Manic Depressive Mouse: I have a question about pukey kitties. Mine has a tendency to throw up if he eats things too quickly, though he's usually ok with his standard kibble. Sometimes, it seems he can handle other foods, sometimes he can't. Any ideas on how I can still give him treats and the occasional scrap without having to wash the floors after him? It's often a very small amount that he can handle - for example 2 cat treats are ok, but if he has 3, then he's sick. Also, he often throws up several times and in different places. Do other cats do that? Why?!?!
Thanks!


Kay did that.  I was never able to figure out what the deal was, entirely.  The only thing that worked even remotely well was to just feed him very slowly.  I'd give him some food, then let him eat, and if it stayed down for more than half an hour, let him have some more.  Of course, being a cat, that didn't always work out.  I'll recommend having a chat with your vet about it, because that could be a food sensitivity causing him issues (he might need special food).  It could also have a number of somewhat more serious causes that would be better to rule out just to be on the safe side.  (Not to scare you, but Kay's pancreatitis and Archie's stomach cancer were also accompanied by an inability to keep food down, so it's definitely worth a vet trip to make sure it's not something serious).

Yes, I have been good! I have not spent ANY MONEEZ. Not that I really have any, but you know what I mean. I didn't even buy my monthly Julep Maven box o' nail polish. Shocking! Actually, that's incredibly shocking, but I have hundreds of polishes, I didn't fall in love with any of this month's colors and I don't 'need' to collect ALL of their releases or anything, so I'm saving it for the Mouse House. I am so proud of me. :-D

Actually, I just used a standard/basic recipe for soft snickerdoodles that's been in one of my notebooks practically forever, but I browned the butter first and then put the browned butter in the fridge to solidify, then brought it out again until it was at room temperature and followed the recipe from there. So really, I just added a ton of time to it, but it's "hands off" time and it added a nice, warm, almost nutty flavor to them as well.

What constitutes healthy eating for you?  Do you have a diagnosis?


My diagnosis was severe iron deficiency anemia. Type 2 diabetes also showed up in the various blood tests. I ate awful for months as my health declined because I didn't have the strength to do proper shopping (often eating only eggs, cheese, and bread for weeks) and my body could no longer compensate. Healthy eating for me means proper meals with emphasis on higher iron and lower carbs with minimal processed food. I also need to lose weight so I am counting calories as well.

I used to work with a man that owned a parrot. He'd had it a couple of years without the bird saying a word. the man got married and his wife tried to get the bird to talk, still nothing. When he brought his newborn son home from the hospital the bird took an interest in him. Within weeks the bird began crying like the baby, which I can imagine was really irritating. As his son learned to talk so did the parrot. By the time his son was about 5 the bird and his son were having conversations.
It was almost like the bird was waiting for the right person to come along.

If you like ginger flavor stuff, try using a regular ol' sugar cookie recipe and then toss in some ginger powder and lime zest. It's a nice change and the ginger and lime is nommy together. It's a classic combo (in my mind). I'm actually pondering making some lime curd with a bit of fresh ginger in there to spread on shortbread as well. I'd just chop up the ginger and add it at the beginning of the recipe for the cooking process, then strain it out when the curd is done. I always strain my curd after I make it because I don't want any tiny bits of cooked egg showing up in there and usually replace the lime zest after straining with a bit of fresh lime zest (I like the green flecks in the curd - looks purty!), but I'm thinking adding more fresh ginger would overpower the lime and then it wouldn't be gingered lime curd anymore. I'm just waiting to gather more cooking energy to try it out.

It was almost like the bird was waiting for the right person to come along.



That is so cool! Pirate changed his own name from the one he had for 37 years about 6 months after we got him. Hubby thought it would be fun to teach him "pirate" & "arrrrr" after we saw one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. The bird picked up the words almost instantly and within a week or two he started saying things like "yeah, I'm Pirate", "Pirate go poop", "Pirate's in here". I asked him if his name was Sugarfoot or Pirate & he said "why do you want to know?"

He has gone from just repeating words & phrases to actually having conversations with us. He is so very smart and funny. I have been keeping a journal of some of the things he has said over the years and it is really impressive how he can pick up a phrase and then use it appropriately in another context. I regularly tell him that he is the best & one morning he says "you always say I'm the best". I told him that I tell him that because it is the truth, he really is the best. The next day he said "you and Paul are the best".

Abby actually grew into her ear tufts so they're not nearly as impressive as they were when she was a wee one. She only weighed just under 1 1/2 lbs when I caught her. Her vet & I think she may be part Turkish Angora because of how silky her hair is, and it doesn't mat hardly at all. I recently had to cut a tiny 1" one from under her front leg, but that is the first one I have found in 3 1/2 years.

Thanks, saved it to my favorites, then noticed a recipe at the bottom for soft gingersnaps, so I saved that too, I love ginger flavored stuff.


This is my favorite molasses ginger cookie.
3/4 C vegetable shortening (works better than butter)
1 C sugar
1 egg
1/4 C molasses
2 C flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp cloves
3/4 tsp ginger
Cream shortening and sugar, add egg and molasses, stir well. Add dry ingredients, mix well.
Form into balls the size of a walnut and place 2 inches apart on cookie tins covered with parchment paper. (or grease the cookie tin)
My Mother found this, it was labeled Elevator Lady Cookies. The author of the book got the recipe from a woman who was riding in an elevator with her.
