ferfer72: tigerose and vudutek

I don't think you understand the severity of the situation.  I had to wear gloves to catch them.  They are biters, not lovers.  I can't safely handle them without getting hurt.


They are being defensive, they are scared.. as they get used to you, things will get easier....

A little white paint and you could tell your friends about your three adorable pet skunks.  Someone would adopt them for sure.


Make sure to say that they are descented... :o)

born_yesterday: I realize I'm late to the thread, but one of the kitten cams I watch got me thinking about my last cat, Mr. Fluffy.

I took Mr. Fluffy in off the streets of Baltimore.  More accurately, he accepted the terms of the agreement and volunteered.  Seriously.  He was the biggest stray i had ever seen (20 lbs as it turns out), and would sit on my porch with the others, waiting for noms.  But Mr. Fluffy never meowed or begged or stroked my leg; he just looked at me calmly, waiting.  One day, when I decided I was willing to devote myself to a cat, I saw him outside, and I said to him, "OK, here's the deal:  I'll give you all the food you could want, all the love that you want, and medical attention, but you can't go outside anymore."  I opened the apartment door and asked, "So what do you say?".  He got up and walked in and followed me into my apartment.

I took him to the vet right away.  As it turns out, he was a he (he had been neutered, probably by one of the volunteer cat trappers in Baltimore), but I refused to change his name, hence the awkward moniker "Mr. Fluffy".  The bad news was, he was FIV positive.  He wasn't expected to last long.  But, we made a deal, and I was sticking to it.  Throughout his life, I had to deal will numerous traumas.  Like the stomatitis.  Like having to remove all the teeth behind his canines.  And the glaucoma.  And, eventually, the ear infection that destroyed his balance.  That's when I eventually had to let him go, when I knew life was painful for him.  He survived through two cross-country moves, four apartments, and seven years.

I still won't take in another cat.  I can't yet, and he passed 5 years ago.  He was too much.  He had so much personality.  I can't take in another cat and compare them to him; it wouldn't be fair.  He used to sit at the window, watching his old haunt, and would "murr" and nod hello when I walked in (to get attentions).  He would play cat and mouse with me, getting chased and chasing me, until the day I dove ...


If and when you are ready, go to a shelter and visit with the cats.. one will 'find' you.. you can't compare the two.. they all are different.. if you do decide to get another one, enjoy it for who it is... I remember all of those who have crossed the bridge, and miss them greatly.. but they are gone, and there are so many that desperately need a forever home and someone to love them... you will help them as they will help you.....

RadicalEd: Still at #3!

I just went to make coffee and realized how gross my coffee maker is. I need a new one, considering this Black & Decker one is over 5 years old... I'd love to get something that could possibly use the k-cups for some variety, but that I could make my own coffee as well... Not sure if something like that exists?

The two cat butts are doing fine. Running around like crazies all morning. Ivan enjoys dragging The Man's fleece pj pants around the house and then bunching them up to hump while crying out loudly (in his little girly voice). Scared me this morning because I thought the dark thing was Tola on the ground and he was crying cause she was hurt. Nope, just getting his kitty jollies off, as much as a neutered male can I guess.

Here is Ivan holding onto my boots, as if he's being dragged away:

[img.photobucket.com image 446x334]


We've got two coffee makers at the group home and they can get pretty grody. I clean them out (reservoir and all) every week with a solution of bleach and water. Let that sit for a bit, rinse out thoroughly, then I run a pot of water through just to make sure there's no 'leftovers'.
Did I mention I unplug them while doing this?

domari: sherpa18: born_yesterday: "Mr. Fluffy"... The bad news was, he was FIV positive.
vudutek: We've have an FIV+ stray we took in almost 7 years ago. Vet suggested to put him down on first visit. Sadly, the vet passed from cancer last year, Boobus is still going strong.

For the life of me, I can not understand this mentality. Most FIV+ cats are carriers, and will never suffer any symptoms. Oreo was also positive, and while my vet did not suggest putting him down, she did caution us about letting him interact with our other 3. They all got along for many years until Oreo passed of old age at 23 - and none of the others were ever affected.

Now, where were we?
[i415.photobucket.com image 203x324]

We had a stray cat test positive for Feline Leukemia, Tyson had no symptoms and had someone willing to care for him so we decided not to euthanize him. The woman who was feeding him outside took him in to her apartment, trained him to use a litter pan, also she put a harness on him so she can still take him out on a leash. Tyson was neutered which prevented him from infecting any more females and also calmed down his urge to fight with all the other tom cats in the neighborhood. He's adjusted to living indoors for the most part, still gets antsy when he sees his rival outside and wants to go out and fight with him, but happy inside, snoozing in his sunny window.

Instead of being euthanized, he's living a very spoiled life indoors now with a lot of love and attention.  This is what the life of a feline leukemia cat is like.....

This is a very content kitty!!

This is Tailer.. at least 6, is a carrier for FelLuke..  not sick.. he is my basement kitty... someone had him neutered, found out about the FL and dropped him off in my neighborhood...

The bleach will sanitize.. will also remove the color from the stains... I use CLR.. dissolves calcium deposits in the reservoir and heater.. then flush, then bleach....

[i415.photobucket.com image 353x132]

Lol! When have you ever met a cat who gave a damn?

Eli was reminding me that I need to make more spuds for Dragon..I have it on my list for sometime this weekend...Eli's been tearing his to shreds..yes to shreds you say! Oh my yes...


Hmmm...wouldn't know about 'give a damn', but I do know that they care... ;-D

Had a really bad leg cramp the other day and was making "Dammit dammit dammit ow ow ow!" noises.
D'Artagnan (of all people) jumped up on the chair in which I was sitting to see what was wrong.

My old Alpha Cat Misha used to watch out for...and watch over me in so many ways...

Plain old white vinegar will also remove hard water deposits, as well as general grodiness, just rinse well as you mentioned.
* wait a second, I'm supposed to unplug it first? *

Nagging at my columnists to get their articles the heck in. Got a couple, got promises for rest by tomorrow.
Got chorusmate to agree to vote for Juno, gotta call in favour from N0WBV who lives in Littleton CO & edits what I transcribe (predle surely knows where that is better than I do) who's also owned by cats.
Almost time for Pl to get home & us to turn into punkins or similar --

Fireworks have started at the local amusement park. Gremie is putting holes in my shoulder and Jack is sitting on my feet. I'm so glad that thunder doesn't bother them but they really don't like fireworks.
2 more nights if it.
