Thing is, it takes a couple days to sequence the virus to see if it's delta or omicron. So why not get a patient started on Regeneron on on the chance that it's actually the delta variety?

Thank you. I've not heard news in 2 days, and that worries me. "Rumor" is that he's going back to the office next week. Um ... no. I don't see how that's possible.

Baby survived, grape popped out. But it was an all-hands situation. I had the kid upside down, somebody else smacked his back, somebody was sticking his finger in the kid's mouth trying to see if he could feel the grape, someone took the kid from me, swung him by the ankles, more smacking and back pressure, more handing off of the kid, the mom still screaming ... out came the grape, kid crying and upset. It all happened within seconds, probably, but it felt like forever.

YES. Because before he knows it, the kid will have it in his mouth. Being string, it could come undone ... etc. A dad has to always think ten safety steps ahead because kids will fool you. Like crawling babies investigating light plugs on the wall because it's down at their level, and they WILL stick something it in unless you have those plastic plug covers on all unused light plugs.

True story: I was at a bowling alley once and a couple had a baby in one of those little carriers sitting on the bench, which meant the baby was mostly on his back. The young dad popped a grape into the baby's mouth, thinking it would be something for him to munch on. I kept on hawk eye on it because I was afraid ... and yeah, real quick the baby wasn't breathing, and it was an ugly situation because the baby was choking on the grape, mom was screaming, dad was pulling out his hair because he didn't know, we were upending the kid and smacking his back to dislodge the grape out of his windpipe ... man, I do not ever want to do that again.

If you've had cats before, you're not doing anything wrong. Read my comment down below. The more I think about it, the more I'd vote for taking him back. You're off to the wrong start with this cat, and I doubt you can fix it.

Did they give you any history records with the cat? Or was he a stray and they don't know anything about him?

I think a vet appointment is in order, pronto. Three weeks ago he was fine, now he's not.

If the vet finds nothing wrong, I think you should return him and warn them about what's happened. If he keeps going to the door, he's likely a formerly outdoor cat.

I spent over a year working with a feral cat outside to get her to trust me. She eventually moved in, and stayed. But she never, ever has acted like your cat. She's gentle, grateful ... and I am her world. Yeah, for the first couple weeks indoors she'd go to the door, ask to go out, and I'd remind her of her decision to live inside with me. That was in 2013, and she's been happily inside since then.

BUT if a cat is so angry that it bites you ... NO.

OR ... just take the cat back tomorrow and don't deal with seeing a vet. You don't need the danger hanging over your head from a cat who might decide to attack. I'm not kidding.

Oh man, tell him to get those beads off that pacifier cord.

He's all over the Internet. Look up Kefir cat ... you'll find tons.

I've been reading about this kitty. He's only partially grown at this point, and is very gentle. I'd love to have a Maine Coon. Extremely smart.

The site is very well done. Info from around the globe.

And when you think you can't be more pissed off than you already are, read "In Trump Time" by Peter Navarro.

Thank you. I'm getting more scared for him as the minutes pass. We'd talked in the past about the vax, and why he got it, and I know it was to protect his office employees, his wife, kids, everyone else. He's just a really decent guy.

Just a wild guess ... it has to do with your location arrow icon. Notice the other little symbol up next to the 0. It fills in solid, then is empty when you click it, which is likely turning it off. So maybe the site is asking for your location?

Swap the black/white. Tone down the blue, maybe something more navy than royal blue. Add in a couple red accents, and voila, a red white blue overall theme.
