  1. Man that cat house is so cool. Those shelves would give my cats puuurrrrfect access to piss all over my library. I think I’m gonna give my incontinent cats colostomy bags.

  2. The PTSD consumerist article is interesting as well. I wonder how many preppers keep buying items in a fit of doom-therapy. I’ve pulled back from this ledge myself. Now I’m happy Knowing I have a bunch of water and some rations for a week or two. Anything past that I feel like I’m just entering the doom spiral.

    • I am happy to hear you say that! I am a ‘senior citizen’ and have lived through so many doomsday scenarios that the last one in 2000 just made me feel like a ‘chump’ who gets handed the same song and dance over and over. I have decided to just be the ‘always prepared’ Boy Scout and forget about fear. I don’t want to live in worry over the ‘what if’s’ anymore. Sure seems that the ‘what if’s’ never happen. The best way to keep people hostage is through fear, over work (so they are too tired to think anything through), and grabbing their desires so that they continue on that work treadmill.
