Dangit Efah!

I just can't seem to get rid of Efah's Upper Respiratory Infection! Everytime we go through the meds, he gets better and as soon as he goes off the meds he gunks up again. I'm frustrated enough to take him in to see my vet, but I don't have any funds to do so. I'll just have to keep him on the meds I have now and see if Laniq can get him in somewhere on the shelter's dime. I hate doing that because then I never get any real answers, though.

I just spent nearly $80 on Roz yesterday. She's got more steroids for her mouth and some Clavamox, an antibiotic that we hope will clear any infection. I also got ear mite solution for every cat in the house. Boy do I really hope all of that finally can knock out her rodent mouth! If it doesn't, then Dr. Huskey says there's some possibility of very rare issues. All very costly.

More frustration.

We had several adoptions yesterday, but Efah and Nimue both are still with me. Nimue was actually the better behaved of the two for once. For some reason Efah was growl-ey all day. In fact, a couple came up to adopt a cat who had seen him last week and remembered him and Wanted him. But he growled when the lady held him, so they adopted two other cats. Thanks, Efah. Thanks a heap!

Next week I am running the adopt a pet with a few other volunteers. Laniq is going to a graduation ceremony. I'm dreading the transport issue, but am looking forward to being in charge. It would be really awesome if we had as many adoptions and foster-to-adopts as we did yesterday. We adopted out 3 cats and 5 others went out as foster-to-adopt. It was a pretty good day yesterday. Even one of those adoptions was a shelter cat who has been with us for a long while.

I just want to curl up into a ball and cry.  And it's only just now Noon.

I am not a mule.  I cannot micromanage the world.  I can't even micromanage everything in my office!  Not if people don't Talk to me, or print things out that I'm supposed to know about.

I'm trying really hard not to fall apart here.  I need strength.  If you have any to spare, please send some my way.

And last but not least, I cannot absorb anybody else's drama or negativity right now.  If I pull away from supporting you when I am usually there, it's not because I don't approve or am judging you silently or anything.  It is because I just can't handle it.

hmm LJ is being weird

Blogger post on proper corset materials

Hey y'all.  I just noticed a debate going on over in corsetmakers regarding "proper boning materials."  I just posted a query blog about it.  If anyone would like to throw in their own two cents, that would be awesome!  Here's the link.

Nimue is probably coming home

I just got a call from Laniq.  Nimue's foster to adopt family called.  It doesn't sound good.

1.  Their cat got so mad it ran outside and refuses to come back in.  It was a stray they took in in the first place, so they're afraid that she just might decide to find another home.

2.  Nimue was sweet enough to sleep on their bed last night.  For a few minutes.  Then she got down.  And up, and down and up and down.  They said this went on until 3am when the decided to put her outside of their room.

3.  #2 did not make Nimue happy.  After being evicted from the room she proceeded to howl all night long.

Yes, I laughed as Laniq was telling me this story!  It's funny!  This is why I insisted they do a foster to adopt for a minimum of two weeks.  Nimue is Something Else isn't she??  I fully expect to get a phone call tonight or sometime this weekend for Nimue's return.

Well, that was One night of "one cat down".  Dunbar was Very pleased at Nimue's departure, I'm sure he'll be less pleased at her return.

Have you seen this image before??  It's a section of a larger piece and both myself and a fellow LJer would love to see the whole piece for more reference.



I keep thinking I've seen it before somewhere, but I can't put my finger on it, however on the other hand, if I HAVE seen it before, then Why on Earth didn't I pick it out immediately for my cotehardie references??

One of my favorite bands, Todesbonden, has been nominated for best symphonic albums of 2008 by metalstorm webzine.  It would be really cool if they won!  It's an online voting system, so please help them out and vote for them.

Here's some samples of their music.  Unfortunately, nobody's put a Youtube pice up for my Favorite song yet.  You can find Battle of Kadesh on their Myspace though.  http://www.myspace.com/todesbonden










Please send a message to Petland

This summer a Petland was opened across the parking lot from my work.  I was excited as the PetCo across the street had shut down.  Then I went in and saw that they were Selling puppies.  I really wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt eventhough it irked me that they didn't support local rescue groups.  I didn't spend any money in there and made the decision to not spend any ever, but I was going to keep my mouth shut about it unless it was proven that they were buying their puppies from puppy mills as I had suspected.

Unfortunately, as I was searching for the best reviewed piddle pads for Maizy (she's having a teetee issue lately) my fears were proven correct.  Please watch this video and send a letter for action.  And please be respectful in your letters that you send.  We won't get anywhere with threats or nastiness.  Also, the video isn't a horror story like the PETA videos.  It is sad, but you can rest assured it is not gruesome.
