A few days ago I thought I had found a nice pressure gauge.
But it turned out to be a stupid vaping pen.

Sorry to hear, @Korina .
Thanks Tom; it's probably for the best, as our cats are old and cranky. Black cats are popularly referred to as house panthers. Apt.

I had a jet black cat for 13 years, and she was a great cat. I just lost her partner 2 weeks ago, and it seems so weird to live without one after all these years.

That's sad, I rode by a dead cat that looked just like my black cat while on my way to work before, and didn't see the body until I'd turned the corner. I did not want to start my day like that.

I was riding home from my GFs the night I lost the black cat and saw one sitting by the bike path staring at me as I drew near. Ordinarily, animals will flee when they see me at night, but this one sat there slowly blinking at me like they do when they trust someone. It was very comforting, and I've never seen that cat again - not had I before.

That sadly reminds me of the young? tiny adult? black cat I saw last year on the edge of the highway onramp. The jet black fur looked so plush and velvety; it was quite saddening.
