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. :-)

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! [Fark user image image 425x424]

And now the amazon link is gone!?  How's a procrastinator supposed to send you litter?

Geez.


Oh wait I didn't realize link is gone. I didn't remove it or change anything? Try this?

Mudd's woman: almostsane:

Magnesium, which most folks are at least somewhat deficient in, helps with quality sleep.  I've been using CALM by Natural Vitality.  It's a powder you sprinkle into hot water & when it's done fizzing you can add cool water or not & drink it warm.  It's absorbed into your system quickly so take it an 30-60 minutes before bed & you should notice a difference. It comes in single serve packets as well as larger quantities so you can try it without a major commitment.

Obviously you can also get magnesium supplements in tablet & capsule form as well. And plenty of foods are high in magnesium: almonds come to mind.  I hope that you're able to get sleep soon!

This might be a good try for tigerose for sure?
I've been taking CALM for years LOL.  But I have been taking it in the morning.
It's part of my morning cocktail of various powders to help with my, er...digestive issues.
Even with all the stuff I take, I still deal with this um, tendency. Yeah, I'm donating my body to science. Or at the very least my G.I. tract.

I think I could break some records regarding how many things DON'T impact my guts. And this is coming from someone who essentially drinks her weight in water every day, exercises, and eats ridiculously healthy.
Even my gastroenterologist that I was seeing for a while was impressed. So to speak.
I don't know if taking the Calm at night would make a difference vis-a-vis keeping me asleep throughout the night...
I like that the Calm has the stevia-sweetened version. Just wish it were a bit less costly, considering I go through it relatively quickly.

TMI, sorry.


Magnesium does indeed help sleep, it's fabulous! It also helps with certain bowel conditions, mostly "slow" bowels. However, it is not an option for those of us with um, er, ah.. rapid exit strategies.

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😕

Yeah, I'm just the opposite. And even though I continue to use the magnesium citrate, I still deal with the sloooooow. Like crazy slow. It's frustrating. I've tried two different Rx meds as well -- both worked for about a month and then stopped working. So I said screw it.
It's been an issue for the majority of my life.

Sleep is the worst job I've ever had! Its work to go to sleep it's work to stay asleep and then it's work to wake up. I take lunesta which gets me about 5 hours decent sleep. It's not perfect but it's better than the not sleeping

Not specifically, but I've seen people use HTML tags and put it in one of the customizable sections. In fact, you did it for your Live Journal link.

Otherwise, you'd need to know to look for this (red oval) in the Amazon link.

While while I don't specifically feel your pain I know how difficult and sickening it can be. My youngest child, who turns 29 today! was born with mild spina bifida and has limited nerve function to the bowel, so impactions are something we try to avoid ,they're very unpleasant to say the least. And it's always a challenge finding the medications and foods that work to keep him balanced. I also have two cats that are sisters and have always been constipated. Most recently one spent three days at the vets with an obstipation. They're both on lactulose and it barely helps.  Dookies or lack thereof, size quality and consistency (thank you George Carlin) are frequent topics around here.

There should be another option to ship to the wish list recipient, who's address is hidden for privacy purposes. IIRC, the button doesn't look like the other shipping options.

Mitch Taylor's Bro: ProcrastinationStation: Got the list- is your shipping address part of it? It's wanting to ship to me.

There should be another option to ship to the wish list recipient, who's address is hidden for privacy purposes. IIRC, the button doesn't look like the other shipping options.


I wasn't seeing it and picked right off the list.  I've got to work a bit so will try again when I'm hone

there is another option I didnt know about, its becoming a collaborator for a wishlist. essentially it allows someone to add and remove things from another persons wish list. So if you have someone you know who is elderly or a luddite then you can help them set up a wishlist and keep it up to date with things they may need. I didnt explain it well but it helps when you know someone in need but has some issue with using a wishlist so you can help them so that others can get them stuff they may need.

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?!?!?!

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

Would it be feasible to contact a local shelter to see if someone would be willing to do that if the flight was paid? Just throwing out an idea.

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.


I'm just CUOTT from the parts I missed because my internet ....gggrrr

So far most of the airlines that carry unaccompanied pets have closed that service during the pandemic - United, American Air etc. One Farker, almostsane is looking into Pilots and Paws, which has to be initiated via a rescue, which should not be a problem. It's just moving slow which is understandable.

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. :-)

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 sma ...

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!

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.

Geez.


It's still there. It's her "website", not called out specifically as a Wish List link. ;-)

Is there a place for a wishlist? I shall totter off to see...I never check all the things that can be checked

Not specifically, but I've seen people use HTML tags and put it in one of the customizable sections. In fact, you did it for your Live Journal link.

Otherwise, you'd need to know to look for this (red oval) in the Amazon link.

Aaaah ok then! I did the livejournal so long ago - that must have been an accident. I put it there as kind of a bookmark because why not...my net is flakier than grandma's biscuits, hopefully I can get on a computer at a friend's house with a big screen I actually can see! Thank you for your help and all.

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.

Mudd's woman: almostsane:

Magnesium, which most folks are at least somewhat deficient in, helps with quality sleep.  I've been using CALM by Natural Vitality.  It's a powder you sprinkle into hot water & when it's done fizzing you can add cool water or not & drink it warm.  It's absorbed into your system quickly so take it an 30-60 minutes before bed & you should notice a difference. It comes in single serve packets as well as larger quantities so you can try it without a major commitment.

Obviously you can also get magnesium supplements in tablet & capsule form as well. And plenty of foods are high in magnesium: almonds come to mind.  I hope that you're able to get sleep soon!

This might be a good try for tigerose for sure?
I've been taking CALM for years LOL.  But I have been taking it in the morning.
It's part of my morning cocktail of various powders to help with my, er...digestive issues.
Even with all the stuff I take, I still deal with this um, tendency. Yeah, I'm donating my body to science. Or at the very least my G.I. tract.

I think I could break some records regarding how many things DON'T impact my guts. And this is coming from someone who essentially drinks her weight in water every day, exercises, and eats ridiculously healthy.
Even my gastroenterologist that I was seeing for a while was impressed. So to speak.
I don't know if taking the Calm at night would make a difference vis-a-vis keeping me asleep throughout the night...
I like that the Calm has the stevia-sweetened version. Just wish it were a bit less costly, considering I go through it relatively quickly.

TMI, sorry.


It was NOT tmi!!  Anyway, you might try taking CALM in the evening as well, just to see if it helps.  I take a tsp & 1/2 three times a day.  I just bought a HUGE (20 oz) container of it @ Costco for $4 more than what I was paying for the 8oz bottle at the Good Food Store (Missoula's independent health food store).  I'm not thrilled that it's flavored (raspberry-lemon) as I prefer the unflavored but for the cost savings I'll deal.  I hadn't even thought to look for it at Costco 'til a friend suggested it.

groppet: 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 am the same I haven't needed an alarm since 2005 after I got a steering wheel to the head, it was a long time before I had a good night sleep.
Last night I fell asleep out in the living room watching Netflix and was woken up at 2ish by the roommate dying her hair and getting ready for a trip to Shenandoah park in Virginia, went to my room and fell asleepish off and on til she left then I conked out til 6. Went for my walk in the park after that and now I am home.


I invariably fall asleep watching tv too.  Last night was particularly frustrating as one moment I was watching tv & the next (so it seemed, it was 2 hours) I was struggling awake from a deep sleep.  Then I could NOT fall asleep in bed 😣 Read for a bit but finally took some Advilpm.

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!!

Just putting this out there, but I'm between contracts and have time, so if anyone needs a critter moved, EIP. I am a friend of all cats and have dealt with many kitty medical conditions. I've also shepherded many humans through Africa and Asia. If you can manage humans, cats are easy. They have sense, sometimes.

Pay for the cheapest airfare and I'll move a puss-cat. You can pay for dinner at the finest local chicken joint as payment.

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! [Fark user image image 425x424]

Does your epileptic kitty take phenobarbitol?  If so, I have 11 tablets I can send you of 16.2 mg each. A few years old but kept in a cool dark cabinet.

Yes! There's math but the pharmacy does it - I get 15mg tablets and she gets .75 tablet in the morning and.5 at night. This keeps her to two seizures a year the last couple of years and they're not as bad as when she was a kitten having them every 3 hours.

So would you like the few I have?  It's not exact but I'm thinking if you split them in half it would be close to your 3/4?


Yes please! I'll message you

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. :-)

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!

It's insane how the price increased on the phenobarbitol!  At least out here: I initially was paying $11 a bottle & by the end it was $66 a bottle! 😠  Legal drug manufacturers are worse than illegal drug dealers IMHO😠

random guess: almostsane: groppet: 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 am the same I haven't needed an alarm since 2005 after I got a steering wheel to the head, it was a long time before I had a good night sleep.
Last night I fell asleep out in the living room watching Netflix and was woken up at 2ish by the roommate dying her hair and getting ready for a trip to Shenandoah park in Virginia, went to my room and fell asleepish off and on til she left then I conked out til 6. Went for my walk in the park after that and now I am home.

I invariably fall asleep watching tv too.  Last night was particularly frustrating as one moment I was watching tv & the next (so it seemed, it was 2 hours) I was struggling awake from a deep sleep.  Then I could NOT fall asleep in bed 😣 Read for a bit but finally took some Advilpm.

I sleep so good when I fall asleep in front of the TV but I hate wasting data so I don't! Data is a precious commodity here. DVDs just never do the same trick!


You have to use data to watch tv?  Even where I am I get like 18 channels using an over the air antenna.  The only bummer is that my PBS cuts in & out but I think it must be their transmitter more than my antenna; last night it was coming in strong & then all of a sudden it starts to pixelate & then it's gone all together 😨  And my antenna hasn't moved.  It's still out this morning so I wasn't able to watch P Allen Smith 😨
