As its the Queen of Englands Jubilee thought you may enjoy one of the yeomen of the guards tour comments.
This old granny is tired tonight. But, I'm also happy and proud. Attended Jefferson High School's graduation ceremony this afternoon. Dakotah, one of my grandsons, graduated this year. His older brother, Derrik, graduated in '02. I was there for that graduation, too. (He's also a college grad now -- with a good job -- a sweet wife -- and he's the father of two of my great-granddaughters!) Wow, where have the years gone?! Just a couple more years, and I'll be doing this again. Dalton is the youngest of the three grandsons. He'll be graduating from high school in two years. Today was Dakotah's day, though! And I'm very happy that I was able to be there to see him receive his diploma.
It's Monday again. The beginning of a new week and an opportunity to start lif anew.
It is still cool here and I still love it.
All my furkids are just fine. Pudge is still with me. I try to keep a very close eye on her jaw. I don't want her to hurt any longer than I can help. Tom is still doing well. His hair is still messy looking but he likes it that way. Evidently.
Have a great week everyone.
Good Morning Penny! It looks like everyone stayed in bed yesterday and the day was so gorgeous! Oh well, that left the day entirely to me and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Today I am taking Rosie for a mite treatment. You know if I ever adopt another cat, I hope it isn't a former stray or feral that is gentle. Rosie, Punkin and Little Joe are downright dangerous to medicate. And just think, I found Little Joe as a baby. It just might be in his genes to be wild. I have no problem with the other 3, well Tom doesn't like grooming. That darn black and white tom that I have complained about to Donna brought mites here. I have been sneaking Advantage Multi on him and it seems to be getting rid of his mites. His bloody neck from scratching seems better. I hope so. He has caused me to medicate 6 cats one way or another. And 2 dogs. Little Joe and Punkin are also getting the multi. I have to hold the Advantage above the black and white's neck and squeeze and hope the med gets through his fur. He is a mean cat. I can't pass him without putting something between us most of the time. I am hoping I don't misjudge his mood some day. I keep an old cookie sheet setting by the door. He is really scared of that, the noise like thunder is what does it. There is no way I will hurt him, but I have to protect myself. I already spent a week in the hospital and surgery because of a bite and 2 months of going back to the hospital every day for antibiotics. Hopefully never more.
Congratulations Betty. You have a wonderful family who you love and I am sure they love you.
Its been a rough couple of days but hopefully nothing else happens. Sandi & Stripes
Hi everyone, Sugar, ou just reminded me of when I went into Lucky's yard to feed him after the attack. I didn't take a cookie sheet with me, but I took a large trash can lid, and I felt like some kind of guilatine fighter. I know I probably misspelled that work. I was like, ON Guard !!! I was STILL scared, so I also took a little tykes school desk with me to bang up and down like a lunatic trying to make Lucky think I am dangerous too, or NUTS anyway. I bought that desk for him at a yard sale... He really was special to me but I became afraid of him. It might have something to do with not walking for weeks. I can also relate with giving the advantage to Bob the cat. He was very feral but not actually dangerous. I had to drop the drops from mid air. It is a bad tick season, and Jimmy is getting more than the cats. Willy and Tom are getting the most. Soon they will vanish I hope. Not Willy and Tom, but the ticks. It is going to be a bad summer. Flies all over the place out there, and with your Kitty's neck, be sure to keep an eye out that he doesn't get maggots on it. The Bot fly !!! Well, we are married 30 years today. I will of course be presented with the medal of patience. We shared a box of almond Dove ice cream bars with cadburry chocolate coating. That was soooooo good. They were small ones, and I ate 3 and Jimmy ate 5. Happyness was had by all.
it been a wild start to the week and I am so tire that I do not need to take my sleeping pill the past three night.since waiting to hear from the bank on our van .and how we were offer a 2010 town and county for 18,900. and it has everything in it that the rental has in it.sowe should a newer van soon my friends.But like I said Harry and I are so wore out with all this running around town.at less I have got all our monthly shopping done and just have the wash left to do.as well as cleaning up the mess that was made by michelle and her mom this weekend when their drop in without tell me their plan to stop in.I also feel so down tonight.God Bless
Buried my Aunt Tuesday. Had to take Stripes to the vet Monday for her shots she's wasn't happy at all. I haven't been able to spend time with her with all that's been going on, but making it up to her. Stripes & Sandi
First a message to all my friends who send me comments, messages, something is wrong in my message board. I can receive, but not send messages. So I am not ignoring you, I just can't answer. Does anyone else have this problem?
Donna I just hope the Advantage Multi works by dropping on the neck from mid-air. This is a horrible year for ticks. The nature center is so bad I have to stop every few feet in certain parts to knock then off.
It is mid week already. A friend is moving to North Carolina in another week so the lunch bunch is meeting for one last time with her. Last year we lost one member to death. We miss her. She had just celebrated her 95th Birthday. I think the group is shrinking and soon will be over. Right now we are thinking of meeting only once a month instead of weekly.
Sandi and Stripes. Rosie went to the vets yesterday and a vet tech put the drops in her ears (for mites) and she was so good I could have smacked her! We went there because she fought me so much at home. What is it with cats that at home they are little killers and take them to the vet and they become meek as mice! So Stripes, have you an answer for me?
And speaking of mice. Punkin brought me a live, young mouse last night and it is hiding somewhere behind/under cabinets. Oh goodness. At least it is too young to be pregnant. The last time a live mouse came in it was pregnant and had about 8 babies. I had to buy these new traps that don't kill or glue their little feet to the trap. I took them outside and let them loose. One every day for over a week.
Well everyone have a good hump day. The weekend is getting closer.
Hello people ! My name is Sripes. I never thought I would be posting here, but I have to.
This is to warn My Mom Sandi that she will be going in to the docs soon to get a worm shot ! IF...... I do not get a nice cooked steak with a side order of chicken. I DESERVE it, and I would like to have a tuna cocktail on the side.
THEN,,,, You will be forgiven for my lack of quality time.....
Yours truly, Stripes
This is Rosie ! Queen of the Sugar shack ! Anybody remember that sugar shack song???
I am posting to my Mother Sugar !!!! Now, I am a sweet kitty. You just have to understand that I get bad back lash from those mites when you put the stuff in my ears, not to mention you shake too much when you do it.
Now, I get to go to the nice vets office, and it is like a vacation away from home, so I calm down some, and I can see that the brute giving me the drops is not scared of me at all, and that scares me.
According the book of cats and what makes us happy, you must first pet the head, then under the neck. Feed tuna to the cat, then a nice turkey dinner after the mites meds, and the cat, that is ME, will forgive and forget.
I loved Sugar Shack! That was my favorite song long ago! Thanks for reminding me. My sister always played it on the juke box for me when we went to a restaurant. Those were the days! That is one of my favorite songs too. Those were the days my friend. Remenber that one?
Donna I think you are full of crap! Taking sides of the cats instead of their wonderful, loving, caring moms! You hear that Stripes and Rosie? Well Donna I did buy some of Rosie's favorite snacks after our vet visit. Beef, Turkey and chicken flavored baby food. Also a can of tuna. What about you Sandi, did you take care of Stripes appropriately?
Donna I just got back from saying goodbye to my friend Marcia. She is going to Tennessee, not the Carolinas. And at the restaurant I saw a woman, maybe as old as 30 something and she reminded me so much of some pictures of you I've seen. The hair was long and blonde. A good looking lady.
Rosie told me to say, a good looking lady to thank you for your kind words about her.
Sugar, I have not spent much time with my Stripes due to visiation & the funeral for my Aunt and relatives from out of town, but she got a can of tuna Monday after the vet visit and lots of hugs and kisses and I'm making it uo to her now. Stripes sends hugs. Sandi.
This is Fredryckelee just posting this for mom she is so wore out from what all's beeen going on its not funnie.Mom wrote it and I just going to post it for her.
well DAD and Mom can slow down ad relaxe.theygot our new van today.Its 2010 town a nd couny.I just love it.With Michelle still up north for the summer is going to be a big help to dad a ndmom healing now.their both are in so much pain from the paast five days of on going running .Now to get the setllement over with and getting evey thing paid of in full and back on their feet once again.The guy was out today and show dad the wheelchair lift and it with work great in the 2010.and it will only cost 4000.00 to have it put in.mom see the cancer doctor in the afternoon.So mom and dad can get some stuff done around the house before we leave.So yes,mom back again..and happy that she back.Love you all God bles
All Stripes, I love you! But please don't share your thoughts with Rosie or any of the others. Rosie specially. She would probably jump right into the boat with you!
Well, all you furkids and parents, I am about to go out for our morning walk. Back in a couple of hours,
Stripes is out prowling the neighbor hood as she hasn't been out for a few days. now that I can spend some time with her she wants to go out. Oh well thats a cat for you! Hugs to all from Stripes & me. Thanks to Lisa, Betty &sugar for thinking of me at the time of my loss.
I did not have a ramp in my ford.so the their would not pay for it.its nice wishing tho.y lawer is doinga great job.I am just praying that it stay out of court.because it be so hard for me to get ito the court house without the use of my scotter.because harry can no longer lift it back in the van.as he been doing since 1999.at less the next few days we can stay at home and givetimeto our kats for a change.As I promise to Big Mack and Fredryckelee on wenesday afternoon.That we spend the next few days and rest and just take it easy.which we have not been able to do since May 4,....So it long over due to us both.Harry s so beat that he eat dinner and fall right to sleep in his chair. kats are all so very happy that we are home tonight.so wht was your day like everyone.God Bless
Stripes sends hugs to all the cats out there. Mom's not happy with me as I have fleas for some reason the flea stuff didn't work so she has to give me another treatment and spray the house, I only wanted to share thrm with her and that loud bird she won't let me play with! Love from Stripes.P.S.I don't like chicken but love the tuna I got.
Hello Sandi C.I was just changing the thread on ABC Dress your cat game & saw your comment that said someone had deleted 3 of your posts.If I had deleted them you would automatically get an email from me telling you I had deleted them for thread clean up which we do on the games to make room for a new thread.You will get some today as I have made a new thread.I assure you I did not delete your posts.We do have a lot of technical problems on Care2 & often posts disappear because of latency or technical problems on Care2.I myself have written long posts in this thread & have them disappear into space somewhere!Ive had to wait & post when things are back to normal again which I know is very annoying so I know where your coming from.I can only apologise on behalf of care2 techs & if it happens to you again & theres no email from me you know its a problem on the site which unfortunately can happen quite often as they are so short staffed.
Have a great day cat lovers & your kitties.
I have thought that my posts were missing MANY times, and when I refreshed the page, there they were.
Also, I use to make the mistake of posting pictures, then had no idea that they would disappear if I removed them from my album, but I found out that they cannot be moved.
I was posting mug shots in my old Christian group that I use to have. I posted them for different people, then took them out of my album. I saw no reason to keep them after I posted them, and then all the pics were vanishing.
I posted one ladies picture, and it disappeared, and she said I removed it because she was ugly. I posted the thing.
Thanks Penny, I have the same problem with care2 once in awhile. Guess computers aren't human! Stripes sends her love.
Hi Donna,you are so funny,you always make me laughHugs
Hi Sandi & Stripes Hugs to you both!
Teri lots of hugs to you, Harry,Michele & your kitties.
Oh my. Any time I have to go anywhere I get depressed. Well except for walks, Church and the grocery store. I think I could become a hermit very easily. Next week I am supposed to go to another goodbye lunch, just a lunch with a friend and a dinner with more friends. And I don't want to do it!!! Today I could have went to a special event at Fort Ancient and didn't even have to drive. But I turned it down. Of course it would have cost money to chip in for gas and then admittance. Maybe that's why I don't want to go any where! I see dollars I can't put on real estate taxes or other essentials. Sorry for the whining but you would think after working 39 years I would be a little better off. Things just happen that you can't control. At least I have a roof over my head, food and the internet for now to connect with you all. And most of all I still have furkids. I hope they live for a long time because there will be no more for me. Tom is sitting by my feet right now. For 21 he looks so good. I just held him for a few minutes and gave him some sugar. He loves it, just don't try to comb his fur.
A heat wave is coming in today. It will be at least 88 and tomorrow 90. I hope everyone else's weather is a little more sensible, like 70 to 75 degrees.
I keep an eye out for that large snake that I have seen at my back door. I have some one who will catch and remove it for me if I see it. Just a phone call away. I really hope I never see it again. Especially a skin. That would mean it is growing even larger.
I feel better after crying on your shoulders, that is one of the things that is great about the Cat Lovers on this board. They celebrate the good with you and cheer you up when needed. Bless you all.
I have GOOD news for you Sugar. After reading about the snakes there, Me and my cats will not be moving in with YOU.... YIKES, The hairs on my arms are on end now, and they won't go down. I am terrified of snakes.
Do you remember the song (I don't like spiders and snakes)? EEKS
Don't feel bad about not wanting to go places. I just got a call from my youngest sister that she does not want to go to dinner in Atlantic City with my other sister, to meet our oldest sister and her friend.
Atlantic city is dangerous. My sister just read about someone getting murdered, so it doesn't make a person want to go there. I had a friend that was held up at a traffic light YEARS ago. The guy got his wallet, and he was lucky that he didn't get killed. In Millville there are bed bugs, and I don't know how far south they are, but the motels have them.
So, going into the city you can get mugged, or shot or attacked by street walkers or drug addicts. I am not fond of the city life. There are #1 places to go in the shore area. I think Wildwood has a good reputation, and Ocean city too. I use to like Margate.
So, my sister is not happy about the dinner. My other sister will be flying in from Ohio, I forgot to mention.
The sister that is driving keeps looking at the sister she is talking to while she drives, and she is a nervous wreck, and wants her to keep her eyes on the road. I told her to threaten her with getting diarrhea if she doesn't watch the road.
The driver sister rode with me one time, and I was on a 4 lane hwy. She kept telling me to speed up or the cars will run me down. After that didn't work, she tried the diarrhea thing. Said she would be crapping herself if I didn't speed up.
I said "Are you going to pay the ticket?" She said yes. I sped up a little. Didn't want to take my chances with the possibility that she was not kidding.
My youngest sister did invite me, but I said no as usual.
I know what you mean Sugar, I love to stay at home, I hate to go shopping everything is to expensive. My Aunt from Mississippi was here for her sister's funeral, I don't think her and my dad spoke 20 words between them, makes it hard on everyone. Stripes eye is swollen up had to clean it. I need to mow my lawn but its too hot, I'm waiting until later today. Hugs from Stripes & Me.
I, too know how you feel Sugar! I don't like to go anywhere because it costs money. I'm not cheap, just on a limited income and I have no one else to depend on for financial assistance.
Well Karen, Sandi and Donna and Stripes. I wrote a long post to you all and lost it by hitting refresh before posting! Sorry but the only thing I am going to repeat is, Stripes what's wrong with your eye? You just came from the vets and should be absolutely perfect right now. Let me know how you are.
Here is Rosie. We were playing this morning and she was so cute I just had to take pics. She is the biggest eyed cat I know.
Now how about those eyes?
Here she is playing
Thanks for asking about Stripes eye, I don't know what happened its got icking stuff coming out of it and is swollen a little been cleaning it with warm water, can't get into the vet until Monday, she can see out of it and it is looking better. I think she was in the weeds somewhere. Stripes & me.
Hi Rosie! You look a lot like my Pola! She's a little black girl and one of Maya's daughters.
Stri[pes I hope your poor eye is better soon!
Stripes might have gotten something in her eye. Poor baby ! Opticlear is good to have on hand for irritated eyes.
Sugar, # 3 picture of Rosie is a good one. You can see her eyes. She has pretty eyes too......
Its been a other lazy day.but Sunday will the day to do al the wash and than same once again.but not as much as michelle is since gone .it was n the 90's here today that was other reason why Harry and I refused to go any where and beside that I made a promise to Fredryckelee and Big Mack that mom amd dad would spend saurday and friday all day with them ans get the rest we so badly were in need of.so that what we have done.and happy that we did.God Bless everyone and that your weekend is being awesome to you all.
its been a great day here for once.Monday the scotter guy is cameing out to do the repairs on my chair and scotter.and than with hope that its not to hot out again we will go and do the wash. and get some clean clothes for the week.we were able to get all caught up on every thing this weekend as well.With the house work and papper work and sleep.THe kats were so very happy that we were here all weekend since friday.just step out to the store for some stuff we were running out of which Big Mack give us both a dirt look when we walked out the front and did he talk to us once we were back home.I pray that you all had awesome weekend and that your week is just as awesome .God Bless..
Donna I am not using my basement door very often right now. That snake is living under the platform in front of the door. He also hides in a couple of places within a couple of feet. I never realized how snake friendly my back door is. There is the heat pump which he hides under and between a large planter and a stone wall with ivy growing between them. Girl Dog is too old now and I won't let her tackle it. She used to keep the snake population down for me.
It's raining today. I am glad. I still want to take a walk, I will have to just wait and see.
Hello and good morning to everyone. I hope life is good to you today. All furkids too! Especially Stripes. How is her eye?
Hello all cat lovers. I am back from Tennessee now. Thank-you Penny for your well wishes, my husband and I had a lot of fun. I like Elvis too but unfortunately we didn't go to Memphis my mother lives in Kingsport which is closer to North Carolina so Memphis is another 9 hour drive. 12 was enough for me from where I am in Ontario, Canada. I missed my furkids so much but my petsitter was great and they were all ok when we got home last night. I am off to work now. Hope you all have a wonderful day cat lovers Sugar, Rosie is adorable and those beautiful eyes.
Michela, it is good to see you back again, and safe. That is a lot of driving across a state. I think from Capemay to Jersey city it might take about 4 hours. That is across the entire state/
Sugar, I would not use the basement door at all. You need to call that reptile guy on TV that goes to houses to rid them of things like snakes. Our cable programs are off now, so I forget his name. His Mother is a dispatcher. My sister has a crawl space like we do, and she saw some snake skins under her house. She has a stream on her property.
Stripes just got back from the vets, her eye isn't as swollen but still oozing. We have to put drops in 3 x times a day and go back on Thursday. Good thing I loved the little %#&!*% as she's costing a lot lately! Stripes & me .P.S. Say a prayer she gets better, Thanks.
Donna people who come and remove critters charge money and i don't have any extra to pay for things like that. I just checked on her and she is still there. I believe she is a Northern Water Snake and also I believe she is a female. It is breeding season now and babies will be born beginning August. With any luck I will have her gone by then. I could kill her any time now, but I am not much for killing God's critters even when I don't care for them. I would only kill in self defense of my furkids and me. Or any one in serious danger. And then I would try to disable them instead of kill. I think I know how she got here. The last big flood came into the driveway and it probably just dropped her off and she said, Hey this is nice, lots of toads and a nice house too!
Sandi I know what you mean about vet bills. Taking 8 pets in for routine visits and shots and then the emergency visits. I am pet poor. My carpet is almost worn through but I can't replace it. But the vet bills in a year alone would pay for one. Oh well, the furkids don't mind the carpet.
Thanks for Rosie compliments. Speaking of Rosie, I think she has come across that snake. She is suddenly shy of all strings and things. I have a cushion that is dark and has fairly large ties that is in the house right now because of the rain and she about jumped out of her skin when she saw the strings.
Durn it, my big long post didn't come back! I will leave and come back later, I did refresh.
Sugar, most cities and counties have animal control services and will come to remove creatures from residential property. They are paid by your tax dollars so I think they'd be worth calling--especailly if the snake is venomous!
I did a quick search for Northern water snakes and they are not venomous--but they can be very aggressive. Thy give birth to live young and can have up to 30 young at a time! WOW!!
Your post is there. Sometimes if you think you are going to lose a post, try using the back button.
Like Karen said, try calling animal control. I was just about to tell you that when I read Karen's post.
Sugar, Your right we do without for our furbabies. Stripes is not a happy camper as she doesn't like the drops I have to put in her eye. She was so cute at the vets, she hates her carrier but jump off their table in into the carrier she was ready to go home. She can't go outside so thats making her mad. I've been doing alot of holding, etc. Love to all Stripes & me.
Hi Donna Im not getting any posts from the group even though Im supposed to be on individual e mail.Is there a problem with my preferences?Please will you email me and let me know as Im not getting any posts for a couple of days.Thanks.
Thanks Karen. I will check around. It is going to be hard to get to her when she is in her 'house'. And she is so alert and fast. She scared me half to death yesterday. I was looking through the slats to see her, BUT I heard a rustling to my right and glanced that way and wow! An explosion of snake! I swear she seemed to jump 2 feet in the air and headed behind the flower planter and the stone wall covered in ivy. I jumped 4 feet to the left! Her head is so small compared to her body size. Of course I am not positive she is a female, but after reading that females are larger than males and she is large, I named her Shirley. I am going to try and remove some of the ivy to keep her out of there. But darn, where does the time go? I just can't believe it, there isn't time for anything any more. It is true that when you get older time goes faster. That's weird, but true.
Hi Stripes! I hope your eye is better. I know you don't like the drops, but your mom is taking care of you. Soon you will be all well. My little Pudge is worrying me to death. Each time I think it is time, she kind of gets it together again and I say I can't do it yet. Her little jaw bone seems to be getting bigger and she doesn't eat quite as much. It is getting harder and harder to give her meds. When she sees me she almost runs away from me. I have to catch her asleep. Luckily she is deaf and doesn't hear me approach. Right now she is in one of her beds that I can't get to her, durn it. Any way Stripes, Pudge says you are younger and if you want to live as long as her, take your eye drops and without making your mom feel bad. It is important. Say a prayer Stripes for Pudge. I have had a a few weeks longer than I had originally hoped. I hope to keep her for a few more weeks. She was constipated for a short time and the vet said to give her an 8th teaspoon of Miralax. I think it worked. I know it worked. So remember if your cat has hard stool problems and strains a lot. Call your vet and check out Miralax. It is an over the counter med. Tom takes it 3 or 4 times a week. He is also 21 and strains a little. That is his only medical problem except his hair! It's a matted mess. I try to sneak a patch out ever now and then. I have a big scratch on my left arm and a hole where he left a whole claw on the right. He is fast and still very strong! And I give him kisses all the time. He loves that.
Hi everyone else. I have to get ready to go volunteer at the local food bank. Bye for now.
thanks Sugar for asking about Stripes, We had to go back to the vets on Thursday, eye still swollen, had to order new medicine and won't receive until Monday, than back to the vet this coming thursday. Stripes is praying daily for Pudge and all your animals. Computer is been acting up lately, if it's not one thing its something else to go wrong. Oh well guess thats what makes us strong. Hugs to all from Stripes & me.
My ol' boy, Vinnie is 16 now, and for a while was passing something like concrete golf balls....however, since he was cleared out by the vet( don't ASK how much the bill was ), he has been better than normal eating Royal Canin Fibre Response..it's expensive, but REALLY works.
Trudi I won't ask either you or Sandi about the vet bills. I am very familar with them. I know I probably could have had the new carpet in the family room if there weren't so many vet bills. Oh well, healthy cats are better than new carpets.
Stripes what does the vet say is the problem with your eye? Is it an eye infection or an injury? We are praying for you.
Thanks for the heads up on the constipation food. The stools that a cat has are a good way to know how healthy the kitty is. OR sick!
well I went to see the choripatcie today and find out that I have a rip mucle and bad roller cup and the weck did not help it.it made worris all over again.so I go in every two days.for the next month or so.he going use deep deep heat a nd exestingthearm andhim working on it.after my first treatment today was the first day since the weck I was without any pain for five hours none stop.praying that everyone had a great week nd that the weekend will be awesome.God bless
Hi Sugar,thank you for agreeing to take over this thread.Many thanks to Donna also.Im having problems getting posts on care2 & not able to post easily untill its fixed which could take time as they are having lots of problems so mine is not a priority. Sugar will take over the thread.She does always does such a great job on here.Hugs to you all
The vet says Stripes has some type of herbies infection, kind of like a cold sore. The eye is looking much better is its open where I can see hereye at least. Thanks for the prayers, how is pudge doing? hugs to all.
Its warm here in Illinois also. I'm also having trouble with care2.
Penny, if at any time you wish to have it back, please consider it done. I will take it over for you til then. I am going to try to change everything over tonight. I am no computer person so wish me luck. I can type and use programs as long as they work, but any problems I am lost! Thanks for recomending me. And remember I can not use the message board to send messages. I am able to read though in case you don't need an answer.
Now, its hot here too. We have a full week of 89 to 91 degrees. We might have some much needed rain Monday and Tuesday, hope, hope! After that I drag the mower out.
Chewy and I had a great walk this early morning. We walked in the woods and there was a breeze even in the woods. Great walk.
I just came in from tearing down some big shelves and removing nails so I can use the wood in making more birdhouses, etc. I did the work just in front of the snakes home. Shirley, her name, watched me part of the time. Billy was going to come up and help me remove her yesterday but he didn't make it. I swear a person can get attached to anything with enough time. When you give a snake a name, that's a bad sign. I need her gone before she has babies in August!!!! Can you imagine 30 plus baby snakes in my driveway? I can't!
Everyone enjoy the day. Tomorrow is Father's Day, so Happy Father's Day to all the papas here.
I was going to ask you if the eye was a herpes eye. I had 2 cats with the herpes eye. One was so bad that I called to ask how much money I need to get an eye removed. As it turned out, He saved the eye, and was put on Idoxuridine. He tried other stuff and then put him on this for the viral infection. It took a long time to get rid of it too.
Shirley the snake. My hairs are on end and my legs have goose bumps.
Yes it is the herpes infection, I got idoxuridine drops and famciclovir tablets. It looks a little better. How long as a long time? She fights me every step of the way.
