    It is for me. That is why my past four cats have been bengals and savannahs. They have very short fur, so the protein is kept to a minimum. Bengals are also mucky little sods (being part wild) so I used to give my boy a good bath every few weeks. He used to love it. He loved it so much that my ex wife would open the bathroom door when I was in the bath and the little sod would come flying in and jump in with me lol.

    Our cats have had alot to get used to over the years. They were used to our old Dog Bert because he was old and slow and he never really bothered with them too much. Our new dog, Marley 2 years old and Jack Russell loves to play with them. Two of them run away scared, the other cat plays back and gives as much back as little Marley can give dish out.

    I miss my Siamese though it was only 7 years ago my father made the right choice to have her put to sleep but when he did I cried like a baby for months afterwards, and so did he.

    heh, that reminds me of the time I took Jasmine to her new home. Whilst in the process of closing her business my ex accidentally left the savannah stud cat in with one of the bengal queens. Oops.

    The result was two bengal cross kittens. One was called Earl Grey, the other Jasmine. Jasmine was absolutely tiny when I took her to my mum's friend (who took her). Mum's friend at the time had two enormous English blues, a tabby, a ginger and a long hair chinchilla cross. Jasmine could fit in the palm of your hand she was so tiny.

    Any way, she put her on the kitchen floor and all of the other cats sat around in a circle. She walked up to each one and twatted them in the face LOL. She has ruled the roost ever since.

    Got some pics from when she was 3 months old.

    Just had a meeting with a university professor (and former politician) and pitched a project I've been quietly beavering away on. He loved the idea, and wants to work with me to help realise it.

    Tre in a tree.

    A big metal tree. Oh how we did laugh. He landed there from a para jump. Walking off meant certain death, so he sat up there for ages grassing every one up so we knew where they were :D

    Funny because I was a hater of this game, and now I can't stop playing it. Nearly 40 hours in three weeks !

    PUBG. I slated it so hard for years. Now I look a fool. It's easily the most fun I have had in years. It can be absolutely bloody brutal (some matches last less than 30 seconds) but so utterly rewarding. And such a bloody laugh. Especially when I follow Tre out of the plane and end up stuck in a tree LOL.

    It's the first competitive MP game I have ever played online. Ever. I played tons of co op games with friends, but never anything like this. I'm not competitive *at all* because I hate the reaction it can bring out of people. However, I seem to have found the perfect balance because Tre is the same, yet the other two players we game with are extremely competitive so we get to sit back and listen to them argue. Which is even more fun.

    Yeah. It has many maps. Some look like Nam, others Russia. That one is the one I call "Fallout New Vegas" because half of it seems to have been pinched from FONV. I like that one though. It's very big, so you last longer.

    I used to have a blast on BF3, part of me wants to find something again but part of me doesn't because it can get very addictive :happy:

    No way!? This made me check my account and I won £3.60 too! Less the £2.50 ticket price I'm not sure what to spend the £1.10 profit on first.

    Ditched quickbooks in favour of the old fashioned excel spreadsheet to calculate my taxes, because I use my PayPal for more than just business it made sense (at the time) to just make a note of my business related income and expenses manually and create a sheet specifically for eBay.

    Totally dumb idea... I hadn't looked at the spreadsheet in months and I've had this niggling feeling in the back of my head for weeks saying "You know you really should do that and keep on top of it"

    Anywho... I reverted back to quickbooks, its taken me a few days of plodding to get my books up to speed but I'm back on top of it now and with the handy dandy phone app It should be much easier to keep on top of things!

    Niggling feeling gone.

    We're moving house (well... are planning to move house) and we've been viewing property in the wild outdoors. The prospect is just awesome, despite the almost-certainty of the whole thing bankrupting us. Fun times. :rock:

    Fantastic screen grab of my unfortunate landing in Los Leones! I didn't even know you could land on the crane jib if you were stupid enough...

    Aye but when you get off you knock yourself and have to be revived LOL. You also don't get any weapons, armor, stims or ammo. I rescued him after the other two had died, and we lasted about 5 minutes LOL.

    You start the game with nothing. Every time. So you need to run about and shop for about 5 mins or so before you can even think about starting. That's why some games end so quick, because people landed faster than you and got a gun lol. Mind you we've caught a few unawares too.
