reigning.cats.and.dogs: tigerose: Eli tne Bitey likes to sit on the sink and cry for you to turn on the water. It's the shelters fault, they let tje water run in the tiny potty, which the hoomans and kittehs shared.

Speaki g of teh potty..why is it that eberytime I go to the barn, I gotta use the little girls stall??

It may be the Shelter's fault for Eli, but Theo was not quite 4 weeks old when I git him and his sibs as fosters - no clue what started the water fetish for him, but he'll do ANYTHING to get you to turn the faucet on! I've caught him trying to turn it on himself... I give him 6-9 months before he's big enough to do it on his own! Thank ceiling cat I don't pay the water bill - it's included in my (extremely high) HOA fees each month!


Biscuit and Mia both have an affinity for the bathtub. I suspect they may have been fostered in a bathroom

maynerdkitty: OK, I got off of work late last night and did NOT feel well at all. I had to pick up a RX at wally world ( on a weekend no less) and picked up a sandwich from the deli, as I was on my lunch hour. I am sure that is what did it to me. By the time I got off work and fed all the critters I was not well. I made a cup of anise tea, took some ginger root and went to bed. Had to get up and visit the bathroom and as I sat on the floor I noticed how warm it was and how tired I was. I got a pillow and throw from the sofa and and went back into the bathroom to wait out the sandwich. After praying to the porcelain gods I must have fallen asleep. I woke up hours later and felt much better, as I sat up I heard CAT TOYS falling off of me! Li-Ion was curled up near me under the edge of the vanity, I remember him walking on me and nuzzling my hair, but why would he put cat toys on me? I shook off all his art work and went back to bed for the rest of the night, slept until 7 am. and got up feeling so much better. He is a strange little cat.

Wonder if I can blame Ginger for swiping the 2 missing pattern pcs I cut & now need? Once I cut 2 more, the origs will show up. Meanwhile, they must be same place as valnt9's red milk cap.

I found my watch in a cookbook once. Two months after I had given up ever finding it again and had purchased another one! I also find things under the stove and under the refrigerator ALL of the time. It is now where I look first.

That is too damn funny! After I take my watch off, I have to put it in my jewelry box, or Theo will steal it! Little bugger loves anything that can be thrown on the floor... watches, glasses, bluetooth headsets, toothbrushes... B@$+@rd Cat! But I lurves him... Zara would likely do the same, 'cept she's too... 'Reubenesque' to jump up to where all the good loot is stashed,,,



The sad part is that this happened 30+ years ago! My only excuse was that I was going full time to the university and working too.

Litterbox: Just wanted to vent.... in the past two months, we have lost 3 of our cats. One was a foster that we were helping out till he could find a home and we had him for about 6 months and one day, he was having a hard time getting his breath. It turned out to be heartworms and we had to put him down. He was the sweetest Burmese you have ever seen. Then about a month later, our gorgeous Himmy mix just started feeling bad and we got him to the vet to find out that he likely had a blood parasite. We ended up giving him a blood transfusion and trying like hell to save him but the day we took him home he had a heart attack right in front of us and passed away. Thankfully we were all together at home. Then, about a week later, we had to put down our Penny Lane due to cancer of her mammory glands. My wife and I are about as low as we can get and it just sucks like hell. I love the good vibes here in this thread though and when we are ready, we will add to our family again. We still have two very healthy cats that sure do miss their friends.


Many big hugs to you and you wife.

That is so awful.

Aww, he was trying to make you feel better! He knows how nice it feels when you offer him fun toys to play with, I'm sure he saw you weren't doing so well and wanted to return the favour.

Clearly it worked :)
Glad you are OK.

I am so sorry you were sick, but I think Li-Ion was "sharing" his cat toys with you to make you feel better. Either that, or thought you were up and what the heck, play with me!

professional_vampire: reigning.cats.and.dogs: Dinner's almost ready - navy bean and ham soup. Total comfort food! I'm fresh outta butter, so if you'd like cornbread with your soup, stop and get some on your way, please. The real stuff, preferably salted, if you'd be so kind...

Today must be comfort food day - I've got chili cooking in the Crock Pot right now. Only 3 more hours to go!


Had a friend visiting this weekend and he made Guiness with beef for his son.
I got some, too...damn that man can cook!

Of course, just about anyone can cook if you've got a crockpot assisting you... they are the most forgiving of kitchen utensils.

I do most of my cooking stovetop and broiler while he's here...he got steak-n-eggs for breffus this morning...with dried spinach, dill, and pepper jack cheese in the eggs.
YUMMY!

I can't just scramble eggs...gotta PUT stuff in them...even if it's just herbs.

That's what I was thinking too. A while back when Mr. Witch was in bed feeling terrible I told Suzy we needed to make dad feel better. She went running into the livingroom, got her ball and jumped up on the bed and gave her ball to dad.

She lubs her daddy.

Am making progress on the Construction Project, but can sure tell I haven't sewn with the machine for yocks. Also patterns I recovered from basement behind Plumbicon's work area were my late mom's, not my own. I dunno any more where mine are, it was one of them I truly wished to have, but made do with one of Mom's.

Ouch! So glad you are OK and stayed on! Also if those are leather gloves soak them in cold water to clean them so the blood doesn't rot the leather.
My two boys got to run in the big field today while I put the wire up on the south side of the brick house pasture. I had to measure one side of their pasture with the measuring wheel. I had a dried bread slice that I was breaking up and feeding them. They followed me around the field like puppies begging for more bread treats. Castle was walking with his nose on the measuring wheel and Mountain had his chin on my shoulder.

Awwwww! He was bringing you presents to help you to feel better! What a sweet boy!

That's what I was thinking too. A while back when Mr. Witch was in bed feeling terrible I told Suzy we needed to make dad feel better. She went running into the livingroom, got her ball and jumped up on the bed and gave her ball to dad.

She lubs her daddy.

Just wanted to thank everyone for their kind words and thoughts. The house is pretty empty without Mem and Penny and I told my wife I wanted to get another kitten sometime down the road. She is pretty bitter over the whole set of affairs and is set against any new cat for a long time. She's hurting and I understand that. Mem was her baby. He was only 3 and he loved his mama. Huge cat...would get up on her chest in bed and 'nurse' on her neck. He probably weighed a good 15 lbs. All of our cats are rescues but Mem was special as he was a gift from our good friends right after my wifes mother died unexpectedly (named him Memory for her mom). They gave him to us, literally the day after my mother in law died and at the time I was thinking "what the hell! A kitten at this time is pretty shiatty!, but it was the best thing they could have done and they knew it...they knew we would focus on the kitten and it would help us get through the bad time. Mems passing was so sad the way it all went. Our vet was 99% sure it was a blood parasite, probably from a flea that caused his issue. We have had cats for years and never had an issue like this. Penny came to us after being dumped in our apartment complex about 7-8 years ago. We made the decision to take her in as she was such a sweet cat. We didnt see her for a few days and I thought she was gone when I came home and saw her sitting in the window of the apartment upstairs. I was happy she had gotten a home but sad because we didnt get her soon enough. About a week or so later, we heard a horrible commotion coming outside and found her running off other cats and basically out of her mind. We snatched her up and later discovered that she had been pregnant and had kittens with her "family". They took the kittens and split, tossing Penny outside to fend for herself. She was ours from then on and she was a great cat.

Our foster cat, Kaz was a beautiful Burmese that had apparently been very much loved at one point. He was very needy and loved to be on you or right with you. Very curious and sweet. When you picked him up, he would spin around and 'hug' you by putting his arms around your neck and pressing in as far as he could get. My wife described him as a "lovey". Every night, he had to come sleep with me and he liked nothing more than cuddling up under the covers and laying right up against me. He was just a great cat. While we were fostering him, I was trying to find a way to keep him but he simply did not get along with our other cats with the exception of our little Burmese and she loves everyone so that was no surprise. Unfortunately, we only had him for 6 months as a foster and he was apparently sick with heartworms when we got him. I mean, it was literally overnight he went from fine to WTF. We had Mem and Penny cremated and returned to us and Kaz we buried in a nice spot in our yard. It just sucks so bad but it makes us feel better to know that we gave them the best lives they could have ever had and Im trying really hard to help my wife with feeling better about things. Its just going to take time. Thanks again everyone.

Now why does Fark tell you your subscription ends in three days and then does not let you fix it on the spot?? Aaaashhhh!

Don't bother complaining, they spent all the development funds on the new voting buttons.
It's due to be budgeted in 2013.
2014 at the very latest, if the economy picks up.
