Thanks for the info Laulaja! I do have an updated browser, but I don't know about the add-ons, or anything. Heavy tech-derp here.
And with that, I think I am going to sign off for the night, and go eat dinner. Yeah....I didn't have the huge mega-meal today, so I made some soup for dinner.
See all you lovely people in the early morning! Thanks for being here..... :D

Here is why Percy is being a brat
i1210.photobucket.com

Not too sure what her story is, mom just found her on the porch yesterday. There were some other kittens nearby but they were feral and tried to tear your hand off. This little girl is like "meh". Right now, she's snuggled up in my hoodie. Has a little fear but hasn't lashed out like a feral baby would. Not sure of her age, just starting to get her fangs in and eyes are still blue. Is trying to eat solid food but does better with the gooshies than dry.

Hello everybodeee!

 ^-^
='.'=

Just checking in before picking up an extra shift...regular guy wanted to hit the Midnight Madness sale...apparently he has his eye on a 40" flat screen TV for...um, can't remember, but it was a shockingly low price.

Went out to eat this year at The Pig Trough Golden Corral...and apparently so did everyone else! Managed to save a bit of turkey for D'Artagnan. He doesn't like gushyfud- gives me this "Really?" look when I put some down for him.
He prefers the stuff the hoomans are eating, thank you.

Wish I could adopt more black kitties for my Ninja Clowder (we tell Wimsey that he is an 'undercover ninja' so he won't feel left out), but D'Artagnan wouldn't appreciate it.
He's affectionate with ME and friendly towards other humans, but he isn't azackly fond of his clowder mates. 

Bloody damn photobucket STIIL won't let me log in...GRRRRR

TheIceQueen, the new young fem at your place reminds me greatly of a cat a late associate adopted & dubbed Pewter, due to her colouration. Associate died in a traffic accident, sadly, but Pewter was re-adopted fairly quickly.
The sweatered laddie on the plaid in one of numerous cretinbob fotos is a looker too; they all are! Both of you, good luck with the Petco adoption efforts. Also the flood protection.
Time for me to go sack in. Fresh new set of Goody Night pix has accumulated recently --

Good week, bad week. Any week that has Thanksgiving in it has to be good! Snuffycat has been seriously ill this week. He won't eat, he won't drink. He was fine last Saturday, Sunday he seemed lethargic, Monday and Tuesday he wouldn't eat breakfast. We got him to the vet's Tuesday where they hydrated him and gave him an antibiotic (Snuffy didn't cooperate at all!), but they couldn't really spot anything wrong. She assumes he had a run in with another cat and has an abscess somewhere under all that fur. Tuesday evening he seemed fine, but he hasn't touched a bit of food or water since. He turned up his nose at gushy cat food and at bacon this morning. Vet's opens at 8:00 tomorrow, I'll be calling at 8:01.

As for good week, it's Thanksgiving, my cold is finally gone, and I haven't been to work in a week! The young cats met the grandbabies today! Snuffy and Jet hid of course, so did Jack cat once he realized there were small smelly crawly things in the house! Desi and Cisco like babies however!

Desi, Cisco and the baby.

Young Zach really liked Cisco, he would scream because the kitty walked away from him and he didn't have any way of chasing him (Zach's a week or 3 away from crawling). Desi gets lots of props today, he stayed out throughout dinner and afterwards, even after Zach's brother and sister arrived. Liliana love Desi, I think she would have carried him home if he could, and Desi dealt well with the affection of a 2 year old he'd never met before!

We've been aware that the kittens could get on the kitchen counters, but the only food that is usually left out is fruit. I bought some really yummy rolls on Tuesday at Fresh Market, in a thin plastic bag, and left them out on the counter. I made what I hoped was my last trip to the grocery on my way home from work yesterday, only to find holes in the plastic bag and bites taken out of almost every roll. Bought a spray bottle -- they've gotten several sprays, but it's not really working. They kept getting on the dining table to check out the flowers. We've already decided that a tree is out of the question for Christmas - KITTENS!

He looks so sad! Hope he gets adopted soon.

Domari is taking a group down to Petco this weekend to go to new homes and I think that's one of them


I love visiting with the Petco and PetSmart kitties whenever I am in the store. I don't like it though when one of the kitties is out of food or water. I always have to tell the manager to be sure that it gets fixed immediately.

Wow they let bowls get empty? The Petco I bring the cats to has had complaints when the bowls aren't filled to the top! We've put huge bowls in the cat rooms and fill them so people don't complain.



Yeah, I was pretty surprised to see that. I have also seen cats that had obvious upper respiratory infections and gunky eyes there. I always make sure I bring it to someone's attention because that shouldn't ever happen. The water in her dish looked clean and full. There were only 2 cats at the store, so I am sure that someone just forgot. But, this was early afternoon and I wondered how long her food dish had been empty.

Charlie looks like Irma, Josephine's sister, especially the look of "who me?" in her eyes. Our den has a vaulted ceiling with a ceiling fan in the middle, about 12 feet off the floor. I catch her looking up at the fan, then looking at the book case, trying to figure out how she can get to the fan. I have no doubt she would be at the top of a tree in about 30 seconds.

quantum_jellyroll: I was sitting on the porch earlier this afternoon, enjoying a stogie.
Minding my own business.
About that time, a stray cat walked up on the porch, looked at me,
wandered over towards me and then it jumped up onto my lap.

She buried her face into my whiskers, then climbed up my chest and gave me head bonks.
Then, she climbed up onto my shoulder and purred into my left ear for several minutes before
climbing back down onto my lap and inviting me to pet her.

She was so close, and the camera on my phone is so crappy that I wasn't able
to get any decent pictures to prove that it really happened. Oh well.

I got myself some actual "Furry Lovin"!

The kitteh in question...

The adoption center in our closest Petco is run by another rescue and used by several rescues. I leave some cats there and bring some cats in only for adoption events. There are volunteers who are in the adoption center all day who clean up and make sure all the bowls are full and litter pans clean. When the store opens in the morning the Petco employees go in and do the same before the volunteers arrive. If any of the cats look sick at all, sneeze, have diarrhea, etc then we go get them out of there and bring them back home.

Some of the Petco employees complained when the other rescue had a cat with runny eyes in there. It was a Persian mix that had chronic runny eyes, like a lot of short nose breeds do. The rescue took the cat back out of the store, even though it wasn't sick, the Petco employees still complained about it being there. They don't want any sick looking cats in the store.

Before we bring any cats to the store we need to make sure they all have shots, wormed, spayed/neutered if old enough.

Cats aren't going to be adopted if they look sick in the store, they shouldn't be there at all.
 
2012-11-23 01:21:52 AM  

domari: Stuffed here too, went to my sister's house and ate lots of yummy food. Cretinbob had to work, so he missed out on dinner. He works almost every holiday, on purpose. After reading all the hoopla on Facebook about boycotting companies who make their employees work on holidays, I just shake my head. My mom used to have to work holidays, so did Cretinbob and I. It wasn't the end of the world, really.

We also have some "Black" Friday kitty deals, we'll be at Petco this weekend where I hope some of these cuties will be noticed and adopted.
Raven Link has a potential adopter.
Nova Link is new here.
Coco Link has been here a while. All her kittens were adopted, but like most momma cats, sticks around because people usually want kittens and not adults.
Paco and Pepe Link one photo, identical brothers!

Lots of nice black kitties waiting for new homes.


Man I used to be the FIRST to volunteer to work holidays at the hospital...
I did it for so many years straight till a co-worker and I somehow ended up working a 14 day stretch right through Christmas Eve till New Years Day.
Hahaha! we got one hell of a paycheck - and then our boss was told "NEVER.AGAIN. Those two just got paid what your entire group would have gotten paid for two weeks regular work. Get other people to volunteer these two are blocked for the next how many years."
/man we were dead ass tired by the time the 14th day hit, but the following few days off were more welcomed hahaha
