Radak: Thanks for the condolences, folks.  It really does help.  Here's two more quick pictures.

She always slept in bed with me.


And boy did she hate thunderstorms!


End of doggie threadjack.  We now return to our regular cat-based programming.  :)


So sorry for your loss. *hugs*

No such thing as a doggie threadjack - on Caturday all are welcome!

quantum_jellyroll: OMG! I got an early morning text that interrupted my sleep. I went outside to call them, and the little feral cat that has always stayed at least 10 feet from me, has come over and flopped over and started begging for pets. If it wasn't a male, I'd swear it was in heat! He's meowing, trolling, rubbing my leg, and begging to be petted some more. I'm flabbergasted.


Sounds like the word has gotten out that you may be an easy mark for some bologna! ;-D

Radak: This isn't a cat, but she grew up with one, and then always tried to play with any other cats she met, often much to their annoyance, but she just thought they were playing back.

She was the greatest companion, and died this week, after 13 wonderful years of life.

I'll miss you Etc.  Thanks for everything you gave me.  Sleep well.

Aww sweetie, I am so sorry.  She looks like she was an amazing friend and it never gets easier to loose one of our little loved ones.  (((((((hugs)))))))

Radak, no such thing as doggie threadjack, all are welcome here on Caturday! except maybe spiders, and some need *snake!* warnings so they can scroll past! We are glad that you trust us enough to come and share your sorrow. We really mean it when we say we share your pain. Our animals are trusted companions, who truly deserve to be mourned. When you adopt an animal you are not buying love, you are opening your heart and home to it.

Thank you all for the kind words of encouragement!  I had all your names typed out and the web paged crashed.  Booo!   Ah well.  I think in the back of my mind, I know it's going to be ok, but when I'm in "Mom-Mode", I'm in a different mindset.

Now to catch up on the rest of the thread....

I think my computer's possessed. Took me 4 times to get this.

I needs HALP!....

The registry trick straightened out the endlessly replicating pages...but now I'm having trouble with YouTube.
Any clip jumps, freezes, digitally pixilates and in other words DOES NOT PLAY SMOOTHLY.
Any/all advice tearfully gratefully accepted...

~*~*~*~*~*~

Riktor's results came back from the vet...all his functions, enzymes and levels are within normal levels.
YAY!
Just wish I could get the 'summer skinny' on as well as he seems to be doing...


Whoopieeeeeeeee!!  *happee dance for Riktor*

Etc was named for /etc on UNIX machines, and her name is pronounced "et-see".

/why yes, it did often cause confusion
//why no, she would not respond to "et cetera"

tigerose: Eli update! He has mild conjunctivitis, although vet did not see anything on the eye, no ulcers etc. It might just have been an irritation (environmental). So, eye drops three times per day for 3 days and then if the eye looks clear, twice a day until next week..*sigh* Eli really flinched when the doc examined his eye, despite the fact that his eyeball was numb at the time. Our vet said, "He really should not be feeling that!" He was very careful with him after that. Good thing too, he flinched again when he looked under the upper eye lid.


Eli will probably come very quickly to associate his eyedrops with "Ahhh...that's better!" and not give you too much trouble.

They know 'what's good for them'...and when it's given with love.

Mom mode is good though. With Mom mode you aren't going to settle for "we don't know" you will keep pickin and squawkin until someone comes up with an answer. It's what we do. *places onion on belt* When my kid was young, we had all sorts of people telling us that he had this or that, I kept saying, "I think he is gifted, and very frustrated in his classroom. Why don't you give him extra work, so he is busy". I fought like crazy to get him into the gifted program in Middle School. I called the board, I demanded they test him. They did. The "shrink" that did the testing said to me, "Oh yeah, he's precociously gifted verbally, has an incredible knowledge base. No wonder he doesn't relate well to his peers!" Best thing I ever did.

So, you go girl! ((hug))

John Buck 41: Bathia_Mapes: John Buck 41: I submitted this as a Caturday thread last night, assuming that any Caturday submissions after thread-close Tuesday morning would be looked at for Thursday night greenlighting, but apparently not. Only links submitted Thursday afternoon/early evening are eligible :( I am unable to get back online til 8pm Mon thru Fri (my work sked is 11a to 7p). I guess I will never get a Caturday greenlight. Anyway, enough of my (self)pity party. This is about a local kitten Freida who has a rags to riches story. Hope you all like it. It's just a couple minutes long and from the local CBS affiliate.
Link

It's not so much that threads submitted before then aren't eligible, but that we get so many overall submissions on a daily basis (an average of 2,000, but frequently more than that) that the ones submitted early like yours end up getting redlit since there's no mechanism in place to set them aside until Thursday afternoon/evening.

Thank you the explanation.


You're welcome. :-_

Taking a well deserved break! The humidity is really high today, making it quite sticky. Nice breeze though. I'm counting down to vacation!!! Which means I will be in the great wireless North. *sigh* might have to go to the marina to get my mail. We'll see.

In the mean time, I managed to give Eli his 2nd dose of eye drops. Without shedding blood!

Congrats!

Looking forward to chasing our foster mom cat down tomorrow for her meds... I have a feeling there will be blood.  might be able to finally get a pic though.  She's a great mom, but not even a little interested in anything to do with us yet.

That is how my cats act. They will come and greet me, then turn their back on me and ignore me for a couple of hours. After they have decided that i have been punished enough, they won't leave me alone for a day or two.

Cisco-moo, I think he's confused by the flashy thing in his face!

Can't leave the old cat out, so here's Snuffy-moo. This is from a week or 3 ago, he'd rather be out in the rain than have his picture taken today. Notice the hanging planter behind him? It's Snuffer's secret catnip supply!

/I don't know why but they've all become "moo" cats lately!

Hooray for SugarBear! Im sure he will be just as happy as you, Coelacanth, for his fur to regrow.

Here in AZ, Molly, Shadow and I are staying indoors and hiding from the weather. If our a/c goes, we're going to the closest pet-friendly hotel. They are currently sprawled out on the tile floor, which i think is feline for "stop being cheap and kick the a/c down a couple degrees!"

Radak.... sincere condolences. I still miss my doggies who have crossed the bridge.
