tigerose: predle ugh, isn't it time for the snow to go away?? I know I am tired of it here
tigerose: I heard somewhere that you aren't a rider until you've fallen off at least 7 times...gads, that mean's I'll be a rider if I fall off 3 more times?
predle: tigerose: I heard somewhere that you aren't a rider until you've fallen off at least 7 times...gads, that mean's I'll be a rider if I fall off 3 more times?I guess that means I'm a rider at least 2 or 3 times over. This pretty girl was my schizoid Arab who put me in the dust often[predle576.smugmug.com image 788x600]
tigerose: maynerdkitty I thought you said your son wasn't hurt? What did he do to his shoulder? And Ow! tell him he has my sympathies..I heard somewhere that you aren't a rider until you've fallen off at least 7 times...gads, that mean's I'll be a rider if I fall off 3 more times? I think I'll do without!I think you are going to have to go out and build him the pen. Especially if his shoulder isnt happy with him. So glad the new kitteh is getting along with you and your crew. Good on your son and daughter in law for bringing him out. Purrhaps they will find a new kitteh in need of a home!I'm going on a field trip tomorrow..an "underground railroad" experience...it is supposed to rain! Good thing I get to go home after the trip and dry off! :)
spinach gunk: So I was just sitting there, being a dog, minding my own business...[spinachgunk.smugmug.com image 450x600]And then I got patted! And it was good.[spinachgunk.smugmug.com image 450x600]Buddy update: Our baby boy seems to have recovered just fine from his little trip to the dentist last week. He has almost forgiven me for forcibly squirting horrible shiat-tasting antibiotics down his throat as a precautionary measure twice a day for five days, and for my being a wound-up worrywart. He's still not thrilled about crunchy treats, but will eat them if I break them into tiny pieces. He's still not thrilled about his regular food either, but we noticed that he has no problem getting excited about people food. The obvious smacked us upside the head. Maybe he was just getting sick of the old food and perhaps would like to try something different? So simple it just might work? Spent an afternoon doing dog food research online, then off to the pet food store!I dreaded experimenting with new food, but much to my surprise we found a couple things that he actually likes, almost right away! And seem to agree with him so far! He will eat all his meals without delay when combined with either "savory chicken stew" or "organic New Zealand lamb tripe" (only one of which I can dish up without gagging, guess which one, lol)! Who knew? Hopefully the novelty won't wear off anytime soon. He seemed to feel quite good earlier today, he told off the neighbour's cat, and got goofy & playful after supper, both of which he hasn't done in a while. Our sweet little old fart has some life left in him yet! Thanks again for all the good wishes last Caturday, I think they really helped. He still seems a little tired and slow, but he is looking happier now, and that's a very good start. :)Sending hugs and love and healing wishes to all the other kitties and humans needing them this Caturday... seems like quite a few this week... huge long thread and I can't remember all the ...
maynerdkitty: predle: This will probably be the view from that window tomorrow[predle576.smugmug.com image 720x600]The weather icon on my homepage shows 92 and cloudy tomorrow. I hate being cold but I will have to invest in an air conditioner at some point this summer.And I got pictures of my new kitty!Meet Max:[farm9.staticflickr.com image 500x282]He was my son and daughter in laws cat. My son convinced her to adopt a kitty so they found one that a family could no longer keep. He came from a house that had more than one kitty and he is declawed. they think he is about 15.The kids thought he was just old and sweet as he would lay around and be a cuddle bug. When I moved in with my kitties he changed. He began to jump and run and play with them. He would get high with Li-Ion and he taught Tom to sit with people and cuddle. When I moved out to the farm with my kitties he walked around crying and looking for his friends.My daughter in law cried when she saw how sad he was, and after a week. they came out to visit and brought Max with them. He seems happy enough now but is wary of Fiona. Tom and Li-Ion are cool with the dog so I am sure Max will be too. Although Fiona keeps trying to sniff the new kitty and it keeps moving. she is not really chasing him but I toss her outside when it happens. She will learn to ignore the new kitty just to stay in the house.
tigerose: akimbotoo Yep, would not be able to do the tripe thing either..eww! I feed Eli the Friskies Prime Fillet because a)he likes it. b)it doesn't make me want to hurl when I open the can..c)I can get the 24 can box at the local pet store. Saves me from having to apologize to him for no gooshie food...Speaking of gooshie fud..anyone know of a brand called Sheba? I got a freebie sample in the mail. One of those small cans...Eli ate it..I was thinking for when we go on vacation, that way there would not be any "old" food around...
maynerdkitty: She is beautiful, I love a flea bit grey. I have never been fond of Arabs though, they are pretty to look at but I don't seem to get along with any that I have met. Not sure why.

NotSoNiceBunny: Ack. Hubby is now mostly healthy, barring some dental things he just found out. Now Mia is sick and we're waiting for the results of testing. She's on some anti-nausea and anti-runs meds, that we can crush and sprinkle over her food. Waiting to see if Felix also gets sick, and hoping the answer is 'no.'Trying to wrap up filing my federal taxes. Gods, what a pain.Wading through all the legalese on the various forms trying to figure out terms that are clear to the IRS but totally not clear to me... *sigh*On the other hand, it's a beautiful day outside and I'm thinking I should go enjoy it. Maybe wait to do the taxes until my headache is gone...
