I think someone was taking out the trash - you may notice that we have fewer posts than there were before.

Seems to me the last time I saw that behavior was when some posts were deleted
and the counters had to reset.

Yep!

laulaja: Tnx lilys for welcoming Dezilith. Wonder if Dezilith  means thank you for letting me lurk and live vicariously through all of you. Sted of precariously?


I dunno, if QJ's had hushpuppies it could be rather perilous in here. :)


Real Women Drink Akvavit: I miss my friends who allegedly had ferrets. They moved out of state, so I don't get to go ferret bowling across their carpet anymore. :'-( The ferrets LOVED ferret bowling. They allegedly had three and I dunno about you, but if I were keeping three hyper ferrets (though that is totally illegal in my state) they'd have their own room full of toys and large tubing to scamper through and hidey holes and swings and stuff, too.

Allegedly.

/*waves in case they're lurking*
//*gives Macadamia a big ol' smooch!*


IIRC, while it's illegal to purchase ferrets in CA, I think it's fine to own them. I keep forgetting to go look that up to be sure... We had them in a previous apartment (they allowed caged animals but not cats, so fine, we got some INTERESTING caged animals!), and nobody batted an eye. Several friends and friends-of have also had the goofy little beasties, and the way I figure it, if I can buy ferret kibble, toys, and treats at the local pet store how illegal can they be? :)

/not again
//at least until I own my own home and can spend more time at said home with them

Been a pretty good week so far; might have a new apartment in a few weeks, the weather has gotten warm and sunny (got up to 75 today, hurrah!), I'm doing well in my classes, and the boys are being adorkable because it's nice outside. Speaking of nice outside, a quick Caturday CSS: I was doing my walk today (power walk with weights for an hour, good stuff) when on my way back to the house around the lake some guy was playing frisbee with his dogs. One of them had climbed out of the lake, but instead of running to him, he saw me and went "OMG, NEW FRIEND! :D" and galloped over, nearly body-checked me, and bapped me with the frisbee. The polite thing to do is to take said frisbee and throw it, but he decided that tug-of-war was WAY more fun. It's a strange thing to be 5'7 and 175 yet get tugged about by a dog about half of that weight. (Found out that he's a GSD-and-something-huge-mix, he was small for his lineage!) His owner was embarrassed and apologized for wet-dog-on-running-pants, but I didn't mind, I was almost done and had laundry to do anyway. I was finally able to get the frisbee free and threw it for him for a few minutes. If he was happy before, he was simply ecstatic afterward. "New friend who throws frisbee into lake? OMG YAY!!" That made my afternoon, and I think it did the dog's and his owner's as well.

And now, cats! Pardon the grainy quality, the light was weird and my phone isn't THAT clever.

Time to finish dinner (ravioli and homemade sauce, NOM) and get back to studying for class. *Flees for a bit.*

Debby7813: tigerose: Happenstance

I went to buy cat food.
A flat of cans,
In the form my cat likes.

And there,
I found two shelter cats.
Depressed.

No longer looking to interact.
Ignoring their toys.
Sad.

Their sorrow
Radiates.

They no longer believe,
No hope.

They are not kittens.
They are so handsome,

It makes me weep.

I want to put on their cages a sign,
"Take me home,
I am for you!"

One surrendered  cat speaks.
I am older, wiser,
I know what comfort a lap holds.

I know how to make you laugh,
Lift your spirits.

My fur is thick.
I can hold your tears.

I want to be with you.
No other will do.
Take a chance,
Take me home.

Into your heart.
There I will dwell.
All the days of my life.

And at the end of my days,
I will keep you in my heart,
Cherish you in my soul,
And rejoice.

Oh, man, this got me weepy. I volunteer for a local shelter up at the nearby Petsmart, and the older cats that obviously had homes at one time are the saddest. And they tend to stay the longest. *excuse me while I go find a tissue*


I was just thinking about that today. Kitten season is starting, I have 5 kittens not even old enough to leave and a dozen people who want them. I have several dozen adult cats, and nobody who wants them. The adults move out so slowly, perfectly good, healthy, sweet, friendly adult cats, sitting there waiting every day. People just want what's young and cute whether it be a human or animal companion.

I have no more room left to take in any more adult cats, so they'll wind up dead in the shelter because everyone wants kittens instead. What a shame.

I think I'm going to print this out and hang it in the cat room at Petco where Lilly is waiting for a new family. She was found in a parking lot, all dirty and scared. Now  she's just sad, she doesn't want to be there. But all the kittens are getting adopted and nobody looks at her.

I don't know why I can't get any photos from Flickr to post here any more and I give up trying,  so if you want to see sad Lilly, click on the link.

Fark is changing the way you post, if you click on the Use HTML Buttons (above to the right), that will bring up the old way. I haven't had much luck using Flickr with the link picture button (just left of the ?) and am thinking of joining the mass migration to smugmug.

Good morning folks,
So I get up this morning and I hear a lot of commotion in the laundry room, sounded like Tom playing with his live trap. A few minutes later I see him run out with this:

/Sorry it's blurry, this camera sucks
//and I was dodging the mouse
///He kept batting it towards me, ewww

Before I left the farm last night I got a picture of the roof top kitties, I thought it was Cassie at first, then she stepped out further and I saw it was Forrest! She never go outside, She and Flower were enjoying the sunset.
