L.D. Ablo: We got a new and unexpected addition to the family today.  Our workmen found her stuck inside a rooftop AC unit.  It was tricky to get her out, but she is in good shape.  There was no mama to be found, so we took her home.  She's eating and drinking and already likes to be held.  She will be hauled in for shots, etc., shortly, but so far she seems 100%.  No injuries and she appears healthy.

She must have a little fold DNA in her.  The tips of her ears are folded over and she could not be any cuter.  At the least, she's a medium hair, but who knows, she might fluff out in the fall.  Oh, and you can't quite see it in the photos, but there is a little grey soul patch right on her chin.

She doesn't have a name yet.  My family is kinda bad about that - sometimes we'll have cats for several months before the right name turns up.  In the meantime, she has other kitties to play with, lots of food, lots of snuggles, and some cozy places to take a nap.

For the heck of it, here are Birdie (l) and Hex (r) snoozing on my bed:

She is adorable! Congratulations!

seems like Dragon is having a very rough patch. For some reason I missed the info on FB yesterday. But then I went to bed super early. Definitely sending support to Dragon and his hooman!


What??? I didn't think Dragon was on FB!! What's going on???? Last I heard, he was doing better!

Evidently he had some serious issues the other day. The info on FB was sent along by another Caturdite. He is holding his own last I heard. No idea what the issue is now. Poor kitteh, poor Sherpa18! I feel for him, and worry about them both.

tigerose: John Buck 41: reigning.cats.and.dogs: sno man: Thank you both. Overwhelmed at the support in just 30 minutes from you guys and gals. Rest assured I will update the situation at some point tomorrow. Right now I hope they can see her in the morning. I originally made an app't this morning for Monday afternoon but it's apparent we shouldn't wait that long. I'm caught up at work so if necessary I will eat the day (as in unpaid; can't use a vacation day unless I ask for it ahead of time---how fu*ked up is that?)) if they can't get her in until late morning or early afternoon.

well,I will add prayers that goggie can be seen Friday asap. Is there another vet around that you trust?


The only other one we've been to was an emergency clinic on a Sunday 20 miles away 5+ years ago that we went to when our beautiful little calico kitty (Callie) got hit by a car. There was nothing they could do for her. Callies' legacy is that both Ripley and Jasper are indoor kitties, so in that sense Callie didn't die in vain. I guess.

My dearest friends, as most of you who do the FB thingee already know (thanks to valnt9) my beloved white boy suffered a severe relapse late last night, and I absolutely lost it after thinking he was getting better (for those of you who are allergic to FB as I am, he stopped eating, drinking, and began having urinary issues again). I honestly did not think he would make it through the night.

Much to my relief, he was still hanging in this morning, but as the day progressed, he would not eat or drink and looked to be in some distress. I spoke to my vet, and we agreed that his demeanor was indicative of one of two things - either he had developed crystals/stones (which at this point is doubtful could be dissolved by conventional methods and would probably require surgical intervention, which in turn he would most likely not survive due to his compromised condition) or his kidneys are finally just shutting down after 18 months of late stage renal failure (which again, is fatal).

We also agreed that it was probably time for me to help him over the bridge. I thought I was prepared for this, but after crying like a little girl, I sat on my bed with the white one on my lap, and asked him if he was ready to go - and if not, he had to show me a sign that I was pulling the trigger too soon.

A few minutes later, he got up and had a drink. And then waited for me to crack open a fresh can of food - which he ate half of. While it still takes him 3-4 minutes in the litter box to urinate, he IS going (no blood, yowling or straining) ... and has continued drinking and eating and napping.

I'm now well aware that the end is inevitably swiftly approaching - it may be a day, a week, hopefully longer - but realistically - probably not .... but now I'm sure he will tell me when.  And it ain't tonight. So instead of going to the vet, I scraped up some spare change and ran out and bought him a half dozen chicken wings and his favorite pouch tuna.

*sorry, i had to interrupt this post to watch the white boy devour half of the aforementioned pouch of tuna, have a drink of water and curl up on my bed for a nap*

Dragon and I want to thank you all for your love, support and good wishes as we both go through this - I for one could not have done it alone. You people are simply the best. I'm not sure how much I'll be around this week, it depends on how my baby boy is feeling, but I'll keep you updated as best I can.

At some point in time we have been where you are now. I'm glad to hear he perked up a bit for you.
This is the toughest thing about owning a pet but we all keep taking more into our home because it would be home without them.
Take care of yourself as well.

Hello everybodeee!

 ^-^
='.'=

Weather's been a bit less brutal...which means the cats can go OUT. I'm grateful they haven't decided that' I'M responsible for the inclement conditions and taken it out on me (i.e., pooping and peeing in EXTREMELY inappropriate locations...or trying to destroy each other...or the furnishings).


The Ice Queen: What a sucky Caturday this week *edit:
FARK CANCER!* :(


Aw man...Hon, I wish you strength and serenity that you may be able to give this to your loved ones as they need it, as well as to yourself. Hope that came out right...

Raven and I work this weekend as usual.
Little Casper is always so glad to see Raven...doesn't even wait for her to get out of her carrier! Jumps right in there with her, little silver arms around Raven's neck *groom groom groom so glad to see you missed you so much play with me PLEASE?*

Casper gets PLENTY of attention from not only her own human, but from his housemates and the staff, but Raven is the only one of her 'own people' with whom she has to socialize.

Back to doing MAJOR cleaning... *le sigh* but it'll be worth it when I'm done, right?
RIGHT?

Somebody, please say "Oh yes, absolutely right!"

Thank Bast and FSM for White Zin-in-a-Box...

Sherpa
I am so sad for you right now, many of us have faced similar struggles at various times with our own furry friends, and when someone we care about is going through that, it brings back memories of our own trials with hopes of extracting some sage advice...
Dragon couldn't have picked a more caring human, and will let you know if and when.
I'm afraid that's maybe not exactly sage advice, but I keep getting distracted with all the dust flying around over here..

In AbettanceAid&Assistance of TheIceQueen's uncle. One of today's offers on the Breast Cancer Site, of the Greater Good 8mbr family, even on sale at $15 marked down from $19.95 + s&h. Either bought or tried to buy one yr or 2 ago for Our Fave Alien when it was also on sale. never pay list price for anything if it can be helped!
Had performance this eve in NKy, got home ~30 min ago. Small but enthusiastic crowd at Carnegie Theatre in Covington, 3 silver medal gps from last yr's World Choir Games. N Ky Univ Student Jazz Ensemble (excellent!), a N Cinti suburb Episcopal Church choir in vestments, & my chorus, not at full but adequate strength. Evening Rounds for Plumbicon's & my owners after climbing out of my monkey suit & all-in-one. Type at ft of pg1.
Also FangQ for photos, of lurvly fluffy Sophia & mewbies.
Will mention am sposed to be flogging cosmetic stuff as chorus fund raiser, that I find to be over priced. $15 a hit, of which my chorus gets $5. RealWomen, no wide selections of nail polish colours. Campaign's called Mascara Madness; 4 kinds of mascara, primer (what!! never heard of mascara primer before!) & oil free eye makeup remover. It's all Mary Kay; lady wife of coach & choreographer herself flogs this. Instruction is to take list everywhere. Theatre folk are said to like the oil free eye makeup remover.  Cold cream works too, but I wasn't sposed to say/type that.
Will dbl-pic this one, as I need to turn into summat inaninmate for while, c ya in daylight.

Oh Sherpa my heart was heavy last night when I heard things weren't going well for Dragon. I hope he can find some strength to get over this hurdle and stick around a while longer. He'll tell you when he's ready to leave, they always do.  I'm glad he chose not to go yet and can enjoy some more chicken wings and tuna.
We all love you both very much and wish there was a way to make this easy. Remember we're all here for you. You have my number too, call me if you want to.

John Buck 41: My little girl needs a trip to the vet tomorrow. We noticed symptoms yesterday. She won't jump or get on her hind legs and 'do paws', can't go up or down stairs, keeps her tail tucked down all the time, sometimes whimpers when she tries to lie down, yelps when she moves suddenly, and her poops are very short and thin (though not necessarily runny). She's almost 9. Hopefully just a bug and nothing serious but Mrs. Buck and I are concerned. If the Caturday gang could toss a good thought towards Jazzy it'd be much appreciated. Thank you.

Aww, sending snuggles & healing thoughts to little Jazzy!  Poor sweet thing.  Fingers crossed that it's just a temporary blip, merely constipation, or something minor that will clear up by itself.

If funds allow, I would wholeheartedly recommend the vet do a geriatric panel blood test while you're there, just as a routine part of the check-up, even if it turns out her current issue doesn't require it for diagnosis.  It can detect a wide assortment of issues very early on, many of which are very manageable and even curable in the early stages long before she would exhibit any symptoms.  Nine is hardly "geriatric" for many dogs, but things like liver and kidney disease, diabetes, certain cancers, etc can get a foothold very sneakily, and I would hate to have anything like that overtake yet another of our wonderful Caturday friends, if it is at all preventable.

Apologies if I'm preaching to the choir -- I thought it certainly couldn't hurt to mention.  If it catches something that helps her feel even a teensy bit better settling into her golden years, why not.

Best wishes for a good appointment tomorrow.  Feel better soon Jazzy!

sherpa18: Dragon and I want to thank you all for your love, support and good wishes as we both go through this - I for one could not have done it alone. You people are simply the best. I'm not sure how much I'll be around this week, it depends on how my baby boy is feeling, but I'll keep you updated as best I can.


Oh Sherpa.... May Ceiling Cat bless you and Dragon both.  Too many of us know what you are going through.  Please remember that in this difficult time, you are not alone.  Sending lots of love and strength.  We know you will do only what is best for Dragon, you always have, and you always will.  So glad he decided to hang around a little longer, please give him a little kiss for me, and take as many hugs as you need for yourself.

Good Meowning. TGIF. Sounds like the week has been brutal to many of our Caturday family.

sherpa18 thank you for your update. It takes a great deal of strength to do what you are doing. Remember, we are here for you, you have my number, call if you need an extra pair of ears. I think many will agree that you are a very important part of the Caturday family. Please allow us the honor of grieving with you, when that moment arrives. We are here, and our arms are open wide.

Pretty much that goes for any one of our family. Lurker or poster.

Now, I gotta blow my nose and wipe my eyes and get ready for work. Hugs and prayers to you all..and scritches...cannot forget teh scritches
