Hugs and good memories to you and yours. It's so nice of you to post here to remember her.What's the funniest or sweetest Sarah story you have to tell us?
Real Women Drink Akvavit: Came across that pic and it reminded me - anyone seen/heard from Cretinbob or Domari lately? I imagine they're quite busy with kitten season and all, but I was just curious if they'd been around and I'd just missed it or ???
John Buck 41: OlderGuy: John Buck 41: gremlin1: it's started raining and the temp has dropped to a bearable 70Morning all[grmmmie.smugmug.com image 355x450]Already 80 here at 9am :)86 here, going to 94.. TStorms this afternoon.. need to get all the grass cut before that happens...Day 8 of 9 days off. My lawn needs it too, but we had a quick downpour late last night and even w/o that, my lawn doesn't dry out til late afternoon because of morning dew and so much of it being in the shade. Plus, the taller the grass gets the longer it takes to dry out. Plus I DON'T WANT TO DO CHORES WHILE ON VACATION!And some cats to make up for my whining[cdn.attackofthecute.com image 635x602][www.mycatwearsclothes.com image 420x242][www.ska-studios.com image 450x403]
lilyspad: sherpa18: Like I had a freaking choice? :o) Aww...poor Dragon! *snerk* Dragons must need lots of fuel for their FIRE!!!! :D
lilyspad: maynerdkitty: And some entertainment for the kitties.LinkThe biddies came in the mail on Wendsday morning, one did not survive the trip but the rest are looking really healthy and strong. My son identified the free exotic breed as a blue chochin. A large breed with feathers all the way down its legs, they will cover its feet when it is grown. I have named it Frodo.[fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net image 850x637]Don't they tell you what they are sending??? Or is it supposed to be a surprise?
lilyspad: [i.imgur.com image 500x500]I wish I could teach Lily to do "selfies"...that would be interesting! :D
laulaja: Still fail to find Orange, must be Creatively Filed.
lilyspad: [i.imgur.com image 500x381]OMG! This makes me "ouch". Kudos to dancers....
laulaja: Was 99.4% certain had saved Orange You Glad It's Caturday, but fail to find. Mayhap someone'll post it so I may Save It Again. Musta called it something outre & illogical --
quantum_jellyroll: sherpa18: Vista? *shudder* To be honest, I never had that first problem with Vista.
predle: I have to admit that was my experience with Vista too - it seemed okay to me.
professional_vampire: Evening, all. Good to see everyone. I'm tired this evening - working alone all day with a mild sunburn while fighting the results of the bread bowl chili I had for dinner yesterday will do that to you./Warning, threadjack...Mr. p_v is going to be hiking to the summit of Mt. Washington in NH on August 18th to raise money for a group called Hike for Mental Health. This is a local organization that asks hikers to get sponsors for their hikes. 80% of the money raised goes to fund mental health research, the other 20% goes to maintain hiking trails. I'm sharing the link to his fundraising page on Facebook if anyone would like to donate any amount, no matter how small (or large). If you don't do Facebook but still want to donate, EIP and I'll get you the info on how to do so. Thanks./End threadjack. We now return you to your regularly scheduled Caturday
quantum_jellyroll: yobbery:Try to disguise it...I bet they'll never suspect.[www.smugmug.com image 457x342]Do they make those for Nikons?
lethological_lassie: Real Women Drink Akvavit: [www.signs-unique.co.uk image 500x500]Great pic!And please add my condolences on the passing of your beloved Grandmother. Sounded like one helluva woman and I'm glad that you got to spend so much time with her. She'd be proud of the way you're handling her passing-- no one who loves you wants you to suffer-- your humor is a great coping mechanism. :)
quantum_jellyroll: Anesthesia and painkillersdon't work very well on me. Redheads tend to have that problem. I'll take a painful incision over being ashes scattered on amountain in Alaska.
lethological_lassie: Happy Birthday to the New Princelet![i29.photobucket.com image 800x690]
quantum_jellyroll: yobbery:There's a cheesy calibration tool included with 7 (Start -> control panel -> display -> calibrate color) or you can google for an online calibration site. One of these can at least get your display in the ballpark.I'm looking for a good one myself.I did some horse-trading to get my first one years ago. It worked fine with Vista,The software absolutely refuses to install, it says there are known incompatibilitiesand there is no software upgrade.Here are the calibrators I'm considering.Either the Pro or Express models.
lilyspad: [i.imgur.com image 640x415]Okay, I am OFFICIALLY done with this heat! Holy cow! It's 98 right now...again. Supposed to be in the upper 90's for another week. I'm gonna snap, I tell ya!!!! If you guize read about some crazy middle-aged woman running naked through the neighbors sprinklers while drinking beer, start collecting bail money! :D
quantum_jellyroll: sherpa18:quantum_jellyroll: ...calibration tool ... It worked fine with Vista...Vista?[i415.photobucket.com image 519x640]*shudder*To be honest, I never had that first problem with Vista.Everything worked, everything ran, no surprises, no bluescreens.I couldn't understand what all the negative press was about.It was pretty stable and seemed bulletproof for me.

sherpa18: akimbotoo: sherpa18: Sciatic pain (to quote our beloved Alien) blows dead goats. Suffered with it for many years, until I fell down a flight of wooden stairs and landed on a slate floor, which somehow cured the whole problem. Best wishes that hubby feels better soon.You are not the first I have heard this from. A Chiro friend of mine had a lovely little old lady patient who fell into the bath tub she was cleaning and never again had sciatic pain.Yeah, I know we have discussed this on Caturday before, it just still fascinates me that the first thing a doctor will recommend is a series of stretching exercises. Hey doc, I can barely stand without screaming, and you want me to do WHAT with my leg?!? [i415.photobucket.com image 275x142]

akimbotoo: lilyspad: You're twisted, I like that!!! Hahaha!!!We had old friends visit us earlier this week...I told them the story about when I had the metal plate & screws removed from my ankle after my fracture adventure. I was disappointed that the surgeon wouldn't let me watch the operation.
akimbotoo: I have been able to keep his back stable for 30 years, but when our truck slid on black ice and rolled 1 1/4 times last November it moved enough to pinch the nerve when he was suspended sideways by his seat belt. Unfortunately Chiropractic & massage therapy wasn't enough, but he went to the best Neurosurgeon around. No more sciatic pain. Yay! I just got a nasty whiplash and our parrot only had a little scrape by his eye. All in all, we are all very lucky.
lilyspad: Sherpa...you peeked in earlier! Where are you?? Still having computer problems??? :D
micromedic: Hi EVERYBUDDY!! I have been lurking. Sigh. It's been a rough few month, but Mr. and I will get through. I'm here! : ) Sending and receiving hugs and smoochy kisses!

tigerose: Hello! I could not find Eli for a while today. And no one remembered if he was in or out. Turns out he was in the attic! Good thing today was not so hot as it haz been! Geez I think that cat needs a locator app
Real Women Drink Akvavit: Mrs CDK: Been busy this weekend but wanted to pop in to say hi...
John Buck 41: Jazzy, never far away from either of us. Here making sure Mrs. Bucks chair doesn't blow off the dock.[farm4.staticflickr.com image 500x375]She didn't want to wait on shore while Mom was out in the kayak.[farm8.staticflickr.com image 500x375]
The Ice Queen: OlderGuy: Greetings All... TGIC !.... Just got home from an AC repair.... 7 hours worth.... replaced the outdoor unit.. compressor burnt on the old one, lots of details to be done first.... he has cooling now... was 97 out there.... think I sweated 10 pounds.... Neat video.. great fireman.. those guys are awesome ! Hope we have a sad- free weekend.. last weekend was rough.. my condolences to those who lost buddies...Can't guarantee sad free but I can guarantee grace free. Cosmo tripped me when I got home so I'm all black and blue.The Evil Bastid Kitteh[i1210.photobucket.com image 850x637]See the evil look, he's an evil bastid
Real Women Drink Akvavit: I hate to even say it, cuz I don't want to be the Caturday bummer, but I know some of you guys pay attention and will wonder. My Grandma died Tuesday morning at 11:25. She couldn't talk or move, but she could hear us and would make faces or noises to respond a bit, so we made sure at least one of us was with her at all times, so she wouldn't be alone and scared. I had just finished my turn for a 2 hour nap and went to go sit with her so my mom could get a nap. I sat next to her, told her I loved her for probably the eleventybillionth time while I was sitting there holding her hand, she responded a little bit, took a few more breaths and died.Please do not get bummed out or think "omg! what do I say?" (like I do) or hesitate to have fun and raise the basement! I like fun, I am fine, will be fine and we knew this was coming. We are sad and a bit lost, but the last few years were hard, the last couple weeks nightmarish. She actually told me about a week before she died "I'd leave but you won't let me go". Mom and I both told her that when she wanted to go, it was OK, that we'd be sad, but we'd understand and we'd be OK. We are OK for the most part, just not really sure what to do with ourselves and very sad, but at the same time we are happy that her suffering is over. Mom is going on her scheduled vacation Sunday still, because she needs it badly, and we'll figure out who is going to take her and grandpa's ashes back to Norway when we get them back. So, on with life, best we can.Thank you to my Caturday family and all the other Farkers who have given me tons of support, lots of hugs and ear skritches for teh kittehs and pics of things to make me smile. My grandma loved you guize too, even if she didn't understand most of it. lol!Now, on wit teh kritter pics![data.whicdn.com image 500x768]
yobbery: Each and every one of them are unique, There will never be another Alice, just like there will never be another Sarah. We just need to be thankful that we were gifted with their friendship and keep in mind there are more unique personalities waiting to be discovered.
spinach gunk: yobbery: It doesn't seem like Sarah has been gone a year already. Yet we lost Alice last July right before you lost Sarah, and that seems like so long ago.Time perception is strange.So true... I remember when you lost Alice! It seems like so long ago now. Sigh.Everything else in life? Faster every day! Quit trying to keep up a long time ago. :-SAlice was such a lovely girl. Many cats have a way of looking eeevil sometimes, but in every photo of Alice I've ever seen, she's got such a calm, kind look on her face, I can't believe she ever did anything mean or naughty ever! All the best to her, wherever she may be.*Hugs*
laulaja: spinach gunk, tnx for bringing Sarah back to mind. Think you said she was such a good girl.
Salem Witch: Hugs
tigerose: Amazing how our furry little friends steal into our hearts. I am sure that Sarah enjoyed her time with you immensely. And you know, when you hear that faint toe nail clck, or catch a glimpse of fur..she is checking on you, reminding you to smile, and love again.
ThePuceGuardian: ... Dad's been discharged following brain surgery, and is staying with relatives who live handy to the hospital. There is still no telling what the future holds. The biopsy is still not back yet.Wait and see, wait and see. It's like watching the dealer turn over the cards, not knowing if an ace is coming or a Joker. For now, the most stressful part is past. I'm returning home to catch my breath while I can.
predle: A not so happy anniversary here. It has been one year....
spinach gunk: It was one year ago today that little Sarah left us....
Salem Witch: [donotenterdragonsalleyunlessyouhave...pic]
yobbery: This one makes me chuckle. It's not often he has a derpy look on his face.
yobbery: Biscuit wants to know what's going on here...[www.smugmug.com image 600x450]
spinach gunk: I know it's weird, but I thought you guys would get a kick out of it. :)

OlderGuy: Do believe that,s a doggie accomplice.....
yobbery: Spinnyr: Here's a link (I hope) to what I'm considering...The whole back yard is surrounded by that brick wall/fence.Anyone have experience with these 'containment' systems? Comments? Suggestions?http://www.catfencein.com/I wouldn't recommend it. A determined feline would find a way around that in no time.Your wall doesn't look tall enough anyway. They could probably jump over that without touching it.However, I do like what you've done with your current catio!

neurofunkin: Well that was easy. I'm going to meet a lady that breeds Savannah cats who happens to live about 2 miles from me. She has kittens from an F6 generation available. They are expensive though. Still not sure about this, but I get to meet some Savannah kitties!/I feel like I'm cheating, I work at a shelter and I'm now going to a breeder to inquire about purchasing a cat.
OlderGuy: John Buck 41: gremlin1: it's started raining and the temp has dropped to a bearable 70Already 80 here at 9am :)86 here, going to 94.. TStorms this afternoon.
yobbery: He looks great!
tigerose: He does look good!
lilyspad: I agree...and he looks great!!! You GO Dragon!!! ♥
dopekitty74: People who hate on poor folks for having animals are douchebags. We may not always have the money to buy the most expensive toys/food etc... but we love our furbabies as much, if not sometimes more, because for some of us, the animal is the only true friend we have.
sherpa18: lilyspad: sherpa18: Like I had a freaking choice? :o) Aww...poor Dragon! *snerk* Dragons must need lots of fuel for their FIRE!!!! :DTruthfully, at this point in time, I really don't give a flying f*ck anymore what time he gets me up - he is eating really well, has not vomited his food/meds in weeks, and has actually started playing again - he has been having a blast with the toys that Mr. & Mrs. CDK sent him for his birfday (and ate an entire bag of treats) ... and while I have not been able to get him on a scale, he definitely feels heavier when I pick him up - see for yourself....[i415.photobucket.com image 640x531]

Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: Sadly the poor thing didn't survive. =(In a sad update to a story that touched many thousands of readers and viewers, the kitten rescued and revived following a residential fire in Fresno, CA on June 8 died at an emergency vet afterward.
