Good Meowning! Happy gotcha day to lily. I powered thru the thread this morning after I got up.

laulaja scritches applied to Eli the bitey. He sends purrs back atcha.

Eli has done a nice job soaking up tears this week. On Tuesday I was informed that I had been laid off due to a reduction in positions. Now, why did they hire me last year and have a person " float" between schools? They put that person in my position..So now I did not get to say goodbye to staff. My kids are going to come back and be sad. And I have no idea what will happen to the Summer reading program. So, I have not felt too social...

Hi Caturdayers.

I have a question -- perhaps some of you know about this. A coworker of mine has a kitteh (she's about 14 years old -- kitteh not coworker) who has been dealing with hyperthyroidism for a long time. I guess medication has helped for a while, but recently things have taken a turn for the worse.

She was told about "Radio Cat." Evidently their success rate is pretty high? So she is taking kitteh to one of their offices next week to get the treatment.

Anyone have any experience with this? I am just curious.

oh and a cat

*whew!* I am caught up AND I made the bestest breakfast EVAR! and I fed the kittehs and made moar coffee.

Happy Homecoming Week, Lily! You got SO LUCKY to get the hoomin BFF you got! She listened when you said "I wanna go home wit you". :-D

Hai, Buddy da Wunderhund! Little cutie pie trooper - no wonder you are so tired and yawning. It's hard work being awesome.

Oh, there was a bunch of other people/stuffs, but now I forgot. Pooey. I am distracted with my sammich. It is toasted 12 grain bread with cream cheese, cucumber, tomato, radish sprouts - and then I added a few slices of crispy bacon and lots of fresh cracked pepper. OM NOM NOM NOM.

Oh, we had a fire in the kitchen last night - just a little one - but it took me a whole can of flour to put out and scared my mom. I don't know who it was that made an invisible mess inside one of the burners, but it was a reminder that no matter how awful I feel, it really would be best if someone in this house did not cook. I WILL DO IT, STEP AWAY FROM THE STOVE YOU SLOB. I strongly suspect my clueless son or my drunken slob of a sister. Whoever did it, I have a hell of a mess to clean up today, because after all my doctor stuff yesterday I simply lacked the energy to put out the fire, finish dinner anyway and then clean up the damn mess. I'm going to have to disassemble the entire top of the stove for that. *sigh*


Enough of my biatchin', have some critters instead!

Nah, it was one of those little flare ups under the burner, except when I said "sonuva...." and sprinkled a bit of flour on it to smother it, it flared up - which I have NEVER had happen before! - and started licking the bottom of the stove vent top thingie. At which point I quietly muttered something like "f*ck" and dumped the whole can of flour on it and pushed it around to smother the flames. The fire alarm went off and that brought my mom running, and she over reacts to EVERYTHING. Seriously. I had to get stitches in the back of my head about three years ago because of one of her classic over reactions to me dropping a plastic cup. (A full minute later, while I am still bent over cleaning up the mess, she came up behind me and then screamed "WHAT HAPPENED?!?" like a smoking crater full of mangled corpses suddenly appeared in the hallway and she was shocked and horrified and trying to figure out if she should run or not. I was startled and jumped and hit the back of my head on the open door of the cupboard that I had grabbed the dust rag I was using to clean from, resulting in much blood flow and blurred vision. Total over reaction, and I am still not convinced she felt bad or she'd still not do that sort of random screaming in unwarranted panic thing)

NO WONDER I didn't feel like cleaning up the flour mess, especially with mom right behind me running her mouth non-stop trying to figure out WHO DID WHAT and if her stove was ruined. I dunno mom, but you can shut up, make yourself useful or go away. Pick one. I don't want you behind me right now - or any other time - so I'm all for "go away".

My family is so weird, I swear.

Bah! Just noticed I am out of kitteh kibble. Now I gotta go to the store and get some, THEN clean up the flour mess. I'm buying cookies while I'm there. I can't believe I don't have any cookies!

*** Warning, long story about cats, a toddler and a bird ***

Wednesday after getting home from an evening swim lesson for the little one, followed by heating and eating dinner, I heard a loud and repeated chirping.  I followed the sound while the little one followed me and found at least two, if not three, of the cats in the garage, along with a temporarily hidden source of the loud chirping.

Grabbed one of the cats, gently tossed him into the bathroom, closed the door and grabbed a towel on the way back to the garage.  With the little one watching from the doorway, after a fumble or two, I managed to pull the second cat away with one hand and toss the towel over the bird with the other hand. 
So now I have a frightened bird that I am pretty sure is a juvenile (very short tail) and possibly a robin that I have barely seen wrapped in a towel against my chest.  Not knowing how badly or if it is hurt at all, I go to my computer and find out that the WildCare facility will be closed in 15 minutes.  Problem?  Yes, it is over 15 minutes to get there.  I find their number, ask if they will still be open if I get toddler and bird in the car, they say sure.

I was SO PROUD of my little girl!  I briefly explained we had to help the bird and she need to get shoes on (she was already dress from swim lessons) and get in the car "quick, quick, quick".  She immediately got her shoes on while I was stuffing the bird, towel and all, into the cat carrier and getting the door shut.  It is not uncommon for her to get stubborn about getting shoes on, not this time.  She also got in her car seat quick enough I didn't need to encourage her, another frequent point of potential wasted time.
Once she was in and buckled up, the carrier with the bird went in the back seat between her and the door.  We talked about the bird, about birds in general, about how birds talk (that one chirped), about how we don't want wild animals to know humans are helping them so they can go back to living as wild animals and so on on the trip.

We got to WildCare, I got the bird out, set him on top of the trunk long enough to get the little one out of the car.  I unbuckle the car seat, she gets out.  Again, she was helping by going relatively fast.  I told her where we were going (it's out in the middle of nowhere and 15 minutes after the official drop off closing time so no cars) and we're off with the bird.  Once inside, she carefully waited, for some reason there were tons of boxes scattered everywhere and she didn't knock any over.  One of the volunteers examined the bird while the little one and I watched.  It was a juvenile robin, it was hurt but not badly.  After a few antibiotics and a bit of growing he should be ready for release.

I am really proud that my little girl was ready to drop everything and cooperate so well with me to help a poor bird that was in the wrong place at the wrong time.  As for my part, it was just doing what needed to be done to help a critter that needed help that I was able to give.

Have you tried cooking with Truvia Baking Blend?  It tastes just like you used regular sugar, but only 1/4th the calories of regular sugar.  To substitute, just use half as much in the recipe instead of the regular sugar.

Timid Goddess: *** Warning, long story about cats, a toddler and a bird ***

*snip*


You and your mini rescuer of small critters are AWESOME! I am proud of your wee one as well. My son is pushing 30 and he can still come up with a dozen ways to drag his feet about stuff he doesn't feel like doing (though putting on his shoes is no longer as high on the list as it was when he was a little guy). What is it with little kids and shoes, anyway?

Good job, Tiny Timid Goddess! (You too, mom!)

Timid Goddess: Have you tried cooking with Truvia Baking Blend?  It tastes just like you used regular sugar, but only 1/4th the calories of regular sugar.  To substitute, just use half as much in the recipe instead of the regular sugar.


I have not. I am one of those real cream, real butter, whole eggs kinda gals. When I was edumakated about Egg Beaters I was shocked at how tasty they were. Growing up in the '70s - the last time white sugar was so viciously maligned it wasn't even allowed in our house and I had to sneak candy from friends' houses - made me incredibly resistant to artificial anything. No one will never convince me that nutritional yeast tastes like cheese and that carob is exotic and expensive chocolate enjoyed by European royalty, either. That's what the makers of all these things are up against with me - spending a good decade being lied to by her own mother, because everything that is tasty is "bad" for you and will kill you DEAD faster than the Zodiac killer. I no longer believe any of the "better for you and tastes just as good", because like fat chicks everywhere, I remember when people mess with my enjoyment of my food. (Even if I wasn't fat when it happened)

I will admit I have pondered using Truvia, but I am a bit concerned about the impact on texture, especially in baked goods. Sugar isn't just used for flavoring, but also has a lot impact on the overall texture of the finished product. If it weren't so darn expensive, I might try a few things with it, but with my finances the way they are right now, I can't afford to experiment as much as I'd like to (and I'm too tired all the time anyway, so *shrug*).

BTW, Oreos were on sale, as were the Wheat Thins. I got a package of each, because I like Wheat Thins (which are actually quite fattening) and I'd never had the berry Oreos before. I deem the berry Oreos "tasty".

Now I gotta go clean up the mess from putting out the fire last night. I'm amazed at how well I managed to contain the flour mess. It could have been much, much worse - especially if I didn't get the fire out so quickly!
