Wednesday Update

I finally found the lifeless corpse of my blue crawfish. It was in one of the cats' litter boxes, of all places. It hadn't been eaten, swallowed, and pooped out, if that's what you're thinking. No. It had been carried in there, for some reason. I guess I was right in thinking that it climbed out of the tank and was then discovered by one or more of the cats. I hope there's a crawfish heaven and that he's/she's at peace. (I don't honestly know if it was male or female, but I'm leaning toward female because of descriptions I've read on the web.) Now that I know for sure it isn't hiding in the tank somewhere, I can use the tank for something else. Maybe a betta. Maybe a half-dozen tiny fish of some sort.

I don't drink a lot of alcohol, but I was curious when I saw an advertisement about whipped cream-flavored vodka. I wondered how that would taste in a white russian. I bought some of the vodka as well as some Kahlua. I didn't buy any cream, or half-and-half. I have tried the vodka straight, and I have had a black russian. Both were incredibly sweet. Tomorrow I will get some half-and-half and finally try a white russian. I hope the half-and-half tones down the sweetness a bit.

I got the cats a catnip toy. This is a larger-than-normal cat toy and holds a lot of catnip. So far only two of my cats have been interested in it. Both are my senior cats, each about 10 years old. For some reason the younger cats aren't interested. I wonder if that's common.
