New Cat!

Almost two weeks ago, I got called to one of the dorms to meet with a girl who believed a van stopped in front of her and tossed out a cat.  Obviously horrible people, who we can only hope somehow get eaten by tigers if true.  Following protocol, I notified the Humane Society, and they came and took custody of said feline.

The downside was, I'm a sucker for pretty girls with long hair and blue eyes (just ask the wife...)  So, I gave the Humane Officer my name and phone number, in case nobody claimed such a cute little girl in the required seven days.

This morning I picked her up (cops can have hearts!)  She's not big on car rides.

"I've been kidnapped by a crazy guy!"

Once home she settled right down.  Lady Isadora, Duchess of Burroughs (named for the street she was ditched on, and the dorm she was found at,) or 'Sadie' for short, is apparently quite happy to be out of the pound.

She asks you don't make fun of the naked tummy. They messed with her lady bits.

Clingy cat is clingy. Hopefully Lila doesn't feel she's butting in on her game.

The poor thing was declawed in the front too, so hopefully the other two don't get too rough.  It is interesting getting kneeded by a cat without claws though.  Hopefully the others aren't complete bullies when we lift the isolation orders (small steps for now.  Somebody hisses when she's in the carrier.)

Although she could care less about the other cat smells in her little sanctuary.

I think she's just happy to have a window.

Survival Coffee

For you prepper types, don't forget the coffee!

720 servings for under $100 with free shipping and a 25 year shelf life.  I don't know if it tastes any good, but it's an important supply regardless.  I would be interested in trying some though!

Crazy Bike...

Is crazy.

I don't think I'll ever get tired of watching him ride.

Apex M&P Basepads

These should solve the problem of my M&P mags occasionally disassembling themselves.

Plus $35 gets you enough to do four mags.  I'll definitely be picking some up.

Oh the sights that you will see!

The ever evolving M&P9... I was not a fan of the sloping rear sight shape of the Trijicons that came on the gun, so I figured I'd hit two birds with one stone and try out a more simplified sight picture while I'm at it.  10-8 Performance makes some outstanding accessories for various guns, and their M&P Rear Sight fit the bill for everything I'm looking for.  Plain black, with serrations to cut down on glare, and I'm a fan of the theory of the U-notch.  Plus it has a good front edge for one-handed manipulations, something the sloping Novak style ramp lacks.

Range report and whatnot to follow.

Quality Time

With the issue heater.

I should have grabbed some TMNJ dvds to round out the Saturday morning feel.
