WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
We’ve been pestered by the neighbor cat Amadeus a lot lately! That’s what we’ve been up to! 😦
You may remember that our neighbor got a kitten after his cat Mons went missing. Mons used to chase us and scare us and sometimes injure us. To make sure that little Amadeus knew who was boss, his owner brought him to visit us so we would get to know eachother. We weren’t exactly thrilled to have him here, but we tolerated him (just barely). We gave him the cold shoulder, but he took that as a friendship hug, and kept following us around.
Lately it’s gotten all out of hand! Amadeus is constantly trying to get in our house. He tries to get in all the windows, doors and even our catflap – what nerve! And on top of that he miaows nonstop as loud as he can in his little annoying Amadeus voice!
Occasionally we take pity on him and let him in for VERY SHORT periods at a time. When he starts to get cheeky and does things like go on the sofa, we give him the heave-ho and send him home.
Amadeus is a pain in the neck, but he is a little bit cute too – but only a little! 😉
The temperature of an alligator’s nest determines what sex the offspring will be. Females are produced when the temperatures are below 82.4 degrees Fahrenheit (28 degrees Celsius), and males are produced at temperatures above 91.4 F (33 C). A temperature of 87.8 F (31 C) will produce an even number of males and females.
