I am bottle feeding a kitten, so I got up well before dawn and took care of that. The mother cat just abandoned the baby. Usually my wife takes care of this kind of thing but she's not here right now.
You test the temperature by letting a drop or two fall on your wrist, just like you did when you had babies in the house. I used to walk the babies at night and feed them so my wife could get some sleep. Kittens are not much different.
Percy is settling in nicely. I have some pictures of him now, but I need to hook my camera to my computer and download them. I have to unhook some of my other equipment to do that, so I am waiting til I have enough pictures to make it worth while.
He is very affectionate. Percy must have been carried and picked up a good bit at his previous home, since he's underfoot all the time, begging to be carried.
He's very strong. I watched him mock fight two of the cats yesterday and it was the cats who finally turned tail and took off, not Percy.
He has to have fresh ferret chow. If the food has been on his saucer for more than a few hours, he won't eat it. This is not proving to be a problem as the cats eat his food. It figures, since ferret chow is the most expensive of all the animal feeds I buy.
I have always enjoyed the Jason Bourne movies. I bought the DVD's for the preceding shows. The nice theater up at the lake is showing the new Bourne movie. I would like to go see it, but after I found out Matt Damon was anti-gun, and was making scathing statements about gun owners, I decided not to see his movies anymore. Look at what he said up above, and how stupid it was.
So, you are attacked in the parking lot while leaving a restaurant, by a knife wielding Goblin who wants to rob you, and do who knows what to your wife. Would you not want to kill him? I would. I get tired of Hollywood convoluted logic like this. I won't spend any money to support it. Too bad for me, guess I'll have to find something else to watch.
I've been doing more research on the state of the military. It's not good. After eight years of a Democratic regime, look where we are now. After eight more years of Hillary, I wonder if we will have any military left at all. Since the military is the last trustworthy institution left in America, there are all sorts of negative ramifications of running it down like this. And with the morons in congress interfering in planning, we are still building mega-billion dollar systems like boomer submarines, but don't have enough small arms ammunition for marksmanship training. I wasn't kidding when I said the Marines are scavenging parts from the mothball fields to keep their FA-18's flying, and 75% of the FA-18 fleet is not 100% operational, for lack of parts.
I took the dogs down to the creek yesterday so they could swim. There's a deep water pool there under the trees, where my kids used to swim in summer. Unfortunately for me, clouds of mosquitoes came swarming out and I got eaten alive. I don't remember there being mosquitoes down by the pool before. Well, I can be a guinea pig for Zika virus. The news says it's coming here anyway.
Here are a few books you might want to run down for your collection, prior to Hillary taking over as President.
Because when she takes over, everyone will have to make some tough decisions.
