bug-cats or cat-bugs? That is the real question.

I’m finally breaking out the fall flannels! I’ve already thought of my Halloween costume too. UwU

I went to a dinner fundraiser for an animal rehab center (nonprofit) and it was pretty cool. I thought I was just going with an older friend (basically adoptive grandma), but it was a gaggle of old ladies. They're more fun than you think. Her sister drives like a maniac and I had to deal with that on the way home.

They gave away the center pieces on the tables too. Mine sat on a little piece of log. I only wanted the log to paint on lol. The center piece went to mom.

I recently got a floor length mirror that my 14 year old puppy can actually see herself in. It's been out for days, and the barking at herself has stopped, but once in a while she still gets a bit puzzled by her reflection. Yesterday, I was watching her watch us in the mirror while listening to soothing piano music, and petting her & it was just one of those small moments of "wow, my life is so nice."

Did you know that the flu shot and covid shots can cause rare diseases? Including the flu's themselves?
Yes, I know that covid shots can cause rare diseases or side effects. But, I don't know much about the flu. I guess it is possible since the Polio epidemic in the northeast right now is said to have started from a polio vaccine.

technically anything can have adverse reactions
there's no medical procedure or treatment or medicine without SOME risk of hurting you
however, the risk of actually catching a virus or having whatever the medicine is trying to stop is substantially greater

Yeah I have done research on it at NORD which is a rare disease website as my youngest came down with MFSyndrone after covid this year. They thought is was Guillian Barr but thank God it was the other one. The flu shot and covid shot amoung others can cause these rare diseases. I have never took a flu shot and don't intend to either. But Joe didn't have one and still caught it. So just a word of warning.

We had another alligator in our neighborhood last evening (lots of street flooding this week) and a large black throated Savannah monitor was caught not far away. The iguana population has also exploded. Local conservationists have discussed the possibility of capturing and eating the iguanas. Restaurants started serving the invasive lionfish a few years ago... looks like iguana may be added to some menus.

They say it tastes like chicken. 🥺
Oh my god FL is wild fr
