Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Black Beauty was back this morning! Need to ask my neighbor if she's officially adopted Tigger b'cuz I haven't seen her. Still dealing with pain and still building up to my regular dosage on the new medication. Not much going on here, just my usual.

Am running late this morning and it's hard to sit still so can't reply to everyone. Sandi, Wendy, Donna, Kay, Shell, Laura, and Sugar, it's great to see y'all here. Wendy, love the penguin video. Kay, that's quite a list of e-mails. I still couldn't handle the number you get. Good for you for being so involved in all that you are. Laura, glad to hear Aaron doing so well.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Hi Darla,

Sugar must have sent this blast of cold weather and snow to us. For some reason she seems to get it first. It is snowing pretty good now, and is very cold.... The rest of the week is going to be worse than it is now, like in the single digits..

 

I boiled 4 chickens all night long for the cats breakfast. They like it with the broth over it. I remember back when I use to make the pan fried chicken for them. They refused the boiled... they KNOW the difference.....

 

I did all the waters out front too, and put 2 jars of peanutbutter out on the limbs for the birds.... I have been up most of the night. Had to go to the bathroom every hour or half hour. When I wasn't in the bathroom, I was a bathroom mat laying on the couch. They all ran over me all night. Now the bums are sleeping, and I am here with burning eyes.

 

I might grab some home made chicken noodle soup and go to sleep, unless I wake up totally.

Hello everybody, it is bitterly cold here and it is suppose to be here for a week or longer. Yesterday when I got home from work my husband told me that my heated bird bath looked frozen so I went out to check the GFI to see if it had tripped and under my overhang from the kitchen there was a raccoon laying there half on the snow. I knew that he had distemper and I had to call animal control they came and picked him up, he was really sick. Poor little guy, it was so sad. I am glad I found him though or he would have froze to death. This is the second one I have found this winter with distemper. The animal control officer said it's really bad this year. So happy all my furkids have all their shots up to date including distemper.

Sugar, I hope that you feel better soon, maybe after you eat something. That is a strange thing that happened with Mouse and Tiger, was he fine with Mouse after he came back in?

Darla, I hope that soon your pain will be managed by the new meds. That's great that you saw Black Beauty this morning. Hopefully your neighbour has taken Tigger in for good and that's why you haven't seen her.

Wendy, that is wonderful news about your son and his girlfriend getting married, I bet you will have a lot of fun helping with the plans. Congratulations to them. Thank you for the great video about the penguins and squirrels they were both cute. I love watching the squirrels in my yard, on the weekend there was about 30 of them, they love the peanuts and sunflower seeds I put out for them and they clean up anything that falls from the feeders.

Donna, wow every hour you had to go to the bathroom, no wonder you couldn't sleep. The kitties running over top of you certainly wouldn't help either, Lol. Glad your kitties liked the chicken for breakfast, hopefully your soup will help you get some rest. How is Bubba doing?

Sally, I hope you feel better soon, kitty cuddling should help some .

Kay, glad you got all caught up with your emails. That was a lot of emails, wow.

Val, I love the picture of your garden path it is beautiful. So nice to see at this time of year here in the winter. Give Maitland a hug for me. So nice to hear that it is a little cooler, I hope it continues to get better.

Sandi, have a great day and Happy Birthday to your dad. I hope you have a nice lunch together. I bet he will enjoy the party, he deserves it for turning 90.

Hello to Laura, Betty, Penny, Angela and Ashley. I hope I didn't forget anybody, my lunch break is over and I have to go back to work now. Talk to you all soon. For all of you in the cold or really hot stay warm or cool.

Bubba cakes is laying in a cat bed under the kitchen table. The highest he climbs is to the couch... He is a very laid back cat. We are so glad we got him in before this snow storm. It would be so nice if the horse guy breaks down and takes Bubbas friend Blacky in. He has an igloo with only the pad it came with, and it is a large one... Too big to hold the body heat in. I did tell him that so maybe he had a change of heart and did something to keep the kitty warm.

Hey, guys.

Hello all, the snow has really kicked in, sitting at my Hubbys job right at the moment to pick him up. what usually takes 20 minutes took me an hr to get here. Last forcast i just saw is 8-14 inches of snow. Wind chills are supposed to be -10 tonight. The last time we had this kind of bitter cold weather, i worried a lot about big momma. I grabbed her up today & took her into the house & put her into the pens my hubby built for lil pid & trixie (my bottle babies). She doesnt like being held or anything so it was a fun idea of bringing her inside. But shes in, safe & warm. She usually hung out in my shed but it was still so cold in there. The snow was already just about to her back & shes to fat to jump. Anyway almost time to Drive back home, will chat at ya'll later.

Hi, all. Nothing much going on here today. I am saddle sore today, especially in the shoulders. We are having another cold spell tomorrow. I finished working on my story today. I got shot in the leg when we were looking for a suspect we were chasing and Thorin heard the shot and ran upstairs to check on me and he lost his composure briefly when he saw that I was hurt, but got himself under control and helped Oin take care of me before the paramedics arrived, and while he and the rest of the team were waiting for me to come out of surgery, a novice nun was working at the hospital and brought him a cup of tea and he drank it and felt a lot better and told her about the case and she enjoyed hearing about it and then went back to the convent for the evening meal, and Chung, the surgeon who took care of me told Thorin that I had done great in surgery, but needed a transfusion because I had lost a lot of blood, and Kili volunteered and he found out that we were the same blood type, and the transfusion went well, and he felt a bit faint afterwards because he did the transfusion before they had dinner, and Fili had some orange juice and a scone in his day bag and that brought Kili around and they went out to dinner and then came back and Bofur was sitting with me when I came to and he told me what had happened and Thorin came back in and he was happy to see that I was awake and I couldn't resist teasing Kili a bit since I felt better and asked if the transfusion he gave me would turn me into a Dwarf and he and Fili and Thorin laughed and once they settled down, Kili said that I would not turn into a Dwarf and the only thing that blood transfusion would do was help me get back up to my full strength, and that didn't take too long and I was discharged, and Percy, the colleague that James had been sent to find, showed up at Wesley's house one early morning, half dead from getting shot while escaping from S.P.E.C.T.E.R. headquarters and we took him to the hospital and he spent a few weeks there recovering and then, once he was back up to his full strength, we went back to London and he was reunited with his family and James handed in his report of the case, and even though M hadn't asked for more reports, Thorin and his team handed theirs in, and then we went to Heathrow airport for our return home and Dawson and I were about ready to get on our plane and we took our leave of Thorin and the team and Fili and Kili hugged me and they were both a little tearful because this was the longest time that they had spent with me and told them that they would see me again and that they were always welcome at my apartment and that went for the rest of the team as well and that made them feel better and we are all home now and that is the last story. Kip is doing great today. He had some episodes where he was throwing up after eating yesterday, but he is normal today.

Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. It's cooling down here ~ was only 39 on my porch this morning at 6:30 and the expected high is only 69. Will have to wrap my plants later today as tomorrow's low is supposed to be at freezing. Still experiencing pain. Have 4 more days before I can take the full dosage of the new med. Black Beauty was here this morning. Not much going on here, just my usual.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Donna, sorry you're being blasted with cold and snow. Did the cats like their chicken? Osiris eats chicken with me whenever we have it. Had a Marie Callender's Chicken Pot Pie last night for dinner and Kona and Cinder shared my chicken. Sorry you were up most of the night. That really sucks. Glad to hear Bubba is doing so well.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Michela, sorry about the raccoon. Poor little guy. I'm glad you found him when you did. So, was your bird bath frozen? If so, did you get it fixed? I'm hopeful that the pain will be under control when I get up to the full dosage of the med. It's cool you watch the squirrels. They are fun little critters to watch.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wendy, great to see you here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ashley, great to see you here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Shell, sounds like y'all have some rough weather. Glad you got Big Momma in.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Laura, like the story. Glad Kip is doing better today.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Darla, it was frozen and so was the heated bowl for the ferals but the GFI had been tripped, sometimes it does that when it is especially cold but I hit the switch and changed both waters and this morning they were both still working fine. I change them everyday so if it happens again it won't be like that for long. I felt very bad for the raccoon but he was clearly not doing well as I was standing in front of him and he hardly moved. It was a blessing that the water was frozen otherwise I wouldn't have went into the backyard and he would have froze to death for sure as this morning it was -30 C (sorry not sure what that is in F).

Shell, that is great that you got Big Momma in. Maybe it is better to bring her in to get her accustomed to living inside so she can go to a home since you are moving. I am sure she is thankful just to be warm. I wish I could bring my ferals in but they are too feral as I can't touch them. They run if I try even though they have been coming and eating for about 2 years. They are the last ones outside all the rest were just strays and I rehomed them.

Laura, good to hear Kip is doing better today, do you know why he was throwing up?

Donna, that is great to hear that Bubba is doing so well. I hope the other man brings Blacky in or gets him a better shelter. Does he feed Blacky?

Hi Wendy, did you find the thread? I looked too and couldn't find it.

Hi Ashley, how are you doing?

Sally, glad you are feeling a bit better now.

Sugar, I hope you are feeling better too.

Hello to everyone else, hope you and all furbabies are doing well.

I have big momma in a pen my hubby built in the basement. The same friend who adopted Emmet is considering taking her too. We just have to work on her social skills a bit. She is really really enjoying being warm & non frozen water. She's laying in a Box in the pen with a blanket in it.

3 years ago

Glad to hear that big Momma is warm and comfy....

 

Yes, the horse guy has been feeding him. He was going to stop a while back in hopes I would take him, but the kitty did not want to leave. he has an igloo with food. That is all I know.

 

Cats enjoyed their chicken, but tonight they will be getting their canned food.

 

I use a large bucket to put the cans in, and heat them up with hot tap water.

 

Willy Whiz nut is a thief..... He steals all my stuff from the coffee table as soon as I am not looking. He usually does it in the early morning, as I wake up hearing my test strips rolling around the floor. I looked under the couch, and they are not there. He has another spot.....

Good Afternoon to all the members; Donna, Shell, Michela, Darla, Laura, Ashley, Wendy, and Sandi. SHELL......Be careful driving in this terrible weather, I am so glad you were able to get Big Momma in before the weather got worse, and I bvet she is glad now to be in the box with a blanket ...warm. & safe. ......LAURA.....Boy you really keep busy with riding and writing your stories. They sound so interesting, .......DARLA.......I hope you keep feeling better, I take pain meds, but I do not like taking them 4 times a day like they make me sleepy, so I alternate with green gel advil I take pain meds at 6AM and 6PM and Advil at NOON and MIDNIGHT, so I can function during the day. ........MICHELA..... I am so glad to find a fellow squirrel lover. I could watch them all day. Where I have my computer located is in front of the window that faces the front yard and across the street, where we have 10 to 12 Oak Trees and Magnolia Trees, where the squirrel families make their home. I had a run in with a woman yesterday when she let her dog chase the squirrels, If I could walk better I would have gone across the street and dealt with that idiot properly, but all I could do was yell at her and tell her how bad I thought her behavior was. .........DONNA.....That chicken dinner you fixed for the cats sounds very tasty. You need to teach Willy Whiz Nut ...not to take your can of test strips, he needs to find something else to play with and hid. I hope you find them. .....ASHLEY......you need to say more than one line at a time, so we all can get to know you better. I know you want to rack up a lot of points but in order to have a good conversation, you need to give us more to go on. looking forward to hearing from you more in these threads and groups,l you sound like you would be fun to get to know better. ..........SANDI....how are doing without stripes around ? How is Miss Karen doing ? Has she found a new Fur Baby yet ? Tell Miss Karen and Stripes that Coco and Nanni say Hello. .......WENDY.......What is new with you and the Kelly cats? I will close for now, till later I remain, Sincerely Kay M.

Shoot, I have A BANDAID on my little finger and it keeps hitting the wrong key,  like the caps.  Speaking of squirrels, I heard one of the dumbest things on the news today.  Some people are totally nuts!!!  This family had a bird feeder and now they have to take it down or pay $1000 a day!!!!! because it isn't squirrel proof!  I hope I get to hear the results of this.  If anyone does, let me know.  They have had the feeder up I believe for around 15 years.  I wish I knew where it was, I would tell all my squirrels to go over there AND run the anti squirrel people Away.  We are becoming a craZY PLAce, I am totally sick of this kind of stuff.

 

Donna, I wouldn't send this kind of weather to anyone other than the squirrel hating people, Those squirrels' ancestors probably fed them long ago.  if the weather is coming from here, you will have more for probably over a week still, that's all I've seen in the weekly forecast.  We are due for more light snow showers tonight.  It was -3 last night and the high today around 15.  And lots of wind,.  -6 tonight. 
Today was the first morning I didn't really want to go outside before daylight and do the feeding of deer, squirrels and birds. 

 

Wendy, love the Basenji report.  I will go to the other sites you listed later.  I've always been able to trust my Basenjis, Senji, Heidi and of course Chewy.  Except around food,

 

Everyone I hate typing with this bandaid.  I have to keep correcting, at least most of it.  Don't ask me how I got this type of type, I didn't do it on purpose.

 

Darla, glad Black Beauty is coming around and all the others like big momma are in and safe from the cold,.  little Joe has become a house cAT.  And Tiger and Mouse are okay not.  i apologized to Mouse.

 

 

have a good evening everyone, i give  up.

I'm glad you liked it, Darla.


I'm not sure, Michela. Mom seemed to think that he had eaten some bugs and they weren't out of his system yet.


Yes, I do, Kay.


I went for my walk after lunch and another of Vincinte's mares had foaled. This time it was For Free, and the foal is doing great. For Free is really uncomfortable when the foal nurses. The foal has a white blaze on its forehead, so it looks like full blazes are in this year as facial markings for foals. Mom and Dad and I will be going to Orlando tomorrow. We modified a few things. There's nothing I really want to do at Downtown Disney, so we are not going to eat at Raglan Row, but going to eat at Cantina Laredo instead since I didn't get to go last week, and then we will go shopping at Millenia Mall, and then to Animal Kingdom Lodge for dinner at their buffet, Boma, and I will be home later than usual.

3 years ago

 Just hello, no ranting today.  Still hard to type with a bandaid on my finger though.

 

Laura, how many foals are they expecting this year?  I hope all are born with no problems. 

 

Everyone I heard that seniors are so full of knowledge from years of data accumulation that some times it is a little hard to find the path to a particular item.  There was quite a discussion on Fox the other day.  We are like a living hard drive that becomes just a little slower like a computer does when kind of full of data.  I thought that was interesting.  I think it was on Fox.  That's about the only channel I normally watch other than A&E for the Duck Dynasty.  And the TVLand channel for Gunsmoke and other clean shows like Andy Griffitt.

 

Darla is today National reading day?  Weather is still gross and will be for the next week and maybe even longer.  It is great reading weather.  I just finished Christy.

 

Take care everyone.  Hope you all are keeping warm and cozy.

Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Black Beauty was here this morning then, after she ate, a large, tabby cat came to eat. He's one I saw quite awhile back I believe. He's obviously feral not a stray as he runs when I get too close so I just watched him from my side of the porch. It's supposed to get down to freezing tonight so I've already watered and wrapped my plants in preparation. Not much going on here, just my usual.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Michela, glad you got the waters changed out. -30C is -22F and that's just way to cold for me. I'm glad the raccoon didn't freeze to death. That would've been even sadder than his having distemper.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Shell, glad to hear Big Momma's doing well inside and that you might have a home for her.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Donna, glad the cats enjoyed their chicken. I'm sure they'll be happy with their canned food too. Sorry, Willy is taking your test strips. Guess you'll have to keep them somewhere else.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kay, I'm starting to feel better. My pain meds don't make me sleepy but I'd take them even if they did as I deal with a lot of pain if I don't take my meds. Glad you have your pain meds worked out in a way that works for you. Glad you're able to watch the squirrels from your computer room window. I watch the squirrels in the trees out by the pool during the summer. They're so much fun to watch. Glad you went after that woman who let her dog chase the squirrels.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sugar, that is rather dumb that those people can't have a regular bird feeder up. Are the squirrel proof ones really squirrel proof anyway? Seems to me that they are a smart bunch of critters. Sorry you have a bandaid on your finger and it keeps hitting the wrong keys. Yes, today is National Reading Day.  That's cool news about seniors.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Laura, hope y'all enjoy Orlando. How cool that another mare has had her foal and that the foal's doing well. Sorry she's uncomfortable when the foal nurses. Hope that eases up for her.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Just a quick Hello, Its -7 here today. Still have a sore throat, so just going to do doing. Love to all.

3 years ago

Hi Darla and Sandi.  Darla that stray/feral tom will really appreciate his meal tonight if it is going to get cold.  I look out there and see the poor birds and feel so bad.  Of course I am feeding them but they just look so cold.  The deer are eating more, but don't seem to mind the cold.  They are playful still so they still have plenty energy. I have never heard of a feeder that the squirrels couldn't finally find a way to raid it.  The bandaid is still on, but tomorrow I will take it off!  I am tired of backspacing and correcting.

 

Sandi, Take care of yourself.  And Stripes of course. 

 

Has anyone ever woken up with a sore leg?  Not a knee really, more like a sore tendon or ligament around the knee area.  I need a cane almost.  I never did anything to hurt it, at least nothing that I noticed.  Would arthritis come on like that out of the blue?  Or have I just been sitting too much since the bad weather, or is the cold hurting it?  If this happened to both, I would be in trouble!

 

What is your best guess?

 

Goodnight everyone,

Good Afternoon Ladies; Sorry I am so late, computer on the fitz again, After I made my rounds last night I found The group Friends from the Heart, and the Thread Wendy;s Chit Chat Room, and guess who was there. JEN P.was checking in to let us all know she is alive and everything that she has been going thru since we last heard from her at Thanksgiving, It would worth it for you all to go and read it. I WILL NEVER COMPLAIN ABOUT MY LIFE AGAIN...What this beautiful lady is being put thru is criminal. I made a few comments, and gave out my green stars., stopped by a few profile pages, to add comments, and then COCO and I went to bed. Well when we got up this morning, and log in, there was nothing from Care 2 on my computer email inbox. no 100 points for logging in over 100 plus days, no green stars or points, no messages, postings, comments, daily action, click to donate, petitions to sign, nothing zero. so I went to see if my profile page was still there and it was so I checked all of my settings, and information, and everything was correct. I logged off re booted, nothing, I changed browsers three different times, Firefox, Google, desk top and chrome, Internet Explorer, nothing worked, so then I went to care 2 support wrote them about my problem, I have not heard back from them yet. so I am once again going group to group, thread to thread, and checking each one everyone so I do not miss anything It may take a while but I will get thru them, till later onward and upward. Sincerely Kay M. ( PS stay safe and warm, at home please. It looks dangerous on the weather channel.

Hey, Sugar. 25 are due.



Hey, Darla. We did. We just got back in a few minutes ago. We went to Cantina Laredo and lunch was great. I had lamb tacos. That is a new dish they just introduced. We went over to Millenia Mall afterwards and I had a chocolate strawberry from Godiva, then walked a few times around the whole mall, then we went to Animal Kingdom Lodge and had dinner at Boma and it was yummy. I got a new glass mug from Teavana since my old mug is starting to fade a bit from being washed in the dishwasher so much.

Good Evening ladies; I need your help, I posted on this thread today, but it does not show that I received the 5 points and it does not show that the posting is accepted, because at the bottom it does not have the little box where you cn award green stars. I do not know wht is going on and do not know where to turn to get answers. If any on3 knows of a bug on care 2 and if some one is working on it let me know on my profile page, because I am not receiving any incoming emails or postings in my in box from any of my groups or threads. no petition request, no articles, so I could comment, I am going to back to care 2 support and see if they picked up my help request yet, Sincerely worried Kay M.

Hi Kay, you know I don't understand what is important about all the points.  I never even knew you got points for posting and I really could care less as long as I don't lose my posts as I often do because of the little keyboard on this lap top.  I have typed for years, more than I care to remember, and had no trouble until I got a lap top.  The keys are just a tad too close or something.  I also don't want postings to come into my inbox.  I have enough regular emails and it is so cold and miserable right now and for another week that I guess I am crabby!  Sorry, but I really don't give a hoot about points.  I just enjoy the news from everyone and their furkids.  Just hang in there, relax and the points will come.  Give Coco a hug and forget the points.  As Phil says, be Happy, happy, happy! 

 

Laura, that's a lot!  I know you are going to enjoy meeting each and every one.  There's a neat old cowboy song about being on the streets of Laredo.  Love it.

 

I'm hoping I can stay off politics today.  But it's hard when people like Wendy Davis and her team is making fun of paraplegics.  She finally apologized but I don't think it will help her in her up coming election.  The truth is out how she really feels.  Texas is better than that.  I have always loved the state of Texas and if I were young and had enough money I would probably move there.  Hey Darla, we could be neighbors!  I could take turns feeding Black Beauty and the stray tom who showed up again.  I wish Black and White would!  I'm sure he is on the farm way behind me that has a couple of barns and a colony of cats who are fed daily.  At least that is what I am praying that is so.  Last night I even put a bowl of cheaper cat food out for the raccoon because of the cold but he didn't show.  And speaking of politics, some families are getting fined $100 a day because their grass is too brown.  They are in a drought situation but their neighors don't care, they want green grass!!!  Goodness I am glad these nut cases don't live near me!

Of Course they don't want to live near me so it is mutual!  I've naturalized at least half of my property for wildlife. 

 

Life is good even if it is cold and miserable outside.  I finished a book and have started on another.  Made good soups and a great pot roast.  And I am so happy that Little Joe has become a house cat!  He begs to go out, I open the door he steps out, looks around and comes right back in.  Mouse does the same.  We are due for another 2 to 4 inches of snow early tomorrow.  For me it's okay but I feel for those who are stuck in with maybe not enough food or heat.  For those with wood burning stoves/fireplaces I have lots of wood but no way to get it to anyone.  One family picked up a couple of pick up loads last year, but no one has this year.  Right around me I know all are well, but just a few miles away, I don't know.  To buy wood is terribly expensive.  Mine is free for the work involved in cutting to size.

 

Mouse will be on soon, but I have to leave for now,  Kay and Laura, have a great day.

Kay, when I look at your post I do see the button to give you a green star. Why you are not getting your points I do not know. I hope everything clears up with your computer.

Sugar, I really don't give a hoot about points either, every once in a while I will use them when I think about it which isn't very often. I am sorry to hear about your sore leg/knee maybe you slept on it in a weird way. I hope it gets better quickly. I know what you are talking about with the birds and squirrels, I put food out everyday but they still look cold and I feel bad for them but I feel really bad for my ferals. I basically live in my kitchen at night just waiting at the door for them to come. I always leave out dry food in a bowl but I like to give them warmed up can food to give them more energy and warm up their tummy, but they can't stay for long with this cold so I have to wait and watch and when I see them coming I get the food ready right away. I can only give them a half a can at a time because it freezes so quickly. This weather isn't good for anybody except polar bears . Glad that you are liking that Little Joe is spending a lot of time inside. I hope Black and White shows up soon and that he is ok. You are right this is a crazy world we live in, fining people because they don't have a squirrel proof bird feeder, they would hate me I have a huge area just for the squirrels and put lots of food for them. People can't do anything anymore without somebody else complaining about it, geesh!!!!

Laura, glad that you enjoyed your day yesterday. Wow 25 foals due that is a lot. I bet every one of them will be so cute and you will enjoy watching them grow.

Sandi, I hope you feel better soon, having a sore throat is no fun. I hope Stripes is giving you some cuddle therapy.

Shell, that is great that you might have a home for Big Momma, she deserves a nice warm home.

Donna, I hope you found your test strips??

Darla, I hope that your pain is starting to go away.

Hello Wendy, Sally, Betty, Penny and Angela. If I missed anyone I am sorry, I have to go back to work and finish up everything quickly I have to go after work to help set up for a big adoption day tomorrow for the rescue that I volunteer with we are going to have about 30 kitties up for adoption. We are going to set up everything tonight so tomorrow the kitties can just go right in. I am going to pick up two big black kitties named Moe and Mr.Big for the adoption as their foster dad doesn't have a car. Wish us luck please that lots of kitties get furever homes.

Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Well, we got down to at least 28F last night as that was the temp at 5:00 this morning. By 7:30 it had "warmed up" to 30. We had sleet most of the night and there's ice/frost on the ground this morning. Some of my plants came unwrapped so I'll probably lose them. I fell back to sleep this morning not waking 'til 7:30. Despite that Black Beauty was waiting on me this morning as was that large tabby who I think I'll call Bear. I was just thinking about him and that's the name that came to mind. Not much going on here, just my usual.

Sugar, yes, I'm sure that Bear did appreciate his meal. He ran from me this morning but only as far as the opposite side of the porch. I was trying to put his food in front of him but that wasn't working. I'm sure he found his bowl {I put out 2 bowls this morning} after I came in. I hope so anyway. My neighbor does still have the shelter out for any cat who wants to use it. I'm so glad you feed the birds and the deer. I'm sorry the birds look so cold. Is Foxy still coming around?  Sorry about your leg. I have no idea what it could be. Take an anti-inflammatory and see if that helps. So you broke down and fed the raccoon but he didn't show huh? Well, I'm sure he will if you keep putting food out. Being fined for brown grass is ludicrous especially in a drought situation! I think it's cool that you've naturalized half your property for wildlife. I'd love to be neighbors with you. So, Black and White still hasn't shown up huh? Well, we'll just pray he found his way to that farm. Glad Little Joe has become a house cat.

Kay, sorry you're having trouble with Care2 and not getting your credits. I am not getting those ones that pop up for 50 credits that have a petition with them. I don't know what to tell you. The 100 credits over 100 days is for clicking to donate not just signing in. At least that's my understanding. I hope you get everything figured out. Your post showed up and has the send green star link below it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Laura, wow, 25 foals are due! That's quite a lot. Hope they're all born with no problems. Glad y'all had a good time in Orlando.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Michela, you're so sweet to wait up and feed your ferals warmed up canned cat food. That's cool that you feed the squirrels too. My pain is just about back under control. I have a couple more days before I'm up to my regular dosage of the new med. I think everything will be alright then. Hope that the group you volunteer for adopts out lots of kitties.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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

Good Afternoon to all the ladies of the group, Thank you all so much for your help, You are right, Just relax, be happy, do not worry about a thing, Be grateful for my life, and use my energy to help others that are less fortunate than myself. I know when I come here, you all will set me straight. and help me re focus my priorities. and put everything in the proper order. Have a lovely day, stay inside, be warm, and safe., Sincerely Kay M.

Kay you and Coco stay in and keep warm also.  I do dislike the terrible cold we are having, but looking at the bright side I am enjoying staying home.  It is pretty back here too.  I love making tracks in the snow.  Chewy loves to run and plow up the snow with his nose when it isn't too cold.  We went to the pet store and a ran a couple other errands today.  Chewy only wore his sweater today as we weren't walking so didn't need his windbreaker.  All my furkids said to tell Coco hello and am looking forward to being with her again.

 

Hi Wendy.  How are you and the Kelly Cats doing?  We are trying to keep pipes from freezing and bursting again.  I mostly went out today to get the car warm and put back in the garage to help warm things up.  We're due snow again starting later tonight.  There doesn't seem to be any answer to the problems of the world. 

 

Hi Michela, food freezes quickly here too right now.  If Black and White or any other stray shows up and I see them I would try to get warm food to them, otherwise just bowls of dry food which at least keeps them going.  I have left the pet door unlocked so B&W can come in for food and water and bed if he shows up.  He knows the way in.   The deer haven't been here today.  My twins from last year have been of course.  They always are here.

 

Hey Darla, glad Black Beauty is showing every morning now.  You are getting some cool weather too!  Does this happen very often?  This is very rare for us, 20s and 30s is quite normal, but this below zero isn't.  The high today is close to 20 which is 11 degrees warmer than yesterday but the wind chill is something else again.  I hope the little birds are using the roosting boxes I put up for them.  There is room for several little birds to roost together on wooden dowels.  Also there are several houses they can use.  I have lots of natural cover for them too.

 

Everyone have a great night.

Hi, all. It was cold again today. I went for my walk before lunch and saw Glorious Star and her new foal. It is cute, and it is very plain, no markings or anything. Tomorrow night, Mom's friend Tami comes, but I won't be able to take her to see Desolation Of Smaug like we planned because it is not playing anymore.

3 years ago

Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. I checked my plants this morning and I definitely lost one. It is a plant I called a snake plant but which my sister-in-law told me is actually called a mother-in-law tongue. Anyway, I lost it several years ago but the roots must've been okay b'cuz it "came back" so that is what I'm hoping will happen again. It was 34 this morning at 6:30 though it's supposed to get up to 66 today. Black Beauty met me outside this morning but I didn't see Bear. Maybe he came by later. I can't see out on the porch so I wouldn't know. Not much going on here, just my usual.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wendy, yep, I'm sure Black Beauty has spread the word about free food here. Like I said above, I've for sure lost one plant. I couldn't tell about my 2 violas though. Will have to wait and see on those. I think this winter's going to be hard on my plants.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kay, hope your Care2 problems clear up and everything goes back to normal. Y'all stay  warm too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sugar, winters like the one we are having now are rare. My poor plants aren't doing so well even though I'm wrapping them. I'm also glad Black Beauty is back to coming everyday. I'm sure the birds are using the roosting boxes, houses, and natural cover that you have out. I have one bird house hanging up in a tree. I need to have Ray clean it out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Laura, glad you saw Glorious Star and her foal. I'm sure the foal was cute. Sorry y'all can't go see Desolation of Smaug. Guess y'all will have to choose another movie to go see.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Good morning Laura and everyone.  More snow here and artic blasts again for a week still.  Who knows after that?

 

We're staying in and doing  housework during commercials.  We  are watching the Godfather for the one thousandth time I guess, there is nothing else.

 

Take care all,

Hi Darla, almost through 2 Godfathers.

 

I have a snake plant too, (or mother in law's tongue) as it is also called around here.  it is really old.  I rescued it from my TKD teacher who inherited it from his mom when she passed.  It is really healthy now and growing good.  Wosie is posing next to it.

Well good night everyone, but first has anyone heard from Teri lately?

He sure was, Darla. I had a great day today. Dad had a tennis match at Golden Ocala and and I went with him and I sat out on the patio and read and one of the women was watching her friend play and she had the cutest little Papillion puppy and I played with the puppy for a long time. I have just finished getting the house nice for Tami's arrival.

Happy Sunday all! 

 

It is going to be -6, -10 and -4 for the next 3 nights!  What's everybody else's?

 

How is Ray Darla?  And the strays and yourself?  And of course your little ones. Tell Bear and Black Beauty they are very lucky to have a meal.

 

I can't believe it but the deer just ate the birdfood I put on the ground for the ground feeders.  And I just fed those critters!  The birds will just have to depend on the ones eating from the feeders to spill a little.  Money is just too tight to put more out.  One of my twins was out there first this morning and I knew her sister would be there in a minute so I put lots out there and before I was anywhere near the basement door, there were 5 more!  I did take enough out that everyone got some plus then they hit the bird feeders.

 

Puppies are so cute Laura.  My neighbor had a papillion and she was the cutest thing.  All puppies are cute and adults can be one of many things, regal, playful, handsome, even cute and many other things too.  I can't decide what to call Chewy, I'm kind of upset with him right now.  When my back was turned, he ate 3 bowls of cat food!  It's no wonder he is FAT!  It isn't good for him but he is very stubborn about some things, like stealing cat food.  I've tried all kinds of things to stop him.  Kitty gates which he just puts his nose and head under and lifts it up high enough to get to the food.  I have thought about buying a bag of cheap cat food and just dumping it all down in a bucket and just see how much he will eat.  Maybe he will eat enough to make him sick and dislike cat food there after.  He stops eating when I yell NO, but then he is back when I turn around.  No doesn't last long for him.  Any ideas, anyone?

 

I checked the temp in the garage, it is 40 degrees which keeps things okay.  Great little heater.  To keep water flowing at night I am doing any laundry I have and running the dishwasher.  Also the dryer helps too as I have it exhausting in the garage during the winter.  I can't find much more dirty things to wash by now.  I hate to wash Kenny's rug cause he loves it so, but I think tonight is the night!  Or maybe I should save it for the -10 night.

 

I am going to try and get out and go to church this morning.  Wish me luck.  I am taking my boots with me in case I have to walk back. 

 

Donna, Do you have any of the weather I sent you?  This most recent batch is on it's way.  Say a prayer that God warms us up a little.  Just a little!

 

Again, happy Sunday all.

Good morning all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great.Things are good here. It was 44 on our porch at 6:30 this morning with an expected high of 77 today. Tomorrow's expected temps are 52/30 and Tuesday's are 39/25! So, I'll be wrappinng my plants later today. Black Beauty met me at the door this morning. I didn't see Bear though. Maybe he comes by later. I've started my usual dosage of that new med today and my pain seems to be under control again. Not much going on here, just my usual.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sugar, one of Ray's favorite movies is the Godfather trilogy. Love your snake plant. Mine was big like that too. I'm really upset that I lost it. I just hope the roots are still good and it'll grow back. Ray's doing good ~ enjoying his long weekend since he didn't go to work on Friday. The cats are all good too. I've got 3 of them here in the computer room with me ~ Shasta's on the printer, Cinder's on the computer chair, and Scamp's on the weight bench. So, the deer are eating the bird seed you put on the ground? Guess they're really hungry. And Chewy ate 3 bowls of cat food? Silly dog. Can you not put the food up on a table or shelf out of his reach? Let the cats eat up high. Or do you have a cat who can't jump up? Hope you make it to church.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Laura, glad you had a great day. It's great you got to play with the Papillion puppy. Puppies are adorable. It's good you got the house clean for Tami's arrival.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

They sure are, Darla. This little papillion was a sweetie. She had a cute little jacket on. The woman that owns her fed her some of the apple she was eating and told me that she loves fruit. Three bowls of cat food? That's too much.



They sure are, Darla. She came and had dinner and then went to bed.


There was a double foaling last night. Gran Parshita had a foal, and so did Alabama Charm, and she refused to bond with her foal and won't have anything to do with him and her maternal instinct has not kicked in and she refuses to have him anywhere near her, not even to nurse, so Byron and the guys have to chain her up so the little one can nurse. They might have to get a surrogate mare for him, but that will take a month or so. I found out that Desolation Of Smaug is coming out on d.v.d. on April 8th.

Good Evening Everyone; today is Sunday 1/26/14 time 9;15 PM Central time USA. I am glad to finally be back in to check what is going on. I decided a couple days ago that I was going to put my computer,browser,care 2 systems problems out of my mind and use my energy to concentrate on helping some one else worst off than me. So I have been on the phone, and the computer, asking everyone in my family, close and extended and all of my friends in my address book, and Christmas card list, if they knew of anyone who lives in New Mexico, that could help Jen P. get around to get boxs so she can pack to move, also, I have them checking to see if they can find any apartments, townhouses, or single homes that will rent to her and her 2 kittens ( Elsie, and Coco ) Also I am looking into seeing if we can find any agency that will help her fight her eviction notice, I have not heard back any promising news yet, But I am not going to give up. There is already a petition here on Care 2 trying to help find a home for a lady in California, who has 5 dogs and needs a home, so we can not start another petition now for JEN. can we ????? Well that is where everything stands for right now, I just wanted to check in on all of you all to make sure you are staying safe and warm inside your homes. In case I do not get by later, let me just say now Good Night, and Sweet Dreams, till tomorrow. I hope things will be better. Oh has anyone heard from Teri ? how is she and her family doing? Have they gotten into their new home yet? I will check in tomorrow for an update, Sincerely Kay M. ( COCO's NANNI )

Hello all, I have been busy being captivated by fab photography pictures, and ran out of time to chat, we are all well thanks Sugar, I sent a message to Teri in her thread, wishing her well etc, just hope she is busy moving finally,.

My bed is calling,- so glad everyone seems fine, apart from weather probs, Sugar I love being snowed in, means duvet days watching tv, cause no-one will visit ?. No snow for us, just more flippin wild winds and terrential rain!, you watch come summer and a hot July we will have a drought situ, hmmmm??

Took a weeks meals to Keith, I cooked up a storm, casseroles , chicken , beef, lamb, (separate) and for tomos, cheese potato, bacon  tom pie, with fresh salad, then a few small dishes of fresh fruit cocktail, Keith can't be bothered to cook, but I told him, "thats all well and fine, but you still have to eat you idiot, I will be over tomos (today) with meals, no arguments" he enjoyed his sunday lunch, and I froze the casseroles, so I know he has a home cooked meal when he needs one.

.shattered, hey Buni found some info for all cats, -speaking of Buni, whole lotta of scratching going on, - flea visitors, so he is at the groomers tomos, for a bath, brush and flea treatment, and worm treatment, Eric was wrestling with him, so he is going to, then Jimi and Mini, bang goes Mick's bonus he he he, as I said, just think if you hadn't got the bonus, we would be less well off? there is always a positive way to look at things, well nearly always ;

Chat more tomos, love to all x wendy k x & kelly cats xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
