So where can I get a lion hat for my cats? I tried chasing Ms Landers down on the internet with no luck. I want the same hat that the cat in the first image is wearing, Desi would look just like a lion with it!

Greetings all... TGIC !!.. or.... Yay ! Caturday at last.... Fred is home.. had a UTI... and told me about it.. all fixed up now, on a new food regiment..  picked him up from the vet yesterday evening.. they brought him out in the carrier and all you could see was his butt.. put the carrier in the car, said his name and he turned around and the motor started... first action after being released at home from the carrier was to flop on his back for a belly rub.... after which he demonstrated that he could now pee.... hopefully the new food will prevent a reoccurance....

Yay for Caturday! Rough week in a few spots, but boy, do those spots keep coming back, it seems. Ugh! There wasn't even any bathing of cats involved. Yet.

GoGo Beastie totally wants a princess crown hat so she can bury it in her litter box with all the other stuff I buy her she does not like. Or maybe she really likes all the stuff I buy her and the litter box is like the cat version of a safety deposit box. Who knows? Well, besides the cat, of course.

The knitting thing isn't really an option, I don't know anyone who does knit anymore. My mom did when we were kids but she's in her 80's now. I can just imagine the conversation. "Mom, I need you to knit a lion hat for Desi...., no, stop laughing, really, I mean it!"

I've been digging harder tonight and I think I found her site on Etsy. She's limiting sales to 30-50 hats per week, and she lists them on Sunday. I'll check back then and see what I can find. Should I post the link, or should I keep it sorta quiet? I can always email it to someone who wants it (EIP, TF only, at least I hope it is, I just changed it tonight!). I won't be around to see this thread until Sunday, the Mrs and I are headed off to Toronto for a long weekend starting tomorrow morning!

Corporate finally made the official announcement yesterday. It looks the the only change for us is we'll be getting a new CIO which we'll share with another site. Our current CIO will move on to oversee three other sites. Other than that our entire crew is safe...for now.

There are at least 60 in I.T. throughout the organization that have until July 1st to find another position, otherwise that's when they'll get their severance. I know 4 of them so far.

That said....I still have to go to Mordor in the morning. Goodnight everyone.

His Presentation scores should be awesome ... (Pres is 1 of 4 scoring categories)
---A man went into the pet shop. "I am playing Long John Silver in the local amateur dramatic societies version of Treasure Island and need a parrot to sit on my shoulder," he said.
"I don't have any parrots at the moment, but you wouldn't want a real parrot for that. It would squawk in all the wrong places, shiat on your shoulder and generally be a nuisance. What you need is a stuffed parrot. Just as realistic and easily controlled."
"I'm not sure a stuffed parrot would be okay," said the customer. "I do want this performance to be as realistic as possible."
"I am sure a stuffed parrot would be fine," said the pet shop owner. "I have one at home. I'll bring it in and if you come back on Thursday, you can have it."
"Sorry," said the customer, "I can't make it on Thursday. That's the day I'm having my leg cut off."

Here's the url to her Etsy shop:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/biatchknits


It looks like there are more than one link to lion hats on Etsy, the article seems to have stolen pictures from both. The one I found leads to the maker of the hat in the first picture in the article. I doubt I'll be able to keep this a secret until after I order one so I guess I'll post it. Nestanest has the picture used at the top of the article, biatchknits (yes, I know the filters will get that) leads to the second one pictured. I like the first, it looks much more lionlike, biatchknits looks like an out of control rasta-cat

G'night all, other than a quick check-in tomorrow morning I'll be gone until Sunday. The cats are going to hate us. Snuffers has been left at home during vacations, this will be the other 3's first time by themselves overnight. Nick (the cat whisperer) will be stopping over to feed them and scratch them but this will be the first time Desi, Jack and Cisco will be home alone overnight.... Oh Noes, what are we doing????

I promised a FB friend I'd share on the Fark Caturday thread the stuff she posted this week on the FB Caturday page so more people have the chance to comment.

First a question:  Anybody with experience in cat toilet training? Pros and cons? Thanks

And a request for homing help:  Hello I have 7 kittens that need new good awesome homes! They are about 21 days, in a couple of weeks they may be ready to go! Please re post so we can help them get adopted!

Aaaannnddd a pic of the cute little ones she's trying to find homes for:

Hai, folks! Good to see everyone. Haven't been gone 24 hours yet and I miss my Cracker Jack! I keep expecting him to jump up on the bed with me. Oh, well - I'm so tired I'll probably pass out in 2.3 seconds and I'll only be away from my kitteh until Monday. Just wanted to check in and say hi. Good night.

Good Meowning!Eli just barfed twice. Barely moistened dry food....at least he waited until I'd had some coffee first. Poor guy. He has gone back upstairs, presumable to curl up again. He did not want me to get up today. :) A brisk morning.

No, I didn't take it.  The last time I saw Devils Tower was so long ago that I didn't even have a digital camera.  I escaped from Wyoming in 1975 and avoid going up there. In my opinion they should move the few people who live there out, put a fence around the entire state and make it a wildlife refuge.

I can relate. If you showed me a map of the east coast I could pick out New York and Pennsylvania but that's about it.

Wyoming is the vast wasteland between the extremely cool states of Colorado and Montana. Making it a refuge would be good for bison, wolves and the most endangered species in the US, the black footed ferret,

Eli just gifted me with a nose to nose snuggle..While I scritched the back of his neck. (that part under the collar)..and he didn't offer to nip my nose either! :)
 
2013-05-17 10:18:26 AM  
I just gave Eli his waaay overdue dose of Revolution. It works well for him, no worms, mites, fleas etc..and given that he's been hunting like crazy...a good investment. Anyway, I decided to call Pfizer to complain about the smell of the product. The alcohol scent is really strong, and it freaks the Fark out of Eli..so I called and asked them if anyone had thought of adding a lavender scent, or even a catnip scent to the product to mask the alcohol. I only got transferred once! I dunno if they thought I was nuts or not, but at least they were polite!

And I found out the name of the animal care division is now Zoetis. And there might be programs for 501(c) charitable organizations..(ask the vet)...

D'aawwww...
Biscuit faceTM the Lion Face! How cool would he look if you saved his fur from the next 'haircut' and made a mane for him outta THAT?

OlderGuy: Greetings all... TGIC !!.. or.... Yay ! Caturday at last.... Fred is home.. had a UTI... and told me about it.. all fixed up now, on a new food regiment..  picked him up from the vet yesterday evening.. they brought him out in the carrier and all you could see was his butt.. put the carrier in the car, said his name and he turned around and the motor started... first action after being released at home from the carrier was to flop on his back for a belly rub.... after which he demonstrated that he could now pee.... hopefully the new food will prevent a reoccurance....


You GO, Fred!
Had a urinary issue back in the day with my old Alpha cat Misha. After getting that cleared up,
I changed his food (from 'commercial' to Diamond Active cat) and he never had problems of that sort again.
You're probably on the right track.

lilyspad:
[i.imgur.com image 464x640]*Alice and Dorothy having tea*
Now that just cracked me up. Good start to the day...Thank you, lilyspad!

The clowder got their Cestex the other day (anti-tapeworm medicine recommended for hunters who eat what they kill)...and took that as permission to bring their prizes inside for consumption.
Heard 'crunch crunch crunch' but thought D'Artagnan had just brought a mouthful of kibble out into the living room for consumption (he does this sometimes). WRONG...found bits of grey down feathers...feathers, and nothing more (so far...).
He just checked in with me...unusual for this time of day (morning). Seems he's got some grease on his ear...and he knows where to go when he's got stuff he can't attend to by himself...
"MOMMEEEEE!"

He didn't fuss at ALL when I washed his ear for him...just purred and cooperated.
I keep telling people...that boy is scary-smart.
 
2013-05-17 11:12:20 AM  
 syzygy whizz of course he knows where to take himself when he needs help! And tell him to stop checking out car engines, you have a warmer and safer lap! :)

Gave Eli his Revolution, which he hates because of the alcohol carrier. I think..his tummy is unhappy this morning, so he is on my watch list. He did eat a bit of gooshy food this morning. I think he wants to go outside and nom some grass. But he has to wait for the mail! poor kitteh!

Major arthritis attack which just has to run its course. Probably brought on by stress/too much physical activity.

yobbery: John Buck 41: Sorry to hear about your (and your family's) week. Is your Mom going to be ok?

Not life-threatening but she has been in a lotta pain. Not sleeping well, hard to get out of a chair/bed. Percocets help.


Howdy John, sorry to hear you're in a rough place.

The only animal that I dressed up was Belle. She had skin allergies in the spring and summer and would chew herself raw. After trying all kinds of medications and topical cures from the Vet, I grabbed an old shirt and put it on just to block her from scratching. It worked no more scratching or chewing and when she wanted to go out she would grab her shirt and bring it to me to put it on. The Vet thought it looked kinda funny but it worked.

I was playing on the ipad last night...newly purchased app does cool things!!!

Why yes....I have put clothes on my pets.  I am pretty sure it is a requirement in the House of Heathens.  It all started with a large dog who came to live here in 2003 and a bonnet my Mom made as part of my Little Miss Muffett Halloween costume circa 1965 (Mom saved it...I found it in the trunk that I brought back to Florida that year....and yes, I still have it and yes, there is a picture of me in said costume from 1965).

i112.photobucket.com

She was a natural.

it started before she came to Florida.  This happened in early 2003 when I was up visiting my parents to check on them.  The hat, the scarf and the red cowboy boots belonged to my sister who left them at their house until she could get all her stuff up to Canada.

Oh my gosh that is just solid gold! I have the "Cat" costume (one piece with a zipper up the back) that all of us kids wore. It's some sort of black cotton..must be tungsten, it went thru two boys and a girl and then my kid! It had a separate hood that you could sew cat ears on, or mouse ears...oh, and a one size fits all tail...I made it into a bat costume for my boy, when he was very young..that was before the Guinea Pig costume..I think...and yes, I made all of his costumes...including when he was Captain Kirk...:) ahhh..blackmail fodder!

Waaay back when, our first cat was a black tom. He was scary smart, but died of a cardiac issue. Very nasty, and we got him rehabbed, but he threw a clot and that was kinda all she wrote..Then we had Porky..who was! He was injured and lost an eye, and broke his jaw. I spent a good deal of time feeding him pureed catfud...ew..and then he would shake his head and spray the kitchen..lol..lol...but he was teh awesome. And he was mine. Not planned, but, he knew his own mind. I still miss him, and it's been a good 20 years or more. I feel blessed though. I had a very memorable kitteh!

If they smell like onion, go ahead.  If they don't smell, don't eat them, there is a poisonous look-a-like to onions, but they don't have onion smell.

*Rolls out very large wheel of Smoked Gouda* to go with my Whine! Oh my gosh my knee hurts. Aleve hasn't helped. I took 2 at noon. And yeah, I rode today..but we just walked! Wine is not helping either...this started week or so ago. Sort of woke up with Spock/Horta "The pain".. And this is my good knee! WTF? I hurt it 2 yrs ago. Why is it suddenly throwing a tantrum? I do.not.have time for this! My son graduates in 14 days? Ahhhhh!

My Riktor Pye has the same ghost-locket that Miss Kitty is rockin'...it's only about 12 white hairs, but they show up surprisingly well.
Miss Kitty produced some pretty good-looking offspring...but she's probably a lot happier now that she's spayed.

I have a power massage shower head and I use that on my knee when it really starts to hurt. About 10 or 15 minutes on high impact followed by a heating pad for about 30 minutes. It won't last forever but it will usually get me thru an average day. Or if you have a jacuzzi, that works too.
Hope you find something that works. With any luck at all it will be gone by Graduation time

Dunno if this will help you, but a couple of years ago I shattered my leg and dislocated all the bones in my ankle...the only thing I've found that helps me for the pain and puffiness I still get is a turmeric supplement.  Its a natural anti-inflammatory.

Have you tried an Epsom salts bath? I know, onion belt and all that, but it works. Same for magnesium tablets. You can also get a magnesium oil spray. It really helps me with muscle pain.

If that doesn't work take 2 fingers of Bunnahabhain and call me in the morning.

gremlin1: The only animal that I dressed up was Belle. She had skin allergies in the spring and summer and would chew herself raw. After trying all kinds of medications and topical cures from the Vet, I grabbed an old shirt and put it on just to block her from scratching. It worked no more scratching or chewing and when she wanted to go out she would grab her shirt and bring it to me to put it on. The Vet thought it looked kinda funny but it worked.

And I thought I might share some of my sauteed chicken with onion and garlic, swimming in an alfredo sauce, with morel mushrooms. (re-hydrated from dry). Served with whole wheat/ramp fettuccini. Ramps are like a wild onion/garlic bulb.. And not like the ones that grow in my garden..grr...No idea if they are edible, but I might try..I have enough of them!!!

Hmm..who else could I visit/pester...


You could fly up this way and we can go morel "picking" up in the hills....fresh is WAY better!!!  :D

Hmm..who else could I visit/pester...


Here's a few things you might find useful...dehydrated veg; celery, spinach, onions (red and yellow), and bell peppers (various colors- red, green, yellow, orange and purple).
I make my own, courtesy of my dehydrator and Costco (large amounts of veg for a very decent price), so there's no weird preservative shiat in them.
 I've given jars of mire poix (celery, onion, and carrot) as well as mixed dried bell peppers as gifts...very pretty and very useful!
The peppers become chewy, and the flavor is concentrated, so they make an interesting addition to salads as well as useful for cooking.
Can't say the same for the celery...it becomes almost rock-hard and needs to be cooked.  About 10 minutes will do it.  It's weird, but something about the dehydration process makes it so that it will NEVER cook down into mush.  It retains a slightly chewy texture.  I use it in soups, stews, stuffing...and I'm told it goes a LONG way toward making ramen noodles more palatable and interesting.*
Spinach keeps its color and has concentrated flavor.  You can use it on salads, in the dressing, in eggs, the usual soups, stews (and ramen noodles!)...and it does WONDROUS things for tuna salad.  I've had people tell me that mine is the best they've ever had (which scritches my ego and makes me smile and go purrrrr...).

* Friend of mine was going 'camping' for a summer...had to keep his rations as light and non-perishable as possible.  Case of ramen noodles was part of the provisions.  I gave him dehydrated celery, onions, and spinach...came to less than a pound, but he told me later that he became very popular due to his cooking and that the addition of this stuff made all the difference.
It's nice to get things RIGHT now and then... :-)

my folks evidently have some in the yard up north..but there are never any left when they get in to open in May..and yes, I am sure that fresh is several shades of awesome! Pick and saute some for me!

You haz my empathy (chronic pain issues here).
I've found that generic muscle rub (Ben-Gay or Aspercreme knock-offs- I'm cheap thrifty) work surprisingly well for aleviating joint pain...although only temporarily...figure 2-3 hours, but they 'kick in' IMMEDIATELY.
I know you'd probably do this anyway, but my obsessive little soul makes me do this:
Make sure you wash your hands really well after applying!  If you get the fumes near your eyes it's very painful...and...how do I put this...keep it away from delicate parts*

They have the odorless kind if you really hate the wintergreen smell, but I don't know if they have it in generic.
Hope this helps...knee pain SUCKS...especially when you have to get stuff done!

Thinking you meant 'tub and its grody mat', right?
Make your life easier.  Toss the mat into the washer with a towel and use some vinegar in the rinse.
It will clean and de-grodify the mat.  Saw this in 'Hints from Heloise' years ago...and I do this for the tub mats at my group home.
Only way I can think of to clean the tub easier is to get someone else to do it... ;-)

She's unable to go Sun; guy I was gonna ride up with tomorrow isn't going Sun either; just thought of one other local club mbr (both those mentioned are) I might query. 'Ave a go at that in a minute or 5.

I can roll my tongue, wiggle my ears (tried the one at a time thing... I can wiggle my left ear by itself) and - I can wiggle my nose!  Like bunny rabbit style :)

I've been all sorts of out of it the past few days.  Can't even concentrate enough to do my online brain puzzles (sudoku, crosswords, jigsaw...)   The pain's increased, so that's my excuse.  I'll try to take some new kitteh pics at some point, along with pics of the blooming trees and lilacs.

My eldest, Seis, born 2002 and my youngest, Emperor Ming, born summer of 2010 on a fine spring day a couple of years ago.  Unfortunately, the Emperor has not been seen for a week now.  Having wandered away is unlikely given his past behavior.  Very afraid of strangers, so someone having thought he was a friendly stray isn't possible.  So is having been run over given our location.

Here's a video of him and his two years elder brother Marmalade having a standofish playfight in May 2012

OlderGuy: Greetings all... TGIC !!.. or.... Yay ! Caturday at last.... Fred is home.. had a UTI... and told me about it.. all fixed up now, on a new food regiment..  picked him up from the vet yesterday evening.. they brought him out in the carrier and all you could see was his butt.. put the carrier in the car, said his name and he turned around and the motor started... first action after being released at home from the carrier was to flop on his back for a belly rub.... after which he demonstrated that he could now pee.... hopefully the new food will prevent a reoccurance....


Glad Fred is feeling better..  My boy Boots had to have unblocking surgery on thursday, and was on IV fluids to try to flush out his kidneys yesterday.  Am anxiously waiting an update from the vet, but have no idea when they'll call.  It was around this time yesterday morning they rang me with a progress report, but being the weekend, not sure how many people would be there.

That is super creative! What language is it from?

In college there was a neighborhood cat who used to come visit our (coed) fraternity house for pets and scritches. We never found out her name but we weren't as creative as you so just called her Miss Kitty.

syzygy whizz: tigerose: Spiralmonkey: tigerose: *Rolls out very large wheel of Smoked Gouda* to go with my Whine! Oh my gosh my knee hurts. Aleve hasn't helped. I took 2 at noon. And yeah, I rode today..but we just walked! Wine is not helping either...this started week or so ago. Sort of woke up with Spock/Horta "The pain".. And this is my good knee! WTF? I hurt it 2 yrs ago. Why is it suddenly throwing a tantrum? I do.not.have time for this! My son graduates in 14 days? Ahhhhh!

Have you tried an Epsom salts bath? I know, onion belt and all that, but it works. Same for magnesium tablets. You can also get a magnesium oil spray. It really helps me with muscle pain.

If that doesn't work take 2 fingers of Bunnahabhain and call me in the morning.

have not tried it, but it is a good suggestion. I need to clean the tiband its groddy mat first! So, not tonight...maybe in teh mornin..had to lookup the pain reliever..:)


Thinking you meant 'tub and its grody mat', right?
Make your life easier.  Toss the mat into the washer with a towel and use some vinegar in the rinse.
It will clean and de-grodify the mat.  Saw this in 'Hints from Heloise' years ago...and I do this for the tub mats at my group home.
Only way I can think of to clean the tub easier is to get someone else to do it... ;-)


Easiest way is to put laundry detergent in the tub and fill it to the top with hot water. Leave to soak for 20 minutes then rinse off. The detergent should be able to get rid of grease, which is what makes the nasty ring stick to the tub in the first place. I got that tip from the tv show "How Clean Is Your House".

If that fails you can always fall back on my advice to Tigerose and take 2 fingers of Bunnahabhain then you won't mind what state the tub is in.

And for the record, I can neither curl my tongue nor waggle my ears, but I can do the Spock-Vulcan hello thing with both hands without thinking about it.

My uncle Allen used to be an aunt eater.

Where do cousins come from?


Not from that!  ;-)

KimJ: Agarista: This is my breakfast cat.
She comes in mornings, stays for some love, then gets thrown out when I go to work.
I think she lives a street or two over, so I don't knwo her "real" name.

I call her "Kahvalti" which means "breakfast"

That is super creative! What language is it from?

In college there was a neighborhood cat who used to come visit our (coed) fraternity house for pets and scritches. We never found out her name but we weren't as creative as you so just called her Miss Kitty.


Kahvalti means breakfast in Turkish.
She has been getting luvs n scritches every weekday breakfast for four years, and I'm moving away Monday.  I hope the new tenant will appreciate their breakfast cat!

Oh I do so love the long hairs! and mostly black, even better. I have never understood the whole "black cat bad luck" thing. Because I have had nothing but good luck with all my former "blackies"...Sending hugs and scritches, apply where needed!

I've always preferred black cats.  Maybe its because of the whole superstition thing about them.  Pigment discrimination.  I love my cuddly fuzzy friends  :)


My black kitties discriminate against the one grey cat in the house.  And when one of the kittens born last year (also black) went to go live with a friend of mine's parents, he terrorized their grey cat for a little while at first.

Major arthritis attack which just has to run its course. Probably brought on by stress/too much physical activity.

Not life-threatening but she has been in a lotta pain. Not sleeping well, hard to get out of a chair/bed. Percocets help.

Howdy John, sorry to hear you're in a rough place.

And I thought I might share some of my sauteed chicken with onion and garlic, swimming in an alfredo sauce, with morel mushrooms. (re-hydrated from dry). Served with whole wheat/ramp fettuccini. Ramps are like a wild onion/garlic bulb.. And not like the ones that grow in my garden..grr...No idea if they are edible, but I might try..I have enough of them!!!

Hmm..who else could I visit/pester...


If you do hop on your broom, make sure to wear your rain gear.

I love this hat but I hate the caption in the article.  That cat did not don that hat.  He's wearing the hat, and will probably soon doff the hat, but he certainly did not don the hat.

I guess if that's as bad as my day gets today I'll be happy.

Cats in hats? I can even keep a collar on this one. She go out and comes back without it within hours. Every time.

She's very pretty!!


Unfortunately she's not very sociable. We call her the Tourette's cat. She'll reach to get stroked and hiss at the same time, then march off growling. She even snorts.

Well, I haven't dated anyone on a serious level for about 2 years after I got out of an abusive relationship. MegaTron was affected as well. He never liked any guys I've brought home since then, but loooves flirting with girls. Anywho, I've been dating this really good guy for a long while now and a couple days ago while he was sitting on the couch, MegaTron came up and sat on his chest! I haven't seen him do that to another male hooman in years! Even though I'm really scared of commitment, I like this guy and I think I'm finally ready to be in a committed relationship. This is him letting Tron smell his hand. I'm glad Omega and I are both progressing in facing our fears.

I spent part of my day at the cemetery planting flowers for Mom,Dad and my grandparents. Also made sure that Grandpa got his British flag for Memorial Day. Grandpa had immigrated to the US prior to WWI and when England and Germany went to war he went back to England to join up before the US got involved, so I always make sure he gets his British flag, Dad gets his US flag in his submariner holder(he was always so proud of his sub service), Mom and Grandma get geraniums planted because they always said that's what you plant at the grave. I also put in some daisies and petunias cuz that's what I like, I also sprinkle in some wildflower seeds cuz Dad asked for them long before he passed away. He liked the cluttered look in his garden and wanted to make sure it carried on.

And here's a cat that my Mom always said looked evil.

Good afternoon Caturday Folks.  No newbie kittehs so far.  Really surprised that she hasn't given birth yet, but I guess it will happen when it happens.  I did feel one of them move the other day, which was a first.  Mo is now crazy about the laser pointer, but works himself into such a frenzy, that he gets dizzy and then falls over after he's done running in circles for about 30 seconds.  The beardies are doing fine in their new cage.  Had to get a wider one now that Paprika is with them, and now they have room to move around without crawling all over themselves.  And last but not least, this weekend's Iron Chef B4 challenge between the women and the men is Eggs.  The women are cooking tonight, and the boy and I tomorrow.  We will be making French Toast grilled cheese, egg, and ham sandwiches with a fruit salad on the side.  Now we just need to see what the womenfolk are making.  I'll try and post some pics of the animals here either tonight or tomorrow.

I need to get rid of it..Had a chippy jump in there to escape herr cott...and subsequently perish. I suppose he was already mortally injured. But oh...the smell..it was...16 shades of horrible.

From the looks of this place, my life has been very full and un-wasted!!


I love that "a clean house is a wasted life!"  An other favorite is "no one ever died wishing they had kept their house cleaner!"

Oh that is cool. I do love working with silks. They take alot of abuse without flying all over da place...For my wedding I had a silk arrangement that copied my live bouquet for the top of the cake. I took the large orchid our of my bouquet and gave it to my Mom before I threw the thing. Both my Mom and the Mother in law had silks.

Lol! I hear ya! Actually by the time he crawls into bed it is usually late, and he goes right to "take a bath, go to sleep". If he gets up in the night it is usually so that he can crawl under the covers with me. He doesn't stay long..he gets too hot! :) Soon he will be sprawled at the end of the bed by the window, and under the fan..warm weather ahead!

I haven't read any of the recent ones. I stopped reading McCaffrey when she started making everything romance-centric. Pern, Acorna, Rowan/Damia. I don't know what's the point of creating fantastic universes if you're still going to center everything about main characters finding their "soul mates". (And those relationships are almost always heterosexual, as if no one else can hope for a "perfect" match...)

So we had good day at the vet today (after puking all over my stinking car!)

Thyroid levels are near the upper normal range (the upper normal is 4.7 and Rocky is at 4.8 now) and while her kidney levels have gone up, they're nothing to be concerned about at this time. Going to stay on the same dose of meds for the time being and she doesn't have to go back for 3 months!

Nothing exciting....broiled burger patties, and boxed mac and cheese. But I make the mac different from the recipe, so it's a lot creamier, and doesn't separate when it's heated again. And it's yummy!! And some fresh cantaloupe!

No problems at all.  Sage has certainly introduced himself to her, and Rosemary uses her as a stand whenever she gets cold.  Now, if we had put another male in there, we would have had a dead beardie, but two females and a male, no problems.

Once I  knew a warm place,
A smiling face.

Now I only know disgrace.

In a dark and damp
Corner I pace.

What did I do?
I loved you.

I gave you all that I had.
I thought You were glad.

To be mine.
For all time.

Yet you left me here,
Now I only know fear.

No more heavely place,
No more safe space.

All is night,
Never right.

I sigh,
Curl tight.

Perhaps in the morning,
Sun will shine.

And I shall find,
Who is mine.

Nope.  Lots of dead skin pealed off, but no blood.  Little turd has some sharp claws, and he definitely does not like being held by anyone.  Way too skittish for my tastes.

Womenfolk's version of Egg Iron Chef is done, and it was Oriental Shrimp, Rice, and eggs in a soy and white vinegar sauce.  Not too bad, but we all agreed that the vinegar was a little bit overpowering.  It's official name was Adobong Hipong Sa Gata.  Nice to see the Filipino cookbook getting some use after a few years on the shelf.  Although her homemade lumpia is still beyond awesome.

tigerose: Hey umm..did one of our number plan to be hiking the Appalachian trail this weekend? Because during a parade to celebrate the Trail, a car plowed thru a group of parade onlookers. And now I haz a worried...anyone with a better memory than me?.


I'm in Alabama visiting the family. Hubby and I would have been in Damascus, VA for Trail Days if I hadn't already booked the flight to come here. Kinda glad we didn't get to go now!

BBBB Sounds truely yummy. Did they use rice vinegar? It can make a big difference. Then again, our palate is not their palate! I never thought to do french toast grilled cheese sandwiches...interesting idea!

I have to make french toast wif egg whites. Whole eggs make my tummy unhappy..my grandma had teh same thing..
