RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Reading this thread reminded me that there are two kinds of recreational boaters: sailors and powerboats. We sailors are about the journey. Powerboaters are about the destination. Fulltimin is a sailor...

RE: 4th of July - what are you having?

WLToo smoked a brisket and a chicken, then fried some venison sausage. Served it with potato salad, macaroni salad, Jello-O salad, and lots of iced tea. Best brisket he's done yet.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Seems the family lost interest when they found out the medical bills were huge and there will be more before Randolph is fully healthy again. Also, they were in violation of city ordnances requiring cats be on a leash when outside, so they were about to get a citation for that. Finally, they lost possession when Randolph was reported as a neighborhood stray back on 25 May. It's a long, convoluted story, but the upshot is Randolph is ours now. He and Czarny go to the vet tomorrow; Randolph gets a followup visit and his last inoculation, and Czarny gets his annual exam and shots. Stephany, his previous family lives about 45 minutes away from us. He was wandering around in my sister's neighborhood there. Leoghaire and another doe were in the meadow this afternoon, with the other doe's fawn. At least one fawn survived this awful spring. Still no word from Texas Wildlife as to what killed Leoghaire's yearling. It's still golden hour, so I'm going outside to admire the color. Later, y'all.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Well, his chip is registered, and the photo was of him and a little girl. So I initiated a "found cat" notice, and five minutes later, they called. His name was Oliver, he lived with four dogs, and they were pretty desperate to get him back. So Oliver will go home on Friday. Czarny will be most relieved...

RE: Don't Panic

Our county had the 4-H animal show online. Not sure exactly how they did it, but the kids still got to "show" their critters and get ribbons.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Randolph came through the surgery just fine. He's being rather subdued right now, as his backside is a mite sore. I made a napping spot on the floor in front of one of the sliding glass doors, but he's insisting on laying on the door mat in front of the south door. He does have a chip, and the vet gave us the number. I'll do a little research to see if it's been registered. If not, fine. If so, we'll think about contacting the previous folks. Wasn't incline to at first, but since Randolph didn't seem bothered by the harness, maybe he was an indoor kitty who only went out on harness, and slipped out one day. OTOH, no apparent shots, not neutered, was sick -- not good. Thinking, thinking.... Czarny had another lovely day outside. Now that he's not being swooped, he's bouncing up and down from the deck to the garden and back, dashing about crazily, and in general really enjoying himself. Not so much fun coming back inside, though. We closed the laundry room door to keep him from hiding behind the dryer. That's also where the Litter Robot is, but Randolph's box is in the spare room and Czarny has no problem using it. We'll open it at night after Randolph is closed in that bedroom, then close it in the morning again. It's past time Czarny learned to deal with the new cat. Well, it's dinnertime. Later, y'all.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Thanks, Stephany. Will send that to SF tonight. We were in the swimming pool a bit ago and saw something rather large crawling up the side of the garage. WLToo got out, grabbed the binoculars, and saw it was a tarantula hawk hauling a paralyzed tarantula to its lair, wherever that is. Huge wasp, that one definitely does not want to be stung by, although it is not aggressive. Tarantula Hawk One website said if one does sting a human, just lay on the ground and scream for three minutes, then the pain will go away. Just sit down and start screaming! I'll watch my step... Randolph goes in for neutering in the morning. We have to put away all his food at 2200 tonight, but since we don't go to bed until midnight normally, we'll have to put away Czarny's, too, until we shut Randolph into his bedroom. Then first thing in the morning, we have to take up Randolph's water and prevent him from coming out to the main room, where the water fountain is. Going to be a mite complicated. At least Czarny will have an entire day in the house without having to be paranoid that the little guy will run up on him and disturb his relax. We haven't had to do this in nearly ten years, and Spotacus was actually pretty laid back about the whole process. Czarny and Rudy came to us already fixed. I need ice cream. Later, y'all.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

TF went to his GP today, as the UTI meds don't seem to be working. He'll see his cardiologist tomorrow about the heart rate. He's not doing near as well as he had been before the UTI. I kind of wonder if the UTI meds are what set off the elevated heart rate, considering how strangely he reacts to so many meds. Czarny had a pleasant day yesterday. He has finally noticed the barn swallows are not swooping on him anymore, as the babies have fledged. He can sit on (or under) the deck now, or on the sofa with me. He spent most of today outside and seemed to enjoy himself. I put a harness on Randolph for a few minutes. He promptly marched over to the food dish and ate. Didn't seem particularly bothered by the harness at all. After about five minutes, I took it off and gave him treats. Czarny heard the treats jar and came running. He managed to eat his treats before Randolph noticed he was there. I have to wonder if Randolph's previous people put him on a harness. We'll add a bit more time each day until we're sure he's fine with it. Then after he recovers from being neutered, we'll start going outside with him. Leoghaire and her two-year-old came by yesterday. We haven't seen them today yet. One of the hummingbirds is sitting on the wire holding the feeder. Territorial little buggers... Czarny's now under the bedcovers, and Randolph is sitting in the dining area window. Suppertime. Later, y'all.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Randolph slowly crept up the side of Czarny's tower, reached up, and diddled Czarny's butt. He screamed bloody murder and the chase was on. I'm not sure if Randolph is trying to play or intimidate, but Czarny is not having it. Early this morning, Czarny noticed Randolph sleeping (or staring) less than a foot away. He snarled, struck out, and managed to claw me rather thoroughly. Today, Czarny's outside, under the RV, where neither the birds nor Randolph can bother him. Poor guy. So we scheduled Randolph for neutering next Wednesday morning, in hopes that he'll calm down and stop bugging Czarny. Meanwhile, a movement in the corner of my eye this morning revealed a large gray squirrel trying to get a drink out of the swimming pool. First squirrel we've had that appears to be taking up residence on our property. WLToo is not happy, since that means it will get into the garden. This will be interesting to watch: squirrel vs human. Barn swallows have taken up residence on the south porch, too. It gets awfully hot in that nest, which is why it's not been used the last few years. Hope the hatchlings survive the summer heat. Leoghaire came by yesterday. Had a big grass belly, looked like she was still pregnant. I do miss the does' movements around the property... It's pretty hot, so I'll go get Czarny. Later, y'all.

I gave up on all NFL games when they stopped showing high school and university marching bands at halftime. Haven't missed watching them at all.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Tall Friend is back in the hospital, in ICU. Short Friend is not allowed to visit, and they are not being communicative, so she's about to head back to the warpath. They will regret it... Czarny and Randolph sniffed noses right in front of me this afternoon. Czarny strolled away, and when Randolph tried to continue with a butt sniff, he dashed back to his tower. Randolph loves to play, but he has very little stamina. Don't know if that's because he just took his last dose of medication today, or being a stray for over a month (or longer), or both. But I expect he'll improve nicely, now that he's living with us. Well, it's nice outside, so time to swim. Later, y'all.

RE: Parasite control issues help

Based on veterinarian and brother (also a vet) recommendations, we use Advantage Multi. It protects against heartworm, fleas, sarcoptic mange, intestinal parasites and ear mites. In some animals, they feel a little punky after application. We apply it at night, so they can sleep it off.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Short Friend came over for Sunday lunch and WLToo's early birthday cake. Said Tall Friend's UTI medication isn't working too well, so he needed to stay home. We chowed down on stuffed tomatoes, peaches and cottage cheese in raspberry Jello salad, green bean salad in balsamic vinegarette, and loaded mashed cauliflower before diving into the birthday cake: Keto Texas Sheet Cake with ice cream and whipped cream. Sounds heavy, right? It was not. Four hours later and I'm feeling a bit hungry. Randolph was more than happy to have SF rub him over thoroughly. Then Czarny demanded she escort him outside, where he re-inspected her vehicle, then headed to the RV. The hummingbirds, meanwhile, announced loudly that the feeder I filled up yesterday was empty already and why wasn't it filled right now?! The barn swallow babies are big enough to see all three of them. Still probably three weeks or more from flying. As WToo said, they don't have their game faces on yet. Leoghaire came up yesterday by herself. I fed her the last of the carrots. She looks okay, but I think we do need to water something so she'll have fresh greens to eat. All these clouds and just barely a drop of rain. You'd think it was summertime around here or something. Well, there's some Jello calling me. Later, y'all.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Texas Wildlife sent a guy to take samples from the corpse. WLToo had mentioned seeing an adult doe looking bad in the same way, so they'll be testing for Chronic Wasting Disease and several others. Meanwhile, the vultures have almost cleared things away. Just enough left for any four-footed predators to come by and haul it away. Randolph is a nag. He prowled from door to window to door, etc. howling. He really, really wants outside. Not happening. He's getting medication. Then he'll be stuck inside while he heals from being neutered. Then he'll start getting a halter. Only then will we consider letting him outside. Like Rudy and Bobbi Socks, he's braver than smart. Not taking a chance on him going missing, too. Czarny needs an escort to go outside these days. I walked with him from the house to the RV, where he ducked underneath. I think he'll be quite relieved when the barn swallow babies fledge and become independent... It's too pretty to be inside. There's a swimming pool calling me. Later, y'all.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Good news: Tall Friend has a UTI, which in elderly people can cause very weird symptoms. WLToo will go sit with him tomorrow so Short Friend can have some time to herself. Here's a photo of Randolph Scatt: I moved Czarny's tower next to my recliner. He's asleep on the top, after being outside all day. We'll see in a little bit if he's still outraged that Randolph is here. WLToo opened the spare bedroom door, Randolph looked up, said "Mrrr," and went right back to sleep. Looks like we'll have a peaceful dinner... The fawn died. WLToo notified the game warden, in case they want to take the brain for testing. Then he dragged it away from the RV and down into the meadow. If the warden doesn't get here toot sweet, there won't be anything left to test. Our black-headed vultures are very, very efficient. We almost never smell dead stuff. Wow. A squirrel just toddled across the north porch. Squirrels don't normally hang out on our property. Big, fat one, more black than gray. It's dinnertime. Later, y'all.
