    My cat loves the juice from packages of meat, but won't eat any chunks of meat, raw or cooked. I think I could probably transition her if I used canned food, but dry Orijen is cheaper. Mebe she just needs more fat.

    Yeah, I get concerned that my cats eat a higher carb ratio than I do... and they're carnivores. I would like to transition them to raw, but I feel like it would be a lot of work, and I'd have to read more about it. I am also worried about cost, because their food currently costs only $25 a month, and I honestly can't afford much/any more than that. So I dunno. I still feed them grain-free (Blue Wilderness), but it doesn't seem good enough, and I feel bad.

    I don't know what other dry grain-free options are out there really. Orijen comes in 5.5 lb bags and is about $21. That lasts me about one month for my 12lb kitty. Orijen has a high fat and protein amount, it's under 20% carbs I think. I saw that Petco (or Petsmart, whichever) has some grain-free options, maybe there is something else out there has a lower carb count.

    I am also hunting for a good clumping, odour-absorbent litter. I am using World's Best Cat Litter (what a pretentious name), it clumps really nicely and helps with the smell, however, over time it gets dusty. One bag lasted me about a month for my one cat, but I'm stretching it. I need to buy something new soon (and a higher sided box so she stops kicking her shit all over the kitchen floor).

    Oh, I don't want to put them on another dry food, I want to take them off dry food. The Blue Wilderness is good stuff as far as dry goes, but it's still relatively high carb. I mean, I'm eating like 5% carbs, and they're eating like 20%. That just seems wrong to me. They are carnivores. They shouldn't be eating any carbs.

    My one cat is a litter-kicker too. She acts like she's digging to China in there. The other cat doesn't even like touching the litter. She'll scratch everything around the box -- the wall, the floor, the outside of the box -- but not the actual litter. Cats. Who knows.

    HAHA, my new bra arrived. Yeah, there is no way I can wear this one. The band size is perfect, unfortunately the cups are so hilariously gigantic that I could probably fit both breasts into one. I expected it to be a little loose, but it's even worse than my old bras. I wonder if I can be shady and return it to a store for the full retail dollar amount... Returning it to the ebay seller would not actually get me any money back. Or I guess I could personally sell it back out on ebay.

    Conclusion: Mail order bras, while cheap, are really not something I would recommend unless you definitely know your size for a given company. It really sucks being an unconventional size that is not carried in stores.

    [Edit to add] Ok, I'm going to the mall tomorrow to exchange it for a 40DDD, which I believe (hopefully) should fit reasonably well. They only carry up to DDD in the store so that's the best I can do. That seems fair, because it's just trading for a different size. It should be no skin off their nose, and that way I get a bra I can wear, and I won't be out any money.

    Hopefully they will be okay with that.

    I had to agree to go to the flea market tomorrow and keep my friend company in exchange for the ride to the mall, so I might wear something frumpy to avoid attention. I don't know, we'll see. I resent feeling like I need to wear unflattering clothing to avoid being harassed, but would I rather wear unflattering clothing or be harassed? Neither. Blah.

    Here is another suggestion from the lady who thinks she knows it all: Booda Dome (brand) Clean Step Litter Box (the specific style). Got one for Rudi because it has a built-in ramp - easier on his hips that way. I got mine at PetSmart. No way in hell your cats are tossing much out of this one - mine like to play kitty-excavating-company as well.

    One of mine liked to walk straight into the old-style covered litter box, parked-car style - and pee out of it because he would never turn around so his kitty-heinie was pointed towards the back of the box...

    The Booda is two-piece: a top dome and the actual pan. Easy to clean. I plan on getting a second soon.

    We have kids, and our fondest hopes and dreams are that our toothbrushes live quiet and boring lives. You really don't want to be intimate with a toothbrush that has led an exciting life.

    Look on the bright side. A heavy period is (usually) a sign of good health. It means your body has the resources to build up a nice, thick lining for any babies, and the muscle tone to produce good, strong contractions to get it all out when it is not needed. You are building a better body.
