  1. It might take a few weeks. When we got Widget she had recently been spayed and her tummy was almost completely bald. She's been with us for about two weeks now and she's got black belly fur now, but you can clearly see the white if she flips over. Unfortunately she's still got that bump on the belly from spaying, and I hate it because I don't want to touch it while I'm rubbing her stomach. And I devised a way of knowing if your cat will pounce. 1. KNOW THE SIGNS. Widget tends to flip her right paw under herself while she's crouching. Your cat might not do this, though, so check his/her rump, Widget usually raises hers before she springs. 2. IS YOUR CAT DECLAWED? If you have a declawed cat, it might be a bit harder to tell if he/she will pounce. If you haven't declawed your cat (I will not like you if you declaw because that's like removing ten bones) then check if the claws are unsheathed. If so, the cat is probably posed to leap. 3. LOOK FOR WIDE EYES. Widget has never closed her eyes when she has pounced so far because she is concentrating. And another note-since our kitten is napping I looked in her ear and there appears to be something like a small tuft of fur in there. How do we get it out? If I had to be a pet, I would be a house cat. You can just laze around all day and when you meow people run over to see what you need. ~Cavey
  2. People who spell everything wrong like this. hai wut r u doin 2day u no wut u wunt 2 do? Seriously, if you're on the internet where sarcasm can't go across right, can you at least have someone understand your post? I mean, I'll do it if I'm in a rush or something, but I go back and edit it. And if it's TJ doing it I don't mind as it's usually only two words, but it bugs me. ~Cavey
  3. @Shiney-for the regular Sims game, I've looked on a site called GameFAQs about the game, and it says you have to have a game called Livin' Large in order for the sim to get pregnant as it contains something called the Love Bed. You're lucky your S2 game is still functioning. What expansion packs do people have? I've been pestering my mom to get me the S3, but she won't yet. It's really annoying, seeing as the only other Sims game I have is the Castaway one. MySims isn't much of a Sim game, everything is just a bunch of blocks ~Cavey
  4. I'm on a Mac with a decent graphics card...I think I'll call my father later and ask for some help. And when I can go back on the game, I'll just move them out, delete the lot, and put them in a smaller one. I'm thinking about temporarily removing the custom clothes from my game, but the only problem is that Sims are wearing them, and if it corrupts and crashes the game files...I don't want to think about it. *shudder* I've already had an incredibly bad game crash where my sister had to take the entire game and delete what was there. I had an airplane, and the shell of it was too much. Teenagers, adults, and elders couldn't move, the children and toddlers were the only ones able to move, my sister even tried turning on the boolprop testingcheats cheat and forced errors, causing them to get deleted temporarily, and breaking my game data into utterly useless pieces. I was devastated at losing everything, cried for a while...and if I lose it all again, I can't face it. And even worse, I don't know how to back up my files...luckily I couldn't save the game as it was getting buggy. I'll ask my sister if she can find a way to get into the Sims without busting the game, taking off custom clothes, and then taking them out. She's got a Sims 2 game as well, and she's a lot more skilled with it-she told me "never use the boolprop testingcheats cheat because you might seriously damage the game, let me do it only when I have to." I trust her on that, because once she went into it and forced an error because she didn't know what she was doing, and it deleted the Sim. ~Cavey
  5. Oh SHOOT. My S2 game just crashed. Basically I was on a large lot. (I will refer to the sims as J, Z, H, and P.) So J is at work while H, Z, and P are eating, playing on the Execuputter, barfing of morning sickness...I go to get back to the Neighborhood (Pleasantview) and "Neighborhood" "Save" and "Quit" are all grayed out. I think that it's just because J's not home, she's at work, and don't think twice about it. (There was no burglar or fire on the lot, just to let you know; since I have Uni, I have the fire sprinkler, and a burglar alarm.) So J gets home. I go to get to the Neighborhood. Still grayed out. I get my sister involved. She looks at the lot, then looks up, and I see it. The wall paint in some areas went BLACK. It wasn't custom-the only custom things I have are hacks to keep the game smooth, boy and girl Hogwarts PJs, some girl PJs and some dresses with tights, and some hoodie zipups for the boys. (I think somewhere around twelve, six or seven originals and then all recolors of the mesh.) My sister sees it, shakes her head, and says dreaded words. "This house is way too big. You shouldn't play The Sims 2 for a day, maybe even a few, and when you get back to this lot, make it smaller!" Oh crap...TS2 us my major form of entertainment, and not playing it when I wanna is TORTURE. ~Cavey
  6. I currently have: MySims (Wii) The Sims 2 (Pets, University, Nightlife, and Base [Macintosh]) The Sims 2 Castaway (Nintendo DS LITE) I'm considering getting The Sims 3, but I looked on Mod The Sims...it seems there are sooooooooooo many glitches. (Ex. If you install Fast Lane Stuff, there's some glitch where cars crunnnnnnnnch right into each other...weird...and another where you can end up with autumn salad stuck in the sim's hand...if they shower they mash it in their face.) ~Cavey
  7. PORTAL 2. Do want. But my computer can't even play the first version(stupid, stupid, stupid graphics card! need new one) so my sister will probably be the one to get it. But we're on Macs, so we might have to wait a while until the Mac version comes...*sigh* ~Cavey
  8. I noticed it was down a few minutes ago! I checked Down For Everyone or Just Me to be sure, and it's down. Hope this comes up soon, got a Magma egg that I need to check...will time be added for eggs that died or lost time? ~Cavey
  9. I've only seen the first, second and third movies because those are the only ones we own, but we're probably gonna purchase the rest soon. Thoughts- Sorcerer's Stone-You really can't cut a thing out of there, so it was kinda like a rerun of the entire book. And also, according to the wiki on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, they filmed the departure of Harry leaving Hogwarts first. What. The. Heck. Chamber of Secrets-I'ma smash Lockhart's nose. Oh, and Ron's a real wimp, too. Nice, Grint. Prisoner of Azkaban-There's only one mess-up scene that I noticed. In the last bit of the movie, they put the Firebolt in there. The Firebolt came waaaaaaaaaaay earlier in the book. But in my opinion it's the greatest movie I've seen. ~Cavey
  10. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows where Harry is hit with the Avada Kedavra curse and just barely survives. It's not every day you hit someone with a gun or something and they fall, and then a few moments later they're like boiiiiing. ~Cavey
  11. How do you tell the difference between purring and growling? Our kitten Widget is always making a sound that I can't make out... ~Cavey
  12. First, when I was a newbie, I used red. Then I switched to blue at Level Three or somewhere around that point. I remember looking at all the symbols and thinking, "It's so 3-D..." Lol. Now I use Spring. ~Cavey
  13. @Zovesta-No, I don't think that's it. I can sense anything in the hallway to my room...I'll vision it and turn around and see if Widget has come in. And we were playing Capture The Object in P.E. today, and walked past a kid, and I just visioned him whipping around. He did, actually, and that's a pretty good weapon-I managed to dart away in time. On topic-I just remembered! I've got an extreme sense of hearing-it's like I'll hear a thump and run to see what's happened, going into the correct room. I can hear my computer whirring right now, and if you turn on a light, I'll hear the light. ~Cavey
  14. I've got this thing...if someone walks up behind me, and gives me like 5 seconds, I'll sense them-where they are, to the left, right, exactly in the middle, whatever. So don't wait five seconds if you want to scare me. And another thing-I can hear exactly where a sound is coming from. Like a few minutes ago Widget leaped on my bed and meowed, and I could tell which side of the bed she was on without looking around. ~Cavey
  15. Love Story-Taylor Swift We were both young when I first saw you I close my eyes and the flashback starts I'm standing there on a balcony in summer air See the lights See the party, the ball gowns I see you make your way through the crowd And say hello, little did I know That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles And my daddy said stay away from Juliette And I was crying on the staircase Begging you please don't go, and I said Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone I'll be waiting, all you have to do is run You be the prince and I'll be the princess It's a love story baby just say yes So I sneak out in the garden to see you We keep quiet 'cause we're dead if they knew So close your eyes, Escape this town for a little while. 'Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter, And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet." But you were everything to me, Begging you, "Please don't go". And I said, "Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone. I'll be waiting, all that's left to do is run. You be the prince, and I'll be the princess, It's a love story, baby, just say, 'yes'." "Romeo, save me, they're trying to tell me how to feel. This love is difficult, but it's real. Don't be afraid, we'll make it of this mess, It's a love story, baby, just say, 'yes'." Well, I got tired of waiting, Wondering if you were ever coming around. My faith in you was fading, When I met you on the outskirts of town. And I said, "Romeo, save me, I've been feeling so alone. I keep waiting for you, but you never come. Is this in my head, I don't know what to think," You knelt to the ground, And pulled out a ring and said, "Marry me, Juliet, you'll never have to be alone. I love you, and that's all I really know. I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress, It's a love story, baby just say yes." We were both young when I first saw you... ~Cavey
  16. "Strawberry Avalanche" by Owl City. I love the song so much...Wanna hear it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0J7UPSh2Xxw ~Cavey
  17. No, apparently not. (they're called calicoes too) Someone said earlier in the thread that they are mostly female, but they CAN be male. (Used to believe they HAD to be female-blame the book I read, not me.) Tortoiseshells/calicoes tend to be female, so if you want a female cat, look for calicoes. But check just in case! ~Cavey
  18. N: 5/10 What the heck is a Mitesla? A: 8/10 Looks like a tribal creature in SPORE. Love the game. S: 4/10 Um, a bit of the 'all over the place' feeling. ~Cavey
  19. On New Years, I walked onto the porch. A fat cat walks by. Think it was expectant. On a rainy day, my mom opens the door to do something. Guess what's sitting on the porch and could've come in? A kitty I've actually seen a few cats roaming the neighborhood. I did get to pet my neighbor's cat once. And then there was this one cat who jumped onto our fence. Gah. Cats are so cute. I'm going to go to a pound for one soon with my family. I think that if I see twenty more cats I'll explode from the cuteness overload. /sarcasm But our kitty will definitely be female. Males are just kind of...yuck, 'cause they spray. ~Cavey
  20. I thought there was a glitch when I noticed that Sockie was a Global Mod! If I was more surprised, I think I would've conked off my chair. When are all the mods going to be announced? Congrats to all the new Global Mods! ~Cavey
  21. Someone in my family poured water over bread* and threw it into the microwave for a minute. She takes it out, and what do we find? The bread had burned. Not on the outside, but the inside. The smell...oh god...yuck. *I'm thinking the bread didn't burn on the outside because of this. ~Cavey
  22. That second one... I think it's a gray stripe... Am I wrong? Yeah, I think I am. ~Cavey
  23. That's because male calicoes hardly exist. In fact, I don't even think there is a male calico in the world. Calicoes are domestic shorthairs. If I could get one, I wouldn't turn down the offer. They are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo adorable. Reading the book "Callie" totally turned me onto calico. ~Cavey (btw. Callie is a book from The Kitty Corner, by the author of The Puppy Place.)
  24. A horse. I SO want one. My parents keep saying we can't afford it. And I want Valentines to get into the cave. ~Cavey
  25. So, do you have a phobia or paranioa? I'm paranoid of using a phone to call someone unless they are on speed dial. Not to mention falling off monkey bars at school. Yeah, I'm paranoid of weird things. But I'm weird. That's my excuse. Back On Topic: List any phobias or paranoias in this thread. RULES-Yes, please, just keep the topic swear free, unless you do this to it: And if you see a board like this, please PM me. I may not have noticed it before. ~Cavey
