I googled poodle rescue groups near me and a couple came up - in my area there is a good selection of poodles of various sizes and ages looking for a forever home.  So maybe google?

I’m that person that feeds all stray cats, dogs, and the occasional fox in my neighborhood. Think of the bright side in this: you’ll never have mice.  The pregnant kitty could benefit from some kitchen chow now and after she has her babies. Not meaning to put you out, but you could buy that instead of adult cat food, and cheap stuff works fine too. They don’t care if it comes from the pet store or the dollar store.  The mom-to-be would also benefit from an old towel or blanket you no longer need for her kittens. They’ll need someplace warm.  I’ve had about fifty cats thanks to a super fertile cat I had as a kid.  I had to do this many times.  

So I just found out the homemade laundry detergent I’ve been using is from a Duggar recipe.  I don’t know if they ripped it off someone else (though I wouldn’t be surprised) or if it’s their own idea.  I hate to give them any kind of credit or accolades, but this stuff is a beast.  It works as good as Tide and Persil at a fraction of the cost. Anf ot tskes the smell out of anything. I guess they’re good for something afterall.   

Oh thanks!  I didn't think of any of that. I was just taking towels in off of the line and realized that some are coming apart on the edges.  I can leave them outside near the "cat house"?   They seem to have burrowed under our huge shed/barn thing that my husband built (it's a DYI fail).  My daughter realized that some are living up in the rafters of the shed too.  They are not scared of people and are all super pretty too.   Next Walmart trip, I will get them some kitten chow.  Should I put out water too?  (Oh lord, look at me starting another project!).  They are probably drinking from a stream nearby.  I never know if it's good or bad to feed wild animals.  I put out carrots for some animal that looks like a groundhog but probably isn't. 

@SunnyBeBe  My neighbor takes in strays and is a HUGE animal advocate.  She has an ASPCA license plate.   I will ask her if there is any way these kitties can be spayed or neutered.  It's a pretty large group out there!   I didn't think of the ASPCA at all.  I like animals but I'm not  "animal person" and would never have thought of that on my own.  I don't think I've even mentioned it to anyone other than here...I  just realized there are a lot of cat parents here!   Thanks for the good idea. 

@lookeyloo  Oooh, I would love an adult poodle!  I'm going to google and see what dog is put in my path!  Never thought of rescue poodles.

 

Well, i learned a lot today!

On my mom's headstone, I used the word "cherish"   cherished mother, grandmother, sister, daughter type of thing.   I

t took me a year to do the engraving.  It had to be right. 

 

I love what you wrote!  I like Sew Sumi's suggestion of word order switch.

NYC is so expensive.  That is why I am way down here and drive ALL the way up there to work.  It can take me three hours in traffic or more.  I work a flexible schedule but still...there are days I must get there at 8am.

I'm sorry you are dealing with such poor repairs.

The local animal shelter where I live is asking people to be foster parents for kittens. I would love to do it, but I have no idea how Sassy would deal with a bunch of kittens in the house. I probably would get too attached to the kittens as soon as I took them home with me and would not be able to give them back to be adopted by other people.

I hope they know of someone who can help get them spayed and neutered.  If they aren't they continue to breed and multiple at an alarming rate. This can cause a lot of problems and they could end up getting captured and put down.   My cousin had a feral group in her neighborhood once and it was sad, because some of the kittens seemed physically and mentally disabled.  It may have been due to inbreeding with immediate siblings or malnutrition, but, something was not right with them.  If they can rescue the little kittens early enough and ensure they are tame, they may be adoptable.

What a depressing visit to the PC.  But we all signed on to be the place to come for funny or for sad.  You guys know how long we’ve been doing this, right??  It must seem so strange to anyone else that we’ve been connected for so long!!  I do love you guys so much, and I hope one day if I ever evaporate, someone notices and says “she was a mess!”   [is that a total southern thing?  For it to be a compliment if we say “she’s a mess”?  Not like “slob” or “train wreck”.  For us, to say someone is a mess is to say (affectionately) “she’s sweetly silly”.  My Mama:  SHE was a mess].  I miss Arwen.  She was such a mess!

and although is seems irreverent to offer a sendoff for Arwen at the same time, on furbabies:  I have a completely, absolutely useless furball of a cocker who’s a bit small for the breed, even tho they aren’t large dogs.  While I’ve been down, this dog has been my 24 hr a day unmovable rock star.  He is the BEST.  Doesn’t bring me water, doesn’t fetch the remote, but is ALWAYS stuck to me like glue.  The big dogs come and go and like to be outdoors a part of every day.  Not my buddy boy.  He is wherever I am.  Follows me in the bathroom.  Sleeps on my feet (foot) at night.  Licks my plate after dinner.  Worthless but priceless.

You can put out a little water when you feed them if mosquitoes are not an issue in your area (west nile and all that jazz).  I bet you uthose cats were abandoned since there’s no way you’d get near a feral cat. They’ll appreciate the towels you leave out, and the food too. And don’t be surprised if you completely fall in love with the kittens.  They are absolutely adorable.

So a friend of mine had a baby today. They're describing the labor like the Duggars. She went into Labor in the early hours of yesterday, but didn't go to hospital until late last night. @doodlebug said I think you should only count the hours of active labor.  It was like when Jessa had Spurgeon, because she claimed she was in labor the day before.  Still my friend was in active labor for over twelve hours and thankfully came through it better than the Duggar sisters despite being ten years older. 

@Churchhoney I was excited to see your post especially with so much saddness. I find the Duggars a nice break from the news and politics.  I understand your point of view and am glad you're taking a needed break, but it's nice to hear from you.

I can't get too close but they very much enjoy watching us.  A few just sit and stare at us for long periods of time.  Maybe they recognize my daughter who puts out food?  They don't run when they see us but they do change their location. 

They have been under my shed/barn monstrosity for about a year now.  I was worried about them in the snow but once spring came, they popped right out and I think they multiplied their posse. I'm next to hundreds of acres of preserved land so I think they have found a food source. I don't have any mice but the snakes are still lurking around (very scared of snakes). 

I find them all over the place. On my picnic table in the sun, super early in the morning.   

Pretty cats too.  A bunch of gray ones. A few black and white.  I agree...those cats started out as a pet and then multiplied. Never thought of that either.  I have no cat knowledge but the gray ones with the bluish eyes?  Aren't they usually pets? I have real pretty fat cats living here!

Google "cat birth control".  There is a group somewhere, maybe PA, that has a formula for a concoction to put in the feral's food that stops conception.  It is a real thing.

Back to the mothers gravestone - you DO have to pay attention that the  wording.  Once it’s set, you’re stuck forever.  Luckily, my mom had a lifelong habit of arguing with whoever said they loved her.  No matter who it was, they’d say “I love you Granny” and she would respond with either “love you more” or “love you most”.  

On daddys “side” of the stone, we engraved his name and birthday.  We (the kids) wanted to add “beloved Joe” [before he left the Amish, he’d grown up as Joe.  They have a tendency to nickname every one, and as a child he’d been Joe, Joley, Joe-Joe and Harv’s Joe].  Although we all agreed on some dirivetive of his childhood name as a nod to the Amish, Mama was having no part of it.  Without spelling it out, we all non-verbally agreed to add Joe on after her death.

so we did.  Over her vital info, we put in script “love you most” and over his, “beloved Joe”.   It was a good decision and I’ve never regretted it.  Do think long and hard before you commit.  It‘ll bug you to no end if you aren’t fully committed to what you say.

@galaxychaser, how about something like: Ever Remembered, Ever Missed, Ever Loved. Unless I can't count, it comes in at 39. Maybe play around with the placement of the first two. I think loved needs to be at the end. I know it can be hard to condense your feelings for a parent into a few words. Hugs and prayers to you.

True story:  When I was a resident back in the mid 80's, hospital volunteers passed out birth certificate forms for the new moms to fill out each morning.  I was making rounds one morning and a mom was puzzling over her form.  I asked her if she needed anything. 

New mom: "That volunteer didn't know how to spell my baby's name."

Me: "Don't YOU know how to spell your baby's name?"

New mom: blank stare

Me: "Ok, what's her name, I'll help you"

New mom: "Cheyenne" (very uncommon name at that time).

Me: "Like Wyoming?"  NM: blank stare

Me: "Like the Indian tribe?"  NM: another blank stare

Me:"OK, get your pencil. C-"

NM: "It starts with a C?"

Me: 'Yep. C-h-e-y-e-n-n-e"

NM: blank stare

I went back to the nurses' station where the Chief resident was doing some charting.  I told him, 'God help me, I just helped some lady name her kid Cheyenne.  She didn't know it started with a C, didn't know it was a town in Wyoming."  He replied, " Why didn't you do the kid a favor and tell her 'Cheyenne, M-a-r-y, Cheyenne?''

When I was in foster care back in the 90s, one of the other kids in the house had a sister named Shyann. I overheard the foster parents being privately bewildered by it, and even as a 10 year old I was like, "Shouldn't that be Cheyenne?"

Went to Disney this weekend for eldest's birthday. We are semi-local so we go often, but if we're staying overnight, I make it a point to cut the cord and only use my phone for the Disney app, my camera function or texting hubby to figure out where he is, why he's still talking about Star Wars and where we can meet up. I ditch social media because it's Disney and I need a happy bubble. 

So I'm uploading pictures and what do I see on my facebook feed? The most ignorant political based commentary that I ever did see. And I know we can't talk politics here so I'm not even going to mention what it said, but oh my word, my Disney bubble has popped and I want to go back! 

6 more days until we drive over for the day pending Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Isaac and Hurricane Helene---Lord giveth me strength to get through 5 days without screaming at people!

I had a similar experience. On a quiet day in L&D,I was helping out on the post-partum unit by handing out the birth certificate forms. An 18 yr old mother told me she liked the name Carolina. I agreed that it was a pretty name,  but then she added that she might name the baby after the father. When I asked his name she said Rocky, and she would call the baby Rockalina.

I ran to the nurses station for reinforcements and several of us went back to her room to try to convince her to name the baby any name other than Rockalina. She said she’d talk it over with her boyfriend when he came to visit.

Rockalina is about 20 yrs. old now.( I hope she doesn’t read this forum).

Yes, they all seem to be a pack of feral cats.  I'm in NJ, far down in a more rural area.  There are huge woods here and they seem to have taken shelter in our DIY shed/barn thing.   They never cry or fight.  They are all fat and pleasant. We fed them during the snow and my daughter would check on them...apparently they were snuggled tight in our barn/shed monstrosity.  

I didn't really realize there were so many of them until the summer when they all appeared!  Now I'm a bit more concerned that they are obviously mating.  They started at about 3 and I think there about 8 to 10.  One black one likes to sleep on my step but scatters when I try to get near him.  The gray ones lounge around most of the day and watch us.  

I have an entertaining backyard, I guess?  

 

Does anyone know how cats and snakes get along.?   I AM PETRIFIED OF SNAKES, so please don't tell me anything too graphic.  I'm worried the snakes might get into the barn and harm the cats.  I'm hoping that the feral cats are bad ass and will kill the snakes.  Please tell me that is true!

We have a boy cat, a rescue that we got when he was 3 months old.  He's a tuxedo kitty with long canines so of course he's named Dracula Vladimir.  He has a thing about hunting and has brought us numerous lizards and small snakes - luckily they have all been non-venemous.  Years ago we did have a male cat, also a tuxedo that tried to capture a copperhead snake.  Luckily at that time I worked for a vet and he survived just fine.  It's only when Dracula brings in his scaly presents and let them loose in the house that we have an issue.  Of course this is also the cat that brought in a live bat and let it loose as well.

Unrelated to above topics, but wanted to vent. In a nutshell - listed house for sale, I had some good pics of house which I gave to realtor  and he posted. Realtor also shared listing on Facebook. A woman I do not know and who has no intention of buying house commented "how could you possibly prepare a meal in that kitchen?" I was livid. Realtor did come and took some different views of kitchen.. It isn't enough that people can come into your home and leave nasty feedback, but at least those comments are only seen by seller. We had planned to sell home earlier in year, but my husband had heart attack a few weeks ago. It has been 20 years since we sold a home and things sure have changed.

Wow, some of these posts are so relatable it's scary.

Dragon-our male tuxedo has long canines as well.  He has little vampire teeth that show.  He's the one that just showed up outside and proceeded to walk in the house and lay on the couch. 

And on the name front, I know a Shyanne.  Strangely enough, her brother is Dominick.  

I was hoping to jump in to see if there was any news about Arwen.  I hadn't been posting too long before she took her break, but I enjoyed her posts.  My thoughts are with her and her family.

Oh God--that means there are 2 of them! The girl I knew of had 3 brothers. Their names, interestingly enough, were William, Jefferson, and Clinton. (It was Arkansas in the 90s.) I always notice when siblings' names seem mismatched, so I still wonder what possessed the parents to name their daughter that spelling when their boys had relatively common first names.

This is a reminder that the Politics Policy is still in effect.

I understand with recent current events there may be a desire to discuss political social media posts of those in the Duggar realm- this is not the place for those discussions. If you believe someone has violated forum rules, report them, do not respond or engage.

Political discussion is not allowed in this forum- this includes Small Talk topics. Please stay in the spirit of the policy- I have noticed a tendency for some to follow the letter but not the spirit.
