    but our feet are nice! Look how nice the bottom of her foot is! If you are going to complain, I'll post the bottom of mine. The uneven running callus catches fuzz from the bathroom rug. It's quite appealing, I assure you.

    why are there such large cultural differences with putting "in memory of..." stickers on cars?

    Oh, with the 2 posted, it's not so bad, but then you threw in your man's janky ones, and I just don't want this thread ending up in an alley in a seedy section of town flagging down cars and asking them if they want to do some foot stuff.

    I couldn't park in the garage tonight cause my garage opener failed. Is four years the lifespan of a 12 volt battery thingy?

    Good question. I wouldn't ever put one on my car. I just feel as though there are better methods of memoriam. What's the appeal?

    I told him to clip those things this week and I don't think he did. But his fingernails he keeps clipped within 1mm of the non clippy part of the nail.

    However, if a cat goes outside, it needs those claws.

    I don't know that it was the fact that the cat was declawed that made it hide. Cats don't adapt well to changes in their environment, even if their "staff" make the change with them. When we moved to our acreage, we brought three cats with us. Two were nervous, but the third found a cupboard door she could open, and she went in there and wouldn't come out for more than a quick litter box trip and a couple of bites of food...

    ours are all born and grow up in the barn so they are used to it. This one was not though. We had some shelter cats given to us and for the first week we kept them in a separate little chicken coop with food so they could adapt. As they got used to the sights and sounds, they ventured out as they got comfortable.

    hmm, I guess I have no way of knowing if the battery was new upon bestowing to me. Probably not.

    You know that all you have to do is pull the release and you can lift the garage door, right? Channel locks on the side to keep it open and voila, you're in the garage.


    Hoiberg: I have a unique situation here. I grew up here. I went to college here. My family is close and my wife's family is close. I know everyone in the community and my family is very comfortable here. My daughter has dreamed about one thing and that's going to Iowa State. The NBA is great and I love the NBA, but I love Iowa State and the opportunity I have here. We've really built something special and I think we've got real momentum to keep it going even more.

    I should add...it's only the front claws, and we opt for the laser technique that is less invasive and heals faster. To me, it's much the same as clipping dewclaws and tail docking on hunting dogs.

    Actually, the vet strongly recommended that we at least remove the claws on Molly's extra toes, as those are not retractable. They tend to snag and tear the toes (like the dewclaws).

    yeah, they have a door that I think I could go in and unlock, but then I'd have to do it to get out too. And good open lot spots were available so I took one of those.
