domari: Just got back from the vet, again, with a new kitten who arrived today.

Little girl named Bibi, around 7 weeks old. Mother cat and kittens dumped on a back road near someone's house. Mother cat took off, left the kitten alone.
Obvious eye infection, upper respiratory infection, covered with wicked diarrhea, needed to see the vet ASAP. Nice woman who found her can't keep her and called us for help.
Today's vet visit, test for feline leukemia/FIV/heartworm, fecal exam, medication for diarrhea, eye drops, total $116.27
That doesn't include the worming medication and oral antibiotics which I already have at home.
When she's healthy she'll need her distemper vaccine. It costs us $85 to spay a female kitten.

If she would have been taken to our local shelter she would have been killed quickly, they don't treat sick kittens, they put them to sleep. Her ailments are all common in stray kittens and very treatable. We don't kill kittens just because they're sick like this, we treat them then put them up for adoption.
She's a very sweet kitten, non stop purr motor, very adoptable. Adorable calico which get adopted quickly.

For all of you who have donated and those who are considering it, this is one of those "this is where your money goes" photos, meet Bibi...

If Juno wins, imagine how many more kittens like this we could afford to care for.
VOTE DAILY FOR JUNO!


domari, I am just catching up after a nightmare day of travel, but this story needs to be shared - can you put it on your FB page, and then we can share along with the link to vote for Juno?  I think it'll help for people to see what you do in terms of dollars and little faces...  Thank you for everything you do!!!

tigerose: My Hero

You are my hero,
You live in my heart,

In my minds eye,
I see you.

Even though,
You are far away.

I still remember your gentle touch
The firmness of your hands
As you held me.

I can close my eyes,
Know your scent.

Your footsteps,
Resound in my soul.

I know the others are worried,
I smell it on them.

They speak in whispers.

Of horrors I do not understand.
Their fear covers them,

Like a shroud.

Time has passed,
Seems forever.

When did I last,
Smell your fresh scent,

Lick your hand.
Snuggle close to your side?

I miss you.

I hear from others that
Our person comes into our dreams.

So that we may know,
When you are gone.

Over.

Sometimes,
I don't want to sleep.
Afraid of my dreams.

I want you home.

Until then,
I will care for
Your other.

I will speak to them,
I will comfort.
I will be here in your stead.

When you finally open
The door,

You shall find me here,
Patiently waiting.

(c)tigerose 5/26/13



Magnificent, as always!

chirpy: maynerdkitty: since Forrest and Flower are gone

I sure hope they find their way home too!  Maybe they are somewhere close, waiting for the mean cat to go away.


I have been keeping him in the house. I got some of the special food for male cats and a bag of cat nip. I have been putting extra water in his and Maxes gooshy food too. He has been jumpy lately and agitated. He will hiss at Tom because he smells of Oma Cassie. I make it a point to pet her just before I come in from feeding and then I find Li-Ion and pick him up and cuddle him. I hope to get him to not hate her so much. If the others don't make it home I would like to ask her to come in the house. But I have to get him to accept her because I don't want her tormented.

He was such an adorable kitten!  I hope he settles down and stops being such a brat.  Oma Cassie doesn't need to be tormented by the little stinker.  Please keep us posted.  We know how much you love all of your kitties and hope Forest & Flower return too.

Diocletian's Last Cabbage: Hey everbuddy, just voted for Juno.  Got tomorrow off, so will wander downtown again and vote.

My gout has gone away, but now all my remote controls are failing due to excess chicken grease getting into the recesses between the buttons.  Don't bother asking how.  Tried to disassemble them and spray some contact cleaner on the PCBs, but no go.  Will have to break down and buy a new universal remote.  For a former enlisted maintenance tech like me, having to buy new instead of fix old is a bitter pill to swallow.  Grrrrrrr!

And now, some maintenance kitties...

[i1134.photobucket.com image 640x461]

Sure would be nice if a certain little alien would join us...


Regarding the remote... remove the batteries.. use either fantastic, greased lightning, simple green, etc.. spray into and around the buttons.. use an old toothbrush to get in the crevices around the buttons.. rinse with fairly hot water... repeat... one extra rinse.. rinse through battery compartment also... shake the water out.. I put the device in an old sock and tie a string on it and whirl it around at a good speed... the centrifugal force will remove most of the water.. remove from sock, set in sun to dry.. if you have heat/ac vents on the floor, place buttons down a vent.. leave it for a few hours.. as long as there is no power on it, water/soap won't hurt it.. a thorough rinse is very important.... when it is dry, put the batteries back in and you have a working remote......I like to disassemble the unit pre cleaning.. clean all the parts, dry, reassemble.. good to go.. same with computer keyboards and spillage.. immediate response to a spill is to remove the power source... unplugging, batteries, etc.. that's when damage happens.... FYI, iPhones that get doused are dead meat.. can't remove the battery....fries the logic.....

ThePuceGuardian: So, if everything could stop sucking just for a minute or two, that'd be great. However, today hasn't been completely without solaces:

[i.imgur.com image 214x421]

An oak-aged ale I don't dislike? What is this black magic?
Pity I'll likely never find another bottle.


Ooooooh, I haven't seen that one before. I've had their Double-Barrel Ale (this IS the Firestone Brewery out of Paso Robles, CA, right?) on tap before, and I try to snag it when I find it at the grocery store. Will look for that on my next grocery run.

Oh, and thank you to The Ice Queen for the month of TF. Will have to pay it back/forward at some time, though it seems that most Caturday regulars seem to be permanent TFers. :)

And drat, ThePuceGuardian showed up and I had no pictures posted. Must try again next week; I love plasma-fied kitties!

So last week I picked up a little pot of wheat grass from the store, as they boys are now indoor-only cats and need their greens. Every time I came back into the kitchen I noticed that the pot had been knocked over. I figured that they were just nomming vigorously, but when I was making a cup of tea I saw this little chain of events that I got a few pics of. Sassy started chomping on the grass, yum!

i60.photobucket.com

Then I watched him carefully turn his head and grab it sideways...
i60.photobucket.com

And very gently tilt it over...
i60.photobucket.com
i60.photobucket.com

And happily chomped away at what was apparently a better angle. He wasn't clumsy at all, he was careful and deliberate about it.
i60.photobucket.com
i60.photobucket.com

They haven't devoured it like they have previous plants, so I'm not sure if it's not to their taste (I usually got the others from the pet store, this was from the grocery store) or if they weren't in the mood, but it's still cute to watch them just sit there and chew like carnivorous sheep. (Back when I got the pots regularly I expected Sonny to start bleating, with how he would go crazy over them!)

Off for munchies, I crave macaroni and cheese, which is bad for me and that's why I want it. But I get the "hippie" mac n' cheese, so it's less-bad for me. :D

That's the one. Their 16th Anniversary special release. Had it in my closet since last Christmas, stashed away against a day when I needed cheering up. Wasn't thrilled when I poured it, but it tastes nothing like it smells. The nose is all wet charcoal and oak, but flavor-wise it's straight chocolate and rum raisin. 13% ABV, too, so pretty hot. Hot but harmonious. I thought it would age well, and it seems I was right. I don't think there are any bottles left to be had, though; it's been months since I've seen any.

ArmednHammered: Diocletian's Last Cabbage: Tried to disassemble them and spray some contact cleaner on the PCBs, but no go.
Use Isopropyl alcohol to gently clean the bottom of the rubber buttons then get some fountain pen India ink and using a q-tip, re-coat the bottom of the rubber buttons. You'll see the dark grey or black coating on them. Put on a coat and let it dry, six coats seems to work for quite a while. The India ink is conductive enough to make the circuit. Good luck.


That is good to know. I remember fixing the contacts of an old Atari 5200 controller with little pieces of aluminum foil. Then again, when in doubt....

Call an electrician...asap.. either incoming power or in-panel issues.. one side of the power is intermittent.. there are two hot wires coming in, plus a neutral or common wire.. either hot to neutral is 120 volts  between the two hots is 240 volts.. the dryer has to have 240 volts to run.. with the garage door not working, that indicates that one of the hot wires is either dead or intermittent.. have you noticed brighter or dimmer lights?   appliances can be damaged when this happens....
