yobbery: Good Morning!

Turns out Biscuit is a badass hero.
[www.smugmug.com image 600x450]

Wolf and Nathan have tiffs every once in a while that never really amount to much. This morning I woke up to the worst yet. It was a full blown cat fight which started in the bedroom, made it's way down the hall through the kitchen and into the basement. I missed the entire thing except for the countless tufts of fur they in their wake. My wife saw most of it and said that she really could not tell which was the aggressor since they took turns at the chase and having the upper hand. She was trying to break it up but they just kept at it (They were so worked up they even growled at her.)

Enter the Golden Child...
By the time they hit the basement Wolf was chasing Nathan. Nathan ran into the laundry room and Biscuit blocked Wolf at the door seemingly to protect Nathan. He was crouched, hissing and ready to strike. Wolf is almost twice Biscuit's size and much more powerful but he quietly backed away....game over! I would have loved to have seen that portion of the fracas however the rest has me quite concerned. There is peace for now and nobody seems hurt. Both perps are up and about yet they still seem very wary.

I guess you can say Biscuit is full of piss 'n vinegar. I never knew he had it in him! As for the other two I need to get to the root of the problem. I think it somehow stems from a bowl of water I keep next to the bed for them. Quite often I'll see one or the other protectively hovering over it and it seems like that's the spot where many disagreements originate. So today we'll start by moving the bowl to another more open area. This has got to stop.

..and another cat for the wall of text.

What Ms. Kitty does on a rainy day.

I was sitting on the deck finishing off a knife project when I heard rustling behind me.  THIS WAS RIGHT BEHIND MY CHAIR.  Once I got past the near heart attack,  I realized it wasn't venomous and grabbed the camera.

Just got a call from the hospital. Overall Nathan is OK. His jaw is stable and there are no fractures or broken teeth. There is a spot where tartar was broken off and the gum underneath is very tender. Another possibility is he overextended or sprained his his jaw trying while trying to fit Wolf's entire head in his mouth. In any case he's in pain and will be on kitty morphine for a few days

We had him there two years ago for a dental checkup, but at that time they said the tartar wasn't bad enough for a cleaning. The emergency doc gave us a referral to their dental unit for a checkup and/or cleaning.

I already have the temporary door to the man cave in place and Nathan, Biscuit (Nathan's champion and favorite snuggle buddy) and I will spend a quiet night locked up. I also removed the 'watering hole' next to the bed where all the disputes seem to start. Need to find another spot for it in neutral territory.

I am so proud of Biscuit! The way my wife describes it there was no doubt whatsoever that he was protecting Nathan. He wedged himself between the two and squared off with Wolf. When they play Biscuit always get the crap beat out of him by Wolf, but that didn't stop him from protecting his buddy.

yobbery so glad the news is good. I wonder if you could have multiple water bowls, placed around the house? That might help too.

When my Siamese was alive we had a bowl in the bathroom, and one in the kitchen...the kind a dog could not move around. Because our other cat Punkin liked to play water bowl hockey!

Spent the last hour doing a " full run" for my gig next week. I have 14 songs. I think that will do. :) All I need to do now is make my panniers and I will be all set! ( I am going to make a set of soft hip rolls that tie on, in lieu of the wire and fabric kind)...

Before I forget, ((Hugs)) to those who have lost furry companions. They will await you over the bridge.

Type once more at ft of pg8, having finally got home from funeral svc of dearly-missed-since-retirement chorusmate of Plumbicon's who was actually 88.6 yrs old at time of going to Bridge to collect lovely golden retrievers Sassy & Samantha (depictured in extensive foto collection!) this past Tue, & taking over as baritone section leader in male half of Heavenly Choir.  Tale related based on performance in 2 church choirs, "All the rest of you; tenors, sopranos, altos & leads, you're doing fine.  Gene, please pipe down, your bass is drowning out all the other parts!"

We have a bird feeder on the deck rail, and the birds are messy and drop seed, which attracts field mice and chipmunks and the occasional rat.  I guess the snake just thought of it as an all you can eat buffet.  And the deck is almost 6 feet above ground, so I didn't think about a snake being able to get up there.  Then again, it is a rat snake, they are pretty good climbers.

Dude, your killing me! Love the captions!

yobbery:
*sigh* Nathan is at the emergency hospital now. After the spat with Wolf he kept licking his chops as if he had hair stuck in this mouth. The licking turned into extreme tenderness and drooling.

Our vet recommended we take him straight to the emergency room. The doc at the hospital thinks he may have a puncture wound in his mouth or a tooth issue. The doc doesn't think his Jaw is broken but needs to sedate him for a better look. Since we are literally within walking distance of the hospital (PVSEC) he told us to just hang out at home and they'll call us after they get a chance to take a peek. They're pretty busy now and it may take a bit of time. Other than his jaw/tooth/whatever he's perfectly healthy and I'm sure other cases are going to take precedence.

He weighs 16lbs! Freaked me out because he is not the least bit fat, but him and Wolf are both big muscular cats.

I'll update when I hear something.


please do!!

KK..caught up on everything 'til midnight-past.. (easy to remember stop spot..)   Will go back and finish after posting..

..as is usual, loooong post that will cover yesterday and t'day, up 'til present..

As I think I mentioned, Son and his fiancee, her toddler and son's roomate all came down fer a short-notice visit and we went out and spent most o'the day in Corning, NY..  First at a restaurant I used to work at (owner and family were outt'a town, demmitt..I wanted him t'meet my son..) and had a great lunch..as seen below..  =)

img.fark.net

Should be fairly obvious who's who in the  pic..

After that, we went to the Corning Museum of Glass..Fiancee and toddler got in free (she is 19..  All teens and under get in free) and I got in half-price..  It appears they expanded their Zip Code list from only three codes, and mine is now included as "Local Resident - Half-Price"..  Kewlies..  =)

We spent a couple+ hours there..the son's roommate won a raffle at the glass-blowing demonstration and got a beautiful, large bowl-on-pedestal piece (think candy bowl with a center stand)..his ticket ended 561..mine ended 560..soooooo close..  =P

Took a couple hunnerd pics..will only bore you with one..  This be me with my had resting on the 200-inch glass blank that was the form for the giant reflector in the Mount Palomar telescope..and the *only* thing I remember from my first ever trip to the Museum when I was 7..  Is what jumpstarted my lifelong interest in Astronomy..was *awesome* to be able to actually touch it..  =D  40 years ago, it was set behind a rail and 15 feet distant..  (sorry fer fuzziness..  Son's RM took it..)

img.fark.net

We headed home after..  HM had started a fire in the firepit to get rid of some scrap-wood on the property and, as it was a coolish day, we all sat around and chatted a bit..  They had planned to stay 'til 9-ish..but son wasn't feeling well (sadly, he got my teeth and is in as bad shape as I was..and earlier in his life, to boot..) and the baby was getting fussy..so they headed back out around..I wanna say 5, mebbe..?

I came back up t'my room..after a bit longer at the fire with HM..and caught up here..then, apparently, went t'sleep not too long after 10pm..  Is a bit fuzzy as, by this point, I'd been awake 52+ hours..  =P  I'd managed t'get everything ready fer t'day..and set my alarms..set one fer pm instead o'am..luckily, the one was enuff..woke up a little after 10am..'bout twelve hours sleep..

Got dressed..got coffee..got everything t'gether..   It seemed Orange had spent all nite with me and, at this point, was still asleep on the bed..  I prepped the cat-carrier and got him up and in afore he knew anything was goin' on..  =D

Got to the Vet's dead-on app't time..  Orange's first ever Vet visit..and only second car ride in his life..first being back when we moved with him as a kitten..

We were the only ones there..filled out the new-patient paperwork and were fairly quickly in a room..  Nice place, but small..NTTAWRT..only two examination rooms..great and friendly staff..  I was not displeased..  =)

Assistant came in and did the basics..then Vet came in and did the full exam..

Here's the rundown:

- no fever
- no swelling
- no breaks or fractures
- no visible wounds or outer injury
- no external parasites

The Vet had several ideas in mind, coming in, that could cause the hindquarters problems Orange has been having..but he has symptoms of *none* of them..

She took him from the table to floor to see him walk..and he wasn't really that co-operative..  Walked crouched, cautiously, slowly..  If he was limping at this point, the nature of his walking totally did not show it..

The Vet presented me with a laundry-list of things she wanted to do..some needed regardless of the reason I came in..had the Assistant run an estimate and bring it to me..   Too much for me to pay today.. Assistant   asked me what I was willing/able to afford right then and I said $100..  She took the estimate back to the Vet and let her piece together the most important parts to fit that budget..

Here's what we ended up with..

- Cost of visit..a given..
- First ever Rabies Vaccination
- Broad-spectrum de-wormer
- Sub-cutaneous saline/fluid treatment (apparently he seemed somewhat dehydrated, tho' I do see him drink..)

Assistant and Intern came in and handled all that..  (..they had with them a really nifty Hannibal Lechter-style Kitty Face Mask..in case he got bitey, obviously..but was not needed..)

Vet still wants to do:

- Bloodwork fer Feline Leukemia
- Same fer FIV (Kitty Aids)
- two other things I no remember

The work done t'day came to $108..over my $100 idea, but I said "Do it."

Remaining tests will be another $81..  I'm honestly surprised..this all seems *really* inexpensive to me..sooo wish I'd had more money so's I could have gotten it all done..  Prolly too much was spent, overall t'day, as it is..  Gunna be another financially crappy week..but needed be done..

Thru it all, Orange was a real trooper..  =D   He's not at all good with being picked up, even with me, and an absolute monster when anyone else tries it..  But, he suffered everything with near-gentlemanly behaviour..just one flying-fur attempt at the start..then just quietly put up with everything..temp taking, Rabies shot, worming pill, fluid injection (he *did* mewl a bit..but didn't fight)..allowed the Vet and Assistant and Intern to move and handle him..  I was both surprised and proud..

I left there with two directives..the first I should'a thought of, m'self..  One, get him on video when he's walking badly so they can see it..   Two, watch the fluid bubble under his skin..may move to joints..faster it goes away, the more it was needed..iff'n it takes time, he wasn't so dehydrated..  Well, when I remembered to check, it was gone.  From anywhere.  That was ~3 hours after he got it..and they told me it might take a day or two..  Pretty obvious it was needed..

Made several stops on the way back home..HM's son was with me and one of us was always in the car with Orange, wherever I stopped..  Don't need some random patron in the lot smashing in my car window, thinking they're saving a pet..when I'm only in each d@mn store fer a literal 5 min, picking up the 1 or two Items I specifically stopped fer..

Got home, let Orange out of the carrier in my room..and he has pretty much sleeping on my bed ever since..pops his head up every once in a while to make sure I'm here//he's home..but mostly sleeping and none the worse fer wear..

Caught up on *most* o'my stuff..and now back off to catch up on this thread..

Cheers fer the  sherpa sighting..and, now, to see what fun awaits me..!!   =D
