Wise words are always welcome:
@janellecshane Typical cat mind: "My surroundings have changed. This imperils me. I must investigate everything lest I be ambushed."

@janellecshane Brush with buttercream! If you don't know what to do, just brush with buttercream! It's always the answer!
Maybe not the right answer, though.
Save up your pennies, kids, they'll be valuable some day!:
assassination, particularly nasty politics
SC Aer, voracious reader, herald, thinker, 65 years young, etc.
