Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Had a good doctor's appointment yesterday. I got my flu shot, my pneumonia shot, and blood work done. She's faxing in my prescription refills and my mammogram order. The spirometry test I was supposed to have done is evidently not done there so I'm just going to skip it. I just find it funny that the people scheduling my appointment didn't know it wasn't done there. Not much else going on here, just my usual.

 

Sandi, great to see you here. Well, it's finally Friday so the cats ought to be happy.

 

Laura, it's good you don't worry.

 

Wendy, good to know that the cats are in the ait. My cats are ready to be picked up. Great to hear that Jen's cat is doing a bit better.

 

Teri, sorry you have another bladder infection. Hope you feel better soon. Nice that the new realtor is willing to work with y'all to find a house. Best of luck in finding the perfect house. Great that the cats, kittens and everyone are doing good.

 

Take care and have a fantastic day. Have a wonderful weekend.

Just a drop in to say Good Morning every one.  I'm going on a walk as soon as the furkids are on their way to Hawaii and the luau.  I'm going to a party Saturday, an early Thanksgiving party at a park.  When is everyone due home?

 

Have a good weekend everyone, especially you Sally with all your guests.  Tell Buni Chewy will help care for Jaz.

Stripes keeps looking out the window for Buni.  yes Stripes its finally Friday. I don't know when their coming home as they never said. Later.

Hi Sandi, they left here already.  Mouse has a hard time with schedules so he depends on Stripes and Buni.  I think they get to Hawaii around 6 pm.

 

I probably won't be online but for a minute tomorrow.  I will check on the luau cats, and dogs and Jaz.

droped in to say hi not much going on here i think in the morning im going to see if i can get baby shadow in to see our vet shes starting to have wt. issues and turning into a grazer so i can save a bit of money on a vet bill does anyone have any idea on how to salve these issues?

Sandi I kept Punkin and Kenny and Little Joe home,  Kenny is too old to travel that far away from me and Punkin and Little Joe are loners.  They will help out here on the home front and they enjoy it when the cats come but really don't want to travel.  All the pictures the cats are posting makes me want to be there too!

 

Patricia I have a grazer or two.  Lots of active play helps with wt. issues and a good light cat food.  Kenny who is going on 17 years was 23 pounds and after 3 years of keeping food away from him at night he is down to 16 pounds.  That is the only change I made.  His vet doesn't want him to lose any more.  Oh, I am assuming the wt. issue is weight gain, not loss.  Wt. loss I worry about.

Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Spoke to my daughter last night. She rescued a 6 week old kitten {no name yet} yesterday on her lunch hour. Someone else found him and sent a picture to her asking her if she kne wof anyone who could take him. She's as big a sucker for kitties as I am so she took him. He's mostly white with patches of orange/red. Very cute little guy. She had him at the vet's yesterday during her lunch hour and other than having some fleas he's a healthy baby. They gave him a flea bath b'cuz he's too young  for the flea medication though they gave her some for later. Not much else going on here, just my usual.

 

Sugar, whoo hoo, look at you, going to a party today {Saturday}! Hope you have a great time. I've only got Osiris home with me now. The others all went to Hawaii! Osiris is older and a loner so he didn't go. I think the cats plan to come home on Monday.

 

Sandi, great to see you here. Stripes sure was excited about going to Hawaii. Though I think it had a lot to do with her seeing Mouse again!

 

Patricia, sorry you have to take Baby Shadow in to the vet's. As Sugar said, limit her meals. Maybe instead of leaving food out all of the time, feed her 3 times a day or so. That is if she's gaining a lot of weight. If she's losing definitely get her to the vet.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Sugar have fun today.  Darla have to tell us the cats name when he gets one. Yes Stripes was excited but your right I think it had more to do with her Mouse. Have a great day everyone.

It's amazing how much more I can get done with just 3 cats and no dogs here.  I now have both outdoor tables painted.  The big picnic table in the yard and the smaller one on the deck.  A beautiful shade of cedar something or other, it is kind of a burnt orange to me, I tried to change the color here to show you, but it won't work, Oh well, that's that,


Darla I'm going to have a good time tonight. My baked beans are ready to take. Dinner will be around 5:30 and the meat will be ham and deep fried turkey. And everyone is supposed to bring a covered dish. We will have a camp fire also. I guess I should take some marshmallows. I would have taken Chewy but I think he would rather be there with his Stripes and good friends. The kitten will tell your daughter her name sooner or later. This lady named her dog "Face" because it was always in her face. I love how our furkids get their names. Kenny was because he was so skinny when he found me one day so I started calling him Skinny Kenny but it wasn't long until I had to leave the Skinny off. There is a story of why Wosie is Wosie besides in honor of Rosie. I'll have Mouse tell that tale some time when he gets back. It's kind of sad. Not animal sad, it won't make any one feel bad.



Sandi, those two, Mouse and Stripes are having the time of their life along with everyone else, Tell Stripes I saw Kitty who might be a sibling of Guy. I fed her well. I put lots of food out for her today since I didn't see her yesterday.
I hope this post works! Here goes,


Sugar

Hi to all!

This September Kiev broke 2 weather records- the coldest September in the last 100 years and the most rainy September in the last 90 years. As a result-  big harvest of mushrooms! 

The good news this week- rains gradualy going down, from raining all day long to just 2-3 hours a day, and more sunshine. There is still hope that we'll enjoy short (4-5 days) Indian Summer this fall. It would be nice!

All I can offer about the weight gain is that dry food puts more weight on than canned food since dry food has more carbs, and canned is the protein our cats really need. I have a grazing old cat, but she grazes on canned food rather than dry. I am opening cans all day for her. She WAS skinny when I got her as an old cat. Maybe switching to a light food as Sugar mentioned. Science diet light is a good light food that my cats use to get, and liked.

Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Have an application to process for MCRA. She had applied for one of the 2 kittens we had but an already approved adopter adopted them both! So she may be interested in the female, adult cat we have. It rained her beginning yesterday afternoon and going thru this morning. We have 60% chance of more thunderstorms today. Not much going on here, just my usual.

 

Sandi, yes, when my daughter tells me the kitten's name I'll share it. I told her she should name him Van b'cuz he looks kinda like those Turkish Van cats. Another friend of mine posited the name Lucky which I also passed on to my daughter. Yeah, Stripes is always very happy to spend time with Mouse.

 

Sugar, glad you got your tables done. Yes, it is different when we don't have as many animals under our feet or helping us do our chores. The party sure sounds like it was going to be fun. Did you wind up taking any marshmallows? Were you able to make s'mores by any chance? A bonfire is a fabulous opportunity to make them. Yes, I believe the kitten will tell my daughter his name. That's a great story about Kenny. Looking forward to hearing Mouse tell how Wosie got her name. 

 

Patricia, you're welcome for the information. Do let us know what happens with BAby Shadow.

 

Elena, glad the rains are decreasing. Enjoy th emushrooms.

 

Donna, my cats won't eat canned food. Well, I'll take that back, a couple of them will but only certain flavors. The rest of the cats only want the dry food so that's what they all get. They also get salmon every once-in-awhile. It's the kind that comes in a pouch {like tuna} in the people food section of the store. Two pouches feeds my 5 cats.

 

Shell, sorry you had to rush Tiggy to the vet. Sounds like he had gotten pretty bad though it also sounds like they fixed him up good. How's he doing now? Hope he improves soon. Oh dear, your husband has pneumonia and your youngest son a cold. Hope they get better soon.

 

Laura, sounds like y'all had a good family day.

 

Wendy, yes, the cats are having a blast in Hawaii! I just checked out Mouse's thread and there's some fabulous photos on there. I love the one of the cat surfing {i think it was Guy} and the one of the sea turtle they befriended. So, he got pictures of Shasta, Cinder and maybe Kona? Any pictures of Scamp? It sounds great to me to go ahead and start a thread of party pictures. You could call it "Cats' Party Pictures" and the cats can post pictures of all their parties there. I'll check out the Book club thread to read about that book.

 

Teri, you should take the antibiotic. It'll help you get over the bladder infection faster. It's great that Michelle is all packed. Hope y'all find a house soon. Aren't the kittens still on Kitten Chow {or the equivalant in another brand}? Sorry to hear that Harry lost his balance again.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Hi Darla,..

I only have a few minutes, so I thought I would drop in to say hello. Please accept my apology for not being as active as normal within the group.

  As you know, things have been "Complicated" over the past week or so in my household, and I am having to make some new changes for the future, so my computer time is going to be not nearly what it has been.

I hope you and your kitties and your program are doing well.

Take care,

Just popping in quickly to say hi.  I am up early today; I have to drive down to the city this morning so I need the extra hour to feed my caffeine addiction.  I don't want to be driving with my eyes closed after all    I'm going down to visit my daughter and grandson.

 

I hope you all have a wonderful day everyone!!  I hope all the cats had a purrrrfectly awesome time in Hawaii and nobody got lost or sunburnt.

Teri I feel so bad for you. Punkin had some problems which at first we thought was bladder infection, but after getting into it further, we think she had a kidney stone. She is fine now, so it either passed or moved out of the way to come back again another day. I hope by now your bladder infection is on the way to full recovery.

The party was great, we had a bonfire and we all sang songs and no I decided against the marshmallows. Food, my goodness a selection fit for a King or me. Ham and turkey the meat and every kind of side dish you can imagine. My baked beans were all eaten. There was a salad out of this world. Tiny bits of cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, celery, green onions and I think maybe a little shredded cheese, not sure about that. I have to find out about the cheese. Then a little Hellman's light mayo, 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar and a couple teaspoons of sugar (or the diet stuff) and it was delicious! And someone baked a turtle cheesecake. So while Mouse, Chewy and Wosie were pigging out at the luau I wasn't do too bad myself. And last night was the monthly dinner and the main course was beef burgundy with noodles. And the dessert was extra special. A recipe that Ellen brought back from her home town in Germany. It was light and as good as any cheese cake. I think I am hung up on food right now due to Wednesday being the big day when I become an old, toothless woman, well I will have teeth, and they will be my own because I am paying for them. Think of me Wednesday!

Everyone, this is the only day I have to get some things done cause company tomorrow and dental tomorrow, so have a good week. I have to get started.

Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Mde my last thing of Pillsbury Cinnabon cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting. When I was at the doctor the other day I'd gained 3-4 pounds in about a month. So no more cookies and cinnamon rolls for a while. Sunshine was outside when I took out the food/water for the outside cats. The cats should be on their way home now. Not much else going on here, just my usual.

 

Abo, yes, you'll have to drop in and tell us the story. It sure is great of you to save them!

 

Laura, I did my usual reading, computer stuff, exercise bike, then more reading and finally watching some TV with Ray. Oh, I also worked on an application for MCRA. This applicant is interested in our adult, female cat!

 

Jenevieve, I sure hope Elsie is doing better. I'm so sorry that happened. No apology is necessary. You just come here when you can. I'm sorry things are so complicated. Hope things ease up soon. Everyone and everycat in my household is fine. The group I volunteer for is doing well also. Thanks for thinking of us.

 

Sandi, great to see you here.

 

Angie, Love the picture! Hope you got enough caffeine in you to make that drive. No, we wouldn't want you to make it with your eyes closed! Hope your daughter and grandson are doing well.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day. Have a wonderful week.

Hi Darla,.. It seems the worst of Elsie's ordeal is over.

 
Out of respect for everyone here in the group, and what is not acceptable in conversation, I thought it would be better to not share what happened to him, along with the complications I went through last week, which were quite frightening.


All that needs to be said at this point in time is THANK YOu for everyone's thoughts and prayers.


As of last night and this morning after I gave Elsie his treatment, I could NOT FIND A WOUND or the abscee that the vet claimed he had.  There was a clear and indicative wound earlier last week after what happened to him that left me very worried, but since I started treating him with 50/50 Hydrogen peroxide and water, and then Betadine, along with a prescription of Amoxicillin,.. Elsie has been miraculously healed!


He's not even running a temperature! Theonly thing that I feel where his wound was, is his little chest bone. 


Despite what happened, he has kept up his appetite and ability to drink, along with resume his potty habits that had been affected.


He's back to his normal behavior,.. being the ray of sunshine that he has always been,.. meowing and purring again, (which had subsided for a few days after the ordeal),..  He's rolling on the floor showing his tummy and being his cuddly self (which had also been affected for a few days.)  The only thing I'm noticing is that Elsie is having a harder and slower time of climbing up the stairs (since I live in a townhouse..)


I feel truly blessed that Elsie has made a turn around.



I don't have to think,..  as I know that if it weren't for everybodies concern and support here at Care2,.. it might not have been such a positive outcome,.. if not a longer drawn out recovery.


Thank you to everyone for your kindness.

Wendy,

I have done that for so many years that I just got tired of doing it. I did it all by myself with putting my cats in and posting what they had to say etc.  That is the reason, and I am running ragged for quite some time. I don't know what it is to relax my mind.

 

My glasses have been scratched up badly, and I wasn't sure where my computer glasses were. I did find them , and am wearing them now, but it is a pain to keep taking them off when I leave the computer for a few minutes.  It is a shame. I think the no glare feature is what has ruined my glasses AGAIN. Not going to get that anymore.

 

Wednesday morning at 11:30 I am meeting with the health insurance broker, and he will make me a broker that I am already.   True, but according to him, it is the best plan compared to the rest.

Sounds like you had a good day, Darla. I didn't have my riding lesson today because Sandy is in St. Petersburg with her son. He got hit by a car on Thursday night while he was out riding his bike and got really banged up, so Sandy is with him at the hospital.

Donna,

Oh I see , I didn't know Donna, I havent used a computer really, untill last year when I joined care2, when I started, oh my gosh it was painful to watch me, try to find a letter, One finger circling the key board, now where was ? er -c- er. can you imagine how long it took me to type -Christine, for example?. The amount of times I was timed out of things grrrrrr, oh I am brilliant now, 2 fingered typist, sometimes three!!!! I think I am everyone, when I use two fingers on the same hand to do >@  - or >?  -or even > >  thats why it took me so long to sus out photo's , next I will master photo's from my phone to computer/Lappy.

When I did assessments at work, they all had to be hand written due to "data protection", oh how much quicker they would have been with delete cut copy paste.

not now though, and i think the reports i have to do now has helped me, but windows  word <>is so different to >google.net.

Too bad about your glasses, mine were digraceful,  but now I am waiting to get my other eye fixed, I see double, as my eyes aren't aligned, you know what i mean, so my left eye see's things in beautiful tech colour , but further away> than my right eye,> which with my glasses lense brings things forward,> but foggy and dull, can you imagine, I had to take the lense for> my left eye glasses out completely from the frame, but leave the right lense in, aye aye aint getting older a scream literately !!!.


what with that, m.s and osteo-arthritic knees,!!!!> still musn't grumble >lol

Are you a broker? your system baffles me, yet,> our system baffles most of Americans, >it's a mad world, I will stick with NHS ,> I simply could not tolerate taking a job , on the basis of health care, it is almost like the feudal system, or tied housing, >house goes with the job, lose the job lose your home??

now back to "Coronation St," and "Doc Martin"  monday eve specials for me. see you in the word games, but if the mood takes you and you have the time, get one of your cats to pop into Mouse's threads ?

Hi Donna, Laura and Wendy. Sorry about your glasses Donna.

Laura, I saw your Hey! Sorry to hear a young man was hit by a car. Tell Sandy I will put her boy in my prayers.

Wendy I love Doc Martin as I told you before. It is so funny, but funny isn't really the right word, but the best I can come up with. Humorous might be a better word. And the scenery is terrific. I love the narrow streets, the houses and of course the bay (?). And the regulars, I feel like I know them. If you ever get a chance to see "Duck Dynasty" a family, unscripted show, please do at least one time for me. Two or three would be even better. It shows life more as I grew up with. They live in Louisiana. If a neighbor of ours hadn't been a hunter I wouldn't have had very much meat at all. Oh their family business is making Duck Calls and Deer Calls.

Everyone have a wonderful day,

sorry sugar stripes said to send you this!

Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Had ordered a new cat scratcher and it came in yesterday! It's an angled, reversible {carpet on one side, sisal on the other} scratcher. The cats all love it! They seem to like it much better than the post style. I also received a family ring that Ray had ordered for me. It has an inscription on the inside that reads "Our family is a circle of love." then by each birthstone th ename is engraved. I have Ray, me, my son, and my daughter. Not much going on here, just my usual.

 

Jen, I'm very glad the worst of Elsie's ordeal seems to be over and that he's healing so well. Yes, I'm sure the many thoughts, prayers, and healing energy directed at him helped in his healing. I'm  so sorry for everything you went through in this ordeal.

 

Sandi, great to see you here. That sure is a funny picture Stripes had you send Sugar!

 

Wendy, great picture of the deer and bird! What a shot that is! You're so funny describing your typing skills! Yes, I laugh but mine aren't much better. I use almost all my fingers but I confess I have to look at the keyboard. I'm such a slow typist too. It takes me many minutes {I'll say 10-15} to get thru a post especially if the thread is a long one like today. Of course, that includes time to go back and get my typos if I catch them.

 

Teri, glad you're having a great day and that the infection is starting to leve. Did you take the antibiotics? Sorry your computer got unplugged. Kittens will get into everything. How goes the house hunting?

 

Kathy, great to see you here. Congratualtions on being a foster and on being a "foster failure"! Seriously, it's great you adopted Cleo and Bella.

 

Sugar, hope you enjoy your company today. Things with your teeth will go well tomorrow. Think positive. Here's a quote for you. "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow." ~ Unknown

 

Donna, sorry about your glasses. Are you able to get another pair? Glad you at least found your computer glasses though I  imagine it is frustratinng  to take them on and off. So far, I can see th ecmputer okay without glasses but I need reading glasses and I'm slightly nearsighted {can't see far away}.

 

Laura, yes, I had a good day. So sorry about Sandy's son. Is he going to be alright?

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Just a quick hello to everyone, I have been quite busy and one of my furbabies at home Madaline is sick. She stopped eating last week and I think she was all bloated up with gas and her tummy was making these very load rumbling and growling noises she seemed very uncomfortable. We took her to the vet and they did an xray and her bowels were inflammed and she did have a lot of gas so now she is taking anti-inflammatories and an antibiotic. We also saw on the xray that she has bad arthritis in her spine and back leg and it is really affecting her as she isn't walking very much (probably adding to the gas) and when she uses the litter box now she has a hard time getting her back legs in so sometimes when she pees it goes over the side because she doesn't get in the box fully. so the vet is looking into putting her on some pain meds but she also takes meds for her chin cysts so we have to make sure they don't conflict. Then to make matters worse they saw on the xray a spot near her heart and lungs they have nothing to compare it to so we have to go back in 4 weeks to have another xray done and compare it to see if it is still there and changing at all. I hate seeing her so depressed looking, I am very worried about her, this morning she hardly ate anything so we may have to go back to the vet tonight.

Jenevieve, I am so sorry to hear about what happened to Elsie, I am happy to hear that he is doing much better. People that abuse animals are disgusting human beings.

Sugar, good luck tomorrow at the dentist, I know you will do just great and let us know how you are doing as soon as you can. I just know Mouse and Chewy will take good care of you.

Wendy, I will see if Alan wants to come to Stripes birthday party and maybe Roxy will come too. I think Teddy, Madaline and Maggie will stay home as they are older and don't really like travelling. Thank you for inviting them.

Darla, that's great that all your cats love the new scratcher. I just got a new one a few weeks ago and they are all loving it too. Your family ring sounds beautiful, that was very sweet of Ray to get that for you.

Sandi, that picture with the cats with the teeth is very funny. I laughed.

Laura, I hope that Sandy's son will be ok, how terrible is that, is he young?

Donna, I am sorry that your glasses are all scratched can you get a new pair? I hope you can get all your insurance stuff straightened out tomorrow at the meeting.

Kathy, that's great that you have two new additions. Funny that you were only supposed to foster them. I don't have any room to foster since I already have 5 of my own but it's probably good that I don't otherwise the same thing would happen to me too.

Teri, I am glad thatyou are feeling a bit better, I am still praying for you that you find the right house very soon.

Shell, let us know how Tiggy is doing. I hope he is better.

Hello Angela, I hope you are enjoying your time with your daughter and grandson.

Hello Abo.

Hope I didn't miss anyone, you all have a great day.

Wendy ,

I have been here about 13 yrs now, non stop. I use to make threads and post to myself,

and then apologize to the group for taking up everybodys time, and not giving them a chance to talk.....

 

About the glasses, this is the third pair I scratched up since I got the coating on it,

and I was led to believe that this last time it was a really good anti-glare coating.

Never again. These glasses are progressives. 3 different lenses in one with no lines.

They are ultra light weight and are transitions. My sister bought this pair for me. I have

been using the lens wipes, but I have used my shirt more than once.

 

My other glasses were bought when I had cheap insurance. They cost nothing. The problem is they are lined bifocals, and I am afraid to walk with them, as I look at the line and feel like I am falling . I went to try them on again, and when I took them out of the case from my pocket

book, the lens fell out, and the screw was missing. I would HAVE to have an extra pair on 'me if I am out and these glasses break. The ones I have on now are computer glasses.

I put them on, and it was like somebody turned on the light. No scratches.

 

I also type with 2 fingers and a thumb. TWICE I spent 5 hours typing on care2,

and lost my posts. This was way back when we had AOL.   We hated them.

 

Sandi, those cats are a riot.

Wendy,

Your eyes sound like they really need some fixing. whew. I have open angle glucoma, and astigmatism in both eyes, and I am very far sighted. 20/400 in both eyes.

 

Michela, It is not likely I will get new glasses , but who knows. These are close to 400.00.

The most expensive part of my glasses is the thin lens, and it has to be thin since my prescription is so strong. When I told the eye doctor that I was driving without glasses he flipped.  He did not want to be on the road with me driving. He said I am ok to wear no glasses around the house because I am going by memory of where things are.

Since I have been keeping them on, I can see that I could not see before. It was amazing how I never aged for years. When I got good glasses I was shocked.

 

Thanks Darla, I am the opposite of you. The closer something is the worst it is for me to see it.

 

Wendy, I am thinking Jimmy might have MS, and I know he has arthritic knees. I looked up the symptoms of MS, and he seems to fit the bill. I thought Parkinsons too. He loses

his balance, and falls, and he has trouble lifting his foot to get up the front step. They he trips. His memory is bad, and gets worse as the day goes on. He stabs himself with his fork

sometimes if his hand is shaking.

 

Hi Sugar

 

Have you seen the new insurance market place???? Oh my gosh is it every confusing.

 

Hi Sandi, Darla and kathy and Tere and Michela and Wendy . I think I covered the hellos.

elsa.jpegJust a note of thanks for everyone's thoughts and kindness.

Elsie is doing very well. His hematoma on his little chest and slight abscess is miraculously GONE!! (due to antibiotics), He still has a slight limb on his hind left leg. He isn't able to scurry up the stairs as he usually does.. At least, not yet. He sorts of trudges and pushes himself with determination.

Despite what is, ..He is in good spirits,.. being his happy ray of sunshine, .. meowing, purring self.

I don't tell her about Care2, Sugar, we just focus on my lessons.



That's good, Darla. I'm not sure. He's still unconscious today.


I'm not sure how old he is, Michela. About my age, it looks like. He's still unconscious and hasn't had any changes yet, so Sandy is still waiting.


I'm sure he will be. He's still unconscious as of Sandy's post today. I had a good day. I went for my walk after breakfast and did my chores. Mom was away all day, playing tennis and she had lunch with Dad when he was on his lunch break. I got caught up on petitions on Causes.

Teri, Teri, so sorry you had to spend a day waiting because of a computer! Computers are nice, but not always dependable. More prayers sent to you to find a new home SOON.

I have to get going. I slept like a baby last night and have accepted the inevitable and that helps emotionally.

I posted a message on care2 help thread one more time to get back to the real me, sugar150. I'll try Eric again next.

I'll post tomorrow hopefully. I will try to get on and vote for our Blind Cat Rescue, it's too early now.

Happy Hump Day everyone, gotta hurry.
