HedlessChickn: eurotrader: HedlessChickn: I think they're throwing trump under the bus in order to force him to resign. Pence gets installed before the election and pardons everyone. Cut their losses and call it good.

they already assume 2020 is over.

The Nixon example doesn't apply here with a party recovering within 5 years. Throwing Donnie under a bus doesn't solve republican's problems. Republicans are the national party of SA in the American reboot.

All those federal judges.

that's all mitch wanted

those are lifetime appointments

they may not have gotten the SCOTUS, but they got the federal judges for a generation.


Just until they stop breathing. Or removed for sheer incompetence and corruption.

Start with Kavanaugh, whose six figure debts suddenly disappeared.

I've figured out Trump's end game!  It came to me in the night:

He needs an honorable way out.  So ideally for him would be surviving some close call health event or assassination attempt, but being too ill to continue.  Nobody would fault him for having to withdraw after something like that.  And it would give him sympathy which might shield him from those nasty demoncrat prosecutors.

Now, surviving assassinations is a risky thing to go through and difficult to pull off, so that leaves him with a health scare.  Maybe a fake heart attack or brain tumor.  Cancer?  Everybody hates cancer!  Something that can't be verified from the outside.

If only he knew some unscrupulous doctors to help with his scheme.

Good morning Maddite's.

I slept well last night. Feel much better. But I'm not satisfied with the vet's assessment of Larry and Taylor. He looks like shiat. He hasn't touched his food and has only dabbled in the water dish. He lays on the bed groaning and drooling with his eyes barely open. He's not going to die if he misses a few meals, but he will die if he doesn't get some replacement of body fluids. And the doctor didn't give him any saline. She didn't even ask permission to test him. She appears to be only going on the fact that he's ambulatory and has okay gums.

And I'm having trouble without my PC because my phone is old, Fark mobile loses posts if I tab out and won't let me upload a pic by any method, even a link to cloud storage. I'm feeling frustrated again.

I would grant that I may be over sensitive to changes in these cats behavior due to environmental changes. But this is recent. They were doing okay, running around and playing for weeks after we got here. They ate and drank mostly as usual all the time.

I need ya'll's advice. This community has proven it's love of the fur babies as well as it's support of my venture here not just with empty rhetoric but with greenbacks. I trust you.

My plan is to email the clinic with these concerns and ask that they hydrate both cats. That's actually what the vet tech said they would do when I handed them off at the front door.

I'm feeling like Kira here, that I'm being gaslighted by medical professionals.

hi. Here, 40 yrs as vet tech and now hospital manager.


from your photo of Larry, the white cat correct? He looks ok, just stressed. Cats go mentally inward with change and stress, it can take months for them to come back out. For eating: I would use canned pate style food that you can add a bit of water to. Stir until it's a thick slurry. This is the easiest way to rehydrate a cat. You can also use chicken baby food. The tiny jars that say just chicken, possibly with gravy. Add a bit of water to that. Most cats love it.

once you have labwork on other kitty you will know more. Some cats can be very picky about their food. My ancient Burmese will only eat two types of the $$$$$ pate in pouches. You may have to get a small variety to see what they prefer.

For his eye watering: most likely feline herpes. It flares with stress like with people. You can give lysine treats which help the immune system fight back. Otherwise rinse daily with a damp washcloth.

if he's still not eating you can "force feed" him. The baby food is great for that. Put some on your finger, open his mouth and wipe food on the roof of his mouth. Wait a few moments, repeat. This will often get stressed cats to eat.

you can also ask the vets office if they have a/d food. It is for recovery patients, but has a great consistency for hand feeding. Having a couple cans on hand my be handy.

unless the cat is dehydrated, adding extra fluids can overtax other systems and add more stress.

Morning.  Mr. Dallymo has a minor hand surgery today so I took the day off to drive him to and from.  "It's just a local anesthetic, I can drive myself."  Uh, no.  I bought some new facemasks off of Etsy and they're beautiful, so I'm going to sport one for the waiting room.  "Who's that mysterious woman over there, in that fabulous mask, reading that September 2008 issue of 'Good Housekeeping'?"  It's sort of a demure floral print; if I really wanted to wow them I'd wear the one with the gorgeous blue and gold cloisonné look.  They wouldn't even know what hit them.

All of the continuing healing vibes to Larry and Taylor, and Hope is such a great knowledge resource.
