Happy Valentine's Day belatedly!

On the bus on the way to Quebec with the kiddos. Just left @ 11 PM. Should get there around 8 or 8:30 AM & we hit the ground running. weather should be good. Should be quite a bit of snow. Yay!




So does that mean that all the wineries are not for profit???? Cause otherwise Cesare would be on multiple probations!!!


Edit: Wheeeee!!!

Funny. I have the cabinet on home.woot, got it at crate and barrel a while ago. Really more of a "bar" than a wine cabinet. It's pretty nice.

When it comes to referral linking, there was a whole mess about it a few months back, predominantly in the Deals thread, and I think they considered the entire woot community officially warned at that point. There's definitely been plenty of warnings about not posting referral links in the forums.

My cats are insane. They have a favorite litter box, several that they use sometimes, and then one which they will not use at all. The difference between the favorite and the unused one is the color. That's all. I've moved them around to different locations, used different litter, all that. They love the pink one and will not touch the orange one.

My last cat loved pink toys, almost to the point of exclusivity. Cat logic is odd logic.

I'm just hanging out, really.

*****gross-out alert*****

My 3 cats did exactly the same thing. I finally put used litter ("gently used" - a few deposits, plus all the litter with it. Use the contents of one box and put it in the other) in the box they would not use. After that, they seemed compelled to use it, lol.
Also, if they are covered, change the lids, so one orange lid with one pink box.

That's funny. I was just wondering why my cats use one box over the other. They also prefer the pink one.

Never a dull moment with cats around. I'll try the litter switch, that's an interesting idea. Next time I'm at Walmart, I think I'll get a second pink box and see what they do. These are just big rubbermaid containers, nothing fancy.

Okay, now I'm just curious. As a lazy person, isn't it better if they only use one? Then you only have to change one out? :P

no, some cats won't go where others do... plus if you have multiple cats you would be cleaning it out all the time.....think about it..... multiple cats all using the same potty without flushing......not a pretty sight!!

It always amazes me what cats will use or won't use... I have had some cats that refuse to use a covered box... ahh the things we do for our 4 legged children!!

That's why you get an automatic one!

I have just one cat, and all I have to do is empty a bin once a week or so. Muahaha.

I have 2 cats and FIVE boxes. One cat had an issue with "inappropriate elimination" but that seems to be resolved. I don't want to take a chance with it coming back, though, so the boxes stay. My cats seem to prefer the non-covered giant rubbermaid containers over the smaller covered boxes. The problem with them both using the same box is that it gets nasty in no time flat. Little monsters.

grrrrf... I am so frustrated!!! My dryer is broken...again... for the 100th time... I do have the extended warranty (thank goodness) the repair guy was out on the 1st. had to order parts... parts still not in.... have to wash clothes then take to neighbors house or moms to dry them....... grrrrrrrr the warranty company finally gave me my money back from the washer I bought that ended up being repaired soo many times they gave up.... now I am hoping the do that with my dryer and dishwasher.... but so far all they do is send the repair dude.... I am sure they have put at least 2x what the dryer cost into repairs already.....

I have a cat who will only use the litterbox for #2. He won't use it for #1 unless it is absolutely 100% freshly cleaned. Otherwise, he'll choose to just use the tub for #1. Arggggh!

I think he's just going insane in his old age.

Well, I guess it could be worse - like your shoes, or the bed, or the carpet. Does he at least aim for the drain?
