Dear Karma Cleanser:
I rescued a kitten from the engine block of a car. Not wanting to return him to his former life, I took him home and I fell in love with him. Because the cat was found feral, he prefers to be outdoors. In the four years since his rescue, he's brought home about a handful of chipmunks, rabbits and birds, sometimes alive and unharmed, sometimes headless. I put a collar with a bell on him in hopes that it will give advance warning, but he still manages to catch them. How will my karma be affected by saving the life of one animal only to have him kill others?

There's an old adage about a turtle that lets a snake ride on his back to cross a flooded river. Halfway across, the snake suddenly bites the turtle. As they both drown, the turtle asks why would the snake do such a stupid thing. The serpent replies, "You knew I was a snake when you let me on your back." You knew it was a cat you were rescuing, not a gerbil. Your karma isn't necessarily affected, but if the massacre truly unnerves you, perhaps you should try a louder bell?
Dear Karma Cleanser:
I am having a debate with my boyfriend. Every time one of his co-workers has any sort of success, he starts to burn with envy and sometimes outright aggression. He always says things like, "That should've been me." I tell him that he's looking at things the wrong way, and that he should celebrate the successes of his co-workers because he'd want them to celebrate his. It seems to me like his envy comes from a bad place, and one that will ultimately poison any success he might have. Am I wrong?
-- So You're Scaring Me
Your beloved's envy is rooted in fear, a view that if other folks succeed, he will surely fail. But when you're in love -- with life, with the universe, with yourself -- giving compliments and wishing others well comes easily. Until your boyfriend discovers that for himself, the jealousy will prevail.

Because they are super-duper horny, of course.
Hoping he cleaned his pooh hammer before hand
