Welcome back to the wonderful world of "Glee," folks. Let's start with the elephant in the room. You may have realized at some point that something was slightly off. Was it the fact that Artie, Blaine, Tina and Sam were still there? Was it the fact that prom was being talked about prematurely? Was it the fact that Rachel still didn't know anything about "Funny Girl" or that the episode never once addressed the fact that we had spent the last three months away from this lovable cast of characters?

This kitty could be hard for some folks to look at, but in so many other ways, he's defying all sorts of expectations. This cat with two faces was brought to a vet's office at one day old to be euthanized. But a woman who worked in the office took pity on the strange little fellow and, though others told her she shouldn't, she took him home and gave him a chance. The cat she calls "Frank and Louie" just celebrated his 12th birthday on Sept. 8. He's the world's oldest living Janus cat, named after the mythical Roman character with two faces on one head.

We rescued a kitten, Socs, who was under a Dumpster and weighed only 2 pounds and in need of care. But I also have Mustang, an 11-year-old outdoor cat who was always friendly and pleasant until Socs arrived. Mustang growls and hisses all the time when Socs is near. We love both cats dearly - how can we get the old gray lady to like the new kid? It can be difficult to convince an adult cat that an energetic, curious kitten isn't the cause of all things unpleasant, but it is possible. Be sure to set up separate areas for them so that Socs never needs to enter Mustang's zone for food or water.

West Coast scientists studying cats and the allergies they trigger in humans discovered serendipitously that not all felines carry the sneeze-gene that produces troublesome allergens. If true - there's always room for doubt about early claims such as this - millions of allergy sufferers who are forced to love Felix and Sylvester from a distance might have a future in which they can have their cat and pet it, too. Not everyone, of course, is fond of mousers. But the country's estimated 30 million cats have their fans, and a big chunk of the $35 billion pet industry comes from cat owners.

When the lights go out at McKinley High, there's speculation (from Sam) that it's a zombie apocalypse or (from Unique) that it's Beyonce's Superbowl half-time show. (Shout-out to the Ravens!) Anyhow, the power outage leads to the decision that New Directions' theme for the week is "unplugged. " Up first is Sam's acoustic rendition of The Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost that Lovin' Feelin'. " Then he goes on a rampage about how everyone is too technology-obsessed. Later we get Ryder on REM's "Everybody Hurts.

On Monday,  April 8. I took a feral cat in our neighborhood, "Pretty Kitty," to Spay Now, a low-cost spay clinic across the street from Laurel Hospital, to be spayed. Just as I'd gotten her in front of the door of their clinic, she popped the lock on the carrier, leaped out of it, and took off for a huge, tall grass field next to their place.  Immediately,  one or two clinic workers, a couple of other people in the area and myself all took off after her. They got her cornered in an area of the business complex that was just beyond the field.

Sharpen your claws, cat owners: NPR caused a bit of a catfight this week with its story on killer kitties , which wasn't about about lions and tigers. No one is surprised that bird lovers and outside cat owners are often at odds -- the debate crops up on my neighborhood email list every few months, with bird people defending their feathered friends from the instincts of felines, and cat owners arguing that kitties have the need to go outside untethered, even in urban areas. According to the NPR story, a Smithsonian Institution scientist has his own theory: that 40 to 70 percent of the U.S.'s 85 million cats are allowed outside either by pet owners or because they're strays (that's 47 million free-range pets for those keeping track)

Guest blogger Jen Broadwater here, filling in for L'Oreal, who is otherwise occupied this evening leading her fabulous life. When L'Oreal asked me to pinch hit for her tonight on Glee, my first thought was, "Uh oh, I guess I need to learn the new characters' names. " (Heretofore I thought of them as "Rachel 2," "Quinn 2," "Puck 2" etc...) Though resistant to change as I am, I will admit that the new characters are growing on me ... slowly. Just like a high school graduate floundering to find new purpose in the world, the show itself has been challenged to forge a new foundation.

Tom Stoner made his fortune owning AM radio stations, where the weekly Top 40 was eagerly anticipated by devoted listeners. Would their favorite artists move up this week? Would that new release make it? "I remember how easy it was to decide who came on the list," recalls the Annapolis businessman and philanthropist, "but how hard it was to decide who went off the list. That was the part of the process that fascinated me. " At the Severn River home of Stoner and his wife, Kitty, "Top 40" takes on a new meaning.

Question: How do I train my adorable but irascible cat to let me pet her tummy? Answer: Just as not every person likes being tickled, not every cat likes belly rubs. But if your kitty isn't thrilled by your attempts at affection, there's hope. It will just take a bit of patience and simple classical conditioning. Don't ever forget that cats are sharp. Play these games when kitty is calm and happy, and don't push her to a point of discomfort. First, you'll need to find her very favorite treats.

On the phone, Lisa Loeb isn't very chatty. But she is polite, her words softly spoken. Since her ascent up the pop charts in '94, she has been the antithesis of what's hot: a brainy singer-songwriter in dark-frame glasses with a flippy That Girl-like do, strumming a guitar and crooning lyrics of love lost and found. Her style is never obtrusive or overdone; there's an openness. "The songs are inspired by different experiences," she says, "but they aren't too autobiographical." On Saturday night, the Dallas native will perform at Temple Oheb Shalom, 7310 Park Heights Ave., in a concert open to the community (age 10 and up)

When the "Show Your Soft Side" campaign debuted last year, Baltimore learned that real tough guys treat animals with soft hands -- and people across the county took notice. They were impressed to hear about the likes of Raven Jarret Johnson, MMA fighter John Rallo and Oriole Adam Jones were posing on city billboards loving up their pets with the message "Only a punk would hurt a dog or cat. " The campaign went viral and one upshot is the TV show "Must Love Cats" came to town to film an episode which will air at 8 p.m. Saturday on Animal Planet.
