Ticket resellers are just the worst people in existence. Looking at tickets for CONCACAF Gold Cup final in Chicago on July 7 and tickets are almost gone. Nearly all but single seats remaining are resells. f*** off losers.

I did get tickets to the Gold Cup final. Section 310 so nose bleed but just off center line so not bad overall. Going with my dad who doesn't really like soccer but has never been to Soldier Field so figured the trip would at least be worth that. Now just hoping for a US vs Mexico match.

Could be worse


Honestly I could deal with Mister Bubz, like this cat is dangerous to mine and I'm honestly scared this is never going to work because he's such an a******. Shouldn't have to keep her in her own room because he's a jerk. Keep trying to socialize a bit more each day, but without supervision he just stalks her and beats her up.

Kinda wondering if they'd figure it out the pecking order if I just let them out for an entire work day. Hate this

They'll figure it out.

Really hoping they do. It's not my cat that's the problem, it's her cat that attacks her. We've been trying lots of methods online, but every time it seems to end the same way.
Years ago when I had one cat, I adopted another. The cat I had was an alpha male, no doubt. They fought for a few days and then became the best of brothers over the years.

It might be a major difference between 2 male cats versus 1 male and 1 female. I think 2 males can workout a pecking order versus 1 neutered male that is frustrated.

Someone else in my family adopted kittens and got one Male and one Female. They were great pets until they became adult cats then the male would tackle and bite the female on the neck. It always started out as playing or chasing, but he would get to aggressive not leaving the female cat alone and then eventually bite.

A Vet suggested that might be what's going on. I'd wonder how this male cat behaves around other male cats. Maybe still territorial at first, but calm down?

I’ve had males and females, and other than the occasional fight, they were brothers and sisters. The girls were not shy about attacking the boys. One boy would get a little too rough, rarely, but I’d discipline him, time out in a crate.He would always know he did something wrong too.

It might have depended on the breed to or maybe he wasn't diciplined right.

I'm also curious how many cats you're talking about? I wonder if it makes a difference between having just 1 female and 1 male where 2 cats a fixated on each other versus several cats.


The internet is on the case:

Went better today. They were able to hang out in her room without supervision for over an hour so that's progress! He's learning how to not be as aggressive, and they sat about a foot apart for like twenty mins before it got slappy.

This gets me every other month or so... if you want to see the body and face of an angel transform to an abomination made by a cruel Hollywood fate;
