(with ty 2 all who've commented - this thread will end the tale)


"you don't live here" part 9 (continued from 2/16)


The day of the vet visit started with cleared skies and reality - I was going to have to pick up the silent green-eyed girl who was wound up tighter than a new spool of thread.I collected the band-aids, the Neosporin, donned long pants, a heavy shirt - wished like mad for some rattan body armor - opened the door to the big carrier.

Picked her up - she stiffened, froze - and - poof, in she was. The kittehs three thought this was a delightful new game and we were off, in the car. I'd been a smart-mouth the day the appointment was set and hoped the receptionist wouldn't recall. One look at the grey kitteh and she said "Oh - the possum - my goodness - how odd"she laughed. "I don't suppose you want to give her a home?" "Nope - she's cute though"

I'd asked that question approximately 57 times and now, waiting for the new and improved custom kitteh work to be finished, decided to appeal to the FARK "Caturday" crowd:


"Home needed for American shorthaired cats. This year's model, standard 4 on the floor, excellent high-speed nose-to-tail circling radius. Limited color options available, new body work, low mileage - really purrs"


   We waited for the Vet to call that mom-cat and her three babes were out of surgery, spayed, neutered, de-flea'd and "shotted" and I warned my son they would all likely be groggy.

I was wrong - they were stoned to the gills. All four of them, in the living room, listing like glassy-eyed sailors on a weekend pass.We began to giggle - then my son deadpanned, with a vanna white hand flourish "This is your cat on drugs" and I grew short of breath and teary-eyed. Maybe it was partly relief - they were all fine, no more "surprises" and no injuries.

After 24 hours I turned momma lose first with a "Tiny mother, if I never see you again, its okay." She was back in three hours, stepping inside and right to the bowls.They all followed her - time to admit we'd been claimed.

You don't live here, final chapter


So, we went from no cat and sore hearts to four cats and some outrageous behavior.

Fuzzle grew into 11 pounds of muscle with a falsetto "meh" or, if urgent "meh-eh" - he is a handsome fellow, a chocolate tiramisu with swirls of hazelnut creme. He favors tree climbing, drinking out of the fish pond and ambushing his siblings. His delta pledge name is "Moose"

Buddy aka "You Nert" is a standard gray-brown striped kitteh who has two talents - opening doors - all of them - and talking. His motto is "whatever you are doing, I must also be in the way" Best trick, ever, opening every kitchen cupboard door while trilling "what is this?" questions to himself.

Miss Mouse is now silver-grey and peach with half a white face and eyes the color ofmartini olives. A petite, reserved peacemaker, any raised voice brings her "Dr tiny-cat, stat" to cry plaintively "what is wrong?" while pawing ever higher. You try complaining about traffic, or that client - with a cat nose in your ear - can't be done.

And, last - Momma cat. She spends her days patrolling the yard on dime-sized paws, chasing Big Red away (to his eternal confusion) and her nights in the house - no longer ragged and endlessly licking at hot spots. She sometimes plays with total abandon.

They often pile together somewhere - Fuzzle, out cold; Buddy, "Hi! Where ya going? Need a door opened?" watchful Miss Mouse, usually with a felt toy nearby - and their still silent momma.


"don't get too comfortable" I say now and then. She gives a slow emerald blink - "I've brought three healthy kittens, a baker's dozen lizards and a ring snake - I will break your heart. Right now I am sleeping on your laundry - I win."


With thanks - and laughs - for everyone who has been claimed....keep on posting, pretty please

spinach gunk: catmandu: tigerose: spinach gunk: So I didn't see the usual hairdresser last night, I ended up with this sweet middle-aged lady I'd never seen before.  When I told her how much hair I wanted to cut off, she gasped, and I thought she was going to cry!  Long story short, I had about 2 or 3 inches trimmed off instead of 11 or 12.  :)  At least it looks much neater now.  I'll try again somewhere else in a month or two before the warm weather kicks in.  *Sigh*

Were you going to give your hair to locks of love? I believe the length has to be at least 8 inches. I betcha could do better. And if it's colored, it's ok, they sell it and use the proceeds for more wig makin...awesome!

Forgive the off topic rant: Locks of Love, while not a scam, does not do what people think they do. Locks of Love sells all the hair they receive then they charge families for wigs for kids with alopecia (not cancer). Pantene Beautiful Lengths works with the American Cancer Society to provide free wigs for cancer patients. Neither will accept dyed hair or hair that is more than 5% gray and will destroy any donations that fall into either category. (I belong to an online community of dedicated longhairs and this subject comes up often)

While we are on the subject:

I have thought about donating my hair in the past, but was told it needs to be very healthy and never permed or coloured.  I've always had a problem with split ends and dry hair, and used to colour it quite often.  My current batch of hair hasn't been coloured at all but there are certainly a few grays sneaking in there, and plenty of split ends.  I've thought about trying to make something out of my hair myself (sew it inside the brim of a hat or something) then personally donating it to someone who needs hair enough that they don't care it isn't grade A hair, but just haven't had the energy.  Probably don't have the sewing skills either.  That may change.  Y ...


Oh dear...that poor cat!!!  Looks to be in pain (or maybe just embarrassment)!

parasol, I too Fang Q.  Am meant to gather tigerose's poesies so they may be Published by someone capable, likely for good results for someplace like LittleMewsRescue, now in process of Mewbie Invasion.
Have a Likely Suspect in mind, if he just will. Same guy I hope to coax into doing 2013 chorus show printed program.
When I manage at last the desired 8DayWeekFulla36HrDays, also wish to gather You don't live here into unitised file, so it's All Together.

Caturday startin' off good...(with exception for poor tigerose)...

yobbery- Congrats on being an asses...although you didn't specify asses what.
Glad you got a glowing review...don't those make you feel just a tad better about having to go to Mordor?

Happy GOTCHA! day to salem witch and Suzy...may you have many more years of making skwerls learn very-fast-tree-climbing!

parasol...thank you for the enchanting series "You don't live here..."
Nice things turned out happy for everyone...what a wonderful crew!


Gotta pack up the kit (and kitty) bag and head off for Mordor meself.
Meant to actually ACCOMPLISH something today...then Riktor and Wimsey double-teamed me while I was reading and I was OUT...ZZZZzzzzzzzz....

Glad that the boys get along so nicely (i.e., sharing a lap, 'working' together) but geez, fellas!
S'pose I'm lucky that I never have more than 3 pile on...if they all ganged up on me I'd probably never wake up at all!

micromedic, regret I've no clues re CJ's paralysis. Hope it turns out to be temporary. If not, there are places that do wheels & carts for cats, the local robotics class doesn't have  to build tho that might be less pricey.
