PBFW has been on a roll this past week with all sorts of brillance.

From Friday...
- She told us her left neck hurts. We're still trying to figure that one out
- She didn't know what equine meant (or how to spell it) so Nancy and I told her. When she asked how we knew that word, Nancy told her it was because she and I read. PBFW went to say that she also read, but Nancy told her that she didn't know that Clinton wasn't still in the presidential race, so she couldn't talk
- She informed us we were not in church

From today...
- She asked who Paul Newman was. And who Sarah Palin is.
- She wanted to know what Netflix are
- She didn't know what apocolypse meant
- She said after hours of being in our insanely hot office "man, it's hot in here".

There's never a dull moment. And it's nice to know while the economic shit hits the fan, PBFW still has no clue

Things that make my brain hurt, volume 4368739874343

- The guy outside the gym chain smoking. Why?

- The need for 10 strips of bacon to be on every fast food sandwich. Don't get me wrong, I dig bacon. There has to come a time where enough is enough with bacon though.

- This woman from accouting at one of the companies I deal with. She's just so stupid. We only charged the mailer $8 per thousand for something but they have a select cap of $10 per thousand and she wants to know why we didn't charge her $10 per thousand. That would be like if you were out shopping and you had a budget of $250 and the things you wanted cost $235. It would be arguing that you should give someone $250 because that's what you had to give them. No. No no. You lose

So Jamie dropped his phone in the toliet and now it doesn't work. He does not find that funny. Everyone else in my family does.

Last night, I came home from the gym, saw the fatty tubby baby Oliver and put him outside in the garage. That is where he sleeps at night. I still had my shoes on and it was almost 10 PM and I figured my mom would ask me to do it anyway. I come back in the house, go downstairs to check my email and then...this exchange happens. Will is upstairs in the kitchen and my dad is in the living room. My mom was upstairs and then came downstairs

**walks into kitchen**
Mom: Where's Oliver?
Will: Sarah put him away
**walks into living room**
Mom: Where's Oliver?
Dad: Sarah put him away in the garage
**goes over to the side door and calls for Oliver then walks back into the living room**
Mom: Where is Oliver?
**calls down the stairs**
Mom: Sarah, did you put Oliver away in the garage?
Me: Nope, I threw him outside and hoped for the best

Even though everyone told her, she decided not to listen. Fabulous.

It's been a while

Me: there was something on the radio this morning about soy lowering sperm counts
PBFW: I don’t have sperm

You have got to be kidding me

So my friend Dana at work emailed a lady about adopting a cat. This is the email conversation. I can't even take this. Who are these people and WHERE do they come from? The point is that Ollie goes outside and has a ball. It's not like Dana lives in the big city. She just wanted a pet. Guess not....

Thanks for responding. I have to say your email kind of shocked me. Just because we rescue a kitten from outside does not mean you let it go outside. You never ever ever let a cat outside. I think its extremely selfish and cruel. There is nothing outside that a cat needs. Not to mention it can get fleas, tickes, ear mites, worms and all those shots the cat gets is pointless.
Unless a cat is feral which cant come inside.
This kitten can never go outside. She is to young for her shots or spay.

What happen to all the cats you said you have had that were in door outdoor?

Again we appreciate your email and look forward to your responce! =)

WOW. The cats that I had that were indoor/outdoor were fine. I have always lived in houses with big yards so all of our animals would come and go as they pleased, dogs, cats, we even let our horses out of their field every once in awhile to roam the yard. The cats slept inside, ate inside, they just like to go outside every once in awhile and play in the grass and chase the bugs and I don’t see any harm in that. They are an animal, animals like the outdoors. The one cat that I tried to keep as indoor cat hated it, and started peeing on everything. It wasn’t until I moved in with my father and he literally could not keep her in (he had a cat flap door for his other cat) that I realized she was peeing all over because she wanted to go outside. She has never done it again, and she couldn’t be happier.

Your email shocks me saying that it is cruel to let a cat outside and that there is nothing outside for a cat. That boggles my mind. I am not saying there is anything wrong with having a strictly indoor cat, but saying that having an indoor/outdoor one is cruel is just odd to me. Most cat owners I know have cats that go in and out as they please. Cats are independent creatures and keeping them locked in a house all day, everyday if they don’t want to be, is cruel.

Anyways, I understand that she is young, that is why I was asking how young.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

As i understand your feelings i have been doing cat rescue for over 15 years now. 60% of the rescues i get calls on are " lost cats" or cats getting hit by cars" Cats are NOT meant to go outside. They are not locked in a house they are LIVING in a house. Cats are not like humans where if a human lives in a house never going outside yes that is cruel . You are confusing the two. Subjecting a cat who has absolutly no clue about cars or if a dog comes and attacks or if someone throws things at them chases them, is so selfish anc cruel to me. lets say a cat see's a squirl running, do you think the cat will wait for a green light to chase it across or it will just run? Yes cats are smart but no not when it comes to the dangers of outside. Im sorry but i 100% disagree and yes its exremly selfish to let a cat outside. So what if you had afence cats can climb a fence in 3 seconds. Your cat did not pee as a "sign to go outside. I cant believe youd think that. Perhaps it had a urinary infection. THATS why cats pee outside the litter box, perhaps it didnt like the litter. but no not because it wanted to go outside? You are subjecting it to so much danger. They are not human and do not know the dangers outside.
Where are those cats now that you say you had? Where they all spayed and neueterd?

Of course they were all spayed and neutered. What do you think I am? Look, I am just a young lady looking for a pet, and we obviously agree to disagree on this here. I am not confusing a cat with a human. I have my college degree I am not some idiot off the street, thank you. And I guess your right; my cat had a UTI and didn’t like any of the cat litters I tried for a year. OOOPS.

I understand you guys in are new haven, I have lived in the country my whole life and maybe we have different ways of treating our pets because you are honestly the only person I have ever spoken with that is 100% against allowing cats outdoors. And actually try to tell people who do so that they are “selfish” and “cruel”. I have to be the farthest from those two words.

Out of the many cats I have had my entire life I had one that has been hit by a car. And trust me, I have had many. I grew up with animals all over; rabbits, dogs, chickens, horses….. I am not an ignoramus that all of a sudden thought it would be fun to adopt a stray kitten….. More like a caring adult who wanted to, out of the goodness of her heart adopt this young kitten. I have been looking around for awhile and thought that I would rather adopt one that needed a companion, needed a little extra attention.

Well thank you for your time.

that one cat you had that got hit by a car was because of your neglagince, remmber that. By you saying "only one", is so offensive . So i guess his life meant nothing,

Hope that taught you a lesson- guess not.

I do not think you should own any cats- sorry.

I think you are crazy. And I discussed this conversation with a few people and they all thought the same thing. Its life. Get used to it.

You put an awful lot of judgement on someone you don’t know. And I would not take an animal from you ever. I think you are the one that is getting the whole animal/human concept confused.

Peace out.

I think you and whom ever you spoke to are the same peolpe who have killed their cats by selfish and lack of knowledgment. Remember you killed your cat by letting it out side , not us, so whose crazy? Imagine how your cat felt getting smashed in the face by a 1000 pound car, all because you thought it HAD to go outside. Sure cats obey traffic signs to right? They must go outside right? Or else they are not happy? Or because your stupid? Remember how your cat suffered because of YOU not us ALL YOU. Laying there dead in the street thinking why wasnt my mommy there to protect me? Nope she was inside on her cell phone thinking me a cat has a clue about crossing the street. But i guess my life wasnt worth it to her since hey " im just one cat".

You are the exact type of person shelters and rescue people hate and stay away from. You are the reason so many cats are lost or get killed by cars.

I suggest you do not own any cats in the future. I do not think you are educated enough to handle what it takes to be a responsible pet owner.

The last thing we need at our house

So on the 4th of July, we had fireworks. That's so appropriate. Will set them out in the backyard and the first one he lit off went well. Then the second one was lit. The first 2 parts were fine. Then the morter thing fell over. 3 of the explosions rocketed off into the pine trees, which are filled with pine needles. Then 2 headed over to my neighbors house and if it wasn't for some more pine trees over there, they would have been in his garage.

After Will wiped the poo out of his pants, he said that he wouldn't be doing that again. Good call, dude.
