Re: Re: chat messages

That's an excellent idea, Melody!  She's so scared at the vets she behaves.
She was a feral young adult when we rescued her.  But she's still super
wary, although she's very sociable - follows us around all the time.  If I'm
on the couch she likes to climb under a throw with me, and then she'll let
me comb her head and shoulders, in fact she behaves as though she likes it.
But touch haunches or rear end - no way!  So she's soft and silky in the
front half, and tangle city in the rear.  Yup she's a funny-looking critter!
I've pinned her down a couple times since I wrote the question, and have
managed to cut out a few snarls on her hip.  Have a long way to go, though.

I think I'll try to find some of the pet wipes Kitty mentioned - those would
come in handy now and then.

Anybody know if cicadas compost well?  I'm thinking probably not (be
equivalent to meat, wouldn't they?).
