    Needing ideas for larger/smarter cats that are not challenged by the "typical toys"

    I second the milk rings! Nova loves hers; we have 1-2 dozen... mostly under the stove and refrigerator! Da Bird. It's a wand toy that you hold and wave around, but it's different from the other wand toys that are out there! The feathers kind of flutter (like a real bird ?). Squishy balls they...

    Things I'm thankful for

    I'm thankful for my good health, food to eat, a clean warm place to sleep, clothes to wear, my amazing husband, my cats, having a job, having a car, my parents, my wonderful friends, the relatively good health of my loved ones, having access to an education, and health insurance. I have a good...

    I'm a bit scared this evening...

    I hope you do not have ketoacidosis, and I hope you feel better soon.

    Feedback please?

    The human eye is most sensitive to about 550 nm wavelength light... that would be a yellowish green. I think your illuminated figures would be more eye catching if there were a hint of green in them. Something like the halo around the words "Safe-Lite".

    It's been 13 days and some hours since surgery, and I had my follow up appointment today. The doctor says my progress is slow. I'm at the point in my recovery that most people would be at somewhere between days 7 and 9. The silver lining is that I've lost 6 pounds, and my fitness goal when I...

    I'm embarrassed to say... I've heard of probiotics, but I don't know how to procure them. Are there probiotics in yogurt I can get at a regular supermarket, or is it a specialty food that I have to search for? I was just eating regular plain yogurt. My digestion is back to normal now, but it's...

    I feel almost normal again, except for a few things. 1. If I don't drink enough water, I feel a general sense of malaise. I am drinking about 11 glasses of water, gatorade, and/or juice each day. I like water best. 2. I'm still unable to speak. If I force myself to, I can squeak out a few...

    I am feeling better and better. The thrush is pretty much gone after only two days of medicine. Most of the pain is gone too. Once in a while, my throat will spasm, which is kind of weird. The scab over my wounds looks like it's disintegrating ever so slowly. I think the pain flares up after I...

    Thank you all for the continuing encouragement! Posting here has been a good way to get my feelings out, since I still can't speak. I had a minor setback in recovery- oral thrush. The antibiotics did their job too well, and now there's an overgrowth of yeast in my mouth. (Yuck!) I visited the...

    You all are so right. I'm even having dreams about food! I need to get something nutritious in there even if it hurts. I did have a cream of chicken soup, and it was good, but it didn't have as many Calories as I would have hoped. Yesterday, I tried to have a smoothie made with soy milk and I...

    What does your username mean?

    Nova is our first cat. When hubby and I first moved in together, he said we could have just one. Now we have 4 indoors-only and 3-4 feral outdoors.

    Is it OK if I continue to post my progress here? Yesterday I made it to 1030 Calories of liquids. The pain felt like it was subsiding for about half the day, but I was overly optimistic. I had trouble sleeping last night due to pain. Maybe it's too much info, but I've been menstruating since...

    My next pain medicine dose is in an hour, so this is as coherent as I'm going to get! I didn't realize that I mentioned my fear of bleeding over and over and over in this thread. I've been able to get down a lot of water, broth, gatorade, and apple juice. No food really. The pain medicine they...
