Cat/Dog Lady Fashion For Charity: Vans Sneakers For The ASPCA

If you are working on your transformation into full-blown crazy cat lady, simply having a dozen or two felines just isn't good enough.

Relationships are hard work, whether you have been part of a couple for a couple of months, or a couple of decades. Keeping the spark alive is easier said than done, and as two people get to know each other completely, managing to surprise each other is tough. Of course, with effort, a relationship does not need to fizzle and lose what it had during its early days.

Don't Let The Cat Out Of THIS Bag Until You've Finished Grooming Your Cat

Even cats that groom themselves can only do it to a point. They can't clean their ears, for example, or remove their shedding fur very easily. They can't give themselves medications or put bandages around their scrapes and, funny, for some reason, they don't like it very much when we try to administer to them. So, lucky for us, the folks at Downtown Pet Supply came up with this Cat Grooming Bag aka Cat Restraint Bag.

50 Shades Of Fictional Fashion: Christian Grey Inspired Menswear By Norton & Townsend

Fashion inspired by literature is not a new concept. Some designers have selected literal interpretations - incorporating the image of a book or its pages into a whimsical garment. Others are more focused on fictional fashion, taking a note from the heroes or heroines and bringing their wardrobes to life. The most recent designer to tackle this trend has decided to focus on menswear inspired by a character well lusted after and envied.

One thing boomers learn fast: Medicare and other insurance plans don't pay for hearing aids.  And those buggers can cost up to $4,000 - $5,000 a pair.  There's perhaps no one who knows these facts better than the man who invented the Lyric hearing aid, which, on a subscription basis, cost that much per pair per year!  Now, that man, Adnan Shannib, has invented iHear, the hearing aid for the 99 percent of us who would love to hear, but can't afford those Lyric prices.  It's the iHear, and wait 'til you see what's different about these hearing aids!
