ProcrastinationStation: Snuffybud: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.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.

Diocletian's Last Cabbage: IMHO, sounds like, somehow, someone is trying to send a message to you. I think the message is: life goes on. Don't be afraid to keep living it in happiness.exvaxman: sherpa18 I know it doesn't help much, but I used to have a rescue Turkish Abby. She shed like crazy and her fine hair got into even sealed electronic displays. I used to cry when coming across the hairs, now 15+ years later I still find some but they now bring a smile to me remembering an awesome cat.
sno man: oh yea, I knew I was missing a shout out.... GO BUDDY!!

OlderGuy, I'm in C'ville - let me know when we leave and I will be there! I will be so sorry to have to call my boss to tell him I have come down with 72 hour Ebola, but hey, these things happen!!!

The Ice Queen: my one aunt
Diocletian's Last Cabbage: [img.fark.net image 480x640]
The Ice Queen: 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?????
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([www.smugmug.com image 500x323]/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.
John Buck 41: Diocletian's Last Cabbage: [img.fark.net image 640x532]Who would let their cat get that close to a snake that could kill it? WTF?
Diocletian's Last Cabbage: [img.fark.net image 640x480]
Well, r/l calls. Oil change has been put off too long; I'm too lazy to leave for work a half hour earlier Mon thru Fri to have it done, and I won a $50 GC to Walmart from work for helping out on inventory weekend a couple weeks ago. I'm off to the (not so) big city but will be back later this afternoon. Have fun, kids.
Porous Horace: My neighbor has an un-fixed cat that has been in heat for the last week, so lots of cat-crying at all hours.Not the first time and everytime this happens, he's not here - the cat has been left alone for about a week now and those of us in the building are stuck with the situation.It's not the least bit amusing and also I think is cruelty to animals.What can I do? Call the SPCA? Call the cops?
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!

sno man: RWDA, many have said it so much better than I'm about to but you're a good human, Moo knew that enough to find you. And I'm not going to finish that thought, 'cause there is a lot of cat hair flying around here, getting in my eyes, cat hair of cats off to be adopted, that I'm missing, a lot more than I should be.
John Buck 41: I love Caturday and you people. With all the snark, negativity and hatefulness elsewhere on Fark this is like a beautiful island in the midst of a raging sea.[farm3.staticflickr.com image 500x354]
johnson442: Latest about Spouse's broken arm: It turns out to be a "comminuted fracture", (i.e. broken into several pieces), mid-shaft Humerus. Her arm is being held together with a fibreglass splint, several elastic bandages, and a large "swathe strap" holding her arm close in to her body. No cast, as such. She does comment about feeling it 'click' if she moves her arm too much, but otherwise is in good shape. All things considered.(/brag on)I knew she would need help getting around for the short term, until her arm was pinned or whatever. SHE insisted that she would be fine while I was at work. Uh-huh. Right. Needed help dressing, un-dressing, and various things one would scarcely not hardly ask a friend to help with, can't drive, etc. Heck, I was even helping the X-ray tech holding and positioning her arm for the pics!I was right. I knew what I was talking about. This ain't my first Rodeo!(/brag off)Well, good news about Spouse's broken arm: Went to the Orthopedic Surgeon today (Friday? 6 DAYS after it broke???), to find out if it needed to be pinned/plated/screwed or what. He decided that it was holding together well enough with the replacement splint(actually affects the broken area) that surgery would not be necessary. Which is good news finance-wise, but she won't be able to move it around for weeks like she would had it been pinned solid.At any rate, she seems to be in good enough shape after the first week that she can manage on her own at home without assistance, so I called in to work and put myself back on the roster for the next assignment that comes in (Temp. construction).So, all in all, things are going well!
