More progress is made by attacking problems than by attacking people.

Alice Thinks Sometimes Maybe Perhaps

Good Morning, I'm doing some better, at least I have both eyes open today, even if I'm only using one, at least it is my left eye. I'm one of 17% of Americans. Right handed and left eye dominate. Unfortunately I'm so left eye dominate that to correct my right eye to 20/20 the lens would be so much thicker then my left lens that my glasses wouldn't sit straight. Interesting fact, 17% of Americans are right handed left eye dominate, 50% of baseball players are right handed left eye dominate.

I know church is important to many of you, by all means go, but something to think about. People that attend church regularly are more likely to be over weight. They aren't sure if it is because of the hours of sitting or because church and food go together. So watch what you eat at church and go for a walk after church, or before if you go to a late service.

DH says Lola doesn't like to be petted. He loves to pet cats. I don't know about that, she wakes me up 2 or 3 times a night to be petted and if I'm sitting, reading, working on the computer or crocheting she bats me till I pet her. I think it is because Lola likes a light touch. DH has a heavy hand and for some reson often pets cats backwards. I never said much because our other cats would go curl up next to him and at least acted like they enjoyed it, but not Lola.

"If you haven't forgiven yourself something, how can you forgive others?"
– Dolores Huerta

Good afternoon, 2 loads of laundry, check, well one on the line and the other in the washer, grocery shopping, check, pet food, check for 2, the third is special and we have to go to the feed store to her his food, play fetch, check time 2. If you try to do anything outside at my house expect to throw a ball while doing it. Once picking up sticks in the yard and once hanging cloths. Guess that means we will play again I have another load to go out. 10,000 steps check, sines headache check.

I hate this ozone alert. Well the alert doesn't bother me. I could have told you without the weather man reminding me it is the fact we have to have one.

Happy Blue Moon!



A Blue Moon is the second full moon occurring in a month. It's not rare - it happens approximately every 30 mon. or 2 1/2 years. July's first full moon was on the 1st and the second will occur tonight.

Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

Those fish toys sound fun. Do you think the cats will try to catch them at all? I guess you might have a top on the container and that would keep that from happening, though. It would sure keep their attention.

I wonder if a dog would enjoy watching those, too. I know that Cassie will watch the smaller animals at Petco and Petsmart. She just gets fascinated. Something like that might be fun for both Cassie and Orzo.

I found the Robo fish toys at my local Walgreens on sale for $2.49 each, I bought a clown fish and green shark. Then went over to Dollar Store and picked up a clear plastic food container for $1.00. When I got home, I filled the container with water and opened the fish package.

Opening those packages was the most difficult thing to do emoticon Finally got it opened, the fish come with batteries inside them plus you get 2 extra batteries in the package.

OMG my cats are absolutely mesmerised. When the fish swim around their tails hit the side of the bowl and make a clicking sound, these also came with little pieces of faux coral. My one cat just laid down next to the bowl and watched, the other one watched while sitting up - she reminded me of Snoopy on top of his house.

Lots of enjoyment for a couple of bucks.

They haven't tried to get them, both tried to get a look up close and personal and got water in their noses. It will be interesting to see how long the batteries last. The shark dips to the bottom more than the Clown Fish. My niece is wanting to get for her dogs, but I think they would be able to chomp on them - so a cover would be in order.

I live in the DC suburbs where lots of people live in McMansions, then have to work extra hours to pay for the help to maintain it because it's too big. I have never understood that.

Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

There are a couple of places that advertise on Facebook. I can't remember the first one I saw, that has their pet sitters sit at your house. The other is Rover.com and they have sitters sit at their house. I believe both are bonded sitters. I have thought of doing that, but I don't know that it would be possible with Cassie and Orzo. It would be something I could do without worrying about the IBS.

I did house sit for one person I used to work with. Took care of horses, dog and cat way out in the country. I drove home every day to take care of my dogs, stayed with them for a while during the day, then back to her house to take care of her animals and spend the night and take care of them in the morning.

A friend of mine does house sitting here, too, but I think that is a bit far for you to get her to sit for you. I don't know how she got the one job she does a lot. The others she got from church people.

There are 2 good ways to make sure you get a honest house sitter. The first is word of mouth. The 2ed is to make sure they are bonded. DH only told people he knew and trusted at church. But then he wasn't trying to get a job. He was supplementing disabily. He didn't want some place to live. He lived with me.

I know there are people who housesit, I just don't know how to find them. I had a friend who housesat after his divorce. He had a good job, and his legal address was his mother's, but he lived at client houses while they were out of town, sometimes months at a time. He saved a lot of money. Not only was he not paying rent, someone was paying him to live in very nice houses. I would love to be able to trust someone enough to live in my house with my cats while I'm away. It's expensive, though.

Very funny MaryAlice.
I never want to travel, I worry too much about my kitties and I dislike travel anyway.. I used to baby sit the cats next door. Their mommy worked for the Gov. and traveled 2-3 wks at a time. She was afraid she was going to have to give up her babies because her friend took care of them once and put them in her basement. They came home worried and miserable. I watched them for free. Stopped by 2 x a day and played, fed and medicated them when needed (and changed the litter). Once in a while, she would do a little job for me around the house like put up a curtain rod. Life is short, I try to make my friends and their pets lives a little better if possible. emoticon

And let's not forget The Onion's take on it: GENEVA, SWITZERLAND—World Health Organization officials expressed disappointment Monday at the group's finding that, despite the enormous efforts of doctors, rescue workers and other medical professionals worldwide, the global death rate remains constant at 100 percent.

When we lived in town DH use to house sit. Most of the time it was go by the house, pick up the mail or any free papers so the house didn't look empty. Some people asked him to hang out for a bit everyday and not to come by at the same time everyday.One person went so far as to get him a stack of his favorite movies and stock the fridge with ice tea so he could hang out. Many times feeding cats and cleaning litterboxes were on his list of things that needed to be done. He commented more then once that he knew a cat was in the house because the food was always gone and the litterbox needed cleaned, but he never saw one.

Nell, I would get worried about mine, especially now that Orzo can't eat the dry food. If he could eat the dry I could leave it and just have the neighbor check on him. He's to where he needs to be fed 3-4 times a day because of needing canned or raw.

When I got caught in the storms with the roads flooded between me and home I texted my neighbor to see if they could come over and check the babies. Jamie didn't know where the water was, so she put water in one of the bowls in the kitchen, let Cassie out for a few minutes and then left her loose in the house, which is fine. I put her in her crate because I can't get out the door otherwise.

Orzo is doing better eating. Today he even ate pate instead of just the sauced food.

I know when I had to go to the hospital unexpectedly, I did worry about my pets. At least my daughter and son-in-law were there and knew where I keep my list of pet care, even though since they work, they couldn't take out the doggies so made sure the potty pads were in place.

Tomorrow we leave for a two week trip. My oldest son is the cat sitter, but he is at the beach until Wednesday. My next door neighbor will stop by on Tuesday to feed them and clean the litter boxes. I always worry about the cats while I am away. They are used to two retirees able to fuss over them whenever they want fussing, and ignore them when they want to be ignored. They are used to someone in their house just about every hour of every day, as well as two squares served up at the correct times. I know I should be more excited about leaving; we haven't been anywhere in over a year, and we didn't go anywhere for two years before that.

Do you all worry when you are away, even though you know the cats are just fine?

"A mistake is simply another way of doing things."
– Katharine Graham

Good morning, The other day I was driving down a 6 lane highway. According to my onboard temp gage it was 96 outside. Running in the bike lane was a guy wearing nothing but a spedo and a heart rate monitor around his chest. Don't get me wrong I have nothing against running, but there is a time and a place for everything and I don't think a six lane highway is the place and you won't catch me running in the noon day sun when it is in the mid 90's. Use some cation folks.

On a lighter note. DH and I went to a mall we don't normally go to to mall walk before they opened. I counted 5 Ti Chi groups inside the mall, several under the trees outside the mall lots of one on one instructors and more people then I could count doing their own thing. No we weren't the only people walking, but close to it.. 5 Min before the mall opened they all disappeared.

Good afternoon, It is just plain hot. I've been sick with heat exhaustion once this year, first time in many years. Between that and the fact the heat pulls the energy out of me, I'm not exercising like I was.

I don't know if it's good air conditioning or what, but I don't have pet odors from my cats. As long as they use the litter boxes, it just isn't a problem. People coming into my house are surprised to see a cat fly by, they can't tell from the smell. I know dogs have an odor, but I didn't know that cats did.

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda has always been my staple for freshening up my area rugs. I sprinkle and let it sit for about an hour before vacuuming. With the hot and humid weather we've been having, it doesn't seem to have the kick it normally does.

I purchased A&H Pet Fresh for carpets with OxiClean to see if that might add a little more oomph to my regular baking soda routine. I sprinkled it on the smaller of the two rugs and oh my gawd does it stink! I had no idea that A&H equates "freshness" with sickenly sweet perfume - oh yuk. It is so early in the morning that I can't vacuum yet because of neighbors in my condo.

This stuff is going back to the store - it makes me gag. Of course, the cats are staying far, far away from that area rug LOL My whole condo reeks from the smell of this stuff that is suppose to freshen carpets from normal pet odors - I'd rather have the musty smell than this gross smell.

If you ever try it remember that the perfume is very strong smelling - does it work, I don't know yet, I'll see once I vacuum it out of my rug. I've also dumped regular A&H baking soda on it hoping to get rid of the cloying scent.

We've been having rain again this week. Not a lot like we used to have, but enough to not have to water all the time.

Today I went to the Botanic Gardens free day. It was raining some when I got there, but after I walked most of the outside gardens. I took a bunch of pictures and want to try to post them. Might take me to tomorrow or so since I am so tired. I am not sure I can stay awake at all. I can figure out how to load to SP, but don't know how to do it to FB, so that will take me a while.

"Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish."
– Ovid

Good evening. I know I haven't been on much. Work went from 17 hours a week at a laid back pace to 40 hours a week of utter craziness with one text on a Monday night. Oh well as my boss says it won't last and it is what I enjoy. Taking a box of paperwork, a general ledger that either has to many account or not enough and an income statement and balance sheet that would make any accountant shedder and turing them into something that makes sense. I have 4 sets of books, I'm doing one at a time. They came in for my boss to do taxes. Normally I look over the books, and an hour later give them back to her because everything is ready for her. I gave her back the first set of books this morning. It was the easy one, and only took me 22 hours.

It is hot and muggy here. At the house we haven't had any rain or clouds even to cool things off so are under a heat adversary. Where I work 20 miles from here it was over cast all day and it rained most of the afternoon.

No one ever found out. They where looking for something we had no one else had or something we all had and only our cats knew to eat it. They can to the conclusion that what ever it is it is something the cats don't eat on a regular basics, but as needed and thy would need tp be in the right place at the right time to see the ate get it.

MaryAlice, do you know what kind of grass it was that your cats ate? Natural antibiotics are supposed to be better than chemical and it would be great for you if you could remember what it was. Of course the FDA would probably try to prevent you from using it for anything.

Was out trying to work on things outside earlier. The temperature wasn't so hot according to thermometer, but it sure felt hot to me. I hope it will cool off some without storming. Of course, today I lasted about 5 minutes before my back started hurting, which didn't help any. I was also trying to do stuff in the garage so that I can find a couple things. I had a couple larger battery/plug in fans (work with either) and can't find either. I want to find them in case I have to leave Cassie in the truck sometime so that she can have some coolness. Guess I have to put something in there for the ice, too, to blow the air from the fan over. That makes a home-made air conditioner. She has been staying home on hot days, not going with me.

I used to spend summers on a family farm back in the 50s. There were barn cats, and they bred like crazy. My aunt used to have to drown some of the kittens to keep the population down. I was horrified, but that was life on a farm.

"I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be."
– Groucho Marx

Good morning today is my late day. I'll most likely work late to miss the evening traffic.

When i lived on the farm, there where no small animal vets. We were told cats bread out of control because every few years feline distemper came though and whipped out 3/4 the cats. We got 3 females and a male and 3 years later, we had cats, cats and more cats. Feline distemper came, the farms all around us lost all their cats, we didn't lose any. Not a one. We gave away all the cats but the first 4. a few years later feline distemper came and we didn't loose any cats again. The cats we gave away were fine, but their offspring all died as did most of the other cats in the area. Again we gave away all but the first 4 again a few years later distemper came again non of the cats born on our farm died. We moved to town and left the cats in an Indian village. Last I heard the Indian medicine woman was trying to find the grass that grew on our farm that the cats eat so they didn't get distemper and the cats weren't helping her.

When I moved away from there (where cats kept being dropped off), I took all 22 with me. Through the years they passed away.

Nell, Orzo has gotten very, very picky. He can't eat the dry cat food, though I am going to try getting some more and grinding it so he can eat that some. I tried adding water once and he wouldn't eat that at all. He will sometimes just refuse to eat whatever "saucy" food I give him, but he definitely won't eat the pate type, which is what the Science Diet is. Tonight he will just get the rest of the turkey that is in the roll I got.

I am one who has a dog and cat. I have had dogs since I was 10 and off and on cats since I was about 17, but they were mostly barn cats. I had one here, but when Annie had pups she didn't get along with them and that ended up a disaster. I got Orzo a couple years ago after losing my last dog, then a breeder friend gave Cassie to me. Orzo is the boss of the household, but he got to loving Cassie after she was here a few months and will wash her face every day. Cassie is now allowed to wash his neck and chin. If I am sleeping in my bed they both sleep with me, but in the recliner Cassie sleeps next to it while Orzo sleeps on top of me. At least he sleeps there when it is cool enough. He was a rescue that I thought would take a while to get used to being here since he seemed to ignore me completely when my friend and I met him, but after she went home it took him about 10 minutes to hop in my lap for the night. He is a big cuddler.

I'm lucky that my cats prefer Friskies Tasty Treasures wet food and Purina Cat Chow Naturals dry food. I have to have food that all three will eat, and they agree on these. Available at Walmart. My oldest cat is supposed to eat a low protein special cat food from the vet, but she won't touch it, and will simply not eat unless she likes the food. She became anorexic with refusing the expensive food (really, anorexic. Not anorexia nervosa, I doubt she thought the other cats called her fat) but we finally decided that it was better for her to eat something, anything, even if it wasn't the best thing for her. I used to feed them in separate bowls, but my middle cat would wolf down her food then rush over and push the other cats away to eat theirs. Then promptly throw up. For some reason when I feed them all from one plate, they share well. The dry food is always available, but it takes them a few days to go through a bowl of it. Unlike me and potato chips. If they're there, I'll eat them.

Well, Orzo doesn't like that horrible Science Diet food. That was the only kind they had at the Cat Fest. I had to mix in the Friskies saucy kind for him to eat it. He bugged me for a long time this morning and I finally decided he had eaten all his food and needed more, but that wasn't the case.

Cassie and I were outside quite a bit today. I cut down a lot of limbs and wild trees and started hoeing where I want to put the Hen and Chicks. That place is so full of weeds that I have only gotten about 2 feet done. Then I read on one of the pots that they have to be protected from frost. So why do they sell them in an area that gets snow in the spring and sometimes during the winter and fall? And at night it frosts most of the winter. Now I will have to figure a way to protect them from the frost.

We had 87 when I was outside earlier. It is now down to about 67. Probably should go do more work while it is cool and before the storms start in. Just feel too tired, though. If I don't do the work earlier when it is so hot I won't get any done, though, so I just have to get out there then.

"All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without the benefit of experience."

Good afternoon, Today was the day I worked both companies, well the next 2 days too. Glad they are 1/2 mid apart. The weather lady said that tomorrow will be lots of sunshine, plenty of heat and more then enough humidity. In other words the temp will be in the mid 90's with a feel like of 105. She said yesterday we broke the record for the hottest day this early in the year and today we broke the record for the hottest week. Hottest week and it is Tuesday?

About a year ago right after I got up my tracker said I had gone several hundred steps. That couldn't be right. Well I looked into it and I had walked about 250 steps at 12:30A. I didn't notice if anything was amiss the rest of the year. I got a new tracker, It tracks sleep, I thought something was wrong with it this morning. It said I didn't go to bed till almost 1A. I know I stayed up late but thought it was about 9:30. I got on line and checked the graft. I walked 100 steps at 12:30 last night. DH said when he came to bed at 10:00 I was sound asleep and he and he normally knows if I get up to pee and doesn't think I got up at all last night. I wear my tracker on my ankle, now I'm wondering if I'm getting restless leg, but why did it happen a year apart. I thought about wearing my tracker on my wrist at night, but if this is a once a year thing, what difference would it make. I guess we wait and see.

Nell I normally give my cats the names of gods and goddess. My latest rescue was 8 years old and I didn't think it would be in her best interest to change her name. But she is all cat, she has told me in no uncertain terms she is a goddess and this is her temple and I better not forget it. Mom says there was a cat sitting beside my cradle waiting for me to come home from the hospital. That was 62 years ago and except for when I was in college can't remember being without a cat, or 2 or 20. There where no vet bills, no small animal vets. and yes there are dogs, 2 right now. But they know who's boss

Jo. if you can, call the vet about CeCe's hip. It might be an allergy like eczema. You need to get a little med on it before it becomes infected. Since it is in a place she can bite, it should be recommended by vet. They will tell you on phone some kind of over the counter if you promise to bring her in if it gets worse.
Nelliec, Did all 22 cats go to good homes?
Nell, emoticon . I am Linda , I live in Howard Co.MD (near the casino, MD Live) I am owned by 2 cats, both rescues. Chrisy Miss, 13 1/2 yrs and Sir Garfield (he is a British Short Hair) 5 1/2 yrs and yes he has papers (they are pound papers, but never the less papers).
You will do fine here. We complain and brag about our fur babies every day.
Val, Love your post.
Darlene, I keep Chrisy "active" playing with battery operated feather toys. Lo co Motion.

Hi Everyone, I was wondering if anyone remembers us discussing in the past about cats chewing and licking spots on their fur, down to the skin.
I remember this topic but don't know where to look for it.

My CeCe is a loving cat but is very timid and nervous cat. A couple of years ago she had a spot like this and the vet could find nothing wrong. Her thought it probably was nervous. After several months she let it grow back. Since 4th of July this year, fireworks in our neighborhood were really loud and many more then usual, (two new neighbors). It scared CeCe a lot! She now has a new bare spot on her hip.

I need to know what all of the wonderful ideas and helps that people put online to help her from continuing to lick on the spot.
Thanks so much!!!
JO

Welcome! While I do have a couple of dogs, I also have 6 cats. At one time when the corner I lived on seemed to be people's favorite place for dumping their kittens, I had 22 cats.

Hello everyone. I am escaping a Sparkteam that is ostensibly about weight loss, but seems really to be about dogs. I am a lifelong cat lover, I have 3 Siamese, and am tired of being the odd one out. I am tired of long discussions about thundershirts and whether or not to fence a yard, and crates and all the dog stuff that is utterly foreign to a cat person. I brought each of them home and awaited instructions. They live completely indoors, and allow me to join them provided I feed them what they want and keep their litter boxes clean. They have the full run of the house. I tried to have a dog once, but I have no alpha instinct. I am perfectly happy letting the cats tell me what to do.

I look forward to getting to know you all and your cats.

I've never thought of Orzo as gobbling, but he doesn't chew his food very well, even if his mouth isn't bothering him. The dry food will often come up just like it comes out of the bag. Then Cassie has to go to work cleaning up after him. Doesn't help her bad breath very much.

There have been a lot of companies that change their formulas and deny that they are. They want you to keep buying their food even though it isn't as good for the dogs or cats (or even horses or cattle). There is just too much emphasis on money. Orzo has been eating turkey today. I guess I should see if anyone has anything I can afford on sale again. I have enough canned to make it until Friday.

I just read a post in the Raw Feeding for Cats with IBD that was interesting. I am not so far as they are. The lady had her raw-fed cats break into a bag of dry food and woke up to stinky litter. She said it hasn't been smelling at all with them eating raw. Her cats got into a couple other things, too. There was a styrofoam packing carton that they tore up all over the house.

Saturday when I was at the Cat Fest I went to see what all they do to keep the cats in the shelter there happy. Aroma therapy was one thing. They give them paper bags to play with, so we got to decorate them with stamps and either take them or leave them for the kitties there (I left mine. Have a bunch of paper bags here I can get out for Orzo) They play classical music, have fish like Beta (they keep on the other side of a window), and have a bubble machine so the cats can chase the bubbles. I could maybe get a Beta to keep Orzo entertained, have some EOs for aromatherapy, and somewhere have classical music. I don't think I can manage the bubble machine, but maybe could get some blowing wands.

Fancyqtr, Chrisy Miss has always had an iffy tummy. She tends to throw up too much. One thing, she gobbles. I was using Blue Buffalo Sensitive Stomach and she was doing so well, then I suspect they changed the recipe (I emailed, they denied it) now they are back to making her tummy feel good. She eats Purina Pate also, I do not feed just hard food. That can be rough on their kidneys. Hope Orzo feels better. It hurts to see them feeling bad. emoticon

It sounds like the tracker you have is really nice. I also have problems with the pedometers. I can walk a couple of miles and have it show 500 steps on most. I got a good one from Kings (one of our grocery stores) that had setting step length and everything. All the others didn't have anything like that. I got one from Walgreens this year because I lost the Kings one and I can't figure out how to set step lengths and I don't think it is working as well, though I don't know because I haven't compared them. Finally found my Kings one, so maybe I will get the new battery in it and try wearing both at the same time and see how they work.

Orzo is eating better, but the samples I got are the pate kind so he doesn't like what I gave him today. He has eaten quite a bit, but slowly. Talking to my one friend last night and she told me that I need to put him back on dry food. Yeah, right, put him back on stuff that makes him throw up all the time. I just cannot get her to understand that he cannot eat certain things. She feels that she knows more than anyone else.

It's been hot again so Orzo has been doing a lot of his sleeping on the other chair instead of on my lap. He does come over for a little while and then goes back to the other chair. During winter when I am freezing he is right on top of me all the time.

Every year Americans eat an estimated seven billion hot dogs!
Laid end to end they would encircle the earth 27 times.
Two billion of them are eaten in July.
Alice Thinks Sometimes Maybe Perhaps

Good morning, My profile picture is the tee shirt mom got last year when she went on her senior walk about. Just a reminder, if 25 people over 65 can go for a 10 mile hike everyday for 2 weeks, we can get off the couch too.

Mutt and I have been for our before dawn morning walk and i have grocery shopping done, now time to hide from the heat. I still have a load of cloths on the line I hung out last night and aren't quite dry, but that will only take about 10 min in the heat.

I have a Misfit tracker and the other day DH saw that it tracked my sleep and said that if he wore one it would be all white, he was awake. I told him like I have a million times. he sleeps more then he thinks. Well I got him a Misfit Flash to wear to bed. DH has CP and can't lift his feet. He shuffles and uses a cane. He keeps saying he hears over and over how he should get 10,000 steps a day and has tried pedometers to see if he is and they can't count his steps. He decided to try the Misfit. Yes it counted his steps. He asked if it would count when he was on the bike, I said yes, so he tried my stationary bike. After a few min he checked and the Misfit said he had taken 2000 steps. he said he was riding not walking. I told him it had taken his riding and turned it into steps. He is so excited now he has a chance at 10,000 steps a day. Yes the tracker did prove he sleeps more then he thought. Neither of us can wear anything on our wrist, I made bands so that we can wear them on our ankle.

Good morning, relaxing at the computer with the sound of waves. Sometimes I miss the beach, well most of the time. In Oct I'll be walking the beach with Mom.

I've heard of animals that want people around when they eat. Lola is just the other way. She will eat if I'm around, but gives me dirty looks, and I better not look her way. She won't eat if anyone else is around. She also won't clean herself if anyone is around. In the 10 months I've had her I can count on one hand the number of times I've seen her wash her face and I saw her once cleaning herself and she gave me the dirtiest look and ran away. I know where she does it now and make a point of not going there unless I know where she is. She goes in the back corner of the back bedroom under a table behind a box. I've never had a cat that wanted her privacy.

It is good that you can tell your mom is okay from the Alice thinks posts. My mom's family was also long lived, for the most part, though not quite as long as yours.

Orzo was waking me up again this morning and doing body slams into my face. I kept telling him he had food, but he was insisting that I get up. I have heard of dogs that will not eat unless their people are in the room with them. Are there cats that do the same? When I got into the room he got up on the counter and ate about half of the turkey I had given him. He also wanted some of the canned, so I gave him a small spoonful and he ate that while I stayed in the room and put some things away. While he hasn't been eating as much and is losing weight, he seems like he is healthier. At least he is more energetic and gets the zoomies a little more. Then sleeps the day away. Yesterday when I fell asleep in the chair he let me sleep for about a half hour and then insisted I get up. I wonder if he was hungry then and wanted me to go in the other room where his food was. I had never thought of that with a cat.

I was at Petco the other day and got some food for my little boy and the dental toys. I looked to see if his picture was still up on the wall. They keep saying that was the first cat they adopted out from that store. I know it wasn't because he was the last one there that December. No one would adopt him because of his age and teeth problem he had had. Seems they just can't understand that the picture was just one I took of him and gave them.

Good morning, Mom post Alice thinks, you have seen them from time to time, when she wants us to know she is ok, but has nothing to write. Yesterday I got an Alice thinks and again today. Guess she just took off some place. Parents, well listening to you guys, I'm lucky, my mom is healthy enough to take off. My families thinking is that the life expectancy of woman in our family is 101. 25 years longer then the national average, so we are 25 years younger then our years. That would make mom 58. If you ask her how old she is she will tell you 28 and some months, pressed she will tell you how many months, but it is up to you to figure it out from there.

My MAC is dyeing. The internal battery is going. The MAC can't work without the battery, even plugged in. I'm told I have somewhere between 1 month and a year and will have no notice I will just go to turn it on and it won't turn on. DH figures with our tablets it isn't worth firing the MAC. The tracker I had has to be connected to a computer to get the information. So I got a new tracker that connects by blue tooth to my phone.

I got a Misfit. The old tracker gave you credit for steps and time. I did great. The Misfit gives you credit for steps and time, but extra credit for intensity. The slower you walk the longer it takes you and the more steps you take. The hour long walk I use to take was 6000 steps. Now the walk takes me 50 min and is 5500 steps, but I get extra credit for walking fast, so my points are higher. I noticed today my skin looks like it does just before I have a weight lose. I know this is silly, but it is working for me.

MaryAlice, that will be nice if you can go on part of the walkabout with your mother. I hope there isn't a problem with you not hearing from her.

Linda, our county/city doesn't have anything for seniors except they can get license for one pet. And I don't fit because their senior things don't start until you are 65 and I haven't quite reached that yet. They don't have anything for disabled. At the food pantry there are a couple extra things, one being for those who live IN the county and the other, for seniors, is from the state, I think, so seniors can be over 62 instead of 65. Both those they have extra canned goods like canned tomatoes, beans and potatoes.

I think there might be another pet food place, but I'm not sure. I will try looking it up. I really can't afford the cost of canned food for Orzo and I told him today that he will have to eat what I give him because I can't afford anything else.

Earlier this year one of the tv channels here had their pet health fair day. You make an appointment for your pet with a participating vet and the checkups are free. I started calling the second their lines opened to do appointments and called continually until a half hour after they were supposed to close. I never did get through. I would have the phone keep ringing for a while and then someone would hang it up and I would start over. I did that for 2 1/2 or 3 1/2 hours.

"Courage is very important. Like a muscle, it is strengthened by use."
– Ruth Gordon

Good Afternoon, I'm a bookkeeper for a public Accountant. I do clean up. That means when someone has had someone that didn't know what they were doing keeping their books and they soddenly discover they can't do taxes, I clean the books up so the accountant can do taxes.During the off season, when it is quite, I keep an eye on 4 sets of books and make fix mess ups as they happen. I was working 2 jobs, 15 hours a week for one and 10 hours a week for the other. I had my live planed accordingly. Then Monday after I left work, the boss I work 15 hours for and the one I had worked for that day sent me a text, that is how she communicates with people, she got a couple clean us and needs me 35 hours a week. I told her no can do, she gets me 30 hours a week, but it still means I loose 18 hours a week doing things around the house.

I haven't heard from Mom in several days. The way Mom is about just up and going some place it isn't that unusual. Most of the time she lets us know if we won't hear from her for several days, but sometimes sounds so good just droops everything and goes. I don't think she is going on walk about till OCT. It is just too hot right now. Beside she seldom goes on more then one a year and she has already planned this years. She will be close enough to me that I'll be able to join her for one weekend.

Fancyqtr, In Maryland our shelters have programs for seniors to get food and help for their pets. It keeps owners together with their pets. Also county senior centers have help with food and necessities for pets. Hope things get better. Hugs

Sierragold, like I said I had Orzo's tumor cut out and have absolutely NO money for anything now. In fact, I went to get him more food and dental toys (was looking for enzymatic toothpaste he could just lick to clean his teeth) and my credit card was rejected. I cannot go anywhere unless someone else is paying. I am sitting in the dark because I can't afford the electricity for the lights and such. I will probably be cancelling my eye appointment this month because I cannot afford the co-pay.

I was able to get the food and dental toys with another card. Otherwise I would have left them there. Next week I can get a few cans from the Pet Food Pantry for him. Those are available every 2 months (usually 4 cans). I will get some dry again and try to grind it and maybe soak it to soften it with some broth. Maybe he will eat some of that so I can make it through til the September Pet Food Pantry. Other than that, I will see if anything the Food Pantry has for me will be suitable for him to eat. Saturday I will go to Cat Fest (I think it is Saturday) and see if they have samples of different foods I can get him.

My friend treated me to a movie today. We went and saw Inside Out with her nieces. That was nice.

My vet told me to put gel on cats leg above the paw. I rub it in so it won't come off when they flick it. They cannot stand it on their leg so they spend quality time licking it off. Chrisy also had a broken tooth once and found it hard to eat. She prefers Blue Buffalo Sensitive Diet. It helps her tummy. She used to throw up after gobbling food down. I also serve her soft food daily because only hard food is hard on their kidneys. Purina Pate is what they feed cats with diabetes and even though she is not diabetic, she is overweight so that's what I feed her. Also it's her favorite.
PS anything I add to their food means they won't eat it. I try joint creams on Chrisy but it must be smeared into her leg.

Thank you Darlene and Nellie!

I think trying a little real butter on her paw might help. I also have the same problem with both Chloe and Bella eating all the creamy sauce in the canned food and leaving most of the meat. They're young (7 & 8) and they're teeth are great. They're just picky like that. I also give them the Fancy Feast Broths Creamy variety and they love to lick that up. Their favorites are Fancy Feast Mornings and Rachel Rays line. They hate any kind of pate. Has to be saucy. I'd definitely take Orzo in to have his teeth checked. There could be a cracked tooth giving him pain. Chloe had that years ago, and it had to be pulled.

So thanks again!

I have used a tiny amount of butter or spread and put it in just a little wipe on the paws, but not so much it can be flung off. To get it off, they do actually have to lick it off.

I'm afraid I can't be much help on hairballs. I thought Orzo had those, but it just seems he is eating his food without chewing. I also tried the hairball gel and ended up with it all over my floor as he ran away after I put it on his paw. He will eat some of the treats for hairball treatment, but not others. Darn picky cat.

I am still having some problems getting him to eat. He has now taken to licking all the sauce off his food and leaving the meat. He will eventually eat the meat, but it takes a while. I guess I got the wrong kind and it is too large of pieces for him. I did get him to eat some ground beef this morning, so maybe the ground turkey will work, too.

I read something on the news one time that the one shelter had a veterinary clinic they built to treat animals that were rescues (he came from there) or that were in danger of being sent their because people couldn't afford care and I am going to see about that when they have Cat Fest on Saturday. Maybe I can get his teeth checked there. Since I had to get both Cassie and Orzo surgery for tumors I have nothing left. Orzo is very good at cleaning his teeth all the time, though. Maybe he needs some new boxes and paper bags to work with rather than just the door. I have to find some way he will eat. He has gotten skinny.

I have a question about hairball treatments.

I've been trying to use Petromalt and the Hertz brand of the petroleum hairball treatments. It is so difficult to give to one of my cats...Chloe with very fine long fur. I have a pic of my two kitties on my page. I have no problem giving her a pill, (she also has been recently diagnosed with asthma) but to get that ribbon of goo into her mouth and actually swallow it, is a chore. If I put it on her foot to lick it off, she flings it off. If I put it on my finger and try to go in from the side to swipe it into her mouth she'll spit it out after I let her go. She just holds it in her mouth until I let her go. She really hates the stuff. She's been throwing up hairballs more often lately, so I need to figure out other options. I brush her every day and she loves to be brushed. She even comes asking for brushing. I've been trying to get more FURminator combing in, but she doesn't stand for it as long as I need to use it on her. So I have to sneak in a few combs while using the regular two-sided brush with the long aluminum round tipped 'pins' in the cushion.


My question is... is there anything else that works for coating a cats digestive track? Is there something organic/healthy that I can put into the water or food? I try to mix the hairball goo into her wet food and she can smell it and won't eat it. She's on to me. I've also tried the treats that are supposed to help, but they won't eat those. So picky.

If nothing else, I'll have to call the vet and see if they sell something I could use. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated!

Barbara, and Chloe and Bella

I will have to look that up. It might be a good use for it for me as well as cats. Thanks.

I was at my friend's today getting some tomato cages and she asked me if I needed some mint. They just bought the house last year and are just finding out what they actually have in the yard. There are two large patches of mint (don't know if it is peppermint or what kind).

It is too bad that people can't have any common sense with that. There was a post on FB today where a trainer was doing something to get dogs used to fireworks or, in the case of the training, firecrackers. He had the students down their dogs and stand at the end of their leashes other than two dogs that were walked around the other dogs. Then he let off a whole bunch of firecrackers. One dog got loose and took off. The other dogs were freaking out, one trying to climb on his owner, and they were just jerking the dogs like crazy. Trainer wasn't worth anything.

Orzo and Cassie mostly slept though the fireworks. I have been fortunate. All my pets have been okay with them.

I got to thinking the other day that maybe I could do something with my catnip. It has started growing wild just outside my garden and is growing outside the planter that I normally have had it in. Do you think it is possible to dry that catnip and sell it? It is growing pretty fast, I cut some a few weeks ago and it is at least that tall again, plus there are more plants starting up. Nothing else grows in the one area but weeds. It is where I put my pots of herbs.

Good afternoon

When I walked Mutt yesterday it was still daylight because I wanted to get home before the fireworks started, but still, it was light enough i was wearing a cap, I had to ask several people not to shot them off till after the dog and I had passed there house. I know they don't think dogs are anything, but well dogs, but I would have thought they would have stopped when a person was walking by the house. Maybe I'm old fashion.

Lola must have decided the firecrackers weren't a threat, she spent the night with me.

I don't think they pay a whole lot of attention around here unless emergency services are called. They just started shooting them off somewhere in the neighborhood. Firecrackers, I think, not the pretty ones.

About 10:15 I realized that the fireworks were almost right across the street from me. Just at the corner or the house in back of them. Possibly the one at the corner since they haven't been there a full year yet and the others have. I don't think the others have ever shot them off. Gosh, if I had gone down to the corner I could have sat down and actually watched some. They did change to the aerials.

We haven't had as many illegal fireworks this year as in previous years. Today Cassie heard some going off and it took me a while to hear them. I think they must have been pop bottle rockets because it isn't dark enough to see anything else and it was a whistle. It didn't seem to bother her, just she wondered what it was. Orzo is just sleeping unless I get something to eat. Then he jummps in my lap to see if he can have it.

I was thinking of trying to get some photos of fireworks, but we have been getting thunder and some rain and a lot of wind. I am not sure what it will do later. I am half asleep now, so I don't know if I will wake up in time, either. I have got the camera ready to go and I found my tripod, so if I do get out to take the pictures I will have everything ready for this try. I haven't done anything like that for about 30 years, so really don't know what I am doing with that. Heck, I have been lazy doing any photography most of the time, so I need to get back into it.

Good morning and Happy 4th. Fireworks started here about a week ago, but last night they got very noisy. Mutt curled up in the back of his crate, Duke well I don't know if he thinks he is keeping them out of the yard or trying to catch them, but runs like mad around the back yard. Last night I brought him in, big mistake, he about took the door down to make sure the back yard was safe. Then there is Lola, she is an 8 year old kitty and this is the first 4th I've had her. I didn't know what to expect. She sat at attention on the porch all night with that look she gives animals that dare to come to close to the porch.

Remember yes you need to enjoy the 4th and yes we all know you will eat and drink things that aren't on your diet. Just do it in moderation and remember soda and beer take the water out of you. Between that and the heat you need lots and lots of water. Also sometimes taking unruly children for a walk works wonders and lets you get some exercise too, and if it is someones else's children, they will love you for it.

Mutt is still fine. A nurse told me he is taking a dog strength of a people med, if he was a person and he was drinking lots of water and peeing good they wouldn't worry. The vet agreed. I'm just to keep an eye on him for a few days. Mutt eats more stuff he shouldn't then a 2 year old. I have to keep an eye on him all the time,

So far so good. I haven't given him any more. I want him to flush it out of his system. He is drinking good, peeing good, making lots of piles and eating good, so looks good so far.

Hope Mutt's joint meds don't cause him problems from him eating too many at once.

The temperature today is supposed to be cooler than it has been, but when I was out doing some shopping it sure felt hot to me. Had to get something for Cassie and Orzo so I don't run out before Pantry day in two weeks. Took Cassie for a walk this morning. Not long, because neither of us are in shape for that.

I took this picture of Orzo snuggling up to me like he does every night. Can't figure out to post direct here from the phone, so have to go through Flickr. www.flickr.com/photos/62222579@N00/1

There is a great difference between knowing and understanding: you can know a lot about something and not really understand it.

Charles Kettering

Good morning, mother morning when you don't have to work up a sweat, You are sweaty just walking out on the porch.

I forgot to put Mutts joint meds in the upper cabinet I came in the living room and he was finishing them off. I had just opened that bag. I expected to be calling the boss and telling her I was working the second half the day instead of the first half today, but no Mutt raced out the door when i got up and came back 10 min later for his walk. He walked for 55 mins with no problems or signs of discomfort. He did try to empty his water bowl when we got home, but then it is so hot and I downed a big glass of water.

When making your holiday plans, don't forget your fur babies. Most of them don't like fireworks and need a place they feel safe to hide. This will be my first 4th with Lola, so we'll see. Mutt will curl up in the back of his crate and whine if I leave the living room, Duke will race around the backyard trying to catch them. I live out in the country so no show like you have in the city, but everyone will try and out do their neighbor. And yes we not only have the things that make noise, but the ones that go way up and shower bright colors.

I am trying to figure out some more things I can sell. They won't bring in much, but maybe will pay for part of the brakes. I don't have much left that is worth anything.

Cassie and I spent a couple hours out in the front yard while I tried trimming things and cutting down the wild trees. Didn't get too far, but got some done. My poor rose bush I was working on looks terrible. It has all those rusty spots from the rain and is thin and tall, so it is falling over. I cut the top part off, but I'm afraid that the rusty stuff will kill it off. There is another small rose bush from those I planted years ago that is still living. I think at least one by the junipers is living, but I couldn't tell about the other one. I was taking the junipers back, too. One is so bad that I am going to try to just cut the whole thing out. It has two wild trees growing in the middle of it. The roses that Mom and Dad planted by the porch are still thriving, even with the wild trees growing in them, and so is the one by the back fence. I am worn out and ready for bed now and it isn't even 6:30.

Good afternoon, We had a beautiful day today, hot but beautiful. Mutt and I walked under a bright full moon this morning. If the fireworks hold off, we will walk again tonight.

Do what you can and try not to let the things you can't eat you up. Fancy wouldn't want that.

We have been having really nice hot weather the last few days and it is supposed to stay that way through the holiday. Well, July is normally our hottest month. I'm going to have to start setting the sprinklers out. Cassie is sure enjoying getting out more and running the fence with the dog next door.


I took the truck down to get the brakes worked on and it took longer than they thought. They brought me home, then I went and took the bus to go pick it up. I had to walk a bit from the bus stop. And that was HOT. It was 92 and then there was heat coming from the buses making it hotter. I will not be able to drive the truck much because the brakes damage was more than I thought (actually, I didn't think they were damaged, just needing new pads or shoes, whatever. It turned out to be shoes, drums and adjuster springs and I couldn't afford to have that done. So I am looking for the parts and Danny is going to do the work in a couple weeks. I was so upset today because if I can't get the brakes fixed I will never be able to see Fancy again and that is killing me.

Now I talked to my cousin and he said there is no way that the drums would be ruined from what they said they were and to just find a more honest place to take it. So I emailed another place to see if they will take the card that I have to pay for it. If they don't take it I will see if I can afford to have them see if all of that is necessary.

So I am trying to do that challenge that does things with pets, but I don't know how to get things posted. I got a selfie with Cassie and me finally. Orzo was just sitting over on my computer when I took his. I only finally got it started today.

You do not need a parachute to skydive...you only need a parachute to skydive twice.

Alice Thinks Sometimes Maybe Perhaps

Good morning, This morning I checked the weather before Mutt and I left for our walk. There was a storm about 75 miles south of us, so I grabbed my staff and off we went. Someone forgot to tell the weather. There was quite a light show to the east, the west was trying to get in the act, the clouds were so thick I couldn't see the clouds, then the sky started falling. Good thing when I saw the light show I decided we were walking close to home.

There is an old air force base close to us. It is still used when there is need for military fly over and is a life light base. They want to turn it into a commercial site for space launches.

A lady I use to work with was expecting her second when the Dr told her the baby wasn't viable and at best would live long enough to be an organ donor to other babies. The mother had a choice of aborting the baby or seeing if it would live long enough to be an organ donor. She had a rather nasty natural abortion before the baby was big enough to be a donor, but it has started quite a discussion, would you be able to carry a baby knowing it would never live to birth, and the only hope you had was that it lived long enough to be an organ donor and if it didn't you would have a very messy natural abortion most likely without warning so it could be anywhere, in a store, work or city bus.
