, I requested pills to try something new. Saturday night, it took a struggle to force a gravy-coated pill into his mouth. After a few tries, he swallowed it.

Enter my new favorite low-tech solution: Pill Pockets. It's a cat (or dog) treat open on one side. It's easy to slip a pill in, and if it's small you can mould the treat over the pill. Then set the treat in front of the sick cat. He'll sniff it once and eat it without thought. Brilliant and well worth the $11 I spent.
