Mr. Quantum_Jellyroll, I have a favor to ask. Did you, by any chance, save the pic you made for me about "going Comando" when posting pics a while back? When I got my new computer, I lost all my pictures that were in my inbox, and that was f*cking awesome! If so, could you please send it to me??? If not, that's okay. Thank you!! :D

Well if we're going for blind in one eye cats - I've already posted him before, but here's Mickey from Christmas:

img259.imageshack.us

Like most cats with one bad eye, he lands every jump like a Panzer tank falling off a cliff even though he barely weighs seven pounds.  He also goes down stairs butt-first and sideways because of several mishaps while he was learning to negotiate them when he was young.  He figured out something that worked for him and stuck with it.  I'll try to get video the next time I'm at the in-laws.

One-eyed cats are the best, though, when they look at you.  Since they always favor the side they can see out of, it always looks like they are really interested in you even if they aren't.  They can't do "bored cat."

To be honest...
I'll have to go back and look through the archives.
My memory is such a wasteland recently, your description isn't ringing any bells.

Fetchment in Nov past by our favourite AlienDandelion, who did just receive the Soft Kitty toy I was able to order for her. Discount just about made up for postage to Up Yonder.
She sounds OK tho overly busy, spending too many late hours at hospital.

Hey, all... Yay for Caturday... glad to be here... just fed the crew.. Fred was waiting for me at the front door, and raced me to the utility room. He won. found out that he figured a way to burrow under the top layer of the blanket on his bed.. the heating pad is four layers down.. now three.. and he is actually under a layer now... and demanded that I change his litterbox.. did it two days ago... was doing the happydance as I prepped his food...  I wish you could have seen him last year at this time.. couldn't get near him.... he used to come for food with mud and fiberglas insulation in his fur... knew that he was sleeping under houses... I close him up in the utility room at night..Raccoons were raiding his food bowl.. seems to like it.. security... I presume that he had to put up with company under those houses...
   We had about an inch of snow last night, more is expected tonight and tomorrow...  and it is COLD out there.. about 20 degrees right now.. 15 for the night.. I guess that when you get older, it gets to you quicker...
     Time for ZZZ,s ...   I will snap some pics of work soon.. have the new glycol piping completed,  start tomorrow on water and air lines to the keg washer.. working 20 feet up, on the scissorslift.... and it,s warm up there !     Night, All...

This kitten and her brothers and sisters were dumped in a cardboard box next to a barn in the middle of winter, again when the temps were around zero. She didn't make it but the three other kittens did

This is the same little girl that Mr T confronted the adult kitty on right? I was thinking there was a pic?

We've been in the deep freeze here all week. It was almost 40 late Sunday night then dropped like a rock and was in single digits Monday morning. Havn't seen the teens since.

Some people are miserable in heat and humidity. Not me, but this shiat? It totally saps my energy and drive. I hate it with the passion of a thousand suns.

We just lost this little girl. Same as in TFA. Her eyes were completely crusted shut and she had pneumonia. Lots of antibiotics and care, but in the end she just wouldn't eat.
Sometimes we are only able to make the short time they have comfortable.

Poor baby...  at least she knew kindness in her last days, which is likely more than she'd ever had before...   This is why you and domari are my favorite super heroes...


Thanks for thinking we're super heroes. My cape is getting tattered and worn. Super heroes are supposed to be strong, right?

This little girl we named Bradlea. She was around 6 months old.  I was so pissed off when I saw her the first time.  I wish I took photos of what she looked like when I picked her up but I needed to get her straight to the vet. Her lungs were so congested I could hear her breathing from several yards away.Her nose was completely plugged.  Her eyes and face had so much black crusty gunk on them they were crusted shut and it was all stuck to her face down to her chin. The vet had no clue when the last time her eyes were open. One of her eyes was trashed, sunken in, the other she could still barely see out of. The vet tech soaked the face with warm wet cloths and used a flea comb to gently pick all the gunk off Bradlea's face. Bradlea was so good while the tech was treating her, she laid there and purred. That was more attention than she was given in a long time.

Bradlea was a  kitten being fed by a woman who fed strays. I asked the woman why she waited so long to do something, she said she tried to clean her face and gave her antibiotics, which was bullshiat. I asked why the kitten didn't go to the vet, she said she didn't have time or money to bring her there. Instead, Bradlea lived outside in the frigid cold and snow like that for weeks.

We tried cleaning her up the best we could, the skin on her face was raw from drainage from the eye infection. In the photo you can see the mucus on her chin that drooled out of her mouth. We gave her antibiotics and put ointment in her eyes, We tried to get her to eat, but if cats can't smell or breathe, they can't eat. Every couple hours I tried putting babyfood meat, KMR or prescription food in a syringe so she could have several mouthfuls at a time, she wanted nothing to do with food. Eventually she gave up, clamped her mouth shut and wouldn't even swallow what I gave her. Nothing more I could do, she was just too sick, the damage was done before we took her in. Her body couldn't fight it.

But the entire time she was here all Bradlea wanted was attention, she was so snuggly and cuddly.  She was too weak to maintain her body temperature. So we kept her in our room with a heater and let her sleep with us to keep her warm. She was very content being wrapped in a blanket and sleeping snuggled up close to us. We'd lie in bed watching tv during the day, trying to feed her and keep her comfortable. She liked sleeping on Cretinbob, around his neck with her face in his beard. He pulled up the covers and let her sleep like that. She hated the food but loved the attention. She purred so loudly, it masked the sound of her gurgly lungs.

I was very sad that Bradlea died. I was so mad that her death was caused by human neglect just like most of the other deaths we've had to deal with. This sweet little girl could have been alive and happy if only someone took the time to bring her to the vet when they first saw she was sick and not let her get to the point of no return.

Her last days were spent very much loved, she died indoors, warm and snuggly, not outside in a foot of snow when it was -5 degrees out. That doesn't make it any better, she's dead, this could have all been prevented.

 I often swear I'm not going to do this anymore. Too much neglect, too many deaths. I'm tired. Not enough hours in the day.  My health sucks.  I'm broke. Just too much other crap going on.

So today I took in an approximately 8+ year old cat someone found in her basement a few days ago. Skinny with a belly bloated with worms, rotten teeth, and frostbite on her ears. Otherwise she's in pretty good shape, not sick, she eats well. Another very lovable friendly cat. What was I supposed to do, ignore her like others have? Should I look away and pretend she doesn't exist?

How do we make this ever stop???

I need this - something warm and fuzzy and heartwarming. This afternoon, I caught my piece of shiat next door neighbor kicking his cats because they left paw prints on his F-350 Lackofpeener-mobile.

/Called the cops.
//They laughed at me over the phone.
///Might be time to oil the F-350 windshield.
