Christmas 2013

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Not too much to add. I still have mixed feelings about this time of year. It generally comes across for me as a disappointment. I am somewhat relieved that its over. Happy still shows up generally speaking, I think he must have hurt himself somehow as he walks with a limp. I truly wish I could find a way to get him fixed up and bring him into the house. Its a real heartbreaker for me why I am not totally sure, Perhaps its because I doubt he has ever experienced much in the way of human kindness. I made another catbed albeit a smaller version as a gift this year. I took some time off of work as I am becoming a basket case and I really need OUT. Tomorrow is going to be crazy with all the Boxing Day sales (its a stat holiday in most Commonwealth countries I think). I can't wait to get a different job.trouble is its tough to move as there is a freeze in most departments of my employer. Merry Christmas and a BETTER 2014 for ALL of us. WE DESERVE IT.

    I am always glad when the holidays are over too. They don't have the thrill they did when I was a kid and had some relatives. I look forward to a new year and lots of good things to come. I hope you can get a new job and that both of us have a good year coming up. The same for Happy. I wish Happy would allow you to help him too.

good news

He did show up after I wrote yesterday (thanks for the support). He was very cold and today he was still cold . Cheryl set up a heater by the cat shelter and I guess he was thirsty as he seemed more interested in drinking than in the food.

    So glad "your" kitty returned. Isn't it a great feeling when those fur-balls come to feel safe with us? If you can rig up a light fixture, those old fashioned incandescent bulbs give off a fair amount of heat. (We use one in the winter to keep our outside water pump from freezing.) emoticon

    Poor kitty. Can you put a light in his shelter. We dad used to put lights in the dog houses and they would put off heat when it was cold. It probably is hard to find unfrozen water outside when it's below freezing.

Sad Because of Happy

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

There was a cat that we were feeding as he was homeless and starving , My daughter named him Happy as he had a white band across his chest that looked like a smile and white paws (the rest of him was black). I built a shelter for him but I do not think he ever used it.He used to show up after 5 like clockwork. No sign of him. We had a very bad snowstorm so I don't know if he succumbed to the cold or if he got hit by a car or what befell him.

    I'm so sorry but don't give up hope. I also had a cat that I trapped, neutered and vaccinated and then disappeared for almost a year! Then, like a miracle, he came back!! I don't know where he went but he's here and I still feed him!! I hope he comes back and at some point, if you can trap him, get him shots and neutered. It will prolong his life and make him healthier. There are organizations that will help with that too! Good luck. I hope he comes back!!!

    Oh no!! I hate to hear it. Maybe someone let him inside somewhere. I hope he is okay.

    Oh, hopefully Happy shows up. Maybe he is hiding out somewhere until the snow passes. Fingers crossed he return!!

tirade of the day

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I am SO PISSED OFF at the idiots that say they are so called experts on this site and
put the WRONG answers to the trivia questions. There was one STUPID one today and there was NO REFERENCE to it on the site AT ALL. When I did a web search for it I based MY ANSWER on the INTERNET. GUESS WHAT? I GOT IT WRONG (or rather that's what the pillocks here said).

    I wish they would make reference on where we can get more information on answers they give.

All of my questions were about caffeine. The one I got wrong, I would love to research (horribly, I can't even tell you what it was about now that at least 15 minutes have passed). Oh it was about caffeine and endurance training. I know I got it wrong, but I still would like more info on it.

I would also like to see the list of questions I've answered today after I have answered 3 correctly of course. I can't even hit the back button. UGH!

snow

Monday, November 18, 2013

We have a feral cat that hangs around as he was starving and the wife started to feed him I spent a lot of my spare time (what's THAT) last week trying to build him a shelter as its gotten cold this week. I feel really sorry for him- its criminal that people have pets and then just dispose of them. Sorry I really need to update the cat wall part of my photos as the daughter got 4 kittens since Sam died and they have all grown up.

    I feel sorry for feral cats too and stray dogs. Their life expectancy is really short.
