(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

valnt9: Otera: tigerose: Otera: Manic Depressive Mouse: Has anyone heard from DLC? That was a rather worrying message he posted. [Fark user image image 501x335]

Seriously.  I'm concerned.  Haven't seen posts from DLC since things got spicy at his place.  I hope he's okay!!!!

I sent him an email last night. I have not heard back from him yet.

I know there was conversation about whether any caturday'ers had bail money for him.... Did he have anyone's number to actually make use of that or is that a running joke in Caturday or.......????  I got kicked into Momma Bear mode in seventh grade when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and Momma Bear mode has never shut off.

more or less a running joke. nobody has needed it yet, but I'm sure would be taken seriously if needed.


I had figured it was, but, like I said, Momma Bear mode.  My hackles don't go back down until I get told everyone is okay..... Here's hoping it just took a while before the cops left after sorting thing out, and he was just too exhausted to let us know how it went.

Manic Depressive Mouse:

As with everything in life, there are videos on Youtube. There's probably more if you need different angles; this is just the first I found:

Thanks. I'm wondering if I will be able to maneuver his lower region. Hopefully, if the clip works as well as it seems it would, I should be able to move his legs out of the way.

He should have my info, from another time. No calls, emails or text

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


One of the people with whom I work (she's about...54-55 years old) regularly works with college students and personnel and she has purple streaks in her hair. Doesn't seem to cause any issues.  : - )

We do usually hear from him by now on Monday mornings.
I'm getting a bit worried too.

Okay.  That helps me relax.  He probably was just exhausted from all the nonsense.

Someone had an interesting night again. I'll have to go for a wander around the neighborhood and see if I can connect to a lost tile/collar. I think I'll have to order another set of tiles. This is the last spare silly cat.
Weather has cooled down so it's the GPS harness for a bit then.

No response yet. Didn't see him on Pol tab, either. I don't have a phone number.

I wish Mao and Tabitha would become proper friends....

Tabitha jumped on the chair, and Mao ran over the the steps to try to pick a fight! I rotated the chair so the back would be between them and then meowed, getting their attention.  Successfully stopped the fight before it started.

You probably said something offensive and shocked them.

Speaking of (non-) shocking things, my hair is not shocking purple. In fact, unless you look closely in the light, you can't see much of a difference. It's a little darker and with a reddish tinge that is more pronounced in some places than others, but Fiance didn't notice and was skeptical even when I pointed it out. I know that I should be relieved that it's not completely uneven and doesn't look that bad, but....
