lilyspad: Mrs CDK: lilyspad: Mrs CDK: Hai guize, Happy Caturday! Has anyone heard from sherpa today?


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



That's what we heard too. Should be here sometime tonight but haven't received confirmation yet. He was supposed to call us when he left Yobbery's . Since he got there so late last night, maybe he decided to stay one more day.

As far as the lifting and doing too much goes...I got a lecture from my sister too. She had surgery after the surgery because she did too much too. CDK is doing his best to keep me in line ;-)

laulaja: Get to type at ft of pg6, after Too Much Running Around Running Errands.
There was an out-take from tale brought as support for thread, but now I've started typing, unable to Go There & Seek without wiping out what I started here.  Expect to be able to Seek again before having to sign for evening.  Plumbicon's gotta be at HLI by 8AM for too early set-up for rental, so he'shiat the hay already after our Evening TMRARE cited above.

I mentioned last week about making and selling a Caturday t-shirt if anyone is interested. I spoke to Sherpa who suggested using the Caturday tag as a design. Here is the design - let me know if you are interested and/or want one.  If you don't like the design, feel free to suggest what you would like.  Thanks!

I like it!  Just for s**t's and giggles, how would it look if you added just some whiskers to it?  Just a thought...

ooooo, I like the whisker idea.    I'd like  a t-shirt too


How about a snarky caption on the back?

What's worse than a tarantula that's loose in your neighborhood? A pregnant tarantula that's loose in your neighborhood  now #11 on today's main pg w 69 comments.  Copied this outta tale subby brought, failed to get headline:-- reminds overly of Death by Meteor & Miss B -
A hairy Mexican red rump tarantula named Penelope is on the loose in Park Slope, and her owner is frantically trying to find her before she pops out her tiny, creepy spawn.
"I know she looks crazy scary but she's mostly harmless," the owner says on a missing-pet sign, which includes a photo, posted in South Slope.
"She's pregnant, so I'm hoping to find her before she has her babies. She's mostly active at night and she tends to hide in dark corners," it notes.
"She shouldn't bite but sometimes she jumps," it adds. snip>8

Now at TempThreadsEnd, ft of  Lucky pg7.  Lucky for one, cuz  professional_vampire brought new Caturday T design!  Far better  than Cafe Press's feeble attempt methinx mefetched last wk.  Copied $20 all in, also whiskers suggestion which I votie In Enthusiastic Favour Of.  Medium for me pls, XL for Plumbicon.  Reckon PayPal'll do for payment, simpler than any other way -- or one may privately request p_v's USMule adrs.
One more before I do rest of late rounds & feed all but Ginger, who's been checked, medded & fed. I need not go with Pl to clean up & prep for tomorrow's rental; there was a family gather costume do this eve that his primary minion Regan worked.  R was to take fotos to share.

a funny one as I was waiting in the (much cooler) lobby in the shelter for the laundry to cycle.
There was a mother with her (12?) year old daughter looking for a dog. The girl was stating her requirements, and she did not want a male because even when their (she did say this) "balls were cut off" they were still not as docile as females. I winked at the mother and protected my nether region with my hands. The girl kept on going about the evils of male dogs. when she turned around and saw me "protecting an area" her eyes went wide, I stood up and asked the receptionist to open the secure door and went "ouch, ouch, ouch". The receptionist and mother went into hysterics, and I heard the comment from the mother right before I went in "you have the right attitude for marriage". (I am sure it was for my benefit) It was her turn to see me laughing. I was told later they did adopt a female dog.

Fotos of both kittehs & goggies watching for sherpa18 on pg8! So perfect & purrfect!!
Time for me to sign for today; Jimmy behaved himself & agreed to come up from finnished (sic) basement where Ginger eats & overnights due to his diabetes. Mostly to keep him out of others' chow.
Was several-pg article on feline diabetes in Aug issue of CatWatch  which came today. Copied issue for chorusmate who's owned by 7-8 & our veterinarian, who was in chorus for a while. But then she bought the practise & hasn't really time to sing any more. Our vet's owned by 5, she moved to condo right next door to clinic bldg 1.5 yrs ago.                          ....
See ya in daylit daylight once more, wish sherpa18 safe drive to the CDKs. Room to type Hyvaa  Ilta!

No longer recall who fetched this, is in my imgur gallery where ID info saves not. Kinda think our voyaging sherpa18 may be most logical suspect.

I didn't see your egg gravy recipe post until after thread close last Caturday. I wanted to be sure to thank you for it.

Apropos of nothing in particular (other than I'm pretty sure you have a Maine Coonish cat, too) here's my cat Winslow:

Well, I fed all the kittehs and hoomins and cleaned the kitchen so now I'm exhausted. I've been giving Hisss! and her babbies gooshy fuds. The babbies still don't come anywhere near me, but because I take a whole (5 oz) can for the five of 'em and spread it across a big, white plate so they can all get to it, Hisss! gets super excited when she sees the plate. The babbies run under the propane grill and she runs TOWARD me. She doesn't even call her babbies, she just starts chowing it down. They come back after I go back in the house and eat their gooshy fuds, too and are sooooo cute in a little circle around the plate! I've got to clean the glass in that door extra well tomorrow and try and get a pic!

Been lurking for a few weeks. Glad to see Sherpa is finally on his way. Vudutek, great to see you, hope you feel better and that the rest of chemo goes quickly.

Need kitty advice. Josephine was laying in the litter box a few weeks ago so we took her to the Vet. She didn't have an intestinal blockage, just lots of hair in her stomach & "matter" in her colon. Vet gave us a laxative to give her twice a day. She's done real well, poop-wise. I've been brushing her -- she's a short hair, but it's so fine and soft, easy to see how it gets all tangled up inside. Went back this morning for a follow-up X-Ray. Not as much hair as before, but still a little backed up. Vet talked to me about the need to get this under control because it can lead to Megacolon. He recommended adding Prozyme to their dry food. I feed them a Blue Buffalo Food, which they really like and he was ok with that food. Neither cat likes wet food, and they drink a lot of water. Anyone have any experience with Prozyme? They weren't too thrilled with a powder being sprinkled on their food, but they'll adapt.

A pic of the patient, in her favorite spot:

Hai everbuddy!

Apologies to all for not calling/checking in earlier - I could not get to sleep last night trying to wind down from the drive, and then woke up later than planned with a sore back, arms, shoulders and neck from wrestling my vehicle for over nine hours. (For those of you who don't know all the details, I am driving a 17' truck - fully packed, I ended up taking furniture items I intended to discard - and dragging an auto transport trailer with my car on it behind).

This truck is a beast and I was hesitant to get back on the road in a sub-par condition - plus I had hoped to meet up with QJ at some point, but what with his doctor's appointment I would have ended up trying to drive straight through and that was not going to happen.

yobbery suggested I stay another day and feel better and try to relax before moving on, and after much BS'ing back and forth, I realized it was probably the right thing to do. I feel much better now, and will be able to move on tomorrow morning confident that I can handle the next part of my trip.

Thanks to all for caring about me, I and will try harder to keep up!

PS - I just wanna give a huge shout out to yobbery and his lovely wife AllMyKidsHaveFur - they are wonderful, welcoming and generous hosts, and have taken good care of your resident wandering sherpa, making me welcome in their home  :o)

However, whether or not they actually have any cats was in question for awhile. Stay tuned.....

Moving is soooo much fun....  btdt, but a very short distance....  and wrestling a truck will work on you for sure...... and a good move resting up first...  my critters disappear when someone knocks on the door..... they will come out after a while... glad all is going well.

I definitely see a difference this evening. My wife even noticed. Cats too I think since they have finally made their presence known.

As of this evening...
Wolf: "I like this guy. I think I'll poke him in the face at 3:00am"
Mia: "I'll come within ten feet as long as you keep tossing treats at me"
Biscuit: "I'm scared Daddy"
Nathan: "Kill it with fire. Until then I'll be behind the washer"

We went out for a great Chinese dinner and then took in the Pittsburgh skyline.

*followup to my previous post*

Meanwhile, I really was looking forward to being able to pet a cat again during my visit - however, up until a little while ago, I was feeling seriously unloved and was developing a complex. The one and only Biscuit wants nothing to do with me (although I did get a few blurry pics of him from a distance).

i415.photobucket.com


Mia keeps her distance, but I got a couple of pics of her as well. Wolf is the only one I have managed to actually touch, and it felt so good even after he basically flipped me off (ask yobbery if you don't believe me, the damn cat really did flip me off in no uncertain terms).

And as far as I'm concerned, Nate is a figment of their imagination, I'm convinced he does not exist  :o)


It's way too late for me to try and upload the pics I did get, I gotta go get some sleep and try and be ready to hit the road bright and early. I hope to be back soon with further updates (and pics).
