A $300 repair on an appliance that was actually used for only 7 months.
Grrrrrrap !
1st technician visit $95.00 - Dx: motor bad - need to order part - coming from Alabama !
2nd technican call $192.50 - part will not arrive til Mon - OK to schedule repair for Tues ?

Jeez - No parts warehouse west of the Mississippi
It's like LG Corp never had a motor go out on a dishwasher on the west coast before this one.
Double Grrrrrrap !

Cheap? It means inexpensive.

My post meant I'll just about give them away...in fact, at the time I would have paid someone to take them.

No. I'd say that too. You really haven't heard the phrase?

Day three of looking after my friend's cats and they're both missing. Didn't come home last night or this morning. One of them is a regular disappearer -I've been to all the places she usually ends up, one of them saw her yesterday, but she went again. The other one is supposed to never venture very far from his food bowl. Well done, monster, nice work

There's a stream at the end of their land, and apparently there's a tree over it such that the disappearer can get across but not back. but I've been to all the places on the other side of the stream and nada. She has a collar and tag and chip and the "Send me Home" people whose number is on her tag have my number for this week, but nothing.

If it were my cats (whose mom is the disappearer) I wouldnt worry so much, but they're not and both of them at the same time is nuts. And one has a habit of getting herself "adopted".....

....and I have a tax return i need to be doing today......

Crap.

Have you tried shaking a bag of cat food outside, or another noise they hear when it's feeding time? The disappearer might be on a Milo and Otis type adventure, but the other one might be nearby but hiding.

Hope you find them.

Cats remind me of the double high fiving squirrels in the car crash commercial.
Leave em alone and they will come home waggin their tails behind them!
