I recently found out about the Blue Paul Terrier, and I was wondering how one would go about 'resurrecting' the breed, as happened with the Olde English Bulldogge. I got in touch with some breeders specialising in Blue pitbulls, but they were basically retards. One guy said it was the same breed, which it isn't, pitbulls are largely descended from Staffordshire Bull Terriers (although they also have Blue Paul bloodlines, which results in the occasional blue staffy and American Staffordhsire terrier). The Blue Paul was only ever a 'blue' colour, with occasional brindle pups which were called 'red smuts' Pitbulls come in a huge range of colors with myriad features, wheras the Blue Paul had a very specific look.
Anyway none of them were interested in running a breeding program, not surprisinlgy I suppose given the cost, and then the difficulty in achieving breed recognition from the american kennel club etc.

I've got a cat that has a really wild behavior, I believe the mother was probably feral and not from a breeder. She doesn't misbehave or destroy my shit.
I give her food at the same times consistently, around 6:30 when I leave for work and again at 4:00 when I come home. I know she has enough food too.
I've been leaving my door open at night to my bed room (I live in a home with 2 other guys so it feels a bit awkward sometimes) to allow the cat to travel freely or she'll jump up on the bed and sleep at the foot of it.
None of this is a problem except the next morning. She'll wake up much earlier than me and and when she is awake she is -fucking awake-. She'll beg for food by flying around my room at 100 miles per hour and cry non-stop. I'm ok with an indication that she's hungry but hours in advance is too much. I've been ignoring the crying and just feeding her still at the same time, but it doesn't seem to be stopping or slowing down.
I don't really want to throw her out in the hallway or in the living room and close the door for her to sit by herself, though I know cats are pretty independent. Is there a way I can calm this begging behavior down or should I just indeed leave her out of my room?

Christ /an/, I never asked for this, I just wanted some mac 'n' cheese.
I was just trying to go vegan too.

I have just started a 10 gal FW set up. I'm experienced with reptiles but this is my first go at an aquarium.
I have three snails, 2 whitecloud minnows, some java ferns and anubias in there right now
I had three minnows but one jumped out the a transfer bowl when i was rescaping the plants and died. I feel pretty bad about it.
so I'm asking two things
1. what can I put in this tank (and how much) to make it the coolest community planted tank possible?
-I'm looking at definitely some cherry shrimp, maybe a loach or some cory's and more minnows or maybe neon tetras ... alternatively something mean looking or predatory would be cool, I'll take toothy and scary looking over ornate and flamboyant any day of the week.
2. the minnows have laid eggs on a plant stalk, what do i do?
