I am putting together a list of Caturdayians who do not play on FB who would want an e-mail update on Dragon. Sherpa has said he will keep me up to date so I can post on FB, but I'll also mail anyone who wants to be kept in the loop. EIP.

I sent you a mail with my address for Sherpa and Dragon updates.
Thank you for trying to keep everyone informed.

powerful katrinka: I wasn't able to get on line until after lunch and was worrying as I scrolled down. Ah a big sigh of relief, Dragon isn't ready to leave yet, continued good thoughts going to him and Sherpa. Another sigh when I read John Buck's good news about Jazzy. May he have many more happy days with you.


Thanks. She did snap at the vet once; didn't quite get him. First time (at least for him) but considering what he was doing to her I can't say I blame her  LoL

Now that Jazzy's out of the woods--knock on wood(s)--I can focus more attention to good vibes/thoughts/prayers towards Sherpa and Dragon.

exvaxman: Yay caturday!
Boo, hiss on cancer and four footers being ill. One of my best friends is putting herself into a hospice next week.

I was much better this week myself, but had to laugh. A neighbor was just released back into her house from an assisted living place. Her first call was to me, begging for "any sort of smoked meat". I was just about to slice a pork butt for our dinner but had the teenager run it over to her. She called two hours later giving thanks but requesting I get her a duck, smoked fish, and a few other things. As well as calling at 6:30 this morning to remind me of her food needs.

On the far funnier side, "Panther explorer" our older alpha cat is getting old, no longer able to do the jumps he used to. But he still requires me to be available to sleep on. Yes, he runs the household. I have a large catnip garden every year. Panther discovered the hiding place last night and brought up a bag almost as heavy as he was that had catnip, toys, etc. This morning my wife woke up and was in hysterics, waking up Panther and myself. The bed was strewn with dried catnip, his majesty was curled up in my arms and snoring. Panther and I both just gave her the evil eye, I rolled over and Panther curled up next to me after giving a half hiss to her. Which caused much more laughter. Panther was still upset when the neighbor called and then curled up with his behind close to my face as he does to show displeasure. More wife laughter. Never marry a dog person.



That is absolutely hilarious! I love your amazing description!

John Buck 41: Jazzy and I are back from the vet. No high temperature, and her anal glands weren't 'too' bad. She has a spot on her bum that she's been scratching/chewing which could account for some pain, and a loose rear kneecap (which I don't recall being mentioned before). He gave her a steroid shot and Prednisone pills.Thanks for all your good thoughts for her last night.

TempThreadsEnd at last! Have meanwhile since Late Dawn Here a) filed my overdue OH sales tax report on 0 sales 2d half of 2013, b) made refrigerator cheesecake for Plumbicon who doesn't eat eggs by selves (happily provide recipe to any/all who wish it) but will if eggs are ingredient, c) achieved temporary salsa here. Next moves: a) skin chicken thighs, bag date & freeze, b) carry on transcribing next women's ham radio mag issue for client.

The sandhills around here pretty much stick to the fields and marshes. Is yours a migrating population or do they stick around? We only get migrants.

They seem to stick around, usually in pairs. I see them wander across some very busy roads, including I-95 once in a while, if there are marshy areas on both sides. It's not unusual to see those roadside signs with "crane crossing" on them here and there.

So today I am sitting in my office working when the Sr. VP taps me on the shoulder and says something.  I got up to follow her into her office.

Coworkers mouths were open, thinking 'Andi is gone'.

nope.  She (VP) told me 'The baby's here'.  The baby is her 14 week old German Shepard.  I went in there and immediately went to the floor to snuggle that HUGE puppy and get puppy kisses.  I have no idea why she told me and no one else. no idea at all.  It could be because I have shared dog horror stories: Dyson unstuffing the sofa, Dyson eating a blue ink pen on my carpet, Dyson running with my unmentionables.

I walked back to my desk and my coworkers mouths were still open.  I had to tell them.  And I walked more than one in there to see the dog.

Still snickering at the whole thing.

what a dog who unstuffs sofas looks like

Here is hoping for the best for both Dragon and you. They always figure out a way to tell you, but somehow it never makes it any easier to let them go. You are both in our thoughts here.

For lajimi, not said if this is significant  natal anniv or not.  Catptionated this to reflect that, purrfectly adequate space between kitty & cake for "On the occasion of your new line significant birthday --" in one of those upper&lower caps fonts.  Chorus director has Significant to be celebrated by chorus come Mon.  Sending you lajimi more music but in barbershop harmony style cuz that's what Plumbicon & I both do.  & no, it hasn't caused cats to run screeching from room. We at least make sure we sing in tune, & neither of us is a baritone (they sing all leftover notes in bbs arrangements).
Torilyndria, tnx for coming in to wish sherpa & Dragon as well as can be managed.  From us that continues, ceaselessly & automagically.
Just heard another insect attempting to fly, better go find & fling oot back door.

Per advice from TFD on my thread, reposting in the Caturday thread =^.^=

I'd really appreciate some advice on getting a new kitten.  I had two cats: Razz (Female, unk. Age, not fixed per vet recommendation) and Kuroi (Male, 10, fixed).  I had to put Kuroi to sleep on 2-7-14 (thanks for the condolences in the Caturday thread this past week folks), and I've noticed since then that Razz seems lonely.

So I've decided I should get a new kitten/baby/very young cat to both help patch up my heart and help Razz not go crazy while I'm away at work or out for any other reason.

Advice time: I was never able to break Kuroi of his occasional spraying (even when he and I lived alone, he'd still mark), so I'm hesitant to get another male cat.  However, I loved the balance of feminine and masculine nature in my pets.  I think both Razz and I would love a new baby girl though too.  So, knowing my abode must have Kuroi scent everywhere, would it be foolish to get a new baby male? Would I be setting myself up for another decade of trying to stop/circumvent natural, inborn behavior?
I can make the other big decisions (rescue vs. craigslist, etc) on my own, but this male/female part I am just stuck on, given the previous inhabitant.
All and any advice would be appreciated!  Thank you in advance :)

yobbery: OlderGuy: I guess no PW on the secondarys yet....

No, they're locked down. However after thinking about it I think I know how this may have happened.
Up to this point I've been managing access lists to restrict traffic in and out of those subnets. About a month ago a new guy in security was having trouble allowing traffic in to a specific host. He didn't know I was using access lists. I bet he loaded a rule set and then when he pulled it out he forgot to set it back to permit all traffic.

lysdexic: This week was close.

Yeah, it really blows when nothing seems to go right and it's all because of stupid shiat. It's never anything exciting like an equipment fire.


As someone who has worked in kitchens for the overwhelming majority of her life, I am kinda an expert in that department. Believe me when I say you totally don't want any of that type of excitement. Ever.

well first I am going to recommend you get a cat urine remover called " the Enforcer" do not laught it really works and you can getmit frm amazon, then, I would say any kitten would do, but maybe if he is more used to a female, then a female kitteh might be good. Just my off the cuff opnion. Maybe a feliway collar would help his spraying, and be sure to check his urinary health.
 
2014-03-07 08:37:14 PM
VOCSL5, repeat condolences, or first if I failed to offer, on Kuroi's having to leave.
I ought not try to advise, as our owners all but eldest came to us.  Rational advice may be, tho: Go Visit locations you may adopt from. Youngling who likes you may choose for you whether female or male. Full stop.
JohnBuck41, please skritch Jazzy for us, tho belatedly. Furrgot to request that.
Has anyone else yet seen the 17pic string Every dog should own a cat ? Rcvd today from chorusmate who'd love a cat or 2 but they both allergic. Need go transcribe a bunch, can prep to fetch if no one's seen yet.
Meanwhile,
i.imgur.com
Wireless may still offer these, haven't checked closely lately.  While I occasionally both knit & crochet, if I tried to make a synthetic pet it'd be ripped to shreds in less than 30 seconds, even odds on that.

**  DRAGON UPDATE  **

So far so good! The white boy is still hanging tough, he decimated his chicken wing last night, and seems to be comfortable - although it is still taking him an extended period of time to urinate (but he IS urinating) he is eating, drinking, and he just  interrupted my trying to type this with a massive cuddle/purr session. He also spent about 20 minutes grooming himself after dinner - also a good sign.

While I have not yet gotten caught up on the entire thread (lots of comments I have to respond to) I once again want to stop and thank everyone for their support, it means the world to both of us.
