Pinned toot

Time for one of these again, I guess.

I'm a middle-aged (gen-x), (Aus) woman working in IT. Politically left-leaning (small L liberal), . I have opinions. I may or may not share them.

I'm interested in

And a heap of other things. Mostly I toot about my cats though.

It's 1:30am and I have decided I should log off work and go to bed. Phizzy is not impressed. She's on my side and is refusing to move.

Intersect (Amazon prime) review (no spoilers) 

I decided to give this a try because it's Sci Fi of the time travel genre, which I generally find intriguing.

If you are similarly intrigued, let me take this opportunity to dissuade you.

Terrible acting.
Plot line that barely holds together (and that's being generous).
Time travel sequences that jump all over the place.

The underlying premise is interesting. But the execution is poor.

IMDb score of 3.8 is generous.

Restocking the bird seed supplies at

28 baggies (1 cup of bird seed each) from a 5kg bag of wild birdseed mix.

Arrived in paradise.


This fella was waiting for us when we arrived.

has come for another visit. Pi is not happy.

At one point I could hear Pi howling, followed by , with Phiz chiming in, in sympathy.

Pi is inside, trying to get out a window, wants to come in, or for Pi to come out, and Phiz is sitting on a couch.

(Bengal howling audio)

seems to be lonely. I caught it at the back cat flap, starting in, wistfully. My cats are constrained now, mostly because Pi and couldn't negotiate play time successfully.


This little fella sat out on the golf course for ages, eating a little, sitting on his butt and licking his tail, having a scratch. Totally unconcerned with the world (until the world got too close).

Saddest cat, complaining about being a sad cat.

I covered an escape hole in his cat enclosure.

Pi is really enjoying the parkour climbing frame I built for him!

Went out to do some yardwork and found this blue tongue lizard hanging around in the fake grass.

A moment later it shot across the driveway to sit in the shade under real plants, and away from cat eyes.

Pi investigated. Not yet overly concerned.

Phiz is giving it another go.

Scientific method at work.

Show thread

Pi got into *another* fight last night, and is a bit worse for wear, house frame investigation not withstanding.

This was the push I needed to get the evening cat enclosure progressed. Not its final configuration, but hopefully this will deter him from being a night time free range cat until I can sort it out properly.

The extension allows access to any emergency garden.
