I posted a recently about a former friend, and even though we don’t talk regularly, her complete disconnect from me still caught me by surprise.

I posed my engagement on Facebook as a Life Event. I didn’t post any pictures or anything when it happened. Understand, my engagement happened the day before we got married.

That usually meant they were trapped under a coffee cup.

I’m not so cruel that I wanted the creeps to suffocate, so I googled for ideas to repel them. Several sits mentioned cats repel the critters, so we got a kitten.
