According to the Jerusalem Zoo, the sand cat's extinction in Israel followed the territorial exchange between the Jewish state and Jordan in the peace treaty with the Arab country signed in 1994.

Does that make Bill Clinton a kitten killer?

They are pals. The were born a week apart, but grew up in the same house. They've known each other all their lives. They sleep together, explore together, follow each other around, roughhouse, etc...

2012-08-16 10:25:12 PM  
so, about two weeks ago we took two of my sister-in-laws cats for what is supposed to be 4-6 months (may be shorter, may be longer, may be permenent, a bit up in the air)

one male, one female, the female is friendly and generally just wants attention and someone to pet her, unfortunetly if she isn't getting the attenion she think she deserves she is loudly vocal about complaining, the male is very shy, took a few days of me just sitting in the room they are in for an hour or so for him to get to the point that he was willing to come out and sit across the room in the open and look at me, and a few days of me feeding them for him to get to the point where he didn't run and hide as soon as i entered the room

the last few days we have been slowly introducing them to our own two cats (both male), lots of hissing on the part of our two, with the new female being fairly oblivious too it and the new male being very shy/cowering, it helps slightly that in their old home they were at the bottom of the hierarchy of 5 cats so we don't think they will challenge either of our guys,

this has been a rather annoying/stressfull pair of weeks for both cats and people, thanks for letting me vent at people who will understand

We may have to trim that fluffy Biscuit butt. He continues to cough up the largest hairballs I've seen. His hair is real fine and silky...it's long but so silky I can't imagine it ever matting. Brushing him with a slicker yields little hair, yet he somehow is managing to get large amounts of it down his gullet.

Spoke with the vet about it yesterday and he thinks a trimming might be in order. We've been giving him hairball remedy but I'm worried he's going to get another impacted hairball.

Any suggestions are welcome. I have not found a brush that seems to work on this guy.

Using wet wipes will clear out loose hair, but cat food high in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids really help cut down on the shedding because they get a stronger coat. It won't stop shedding, but it will cut down on it a bit. Tuna and Salmon are probably the highest in both acids, but you can find supplements at PetSmart you can pour on other food.

If his fur is so thin a regular cat brush won't pick up the hair, get a cheap people hairbrush with stiff bristles. This is going to sound terrible, but check out the "ethnic" section of the hair aisle at your local pharmacy - many brushes specialized for particular races do a bang up job on a cat.

That's what we use for Suzy. She has a very thick very fine undercoat.

Although the best thing to get the hair is a bath. She isn't fond of baths but the last bath she got saved us about four good size tumblefurs from the livingroom.

Greetings to all.. was waiting for Furrsday.. mixed news.. little " fighter" didn't make it.. seems that both of the kittens had neurological issues.. delayed birth could be the cause.. and the first ( and last ! ) litter.. oxygen deprevation was mentioned.. the birth took too long.. I presume that's why #3 & 4 were perfectly formed but never breathed.. # 1 had become a casualty a while previously... my foster friend said Fighter passed sometime Saturday night.. had been walking in circles.... Mommacat, whom I have tentatively named 'Stretch'.. she does it so well... is now 'fixed', still refuses to even consider cat type food.. even tried the 'almost starvation' routine.. yeah.. I gave in before she did.... still have several plans to try... she is 'clean.. so I am going to try a gradual introduction to the crew.. she knows their smell, but they don't know hers.. and they won't get near the TV room where the temp cage is, if she is in the cage.. normally they are all over that room.... I have status quo cats.. they don't like change, unless it involves more food in their bowls... or an empty box..
Lawn is growing quickly.. fair amount of rain and then lots of Sun... need to come home early tomorrow afternoon.. I mow a serpentine path from the front sidewalk through front and side yards, to the side sidewalk.. complete with loops.. a friend down in the next block has two young 'uns.. 3-4... they go to a day care two doors away.. and they will definitely give diabeetus problems... on the way home, the kids will see the 'trail' and follow it, running around the loops multiple times.. their Dad loves it.. asked me Tuesday if I would do a new one.. hope I am home to see it.... think I started something.....
Sacktime.. best wishes for our Family.. may those who are not well get better quickly.... BBT

OlderGuy: Greetings to all.. was waiting for Furrsday.. mixed news.. little " fighter" didn't make it.. seems that both of the kittens had neurological issues.. delayed birth could be the cause.. and the first ( and last ! ) litter.. oxygen deprevation was mentioned.. the birth took too long.. I presume that's why #3 & 4 were perfectly formed but never breathed.. # 1 had become a casualty a while previously... my foster friend said Fighter passed sometime Saturday night.. had been walking in circles.... Mommacat, whom I have tentatively named 'Stretch'.. she does it so well... is now 'fixed', still refuses to even consider cat type food.. even tried the 'almost starvation' routine.. yeah.. I gave in before she did.... still have several plans to try... she is 'clean.. so I am going to try a gradual introduction to the crew.. she knows their smell, but they don't know hers.. and they won't get near the TV room where the temp cage is, if she is in the cage.. normally they are all over that room.... I have status quo cats.. they don't like change, unless it involves more food in their bowls... or an empty box..

yobbery: We may have to trim that fluffy Biscuit butt. He continues to cough up the largest hairballs I've seen. His hair is real fine and silky...it's long but so silky I can't imagine it ever matting. Brushing him with a slicker yields little hair, yet he somehow is managing to get large amounts of it down his gullet.

Spoke with the vet about it yesterday and he thinks a trimming might be in order. We've been giving him hairball remedy but I'm worried he's going to get another impacted hairball.

Any suggestions are welcome. I have not found a brush that seems to work on this guy.
[i211.photobucket.com image 640x480]


Can you vacuum him? I know that most horses love to be vacuumed with the brush attachment. I have seen some (rare) kitties that like it too. Maybe you can get those "sticky" gloves and pet him more, I would help with that if I could.
Good luck with the hairy Biscuit problem.

Mrs. BBBB is awake as of Wednesday. She's not very coherent or aware of things just yet, but she is responding to stimuli and can stay awake for five minutes or so at a time. Might be this weekend that she's able to hold a conversation and remember things when she wakes up from her many naps, but we will see. And as it's Caturday, coming home from the hospital last night, there was a black cat on my porch crying away. He didn't run away from me and appears to be a stray, but his coat and overall looks make me wonder if he's lost. Going to take him to the SPCA and see if he's chipped today. I didn't feel anything there, but I might have missed it. If he's not, then I have a choice of what to do. Let him stay in the house last night, and he seemed to get along with Peirogi, but Waffles just glared at him and hissed a few times, then glared at me the rest of the night. The ferrets seemed to scare him, so there weren't any problems there. No damage to the house this morning when I woke up either, so probably like a fool, he'll end up staying with us if he is a stray. So add a cat and a ferret this week to our menagerie. As for names, I'm thinking since he's all black with just a tiny spot of white on his chest that he may be a Coffee, but also thinking either Falafel or Shawarma. I'll try and post a pic later today when I can get a decent computer that isn't being a pain in the butt. Now to see what happens when I get home this afternoon and how decent the house looks, or whether or not he went crazy and tore things up.

No more kitties for me

Which makes me sad

Been following Mrs. BBBB's saga so I have been glad of the good results. Maybe the cats will help her along a bit quicker.

But c'mon, you gotta name the new cat Spot. Why be creative when you can be obvious?

Have you tried taking Claritin or zyrtec? I suspect that your reaction was frm having so many furballs in one place.

Read all rest of pg 1, now blood sugar has riz enough to let me make sense of it. Sand kittens last eve should've rizzed it just by looking at them; didna work. Needed fruit jc.
Didn't notice either that still pic was from Cinti Zoo. They're our fave residents over there (20-30 min drive from The Hoose depending on traffic). Tho extremely cute & moderately furry, they wouldn't make good house cats; instinctively know how to use those claws & fangs! Too bad that didn't save them in Israel back when border disputes were going on. But now that may be fixable, we hope.

No, I have not for cat allergy. From what I understand, those meds are not good for pet allergies, but I could be wrong.

But even if they are, I do not like the idea of living on that kind of med 24x7. The blood pressure meds and occasional asthma meds I take are bad enough. Something that messes with the immune system for something that is optional does not seem like a good trade.

I will have to live with just Caturday and the occasional visit with friends cats until medical science finds a way to permanently reset my immune system. I keep close track on that research.

yobbery, with all those brushy options suggested, you should be able to find somebrush to tame Biscuit's overly ample fur. We use a wire wig brush on the 3 Coonies.
OlderGuy, sorry too that your "little fighter" didn't make it.
Hope TheIceQueen feels better soon as well.
& BBBB, glad to hear some good news from your quarter. Re the black with the small white blaze, you may be like us -- known among the Feline Community to be a Soft Touch when conditions are right. Except for Ginger who we adopted as a kitten (found elsewhere by others) & Furry's 2 sons who were born in our garage, 2 adults came on their own & the GangOf5 were brought to us all together as tiny kittens.

They tried something like that before the surgery but the blockage was just out of reach. I guess Home Depot didn't have anything longer. :o)


I_fling_poo: How 'bout this, Yobbery?


We have one of those. It hardly does anything for Biscuit. However, when we use that brush on Nathan we end up with enough fur to make a sweater.


James72: yobbery: Any suggestions are welcome.
Get a Furminator. (check the pet sections of Home Goods or TJ Maxx, sometimes you can find them there for half the price of the pet stores).


This is on our list of things to try.


Lsherm: If his fur is so thin a regular cat brush won't pick up the hair, get a cheap people hairbrush with stiff bristles. This is going to sound terrible, but check out the "ethnic" section of the hair aisle at your local pharmacy - many brushes specialized for particular races do a bang up job on a cat.


Good idea! Nothing terrible about it...the first step in eliminating bigotry is to recognize, respect and embrace the differences.


maynerdkitty: Can you vacuum him? I know that most horses love to be vacuumed with the brush attachment. I have seen some (rare) kitties that like it too. Maybe you can get those "sticky" gloves and pet him more, I would help with that if I could.
Good luck with the hairy Biscuit problem.


According to Biscuit, the only good vacuum is a dead vacuum.
Sticky glove is something I haven't tried on him. We have an old one somewhere...I think they we're still in beta when we bought ours. They're probably much better now. You're welcome to come on up and brush Biscuit anytime.


We need to do something. Although impressive, I don't want to see Biscuit's manly six pack again.
(The vet also mentioned that intestinal blockage by hairball that requires surgery is very rare.)

Another chance for those in FL who wish to/are able to adopt one of the rescued Caboodle Ranch cats:
Copied from ASPCA e-mail:
This Saturday, August 18, the Halifax Humane Society is hosting another event to find homes for some of the remaining Caboodle Ranch cats with special needs, including those who are FIV-positive or have feline leukemia. Please see the details below.
What: Halifax Humane Society Adoption Event
When: Saturday, August 18, 10:00 A.M.-4:00 P.M.
Where: Volusia County Fairgrounds (Hester Building) 3150 E. New York Avenue (State Road 44) DeLand, FL
How to Adopt:Potential adopters should bring with them one government-issued photo ID (i.e., driver's license, passport, military ID or non-driver ID) and proof of address.

Personally don' recall either Halifax or DeLand as one of last time's locations; do recall Jax & Sarasota for sure. But then, as many who grow older, I've contracted CRS (Can't Remember S---).

yobbery I have this comb that I used to use on my Maine Coon wanna be...it was suggested to us by a judge at a household pet show. After we used the comb for about a month, Punkin won 1st in her age grp and then Best of Show... Anyhow, this comb has rotating bristles, and if you put about a 15 degree angle on it, and a tiny bit of pressure, it will comb out the undercoat and make kitteh happy. I use it on Eli the bitey, and cannot believe the amount of fur I get from him! Link follow this link, and you will see what I mean. The one shown is nicer than the one I have, mine has a plastic top on it, and the pins are set into it. Hope this helps. (I gurgled "pet comb with rotation pins, if that helps you any)
 
2012-08-17 11:42:51 AM  
Funny cat story..this morning my son tells me, "I had the strangest dream last night, I dreamed that Eli was licking my hand and I could feel it" We know it was a dream, because Eli kept his teeth to himself! lol!

My hubby reports that Eli likes to come into the room at about 5 a.m. and stick his snout into mouth of snoring hubby...I told him, be glad it wasn't a paw! Sympathetic as all heck aren't I?

I am going to see if I can get some barn cat pics today.

Using wet wipes will clear out loose hair, but cat food high in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids really help cut down on the shedding because they get a stronger coat. It won't stop shedding, but it will cut down on it a bit. Tuna and Salmon are probably the highest in both acids, but you can find supplements at PetSmart you can pour on other food.

If his fur is so thin a regular cat brush won't pick up the hair, get a cheap people hairbrush with stiff bristles. This is going to sound terrible, but check out the "ethnic" section of the hair aisle at your local pharmacy - many brushes specialized for particular races do a bang up job on a cat.


I've got a boar-bristle hairbrush that I use on the Wimsicle-boy. His fur is short, but he's got an amazingly thick coat.
I dampen the brush down with lavender water before brushing him...brush seems to pick up more loose fur when damp, and Wimsey really enjoys the lavender scent.

Srsly...he stretches out, purrs (and purrs, and purrs), and gets this look of absolute BLISS on his face. He's good for at least 10 minutes of brushing this way, depending on his mood.
It seems to pull a lot of dirt out his coat as well; he gets the 'sparkly', glistening look he has after a bath.

/ However...can brush him for 20 minutes and he STILL sheds if petted immediately afterward.
// He sheds all the rest of the time too...

Shedding is major part of Feline Job Description, even bigger than Other Duties As Chosen (never As Assigned, of course not).
Trolls would come even if we set bear traps out. Best choice: ignore 'em when possible.

It wasn't all that stable at first but we kept adding supports until we could hang on it without it wobbling. I figure is Mr YGSS and myself could hang off it, surely the kittens could. We made it out of scraps that were in the garage so it didn't cost anything. The kids were climbing it as we were carrying it up the stairs so by the time we got it in the room all 3 of them were on it somewhere. It has been a big hit.

I will cut the grass fully Sunday.. the 'maze' cut won't show when I am finished, as the grass will have had two days to grow more.... all the weed-whacking will happen tomorrow...
Definitely sad about the kittens.. was the first litter for Stretch, and actually the first for me also.. got rather grossed out, but had to try to help.....all the kittens I have had were already weaned....

Lsherm: yobbery: We may have to trim that fluffy Biscuit butt. He continues to cough up the largest hairballs I've seen. His hair is real fine and silky...it's long but so silky I can't imagine it ever matting. Brushing him with a slicker yields little hair, yet he somehow is managing to get large amounts of it down his gullet.

Spoke with the vet about it yesterday and he thinks a trimming might be in order. We've been giving him hairball remedy but I'm worried he's going to get another impacted hairball.

Any suggestions are welcome. I have not found a brush that seems to work on this guy.

Using wet wipes will clear out loose hair, but cat food high in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids really help cut down on the shedding because they get a stronger coat. It won't stop shedding, but it will cut down on it a bit. Tuna and Salmon are probably the highest in both acids, but you can find supplements at PetSmart you can pour on other food.

If his fur is so thin a regular cat brush won't pick up the hair, get a cheap people hairbrush with stiff bristles. This is going to sound terrible, but check out the "ethnic" section of the hair aisle at your local pharmacy - many brushes specialized for particular races do a bang up job on a cat.


I had a cat one time with a coat like that, I actually used one of those baby combs you get in the grooming kits (the ones with like the clippers, baby brush, baby comb, and a snot sucker or something like that) and it worked really well. You might be able to just buy the comb if you're by a BabiesRUs but I lived in BFE at the time and had to take what I could get.

Probably just the flu or something going around. Mom says the office has been busy with people sick with some type of bug. Didn't have the pukes or anything like that, it was just like the proverbial Mack truck running you over, you just hurt so bad. Then the energy motivation is nada, I think the most I moved was to feed the cats twice yesterday (no peace otherwise). Little better today, went to work. I live in cubicle land plus I took Monday off so I didn't want to be gone 3 days in a row when we're getting the year end fiscal push. Still hurt but now I think I might be down to a quad cab hitting me instead of Semi.

No, I don't have problems with gifs at all, but I have had some issues from time to time with images from imgur. Sometimes I can see them, sometimes I can't. No problems with photobucket & the like though. Like I said, it's likely my old, cranky PC's fault.

Refreshing does nothing & I prefer not to use IE at all.

Dayle and I have been walking and taking the CART bus to get her to Early Head Start school. Long walks for little legs, but she has been doing GREAT! I got her a cheap Spongebob backpack to carry an extra diaper, sippy cup and a few other things herself. That way, hubby can take the car a few days a week and save on gas money. We had to the first two days of her school because he had workshops and had to have the car.

Great news, I found out that I will be getting my Advair breathing medicine free for a year. They will mail it to the house once every 90 days.

ygss, we still have a tree like yours but it's in pieces in the basement after the joints stripped out. It's been down so long the Coonies don't seem to miss it any more. It was only up for maybe 3 yrs -- GangOf5 had their chances at it when they were still little. Something that needs to go when the dead microwave does, with the Sperrmull (we'll have to call for a spl pick-up & pay a little extra). Unfortunately bought ours, didn't have that much extra wood or carpet to build as you say you 2 did.

You might recall that I asked this same question a few months ago. I regret that I have still not hit upon a perfect solution, but based on the responses I received, I would definitely think twice before getting a furminator (most of the feedback I got on that was rather negative). I second the suggestion of trying certain "ethnic" brushes/combs. If you have a dollar store nearby, check there first - I have gone through a bunch of different ones for a fraction of the regular cost and do not feel bad tossing them if they prove ineffective (you can always invest in a better quality one if you find one that works).

Also, I forget who emailed me the suggestion of wearing plain rubber (not latex) cleaning gloves (again, available at the dollar store) while petting Dragon - and that actually gets a ton of hair off. It helps if the glove is slightly moist. Good luck, and let me know if you come up an answer!

He's sand colored, so call him Tusken, after the Tusken Raiders (the Sand People) in Star Wars.

Geeky as hell, but it's a cool name for a cat and it has some significance to his coloring as well.

So, seeing as how the insanity that is my life knows no bounds, I went into the kids' room this morning to take care of Sage and Rosemary the bearded dragons, and I thought the cage was full of droppings, but no, I could never get that lucky.

sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.netView Full Size


Seventeen wonderful additions to the Blessed family. So of course I had to run out and get an incubator for them. In approximately 3 months, we'll see how many of them survived. I'm not going to hold my breath and say all 17, but I'll be happy if half of them make it. And no, we are not keeping them. I talked to the daughter this morning and she's going nuts about it. She wasn't too thrilled when I told her she was a grandmother at age 13 though.

sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.netView Full Size


This is the new kitty that showed up last night. I didn't get a chance to get out today and see if he was chipped because of the beardie drama, which made me late to the hospital this morning. Wife is still OK, but still not much on the conversation front. We're hoping for more tomorrow, but it's just going to be a slow process. Anyway, after talking with the kids, we're going to have a contest. Here are four names we've come up with: Kippers, Haggis, Hoisin, and Yakisoba. The kids thought it would be funny to let the Caturday people pick the name. They always look in on Saturday, and they want to see what everyone thinks. So by 5 PM tomorrow, I'm going to tally up the votes, and whichever name has the most, that will be the new kitty's name. So come on all you Caturday people, get out the vote, and don't let little black kitty go nameless. Also, thank you all again for the well wishes and prayers for Mrs. BBBB. They are appreciated greatly.

My married-into ethnicity surges to the fore when I say either Kippers or Haggis would be good for the new far-side-of-the-moon arrival. He & Pierogi seem to get along, which could be good, unless the fur flew right after BBBB took that pic. Beardie eggs & an incubator, oh boy. Never does stop, does it. All I can say for that is Goody Luck, & of course best wishes to Mrs BBBB for her recovery, ASAP as possible!

Another commercial threadjack, fairly recent if memory can serve at all: The Breast Cancer site, one of the 7 Greater Good Network sites (rather than Animal Rescue which may also offer it), had this up not all that long ago. Don't recall a price. It as some of the other ones may come in 2 sizes.  As there are 12 pix, may be obvious it's a calendar.

Put in a plug too for imgur because when That Place I Used To Use (don't even remember now what it's called) stopped letting me re-size, I Sought Another. Tried various ones I'd seen folk use for here, which is what finally brought me to imgur. Not least, the fact that it's EZ! I need EZ! Previous Place was fairly so, but not after the resident maniacs started making the technical changes that I declined to cope with.

News from earlier eve e-mail I just now read:
Just minutes ago (this posted just after 5:30PM EDT) the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service formally proposed to protect 838,232 acres as "critical habitat" for endangered jaguars in southern Arizona and New Mexico -- an area larger than the state of Rhode Island.
When finalized in the next year, and joined with a developing federal recovery plan, the decision will ensure jaguars return to the wild mountains and deserts of the American Southwest.

That sounds like quite good news for the jaguars!

This is the new kitty that showed up last night. I didn't get a chance to get out today and see if he was chipped because of the beardie drama, which made me late to the hospital this morning. Wife is still OK, but still not much on the conversation front. We're hoping for more tomorrow, but it's just going to be a slow process. Anyway, after talking with the kids, we're going to have a contest. Here are four names we've come up with: Kippers, Haggis, Hoisin, and Yakisoba. The kids thought it would be funny to let the Caturday people pick the name. They always look in on Saturday, and they want to see what everyone thinks. So by 5 PM tomorrow, I'm going to tally up the votes, and whichever name has the most, that will be the new kitty's name. So come on all you Caturday people, get out the vote, and don't let little black kitty go nameless. Also, thank you all again for the well wishes and prayers for Mrs. BBBB. They are appreciated greatly.

Are you giving Rosemary (or is it Sage) some Calcium suppliments? Egg laying can deplete calcium levels in mommas.


Rosemary gets calcium dust with her crickets, roaches, and greens. She looks emaciated, but she is eating.

Good. If momma is healthy, the babies are more likely to be healthy, if any hatch. I heard that reptiles can develop bone problems if their bodies have to choose between good bones and good egg shells. I'm glad she won't have that issue.

So far I have had the following suggestions:
- Yeti

- Sandman
- Monroe
- Edsel (because he has a VERY loud purr for his size)

?????? on others


Back in the '90,s, I found an abandoned kitten.. got her checked out by my vet.. dirty but healthy.. would purr so loud she buzzed, and would bomb around the house at about mach 2.. hence the name 'buzzbomb'.. fit her perfectly....

So far the only images I can't see are the ones you posted. All others in the thread are visible.

Ewwww, I'm so sorry to hear that. I like imgur because it's so simple and fast to post images on FARK.
I would suggest you might try Kaspersky Internet security as they offer free 30 day trial versions. Some of the less popular anti-virus software has filtering that can be real finicky and that might be happening to you.

Good luck 

PS Kaspersky can be had for cheap if you shop around. $20 etc or there abouts.

Thanks, but I think I'll stick with Avast. It's never let me down, so I'm reluctant to switch to another av.


Fwiw, I know I probably can't convince you, but KIS has always rated as one of the best in reviews etc.

Thank you.

akimbotoo: Timid Goddess: Dayle and I have been walking and taking the CART bus to get her to Early Head Start school. Long walks for little legs, but she has been doing GREAT! I got her a cheap Spongebob backpack to carry an extra diaper, sippy cup and a few other things herself. That way, hubby can take the car a few days a week and save on gas money. We had to the first two days of her school because he had workshops and had to have the car.

Great news, I found out that I will be getting my Advair breathing medicine free for a year. They will mail it to the house once every 90 days.

That's because that wasn't really a cat, it was some kind of shape shifting alien. Sometimes it was a cat, other times it was a woman. When it was a cat it was carried around by the leader of the group that the Enterprise ran into that week, it was implied that she was the leader's lover when she was in the shape of the woman. I can't remember much more about that episode, that was a long time ago, and I haven't caught any episodes of ST-TOS in a long time.

I've got some questions about chipping cats. We've got 3 young indoor cats who are all curious about going out. None of them would have a clue about where we live if they did get out, so we need some way to get them back if they do sneak past us. Right now they've got collars with their names and our phone # embroidered on them, but we're considering chipping them (and the one indoor/outdoor cat too, but he can find his way home now).

So the questions are:
1) How invasive is this? I've heard it's just an injection, is that right?
2) How much does it bother a cat? Will they scratch at the spot?
3) How much does this usually run?

Thanks in advance for the help I know I'll get here!

Venus is who that lovely cat with the clearly defined face sides & off eyes is, that in2it picked up her pix from LoveMeow #139 that just arove today. Where's The Great Porn Dragon with his endless supply of genetic info when it'd be useful? Mayhap he'll turn up later, for yellowcat's benefit. Too, cretinbob, she appears to have a happy home from what was in LM#139. There's likely to be much drooling & slavering at her loveliness & not-usual appearance, not just here. I forget what LM's distrib is, but it's big.
I'll also say for daRog's benefit (mention a name for pic credit & outta the woodwork they come, or summat) that "yocks" is almost as old as 1) dirt or 2) the hills. Shortspeak for "years & years" in some circles. I've used the word for decades.

True those are all outboard motor names, but Evinrude is much more distinctive IMHO.

All mine are chipped. I never felt a thing. ;-p

It's not invasive at all. The chip is about the size of a small grain of rice. It's injected using a large bore needle and is just like any other vaccine. You can tell that the cat notices some discomfort during insertion, but none of mine have never done more than momentarily flinch. That's was it...no scratching or anything afterward. Like nothing ever happened.

I don't remember the cost, but I don't believe it was expensive. It's well worth every penny.

1 - yes it is an injection but its a big needle, The chip iteself is about the size of a grain of rice. They're usually chipped when they're under for something but I've had some of mine chipped when they went in for their yearly physical and vaccines.

2 - I've never seen mine bother it. It just floats inbetween the skin and muscle between the shoulder blades (or that vicinity).

3 - Cost depends on where you get it done at. I've seen vets charge $50-$60 for it. If you have a local human society or rescue, they often do it cheaper. Our local society has a vet clinic once/week and they charged I think $15 or $20 and it included the first year fee for Home Again (that's the brand they use, but there's also Petwatch which my rescue agency uses). If you go with something like Home Again, there is a yearly fee of $15 where you get more assistance if kitty becomes lost (they send out emails to other owners in their system in your area, send posters to local vets, etc). You don't have to pay this fee as your information will always be in the system. However, they don't help you search for kitty, they just keep the database so if kitty is found and scanned, your info can be located.

posting at the beginning before i go back and scroll through. so, we moved. it sucked. the new place is a bit tiny and has NO extra storage, there's only a small closet in the living room and teeny little cabinets that are all the way up at the ceiling. i am by no means short but i feel i need a step stool to reach my plates. on the positive side i have my two fur-boys back. but i had to send my 12 year old real boy on a plane alone to get him back to daddy who now lives in SC. once or twice on wednesday after he had left i wanted to speak to him and looked up only to remember he was gone :(
uploading pics onto photobucket to post when i get a chance.
