Regrets to everyone asking, No, I did not take pictures. One of those times where you just fell in love.
I just was in the (mud) with this awesome dog. My better two-thirds did call and make an appointment for next week with one of her people because she said that I was so "mean" wanting to adopt.

I'm still working on getting prozac for us. However, any decent owner would be good. I (while unemployed) told the society that I would pay adoption fees.

All of our cats LOVE boxes (and also bags...)  We pretty much always have a soda flat box out for Cassie - it's her "safe zone" when she decides she doesn't want to play anymore :)

Jesus Farking Christ: Okay, confession of ignorance time.  I had no idea cats liked boxes.  Emma's my first cat, I totally didn't know.  I've been throwing them out.

Should I get a couple of boxes, and what should I put in them?


1.Yes
2. Emma will know what to do

I haz a sad.
I really think Bruce has crossed the Bridge.
When I left the house 6/3 Bruce was not acting right,
He was keeping to himself, and just lying in the grass by the tree line.
I left him with my husband to help give my husband a reason to carry on, and because
I felt Bruce would be happier in his own territory.
He was born under a shed near the house, and had come to me from the woods one day.
He just claimed the house as his, but only for food and shelter. He did not use a litter box.
The woods were his litter box, thank you. end of discussion.
When I left I did call my mobile vet to go out to check on Bruce. He did treat him symptomatically, gave him a shot of antibiotics and steroids and showed my husband how to do sub-Q fluids.
But my husband let Bruce go out the next day, and after taking his spot at the tree line for a while he just disappeared. He hasn't been seen again.
I am sad, but I really feel Bruce would have been miserable living indoors, or in a strange land.
Now, my gut tells me has gone to become a forever part of the land he loved. He will become one with the woods, ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
/sorry for the wall of words...I have to vent this pain somewhere.



I am so sorry about Bruce sweetie. (((((((hugs))))))) Then I had to smile a little at the thought that he was able to go his own way.

We lost Mitzi Katz (Miss Kitty to her friends) last week, kidney disease. It
was heartbreaking. We buried her next to her Otto, and I think they are together.


I am so very sorry for your loss!  It is never easy.  Miss Kitty was such a beautiful girl and obviously so very well loved.  I love the patient expression on her face, and she totally rocked that bow. (((((((hugs)))))))

canavar: Hi folks!

First, I want to thank  MizMezcalita again for the month of TF. This is the first time I have been privileged enough to get here early. TY!!

Dijon is doing AMAZINGLY well...she has been at the vet getting daily care for 10 days now and WOW. I couldn't get there  Tuesday or Wednesday but i went yesterday and for the first time since the day the vet picked her up, i looked at her underside. it looks fantastic...i mean it still looks bad....but BUT it looks worlds better than it did.

I brought her some of her favorite foods and a brush. She is kind of a mess still and really needs a bath but it has to wait a while longer. She is sporting a cone-of-shame too, so she cant even groom herself. So i helped her out. It was probably the first time in her life she had ever been brushed and she loved it!

I also decided that when the vet lets her leave, she will just come home with me. She will need to stay in the carrier for a while anyway(it is a decent-sized carrier) so I figured I can just keep her upstairs in my room with the door closed. The 3 other cats won't be happy but they will live.

Sherpaoffered to help me learn to post pics last week....thinking I may take him up on it. Technology and I have a very rocky relationship.

Happy Caturday Everybody!!!


That is such wonderful news!  I am so glad that you & Dijon have found each other.  You are a great human being!

AlienDandelion: *skitters in*
my my my how lucky you all are!
you get me for the WHOLE Caturday!
Yippie!!! yay!!!

yes I'm being a smartarse as my usual.
is that a good thing or not? hmmm...

anyways I went to my best friends grad and I was definitely beaming and out shining everyone else there with my huge smile of happiness :D

....annnnnd then because I was allowed one day of true happiness I then found out that my mom's close friend the one with brain cancer, decided and I quote: "I've quite had enough of cancer's bullshiat, and it can go rightly F*CK itself!" and just like that she was gone. :(
Not gonna lie - as bad as it was for me to do, I laughed when my mom told me that.

[mediumlarge.files.wordpress.com image 600x677]



Hi Sweet Alien!  It is wonderful to see you!  I am so sorry about your mom's friend.  That is such a great attitude though.  She sounds like she was an amazing person.

Coelacanth: Another Sugarbear update: He's had his operation and he's doing fine. It looks like they got the entire tumor. He comes home this Monday.
Thanks everybody who donated and prayed for him!



Thank you for the update!  Please keep us posted.

AlienDandelion: So my younger sister got a kitten a couple of months back...
It's a ragdoll cross...
I finally remembered and asked her if she finally has a name.
She said it and I asked her if I heard correctly...
yup....
PUBES.

I laughed so hard, especially when she was quick to point out that her youngest son is the one that named the beast.
I love it.

Debby7813: An LOL made of Eboni and Buddy when they were just little kittens...who did this one?

[i235.photobucket.com image 375x328]

//my cats, but not my caption


I did this one years and years ago.  I didn't know they were you cats - they were so cute they just begged for a caption.
 
2013-06-15 04:19:48 PM
I think Eli herd me type that I wanted some new pics of him. Nothing but bum hots..grr! He is like a teenager, he comes in for a snack and then right back out he goes. I really wish he could be happy inside, but it was not to be. He was born feral,and I have no idea how long it was before he was found/trapped. I'm thinking trapped given how much he hates a uniform.

Am I crazy if I distinctly hear him say, "I want out now"? He even repeated it when I said, "what?"...*shudder* too durn smart for his own good.

And Roxy being a cat, about a year ago:
[farm4.staticflickr.com image 720x540]


Roxy is soooo cute!  Gotta love that face.  What sort of breed(s) is she?  Chihuahua/Pug?  Chi/Peke?  Chi's adorable, whatever she is!  :D

Buddy says welcome to Caturday Roxie, please enjoy some little blue hippo with my compliments.

Thank you! Buddy is adorable. According to one of those mixed-breed DNA tests, Roxy is half pekingese, a quarter chihuahua, and a quarter English cocker spaniel. She's not hyper at all. She's laid back, but she also loves to play.

That's a work of art!

Our group home got landed with a bunch of lamb...and the guys don't like it.
I fixed one of the roasts en croute with olive oil and a crust of flour, rosemary, garlic and black pepper.
Some of them liked it...but we need a unanimous vote for repeat performances.

spinach gunk: Cool! I never would have guessed the Spaniel, but I can totally see it now. :)


Yeah, I didn't believe it until I did a GIS of English cocker spaniel chihuahua mix. I always thought she was pug/chihuahua until I did that test. From what I've read, those test can be spot on or occasionally way off, but it seems correct for her.

Took step-dad out for errands, and then to lunch. Having to work full time makes it hard for me to get him out of his house for any length of time! He really enjoyed it. Plus I gave him his Father's Day gifts and card today, 'cuz I can't go over there tomorrow. Time to post cat pictures!! :D

I just returned from picking up a trap from the TNR people.
It's set and baited with some KFC Original Recipe chicken skin.
If I catch him this afternoon before 6pm, I can take him in tonight
or tomorrow between 8-9:30 am.
Wish me luck!
