Things & Stuff

Laila continues to be more and more active.
She's started clawing my bed, and she loves one of Solange's toys - which is fine, since Solange never showed much interest in it.
I need to get these two a scratching post.
One of the things I plan to do tomorrow - after taking Laila to the vet to have the cast/splint removed and the stitches taken out - is to clean the LitterMaid.
Now, for those of you who don't know how it works - there's an electric eye that detects when the cat has used the litter box. Ten minutes after the cat leaves, a rake scoops out the solid waste (you have to use clumping litter) and drops it into a container. Then the rake smooths out the litter. You have to empty or replace the receptacle, but they are easily purchased at Target and online.
The electronic part comes off - it's held in place with two clips. Then the litter pan area can be cleaned out and washed. After you do that, you spray the pan "lightly" with some non-stick cooking spray and then wipe away the extra with a cloth. This helps keep the litter from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Well, I had no non-stick spray. So I went to the store last night to pick some up. I also went to get a couple more cans of Fancy Feast cat food for the two hungry ladies who live here.
Albertsons was having a sale. Twenty cans of Fancy Feast for $10. That's literally one third off the regular price. And on top of that, they had a whole bunch of varieties that I'd never seen before.
I splurged and bought a total of fifty-eight cans. But between those and the Pam spray - and a little bottle of milk for cooking - I spent less than $40.
These two are gonna be eating well for awhile.
My boss at work - a self-proclaimed dog lover - chipped in $20 to the Repair fund.
There's a reason why I've stayed at this job for more than seventeen years. I work for good people.
Whoever authorized the Air Force One fly-by over New York - and only notified the NYPD, and ordered them to keep quiet - is a stupid asshole.
Did they think that the citizens of New York had forgotten about what happened the last time an airliner got down to the 1000-ft level in that city?
This fool needs to be fired.
Well, there's much to do. So, onward.
Be seeing you.
