Cat Scratch: Can Your Cat Make You Go Blind? [Video]

This may sound rather random.  But I have two confessions of love to make.  #1- I love my CNN app.  #2- I love my cat, Oprah.  But on Saturday morning, a story on my CNN app  made me look at my cat Oprah and "Hmmmmm???"  Yes, I stumbled across a story about a Toledo, Ohio woman who says that her cat licked her and then she went blind in one eye. Is this possible?  Is Cat Scratch Fever a real thing?  Holy Furballs, Batman (or Catman)!  It appears so.

Chad Demonstrates How to Use The Squatty Potty [Video]

A couple of weeks ago, I happened to catch the makers of the Squatty Potty on ABC's show Shark Tank.  And I was absolutely fascinated by the idea that, instead of sitting to use the restroom, humans really are designed to "pop a squat".  And the Squatty Potty is designed to help us do just that.  It helps us do the "doo".  So, I just had to have one.  Say goodbye to grunting like Maria Sharapova playing tennis.  Say goodbye to popping a vein like you're in the movie Scanners!  Say goodbye to moaning and groaning like you're being forced to listen to Sarah Palin.  Say "hello" to the Squatty Potty and my instructional in-home demonstration!
