lilyspad: gremlin1: lilyspad: gremlin1: Jack is still limping on his back leg after breaking a nail, but he's letting his foot touch the ground and he made it up and down the steps on the deck without help today. So I would say he's getting better and we can skip the trip to the vet.
He is currently sleeping in his usual spot on the couch, yesterday he couldn't get on the couch and ended up sleeping in front of it on the floor, not his favorite spot.

I'm really glad that he's doing better!!! Poor baby! :D

I know that breaking a nail can be painful for a dog but every time I think about it all I can picture is this.
[grmmmie.smugmug.com image 400x299]

*snerk* Do you know how he broke his nail?


Not a clue. And since it's on a back foot I can't even begin to figure out how he did it.

That was me last Wednesday when I stubbed my toe and broke the darned thing!  I'd forgotten how much that hurts.


Oh owie! Which toe did you mangle? I always get the baby toe. If there is a chair leg handy, my toe goes right for it. Like it has radar or something.

Well, I arranged with the neighbor to cat sit while we are away. He graduated college last year and is still trying to find a job. He's working at the local Wine Bar. He is willing to feed Eli his gooshie fud twice a day, but I will be going over the feeding stuff with him before I leave. He laughed when I told him Eli needs his fiber every meal....poor kitteh...he misses us so much. I think I will leave my robe on the floor so that he has something to snuggle into.

I hope that's ALL he does to it! Could be "pay-back" time.....just sayin'! :D

Which are why the treats are kept where Eli can't get to them! Although, when we used to have a microwave cart, he would take things off (like marshmallows or croutons) and carry them to the Guinea Pig cage..I think he was trying to quiet them down! :)

Oh yeah, we've had revenge poop before. The funniest was actually my mom's cat, who pooped in the sink. By the time they came home it was fuzzy...*gulp* glad I didn't have to deal with that!

Once one of our cats peed on the bed..on my husbands side...that was nasty to clean up!

With me it used to be the second to the last toe and door jams.  Usually managed to break the nail about halfway down the nail bed, if I didn't take the nail off completely, that is.

Went out to pick up step-dad today and took him clear to the other side of town to get him a current ID card......found out they are closed on Mondays!!! ARGH!!! So, instead of having tomorrow to myself and get caught up on stuff, I have to do it all over again. RATS!!!

The trip to the Vet went like this...

ME: Come on Wentworth, get in the crate.
WENTW: Mrrrrowwwww (I think that is cat for screw you)
ME: Come on get in. @#*$&@
WENTW: Meeerrrrrrooowwwwwww (Must be cat for bite me.)
ME: Jim!! Come help me get him in the crate.
JIM: You think I am nuts?
ME: You are not going to have any nuts if you don't help me.

After 15 minutes, we got all 4 legs, a tail, body, and head in the crate. Get in the car, and all the way to the vet.. Mrrrrrowwwww, and low growls. He did GREAT at the vet. Not a problem. Maybe he was scared. Don't know. Oh well, he took his shots like a champ and let the vet put him in the crate. Ungrateful little shiat. LOL Look how content he is at the vet. Traitor.

Ditto the breakers idea. We're here in FL as well. Our unit has a main A/C breaker outside, and another on the inside breaker panel.

I need to go downstairs and get the bbq ready. Making some chicken thighs today marinated in salsa and balsamic vinegar. YUM!
 
2013-06-17 06:25:52 PM  
yup, checked breakers.

They will be out either tomorrow evening or Wednesday.

I let the big guy out of lockup for a bit...till 7ish.  then it is back in the office for the duration.  I hate doing that but this is my cats and dogs house...

Yup, baby toe on the right foot.  Bad thing is I'm going on a fishing trip tomorrow and will spend about 16 hours Wednesday and Thursday standing in a boat.  This is not going to be comfortable but I've already paid for half the cost of the trip so I'm not cancelling and losing the deposit.

Awww...thanks for thinking of me!  Actually it's not too bad today, and I slept okay last night.  But, again....hard to apply to the back on my own!!  I can only reach so far.  The rest of my puny little white body is pretty good.  My chest is a little red, but not bad.  And it will all turn brown....I'm lucky that way!

Check their thermostat and see if you have to reset the time.  That one happens to us every time we get a power blip.

Must be nice. I'm a burn and peel and repeat person, sometimes in the summer I can get my tan all the way to normal skin tone if I'm lucky.

You must be naturally fair skinned....red head, or blonde?  My Dad was a red head...my Mom had dark brown hair.  Fortunately I got Mom's skin......sortof.  I also got "porcelain skin" from her, so I get bruises really easily.  And my face shows a lot of veins.  Thanks Mom!  :D  But man, do I turn brown in the summer!!
