Discovery of the day: Squirt bottles work great on cats and deaf men.
When I’m outside and I need help, it’s not just a simple matter of waving in my window to get my husband’s attention. With his RP/Ushers Syndrome, he can’t see me, and since he’s deaf, he can’t hear me. I had a squirt bottle on my window (which was open) for my orchids, which I decided to try in a stream to get my Hobbit’s attention to come out and help me finish cleaning up the pool pump. I gave him a little squirt (it barely reached him) and he came outside to help me! It works!
