May I ask the name of the non-scented laundry detergent and
where you can buy it? I have looked and looked and they ALL
seem to have some chemical crap in them that I am allergic to
(like virtually ALL perfumes on the market today).


The wording of your post contains an amusing coincidence. You used the
word ALL twice.

The non-scented laundry detergent I use is ALL Free Clear. ALL liquid
detergent is available in several formulations. Be sure to choose the
white jug marked "Free Clear." The label boasts "#1 Dermatologist
Recommended."

ALL is made by Lever Brothers and is available at most supermarkets. I
bought it recently at Eckerd Drug when they had it on sale.

In the 1990s there was a mockingbird here who was in love with the cat
next door. She paid him no attention, which bothered him no end.
When she faced in his direction, he'd screech at her, and when she
turned away he'd swoop in and fly within inches before breaking off,
fanning the cat to get her to turn around. That mockie wouldn't sing
anything interesting until some time in the wee hours, when he'd belt
out Berlioz or something like that and wake us up. Daytime he'd just
screech. Screechy Cat Mocker eventually found a lady bird he liked
named Chip; at least, that's what she said her name was when I asked.

My friend Nadine had near her bldg. Tweedle-Dee Clock Mocker, who
imitated her electronic clock alarm.

I now have one feeder in front of the house, one on the back patio and
one near the other back corner of the house. I don't think he can cover
all these, though he did attempt to cover the one in front when it was
just on the driveway. I may put a fourth one farther back near the
garden. He does not bother smaller birds like wrens too much, but does
bug thee larger birds such a cardinals and jays.

No, no, no. Pony hair and goat undercoat. The birds go crazy for it when I
put it on the garden fence after brushing my critters out. :-) They even
seem to like dog hair too!

Cotton lint from your clothes dryer filter might be preferable to cat fur.
