Giving medicine to one of my cats – or any pet I’ve ever had – has always been a source of anxiety, for me as well as them. With their frantic squirming, strange cries, frightened glares, and ultimately letting the medicine fall out of their mouths, it’s never pretty.
I at first thought that maybe the cat in the top video was just an abnormally people-pleasing feline, but then I found this other video (below) with more examples of cats taking their pill as if it were a piece of candy. Apparently there’s a simple process to giving a cat a pill that I have never mastered, but I’ll make sure to watch these videos again the next time I return from the vet’s office with a sick cat.
Australian actress Rose Byrne and Irish actor Chris O’Dowd, who are both in the movie Juliet, Naked, sat down to teach each other slang terms from their home countries. I like “banjaxed” (broken) and “goon bag” (cheap boxed wine).

For years we’ve had silverfish darting around our guest bathroom floor. I bought some silverfish traps (little cardboard boxes with sticky goo to ensnare them) and they helped, but didn’t stop them. In 2017 I read that lavender oil is a good silverfish repellent. It’s only $7.99 for a small bottle on Amazon, so I decided to give it a try. I wetted the end of a Q-Tip with the oil and ran it around the perimeter of the bathroom floor, adding a little extra to a seam between the floor and the wall. It smelled nice and did not see a single silverfish for two weeks. I finally saw one, reapplied lavender oil on the perimeter of the floor, and it keep the little bastards aways for an even longer time. Now I hardly ever see them, and treat the floor every few months.
