Hey all. We ended up staying an extra day (til early Tuesday morning) in the Deep Maine Woods. Didn't get home til almost 1pm, well past threadclose. So sorry I missed being able to say how sorry I was for (what seemed like) many sads, and also missed Aliens many posts. Actually just finished catching up on the thread early this evening, as there was no rush since I couldn't reply to any posts. Got some nice pix of a couple moose, a bunny, and a hummingbird.

I'm pretty much up and running.
Making notes of stuff I need to go back to get.
For example, some of the fonts I have downloaded, and some system sounds.
Nothing big or earth-shattering, but nice to have and to make it feel like "mine".
Thanks for asking.

My brother sent me a picture today of three gray cats who showed up to camp out on his daughters' playskool table on the patio:

Only one of them belong to him.  He's not sure why the other two were there, but he called it a "puddle of gray fur."  Said they spent most of the day sleeping.

Fred met me at the gate when I got home.. waits on the retaining wall for the car to show up... flopped down on the sidewalk to get his bellyrub.. I guess it is a required part of greeting at this point..  he has picked up another habit : when I come out of the basement after feeding Taylor, he will run to the tree base and scratch and squat...   I think demonstrating that the plumbing still works properly.... after two serious blockages and a new diet ... maybe doesn't want the happypill and vet visit...  which has gotten way better.. last trip he was sorta resigned about it.. vet said he just went along with everything.. thank God... stroooonnngg kitteh, and quick...  feral background still kicks in sometimes...

I hate to even say it, cuz I don't want to be the Caturday bummer, but I know some of you guys pay attention and will wonder. My Grandma died Tuesday morning at 11:25. She couldn't talk or move, but she could hear us and would make faces or noises to respond a bit, so we made sure at least one of us was with her at all times, so she wouldn't be alone and scared. I had just finished my turn for a 2 hour nap and went to go sit with her so my mom could get a nap. I sat next to her, told her I loved her for probably the eleventybillionth time while I was sitting there holding her hand, she responded a little bit, took a few more breaths and died.

Please do not get bummed out or think "omg! what do I say?" (like I do) or hesitate to have fun and raise the basement! I like fun, I am fine, will be fine and we knew this was coming. We are sad and a bit lost, but the last few years were hard, the last couple weeks nightmarish. She actually told me about a week before she died "I'd leave but you won't let me go". Mom and I both told her that when she wanted to go, it was OK, that we'd be sad, but we'd understand and we'd be OK. We are OK for the most part, just not really sure what to do with ourselves and very sad, but at the same time we are happy that her suffering is over. Mom is going on her scheduled vacation Sunday still, because she needs it badly, and we'll figure out who is going to take her and grandpa's ashes back to Norway when we get them back. So, on with life, best we can.

Thank you to my Caturday family and all the other Farkers who have given me tons of support, lots of hugs and ear skritches for teh kittehs and pics of things to make me smile. My grandma loved you guize too, even if she didn't understand most of it. lol!

Thank you, SG. Heh. I told my mom yesterday that right before Grandma died and I told her how very much I loved her, and she responded a bit "what I mean by that is she acted like she was trying to say something, I don't know what, maybe 'quit touching me' or 'just leave me alone' or something, but I'm going to tell myself she was saying 'I love you too, bug'". My mom lol'd. I was my grandma's happy little love bug, and her favorite person ever ('cept grandpa when he was alive), so no matter what she was trying to say, I know what she meant in her heart.

Now here's a goggie vs kitteh acceptable areas for petting guide:

As nifty as large predators are, and as much as I love kittehs, and as much as playful kittehs are fun, I'm kind of thinking the large, predatory, playful variety of kitteh would fall under "terrifying" if it were a real world situation rather than the "yay!!! get 'im!" *bounce bounce bounce* I'm getting from the pic when I know the real action is safely far, far away from me.

You'll get it eventually. My mom's new laptop runs Win8 and she was fighting with it rather than exploring it. Then again, I'm the one who still hasn't even figured out her camera she's had for months now, so I'm not one to talk about my Mom's silliness with a new OS, am I?

The biddies came in the mail on Wendsday morning, one did not survive the trip but the rest are looking really healthy and strong. My son identified the free exotic breed as a blue chochin. A large breed with feathers all the way down its legs, they will cover its feet when it is grown. I have named it Frodo.

Type at ft of pg 1 after in2it on a 21-post roll.  Won't cite "butter", dog or T..  Or was that insomnia???
See what's greenlit is combination of double sub: The Rescue: A True Story starring Lucky was headline of  post 10PM sub last eve.  By time I found 1st one there were 5 comments, by some of our Usual Suspects.
FangQ both in2it & others incl sherpa for overnight posts.  I turned into Lump a bit past 11 & this didn't seem to be up yet, tho initial post begs to differ.
Oh Yah --
Tried to say Good Meowning with the good little GoodSearch Kitty pic; uploaded 2x but unable to find/lay mousie pointer on it either time.  Also need Tutorial for how to get pix outta my accumulateds Over Yonder.
So Appreciate predle's comments re New Computah.  May have finally figured out how to get captions to land where desired on this one (swearing furrvently at WinPro7 meanwhile).

The free one is a surprise chick. I think they are just finding a way to get rid of excess roosters, I will be very surprised if Frodo is a hen. But it is fun to try and guess what they sent.

  My son was able to get the breed right away because the chicks of this breed are so distinctive. It is a very calm chick compared to the others, he kind of looks like a little penguin next to the others.

  I moved them into the little house with my old crippled hen Suzy, she just gave me a WTF look when I started putting them in with her. She pecked at the few that came near her but did not make any effort to attack them. In a few days she should start to mother them. She fostered King George and Esmeralda for me when they were biddies.

Schoep, the dog, went over the Rainbow bridge on Wednesday at the age of 20. His servant, John, received so much money in donations for his care that he is now using the extra to help "30 or 40 Schoeps" who live with low income families in the north Wisconsin area get medical care (including geriatric care and spaying/neutering of the youngsters). John credits Schoep with saving his life when he was suicidal and wants to do what he can to help others keep their pets.

I zeroed in on Bill the Cat right away. Bloom County was my favorite comic strip in like forever. I even still have my Bill the Cat plushie. Now that Bloom County is gone, I like Get Fuzzy, of course. Bucky is my cartoon kitteh fave with the crazy and the crafty and the thinly veiled (if veiled at all) insults.

Condolences to Real Women & her mom on departure of Gran.  Figures it'd be shortly after last week's Caturday closed.  BTW, Wasabi-Chan, last Caturday's button-'shroom-outfits-to-heal-in kitty, got space on Care2Causes also.  Haven't seen her on LoveMeow  yet but that may be an oversight.

Remember it well, and though Schoep (pronounced 'Shep', maybe?) has gone, 20 is a damn good life for a dog and the owner is obviously doing great things with the donations.

She couldn't talk or move, but she could hear us and would make faces or noises to respond a bit, so we made sure at least one of us was with her at all times, so she wouldn't be alone and scared. I had just finished my turn for a 2 hour nap and went to go sit with her so my mom could get a nap. I sat next to her, told her I loved her for probably the eleventybillionth time while I was sitting there holding her hand, she responded a little bit, took a few more breaths and died.

Please do not get bummed out or think "omg! what do I say?" (like I do) or hesitate to have fun and raise the basement! I like fun, I am fine, will be fine and we knew this was coming. We are sad and a bit lost, but the last few years were hard, the last couple weeks nightmarish. She actually told me about a week before she died "I'd leave but you won't let me go". Mom and I both told her that when she wanted to go, it was OK, that we'd be sad, but we'd understand and we'd be OK. We are OK for the most part, just not really sure what to do with ourselves and very sad, but at the same time we are happy that her suffering is over. Mom is going on her scheduled vacation Sunday still, because she needs it badly, and we'll figure out who is going to take her and grandpa's ashes back to Norway when we get them back. So, on with life, best we can.

My condolences to you.. very similar with my Mother.. apparently unconscious, labored breathing.. but she seemed to be able to control some facial muscles..  wrinkles on her forehead would move, like she was acknowledging that she could hear us.. I knew that she was still there..  was on the phone with my slightly older sister and there was definite awareness by Mom..  then the movement slowed and stopped.. she looked very peaceful.. and you could feel her temperature dropping... we all said goodbye and she left us... great Lady, best Mom ever... we all were very lucky to have the family we had.. we still keep in touch..   It does help to get it out.. and we are here for each other...  and Mom would have loved Caturday... and the Family....  not sure about CAD... somewhat risqué for her...

You'll get it eventually. My mom's new laptop runs Win8 and she was fighting with it rather than exploring it. Then again, I'm the one who still hasn't even figured out her camera she's had for months now, so I'm not one to talk about my Mom's silliness with a new OS, am I?

Cat For Adoption - Please Help - DC/VA/MD- Can Travel (Re-Post w/ Updates)


img.fark.netView Full Size



Hi Caturday Farkers - I am in need of help in re-homing one of our cats, and am hoping someone on here may be able to help. The cat in question is one of the best cats in the world and we are sure whoever adopts her will be thrilled to have her. She's the sweetest and lowest maintenance cat I've ever seen. She's a fluffy marshmallow cat that loves cuddles and cheap cat food.

Question: Why is one of the best cats in the world up for adoption?
Answer: We have three cats - Momma-Cat, Beast-Cat and Douche-Cat. We adopted them as a package deal in Dubai when some asshole tried to drown some kittens outside our apartment; one morning we woke up to the sound of Momma-Cat screaming over the bucket her kittens were in. A quick fishing trip later we were the proud owners of two kittens and a momma cat. They all got on great until two years ago when we took the momma cat to get her teeth cleaned - from the moment she got home she has been in a fight with one of her kittens, Beast-Cat (now grown up into a 16 pound monster twice his momma's size). We have tried everything but with no luck and have come to the conclusion we need to find her a new home as the regular ass-kickings she's getting are taking their toll on her.

Question: Why is she up for adoption now and not a year ago?
Answer: We recently had a baby, and since then are no longer able to give the cats, who are separated in different parts of the house most of the time, the attention they need. Further - a couple of times they have gotten in fights near the baby and it's a risk we can't continue to take.

Question: Why isn't Beast-Cat up for adoption instead?
Answer: Beast-Cat is up for adoption if we can't find a home for Momma-Cat.

Question: Beast-Cat sounds scary, will he eat me?
Answer: No. Beast-Cat is a gentle giant. He likes pats and playing fetch. He is a lot more energetic than Momma-Cat and more vocal, although despite his size he has a tiny kitten mew. He is pretty smart for a cat and can open doors. He looks similar to Momma-Cat but has a pink nose.

Question: I am a masochist and don't have any easily breakable possessions I care about, is Douche-Cat up for adoption?
Answer: Sure, although only once we find a new home for one of the other two as he tends to be a calming influence on the others. Douche-Cat is a small and wiry little bastard with a speckled coat and white paws/belly. He looks like he's wearing a tweed tuxedo. He is very energetic, tends to knock things off shelves and has a surprisingly loud and unusually jarring meow. He doesn't like being picked up and will hunt you for a few days after if you try. He's not keen on pats but if you make a fist and hold it out he will nuzzle it, like he's rubbing faces with a cat. He enjoys playing with ribbon-on-a-stick toys, which will be provided.

Question: Why not put her in a Cat Shelter?
Answer: She does not do well in cages and living in one would be a strain on her that we could not inflict on her, and would also make it hard to find someone to adopt her as they would not see her at her best.

Question: Have you tried X?
Answer: Yes

Question: Is she house trained?
Answer: Yes. They are all in good health and have the usual cat vaccines. They have not been de-clawed and will come with a scratching post.

Question: In the photo she looks like she's at the Vet - is she dying?
Answer: No - She was losing patches of hair due to over-cleaning herself out of anxiety due daily ass-kicking by Beast-Cat. She is recovered now as we have completely separated them into different parts of the house, a solution that is not possible in the long term as it basically involves locking her in the bedroom in the attic, which isn't fair on her and she deserves a home where she can get the love and attention she deserves.

Question: What is the return policy?
Answer: Our goal is to find her a new home where she will be happy, not just dump her. If the adoption does not work we will be happy to take her back and try to re-home her elsewhere.

Thanks much to everyone for the love and support.

tigerose: Real Women Drink Akvavit I am sorry for your loss. She joins the ancestors, there to feast and tell tales for all eternity.

Hugs to you and yours.


She's probably one of my disir now, just the "Why is it always so dark in here? Open the blinds and get some light in here!" or "you can buy clothes that AREN'T black, you know. What's wrong with pink?" or "I don't like that man. He needs a hair cut. Are those tattoos? Dear Jesus! Is he GERMAN?!?" variety instead of the helpful advice variety. LOL! I love my Grandma and her stubborn self. Actually, she was Lutheran, so they're probably swilling coffee and trying to convince the big dude/dudette/whatevers may or may not be there/wherever to go easy on the Heathen granddaughter.

For those unfamiliar with disir, think "ancestral mothers", but the original Germanic tribes version (Scandinavians being one of the original Germanic tribes and blah, blah, blah).

2013-07-19 06:30:02 PM  
Thank you, ArmednHammered. I actually went through most of the grieving process before she died, which was actually one of the harder parts of it because when I realized that's what I was doing, I felt incredibly guilty. I have no idea why, but I did. At this point there really is just trying to remember what "normal" life is like again. After over 10 years of caring for her, about half of those on each end of it being full-time, hands on type care, that's going to be hard to remember how to do. We'll get there, though.

Greetings All!!
I've pretty much been just lurking for the past few months. (Had a bizzie!)
I also, recently... 'fell over the line' of crazy-cat-lady.
I went from my 3...to my 4....still on the *CCL - in training" side....
to being the slave to a blended clowder of 9. That's nine.

I am SO proud of this photo.
It took them only 6 weeks to train me to ...roll out the rug (aka trough), ring the bell to 'awaken/arouse' them, and get 8 bowls filled with their treat of gooshey foods. ( I split 3 cans 8 ways... and give the 'old man' a tsp &½ of baby food)

Been a really long week in the basement of Mordor. Told the boss I'd had enough for a week and left at 2:00.
Went out and found some of the "Farking Wheaton w00tstout" made by Drew, Wil Wheaton and Greg Koch of Stone Brewery. I have to say, it's pretty damn tasty. It's dark, thick, hasn't been hopped to death and best of all it's 13% alcohol, what's not to like? I grabbed three of the 24 Oz. bottles and I don't expect them to last the night. ;-) It's good enough that I'll buy a case if my local store has one available.
/not a paid spokesman etc. etc.

Please excuse me while I go whip up some chili for dinner so I can do the following later....

The biddies came in the mail on Wendsday morning, one did not survive the trip but the rest are looking really healthy and strong. My son identified the free exotic breed as a blue chochin. A large breed with feathers all the way down its legs, they will cover its feet when it is grown. I have named it Frodo.
[fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net image 850x637]

Don't they tell you what they are sending??? Or is it supposed to be a surprise?

The free one is a surprise chick. I think they are just finding a way to get rid of excess roosters, I will be very surprised if Frodo is a hen. But it is fun to try and guess what they sent.  My son was able to get the breed right away because the chicks of this breed are so distinctive. It is a very calm chick compared to the others, he kind of looks like a little penguin next to the others.  I moved them into the little house with my old crippled hen Suzy, she just gave me a WTF look when I started putting them in with her. She pecked at the few that came near her but did not make any effort to attack them. In a few days she should start to mother them. She fostered King George and Esmeralda for me when they were biddies.

There is always the slim chance that Frodo is a girl, if he decides to be a roo my son has dibs on him. When George came in the garage he went up to the cage and checked out the little ones. They looked so small next to him. They all stopped peeping and stood in awe as the looked them them over.
I moved them into the new little hen house with old Suzy last evening. Today she is keeping an eye on them but they are not too sure of the giant chicken in their world. Hatchery chicks have never seen an adult bird. They have much to learn.

catmandu: Many of you may remember when this photo went viral (man comforting his arthritic, geriatric dog in the waters of Lake Superior because floating like that gave the dog relief):

[i283.photobucket.com image 634x416]

Schoep, the dog, went over the Rainbow bridge on Wednesday at the age of 20. His servant, John, received so much money in donations for his care that he is now using the extra to help "30 or 40 Schoeps" who live with low income families in the north Wisconsin area get medical care (including geriatric care and spaying/neutering of the youngsters). John credits Schoep with saving his life when he was suicidal and wants to do what he can to help others keep their pets.


I am so sad for his loss.  I remember the story well!  Thanks for sharing that with us.

My day has been really crazy (no internet, then tech support, then internet, then phone calls, then landlord visit!)  I am behind on catching up on the thread.  Will do my best!!!  Might get caught up in time for bed....

Don't know for a fact, but have heard that service pack 1 for Win8 is out... supposedly has a fix for the menu issue.... couldn't find it in MS d/l center....



I checked on microsoft's website and there aren't any SP's available for Win8 yet - I'll keep checking. I've lived with Vista for five years. If I can do that I think I'll probably be able to deal with Win8. All I need is time and patience, neither of which I have an overabundance of right now

yobbery: OlderGuy: sherpa18: gremlin1: another hot,muggy day. 88 feels like 95 and humid.

Is that all? When I checked my balcony thermometer an hour or so ago, it was still 101° :o(

[i415.photobucket.com image 500x375]

Was 97 here today..  had planned to hit Busch Gardens tomorrow.. forecast of 96 + possible TStorms.. will reschedule for another weekend...   humidity yesterday was so bad you could see it......

We've been in the 90's with oppressive humidity for a few days. A front just moved through about 2 hours ago and temps are now in the mid 70's. Still humid but It feels great.

dahmers love zombie: It's been sorta kitteny around the love zombie household this past few weeks:

That's not Dad in the picture.  He's been fixed for more than three years.  He found a kitten and brought it home.  She grew up and had kittens in our garage.  Now there is insanity and fur.


Awww......that's cute!!  :D

It started with a single screw.....

In early spring the screw popped that was holding my electrical weatherhead to my house. Second time it's happened....no big deal. I normally handle any and all home repair myself, but because the sheathing on the feeder cable is worn and due to be replaced (...and because I'm not feeling particularly suicidal this time around) I decided to call an electrician. My intuition was correct, the feeder cable needs to be replaced. I was ready for that but I wasn't aware that sort of repair required inspection before power is restored.....and in order to pass inspection I'll need to have my entire service replaced.

I have two fuse/breaker panels. One is near the entrance in the garage and the other is upstairs...both need to be updated along with all associated feeders. Oh, did I mention the meter socket is bad too?

I'm nervously awaiting the estimate. I'll still get other estimates but this guy comes highly recommended. He also reeeally want to buy my Lincoln. We may be able to work something out.

This is me trying to figure out Windows 8. About the only thing I've been able to figure out is how to post to Caturday.]

After two weeks and numerous installs, I'm pretty good at Win 7.
I even have it looking familiar!
No, you cannot have!

I lived with Vista for 5 years, I'll figure out Windows 8.OlderGuy: sherpa18: predle: This is me trying to figure out Windows 8. About the only thing I've been able to figure out is how to post to Caturday.

ArmednHammered: Been a really long week in the basement of Mordor. Told the boss I'd had enough for a week and left at 2:00.
Went out and found some of the "Farking Wheaton w00tstout" made by Drew, Wil Wheaton and Greg Koch of Stone Brewery. I have to say, it's pretty damn tasty. It's dark, thick, hasn't been hopped to death and best of all it's 13% alcohol, what's not to like? I grabbed three of the 24 Oz. bottles and I don't expect them to last the night. ;-) It's good enough that I'll buy a case if my local store has one available.
/not a paid spokesman etc. etc.

Please excuse me while I go whip up some chili for dinner so I can do the following later....

The "Beauty-Butt", Luscious (7 yrs old). I have very few pix of her 'full on face'...but quite the collection of shots of her ears, neck, back, tail, side, butt.

Her eyes are light-light blue, and sometimes---don't know why--- they turn really red.

She can whoop that tail around, I'll tell ya!

She sat there and stared at the new 'drinkwell' for quite a long while.
