Wilkommmen zu Hause to Mrs BBBB! reckon now it's safe to send card that was meant to be sent before. Oh Well, later enjoyment, after the deluge.
lefttefticle, you mean you didn't know tabby stripes like ginger colouration was contagious?
in2it, Fang Q for the vid. Have seen, tho didn't realise before going there how loooong it was.
Now a double commercial threadjack:
First, daRog's SOON pic a ways down page 8 (where I now type, which this won't post to). LOLmart now offers a SOON T, dark with dark cat & light mouse, if time's not up yet.
Second, these:

embiggened some for better visibility. Saw doggie one on morning rounds of Greater GoodNetwork to click the buttons of all 8 member sites to give without shelling out (daily habit of 2 rounds). Promoed as new item so won't be on sale for quite a while if ever. $20 + s&h, unless you buy enough to get free s&h (doubt any of those are on right now but they do emerge periodically).
Plus a Link to list of critters you may not have known were that endangered. On Care2, predictably.

The Ice Queen: domari: sherpa18: [i415.photobucket.com image 640x448]

Good evening my dear friends ... I have a little bit of good news, and some bad news. Bad news first - it seems that all the additional tests have confirmed the fact that my beloved Dragon is indeed in late stage renal failure. His BUN, creatinine, and phosphorus levels are all extremely elevated, in fact some are almost off the charts. :o(

On the bright side, he seems to be holding his own, his appetite is great and he is still acting quite normal (we just spent 15 minutes playing chase with a baggie tie) ... but I am beginning to see a marked increase in thirst and urination, as well as small periods of what I can only describe as restlessness (which I assume means he is uncomfortable for some reason) in just the last few days.

However, his thyroid levels came back just about normal, which either means his medication is working, or could be a side effect of the CRF. We are slowly weaning him off the meds at this point.

I have already begun to phase in the recommended k/d diet with mixed results. Dry food (mixed 50/50 with his regular stuff to start with) is still up in the air - I have seen him nibbling at it once or twice, he is obviously not thrilled, but I have hopes he will get used to it.

The wet food on the other hand is a total failure as far as I am concerned. It went over about as well as a lead balloon - and don't get me wrong, I really don't blame him - please note that while I really have no interest in eating cat food, some it actually smells good (or at least similar to what it purports to be) - but the k/d stuff has a nasty smell and a rather weird texture ...

I will be starting him on Azodyl in a couple of days (I elected to wait to get a special order of "small capsules" hoping that they will be easier for him to swallow (and for me to administer). Then we will go back in about 5 weeks for yet more tests, and depending on the results, we will add Epakitin ...


I'll second the Royal Canin food.. He will most likely reject the wet version but the dry diet is consistant. Juki loves the SO33 Rx food.. If I opened a 6 lbs. bag he would find a way to eat the whole thing in a day (and the hork up hairballs and get dandruff such that he looks covered in snow.) Still it's the Rx food I'd trust.

Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy: House cleaned and everything ready for the wife to show up in about half an hour. Sunny and 70 today outside, so I need to figure out how to build a quick moat around the grill so she doesn't spend her whole day outside screwing around with that thing. Other than that, everything so far this weekend has gone well and hoping to finally be done with the downstairs and our bedroom by tonight. Happy Sunday everyone.


Hope the Homecoming is as nice as it sounds like it will be.

Sorry for the confusion. She's just here for a few hours today like last weekend. There are still some things she has to accomplish before she can be fully discharged, and we're still looking at another two weeks until she should be out, but the physical therapist wants her to be able to do some more things before signing off on her discharge. She's outside being wheeled around the neighborhood right now and I'm putting things together for the BBQ later. She's got a huge smile on her face, which will probably turn into a scowl when she sees that I'm leaving the grill in the grass. But first it will be ferret time, then the cookout.

Awesome. Simply and truly awesome. Glad to see things turning out better! Maybe set her up with a sun umbrella, a fancy drink with a drink umbrella and straw, and have the kids fan her with ostrich plume (or frond) fans while you cook dinner? An exotic vacation in the new back yard ;)

Exotic for her is tea with lemon. She's never been a drinker, so no fun drinks there. We have a car port, so I've set up a table with some things on it for her. She's getting terrorized by the ferrets right now, but loving every minute of it. Au Jus keeps trying to burrow under her butt for some reason while the rest are content to either chew on the wheelchair tires or try and climb all over her. Kittehs are spending some time with her, but more content to just enjoy the open windows and sunshine.

Everytime Eli goes out today in rains within 5 mins!! Poor cat!

Hey, does anyone know if fleas can become resistant to a particular treatment? The reason I ask is that even though Eli gets Revolution once a month..and he is due again soon..he is still itchy twitchy! And he has dander on his back...

The fleas this year are awful, Jack is allergic to fleas and he got them so bad that the poor boy went bald.
Nothing more pitiful looking than a malamute mix with only the hair on his head and the hair on his tail.
Gremie had no problem with fleas. However the vet switched everybody to Advantage and that seemed to work for Jack since he grew his hair back.

Wife is on the way back to the hospital. She did pretty well today. Ferrets were a little overzealous with her and she got a couple of scratches on her legs, but nothing major and they were cleaned quickly. Let her hold the cast iron campfire pie holder and make her own for dessert, but she still wanted to handle the steaks and potatoes. Kittehs spent a little time with her, but were more interested in what was going on outside. Dog just sat under the tree and eyed the steaks. She was pretty tired by the time we loaded her in the van and I'm sure that she was asleep long before she got to the hospital. Now it's time to get everything put away, get the kids settled and ready for school tomorrow, and sit on the couch, drink a little wine and decompress for a couple of hours before calling it a night. Still have to let the little terrorists out here shortly, but hopefully they'll be tired from their conquest of mom. They usually don't play much at night, but we'll see. Have a great night everyone and I'll see you all again tomorrow or next Caturday.

Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy I am glad to hear that the day went well. It must be tremendously hard for you to see your wife in a wheelchair. I know you have to keep your chin up for the kids/wife, but if you ever need to howl at the moon, I am sure there are several ears/eyes available here among the Caturday Family!

Now. The thing I gotta ask..Are the ferrets using their wheelchair bag?? :)

micromedic, that doesn't look like a ComfyConeTM on Carl. Looks plastic & solid, tho shorter than usual.
valnt9 & professional_vampire, many may have been at dinner or watching only netwk news that was on. Know we were.
BBBB, glad to hear today's visit went well. Will time card's leaving here to get there at a roughly appropriate time.
Quite sad tale on today's page I tripped over on way here. Woman sent her 8yr old cat for flea bath, vet mistakenly euthanised her. Son found out when he went to collect 1st cat, then bring 2d one. Something even suing for malpractise won't help. Could weep, both for her & the cat sent to the Bridge before her time, but that won't help either.

Both threads do make it interesting. Only bit of challenge, only need to read when see the number's riz.
El Pres of local radio club sent in his column for the Oct newsltr. Always requests me to proofread his copy; today was needed more than usual as he may have been to an Oktoberfest before typing it out. Just said personal alcoholic content was higher than normal. Or coulda been wine with din-din. Matters Not.

Alex is lethargic today, and not eating like normal.

Heading to he emergency vet as soon as my friend gets here.


Sh*t! Please keep us posted!

Bathia_Mapes: Hope Alex is okay.

OlderGuy: Good luck and best wishes..

tigerose: Sending good thoughts your way.

He has a fever. 105.3

It looks like he just has a cold type virus. XRays were fine (he didn't swallow anything dumb, and there was no fluid in his abdomen (like bernard had)). Bloodwork came back for the most part normal. (No bacterial infection). Vet says I just have to make sure he stays hydrated and doesn't stop eating.

I bought a thermometer and Vaseline on the way back (my friend that is a Vet tech recommended it and wil be over on Monday to show me how to use it on him)


Glad to hear Alex is going to be ok. George had something like that too, temp was real high. Had an upper respiratory infection. He was on antibiotics for about 2 weeks but the little ingrate is back to his old self.

As for the thermometer, I hope you bought some gauze pads and Neosporin as well :p
