Try this once more. Massive Destruction in iglou in-bx did not work! Figured I may as well return here, as ABC wkly FairyTale ended.
professional_vampire, sorry Cracker Jack chose to go into Full Attack Mode onto your spouse. The lot here don't attack us but rather each other when the mood for Cat Wars arrives. I've never managed to photo any of those, btw -- move too fast.

Someone said re this foto "Wilford Brimley monkey! High blood sugar!" Another said "That's not a monkey with a 'stache, but a 'stache with a monkey." Breed is Emperor Tamarin, which some may recognise.  GdSearch reveals they don't appear to be threatened, & some are even sold as pets (wd be messy).

tigerose: lilyspad: Tigerose....do you dampen the cotton BALLS first to soak up the scent, or just put it all in dry? Just curious, in case I ever want to make some. :D

No, all the ingedients are dry..unless your cat deposits it somewhere very wet! I know my cat did! (future hubby's coffee mug)....dont ask why itnis a potato..must have een some craft thing I saw...nylon doll?

I seem to recall everything going in dry. Then, if the cats didn't realize it was there, wetting it to get the scent going. One wetting was all it ever took.

tigerose: sherpa18: And now for the aforementioned play time pics (potato toy courtesy of tigerose) / many thanks for making my little kitteh very happy :o)

I am so glad he is enjoying the potato. For those not in the know..when I had my Siamese, Aiko, and I was a broke student..I would take one dead pantyhose foot, stuff it with cotton and catnip..knot it, then turn it inside out and knot again. This was her favorite toy, until she passed at age 15 from renal failure. So simple, but a certified kitteh delight! The smellier the foot the better!

Dragon says he highly endorses this product. whateber da hell it iz ....

I have an old bandana that I put catnip in and then tie it up in knots. Gremie likes to drop it in Jack's water dish. After he gets it good and wet he runs around the house throwing it everyone. I think he likes to see everyone jump away from the wet rag.

Lol! Cats do haveva sense of humor!

Sherpa...I'm glad the knee is a bit better, and very happy that your Dragon is still up and being his "Dragon self"! Still sorry for all the "urps"...hope it's not too much for you to clean up, with your bad knee and all!

Off to watch some football, and have another beer before dinner! Nite all!

Lily's huff pose the back of disdain, maybe rather than distain as tigerose typed on pg 14. Whatever I recently did went ahead to 15, if it even survived. Had intended to say summat about distain.
Overabundance of linkies to feed to you all.
Link runs 1:25, features comely young Nylah.
Link :39 & Link :50 are rather similar. 2d one dates from 2011 sometime, b'lieve they said.

professional_vampire: lilyspad: Cracker Jack is in time-out right now.

Uh-oh!! What happened? Or should I not ask....?

Hubby was petting him when, without warning, he attacked hubby's hand. Not just a play attack - a real, "I will kill you if I can" attack. He spent an hour locked in the bedroom and has had his favorite toys taken away for the rest of the day.

Might be a good idea to have Cracker Jack checked by a vet.. a sore? He went for the hand, not the face.. I have a 3.5 legged cat named Trip..' short' story - I was summoned to the shelter, ended up with a black kitten with a damaged front paw.. 'radial nerve damage' was what my vet said.. does not impede or bother him at all.. found out that he allows 'timed' petting.. the hard way... have figured it out: when he,s had enough, his vocalizations change.. I just had to 'learn' what he was saying.. no issues since then, and he has upped his 'time allowance' considerably... also, the paw on that leg is bent in, like 90 degrees in... his own personal hockey stick.. and it is used as such, with great accuracy.. with a wicked backstroke.... neighbor was picking up his PC.. crashed a drive.. got lucky and was able to mirror the image onto a new one.. he asked for one of my left-over Halloween treats ( full sized candy bars) and said he was hungry.. Trip went to the kitchen.. I think that he knows all of the words that infer food.. think that he lives to eat.. he grazes at the dry-food plate... something must have set Cracker Jack off... doesn't sound like normal behavior, from your description... might be worth checking... glad that no major damage was done. !!

Just got a warning from within computer that it looked as if anti-virus was turned off; always a risky move. Furr-ther investigation revealed this not to be so.
Comment that somehow the 3 sister siblings from the GangOf5 come to be fed when we call, which is usually "Little girls, come eat please!" These are the Beta feline fems, Cali, Tiger & Tori. Furry & Piiki are the Alpha fems. Ginger responds to being called, but none of the other boys do. Ginger wd be Alpha male, Wakko & Yakko Beta males, Jimmy & Stripe maybe Delta males (can't count by letters in Greek, never could, can't even recite alphabet in it; also Too Lazy to Look Up).

p_v - Another thought about Cracker Jack... sometimes they smell something "not right" about their hooman and attack it. Did your husband touch anything odd? Also sometimes the "not right" smell is a hooman medical condition - I've heard of cats attacking areas they smell cancer on. Not to freak anyone out, but it's possible he smelled something that upset him?

yobbery: akimbotoo: Well, I finally made it in to say Happy Caturday! Had company that arrived Thursday evening & just now left so I am sure it may take me until tomorrow night to catch up. Oh yeah. We were taking our parrot to the bird vet to be checked out on Friday. We are all ok, but rolled the truck on the ice and ended up on my side of the truck. Usual whiplash kind of things, and of course I had to tell the EMT that I also broke a nail :) I thought it was funny thing to notice. The hard-core tough part of the story is we made it back home, hubby put the studded tires on my car and we went to the vet anyway with the parrot who only had a tiny scrape by his eye. This is why we always wear seat belts!

Yikes! Glad you're all OK. I learned my seat belt lesson the hard way

Thanks! Seat belts have saved my life at least 4 times. I don't ever go without them, and wish everyone did. I am so glad you did learn the lesson.
2012-11-12 12:52:46 AM  

micromedic: Glad to hear you and all are OK Akimbotoo!!! I would have been very supportive and sympathetic about the nail breakage...

Thanks sweetie! I just thought it was such a weird thing to notice. I was just so relieved that we were all ok. The bruises are starting to bloom nicely, but I can hardly believe we were so lucky.

tigerose: I was thinking about natural disasters..and kittehs...and this...

Plaintive Cry

Where are you?
You were here a few memories ago.
Now you are gone.

The wind howled so.
It hurt my ears.


And now I cannot find you.
Our home is naught but sticks.
Surely you would not leave me here.


Would you?

I am so alone.
I am scared.


Water flows.
First just my paws are
Then the water rises.


Why did you have to leave me here?
I thought you would be back

Always Soon.

But you are not with me.
And I must go upstairs. 

I shall go smell your bed.
It brings me comfort.
It is what I know.

Hurry home please?
I am hungry.


Air that is dark.
Hard to breathe.
Whiskers singe.

Giant with 
Big hands.
Gloves of terror.

Oh! He's got me!
Nooo! Do not want to leave.
Cannot smell anything, panic!
Oh, where is my person?

Bright lights,
The smell of water.

Finally a familiar voice,
A face.
Salt water flowing.
Past cheeks, 
Midnight in hue.

My person.
My Comfort.

lilyspad: akimbotoo: Oh yeah.

OMG!!! If I had been in that truck, you would have had to get the inside detailed!!! Holy crap! Really glad you are all okay....

I looked like I was hurt much worse than I actually was because our full Coffee Mochas had splashed all over me. The lovely chocolate looked like it could be something else in the pre-dawn light. The cups didn't even break.

ThePuceGuardian Thank you for the beautiful pictures. I really enjoy waking up to them. If you hibernate, we would miss you too much to leave you alone. :) Now there is a visual...knocking on cave "doors"...yoohooo....*snerk!*

akimbotoo so your nail broke, but the cups did not? Interesting. I bet the EMT's were relieved to see that your stains were of the beverage variety! :) So glad you guys are ok! Am almost afraid to ask...how did the truck fair?

Oops! Gotta go! I have to be in to work by 7:30 am...

Meanwhile, another project, written up in new Cat Fancy issue, that cd use support of those who can.
Tale promoed on cover, Music can soothe shelter cats ... and yours. Mid-range frequencies, mellow tones, slow tempo & simple arrangement seem to be most calming. Rescue Animal Mp3 Project, founded by vet in N Canton OH at end of 2011, will provide shelters & rescue groups with a player each pre-loaded with suitable music, for free. Yes RAMP is 501c3! I should give them the one I bought for chorus 2-3 yrs ago but am not able to use, bcs unable to figure out how. Ought not to be all that hard, except controls are tiny. & no, Plumbicon hasn't been able to figure it out for me either.
Their URL deserves to be in the clear, but will need to linkie so you can get there easily. Then pls bkmark it for your future reference. Link Zine article says 16,000+ critters, cats & dogs both, have been calmed by these, giving them better chance at furr-ever homes. Website says 26,000+.

Somewhat relieved to see I'm not only one posting during Moanday daytime. Mods may decide to revoke our Moanday privs, but sure hope they don't. Some Moandays they get used, approaching heavily.
Comment actually for prof_vampire, micromedics & others medically oriented. Last Fri or so, we rcvd 2 mis-directed faxes from medical establishments, intended for other medical establishments. The phone # we had for our fax line until recently having it disconnected, was another no-longer-active medical establishment listed in an old fax directory before it was assigned to us.
First of these 2 was for a procedure scheduled for Oct 15, shoulda taken place already. 2d was for one to be this Wed 11-14 at 1PM. Of Course our landline went down after we rcvd these, so fax fwding wouldna work. Got an e-drs for the coming appt; the relevant dept at relevant hosp should have it by now. Just rang up the patient having the procedure & left quickie phone msg. Boy won't he be confusticated!
