Snuffybud: I just watched the linked video and I'm wondering about the head rubbing behavior that they described. Yes, I know it deposits a cat's scents on you but Snuffycat has a different use for it. Besides the scent depositing it's a "hey you, pay attention and follow me" behavior. It really comes into play if I'm sitting at the kitchen table and he wants to go out. He'll head butt my leg going away from the door then turn around and hit me again headed towards the door. If I ignore him he'll do it again and again until stupid me realizes he wants something. That something is about 95%"let me out dad", occasionally it's "follow me to the bedroom and scratch me until I decide to bite you". I'd rather have Snuffers get my attention this way, Desi does it by reaching up and slowly sinking his claws into my leg!/See you all Monday, going to be out of town with limited internet this weekend//Tupper Lake here we come!
yobbery: Has the new electrical service installed this week. I thought I had corrected all the mickey mouse wiring except the hokey wanna-be 4 way switch that runs the rear spots. Never did work right and I just never got around figuring out what was up with it. Well, it turns out it was dual fed, and when they wired the new panel (adhering to code) each feed ended up on a different phase. It was quite a light show when they turned on the power. They got it straightened out but one of the switches is now offline, and of course it's the only one we really use.I'm going to rough in the wire they need in order to correct it this weekend. It'll save me the cost of about 3 hours labor @ $85/hr.Besides that everything else is now good.[www.smugmug.com image 500x500]
Also need to sympathise with TheIceQueen re the summertime bronchitis. Citrus juice or tea, with or without additives.
The Ice Queen: Little Miss Andi gets to go in for spaying on Sunday since she finally got over the 2# mark. She's going to go insane from having to be chill for a few days but even as cute as she is, don't need any little Andis running around.Actually, I think she's in the Meerkat stage or something, you now, tail straight up and bouncing around instead of running....[i1210.photobucket.com image 768x1024]
sharbear: Hi good people! Happy Caturday! I like how the English call cats "Moggy's". I have to say that my kittehs loved tummy rubs and head rubs, I just think it's different for all cats. OlderGuy did you happen to get an Amazon package? If not, let me know and I'll do some tracking. We had fun picking out doggie toys today, it's official, we are God parents to Sadie the hot dog dog. One step at a time. :-)

The Ice Queen: So this has been an up and down week.First, for those who were here last week, uncle went in for another biopsy. This time, the surgeon (a new one thank you very much) decided to just go for the liver. His reasoning was, if we find the cancer there, it basically doesn't matter about the sites on the esophagus and lung. The good news is, the mass on his liver was a cyst so at least now we have a shot with chemo/radiation where as if it was cancerous, he was going to be sent home on palliative care plan. Not that having cancer on the other two locations are great but at least we have a better change of fighting and winning with those locations. If it was in his liver, we were basically screwed.Then I catch bronchitis. Serious, its summer, you shouldn't get bronchitis in the summer.Then I just got off the phone with mom, my grandparents' dog doesn't look like she'll make it through the night. She hasn't wanted to eat for a couple of days and today has done nothing but sleep. Her kitty (yes, she has a cat, its so cute) has been sticking close by and they've been keeping her comfortable. Its just really hard on them because my aunt gave them this dog over 10 years ago and she passed away from cancer back in 2005 so to them, its like losing her all over again.So now that I'm back at the bottom of the weekly roller coaster, me thinks I'll go but a power ball ticket and see if I can get myself back to the top of the hill :)
Try this again, after sno man's excellent osprey shots & pretty good one of 2 of their nests. If they nest like that over here, we haven't seen 'em. Think they're other places than around here.

sno man: Finally drove past the 3 osprey nests on 5 hydro poles I mentioned last week, with my camera in the car (!)I could only get two of the nests in the same shot, there are some trees and a slight hill that conspire to obscure the third nest...[imageshack.com image 600x400]The closer nest was occupied when I pulled over, a bit away. I tried to get closer to get a better shot and the bird took off.. I never did get a really clean shot, but did get these...[imageshack.com image 850x566] [imageshack.com image 600x400]...better osprey shots next time!
Sickapie: Spinach Gunk, I thought I read that you were feeling sad. If you posted somewhere why, and I missed it, I'm sorry. I hope that happiness finds you well.

I have 4 osprey nests within a couple miles of me. Hope to get some more shots this weekend with a tripod as opposed to just using the roof of the car for stability.

My little Buddy's condition is slowly deteriorating. He was doing a bit better last week but is not so good right now. He's gone through days like this and bounced back nicely, but each time the period of good days in between gets shorter. I don't want to think about You Know What just yet, but it's hard not to. :( I love him so much and it's so hard to see him not feeling very good. This on top of my regular everyday anxiety and depression. I'm allowing myself to smoke up to one cigarette a day to take the edge off. So glad Caturday is here though. Good laughs and good friends are immeasurable sources of comfort.Buddy in the halcyon days of 2004[spinachgunk.smugmug.com image 640x483]How is Little Pie doing these days, by the way? Hope the little sweetie's OK.
