(People Magazine)   Shelter workers take in an orphaned new-born rescue kitten unable to walk. They made him tiny homemade splints out of tongue depressors, gauze, medical wrap bandages, and tape to keep his legs steady. The result is anything but depressing on Caturday   (people.com) divider line

4 years ago he went to the vet for his first shots, he was almost 3 months old and weighed 5 pounds.  My vet said he would be big.  Well.....he is!!!  I need to weigh him, I'm sure he is over 20 pounds.   He is tall and long.   Look at those feet.   No idea about his lineage but Maine coon and a mix was thrown around


If he's got feet, then he's got toes
Give us a pic with his toes in a pose

Farking HOT!!! 104 on the way home from work, so I HAD to turn on the ac in the car. And now, I'm drinking a warm beer waiting for the others to cool down in the freezer. Guess who forgot to put beers in the frig this morning? ME!!! D'oh!!!


It's not THAT hot here, but old Maggie came in the cat door panting, again. The Mrs. (Timid Goddess) got her some ice water. While she was drinking I wetted her fur down and she relaxed on my chair arm in front of the fan. After 20 minutes or so she was demanding gushy food and then she was off again to do her Important Cat Things outside.

There's water available outside, just not ice water.

Poor old thing (she's around 17) is seriously underweight, but still is active and eats and drinks. The panting unnerves me. I wish she would just hang out here inside instead of going out to do whatever it is she does. We've had quite a few cats over the years. Maggie is the first to refuse to slow down when she got old.

valnt9: sherpa18: Bathia_Mapes: Thanks to all who helped pay tribute and share memories of q_j in last week's Caturday thread. Final comment count was 2,429 when the thread closed on Monday morning.
I would like to add my thanks as well, and if I have my numbers correct, that just became the most commented thread in Caturday history. And to my way of thinking, that's as it should be, it just goes to show how well-loved he was. As valnt9 said, we did him proud.

He will always be in our hearts.

Hmm... That might be a bit beyond my capabilities right now, but I'll see what I can do ☺

Thursday night Cisco update.  He's fine, he's been looking and acting normal for days.  Something I haven't mentioned is they shaved part of his belly to do the ultrasound.  He's used to being shaved so it's no big deal to him.  He's getting much too used to gushies in the evening, and he also knows what happens after gushies (he gets pilled).  Today he tried to sneak out of the room, then hid under a chair where he thought I couldn't catch him.  HA!  I was much too slow with the camera this afternoon.  Buzzie snuck up next to Cisco as they were both eating the gushies side by side, but by the time I grabbed my phone Cisco moved.  Take my word for it, it would have been a great pic.

We've decided to move the pills up.  Mrs S is supposed to pill Cisco noonish to 1:00 or so tomorrow.  She claims she's not a good piller but Cisco is easy to pill.  She wants me to pill him at 5:45 tomorrow morning before I go to work but I think she can do it herself.  Saturday's pills will depend on when we pill him tomorrow, then he'll get his last pills Sunday when we get home (we're going to be out of town Saturday night).  We'll be done at that point unless the Vet finds something during Saturday's checkup.

It was an Amazon purchase.  FIL says it was something the site suggested to him.  All these toys, that five pack of Silver Vine sticks, a play tunnel....

I'm learning that catnip is kitty cocaine and Silver Vine is the kitty crack.  More extreme reaction

It's like more powerful catnip.  Nick and Mao really love it.  Tabitha seems... Apprehensive about how strong it will hit her?  I don't even know.
But I held a stick of the silver Vine out to Mao for her to enjoy.  She bit it twice, bit at it three times, her eyes went wide, and she attacked my hand like it was a snake!

It can be found on Amazon and chewy.  As you can see from those pictures earlier, you receive sticks.  Nick and Mao have responded to the sticks similarly to when they get catnip--- rubbing, chewing and all that.  Nick even threw the stick across the room and chased it!

Jasper was a year old yesterday. Here he is at 5 days old when he came with his siblings (Pearl, Opal, and Alabaster) as fosters. Crazy Uncle Hector is watching over them. Little did I know that Hector was actually picking out his replacement because he knew he would be crossing the Bridge in a couple of months. Jasper is in the white collar.

Here he is today. He has taken up Hector's mantle as a trainer of foster kittens. He has especially bonded with Payne who figured out how to follow Jasper onto the window hammock. He was rewarded by a bath.
