Real Women Drink Akvavit: lilyspad: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Bathia_Mapes: And now for your viewing enjoyment...How to bathe a Bub

YAY!!! Earl heard the crying Bub and started GLARING much harder than usual in my general direction. Gogh Beastie is indifferent to the cries of other cats getting baths (and is still only a tiny bit interested/unafraid of Earl). Too cute video!

How did his vet visit go???? All clear????? *please say yes*

Oh, yes! Well, there is ONE tiny thing there. Lord Earl of Grey is actually LADY Earl of Grey. The view I had of her back end made it look like she was a neutered male when really it is just how her fur on her back end happens to puff in an odd manner in the right spot. I swear Hisss! is going to turn out to be a hermaphrodite just to spite me.

I have a girl cat named Earl. That's cool though. I'll just tell people her name is Pearl "but we call her 'Earl' for short". :-D


So, the P is silent? ;-)

Welcome to Caturday (the sherpa moves west edition) everbuddy!

I have arrived at the House of Biscuit after my expected 6 hour drive turned into about 9 (about par for the course).
I am currently sitting on yobbery's back deck, enjoying the evening and catching up on Caturday.

Thanks to all for the good wishes, and I'll do my best to keep you all updated on my progress as I continue my journey.

Pictures will have to wait, since in the approximately 3 hours I've been here, I have only seen a glimpse of Biscuit butt and had Wolf approach to within 5' of me. I just might be getting a complex  :o)

Correction: I was just about to go inside to get ready to go to bed and Wolf and Mia are sitting right by the sliding doors watching me. Or maybe they are watching the bugs that my laptop is attracting  :o)

I'm just gonna leave this pic here since today (the 11th) would have been the white boy's 18th birfday.

Sherpa, you are not going to believe what I found at the Army/Navy Surplus store yesterday!
Did you know that they have Dehydrated/Freeze Dried Hushpuppies????
Just add a little water and they self-inflate!
Then after you eat them, they inflate some more.

They're better than that freeze dried astronaut ice cream they used to sell in the 70's.
Not a lot, but a little better.
Speaking of good eatin'...

Well, I have to hit the hay.
I've run out of steam, and I got a call from the cardiologist yesterday asking me to come in Friday afternoon.
No further explanation, just come in Friday.

Sherpa, don't let Biscuit talk you into any poker games or other games of chance!

Well, I *did* get to sleep in until 1:30 am until there was some cat drama that needed tending to. Gogh Beastie has figured out that Earl will not attack him even if he is growling, but that it will get my attention. Gogh Beastie seems to be warming up to this arrangement a bit. Not only is the door to the Super Secret Lair of Infinite Doom* always open now, but the monstrous minion that lurks above my head wakes me so I can better hear Gogh Beastie sing the song of his people and respond accordingly. Which is usually a groan, "stop it!", some reassurance that I still love him best of all cats and some gooshy fuds for all. YAY!

I just went out to give Hisss! some gooshy fuds as well - I want to start getting her a bit more chill around me so I have a better shot at handling her when I need to do so - but because it's still dark out I have to stand guard while she eats. All the local kittehs know what my sliding glass door sounds like and they come running right over because FUDS. So I'm out there on the patio with mah coffee and mah cigarette and talking nice to Hisss! so other animals stay away, when I hear something hit the top of my back fence and the shrubbery rustling. Right at that moment, as I'm turning my head to see if it's a very large raccoon, a bigfoot, a serial killer or what, the motion activated security light goes out. Hisss! and I are now helpfully backlit by the kitchen/dining room light for your predatory pleasure and can't see diddly out in that area of the yard - it's too dark. You can guess about how well we liked *that*.

25.media.tumblr.com

Hisss! is so brave, isn't she? Well, it turned out to be a very large skunk (of course) that despite all the noise I was making trying to make friends with Hisss! did not seem to know I was there. It triggered the light again, spotted us, and then Hisss! REALLY lost her shiat, because it's incredibly close to the food dish. And us. Skunk looks up and notices it's not trapped, but it does have two strangers flanking it and - well, it almost got real ugly.

Yeah, that's an incredibly accurate depiction of the emotional current of the moment. I'm lucky I didn't get sprayed. Again.

Nah. I can't think of a single Caturdayian who wouldn't be trying to do right by those cats. The lurkers as well, most likely. They wouldn't be staring at us if they were soulless monsters. The politics tab is a much better train wreck with accompanying pile of corpses to dance over for that type. Our lurkers have both taste and class. They probably don't smell bad, either. :-D

I've been working with editing photos and wanted to see what I could with this one.

[predle576.smugmug.com image 400x317]


Thank you! I just cropped and resized and didn't even try and clean it up. I think the pics would come out much better if I'd clean the glass in that door, but it takes literally less than a day for it to get gunked up again. Lil Bro cleaned it when he was over, I cleaned it the very next day - and it's so bad again already taking a good pic through that glass is most likely impossible.

I swear it feels like every animal in a five mile radius either pounds on that door asking for food or tries to break into the house through that door to get to Gogh Beastie's food. His feeding station is *right there* where they can see it, but that really is the best place in the house for it for a variety of reasons. There's no mystery at all why animals come right up to my door.

Unless they get skunk sprayed, like someone nearly did...

I'd say TGIF, but I work 2 more night shifts, so instead, TGI-almost-C.

So we've had Sherpa rejoin the party (yay!), Earl become Pearl (but still Earl, also yay!), and someone didn't get skunked (triple yay!).  Seems like a good week thus far.

B's been busy climbing, which I think means her home is dryer than the hydrometer says.  Have to keep trying to add humidity for her, which is difficult when she lays out as long and as flat as she gets, just to make adding water a challenge.  But she's eating again, so it may just be another seasonal thing.

Now, being the typical "Eeeek! Spider!!!" *runs away dragging fainting couch behind her for later use* type, I am very unedjumakated about caring for spiders. Is there a reason it is harder to add water when she's like that? Are you not supposed to get the actual spider wet or what? Or is it you just don't want her attacking you?

I suppose that should have been "Dude, so do you mist water in there and let her lick or whatever it off any structures in the environment or does she have a little water dish type thingie?" I seriously don't know how that works because I would have died of horror by now. Good on you for caring for Miss B, btw.

Both, but she doesn't lick it off or drink water normally.  She gets all her water from food.  But because she's not very tall (maybe 3.5 inches when she raises up as tall as possible) she tends to run away when water touches her (she's covered in fine hairs for sensing, like kitteh whiskers).  So she tends to head to high ground even if only a small droplet lands on her.  Otoh, if she sees water pouring into her home (usually when I add it to her dish), she has a tendency to start to attack it, since she sees a reflection, which means "another spider in my house, get it!"  Then she inevitably touches the water, realizes that it is water, and skitters away worried about the impending flood (I guess, her thoughts aren't so obvious).  She's pretty laid back, the epitome of "oh you're here and you're leaving me alone to my devices?  Good"

She's my bug, and she's my rescued critter.  Can't have kittehs in current apartment, will make sure they are allowed in the next one.
