Anumati: Release...THE KITTIES!


I think my mailman must have watched that animation, and that is why he is afraid of Eli.

Good Meowning!

Hope everyone slept well. I spent the night with Eli's tail tickling my nose...I finally booted him further down the bed, and he played elastic cat until I got up..how do they stretch to twice their normal length??:)

Nert's full name is Peanut "Nert" Lapstander (of the Seattle Lapstanders). She's not very smart, her breath smells like low tide, and she is a melodramatic midnight meeper, but her hoomins love her.

Nert shares turf with Jezzy Rezzy McRezzerton (of the Seattle McRezzertons), her more imperious and curmudgeonly counterpart. Jezz for Prez.

syzygy whizz: Thanks, sherpa...
but apparently I am missing some 'plug-ins' or something from my computer.
The "quote" square stopped appearing soon after the FARK website was vandalized updated and 'improved'.

I'm still not 'over it'.


FWIW, I get that sometimes.. as soon as I log in, the 'quotes square' reappears...

RELEASE THE KITTIES
 
2012-04-28 09:04:53 AM  
Times are tough for all of us. My sales are flat due to the economy. Donations to animal charities are down. I do my thing for several dog and horse charities, but it's usually gifts of items that they can sell.

The Newfoundland National Specialty Show is starting Monday in Maryland. I have done the show several times and it's great to see the giants going through their duties to please their owners. I'm unable to attend this year, but on Monday was contacted by a friend who also vends at the shows and she asked me what I had. I had very little merchandise, but worked 17 hours to make her what came out to be 17 pounds of merchandise.

I needed to find something else to make a lucky trio of 17s, (and to give me good karma, bribing the powers so my sales would be good), So I went to paypal and sent $17 to Little Mews since they are overloaded and they are my favorite cat charity.

Not looking for any pats on the back as most of us here help out when we can, but when the numbers came up that way, I had to do something. ( their paypal address is littlemews (at) yahoo (dot) com , and if you send as a gift under "personal" they get 100%.

De-frag ran most of night on my computer, those 2 pix I still wish to bring were still too grainy. Re-scan for at least the 5th or 6th time! Plumbicon heartily suggests re-size 'em to fit myself, but the re-size appears to grainify them too much. We Got Errands to run today, so it may not be a Fully Action Caturday here.

Her butt is a launch site for turdage of mass destruction.
She can poop in the bathroom and I can smell it across the house and in the office within three minutes of dispatch. She's just that good.


Yep, I have one of those too.....worse yet, he refuses to cover his own shiat up.....didn't have a mommy to teach him I guess.....

My 4 1/2 year old cat was brought to emerg yesterday becuase he was peeing everywhere :(. No blockage but it could be a urinary tract infection or disease. Or he is just constipated (the xray showed stuff in the colon). He was poked and prodded and we came home last night and gave him morphine and some meds to help him pee. He spent a lot of time in the basement by the litter going inside and outside of it, obviously not proud of himself. Last night he finally crawled into bed and took his meds this morning like a champ. Waiting to hear from the vet :( I really want him to be ok. Took a chunk out of our savings but he's worth it.

My other cat Spirit ate some of his wet food last night. I think she's also nervous about what's going on. She's 10. She threw up twice this morning. They are now both upstairs consoling eachother.

I hope they are both ok :(

Initial try for new pix fixin place, suggested by in2it tho not directly. & it can't work; non-image image. Reckon I can promptly close my brand new account there because I'm not figuring out instantly how to use it. Wozzat from yesterday about Patience, ASAP Pls? Or just go back l8r & figure it out -- saw no Help window there.
Willkommen both Nert, & Jezz who I don''t recall from earlier, also tnx for Gazpacho pic.
Former pic fixin place won't let me have one either; timed out. sherpa suggested either incorrect or too-high security settings. Only able to do ritual Gr Good Net clickies with extreme luck also, due to frequent times out.

today is three weeks since i brought little stevie wonder home..he's adjusted perfectly from his previous life on the street.

Ikinci(my other boy) plays with him and they chase each other around, for the most part they're getting along. every once in a while Iki says ENOUGH and swats him hard then walks away.

my little monkey(the girl) hates the new edition still lol. he comes near her, she hisses and runs. she's not a happy pussy but i have faith that she'll learn to at least accept him in her world.

i'm still waiting to feel patient enough to try and teach myself to post pictures..i'd love to show my kitties off, too!

How sweet, nothing cuter than orange kittens.

For some reason, people in this area won't adopt male orange tabbys so when I saw them at the kitten nanny (the humane society's bottle baby nanny) I knew I had to take all 3 boys, I couldn't separate them. They're together all of the time. If one gets separated he will cry and the others go find him. I was able to go feed them twice a week from the time they were a week old until I brought them home Saturday.


The single sweetest, most laid-back and affectionate cat I've ever had was male marble-cake orange tabby with orange eyes. He was a big fella and solid muscle but he had the softest fur I've ever felt on a shorthair and the endearing habit of crawling into your bed and curling up next you you so you'd wake the next morning cuddled up to a purring ball of fur. I sure miss him sometimes....My current lovely is a bit more aloof but incredibly affectionate when she's in the mood. Still not sure what exactly she is because she's the only cat I've ever seen with her color pattern she's a shelter kitty of course). Any of you farkers have an idea?

No buggies at Keeneland. The Red Mile in Lexington has them.

Making a trip to the Mitten State in around 10 days and Keeneland will be a stopover. Will watch the morning workouts with friends, eat breakfast in the track kitchen, then head north.

Keeneland is a wonderful place. We go there and Kentucky Horse Park at least once a year. Johnny enjoys running around in the fields (parking) surrounding the track. They also allow well behaved dogs at the Horse Park. We have to work in Fort Mitchell in October this year, so we'll get there twice this year!!

Did tfa really compare Walmart greeters to foster animals? I mean, ok, snide comments aside, one has a soul and a purpose, and the other is a Walmart greeter.

You ever seen a Walmart greeter kill vermin? Didn't think so. Hell, I'd they did there wouldnt be any customers left.

I've been shiat on by a bird while inside a Walmart. (true story) wouldn't have happened if there were cats on patrol.

I would never pet a walmart greeter, and if I did they would probably be fired for purring.

Happy Caturday, all! I'm off to my weekly shelter volunteer shift, where there are apparently 100+ kittens in foster and adoptions... guess I will probably be getting my share of kitty farts (including some from Wayne here, who's up for adoption) today!
