Thank you again, Australian government, for being useless. Can't even log into my tax account because your sign in system is so incredibly inefficient. Can't wait to get off this island and back to Texas :rolleyes:

screw it. I'm going to bed. If the Tax Office comes looking for me tell them I died 3 years ago under mysterious circumstances.

My right wrist hurts a lot and can't really bend. The weight of my own hand dangling causes pain so I'm having to prop it up. Boo. This is cutting into my Minecraft time.

Ouch! Hope it feels better soon. Those creepers miss you.

They can have my boat again while I'm away :-/
They really love your boat but they love your exploded pixels even more.

My neighbor owns 3 Porsches, one of which he uses for off roading (for some unholy reason) and a high end Mercedes. He parks them pretty much wherever, and parking is already hard enough because our complex is across the road from a bowling club, so spaces are pretty much non existent after 4:30. I don't know who told this man that he looks cool with two Porsche cayennes, a Porsche hatchback, and a Merc, but I'm only so many "single Porsche taking up two parking spots" away from accidentally spilling a carton of pins all conveniently facing point upwards around his tires.

Granted, he is trying to sell a few. He has contact details written on the Windows, but by grace he's valuing them way too high.

Porsches are the poodles of cars. Sure, they look nice, but they're absolutely useless, way too expensive, and ultimately offer nothing of value that a different, better, variation can offer.

With how you're describing this guy, he's the kind of people who just drive these for clout.
Porsches were made for car enthusiasts, they're all about the driving experience. But to stay afloat, they had to make SUVs, and now every slightly rich dumb*ss owns a Cayenne.
On a side note, a Porsche doing off-road isn't that unholy, back in the 80's they developed an whole supercar just so they could go rally with it.

If there are no cameras and its not well travelled I would suggest brake fluid on the paintwork, just a drop is enough to ruin paintwork forever, once it's soaked in the paint will bubble and you wont be able to get any fresh stuff to stick.

A friend of mine recently found a litter of five kittens in his backyard. They are the cutest little furballs ever. But his two younger sisters harassed the poor kittens non-stop, despite literally everyone involved telling them to stop. So, naturally, the mama cat moved the kittens in order to keep them safe. She left two of them behind. They were not ready to be separated from their mother. My mom took them in and we're trying to save them, but they won't eat even though they're literally shaking with hunger. And since it's the weekend, we can't take them to get help from any veterinarians, since all the ones near us aren't open. There's almost no way they're going to make it. We've gotten over the phone advice from a couple professionals, but none of their advice has worked because, again, the kittens weren't ready to be separated from their mother. Please keep these kittens in your thoughts and prayers. I honestly don't think there's anything else we can do.

Oh no 😥 Praying for the kittens! 🙏 There seem to be lots of feeding guides for newborn kittens on youtube, maybe some information there will help?

I'm hoping for the best.

If there's any way they can get formula then they need to do that ASAP. And a small syringe or bottle that the kittens cat be fed from. I don't know what the age is but they need to be fed basically round-the-clock if their eyes are still closed. If they're a little older than that, then maybe like every 3-4 hours. They also need to be patted to help expel any gasses, like you would burp a human baby.
Young kittens can't use the bathroom on their own and need to be stimulated. The mother cat does this by licking them but a warm damp cotton ball or cloth can be used as a replacement. They don't start being able to expel waste on their own til they're like ~4 weeks old I think.
They also can't regulate their own body temperature and need to be kept somewhere warm.

Community sites could also help, like Nextdoor or local facebook animal rescue groups, etc.*
Edit to clarify: Perhaps they can find someone local who has extra formula/supplies or has experience taking care of kittens, I mean.

So that's actually the exact advice we got at our local pet store/shelter; it is reassuring to hear it from more than one source, though. They've started eating; we found out by mistake that the kittens will lick the formula off our fingers. A little unconventional, but our hands have been washed very thoroughly and we are doing it because it works. We've attempted to get them to use the bathroom a few times; it hasn't worked but we're planning to try again in a bit. And keeping them somewhere warm is no issue; the house is sweltering right now so we put a couple quiet fans in a small room and it's just above room temp. Things are looking up for the kittens.

side note: watching Seinfeld is normally a great way to de-stress, unless it happens to be the episode where Elaine briefly plots murder against two cats

As the resident pet store clerk of this site, Rue pretty much summed it up... so what she said.

Basically what @Rue said. If you have to then you can pry their jaws open with the syringe/eyedropper by bodging it against their mouth (its easier to wrap their bodies in a towel/blanket so just their head is popping out). We've hand reared from 2 weeks old or so before. The one kitten we reared lived well into her 20's.
