sherpa18: Evening all.

valnt9 asked me to apologize for her absence this weekend despite having internet, while it it not my place to go into details, she received some disturbing news and has other things on her mind right now. She is safe, but I would respectfully request that you all keep her in your thoughts.


Yikes. Will do.

John Buck 41: lilyspad: John Buck 41: tigerose: So, my boys play badminton when the weather is cooperative, and today I bought them a new supply of birdies..why do I want to giggle like a little girl when I see "Shuttlecocks"? I must admit it's the only bird I will let Eli "get"..made him drop one yesterday!

Today is our 7th Anniversary. Copper and wool were the choices (I can't remember which is traditional and which is modern). Mrs. Buck got me a copper rooster  :)   I got her a copper-bottomed saucepan and also drilled holes through 2 pennies, an '02 (year we met) and an '06 (year we wed) for her keychain.

Awww...that's cute!! Happy Anniversary!!! :D Pics????

SweetBecca: The trip to the Vet went like this...After 15 minutes, we got all 4 legs, a tail, body, and head in the crate....


I sympathize. Dragon hates the carrier with the passion of a thousand suns. I take the carrier, put in a clean towel, stand it on end and prop it up in the corner of my big closet. Don gauntlets (heavy leather work gloves), scruff cat with one hand, back legs with the other, run to closet, drop cat in, and try to slam the door as fast as possible before additional appendages make an appearance.

I have been trying to unpack a few boxes a day but I put all the stupid chickens on a book shelf and then had to unpack four boxes of books today. Broke out the hammer and nails and up went most of the chickens.

It was very warm today, 101 heat index. The house does not have central air so I run a small window unit in the bedroom and keep Li-Ion and Max in there. I have a swamp cooler for the main part of the house but its still so hot in here that my chocolate chips melted into a bar in the cupboards. Makes it hard to get much done when it's that warm.

I went outside at about 3 or 4 this afternoon and this was in my driveway:

Wow! That would've freaked me out. Horses don't generally relax in that manner, do they?

Only if they feel safe, he and Mountain take turns. I have never seen them both laying down at the same time. Mountain was standing in the shade nearby. I have no idea why they like that spot in the drive, but they have a big hollow in that spot.
Don't tell Castle but when I looked to see where Mountain was I saw that he was sleeping too. At least he was in the shade and on his feet. I wouldn't trust him as a guard horse.
It did freak me out a little, I walked out there and woke him up, to make sure he was OK.

 It would be like a ghost convention if we all got together. Irish/German  freckles, blue eyes, auburn hair.
I get pink in the sun but the burn doesn't surface until hours later. Then I blister and peel until I am pale again. I never get tan.

George won't go in the carrier this evening, he is still on the porch railing. I hate to stuff him in there with the hens but if I don't something might eat him. I don't know if anything will come this close to the house, he may be safe enough. I picked up the materials to start the new pen today. I did not like any of the wire at Lowe's so I will look at the tractor store when I go in tomorrow to pick up the cats flea dope.

Should I give the cats a bath before I put the revolution on them? If so how on earth will I give Li-Ion a bath without major blood loss? I have thought about putting him in a pillow slip with just his head out and swirling him around in the bath water for a while, then spraying him off with the shower. But if I leave his head out he will bite me!

Get a couple of buckets with plenty of nice temperature water in the bathroom.
Get two or three towels, soap, something to scoop and pour water with, and any other items you need to bath him in the bathroom.
Get Li-Ion in the bathroom.  Close the door.  If possible, carefully clip all of his claws.
Put towel in bathtub for him to stand on and put him on the towel.
Working fast, pour enough water over him to get him soaked.
Suds him, let him run around the bathroom if you need to leave the soap on for a few minutes.
Put him back on the towel in the bathtub.
Working fast, pour water over him until he is rinsed.  You might need to put him back in the tub on the towel a few times to accomplish this.
If he will let you, towel him off with the extra dry towel.

Do not have running water when you are trying to bath him.
Do have a towel, rug, or some other thing in the bathtub for him to stand on and grip.
Do let him run, catch, soothe and resume as necessary.
Have treats, if he likes any, for him when you are done.
Give lots of love and praise.
Good luck, if you need to give him a bath.

Thanks, I will ask the vet about the bath, I want to get the fleas off of them but I think they need the oils in their fur for the stuff to work.
I took Fiona in this morning, I had convinced myself that she had the mange and heart worms. She does not, but she had lots of fleas and a bad reaction to them. She is on prednisone and some flea/heart worm stuff. I have to spray under the house and in the yard and then spray in the house. I may put the kitties in the garage for the day if it is not too warm. The vet was out of the flea dope for the kitties so I have to go back in tomorrow and pick it up.

This is Juno's safe place.  When ever she and Morticia get into one of their tiffs Juno heads straight here.  Since it's right next to my chair I always break things up. Based on the amount of Juno hair that I find, Juno also goes here even when I'm not in the chair. The safe place isn't so safe without mom there.
