I broke down last summer and finally got on FB -- would love to get in the loop. Who do I need to contact?

**  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.

tigerose: VOCSL5: 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 :)

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.


What tigerose said.

It seemeth me that males and females tend to divvy up territory differently, hence the nice 'balance'.
YMMV...

Real Women Drink Akvavit: 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.


I work in IT, software developer, and at my last job I got a somewhat frantic call from an accountant saying he had a problem and although I wasn't a help desk person I'd written the last update to his system so could I come and see what was going on. When I got to his office there was an acrid smell before I even opened the door - his PC was on fire. Actual smoke and flames coming from under the desk. I fetched an extinguisher from the corridor and put it out. When I asked him why he didn't just do that himself and hit the fire alarm he said it was an IT thing and he thought he should call us first. This guy has a degree, a mortgage, a family, a car - how does he even manage to operate on a day to day basis?

Awww, come on.... you mean you don't enjoy cleaning up all the yellow powder blown everywhere?


I did enjoy spraying it. Called it "the reverse flamethrower" to give it militaristic qualities in my own mind. I left the clean up to the dish room crew, which totally worked out because when a fire starts in the dish room in a bare corner where there is not even a cable for any equipment, it kind of tells you that they did something they will never admit or tell, but means they also will say nothing while being compared to an incredibly unintelligent and very ugly horse penis in Norwegian at high volume while they are cleaning it up. It was one of the perks of the job, I guess. Also, I did not realize I could swear like a Viking that easily when I was really mad until it came out of my mouth like that.

Several of my clients own restaurants.. was doing control work on a new hood fire system, wiring the fan controls, and the inspector came in to test the system.. he brought a 'test cylinder', which is supposed to be pressure only...  his turned out to be the real thing. I have never seen such a mess happen so quickly... I ran......  the owner went off..  English language, with additional indecipherable words thrown in.. very impressive, and he,s a big dude....  had three county crews there within 15 minutes, joined by two supervisors.. don't think that mistake has happened since......

I saw one similar to that a couple months ago, but even more disgusting. Also, a faux frostbite pre-amputation level Halloween manicure, but that extended to the knuckles and I'm not sure how it would hold up. I do know how to do some pretty realistic artificial wounds with no special make up, but bear in mind that I have a lot of make up. Not as much as I have nail polish, but it's still a lot. (special brushes for EVERYTHING, too!) I think I was a pretty pretty princess in a previous life or something. Or wanted be. Whatevs.

I did find a whole box of nail polish I'd forgotten about - around 30 of them! - and a lot of them are spring and summer colors, so I'm going to ponder those over the next couple days. Right now I'm wearing dark royal purple with green and gold geometric designs and dots on them for Mardi Gras. Going to switch them out probably tomorrow or the next day with something else, even if it's just a different color until I find some inspiration.

Yeah, that's a huge mess, especially anywhere near the food prep area. If our "incident" had not occurred in the dish room and very near closing time, we would have lost a lot of money cleaning everything up to food safe standards. Probably would have had to throw thousands of dollars worth of food out, too.

You were very smart to run, in other words. lol!

Sherpa, I've been sitting here for a while now, trying to think of something to say about Dragon, and there's just nothing that's RIGHT to say, because there can't be. I have been there with my Mr Marmalade, and then his sister a month later, and it was indescribably awful. I know Dragon will be OK because you are there and will be until the end when it's that time, but I'm worried for YOU. I really don't know what to say other than I am really very sorry you are going through this and wish I was nearby so I could come sit with you and you maybe wouldn't feel quite so alone, even though I know and you know you're not alone. I remember that feeling and know you gotta be feeling it too. I'm so, so very sorry. I wish there was something I could do. :'-(
