Hankies at the ready.


I look for you every morning,
Caught between hope and dispair

Are you still there?
Or have you passed,

Peacefully in the night,
Relieving me
Of that terrible right.

When will it be your time.
To leave me?
Shall I let you be?


The very though makes me recoil,

Why should I be the one!

To shuffle you off
This mortal coil?

If I could keep you pain free,
I believe I can see,

Selfishly keeping you with me.

When you look at me with pleading eye,
I cannot tell,
If you wish to die.

Or mearly trying to stay by my side,
Hoping Nature will decide.

I pray that at the end of life,
Your passing is without strife.

If I need to help you complete
The task,

I have but one thing to ask.

Remember that I love you true,
This is the kindest thing I may do.

And as I hold you in my arm,
Keeping your spirit ever from harm.

Know that I, with you was blest.
You bring out in me, the very best.

Sleep softly now my little one,
Now that the deed is done.

In my heart you will always dwell,
I will remember a life lived well.

Now will my heart break,
Now will my arms ache.

Until some other day,
Another comes to stay.

Thoughts from you,
From the Other Side,

Bid me open my arms

I used tube sock...cut a hole for the head and two for the front legs one for the tail  leaves the business end ready for action and allows the cat to clean and curl up.

if it becomes soiled it can be washed or discarded as you choose

Last Saturday we had to put our beloved Sasha down.  She was 19 years old and suffering from sinus cancer.  She has traveled more than most people, from PA to NC to OK to Okinawa to TX to NC again.  The decision was agonizing for us and my wife actually caught flak from Facebook knuckleheads.  In response she wrote and posted this on Facebook.  I think it sums up everything:

It's such an easy thing to sit back and judge, and believe me...I have done my fair share of it too. However, my Mom used to always say that we need to walk a mile in someone else's shoes to really understand them. I've surely lived long enough to realize how true that is. Every day people make choices and decisions that we just don't understand...because we haven't walked that mile in their shoes. ... Let me tell you friends, euthanasia is a hell of a thing ...it really is. To be given the ability, the privilege and the responsibility to end the suffering of a loved one...it's a hell of a thing. However, unless you have looked into the eyes of a beloved pet, a pet that has been your friend and companion for more years than most of the people you know, has traveled with you through countries and states, heart ache, pain and loss, and when your children have taken wing, and found their own paths, this dear friend spent as much time in your child's room, waiting for their return, as you have ...and you have had to try to decide if the quality of their life is gone...so completely gone that the most humane thing you can do is to have them "put down". Unless you have prayed more times than you can count, that you will just wake up one morning and find them...sleeping that endless sleep that will carry them peacefully on to their next life. Unless you have gotten up one morning, after so many mornings of wondering...if today is the day, and you think..."yes, I think this is it...I think it's time." Unless you have fed them their one last favorite meal, and held them tight and told them how special they are to you, and how much your life has been enriched by their presence, and then loaded them in the car for that final drive to the veterinary's office. Until you have sat in that office, waiting....with so many other pet families, some with new additions, looking for their clean bill of health, some just getting their yearly check-up and some...like us...that wait for that final appointment. You sit there and WAIT...and try not to cry...not yet...because you want to hold on just a little bit longer, and you don't want them to be scared...and you wait for that call, when they say her name that one last time. When that time comes, you pray for the strength to not stop the doctor because you really do know it's time, and when the doctor puts the needle in their leg, you stroke them, and talk to them assuring them it's okay, and tell them how much you love them, and you wait...you wait until you see the life leave their eyes, the sparkle that you have seen for almost 2 decades, and when it does, you weep...despite the fact that you promised yourself you wouldn't...then you carry them back home...one last time...and bury them under the weeping cherry, next to their other companion. Then my friends, you pray that you were right, and that it really was the right time, and that they didn't blame you and that they weren't scared...and you pray that you didn't wait too long to do it, and that they didn't suffer, and you pray that someday you will see them again. It's easy to judge, it really is...but unless you have walked that mile in our shoes, and other's like us, who have had to make that final decision, than you haven't even come close to earning the right to judge us...not one way or another...so I ask of you, quite literally, please spare us your judgment and your hurtful comments regarding it, because friends, let me tell you...euthanasia...it's a HELL of a thing.

Damn dust in here again.  I'll admit it's not dust.  I miss our girl.

A couple of hours ago I was transferred from the hospital to the rehab hospital, I was taken by one of the ambulances from my squad. The crew, the most thoughtful EMS crews that ever existed brought along a VERY special guest passenger. I haven't seen The Princess since I was taken to the Emergency room three weeks ago.

Thanks to one and all for the good wishes, prayers, good vibes, appendage crossing, etc., it appears to be helping! The white one is drinking and urinating (yay), but still rather frequently and it remains blood tinged (boo). Also, his appetite is a touch off, and he is obviously a bit uncomfortable as he is more restless than usual.

However, I just spoke to the vet, and she says all of this is normal and are good signs that he is getting over the hump, it will just take time to allow the meds to kick in. (breathes huge sigh of relief) We both love you all, and the white boy wants to let you know that he is "resting comfortably", as they say...

Yay!  Thanks for the update.  Very glad to hear he's on the mend.  Hugs & purrs & spicy wings to you both.

tigerose: lilyspad: tigerose: Ok, let me ask a question of our smokers..I do not smoke, and I am super sensative to the smell of smoke on a person..well, we have this volunteer for our after school reading program. Parents sign their kids up..any how, this gal who will be in my work space 4 days a week, absolutely reeks of smoke and um..dirt. It is so bad that today it made me sick to my stomach. Is there a way I can talk to her about this? She just reeks..no other way to describe it...i do not know what to do. Today I actually left the library, because the smell was so strong...help!

Are you the person in charge, or do you have a supervisor?

I have a supervisor, and I did send her an email about this. Funny, she is a casual smoker, but she is definitely on my side. I had talked to her previously about this.

If you have already talked to the supervisor, then she is aware of the problem, and will hopefully deal with it. If not, then I would pull the person aside, and in a very nice tone say that some people have complained about the cigarette smell, and that it is off-putting. Maybe she smokes in an enclosed space, so she doesn't get "aired out", or maybe, she's just a pig......who knows? Just my opinion..... :D

I discovered YakTrax a few weeks ago. Our garage is about 50 or so feet from the back door; the mailbox is maybe 75 or so feet the other way. The driveway gets ICY in the winter. We've lived here 29 years and I've only crabbed about it for 29 winters. The YakTrax slip on to the bottom of your shoes or boots and provide traction!!! It's wonderful - no more slip sliding away.

Well, I guess that lizards don't agree with Tom's stomach. I saw him laying  by the toy basket in the living room but since there was no pile of feathers I figured he was not successful in his hunt today. I had to do a small repair on the wall in that corner so I got the drywall patch and some putty knives and then I saw it. Half a blue belly lizard and a pile of partially digested lizard parts. Gross. Had to clean up after him before I could get anything done. He went back out and is probably catching more things to barf on my floor.

hawaiijenno: Anyone have any advice related to rabbits? Husband & I visited with a lovely flemish giant named Barnaby at the local animal shelter, but neither of us has any bunny experience. He's 10 months old, freshly neutered and 16 lbs.  [img.fark.net image 850x635]

Bunnies can be awesome pets-they are highly intelligent and be taught to use a litter box.  Bunny-proof your house and you don't even need a cage.

Believe it or not, the larger rabbits such as a Flemish Giant are actually easier to care for-they tend to have a more laid back personality.

They make great pets, but they are work-not really much more than a cat is, though.  Rabbit.org has more information, and is a great resource for any questions you may have.

Canadian Lurker: This week, my cat Sterling got sprayed by a skunk, again.
Considering his age and aggressive attitude, bathing him in tomato juice is no longer an option.
Fed up with his smelly stubborness, I told Sterling to go stick his head under a faucet or something.

[i176.photobucket.com image 550x550]

Several others have mentioned peroxide, etc., but no advice for bathing an aggressive cat.

Make it as stress free for Sterling as you can!  No running water, but a pitcher (or several) for rinsing would probably come in handy.  Have everything ready before you start.  If he will let you, I like the idea of cutting an "x" in a paper plate and slipping it over his head.  Perhaps do a dry run, if possible before fluids are involved.

Give Sterling a treat, such as a can of food, that will take a while to eat in the bath tub.  Make sure it is something he loves and that will take a while to eat.

Quickly and carefully, pour the de-smelly mixture over as much of him as you can without handling Sterling.  Quickly, so he is hopefully too interested in his treat to bolt at the first hint of wet on him and carefully to minimize splashing.  If he is still there, rinse him, then attempt to towel him off.  You want to work from the neck to the tail.  You also want his head pointing away from you, if Sterling bolts, you DO NOT want to be in the path of an aggressive cat seeking someplace away from that.

Anything you can think of to reduce his stress is a good idea.  I would talk to him.  Tell him you are trying to help, what you are doing, why, reasure him, and so on.  A treat might distract him enough to stand still.  A towel or non-slip mat might help him feel like his footing is secure even with wet stuff pouring on him.  Who doesn't like a towel warm out of a dryer after their bath or shower?

I'd say if he bolts at any point, let him go, especially if he is aggressive.  I'd say if he just bolts, use your judgement on whether to try again.  If he actually tries to attack you or takes a serious swipe before running, I would not try again.  While I have never had a problem, cat bites can potentially become very seriously infected.

So! Why the FARK is it my house cat is a nightmare to put the Advantage on every month and the feral cat just looks at me like "what is it, Mom? Do I haz a sumfing in my furs?" and then goes back to eating her gooshy fud treat? I swear, the Gogh Beastie did his usual routine of desperately trying to escape the minute I open the little tube, followed by a screaming that sounds like something out of a horror movie and then shaking his head back and forth like "NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!" and when it's all over and I FINALLY put him down, he runs full speed up the stairs, knocking *something* over up there that hit the floor with a very loud "boom!" and clawing his way under a bed where he is now hiding in terror - and the "wild" one doesn't give a fark.


I'm glad I did not get mangled and neither of them even tried, in other words.

Also am glad to hear Sherpa is dancing. I'll fetch the dollar bills. ;-p

I find that particular picture troubling.
Any prairie dog worth his salt can do basic math (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division).
Up to 4 or 5 digits (unless they're autistic).
When facing a problem of "2+2", almost any prairie dog would think to himself, "shiat, this one's a cinch!" .

However, research has indicated that prairie dogs suck at both percentages and integrals.
When faced with something like "What is 17½% of F(x) = xq + 1/(q + 1) where x=4 and q is the square root of Jupiter?"
In that case, the most likely response from the prairie dog would be "shiat3..."
and a cat...

CaveGirlMel: Diocletian's Last Cabbage: CaveGirlMel: yay for Caturday !! This is Bella, the newest member of the family! Bout 6 and 1/2 months old.[img.fark.net image 708x507]

WELCOME BELLA (ow, my head)!  Enjoy the gushy food and scrachy toys.

Welcome, CaveGirlMel.

/Can I have a bite of yer cookie?

Thanks !! (i just got home from work.. so replies are late.. )
Of course you can have a bite!! Cookies for everyone !

Tigerose- I brought Awesome cookies... that's what kind lol.

 We've had her for 2 weeks now, I got her from a girl i work with, who in my opinion, is a bad pet owner.
She's getting fixed very shortly(and according to my vet i was talking to when pricing spay surgeries, said that she should have been fixed at at least 5 months old). I also learned shortly after i brought her home that she's never been the vet at all, So i'm going to be seeing if they can do her boosters the same day she gets fixed. I've never been so disgusted with a pet owner as i was with her previous owners. Plus the fact that her 6 yr old used to practically maul her(i saw first hand, which is why i think she's not a fan of being picked up, seems like she's warming up to it slowly now).

My son on the other hand is thrilled ! She's one of his (very early) Birthday presents(he's almost 5) and tell's me all the time that he's glad we have Bella and how much he loves her. She's spoiled and he constantly plays with her. he doesn't even try to pick her up, he's more content to just sitting next to her to pet her.

I never knew how much i missed having a cat around until we got her. She sleeps next to me, attacks my toes in the morning, chews on her cat grass and runs around most days like she's on crack, she's awesome lol.

Does any one have any post-op tips on how to keep her from picking at her stitches(for when she goes in to get spayed) ? I had cats growing up, but i don't remember the time when my parents got them fixed or how they kept them from picking at it.

Of course i had to add a seco ...

We use Dixie plates if we notice one of the kitties going at their incisions, hell of a lot cheaper than a plastic cone of shame. Just cut a hole in the middle of the plate that will go over the head but not come back off. The plus is that since its paper, if it snags on something, it will rip right off instead of trapping kitty :)

He is also sleeping better, not nearly as restless as he was yesterday. I haz a happy! Thanks once again to everyone for your support, we both really appreciate it!!!

Canadian Lurker:
This week, my cat Sterling got sprayed by a skunk, again.
Considering his age and aggressive attitude, bathing him in tomato juice is no longer an option.
Fed up with his smelly stubborness, I told Sterling to go stick his head under a faucet or something.

peroxide,baking soda and a squirt of dishwashing soap..like Dawn..is the best thing to use on the kitteh for de-skunking.

what is the ratio?

Here's what a quick and dirty search turned up for me...

--------------------------------------------------------------------- - --------------------------------

You can remove the odor from your dog using household items. It's all thanks to chemist Paul Krebaum, who developed the recipe in 1993. Skunk spray is very oily and contains sulfur (hence the stench). This recipe causes a chemical reaction that breaks up the oils and neutralizes the odor.
Difficulty: Average
Time Required: 30-60 minutes
Here's How:

As soon as you realize your dog has been sprayed by a skunk, don some rubber or latex gloves and old clothes and look her over for bites or scratches. Also check her eyes for redness or discharge. If any injuries are found, you should contact your veterinarian before proceeding.
Time is of the essence here - the longer you wait to begin the process, the harder it will be to remove the stench. Get set up for bathing your dog outdoors or in an easy to clean area of your home (laundry room, bathroom, etc). If indoors, open a window to save your nose!
Apply a small strip of eye lubricant (such as Puralube) or 1-2 drops of mineral oil to your dog's eyes. This will help protect the eyes in case any of the solution splashes or drips in.
In the plastic container, combine 1 quart hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 to 2 teaspoons of liquid soap. Add lukewarm water if needed (for larger dogs). Mix ingredients well. The solution will fizz, as a chemical reaction is occurring. Use immediately - do not store.
Do not soak your dog with water prior to bathing. Promptly begin cleansing the affected areas thoroughly, massaging the solution deep into your dog's coat. You may wish to use a sponge or washcloth. Avoid getting the solution in the eyes, ears or mouth.

Allow the solution to remain on your dog for at least five minutes (longer if strong odor persists).
Rinse your dog well with lukewarm water. Repeat steps 3-5 as necessary until odor is gone.
Dry your dog well and give her a treat!


NEVER place the solution in a closed container or spray bottle, as the pressure will build up and the container could burst. This could cause serious injury to you and your dog.
DO NOT use higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide or substitute baking soda with "similar" products. The altered chemical reaction could cause severe injury to you and your dog.
Be certain you use fresh hydrogen peroxide, as it becomes less concentrated over time. If you are unsure how old your hydrogen peroxide is (or if it is expired) get fresh bottles just in case.
The solution can be used to remove skunk odor from clothing and other fabrics. However, it can have a mild bleaching effect on some materials. In addition, your dog's coat may become slightly lighter as a result of the solution. If this happens, it should resolve over time. Don't worry, your black dog will not become a platinum blond!
To help avoid future meetings between skunks and your dog, try to prevents skunks from becoming attracted to your property. Do not leave food outside, including bird seed and fallen fruit from trees. Make sure garbage cans are well-secured. Placing moth balls and ammonia-soaked rags around your property might deter skunks from approaching. In addition, keep your dog within eye shot and keep her from running into wooded areas unattended.

I know I haven't been around in forever, but Catastrophe insisted that I come to support her beloved Dragon.  She is beside herself.  She has decided it would somehow be helpful to roll around in glitter.  Does rolling around in glitter help?

My apologies for the pic quality.  She wouldn't stop moving.

For some reason I'm having problems getting my pictures to post. While I understand that I'm going through some temporary (I hope) memory loss I can't believe I forgot how to post.

Hey Family.
I am here.

With a new battle wound to turn into battle scar.
almost lost my left thumb due to some dumbass.

Thank god I am in here - I need the laughs :(

Hi sweetness! Glad to see you here, but sorry about your thumb. Gentle hugs on their way!

yeah I had yet another dumbass who mistook me for an easy target.
I was on my way home from an interview and he came at me - so I gave him my bag...and something must have set
him off because all of a sudden he was swinging a knife towards my face...
so I put up my hand to block him and got my thumb almost cut off.
Bastard. Can't wait.... he will shiat his pants when he sees me at his court date.

I have just consulted with the white boy, and says he'll make a deal with you - he won't ever give up as long as you agree to do the same.

spinach gunk: What a Dragon resting comfortably might look like

John Buck 41: That's good news  :)

yellowcat: Great News!!!

Thanks again guise, it means a lot to me - I realized a long time ago that the white boy belonged to Caturday as much as he belongs to me ... and we both appreciate it!!

Meanwhile, I managed to get his meds into him a little while ago by using the power of the tuna juice (once again, kudos to my vet who agrees with me that while it may not be good for him, some things are more important)...

And at this point, I think the white one's opinion of this whole debacle could be summed up as follows:

QJ!!!! How is Oscar, and why haven't you posted any more pics of him??? Is he still an inside-outside kitteh???

Well.... it's like this...

It's been a little hectic around here the past few months.
On top of that, it's been colder than the proverbial witches refrigerator and we're expecting a *bunch* of snow this weekend.
In addition, this isn't exactly a good neighborhood to go flashing a $5,000 camera with a $2,000 lens attached.
Sons of biatches around here actually kill folks to rob them of less.
Consequently, until my CCW comes through, I'm pretty conservative on when I get the camera out around here.

Oscar refuses to answer to Oscar...or any other name that I've tried on him.
He does respond to Kitty Cat.
He comes in long enough to eat, and then he howls to be let back out.
I went looking for some Feliway, but when I saw it's over $30, I had to settle for "Natures Miracle".
It doesn't seem to help a lot.
I was hoping to calm him down and get him acclimated to being inside.
So far, there's no joy in Muddville. :-(

Thanks to one and all for the good wishes, prayers, good vibes, appendage crossing, etc., it appears to be helping! The white one is drinking and urinating (yay), but still rather frequently and it remains blood tinged (boo). Also, his appetite is a touch off, and he is obviously a bit uncomfortable as he is more restless than usual.

However, I just spoke to the vet, and she says all of this is normal and are good signs that he is getting over the hump, it will just take time to allow the meds to kick in. (breathes huge sigh of relief) We both love you all, and the white boy wants to let you know that he is "resting comfortably", as they say...[i415.photobucket.com image 640x458]

i am glad he is progressing. Some people are looking to pay the bill. You will not argue. It will be done. This is the power of Caturday. I will pass on the name and partics of your Sainted vet, so that payment may begin. We love you and Dragon, and know that in better times, you have done more than pay forward. In the mean time, take a breathe, talk to us, we haz your back, and it is our pleasure.

Hey everybody!  New cat Jasper is getting along with his new brother just fine, but he's still very much a kitten.  He says hello to the Caturday folks and hopes to be around for a long, long time.  Let him offer you all kisses:

img849.imageshack.usView Full Size

He had worms they got rid of before I adopted him, but he still eats like he's hungry all the time.  That's the only problem so far.  He's still a kitten so he is testing boundaries, and one of those boundaries is trying to eat our food at dinner, or jumping on the table, or eating food off the stove.  We're still working on that.

If you look really close you can see his extra-sexy color-coordinated name tag.

In my attempt to be much better with my health I went in today for the annual boob squish (which I haven't done in 10 years). When I got to the hospital entrance where the clinic is, they had VALET PARKING! It was great since our temps are in single digits again today. (All is good BTW)

I also start my back-strengthening water exercise class tomorrow. If I can get the back better, I should be able to do more stuff like shopping and housework so I never again get to the point I was a couple of months ago.
