Oh man, I was just going to post that today is Primo's six-month anniversary. He went to the bridge on 2/23/20, before all this pandemic stuff got out of control. I have gotten to the point where I still miss him terribly, but rarely tear up. I couldn't read that poem, so I found a bigger version...and now I need a tissue.

lemurtx: almostsane: lemurtx: Mudd's woman: Oddly for me, I have slept like crap the last few nights -- waking up constantly (more than usual) and essentially being awake since about 3 each night.

Now I feel like complete ARSE. I really seem to do poorly without a certain amount of sleep -- an amount that others might consider...much.

I can't help it. : - (

[i.redd.it image 500x375]

(actually I NEVER need my alarm clock)

I feel your pain. My new doc prescribed trazodone for sleep and it's not working. I got a new bottle of melatonin and that didn't help, and the vistaril prescribed by old doc made me really sleepy the next day. I think I got maybe 3 hours of sleep, and finally gave up at 12:30 and got up early to get ready for work. 😩 It didn't help that two family members texted and woke me😕

Try Gabapentin?  My dog, Max, was (is) taking Trazodone & it helped some but when we added Gabapentin it really helped.  Thank Bast it's not that expensive.  There's also an OTC version you can get in the supplement section.  Also, a friend of mine swears by valerian root!  Also in the supplement section.  Good luck!!

Thank you I will look into gabapentin and valerian root. Melatonin has worked in the past but I've found different brands affect me differently.


That's likely the inactive ingredients.  I have some cancer survivor girls who can only take tamoxifen from specific manufacturers because they have reactions to others, despite it ostensibly being the exact same medicine.

Timid Goddess: Mitch Taylor's Bro: Riche: [Fark user image 700x368]
(pic unrelated)

Greetings all!

Between deep cleaning the house, minor panic attacks and various other hijinks going on I haven't taken the time yet to go through the Caturday thread yet. I look forward to doing that tonight or tomorrow.

Thank you all so much for helping us out! I'm at a loss for words on how grateful I feel.

=================

It appears Maggie has wondered out the cat door for the final time to go to the rainbow bridge. It's been several days and she wasn't feeling well at all. I much prefer being with my furry kids when their time has come but I respect Maggie's decision to find a shady spot somewhere in the trees not far away. She had a long happy life.

Here's a picture of Maggie with Timid Goddess from just over ten years ago:
[Fark user image 850x637]

I'm sorry about Maggie. Hugs to you and Timid Goddess!

I think it was eighteen years ago that Riche and someone else stopped when they saw an accident.  The mother didn't make it, but there were two tiny kittens.  The other driver took one.  Riche came home with a tiny tortie kitten.  I was reaching for her before he finished his running joke of "Can we keep her?".

She lived on my computer desk when I was awake and home.  Not quite old enough to be weaned, I fed her KMR on a disposable plate, then transitioned to KMR Step 2, before weaning her onto dry food.  I tentatively named her Willow, but Riche told me that she said her name was Maggie.  She was sort of litter box trained from the first day she got here.  I knew that if she went to a certain spot on my computer desk while I was playing EverQuest, she needed to "go".  I would scoop her up, deposit her in the litter box and sure enough, she would go every time.  When she finished, I would lift her up and plunk her back on the desk.

She was one of our hunters.  No mouse was safe from her.  She found and brought other animals inside alive more often than not.  A live mole, an infant squirrel she found in a nest, garter snakes, birds.  I think the largest she managed was either a starling or a grackle.  Round up the cats, close doors, shoo the bird outside.  Or pick up the snake and take it outside.  The live mole?  Cover with a washcloth and wrap it up long enough to dump it into a shoebox and outside it went.  The live infant squirrel sounded like an air raid siren when she brought it in.  Not knowing where the nest was, that one went to a nearby wildlife rehab center.  As did any live bird that I could catch.

She loved being on or near me.  Especially when I wasn't feeling well or when I was pregnant.  Goodbye, Maggie.

Hi, all.  Spent the whole weekend catting, naps and occasional fuds.  Still hacking up a storm, still get a little dizzy standing up.  But overall I think I'm improving.

He'll probably be fine. Salt intake would be a worry, but he probably didn't get enough to be a problem. Just keep an eye on him for a while.

He was gnawing away!

There was also teeth marks on the chopsticks, so maybe after he punctured the soy sauce he moved on to the more palatable paper wrapped chopsticks.

This IS funny but I encourage people to actually place kitty boxes & food dishes far apart.


Salem's certainly are. I don't want to eat in the bathroom so I figure my cat doesn't want to either.

Good job!  =P first step to being able to get up early is getting to bed early.  Hopefully wearing yourself out today helps cement your intended schedule!

Let us know if you need anyone to send you groceries, okay, doll?  Even if you're feeling a little better. While you wait for your test results, it's best to assume the result is positive and that you'll wind up with a chronic or acute case of it.  That way you have your lifelines arranged in any case and can get focus on getting better.
You're getting enough chicken doodle soup, right? Do you need tea?

Anyone know how fast I could get a package of homemade chicken stock to this man from Raleigh?  Is that fast enough to be safe?  (I make a mean chicken stock)

I got the peppers, carrots, celery, onions, garlic, bay leaves, and chicken (spines and gizzards) I need for it. I'll just want to try to pinch some chicken feet to set it nice
