(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

Word! I'm taking an online class, so I have homework in addition to work work. It consumes most of my Friday night and Caturday. I think this is the final week, so maybe I'll take a break before I embark on the next class.

Mudd's woman: tigerose:
Otera:

Well, I am having a difficult time getting down there. He is a big squirmer to begin with, but he is not letting me get sufficient access.

I wonder if I will have to scruff him. He's a big boy now. But I might just have to get a little more assertive. Heck.

Never be afraid to scruff a cat. No matter how hard you squeeze, it doesn't hurt them (despite what some people will say) - I have cared for many fosters/friends & neighbors cats as well as cat sitting - I always have to explain that it's easier on them (natural instinct to relax) and easier on me (less bleeding).

If you have do something by yourself that requires more than two hands, use a Binder Clip to scruff the cat (I recommend Medium to Large for small/regular size cats, and Jumbo for cats the size of Finnegan - I may have a few spares laying around if you need one, lemme know and I'll send it to you).

And as someone else mentioned, use the smallest possible scissors you can find (I use the ones that came with a hair trimmer) it allows you greater range of motion and is a bit less scary to kitty. Best of luck!

Christopher Moore has the same feel. The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Grove, You Suck (A love story), and more. I giggle.

I too love Carl Hiasson, and shall look for Christopher Moore. Thanks!


Seconded! Christopher Moore is a hoot and a half (and keep your eye open for Rodrigo the talking fruit bat)

Oh man. You needs to call the MAN and ask for help. Tell them they are threatening you and your neighbor with bodily harm and you are aftraid of what might happen. And remember, they have to cross the threshold before you plug them.

That's a bit of a sexist assumption. Maybe she's a middle management bird. Executive, even. With her own corner office and shiny red stapler. YOU DON'T KNOW.

Evening all, just making a turkey burger and prepping my brain for next week. Going to do my Monday office cleaning since my desk will be filled with crumbs and everything else. Waiting to hear back from the cousins about the cost of the fence other than that a boring Sunday.

I know I'm a newbie but everyone's right. They are scaring that lady who feeds you, and that's not right. Tell the police that if they don't do something...someone else may, But call them.

Hot off the brain, and tissue alert.

From Above

From above,
I watch you.

Grieving for me.
Missing me.
Watering the world with your tears.

I know.
It hurts.
I did not want to leave either.

You gave me such love.
Filled my life with good things.

I was never hungry,
I had a lap if I chose,

Or just to be
Close to you.

You took me to the Sainted Vet.
Even if I didn't want to go.
You understood.

Spoke calmly to me.
Stroked my fur.
Gave me confidence.

You laughed when,
I sang the song of my people.

Sometimes,
you joined your voice with mine.

Solidarity.

When the Thunder rolled,
I would need your
Soft voice..

Invited to
Climb under the covers,
Nestle in a bed of blankets.
You knew.

And helped.
More than you can know.

I knew comfort,
And kindness.

I shared your life,
It was good.

Time,
Does not matter.

Only love,
Of which I knew
In abundance.

Yes,
You did see me,
A whisp of memory.

You may have heard
My feet,
Jumping from the bed.

I wanted to remind you,
That I will gladly
Move aside,

And make room
In your heart,
For another.

You are needed.
A heart such as yours,

Has infinite depth.
And you will honor me,
More than you can know,

If you open your heart,
To another.

Then, I will
Be complete.

I will still watch
Over you.

And I shall
Be Blessed.

For my person
Has gifted to me,
Another.

To hold your heart
In velvet paws.

So can someone seriously threaten 2020 and make it go EABOD or DIAF (or both).

So today, they told us that they want to get grandpa home on hospice tomorrow. He is starting to go downhill rapidly and if we want him to have any type of comfort (or maybe rebound some by being at home), we got to get him home. So dealing with that. Mom called me this am, said she wasn't feeling good and wouldn't be able to bring me lunch to work. That's fine, I had planned on leaving early anyways to take care of things. I get a text message as i'm leaving that she needs me home. So brain goes to worst thoughts. Turns out, she needs me to take her to the ER. She wouldn't keep anything down and had actually passed out earlier in the day and hit her head in the bathroom. So thankfully, no concussion but severely dehydrated and has a bad case of colitis. Oh, and she managed to pass out again at the hospital when her BP bottomed out, again. So now, her medical and grandpa's medical has fallen on my shoulders because I'm the only one with that background *(other than mom). thankfully, other family members are helping with the non-medical stuff, like taking care of grandpa's dog and getting house ready for him to come home. However, it's like Holy fark!!

Go away 2020!!!
