I caught this one last week, of Peter on the bed, sleeping on his back, paws crossed banger style.

The flash of the camera didn't seem to bother him at all.

Having been a Woot member since May, 2005, today. during the April Fool’s Day woot-off,  I finally was able to score three bags of crap.  Not only that, I logged out, then logged in with my other user name (only three widgets per account per order) and snagged another three bags of crap during the next sell off of bags of crap.

The topic: Blood drops

----------------------------------------------

Brian tells me this morning that some cat pooped in his sink.  And that there were blood drops in his shower.  And in the kitchen sink, as well as some poop there (ew - bleach is my friend).

After he leaves for work, I see blood drops on the tile in the dining room.  Not the thick bright blood drops that come from an injury, but the lighter drops that indicate diluted blood. As in urinary tract infection.

And who might have this infection? This is the question.  I wonder if it might be Rachel, she’s been wanting in and out and in and out of the house the past 36 hours. Kirby?  I know he likes to pee on the kitchen counter.  Don’t know about the poop.  He also hits Brian’s shower as does Rachel.

I’ll medicate them both.  Just in case. And I’ll keep watching the rest of the clowder for cats who are squatting or spending more time than normal cleaning themselves.

The topic: Pancho figured out the cat door

----------------------------------------------

I have no idea when.  If I’d have known, I could have opened up the house.  He’s hanging out under the pool pump right now.

When I first saw him, he ran and tried to get over the fence.  Not a good sign.  Most of the other cats have run for the house the first time they were outside and wanted to run for cover.

The topic: New stuff

----------------------------------------------

My old Olympus C-740 Z is dying. The one I got before our vacation in 2003. The media card door won't stay shut. I taped it shut with packing tape (it's clear tape, so it doesn't look dorky). I can download my pics using the USB port. Then it lost all settings twice in one week. I'm not a happy camper.

I'd been looking at a new Canon EOS 40D SLR as an additional camera, but wanted something to replace the Olympus. Well, I did some research and found this, an Olympus SP-570 uz, that uses the same cards and batteries as my current camera. So, I ordered it.

I found it cheaper elsewhere, lots cheaper, then research about the sites selling it so much cheaper and decided to go with a company I trust.

I'll be holding off on the Canon, because I've got that Canon PowerShot Pro 1 and I still haven't learned how to use it. And I can't seeing spending more money on a fancy new camera when I haven't even taken the time to learn how to use my old one.

The topic: New rules for new cats

----------------------------------------------

New kitty can’t go out until he’s not afraid of us and will come up to us in the house before the cat door will be set so that he or she can go out.

Which means, for the next couple of weeks, I shall be playing the role of doorperson.

It wasn’t too bad, dripping water helped get him from under the pool pump, he already knew he couldn’t get out at the southwest corner (our backyard fence has been modified), so he ran to the northeast corner (the only reason I knew is all of the other cats were watching with great interest) and couldn’t get out, then Brian came out to help me (couldn’t help myself, I was yelling for him to come outside and help), then Pancho ran to the southeast corner, which is completely closed in (behind the workshop). Brian was a the side where Pancho ran in, I was in front of the pool pump, and Pancho ran to the northwest corner, where the garage door, the door with the cat door in it, the corner that leads to outfront, was wide open.

He ran inside and up into the rafters. Brian closed both doors to the house and I got the garage door.  Last night, Panch was back were I could touch him with my fingers and rolling around and munching on food.  This morning he was still up in the rafters.  But that cat door will stay set to in only (although Benny and Opie can still open it to get out) until he joins the household and doesn’t run from us.

Makes me wonder how long he’d been out on his own.

Remember my first overnight trip without Brian ever last month? 

Well, Brian put the suitcase on the bed and I started filling it up.  I was trying to be very, very neat and I think Marco decided that Disneyland sounded like so much fun, that he wanted to go.  And he found a spot for himself in the case.

Notice the ponchos?  My mom bought those for me years ago and this was the first year I took them.  Because we planned on hitting Grizzly River Rapids.  My Texan friend Tikky, took a cell pic of me in my poncho, in line at GRR.  We were all wearing these goofy bright pink heart head boppers with bright pink fuzzy things that remind me of My Little Pony’s tail.  That’s why my hood is so far above my face.

Last weekend, Bobby fought back and Charlie now keeps his distance from Charlie.  It’s about time someone put him in his place.

When Bart first came to live with us, the vet told him that he'd most likely not live past twelve years, because polydactyls often don't have long lives. Bart will be seventeen this year. Good job, Bartholomew.

The topic: Packing and other stuff

----------------------------------------------

I’ve got to say one of my mom’s friends is just the best.  It’s the lady who used to live next door to mom, then moved back to Colorado with her granddaughter and great-grandson because it was too expensive to live here in California.  Mom missed this woman so much.  Thelma was like a sister to mom.

Anyway mom told me on a fairly regular basis that she wanted Thelma’s daughter to have the Norman Rockwell plates that dad had collected.  I called Thelma to tell her this and then when I asked her, one of the things Thelma said she’d like of mom’s was mom’s stereo stuff.  She offered to pay for it and we set a price. She was going to get everything, the receiver dad got so long ago, a five disk CD player, the two cassettes cassette player, all of the cassette tapes and all of the CDs.  She said she’d be in town towards the end of March.  I called her on the 28th, she said they were getting ready for a wedding and she’d call me back.  Not having heard from her Sunday, I gave her another call. She apologized, they’d been really busy, and she was sorry to tell me that with all of the traveling she’d been doing, she couldn’t afford the stereo stuff.  I told that I wanted her have it since it meant so much to her (she and mom used to sit and listen to music).  We made arrangements for her to come get everything last Saturday, April 5th since I was busy last week with jury duty (a whole ‘nother entry). 

Well, she shows up with her daughter’s pick up and I was taking the stereo apart and Brian had gone to get boxes.  We talk a little (I’ve not spoken much with her before).  And this woman, this wonderful friend of my mother, looks around and says “where do you want to start?”  She started going through things on the glass case “do you want this?”  “will this go in Father Joe’s pile”?  (mom was adamant about people not coming through her house, she said she wanted everything Brian and I didn’t want to go to St Vincent De Paul).  The woman is a slave driver.  *grin*

We didn’t pack Sunday, but we’ve been working on it every day since and I’m absolutely amazed at the progress we’ve made.  The living room and dining room are done, the kitchen is done. The park manager brought us up pizza this afternoon and Thelma was packing and asked me “do you want this platter?” and Sue piped up “I’ll take it, there’s almost nothing at the club house anymore” (seems things have disappeared over the years).  So, Sue took the majority of the cookware down to the club house and that didn’t need to be packed at all. She’s also taking two of the chairs on the front porch and the five barstools in the house.  It was great timing.

Since the kitchen area was so small, I said that maybe Thelma could do the kitchen and I’d start going through things in the master bedroom (where mom did not sleep).  I got rid of a bunch of old clothes, like underwear, and started going through some of the paperwork and photographs she’d saved throughout the years.

I found the family bible.  I didn’t even know we had a family bible, but my baptism date was in it, my first holy communion, my confirmation date, all entered by mom.  I’ve wanted a bible for a long time, but never got one.  Now, I’ve got one.  It’s a Catholic bible and it’s red.

She still had the discharge papers from when dad died (he was discharged on a Friday, died Saturday night, the day before Mother’s Day, 1987).  She had the Mother’s Day card he would have given her.   She had all of the medical stuff from when she had cancer.

And I found her Naturalization Certificate.  You know, when she officially became a United States citizen.  One of the proudest moments of her life.  Her picture was on it and I started tearing up, because I know how important this was to her.  I took it out to show Thelma and she couldn’t read it and I took off my reading glasses and handed them to her.  She started to read it.  And I was reading along.  Then I noticed the date.  I looked at it and did the math in my head.  My mother became a citizen on February 20, 1958.

She died on February 20, 2008.  Fifty years exactly.  Just amazing.

Anyway, the kitchen is done and the little bedroom is mostly done (except for the stuff piled on the bed).  The armoire in the master bedroom is done, I have to do the drawers in the dresser, shouldn’t take too long and both bathrooms need to be done (and most of that stuff will be headed for the local landfill).  Then we have to go through the clothes in the closet and most likely, they’ll be boxed up and sent with the furniture.

I think we’ll give the towels and blankets to animal shelters (like Friends of Cats, shelters always need things like this).  Some of the stuff we’re keeping and some I’ll try to sell.  Like some big Avon mugs, things that someone might want to fill out a collection.  Same thing with some of the pictures on the walls. We’re going to keep one futon (since the mattresses are fairly inexpensive to replace - thinking of the cats ruining the previous furniture in the living room), the grandfather and grandmother clocks. A few kitchen appliances and a few other miscellaneous things. 

By the the end of the week, we should be close to calling Father Joe to come pick up this stuff.

Oh, and Thelma bought mom’s car!  She said “I put most of the miles on it, I can just pack it and take all of these things back to Colorado with me”. 

Mom really loved Thelma. She told us that she’d come over and visit mom and they’d have pajama parties.  Just lay on mom’s bed talking about their lives into the wee hours of the morning. Thelma watched over mom and would call me when she was concerned about mom.  Thelma was the sister that mom no longer had, a good friend, a best friend. 

Thelma and I have bonded this past week.  I’ve met some of her family.  One of her sons, Jeffrey, is in the California Highway Patrol and he’d go visit mom at Chase (the facility).  Mom loved it.  They’d go walking down the hallway, mom on his arm, he in his uniform and mom just ate it up, all of the looks from the other patients and employees.  She’d tell him “let’s cause a scandal!” 

I love hearing about my mom, what a great person she was, how deeply loved she was by so many people.  How very generous she was to so many others, with her money, with her time, with her being.

I miss her.  I miss her a lot.  But you know, if she was still here, I’d never have known how great she really was.  Because it was a part of herself she kept hidden from me.  She didn’t brag, she didn’t boast. 

Thelma mentioned something to me that I’ve never considered all of these years.  Something I don’t even think about.  When mom first came to the states, she was very ill and was in the hospital for quite some time.  Years, as a matter of fact.  My dad was at school in Alabama learning how to be an X-ray technician (he was in the Air Force).  And I was in foster care for the first three years of my life.  Time that’s very important in the bonding process between a mother and child. And we didn’t have that.

Anyway, I’m feeling a whole lot better and not so bitter anymore, not so guilt ridden and not so angry.  I’m feeling really good about the person my mom was.  I wish I’d known that woman, but it’s really kind of nice to be finding out now.  Her legacy to me.

Bleh. It’s not a pleasant thing, believe me.  It was liveable when Jackie was the only one, but we’ve got fights, we’ve got more territorial marking than ever and it’s not making us happy, we are not pleased.

But progress with Panch is so good that I called and made an appointment for next Tuesday. 

And then a few weeks after that, hopefully peace will reign again.

The topic: Coincidence?

----------------------------------------------

I posted this over on a forum this afternoon and I wanted to save it, so I’m posting it here.

Okay, so Thelma and I are at mom’s again. Kitchen finished, Thelma starts on the guest bathroom and I’m working (still) in the bedroom. It takes a long time when you’re going through lots of memories, ones you didn’t even know were there.

Before my mom went into the facility, before she had to go in, she gave me her jewelry for safekeeping (well, she gave it to me because she was afraid she’d die and other people would steal it before I found it). This made me uncomfortable, because denial is a lovely place to live. I brought it home. While she was at Chase (the facility), I cleaned it all up and had it nice for her for when she went home. But there were a couple of rings missing, rings she wore all of the time. I wondered where they might be and finally came up with the explanation that she’d lost so much weight that they’d fallen off and she didn’t know where they were.

She had told Brian and me on one of the days that he visited with me, that sometimes she put her rings on the top of lamps. We figured she just put them at the top, where the lampshade connect. Brian checked all of the lamps, but never found any rings.

Fast forward, mom’s gone.  Before Thelma was out here and cracking the whip to make me work, I’d go over to the manager’s office to pay the rent and talk with Sue about mom. She told me that one of the residents, one that mom really liked, wanted the lamps in the room where mom spent most of her time. She thought they were touch lamps (they did come on when touched, but I think it’s because of something attached to the cords, not the lamps themselves) and she asked if she could have them. Mom liked her, she had a pug, they both had husbands in the Shrine, she can have them. Something to remember mom by.

Well, I told Thelma and Thelma is being very protective of me and mom’s stuff and said “well, if you give this stuff to Father Joe, you’ll be able to write it off of your taxes”. She didn’t want me to give the lamps away. I’m not sure what to do at this point.  Do I give them to Betty or to Father Joe? It seems like such a small thing, but at this point, I’m confused.  Thelma seems to want to follow mom’s wishes to the letter and I’m trying to make things easier by getting rid of them before they have to be packed, making it easier on me.  I am, after all, basically a very lazy person.

Thelma brought breakfast this morning and we were sitting on the porch eating when the phone rang. I thought it was Thelma’s cell, since the phone service had been shut off. Thelma said “no, that’s not my phone”. It was mom’s phone. I went inside to answer and there was no one there. I checked caller ID, but since there’s no service, there’s no caller ID. A little while later, it rang again and Thelma answered this time and it was the local newspaper, wanting mom to resubscribe. Mom never was subscribed. Thelma is feeling a little unnerved by this time, she slept poorly last night because mom was in her dreams all night long.

Later, I was telling Thelma about mom’s rings. And since all drawers have been emptied by this point with no rings, we started looking for them. Even took the mattress off of the futon mom always sat on, pulled it out from the wall and found nothing. Couldn’t find them, and I went back to the “they’re lost” explanation.

Fast forward to this afternoon. Sue (the manager), comes up to the house, Betty in the cart. Betty wanted to thank me for all of the pug stuff I’d sent down to her. And while she’s there, we find out she’s got a brain tumor, the reason she was in the hospital for three days and they don’t want to do anything with it until it’s bigger.  Thelma and Betty compare notes about their brain tumors and treatment.

While Thelma and Betty talked inside, I told Sue about the phone ringing. We were out on the porch and Brian was eating his lunch.  She looked at me and asked for mom’s number. She called it with her cell. We got “this number has been disconnected and there is no new number.” Which other people have gotten. Why did the phone ring earlier?

Sue went back inside and takes Betty into the bedroom to see the other lamps mom has. No, Betty wants the lamps in the other room. Thelma and I had put them on the kitchen counter before we knew they were coming up and Sue said “let’s put them on the cart and we’ll take you home” talking to Betty.

Thelma had one and I had the other. I looked at the one in Thelma’s arms and saw something interesting. I looked at my lamp and notice a latch on what I thought was just a decorative part of the lamp. I open it up. There are some gold earrings, that mom always wore. I said “Thelma, there’s a latch on the lamp, open it and see if there’s anything in there”.

Guess what? Mom’s missing rings. Thelma said “I guess you’re mom was trying to tell me something.”

And I was glad I went with my original plan of giving Betty the lamps. Because if I hadn’t, I’d never have seen those rings again.

Thanks, mom, your rings are safe.

And Thelma looked to the heavens and said “okay, okay,  I hear you”.  *lol*

----------------------------------------------

Pancho was due to get neutered today and as we all know, the drill goes “no food or water after midnight”.  So, before we went to bed last night, we pulled up the food.  I got the feeders in the house and Brian did the garage.

Cats are nuts this morning, they want to eat. 

I went into the garage to open the door and Brian pulled up the dry food last night, but left all of the bowls that had dinner.  He thought it would all be gone by midnight.

It wasn’t.

Pancho is not getting neutered today.  We’ll try again tomorrow.

One of the things I hate about surgery for the cats, is pulling up the food at night.  Right now, we’ve got thirty-five cats who honestly believe they’re going to starve to death and they keep reminding me of this fact.  I can’t safely walk down the hallway, cats zigzag in front of me.

I will be at the vet’s office by eight, carrier in hand. And when I walk out the door here, Brian will be feeding pussycats. 

Because we don’t want them to starve to death, you know.

The topic: Not getting much done

----------------------------------------------

We haven’t done much at mom’s this week.   We took off last Friday, Saturday, we took Thelma to breakfast and then up to the property.  From there, we headed on over to Mt. Palomar Observatory, which Thelma had never seen in her years here in San Diego.

From there, we went to lunch at Lake Henshaw, then came home.  It was a long day for all of us, we picked her up around seven, got her home at four thirty. We had a great time, got some nice pictures.

Sunday, we went over to mom’s because the park manager said that someone would be there in the afternoon with a truck and he could take out mom’s sofa.  I called her when we got to mom’s.  Sue came up in the golf cart and said that the other owner wanted to see the sofa before agreeing that it could be placed in the recreation room.  She was supposed to call Monday, but didn’t. 

We decided that we’d take the futon in the living room and bring it home.  That sucker was heavy!  Anyway, did a minimal amount of packing, then came home.  Brian tried to find a spot for the grandmother clock and I vacuumed the floor where I wanted the futon.  I had to do a small amount of re-arranging furniture (easy when you’ve got six pieces of furniture).  I started dusting the stuff and Febrezed the heck out of the sofa (stale smell, as well as some cigarette smoke smell, which really wasn’t that bad since mom didn’t usually do anything in that part of her home). 

Not liking the feel of the fabric on my skin (which I can honestly say I feel about most furniture coverings), I found a quilt one of my Disney buds made for me a few years ago and it fit perfectly.

The cats love it.  *sigh*  I finally thought I had a place of my own.  This morning, when I was thinking I’d sit back and read the newspaper, there were four cats on it.  I didn’t move them.  And I haven’t read the paper yet.

And yesterday, Thelma had brain surgery.  I went down to the hospital and waited in the waiting room for family and friends, I got there around one, not sure when I’d be able to see her.  Her daughter showed up around three.  She’d been there since five or so.  Waiting in a different room, making phone calls or just waiting in her car.  I should have taken her cell number and called her.

Anyway, Thelma finally woke up around four and she was taken to ICU and we went down to see her.  She looked pretty darned good for just having brain surgery.  She was told she’ll most likely have swelling and discoloration around her eyes.  Yep, black eyes.

I left about five (which makes it good that Pancho didn’t go in for neutering yesterday).  She was supposed to be released this morning, she should be home by now.

And today, I’m resting.  Hopefully, I’ll be back at mom’s tomorrow.  And since I’ve not heard from Sue, the manager, I’ll just give the sofa to Father Joe.

The topic: Rat bastards

----------------------------------------------

Who’s a rat bastard?  Free credit report dot com, that’s who.

This morning, I’m checking the online credit statements for new charges. There’s one from that credit report company for $11.95.  I know I didn’t sign up for it.  I call them. Seems Brian signed up for it.  Ohhhh-kay.  “You can’t cancel it, the person who signed up for it has to cancel.”  Ohhhh-kay.

Brian’s not home.  I call him.  “Did you sign up for this?”  Yes. (I think to myself ‘why?’)  I say “did you know we already get a monthly credit report?”  Nope, he didn’t know.  I told him there was a charge on the credit card statement.  Here’s the kicker. 

“I never gave them a credit card number!”

I believe him. Because I know him. He would not have signed up for a service like this.  He was just curious at the moment and the minute they’d have asked him for a number, he’d have said “gee, I didn’t realize there’d be a charge for a free report, never mind, I don’t want it”.  So, how did they get the number?  I dunno.  But I’m not happy about it in the least.

So, when he came home he did call, he did cancel, he did get a cancellation confirmation number. And I’ll check the CC statement and if we’re not credited that money, I’ll put in a dispute.

He thinks since they have his social security number (shudder), they were able to pull up all sorts of information about him and one of the things was a list of credit cards and they must have just arbitrarily picked one to start billing.

Rat bastards.  They should be put out of business, is what I think.  Note to self: find a website where I can file an official complaint against them.

Guess who this is?  Who’s tummy might you be viewing right now?  Hmm?

Yes! That’s it!  Benny, Benny, Buttcat!

The topic: The tally

----------------------------------------------

I rarely fill in the “tally” anymore.  I don’t know why, maybe because I haven’t been posting as much. 

A couple of Mondays ago, we found some dimes, nickels, a quarter and pennies.  The total for the day was .75.  A good haul.  Then on that Friday, we found three quarters.  Nice. 

Last Monday, I found a dollar bill, all folded up in the gutter.  Dollar bills are nice. Then, the rest of the week we found a couple of pennies, and yesterday we found a penny.

We were so flush, then the money tree just dried up.  Just goes to show ya how quickly the economy can tank.  Everything is worth picking up, leaving nothing for us, the scavangers.

Some kitty keeps getting up where the camera is and moving it.

Kitty needs a spankin’.
