This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Aloe Cadabra. All opinions are 100% mine. I recently discussed my problem with my current hand lotion– it’s “ok” stuff, not the greatest, and my cat likes to eat it, which is not healthy for her. I tried some store-brand aloe vera gel, which […]

At the risk of giving my precocious children MORE ideas (they create sounds on my wine glasses when it’s their turn to wash the dishes), I am posting this amazing video of a guy playing Ode to Joy with wine glasses full of water! He is super good! It’s a shame the video was cut […]

This is just weird. Is my cat really weird? She licks the hand lotion off my hands. Is this harmful? She acts like she’s in nirvana. Livvy’s lotion of choice. I don’t know what they put that stuff– is it toxic to cats? If I put the lotion on my hands, even when she’s in […]
