After having so many people admire my pictures on my profile someone suggested a "Pets" topic. Gas Buddy suggested I start it here. Here goes!

howdy all..

Sneakers: woohoo Tiger is freeeee ; )

wonder if Tommy knew what he was doing-lol..

i've been told by DJ's vet techs that cat food is good for dogs, but not necessarily the other way around, because of the extra meat protein and taurine that dog food does not have..

don't ya just love the "call from the authorities"..

DJ says howdy to all-it's cold again-mid 30s, and she loves it..

have a great Saturday 2s & 4s..

Tiger had to have some stitches when he got neutered a week ago Monday. The stitches come out this afternoon.

Tommy was supposed to be neutered this morning but the BFF noted him meowing and she took him out of the spare bedroom. Tommy, of course, ran to the cat food dish and pigged out, ruining the "no food after midnight" surgical prep. Tommy had to be rescheduled to the 9th of April. I will make sure that the BFF knows this time not to take Tommy out of the spare bedroom. I fed Tommy soem cheese this morning, and he didn't seem to like it. Tiger and the dogs love cheese.

Ritalin is fine even after eating cat food. I read an article on cats and dogs eating each others' food. Came to the conclusion that you just as well feed both of them cat food as cat food has extra meat protein and supplementation with the amino acid taurine that dog food doesn't.

Rocky goes in for a dental cleaning on the 10th of April. I need to tell the BFF that he's going so everything is lined up this time.

Wally (Wally is not a pet, he is the automatic pool cleaner) just fired a burst of water into the air. It's almost warm enough to swim in the pool.

On the "call the authorities" front, I got a visit from a Texas Adult Protective Services caseworker Tuesday afternoon. She soon figured out that I was having my health care needs taken care of, I was getting fed, there was a roof over my head, I wasn't disabled, and I had retirement income. My BFF says her parents were responsible for making a claim I was getting neglected.

boy did it monsoon on us this morning-if anything was gonna leak, it woulda leaked today..it reached 79° here today-way to warm for March..

wow-75° in Detroit this time of year ??..i understand about not wanting to be in the rafters in the heat-i don't care for that either..

we are supposed to have a daylight high of 52° tomorrow-i can deal with that temp better than 79..

have a great weekend..

have a great Friday 2s and 4s ; )

The BFF is back again.

Given the disagreements between the BFF and my other housemate, the BFF's half-brother's girlfriend called the cops. The cops came over and did a welfare check on me Saturday. I got a lot of questions. The officer was kind of perplexed that I'd give my housemate some of my credit cards, but it's easier than having to go to Home Depot all the time to buy him stuff for the house. (I have debated putting him on my American Express Card as an authorized user.) I was asked if he bought any computers or TV sets and I said the TV in the living room but he had my OK to get it. (When I wrote that, I just realized I forgot about the one in their bedroom. He had the OK to get that one too.)

Rocky barked, Ritalin got in the way, and the cats crawled up into my lap.

They're forecasting 75 °F and lower humidity today, So the door will likely be open today.

We've been keeping the door to the patio wide open, thereby allowing the kitties to carry in their trophies (frogs, snakes, etc.). But we finally decided on the first day of spring that it was hot enough to use the air conditioning.
Later today we'll be using the air conditioning because they're predicting rain and it will be a sauna bath outside.

The BFF is gone again. Her Mom says they have enough pets and they can't keep Rocky. I like Rocky so he may be sleeping under my bed from now on.

I'm going to be taking care of the cats (Tiger and Tommy) now. AJ can't stand cats. He can't stand snakes either and the cats bring in snakes and play with them.

Hi everyone! And especially all the kitty babies and puppy dogs, Quincy and Checkers say hi!

10k - I know you'll be sad to hear this, but on the first day of spring, our kids had a snow day. 4-6" of the wet, white flakes, came down all day and are still coming. But it will be gone tomorrow as the temps climb into the high 40's. Please don't cry....

I got a phone call from the veterinarian's office reminding me that Tommy goes in to be neutered in a week and he needs to go through the usual pre-anesthetic rigamarole of nothing to eat after midnight. (He can have water which is better than they do for human patients.)

Tiger's doing well, he's sleeping on the sofa right now.

A few minutes ago, Tiger and Tommy were in my lap and they were licking each other. Then, Tommy got tired of being in my lap and he hopped down. Tiger, on the other hand, is still there.

Tiger has a three-day course of cat meloxicam to help hold down any postoperative discomfort. I've had meloxicam, it's good stuff.

Me: "It says to give it to him with food by squirting it on his food."
BFF: "He just ate."
BFF then squirts the needleless syringe in his mouth.
BFF: "I don't think he liked the taste."

Rocky looked at Tiger and didn't know what to make of him with a "satellite dish" (to use the BFF's description) on his head. Rocky did sniff at Tiger, however.

All the cats are in the house and all the dogs are in the back yard.

The veterinarian told me Tommy is a very healthy cat. All the blood work came back in tolerance. That's better than the blood work I had in October, it was all messed up but then they were looking at all sorts of genetic traits for cardiovascular risk.

Even though he isn't broken, we're going to get Tommy fixed on the 27th. I wanted it done ASAP as my BFF was complaining that he sprays her clothes with cat pee.

The BFF is back for now!

I was talking to my Mom on the way back from the veterinarian this morning. (Hands-free phone, of course.) I'd dropped off Tiger to be neutered and I was on the way back home.

Mom asked me what I found out at the veterinarian. I said there wasn't anything to find out, he was being neutered.

The veterinary assistant did tell me that Tiger was in very good condition.

Tiger is back from the veterinarian with some stitches on his butt end area. When I was a kid, I helped castrate pigs and occasionally I had to go up and ask Mom for a needle and thread to sew up one of them. Tiger will get to wear an Elizabethan collar for the next ten days so he doesn't chew the stitches.

Tiger's roaming around the house with the Elizabethan collar banging into things. One thing he can't do is get under the dining room chairs any more.

I had Tommy lying on me but he got up. He gets to go to the veterinarian at 4:30 PM.

Ritalin is at the veterinarian right now. He's had his shots, he's in for a microchipping and parasite prevention.

Rocky was supposed to have a dental cleaning but he was AWOL this morning.

Tiger is confined in the guest bathroom because he needs to stay NPO before his morning surgery. When I went in there (my housemate has the master bedroom because there used to be two of them and one of me), Tiger was trying to fly the coop. I wonder if they'll send him home with an Elizabethan collar as I think they're cute.

Evening all! I think Checkers made the mess initially. He perches on the edge of the pan to poop, as he stands on one foot. (These dang rescue babes). I think he knocked the litter out, and Quincy peed in it on the floor. Probably a group effort.

My housemates had a falling out and the BFF went back to her Mom's house. And now we're planning to cut the pets back to Ritalin and Tiger. The others (Callie, Rocky, and Tommy) are planned to go to her Mom's house.

Callie climbed up in my remaining housemate's bed and she got put in a box and dropped on the front porch of her Mom's house.

Rocky was nestled where I wanted to sit. He started baring his teeth at me and then he tried (not very hard) to bite me. I ended out taking the bag that I put my pills in and using it to nudge Rocky off the sofa.

Evening all. I have a really nice vet story to share. Just when you think their expenses are too high, something nice like this happens. First I must tell you about our morning, before we went to the vet. I had Prescription Science Diet food, to take back to the vet, 2 bags, each different types. They will let you return opened bags, for credit, if your pets don't eat it. I had a $20 gift certificate to print off the computer that was going to expire in April, from the vet office. We use a VCA animal hospital. They are typically expensive but I really love my vet there. I won't go anywhere else.

I came downstairs, it smelled like cat pee. ((Oh No!!!)). Walked in to the kitchen, a little pan had been spilled and there was more litter on the floor than in the box. Then, someone had peed in the litter on the floor. We had about an hour before we had to leave. Had to get the kitchen floor cleaned, mopped, vacuumed, and descented. I had to completely change my clothes thinking I smelled like pee. Had to clean the mat under the box. Husband then continued to vacuum the rest of the downstairs. We got Quincy in his carrier, gave Chex some treats and explained we'd be gone awhile with his brother and barely left in time to get there. Forgot the bags of food, never printed the certificate. I found the certificate on my phone in the email and saved it to my notes. Thankfully Quincy just has allergies. Something they are seeing more and more of with cats and dogs. He and his brother Chex, got cat toys from the technician, Julie. When we got to the cashier, they honored my copy/pasted certificate and I told them I forgot the food, but would bring it this coming week. They gave me the return credit already, $41.16, for one bag I had bought there. My bill for today's office visit was $5 and change! How awesome is that!!

We just had the first thunderstorm in the new house. (There may have been some during November and December, when the weather was bad I stayed cocooned in my old apartment.)

Rocky doesn't like thunder, he was barking and pawing at the BFF's bedroom door. I just heard the bedroom door open and then slam shut.

GM: i got friends and family in Michigan, and they feel like you do-that winter is not done yet..at least y'all are getting a reprieve somewhat..i bet that was a great ride y'all had out around the city ; )
the weatherdude here says his 14 day forecast could be interesting around day 10 or 12-heck, they can't even predict 2 days out, and now they are trying to predict 10 days-hahaha..i think winter is done here-we will get more cold weather, but as far as snow, i don't think so..

have a great Wednesday 2s & 4s..

Greetings my pet admiring friends!

Sneakers, I hope they don't give Tiger one of those silly collars after he's fixed. How humiliating! When our cats got fixed they had laser declawing done too. When they came home they looked like they were karate experts. They had a pain patch around their middle, held in place with sticky gauze wrap. It looked like they were black belts.

10k - our snow is about gone on the sunny side of the house but in the back, that will be there for weeks. I am very happy to see it go, but those snow piles will be there until mid April I imagine.

I heard from Calinda- she was in the hospital too. Don't know the details yet.

Hi magpie, I did see your message, but just never got around to responding. I'm so happy to hear your mom is doing better.

GM- thanks for hanging out with us here. I don't have a lot of ambition after I relapsed, so I don't post much of anything any more. I appreciate your loyalty so 10k has someone to talk to.

Good night all my puppies and kitty friends!

Going to be busy Monday the 16th.

Bright and early in the morning, Rocky will be going in for a dental cleaning and Tiger will be going in to be neutered.

Then, in the afternoon, Ritalin and Tommy will be going in for a checkup and vaccinations. Ritalin may be getting microchipped.

Good morning everyone:

10k: It was a very nice somewhat warm day for Michigan yesterday, Don't really no what the high was but it melted most of the snow off the roofs. Still lots of snow hiding the grass though. Highs in the 40s again today so it will melt more. I just got a feeling we will get another big snow before we're done though. The wife and I really enjoyed it took a long ride around the city.

Hope everyone has a great day today 2s and 4s..

hello pets...and GasMiser ; )

GM: i'm a snow lover, so i hate it when they are wrong on the snow forecasts, which happens too frequently for me-hehe..but this time of year, when the long range forecast rules out any chance of snow, i'm ready for sunshine and 70°..today was not quite as nice as yesterday-it finally did reach 66°, but we were socked in with those really thick, ugly clouds all day..pretty much the same thing for tomorrow, then it's gonna rain for a week-sighhhh..DJ enjoyed it-she just conked out on the lawn for most of the day..i hear ya on the melting snow-our parking lot piles will be gone by the time the rain hits 'em, cuz there ain't much left of 'em..hope your day was a keeper ; )

have a great Tuesday 2s and 4s..

howdy mags, GM..

mags: wow, prayers for your mom-hope she will be ok..maybe the best prescription is a 6 lb doggie wagging her tail, jumping on her bed, and being fed and watered by her bedside..you are so correct in saying they can sense when something is wrong..also glad to hear y'all are getting sunshine and 50°-that's a cure in itself..DJ says b-murf back to Haley ; )

GM: welcome back and thanks for the updates..don't ya love it when the weatherman misses high ; )

DJ says "woofie" to all..the weatherdude missed here today also, but we ain't conplaining-he said a high of 62, but we may have hit 70-woohoo..woohoo..to bad it's short-lived, but it's a sign of better things, i hope..and most of the parking lot snow and sleet piles are gone now-except for those in the shade-sighhh..

have a great Monday 2s and 4s..
