Weird

So I was visiting my cats today and I noticed something interesting. Our younger female cat is significantly smaller than she used to be. She's been on a diet (aka Feeding The Cats What They're Supposed To Be Eating and Not Refilling The Bowl Periodically Throughout the Day When it Seems To Be Low), so this is really nice.

I have a suspicion that it's not just the diet (big shocker, I know). Our newer cats can't jump very well, unlike most cats, who are typically very good jumpers. It's not just that they were too fat or too lazy (although that certainly contributed, I'm sure), but they actually have an issue with their legs that doesn't let them jump easily. I was not aware of this until recently, so it's a big curiosity for me to watch them jump, whenever they do jump. It was bad enough that they couldn't even jump onto our beds. Is that sad? Yes. But it's very annoying for a rather large heavy cat who isn't declawed to constantly tear up the sides of a bedsheet every time he struggles to get up to the top of the bed. So they have a footstool for help.

So I've been noticing that our younger female cat can easily jump from the ground to the top of the bed now. That's... different.

She's been exercising a lot in her little room, though. She has a little corner where there's a stool, an overturned crate, and a cat tree for her to jump on. When you go in there she's always moving around, jumping up, jumping down... I think this has been working as a little exercise regimen for her. On top of that, when she's let out, she runs all over the house. She doesn't like to stay still for very long.

So that's nice to see. She was quite the pudgy little cat before and VERY lazy. Of course, the other cats aren't used to her level of activity, so... that's a problem.

[Doctor Who] You know, for some reason I thought that Americans and whites in particular were the only ones who were this rude to people of other nations. But this has to be one of the rudest, most racist pieces of television I've seen. People can't tell their own fellows apart because they all look alike? Really? And then you make fun of the way they walk and run? SERIOUSLY?

This... show... uggggh...

Oh. Oh please don't. Really just don't. Oh god, they're interfering in the actions of a foreign power to put someone friendly to their cause in power.

-headdesk-

Oh please, teach the stupid barbarians. Also, advanced as they are, they can't pick up poisoned water. That's why they're barbarians. THIS SHOW.

Oh right. Good foreigners are nice to us. Bad ones are mean. THIS SHOW...

Anyway... I've been reading and writing and working on LSAT homework and ignoring class in order to text half a dozen people and I feel like an ass, but honestly most of it wasn't helpful.

[Doctor Who] Oh wow. Oh wow was that a SEX JOKE? WAS THAT A SEX JOKE IN A SEASON FROM THE FIRST DOCTOR IN THE 60s???? WAS THAT...

Think I'll go finish my book and take care of some stuff from my phone. Ta.
