We had nasty crisis last night just as Mr MS rrived home from work. He comes in the door calling out ‘Honey, I’m home, how was your day?” Then he walked in on the scene of cat yak across two rooms and a huge pond of cat pee around the litter tray and paper towels in scrunched up bunches all over. Poor HRH ate a sachet of Whiskas but I…[Read more]
Wow, short Cafe.
There are auctioneers in my family background in the UK. Maybe that is where I get my fascination with antiques from. Sadly I can’t afford some of the things I see but satisfy myself with small pieces of china.
Earth Day is here again. This is another chance to, if not be the solution, at least be less of a problem for Mother Earth. Don’t just treat this just as an incentive to pick up coke cans on a jogging trail (definitely go do that, as well). We can’t change everyone but we can looking at our habits and see the type of impact we have on our e…[Read more]
Sooo quiet today!
Well here goes … lights … camera … auction! 😉
Attended some vol org auctions, and some time back won a ‘puter system at an auction where I bought ticket but did not attend.
Reading over some of yest l8r posts. A button dissing kids would IMHO be rude, it’s not one over the other. Even though I’m not into kids at all. But…[Read more]

I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed my day! Suddenly it is sunny, and while still below normal seasonal values, far less frigid than it has been (if catless, I would have become depressed in the past few weeks). There are brave little flowers popping up – as well as the planted ones, I saw my first dandelion – very late for those pesky…[Read more]

That’s an odd button, Lagatta. I understand the point they’re trying to make but you’re right that is insensitive.
We’re having a nice slushy snow storm. It started last night but it’s moving mid country and maybe won’t bother KZ and JJ. It has been so dry here that we began statewide fire watch two weeks ago. This weather is supposed to…[Read more]

I was at a pet food and supplies shop where they also foster cats (but are alas catless at the moment) and help a lot at adoption days for cats and dogs. They have all kinds of cute buttons, tote bags and t-shirts to support adoption, but one annoyed me – in big letters, along with cat pics, CATS NOT KIDS. I told the employeee I really don’t want…[Read more]
Some of the planet’s biggest personalities, loudest voices and quickest talkers are celebrated on Auctioneers Day. It’s a time to remember that auctioneering is one of the world’s most ancient professions, having begun more than 2,000 years ago. In fact, the very first auction was held about 500 B.C. in Babylon. The late 17th century saw the e…[Read more]

I enjoy volunteering. As the saying goes, cats can’t speak for themselves so I will.
I almost made earlier but when I was running errands and stopped at the store, I couldn’t turn the key to start my car. After waiting for a tow, getting a tow, waiting at the repair shop, I learned the ignition lock cylinder is kaput.…[Read more]

I’ve done a lot of volunteering for cats, but am also a longterm volunteer for a tenants’ association. And no, I certainly dont think all landlords or landladies are evil! The question is the kind of strange behaviour some property owners exert.
It is also important to remember that volunteers mentor youth, and provide them positive outlets for…[Read more]

Hi everyone – Looking forward to the arrival of your spring-like temps tomorrow, KZ. It’s been so cold!
I’d nominate my sister, aka JerseyJill, as volunteer of the year. She’s a full time grandma and does a lot with the shelter. Tomorrow is their annual yard sale. I donated a bunch of stuff, but I bet I will come home with a bunch of stuff.…[Read more]

Good morning all.
HRH ate a full pouch of Whiskas chicken and turkey this morning. 😀
So happy that she has a good feed in her.
Like KZ, I volunteered as a classroom aide when the girls were at primary school and helped with any students that needed remedial reading, I also served 6 years as secretary on the PTA. I thoroughly seeing the…[Read more]
Here is a link for you to read up on FeLV, but the best place to start would be your vet. You have done everything correct by getting her there and getting the medications she needs for her health such as dewormer, antibiotics for URI, good food, bathing, etc. and…[Read more]

Just about to head on out for well-needed rest – this week was a tough one!
I’ve done some volunteering, generally in the area that my “career” as based on, writing and editing. Which somehow segued into French to English translation/adaptation. When there is a budget I get paid for certain projects.
“De facto” landlord sent me a most nasty…[Read more]
It sounds like an upper respiratory infection. Like a cold in a human. Very common in kittens, especially since their immune systems are so immature. My Celeste had the same thing (and she’s around the same age). It resolved after a day on antibiotics. Very easy fix, but please get her a prescription!
I just recently (Monday night of this week, to be exact) rescued a kitten from the underside of a moving car. My girlfriend and I were walking home and heard the little screaming meows, and upon realizing where she was, ran into the road and stopped the woman (who thankfully was at a stoplight, had no idea and was very cooperative…[Read more]
