almostsane: Ok been sitting in Target for over an hour mooching their wifi☺  Friend just texted she has plastic bags for me so time to buy a data card & head up the hill.  I'll definitely log on later to check in.  Fingers & paws crossed for mr bobug💜


His temps back up to 100, so he's calling the doc.Thankfully, she's mine, too, and they note in his record about me being immunocompromised, so he MAs don't blow him off.

Spaceballer: They just called me, good news... Nothing broken, but he's got some road rash. He either jumped or was thrown from a vehicle. At least he wasn't hit or run over. Other than that, just the usual feral kitten stuff.

I hate the way the vet does things now. I had to tell them 3 times "I don't know what's wrong with him. I found him in the middle of an on ramp. He doesn't have a name I just found him."

He's Lucky, I don't normally take that route home. The Catmobile is due for a transmission flush at the dealership. If I go in person I can flirt with the woman in the service department. She usually figures out a way to make GM pay for the flush for me. So he's kinda lucky I'm a flirt. Or I would've just called the dealership...

/14th kitty I've taken in this year


Seriously cool, farker. If you ever need money to cover bills or food for the foundlings, email me.

Does anyone have any experience with Yahoo Mobile?
It's relatively new, owned by Verizon, but claims to offer a plan for 39.99 a month per line that has most of the bells and whistles of more expensive plans?

I'm looking at reviews and I am just uncertain whether to make that switch. BF and I are already on a Verizon plan that costs quite a bit more than $80 a month...

I hope it's something ordinary that can be fixed with OTC meds, fluids, and rest.

Thanks :) Me, too. He's ticking all of the boxes, now. Started coughing an hour ago. They're determining if they want him to go to Respiratory for testing, or another location. So, we will see. At a minimum, cats will have an extra HALF! of the bed to sleep in for the next few days.

Dumb question:

Monarchs/caterpillars/milkweed...
I live in a top floor apartment and have an exposed balcony. I have a bunch of houseplants that I keep out there during the warm months and several bird feeders and a hummingbird feeder. Is there anything I can do to help at all in this endeavor?

[images.fineartamerica.com image 662x900]


Not dumb at all, and yes--as much or as little as you can/want, you can help.  Yet this is not something I can easily break down into a brief list any more than a website you might find with a search for "how to help Monarch Butterflies".  So I guess I'll answer from my own perspective and journey if that's ok?  I'm a well known rambler, in case you didn't already figure that.  ;)  For me, this really started in earnest when we moved to our forever city (April 2016), and soon home (March 2017).  Due to a number of circumstances, since my college years, I've bounced all over the country so it's been difficult to do long standing things in the past.

The most obvious question I should first ask since you mention the balcony is if you have room on the balcony for a bigger container (like a metal washtub).  The idea is that it stays outside but is large enough to handle some of your native milkweed and a few other native pollinator friendly plants with a bloom spread to keep the wee patch attractive throughout the flowering season.  It doesn't have to be perfect the first or even fifth try! And you can build up the variety over time, or change stuff out too as you figure out what works best for your balcony's "site" conditions (sun/partial/shade, compass facing direction, et al).  Even in a small space, you can offer basic habitat needs for them.  Things can be scaled down once you understand the basics.

There are also lots of citizen science efforts; types of outreach you can do in your community (growing native milkweed plants from seed and offering the seedlings to schools or at farmer's markets, for instance); as well as possibly utilizing methods like community gardens that will allow some non humanfood crops or volunteering at local parks; and even guerrila seed bombing in roadside ditches (though not in the regularly mowed types for obvious reasons).

My path towards helping them really started with a general desire towards conservation, as helping local critters is but part of a whole path towards restoring self maintaining ecosystems.  So for their part, I wanted to create native critter friendly habitats here as best I could on our postage stamp sized lot.  Partly because although the upfront work can be a PITA, the long term payoff is less work because natives tend to take care of themselves because they are used to being here long before I arrived.  Also, if I've learned anything from the activism of my youth, setting an example sometimes exposes people to the reality of what they too can accomplish.

We don't use any herbicides nor pesticides in our yard (the closest thing is baking powder and water spray for cucurbit leaf mildews).  The latter is difficult here because there is a county mosquito spray program.  They try to spray so the maximum effect is on mosquitoes' active time of day and only a few times a year as needed, because there is no such thing as a mosquito only pesticide, and if the spray rewets before it is washed away, it can still easily harm other critters that are more active in other parts of the day, especially on surfaces both natural and human formed.  One can opt out, but if your neighbors don't, that's useless because wind will spread the spray, plus any affected bugs that wander from a neighbor's to your yard can spread it too.  (It's why any milkweed I bring in for food I rinse off at one of our rain barrels which are encouraged here.  I know some places can't have barrels due to limited local renewable water sources.)

Early on, I found out we actually had a conservation agent in my small city and there was a conservation commission because our water comes from here--literally.  We don't truck it in or divert it from somewhere else.  I started going to the public meetings to understand what they do because at the time they had no one taking minutes locals could read at their leisure.  (That's since changed, thankfully.)  Meeting our Conservation Agent opened the way towards a few other things (like being introduced to some community garden/conservation groups) which also in a roundabout way have helped me understand what I, a single resident, can do from a civic angle.  That led me to research further about community efforts, and I even found out about new programs like Monarchs in the Rough, which is a collective effort of golf courses to dedicate a portion of their land to contributing to pollinator corridors, for instance.  (I'm still trying to get our local included, but a change of our Conservation Agent and the pandemic this year sorta slowed that progress.)

Because I'm not from here, I had also already started looking up info about parks and nature clubs once I found out we didn't even have a traditional Ladies Garden Club sort of thing here let alone a Naturalist Club--despite having two state parks in our borders.  That led me to the MA Butterfly Club (which honestly, I still am not a member of because budget), and their Monarch Guardian program.  Because I've been a bit more environmentally aware than some since I was a kid (my family helped this in numerous ways), I already knew they were one of many species in trouble, but not that I could do something besides throw money at an organization or get a science degree to go into the field.

So then I was also starting to find sites like https://www.monarchwatch.org/, https://journeynorth.org/, https://xerces.org/monarchs and https://monarchjointventure.org.  Even the http://millionpollinatorgardens.org/ movement.  I've also been aided by sites that help me identify native, introduced/naturalized and invasive/noxious plants too.  I first found my new favorite book, Native Plants of New England at my local library (which I just bought this month from the Native Trust), as well as others dealing with learning about gardens and critters in general.

Overall, it's been a sort of Alice in Wonderland sort of rabbit hole for me, and I still haven't found the bottom.  *chuckle*

have him take off his shoes outside. then his clothes when he gets inside. clothes go straight to washing machine and he takes a shower. then clean clothes.

lemurtx: Here's The Night Cat book app. I think I mentioned it last weekend or maybe Saturday- my days are one big blur. It's free and there are ads, or you can pay $1.99 for no ads.

Is that for Apple only?

Spaceballer: bobug: Spaceballer: Ugggggh!

Found a kitty in the middle of the on ramp of 275 on the way home from work this morning. Blood on his tail and he's very hot. Currently at Boyette Animal Hospital waiting...
[Fark user image 425x318]

/people were flipping me off and yelling at me for stopping and blocking the on ramp
//they're lucky I had a kitty in my hands
///was about to go all florida man on them

GOOD on you for saving the baby. Is it ok?

They just called me, good news... Nothing broken, but he's got some road rash. He either jumped or was thrown from a vehicle. At least he wasn't hit or run over. Other than that, just the usual feral kitten stuff.

I hate the way the vet does things now. I had to tell them 3 times "I don't know what's wrong with him. I found him in the middle of an on ramp. He doesn't have a name I just found him."

He's Lucky, I don't normally take that route home. The Catmobile is due for a transmission flush at the dealership. If I go in person I can flirt with the woman in the service department. She usually figures out a way to make GM pay for the flush for me. So he's kinda lucky I'm a flirt. Or I would've just called the dealership...

/14th kitty I've taken in this year


Are you sure his/her name isn't Lucky?

I wish - now the hubby has to go in to work twice today. With, like, other people. Some of whom have...children.
And he's decided that, since he has to show up at work for an hour this afternoon he'll just swing by the grocery store on his way home - then it's back to work around 7pm.

So: I've got 91% rubbing alcohol and I've got Clorox bleach. Which do I hose him down with first?

have him take off his shoes outside. then his clothes when he gets inside. clothes go straight to washing machine and he takes a shower. then clean clothes.
wash, rinse, repeat.
save the wipes and alcohol for surfaces.

That's the usual procedure, but today he doesn't want to shower and change twice. Ugh.

scrub hands, arms and face. change shirt and pants.


I would purchase some of these they filter smaller particles than the virus. And they're fairly inexpensive. They are also available on Amazon. DuPont Tyvek 400 TY127S Disposable Protective Coverall with Respirator-Fit Hood and Elastic Cuff. Tell me what size you're looking for and I will find the Amazon link for you if you want

You. I like you.

Believe me, if I could get him to wear one, I would! And so would I, for that matter. (Do they come in black? I pretty much only wear black...)

Those far as I know that brand only comes in white, you might be able to find other brands.

...and his name shall be... "Snake Jazz." :D

How about "Metal Solid"?

Aww! He's a feisty one! So cute.... Ya gotta cut him some slack, little guy's had a seriously crappy day. Glad to hear he's going to be okay. You're a Caturday Hero!!

But he was so sweet in the car. He even had me wondering if he was a feral or not. Now he's being a big meany.

/been up for 24 hours
//going to bed

Have a good sleep - you've earned it. Dream of good names for a survivor cat :-)


Well, I was gonna go to sleep... Some Farker decided to pick a fight in another thread. Dunno if I'm going to engage or not...

My wife and I were thinking of naming him "Reeves" after the dealership nearby.

I knew a guy who carried something like this in his trunk. He's a tech industry sales guy and got a flat tire on the way to an appointment. He changed the tire and tried to stay clean, but had smudges on his pants and shoes. Now he keeps the tyvek suit (no hood), nitrile gloves and those surgical shoe covers in his car.
