vudutek, best Caturday luck on dtr's wedding tomorrow.
Member of my local amateur radio club announced in an e-mail to the the club reflector, just seen by moi, that we placed 30th of 326 in our cat-egory at Field Day (always last wkend in June) this yr.
Also says the Field Day Chair, who's also hosting Single Sideband Sweepstakes Nov 17-19, has apparently learnt how to herd cats. He & spouse had single Feline Overlord last I heard.
Make-up's on for sing, now just need to dress & lunch early. Move Afoot to Dine Early after we sing.

Sneaking in while on a break from homework...

Love celebrating Christmas, though it's a secular holiday for me. Ultra love celebrating halloween: used to dress up and participate in haunted houses while I still lived states side. Unfortunately, they don't celebrate it over here :(

This will be the first year in the new house (move in first week of December) and I'm planning a few Christmasy decorations :D

Diogenes: Matticus: Meet Steve McQueen, my 9 month old Savannah 

[i46.tinypic.com image 850x508]

Oh, man. I want one so badly! So pretty. How's the personality?

Gotta wait for my poor Cydney to give up the ghost. Bad days are outnumbering the good. But she's not in pain so we take it one day at a time.


He's the sweetest boy. Very curious and playful. Very affectionate. Loves people and will curl up next to anyone. If I get after him for doing something bad, he'll go in the other room and cry until I call him over and forgive him. He has two littly w00t monkeys that, in his mind, have to be together. If I put them in different places in the house, he'll have them together somewhere else by the time I get home.

vudutek: G'morning evybuddy. Crunch time in vuduland. Daughter is getting married tomorrow! What an amazing combination of excited and freaked out at the same time :-)


Been there, done that - no matter what 'goes wrong' remember that you are the only one who knows what 'should' have happened. Your guests won't have a clue. My daughter planned an outdoor wedding - we had tornado warnings and violent thunderstorms all day. It still worked out beautifully. Take a deep breath and enjoy the day - it only happens once :-)

Shill post coming up -

My son, Jamie, is HFA (High-Functioning Autism), and was diagnosed @ age 3 as 'severely' autistic. At the time, we were told that he wouldn't go to school, wouldn't ride a bike, woudn't hold normal conversations, yadda, yadda, yadda. Well, at 17, he's turned out to be quite the amazing young man. He's a junior in HS, a straight-A student, not only rides a bike, but drives (better than his mother) has completed 3 century (100-mile+) bike rides, and is about the most social kid you'll run in to. He's also a Life Scout, working on his Eagle project, which is to raise awareness, collect supplies and raise donations for the Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART), a 501 (c) (3) no-kill animal rescue / support group. Jamie's been the one who's picked out all our current rescues (two cats and a dog), and he wants to give back by helping HART.

This is Jamie:

farm9.staticflickr.comfarm9.staticflickr.comfarm9.staticflickr.comfarm9.staticflickr.comfarm9.staticflickr.com

These are our current rescued resident / owners Molly, Tobe and Daisy. Daisy doesn't quite count as a real dog, so she is treading (ever so lightly) on Caturday turf.

farm8.staticflickr.comfarm8.staticflickr.comfarm8.staticflickr.comfarm8.staticflickr.comfarm9.staticflickr.com

....and here are some of the current kitties at HART that are looking for homes:

www.hart90.orgwww.hart90.orgwww.hart90.orgwww.hart90.orgwww.hart90.orgwww.hart90.orgwww.hart90.orgwww.hart90.org

Jamie's doing a local supply drive for the Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART), but I also wanted to reach out to FARK to challenge them to help, too. If you'd like to help, please consider donating to HART.

You can donate via PayPal or JustGive.org. I know there are lots of deserving people and organizations, but if you'd consider donating to HART, Jamie and HART's cats and dogs would very much appreciate it.

If you donate, thank you very much - make sure that you tag the donation as 'Jamie Eagle Project' in the 'name' or 'instructions for HART (PayPal), so we can see how much of a difference FARK can make....

If you can't donate, thank you for readling all the way through this post- and thanks for all you do for your kitties.

laulaja: diogenes, coming condolences for Cydney. Pls love her/him AMAP (As Much As Possible) while you still can.


It's all I can do. It's especially hard because there's nothing that clearly says "it's time to make that horrible decision." The vet has been very supportive. But I appreciate it! She's very special to me.

Matticus: He's the sweetest boy. Very curious and playful. Very affectionate. Loves people and will curl up next to anyone. If I get after him for doing something bad, he'll go in the other room and cry until I call him over and forgive him. He has two littly w00t monkeys that, in his mind, have to be together.

I may have to take the plunge when it's time. That sounds so sweet! And smart. Like a dog-cat.

They do sound like amazing cats. I have two Bengals and an ex-feral fluffy cat, and all 3 fetch! The Bengal boys will drop the ball 2 feet to 8 feet away and expect you to get up and grab it to throw it for them! The ex-feral fluffy girl will bring the ball and drop it in your hand!

I didn't want a cat. I rescued Cyd from the wild when I first moved to Orlando. I was waiting to get settled and get a dog. I always had big dogs. Never a cat. So when I was raising Cydney I treated her like a dog. She fetches, too. The best are the plastic rings (must be unbroken) from jars like sunflower seeds. I roll them, she grabs them, and brings them back to do again.

The nearest Gremie comes to acting like a dog is when he is not where I can see him. He will come when he's called. I yell "Gremie,Gremie,Gremie," and he will come to where ever I am. It must be yelled 3 times or he won't show up. Once he came running up from the basement covered in cobwebs with a look on his face like "this better be important".

Snuffycat showing me how concerned he is that a tree is resting on the house. He's going to be pissed next spring, that tree was part of Squirrel Route 1. They'd jump from our roof to a branch right outside our kitchen window, then go from there to the neighbor's fence


Neighbor's tree, then? Have it charged with trespassing. :-D

Glad that you and the other East Coasters made it through.

Hello everybodeee!

 ^-^
='.'=

Happy Hatching Anniversary to all you Caturdayers who are celebrating your day...and may it indeed be a celebration!

yellowcat: The Florida Caturday contingent hopes all who were in Sandy's way are ok. Glad for the update on lajimi and sherpa. Hurricanes are humbling experiences that's for sure. Once you've gone thru one, you don't forget.


Had a tornado boogie through here a couple years ago...
I didn't know it was a tornado until later (touchdown about 1.5 miles from my house!); just thought that the mother, father and family reunion of all hailstorms was passing through.
Vaguely heard the tornado siren but didn't recognize what it was...just felt really bad for any rescue workers who were out in that maelstrom.
Stood stunned at my front door and watched...the violence was incredible.
Went out after everything had calmed down and the air smelled just...incredible. Sweet, fresh, clean...with the scent released from all the fallen leaves and broken branches...this was the air that's described in so many books as 'never breathed before'.

spinach gunk: Oh my goodness, look who Buddy and I found in the cherry tree just now!
Two fuzzy little babby raccoons!!!
When they heard us coming they ran way up high into the tree. But not too far up for the camera flash.
A weird time of year for babies... but there they were.

This one was very chatty, wouldn't stop chirrupping away to his brother, I think he felt very scared.
Here is the second one. This is looking directly straight up overhead! Couldn't take his eyes off me. He was petrified. But SO CUTE.

[Luckily Buddy couldn't see them, only smell them, otherwise there would have been some serious neighbour-waking barking! And terrified baby raccoons.

They were OK. Their mama wasn't far away. We went back inside before she could make our acquaintance though.

Whew! That was fun. OK I can go to bed now. :)


When I lived in Oregon there was a family of raccoons (Mama and 3 babies) would come sniffing around my back porch. The babies would take food from my hand with their tiny little warm clever fingers. Mama would stand back, glaring and growling...letting me know that if I even THOUGHT about trying to touch or pet one of the little ones she'd rip me a new one...or several. She did accept a raw egg from me when I (very gently) rolled it to her however...
Does it make sense that I felt honored, being allowed to interact with WILD animals like this?

Thank you - I've already done one FarkUs post, and asked the modmins what the policy / practice is for keeping it visible. They gave the advice to post again, so I've posted here, and will do another FarkUS post after the weekend.....I think it's for a good cause, and while I've already gotten some flak for it being related to Scouting, it's for HART, and Jamie would do something to help them even if he was doing it just on his own.

(I think it's at least as noble as Give Joe the Bird, but that's just my opinion).

Thanks again. It's appreciated.

Yeah, definitely needs re-submitting to the FarkUs tab. Caturday folks are good people, but overall we're a fairly small percentage of farkers. FarkUs will give you more visibility.
 
2012-11-02 04:06:06 PM  
Should I wait for Caturday to go Green, and re-submit Sunday, or just go ahead and re-submit? (getting the visibility is great, but I hate to keep beating people over the head with hit).

Hi Everyone! Happy Birthday to Lilyspad!!
I'm glad to hear that our caturday family seems to be mostly ok from the storms. It gives me a Happy.

Cool Story Sis...
Now you all have to remember that I am old. Its been MANY years since I have had to deal with little kids. I took it upon myself to help out my husbands nephew by watching his kids for him today. The regular babysitter had an emergency. Do any of you know what a handful a 4 yr old, a 2 yr old, and a 1yr old are? I don't think I got to sit for 10 minutes all day. The 1 yr old learned how to walk 2 days ago, so its a whole new world for her. It was a loooooong 6 hours. I think I have watched more Dora, Mickey Mouse Club, and Diego than I have watched any other show in my life. Now don't get me wrong. I didn't mind helping out in an emergency, but damn, I'm too old for this. And the diapers.. the POOPY diapers. Ugggg. Anyway just wanted to let you all know that even though I am old, I still got a little ambition left in me. Although..this is how I feel right now....

Eli the Bitey will come when you whistle for him. My other cats used to do this as well. All I did to "train" him was to whistle when I gave him his food. Always...and then when he'd come when called at other times I would give him a treat..and say, "Treat?" And then toss it across the floor..wtch him chase after it on the wood floor...skid...grab treat/miss treat depending on the velocity...and then watch him eat it with relish! And no not that kind...:)
 
2012-11-02 05:08:27 PM  
Off topic...but about 20 mins after I came home I heard a huge boom! and then what sounded like a load of pots and pans falling off the back of a truck..I went to the front window and saw that the telephone pole was down in front of the house and it was twined around a biiig semi rig's back end...it pulled my pole and the pole up the street down. My son came walking down the street about 5 mins after this happened. If he had not been late, it would have happened right in front of him! Eeeeek!

Oh yeah, and I had just let Eli out to go potty...I wonder when he'll get over his fright and come home!
