Hey, remember me?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hello all! We just moved (finally!), we bought a house in Longmont, CO the end of August. Once again, we have Broadband :whee!: so I can actually spend some time online!

Had two kitty crises this summer: Dodger got bitten really badly on one hind leg and the tendon was severed. He abscessed badly and needed it to be drained twice by the vet. Well, after a month of dressing changes, you would not even know he'd been injured. We'd been told to expect he'd be lame in that leg, but he runs, jumps and climbs with it just like normal. He is a very, very lucky guy.

Khepera had a urinary blockage and almost went into renal failure a few weeks ago. He spent a night at the emergency vet and was all-day in the non-emergency vet for 3 days. We thought he would need surgery, but after a weekend home with a catheter in last week, he was urinating fine and the vet thinks he's made a full recovery. Whew!

Aside from that, our kitties love the new 2000 sq ft house and have made themselve right at home.

Hi Sue! I've been thinking about you and wondering how you've been. I'm so glad to hear that you got the housing situation figured out, and are settled in your new home. I'm also very happy to hear that your two kitty crisis came out with positive endings.

Ulysses was in my prayers for a long time. My grandson's cat, Icy, never came home either I pray that they found sanctuary or are in a better place
Anyway..... it's great to see you in the forums again! Susan

The move went well, surprisingly. The only problem we had is Question freaked out and hid when we were loading cats into carriers, and would not come out. He did this when we were leaving PA, too. He just works himself into such a state of panic. We had to leave with all the others, bring them to the new place, and come back just for him. He was not happy and hid for the first 2 days here in the new house. He is fine now; in fact, his new favorite activity is to walk to the middle of the downstairs, to the place where the acoustics for echos is perfect, at 4 AM and yelling in his squeaky little meow "Eh eh OW!"

One very funny thing here is the upstairs is all Pergo laminate flooring. The cats, used to running on wood floors, can't get a grip with their claws. This becomes a problem when cornering. There was a loud noise (I think Tybalt had dropped something) last night and a dozen cats came charging out of the computer room at top speed. They hit the turn going into the living room and all slid into the wall like a bad NASCAR pile-up. Of course, they were all offended when I laughed...

That's hilarious! I just picture in my mind's ears and eyes all these kitties skittering sideways, and hearing about 15 fuzzy "whumps" as they hit the wall!

Welcome back I'm glad the move went well.

I'm also sorry that Ulysses never came back

Welcome back, Sue, and congratulations on the new house!

Hi Sue! I pop in and out occassionally these days too. SO GLAD to hear about the house. And I'm so, so, sorry about Ulysses.

Have you discovered "cat curls" yet? They're small plastic coils that act like milk jug rings only a lot better because they're longer and keep rolling.... Shelly's favorite place to play is in the kitchen, and it's whatever that stuff is on which they can't get a grip, and he apparently really enjoys just crashing into everything....
