It's just a hassle. " Her solution?

Cotton Cotton is an 8-year-old spayed Lilac Toti Point Himalayan. Bottle-fed and hand-raised in her early years, the personal attention disappeared when her owner became too busy, said DiAnna Pfaff-Martin, founder of the Newport Beach-based Community Animal Network. Pfaff-Martin said that Cotton's owner had worked many hours a day, often late into the evening, leaving Cotton home alone. Eventually, she refused to use her litter box, infuriating her owner, who took Cotton to a veterinarian to be put to sleep.

Danette Goulet CORONA DEL MAR -- Children greeted the lazy days of summer with a day of intense activity Tuesday at Our Lady Queen of Angels School. It was students' last full day of classes at the private Catholic school in Corona del Mar and it was spent jumping in bounce houses, tossing bean bags and footballs and dousing each other with water balloons. For some, a highlight was indulging in snow cones and cotton candy -- a new addition this year's field day. "I've had too much sugar.

Santa Claus celebrates his 60th birthday in our household this holiday season. I speak not of Father Christmas, who's more like 400 years old and dates back to 17th century Britain, or St. Nick, who was birthed in New York some time in the 19th century. I'm talking about a little 6-inch-tall, cotton-ball Santa who joined my family in December 1951. He's been perched atop the loftiest branches of our Christmas tree - next to the angel - every year since. That's 61 Christmases this year.

Spas are no longer girls-only clubs, as more men are getting facials, massages and other treatments, local spa directors say. Men are apparently becoming more comfortable with the idea of being pampered, perhaps because spas in general are becoming a more popular way for people to de-stress after a hard day or week of work. But the idea of getting the same spa treatments as the ladies may still intimidate men. To counter this, many local spas are creating treatments designed specifically for men, using more masculine essential oils and incorporating sports and TV into some relaxation treatments.

After cleaning up with first-place times, Emily Cotton stayed to help clean up. Cotton, a senior team captain for the Costa Mesa High girls' track and field team, won two events and anchored a winning relay in the Mustangs' season-opening 107-20 win over Westminster on March 20. Those wins in the 1,600 meters, 300 hurdles and 1,600 relay were big for the girls' team, helping the Mustangs get off to a winning start. They've earned her Daily Pilot Athlete of the Week honors.

But the ones playwright Amy Freed is concerned with in her latest epic, "Safe in Hell" -- that's an altogether different breed of pilgrim South Coast Repertory is giving Freed her third world premiere (following "Freedomland" and "The Beard of Avon") and this one's a satirical jab at the 1691 Mathers, young preacher Cotton and his imposing fellow cleric father, Increase.
