OlderGuy: AlienDandelion: *scampers in*Oh Hai!!!I made it in this weekend!YAY!!!I better start catching up on the thread!Alien !! So glad to see you here ! Tis a cold rainy day down here.. alternating between rain and snow.. temp just hit 32, so any more precip will be snow... took a cat nap earlier, with cats.. was going well until Thumper went after Trip,s tail.. Trip has the bum front leg and can't climb, but does carry a grudge, I think he may have given up the chase at this point.. Thumper has been jumping from one object to another, with Trip following on the floor.. the rest of the crew have been following them, waiting for the fracas... I finally defused the situation by serving dinner.. if you say the word 'food', 'eat', or 'hungry', you have Trip,s undivided attention, and if you take one step toward the kitchen he will get there before you... Hope the job is going well.. sounds like you enjoy it..
Yes that is a snake, a TOY snake! I bought it to train the Guinea Fowl but they never looked twice at it so I put it in the garden to keep the birds off of my tomatoes. It wound up in the bucket of strange garden stuff.
I was trying to find all of my tools when I came across it and just tossed it on the floor. I threw it away by the end of the day because it was so unnerving to see it every time I walked in the garage.
I keep buying more tools to get the house livable and then I find I already have one or two of whatever I just bought. My son is helping with the heavy or icky work and I am spoiling him with all the tools I own. He thought the oscillating saws were a gimmick until he used mine.
This was one of the more interesting finds under the bathroom floor:

Allen. The end.: Oh hell. My cat Jupiter is 18 years old. Monday she goes into the vet...things are not looking good. I've never lost a pet before, and I am wigging out. She was a hunter, and now an indoor cat, and I've been giving her glucosamine and chondroitin...but she is eating MUCH less, although she is still drinking plenty of water. I hope it's just a UTI. Instead of renal failure. And yeah, I know Jupiter is a guy name...but she came with it. When I got her I could hold her in one hand (peep!)...now I am scared.
tigerose: 5monkeys, Ima4 Thank you both for your efforts. I do not understand people who willingly abandon their animals. But I do know there is a special room in hell for them. Karma will catch up eith them, and if we are lucky, God will let us watch! :)
At Long Last I's here, have rung up the phone #, left my cell & requested gal who picked up to request Damon ring me back. No ain't been drinkin', not allowed to any more.
cman: Hero should outweigh caturday tag
We're having 12 cats spayed and neutered in the morning. Kitten season is arriving already, early, we already took in a litter of newborns. Anyone who'd like to help us with preventing thousands of unwanted kittens from being born, can donate here. Specify spay/neuter. Thank you!!
sherpa18: CrankyAndi: Had a huge scare today.... I kept saying 'I was almost hit by a semi....I was almost hit by a semi'.This is why I personally never drive next to a truck, I always try to stay in front of them (I avoid being behind them as it is hella scary when a 53' trailer strips a tire at 70 mph and it comes flying out and hits your front end/windshield - happened twice to me). Glad you are OK.[i415.photobucket.com image 400x480]

And it is story time....I went to take my trash out earlier today (fark, it's cold out there), and also picked up yesterday's mail on my way back in. I found a scratch off card (like a lottery ticket) from a local restaurant that is a chinese/japanese/thai place (which is in the strip mall right behind my building, I have never gone there because they are kinda expensive) and I got a $15 discount! I promptly placed an order and went to pick it up (they are literally about 50 yards away - and holy shiat, it is really farking cold out!!) .... Anyway, I get home, and look in the bag, and they gave me a small soup instead of a large, and shrimp dumplings instead of dim sum - so I called them (expecting a credit on my next order) and the woman who answered could not apologize enough, and said she would fix it immediately. 6 minutes later, my bell rings, they gave me a large soup (plus more noodles) and the dim sum, and a bonus egg roll, and I got to keep the rest of the stuff (i figure I got about $30 bucks worth of food for something like $3)Meanwhile, the point of this long-winded story is that the second piece of mail was from another local place ... and the white boy could simply not comprehend why I would not call them - since they have wings named after him ....
tigerose: valnt9 you are welcome, and no, I don't own stock in kleenex..but maybe I should!All of you who have taken care of, taken in and welcomed into your homes a wayward animal, an abandoned one, you are all the "kind heart" that has been heard. In this existance and the next. Your reward will be beyond telling.
tigerose: John Buck 41: lilyspad: tigerose: John Buck 41 and thank you for all your pics and posts. I look forward to seeing you every week..and your little dogs too!HA!!! I read that in the Wicked Witch voice....."and you're little dog Toto, too!" :DKnow what's funny? That's one of my favorite movies and I just watched it this afternoon. Mrs. Buck got me the 2 disc Dvd a couple years ago with some great outtakes, deleted scenes, trivia, and whatnot.[mundabor.files.wordpress.com image 550x404]I love it! That is a classic, and has so many quotes to use...I would love to play the witch. She rocks.

Those Who Haven't Bookmarked This may have already tripped over another Critter tale. Marine Corps has a new mascot, 9 week old bulldog pup Chesty (for Chesty Puller who was famous Ago). OO-Raw(r) & Awww. Plumbicon was Army, not Marines, but we're both Butler Univ grads & Butler mascots are bulldogs.
laulaja: Am trying to think how to make these without buying the utensil; own a couple microwave muffin "tins" but somehow doubt trying to microwave.

maynerdkitty: John Buck 41: maynerdkitty: /// My horse are coming home March 29!!!Bet you can't wait! Are they being brought out to you or do you have to go get 'em?My friend is bringing them out, her trailer and driving skills are MUCH better than mine. I have never pulled horses before. You have to be very careful how you start, stop and turn so they don't scramble for balance in the trailer. We will probably drive up to meet her in Dallas and drive her rig the last four hours to let her sleep. I am sure that they will like the warmer weather. It has been a cold winter for them. She said that they have coats like bears.I might build the new barn just behind these trees.[farm9.staticflickr.com image 500x282]

The kitties are HAPPY.
I went out to work on the farm and Oma Cassie came out to greet me, soon I had Forrest and Flower all swirling around my legs like minnows in a pond.
Cassie couldn't stop smiling, she jumped up to get her food and was making biscuits while she ate.
tigerose: I have been sewing this afternoon, but Eli just reminded me that he needs some kibbles. So I decided to pop in and see what you all have been up to. Quite a bit as it turns out!!shortymac before we had Eli, my two cats were indoor only, and they preferred it that way. I tried harnass for them, nope, they thought grass was too icky on their tootsies. Eli on the other hand was a feral rescue, so he knows the outside and drove us nuts getting out, until we finally saw things his way. He comes when I whistle for him and he keeps some of the extra rodent population down. In fact my neighbors routinely tell him where the mice/chipmunks are, with requests to be rid of same. I think with Felines, being smaller animals, and less domesticated at first glance, it is easier to justify allowing them outside to fulfill thier hunter instincts..just my two cents! :) It is safer for them to be inside, less disease prone etc..but there is something thrilling about watching a cat race across the yard, take a flying leap and climb half up the tree, just for the fun of it!
shortymac: I really don't get the whole "letting cats out" thing, we don't do that with dogs or any other pets. [Dogs going to the bathroom doesn't count]. I don't know how the tradition started.
5monkeys: [sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net image 850x637] [sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net image 850x637] This is them. They are the up on the cat tower wrestling right now.
Arumat: shortymac: Okay caturday crew I have 2 issues:1 - Downstairs Neighbors went away on a vacation somewhere about 2 weeks ago now and left their indoor/outdoor cat out, I'm not quite sure if it was intentional or not. The litter box is in the laundry room is empty and turned over. We've started to keep food out for him along with 2 possible strays/pets people kicked out. It's Canada and we've already had a blizzard so I'm worried about him. We think downstairs kitty is sleeping in the shed. Should we let him in? Hubby and I are planning to mention that we fed the kitty whenever the neighbors get back.2 - Heidi has been licking her lower belly down right to the skin since her first flea attack in September. We got vet-strength meds and haven't seen a sign of fleas in months but she still keeps licking it clean. What do I do? She doesn't have any sores or anything.I can give you some advice for problem #1. Give that kitty a new home, either with you or with some friends who could use a new family member. Also, when your neighbors come back from their vacation either give them a good punch from me, or guilt-trip the crap out of them.

The First Four Black Sabbath Albums: It's been ages since I've visited Fark. I miss it. I'm just too busy with the various Boards of Directors I'm on and my day job. Anyway, I have to share the little photo shoot my wife and I had on Valentine's Day:[sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net image 850x850]
Another ps for the Caturday Fambley > what's with the spermz donations? Are we picking up the 1K vet bill?
Got my hook and yarn ready >> all day I get to be a Happy Hooker!!

Second, Third or Fourth by now the motion for Ms Mapes as admin of the year.
yobbery: admin of the year.
Bathia_Mapes: tigerose: The mighty laulaja has tracked down the hero of this weekend's Caturday. I waz going to post his edir..but decided that if you are interested in sending him a thank you, that you can email me or laulaja and we'll give you the goods!That's a better way to handle it. Don't want you to get in trouble for posting contact info in a thread, even if you're doing it for a good cause.
gremlin1: Hearing about abandoned animals reminded me of a dog named Sandy. *snip*
tigerose: CrankyAndi: 5 years ago tomorrow I met my sweet Ellie. She rescued me. I'm sure there are folks who think I rescued her but it really she who rescued me.I found her on the street in my neighborhood. She was a recent kitty mom but there were no babies near her. She was starving and very sick. And feral[i112.photobucket.com image 850x637]My vet did her thing (tests) and asked me what I was going to do with the kitty. I said 'Keep her of course' I swear my vet smiled.I named her Ellie after my mom...Ellie was very angry when I picked her up off the street...she called me names. MOM!!! (my Mom had Alzheimer's and called me a Son of a biatch, Dirty Bastard and a Whore.) I still laugh at that. I'm a biatch yes but I am a daughter, not a bastard and I'm sure someone thinks I am a ho (I am not of course).Ellie and I have a huge connection now of course. She is on the couch behind me right now.[i112.photobucket.com image 850x637]For a former feral, she is a love. It took 2 months before i could hold her. And from there we connected. It took 6 months till she decided she needed to sleep on my bed and I wasn't going to kill her. Now she sleeps with me every night and snuggles next to me.Happy Gotcha Day Ellie....(and if anyone wants to see her blog it is at http://ellientheheathens.blogspot.com/ )Happi Gotch Day Ellie! I am so glad that you decided to enrich CrankiAndy's life. She would not be the same without you. Her calves would be so cold in winter, there would not be that insistant soul at dinner time. You have filled a space that needed to be made whole. Thank you kitteh. You are awesome!

captain feedback: i may be in the market for some new kitteh toyz...shannon has eaten all the feet off her catnip mousies.is it spinnyr that creates the ded spermz?how can i order?
domari: rev. dave: My cat was a rescue from foreclosure. But was outside when rescued.What's sad is how common this happens. We've taken in so many cats left behind when people lose their homes. We took in a litter of kittens that a landlord found in the closet a few days after his tenants moved out. Luckily he checked the house when he did or the kittens would have died in there,. I don't know why people just can't bring them to a shelter or rescue instead of leaving them behind to die. I don't know if you were here when we had Vanna. Her family lost their home, moved out and left her there, pregnant. She was starved until a neighbor found her and gave her to us.[farm6.staticflickr.com image 500x371]

Unless we can get spinnyr to toss in some ded spermz... which reminds me - I need to get in touch with her to order more because the kitties love 'em and the puppy eats 'em... I am down (from 4) to two, one of which has no tail...LMAO!! Upping the ante, eh? SPERMZ!!!How on earth could anyone resist teh ded spermz!.....and a shaved pussy.[i211.photobucket.com image 640x531]Is this shaving thing a permanent solution to his horrible hairballs???Well....it was either that or Nair.Actually, he seems like he's into it. It makes him look like a little kid again.[i211.photobucket.com image 640x548]Is that going to be a full-time solution? Does he have to always be shaved?? Or is it until you and the vet can come up with something else? Just curious.... loves me some Sweet Biscuit! :D
Shaving only temp solution as Biscuit's Fur Grows Back. Yakko looks only a little furrier than that normally, he's one of Furrnandina's sons. Clipped Wakko with scissors few days ago to remove drooley mats, he's now much better.Well, reigning, FCC'll be after me too, but I got an excuse cause I'm licensed as N8CGM by them!
tigerose: John Buck 41: OlderGuy: I will be monitoring while I call my 'lil sis'.. today is her birthday...My daughter's (30th!) birthday today. Yikes.

Who is game to call?I must've lost my damn mind... of course now he's likely got my phone number on his caller ID and will report me to the FCC.... it's been nice knowing you all!
