Tough Economy Forces Kitten to Downsize to Smaller Box
Spark, a kitty from Creston, IA, recently fell behind on his mortgage and was forced to downsize to a smaller box.
“He used to be in a spacious Sony television box,” said real estate agent Sonia Dunlinson, “and not one of the new LCD ones, either. It was one of those big old 27” cathode ray tube TV boxes. It had beautiful craftsmanship and original flooring.”
According to Dunlinson, however, economic conditions forced the kitten to sell the house via a short sale. He is now renting a U.S. Postal Service Priority Mailer.

“We can tell from a deep analysis of the photo that the wings appear to be detachable,” said Dr. Alex Hoffbauer, of Duke University. According to Hoffbauer and his colleagues, this could be a game-changing discovery for the course of kitten biological studies.
“This will rewrite all the rules,” he said.

This weekend, a spectacular meteor shower may dazzle, but as astronomer Mark Thompson reports, never bet on the Draconids. They can deny us but they can also dazzle.
The best thing about meteor showers is that you need no equipment to observe them. Just wrap up warm, get outside on a comfortable chair, sit back and watch. The moon will be gibbous on the 8th so keep your back to the Moon to increase your chances of seeing the fainter ones meteors.
Wherever you are on the 8th, it’s worth keeping your eyes on the skies during the hours of darkness as meteors can be tricky little blighters to predict and you never know, maybe, just maybe, you will get to see nature’s very own firework spectacular.
Yes, the moon will be gibbous.
