Cat toys.

I’m sure anybody who has a cat knows that they can be ridiculously picky about the toys they like — buy them a $5 toy from PetSmart and they play with the plastic wrapper, and so on. I’ve found one toy, though, that has never failed to keep my kitties amused, and you can make it yourself.

Take two pre-made gift bows, peel off the wax paper covering the sticky pads, and stick them together. Crinkle it a little bit to get your cat’s attention, then chuck it down the hall. My cats go absolutely fucking berserk over these things, and they cost me maybe 25c apiece. Strangely, the pre-made crinkly balls don’t do a thing for them; I think it’s because the gift bows I use have loops of material, which gives them something to hook a claw into and send it flying in unpredictable directions.

A/C not working right?

Ok so I had an AC guy come out and put in some Freon. After about 2 weeks of me setting the thermostat on 67-69 degrees and the house being at 76-79 degrees I decided he didn’t do something right. I call someone else, they come in, say the previous person over charged it with Freon. So I pay the necessary money for him to remove what I previously paid for. Now, two days later, and even hotter outside, I am having the same problem only worse!!

I run the thermostat at 65 no less and the house during 2pm until about 2am is at 76+ degrees. Which is TOO HOT for me. So I am not sure what to do from here. Both AC guys said there was no leak or any other problems. The only similar issue was that the upstairs attic portion of the unit was just old and not the best compatibility with the newer outside unit.
