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!

"The Children of Hisss!"

Hmm...I sense a 3-volume saga there...along with possible screenplay adaptation, creative rights, and cute little furry 'action figures'....action being scritches and cuddles...

If you're looking for cat pics, do NOT do a Google image search for "big, hairy pussy".

Real Women Drink Akvavit: CAT-LIKE TYPING DETECTED: HAPPY CATURDAY, EVERYFUZZY..!!!

Firstly, let me say, we finally have our  sherpa back..

*massive snip*

It's always nice to have a Sherpa, ain't it? ☺


Yes,  Yes it is..  =)

<selective snip>

As for Orange... holy fark, I'd have lost my mind if I were in your shoes. Probably would have robbed a gas station or ten, dropped cat and money off at the vet then turned myself in to the cops "sorry, blew it all on drugs. Yup" because DAMN.

Oh, my mind was lost from the moment of the sudden downturn..  Until then, I was trusting my care and his hardiness to make short work of any issue..  I'm really not sure what going on, here..

However, I put Orange up on the bed a bit, near the window..gave him a catnip leaf which he rolled in and then ate..and then he just, unexpectedly, suddenly jumped the two feet from my bed to my lap..perfect landing..  Bugger's still there, as I type..  *grin*

As long as he's stable, I'd just keep him in the house no matter how much of a PITA he is about it until you *can* get him to the vet - or for a week or two as a precaution. DEFINITELY talk to the cat lady mail carrier and see if she has any ideas or knows of a kind hearted vet that will take payments from you in case he goes downhill again and needs to be seen right away. There's just so much that can be going on there and cats are very, very good at disguising pain and injuries. It's a survival thing. Then again, he may be just fine, but me being me, I'd have him at the vet as soon as I could anyway.

Gunna do my best at all'a that..hopefully only good and productive will come from it..  =D

OK, I'm totally the wrong person to ask about this kind of thing. Not only was my schooling well over 20 years ago so I have forgotten damn near everything, but I am hypersensitive to critter injury. How I managed to stay calm when I actually had to treat injured animals, I do not know.

I have an educational background in Marine Biology..technically qualify fer the term "Scientist"..  Have had 3 decades experience with Canines, Felines, Reptiles and Amphibians,  Avian and Piscine..including homing, treatment (shots fer baby tortoises..what fun..!  Not.), et all..  And this situation..?  I have nothing in my history that could explain this..

I know Orange has short hairs, but still give him a really good once over and check for puncture wounds. Rub his furs backwards and go over him inch by inch, even if you take a couple of puncture wounds yourself. He could have been bitten (like Gogh Beastie was) and you just can't see it through his fur. A nasty bite in the right area can make him act like his back is broken. Because I couldn't see Gogh Beastie's bite wound - it was just a very neat pair of punctures - I would have sworn his leg was broken. Critter bites are painful and the swelling around it can take a while to go down. Also, you know when you hurt yourself how it always feels even WORSE the next ...

Done what I could with that..no swelling at all..no apparent pain..  L'il concern about that, atm..  Orange no seems to be afeard..  He's curled up on my lap like there's not a thing in all creation to worry over..

Updates will follow..  He be healthy (as seems he can be), stable, and has put both my damn legs t'sleep while lying on them ..  And purring..  Gott'a figger out this 'legs' bit..cuz I no know which way things are heading..

John Buck 41: tigerose: Last few days of summer vacay here...caught a baybee Pike today. My Dad got him in the net, then we dscovered that the net had been pulled thru the poor critters nostril..we wound up cutting the net to get him free..I think the treble hook caught him high in the mouth/ nose, then got the net..makes your nose hurt doesn't it? We through him back. Too small. :(

Pike are a problem here in Maine. A bunch of assholes introduced them in many lakes. They aren't native and eat trout and salmon babies. There is NO limit and anglers are urged to kill every pike they catch.


LL Bean has a MARVELOUS fish-n-game cookbook.
There were some recipes for pike in there in the Freshwater Fish section.
I've made their Ciopino (fish and shellfish stew) and it is really quite good.

Oh...Amazon says they'll support a charity of your choice...and Little Mews Rescue is on their list of eligible charities!


D'Artagnan went walkabout for 3 days last week. Thought I might have to put a LOST/STUCK ad in the paper, but he came sauntering in at 2A Tuesday morning. He was in no distress- wanted his chicken, thank you, but he wasn't STARVING. Ate his dinner, then returned to his catly concerns.
"How nice to see you, D'Artagnan. Thanks for checking in...come back when you can stay longer!"

According to Neighbor Across The Street, he's got quite a large range that he patrols...she's heard from friends of hers who are in his territory- i.e., they see him frequently.
Think I'm going to get a collar and name tag for him. Oh, he'll ditch it...but if he's seen with a collar (even temporarily) then he won't be considered a stray, feral, or lost.
He looks too good to be feral or stray...not just healthy, but his coat is soft and glossy (due probably to the olive oil he gets on his chicken). It proclaims "This cat has a home and is well cared-for".
He also has an outgoing, friendly, and sociable personality when he wants.
I just want to make it clear he has a HOME as well.

I wonder how many 'arrangements' he has with various people...as in "I'll come by and visit with you for a bit, and you feed me".
He's very lean, so he looks like he hasn't eaten in a week...but he's a bit over 12 lbs of solid muscle.

That was me at the drive through bank teller yesterday! She commented on how well I was staying cool. I glanced in the rearview mirror and saw my hair was waving in the wind of my ac as I drove away and figured out how she knew! Lordy, still having blond moments at my age. White hair isn't as noticeable on a blond. ;D
Yes, I did have all of the vents aimed at me! I don't like 95 degrees.


Made my Credit Union happy earlier this week...went through the drive-through after shopping at Costco.
Teller admired the flat of nectarines sitting in passenger seat...so what does Captain Impulsive Behavior do but start passing fruit through the drawer (after ascertaining how many people were on duty right then).
Win/win situation...tellers all happy, and those nectarines were REALLY ripe.
I couldn't have eaten the whole flat by meself before they started going off.

*~*~*~*~*

SHERPA!
(does happy dance)

Glad to see you in good hands (and paws) at long last! Hope the rest of your trip is easier....getting STARTED is often the hardest part.

Hahaha! Even my dinner has been raising hell today! I freaked out some guy at the grocery store when I was buying the roast to make my dinner (which I cut into steaks - I was saving money), freaked out Hisss! when I went out to her corner where she actually lives to grab some fresh rosemary for my dinner and touched one of her babbies and I just now freaked out Pearl the Grey when I was doing the final sear and set off the dinner bell/smoke alarm. I've heard my whole life how "everyone has a special gift". Well, mine seems to be freaking out other living creatures with little or no effort. I am strangely proud of that. MUAHAHAHA!

Also, my dinner was pretty darn good, so there's that, too.

Happy Caturday Everyone!

The teenager and I just got back from doing an extra volunteer shift at the shelter since they were getting backed up on laundry. In two days there must have been a run on cat adoptions, because there were only three cats the we remembered from two days ago. This is great, many were older. There are two large litters of kittens now - one room had 5 kittens, the other room six. Plus a number of other cats of varying ages. It was "good" to see a fresh crop (not good that they were there, but good that the older residents were gone. I am very glad that Arnie found himself a new home. His family abandoned him at 8 years of age because they were moving. One really horrible thing to do to a loving family cat. If we didn't have two already I would have gotten him myself.

Oh, a funny one I heard last night, I am a fan of BBC quiz and comedy shows. On a "News Quiz" story Andy Hamilton (one of my favorite comedians) was reading a newspaper clip. Apparently in anticipation of a new kitten being adopted, a "cat door" was installed so it could go outside when it wanted. The door opened up by a magnet attached to a collar.  The idea was immediatly given up when the kitten became attached to the fridge and could not break free.

I'm feeling really good. So good, in fact, that it's hard to keep from doing things I shouldn't, like lifting over 10 lbs, cleaning, etc. I have 3 more weeks of taking it easy. Thanks for asking!

I like the design and the idea to add whiskers.
Can you do kiddo sizes too?
Also how do you want us to order them and get funds to you?
Can we also sponsors folks we think need a shirt (because you guys keep me sane) but might not be able to justify the luxury?

Ugh my phone has no cat pictures. I will have to fix that once I find the wee beastie. He has gone to ground cause we are having a heat wave.

The last time I talked to Sherpa, he said after he left Yobbery's, he was planning on driving straight through to your place....with maybe a truck stop rest in between.  That's all that I know......and be careful with lifting stuff, okay?  I ended up in the hospital a few years ago after having "female" surgery and doing too much afterwards.  Had a severe bleeding incident.  Sorry....tmi.  Just sayin'........ :D
