Been awhile, eh? All this talk of advice columns has Spike excited, so we are dusting off the mailbag and handing out the advice. From Spike the Cat.

Dear Spike--
What's that rattle under my car? A piece of metal fell off last week. The car doesn't rattle when turned off.
--Gary in Etna

Its probably nothing. If it gets worse, find the duct tape and an old coat hanger and PRESTO!

Dear Spike--
Does this parka make me look fat?
--Alison from Chicago

How can I put this delicately? Everything makes you
........Ooooh look! A bird out at the feeder!

Dear Spike--
Is it true what they say about guests, fish, and 3 days????
--Abby from the country

Dear Abby--
Depends. If the guest is a poorly behaved dog who pees on the carpet and chews on my bathrobe and poops on the kitchen floor and scratches the door? 3 days is forever. If it is a goldfish in a bowl visiting? That's tasty!

re the rattly thing: The downside to driving a Subaru is the ever loosening heat shields. Mine is pretty rattle-tastic now too!

Spike is a genius and needs his own advice column.

Are underpants required?
