Hiro-ACiD: CAT-LIKE TYPING DETECTED: TV-top unlikely, methinks..  Speaker-top offers three things the TV doesn't..  A corner/cubby-hole (TV makes a safe wall), magnets (at least two 'super' magnets in that unit..mebbe three..looks like might have a mini-tweeter..  Cats..and many other critters..can sense that..), and vibration (if the speakers are on/active while they're up there..)  The TV just can't compete..  ;)

Fer the counter-hopping..?  Squirt bottle and resolve/vigilance..seriously..  My cat (rest o'the houshold hates him) is a counter-jumper..but, with squirt-bottle training..he runs from the kitchen or *immediately* is down from the counter the moment any human enters the room..  Only issue is overnite, when is unlikely a human would be around..  Solution..?  DON'T LEAVE OPEN FOOD ON THE COUNTER OVERNIGHT...!

By Bast, If I could *just* get the other two in the house to *understand* that..98% of the problems would go away..

But, I rant..  :P   Seriously..  Squirt bottle..

Hi CLTD.

The speakers are amplified monitors, so plenty of magnets and a bit of heat out the back-panel too. Makes sense as a kitty-spot for sure, what with the "tower above my hoomans in supremacy" positioning. Julian also parks his butt on the clockradio in the morning, so their butts must be attuned to sound. ;)

Abby is weird. She enjoys water. She just shows up wet from time to time, and she'll walk under a running tap and just let it splash on her with no regard, which gets to the heart of why she's jumping up on the kitchen counter now - she's in love with sinks. Something about watching the motion of the water go around the sink and down the drain fascinates her. I don't think a squirt gun will work with her, as flicking water at her from a running faucet does nothing to deter her. We just finished a 10 minute supremacy battle as I tried to clean the kitchen (which means turning the tap on and off) and she repeatedly jumped up to investigate the sink...  in the end I had her doing cutesy ...


Time fer the "big guns" then..and, believe me, if 'squirt-bottle' didn't work, this was my next step..

Two words:  Air Horn

One of the kind you can buy at the supermarket..  Small, cheap-ish..  Prolly comes in a two or three-pack..

Cat on counter..?  *BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW..!*

..repeat as necessary..repeat until canister is empty..  By then, the mere *sight* of the air-horn will be deterrent enuff..

Yah, I know..am same guy who advocated time and training fer hand/finger signals..but..  Fer some things..?  Immediate response required..will dovetail with the silent command training later (yes, yes it will..)..

Other option..?  keep counter/sink *pristine*..wiped down with bleach..no food, no running water..no *anything* to attract any attention at all..  Sterile..

(..or ditch the cat..but, you and I both know that is ***NOT*** an option on the table..ever..)

Regarding cats on counters. At night, I used to put down mouse traps, and then gently cover with newspaper. Didn't hurt the kitteh, but scared the crap out of her!! Didn't need to do it after a few nights.....

Just sent Boy back to school, with Dad playing taxi driver. I coulda taken him back earlier, but I wanted him to have one more home cooked meal. He says food is ok at school, but hard to make a quick breakfast or lunch, unless you eat stuff that is bad for you.

Eli already misss him. The two of them like to snuggle on teh couch.

Diocletian's Last Cabbage: Taking a little time out to add to the previous wishes for the Universe to leave Alien alone.  Don't make me get Neil DeGrasse-Tyson and have him and the Cosmos WHUP your ass, Universe!

On a similar note, any Canadian regulars or lurkers out there?  What do you know about possible government assistance for someone in Alien's perdicament?  Can she get into an assisted living facility given the memory problems she suffers due to her many brain surgeries?  Are there options for a pro caregiver to visit her periodically to check on her?  I'm not sure what her actual situation is (ie: is she not entitled, is she too proud to ask for state aid, etc), but it would be nice if someone or someones could research this and offer options here on Caturday.  I remember when I could've used some public assistance between jobs and never got it because I was too proud to ask.


/Living on ramen noodles and hotdogs for more than two months does funny things to your coronary system!


This I think we can make a plan about.  I have not the slightest clue what the federal government here does for this type of care, but can certain start to check.  I think Alien is one province over from me so their rules are probably different, but there should be information available.

/but I don't think there's a box for "Kicking cancer's ass for so long and now needs to tell the universe to back off"

Despite what CLTD typed some pgs back, I don't/at least hope  I don't "ride herd on" You Lot.  You Lot don't need it.  Only sometimes know when pix were posted, or one of times, due to dating saves.
Sadly have not found Minx in anything I currently hold.  May take ransacking Farkives for her(?), & not so sure there's Seek function there.  Have 2 newsltrs to complete before May 1, plus transcribe more of new YLHarmonics  as able (it sat for week before starting).
BTW, did find www.online-image-editor.com, place sherpa18 recommends & I've used to bring .gifs down to working size for here.  Have now bookmarked  cotton pickin' place so hope to find again more easily.
Not using right away, but Soon ...

First she would be required to exhaust her EI sickness benefits (15 weeks) and any private insurance benefits she may be entitled to.  Then she can apply for CPP disability (federal), which can take 3-6 months to process, and may involve being denied and having to appeal (they routinely deny 75% of applicants; probably hoping you will just give up), which can take another 3-6 months, but with good chance of success.  At the same time she can apply for BCPWD (provincial), same sort of waiting times & BS.  Any CPPD benefits she may qualify for will then be deducted from her monthly BCPWD benefits, ensuring that she will only ever be able to receive monthly, a maximum of about $900 (plus medical/pharm costs and small amounts for other assorted necessities).

However, if she wants to work and considers herself able to work, both agencies will tell her to take a leap.  It can be pretty discouraging.  The only other option is the big W, which will get her about $600/month.  In a city where the cheapest shiathole one-room apartment in skid row costs over $500, it doesn't go far, but is still better than a kick in the ass.  There are numerous advocacy agencies that can help people apply for these programs, and can probably point her toward assisted living too.  I sent her some info about these before, but don't know whether she was able to look into them.  Would be happy to dig it up again and re-send if she would like.

But yeah srsly universe, give that lady some peace!

What a caturday alien might look like

actually some of them were quite funny...I had a priest once say that blaming Eve was the first recorded instance of passing the buck..lol! Actually one of the most Christ like people, I think was Mother Teresa. At least in modern times. And I think that Pope Francis seems to be the very embodiment of what a Leader should be..I wonder if he has cats...

sherpa18: ArmednHammered: Finally made it in, been out of town for a few days.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes, much appreciated! And I think this will fit the thread theme pretty well!
From the Long John Silvers hush puppy thread, still room for a few more!
Note to self: When going out of town for several days, do not ever leave an empty re-fried bean can in the kitchen garbage.

Dammit, there were a lot of versions of that .... I know I don't have the final one where I requested to have the white boy next to me (which did happen) ..... but here are the ones I do have...

I believe I was the keeper of the Long John silvers hall of fame. I have a bitmap of the latest one stored on my drive somewhere (I wanted to keep a lossless images so that it won't look like shiat after a few edits.) I'll track it down for next week.

Hey Sherpa, Give me a call. I'm taking the day off tomorrow so you can call anytime during the day if you wish.

I'm going to get back to farting around in the garage. BBL.

Mudd's woman: CAT-LIKE TYPING DETECTED: Mudd's woman: CAT-LIKE TYPING DETECTED: Mudd's woman: grew up on William Street -- right down the block and around the corner from Clint Small/library! I am trying to picture where your place would be...Some things get fuzzy too quickly in the brain.

Okay..  William is roughly parallel to Main..loooong street, no idea where you were on it..

Leave yer house and walk South (towards the 290)..when it ends at Roosevelt, turn right..walk until it ends at Main (you'll pass my former Dentist (old Railway Station) on yer left and the Stadium on yer right)..turn right..walk past the Library..immediately after, on right, is a 2-story white house with a large building set back behind it and an "Erequois Birch Beer" sign on a pole in front..  There y'go..  :)

..and, damn..  Internet has let me down..  :/  No good results for GIS "birch+beer+cat"..  So will leave you with this..
