Hi All!

Look like we might have found a new place! Yay! Thankfully it's another house with a finished basement and fireplaces!

The only thing it doesn't have that I would like would be a dishwasher but the kitchen is HUGE so it won't be as big of an issue.

Now to only get these fleas fixed, apparently Hartz flea treatment doesn't work. Boo! We'll have to take them to the vet and get the good stuff.

Well, Cassie is at the vet. Her breathing didn't sound so great again this morning and I'd much rather have her see the regular vet than go see the e-vet over the weekend. They said they were going to do chest x-rays and let me know what they find. I'm worried... I'll let you know what happens.

SnarfVader & vudutek - thank you! I love this community so very much!

Update: Just got a call from the vet. The x-rays showed something, but they're not sure what... so they're taking the x-rays to a specialist tonight. They also did some blood work, gave her a steroid injection and are starting her on antibiotics to get us through the weekend. Preliminary diagnosis is possibly asthma? We don't know...

I hope the antibiotics knock out whatever is wrong with her. Good Luck.

Bathia_Mapes, you right, more coffee fixes almost everything. Also appreciate captain feedback's cup made of coffee beans at vy ft of pg 2.
mousiebelle, best wishes for Cassie. Too bad positive pressure for cats doesn't work well.
'ey SnarfVader. Good to see you once more.

Staying home from work to clean the living room carpet.
Looks like I've got a bumper crop of dog turds to harvest. Really need to find a way to install a doggie door/make the yard somewhat pet *escape-proof.

*There's no such thing as "100% escape-proof", I know. Especially when cats are involved. Geesh! :P

MissFeasance: Bless those firemen who save animals. For anyone who doesn't have one, these are a good thing to have - a sticker for your front door that alerts rescue personnel to having pets in your house. I keep one at every entrance in case, god forbid, there was a fire or something. We got ours for free from the kennel where we take the dog when we need to go out of town.

"Pets inside" stickers


Good idea.

I ordered some.

My kitty, Toshiro, is at the vet as I speak. He started visiting his litterbox CONSTANTLY yesterday, but only pees a tiny bit each time. I suspect either a UTI or an early obstruction that's irritating him. We won't know until he can give a urine sample (of course he went in with a totally empty bladder). Either way, send good thoughts his way!

We're home! Cassie seems to be feeling a lot better with the steroid injection. Hopefully between that and the antibiotic, this weekend will go smoothly. She was a very good girl & they didn't even have to sedate her to get the x-rays taken! She got treats for being soooo good! The specialist will get her x-rays tonight and will let me know Monday what he thinks. Really hoping it's just asthma (treatment is steroid injections?) and NOT her heart, which could cause these symptoms. Partially ruled out because "she's so young", though they said that about Lucy's cancer, too... Granted it's a different vet in a different state. I don't think I will handle it well if it's her heart......

Lars is never happy with Cassie after she sees the vet. Though the vet's office here isn't as smelly, so he doesn't freak out nearly as much and gets over it much more quickly.

MajorGroove: Really hope Toshiro feels better quickly! Cassie went through a bunch of UTIs a while back. So stressful! **Hugs**

And I've been distracted, so I didn't send lots of hugs to James72. It's so hard to let them go :( I was really hoping something was misdiagnosed or something... **Hugs**

mousiebelle,
Hope Cassie is merely experiencing asthma. It looks scary, but can be easily treated with an inhaler (D'Artagnan scared me silly a couple years ago with an asthma attack). They may suggest a pediatric chamber for the inhaler, but those things cost a LOT ($60 two years ago).
A toilet paper roll works just as well...not to mention it is disposable and doesn't have the plastic smell that some cats find upsetting.
Sending good wishes for y'all...

{{{James72}}}...wish I had words of comfort for you.

*****

The weather's turned cold, so the entire clowder is staying home and hangin' out with me.
They take turns being my blanket...Riktor, Wimsey and Raven do OK with sharing available space on my reading or sleeping self but D'Artagnan goes solo.

Wish I knew WHY he doesn't like the other cats; he's Mr. Charisma when there's human company...greeting, purrs, ankle rubs and a polished, poised cattitude that makes visitors feel not only welcome but that they're being there has Made His Day. 

Wimsey is currently 'helping' me read and post...sitting on the mouse pad (thank Bast for a lazer instead of rolly-ball mouse!), STARING at me, and trying to put either his furry white head or gentle loving paw on my hand while I am trying to type.
I feel guilty having to tell him his timing sucks.

I hope all goes well with Cassie.

The last time Lucy came home from the vet Morticia kept glaring at her and trying to attack her. Lucy spent several days under the bed hiding from both Morticia and Juno. Juno eventually joined in but I don't think she really understood why.

Drifting back at last -- just was a story on early eve news re dognapping in CA that luckily turned out well. Little girl got her cute furry brown puppy back. Also, 6 mo old chihuahua somehow fell into sewer while being walked by trucker master at 0dark30AM. Very heavy grate pup may have fallen thru, wide openings. Tactical fire unit called (didn't know there was such thing), winched grate up out of way, lowered one of their own down to successfully snag pup. Rescue accomplished, pup quickly bathed before they got On The Rd Agn.

Doubt spinach gunk will accept blame for bringing this Ago, esp with smoking cessation in progress. But this Link kinda goes with that, is vid on other end that runs :45.
