so my neice is entering kindergarten. In order to "get in" they had to pass a series of little tests. including "skipping", writing name, writing alphabet, etc... their ability to do it or not determind which "group/class" they would be in. I had such an issue w/ this. I mean, what if my child simply didn't want to skip that day.. .then he'd have to go to the non-skippers group that "needs more help w/ motor skills"? My MIL and SIL thought me nuts to get so bent out...
well, i'm sorry. I don't have a ferret. or a cat. but i love both. and I WILL add that declawing is cruel and awful. Aside from cruelty issues... getting the cat as a kitten would allow the cat to grow w/ the ferrets and declawing would be silly... as the ferretts will have the upperhand while the cat is a kitten anyway... and the kitten will learn to be nice w/ the ferrets.

I'm a receptionist. sure, we judge people off and on throughout any given day. We answer the freaking telephone like two times a minute for 10 hour days. We answer the worlds MOST STUPID questions with every phone call (ie: "it's urgent I speak w. Dr. D******, " okay, sounds like life or death so I go on and ask for a direct WHAT IS YOUR QUESTION OR SITUATION and the patient may (has) say " My three year old was bit by a black fly, should we go to the er or make an...
