...the frigid cold has taken its toll...
Hibernation is looking good...
Late night yowls, most favored Big Cat Beauties... thankfully, the temps were milder on the tame prairie today... the frigid cold has taken its toll on this Big Cat... between dealing with the bitter cold and dealing with all the stuff that has to get done like grocery shopping, the Kougaress wore herself out to the point she simply collapsed and tried to catch up on her sleep... thus, the sparse postings... some strange sky sounds recently that this Big Cat can't identify... but that happens off and on, along with weird aircraft... anyhoo, the Kougaress has seen some lovely adorable cardinals the past few days... there's been some better internet connections, but still some spotty problems... so she's always racing to get things done online... ~huge long sighs~
Stay safe and warm, darling kittens, and be good company for each other. Heart-to-heart relationships are the key to the Aquarian Age. And remember, this Big Cat loves ya!

The Bondage Diet
by Pat Cunningham
The naked man chained to the wall strained against his bonds. On the table before him sat two plates. One held juicy apple slices. The other held donuts. The man leaned longingly toward the donuts.
“No.” The woman dressed in leather straps and thigh-high boots slapped his thigh with a riding crop. “Bad boy. We don’t want those awful donuts, do we?”
“Yes we do,” the chained man whined. “They’re jelly.”

Media parades dead children as victims of anti-vaxxers despite medical facts contradicting the narrative

They then decide no more for that child and no more for their next children. And they are correct in making that decision.
