My doctor scheduled me for a colonoscopy a couple of years ago. I read the preparation instructions and promptly canceled the appointment. When I next spoke to him about it I told him he could talk to me about again when I turn 50 and not a single day before that.

I really wasn't sure how all of this would go over with their taste buds. I started and continue adding these items to their ummies for dietary reasons so, I'm glad they've taken to it like they have. They also all get a vitamin E supplement at night after dinner. :=D

My kids get canned pumpkin mixed with their kibble once a month, or every week during the allergy season. Dante will bite himself even with medication. He can get furballs and let us say... irregular. And of course whatever brother gets, sister wants too. They love it.

ETA what kind of VE do you use? I had my boy on 3V caps as a pup, but as he got older he refused to eat them. No kidding, I would put it in his kibble and he would carefully remove it and leave it next to his bowl on the placemat. They I started putting it in food to give him, and he would make himself cough it up. Cutting open the get caps and mixing it in the food led to hunger strikes. I buckled after 36 hours. So it just became more trouble than it was worth for a twice a day vitamin. I found a Science Diet formula with VE and fish oils that he likes but it is more expensive.

There is a car illegally parked in front of our house's driveway. :rage:

Right now I'm only slightly annoyed, but I'm going to be very pissed if it doesn't move by the time I have to leave to donate blood (a 20 min. drive away). That will be thirty minutes from now.

Default Re: What's up with you?

Earlier this week, one of our cats got out and we thought we'd lost him. He was spooked by a large construction truck, ran off, but then returned and we found him sitting under my housemate's truck.

Well, both cats got out this time by knocking out a screen window. I only noticed because I was on the couch, listening to some music and reading, and I saw a Siamese cat looking at me on the wrong side of the glass door. I got up and moved to the door instantly, which luckily spooked him in the right direction: back through the window and into the house. Then I realized I had no idea where the other cat was.

He turned out to be in the backyard and wasn't so easy to coax back in. Eventually I had to corner him by the gate and grab him. Fortunately, he's grown too fat to be able to leap gracefully over fences.

They obviously feel as if this is their home, otherwise they wouldn't stick so close when they get out. I think they only do this because they like to see us frazzled and panicked. :hyperventilate:

See my thread in lifestyle. Basically, I am really badly suited to living with dogs, and this was my roomie's dog, and it has been a giant clusterfuck. Roomie got a great opportunity to get a place with another dog for dog to play with, and with people who get along with dogs, and many other awesomeness.

Now I can, say, watch television downstairs, without being constantly nervous that Dog Will Happen. Cats that have been separated by The Place The Dog Is will finally do the thing where they carefully snub each other from adjacent rooms for a week or three and become friends. Life is good.

I'm glad that you got them both back inside! When our cat gets out and hides in the holly bushes, we dump a cup of water on her and she runs back inside. Of course, then we have a wet cat in our house.
