Hello! I enjoyed your messages immensely! I really admire you also. I came here to the nursing home 3 years ago today (my late father's birthdate). I was in a wheelchair when I first came here, but medication helped get me back on my feet after a while. It may stop working some day; but, luckily, it's still working to this day. So the doctor keeps me on the same meds. On my last job, I was a proofreader for a Shetland Sheepdog magazine called "Sheltie Pacesetter." It had international readership and was published every 2 months. They have a website where you can view the magazine. Take care of yourself and write when you can. *HUGS* Phyllis :)
Hey Lady, awww, that sounds so sweet! Wow, amazed how she helped you when you need it. just. wow. And smart too so to see. Here: not always so peaceful, so good job :) I need a small watergun to keep the older lady of the house from fighting with the two males. (that are way bigger but are scared stiff) Carriers can be a big thing, indeed. the little Siberian was a breeze, my not-so-little mischief (adopted from shelter, breed unknown) puts up a hell of a fight and the orange cat... well, forget it. Good thing we live next door to the vet, 'cause I have to carry him in my arms. The Siberian and water is a not-so-much thing. She handles the drinking foutains (for cats) and sometimes drinks from the tap in the sink if I let her, but coming near of getting wet is a total no go. Snow was fun, though, couldn't get her off the balcony. Even took a stroll outside,but she was a little scared of the big outside world. Weird thing is, the lady walking by thought I was maltreating her. The fact that she is a Siberian breed didn't change her mind about it being too cold... People sometimes ;-) How was you Maine Coon with those? Too bad about migraine. Hope it blows over as soon as possible, even though I know these things can take more than a day sometimes. Take care!
well, science and / or doesn's scare me ( being shrink and all) ;-) I'm sorry for you that it's hard to find something that helps. And I'm sorry about your beloveds. You miss them, I guess? Maine Coons are cool though, close to my little one indeed :) they are maxi huggers. When i come home from work, she will sit on my foot until I sit down and then jump up and have a compulsory hugging 15 minutes. Did yours have that too? I have to be careful not to trip over kitteh when i'm in the kitchen. I too like the fact that I can play a little rough with her, play catsandwhich (hold a blanket up, kitteh jumps in and sneaks up on the others like a blanketghost) and the most amazing thing is that she plays and understands hide and seek. She plays it with us and with the other cats. they didn't really catch on, though :P Let's hope with a lot of trial and error and not too many germs around, you can find a rythm you can work with and have a cat again. I would miss my rugrats so much, I guess you do too. For me, I don't have the worst version of crohn, just very very tired sometimes and a weird diet that actually works. hugs!
Hey there torontokat. Thank you very much for accepting. I wish you many get wells, even though sometimes it is not just that simple. What happened? Thank you for being so honest with me, even though we just 'clicked' to get to know eachothers lolz. I have chrons disease, so I understand temporary -not-as-active-as-i-would-like-to-be situations. I'll try keep posting more lolz, and yeah, I unno about mods, new here, so we'll see. itteh bitteh kitteh is not so itteh bitteh anymore though (she is a Siberian, grows really fast and is going to be twice as big (at least) as the other cats. still cute though. hugz
i'm in the theater tech class, so we meet in the cafeteria. but the photography kids had a field trip to the zoo that day. so one of them thought he'd be funny and pass his hand in front of my face as we passed through the door. failing to take into account that we were passing through the door in opposite directions and at differing speeds. his hand went WHACK! right into my upper lip and my nose. the little flap of flesh that keeps the upper lip and the gums stuck together got torn, and that FINALLY healed together a couple of days ago. I can eat again!
