Yarn Charging Cable: Encouraging Cats to Chew on Power Cords

No, this isn’t a new toy for your feline friend, it’s a concept charger for your phone and/or other devices. While it makes sense to have something that’s longer than standards cords, I wonder if cats everywhere will rejoice upon seeing this charger that’s designed to look like a ball of yarn.

The Persians

On my way home from school on Thursday, after having filled up Die Rote Zora with 98 octane, I saw a girl holding her Persian cat. It was partly orange and had big green eyes. It barely moved in her arms. I was at a red light. The cat got too heavy for the girl, who was about 10, and she gave it to her mommy. They crossed the street and I’ll probably never see them again.

I always like going to the vet’s because his place is always swarming with animals. He’s got a few nice cats, including a grey Persian, who loves to get a pet. They are usually all over the place and it’s quite entertaining to watch. It’s almost like cat reality TV.

My cat is like that from time to time, but she’s definitely got some annoying qualities. She gets very vocal, but at least with me home, she doesn’t wake me up during the night. She just loves getting attention, but she’s got a strange way of going about this.

Cat Litter Tech: Keeping Your Home Free of Odors

032211_rg_CatLitterTech_01.jpgLet’s be honest: cat litters can get funky pretty quickly and even if they don’t, you have to change them every few days so that your place doesn’t smell. That being said, there are quite a few new ways of keeping your kitty litter smelling like roses. There’s nothing like keeping those funky odors under control, while still keeping your kitty cat happy.

Tech Pet Life: Keeping Cats Off Your Laptop

012411_rg_CatsLaptops_01.jpgIf you’ve got a cat and a laptop, you’ve probably found your kitty lounging about near or on your laptop (or just on computers in general). While we understand that cats enjoy sitting on something warm, it’s kind of funny and annoying at the same time. I can’t remember the number of times that I’ve shushed my own cat Yoda off my laptop. What can you do to stop this behavior?

Dogkill

It’s a little past midnight, and a man gets out of a courtyard. He’s got a dog in tow and he’s walking quickly towards a nearby park. The dog follows his master obediently on the leash. It’s a French bulldog, all muscle and all clown. The owner is pulling the dogs along. He sees a bunch of stray dogs nearby, strangely clustered around a large container. The man doesn’t think too much about it and hurries onward.

Cats Use Tails to Communicate Their Moods

Yoda the kitten in July 2008. She was so tiny!

I found this little post quite interesting. It details the different moods of cats and how they communicate them using their tails. I also wanted to know why my cat tends to gently bite me. I happily found out that this is the feline equivalent of kissing. The bites are gentle and don’t hurt. I guess that’s how she shows affection.

I

I’ve spent about 4-5 hours on my algebra homework. I still have another 27 problems to finish¹. Naturally, they get harder as you go along. Kind of annoying. I like writing easier ones first and then moving to harder ones a bit later. I like this to happen in each problem set. For some reason, I had trouble with cyclic groups and had to review the subject matter before completing two problems.

With these types of abstract math, it’s best to stop when you feel it slipping away or when you hit a problem that looks impossible to let it stew and come back to it. This has been my technique for the last few years and it works well. I have to be really careful with the solutions. I have all of the solutions of the problems that I’m doing in Hungerford’s Algebra².
