Trash log. So, is this a 'shlog'?
My oldest cat, Slithy Tove, died over a year ago. I miss him, but I think the younger cat, Tagalong, misses him more. They got along well, and seemed to provide the kind of companionship for each other that a human can't. I've been vaguely on the lookout for a new cat for the past six months, and my vet promised to keep her eye out for a nice kitten. I got a call yesterday that one of the vet's tech's cats has four month-old kittens. I'm going over this morning to take a look at them, although I won't be able to bring one home for another two weeks at least.

|Top radical is 'bamboo' (竹), here meaning 'thin strip of wood'. The bottom radical is a Non-General Use character meaning 'thorn', acting phonetically to express 'beat'. Thus, this character originally meant, 'to beat with a strip of wood', leading it its current meaning of 'whip'. Its other meanings come from a confusion with another character. Henshall suggests taking the bottom radical as a 'tree (木) with droopy branches', and as a mnemonic: 'Plan to fix droopy tree branches with bamboo.'|
