Compact Travel Size: bobug: Compact Travel Size: Thank you for having this link - I am in a cast with pins sticking out of my toe, it's hot, I'm sweating, and I can't shower. But I can eat a popsicle and watch cat videos. While trying to convince my cats that it's too hot to cuddle.

There are better ways to catch feline overlords than becoming a human voodoo doll.

Seriously... So sorry to hear you are mashed up. Is there anything you need?

/has three cat blankets at the moment.

No, I'm okay, thanks - AC maybe? I come off bed rest on Tuesday so then I can crutch my way to the grocery store for provisions. I'm running short of popsicles and actual food.


If you need food sent, we can hook you up with non-perishables. Just email.

Boberella: Diocletian's Last Cabbage: Well, boys and girls, it finally happened.

I think I have covid-19.

Oh no!!! Take care of yourself and I hope it's mild.
My uncle tested positive after a stay in the hospital for heart issues. My mom lives with him and her sister, and both have COPD, so I'm pretty upset. But mom was having breathing issues last week and tested negative... Has anyone heard of a false negative?
My uncle says he has no symptoms but is quarantined in a comfy basement... and has zero shame asking me for kitten pics to keep him entertained. He loved Coco as soon as he saw him...[Fark user image 850x637]
Anyway...Coco has always been super affectionate, but Cookie took her time getting comfortable. She took a long nap on my lap today ...[Fark user image 850x637]
Hope this helps anyone who needs cuteness.


I hope they all end up okay....and healthy! Coco and Cookie are very cute. :)

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.

Boogers is still in Indiana. We haven't found anyone wiling to fly out to Montana with him.


I would do it in heartbeat, but I don't have a valid passport/state ID that would allow me to fly :o(

I am lucky in that I did that "official" ID last year. Had to bring my Marriage cert..of all things! Kinda made me mad, as men don't have to do that..their names do not usually change..I think I had to have my ss card, my birth cert and the marriage thingy..what a pain..but now I can fly all over teh place..except I have to be at my job now..

I hope so too. My mom's pretty tough, and so is my uncle, but my aunt is pretty frail and dislikes doctors because 'bad news'. I feel bad for my cousins... we're all pretty close. We'll see what happens this week.

oh, when I did the "official" gold star ID I had to bring my birth cert, marriage lic., divorce cert., marriage lic., court approved legal name change, divorce cert., marriage lic. AND spouse's death cert.!
luckily I had an understanding clerk do my paperwork since I didn't have the first 2 marriage lic. since they were surrendered in the process of the divorces. he agreed they were null and void, that the divorce docs proved I was married and justified my last name change.
I better not have to do that again.

I had a false negative. According to my doctor it's not that unusual.  I don't have the greatest lungs and was really sick for 2 months but never had to go in the hospital. I got an ambulance ride to the ER but they didn't admit me. I'm fine now, it just took time.

Glad you are recovering. False negatives will always happen... Moreso, when there is a rush to market, changing protocols, poor training, lagging test results, or, if you are really unlucky... People not running the tests through. https://www.npr.org/2020/08/​10/9010644​84/california-coronavirus-testing-prob​lem-prompts-resignation-of-public-heal​th-offi

You has the Boogers?!?!?!

Boogers is still in Indiana. We haven't found anyone wiling to fly out to Montana with him.

I would do it in heartbeat, but I don't have a valid passport/state ID that would allow me to fly :o(


Is that a requirement yet? I thought when I was at the BMV recently they said it was pushed back to 2021 due to the whole COVID thingie. Then again, this was Ohio so maybe it differs by state. That and I didn't get the special one so I didn't really pay attention. I have to have Fed security clearance for my job so have a Fed badge (to take care of the Fed building aspect) and I'm a chicken shiat and am scared to fly so figured I didn't have to worry about that part.

I've heard that there can be false negatives, but if your mom has COPD, could it also be related to that? I realize (and have experienced it personally) that anxiety is running rampant due to the added stress of everything the pandemic has done to the economy and our morale, plus the usual ways we deal with stress are not allowed: talking about our problems with friends before they become larger problems. So, that could be causing her breathing problems, too.

Regardless, I hope everyone you know and love are okay or soon will be!

Another idea: can we afford a pet taxi service? I know it's not ideal, but if it solves the problem of getting Boogers out of Indiana and into a good home, I could kick in a few more bucks.

I've never used one of these services, but a quick search for "pet air taxi organization" led to

http://www.flypets.com/airports.asp

Again, I've never used a service like this, so I don't know how the animals are treated, but I'm just tossing ideas out there.

Thank you, random guess, for taking care of Q_J's Boogers (I'm sure he would've appreciated that phrasing). I see you have an Amazon wish list on your Fark profile. Is there anything you need in particular? Just say the word and I'm sure someone from the school of helper piranha will, uh, help out. :-)

Djelibeybi: bobug: random guess: 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.

That's always a struggle, to ask for help. I dont know if it's pride so much as it accepting that one is weak and unable to care for ones one's self or pets.

Yeah, but we don't count. We are Caturday. Like groot, but with more memes. We have all given and received help in our lives. There is no shame, and no debt incurred, other than to pay it forward, when you can.

bobug's right. And I'm liking "helper piranha" but it doesn't quite fit Caturday. All I'm coming up with right now is "caring clowder" and that's just lame. (It's been another long-ass day of cleaning - don't judge me ;-p )

We all need a helping hand now and again, and it feels good to be able to help.


You're probably right, but "helper piranha" is funny to me. It is like a helping frenzy in here sometimes...and that's a good thing! :-)

Found a QJ treasure in the archives! Gosh I miss him.

Boogers aka Minwee aka Boogie wishes to be outside [Fark user image 425x566]

You has the Boogers?!?!?!

I do's! We are trying to figure a home or transportation for him to a furever home. I'm overpopulated and living on $783 a month plus $16 Snap. He's a sweetie but I have to keep my cats away from him, they just aren't blending.

Thank you, random guess, for taking care of Q_J's Boogers (I'm sure he would've appreciated that phrasing). I see you have an Amazon wish list on your Fark profile. Is there anything you need in particular? Just say the word and I'm sure someone from the school of helper piranha will, uh, help out. :-)


Aaaaand...thank you for providing me with random's new farkie! XD

Oh I forgot about the Amazon link! I should correct it and will do so momentarily. You're sneaky!
I live for my pets. Don't we all. Two dogs, a boxer and a rat terrier. Ten kitties. Four have medical issues - a diabetic named Carl. Trying to stabilize him. Mucho dineros to feed that guy!
Two seniors with chronic constipation.
One epileptic cat.
A senior declaw that was dumped on me. Snickers and Booger both need wet food. Snickers eats a can a day plus access to senior dry. Boogers is down to two cans a day from three. A tad picky about his dry I have to find a brand for him. He can eat what I can get, He was super skinny.

The poop sisters take meds everyday.  T
epileptic cat is going well as long as we keep her meds on time. She lets us know! Because that's also treats time!
I sometimes use my snap to buy chicken sshhhh. A ten pound bag of chicken quarters make a mess of good pet food.This last time I put green beans and I forget what else to stretch it out the recipe and avoid buying a hundred cans a month. Less waste. They don't like this months homemade so the dogs get a little. Spoiled all of them!

So my fridge looks like all the yummos for pets and wee spot for me! Same for the house! A small space for me, most of it's for them. I want to reincarnate as one of my pets.
I make it work. I dont buy anything for me or the house. Ugh house needs lots of work. Picture window may not last the winter!
I
thankful I have low cost vetting with Pets I Need of Greater Cincinnati. $20 visit, $5 if a tech and includes his blood draw for glucose.  $7 flea meds. (Times ten) Insulin is about $40 a vial. If needles are donated then it's $10. The food is the killer! Carl's dietitic management is $38 per flat, 3 per month and $45 for a bag of dry - don't give his as much dry. Too carby. Wish that damn cat would stabilize! He's semi friendly but I have to keep him crated because he escapes or hides for days. Turd.
Fuel to get there is sometimes an issue but we figure it out. Litter is ways an issue. Not only for cost but for dealing with it. I need the lightweight because I'm decrepit from back problems and old wet pee at litter is hard to manage in bulk.

I cram other household bills in where I can. Truck registration is past due. I know theyre being lenient which is good because truck needs repairs. I am fortunate to live in a small rural town. Not a lot of services like big cities have but a decent enough food bank and guy who will wrench on my truck and occasionally buy parts in exchange for a casserole or babysitting. We make it work.

BTW - I was in better times and fully able to care for my cats and dogs plus other peoples in my community. Then I lost the bulk of my savings and became disabled. I promise to keep a pet start to finish. I've got 4 seniors, 2 young under 4 and everyone else is middle aged. They're all castoffs I could not find homes for. I now good for a shelter but not acquiring any more!

Seriously... Mail me. Brobug is in Cincy, and talking about maybe adopting an overlord. And I can send some stuff, but I will need a mailing address.

I would've liked to have gotten you some gushy fud, but Amazon is sold out and 3rd-party suppliers wouldn't fulfill the gift order. But hopefully the stuff in the order will help you out a bit. Thank you for caring for so many fur kids!

You're welcome! The picture did come through, too. So cute! Looks like you're only missing a white cat and you'll have the whole set :-)

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?


My vet sedates and resets. If it's something likely to pop or again, like a kneecap, they get a cast. In any case I do physical therapy with them to avoid future problems. Good luck and keep us posted how kitty is doing!

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]


RIP Lucy. My condolences, apotheosis27 ::hugs::
