I didn't know cats were made of paper, why would Isaac be in the paper recycling?

Fireproof: /From the safety sign generator thread about two days ago.


The thread in question, which has a bunch of comedy in it. Mystic resembles the pictogram cat there as she's jet black and cobby. And I have to go get groceries, but am super non-motivated. Maybe after lunch.

sherpa18: Meanwhile, I had to have more medical tests/xrays/blood work done today, and I went back to the lab that did my last blood draw (as I was so impressed that I could not even find a blood drop on my arm the next day I went to shower, much less a black&blue or hematoma).

I had the same tech today, and when I got done complimenting her on her skills as she prepared to get my blood, she just stared at me and said I jinxed her.

Sure enough, she was right, she couldn't get blood to draw from her first stick in my left arm, and had to go to my right arm (hence why I have gauze/bandages on both arms right now). She was still good with the second stick, would definitely go back again :o)

I grew up on the northshore (Wakefield). I'm transplanted to providence R.I. these days though.

I'm a transplant too.  Born in South Jersey, lived all over the country. *waves*

Ey!!! JerZ!!

=P grew up north-west-central Jersey.  I'm in NC these days though.

My cat tax this time comes from back when we were just off the parkway

What exit?  (6 was mine.)

My mister and I also lived in NC for a spell.  (Franklinton)  I worked at Edward McKay Used Books and More when there still was one in Raleigh.


Ah, they're pretty big across most of NC. Ed himself retired or something and now his kids own it, I think. The name is now just "McKay's." Prices aren't quite as good as they were but it's still a good place to get things or randomly browse.

When I was first diagnosed with Autoimmune hemolytic anemia, I had blood draws two to four times a day (They lined vials up down my leg, no kidding). They blew two dozen veins while I was in the ICU. Half didn't come back. I moved to daily, then semi-weekly, then weekly, then biweekly... Now, I am FINALLY at 3 months. My poor elbows look like I was a heroin user. Scarred to all hell.

Long story short, I feel you, and sympathize.

Damn, girl - that had to be awful. Autoimmune diseases are so lame - I mean, it's your own body attacking itself. It's like being a dog who can't be satisfied with catching its own tail but is crazy convinced it must be destroyed - it's just, like WTF? (Please tell me they didn't have to get a sample of your bone marrow...*shudders*)

Transfusions, chemo treatment (also used on AIHA), high doses of steroids, more blood draws than you want to know, and, a year later, a splenectomy. I still have my graphed out results for every CBC, with trend lines, averages, variances, and so on. It wasn't awful... I lived. It could have easily gone a different way. I walked out of the doctor's office on Monday, feeling horrible and nauseated and exhausted. My hand on the knob to the lobby, and I said "I haven't felt right for five months. I keep coming, and just do not feel right." The doc finally did a blood draw. I was in the ICU 14 hours later, with a hemoglobin of 5.1. Down to 4.0 before the first transfusions. I had to sign a paper agreeing that it would probably kill me. I didn't tell Mr. Bobug. If it did kill me, I didn't want me dying in agony to be the last time he saw me. Man, was he pissed at me.

Spleens go by the 1357911 mnemonic ... 1x3x5 inches, weighing 7 oz, between the 9th and 11th ribs. Spleenzilla took up two ultrasound images. My nausea was from a grossly swollen spleen squishing my guts. After a year of steroids, it was reduced to "only" 4x8x14 inches... Weighing a few pounds. Bastard. He just wanted to go to the fashion shows in Milan. I am alive, reasonably healthy, and able to do much less extreme things to peeve Mr. Bobug. I am so lucky and thankful. I was one pause and 'just do not feel right' away from dying. ICU said it was a miracle I didn't stroke out or have a heart attack.  😊


Glad it turned out ok and you survived! (((((HUGS)))))

Vets can do a lot of things a regular doctor can. Best bet is to make an appointment. Something is wrong, and a vet can help your cat get healthy and strong again.

I mentioned as much to mom, and hopefully Simba will be romping about on all four legs soon. Right now he's doing the "hoverpaw" thing. Minor correction, Simba supposedly lives next door, so he doesn't officially own my mom.

No experience, but I would expect it to be pretty much the same as a human vet, anesthetic for the pain and to relax the muscle, then move the joint back into place.  Might need a general rather than a local because critters can't understand "Stay still a moment, then it'll be fine as soon as the swelling goes down."

Fark that Pixel: Mitch Taylor's Bro: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Mitch Taylor's Bro: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Hola! Just checking in before I head out to pick my car up  from the shop and then go out to see if the stores on my work list in the Bay Area  are on fire yet. It's been raining ash on me for the past few days no matter what part of NorCal I'm in, so  at this point I just want to get my work done while also not bursting into flame, thank you very much.

About the car - you know, they gave me a rental while they were working on my car. My car  is a 2019 Hyundai Ioniq and  I bought it brand new last year. It was a HUGE big deal for my whole family of usually poors. I was  spending about the same on gas every month as I would spend on a payment for a "cheap" hybrid vehicle, so I got a hybrid. I wanted it new, so I got a new one. I picked the Hyundai Ioniq because it was widely hailed as the best hybrid in its class and I know from experience that Hyundai makes a damn good, reliable car. I got the  base model - NO UPGRADES, DAMMIT! - because hybrids are hideously expensive anyway and that was all I could (barely) afford.

My rental was a base model 2020 Toyota Corolla. Now, before you go thinking "Oooo, now she wants an even newer car" - well, don't. It was a gasoliine-powered car, so the extra "oomph" while merging was nice, even if that extra "oomph" cost me extra money to power. The rest of the rental - I borderline hated it. I truly cannot  hand this thing back soon enough.

Every single feature and nicety that came standard in my Hyundai either didn't exist in the Corolla or was poorly placed (I'm lookin' at  YOU, USB port inside the center console with the cable-chewing lid) or a PITA to use. It was also a strange combo of analog and digital, like they didn't w ant to give up the best engineering for the kind of  dirty poor that would buy a base model Corolla. There were literal buttons on the side of the  dash screen. Like WTF??? There seemed to be another USB port outside the console where ...

Silly story that gets around to cats eventually:

I had a friend with occasional benefits who was into spanking and flogging, and she wanted to attend a speed-bondage course, but she didn't want to be without a male escort for some strange reason.

So I went with her. It was fun and much gigglage ensued. Later we all went to a BESS event. That was also fun, and much (suppressed) gigglage also ensued.

Anyway, she volunteered to get flogged, and I wandered down to the basement where I discovered three cats.

Several hours later, said friend discovered me napped out on the couch with three cats snoozing on top of me.

What can I say... I live a racy life.

Timid Goddess: Balder (keep away from mistletoe) came to mind, maybe an anagram for your Hyundai?


Idunn the Ioniq (to stay with the Norse mythology thing)? Isabella the Ioniq? Ingrid, Isis, Ishtar? Car names should be alliterative or have assonance or rhyme.

Bimmer Jones: I'd buy one if they brought the Tiburon back.


The Genesys Coupe is supposed to be the successor to the Tiburon. It's probably more expensive though. I own a 2003 Tiburon GT, and she's been a very good car.

Simba was in a fight recently, he doesn't have any sign of wounds or infection, perhaps they healed already.

But he does not put weight on his back right leg. Mom, who sees him daily and has an RN in human medicine thinks it's a dislocation.

So I guess my question is this.... Do vets have any way to yoink and set a kitty leg? Anyone with experience here?


Best bet is to speak directly with your vet in this case.
