    You clearly carefully read and followed all instructions before beginning assembly. :D

    EDIT: Upon closer inspection - is he polydactylous, or is is just an optical illusion due to the way his little toesies are wrapped around the tops of the tree branches?

    Guys you made me laugh!
    New picture for mhardy6647 of Kit Carson's front paw for toe counting (normal number). The mudroom has a barn type door and the paw picture shows him reaching around through narrow crack and lifting the locking hook (it failed). I planned to put him in the mudroom when a timeout is needed. He cannot see the hook from within the mudroom.

    Later, I put a calming pheromone collar to slow him down, and he thought it was a game. No matter how secure I put the collar around his neck, he would remove it and bring it back to me. He is an escape artist.

    New picture for txcoastal1 presenting a different pose showing he is not stuffed. Sometimes I wish LOL. :D

    Mine is Houdini. No collar can hold him.
    No non-lick cone stays in place. He understands
    door knobs. He simply can't get enough grip to
    turn them. A lot of cats are far smarter than dogs.
    It's not that they can't be trained, but they always
    always are thinking "what's in it for me?"
    He does swallow his pills. He knows kitty treats
    are in order afterwards.

    In the past 5 months or so, I've trained our cat 4 tricks to do to get his treats.

    "Give me your paw"...He will sit and raise one paw. His left one.

    "Sit up"...He will sit on his hind legs and raise both paws to his chest.

    "Give me five"...I let my arm hang down and my hand hangs flat...He will sit up and then stretch to reach higher and hit my hand with his left paw. He must be a lefty.

    "Lay down"... he now lays all the way down like a sphinx and looks forward for a few seconds waiting for my approval "good boy". Some times he will lay down and flop to his side and look up at us. :D

    I'll soon get some pictures of him doing his tricks.



    I told my wife we need to start training him to do a 5th trick of some sort. She laughed but she knows I'm kind-of serious too. :D

    Where da' turntable be at? Sucka Foo don't even know good sound.....shoo. I like those acoustic panels behind the system. Those are cool looking. Also, if you are gonna have a rack inbetween the speakers? That's the way to do it.

    Not too far off the mark, I took an audiophile friend to a live classical concert. An 80 piece orchestra playing Beethoven's 6th symphony and we had good seats, 10th row center. He didn't enjoy it at all. He felt the bass response was not very good and he couldn't locate individual instruments very easily.

    Actually, that's Elon Musk's new, green solution for low-earth orbital satellite launches.

    EDIT: I do want to note that the Nostradamus of my era, Gary Larson, predicted this... well... sorta.
