BLOOD FOR BUTTERCUP Wednesday, October 29
In September, Dr. Sean Perry of the Marathon (Florida) Veterinary Hospital saved the life of Buttercup, an orange tabby who needed blood — by giving him a transfusion from a West Palm Beach dog blood bank. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, 62 cats have been known to receive such “xenotransfusions,” and cats are apparently the only animals (besides dogs) that can safely process dog blood.

A New York doctor offers a service he calls Pokertox. Jack Berdy injects Botox into poker players’ faces to make their expressions hard to read. With facial muscles paralyzed, they’re in no danger of betraying subtle emotional signals that might help opponents guess their strategy. There might be value in adopting a poker face when you’re trying to win at poker or other games. But for the foreseeable future, take the opposite approach. You’re likely to be successful if you reveal everything you feel. Let your face and eyes be eloquent
ROUTINE CLAIMS Wednesday, October 29
When a van on official business for the city of St. Paul, Minnesota, accidentally hit Megan Campbell’s Nissan Pathfinder in August, Campbell, naturally, filed a claim against the city for the $1,900 damage — normally just a cost of business for a city and one of about 400 claims St. Paul has processed this year.
TAURUS: September 10-16 Wednesday, September 10
As far as I know, there’s been only one battleship in all of history named for a poet. A hundred years ago, the Italian navy manufactured a dreadnought with triple-gun turrets, calling it Dante Alighieri, after the medieval genius who wrote Divine Comedy.
SPOUSAL SUPPORT Wednesday, October 29
Pauline Chai and her estranged husband, Khoo Kay Peng (a Laura Ashley executive), are battling in a London courtroom in a very expensive divorce, with the current issue to determine whether the English judge has jurisdiction instead of courts in the couple’s native Malaysia.
SCORPIO: August 6-12 Wednesday, August 6
A teenage Pakistani boy decided he wanted to help his country’s government clean up the local Internet. Ghazi Muhammad Abdullah made a list of over 780,000 porn sites and sent it to the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority. Big job! Hard work! I’d love you to summon similar levels of passion and diligence as you work on behalf of your favorite cause. The weeks ahead are prime time to get excited about changes you’d like to help create.
GEMINI: September 10-16 Wednesday, September 10
If you go to a convenience store and order a Double Big Gulp drink, be prepared to absorb 40 teaspoons of sugar. What’s an even greater challenge to your body is the sheer amount of fluid you have to digest: 50 ounces. Fact is, your stomach can’t easily accommodate more than 32 ounces at a time.
SAGITTARIUS: August 6-12 Wednesday, August 6
As a journalist for the Papua New Guinea Post-Courier, Simon Eroro wanted to interview a group of indigenous rebels in a remote jungle. He was willing to do what was necessary to get the big scoop. After a difficult journey through rough terrain, he was told he would be given the information he sought on one condition: that he be circumcised with bamboo sticks as part of a cleansing ritual. Eroro agreed, got the story and won a prize for his report. I don’t recommend you go quite that far in pursuit of your current goal. On the other hand, it’d be wise to consider making a sacrifice.
CANCER: September 10-16 Wednesday, September 10
If you surrender to the passive part of your personality, you’ll be whipped around by mood swings in the days ahead. You’ll hem and haw, snivel and procrastinate, communicate ineptly, and be confused about what you really feel.
