When I say dumb, I say it with sincerity and love.

Seriously. SO dumb. And they have bad eyesight so if you have one on your shoulder be careful because he might try to jump off. But they can also be super clever, especially if it involves either food or escape.

I love cats too, my two big boys are awesome. They want love all the damn time but are mostly gentle about it. The ferrets don't necessarily want love/affection... they want you to play with them and chase them. Or run away squealing because apparently that is just hilarious to a ferret.

I'll take my cat, thanks.

She likes it a lot better because I at least try to talk to her.

What ferrets really want you to do is leave all of your socks and chocolate covered nuts laying unattended for a few minutes. You'll find them eventually. Maybe.

Ferrets are awesome. I cannot keep them because my girl is allergic. But otherwise ...

Besides, a two year old (one of which we have) is comparable in energy level to a ferret.

Yeah my ferrets' "treats" are 1) getting to give me kisses after I've eaten something yummy and 2) getting socks thrown at them. Though they also have tons of toys of their own, but they're not nearly as fascinating as SOCKS.

I talk to my cats and ferrets in their language as well... I copy the cats when they make weird noises, like merp and murfle and meh. And the ferrets of course I dook at. Or just sing them songs. It all looks and sounds pretty ridiculous.

My boyfriend thinks I'm weird. Hell, I think I'm weird.

I had a very long conversation with one of my cats about food when I was most recently at my mum's. She looked a little perplexed and kept telling me "I'm hungry!" and I kept saying "I'm hungry too!" in cat, and we just went back and forth until she realised that I wasn't going to give her any food.

When I was in middle school I had two ferrets.  I went to an urban public school and so each day every Xth person (where x is a random number between 3 and) was scanned with a handheld metal detector and had their bag searched.  One day, in class, I dug around in my backpack to find a pen and found 3 socks, a barbie head and a pocket knife.  My bag had obviously been used as a ferret stash the night before without me noticing.  If I had been scanned that morning the pocket knife would have gotten me suspended for the rest of the year, and possible sent to the school for troublemakers.

Dear neighborhood dog,
Your unfailing joy and friendliness are an inspiration, but do you give yourself enough credit for providing an emotional anchor to a 13-year-old who lost both her parents?
Tell us a little more.

The 13-year-old suddenly appeared in the neighborhood because our neighbors were in her parents's will as emergency guardians. Her father died suddenly of a heart attack. I forget how and when she lost her mother. We keep meeting her as she walks the dog, a small beaglish thing. It was months and months before the first time we saw her smile.

I talk to my animals in both their language and mine. One of the reasons I miss my cat Waffles is because we'd have conversations. He'd meow, I'd say something back, he'd meow, etc. I can do this a few times with Hobbes and Kisa, but Waffles would go on and on, I loved it.

Spatz (the younger of the two cats who recently passed away) used to complain.  All the time.  At least, it always sounded like she was complaining.  I'd answer her, ask "What?  What's wrong?", listen for a few, and then explain how I couldn't really help more if she wasn't going to be more specific.  We could keep it going for quite a while...

Meanwhile I'd feed her, pet her, whatever it seemed she wanted.  It never stopped the complaining, though!

We used to have a cat who (as soon as we were awake, but before we actually got out of bed) would complain loudly.  I interpreted this as her saying. "Nobody has ever fed me in my entire life", and "Nobody has ever petted me in my entire life", and "Nobody has ever let me out in my entire life". 

She would continue complaining as I petted her, fed her and let her out. 

I believe that her major complaint was not being let out, because when she came back in, she would not complain anymore until the next morning.

Hobbes doesn't have conversations. He just bellows to himself every once in a while. Kisa will meow at me when I open the bathroom door, but then will run away when I try to exit said bathroom. (She waits outside every time one of us goes in there.) She looks confused when I meow at her and Hobbes generally looks disinterested. Unless we make fun of this weird "wawa" sound he sometimes makes, then he looks offended.

Dear Whoever Designed the Valentine's Day Google Doodle,



You literally made me squeak this morning. It is insanely adorable and the carnival thing is blowing my mind. I am one of those people who gets really excited about silly little coincidences and the fact that today's Doodle shares the same theme as my upcoming wedding seriously makes me giddy. *Squeeeeee*

It's not exactly a Valentine's Day doodle; it's for the inventor of the Ferris Wheel, who was born on this date.

But it's Valentine's Day as well. Click the heart button in the bottom center, and it shows lots of animals falling in love. And it's adorable. And little cheese, you're adorable.

I think the fact that George Ferris- the inventor of arguably the most romantic invention on the planet- was born on Valentine's Day is the cutest coincidence ever. My favorite animal coupling in the doodle is the octopus and the duck. That cracked me up.


And Neko- d'awwwww. Thanks! Takes one to know one  :wink:

Dear Eva and Tom,
thank you for still being around despite all the shit I threw in your way. I know we had times when we barely got along, but I can't tell you how much your friendship means to me. I am aware that I sometimes have problems with how close you still are despite being together for so long, but know that I'm not acting out of unacceptance. Instead, the irritation and anger was always directed at myself, for failing to have what seems to come so easily to you. I struggled for a very long time with my past, and seeing your joy made me miss that which I couldn't have.
Despite everything, you have always been there for me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me to learn to continue, and wish you the very best and more.

yours, Mp.

Dear Dr. Kennedy:

You are amazing. Thank you for everything you have done for my cat - I couldn't have afforded his surgery without your willingness to discount your own services.

Dear friends:

Thank you for your support, monetary and otherwise, during this difficult time. I am so lucky to have such great people in my life.

Dear super adorable handsome awesome boy I spoke to for most of last evening:

Thank you for making me smile and taking my mind off the drama and stress I have been dealing with. I'm glad I got to know you better <3

Dear other cute boy that I have been spending most of my time with lately:

I'm glad that you are able to talk to me about your dad's medical issues. I know they are difficult for you to handle and I am just glad that I can be there for you.


Since when did I have so many attractive AND nice friends?

Dear Dave,

We've never met, and I only know you as a friend of my wife's from high school.  But when you heard about what happened with our van, you offered us the one you used to use to pull your camper - a spare vehicle that's a bit old, but in really good shape.  I appreciate that you're only asking what a junkyard would pay you for it for scrap - $300 for a decent running car is a blessing in our situation. 


I'll be climbing on a greyhound later this week - it's a shame you live down in VA, a 7 hour trip by car (so 13 on the bus).  But It will be a pleasure to meet you!

Dear shy cat,

I was touched when you got on my lap and decided after a long time that you could safely relax rolled over on your back.

I hope I understood you correctly that the message you were sending was not "I trust you to rub my belly" but rather "I trust you not to rub my belly".

Dear Japan,

I have fallen madly, deeply and passionately in love with one of your own during my time in your green and beautiful (with a side order of emerging cyberpunk dystopia) country. Always nearby, always helpful, always able to give me exactly what I need in this life, to satisfy the requirements of body, mind, and occasionally soul. Oh how I long to import you to the United States.






I'm talking of course about Japanese vending machines.

Gotcha ;)

I did meet some lovely and companionable Japanese women over there, my friend Tomoko in particular. You know you're at the start of a great relationship with a new friend when you spend an hour and a half talking using only thirty odd words of English, thirty odd words of Japanese and google translate to communicate.
