    I just don't understand people who would do this....

    I just don't understand people who would do this. Not only wasting money and resources, but someday, someone else might actually need those officers at another legitimate incident at the same time,...
  2. She was in that exact same position, tail...

    She was in that exact same position, tail included, well before the kitten bounced up. I do think that she is slowly softening, though. We're hoping so. The kittens are eating well and playing,...
  3. These pictures without identifying background...

    These pictures without identifying background details very strongly resemble said kittens. :) Note that horse antichew spray is being conscripted as a training tool regarding electrical cords and...

    The kittens are doing well, much more playful. Still having litter box issues, which we're trying to work on. This is where the example of an older cat would help. They are just so little. Six...

    I've read several places that he told him. This is from Steve Haskin, "The One and Only Bid."

    "When Delp arrived (in the afternoon), the Bid seemed perfectly sound, so Delp kept the incident...

    Luck definitely has a role. I still think that the most "deserving" TC miss since Affirmed was Spectacular Bid. Combination of safety pin and of the young jockey losing his cool worrying about the...
  7. Unfortunately, I'm not supposed to take pictures...

    Unfortunately, I'm not supposed to take pictures in the client's home on my camera or phone. The only time we are permitted to take pictures is on the client's phone/camera which pictures then stay...

    I wouldn't give up hope yet, but whatever turns out, she knew she was loved. It isn't your fault. You gave her a wonderful home at the barn.
  9. They are too little, CL agrees. My estimate: ...

    They are too little, CL agrees. My estimate: 5-6 weeks. Maybe 6 inches long, minus tails. They are plump, at least. They seem to be doing fairly well, though. Sleeping (a lot), eating, climbing...

    Well, they're not white. I'd call them buff/cream. Sort of like baby palominos.

    They are also small. VERY small. I'd question whether they're old enough, but the mama cat already left with...
  11. Vicarious Kittens! - Now Including Pictures

    Cat Lady, one of my home aide clients, has had two white kittens reserved while they got old enough to leave mama. She told me today that she needs me to go pick them up tomorrow.

    Okay, not my...

    To give them credit, I did have a message from an executive at Verizon on my answering machine at home this afternoon when I got back from aide shift. They are responding to the BBB complaint. I'll...

    Paper bill. Nothing else seems touched that I can tell.
  14. Bill for Cell Phone Account that I Didn't Order

    Much to my surprise, I received a bill from Verizon a few weeks ago thanking me for my new order and billing me for $117.

    I did not order this, did not receive a phone, and have never made any...

    Pet Guilt Trips over a Half Bowl

    My indoor cats are on Taste of the Wild, which has to be bought in the city. I'm in the city twice a week, Wednesday and Sunday. Outdoor cats get Special Kitty from Walmart and are expected to...

    Stepmother's father's beloved Chihuahua died some years ago, and he was heartbroken, especially as his wife, also recently died, had loved that dog. He wanted a new puppy, and the loops the rescues...

    I think it was just how it happened, the years those horses came along. Not any specific 1970s "factor" that hasn't been reproduced since, other than the fact that Secretariat, Seattle Slew, and...

    So did Count Fleet. His trainer thought the gap was "too long" between races for him. I'm pretty sure one or two of the other TC winners had a 4-skein instead of 3, as well.

    I feel for the race callers in weather/track like that. Everything must look like brown silks on a brown horse.

    Awesome. Had to push him right at the beginning because of the post position, but then settled and relaxed once he was clear. I like this horse's professionalism. Totally different from Derby...

    Mine at home - inside and outside - are 7 to 8. They play nicely and take turns sometimes. Sometimes they also get jealous, but for the most part, the day can fit around the felines well enough. ...

    I did ask about plans, but something else came up right then. Will follow up.

    Today, the dog was gone when I got there. He does roam and can be gone for hours, though always returns. By the...

    The nurse is extremely anxious around all dogs, which she freely admits. She was attacked once years ago by a dog. So it's not just this dog specifically that bothers her; it's that this dog cannot...

    But the client disagrees in principle with "confinement" of any kind. The dog doesn't even have a collar. She thinks closed doors without some at-will hatch are cruel. She once told me in all...

    Update from stepmother. :)

    She stuck to her guns in spite of the multiple asks because her answer wasn't his top choice. So she had her requested Mother's Day.
