And this is Emma playing in my dirty laundry.  Notice the extremely ignored scratching post in the corner.

I've been trying to add pictures for almost two years.  So glad I can now.  Which I guess means I'll be posting more.

NotSoNiceBunny Sorry to hear your husband is back in the hospital , I remember when my Dad had an appendectomy and things seemed to take forever to get straightened out. Hopefully he is on the mend now and you need to take care of yourself as well.

She's really tiny too.  She's at least 3+ years old (they had her at the shelter for at least one year, but she never grew past this size, and I've had her for two).  She tolerates me, I guess.

quantum_jellyroll: LASIX!!!
The nurse just gave me LASIX at 11pm!!!

They better be damn quick with the bedpan then, huh?

That's not the best part. They gave me one of those "quart jug" urinals. The very first time I got my oxygen line caught in the handle and had it swinging around and baptized my bed and pillows. On the plus side, my nurse tonight is sweet as can be and brought me some soup and 2 types of sherbet!

You're being SPOILED!

[www.ntrw.org image 600x823]

so am I, but I gotta do the spoiling myself


What,s the chance that the nurse is a Caturdayer.....

Eugoogoolizer: It's reassuring to read stories like this. A cat saving lives is a rare thing. If I didn't know better I'd suspect mine is a actively trying to end me...probably just my imagination


Interpretation..  and keep in mind that your cat knows where the food comes from...

Good Meowning Everybuddy! My fellow Caturdayians, today I must finally put my little slipper clad foot down and insist that NO ONE ELSE IS ALLOWED TO BE SICKLY! If this keeps up, some day we're going to have a massive Caturday party and we'll all show up in hospital gowns. I really, really don't want to see most of your asses. Though I imagine it would be the most incredibly cute, yet warped, game of "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" EVAR.

Not your imagination at all. Mine does the same thing. When my potentially homicidal, beloved, completely insane cat saved my life in January, it was by knocking me to the ground leading to a trip to the ER where they discovered my anemia was out of control and I got my life saving blood transfusions. She usually waits until I'm on the stairs to knock me over, so now I know she wants to send me to the big crate in the sky but also that I'm not allowed to die unless it is at her paws.

Also, here's a baby koala, for no particular reason at all.

It appears that my plan worked.. not working today, but I will be out and around.. restocking the fridge, doing laundry etc.. definitely better....  hope the others also can be lucky .. I keep thinking of QJ with his hands taped to the bed rails.. only doctors are supposed to do 'exploratories'.... :o)

Eli the Bitey came to wake me this morning, per usual. However, the unusual thing about it was that his back leg seemed to have a muscle spasm. As in it shook for a second or two, and his looked scared. (biiig eyes). I might have to put on my gauntlets and check his leg for bites....

That's funny you should say that. Pickle just showed up at our door one morning meowing like "ok, I'm ready for dinner now" we initially thought she was still very young on account of her size (about half that of a regular size feline) but she hasn't put on any weight or grown at all. That was about 2 years back too. I'd say she's easily the runt of the litter. We looked around, put up ads and checked with the shelter but she had no collar, identifying marks, tattoos or chips and no one seemed to be looking for her so we kept her. Now she's taken over the house like she built it with her own two paws and allows us to live there with her.

I have Nora trained to use her scratch pad before I feed her. This is the only time she ever uses it.

Here she faces off against a stranger dog. You better believe I was holding onto the dog's collar.

I feed Nora from old CVS bottles, which she licks or bats around until empty. The dog watched for a while but just didn't get it...

That's what worries me. As picky as she is, regular old cat food is probably way below her standards and I'm just making her angrier every time I fill the bowl. Hence the assassination attempts.

Morning! Hope everyone (who isn't in hospitals) slept well! No offense QJ, but from experience, hospitals are NOT good places to try to sleep!! I hope you feel better today now that you have "drained" some..... :D

NotSoNiceBunny....so very sorry that hubby is having complications! I hope you BOTH heal soon!
Corruptedbudgie.... I think the cat likes the smell of your shampoo!!! :D
Jesus FarkingChrist...HAI EMMA!!!!

Sorry if I forgot anyone! I think we all need to get together and get our good Caturday Karma back in place!!!! Too many sicks and passings this week!!!! Now, back to Caturday.....

Given that I've had a week of horribly interrupted sleep thanks to my kitties, I now present to you,  Go the fark to sleep for cats (with apologies to Adam Mansbach)

The humans are nestled in bed right now,

the dogs are curled up in their beds

There's plenty of room in this bed for you

Please go the fark to sleep

The squirrels are all snoozing in trees, cat

The birds are fluffed up in their nests

I'll even scoot over a bit to make room

just go to the fark to sleep

You don't need to walk on the end table

You don't need to walk over me.

There are numerous cuddly places for you

pick a place and sleep

We have to get up in the morning

we can't nap for most of the day

you've been walking on me for an hour

please go the fark to sleep

I don't know why you are meowing

there's nothing out there I swear

please don't paw at the window right now

I'm going to pull out my hair.

All human children are sleeping

I have to get up in 2 hours

You're making me reconsider

not locking you in the shower

I'm sorry I woke and shifted position

because you curled up on my butt

there's still plenty of room for you to swirl

You only take up one square foot

If you sleep on the back of my knees

it means i can't feel my feet.

I'm sorry I twitched and I scared you

now go the fark to sleep

Please don't claw at the blanket

it makes the most horrible sound

Your purring while stepping on kidneys

is disturbing all around

If I wake up I have to try not to

attend to my needs and go pee

because if I do you will wake up too

and won't go the fark back to sleep.

I thought cats were supposed to be stoic

and not care about humans one bit

but you always want to be around us

and as such as I tend to wake up stiff

I guess the good news is the following

If I ever do have my own child

I'll be totally used to wee hour interruptions

If I manage to stay sane that long

It's not that I don't still love you

or appreciate you wanting to be close

but for the love of pete

if i don't get some sleep

I'll bang my head into a wall.

Most pleased to see Emma who owns Jesus Farking Christ at ft of Lucky Pg 7, just above where I now type! At last!  He's been promising a foto of her furr-ever!  She also now owns the big Japanese kitty bowl, shown a bit below, for her own personal fressing container.

Provided by gremlin1 in Dec past.  B'lieve I dubbed in  Good Meowning.  Still haven't fixed that other one as Gd Moanday Meowning yet --

Had catptioned into this one, which Jesus Farking Christ  took a fancy to. In exchange for a contribution to DoomsDayAardvark's Kayak for a Cureeffort last year, JFC received this bowl & one of the smaller, deeper ones.  AlienDandelion has received a smaller, deeper as well & I retain the last of the mis-matched set found at TJMaxx  rather Ago.
Wish to snatch several  pix from this page, mayhap before moving furrther on.

professional_vampire: Happy Caturday, everybuddy! Went out this evening and spent another $200 or so on backpacking equipment. Why did I have to pick such an expensive new obsession?!?


I was going to go hiking today, but woke up with my back hurting too much to want to trek around for 15 miles! I need a new backpack too.

As for everyone and their jobs, I'm with you. I think I may give notice on Monday - the job is completely not what it was advertised and keeps getting worse, not to mention the toxic culture and negative atmosphere. I'm lucky I can go to the bathroom without permission, because I sure as hell can't do anything else without it (seriously, as in, can't even send an email without prior confirmation about six times).

But it's the kitties that make it better when I get home!

I remember Jeff Foxworthy saying something like if you hear a cat doing that in the night, you'd better put slippers on if you get out of bed to use the restroom, because nothing wakes you up faster than stepping in cat vomit in your bare feet.

I was about to throw in a snarky comment about feral children (which they all are, ya know), then "different strokes for different folks" popped into my mind. So great minds think alike, but so do kitteh infested minds.
