Last week we bought five new animals for our household; two Japanese fighting fish, a gecko, and two finches.

I like the birds the best, because they actually do things, like yell at us, sing, and sometimes they stare at you, like they are trying the best way to overthrow the humans.

The fish don’t really move a lot, just float around a bit, I was hoping they’d jump out at people, but they haven’t done anything like that, and the lizard just hides all day, that’s kind of boring.
These animals are in addition to several rabbits, a dozen chickens, and a cat, and dog. For our next animal, I want something like an ostrich, or a bison, but we probably don’t have tall enough fences for either. So I guess we’ll do something boring like a cow.

Then again, we might get lucky and find a camel on craigslist.

Farm Cats

When the cats away the mice will play.

Barn cats (type not breed)
Other names-feral, mix, stray, working cat.
Use- mouse control.
Best known for- mouse control, reproducing quickly.
Physical description-almost any cat will hunt, but try to pick ones with large ears and long tails; for good hearing and balance.
Color-any cat color.
Weight-most cats are around 7-12 pounds.
Temperament-mostly depends on how much they where handled as kittens; ranges from very sweet and clingy to wild and flighty.
History-there is no record of when domestic cats where first brought to the Americas. Sailors and settlers used cats to keep mice and rats from eating the ships supplies; so they where probably here very early.
Climate- different cats are suited to different climates. 
Health/care- check with locals to see what diseases are common in your area. In the past at least it was considered a good idea not to feed the cats to keep them hunting. There are very few cats who will not hunt no matter how well fed they are. Feeding your cats will not only keep them around but give enough substance for them to fight of disease.
Reproduction- one queen can have 12-18 kittens a year, the kittens may be able to reproduce as early as 4-5 months. Neutered and spayed animals will cause less problems.

Availability-extremely common and easy to find.


We went to the book store. -Jane

Message to all our writers:

You all are doing good:-)

Haven't read everything yet. Fred, especially, I still need to catch up. You can beat me to the punch, all of you, by going back in and capitalizing the first letter of each sentence, each name, and the word I.

Loved shooting the other day. It was fun:-)

Really enjoyed our drive Saturday, too.

Looking forward to more writing.

Love you all - Mom

PS Dad, why not comment or even write your own post?
Top 10 PC Games:

         I'm only making this because I don't have anything else to do (besides maybe math) so here I go. Enjoy!

10: Plants vs Zombies

 a tower defence game, where in the middle of the zombie apocalypse, Boom Seed Co. makes a wide variety of plants to fight the horrid beasts. Definitely deserves 10th place.

9: Civ5

Take charge of a nation and play through time! A great game for strategy and some history! It is a great game! But last i checked it cost $50.

8: Clone Wars Adventures

It's surprisingly hard to find a good picture for this. but here's an adequate one. Its a great game great for meeting people and fighting rancores! If you want to play, act quickly, it is ending and everyone has a free Jedi account!

7: Civ4

Think civ5 only better!!! Not as realistic with its walking stacks of doom. But i find it much more fun. Start with clubs, end with mecs!! It is far superior then Civ5! But not as good of  graphics. But thats not very important in this game.

6: Star Wars: Battlefront II

Play as Squad 501st in this epic 1st person shooter! Whether its campaign or instant action or multiplayer, its fun and awesome! (Why cant star trek have any games this good?)

5: Zoo Tycoon 1+2

So maybe you don't want to destroy stuff all the time. So play one of these! you're in charge of a zoo! Whether its in the city or desert or even Mars! Challenge to get the best zoo of all time! Or just go looking for fossils (only in 2). 1s guests are less whiney but in 2 you can go down a take care of the animals your self! And both are awesome!

4: Combat Arms

Yet another 1st person shooter that is awesome! (Which ones aren't?) Fight as a mercenary against fellow players or zombies!! A wide selection of guns, great maps! and more!!!!

3: Wolfenstein 2009

Yes i like 1st person shooters. Could you tell? In this one, fight against German SS in WW2 stop more of their experiments and save all of mankind!!! (Again) awesome guns. Really cool boss fights and super weapons! This game is awesome!

2: Return To Castle Wolfenstein

Yes another wolfenstein, and yes this one is older, and better (in my opinion)! With the Venom (a big gun), and of course the best gun  in the game.... the FG42 (paratrooper rifle!) not to mention the flame thrower! Fight Germans, mutants and zombies! This game is just pure AWESOME SAUCE!!!!!!!!!!

1: Minecraft

It is, without a doubt, that it is impossible, to get a picture that shows everything to do with this great game!! Sandbox doesn't begin to cover the possibilities! Espeastly with mods! adding everything from more dogs to weapons to looks to generated structures to just about anything you can imagine!! All the games above can, or have been made in this game! That pic up there is completely "Vanila"(non modded)!! Just amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (The Wither is harder then the Dragon) Easter eggs, the poor graphics, just about everything in this is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for reading this!
