Oh, that is so funny! In all honesty, that dog would probably not come out of the encounter as the winner. And this cat is an itty bitty little thing!

I cared for a neighbors cat and the same thing happened to me … only difference was " fluffy had never exhibited this type of behavior before :face_with_raised_eyebrow:" I hope you are healing

DH photo shopped the “middle” claw into one of Mitten’s pictures because that is kind of how she feels about us


pardon the edits

My neighbor has been in touch through emails. We think the kitty is over excited combined with being annoyed that she does not have a 24/7 doorman. So she is stuck indoors for longer periods than she is used to.

Make sense for a cat that has an outdoor life, mine will start destroying the house if no access to outside.

Saving my rice like you! Still in the shape of the take out containers.


#807

it looks you vaccum packed them which is an expensive way tis tore them.
I just use Costco’s stretch tight, it is cheap, under $20.00 for 3000 square feet that last me about 2 years . I use it daily, to cover food that goes in microwave as well as those of my to poms which I package once every month or two( 24 and 28 gms,) then freeze in these films inside a reusable zip lock bag. I defrost their frozen meat the night before in fridge, ready to pop in microwave next day for barely 1 minute under the lowest control. This way, their uncooked meat is safe from freezer burn and spoilage as well as room temperature.
When rice is reheated to piping hot, usually a package takes 1.5-2 min, it taste like freshly cooked
I typically cook my rice ( kokuho red) in the rice cooker, then package it as soon as it is cool enough not to melt the stretch tite.
PLEASE READ THIS ARTICLE. WARNING ABOUT STORING RICE !! IMPORTANT


Properly stored, cooked white rice will last for 4 to 6 days in the refrigerator. How long can cooked white rice be left out at room temperature? Cooked white rice should be discarded if left out for more than 2 hours at room temperature, as bacteria grow rapidly at temperatures between 40 °F and 140 °F.
LEFT OVER RICE FROM RESTAURANT OR CARRY OUT MAY HAVE BEEN KEPT OUT FOR LONG PERIOD OT TIME, PERHAPS OVR 2. HOURS BY THE TIME THEY COOK IT, SERVE IT AND YOU BRING THEM HOME.

there was a discussion about the a few months ago I believe, within the last 6 months

Yes! I have so many rolls of vacuum sealer bags, and so many vacuum sealers. I actually have more of that, than I have Costco stretch tight. I put these in the freezer within a few days. Now I’ll review the warnings.

I’m thinking I’ll eventually make fried rice.
