What's Up


I love this saying....a friend with a son who has Down's Syndrome sent me a video that contained this saying. Priceless.

I guess that is why our kitchen looks like this:


Seems our Radar is in kidney failure. Early failure. Good chance we can arrest it. He is so good about his sub q fluids every morning. Takes all of about 3 minutes to treat him. Looks much more difficult that it is. Radar is a quiet deaf cat and very cooperative. He's on a low protein diet now and he's even excited to eat it. Here's hoping he will feel better soon and his thirst and labs will normalize.

NORMAL is just a cycle on a washing machine...because we picked up a foster momma kitty this week too. It is kitten season. She's miserable, stoic and hasn't eaten the last 24 hours...maybe laboring later? She's isolated up in Al's old room, the kitten nursery.

What's not normal about my passions? Knitting, Cats and Blogging??

Oh, here's wishing you and the kitties all the best! I think doing whatever you can to take care of the ones you love is completely normal :)

then we have Jamie Curtis and her new normal with Activia---I could use a new normal one with a hubband that actually has work and gets paid accordingly because this new normal blows!!! Oh well, maybe the luck of the Irish will shine upon us!!!

Have fun with new kittens in the house, I midwifed many a time!

My heart is in my throat. Best wishes, Radar! You're lucky your parents are very comfortable with IVs. I had to do them for the first Shadow (Pop's sheltie before the now-Shadow)...

It is so difficult when animals, especially pets, suffer from health conditions. Thankfully, you are able to administer the IVs and can monitor Radar's progress. Best wishes to Radar and to you.

So sorry to hear about Radar. I hope he is healthy again soon.

As for normal--I'm not sure I ever knew there was such a thing as normal. If so, I've never reached it!

Hope Radar is doing better soon. Good wishes being sent to the impending-mama cat. Hope her birthing goes easy and she has healthy kittens. Can't wait to see pictures.

Oh Dear. Thank goodness for you being aware that something wasn't right and getting Radar to the vet and knowing what was going on to help the dear baby. I'm glad he's being good about taking his meds and you are comfortable administering them. Good luck to all. g

Mocha and Ginger send lots of good wishes to Radar and Mama. Are you going to keep one of her babies? You sure have cranked out lots of socks. I'm fighting with a pair right now...messed up on the pattern. Argh! Love the shawl yarn, BTW.

You're a great nurse, even to the animals.
