I have four cats. I just found a live flea on one of them.
How can indoor cats (they *never* go outside) get fleas? [more inside]

An old guy (friend/acquaintance) kindly invited me to sleep at his house when I needed a place to sleep one night. I'm a female in my 20's and he was probably in his 60's.
He told me he had a couch and a bed (his bed).
He said I can sleep on the bed.
So I said "oh, you can sleep on the bed." of course implying that I would sleep on his couch.
He misunderstood and apparently thought I meant we would sleep together on the bed. So he says,
"Oh no, I don't want to take advantage of you, so you sleep on the bed and I take the couch."
I was a little weirded out by him saying this. Is this normal?
What do you think he meant by "take advantage of" me?
...umm have sex? No, right? I just have a hard time believing that he would even think of something like that to do with someone that is so much younger than him.
Is this creepy or not really?
I ended up not going, btw.

Does it make sense to choose a Medicare Advantage program if I have QMB and MA-AD-care through the state as well as straight Medicare and a prescription drug plan? Naturally I'd like some dental and vision coverage, which I understand are limited in Medicare. (Snowflakes below) [more inside]

A Dell PC was originally equipped with Windows ME. Somebody later installed, instead, an unauthorized copy of XP. The machine was given to me, and I legitimated the XP install by paying Microsoft for a "Genuine Advantage Kit." Will Microsoft let me use that kit's CD to install XP on a different machine (perhaps an Apple) if I get rid of the first machine? Thanks.

When fleas can't nibble on your cats ('cuz you've treated the felines with Advantage or something), what do tehy live on? Fur? Cat food? They should just starve. But they say that if you don't sweep them daily you don't get rid of them... [more inside]

How appropriate is it to consider someone your mentor, when you're hoping he'll grant you with something major in the future? Is this taking advantage of him and the mentorship? Or am I just being paranoid? [more inside]

What do rich people have that we don't? To be more specific, what are the little inconveniences that the middle class/lower class/middle-rich/foo/bar have to deal with, but when you have enough money you can get around easily. I don't mean the obvious ones, I mean things like showers that you have to fiddle with to get the temperature, or razor burn. [more inside]

Canine flea/tick preventative treatment? I have a rough and tumble pup (18 pounds, 18 months old). He's quite an outdoor companion, and I find ourselves walking more wooded trails this year. I expect fleas, and especially ticks, are going to be a concern this summer. I am staying completely away from Hartz in all shapes and forms. I am very open to the idea of natural/herbal/homeopathic flea and tick preventatives as long as they work well. I am also interested if anyone has any experiences with Frontline or Advantage. Whatever the treatment, it would have to withstand bathing, as he is groomed professionally once a month and usually is rinsed down or bathed at home once a week (depending on how much mud he gets into). I will consult with the vet before going ahead with anything, obviously, but would really appreciate any of your personal feedback.
