Our fuzzy family members become so important to us. We still miss our Wingnut -- the hardest thing I have ever had to to was make the decision to let him go -- and I felt so guilty that I didn't realize sooner just how sick he was.
Woubbie - okay, I figured it must be some sort of video game. It must be a really good one because you like to play it so much. I have a membership with Pogo, and I usually can be found playing the Scrabble game. But they have just tons of games available. It helps me chill out sometimes, and it definitely can take my mind off of food because I get so absorbed in it. I would like to have an Avatar picture for myself.

That is such a hard decision, Kris, especially the timing of it. My regret with my cat is that I waited too long. The vet kept saying we could try something new that might help, and I went along with it. I wish I had let her go a lot earlier, for her sake, not mine.
Poor Tater! I hope they can find out what's wrong.
Cloe whimpered last night for quite a while before going to sleep. She isn't putting weight, or very little, on one of her back legs so I assume that's what's causing the pain but not sure. I suppose it could be her tumor too. We talked this morning that maybe it's time to put her to sleep. All she does is sleep and we don't want her to be in unending pain before we let her go. DH called the vet's office, he wasn't in today but another doc was there. They said they'd have her look over Cloe's chart and call us back, but never did. I think they close at noon. She does seem a little better today so I think we'll just see how she does. If it gets too bad there's a 24 hour animal hospital we could take her to. Just trying to give her lots of love in the meantime.

Two Xrays and they didn't find anything, but apparently the kind they suspect is hard to see. No giardia. They gave me some antibiotics to give Tater (he does NOT like taking antibiotics!) and if he isn't better by Monday they'll do an ultrasound.
I feel so bad for poor little Tater!! I hope there is something definitive wrong that can be easily fixed. I hate to see a little furry thing in pain. Maw, I hope you're feeling better soon too!
My Saturday is shaping up to be fairly quiet and that's a good thing. I've got to do some chores at my desk, a little client work, deliver some stuff to my mom (and get back out without any blood loss), and then I'm going to try to relax and read and watch a movie! You know, like a day off??

Got up early this morning to miss the traffic -- I decided to get my 2 hour drive out of the way, then work at my parents condo for a few hours before they arrive. I will spend the morning working -- got some grading schools and effective instruction data to work on for a few hours, then when my parents get here we'll hang out for a bit then head for my nephews' football Jamboree.
Maw - Last year, I started adding echinacea to my daily supplements. It's supposed to strengthen your immune system. Last year, I caught flu bugs and colds when normally, I never get sick. I have been doing well since I added that to my daily intake. (Knock on wood.)
Heidi - sounds like a lot of work for a Saturday. My day sounds about the same as yours.
Woubbie - I spend a lot of time on emails. What is WoW?
Sparkpeople hasn't been sending my emails to me for the last two days. I'm not sure how to rectify that. I think I will join the team again and maybe that will reactivate the mailings.
George S. Patton-You're never beaten until you admit it.
Have a bunch of to-do's on my list, but nothing terribly pressing. Need to get going at this point, though. I spend way too much of my Saturday mornings cleaning out my email inbox and Sparking. Follow that up with an hour or two of WoW and there goes my day!
Take it easy Maw, over do it and you'll be down longer. Rest!
I'm having coffee doing my posts, then I'll do breakfast. I have all manner of stuff to do and it's nice so I'm going to split the difference and do a bit of inside and outside and not too much of either.
After breakfast it's exercise time- taking the dog out for an hour or 2 then he's getting a bath so he can dry in the sun. He needs brushing something awful.
A bit of gardening, change the bed, 2-3 loads of laundry and call it good. IF I do anything else it'll be an added bonus.
Have a great Saturday everyone!
1. Stop wasting time! Save Money!
2. Get organized- mise en place as the French say.
Every day this side of the sod is a good day- not sure who said it

Still waiting to hear what's up with Tater, my foster kitten. The vet who came into the shelter yesterday thought it was an obstructed bowel, after Tater started shrieking and writhing and panicking from the pain of having his abdomen palpated. The shelter sent Tater to an animal hospital for a barium enema and xrays, but it was late by the time they squeezed him in and the shelter hadn't heard anything by the time everyone left. I'm supposed to hear this morning. If it is an obstruction they'll have to do surgery and I'll get him back probably Tuesday or Wednesday. If not, they're going to look for giardia, and if not that, they'll just try another antibiotic on the assumption that there's something nasty in the intestines. Poor baby.
Other than that, I skipped the Farmers Market this morning, because I just don't have the energy to do that and work at the library today. I called the library and said I'd be in to cover lunches but wouldn't go earlier than that and might not stay. This darn cold is sapping all of my strength and energy.
