    [–] My cat realizing I am watching him do what I have repeatedly told him not to do StoicSalamander 2 points ago in aww

    Not at all, actually! But I'd told him to scram a few times already so when he saw me staring at him he knew.

    [–] The lines in my guitar look like either a Yorkie, or the top half of a skull depending on how you look at it StoicSalamander 2 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    Yes it is! It's Zebrawood. My dad bought it for me many years back, I absolutely adore it. I think it plays very well - I've not played any high end guitars, though, so I don't have much of a comparison. It holds it's tune wonderfully and is a joy to play. Absolutely one of my favorites of all my instruments. I'm impressed you recognize it so fast, do you work at a guitar retailer? Or just an enthusiast?

    I can't imagine how much work has gone into that quilt. It's incredible!

    No, he only wanted to toss it around but I still don't want to encourage it. I don't have it just 'laying around,' I was using it.

    It's this one. We like it a lot. I miss red octane ones too!

    DDR mats have universally low reviews so it's hard to pick one to buy but I've had no issues with this one!

    It's this one.

    Don't mind the reviews, dance pads have universally not good reviews no matter what. It works pretty good.

    I've never laid a harsh hand on him. Worst he's ever had is a spray bottle and a scoot with a foot. He's just dramatic.

    I usually have multiple scratchers per floor, of different kinds because they don't use the posts as much as the cheap cardboard ones from the pet store. I can scent them with catnip too. Usually I'll put a few I'm the area of what I don't want them to scratch, and if they do they get a spray bottle and a Stern 'no' and ideally redirect to the other scratchers.

    There are a lot of guides on learning to get your cat used to nail trims! It takes a while going slow but it's worth it. I've used rubber claw caps too with great success. Both mine their claws clipped short and generally are good about using designated scratch pads.

    3 inches isn't long enough to get tangled in the GI tract, but if the tails are easy to get loose then I'd cut them off anyways. No sense in risking a cat eating any nom edible thing.

    It is dangerous enough to kill them if they manage to eat it. He just wanted to toss it around but I don't want to encourage it.

    After this he snuck around the couch and smacked at my toes. He was definitely in a playful mood, and ripped around the basement like a nut for a solid half hour.

    All I have to do is say 'hey!' or 'get!' And if that doesn't work, move like I'm going to get the spray bottle. I rarely need it, usually just telling him to get is enough. He's just dramatic about it.
