akimbotoo: It really is so hard when they leave. The whole energy in the house changes. It's funny, but remembering the lovely little different things they did seems to help ease the pain. ((((((hugs)))))


Heh, she did like to do this thing where she'd wait until the house was real quiet, sit down, and yowl as loud as she could. Never did find out why she did it, every time I went and found her after I heard her she'd just run off and hide somewhere.

professional_vampire: I'm so sorry for your loss. *hug*


Thank you. This is the first time we've lost a cat in...almost 15 years I think. I barley remember, I was 10 at the time...

Two months no cigs for me tomorrow, though I still struggle. Used the patch which helped with some withdrawals. I'm proud of everyone who tries to quit, it's such a hard thing to do. Only those who have been down this path can really understand how hard it is. Keep at it and don't give up!!

I was always dreading when I would add a comment to this thread. I was always a lurker, reading the stories and laughing at the pics.

But.

I lost one of my oldest companions today. I had to put Timmy (yes say it like on South Park), my 10 year old friend to sleep. He was diagnosed with lymphoma a few weeks back. At that point I thought he simply had a UTI, as he was doing his usual "Grumpy and peeing wherever I want" attitude. Turns out nope. Cancer. At that point he had not eaten in a week (was down to 12 pounds from 15, who knows how long he had been under feeding himself). 2 weeks later he was down to 9 pounds. Today marked the 5th week of not eating or drinking (I was "watering" my cat as I affectionately called the sub-cue injections I had to give him), and he started walking funny. Like his back legs were only 80% stable. Not bad, just noticeable. It was at this point that I finally realized he was not going to get better. There was nothing more I could do, and he was not happy. So I had to put my friend of 10 years, the companion that got me through relationship after relationship (and through a marriage too) to sleep.

Well enough of my sad story. All you needed to know was I lost my friend, and I am sad. SO, I am going to post a couple of my favorite memories of him here, and a picture.

Story 1) At the time I was dating another animal lover, and together we bought our three animals (well I guess she bought them, I just loved them). 2 cats and 1 dog. All crazy in their own rights. So we took these 3 animals to an enclosed outside space. Just a large fenced in yard essentially. We let them all loose. Now the dog was fine, he was trapped not going anywhere. But the 2 cats on the other hand. Well did you know cats can jump? Amazing right?! So we had to devise a method to keep the cats inside the fenced in area. Me, being the smrt person I am decided that if I attached a big stick to the cats leashes (yes, our cats were leash cats) it would throw off there balance enough where they could not jump the fence. Well on this I was spot on. The cats could not figure out how to jump with this 1 pound weight on their back.

Guess who likes sticks? Dogs. Amazing right?!

So the dog (Jacob, a Boston Terrier) sees this stick roaming around the yard. So he tears after it, grabs it and runs away with it.... And Timmy, the attached cat. By the time we got the cat back the entire back of him was stained green from the grass.

I am smrt.

Story 2) So did I mention these animals were not mine? I just loved them? Well that became very apparent when that relationship fell through. Now I had no animals. I was sad. Now this part is partly going to be played from how my head sees these things occurring. But still. I am right cause I am smrt.

When I lost the animals, they all moved to Canada (the evil uninhabitable place near Iraq, and North Korea I think). At this time they were living in some form of dorm environment (she was going to vet school and in Canada vet school people live in communals or something) And Timmy was unhappy (My head says he missed me) and decided that certain people on the floor were his enemies. They were the target of his feeling of lost (cause he missed me!). So he, in his infinite cat logic decided that he was going to poop in front of their doors every day. Yes. Every day. So Timmy got kicked out of this communal hippy vet thingy. And in her infinite wisdom, my Ex realized that Timmy missed me. She she drove Timmy back to my parents house (Chicago-ish) and I got my cat back! He never pooped in front of another door again! See he really did miss me!!!

Timmy was a handsome fellow. And the memories made me giggle, which my boy (Felix) had to investigate. He sends some gentle purrs and nuzzles your way. {{hugs}}

At vy ft of pg 7, type here bcs I can.
Scruffinator, Missy rather resembled Cheeky who we adopted in W Berlin from a KingsOwnScottishBorderers family whose time there was up, as regiment was being posted to N Ireland. Yes, that was a lifetime ago, or several! Berlin was the last remaining city still occupied from WW2 until the Wall finally came down. We left there, with Cheeky & Gretl who'd lived with a US service family, in 1978. US, French & Her Majesty Elizabeth II's forces (in more frequent rotation than US) served as occupiers when W Berlin was still The Outpost Of Freedom 110 Mi Behind The Iron Curtain Surrounded By The Godless Commie Hordes. Had to say all that in single breath, still can.
Missy seems a somewhat typical tabby & white pattern, none the less attractive for being frequent. We did second the motion, back in the day.

Also comment that 14yr old lad Tom Jose VU3TMO has achieved ARRL Diamond DXCC. (yes another bloody ham radio tale!) He made contact with 100 different nations outside his own in this the 75th anniv year of DXCC (Foreign Contacts Century Club). Tom lives in Hyderabad, India; belongs to Radio Inst of America whatever that is, also to Dayton OH Amateur Radio Club. I'm on one of the DARA reflectors due to newsltr activities, also Just In Case of anncts such as this. Sent Tom my personal both conga-rats (ZeroExponent's .gif) & conga-cats (mine).
This program began 1st of 2012; retired guy in our local club who's moved to Jax FL had his in 6 wks. But then he did hardly anything else.

ferfer72: Hi guys! I know I have been demoted to "that girl who used to post a bunch of LOLs". Sorry. I work most Saturdays now.

In the meantime, I need an opinion from all of you shelter-savvy peeps:

My auditorium will soon be doing a play that traditionally has a few kittens in it. I was thinking it might be cool to feature some kittens from a local shelter and do some sort of "sponsor a kitten adoption" thing to find homes for the kittens we use. Suggestions? Reasons why this is a stupid idea?


The zoo here does something like this. They adopt dogs and cats from local rescues and train them for shows at the zoo. While the cats and dogs are performing, they talk about adoptions and the rescues they work with. We've had several of our kitties adopted by them :)

Scruffinator: Well, my eldest cat passed away at 6:30 this morning. She was fine, as far as any of us could tell, up until yesterday. Then she just kinda started laying around more than normal, and skipped dinner. Then when I got up this morning she seemed to be having trouble breathing, and wouldn't budge from where she was at. By the time we located an e-vet that was open(downside of living in the middle of nowhere) she had passed on. She was about 17 years old.

For some damn reason, I can't find a single picture of her except on my phone, and I don't have a cord to connect it to my PC. Blarg.

Warning: quitting smoking story ahead.

I was able to quit after many failed tries. My boss at the time gave me the secret. You give up one cigarette at a time starting with the usual first one of the day. In my case it was right after breakfast with my cup of tea.
You don't light up then and you wait as long as possible before having one. For the rest of the day smoke as usual. Everyday from then on postpone lighting up. When I had eliminated the after supper one, I just stopped.
Every one is different. I'm oral and chewed gum, toothpicks or sucked on hard candy to keep from eating. My husband uses cigs to sooth his nerves and without them he is a monster. Two packs a day for 50 years and no lung problems.

Thank you for stopping Timmy's suffering. It is so hard to let them go, but you did the right thing. It's gonna hurt for a long time, but all the good memories will help. This is a good first step! We appreciate the handsome photo!

He really did love you! Little Pooper was your cat and made sure he figured out how to get back to you! /CSB!!

I have been sick and in bed the last two days. Both household cats are making sure that I am sat on, nose bumped to the extent that I am not allowed sleep. We also apparently have a disagreement over who owns the pillow. Apparently during the day Panther-explorer claims it as his own and requires my head to be removed from it.
