CrankyAndi: So I was strolling thru at work...on my phone. I got to Yobbery's comments about Biscuit and about lost it.I do believe the old saying 'who pissed in your cheerios' has now been changedWHO PISSED ON YOUR BISCUIT!!!!
yobbery: HAPPY CATURDAY!Biscuit is a nimrod.[img.fark.net image 490x367]Biscuit and Mia looooove to play in the tub. Most times when I go in the bathroom one or both will come flying along hoping we'll put the faucet on a slow drip. This morning was no different.I woke up to the alarm as usual and dragged my groggy ass into the bathroom to have a piss. Biscuit came flying in as usual, passed behind me as I stood at the toilet, and sprung into the bathtub. When he jumped into the bathtub he also sent a scrub brush crashing into the tub. The noise and sight of this horrid inanimate object freaked him out and he went flying back out of the bathroom....only this time he passed in FRONT of me.Yes, I pissed on my cat. I got him nose to tail.I'm not proud. As I was trying to chase him down with a wet towel my Wife was asking me what was wrong....with no time to explain before he decided to jump on the couch or something all I could say quickly was "I pissed on Biscuit!". Once she heard the whole story a good time was had by all.He's either really insulted or thinks I've given him the ultimate token of respect. I can't tell which.(dramatization)[img.fark.net image 490x366]

CAT-LIKE TYPING DETECTED:
Ms MacGyver: Hi, All. I just received a call from Dr. Bozer (sp?) at UGA. She said that Rufus was resting comfortably today, but she was a little worried last night. Seems that he wasn't able to sit up at all. They would sit him up, but he would immediately flop back down. Standing was out of the question (and has been for several days). She decided to go ahead and give him a round of steroids that was more powerful than what out vet had done, and she started him on treatment for Canine Myasthenia (here's a link to a good page that explains fully: http://www.petmd.com/dog/conditions/neurological/c_dg_myasthenia_grav i s) The thought was that the benefits would greatly outweigh any side effects.When she came in this morning, she said that she did see improvement. Not only would Rufus sit up when they placed him, but he also stood up for a moment!!! I know that's not much, but for him to sit up and stand for a moment after being on meds for only 12 hours seems like a great leap to me! Dr. Bozer said that it was a very baby step, but it did appear that it was an improvement. She also said to expect him to be in the hospital for many more days.Canine Myasthenia is a result of something. If this is what he has, then we have to find out how he got it and see if we can treat the root cause. She had already sent off blood work from this yesterday - the results should be back in a day or two.Please continue your prayers for him. I know that he is in the best possible place to get the best possible care now.She's holding off on the spinal tap until she gets the blood work back since he's stable now.I'm trying not to get too excited. But my heart really wants to be excited.

I'm taking Uncle Cabbage's example and am sitting in the local library (not sure when I will have internet at my new abode). I just skimmed the thread quickly, so - condolences on the losses, paws crossed for all ailing animals and peoples.....yobbery: Biscuit is a nimrod. Yes, I pissed on my cat.

Please email me the info (for future reference, I can't afford to buy right now)I still have to post the pics I took last week at yobbery's house, and give you all an update, but I have to go back to job hunting right now. HOWEVER, I hope to be over at MR & MRS CDK's house tomorrow where I can use their internet and catch up with you all. If not, I'll come back to the library - I've missed you guys.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to deal with a calico kitten who has a huge cattitude? I had always heard how unpredictable calico's and torties are, but having one of each that are very predictable cuddle bugs I had a hard time believing it. My vet is always amazed at how Lucy and Morticia are so friendly and easy to work with. The only strange and unpredictable one around here is Juno, but that's a whole different story.I'm taking care of my neighbor's 7 month old calico kitten and this kitten is nuts. The first couple of times I went over there (when the owners were still home), the cat would plant herself on my lap, purr and want all sorts of attention. The last couple of times she has jumped in my lap and asked for attention, the first time she hissed at me so I stopped petting her and she jumped down. The next time she jumped on my lap and asked for attention, but I wanted to see how things went so I just left her alone, she turned around hissed, bit my arm and scratched me. I played with her for quite a while before to tire her out but that didn't help. I've used soft eyes with her and she does it right back, but then she'll hiss or bite or scratch, or all three. I'm not afraid of Cali, but it's going to be a long week for both of us if this keeps up. Also she tries to get out when I open the door and I really don't want to lose this kitten. Next time I go over I'm going to take a feather on a stick toy and see if I can totally wear her out. I'm going to open the door just wide enough to put the toy in to distract her which should keep her from trying to get out. Then I'll try to get her to play until she collapses, maybe then she'll sit on my lap and want some lovin' and not attack me. If anyone else has any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them.What a sweet, friendly and totally predictable Tortie and Calico might look like.
Spiralmonkey: OK, which one of you was shopping today?
spman: My cat Fluffy Kitty made her way to the rainbow bridge this week, after battling vaccine associated sarcoma for a few months. She was 13, and was the such a sweet cat, I will miss her. We did the best we could for her, we had her original tumor surgically removed, and the vet referred us to an veterinary oncologist, but for a 13 year old cat my mother and I decided that putting her through that would be insane. She was doing quite well until the end, but she eventually was too weak to do much besides eat and use the litter box, and after taking her back to the vet on Wednesday, it was decided that it was her time to go. Goodbye Fluffy Kitty, I will see you again some day :-(
