yobbery: sherpa18: yobbery: A+++  Will vote again! Later this evening I'm going to check my Paypal account and send off a little sump'n sump'n for Little Mews. Why don't we all do this this weekend? (even if it's a single dollar...I triple dog dare you!)

While I was trying to make it clear in the headline that we are NOT asking for cash donations (in order to get more people to click on the link and participate) I'm sure that Little Mews would not kick any additional funds outta bed :o) In fact, Dragon (aka the Patron Saint of Couch Change) has accepted your challenge, and says that he will not come back out (except to eat) until he finds at least $3 (what can I say, you triple dog dared him)...

Correct, This is all me. I think it should be the 1st annual LittleMews Memorial Day Extravaganza.

We did the same thing overnight. I knew something was up when I woke up in the wee hours to discover that Mandu was under the covers with me instead of on top.

OlderGuy: Greetings All..  TGIC !!   get to keep in touch with the family now... haz voted.. #7... triple dog dare accepted... ( you can't refuse those things..)  Fred met me at the gate to the back yard, promptly flopped down for his belleh rub... my neighbor, who is a good guy, thinks that is hilarious.. he can't get within 20 feet of Fred.. but neither can anyone else.... Fred is not taking to the Hills food.. went with the Purina special care urinary tract blend.. he likes that, and is passing his fluids well...  and he will demonstrate if needed.... got some storms headed this way...nothing serious.. rain and thunder.. with all the rain we have had, at night my back yard is writhing with nightcrawlers.. no barefootin' for me....


So glad that Fred is hanging out at home and feeling good! Thanks for the update!

Bathia_Mapes: John Buck 41: Bathia_Mapes: Okay, I voted. Will vote again tomorrow.

Any idea why it's taking so long for  Dark Shadows(2012 movie) to show up on NetFlix?

For rental or streaming? If the latter, probably never. Warner/Universal/MGM streaming licenses expired recently so Netflix lost a considerable amount of content. Warner has their own site now for streaming content.

The only other thing I can suggest is check your local library. I got my copy from ours and frankly, I was disappointed with the movie. Except for the photo showing the cameo scene for Jonathan Frid, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Lara Parker & David Selby in the 2012 Dark Shadows movie, you will not anything else from that movie in my profile.


I was hoping for streaming. I was aware that Netflix recently massively cut their library. I'll probably just try to find a used Dvd at the local indie music/video store. I wasn't crazy about the movie but enjoyed the Maine angle and thought Depp was great.

OK, I have a non-cat related question...figure Caturday People are such a mixed community with a HUGE amount of 'Been there, done that' experience.
The (short) story: Having some dental work done, going to be getting a partial (it will be nice having BOTH sides of my mouth available for chewing again).
Decided that maybe some whitening might not hurt the situation. Went to apply the stuff, and my REMAINING FRONT TOOTH MOVED.
Hit the panic button, call the dentist, banzai down to the office, tears, x-rays...'The bone looks fine. It's the ligament that's loose.'
Teeth have ligaments? Who knew? This is good...well, opposed to losing more teeth, it's good. Now the query.
Aside from 'Tincture of Time', how does one convince a static ligament to tighten up?

Thanks...

If it helps, I've gotten some very good deals at Amazon buying used books and Books-on-CD (which I then donate to my library).
I was told that the library isn't supposed to buy used books/CDs/etc. ...but donated stuff is used by definition and just fine as long as it's in good condition... ;-)

Really did intend to compliment W A Wayne on Stinky's good looks, even if derpy under the Santa hat. If/as you 2 are fond of each other & he's agreed to let you live with him, who could ask for much more.
Pleased/relieved to hear all are safe, well or recovering, as of current reports & retorts.
Time for me to pack it in for the eve.  Plumbicon took this on his phone (mine doesn't do that or anything but handle phone calls, doesn't even record for me at chorus rehearsals as almost everyone else's does) & finally transferred it, now that everything new must go into 1 folder per drive until the Great Migration happens.
i.imgur.com
Furry furrthest left & sons Yakko & Wakko awaiting a meal, in formation. Quite likely a lunch. Plumbicon gets credit; he's rarely vertical & rational for their breakfasts.  Got Yakko one of those eat-slower bowls with big raised area in center; makes little difference. We still get wet chow-deposits-cum-hairballs as he still manages to gobble.
Until the daylit AM, adieu.

Indeed I was. He's currently napping on the new blankie my daughter got him, also has a brand new litterbox just for him and a fancier water dish that keeps the bowl nice and full for him. He's sequestered from the other kitties for a day or so, but keeps trying to escape into the outer realms of the apartment. One of the other kitties was hissing at him through the door. They're all like "why'd you come back? You smell funny!"

I don't know what to say except thank you for those of you who help us. We really can't do it without the support of others, and you guys are a big part of that.


I'm really at a loss for words here, which as some of you may know is a bit of a shocker.

We have a lot of goals, we still need to raise money to buy a building for an adoption center which is taking forever. Again,  one of the buildings we liked had someone  else put an offer on it. We see places we like and watch them get bought by someone else because we haven't been able to raise the money for it yet. It's very frustrating to have a head full of ideas for a great adoption center/thrift store and no place to put my ideas to work.

Winning the $4,500 prize would be a huge help!!

Thanks, that would be very helpful. This time of the year we get overwhelmed with kittens and the costs vet care. The momma cats and kittens we wind up with are usually not well cared for or in the best of health. Our vet bills are outrageous, kitten season drains our bank account quickly.

Just this past week has been another crazy one. I was contacted by someone who's kids heard kittens in a dumpster near her apartment. She crawled into the dumpster and found three little kittens she guessed to be 3-4 weeks old. We have a momma cat with kittens a week older, so the kittens were put in with her and the momma cat took them on as if they were her own. They're all doing great now. One of the kittens only has 2 toes on each of it's back feet, Cretinbob posted a photo of the kitten, it's adorable even with it's weird little feet.

Last weekend I posted about going to help out an older guy who was very poor yet loved his cats very much. Since he couldn't afford to spay/neuter them, they had kittens. We took in 7 kittens, several have eye infections, one of them is pretty bad. They had to go to the vet, be tested for feline leukemia/FIV and get antibiotic ointment for the eyes. Tomorrow we're going back to the man's home to take some of the other 10 cats he needs to rehome.

Then one of the pregnant cats decided to have her kittens, gave birth to a stillborn at 1:30am, I stayed up all night waiting for the rest of the kittens, nothing...
In the morning, she still didn't have any more, by the afternoon she acted as if she wasn't in labor any more so we had to take her to the vet for a c/section. The vet removed 3 dead kittens and one live very small kitten. The mother cat didn't want to take care of the kitten after her surgery so we put the kitten in with another cat who just gave birth two days prior. That mother cat took on the little kitten and even though my expectations of the kitten surviving weren't high, it's still doing ok. Cretinbob posted a photo of the tiny kitten in his hand, that's the sole survivor. An expensive c/section for the cat and only one kitten who might not make it. Momma cat is doing great and will be ready for adoption when she's healed from her surgery.

Yesterday we got a call from someone who found kittens under the steps of an vacant building she owns. Not the most friendly little ones, they had to be trapped. Their mother is being elusive and avoiding the traps. The kittens are old enough to eat solid food but they still need their mom. We couldn't leave them where they were, they're very close to the road and it's in a not so nice place.

Who knows what else tomorrow will bring. The phone will start to ring first thing in the morning with someone with cats and kittens that they don't want anymore. We're getting pretty filled up, I have fosters who are also running out of room. If we run out of money and space for the kittens to go I have to put them on a waiting list. If people don't want to wait they'll just dump the cats and kittens on back roads to fend for themselves or bring them to the local shelter which is a kill shelter. It's never ending vicious cycle.

 Syndactyly
There are two toes on each foot, I think that's what I can see. There are definitely two claws but there isn't a lot of space between the toes.
