  1. Our first family cats were strays that we or someone else found. One, our family friend found in her barn. The other one my mom found in a parking lot and took home! I'm sure they were both part of litters that were dumped somewhere, because they were both kittens at the time. The cats they have now we're adopted through a foster system, so they get amazing attention and care until they find their forever home. But a lot of people do just get their cats from the cat adopting them. I can't believe someone would through a living creature out of a car. Wow. People can be awful.
  2. I think most people here get cats from shelters. I don't know anyone with a fancy cat breed. There's little point to them too, unless if you have allergies and want a hypoallergenic or naked cat? All cats pretty much do the same thing and act in the same ways, unlike different dog breeds. I've been getting some flack about getting my dog from a breeder, most of them are subtle comments from other dog owners. We decided to go with a breeder because one, an adopted dog can be a lot of work to retrain to how you want to act, they also typically have training and social issues that take a lot of time to train out that we don't really have time for, unfortunately. Second, we also couldn't even find a dog in a size and in any type of breed that would be suitable for our living situation right now, like a breed that doesn't really need a yard to run around in since we live in an apartment, and all of the dogs that weren't too big for us needed that. We weren't going to have an animal in an apartment when it needs to be running around.. a lot. And all the small dogs were Chihuahuas or Chihuahua mixes.... Which we definitely didn't want. We looked for months for a dog and then my boyfriend suggested we go to a breeder. Our dog is also a French Spaniel, which is a rarer breed. So, I think that having a dog of a rare breed and supporting it's preservation is important too, because they are a beautiful breed. Our breeder was fantastic, very knowledgeable, passionate and caring. We had a great experience getting our dog from him and Brandy is beautiful and healthy. I'm really excited to adopt a dog in the future that I can put time and effort into retraining and caring for, but we just aren't at that point in our life right now. I'm sorry for ranting, but it gets really annoying for me. It's not like Brandy is a design dog breed like a pug and is bred to not even breathe. She's gun dog LOL
  3. Yes! That was his pattern too exactly! It was so unique. He was 11 years old and he passed away due to a sudden heart attack since he always had murmur in his heart beat. He was one of the cats I grew up with as a child/teen, but my parents have since adopted a couple other precious cats who we all love so much. One of them has recently become so fat and I don't know how my mom let that happen... I held him for the first time in awhile the other day and it was like I was holding a completely different cat.
  4. Most mail doesn't take that long.. it was also coming from an area close to where I live relative to how big the U.S. is. It was just the state north of mine. It's odd. I'm happy I have it now. I love the art. I also wore my Tiny Tour sweatshirt for the first time today because it was finally cold enough to wear it to class. ALSO.. yikes. The Native American headdress is making me die a little inside. Cultural appropriation is not a good look.
  5. I just received my CD in the past week or so. I don't check my mailbox all too often, but I got my mail pretty recently. That's a really long time to get a CD. It was produced and shipped from the US too so I just don't understand why it took so long.
  6. She's so pretty! Her tabby color reminds me so much of my tabby can I had who passed away. It looks black and gray, right? I haven't seen this kind of coloring too much in cats.
  7. He has incredible spotlights and essentially advertising from Spotify, the top streaming service. That's more important that album placement on the charts these days.
  8. Do you think this is because not as many people buy albums anymore and opt to stream them? This trend has only been going upward since Mika's last album release. I don't think you can even buy albums on iTunes anymore? I don't know, I don't have an iPhone or have I used the service in years. I see no point in buying physical CDs or digital copies because I don't use them. I got three digital copies of this album for a ticket purchase, merch purchase and purchase of a vinyl. They are pushing the digital copies with these things to boost the album on the charts because no many people buy them anymore. It's kind of ricidulous.
  9. I'm actually EXTREMELY upset about this. We were promised to be sent it ON release date. It's unacceptable. Now we have to wait what, 2 months? Who does that?
  10. Um... What? That's so not cool. They should have already made these things ages ago.
  11. I feel so lucky to have such a nice dog and it's been so rewarding so far. We have only had her for 5 days and it's so nice to see how fast she is learning, even though it's exhausted.
  12. She is such a big cuddler, she always wants to sleep on my head especially. It's making kennel training her a nightmare because she is very needy and has a lot of seperation anxiety, but she is so stinking cute. She's gonna be a very loving animal. Good thing too, because a huge reason we got her was for an emotional support animal for me. I feel quite emotional supported already.
  13. Yes, it has talons! It seems a confusing to me too. Maybe if they had a Spotify logo on it, because they obviously have some sort of deal for this record. Or just a simple "album now available" would have worked too.
  14. I'm so confused by this. Is he talking about the American Eagle logo?
