RadicalEd: John Buck 41: RadicalEd: Still at #3!I just went to make coffee and realized how gross my coffee maker is. I need a new one, considering this Black & Decker one is over 5 years old... I'd love to get something that could possibly use the k-cups for some variety, but that I could make my own coffee as well... Not sure if something like that exists?Yes. Buy a regular Kuerig but instead of pre-filled K-cups you can buy refillable cups and put whatever coffee in them you want.Excellent, that's exactly what I want. But, urk, they start between $80 and $100?? Ouchies. Guess I'll be cleaning my current coffee maker and waiting it out till I have some income again.

domari: akimbotoo: ferfer72: Ok. So if I wear gloves, I can put them in the bath tub in my guest bathroom. I can set them up with a litter box and food in there (It's a big tub). Then what? I'm not quite sure I'm understanding the advice.Sweetie, they will get out of that bath tub pretty quickly!We keep feral kittens in huge cages where they have plenty of room for food, water, litter pan and a cat carrier. This way they get used to seeing us all the time, and they can't hide somewhere that we can't find them. We also put a cat carrier in there with the door propped open with a small stick or bungy cord. This way they have someplace to hide when we open the cage door to clean it out. I shut the carrier door with the kittens in it so they can't escape the cage and run away. When it's time to go to the vet it makes it easier to have the carrier in the cage and herd the kittens into it instead of having to grab them one by one.
born_yesterday: "Mr. Fluffy"... The bad news was, he was FIV positive.
vudutek: We've have an FIV+ stray we took in almost 7 years ago. Vet suggested to put him down on first visit. Sadly, the vet passed from cancer last year, Boobus is still going strong.
born_yesterday: I realize I'm late to the thread, but one of the kitten cams I watch got me thinking about my last cat, Mr. Fluffy.I took Mr. Fluffy in off the streets of Baltimore. More accurately, he accepted the terms of the agreement and volunteered. Seriously. He was the biggest stray i had ever seen (20 lbs as it turns out), and would sit on my porch with the others, waiting for noms. But Mr. Fluffy never meowed or begged or stroked my leg; he just looked at me calmly, waiting. One day, when I decided I was willing to devote myself to a cat, I saw him outside, and I said to him, "OK, here's the deal: I'll give you all the food you could want, all the love that you want, and medical attention, but you can't go outside anymore." I opened the apartment door and asked, "So what do you say?". He got up and walked in and followed me into my apartment.I took him to the vet right away. As it turns out, he was a he (he had been neutered, probably by one of the volunteer cat trappers in Baltimore), but I refused to change his name, hence the awkward moniker "Mr. Fluffy". The bad news was, he was FIV positive. He wasn't expected to last long. But, we made a deal, and I was sticking to it. Throughout his life, I had to deal will numerous traumas. Like the stomatitis. Like having to remove all the teeth behind his canines. And the glaucoma. And, eventually, the ear infection that destroyed his balance. That's when I eventually had to let him go, when I knew life was painful for him. He survived through two cross-country moves, four apartments, and seven years.I still won't take in another cat. I can't yet, and he passed 5 years ago. He was too much. He had so much personality. I can't take in another cat and compare them to him; it wouldn't be fair. He used to sit at the window, watching his old haunt, and would "murr" and nod hello when I walked in (to get attentions). He would play cat and mouse with me, getting chased and chasing me, until the day I dove ...

mafiageek1980: OMG, I just thought of something creeepy: For those of you that have been watching "Bates Motel", Juno is the name of the Dog that gets ran over...and that Norman stuffs!But Juno on here is TOO beautiful to let that happen to her!

Sadly, the vet passed from cancer last year, Boobus is still going strong.For the life of me, I can not understand this mentality. Most FIV+ cats are carriers, and will never suffer any symptoms. Oreo was also positive, and while my vet did not suggest putting him down, she did caution us about letting him interact with our other 3. They all got along for many years until Oreo passed of old age at 23 - and none of the others were ever affected.Now, where were we?[i415.photobucket.com image 203x324]
gremlin1: lilyspad: [i.imgur.com image 226x640][i877.photobucket.com image 226x640]I just had to look up Corgi's for their training and learning rates.Training: Cardigan Welsh Corgi puppies are good listeners and are very attentive, making their training and upbringing easy. They are not difficult to train because of their high intelligence and quick learning ability. They should be socialized early on to avoid confrontation and suspiciousness with friendly animals and humans.Special Needs: Attention, exercise, a job or activity, socialization and training.Learning Rate: Very High. Obedience - High. Problem Solving - High.

tigerose: I know, I know...I want a window seat. Close to Sherpa18, and upwind of Quantum_Jellyroll because, you know, it is the bus to hell after all...and something has to give it gas...:) Other than that, as long as you share the bottle, we're good!
tigerose: The thing about FeLk positive, is that it simply indicates that anti-bodies have been built in response to exposure. Some cats will never show symptoms and live to a ripe old age. Some however do not, as was the case with my brother's cat. She tested positive, and was gone not long after. He never got over losing her.

predle: sherpa18: What Juno probably thinks about this whole contest deal...I will not even pretend to know what's actually going on in that little brain, but she does like it when I am at the computer and she can climb on my shoulder and drape herself over me, so in the way I think she's pretty happy about the whole thing.

ferfer72: tigerose and vudutekI don't think you understand the severity of the situation. I had to wear gloves to catch them. They are biters, not lovers. I can't safely handle them without getting hurt.
