Real Women Drink Akvavit: Ugh. I love California, but for pity's sake, triple digit summer days are the pits.

[images.petsadviser.com.s3.amazonaws.com image 400x312]


Ehhh, true, but we get a nice dry heat, so things like sweating and cold drinks actually do something. (Also, swimming, yay!) I've been in places where it's 100 degrees and 100% humidity out and they were a bajillion times more miserable than my time overseas. Strangely, those also tend to be the places that also snow in the winter. Yeeeeah, you lot can keep your "distinct seasons," I'll enjoy warm summers and rainy winters. :P

yobbery: Ralph was born with a genetic heart defect. He threw a clot to the back legs at the age of five. I remember at his first checkup as a wee kitten the vet detected the heart murmur and mentioned that it would shorten his life. We took that to mean that at some point in his life he would gradually decline...We weren't expecting it to be so sudden. It was a total shock for us, but for his sake I'm glad it was quick.

He was a nearly perfect Tuxie, and probably the biggest brat I had the pleasure of knowing.

This. So much. I had a black cat named Tommy. He threw a clot, recovered, then threw a clot once again. He was in such pain. I still remember how hard it was. And that has been 30+ yrs ago. You never forget your furry friends. Never.

Good morning everyone!

I need to get out to the farm and work on the drywall and electrical but I have this problem:


farm9.staticflickr.com
He NEVER sits on laps or likes to cuddle but this morning he sneaked onto my legs and started to purr himself to sleep. I have to let him nap it out.
Got the water on in the house again. We fixed the leaks in the master bath and decided to fill the water heater (after replacing the supply line with the ice maker tap). Now I have to buy a new pressure relief valve as it is leaking away under the house. I am starting to feel like Roseann Rosanna Danna!

My son was under the house fixing the drain for the shower in the master bath when he ask for the 25' tape measure, he ask me to write down some numbers. He called out two numbers, length and width, and then gave me a second set to write down. I ask what he was measuring. He said he was going to find the spot where the water lines come in under the house.
The current shut off for the house is under the middle of it and I hate the thought of having to climb under there or run out to the road if I needed to shut off the water. I am going to put an outside faucet and a shut off to the whole house on the outside where it is easy to get at if needed.
So then he ask for my project calculator and sat down with pencil and paper. He went out and said "it should be 99 inches from this corner" Damned if he wasn't dead on. I need to ask how he figured it out, I was going to start digging around the front of the house and work my my around until I found them, his way was faster and less work.
Well the cat is up and I have lots more work to do.
Be back later with more cat pictures, forgot to put the memory card in my camera so I could not get any of the happy farms cats from yesterday.

Based on my past experience, it's broken. You can go to a doc, but all they are gonna do is tape it up, tell you to stay off it, elevate it, take OTC pain killers, and charge you a ton of $$ for what amounts to 8" of first aid tape. If you insist on rx painkillers, you will probably get a script for 800mg motrin - so you could just take 4 generic brand advils and save the cost. Feel better!

monykers: One does not simply talk in a normal voice to kitty.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Kr0hEJGKoI&feature=youtu.be


This is true.
See this demonstrated quite frequently at my group home...guys/staff will be talking with each other, then for whatever reason Raven will be included in the conversation...and the voice CHANGES.
Usually a higher pitch, softening of both volume and tone, some loss of clarity of speech in exchange for 'cute', 'sweet' or expressing general approval of Raven.  Depending upon the speaker, there may be unintelligible sounds (aka 'babytalk') to which Raven responds the same way as she would to a more articulated request of "C'mere, sweetie...I want to pet you".

Interesting note:  an insertion or eruption of 'cat talk' will frequently rachet down any tension that may be building in the room from discord/disharmony between 2 or more of those present.
Won't always prevent stuff, but it does tend to de-escalate the situation for the most part.

It is not easy to describe this analytically...but you've all heard it, and y'all know it when you do.


WARNING:  Here be ranting...
I am very grateful for this phenomenon, and that Raven is permitted to come to work with me to invoke it, because there are times that I am convinced I work with either idiots, stupid idiots, passive-aggressive idiots, malicious idiots, or just people who are too self-involved to give a flying BFD about anything that does not directly and immediately concern themselves.
Raven, and the ability to have her there with me has been a gift beyond price.

If I hear the phrase "It's not my job to _________ (fill in the blank)"  One. More. Time. I honestly don't know how I'll react.
Right at the moment, I feel that my job description is'D.S.E. (Designated Somebody Else)...you know, the one whose job/problem/responsibility it IS.

Normally and for the most part, I like my job...but sometimes (ominous music)...
Guess I just wish that some of my co-workers would behave as though they liked their jobs too.

In addition to the ice and elevation, you might try 800 mg of ibuprofen if you're not allergic to it (or aspirin). That's Rx strength. It's the go-to anti-inflammatory for joints and muscles. That said, I'm a Ph.D., not a "real doctor", as my mother loves to remind me.... :)

The Ice Queen: Paging Sherpa Question for you. Had Rocky at the vet today, she's got something going on with her thyroid (thinking hyper but will have blood work back in a few days). She is also a CRF cat, her R kidney is about 1/4 the size of her L so it never really worked and the L kidney is wearing out. I thought I remembered you saying something about giving Dragon his thyroid meds via a cream on his ear. Is this right? How does it work with his kidneys? Just trying to think of options if she fights me on the metho. Danke!


Yep, it is called transdermal gel. You just get an RX from your vet, and find a pharmacy that will do the compounding process (not all are equipped for this, for instance, my local Walgreen's can't do it, but the one a couple of miles away can). Please note that it is more expensive than the pills.

Methimazole has nothing to do with kidney function - actually, IMHE the reverse is true. Dragon was on 10mg a day before the CRF diagnosis, but it was to dropped to 2.5mg as his thyroid seemed to improve.

I don't want to clutter up the thread, so feel free to drop me an email, I can offer a lot more tips and advice on dealing with these 2 conditions, as well as how to fool Rocky into taking his meds. :o)

And as a footnote to anyone worrying about medicating your cat/dog (for whatever issue) - with a little trial and error (and patience) - it CAN be done. And it works. Just remember:

RadicalEd: Hey Caturday folk! I have some kitty food questions I hope someone might have some good recommendations for.

One - I want to get a bowl for food that helps slow them down eating. One cat scarfs his food, which does result in some untimely piles on the carpet sometimes. Can anyone recommend one? I didn't see many at all when I went searching.

Two - A water bowl. I've been looking at getting one of the auto-water bowls, maybe with a waterfall, or moving water, etc. Does anyone have a brand they prefer? I was reading the reviews on Amazon, and its either they're too hard to take apart, too hard to clear, too big, broke easily, etc, etc. One didn't stand out more than the rest, so I was wondering if people used them here and could give some good feedback.

And Ivan, showing off his belly:
[img.photobucket.com image 540x405]


I try to hang around after I put the food out, so I can distract any cat that is gobbling too fast.  I'll call their name or nudge the bowl, anything to break up the momentum and make the hog slow down to take a breath.  It works pretty well, and it's free.

Sounds like you broke it. I've done that many times with toes, once so badly I had to straighten the toe myself because it was sticking out at a 90 degree angle. That kinda hurt (OK, I screamed, in agony. I'll admit it.). If you go to the hoomin doc they'll maybe (if they're nice) give you something for pain. They'll probably "buddy tape" it, too. Really all they can do for broken toes. You will also be told to put ice on it to reduce swelling and elevate it.

If you have decent insurance, go to the hoomin doc so they can poke it and touch it and then apologize and give you drugs. If you don't, elevate it and take some Motrin. That's what I had to do as I didn't have insurance.

tigerose: gremlin1: Gremie has decided he doesn't like dry cat food anymore, he only wants gooshie food. He just threw a full bowl of dry food off the table onto the floor. When I went to see what was going on he just looked at me and said "meow". Meanwhile Jack cleaned up the food on the floor, he's never one to waste anything edible. I grabbed Gremie's dish and put some more food in it, just a little. He pushed it off the table again.
He is now crying because I refused to give him more gooshie food and the dry food bowl is still empty. I'll wait awhile and give some more later, maybe he'll eat it then.

Eli has been weird about food lately as well. He will cry that his bowl is empty. I put a few kibbles in..he looks at me and cries...obviously not what he wanted! And he's been leaving some gooshy food to nom later in the morning, which he never did before...he has me well trained!


I stopped at the store and picked up a small bag of the cheap store brand cat food. Gremie is eating like he's been starved. Tomorrow I'll mix it with some of the good stuff to get him back on track.

Eli has been a real comfort this weekend. I finally have him convinced that he can go nap, and I will be careful on the stairs. :) Dr. NotsoTInyCat! He gets to see the Vet on Wednesday for his rabies shot, and I need to buy Revolution for him. Expensive, but worth it.

IMHO, as with any congenital condition, while it is certainly possible and perhaps to be expected, it is not an absolute - Dragon too, has a heart murmur, which he was diagnosed with at the tender age of 10 weeks. Thankfully it has not affected him.

(I remember I took him to the vet a few years ago for his shots, and my regular doc was on vacation, and her replacement informed me of the fact - I looked him straight in the eye and said yeah, I know it runs in the family. I have one, as well as my mother and my niece. I let him look at me like the cat pictured below for a minute before I cracked up laughing. And yes we all really do have a murmur.)

I didn't know till the next day... did some backtracking and found where she originated.. other folks had taken in kitties like her.. most had passed on.. vet said birth defect, and this would have happened sooner or later.. some are destined to go early..it was her time to cross the bridge, and I miss her greatly but I am fortunate that I got to enjoy her for the time we had together.

One day a Bandit came,
Covered in fur,
He called my name.

Stole my heart.
Arrowed in,
 Like a dart.

A tiny thief
All that was mine,
Now is thine.

Now,on silent paws,
He pads across the room.
Hops up beside me, grooms.

Makes his way,
Bids me  stay.

Sly purring beast!
Time to serve his feast.

When into bed I fall,
Takes no time at all,

He claims his place,
Do not move,
Else fall from grace.

He is lord of his domain,
His minion I remain.

Can you rub the gum above the tooth with clove, like you do with hoomans? I think my friend could get her finger in Shadows mouth...without losing it. I said I would ask the Caturdites...


My Tola girl had this. One of her fangs was getting longer than the others. Turned out she had something wrong in her gums - when they removed the tooth, they said a bunch of pus came out (yuck). She is SO much happier without the tooth now, with a healthy mouth. They may need to look into getting it removed.

Based on my past experience, it's broken. You can go to a doc, but all they are gonna do is tape it up, tell you to stay off it, elevate it, take OTC pain killers, and charge you a ton of $$ for what amounts to 8" of first aid tape. If you insist on rx painkillers, you will probably get a script for 800mg motrin - so you could just take 4 generic brand advils and save the cost. Feel better!

RadicalEd: Hey Caturday folk! I have some kitty food questions I hope someone might have some good recommendations for.

One - I want to get a bowl for food that helps slow them down eating. One cat scarfs his food, which does result in some untimely piles on the carpet sometimes. Can anyone recommend one? I didn't see many at all when I went searching.

Two - A water bowl. I've been looking at getting one of the auto-water bowls, maybe with a waterfall, or moving water, etc. Does anyone have a brand they prefer? I was reading the reviews on Amazon, and its either they're too hard to take apart, too hard to clear, too big, broke easily, etc, etc. One didn't stand out more than the rest, so I was wondering if people used them here and could give some good feedback.

And Ivan, showing off his belly:

I got these Link from Drs Foster & Smith website for my boy kitties, but it didn't work for my ex-feral girl kitty.  She would still scarf down a huge amount of food and hork up a huge pile of food on the carpet.  I feed her canned food in the bathroom and give the boys the dry food in their special bowls in the kitchen. She is 2 1/2 and still eats amazingly fast, so I think this will have to be a pretty permanent situation with her. I keep hoping she will grow out of it.


There is also another dish that looks promising Link I don't use the automatic water bowls. I use a 4 cup clear measuring cup for my kitties, and wash it out each evening. I tried the Drinkwell with my old kitties, but they didn't like it very much so I gave it to my sister for her cats. I have been thinking about trying one of the stainless steel ones though for my clowder.
Oh yeah........I also discovered a little wonder tool for cleaning up all of the cat-food spots on my carpet. It is called a Spot-Bot and I found it at Walmart for approximately $130 something.

I was walking between my grandma's house in Kirstiansand and a guy's house I had made friends with the previous summer (his English was nearly perfect!) when two ravens swooped right past me - one on each side of me - and then perched on a tree right next to his house, making a hell of a racket. Ravens going past me while I'm in Norway, getting ready to plot shenanigans with a local and his friends? And the Ravens are "talking"? Whaaaa? AWESOME! Well, let's just say I was very excited. Told the dude as soon as he answered the door "Dude! DUUUUDE!!! Two ravens just went by me and are hanging out right by your house! How cool is that?!" He looked at me like I was insane. Some Norwegian he is. (of course, he probably saw them all the time...)

riding a hoverboard,, but without the hoverboard. Just get up to speed and lift my feet, and I'm off!



Same here! Some of my favorite dreams are when I'm at college and facing long staircases going down, and I just up and DO this, and I feel SO cool and walk away all nonchalant like it's no thang. I wake up from those and think "I can do that!" but nope. I can't.  :(

StranahansBarracuda: I just got a Subaru with CVT and it does take a bit of getting used to. I do a lot of coasting/hypermile type driving with my old hoopty and I have to adjust my driving style when I switch vehicles. It also sounds different; less of a revving noise more of a winding up sound..


Yeah...It revs high at first from a dead stop, then as you pick up speed the rpms drop??? It's counter-intuitive but in reality it's extremely efficient. I can get my Murano up to ~22mpg/city if I just go light on the pedal. It's advertised at 18/city.

They're really simple too...This is just about all there is to a cvt.

SkerriNinja: [i138.photobucket.com image 357x477]
We got a new kitty. His name is Raven. We adopted him (yay, shelter kitties!) the day after the Ravens won the Super Bowl. Hubby (non-kitty person that he is) said this was The One. And when they said that he was born 6-8 month ago, Hubby figured out to the exact date that dear Raven was born on the first day of Ravens training camp. So here he is, and he is TOTALLY Hubby's kitty. I have a sweet picture of Raven on Hubby's shoulder on the way to the vet, but Hubby is not a fan of showing his face on random interwebz pages.


Raven (the sole female ninja from the Oreo Ninja Clowder) approves and sends a headbump, ear sniff, and butt swat.

She takes her name from the way she would sit on my shoulder  when she was tinyand tell me things ...
like Odin's ravens Hugin and Munin (waves at RWDA).

Neither of those names really fit her however, so I asked her how she felt about generic 'Raven'.
She thought it was acceptable...and I SWEAR that it wasn't until a week later that I remembered that 'raven' could be a synonym for 'black'.

I am not speaking to photobucket anymore or I'd post a pic...

reigning.cats.and.dogs: lilyspad: DoomsDayAardvark: lilyspad: DoomsDayAardvark: lilyspad: DoomsDayAardvark: I got another visit from Lindsay yesterday.  It was my job to pick her up from the vet (and pay) after her spay surgery.  She seems to be recovering well (since she did nothing but climb on me for the hour I sat with her in the bathroom.

Ooooh! Are you going to be a Ninja??? :D j/k. Very cool!

I started karate when I was 8.  I'm 32 now, and haven't really been all that active with it the last few years. This was my first competition since ... oh probably 2004.  I go to that tournament every year, and usually just judge / referee.  Last year I told myself that I should compete.  So I did.  And I lost.  But that's OK, I had fun.

No...you didn't "lose". You competed and did very well! That's always something to be proud of!

What she said!  Besides, those trophies are overrated.  You get one and then you focus on keeping your ranking, as opposed to improving, and then someone has to dust the damn thing(s)...  Don't even get me started on how easily they break!  (A friend tripped and broke one of my ex's trophies - he had a flipping cow!)


One of the things I really like about my karate group (which, incidentally, is a non-profit) is our handling of trophies.  All the trophies we give out at our tournaments are donated -- usually by the people who won them previously.  We remove the plaques and replace them.  We only give trophies to kids, and the rule usually goes, smallest kid, biggest trophies. It's fun to see a kid's face light up when you hand him a trophy that's almost as tall as he is.

Tape it to it's neighbor(s).  That is what the doc will do as long as it isn't dislocated.  If it is dislocated, he will put it back into alignment, then tape it to it's neighbor(s).

Kitty bowls should be shallow or flat, but I saw in a local pet store an insert you can put in to help reduce how fast a pup eats.  Could work for the kitty.  Or you could just add golf balls in the bowl - that's supposed to work to slow them down - again, for pups, YMMV.

As for water bowls, I have used both a Drinkwell (very hard to take apart and clean properly) and a Raindrop, which is what my zoo currently use.  The Drinkwell had more of a 'waterfall' effect, but all the critters seemed to like them both equally.  I will say that the Raindrop is very easy to take apart for cleaning, it is all (except the filter, motor and cord) dishwasher safe, and is much quieter!

It's hard to know without seeing it but if it's still swollen by Monday, I'd check with the doc.


I agree....ice it as much as you can.  If it hurts too much when you flex it, tape a small part of a popsicle stick on the bottom of the toe.  Poor Honey!  HUGS!

I would go to a dr. to see if it's broken. I've broken toes before and they are pretty easy to deal with. (tape two together) but a big toe harder to deal with and the bones might have to be set if they are broken.Also the circulation could be screwed up and that could cause problems.
I'm not a medical person I only know what I've been thru although I do have a degree in archaeology so if the bones are old enough I could tell you the problem.

I do not know if there is an anti-scarf bowl out there..but a flat saucer, with the food mashed flat might help. They would have to work a bit harder for the food...i have a faucet that Eli prefers..in the mean time..use a ceramic bowl, and refill frequently..the ceramic will keep the water colder longer...I know quite a few people who keep filtered water in the fridge and fill bowl with that.

Fark-N-Noodle: John Buck 41: Well, I told you folks that we were going car-shopping on Tuesday. Went to our bank. They wouldn't do a thing for us til we came back with a vehicle we had picked out. I told them I wasn't thrilled about spending all day kicking tires and then getting turned down for a loan. So we left and went to a local Toyota dealership. Cut to the chase---we ended up driving away with a 2013 Toyota Corolla w/0% financing. We got a modest break because I work for a Toyota supplier and also saved some $$ by choosing a 5 speed manual in lieu of an automatic transmission.

First NEW car I bought since 1988.

Pinched nerve? Possibly a stroke? Is he continent? - which might indicate if he is paralyzed or has other issues.

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)

I used to be able to do this. I afraid if I tried it now I'd end up with my shin bones protruding from my abdomen.

Oddly enough, "surfing" down stairs is a commonly recurring element in my dreams.
Another recurring element is like from one of the "Back To the Future" movies where it's like I'm
riding a hoverboard,, but without the hoverboard. Just get up to speed and lift my feet, and I'm off!

I've often wondered what significance they portray.

And a cat...

Probably just means that you're finally getting some decent sleep. :o)

professional_vampire: Thank Ceiling Cat for Caturday!!! We have overachieving crazy people here in Jersey - the full moon isn't until Monday!

Tigerose - stair skiing is never a good idea. At least yours was an accident - my feet are screaming at me right now after 7.77 miles of walking between work and the treadmill today.

tigerose: While it is possible to ski down the stairs on your shin and calf,I do not recommend it. It hurts. And then you have to sit with ice, and it is too cold out there for that! Brrr!


When I was first learning Telemark skiing, I tried to do it on my butt because I was not used to the technique and kept falling down my butt seems to totally dig skiing. That hurt, but I'm sure not nearly as bad as your skiing adventure. So don't do that again, mmmmkay?

lilyspad: lilyspad: Woot!!! I haz Weeners!!! HAPPY CATURDAY!!!! :D

Okay...I DID NOT TYPE WEENERS!  Stoopid correction thingy!


Mmmmhhmmm. Totally gonna buy that. ;-p

Here's a pic of Grumpy's brother, Pokey, who has the same medical problems that she has and also usually looks fairly grumpy. He's so amused by Lily's weeners, he's actually smiling! Or maybe he's just happy we haz a Caturday!
