    That’s why it’s a good idea to trim their claws (or have the vet do it) every few weeks.
    .
    On the other hand, short claws could be bad if she gets into a fight while outdoors. (Our cats are indoor-only, so trimming doesn’t cause problems.)
    .
    On the other other hand, playing outdoors on a regular basis usually wears claws down enough so trimming shouldn’t be necessary.

    Peekaboo is a very strange kitten to play outdoors a lot and also have claws long enough to snag on everything.

    I don’t think it’s typical for the jingle-writer to also perform for the recording. Doesn’t he usually just submit a demo tape along with lyrics so the sponsor can hire actual musicians to make the recording?

    What makes you think he didn’t already have one. It would certainly explain a lot.

    If you bathe them on a regular basis from kittenhood, they usually get used to it and don’t fight that much. I’ve got friends who do this (every two weeks) in order to minimize allergens in the house.
    .
    If you try it only on those rare occasions when they get seriously dirty, then yes, you’re looking at a serious fight. I recommend wearing leather clothes for protection.

    As I’ve joked to my wife: “When I retire, I want to spend the summers in Phoenix and the winters in Buffalo. Or maybe the other way around.”

    I tried that with my cat once. He didn’t like it.

    Do high schools even have home-ec courses anymore?

    If you eat Guatemalan Insanity Peppers, you may end up on a vision quest.

    Several states (NJ, for example) have “keep right except to pass” laws. If you’re not in the right lane and you’re not passing someone on your right, then you can be ticketed.

    I’ve had friends get tickets in NJ for “failure to keep right” while driving in the left lane on an empty highway.
