TOWG: I am beyond devastated. yesterday my son had to make the hardest decision we pet owners have to face. His courage was more than I would expect from a 19 y/o young man. Toby was a sweet young dog,RIP you good boy. After returning home I discovered that my beloved best friend of 8 1/2 years, Scruffles, was in respiratory distress so off to the emergency vet again to see a second loved one be helped over the bridge in the space of 6 of the worst hours of my life. RIP Scruffles. I know it will get better in time but right now I still can't stop crying.


Those times are our worst fears, and our worst realities... we all have to go through that at some point, and avoid thinking about it as much as possible... until suddenly we are there..  decisions have to be made, it is our duty to those we care for.. at some point it is time to go, for all of God,s creatures... savor the memories you have enjoyed.. your life has been enriched by them, and you have given them a better life in return..  our condolences for your loss..  time will heal the wound, and when you are ready there are so many that are looking for a home and companionship..

The Ice Queen: What a sucky Caturday this week :(
Uncle has been given just days to live, cancer too much.
Anyone who has any of those "FARK Cancer" pics, feel free to pic, will probably be loading my Facebook page up over the next few days.....


Sending hugs and strong mojo via the force to You and your Uncle.  May the power of Caturday have a healing effect on body and soul.

And hugs and healings all round for all the good souls on Caturday.

/thugs and heelings from our soles to the trolls

valnt9's comment of ~11:30 last eve I type rt beneath -- my husband had a co-worker who was so bad at his wedding his best man's toast said...just because you're married does not mean you're allowed to procreate.
he was! that bad.

We weren't, actually I wasn't, either; for not wishing  to convey my defective DNA to child who might  die of complications of Type 1 diabetes, as cousin's dtr did. Actually encouraged to apply for Joslin Diab Ctr's 50 yr medal, now I've achieved 55 yrs survival since diagnosis; if accepted, might also be asked to come to Boston to partic in medalist study of long-livers. Original documentation officially discarded in mid 1960s, but They Say letter from current diabetologist will do.

Thank Ceiling Cat for Caturday! It's been an awful week and I'm glad it's over. The sun is also shining and it's warm enough to go for a walk, for once.

My sympathy to The Ice Queen. Cancer sucks and takes everything and everyone with it. Hopefully, your uncle is at least comfortable.

I'm glad to hear that Dragon is holding his own, at least for now. Target really doesn't know him, but she is a fan of his work (and Sherpa's; her sense of humor is a bit twisted) and sends hugs and purrs.

Speaking of Target, she's about a year old now and has gone from a little tiny kitten who fit in the pocket of my hoodie to being a sweet, confident cat who takes no shiat from anyone. A more recent picture:

And another that shows her face:

laulaja: Thank you for the condolences; I didn't even cry this hard when my father passed.... Something about holding him while putting to sleep :*( 

tigerose: VOCSL5:


Thanks much!  That was something from TFD too - so I will be doing a thorough cleanse after work tonight.


So, fark, tomorrow is the anniversary of my dad's death.  I decided I'm going to spend the day visiting shelters in my area (St. Paul) and see if any kittys strike a chord with me.

One for me...

Last Caturday I lost a very good human friend to breast cancer.  She'd been battling for years, and we'd thought, until as recently as christmas, that she'd finally beaten it.  But metastasis is an unpredictable monster.  She continued her music with her beautiful voice and talent until the end, and passed last away in the morning, right after her 50th birthday, surrounded by her children, sisters, and closest friends.

We'll be attending a celebration of her life tomorrow (looking forward to it, but not... know what I mean?), so I might be up to little but reading posts.  I didn't want to let another Caturday go by without popping in today to say "HI!" and I'm glad you all are here.  XXOO

sno man: We finally go the call from the shelter, and on Tuesday in a snow storm on the way home from work, I picked up our new temporary housemates...
They are still in quarantine in the guest room for a couple more days, but they have the run of the room with some new toys, safe nest spaces and hiding places, a litter box of their own, food & water topped up often, and a ton more room than at than at the shelter.  We also have the nanny cam to keep an unobtrusive eye on the lot between visits.

this is the momma...
[img.fark.net image 333x500]
she's young and slight, and skittish, but not as skinny or skittish as Pandora was...
(I love the tail wrapped around the nursing kitten...)

I guess we'll start with that one...
[img.fark.net image 500x333]

and there are two more...
[img.fark.net image 500x333]

and...
[img.fark.net image 500x333]
The kittens are almost 4 weeks and happy health playful tumbly fluffy smiles.  Should help the rest of winter to go by quickly.


MY, what purrty blue eyes they haz.

My remaining girl, Razz (short for Rasputin; named by ex due to her right ear being folded and messed up) looks rather similar to your girl.  Razz is a stray, so I can't pin down her breed/type.  What would you call Sophie?

And I can't think of a better place to be an annoying twat waffle, after all we all have those days.

John Buck 41: yobbery: YAY CATURDAY!

Just logged out from a sucky 90 minute marathon at work. I need to vent....

I was adding a new vlan and subnet to our core routers and distrubution switches. We have redundant equipment and run VRRP (which is identical to HSRP in Cisco terms). I was adding the config it to a secure segment which is to be firewalled (also redundant).
So I dump my scripts into all four devices and everything looks great, but I can't get the secondary router to respond. After burning my eyes out going over the same stuff ad nauseum I get the local engineer on the phone. After 30 minutes he can't find anything wrong either. Everything shows that it's up. I then discover that I can't get to many of the secondary interfaces that reside on the secure segment.

Turns out that someone was playing with the new firewall in front of the secondary router and must have loaded a rule set. We're not ready to configure them yet and they're supposed to be running in full passive mode.....

I apologize for not understanding a thing you wrote. Serves me right for not learning Greek  :)


And I apologize for barely understanding a thing you wrote, despite spending 2 semesters attending an actual course in Cisco devices  :-{(

I am sittin' here thinkin' "I really need to put on a skirt or some pants and go to the store, but first, let me draw inspiration from teh intarwebzz for mah baking stuffs". I have been looking at just random food pr0n when I decided "no, you really do need to put on some pants and go to the store" yet I strangely still did not quit looking at my monitor. I decided to look at my bookmarks instead and there, like an accusation, was The Procatinator! That's right. As if it weren't hard enough to get away, now I've got music and cat pics and videos.

FFS, I am not going to get ANYTHING done today, am I?

Oh my dear. I am so sorry for your plural losses. I do not know why it sometimes happens this way, Ibsuppose they simply wished to cross the Bridge together. I thank you for trusting Caturday with your grief. I promise that we all ache for you right now.

I am so sorry for you loss, been there, done that and it's really hard.



I won't argue with you there it's been difficult. Even more so with my Dad. He's been taking it hard. He's had a rough year last year hopefully things will turn up for him. 

I am so stealing "annoying twat waffle" - I know some people who so deserve that term.


Consider it my thank you gift to all you awesome people. "The annoying twat waffle."

Sorry to hear about your Grandma. It's good that you were all with her, though.


Yeah in the end we were all there for her and that was what was important. We were there for last rites and I held the candle so I guess in Catholicism that's important IDK.

I almost didn't get to be there I was in there. My dad left suddenly that morning and I was thinking she had a few days. So I settled in for the day working. Then my dad asked me to come and I said give me a few minutes to get ready. I started to just shake and cry and was just unable to drive I called my dad to come pick me up cause I forgot how to get there. So he drove here to get me I was a mess the whole time.

That was the hardest thing about my grandma dying last year. She was the ONLY one of my family that ever told me she loved me, let alone acted like it. That's no lie or exaggeration, either. I never felt as alone as I did when she died. My Caturday family definitely helped. I still miss my grandma more than anything and it's been 10 months. I'll probably never NOT miss her. I'm so sorry you're going through it, too. (((HUGS))) not as good as a real hug, but best we can do...
