well I caught that stray cat but he did hurt orange peel (the cat I have )my orange peel when he got to see his momma and sister after I got them fixed .The nasty guy I trapped will go to the farm .He even scares poor momma.She was keeping a close watch on me to make sure he does not hurt me

this cat was trying to play the dominate male roll and was attacking my stray cats .Not going to happen on my watch .My strays were staying on the side porch because of this cat .I called the guy at the farm and he told me just drop him off .The other one I dropped off seems to be doing his job .He has seen him in the barn catching mice .This one is just as nasty and he told me to drop him off at the other barn by the greenhouse .Cat buys the farm :D

that is Rosa my neighbors dog that they neglect and I feed her when she comes over here .They seem to not feed her .I called animal control and they did nothing .I can't catch her because she runs away when you try too .Sad ,just like the cats they neglected ,animal control did catch 3 of them and the one had kittens and now I am stuck with them .I got the females fixed from my own money

never buy from wildcats on ebay .I bought 2 belts for my mower and they onlt sent me 1 belt and then tried to say it must have been opened and stolen .But the envelope was barely big enough for 1 belt .It had to be forced out of the envelope .All they do is make excuses for their error .The weight of the package could never have been enough for 2 belts either .Come on 10 ounces for 2 cub cadet belts .I am mad as heck about this .

I am so mad because it is the deck belt and drive belt and I hired a guy to come put them on at my house tomorrow as it was the only day I could get him and I can put the deck belt on but the drive belt really needs someone who can do it right or timing on it could be off and ruin the engine .I got the deck belt and argued with them over the other belt and even called them 2 belts are not going to fit in this tiny envelope and only weigh 10 ounces .They are both 96 1/2 inch's long .I sent them pics of the belt and envelope .

Well ticked me off after putting in new kitchen faucet with these new water saving hoses and it did not leak it LEAKED .I had to take it apart and do it all over again .I have installed lots of faucets and never had any problem but these new water saving faucets are a pain in the butt .All the faucets are coming out with them so it means you need an adapter to go from half inch down to 3/8th inch .GEEZE WHAT NEXT

true and all this new water conservation is making it worse .1/2 inch hgose now has to be cut down to a 3/8th inch hose .I was told they are going to change the toilet water hoses also .I have now done it 3 times because of this hose .I was told that some of it comes from the water pressure from the well .I found out from moen also that you should change out your valve stem every 2 to 4 years so it does not get stuck in the faucet valve like mine did .This is getting to be a pain in the butt .I used pipe dope but it still has a like drip and I talked to a plumber friend and he told me to let the water of after I put it back together for a day and see what happens .Pipe tape does not work .I have changed out lots of faucets and never had this problem before .The adapter brass piece to take it from 1/.2 inch to 3/8 th inch leaks each time

Remind me never to change anything w/the plumbing after hearing this @sissy ! Just leave all the old stuff that works alone and live w/it. If something breaks, hoping to find parts for the old stuff.

I would not have changed mine but the valve stem is suck inside and I could not pull it out .I never heard that they were changing kitchen and bathroom faucets 3/8 th inch lines .It was a shock to me when i unpacked it and worse was lowes employee could have told me this info when I took the old faucet to him and showed him the valve stem is stuck inside and he could not get it out .He say the lines I had with me because i brought the half inch water lines because I wanted to get the metal braided ones so they would not burst anbd since i had it apart I figured I might as well change them then
