Are we bad people for laughing at the mishaps of kids?
I have 2 male cats that are littermates who are approximately 2.5 years old. We adopted them at about 10 weeks, and had them both neutered at approximately 4 months old. Up to this point they’ve done everything together, they eat together (they have separate bowls), sleep together, play together, and groom each other. They have countless toys, even random articles around the house that aren’t really toys that they play with. They have a 5 foot tall, 2 tiered kitty condo, plenty of places to be with each other, and plenty of places to be on their own. They have their occasional spat and wrassle with each other, but nothing gruesome.
2 days ago, at 5:30am (when they usually get breakfast) they started fighting, legitimately fighting. They were screaming at each other, tackling each other, growling, hissing, yowling, chasing each other around. It was frightening to witness. They didn’t attack us when we separated them, but the beta male of the two spent the whole day in hiding, and crawled low to the ground when he came out for food/water/litter box.
Yesterday, again at 5:30am, they had another intense battle/stand-off. Again, the beta male of the two spent the day in hiding. The alpha male had a tuft of fur stuck in his claw, so I went to take it out like I usually do when I see this. However, this time the fur was stuck, and when I pullled he screamed at me and ran away. We grabbed him again. This time i had my mom hold him and push out his claw as if we were going to trim them. The tuft still wouldn’t budge, he screamed and yowled, and I noticed the base of his nail was bloody. He had another tuft stuck on a different nail on the same paw. This tuft came off with a little force, but again the base of the nail was a little bloody. I’ve concluded that he pretty severely splintered both of those nails. The beta male seems relatively, physically unharmed.
Today, they fought in the morning at 5:30, and have been standing off with each other all day complete with hissing, growling, and tail puffing.
Why is this suddenly happening? Is there a such thing as “Terrible Two’s” for cats???

The girl who played young Aurora here was Angelina’s daughter because she was the only one who didn’t run away when she saw her in her Maleficent costume
This looks like an interaction I’d have with a child
THE ANIMALS IN DISNEY ARE RAVENOUS BEASTS LET ME TELL YOU WHAT THEY SEE FOOD AND THEY WILL COME
Given this isn’t Disney, but miles down the road at Sea World there was a squirrel that approached us while we were eating ice cream. We offered it a piece of our waffle bowl, and he took it with one hand, put it in his mouth, and gently placed his other hand on my hand. He did that cute little gesture every time we gave him a piece. He was a very polite squirrel.
That’s actually a nifty way to get past the “omg the water’s too cold” bit.I don’t understand why this trick is all over the internet only now.futurebruinsathletictrainershowed me this way back in freshman year and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.
I showed you freshman year of college, and I learned it 4 years before that during freshman year of high school. So like you, I’m very surprised this is just showing up
#i seriously do not understand i mean he’s the cutest sweetest guy to ever exist and i would have taken the damn #peanuts because why the hell does it matter if he’s short and scrawny he’s amazing and cares so much for other people #and it hurts to think that for so long he was looked down on and looked at like /that/ girl is #he’s offering you some fucking peanuts why do you look like he just offered you a handful of boogers #godammit i love steve rogers and i don’t care if he’s captain america or not he’s a wonderful human being that deserves love and happiness #and respect and people should aspire to be like him (via themouthymerc)
I would have been all over that
I just want everyone to see how unrealistic some expectations are.
people shave their legs everyday..?
Who has the time
The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting FREE FOOD donated every day to abused and neglected animals in their shelters.
It takes less than a minute (only about 15 seconds actually) to go to their site and click on the purple box titled, ‘Click Here to Give - it’s FREE!’. Every click gives about .6 bowls of food to sheltered dogs. You can also click daily!
Keep in mind that this does not cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising. [via.]
Go to the website HERE.
It’s just a click… takes about 1 or 2 seconds.
there’s no pop-up ads or anything on the site
just click it once and you’re done
if all of my followers click, it’s more than a few thousand meals so.. please?
My coworker NEVER cleans up after himself, and it aggravates me that I know it will stay messy unless I clean it up.
It’s the simplest shit too. He leaves open/empty gauze packaging all over the taping stations, doesn’t put bottles/tape/padding back where he got them from, and it basically looks like a bomb went off on our taping tables.
His desk is no better. He’ll wipe his mouth on a piece of paper towel, and instead of throwing that in the trash, he puts it in his desk drawer. It’s fucking DISGUSTING!
His wife must be a saint! I guarantee you, if he’s this messy at work, it’s probably not much different for his home life.
Just how I love a Christine without a ballet background.
Glad I’m not the only one who noticed when I saw the show. Still an epic performance; had chills practically the whole time
Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
I support this 100%, but I can’t tell if my, albeit, mysogynistic, older brother made a good point: Confident women in leadership roles are called bossy/bitchy, but confident men in leadership roles are called dicks….I know according to the statistics listed above, women are held back because of these seeming derogatory labels, and men don’t seem to be, but both terms for both genders could be seen as derogatory, but girls/women seem to take it more seriously.
I REALLY DON’T WANT TO AGREE WITH MY BROTHER!!! D:
So the men’s hockey team was at the equipment window returning their things since the season’s over.
While I was walking past them, one of them looked at me and said “What’s up Paltrow” since that’s their nickname for me. I did the biggest double take ever because this particular athlete had long hair and scruffy looking beard the entirety of the season, and now he’s got a fresh hair cut and trim scruff. I truly did not recognize him!
But the thing is, he was attractive when he was scruffy and unkempt, but now it’s like way beyond that, and I literally just was like
