    I just say I was born before Sputnik and leave it at that.

    Mine is twofold, a very tattered copy of Japanese fairy tales and a wooden badger (also Japanese). I lived there as a child when Eisenhower was President.

    I never said that it was. My response merely explained the 3 processes of claw removal. I have 14 cats. All are spayed/neutered and none are declawed, as I am personally opposed to the procedure. Had you read further, you would know that Trilogy used the least invasive and least painful of the 3 procedures.

    I don’t believe anything else needs to be said about the topic.

    Not “kid’s”, it should be “kids’”. Sorry ’bout that.

    Dad was career Navy, and we could always figure when his aircraft carrier came in to port— kid’s birth months January, February, February (sister died the same day), March, May. Youngest was a real surprise; Dad had a vasectomy on board ship, but the flight surgeon neglected to mention accumulated fertile sperm. “Uncle Doc” had to do some explaining on that one.

    Declawing kittens or adult cats requires the removal of the claw. Because the claw is permanently affixed to a cat’s knuckle, this also means removing all or part of the third bone from a cat’s paw. There are three medically approved ways to perform cat declawing:

    Blade Declawing: An instrument with a sliding blade cuts a straight line through the joint between the entire claw growth and the rest of the cat’s paw. This is the most common method of declawing kittens or adult cats, and is the most invasive.Laser Declawing: A laser is used to remove the third bone of the cat’s paw. Laser declawing is usually more expensive than blade declawing, but laser declawing results in less bleeding during surgery, as well as less pain and shorter recovery time.Cosmetic Declawing: A tiny curved blade dissects out the claw and the tiny piece of the bone the claw is affixed to. Because the soft tissue and paw pad remains intact, and similar to laser declawing, there is less post-surgery discomfort and quicker recovery time versus blade declawing. This is a more precise and time consuming procedure compared to blade declawing.

    They wear standard narrow tooth rowels and the heels of their boots keep them off the floor.

    I’m an antique dinosaur-aged woman. I hold open doors for any gender if I am already at the door. I also make a point of thanking the person holding the door for—especially a child (although it is usually a man from the Cowboy Coffee Club at my favorite diner. FYI for the curious: yes, their horses are saddled and in the stock trailers, they do wear their spurs and hats inside, and no, they normally do not open carry at the diner).

    Ghost pumpkins are a grayish white. But I’m sure Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and JoAnn’s have them in gray.

    Somehow, I get the feeling that Les is hiding his emotions because Gunther is there. I see him sneaking over to the big house when everyone else is at work/school and playing “Red Dot of Destruction” with the kittens—mostly by focusing the dot on Moe’s twitching tail.
