A three legged cat is fine.  I've had one and she got around just fine.  Two legged; that's what pawstands are for.  I've got to draw the line at diapers though.  I rarely have time enough to change my own, nevermind the cat's.

We can only hope that there's someone out there willing and able to give Virginia a forever home. I'm happy that she's so loved at the shelter, but she deserves a home of her own.

Wow. I'm not really a cat person (have always preferred dogs, despite the headaches), but this article stirred me, emotionally.

Nice post, subby.

Well said Bathia.  My sentiments exactly.  I do hope her new humans will be able to supply more kittens for her to nurture.

I'd love to, but I neither live in Texas nor are we allowed to have pets at our apartment complex. I'll just love and send good vibes to Virginia from afar.

And just in case you didn't already know it, all pets are welcome on Caturday. :-)

Lurleen the cat nursing orphaned week-old pit bull at Cleveland animal shelter, committed first on reddit them on imgur by davidmcelroy13.
Headline from last Caturday weekend: Ottawa residents are deporting unwanted squirrels to Quebec, where they will starve because they don't know the French word for acorn
Tried to comment on  tale of Rottweiler saving chihuahua from being a coyote's lunch, in the Open section.  Musta been deemed inappropriate somehow, tho don't really understand why.
#8 HarmonyFestival is in full cry; we needed to go yesterday to Take Sound, this AM to Take More Sound, tomorrow afternoon to Move Sound to Engineering Hall where Campers' Show'll Be, then Saturday for goodly part of day. Concluding show with sponsoring chori (mine, Plumbicon;s & Southern Gateway the Big Green Contest Machine), performances by Campers' Chori (young men & young women), plus any Campers' QTs they rustle together if deemed adequate. This'll all be at brand spanking new Talawanda HS south of Oxford. Plumbicon's pleased, as their construction & tech gear purchases are hugely better than Mason's, which was done by untrained monkeys.  Pffffphft!

Greetings All... TGIC !.. been waiting for this.. home at last !    I will be hiding this weekend..  from those who want me to do things... everything here is a mess, and will get unmessed this weekend.. I will answer the cell phone, but will say that I am out of town or something.... very sure that both trash cans will be filled with grass clippings.. did weed and feed about a month ago.. the weeds went... and apparently the feed portion just kicked in.. grass is growing an inch a day, and that is not an estimate..... Fred is slightly ticked that he can't find the tennis ball in the grass.. has really been in play mode lately.. great to see that..

Issues with both computer & trying to post here.  Just tried to put one up, said whatever equiv of Accepted is, but it went Off Yonder into the ozone.
Ginger's typing too, putting in long strings of numbers (Normal Catlike Typing. PawSense is NOT sounding off).
Mutts this AM:  Mooch's Dear Diary.  No doubt about it -- water drunk from the faucet just tastes better.
Unsure When or If salsa of last Caturday will ever be possible.  Know I missed at least 10 pgs in the midst, not willing/able to find/make/take time anytime soon.  But that too is why there are The Farkives --
I weary, may be trying to overdo to get caught up. Could use  some zzzzz time, as Plumbicon did when we got home from Oxford midday & had lunch.
Speaking of which, as I didn't last Caturday: the wedding&reception last Sun at Lodge left this great big pan of mac&chs, I maya said.  Took all Mon AM to divvy it up. Didn't count, but methinx there could be at least 20 containers & ziplock sandwich bags full.  All now friz.  Pan left in warmer overnight.

Hello everybodeee!

 ^-^

Raven's buddy 'John' from the group home went out and got a mewbie of his own.
Ructions and ranting...he went the 'forgiveness rather than permission' route. Anyway, little Casper (so named because she appears, flits and then vanishes) is a dilute tortie...silvery-grey with a bit of pink frosting on her face. Very sweet...but a couple weeks too young to leave mom...her eyes are just starting to turn color.

I got the house a rather nice cat tree...it's hard to 're-direct' behavior if there's nothing to re-direct it towards. I'm also campaigning very hard for not de-clawing...offered to make the 'Soft Paws' route one of MY tasks.

John and Casper seem to have bonded well...but he's a bit disappointed that Casper and Raven weren't instant BFFs. I keep trying to reassure him that they will sort things out...just it's going to take a little time. The omens are favorable...nothing worse than hissing on first meeting, and there's been at least one 'conversation'/staring contest sans any rude noises.

~*~*~*~*

I'm taking Riktor to the vet tomorrow. He's gotten awfully thin. He turned 11 this month, so he's into 'possible bad kidney territory'. I hope not...I've tried to feed them so as not to screw up their kidneys.
Wish us luck...I love that little cat so much...

Sugarbear Update:
Okay, I got my boy home last Monday. He had his operation Friday and spent the weekend recuperating at Mountain Vista Animal Hospital. He had to have his leg amputated because it was cancerous. The tumor was just in too deep and that was the only possible treatment. But I wasn't aware of how much leg the vets were going to amputate. I was planning on asking some model builders I knew with access to a 3D printer if they could build Sugarbear a prosthetic leg. But after I got to Mountain Vista and they brought Sugarbear out to me I knew that wouldn't be possible. There wasn't anything left to attach a prosthesis to:
Maybe NSFW http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg235/Themightyhaggis/DSCF0614-Sma l l.jpg
I have to be honest and say that I'm still kind of in shock.
We brought him home that same Monday. For the first couple of nights he stayed in his kitty bed, obviously in a little pain and feeling more than a little grumpy: Again Maybe NSFW  http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg235/Themightyhaggis/DSCF0619-Sma l l.jpg
The other cat, Zooty (named after a Babylon 5 character) took awhile to get used to Sugarbear's appearance. A couple of times it got nasty, but that's all smoothed out now I hope. Last night there was a breakthrough of sorts in that Sugarbear wanted up into my bed. To make it easier on him, I got rid of the metal frame and sat the boxframe square on the floor. I then took a milk crate I was using to hold small parts and a plank to build an incline at the foot of the bed so he would have an easier time getting in and out of bed.
Sugarbear insisted though in jumping up into bed with only the one back leg, although Zooty seems to like the incline as his new fort.
Sugarbear has another appointment tomorrow. He looks like he's going to make it.
I would like to take this moment to thank a particular mystery Farker for making Sugarbear's operation possible by donating a fairly substantial amount to his veterinary tab. Without that one wonderful person, I probably would've had to put my furry baby to sleep.
Currently I owe Mountain Vista $408. After tomorrow, the bill should be about $425 (MVAH is giving me a discount). I'm afraid that I am still in need of help.
Mountain Vista Animal Hospital is still taking donations for Sugarbear. The account number is #17261. They don't have PayPal, but they are taking donations over the phone.  All donations will go directly to Mountain Vista and none to me.
Mountain Vista Animal Hospital is located at 4675 East Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV 89121. The telephone number is 702-458-8808 and the Fax is 702-458-8796. Mountain Vista Animal Hospital's website is www.mvahvetlv.com (I'm still job hunting, but the only serious offer I've gotten is asbestos removal at $3.00 an hour).
Well, that's it for this week. I want to thank everybody for helping, especially that one wonderful person. If it weren't for you guys, well, I'm seeing a side of the human race I've never seen before and it's beautiful. Thank you all.

You can say that again. I almost lost my left leg earlier this year due to an infection and every time I take my socks off, I expect my toes to fall off. But Sugarbear, geez what a cat!

We brought him home that same Monday. For the first couple of nights he stayed in his kitty bed, obviously in a little pain and feeling more than a little grumpy: Again Maybe NSFW  http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg235/Themightyhaggis/DSCF0619-Sma l l.jpg
The other cat, Zooty (named after a Babylon 5 character) took awhile to get used to Sugarbear's appearance. A couple of times it got nasty, but that's all smoothed out now I hope. Last night there was a breakthrough of sorts in that Sugarbear wanted up into my bed. To make it easier on him, I got rid of the metal frame and sat the boxframe square on the floor. I then took a milk crate I was using to hold small parts and a plank to build an incline at the foot of the bed so he would have an easier time getting in and out of bed.
Sugarbear insisted though in jumping up into bed with only the one back leg, although Zooty seems to like the incline as his new fort.
Sugarbear has another appointment tomorrow. He looks like he's going to make it.
I would like to take this moment to thank a particular mystery Farker for making Sugarbear's operation possible by donating a fairly substantial amount to his veterinary tab. Without that one wonderful person, I probably would've had to put my furry baby to sleep.
Currently I owe Mountain Vista $408. After tomorrow, the bill should be about $425 (MVAH is giving me a discount). I'm afraid that I am still in need of help.
Mountain Vista Animal Hospital is still taking donations for Sugarbear. The account number is #17261. They don't have PayPal, but they are taking donations over the phone.  All donations will go directly to Mountain Vista and none to me.
Mountain Vista Animal Hospital is located at 4675 East Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV 89121. The telephone number is 702-458-8808 and the Fax is 702-458-8796. Mountain Vista Animal Hospital's website is www.mvahvetlv.com (I'm still job hunting, but the only serious offer I've gotten is asbestos removal at $3.00 an hour).
Well, that's it for this week. I want to thank everybody for helping, especially that one wonderful person. If it weren't for you guys, well, I'm seeing a side of the human race I've never seen before and it's beautiful. Thank you all.


Glad Sugarbear is doing so well. I know just how you feel. My boy Boots nearly died a month ago from having a blocked bladder. If it weren't for one of my daughter's friends and my MiL I would have had to put him down as well. I still owe my daughter's friend 400 dollars, to be paid back in full July 11 when I get my first full pay from my new job that i'm starting tomorrow.

syzygy whizz: Hello everybodeee!

 ^-^
='.'=

Raven's buddy 'John' from the group home went out and got a mewbie of his own.
Ructions and ranting...he went the 'forgiveness rather than permission' route. Anyway, little Casper (so named because she appears, flits and then vanishes) is a dilute tortie...silvery-grey with a bit of pink frosting on her face. Very sweet...but a couple weeks too young to leave mom...her eyes are just starting to turn color.

I got the house a rather nice cat tree...it's hard to 're-direct' behavior if there's nothing to re-direct it towards. I'm also campaigning very hard for not de-clawing...offered to make the 'Soft Paws' route one of MY tasks.

John and Casper seem to have bonded well...but he's a bit disappointed that Casper and Raven weren't instant BFFs. I keep trying to reassure him that they will sort things out...just it's going to take a little time. The omens are favorable...nothing worse than hissing on first meeting, and there's been at least one 'conversation'/staring contest sans any rude noises.

~*~*~*~*

I'm taking Riktor to the vet tomorrow. He's gotten awfully thin. He turned 11 this month, so he's into 'possible bad kidney territory'. I hope not...I've tried to feed them so as not to screw up their kidneys.
Wish us luck...I love that little cat so much...


Good luck with Ricktor...keeping fingers and paws crossed for a non-eventful vet visit!! :D

syzygy whizz: Thanks, John Buck...

Possibly Stupid Question:

OK, so all four of the Oreo-Ninja Clowder got their Revolution application...
then Wimsey Whyte-Cat goes and 'helps' my neighbor fix a particularly greasy car.

If I give him a bath will he need another application?

/ That stuff ain't cheap!


You should be able to give them a bath as soon as 2 hours after you apply it, as the active ingredient of Revolution gets absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin.  Once the goo is completely dried, its job is done.  The medicine then stays inside the cat's system for a month or whatever it is.

Silly Wimsey.  Doesn't he know what coveralls are for?

Have fun at bafftime.  :)

What she said!  Perhaps he just switched to low-fat gophers and it's as simple as that.  Worrying about one's furkids can really stress one out though.  Hugs to you.

Good Meowning!I have had my morning lovins from Eli. He is now outside enjoying his natural litterbox. I have found that he will come back about an hour later for noms, and a snooze. By that time the mailman has come and gone. :)

Coelacanthso happy to see you kitteh is doing so well. As soon as the icision heals he will be jumping and running...cats are good that way! And Btw..the vets did a great job. Very clean surgical site. They do good work there! I wonder if they would let you work some of your debt off? Clean cages, walk pooches etc? Worth a thought.

Little Casper is already in residence at the group home...has been for about 3 weeks now. Even though too young to leave Mum, she's probably in a better environment now than she would have been. Somebody trying to sell kittens when they're still babies...grrrrrr

She's getting better care (and LOTS of luvs), and I sprang for some KMR. Told John where to get the next batch, and that she'd probably need it for a few weeks.
She's active, playful, curious, affectionate...seems happy, but she may never learn to walk.
Except when she's playing, her feet do not hit the floor. John's 'training' her to ride on his shoulder.

Baby Kittehs are finally out of my bedroom and now in the bathroom.  They started climbing out of the box they were in and getting stuck under the bed, so time for them to move to another room so the wife and I can finally get some sleep.  They'll be 4 weeks old on Sunday, and have now learned that they can all play with each other.  So we have now reached the cute and adorably mobile stage.  Mom is beginning to look a little haggard, but I'm guessing that is normal.  Anyway, Happy Caturday everyone, and enjoy the antics of the Italian / Asian fusion babies.

Papaya is a little on the aggressive side right now, so only I can handle him.  Not sure if it's just growing pains, or if he's ticked off at us, but that tail of his brings serious pain when he whips you with it.  But the turd loves his greens and especially loves blueberries, just like the beardies do.

captain feedback: Sickapie: *stumbles in*

ohai everybuddee.  Happee Caturday.

So glad that Sugarbear made it through surgery and is going to be ok.

I'm in a funkee.  Just my depression kicking in.  Money issues.  Little Pie's problems.  Everything coming to a head.  But, as long as I continue taking my happee pills, I'll be ok I guess.

ME THREE


Me four. I've been trying to save up to refill my prescription but the last time I had enough cash I got a flat tire and had to buy a new tire instead. Trying again to save and hanging in there until I can take the meds again.

and a couple of cats:

Catmandu, check with your pharmacy, some drug companies have programs for people who can't afford their meds. No sense being miserable if you know of a med that works for you. ((hug)).

This one doesn't. They used to but discontinued the program for this particular med (my MD can't get enough to provide me with samples either).

Well, that sort of stinks. And I am guessing there isn't a generic? onion on the belt moment Meds cost entirely too much these days! also get off my lawn! Or stop parking your car in front of my house for days on end. Use your driveway and um..garage??? New peeps across the street. Elderly Mom/Pop and daughter/hubby/kid. Supposed to be a single family dwelling...I can't imagine that they even have room to turn around with that many people in the house!

Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy: Baby Kittehs are finally out of my bedroom and now in the bathroom.  They started climbing out of the box they were in and getting stuck under the bed, so time for them to move to another room so the wife and I can finally get some sleep.  They'll be 4 weeks old on Sunday, and have now learned that they can all play with each other.  So we have now reached the cute and adorably mobile stage.  Mom is beginning to look a little haggard, but I'm guessing that is normal.  Anyway, Happy Caturday everyone, and enjoy the antics of the Italian / Asian fusion babies.

Wow. You would have hated the neighborhood I grew up in. My family had my grandparents,my parents, me and my sister and the dog and only 1 bathroom. At least 4 houses on the street had 4 or more kids , again with only 1 bathroom. And once all the kids in the neighborhood learned how to drive and bought cars parking was first come first serve after we filled up the driveways. We didn't block anyone's driveway but we did get real good at learning to backout of a driveway without hitting anything and excellent at parallel parking.

I know that once an Rx goes generic, my Dr. can't give out samples.  Now "can't" as in ins. won't let her or "can't" as in won't, I'm not sure.  Either way, it sux, because if I run out before Mr. Pie get paid, then I have to wait.  So, I'm sort of in the same boat as Catmandu.

I was thinking the same thing.  After all that activity and taking care of kittens, if you send her to someone's house to sit around and do nothing, she probably won't enjoy herself.

gremlin1 we live in a very densly populated area, and I am on a super mainstreet. In the Winter we haz parking bans etc...I think they filled the garage with leftover crud, so no room for cars. Hopefully they will take advantage of the city wide garage sale..Downsizing is a biatch.

Sugarbear Update:
Okay, I got my boy home last Monday. He had his operation Friday and spent the weekend recuperating at Mountain Vista Animal Hospital. He had to have his leg amputated because it was cancerous. The tumor was just in too deep and that was the only possible treatment. But I wasn't aware of how much leg the vets were going to amputate. I was planning on asking some model builders I knew with access to a 3D printer if they could build Sugarbear a prosthetic leg. But after I got to Mountain Vista and they brought Sugarbear out to me I knew that wouldn't be possible. There wasn't anything left to attach a prosthesis to:
Maybe NSFW http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg235/Themightyhaggis/DSCF0614-Sma l l.jpg
I have to be honest and say that I'm still kind of in shock.
We brought him home that same Monday. For the first couple of nights he stayed in his kitty bed, obviously in a little pain and feeling more than a little grumpy: Again Maybe NSFW  http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg235/Themightyhaggis/DSCF0619-Sma l l.jpg
The other cat, Zooty (named after a Babylon 5 character) took awhile to get used to Sugarbear's appearance. A couple of times it got nasty, but that's all smoothed out now I hope. Last night there was a breakthrough of sorts in that Sugarbear wanted up into my bed. To make it easier on him, I got rid of the metal frame and sat the boxframe square on the floor. I then took a milk crate I was using to hold small parts and a plank to build an incline at the foot of the bed so he would have an easier time getting in and out of bed.
Sugarbear insisted though in jumping up into bed with only the one back leg, although Zooty seems to like the incline as his new fort.
Sugarbear has another appointment tomorrow. He looks like he's going to make it.
I would like to take this moment to thank a particular mystery Farker for making Sugarbear's operation possible by donating a fairly substantial amount to his veterinary ta ...


I know its a big shock but he'll actually heal better and move around better without the entire limb. The way they're bodies are, stumps can be more of a hindrance than a help, especially if they weren't born with the stump.

Hoping Sugarbear is up and running soon and hope to make a donation next Caturday :)
