Yikes! This is one of the reasons I stay in the fresh water. Sorry to hear of your loss.

I have super trained cats. They're not allowed on the train set or most of my tanks. They won't even jump up on these areas when I'm not home.

I am super affectionate and loving 99.9% of the time, but if they break the few rules I have I let them know with immediate results. They are not afraid of me at all because I am very clear and very quick at indicating what is off limits.

My son turned out great too. I recognised the difference between a manipulative cry and a sincere cry when he was only a baby, and I have no problems with him now (he's now 10). He took an expensive R/C copter apart and couldn't get it back together recently and his only punishment was the humiliation he felt when the R/C guy commented about the screws that were stripped out to hell. He learned his lesson, and I needed to tell him that I did the same thing when I was a kid. He just doesn't stop asking questions and talking, and that's OK with me.

I'm assuming the temp went up because of the kids?
