(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

Yeah, I thought so too!  He has a bit of a growth on his muzzle, but looked pretty healthy.  Poor baby was lying down in the shade when I had the audacity to come out of the garage to go back to work after lunch.

Meanwhile, internet is back (obviously), TV is back, and while phone service has been restored, it appears my cordless phones have bit the dust and are pining for the fjord :o(

For all that are used to regular phone calls from me, please be patient until I can afford to buy new a new one :o)

Most Pleased to see Cisco's KiloKitty this time, & me bitty part of AbetAidAssist that with comment #999.
Less Pleased at Unca Cabbage's antics, esp if Making Trouble.  Unlikely "Good Trouble" like recently late John Lewis.
Right after emailing his real name to Timid Goddess, read that sherpa18 has all the available data.
FangQ furr All, get to review on morrow.  Plumbicon scolded me for not turning in few minutes ago.

Wish I could find picture of Caturday Commando, 've seen it here. SeekFor functions not.  She's who we need to get him out of whatever he got himself into.

Manic Depressive Mouse: You know that little voice in your head that says, "maybe you should reconsider" before doing something stupid? Maybe I should start listening to that voice.

Since I don't have to be on campus until at least October, I decided this was a good time to dye my hair purple. I used to dye it all sorts of colours and had several facial piercings, but in the quest to become a responsible and respectable-looking member of society, I have done away with both. The students may have liked them, but I worried about being seen as a figure of authority like that. I won't see any students, ergo I can have purple hair.

I bought a box of temporary dye that is only supposed to last 10-15 shampoos. Fiance asked why I didn't go to the salon, which is a valid question that we live almost above a salon that accepts drop-ins, but I assured him I was capable of doing it myself. I was not.

After opening the box, I thought there wasn't enough dye, but decided to forge on anyway. There wasn't nearly enough dye. I did my best, but jumped in the shower and did at least 5 shampoos already. It's still wet, so it's too early to tell how it turned out, but if it turned out half as well as this cat's hair, I will be happy.

[Fark user image image 421x492]
In other news, I may be going to the salon tomorrow and begging them to fix it.


I know you're in Germany, what brand did you use? (And what's your normal color?) I didn't want to bleach my dark hair, so I got the kind that washes out in 30 shampoos. I didn't do it by myself (I always have done regular color myself) but Mrs L helped. It "took" mostly on one side on top 🤪 at least that's what I see everyday. I've held off on doing it again (should have left in longer) waiting until I get my hair cut, so I'll have less hair😬.  I'd always wanted purple hair, saw the boxes at the grocery and decided to go for it. Since we're social distancing, my boss apparently can't tell!! I'm hoping after I get it cut, more purple will stay in🤣, and of course I'll leave it in longer-read the time on the box wrong.
Good luck with the color!!!

The Ice Queen: 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!!!


I am so sorry you are having to go through this. I'm sorry about about your grandpa, I hope he can be made comfortable and be a peace at home. I hope your your Mom is ok, and it's not serious. (((((HUGS)))))

I have called for a welfare check for our DLC. While I understand that some may disagree. I am worried, and given his diabetic issues, I just could not stand by and do nothing. I stand willing to take any flack for my actions. I care. And while there may be reprocussions...cause you know...we are not the most sober bunch..ordinarily, I would not worry, but given his last posts? Yeah. I can't stand by. It is not in my make up. So I gave my number to the police and I will stay awake until I get a call. Might be a long night.

Not much, main issues are high winds (expecting sustained 50mph, gusts to 60) and heavy rain (6, possibly 7 inches in the next 12 hours).

...and Tropical Storm Ignoramous has strengthened back into a Category 1 Hurricane. This could get interesting tomorrow morning :o)

Seriously? Oh, ffs. Well, try to get some sleep or at least rest your body and take your mind off of this for a bit. You've done all you can do for now, so shore yourself up for tomorrow's news, just in case.

Between DLC, sherpa and Otera, I'll be trying to do the same, myself, in a while. Between natural storms and personal storms, there's plenty of worry to go around - we'll share. And whatever happens, we'll come together to help as best we can 'cuz it's kinda what we do.
