// So you had asked Randi Lee Harper about her setup for automagically sensing when one’s phone is being charged:

“Out of curiosity, can I ask which smart plug you use to automagically check whether your phone is charging?

“That sounds like a pretty clever setup, and I’m tempted to try something like that myself.”

(https://twitter.com/handcoding/status/1169673049068724224)

// And @randileeharper replied saying:

“Any smart plug that does power monitoring will work! You have to determine how much power your charger pulls (I use a Qi charger) when it’s idle & how much it pulls when charging (varies, so a range)

This Expert Says Some Of The Best Olive Oil Comes From Costco | HuffPost Life
“But one chef and cookbook author, Samin Nosrat, has shared great tips for finding an everyday olive oil in her new book Salt Fat Acid Heat ― and you’re going to love one of those tips, in particular.

“According to Nosrat, one of the best-tasting olive oils you can get for your money comes from Costco. It’s Kirkland Signature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and a 2-liter bottle retails for $21.49. (It’s also available on Amazon for a dollar more.)”

(And perhaps these could also be handy for having as an insulated glass that might not be as destroyable by cats? As opposed to say, glass glasses?)
Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) recommended theses tumblers, saying,

“We call it an insulated tumbler. Where you can keep your hot and cold beverages like at the temperature that you poured it into, and this one is just really beautiful. I think it’s great that more and more people bring their mugs in the mornings and I see a trend now here in New York. A lot of people don’t want to do the throw-away cups so they bring their own … I found this one and it looks a bit like a stemless wine glass just out of metal and white at the bottom, so it’s super sleek, it’s super modern. I actually found it in California while I was in a supermarket. I was like, ‘This is just so pretty that I don’t mind walking around with this on the street.’ Now I have like five of them. I’ve keep three at work and two here and it’s just a really pretty, sleek tumbler. When I sit on the stoop in the summer I drink out of it, and I have my wine it it and nobody knows I’m drinking wine on the stoop.”

(Well, this tidbit—from one of the comments—sounds rather promising.)
“I have been lactose intolerant since my mid-20’s and finally found out about Lacto-Freedom. At first I was skeptical because it seemed ‘too good to be true’ but it really works and worked for several months. After about 3+ months my bloating started to come back and although it was not too terrible I ordered another bottle and took it to prevent any issues. The second time lasted a little longer than the first time, probably because the probiotic was still in my system from the first time. If you have trouble with dairy, I would suggest you try this.”

KONG Cat ZoomGroom Multi-Use Brush - Chewy.com
(Rhiannon on cat brushes—)
“I love my ZoomGroom, but it wasn’t dense enough to untangle some mats that Diana had. (Shedding season is a beast.) So I got this brush too: https://www.chewy.com/safari-soft-slicker-brush-cats/dp/46253 (you may need two brushes!)”
(via: https://twitter.com/rhiannonroot/status/1120719407053967361)

(Aleksandra also vouched for this, saying—)
“My cat Georgie LOVES this brush and Freddie will tolerate it. Georgie came with a dandruff problem and big mats that I had to cut out with scissors, so I’m lucky she enjoys brushing…”

Laura M. Browning on Twitter: "If you get a shorthair (which I'd recommend, as a first-time owner), you really don't. They take care of everything.… https://t.co/VgORFqiZwY"
(Gwen offered this advice—)
“One thing that works good on managing fur being everywhere is a furminator comb. I have used them on dogs and guinea pigs.”

(From there, you asked—)
“If by chance you may know, how often might one need to comb a cat?”

(And Laure offered this apt advice—)
“If you get a shorthair (which I’d recommend, as a first-time owner), you really don’t. They take care of everything.”

(Just for grins, you then asked—)
“And just out of curiosity, can I ask what length types Monte and Clarabelle are?”

(And Laura chimed in with—)
“Monte’s a shorthair, and Clarabelle’s … medium, I’d say? I give her a comb every so often, since her Magnificent Ruff* can get a little tangled.

“* this is a proper noun”

“Oh, and the ‘turbo’ toys with the scratching pad in the middle and a ball in the outer track. They come with a packet of catnip to sprinkle on the scratcher. Even cats who don’t care about the nip are likely to enjoy chasing that ball.

“FOR HOURS.”

“Minerva liked hairties and strings which are both kinda dangerous? (She liked to chew and sometimes eat them.) So those were with supervision only. Also the feathers on a stick were popular. Anything with catnip was aggressively hugged by her. Not a fan of the bell-in-ball toys.”

“It was really perfect, Brows is still working through it. And I just supplement it with the things he REALLY loves, like crinkle balls and sparkle poms. And it comes with a feather wand, the feather wand is a must-have.”

“Target has really great collapsible feather wands. I have one in my sewing room and one in my bedroom. Freddie is obsessed with them. If she’s bored, she’ll try to figure out how to get it down so she can attack it. She also like the little ball that hangs from the cat tree.

“Anything that dangles, honestly. I had a wrap skirt in a laundry basket over the weekend, and I caught her trying to attack the skirt strings that were hanging out of the basket. 😂

“Also, she enjoys what I refer to as ‘the covers game.’ I’ll stick my hands under my comforter and wiggle them around. She goes bonkers for it. She’ll run all over the bed trying to pounce on them.”

(If by any chance you should need to buy wet food, perhaps Friskies Shreds may be worth a look?)
“We just leave out two bowls of kibble and refill when they’re empty. Wet food is given to the oldest cat (the half cat) every morning. He gets most of the can and the other four get a spoonful to keep them away from his.

“He also gets more throughout the day as he requests it. The others may or may not get some then, too.

Trixie Activity Strategy Game Tunnel Feeder Cat Toy, Blue/White - Chewy.com
This looks to be the activity feeder that Rhiannon uses to slow down her cat’s eating?

“I use this feeder for Diana. She has the tendency to inhale her food, so this slows her down and makes her use her brain. Also she’s a messy eater. I need to vacuum.”
