I've not had good luck with Nature's Miracle for my cat's pee spots. Even dousing the area, the odor would linger and he would return, smelling, scratching, and peeing again. I have had good luck with Woolite for Pet Odor + Oxy, in a spray bottle. It has a strong fragrance so I have to open windows to air out the room after using it, but it has worked like a charm for me.

I hate to be "that" person but seriously... why are posts like these on AT? I typically just scroll right past, but it seems they've been increasing in frequency lately. I'd much rather have design-related posts, and let people looking for posts like this, look at a parenting blog instead!

I'm quite the opposite re temperature: I can't sleep if I'm cold! I have the heat at 74 and use an electric blanket. But, I'm always cold and am happiest at about 80 degrees, so who knows.

I also find it easiest to fall asleep watching tv, browsing the internets, etc. If I just lay there and TRY to sleep, that's when I find I can't.

Why is "gentrification" a dirty word? It really is progress. Empty lots, run down houses, and abandoned buildings are being replaced with prospering businesses and opportunity. Money is being fed into these communities, _increasing_ the property values of the long time residents and bringing better educational opportunities, new job opportunities, etc.

Shamrocks are very hard to kill. My thumbs are black, but my shamrocks have survived moving across town, living in a very shady living room (on the TV stand, not even in the window), and only sporadically watered. They get a little droopy looking after a week or two with no water, but they always bounce back and grow back.

Plus my cat eats them and is still alive, so there's that, too.
