Thanks, I was planning on getting a bird feeder anyway because I heard they work best for clearing out mosquitos. Anyway, have a good day and thanks again.

Is there a way to repel them from your yard/home? I had no idea what they we're before this year and they're everywhere. I'm hoping someone around here knows more about them and how to avoid them. THANKS ahead of time.

No, although we expected it to be. Our cat was afraid of dust specks (she was extremely timid), so we braced ourselves. But she never blinked at this. If your cat does resist, slowly introduce it into whatever you're using now - start at ~20% and slowly increase the percentage. In any case, it's an inexpensive trial.

Pellet stoves are kind of a specialty item, but if you know someone with one, you might be able to talk them out of a gallon bag of pellets. Or perhaps you can go to a stove store or hardware store and see if they have a broken bag of pellets you can get a small amount from

I'll try it. Thank you!

Nature's herbs are pretty amazing, huh? I have epilepsy and the one thing that has helped me so far is cannabis. I'm thinking about trying nitric oxide supplements. I've heard lots of good things about it. I'm glad she's healing and doing better.

Pan fried, grilled, seared, kabobs, ect. The toughness is not really a issue for me either. It's meat not ice cream. One of my fav is Croc pot roasts with some garlic and onion bullion base, carrots, and celery.

So far the only way I haven't liked deer is when it's cooked like a hamburger....yuck. Other than that I enjoy it. I don't know what it is about it being 'patties', but I'm not a fan.

OMG!!! That sounds so amazing! Thank you! I will definitely be trying this recipe out. I'll upload pics when I do....if I remember anyway. It sounds pretty damn good.

Nice! How long did that take you?

I've heard that that's the best and safest to use. I've thought about trying it for my kitterz, but I'm not sure how they'd feel about me changing it from regular kitty litter. My concern is they'd stop using the cat box. Was that ever an issue for you? I'd rather not have them making messes in the house. LOL My male cat is pretty stubborn....That's why I call him little bastard hahahaha.
