Hi Frugal Al, Thank you for your kind words. If going to Africa is on your bucket list, don't wait too long. You want to have good eyesight, good hearing-especially for the night sounds, and be somewhat ambulatory, as you can't depend on a cane to tame those lions. ;^) Hi Chaz, Thank you for writin...

Re: Cat resistant funiture

"Aversion Therapy"

Every time you see the cat start to claw, or come upon it actively clawing furniture, have your squirt gun at the ready. Most of them hate water and this will shock them into not doing that again, lest they be squirted until they learn their lesson. 8-)

Good luck.
