sherpa18: maynerdkitty: sherpa18: You too? /and after the blistering and peeling, i still end up paler than the white boy
 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.

/ the weird part is that unlike everyone else that has chimed in, i have brown hair, brown eyes, and come from northern italian ancestry

Don't hate me, but I have freckles, light skin and dark red hair (used to be anyway). The first time I am in the sun, no matter how long, I go to bed red and wake up in the morning tanned and beautiful (well okay I made up the beautiful part but the tan part is true).  When my brother got married in 1975 I was one of the bridesmaids.  When I got to Omaha a couple of days before the wedding I was pasty white.  All the other girls in the wedding had been working hard on their tans and were quite pleased with themselves.  We all spent the day before at the pool.  There was a whole passel of pissed off bridesmaids when I showed up at the wedding tanner than any of them, even the bride.

maynerdkitty: Timid Goddess:

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 ...


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.


Buy a flea comb, get cat, flea comb and bowl of soapy water.  Comb cat, deposit fleas in bowl of soapy water.  Repeat as long as you and cat are willing to continue.

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.


Happy Anniversary and many more happy and healthy ones ahead!  (((((((hugs)))))))

I'm going to have to break down and come up with a replacement computer.
This one is OK for text (blackish on a pinkish background) but photo editing is pretty much out of the question.
Maybe by next Caturday I'll have something figured out.
Maybe.

In the meantime, I need to check out and hit the hay.
Thanks to everybody for making this such a great Caturday.
See you all soon!

QFT.
Big hugs to everyone.

Life is so short.  Hug your friends.  Spend time with your family.  Tell someone you love them.  Seize the day.

(Seize the TP if necessary.  Do what you gotta do.)

See you all next Caturday.
