That's a cat?  Wow, I don't know why I thought it was something else.  I guess I can kind of see it @mousiegirl

Re: September 2022 Bird's Nest

It's been my experience, albeit a limited experience as an involved Aunt @Leeny that yelling only feeds whatever is going on.  I remember when the unruly one (lol) was maybe two she decided to have a temper tantrum in the grass of her backyard.  I mean that kid was showing her natural a**.  My middle sister was trying to console her and that only fed the attention she was seeking with the outburst.  I on the other hand looked down on her dispassionately, scooted her away from the sidewalk and said, when you're done, let me know and I turned away from her.  

 

My sister was horrified, her paternal grandmother was horrified.  I winked at both of them and the kid stopped cutting up after about 90 seconds.

@Bird mama   "“Cat” likely came into many of the common names for ringtails in part because ringtails are about the size of a house cat and in part because, as legend has it, gold rush era miners once enticed ringtails to live in their cabins as pet mousers"

, lol.. I can't see cat in that face, but I believe you. I've watched a ton of wild life programs in my life and I've never heard of this one. As they say, we learn something new everyday.

@viva923  I read the post and sadly am not surprised about the cost.  Wood composite is like a combo of wood and some kind of plastic.  It should be treated during manufacturing to maintain the color you chose.  You'll never get a splinter and can walk on it barefooted (unless it's a hot summer day and then like everything else it will be hot).  You'll never have to paint it or stain it.  Honestly it should last the rest of your lifetime until you get hit by some kinda typhoon or something
