    Getting a local cat to visit is a great idea.

    Unfortunately, after some of the events of earlier this year, I'm never taking her outside again, not even for a roll around the grounds. She's on...

    Good ideas, keep them coming. I have given her lots of stuffed cats but wasn't aware of ones that realistic. Will check it out. Maybe an improved purring stuffed cat or a rental cat for Christmas....
  3. Good Sites for Cat-Related Stuff for Person with Dementia

    I'm not putting this in Menagerie because it's not technically about cats themselves, and I thought it might be better seen here.

    I'm having problems spending Mom's personal allowance. Her...

    Reminds me of a good friend of mine years ago who said, when invited to the 4th wedding of a friend of his, all such weddings having been the whole nine yards and all previous marriages having been...

    Poll: Makes me think of Mom, who hated tight clothes...

    Makes me think of Mom, who hated tight clothes all her life. She once said that were it not for the social taboo, she'd rather go naked all the time.

    She HATED bras, never slept in one, and took...

    A thousand likes.

    My dad and stepmom just celebrated their 30th anniversary.

    They invited us 3 kids (me and top 2 brothers; youngest brother with different dad not on earth yet) up for the...

    Beats me. If I ever get married, I won't have one. I wouldn't dream of asking people to spend that kind of money or in fact any kind of money on a "last fling" trip.

    COTH is so educational,...

    Maybe human thermostat comes into play. I hadn't thought of that. I've never minded cats sleeping on top of me, even multiple cats, so they don't get shooed over. On the other hand, I'm...

    Sleeping Habits

    I was just wondering this the other day reading some of the "my 10% of the bed" posts. Most cats in my lifetime have actually preferred to sleep on top of me, like frogs on a log. They do love to...

    That's Coda, who weighs a third of what he does, and they wrestle fiercely. I'm always a little worried for Coda, even after a couple of years of her. She has little matchstick legs, too, and looks...

    Yes, and absolutely yes.

    With my grandparents, it was a nightmare. Grandmother, the first to lose it, was the financial/organizing one. Grandaddy was hopeless with money all his life but was...

    I just finished my current lunch movie, which happened to be on the VCR this time, not DVD. (I watch movies in 15-minute increments during meal time. Amazing how many you can get through that way...

    What a wonderful life of music - and continuing to sing, even if she's retired from the playing. Kudos to your Mom!

    There's one man in our church who is in his mid 90s. Fantastic, opera quality...

    I typed an ER on someone the other day who said his pain was a 10 - said it calmly, collectedly, was being conversational with the staff and docs in full sentences, appropriately configured normal...

    Tis the Season to Get Snuggly

    It's downright chilly today, and for the first time this fall, I broke out the old housejacket that I inherited from Grandmother's things. It looks like a wreck, but it's wonderfully comfortable and...
  18. Thank you! Pushing full screen on the windows...

    Thank you! Pushing full screen on the windows bar and not the Kindle program did give me a gray bar at the bottom and told me that my location is 1987 of 7346 (huh? Well, at least it's a location.)
  19. I don't have anything on the bottom of the screen...

    I don't have anything on the bottom of the screen below the page. No bar, no number, no nothing. I tried switching to full page view, but that doesn't add anything. And I can't find "settings." I...
  20. Where are the page numbers on Kindle????

    Rock-solid fan of physical books here. I want to hold it in my hand, hear the pages turning, smell it. Have never liked reading E-books and only do it under protest.

    But a relative has...

    [QUOTE=Wellspotted;7751901]
    What really irritates me (as in "physical irritation") is people saying "lay" when they mean "lie." "Lay down, Rover." "I'm gonna go home and lay down."

    It bothers me, too, as do many grammar offenses.

    I agree that they don't really hear themselves at this point. If they actually heard a recording of that, I think the frequency would surprise...

    I was recently rewatching the Sydney 2000 dressage highlights video. Anky's victory gallop on Bonfire had some interesting moves in it! He looked like he was 1/2 hair short of an explosion.
