Salem Witch: 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.

Isn't it exhilarating when your flabber gets a good gasting?

When I had to start giving Wimsey eyedrops (Refresh Optive- dry eyes), I'd give him a treat after treatment (wordplay, but not as good as yours).

After about the 3rd repitition, he quit fussing and tolerated them quietly.
Then he made the 'eyedrops=feels better' connection.
He will 'ask' for his eyedrops now when his eyes are bothering him...and not just to get a treat.

Eli is a smart boy from what you've said...you probably won't need Transfusion-To-Go standing by.

Bathia_Mapes: 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. :-_


I guess I was under the assumption that Caturday submissions are a special case; sort of how the Caturday thread goes for 4 1/2 days (when most Fark threads get 3 days or less)

Indeed. Too bad I come from little Podunk town where if you're not married with kids by the time you're 30, something is wrong with you.

Something is wrong with me, I can use common sense which most people back home have never heard of :)

Aww...I am glad you are at least feeling hooman again! I'd suggest a hot Toddy, but then you would not be getting too much done at home! Where I live the pollen counts have been thru the roof since May. So allergies are getting the people that the upper resp. virus hasn't nailed!

I did give him treats after his first two treats. Amazingly his eye already looks better, and he is not squinting. It will be interesting to see how it looks in the morning. The vet didn't think it was caused by getting caught in the storm, but I do wonder. Either that or he's been playin rough with the neighborhood kittehs..

yobbery, you not alone with summer ills & ails.  Somewhat senior acquaintance of mine receiving meds for all kinds of stuff & not reacting well to same.  Sounds like her doc not Rxing her the Good Useful Stuff, or else is trying to figure out exactly what is  Good & Useful,
Discovered I'd forgot  to put some Newsy News in the Belles Burr that I was meant to --  nother thing I may blame on the new computah, since I wasn't supposed to save stuff in the old usual cusstomary fashion i.e. where I could find it!  So I can start the next issue of that early, but not sure if that'll be before Mon. Oughta, if I don't wanna lose the info again.
'Bout time for me to turn into a Residual Lump once more, studiously avoiding all the CAD activity.  Think I said earlier the Sleepy  sequence could be a decent Goody Night set, cept it's a set that links to.

AMEN to that..  have always lived alone.. (do have the occasional visitor).. and I am not lonely.. have a huge 'family'...  and a huge Caturday family... if I could bag Kristi ( special person I wish could be in my life), I would be totally complete... that,s not going to happen, but one can dream..  what,s weird is I have had 4 lady friends move in for a while (one at a time).. needing a place to stay while getting things back together... Tim,s hideaway..... always platonic... two of them were great cooks, one was a sandwich gal and the last one could burn water... sat up many nights mostly listening, with some advising and suggesting thrown in... gave me insights I had never thought about....  and all moved on to better things.... 10 cats running my life is enough.. I can safely ignore them to a point when needed...

That there is riveting work. But I told them that I was still looking for a job down here. They are OK with that. So I'm a bit worn out.

But the biggie this weekend is my SIL's birthday/graduation. I can't imagine going back to school at this age but she finished up her Master's. The party is tomorrow.
