(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

tte, FangQ furr all.
All I can truly recall is 2d great flood of Bridge departures.  Our sing-cere condolences to those who've experienced.
Wishing to sing but all we get to do is via ZOOM.  Plumbicon sposed to do ZOOM too but we sposed to be simultaneous challenge!! Begin to fear for him, must'nt let him leave house by himself; he gets lost.   Had to leave His New Car in our previous-century neighbourhood.  See there are both Lyft & Uber here that can fetch us there if I Book.  Which I will; not make it That Early.  Also Never Let Him Go Anywhere By Himself.
Cat Note: Piikki the tortie we took in shortly after the GangOf5, climbed up in my lap this AM.  1st time ever.
Make Rounds now so can Book Trip to recover car.

Well, this just might be most perfect instance of the fark meme "user name checks out".

Thanks for the story this week subby *coughs*, sherpa! Very sweet. I hope the rest of the week has no sads for anyone!

Nope, I ruined it.
Well not sure if a sads or more flinging arms in the air saying fark it, I'm done

Wednesday, grandpa admitted to hospital for what appears to be colon cancer than has metastasized. He's 87 and doesn't really want to fight it more than he has to. Currently he's in surgery and due to COVID restrictions, the only person who can go to the hospital is mom. And well me but I can only go into the entrance to handle the errands and what not because if she leaves the building, she can't come back for the day. At least I only live down the street from the hospital.

Thursday, my cousin has a spot on his head. They're concerned for skin cancer. So he's being sent to a dermatologist and oh, you might want to do it to since you're similar in age and both fried in the summer months as kids. Sorry, I had my cancer experience 20 years ago, can I pass on this one..

I need to get drunk damnit....


I'm sorry to hear about your grandpa. F cancer! I hope that whatever happens, you get to spend some quality time with him. Also hope the spot on your cousin's head turns out to be something other than cancer.

That was me an hour ago.

Question: if I needed it, would one of you bail me out of the county lockup?

I'm sure that between us, we could pool some bail money!

That's good, my ground floor neighbor is branching out into product distribution.  And the people he's DEALING with drive very loud sound systems on four wheels.

Talk to the landlord..... first.  :)


The moar I observe, the moar convinced I am that my bible thumping holy roller of a landlord is picking up $$$ from the hole thing.

The Ice Queen: And related to the kitty, we have a litter like this in foster at our rescue. Some serious in breeding issues or something. One looks ok on the outside, not sure inside. One has something like cerebellar hypoplasia and does the weeble wobble thing when walking, running, etc. Doesn't slow her down.

However, Chonk boy, he is just like this little one. Back feet all twisted. One of our directors knew someone who worked in orthotics and someone with a 3D printer. They made his little braces for his back feet and with the vet, figured out a plan on how long to wear, how often, etc. He has turned around wonderfully! Feet are straight and while he still needs to wear his new set for some support (because he is chonky growing boy), he can at least walk on all 4 legs rather than kind of dragging the back legs. Of course, he is now dealing with heart issues and I think the director is going to foster fail him, but, nice to see the difference in him getting around.


I'm really glad there are people like you who do this sort of thing. I hope those kitties get better and grow up healthy and strong!

Ugh, good luck with that. When my problem neighbor moved out, I couldn't believe how much better my life became. Hope something changes with your situation so you can enjoy your own home.

Hmm... That might be a bit beyond my capabilities right now, but I'll see what I can do ☺
Quick and Dirty, I gotta go get some noms, BBL!

That just looks vulgar.......so in other words; PERFECT! :D

I'm not quite sure if that was a compliment, but if not, it wouldn't be the first time I have been called vulgar :o)

BTW, drop me an email when you can, all the email addy's I have for you are being returned as undeliverable, and I need to thank you!

On the plus size, I think I've located Jupiter.  It's bright, and right behind the moon by many arc degrees.

And when I check it out with the 10x70 binoculars, I can see really tiny lights arrayed to the right where Io, Europa, and Ganymede should be.

There's always someone who needs ((((hugs)))) here so take them if you need them. I got stung by a bee today while on my bike. Second time in two weeks. I was in doing HIIT cycles and am lucky I didn't crash.

This week has been full of happy kittens showing bellies.

tigerose: Well, yesterday the County Health Dept said they didn't think anyone should be doing in person classes until our infection rate goes down. No idea if there will be reductions in force becasue of this or not. It would make sense to keep us all on..but then again, it is the school board. I won't know until late Monday night. I might have to watch the school board meeting..ugh..


Paws crossed for good outcome!
