WARNING!!! LONG POST COMING!! WOOOOHOOO!! I got to bring my sick Cat home Wed/evening on the 3rd, that was the day that we were getting sleet really really bad here; The wind was just blowing very hard and that blasted sleet was stinging me in my face as I hurried to do my first of the month errands and bills, Got paid and of course my mailman brings mine late of an afternoon so by the time he came the sleet was in full force outside! YEAH RAH!! So anyway I take off, hurry to get to everything before they close up, rush out to the Vet clinic, pick up my cat and her two meds she has to take daily speaking of which I've not done that yet today, gotta force a pill down her throat, now that is fun to do with her...( not really) but anyway I was told to keep her separated from my other cat here Screamer, as Minx is very sick and contagious..sure Doc...I'll try but Minx is the type of cat that when she is sick and is supposed to be locked up in a room from me and her baby, well she becomes a little bit "physco" (sp)?? crazy in another words... so I bring her here into my computer room get her food and litter box all set up well I did that before I left to go get her, now this room is small my computer fills it really well, my printer and my scanner are in here a very small tv on a small stand, my oxygen concentrator machine as it is LOUD and I can't stand it anywhere but in this room, my big tank of Liquid oxygen sits in here ( looks like a small space shuttle) LOL! and my Christmas tree box and there is a closet in here, my coat rack and this room is FULL...LOL! [i][/i][u][/u]So anyway I get minx in here and shut the door and she is kinda freaking out, and Screamer is outside in the rest of the house freaked out with the arrival of her Mother being here, Screamer is my baby, she is MOMMA'S GIRL...and she does NOT like to share me with anyone, human or animal trust me; LOL! So she stalks off all pissed at me, you know how cats get ...(G)!! So the next two hours or so I spend in here with Minx to calm her down and hopefully get her settled in to where she will sleep most of the night..HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAA silly me!! I leave after I shut down my computer for the night and had planned on watching some tv and then going to bed, well not 15 minutes later after Minx had spent that time in here scratching at the closed door, and in here 'HOWLING" as best she could being sick,(it was pathetic sounding) she then does what she has done in the past well If I am going to ignore her and leave her in a locked up room, she's gonna destroy something to get me to come in here so she did... She jumped up on my scanner to reach the windows in here with my curtains and literally knocked down the whole curtain rod and curtains to the floor which of course all crash landed and made such a hideous sound in here all I could think was get up, and get in here fast as I can so she doesn't tear up my little tv or something on my computer...GGRRROOWWWWLLL!! I was not happy when I entered this room not happy at all so the two cats are together and I pray Screamer does not get this sh!t minx has I can't afford the huge vet bill I have now 4 days plus all the meds she's had= $166.00 ++ I have to take her back in two weeks, now I have to get her a city license while she is here staying with me in town and when she gets better a rabies shot, then the license they won't issue a tag until she gets her rabies shot for the year..OH MY GGGAAWWWDDD!!!! I'm gonna have to sell a kidney or something to pay for this...OUUUHCCCCHHHH!!!!I love my animals but good grief!!! Momma does NOT have that kind of money they are letting me make payments but still...GOOD GRIEF!! SO MINX ( miss destructive) better get well and not infect my Screamer and behave herself for the winter!!I'm going to end this now cause mylot or my computer or something is acting so weird here I'm afraid I might lose this novel...so that's my story of minx coming home! GGEEZZ!!!!!

I read this in total amazement and also familiarity. why is it familiar? because she obviously share the same kind of life. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Things like this have happened to me on a regular basis all of my life. No kidding! The one that readily comes to mind is when I was told that there was a fire at the pig pen. My husband was not there. So there I am giving directions and told the tractor driver to take the hose up the hill to the pig pen. Now the hose was attached to an outlet on one side of the house. I went to undo the hose from the outlet but the tractor driver decided to zoom off. To cut a very long and tragic story short , it ended up with the hose being whip lashed around my feet and I am taking quick little steps to catch up the the tractor driver who has the other end of the hose. As I passed the front of the house I bellowed for the helper who almost through the baby in the play pen on the patio and took after the tractor driver to stop him. Are you feeling better? some of us do things with all the best intention in the world but it doesn't work out. No matter how hard we try. Did I say that my three sons were also on the patio and laughing so hard that they were unable to rescue their mother? Blessings!

OMFG! You poor thing! That was quite a story! It kind of was like a novel! I didn't want it to end! I love kitty stories! I know all about vet bills! I have spent so much money on cats in my life! Not on the two that I have now! Let me not jinks them! I hope that Minx will get better! What is wrong with her? And I hope Screamer won't get whatever it is. And I hope that the two of them are getting along and not driving poor mommy insane! My two boys are very destructive too! They just are very wild! The run around and jump and get into all kinds of things! They are 5 years old and full of energy. My girlfriend stopped by tonight and Star was going crazy! She had never seen him like that! He was just bouncing off the walls! Well, I hope that your weekend will be a bit quieter! I hear were getting some of that white stuff! It's only going to be maybe an inch! But, then they said they are watching a big storm by the end of next week! We will see! Well girlfriend, let us know the latest on the kittys! Hugs to you and Minx & Screamer!

Morning Opal, I'm moving around really slow here, if you read up above in response to what I just wrote up under Jerz's, you'll see how my night went...ARRGGHH!! I love my cats but good grief!! They both are trying my patience already "before" the coming of the full moon, they know I don't deal well when its a full moon week but they do what they can to try my nerves...can't wait to see whats in store for me when I get to the farm, darn dogs will probably be gone for hours again out in the fields eating on deer carcass...BLEH!!! I love my animals but Momma is dealing with a lot of pain here still from my fall I get to go see my chiro again too THANK GOD!!! I like to sleep with my left arm up under my pillow you know? and boy does that ever hurt so its still not back "In" like It should be...stupid body!! Yeah I write quite a novel don't I?? That's why I've always wanted to do blogs and get paid for it too..LOL! After all my crazy life and pets can keep me in stories FOREVER!! Screamer kept messing with my Christmas tree too last night that was the first time I was really fearful of her knocking the whole massive thing down,as she was just in that frame of mind, BAD KITTY MODE!!! Her and Minx are getting along ok until its time to "share me" like when we all go to bed...OH BROTHER!!! tempers flare! it was to say the least entertaining for a few minutes then I had to push both of them off the bed..LOL! JUST GET DOWN!! I'm sure I'll be napping sometime today as it was a long long rough night, thanks to my darling Screamer....Bad sulky kitty!

I am glad that Minx is back home and I really do hope that Screamer don't get sick also. What was it the vet said was wrong? Minx sounds like she didn't want to be left alone but glad her payback was not any worse.

HI Tyc; My poor minx has pneumonia, with our ever changing screw Missouri weather somehow she got that nasty crap; I've never had a cat come down sick like this even when I had a bunch of them on the farm growing up you know? Its just weird but obviously it happens more than we realize; Yeah I got my curtain rod hammered back into place so I could rehang my curtains I washed them while I Had them down putting it all back up was painful with my shoulder being wrenched yesterday doing this sort of task is hard on me anyway via my neck but I made it and then laid down and took another long nap, I'm so pathetic...LOL!!

Another Arnold Schwartzenkitty? La Gata Destructora? Good lord - that cat would be taking a walk on the wild side of ME if that happened!! The basement awaits. I know you don't have one there, though.

Like MOther Like Daughter, she kept trying to "bury" Minx's dry food bowl every 30 minutes to an hour I kept hearing this "bang" bang" "bang" "bang" and I kept yelling SCREAMER....STOP $#@@!@#$%#@!! BANGING THAT DAMN $$##@@!!!@#$@@!@! DISH! I'M GONNA GET UP AND BEAT YOUR A$$$$$$$$$!!!!!!![i][/i][u][/u] AAARRGGGHHHH!!! [i][/i][u][/u] Needless to say I got precious little sleep last night!

When Chloe doesn't get her way, I sometimes hear the sound of tearing paper. I heard it the other day for the first time in a while. She's been holed up in Mom's closet (since I won't allow her under the blankets anymore). Don't know what her problem was, but she's torn the sh!t out of a large paper back that was holding all of Mom's nebulizer meds. There's brown paper confetti all over the place - idiot cat!!! I slid the door open and she went tearing out to the kitchen. It's not like she can't get out on her own. The doors just hang on a track - Dad never put the bottom guide on, so they can be pushed easily by her - that's how she gets in there.

Whoa, woman! What a story! I feel for you because I'm on Disability and I need to take Mija to the vet this week myself. I just wanted to give you a little tip on how to give cats pills. I finally wised up to crushing her pills up very fine and adding just a little bit of water to make a paste. Remember - only a drop of water per pill because you want the paste thick. Then I wipe it up with my finger and put it into her mouth. She fights a little bit, but, at least this way the whole pill is inside of her mouth. You can also crush it up and put it in her wet food. I hope this helps. Since figuring this trick out giving pills to her have been a breeze! Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija
