My cat is jealous of my wife and new daughter??

How do we deal with a cat with behavioral problems? It seems the youngest (2 years old) of our three cats is jealous of our 4 month old baby and my wife.

martial arts for kids in San Diego

I've got a friend with an adopted son. The kid has some adjustment problems from his early treatment and adjustment here. She's looking at using meds to change his behavior. I think that's not a great idea and she should look to enrolling him in martial arts classes. They are in San Diego. Can anyone recommend a program in that area? [more inside]

My cat and I are going to run away and join the circus.

Dogs seem to be easy to train to do tricks, cats, not so. I have taught her to eat treats off the furniture (and she often fluffs that) but not much else. She doesn't respond to commands or perform any tricks on demand. Can you give me hints or tips I might employ to make my cat become a star?

Studies about online social behavior?

Has anyone done any sociology-type studies about online message board behavior between users? The stuff that we're used to - flame outs, pile ons, and the like. Bonus points for any books that might be a good read.

head humping cat

Our new, ten-month old adopted male (but fixed) cat does this (knead, get down on his haunches, and hump). Unlike the previous poster, however, he does this to our heads whenever we lay down. Is there any way to get him to stop? It's not the best way to wake up. [more inside]

Can I make different categories of link text on a web page show as "unvisited" after different intervals?

With Javascript, CSS or anything else, can I make different categories of link text on the same web page behave differently? Specifically, if I wanted to make a page listing some links I need to visit daily, some I need to visit weekly and some I need to visit monthly -- could I make each category of link text change from "visited" color back to "unvisited" color after the appropriate number of days? Or if this can't be done, how would you solve this need (in a visual way, rather than just "keep a list manually of when you visit each")?

Dog fears drains

Why does my dog have a fear of storm drain openings along curbs and gutters? I have a small (10 lb) dog who absolutely will not walk past a gaping storm drain. On our walks, every time we encounter a drain, I have to pick her up and carry her past. Any ideas why she has this fear, and any suggestions on how to cure her of it?

Help me re-train my cat!

My cat begs for attention when I am on the computer. I have tried to wear her out before I get online with lots of love and play time, and I've also tried distracting her in appropriate ways (fishing pole and laser pointer) while I'm on the computer. The problem seems to be getting worse, and it has just occured to me that I've accidentally trained her to think of computer time as play time. What do I do? [more inside]
