NOt sure if this is the forum I should be posting in, but;

I'm thinking of getting a semi exotic house cat.

I'm leaning toward a Savannah but are there better choices?

At first I thought about breeding but for f1s and f2s the cost from reputable sites are in the low 5 figures, WAY out of my range.

For 'fixed' the range is less than a $1,000 and doable.

Another possibility is the Maine Coon Cat (don't worry, there's no racism involved), or maybe the Serval or Serengeti Cat.

Any thoughts/advice/suggestions.

BTW, I have a 2 1/2 yo Tabby and it may be possible to introduce one of these exotics byo an animal rescue but I don't want the existing cat to drop of an embolism.

Right now I am 'boarding' my daughter's 70 lb Huskie in the basement and my cat almost never goes downstairs except to be let out and jumps at any sound, even upstairs.

You just can't make this up; Florida man accidentally shoots self in leg after gun safety class

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/02/22/florida-man-accidentally-shoots-self-in-leg-after-gun-safety-class/

"Police in Boynton Beach, Florida responded on Friday to a call from a man who claimed he had accidentally shot himself. According to the Palm Beach Post, officers found the man in the bed of his pickup truck nursing a gunshot wound to the leg.

The injured man explained that he was headed home from a gun safety class and had stopped on the side of the road to inspect his Glock pistol. He told officers that he had removed the ammunition clip, but failed to remove the bullet in the weapon’s chamber. As he was manipulating the slide, the weapon discharged.

Police provided emergency first aid treatment at the scene, then transported the victim to a local hospital."

You'd think he'd have stayed awake when the instructor said to "make sure there is not a round in the chamber and ALWAYS keep the safety on".

Just sayin.

That is so funny.

Right-wing pastor: Pat Robertson committed ‘blasphemy’ by mocking creationism.

"A pastor affiliated with the American Family Association has accused religious broadcaster Pat Robertson of “blasphemy” for mocking creationism.

Robertson responded to last week’s debate between Bill Nye, “the Science Guy,” and Creation Museum founder Ken Ham by flatly denouncing the idea that the Earth was only 6,000 years old.

“Let’s be real,” Robertson said on his “700 Club” program. “Let’s not make a joke of ourselves.”

Rev. Mark H. Creech, executive director of the Christian Action League, argued God established all scientific laws, so “good science will always point to Him.”"

I remember the late 60s and something was just 'getting off the ground'; televangelists.

Now, Pat Robertson HIMSELF, who founded the Christian Broadcasting Network (which features HE as the host), what was later to become ABC Family Channel and Regent University (the FUCKING Regent Hospital) and others is now FUCKING BLASPHEMY!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is so fucking funny!"
