That’s an interesting portrait. Very unusual.
I once had a cat that could spit out a pill no matter how far down her throat I’d shoot it. If you tried giving her liquid medicine she’d hold her breath until she actually turned blue and she’d pee on you, then she’d open her mouth (no matter how long I held it closed) and let it drain out. She could even mimic swallowing pills and liquids! Until her I could give medicine to any cat! The vet didn’t believe me until he tried, and got the exact same results! After that, any medication she ever needed had to be injected.
At the same time, I had another cat who didn’t mind being given medicine as long as he could have a bottle afterwards (and he was an adult).
I always seem to get the weird cats.
Depending on where she lives, perhaps she could have a more realistic fear, like of a copperhead, cottonmouth, or water moccasin.
A lot of non-Muslims don’t realize that in Islam Jesus is considered a great prophet. They revere Him as such.
So much of the garbage you hear spouted from the so-called Muslim terrorists has absolutely nothing to do with the actual faith. They are no more Muslim than Jim Jones was Christian.
I was a teen back before cell phones. I could only talk for 10 minutes on our phone. Period. I didn’t exactly love that rule, but I grudgingly understood that it was only fair as the phone was shared by all. Phone addiction wasn’t an issue.
Perhaps he should pay more attention to what she likes. If he put some effort into it I’ll bet she wouldn’t return it. On the other hand, a gift card to a store she likes works, too.
I’m lucky. My cat has absolutely zero interest in my Christmas tree. After 10 years, it isn’t going to change. I even put some tinsel on it this year. She hasn’t shown any interest!
Thanks for explaining what their doing.
As for the rip, it was likely the result of an accident. One of my brothers, as a little boy, shot a toy dart through a painting that had been in our family for a couple of generations. To say he got into trouble is an understatement. We were able to get it repaired, and unless you’re really looking hard, you wouldn’t know. The other brother now owns it.
Sadly, a lot of teen pregnancies happen because of their starry-eyed vision of babies. Babysitting is one thing. Being a parent is hugely different. I’ve had a number of teen moms who have told me that although they love their child with all of their heart, they wished they had waited.
You’re so right. All kinds of things shape how a child turns out. In the end, the adult is responsible for what their life is like.
