    Yes. I don't speak it, but I at least know that one bit of otherwise useless trivia.

    Anyone know how to get creosote out of pet fur? My genius kitty has decided it is great fun to roll in the furnace runoff gunk in my basement.

    There is a ton right around her eyes so I'm wary of using anything too strong. Cats can't deal with essential oils, so that rules out most human soaps. I've tried some google suggestions (weak vinegar, cat fur shampoo, and unscented dish soap). Nothing seems to work.

    Everything I've read said it won't be easy, and it will take several washings.

    Also diluted vinegar and greasecutter type dish soap is common recommendations.

    I mean, I'd just say some Dawn and elbow grease. If its good enough for baby ducks in an oil spill it should be good for your cat.

    My phone is... Well, not dying per se, but if we're doing a comparison to human stages of life, it's definitely retired and suffering from a couple old age afflictions. Ergo, I'm starting to look at a new one and I have absolutely no idea where to even start except for budget.

    So, DLP, good phones - Android preferred - in that area that straddles high budget/low-midrange (say €250 as a baseline, not overly worried about jumping up a bit, but I'd prefer a 2 as the first number of three). Would additionally prefer to stay away from companies that have been implicated in spying stuff, but that might be a bit too much to ask these days.

    Good hardwares at a budget other than that there isn't much else unless you like Samsung. Their mvno range is decent not usually just not my style.

    If budget wasn't an issue I'd suggest to you the Pixel XL2 or XL3

    Or just the 2 or 3.

    There's Asus Zenfone, Blu and apparently you can get the Galaxy S8 for about 350. So dunno.

    If you’re up for a Samsung, you can do little wrong with the A8. I’m not speaking from first-hand experience, but one of my friends has owned one since November and is very happy with it (even though she came from an S3, so that’s pretty much a given in any case). The 32GB version is hovering around €290 in Germany right now, so it should be in your price range. The battery, display and camera are all very solid, it is reasonably fast (though nothing to write home about) and it has IP68 certification as well.

    The only small issue is that you have to choose between a second SIM card and a memory card, but other than that, a very solid device.
