Kyle Schwarber: World Series hero, Beefy Lad, better than you.



Illegal Hen

Had to put down the dumbest idiot and bestest boy ever today. He went suddenly. He was fine this morning, collapsed around noon, and was gone before 3. A tumor was leaking blood into his belly. He was 11 years old. I love you, Booth, you dumbass. May there be endless walks and infinite piles of people food on the other side. Also, hopefully you won't get your leash tangled up when they let you outside. It's not that hard to go around a single rock!

God, I miss you.

Forgive my leg and my daughter's foot.

Oh no, I'm so sorry

My fur jerk has a tumor on his leg. I had it looked at in February, before poo poo got wild, and the advice was to wait 3 months and come back in May for a re-evaluation. In the meantime, it's gone from the size of a small lemon to the size of a large orange. Meanwhile, the vet's office has emailed to say they're only doing emergency care and end of life care, because the state of Oregon wants them to be able to donate supplies to human hospitals if needed.

I don't know if it's an emergency, but...it's not NOT an emergency? And also, I live alone and he's my only companion at the moment. And we're about to go under quarantine in the Portland Metro.

I don't know what to do And what happened to Booth makes it sound like it could be more of an issue than I thought.

Is there emergency vet care in your area? I'm in Wisconsin and there's that service for me but I'd have to drive 45 minutes for pet 911. My local vet only keeps normal business hours during the week.

There is, but they're being extremely picky about what they consider an emergency because of a lack of supplies and resources. I am calling them in the morning, tho.

I mean, if you just call them and say ďIt has grown dramatically over a very short period of timeĒ that would constitute an emergency medical condition in a person, so why not a small friend?

Dinah,
You are a big bold and beautiful cat. At home you make sure everyone knows you're the big boss, so why do you have to be so nervous at the vet that we decided that we had to check for heart disease?

It turns out that you've got a perfectly healthy heart, but they had to sedate you, so I hope you enjoy your anesthesia hangover.

super-kittyplex!


Jackie seems to think that because both myself and my roommate are home all day, it gives her license to spend the entirety of the day sitting in front of the apartment door scratching and crying for 8 solid hours. It's insane. And she is beyond stubborn about it!

The thing is, we live in CA now instead of Maine, and that means like... differences. For instance, in Maine, every single home or apartment building has a sort of... Airlock/vestibule/covered-porch/whatever that is sort of in between "outside" and "inside" where people take off their snowy/muddy boots and their wet or snow-covered outerwear - this is so you don't repeatedly make wet/muddy messes in your living room or whatever - quite practical. Also, when Jackie would want to "go out" the door we go out of, she doesn't find the great outdoors but just a boring, cold hallway and another door.

However, weather is a bit different in Los Angeles, and pretty much every single reasonably-priced apartment has the front door just leading RIGHT into the living room. Hell, Jackie can see and feel the outdoors barely from the crack between the door and the frame and stares at it for hours. And I don't want to let her out because she is big and old and slow with poor reflexes, and while we don't live on a VERY busy street, people still zoom down it WAY over the speed limit at 40mph because our street happens to have an on/off ramp for the 110 at the end of it. So, yeah. I take her out supervised to an enclosed courtyard area further away from the street every morning, but the kitty feels she should be able to roam on her own. But Los Angeles is most certainly NOT Portland, Maine and that just ain't gonna happen!

My roommate picks up Jackie and cradles her like a baby for a few minutes now every time she goes to the door. I don't think it works too well as a "punishment" since the stupid kitty apparently LIKES being carried around in mid-air on her back with her back legs splayed up in the air absurdly... I should get a pic of that...

Bear has reached the point where he tolerates being the baby kitty because he gets my full attention and, if another person comes by, there is pettins all over.

Good job, Tater. You managed to chip your claw while trying to escape your carrier that you hate so much and get blood everywhere. Luckily we were going to the vet anyway and they fixed you up, but you had to get an extra shot and it's all your fault.

How did he do that, you ask?

I switched from a hard plastic carrier to one of the cloth duffel bag ones and it's so much better. My cat will actually go hang out in the cloth carrier once or twice a week, instead of treating it like the chamber of fear.

I like my soft carrier because the front unzips like a flap, and it also has a big double zipper on top, so even if Xander is being a wiggly little jerk-nozzle, I can still manage to stuff him into it without much effort. And it folds down flat for storage.

The sherpa-wrapped base platform is also nice, but I've had to wash it a few times after some post-anesthesia poos.

We had one of those! We had to get this one because he managed to destroy the zipper from the inside and escape (thankfully before we'd actually left the house).

I know cats like boxes but the orange one here has so fallen in love with this tomato box I think he's in danger of fusing with it. Occasionally the tuxedo interloper will show up but it doesn't stop creamsicle fuzz bucket there from spending 12+ hours a day in that box despite multiple beds and platforms designated for felines in the house.

That really makes me wonder if cats like some hard surfaces in their otherwise cozy/fluffy beds - maybe some hind brain desire for a tree branch to sleep on?
