    I make my own yogurt. After the yogurt is done thickening the milk and cream, we drain it until it is the consistency of cream cheese. This leaves a bunch of liquid whey. Can I give that to my ducks?

    Other weird kitchen waste we generate that I wonder if the ducks can have....

    Jicama peels
    Cucumber peels
    Coyote squash peels

    ???

    Cats?! Do you have too many?
    Cats are the least of my problem.
    Sometimes I wish I lived with just animals.
    Much easier to get along with.

    I have 3. We were down to one ancient one for a little while and were looking forward to being cat-free soon. Then my son moved back home because he was geting ready to join the arm but his lease was up. He brought his cat that he took with him when he moved out and then ANOTHER one he adopted from one of his flaky room mates. So yeah. 3.

    1 is 19 (Cookie), one is 11 (Xena) and Zeus in only 1.

    It wouldn't be so bad but I have developed allergies to cats and it gets a little worse every year.
