Why 'allo everbuddy!
Yuppers! I am concious enough and drugged enough to be up so to speak and about on
ye old laptop.
That and I am forcing myself to eat soups. Must have something in this stomach to stave
off the hurlies.

Ah yes, I hear people have heard of my latest "Don't F*** with an alien" adventures.
I am fine I fared much better with this than my health has as a whole lately hahaha.
I am pretty sure getting a good release of pent up alien rage most likely helped a bit
if anything stopped me from getting more than a cracked rib.
HAhahah idiot "humon" didn't get a thing off of me except a severe ass whooping
and extreme embarassment having arrived to seeing me sitting on him pinning him to
the ground hahahahah!!!!! I hear his broken nose might heal up fine and the head
wound will too - but hey when you turn back and punch me in the ribs after I break your
nose for attempting to pick on an already ticked off alien after a round of not so fun labwork,
serves you right for bouncing your head off the sidewalk when I said F*** this and took you
4 to the floor. >;D
This would be the 5th idiot to attempt such deeds and the one who got off the luckiest
hahah.
Wish I had someone who recorded the newspaper hander-out guy who was commentating
the whole thing - he was the funniest part of the whole thing.
Anyone want to make bets said idiot will be stupid enough to be hanging around the same area by the hospital tomorrow when I go? and who wants to bet how fast he'll track it out of there once he spots me? hahahah!
mmmm kittehs!
Mrs CDK - those are some great ones! I don't remember some of them so I've quite been enjoying myself
Micromedic - will poor Carl ever be free of the cone of shame? :3

Managing

How did I manage my day before you came?
How did I know when to wake,
Or when to go to sleep?

How did I ever make the bed,
Without a furry lump in it?

Or fold the laundry,
Turn my back, to find you sleeping there?

How did I insist on privacy
Before you arrived?

A closed door,
No more.

And while I do just fine on my own,
It is so nice to have a purr,

A rub,
A demand for attention.

I understand.
After all, I am just sitting here!

How in heavens name did I
Mark the hours of the day?

Now I know Morning,
Noon, Night.

Oh my precious one,
You speed my Day,

Bracket me with Love.
Fill an Empty Space.

I did not know existed.

Tigerose - nope they never do.
Most of the attempts I've scared the bejeebus out of them so badly and embarassed them they have
never told the cops who handed them their dignity and asses back to them :P
Although my dr caught me with the one before this - he figured it was me cause the idiot was
muttering "but she was so small..." granted that was a couple years ago haha!
Having height and weight really don't factor if all one is seeing is a red haze... funny enough it's only been these "people" who have provoked my epic wrath - thank goodness though I don't like being an angry alien.

I much prefer being a happy and trouble causing alien >;D
 
2012-09-09 07:15:57 PM  
Thank you tigerose for that lovely poem!

Ahhhh... Alien, sigh... I'm afraid the cone of shame is going to be Carl's trademark. I had to show the darkened pictures because the other pictures I took show his new wounds that go from his armpit down his belly. And I have no clue what the cause is.. the poor baby. He is going to the vet tuesday though!
His other spots that are scarred and furrless look GREAT however! : ) Good to know you are ok!

micromedic Sorry to hear that Carl is still unhappy in his own skin. Maybe a T4 and Diff would be in order? Almost has an autoImmune disorder feel to it. I have had really good results with Cortizone cream, applied just before gooshy foods. It has a chance to absorb, and Eli's belleh now has some fur on it! Woot!

Nice to see Faust again, he always reminded me of Merlin (except Merlin had black whiskers). I just looked at the calendar and it seems that Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year, so we would either have to do it the week before or convince the modmins to let us have Caturday start a day earlier than usual :o)

tigerose,
you are absolutely correct! He does indeed have an auto immune disorder and the vet and I are pretty much in agreement that he is allergic to everything... sigh.. cortisone creams have been tried... as well as elebenty billion other treatments. Maalox works well for a temporary fix but the booger is sooooo squirmy!! Glad to hear Eli has the cute belley furs!!
 
2012-09-09 07:42:27 PM

Poor Dude! We might have to conspire to create a more handsome cone than that though..washable covers??

Mrs. CDK It's so good to see the Venerable Faust! If in bittersweet rememberance. I miss him also!

I am thinking boning, sewn into channels, with velcroe fasteners on the side. They could be washed, and they would be light weight. We need Maynerdkitty, or JosMonkeys to sketch a pattern....:)
 
2012-09-09 08:12:48 PM  
micromedic either that or an Elizabethan ruff, that you could tie on...:)

I can just see the commercial " Sir Licksalot recommends Caturday band Ruffs, stylish and comfortable, they keep your fur looking it's best"....

Design Cmte, have just e'd our vet & given her micromedic's e-drs for her info & suggestions. She is Deb McArthur DVM.
I might even be able to do a pattern, if micromedic wd tell me how big Carl is. Should be able to tell from pic, but.
On that note, the interchangeable Bb/A#, I'll git on it & skip pic this time.
 
2012-09-09 08:32:37 PM  
laulaja,
as usual, you are helpful and kind! The cone we use for Carl is a small plastic one that has been cut down just enough to be more comfortable.. I'll find a picture.. Thank YOU!

for spinach gunk, who I didn't offer these to yet on her case of sherpies.
Cake not going to Auction, it broke coming out of bundt pan. Inadequate grease & flour suspected, plus my tendency Never To Bake. Either Plumbicon will eat, or we'll pitch. Don't really know anyone who'd fancy a busted cake for free gratis. 
Need to visit storage area with notebk to list stuff my 2d cuz might wish. Meant to go after Pl ate, but minor medical crisis for me, now solved.

Awww, that's too bad. :-(

But, more cake for you! :-)

I don't know what you use when greasing bundt pans, but I've found that PAM or a similar cooking spray works better than shortening, butter or margarine for that particular type of pan. With the latter you're more likely to miss a spot or two, which ends up with the cake breaking or sticking to the pan.


What she said! I also found the Pam spray with flour in the spray, or the restaurant supply version work wonderfully to prevent sticking.

Just got back from camping, so I have a long way to go to catch up! Caturday is just as lovely late on Sunday afternoon!
 
2012-09-09 08:43:31 PM  
Sherpa - Buwahhhahahahhhha!!!! love it
Micromedic - I was going to mention earlier before I have heard of kittehs and dogs up here who seem to have similar situations to Carl who were chosen to do a trial on having cell transplants done - and they all responded quite well to that.
I wonder if there is an option similar to that down over thar?
Oooo! ooooo!!!! I has a new!!!

I prefer Wilton Cake Release. Since I started using it, I have never had any problems with cakes sticking to the pan.

Tnx micromedic; not a very deep cone, which is good so he can get at his noms & water. What needs to be done is measure the cone he wears & make the fabric one just a little bit bigger. It'll then give enough to keep him off his wounds but also enough to let him feed & water. Maybe 2.5" from collar on very inside to outer edge? 'S about what it looks like to me.
What I drew is only 1/4; on sheet of scratch folded in center.
Phooey!! Pix fixin isn't g\cooperating, wl let me Apply but not Save, so pattern as drawn won't Fetch. boo hisss
Looks like what'd work to draw is a plate etc that's 4.25" from ctr to outer edge. I cut the collar to be 2" from the very ctr, but that's too big for Carl. Maybe try 1.75" from ctr for the collar circle.
If this sounds like engineering in a paper bag, it does quite resemble that.
Anyway, 'ave a go with scratch paper & see what you get.

As his father is 30 lbs and Gremlin is only just over a year old....she is going to have

OK that worked. Notes on pattern are confusing. Collar should be cut tighter for smaller cat like Carl; I was figuring maybe for Ginger who's big. 
I folded full sheet of scratch in half (printed 1 side, other side purr-fectly usable) & used frying pan for circle 1st time; too big. Used coffee cup for collar circle; also too big. Cut, try & punt.
 
2012-09-09 09:11:29 PM  
laulaja,
duly noted and measurements will be forthcoming at some point in time. He'll be coming out of the cone on Tuesday, so a good time to clean, freshen and trace/measure, no? : )

Um, I'm reading all about your cone of shame problems and have to butt in.

Do you know that they actually make fabric cones? If I knew how to post pictures, I'd post of pic of Biscuit in his. It was much more comfortable than the hard plastic ones. I think we actually have a spare on.

Alien, that was moi considering t'rowing out the busted cake. Almost Everyone Knows that I need to stay as far away from sugary calories as possible. Plumbicon doesn't need it either.
Since cake broke exiting bundt pan (didn't use PAM as shoulda) I sure wasn't going to take it to the Dessert Auction to raise $$ for Fourtune Cookies to go to SwAdelinesIntl contest early Oct in Denver.
Dessert Auction didn't raise much $$; scant support from their parishioners, 2d yr running. We should never have to do this again, as eldest mbr of QT now approaches 26 & that's too old for Youth Div.
Gremlin BTW is gorgeous! Even got those good ear tufts!
professional_vampire, tnx for mention of Wilton Cake Release of which I'd never heard. But then I don't bake often any more. Used to bake bread from scratch, but not since Feline Takeover. No place safe for dough to rise with all these Overlords.
