What a week!!! I had some the DUMBEST customers this week.....makes you wonder how they survived to adulthood. Seriously.
Thank Ceiling Cat for Caturday!!!!! :D

No kidding! I had several patients today who were so stupid I wondered how they managed to get dressed this morning.


Unfortunately the whole country seems to be heading in that direction... it's now the norm rather than the exception...

and on that happy note, I have to go eat, and then go to bed. My neighbors since about the 1st of July have decided that shooting off fire arms at 1 or 2 in the morning is a fun thing to do.
which for me means I don't go back to sleep after that. See you all in the morning! Hopefully well rested. :D

You fix that kind of behavior by shooting back. I'll be happy to take care of them for you. (I didn't say this, I was never here, I'm mostly kidding, mostly. And you have my email). People like that ruin the fun for all the responsible folks out here.

Spinnyr: Mystery (7yrs) sported the Sister Bertrielle ears for the first few days. She greeted each one of the boys with a hiss, a shriek and a close up view of her front claws. (I'm thinkin' she's the one that clocked Thomas)
[i975.photobucket.com image 850x637]

She doesn't want to lay on the rug...but, by gawd...no-one else will either!
[i975.photobucket.com image 850x637]

She played lots of "q-tip in the sink" games for 2 days...in the bathroom -- by herself!
[i975.photobucket.com image 850x637]

Did she learn to 'behave'????? Oh hay'll no!...Her first day out with the rest of the clowder, and now she's sportin' a shiner!
*This* is her 'pissy' attitude....

And when I gently picked her up, and cuddled & murmured to her... I was ever so grateful that it was a brand new, unused, litterbox.
I'm very, very glad that she is comfortable enough to lay around the house "belly-up".

And the 1yr old baby Gizzard.
Her name was Gizmo, until the neighbor 4yr old asked if she could come in and pet the new kitty 'Gizzard'
This was the first time she 'reacted' to nip. Now, she's a nipaholic...

I just realized that I don't have any 'post worthy' pics of Gizz. I'll be right on that, tomorrow morning.

Yes, your memory is correct. The penguins are called "little penguins" and are from Australia. Their migration route takes them through an area where they can get caught up in oil spills. They often cannot be cleaned because it stresses them so much that someone got the idea to knit these sweaters to cover the oil soaked feathers. The ones that can get cleaned lose their natural oils that insulate them so the sweaters help them too. When a news report went out and mentioned that the rescue could use more sweaters, they received so many that they had to tell people to stop. Over the years, they used up the stash (more oil soaked penguins plus the rescue mascot is a life sized Little Penguin toy so they started selling the toy with an optional sweater) and about a year or two ago, the call went out for more sweaters.

Know  why I'm still up at this hour; we didn't get home from Music Man until 11:45PM.  Quite well done tho with Technical Difficulties; wireless mics on some of main characters cutting out. Also some unintended harmony in orchestra.
sherpa, FangQ for properly IDing young wildling. I shoulda known it was a margay; may've had low b.g. at time of save. Type at ft of pg 4.
predle, if you were able to work with Vista then Win8 may hold no actual fears for you.  Plumbicon only speaks of Win8 with added imprecations.  He wouldn't have it on a bet.
Full Moon will come on Moanday, is now waxing gibbous his Smartphone sez.  That reminds me of the line one of our local radio club mbrs uses; What Smartphone messed up this e-mail?  Alternatively, Who cares.what Smartphone messed up this e-mail?

Hey Caturday Family,

I get to hole up and hide at my best friends place tonight so while he's busy playing a game
I get to use his laptop.

Been having a lot of interviews but they are getting no where :(
I have one more week at this place and then I'm back out on the street.
Mega, mega stressing.
Got results from Doctors too but every time I think about it right now I get the shakes and whatnot so I know it's just all too much.

Thank ye gherds for Caturday!!!

Spinnyr: The "Beauty-Butt", Luscious ... Her eyes are light-light blue, and sometimes---don't know why--- they turn really red.


Technically, because the light of the flash occurs too fast for the pupil to close, much of the very bright light from the flash passes into the eye through the pupil, reflects off the fundus at the back of the eyeball and out through the pupil. The camera records this reflected light. The main cause of the red color is the ample amount of blood in the choroid which nourishes the back of the eye and is located behind the retina. The blood in the retinal circulation is far less than in the choroid, and plays virtually no role. The eye contains several photostable pigments that all absorb in the short wavelength region, and hence contribute somewhat to the red eye effect.

Because all white cats are basically furry little terminators.

Soooo happy it's caturday! And I love the thread goes green at 6 am sharp my time! It means I'm home stretching it at work! Woohoo! I have special treats for my furrbabies at home. Special gushy food and catnip before Mama grabs one of them to sleep for the day!

Barby and TC are doing great, they are dued for shots, that comes in a few more days. I'm going to be ostracized for a week. The black oneis smart, he sees the kennel and he runs for the dark space under the bed O.O

He won't be thrilled with me at all... In another couple months, he's going to have his teeth taken care of, and there's several they'll want to pull. My poor old man. It'll be for the best, Mama's promise!!
