So I'm still in bit of a foul mood. So my one aunt who is fighting cancer has been in a nursing home while she recovers from surgery and gets her strength built back up so she can go home. She came with a Rx for pain meds AS NEEDED! So I get a call that she's fallen. Ok that's not good. Come to find out, the staff at the nursing home were giving her 2 pills (and they're the strong C2 stuff) every 4 hours because hey, if they're stoned out of their mind, they're not in pain and not bothering anyone. Of course, never bothered to keep an eye on her or implement fall protocols. It was her family MD who found her on the floor, not the staff, and when MD said to call EMS, the nurse told her to wait because she was finishing something up.

So we get her to hospital and she's scanned head to toe. No brain bleeds (thank God) but they feel there was a period of time where she wasn't getting much O2 and suffered some brain damage, mostly memory. Her pelvis is broken in 2 places, she has fractures involving 2 lumbar vertebrae, and her hip is broken in 2 places around her replacement (she had her hips replaced about 10-12 years ago). Oh, she's also in her mid-80s and has 1 functioning kidney so guess who can't get surgery to fix everything because she would die on the table.

Yeah, I seriously want some heads on a platter. You'll  come bail me out right?????

Sorry to hear about the poor care your aunt is receiving. We were very lucky when my Mom was in a nursing home. The people there were great and took wonderful care of my Mom, of course someone in the family was in to visit at least 4 times a week at different times of the day so we got to know most of the staff.

I definitely think that a review board is in order for the staff in the case of your aunt. Is it possible to transfer her to a different facility?

I think with a quick explanation your bail should probably be set at "ROR".

Doctor Fegg: I bought a catnip plant recently. Is there anything special I should know about giving it to the resident cats? Just pull off a couple leaves and let them at it?


You've got to bruise the leaves. Either tear them up or smush them between your fingers. I've grown catnip for years, I've only had one cat (Cisco, my big gray cat) who doesn't like fresh nip. I had a cat door at my old house (before I met Mrs Snuffybud) so all my cats could go out, I found they could tell time because they (and the neighbor's cat) met me at the front door when I came home from work every day so I could give them all a leaf!

You can't kill catnip either. I made a mistake one day and left the pot on the ground when I was painting the post the plant hangar was on. Winslow, the neighbor's cat, ate it down to nubs! It all grew back within a few weeks.

Just back from high tea at Hotel Viking in Newport (dat's right, I iz a society gal! pretty dress and big hat and all that jazz -snarf).  My pals I and managed to finagle extra champagne from the staff!  Most bestest since it was free (sponsored by our breast cancer survivors support group... we're the trouble makers)...

Such a wonderful afternoon... got home to the mail and the discovery that the retailer of my lymphedema compression sleeve is playing games with insurance and charging me WAY MORE than my insurance told me I'd pay.  LIVID.  And can't do a damned thing about it till Monday when I call insurance and say "hey, remember I told you I thought I was gonna get dicked around?  Yeah, I am... please handle posthaste".

GAH.
Bring on de wine and de kitties!

It depends if they will be able to release her to a facility like that. She may end up in a LTC specialty hospital (there is one in the same facility that's she's in right now). If she can go back to a nursing home/rehab facility, they are looking at one she was at before where she got good care. Its a bit further away from family but if they're going to treat her well, the mileage will be worth it.

Her son is POA, I told mom to have him get a copy of her records ASAP! I know Medicare has to be notified because they are the ones paying her bills so I'm sure there will be some 'splainin to do to them. I know they haven't gone to a lawyer just yet, we're basically just getting documents together. The MD who found her documented everything and its in her office chart. I guess they want to see what the final result is going to be but I'm going to say that there are going to be quite a few bills that neither Medicare or the family will be paying for...

As for me, I'm pretty good at bottling things up. The bad thing is I just stew but then I almost seem to think clearer at the same time.....

I can attest that catnip can indeed be killed.  Had a plant that I planted outdoors in my garden.  It was all nice and happy and growing, and Buster loved a fresh treat... Well "big mean kitty", the outdoor neighbor cat found it, and nested in it, and before long had smothered it completely.  Ded ded ded.  Farking neighbor cat.

I planted it in the ground under an upturned hanging basket so the kitties could nibble down as far as the wire but the plant itself would survive.

reigning.cats.and.dogs: Need help / advice / commiseration...

Mollie, the most recent addition to my clowder, is a beautiful little girl with a very bad habit...  she pulls her lovely, soft fur out by the mouthful, leaving very not beautiful, weeping wounds....  I have her covered in a 'jacket' of sorts (sweatshirt sleeve with holes cut for legs - it ain't worthy of the runway, but it works - at least until she licks thru it.  (Yes - her obsession / compulsion is so strong she manages to lick thru a sweatshirt!)


[scontent-a-iad.xx.fbcdn.net image 850x637]

(Apologies for the over-sized pics but, my eyesight sux, and I am rather disinclined to figure out how to make 'em smaller...)

She is absolutely lovable, and even gives (real, arms around the neck type) hugs!   I ***know*** her issue is anxiety.  I just don't have the funds to diagnostically confirm this and then pay for treatment.  I may have a vet that will accept my diagnosis of OCD / anxiety.  Any suggestions for alternative treatments are greatly appreciated!  She, along with the rest of my clowder, (though, to their credit, they allow her to eat first) eat homemade gooshy food, supplemented with dry, urinary health formula (Theo has chronic UTI and eye issues, poor bastard baby-cat).  I put 'jackets' on her (made of sleeves of sweatshirts), which I spray with a pheromone-calming spray .  I try to supplement with Laxatone for the inevitable hairballs (she hates it, Fozzie loves it, and all the kitties let him groom them) and Rescue Remedy (again, she hates, Fozz loves).  Any suggestions (low cost...) to help the poor girl are heartily welcomed!


Reduce stress.  Try to think like Mollie.  Did anything in the house change shortly before she started over grooming?  We found out that one of Mom's cats is freaked out by balloons, of all things.   He'll hide for days until the scary thing(s) go away.  If there is a trigger, removing it might be all it takes to stop the behavior.  If not...

If there is something she dislikes the taste of, but is harmless even in large doses, you might try combing/brushing it through areas she is most likely to over groom.  It might or might not break the cycle of over grooming.

Holy crap! This hits way to close to home. We had to have a family member with my dad 24/7 for 2 months at a Convalescent Care Center. We were very close to saying fark it and taking him home. In hindsight, we should have, it would have been easier on all of us.

I will swear up and down that all of them slipped on the bars of soap that they carelessly left in the halls.

Spiralmonkey: Many years ago I had a cat with an anxiety problem and the vet told me to try valerian. You can either grow it, cats love it like catnip, or get tablets / drops from a homeopath. I got the tablets from a homeopathic pharmacy and they worked a treat. Poor boy went from nervous wreck to zen master. If it works for your cat it's a cheap fix.


Second this. Valerian root did help a lot for a "psychotic/abused kitty" one of my neighbors in Saskatoon rescued from our alley. Over four months George went from running and hiding whenever I stopped by to hissing and swiping at me to occasionally rubbing up against my legs, which was pretty damn amazing.

Who would let their cat get that close to a snake that could kill it? WTF?


First thought I had......

Hahaha. Thanks SG! How is Buddy doing?

/Butter Bunny Foo Foo says Happy Easter.


Happee Easter Butter Bunny!  :)  Give that tummy a rub for me.

Buddy's not feeling all that great today, but he's hanging in there, thanks for asking.  He's fast asleep beside me wrapped up in the fuzzy blue Doctor Who blanket.  I went out for a few hours this afternoon and now he won't leave my side.  He's such a dear little snuggle bug these days.  Feeling sick is tiring!  But easier when Mommy & Daddy are there to give pats and cuddles.  And when there's lots of Caturday to pass the time.

I sure wish there were some doggie equivalent of crackers & ginger ale to settle his tummy a bit.  Maybe we'll try some fresh cool water and a milk-bone or some steamed veggies later.

He says to say hi and thanks and he will send along kisses as soon as he's feeling better.  I send hugs too -- sounds like you've been through a rather rough time lately.

Here is a recently found pic (going through a long-lost box of photos right now myself!) of little boy Buddy on The Couch of Utter Hideousness -- probably some time in 2002 at about a year old.

SeikaArashi: spinach gunk: Northern Flicker

So that is what those birds are called! The whole front and backyard was full of them yesterday and they were entertaining to watch to say the least (especially when two of them went for a chirping match and they were bouncing up and down like crazy lol).


Flickers are neat birds!  They're a type of woodpecker but they spend a lot of time on the ground digging for bugs and looking for nest-making materials.  They seem to be everywhere right now, I think it's mating/nesting time.

When I get home from work I'll have to put up pics of my lovely babies. I think this will be the first caturday I can finally participate in yay!

Yay!  Can't wait to see.

The one staring at me is Mallow. :D He's been my baby since we got him when I was 10. He's unfortunately not looking so well... no matter what we feed him, he always acts like he's starving (even though he has food constantly) and he is so skinny and has had a couple of strokes. The last one messed up his back legs somewhat, he has a bit of trouble walking... but not enough to keep him off the counter and trying to sleep in front of the microwave. :P We won't be surprised if he passes away during the night when we're sleeping... but we're definitely trying to spoil him (or at least me, dad doesn't think we should LOL).
The one in the back is Mew, she's so tiny but she's roughly 13 years old. She's also the resident bossy one. She hates dogs (though dogs will ignore her haha) and she used to be able to stand Mallow, but she's either getting senile or something because she'll tolerate Mallow being near her, then the next second she'll swap his nose and run off. She's so adorable though and loves to sleep with me during the night (used to let Mallow in my room, but unfortunately he tends to pee all over the place... @_@)

And this is Morris! We got him about three-four years ago from my brother's ex girlfriend's grandma. He was super shy when we first got him and we had to keep him in the garage while he got used to us (he did went missing for three days when he escaped the garage... someone had left the door open a crack... scared us, but he came back THANK GOD) but now he's the super spoiled baby. He won't let you pick him up (was apparently never held that much as a kitten) but he will love on you forever and ever. Even when you're trying to sleep.

Here are my babies~ Hopefully I can keep popping in every Saturday. :D

yobbery: Real Women Drink Akvavit: So, just like every other death I've been through, let's not be sad (though I am) and dwell on loss, let's celebrate the good things we do have and just post pictures of cats.

I'm so sorry :o(

/I've been busy and unable to properly keep up with you guys. Thus I end end up skimming quickly and missing a lot of news.


Thank you. We tried. We really, really tried. It's hard to accept that there's nothing I could do, and I may never fully accept it, but now I am trying to come up with a plan for the preggers kitty outside. I really don't want to go through that with another cat, whether I'm bonded with it or not. It's too upsetting to me.
