So sorry for the losses. It is never easy to make the decision. However I strongly believe that our furry companions know when thier days are done, and they trust us to recognize this milestone, and allow them the freedom of spirit they crave. It still hurts like hell.

Oh gad, I need some cat time.  Today was crappy.

After several years of putting it off, I finally made a dentist appointment for today.  I hate going to the dentist, but I could no longer put it off.  So I left work early to make sure to give myself plenty of time.  Hit every damn light as it turns red.  Then as I'm about to turn onto the last street I need...*bam* road closed.  Figure I'll go around the block.  Fine plan, except for the train that decided this was a good time to pull through town (seriously...the hell?).  And then I have the appointment and, hooray!  I get to have a root canal.  So there goes another couple grand that I don't need to spend.

The Ice Queen: So I am having a sucky week. Actually, I've decided that 10/10 is a dies niefastis for me.

Had some tests done. Not normal but not gloom and doom either. Have to have more done in a week just to make sure everything is normal. That I don't care about, I'll deal. I've had to deal with worse before. What really sucks is that I had to have my "squirrel" put to sleep last night.

[i1210.photobucket.com image 850x637]

I got Rocky when she was just a few months old, my uncle found her on the side of the road and she came to OSU with me. Our first year, we got to deal with riots and rats. Then my roommate and I said "screw this" and moved to a place off Bethel Road. Much nicer, shorter commute (which was strange because even though we lived in campus district the first year, it was quicker getting to school from our new place) and I think it was actually cheaper. This gal has gone through at least 5 moves in 11 years (if not more, I'm too lazy to count right now) but never fazed her. She was my Rocket J Squirrel

She was born with a malformed kidney and about 3 years ago, it must have decided to stop working because testing was showing only 1 functioning kidney and it too was starting to fail. Earlier this year, she was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism so we started on meds for that. A couple weeks ago, she started shutting down. She would no longer eat her food that her meds were mixed in. After fighting with her to take her meds, I decided it wasn't worth the war anymore. She resumed eating like normal. A few days ago, she stopped eating. I tried her favorite (Fancy Feast with the little shrimps in it) but she turned up her nose. When she wouldn't eat baby food, I knew it was time. She crossed the bridge last night, strangely enough, when Live's "Lightning Crashes" came on the radio at the vet's office.

This is the last picture I took of my squirrel.

No, I've got insurance, but it's got an annual cap, which the treatment plan will more than exhaust (apparently, I should have just waited a couple more lousy months).  Final cost to me will probably still be around a thousand, though, after copays and balance payments.  Trouble is that it's a nasty enough root canal problem that I have to see a specialist.

The assistant said it'd probably have to come out, but the doctor said "hang on, it doesn't look that bad to me."  So there's that, at least.

/also need a regular filling.

Yep, I'm at CCC. We just did surgery on a bunch of kitties last Sunday so there are definitely new ones on the floor. I want to say enclosures 9 and 12 have the kittens and #11 has teens. We also have a gorgeous male there - black and long haired. He's also mitten pawed. He's an adult and FIV+ which isn't an issue as long as he's an only cat. Very sweet boy, loves to snuggle and get scritches. Hmmm, now I'm doing some thinking :)

OK, here is what I can come up with for pettable kitten therapy

PT - want to say he's in #1, very calm, likes to snuggle
Enclosure 9 - the swarm. They will literally swarm you for attention. There's one in there who has cerebellar hyperplasia (they think it was something he was exposed to in utero or shortly after birth) so he has some tremors but its funny to watch him go after the canned foods.
The black kitty teenage squad - various black kitties that are all around 6 months or so. They will swarm as well, definite attention whores


All of these guys are quite therapeutic, they have Purrrrrrh D's in kitteh petting therapy :)

The 5 I'm fostering right now and in their fuzzy demon spawn phase. Definitely helps you relax because you're too busy thinking "what are you doing/get down from there/do not bite your momma's tail/why are you hanging upside down from the futon/etc to really think about anything else :)

Well, meant to post this last Catuday, but did not see the flags I was looking for, so, here goes my BIG mouth. Our very fine friend Shera18 is in need of funds for his apt rent, and for Dragon's meds/testing. He would never ever ask for help,which is why I am sticking my shnozz in his bizz...i am thonking that the generous souls of Caturday could fund him for a short while. And send your good thoughts/ prayers for him to snarf up a job. I do not have a goal number. He does not want any one to feel obliged. Cause he gets the " economy sucks" thing. And he truely does not think he does anything out of the ordinary..

I say fark that shiat! I know he needs help, but would nevr, ever ask. So, Imma gonna stick my fat neck out and say, " Time to rally round and help someone we know is in need" so there, nyah!

Cats are weird like that.  I remember several years ago, my parents had gone to a local craft fair, and bought a hand-made catnip pillow.  Well, when they brought it home, Nero (RIP 2012) went straight after it.  As he was slobbering all over it and rolling around on it and rubbing it all over his face, Archie (also RIP 2012, a few months later) came up and just sat there and watched.  Nero saw him, and rolled over onto his other side, putting his body between Archie and the pillow.  Archie wandered around to the other side, and just watched him for a few more minutes.  Then he glanced at my mom for just a moment.  Then looked at Nero again.  Then Archie pounced the old Maine Coon, who ran off hissing like a stoned steam-engine.  Then Archie took a turn with the catnip.

Nero and Archie team-mooching my mom for turkey scraps after Thanksgiving one year.
