I had a cat go down our fireplace chimney. No fire was going...fortunately. I really thought I was going to have to go through the bricks to get it. But I forced the draft open wider with a 2x4. It apparently saw the light and dropped down and crawled out. No vet Bill's, but it did need a bath.

My daughter is doing a lot of sewing and has made a pin cushion, I've been thinking we should attach a little sand bag. Any advice as to a particular sort of sand to put inside?

I grow purslane & portulaca "moss rose"in my garden paths. They typically stay low to the ground and I use the ornamental cultivars, which produce lovely flowers. I love it in the paths because it's soft, yet tough enough to handle me walking all over it. As long as they're in contact with the soil, any pieces that break off just put out new roots and keep growing. :)
