I_fling_poo: Yay, Caturday!
Getting through the workday, one cup of coffee at a time. Tasty, delicious coffee... :P


Made it thru Mordor. Now working on FRIDAY NIGHT, one glass of bourbon at a time. Tasty, delicious bourbon :)

Hello, everyone! I just got my service back on. Thanks for all of your good thoughts. One of our police dispatchers caught up with me at the command center and told me someone from Kentucky had called and asked about me, I was pretty sure who that was, I don't know too many people in Kentucky. There was minimal damage to Princess Missy Manor, some shingles gone from the roof and a little water in the basement. The Princess and the shed cats are OK. Some of the towns in the Shore Area are just plain GONE! Damage like I've never seen. I've been out with the local volunteers since Sunday night and I'm pooped. I have to say, though, it was GREAT being back in the thick of things again. Once again, thanks for all your good thoughts.

All hail the power of Caturday. I need some creativity and that's not really my strong suit. The local rescue organization I work with is in desperate need of a name change. We're looking for a name that isn't too cute so when we go to the state to lobby for animal issues we'll be taken seriously. We're a no kill shelter and we take in all kinds of animals, cats, dogs, bunnies, birds, etc. Basically, if it needs help we help it. Does anyone have any ideas for a name and a tag line? All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

The Jamie Eagle Project sounds very much worth supporting. It's quite encouraging that a young man with such challenges can do 1) so well & 2) so much good.
xanadian, sing-cere condolences on loss of Missy. What a truly lovely girl!
TheIceQueen, sorry for your putting a foot wrong. Hope that'll get better, & that it doesn't hurt too much.
ygss, what's the rescue org needs the name change called now? Maybe if we knew what inanity (if so) was trying to be escaped we might have better ideas.
Was out the whole of the afternoon on this singing engagement, plus time for noms en route home. I still have 1 newsltr to finnish rather ASAP, wl see what I can do. Sing did go well, just time consuming.
Am sorta supposed to be watching SwAdelines Intl contest & am not -- think QTs are on now unless they're done already. This is all in Denver. Rising Star is tomorrow AM, with Fourtune Cookies our local youth QT leading it off. Then chorus finals in the PM. Did hear that Capital City the Indpls chorus made top 10, so they'll be up again tomorrow. One of my chorusmates duals with them.

One of the offerings in the stamp sale at Zazzle today that I missed. Unable to ck in or to get help from customer svc in time. Was actually a flying pig stamp I wished to get, for the women amateur radio newsltr referred to above. Really nice discount, was disappointed whinge whinge

Right now we're called Shelby County Humane Society. We have issues with people thinking we're supported by Humane Society of the US and Kentucky Humane Society and we get funds from neither. We also have an issue with people confusing us with the local animal shelter. We need a completely separate identity so we can raise funds. Anyone have any ideas?

All Species Rescue? We have a place here called 10th Life, which I think is clever. Not reat suggestions, but maybe my poor start will inspire others to think 'I can come up with something better than that!' :) good luck!

Happy Birthday to Lilyspad!

Thank you! I am seriously about drunkicaded about now.... :D*** I thinks it's time for me to sign off, and maybe go eat some dinners!

Lajimi...good to see you back on! We've been worried! Now, where is that sherpa????? And I have detected an absence of the Venerable Q_J as well....wtf????

Ahh....I am listening to the outside sounds now....it's raining. Softly.

John Buck..thanks for the birfday wishes!! I have to go now, so see you all in the morning!! You all sleep in a comfy spot! Purrs and head-butts...... :D

Greetings All.. Long week at work.. got lots done ! Spent last weekend doing generator startups and maintainance.. the LP/ Natural gas ones are easy.. the gasoline ones, not so much.. have tried to get people to turn off the gas tank and run the generator until it quits.. keeps the carburetor from gunking up and makes it very easy to start when needed.. a lot of people 'forget'.. they remember when I give them the bill.. rather than explain all over again, I tell them to look at the last bill and think about it..
Kitties are doing well.. most of them are zonked out right now... they will be bouncing off the walls about 2 or 3 AM... haven't released mamakitty yet.. will try to get her chipped this weekend.
We didn't get much of the storm.. no outages, no high winds, not a lot of rain... we really lucked out on this one... and apparently the tidal surges didn't make it this far.. feel sad for those that got slammed.. saw some before/after photos yesterday... wow !! and apparently another storm is firing up for Nov. 6-7.. light rain forecast for this area.. not certain about the strength if this one... suggest that you google 'WXrisk'.. check out the blogs.. this guy is GOOD ! He nailed Sandy before it hit Haiti.. nailed Irene last year... he could use a proofreader on his blogs.. but he,s the real deal....
Time to hit the hay.. bbl..

Tnx ygss. How 'bout Shelby County Animal Rescue, unless that's too obvious & easy by more than half? We'd get Mew Beginnings as suggested by Haruko_, but that might be just a tad too arcane.

xanadian: Missy, my BF's cat of 15 1/2 years passed away this morning at 10:45 AM. She died from FLEAS and the anemia they caused, despite her being treated and dosed with Frontline just 2 weeks ago. :-/ The only thing the vet told us (outside of giving her anti-flea stuff) was "feed her more." :-P Apparently, she was doing fine up until 2 days ago when all her get-up-and-go got up and went. She is sorely missed here. She was a very smart and loving kitty with an attitude as big as the moon.

Here is a pic of the little girl.

[i249.photobucket.com image 426x639]

For some reason, she liked hanging out in the bathroom.


that's sad. i'm sorry for your loss. Our 2 dogs have been itching like crazy, despite flea collars, flea spray, and Frontline. Mrs. Buck took them to vet this morning; they have mange, even though they are only outside twice a day for their after meal walk.

Vet said this was the 5th case he'd seen this week (in a town of 4900)

Gremie is a hard cat to photograph as well. By the time you get him to sit still in the right light he manages to turn his head when you take the shot.

I think we can all agree that we need to allocate Federal funding to genetic research to create an engineered disease that wipes out all fleas forever. It's not like anything feeds off of them...

Hi guys, I was told to crosspost this over here, rather in the TFD area :D Hopefully I can get some additional advice!

First cat Caturday thread! I hope this isn't TL;DR!
Okay, I have a cute little 8mo Tabby I adopted- he has all his shots, dewormed, microchipped, is a healthy weight- the whole gamut of cat health services. We also have an elderly cat, 13 yo Tonkinese with kidney issues (and the appropriate food for such) who is also otherwise up to date on everything. Both are indoor cats only.

With the older cat, Shawn, we just refill his bowl whenever it's empty because he'll only eat when he's hungry. With the kitten, Crash, he'll eat til he throws up, will attempt to eat the throw up, then Shawn's food, then will try to break into the cabinet his food is in, then he'll try to eat my food, anything in the sink, things that aren't food (sunflower seed hulls, pennies) and then cry for hours outside his food cabinet.

We are NOT starving this cat, he gets more than the recommended daily amount, and given his druthers he'll eat til he barfs and then eat more. He's a wily one- he cries the most when the food cabinet is taped shut or otherwise blocked. He'll freak out until I unblock it... and then try to sneak in when I'm not listening.

He seems otherwise healthy, very energetic and far too inquisitive for his own good. It's just that he's constantly begging for food while he's awake. He eats way too fast as well, so we scatter his scoop of kibbles all across the entire kitchen floor... but he just runs around with his face on the floor to eat them faster. Today I got him a little wicker ball he has to bat around to get food out, but it only slowed him down minutely.

He came home with a big bag of Purina Pro Plan for Kittens from the shelter, and they said not to change it or he'd be shiatting everywhere. We mixed in some of the older cat's pre-kidney disease food as Crash got older (Katz-en-flocken gluten free gold or something) but it gave him the runs. For the record, we call him the shiatten because he's as destructive as his name, not because... ahem.

Any advice would be appreciated! I love him so much and it kills me he cries for food all the time. Must... be strong! 

Addendum:
He doesn't seem entirely fond of the wicker ball full of food, but it tuckered him out so there's that at least
The older cat and he "get along" well enough, in that Crash likes to pounce on him and then run away while Shawn just shakes his head in a "wtf r u doin" manner.

He could just be a little shiathead, like some of my babes ;) but you should really take him to the vet and get some bloodwork done. There are several underlying problems which could be causing the excessive hunger. Chances are he's FINE, but doesn't ever hurt to check! If it's not a physical issue, then you can start learning how to change or help the behaviour (ha, good luck with that!)

Hope everything works out okay, and Happy Caturday!

lilyspad: I probably shouldn't even ask this, considering how much trouble I have just getting pics to show up in the thread, but how do you post pics in your profile? AND, if I want to post something on there, can it have the f-word in it, or is that taboo???
I want to behave and mind my manners.....


Oh hi... I skimmed the thread and didn't notice anyone answer your questions, so I will (please forgive me if I missed something, it's getting late and my eyes are wonky).

You can post pics in your profile the same way you do when you post pics in the thread. Go to the "Edit" section of your profile and scroll down, you will see several fields where you can add text and photos. Each field has the little row of formatting buttons above it including the "teeny mountain/show this pic" button. Paste in the link to where your photo is hosted, highlight it, and press that button. Ta-da! Make sure you click the "save profile changes" button at the bottom when you're done. :)

Fark has a filter to automatically replace any naughty words you type with alternate spellings such as fark and shiat and biatch, so everything remains Safe For Work. It can't change image files with naughty words in them though, so if you want to be on the safe side, proceed with caution there. I do believe full-frontal naughty words are frowned upon. But posting a link to images with naughty words in them is A-OK! :)

Good manners never hurt. Other than that, I forbid you to behave yourself here. :)
