Oh, I also see that the new Photos app on my iPhone IDs animals! I have the "magic info" icon, and a little paw icon on the image, and when I tap that, I get info about Oriental shorthairs.

Earlier version of that app once identified part of a crazy-quilt block on my design wall as a person I should tag. Only Picasso could have thought that thing was a person. App has come a long way!

@lizkat FWIW, this is the "stock" iOS photos app, it's pretty slick (this is iOS15 on a 13 Pro Max):

Is anyone having trouble getting cat food? I mean more than usual. Had to make 3 stops today while out looking for the only food my daughter's picky cat will eat. No one had it and neither did Chewy. Finally found it at PetCo.

yeah there's probably a million long tons of the stuff in containerships circling offshore the port of Los Angeles or else waiting for rail or truck transport east... along with a lot of what people think they're going to gift-wrap for Christmas.

This picture just popped up in my memories. The look on his face 😐

Ok you guys are reminding me now of a little black manx kitty, of the "stumpy tail" variety, named Tuxedo for his white accents. He was so cute as a kitten, fearlessly walking atop the curved backs of chairs in the sunroom to get a view of the world outside my bro's home.

Buy your cats an iPad mini and let them download the app store's Game of the Day for today: it's a cargo transport strategy sim called Port City: Ship Tycoon.

They'll have to mow the yard a few times before I'll consider doing that

For that you need a goat, since it will mow the lawn for free. Downside: will also eat things should leave alone.

But cats might enjoy that cargo transport simulator app, just explain there's a ton of catfood out there on containerships and all they have to do to nail some of it is find a way to dock a couple of those watercraft at a port and get it on a train or a truck to your neighborhood.

If my cats want an iPad, they'll have to earn it, by god! Ain't no freebies in this household!

Do you remember when your backyard was full of moles and chipmunks? Pepperidge Farm remembers. Maybe you buy the iPad and every now and then leave the television set to an ornithological nature show. Maybe this whole thing goes away.

edit: why did I type backyard as two words....?

I guess they do deserve a treat. I'll buy them an Android tablet.

Well at least they will be able to close all open Apps with 2 button presses. :ROFLMAO:

Heh. I have a very old iPad mini that occasionally manages that without any button presses at all. I only keep it because it has an old version of Plants v Zombies that I liked but that didn't stay in the devs' upgrade lane. Time to give it up and get a mini that was built in this decade.
