How long have you had the cat? Be hands on with the cat. Pick up the cat, hold the cat close to you, then put down after a few seconds. Let 6 year old sit down on the floor with treats. Let the cat up come up to her and get a treat, and then pets and scratches. You can solve this in one evening. [ Reply | More ]

The reasons for the hate are legitimate, if the people are making the decisions on certain criteria. I'm the 25 year former Manhattanite here, and it's a real choice to be here. I've run into some people where, when I say I'm from Manhattan, they almost desperately want to feed me the name of their NY TT school, because no one up here knows what they are and they are relieved to finally have someone put them into their proper context. I am half joking about this, but half not. Almost 3/4 not. The only ones who don't practically throw out their private school or Stuy or Hunter like a softball are the ones who figure they'll talk about other stuff that makes them important until the bring up stuff like where they actually went to school. And they seem grateful that I do not ask. [ Reply | More ]
