Spent 7 hrs. at the hospital today with step-dad for a same-day surgery. Should have been less time, but the surgeon was late. Woke up at 1:30 and couldn't go back to sleep. Don't know how long I'll make it tonight, but I'll try! :D

This tale was in LoveMeow#158 this week.  Such exquisite ear-tufties on Flipper, who I thought the LM recounting said was, or began as, a she.
Wheels like these are what I/we so despurrately wished to get for our late dearly loved Cheeky after she had her stroke in 1993. But that was almost before the Internet, & they weren't as readily available then. Coulda bought her some more time with some ....

http://www.care2.com/greenliving/pygmy-jerboa-video.html1:09 world's cutest mouse

Pygmy Jerboa is one of the smallest mammals in the world. This wee critter tipped scales at 32 grams, just over an ounce. In Kazakhstan, this little rodent is so adored, it's featured on postal stamps.... -- speaking of cordless mice --

Am thinking the children of serving British forces personnel in the Middle East would pick up jerboas as pets.  Someone who signed the comments under this vid, said the one her children collected was called "Jemmy" & lived with them, adored as referred to above, for years.

Yay !! I found Caturday !... Great to be here.. got lots done this week... the east coast storm rolled through last night about 1am.. 10 minutes of hard rain, moderate winds..didn't even knock over my trash cans.. others weren't so lucky, according to the news... Fred had retired to his bunk.. checked the monitor and he was laying on his back, totally zonked.... and we are back to the cold again... I will be so glad when spring gets here.. when it gets cold, the Itis boys come calling.. most of the time it,s Art, with an occasional visit from Burse.... one of the 'benefits' of getting older.... I can deal with it.

It has been a cold and miserable day here. Blowing snow with 30 to 40 mph winds for a temperature of about 2. Jack loves it, I swear the colder the better for him, and Gremie just watches him out the window with the occasional "meow". I also just got my water back after a water main break about 6 hours ago.I had to melt icecubes for everyone's water dish.

brap, one wonders your relative age.  Thought it only high schools of this day & age even have robotics clubs, let alone well funded ones.

Good on the kids for buying wheels for Flipper!

Yay! It is Caturday! Gosh what a looong week! One of my students admitted to cutting herself..her arm looked like Edward Scissors hand had been at work. I cannot tell you how sad it made me. And then, my long term sub position ends next Tuesday. Big sigh. I love the staff, but running the in school suspension unit. No. Not only do I see nothing but the trouble makers, but I have to be stern all day long! And that is not my purrsonality! I want to talk and joke and just, be someone they can talk to, you know?

So stressed. I came home for lunch and spent most of it snuggling with kitteh.

I did not see that. We have an extensive program at our school to combat bullying. We have Campus Impact, that talks about bullying, cyberstalking,sexting etc, and gives the kids tools to use to report and what steps they an take to control the situation. As for bullying, we have this thing called second step. It defines bullying, and gives strategies to overcome it. We have a seperate bully report form for students to fill out,and believe me, it is taken very seriously.

In my time as a sub, I have lost one student to sudden death, one student to suicide, one student who pulled her trech tube so I suppose that is a suicide as well. It has been years, but I still mourn them.

Some well-considered words picked up, after charging ahead with the local amateur radio club rag & not waiting for the District Superintendent's column -- Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Bass lady in TriCitySound chorus, Lompoc CA (Sequoia-Pacifica Region ~12) wrote that.

tigerose: Yay! It is Caturday! Gosh what a looong week! One of my students admitted to cutting herself..her arm looked like Edward Scissors hand had been at work. I cannot tell you how sad it made me. And then, my long term sub position ends next Tuesday. Big sigh. I love the staff, but running the in school suspension unit. No. Not only do I see nothing but the trouble makers, but I have to be stern all day long! And that is not my purrsonality! I want to talk and joke and just, be someone they can talk to, you know?

So stressed. I came home for lunch and spent most of it snuggling with kitteh.


Don't get why kids do this. In the past, whenever I thought about teaching I would try to imagine what age/grade range I could cope with. Outside of college students, I couldn't come up with any. Ok, maybe kids 10 to 12. Not 'little' kids, but not not teenagers either. But I'm assuming (in most cases) one has to teach elementary/middle/high school before getting a position in a college, so I will never be able to impart my wisdom.

lilyspad: OlderGuy: Yay !! I found Caturday !... Great to be here.. got lots done this week... the east coast storm rolled through last night about 1am.. 10 minutes of hard rain, moderate winds..didn't even knock over my trash cans.. others weren't so lucky, according to the news... Fred had retired to his bunk.. checked the monitor and he was laying on his back, totally zonked.... and we are back to the cold again... I will be so glad when spring gets here.. when it gets cold, the Itis boys come calling.. most of the time it,s Art, with an occasional visit from Burse.... one of the 'benefits' of getting older.... I can deal with it.

Hope it's not too painful!

Middle school is 6th to 8th grade. So right about the ages you would like to be around. I like Middle school. They are very cat like. Sometimes they just need a gentle voice, a soft paw, and a set of listening esr..sometimes they need a good no claws barred verbal smack.

Yeah.. Art wears out his welcome rather quickly but insists on sticking around.. after many years of crawling around under houses and climbing into attics, all in the pursuit of repairing ac,s and furnaces, etc.. seems some things don't bend like they used to... years ago, I could fit through an opening the size of a cinderblock... have had to dig my way under houses to get to a floor furnace, only to find that there was a pit underneath it which was full of fuel oil from a broken pipe.. good thing that the furnace wouldn't work.. the pit would have burned for a month....

Will say for TheIceQueen's benefit, or lack thereof, that I did hear of the pre-teen's suiciding due to bullying. Also that the 15 yr old in the band spirit line who was shot & killed in Chicago jusr recently did an anti-bullying vid when she was 11 or 12. As Gabby Giffords said, we gotta stop losing our young youth this way --

Did you see the story down here in Columbus area where the 11 yo killed herself due to bullying. WTF is wrong with people today!

I did not see that. We have an extensive program at our school to combat bullying. We have Campus Impact, that talks about bullying, cyberstalking,sexting etc, and gives the kids tools to use to report and what steps they an take to control the situation. As for bullying, we have this thing called second step. It defines bullying, and gives strategies to overcome it. We have a seperate bully report form for students to fill out,and believe me, it is taken very seriously.

In my time as a sub, I have lost one student to sudden death, one student to suicide, one student who pulled her trech tube so I suppose that is a suicide as well. It has been years, but I still mourn them.

Hiyah! Back atcha! Sorry to hear of your hooman Bridge crossing, though I hear there are many openings for lap space in the here after. I think it's Heaven.

Notes
Crystal clear notes chime
Across the heavens,

Another soul rises,
Bright shining it ascends.

Such a wonderful essence,
Richly colored.

Purple of Compassion,
Bright blue of Joy,
Red of anger,
Green of wanting,
White of forgiveness.

What a delightful vision,
Glorious Scent.

I rise,
Venture forth on frail limbs.
Seeking,
To glimpse that Light.

Drawn to an irresistable
Presence.

I am timid,
Racked with sorrow,
Pain.
No one has ever loved me.

Yet the Shining Soul
Sees me,

Crouches,
Gathers me,
In it's arms.

Enfolds me,
The Stray.

In one brilliant moment,
I am set free,
Stray no longer.

Loved.

I am complete.

This is why I could never be a teacher. I couldn't think of any grade I could tolerate. My sister teaches art in the middle school level which I'd think would be the worst grades of all. She loves it. She has her masters in education administration, but loves being in the classroom. More power to her and anyone who works in the school system nowadays. I really would never be able to do it.

She always thought I was the weird one for being an EMT, she thinks it's so gross. I rather deal with sick and dying people than work in a school.

Hey, this Caturday story was on my blog 2 days ago...

AnimalPalooza - High School Students Help Flipper The Cat Go Mobile



Happy Birthday!
 
2013-02-01 02:25:17 AM  

tigerose: The worst sound in the world is the one your cat makes when you accidentally step on them. I trod upon Eli's tootsies earlier tonight. He is still mad at me! Somehow,"I didn't see you" isn't making him feel happier.


Hello everybodeee!

 ^-^
='.'=

I swear, my cats position themselves to get their little tootsies trodden on deliberately!
They are nowhere near when my foot starts to come down, then "MRRRAAAOW!"
Little kitty toes got pinched.
I immediately pick them up, cuddle them and apologize profusely...
all the while giving them the mental fish-eye and thinking "You did that on purpose, admit it!"
I'm assuming I'm forgiven...because it keeps on happening. No hard feelings...

D'Artagnan seems to be a much happier cat since he got his ears hosed out...involved an overnight vet visit, sedation and some SERIOUS ear cleaning...seems he had quite a wax sculpture in one of his ears, causing the constant head-shaking...and possibly moodiness.

Yesterday he was willing to actually SHARE THE CAT TREE with Riktor. Riktor's joining him was very slow and tentative, and he didn't stay up there long, but usually D'Artagnan has at least a 3-foot personal space when it comes to the other cats.

Last night, he jumped up onto the kitty bunkbed that's in the computer room, displacing Raven from the pillow where she was lying.
He had no objection to her moving over about a foot into the bed that's right next to the pillow though...both settled down and snoozed.
He's even been willing to share my lap...although the lap configuration does take a great deal of diplomacy and s-l-o-w movement into position.

Kinda surprising, but nice. He's becoming the merry affectionate boy I brought home from the kitty jail almost four years ago.

Noooooo!  Poor Eli!  Will he milk it and gimp around the house?  lol

Right now he is giving me the stink eye, I'm not going to let you touch me, here see my back, treatment. He will get over it. But not until he makes me feel terrible!


Think this may be a time for Apology Tuna?
Don't have any pics...just wondering if it works.

Good morning! The little (well not so little) kitties will be 1 year old this week so I thought I'd post a few shots of them growing up!

Jack, back at the shelter, back when he was known as Tyler

tigerose: Crystal clear notes chime
Across the heavens,

Another soul rises,
Bright shining it ascends.

Such a wonderful essence,
Richly colored.

Purple of Compassion,
Bright blue of Joy,
Red of anger,
Green of wanting,
White of forgiveness.

What a delightful vision,
Glorious Scent.

I rise,
Venture forth on frail limbs.
Seeking,
To glimpse that Light.

Drawn to an irresistable
Presence.

I am timid,
Racked with sorrow,
Pain.
No one has ever loved me.

Yet the Shining Soul
Sees me,

Crouches,
Gathers me,
In it's arms.

Enfolds me,
The Stray.

In one brilliant moment,
I am set free,
Stray no longer.

Loved.

I am complete.

God morgen, everybodee! Just caught up with the thread and had - had - to look up more pics of the pygmy jerboa. Apparently they have very large ears, they just keep them right next to their bodies all the time. Looking at these two pics, it's hard to tell it is even the same type of critter!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v259/Mordgorond/1210jerboa2_zps2ad2 c afc.jpg

Apparently there are several species of Jerboa, so these may be two different types, but I am still kind of blown away by the little dude's ears! Those things are so cute, I think I'm gonna be sick.


Quick question about gooshy fuds and kittehs. The GoGo Beastie has always liked the Friskies Seafood Sensations pate style gooshy fuds. The past week though, she's turned her nose up at all of the flavors in the pack, including the Salmon, which used to be her favorite. She'll cry and beg for gooshies, I'll give her 1/4 of a can (the most we give her at once), she'll sniff at it and look at me like "what's this shiat?" and then start crying and begging again before just going for her kibble. What gives, man? I even bought individual cans from a different store the other day thinking the case I had bought might be bad, but she's still rejecting her gooshies. The only thing I can think to do is maybe buy a few cans of things like chicken pate flavored or turkey and see if maybe she's just sick of seafood, but other than that, I dunno. Any ideas? She's driving me CRAZY!

Max and Tom have been hanging out in the "red light" district, I think they want to pick up some chicks.
The little weak one was up and fuzzy the next morning and we had the sudden appearance of a little black fuzzy one as well. I have three little chicks, one gold, one black and brown, and one two tone. I have three kitties here, one gold, one black and brown, and one two tone. The cats are aware of this.
My son and I built a neat little brooder that has a locking lid and and expanded steel top. The kitties guard it well.

I have all my stuff out of storage now and moved into my HUGE garage.
The horse trailer I bought made moving stuff so much easier. It must ride very well as nothing shifted around even with rough roads and train tracks. Lets hope the boys like it.
I need to get the house livable now so I can get all the critters and myself moved to the farm. We have been taking Fiona with us and she seems to like getting out of town. It is so peaceful away from traffic and trains and all that noise.
I have to rebuild the front steps today and hang a new front door. then I have the weekend to get at least one bathroom working.
If I move the microwave and fridge in I can camp there as I re do the inside of the house. I will try to get pictures of it today. It will be a lot of work but that is what keeps me going.
The Budweiser commercial made me cry- I miss my boys so much- they will be coming home in march. I will be forever grateful to my friend for keeping them safe for me. I came very close to sending them back to the retirement farm in FL.

The kitty ran up the tree,
The kitty ran up the tree,
Her nose went up
And her toes went up
And the kitty ran up the tree.

Why did she climb the tree?
To see what a kitty could see.
But all she could see
At the top of the tree
Was the tip of the top of the tree ---

So---

The kitty came down the tree,
The kitty came down the tree,
Her nose came down
And her toes came down
And the kitty came down the tree.

laulaja: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/pygmy-jerboa-video.html1:09 world's cutest mouse

Pygmy Jerboa is one of the smallest mammals in the world. This wee critter tipped scales at 32 grams, just over an ounce. In Kazakhstan, this little rodent is so adored, it's featured on postal stamps.... -- speaking of cordless mice --

Am thinking the children of serving British forces personnel in the Middle East would pick up jerboas as pets.  Someone who signed the comments under this vid, said the one her children collected was called "Jemmy" & lived with them, adored as referred to above, for years.


That video was great but at the very start it looked like the little guy weighed in at 3.2 grams! Truly a wee little beastie.

Three baby meerkats at Dartmouth zoo. The pregnant female was a recent acquisition and since meerkats are territorial, they were worried the meerkats in residence would not take well to a preggers female. The resident female though is actually helping raise the babies, so they have two mommies. How cool is that? And how cute are they?!?

Are YOU cooking or otherwise creating anything wondrous (or at all, really) at the time when GoGo starts begging?
She might be smelling what you're making and want a sample...

You'd be surprised (or maybe not!) at what cats enjoy sharing with their humans...f'rinstance, I'm expected to share my bread-butter-and-cheese sammich with D'Artagnan...
And they all seem to heartily enjoy mildly spicy chili (I'm a wimp).

She always comes down around the same times every day, and it's never when I'm cooking. I tend to step on her tail or little toesies 'cuz she never has figured out not to stand directly behind my heels while I'm busy with something, so she stays out of the kitchen when I'm cooking and for at least a good hour afterward when she knows I'll be cleaning.

I tried giving her a spoonful of albacore tuna for her lunch treat and she turned her nose up at that and went straight for the kibble. When she's eating the kibble she positions herself so she can stare me down and give me a "look at what you're reducing me to doing!" kind of look. It's bizarre. It's also too bad she can't tell me what she wants in English.
