I had to put down one of my cats today, RIP Fat Cat

I adopted her and her sister about 12 years ago, she’s always been a sweet cat with an enormous purr ability. At her most vibrant, she was a big solid cat, weighing around 30 pounds, but about a year ago she started to slowly lose weight, then about 4 months ago she started to lose about 5 pounds a month, then finally just stopped eating a couple days ago. This wasn’t a sudden thing, so I was prepared for it more than I was for previous pets, but it’s still never a fun day.

One of my cats, Fat cat, is no longer a fat cat, but has lost 2/3 of her weight in the last 6 months and has had uncontrolable diahhrea for two or three months of that time. We didn’t really catch it because we were using a cat genie, but she started getting really particular about how clean the litter bin was and having incidences outside of the confines of the automated pooper scooper.  We’ve taken her to the vet about 3 or 4 times now and she continues to lose weight and become more and more lethargic.  She’s now to...


I voted for the 2020 Election!

I have officially voted in the 2020 General Election.  I’ve always voted by mail, but this year when the ballot and it’s return envelope were delivered, it was raining pretty hard.  My mail box is slightly angled the wrong way, so of course the one piece of mail that day that I needed to keep dry was soaked! By the time I was able to open the slip and get everything out the return envelope was already sealed from the moisture, and my attempts to gently open it were much more destructive than I had hoped. I ended up going down...

Our final foster cat has been adopted! It’s bitter sweet, because today we also sent off our three perma-kitties to my in-laws for a couple weeks so we can have some cat-free time for the next couple weeks. I do have concerns with FatCat, as she’s still not feeling 100%, but at least she’s going to be people that care about her. In completely different news, I got my annual flu shot on Friday, and my arm is still smarting from the injection. That first 24 hours was not fun for my poor bicep.


I hate that I now have a preference for how carpet cleaners work

I hate that I know how this one works, I hate how it works, I hate having to take it apart every 3 months to sand down some bullshit piece of metal that’s rusting away, I hate that they put a iron POS in there instead of plastic, and I hate that it’s driven not by belts or gears, but by the power of air itself.  You read that correctly, it’s not connected directly to the motor, nope, the brushes that are supposed to power clean the floor go from the floor to a gear that’s being pushed by a...

I turned 40 last Thursday, I had a steak and potatoes meal, expertly cooked by my dear wife. It was followed by apple pie with ice cream. One of my cats continues to be sick and I’m not really sure what more I can do for her, she’s lost so much weight since we stopped leaving dog food down a year ago after my last dog died. I’m hoping she’ll take a better turn soon. I continue to be frustrated beyond belief by companies like Facebook and Google that provide services but no customer support at all. I’m dumping Facebook,...
