An Ewwy-Gooey Cat-Person Moment
I love my cats and they love me, too.

Sebastian loves me so much that he brings me chewed Q-tips that he rogued straight from the box, which always turns into a game of fetch. All the while, he talks constantly about his cat-bed (that Aunt everraven gave him), his sister, how my monitor is a toasty bed alternative, and how much he loves to chase his food pellets on the kitchen floor.

Isabelle loves Krispy Kreme dough-nuts and chewy granola bars and always sneaks close to my face when I'm sleeping to check on me. She springs into spastic-cat-action and chases shadows and likes to watch the toilet flush and water run into the bathtub drain.

mood: loved loved
music: Gordon Lightfoot - assorted songs

Hehe. At least 4 people on my friends list has reposted your plea about the survey. How many have filled it out so far?

That's so awesome. You rock! I owe you.

At present, we've had 73 respondants. A few of those responses have to be taken out of the general analysis because they're international. However, I can take them and at least make use of them as an aside about comparative international safety (actually, that in and of itself would be extremely interesting, but I'd need a brand new survey and lots of data).

You can take a look at the results (at least at present) here: http://aspecialplaceinhell.com/results_table.php

However, I reordered some of the questions on the survey, so you can't go exactly the order of the survey to match question to answer. Jimmy (zordac) is building me a better results page and I plan to (if I have time) pull the database across to Excel and make some charts.

Nod. I see some good comments left by people on there too. Are all 73 just from today?

Since roughly 4 AM this morning when it went live.

Yep, the beauty of online surveys. There are some downfalls to sampling online, but the benefits far outweigh the problems.

Especially when you're just trying to aquire some quick data, right? :)

Exactly.

I.e. when my ass couldn't decide on a topic until the last minute and then had to barrel through it as quickly as possible.

God bless the internet. Especially the porn sites. :D

The kitties have gotten so big since I saw them last.

You're right, but they're even bigger than in these pictures, which are several months old. Sebastian has to be nearly 15 pounds if not more and Isabelle is only slightly more dainty.

I bet they're good at keeping you warm at night :)
