Stray cat --> Outdoor pet?

So, yay - I've been chosen! But I can't have a cat, not really - my entire family is allergic to cats, and I have two pets now (a dog and a bird) who would NOT be okay with a cat in the house. My question is really about whether it is kind to try and keep a stray cat as an outdoor-only pet. [more inside]

Locking sliding garage doors from both sides?

My neighbor and I share a garage door that we'd like to keep secure. Without walking around the block, it's easier for me to open it from within and easier for him to open it from without. Currently, the door is locked with a latch and a padlock on the outside, but I'd like to be able to unlock it from the inside too. Is there a solution?

Outside temperature sensor that can record data

I want to know how cold a certain spot on my balcony gets during the night. How do I achieve this? Preferrably very low-cost and low-fuss and, of course, not having to get up during the night. The range measured would be -10C to +10C (14F to 50F), and although I don't need to know the exact temperature, it would be nice to have a number that is off by no more than a couple of degrees.

cat in tree freezing

We moved yesterday. Our indoor cat hasn't used her litter or food all day. There is something cat-shaped with glowing eyes in a tree in our backyard about 30 ft up. It is below freezing (Arlington MA). What do we do? The local fire department says they don't do cats. I've been on hold with the emergency line for Angell Memorial for 5 min.

Which Dr Who episode is where everything is a pure white landscape?

I recall an espisode with I think Tom baker, where everything was pure WHITE outside the tardis. No features just pure white, I think maybe a ruined castle. Like the film 'nothing' with David Hewlett. I would love to watch it again!

my cat, my cat, my claw-y claw-y cat.

one of my cats claws up furniture. I've tried a huge list of fixes, with no luck. I'm considering that he's bored. I'm on my last thread here, and the options are maybe now he goes outside and hope that being less bored helps, or that he gets declawed, which I'm totally against. help me with more creative ideas?

Looking for Netflix or similar in Japan.

Does anyone know of a Netflix or Hulu type streaming video service that is accessible outside of the U.S., in Japan specifically? No doubt Japan has its own such services, but I am considerably less than fluent in Japanese, so I am looking for English and English subtitled films/television. Also, I wouldn't be able at this point to navigate the Japanese services' websites, so I probably am looking for a U.S based service that allows overseas access. Thanks a lot.
