so, the cat ****** was trying to give me didn't come though, for reasons beyond both of our control.

today i went to tri county humane society and scoped out this kitty:

http://i.imgur.com/hj1Z1GS.jpg?1

Gonna go back on Tuesday with a note from my landlord OKing the pet and then I should be able to get her. It has to get approved or whatever but everything should be good to go. She has some eye issues so is considered "special needs" but really should only need eye drops 2x a day.

Her name is Layla but they spelled it wrong in the website (Lele - they had no idea what cat I was talking about when I got there). I kinda like Lele though. Or I could just rename her altogether. whatchu think

I'm happy for the two of you! :)

As for her name: that might come naturally once she's home. Either she's a Lele, a Layla or someone else, you'll see it. How old is she?

reprise85

she is one year and a few months, i think it was three but it might have been two

she also has a sibling there with the same issues but they arent really bonded so i can just take her

I feel extremely bad for that whole thing falling through. The cat was just one of the many things that guy did to piss us right the fuck off. If you still want the cat tree though, I'll be happy to bring it down one of these weekends.

I would love the cat tree if you want to bring it. :) No rush and I definitely didn't expect you to still offer. Maybe we can actually make a day out of it and do something fun.

excellent. it might be around spring break-ish (first week of march) that we come down there. i have to deliver musical equipment as well to relatives in miami so it might just turn into a little vaycay.

Layla is ridiculously cute too. I'm hoping it all comes through for her. One of our kitties has some tear duct issues and we have to put drops in his eyes regularly.

reprise85
01-31-2013, 07:36 PM
I hope it comes through too. I wasn't able to get them any records on my last cat because it's been 5+ years but the person I talked to said that should be fine. My dad also got a cat from this same place like two years ago and my family has had tons of cats with records I could get for them if they just wanted to see something.

Hope to see you in March then :D

I think C-day is going to be Tuesday. They said if I come in early they can prob do it same day. If they can't then it should be Thursday.

cat rescue is amazing. my mom feeds a few strays cats that live on/in/by the lake and this past summer one of them had a kitten. now the mother pushed it away and it seems lost now that its cold out. my mom's solution was to prop open the door so it could come in. which it does.

last night i watched peter jackson's remake of king kong and i mean while i think it's sort of a terrible cgi summer hit cliche ridden micropenis ensemble cast movie i was terribly moved by it even though i kinda know i shouldn't be.
i suppose i wouldn't care if it was just another story about humans but the fact that it was essentially a love story about a human and a majestically powerful pet that gets destroyed by our abhorrent species made me kind of emotional

she came out a couple times on her own. she gets scared of noises though. hoping she explores during the night and then tomorrow while i'm at work. she definitely made big steps. i really hope tomorrow morning she'll come out because i need to wash her eyes and give her her drops 2x a day. it won't happen tonight, so the last time was around noon. the vet tech showed me how and was so happy to see her get adopted. told me he never thought she would because of her eye problems.

This is how it happened. There are a few people (including myself) within our circle of friends that have extracted animals from shitty situations via illegal means. These were situations that, if the animal were to be reunited with their "legal owner" then, charges would have to be filed against said owner.

Ian came to acquire Boris via means he wouldn't tell us about, but since he was our friend, we thought his motives were altruistic. In the past 4 months or so, he became really sketchy, and it all seemed to coincide with him starting to date this artsy fartsy girl, exhausting scholarship opportunities and suddenly deciding to move to LA. He ended up owing another friend of ours about 3 months rent and utilities.

Because he was wanting to move out to LA in such a hurry, he was prepared to screw over his roommate by skipping out of the lease, and leaving his cats with people that he knew would end up declawing them. We picked up the slack on his rental obligations and ended up subletting from him (a decision which has a bunch of other bullshit associated with it).

He took the cat to the vet. Thanks to brilliant microchip technology, we were instantly able to learn that Boris's given name is Whiskers and that her family has been looking for her for over a year.

We are so incredibly pissed at him as well as embarrassed by his bullshit. The wife used her rescue connections to try and find Whiskers a home and he fucked Erica over by proxy. Why? Well, there's no logical reason that I can discern. If he extracted Whiskers from a crappy situation, why was he content to just hand her right back over to her family?

It makes me sad and pissed off and happy that it will be a while before I see that fucker's face again.

Wet food can eventually lead to gum/teeth issues. Use dry food sometimes

reprise85
02-07-2013, 07:38 PM
she was brought into the shelter on 4/19/11 @ 3 lbs with all kinds of infections. Her medical history is ridiculously long. but anyway, i'm thinking 3 lbs is like 2-4 months old (considering she's only 8lbs now, she's a small cat)... so i'm just gonna say her birthday is 2/5/11 so that means i brought her home on her second birthday! :D

I'm leaving dry food out as well. I left out 1/2 a cup about 24 hrs ago and like half of it is still there. Trying to figure out the best amount to put out to avoid it going stale.

I'm using Purina One Beyond which seems like the best supermarket (aka affordable) cat food. It doesn't have corn which the internet seems to think is a shitty filler for cat food.

her eyes are starting to look almost normal sometimes

reprise85
03-30-2013, 01:13 PM
so... we've been having some problems. cleaning her eyes 2x a day is making her miserable and i'm getting triggered and feeling like i'm abusing her (i know i'm not but how could she know that?). it's kinda like doing something for a kid that they hate but is necessary and for their own good.

so i decided to not clean her eyes for a couple days and see how they look. and, surprisingly, they look pretty good. i finally put some drops in last night after ~72 hours and on close inspection they look pretty good too. she has some crusties, but they don't look painful. and she's started playing again and coming out from under the bed again and seems less afraid of me, though still cautious.

i can't express how much her being scared of me has triggered me. i really hope i can keep the eye maintenance down. the shelter said it was possible her condition could improve and it *seems* to have done just that with about two months of careful maintenance.

so I think the next step is establishing a long term vet and seeing what they say about it.

i'm just really relieved that she's starting to feel less afraid. she still won't come on the bed at all and won't let me approach her (but i think the second one is just her personality and is fine). i hope i didnt fuck up our chance for having close contact :/

im using treats to get her to come more and more out from under the bed and so she can see that i'm not going to grab her. and i put her original pet bed back on the floor. basically i'm trying to win her trust like i originally did. she actually has 3 pet beds now (and uses all three) but she hasn't used the one on the bed in at least two weeks so... back on the floor... she went back on it within 5 minutes of me putting it out there :)

i'm trying to keep in mind that it's like getting a special needs kid, they're special needs for a reason and i signed on for this... i'm not trying to say it's really like having a kid but it's the only analogy i can think of

i just want her to be happy and comfortable

thanks guys.

within 5 minutes of me coming home tonight she came out from under the bed and started doing kitty thangz around the house (mostly playing with a qtip). yay. it felt so bad with her just hiding under the bed all the time. like i started obsessing hardcore.

the last time i gave her drops where it really triggered me i had kinda pulled her out from under the bed and she tried to get away in such a way that made me worry she'd pull her arm out of her socket or pull it in such a way that she'd get really hurt. and i really did feel like i could have hurt her without meaning to, and i obsessed at work and almost left work because i was upset but then i started fucking up at work and got obsessed over that instead. it was the shittiest day i've had in a long time. i got lucky because i had a therapy session scheduled for after work that day, which almost never happens but did because my therapist had taken our normal day off for passover

and i got invited for an easter bbq with a coworker and her family tomorrow :smoke:

things are okay again

noyen
03-30-2013, 11:44 PM
good to hear. only advice i'd have is never try to put kitten in a position where you're having to scare her, even if you have to give it eye drops. try waiting to give them when she's already on you maybe? ignore the shit out of it and it will start loving you. i dunno. cats are dicks.

reprise85
03-30-2013, 11:49 PM
the problem was the more i gave them to her the less she came around me so that was at the point where it was the only way to give them to her was to grab her whenever i had any chance

it's not the eyedrops are the problem - and as soon as she starts coming to me, i'm going to keep giving them to her at least once a day. it's holding her to clean her eyes that is the problem. you don't even have to hold her to give her drops (well, i should say didn't)

but yeah you're totally right, i know better now

reprise85
03-30-2013, 11:50 PM
i think now my small problem is i've given her so many treats in the past few days she's not eating her regular food

i've been trying out some ultra healthy canned foods, see which ones she'll like. i tried this kind called Weruva that looks like human food and was healthy but she didn't seem to like it very much. now trying this blue wilderness stuff. good thing she doesn't eat very much or it'd cost a small fortune (as cat food goes) it's almost $2 a can and at her size she's "supposed" to eat 1 1/2 cans a day but instead eats less than half

03-30-2013, 11:59 PM
theres probably some good way to psyche the cat out so it doesnt associate you with whatever its scared of. i dont know :(. throw all the "supposed to" stuff out the window and go with the flow i guess with this complicated little cat. youre both getting to know each other still, be super patient. it'll work out yo.

i grew up with between 2 and 8 cats at all times basically... and it def seemed that way to me (they wanted other people besides me, the one who wanted them/chased after their attention). but then i just had some cats later that were super friendly to everyone, and then i had one who just loved me out of 4 other people in the house (the kitty in my avatar). so i guess they're all just different. they do seem to drift to one person in particular or one place in particular. there was a cat who loved and would sleep with anyone on the guest bed. didnt matter who. and no other bed but that one.

they are complicated little creatures.

wet food is generally enough to change a cat's mind about just about anything. a good way to lure any cat from hiding is to put a little bit of wet food on your finger, and they will realize that you're not so bad.

so even though the experience of actually putting the drops in can be really difficult, if you sandwich it between two good experiences with wet food, it won't seem so bad.

hey reprise i just started reading the last couple pages of this thread but i have dealt with an eye infected cat before - you may have tried this but use a warm wet wash cloth to "wash" its face and heat up the eye goop/crust if there is any but just to relax it in your arms - i've found that you can usually slip some eyedrops in during this time once the cat relaxes enough (if at all). they should because they like the warm wet cloth over their eyes when their eyes are shitty just like anyone would.

you can sit beside its food bowl and begin this process slowly after its eaten a bit/while it is eating. or maybve after a strict brushing if you do that so the cat is a bit worn out. point being you want to get at it when its vulnerable. (insert jokes here).

if anything this will give you time to figure out how youre going to (em)brace the cat while you drop its eyes. i have found, as silly as it sounds, to make sure you're thouroughly protected from its claws i will put on a barn jacket and an oven mitt because just that extra confidence helps you do a thorough job. the trick is not the draw the process out into an agonizing event which you've indicated the problem is that you try not to do this and often can't get the drops in. hope this helps!

thanks slunken. i originally was using a washcloth but it didnt seem to work well and i switched to gauze which yeah probably made the process much worse fpr her and made me draw it out more... thanks for the advice. her eyes were much cleaned but if she's going to be miserable fuck it they don't need to be that clean.

i think in the next couple days she might be back to normal and i'll try the washcloth thing. thanks! very helpful

if their eyes get bad enough they will crave your relief. but also on my end it was a mom cat that just had kittens (not immediately mind you but within that month) so it was fairly compliant - nonetheless it was still a sketched out stray.

so as most of you know thanks to eulogy i live with my parents at the moment and they have this GORGEOUS cat named sophie that's all black but for a white chin and bib with white paws and somehow i've managed to become her BOY i'm not sure why but she prefers me, spends most of the day with me if she's not outside and is currently sitting in my lap, happy as a clam.

there's something about earning a cat's love that's more rewarding than a dog's because as you all know i'm a dog owner some 10 years now but with cats they really PICK you.

and this cat is amazing, i call her the mila jovovich of the cat world, she's not only a supermodel but an action star. total huntress. love this cat, don't want to give her up :#

I, the lord of welcome mat,
I have heard my people nap.
All who dwell in sleep and rest
My paw will wake.
I who hunt in dark of night,
I have not a meal in sight.
Who will bear my food to me?
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, cat.
Is it I, cat?
I have heard you meowing in the night.
I will go, cat,
If you lead me.
I will pour the kibble in your bowl.

okay so

the vet did some tests and she has some corneal ulcerations. this may or may not be chronic. she also yet again showed positive for not making sufficient tears

he gave me an antibotic, topical pain reliever and something that encourages tear production.

he said it is imperative that i give her these drops no matter what i have to do.

i just took the frame off my bed and put the box spring on the floor. she is now unable to hide under it.

this is necessary to prevent permanent blindness.

i have an appointment next week and depending on the results of these three eye medicines we will be going to an eye specialist to talk about surgical possibilities.

my crazy ex decided to teach our cats a lesson about going outside by letting them go outside in a wooded area they had no business going out in. like seriously, rural louisiana is no place to let cats roam around by themselves.

they came back in like a minute and he refused to let them in.

i got them in a few minutes and let them in and cleaned them up and then got the shit beat out of me for it.

bout an hour later we are about to go to work (this is like 4AM now) and he asks me to check on the cats and i find one of them dead. it is obvious in hindsight that he killed this cat or at the very least found her dead before i did.

true story

hard for me to be unbiased about this whole thing because of that but uh we had this convo before. domesticated cats are not the same as wild cats or other felines. doesn't mean they can't survive or like living mostly outside, but they thrive the most when they have good people taking care of them and live the longest inside of homes.

Then the tortured female lead finds the cat dead, which ends up being a prelude to second act, which includes at least one nudy scene (for R rating) and the death of at least one well meaning neighbor.

Also, I feel like it was a scene from Sleeping With The Enemy.

The boy cat is all over me because i was gone for two days. he has separation anxiety. He's been claiming me a lot. Like he does that anyway but a lot more today. he'll come to you and just basically put his whole front body on your leg or arm or shoulder then just purr and look at you like"HI! IM HERE! PET ME K?"

Both probably won't let me sleep in peace tonight. I mean they'll try to lie on me all the time (they do that the first night im back if i've been gone) which is nice when i'm awake (therey were both doing it earlier) but i can't sleep with a cat on me unfortunately. I need to move too much and what happens is subconsciously if theyre on me i wont move even if i'm sleeping and then i wake up with a a bad cramp or a backache. I'd like it a lot better if i could sleep on them instead. Like a mattress of cats but like...it wouldn't hurt them.

Your cat looks awesome.

My girlfriend and I want to get a cat when we move in together. I want to get one when it's a kitten and raise it, she wants to get an older cat that is more independent and cuddleable. I figure that it doesn't take that long for a kitten to grow, and isn't difficult to look after a kitten. She doesn't want to be involved with raising it and will probably get an older cat if I get a kitten anyway. But then it's not a certainty that they'll take kindly to each other.

Clearly our relationship is an unrepairable mess and we should break up.

Her dad lives on his farm and has many, many stray cats. He feeds them all because he's too kind-hearted not to. He's also too kind hearted to eliminate them all, most of which are sick, feral, deformed, or at least flea-ridden. A few months ago his son visited to drown them all, but there were still some that they were unable to find, and they bred their population back up again.

There are some that are reasonably healthy now that are raising their kittens with care, but the situation hasn't improved much.

its frustrating that i just gave another dose of anti flea stuff to my cats (had an awful infestation and ive been doing it for three months now) and NOW after not getting bitten for weeks, i get bitten again. they're leaving the ships so to speak i'm sure. My arms and legs were an embarrassing mess before i started some months back. And they kept biting me even as the treatment was ongoing cause it takes a while to kill them all. It's pretty horrible. You can still see the marks on my arms (well cause then i turned to scabs and then i kinda picked at them cause i have this problem with scabs...)

Even worse, they never bit my gf once. But id wake up with like 8 fresh bites a day no mater how much clothes i had on (at some point i wore gloves and thick socks to bed, not kidding) So..never let a flea infestation get out of hand (i only did cause i couldn't afford the medecine)

i tried letting it get into the garden where it came from, where the tree was, but that didn't seem to be working. it didn't want to. other escapes from the street with the scary traffic didn't appeal to it either.
it was still quite small. maybe it was looking for its mother?
it scratched my neck. little bastard.

Took a bunch of pics yesterday. I shall post three series of cats pics. This is Dexy. Later i'll do Jumby and later still both together.


A perfect kitty circle:
http://s25.postimg.org/4ob1rdqb3/dexcircle.jpg


Dex likes mirrors, "looks, there is cat in mirror! we has to free it!". Actually shes a clever cat and she's know it's her. she's more admiring herself. The best is when she clmb on the sink to do it in the cabinet mirror.
http://s25.postimg.org/na97rvdkf/dexmirror1.jpg

http://s25.postimg.org/dofnbkmen/dexmirror2.jpg

She's actually closing the door here more than staring at herself, why is she closing the door? (sorry about the hairy legs, and yes there is a butter knife on the floor, i need it to turn off the hot water faucet....)
http://s25.postimg.org/eznek1i0f/dexmirror3.jpg

Because she hears someone she doesn't like very much
http://s25.postimg.org/cfwd3oju7/dexdoor.jpg

"HEY GUYS WHATSUP!?" I mean she likes him and will clean him and stuff when he goes lie against her but most of the time if he's not sleeping, she's just tolerating him.
http://s25.postimg.org/3w8ds6m3z/Jumbdoor.jpg


This is what she does when she wants attention. Comes to me, starts purring and touches me with her paw until i pet her. Sometimes she licks my hands too. Well...if she wants petties. If she wants to play she'll either paw at a drawer and meow (toys end up under the dresser a lot and so if i open the lower drawers she can get to them) or bring a toy on the bed, stare at me and bitch and bitch until i make it move (seriously some days she can torment me endlessly this way). She loves balls of paper especially. She fetches. If you throw, she bring it back.

As anyone who ever owned a cat and has a guitar case knows, if you open it, they will come.

Jumb Dumb is like 17 pounds. He's huge. and squishy. But he's not like fat. He's just a big cat.

jumb dumb? really? have you no sense of the dignity inherent in all felines?

my last kitty was called bagheera. my next one will be shalmanasser or sargon (i haven't decided).

yeah. two drops a day. one heavy duty artificial tears, and one that encourages natural tear production. but her eyes are usually opened almost to the level of a normal cat's. they aren't in those photos because the flash made her close them. i'm going to try to get some pics during the day today.

i also have to clean her butt because she doesn't do it for some reason. baby wipes!

We had 4 cats for a long time. Opal, Pearl, Shredder, and Max. Max died this past summer. We adopted an older kitty named Marrianne in October. Then Opal died in November. Marrianne died of liver failure this month. So now we have Shredder and Pearl, who are both over 10 but in good health. Unfortunately with cats it seems that they can go downhill quite quickly despite being just fine most of their lives.

YEah. after ten it's a bit of a crapshoot. A few years ago my gf had four cats. Then 3 reached around 15 and they just within like a year and a half just all went. Mine that died two years back was 16 and then she started getting heart trouble. Two days later she was gone. Well i had to put her down...

lol @ dumdeedum :)

my last kitty, Bagheera (may his immortal soul rest in peace) had many names too. Begheerums, Gheera, Moca, Chitty-chitty-bang-bang are just a few.

My mom would call him "debelica" which means fatso in Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian. :mad:

My brother called him "The Tower of Angband" cos when Gheerums sat up straight, with his forepaws before him, his ears would stick out, giving him an uncanny resemblance to Sauron's citadel.

This is a blurry pic but i never manage to get one when dexy is cleaning him cause she thinls he's filthy. She both loathes him and loves him. They're not related but she kinda treats him like a mom might. She was 4 when i got him. He's like one and a half. Is was fun playing with kitten but now kitten is very big and is no fun any more cause he wins all fights. So she just gets really mad at him when he tries to play. She wonders what happened to fun kitten.
