Five Feline Traits

Dailymail ran an article on cats' personality mirroring their owner's and it led to a link to a personality quiz for my kitty. In a nutshell there are five feline traits: Skittishness, Outgoing, Dominance, Friendliness and Spontaneity. Her results come across as mostly accurate, but I'm also the person who filled out the survey so it would be very strange if they didn't. She's typical on most, a high outlier on Outgoing and Skittishness and low on Spontaneity. They mention indoor cats tend to rank Friendlier, but taking a closer look it also impacts the Spontaneity score. She's lower than I would have guessed from my survey responses, so there's a weighted variable factor in play of the indoor/outdoor hours per day, FYI. 

Figured I'd share the links if anyone is interested, you get a report emailed to you that explains the characteristics and has a graph showing where they fall compared to other cats!

I'm awake because of the cat and her made up games, this is first time she's had stairs and the novelty of sprinting them in her made up obstacle courses hasn't worn off. Her speed racer trilling is loud, but I appreciate that she cheers herself on. I don't know if that's one of the mirrored behaviors discussed in the article and project, because I too actively encourage myself and did so while cleaning out the fridge (whole other bucket of self examination there). 

She's a sweet cat, for the most part just wants to be wherever I am and opens door handles to get her way, bathroom included. She brings me toys to play with her, brings me her favorite bottle caps when I have a migraine and puts them in the bed to cheer me up. 

I'm a bit nervous about our future, my ex is really wanting her to come live with him or fly her out for a visit. I've got to do more research on it, he paid all of the adoption and vet fees, but also let me bring her when I moved. He can get very stubborn and currently has the upper hand financially, but I don't think it's good for her anxiety to start flying her about.

If you take the survey let me know how your kitty ranks and how accurate you think it is!

      Oh my Lord Adam Waller sounds like a bundle of nerves. Going through a twin pregnancy and having to support your husband through his increasing anxieties must have been awful for Valerie.

      Also Adam's extensive research into all things conception and birth related appeared to have skipped the bit were identical twins have to be same sex (apart from 2 documented cases I think). Why were they thinking of names for a boy/girl combination?!

      We are done with God for now. Because starving brains can't learn, we're back to all foods are proteins, fat, carbohydrates, everything is chemicals, and you can't eat anything that's bad for you because your liver will protect you. The same song and verse. Feel free to skip this one if you read it last week.

      What about Organic Foods?

      All foods are composed of just water, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and trace (tiny) amounts of vitamins and minerals. Proteins, carbohydrates [CHO], and fats are made up of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Proteins add nitrogen to their chemical structures.

      These are organic molecules—organic just means that the molecule contains carbon. You do not have to go to the health food store for good organic foods. They are displayed at every grocery store and corner market.

      If organic means chemical-free to you, think again. All foods are chemicals. God made your body to detect and rid itself of harmful chemicals that are part of the normal dietary process. Again, the stomach would be the first place that could detect harmful bacteria or chemicals. The stomach may throw it back up and out of the body. Most harmful bacteria would be destroyed in the very acidic (pH 1.5) stomach fluids. If harmful substances get past the stomach and into the intestines, then the body might trigger diarrhea (increased peristalsis) to rid the body of them. If they make their way through the walls of the small intestine (it is very difficult for most foreign objects or harmful substances to make it past this barrier) and then to the liver, the liver will trap them, break them apart, and render them unavailable and incapable of harming the liver.

      Ugh. Excuse my language, but fuck Kyle Smith, so hard. Having an abortion isn’t about being “expelled by the Alpha’s harem” or “50% reduction in SMV,” as if that means anything at all. 

      I admit that I have no idea at all what that rant is supposed to mean other than a big red flag to stay away from him.

      What is SMV? (I feel like I'm going to regret asking).

      I'm so sorry for all of you who suffered childhood abuse.  I wish I could hug all the little yous too.  

      Just know I think you're all amazing for surviving that, every day. 💙
