Readers,  UNITE!
Super good deals at the HarvardBookstore sale!
https://hbswarehousesale.com/

Thanks for that...
I'm trying to talk myself out of one or two that I found.

But why?
They're good deals!

I know, you are right. Just that I am trying to rely on the library more these days than spending more $


Yep.  I hear ya.  I read waaaay too much to buy books.  I'd be dead broke and buried in books!

I have accomplished my #1 goal for the day. (week!)
A tree had taken root beside my trailer several years ago. It was now as tall as the trailer. The trunk was 4" across, not a sapling. It got whipped around in the thunder storms and was going to do damage to the siding soon.
I got out my saws-all and cut that MF down. Naturally, it fell on me as it came down. It should have been a 2 man job but none of my neighbors were home or physically fit enough to help. So, I did it alone!
Then I had to drag it down the path into the woods to get rid of it.
But, it. is. done!
I. Am. Woman. Hear. Me. Roar!

maxheck: Mitch Taylor's Bro: maxheck: Question for experienced kittyfriends:

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?

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.


I see. Well, I hope he gets some medical care soon.

Hi Benny! I think you've come to the right place for love and belly rubs, even if only for a few years.

You're very kind.

How is Pig and Lucy and...you had a third fur kid, right?

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. : - (

danceswithcrows: Real Women Drink Akvavit: I realize that I love my little car. I love her SO MUCH that I'm going to name her and buy her something fancy yet affordable for her name day. Name suggestions welcome

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.

Makes sense..although I betcha if there was one you really wanted, it could be bought, and then passed around to other Caturdites who might be interested. I'm thinking about making a "Staff shelf" in the library so that us adults can swap out books!

While I was soliciting names for my Tiburon, someone suggested "Titania". This would probably have worked, though it sounds almost like a name more fitting for a British aircraft carrier. I finally went with "Tori" after Tori Amos, because A) red car ~= red hair B) good sound system C) not entirely safe.

I'm always sleepy, and I figured the waking up numerous times a night is just the way it is for me. But I have never tried melatonin -- guess I worry that it would make me even sleepier!

apotheosis27: Today is the heaviest of Caturdays for my family.  We have to say goodbye to our beautiful Lucy.  She's been my partner in crime for 12 wonderful years (including a couple of years in Australia!) but her kidneys have finally given up.  Have a vet coming to do the final house call today.  She'll be basking in the afternoon sun.  I'm going to miss her so much.  She's getting non-stop cuddles today.

[Fark user image 850x637][Fark user image 850x637]


So very sorry for your loss of lovely Lucy. We understand here - it has been a tough year for many of us in regards to losing a beloved furbaby, including me. Feel free to vent, laugh, cry, post pix, whatever. You've come to the right place, friend. Be at peace knowing your are with your little girl until the very end, helping her cross the Bridge in the kindest way possible. I know it hurts like hell right now, but trust that the empty place left by the piece of your heart that goes with Lucy is filled with the piece of her heart she left you to make it better.

bobug: random guess: Although I bet you were too sick to consider any other way than ahead
My favorite quote by Adam Lindsay Gordon

I like that. Actually, part of why I felt like a poser was that I KNEW intellectually that I was sick, but I wasn't in extreme pain, had no open wounds, couldn't see anything wrong, and still had my mind and humor running full tilt. That first day was terrifying. The ER doc looked at my husband and berated him "Couldn't you see how pale she was? Don't you care?" I pointed to him and said "Get out, now, and do not come back." Mr. Bobug was in tears. I've ALWAYS been pale (curse you, Scotts-Irish ancestry!) Then, when the blood kept hemolyzing before they could get it to the lab (they ended up carrying it on a pillow, so it didn't get broken up), and one of the techs said, in the hallway "Her blood looks like it went through a blender", yeah, I got a bit scared. But... he was my concern. If I was going to kick it, it was going to happen. There was nothing I could do to control that. I could, however, control other things. How I acted (they were doing their jobs, drawing blood. I wasn't going to yell at six sets of blood tests in 4 hours, and half a dozen blown veins), whether I looked at it as "the end" or "I'm not done yet." And so on.

Life's about what we choose, about the events we control. :) It's all good, though. I got a bunch of cool new stomach scars, I look like a former junkie, and I get to go in for the early hours shopping, since I'm immunocompromised :)

AND Djeli is going to let me win on helping people, because she thinks I'm cute and fluffy and underestimates me :)

bobug: While a lot of us joke about competing for people to help... we are here. Times are rough. Jobs aren't coming back quickly. We're not even part way through this pandemic. If you, or your fur babies, need help, reach out. I know Djeli and I have emails in our profiles that you can use, that are valid (I can't remember who else's are, just that a few aren't). Just say you're from Fark in the subject, so we know it isn't spam. Or post here, and watch the Helper Piranha come out :)

Services offered:
* A friendly ear
* Human food
* Pet food
* Vet assistance
* Resume help
* other duties as assigned.

We need to be there for each other. Every one of you matters, and shouldn't be suffering, or worried that you won't have enough to buy groceries.

tigerose: apotheosis27: Today is the heaviest of Caturdays for my family.  We have to say goodbye to our beautiful Lucy.  She's been my partner in crime for 12 wonderful years (including a couple of years in Australia!) but her kidneys have finally given up.  Have a vet coming to do the final house call today.  She'll be basking in the afternoon sun.  I'm going to miss her so much.  She's getting non-stop cuddles today.

I am sad for the impending loss, yet glad that Lucy has had such a loving home all of these years. Yes, we do miss them terribly when they are gone. I can't imagine not having an animal in my life. I think the longest I've ever gone was 2 months! Then I couldn't stand it anymore and we went to the shelter, and Eli picked His Boy!


You summed it up - I haven't been without a furbaby for very long, ever. This is the first time in the twenty years Jase and I have been sans-furbaby. It's weird. I don't really like it, but I know patience is key here. When it happens, it happens.

This cat LOVES the weighted blanket.  So does the other cat.  And the dog.  It's a pretty great blanket.


I've been thinking about buying one for myself - the weight of the old quilt (R.I.P.) my Nana made for me used to help me with my anxiety. Do you recall the brand and weight of the one you have?

As for pet blankets, my babies stole all of our Chanasya brand fuzzy blankies and pillow covers. Kate would make sure to take a nap on every single one of them, every single day! They're weird: they have no filling at all, but are super warm (especially two of them) and super soft. I love them, but there's no weight to them, really, which I miss.

*hug* the house is just so... Wrong... Without them, isn't it? You will find a wonderful new overlord, when it is time.

Timid Goddess: maxheck: Question for experienced kittyfriends:

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?

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."


Hi, sweetie! How are you feeling today? Better, I hope - hang in there, cuz we're hoping and wishing for you, fam. Do you need anything?
