Dear Accidental Reader,
I’m so sorry. If a search engine directed you here, you probably haven’t found whatever you were looking for. I’d hate for this visit to be a total loss, however, so I’m going to try to help you find what you really want.
Speaking of scary movies, the most common search term that brings people here is animal-themed horror movies — which is a little odd, because I’ve only ever written one post on the subject. I’d recommend John Carpenter’s The Thing. Technically, it isn’t a horror movie, but it is scary. It’s also not really animal-themed, but it does feature an outstanding performance by a dog acting like an alien pretending to be a dog and trying to act casual while walking into a pack of actual dogs. You could also try Let Me In, a horror movie that features a bunch of cats, although it isn’t really animal-themed. But don’t watch it with a cat on your lap. Seriously. Oh, and apparently there’s a movie about ants on an airplane. I haven’t seen it, but based on this review, it sounds pretty realistic.
Speaking of cats, were you searching for Maru? I love Maru — of all the cats in all the world belonging to people I’ve never met, he’s my favorite. This blog is way, way far down the list of Maru search results, so if you were persistent enough to wind up here, you must be either a die-hard Maru fan or Maru’s intellectual property attorney. If you’re a die-hard Maru fan, then you’ve probably already subscribed to his blog and/or YouTube channel. If you’re Maru’s intellectual property lawyer, then I’d be willing to consider making an offer of say, four catnip mice and half a dozen empty boxes in exchange for permission to continue to use Maru’s image in these two posts.
A surprising number of people come here wondering whether they can take a grapefruit through airport security. The answer (in the US, at least) appears to be yes, but it will have to be x-rayed.
If you were looking for information about the first Facebook interface, then you were probably led to my completely unhelpful GM / Facebook prototype post. Sorry. I’m not sure how to find that information, but if I were you, I’d probably start with the Wikipedia “History of Facebook” article.
I’ve tried to convince myself that the people who searched for vampire bees were looking for my Vampire Bees post, but realistically, if that’s what you searched for, you’re probably looking for those bees in New York that started producing blood-red honey.
Were you looking for a robotic toy mouse? If so, I’m afraid I can’t help you. This post was inspired by a remote-controlled mouse that my cats got as a gift; they loved it, but it died after a week or two. I haven’t found a better one, although Sphero, the robotic hamster ball looks promising. If you know of a more robust remote-controlled or robotic toy mouse, I’d love to hear about it.
If you’re wondering whether coffee leaves are toxic to cats, the answer is yes. If you’re wondering why your coffee leaves are turning brown, I have no idea. My own coffee plant is doing worse than it was when I wrote this post.
If you’re looking for chicken recipes or cat food recipes, you were probably sent to my April Fool’s recipe post. It won’t provide the recipe you want, but if you stop to read it, the passage of time will make you (or your cat) hungrier, and whatever you do wind up cooking will seem to taste better.
I keep telling myself that searches for that was disappointing lead here because I have a post with those words in the title, but I still find it a little depressing.
If you came here looking for teleportation device accessories, then you probably landed on one of my product reviews — but please, please, please tell me why you were doing that search. I get that pretty frequently, and I’m dying to know.
Again, my apologies, and I hope you find what you’re looking for. Or that you decide to stick around and subscribe. Or both.

P.S. Did I guess wrong about what you were looking for? Did I leave out your search term? Did I actually get something right? Let me know by leaving a comment.
