Oscar (Domestic Shorthair Cat)
I got him from the RSPCA when he was about 18 months old. I brought home some fruit from the market in this cardboard box a week ago and it's been cluttering up the floor of my kitchen since, because it's become Oscar's favourite day (and night) bed since it arrived. I just have to wait for him to get sick of it.
Opera House in the Afternoon (Sydney,...
We came out from afternoon tea at one of the big hotels on the harbour. The setting sun on a winter afternoon made the sky look so lovely behind the Opera House.
Oscar likes to eat and cuddle and eat and that's about it. He's the most laid-back cat I've ever known, but having been on the street a while before I got him, he's never sure where his next meal is coming from.
Use Left-over Hair Conditioner as Bath 'Oil'
If, like me, you somehow accumulate more hair conditioner than you can possibly use for your hair, don't throw it away. It makes a great bath 'oil'. Just rub a dollop between your hands then rub your hands together in the bathwater.
Removing Sunscreen Stain from Clothes
Having freckly/fair skin I need to wear sunscreen every day. Some brands can leave a yellow/brown stain on light clothes. To remove this stain: moisten the area, rub with plenty of dishwashing liquid (I use a popular clear green type), and scrub with a nail brush if the fabric can take it.
Easy Way to Give Tablets to Cats
Store the tablet for as long as you can with the cat's kibble or treats -- long enough for it to take on the smell of the food. Serve the tablet along with the kibble/treats.
Use Envelope Labels As Return Labels
You don't have to get return address labels specially printed. Cut out the typed address block from business envelopes/letters sent to you. Stick them on your out mail with glue or tape where you usually put your return address.
Roach Control Ideas
No need for expensive, smelly, and toxic cockroach killers that leave a residue. Spray cockroaches with any ammonia-based cleaner (e.g. Spray 'n Wipe). Ammonia is deadly to living things. And you clean your bench/floor at the same time! The ammonia smell dissipates quickly.
