Jcatbird Jcatbird Wishing you the winning Powerball ticket and lots and lots of hugs to go with it. :grouphug:

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Carleton just had the I-131 treatment last month and he goes for his post T-4 test tomorrow. Prior to that he was on Methimazole until we could save up for the radioactive iodine treatment. If there's anything you would like to know or ask please feel free to pm me. I would be more than glad to share since it was a very positive experience. (I'd be more than glad to drive you to Wilmington if I lived closer.)
Just sending up *PRAYER* and wishing/thinking the BEST for sweet handsome Carleton! :redheartpump: 👑 :redtabby::redheartpump::cheerleader::goldstar:

Jcatbird Jcatbird I hope everything works out okay. You have been through a lot lately and could use a break. Hang in there. :heartshape:

neely neely I hope all goes well for Carlton tomorrow with the T4 test. I had a cat with a Thyroid issue and thankfully with the right vet care, she nearly lived to 20 years old. I was so grateful for all the vet done for her. 🙂

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 Thanks for sharing that. It was very moving. ❤❤❤

Dear friends, thank you for all the kind thoughts and beautiful posts! I do read them all. Always. Just a bit short on time and rest so took time to rest. Lots to be accomplished but I still check in whenever possible. So glad those old photos of younger kitties were enjoyed. Cheetah really is like a cat from those ads! I hadn’t thought of that before! Lol Dolly has that seeet apple head. Lol Stunning FLW building! Green elephant? Lol Peanuts magnets! Life can’t always be a front loader!:lol: Good one! Mackie Benevolent despot? Yes.:lol: We will get through the shortages. We are all tough and we get going when it is required.:yess:
I won’t burn myself out and since I have an unhappy toe, Banjo drew a smile on it. Lol
When it rains it pours! Yes it does and I just took advantage of the rain and washed the laundry in it. ;) Lol It does rain problems sometimes but having support here makes all the difference.:heartshape:
Hek! Stay well sweet one. Use the power of catitude! Trying to think of a ride for you. Give us some time on that.
Carleton, think all healed! Floof power! I know of someone who got the treatment for their kitty and it was awesome! Complete success.

Found the credit card! It was in the Banjo treasure box. She is soooo thoughtful. She paid for everything and did retrieve my card from where “Whistle” supposedly stashed it in the old washing machine before it got hauled off. Thank you Banjo! Glad she remembered. Lol

Using rice in sock trick! Been using that since you first told us about it tarasgrl! Love that!

N NY cat man All well there?
BellaGooch BellaGooch All well there?
Maria Bayote Maria Bayote How are you?
Buffster7 Buffster7 Been wondering about you and kitties. Okay there?
M movinintime I have Slyvie in my prayers along with you both.

As for the Instagram post….. instead of people faulting those who need help for the animals, use the energy to help them! It reminds me of a poem about a kind word. It is “ Drop a Pebble in the Water” by James W. Foley. So very true! It is worth looking up and reading and can be found on poetry nook. Not sure if I can put a link here or not but it is found on YouTube.

It helps if a cat purr esses the clothes.

Fewer wrinkles, more fur.

Maybe we better test you out.

Banjo! My hand is over here! Are you spin cycle drunk? I think you rode more than three spin cycles. You know the washer is not an amusement park ride.

All is well here, with but one exception. Bashful is still in mourning for her departed best buddy, Burdock. She is ever so slowly coming out of her shell, but she still will from time to time go around searching for him, making a plaintive little kitten meow. As I said, she is improving from where she was in October, and we give her as much cuddling as she will tolerate, but still..............

We will get through the shortages.
I snatched up a 24 pack case of canned food from Walmart online. I have to be quick or poof it's gone! Ridiculous. :headshake:

We are all tough and we get going when it is required.:yess:
Sometimes we need help to get going though. 🙌🤝🙏💰

since I have an unhappy toe, Banjo drew a smile on it.
Ha! Wish Banjo could draw smiles on my entire life. :lol:

Trying to think of a ride for you. Give us some time on that.
Problem Solver at work again. Rescuer Extraordinaire. :hugs:

retrieve my card from where “Whistle” supposedly stashed it in the old washing machine before it got hauled off.
Be careful with that credit card Banjo! We will need it if I ever come visit. Late night online ordering & maybe a road trip. :devilish:

Fewer wrinkles, more fur.
Ummm...I'm not sure that is the best trade off...:think:

I did the work so now, how about fun?!
I am so feeling this! It's time...😉

Or is that purr esses the sits?
Hee hee, you're so silly Banjo! :flail:

Let’s do it again!!!!!
That would be me if I was there! You would have your hands full with Banjo & Me, the laundry loving pair. :thumbsup:

Looks like a good machine and since it's been Banjo tested and apPURRoved, at least one of the problems is solved!
And almost forgot perhaps the most important one -- finding the card!!! :yess::clap:
Yes, keep a-goin'! One foot -- in whatever condition it's in -- in front of the other! We'll get there if we all help each other! :hugs: :cheerleader::yess:

I've just heard from Hekitty's vet. She has very nominal hyperthyroidism. They are going to start her on Methimazole until I can arrange for her to have radioactive iodine treatments.
Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 Carleton just had the I-131 treatment last month and he goes for his post T-4 test tomorrow. Prior to that he was on Methimazole until we could save up for the radioactive iodine treatment. If there's anything you would like to know or ask please feel free to pm me. I would be more than glad to share since it was a very positive experience. (I'd be glad to drive you to Wilmington if I lived closer.)
Oh Hekitty and Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 , sending wishes for a good treatment and feeling well!
And for Carleton and neely neely also wishes for wellness and health!
Gracie has hyperthyroidism, has been on methimazole with great results. I've heard of the iodine treatments but don't know much of anything. I'll have to look up info.

Update:
Banjo picked up the catamavan, thoughts are that she paid for it since the credit card's missing.

Toe and back aching pretty badly.

Expensive new hot water heater hopefully is being delivered tomorrow.

Jcatbird Jcatbird is totally wiped. She sends loving thoughts to everyone and thanks so much for all the moral support and love being sent her way.

Mentioned that if she is able to post later it will be a short one.
Jcatbird Jcatbird , it rains and pours and rains some more! :redheartpump: and if anyone can do it you can, but if anyone deserves some peace and calm it's you also!!

Flybynight Flybynight Sweet Banjo for sure but also a cat that marched to her own drummer. Lol Sooooo funny!

N NY cat man I had been thinking about that. We are going through that too. Flowers, Whistle and Banjo especially but everything has shifted. Banjo calls and Whistle swear he’s. Flowers is reclusive. As with humans, it takes time and we just offer distractions and comfort.

tabbytom tabbytom I always love the pictures of prayer kitties. Yes! Prayers for Carleton and Hekitty.

neely neely Yes. Banjo will fluff and fold.:lol: She and the Clowder will donate fur to the fabric to make sure their hooman stays warm this winter. Lol Then they will all probably put the clothes in a nice pile so we can wash and spin again! Whistle wants his turn.

dustydiamond1 dustydiamond1 Whistle is a supurrvisor. He decides which cat decorates which clothing items. Bonnie gets the whites. Lol Lady gets the sweaters, coats and darks. Her fur meets the public. Long fur for clothing, short fur reserved for food.:lol:

M maggiedemi I can just picture it! Late at night I hear giggles. The next few days packages start arriving and the fun begins! Next thing I know, Banjo is painting smiles on everything!!! Yep.;):lol::)

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 Yay! Laundry! I was so happy to get that machine! No more washing clothes in the tub! I am pretty sure Banjo had the card the whole time. Maybe she can get one in her name soon. Lol
News Flash!!!!! New hot water heater ! The washer people recommended a plumber and his sister is a rescuer where I use to live. I’m talking, she pushed my heater to be installed quickly. The owner did the work with my bell. In talking, he suggested someone to help me with another repair! One foot in front of the other and one thing leads to another if we keep moving ahead. It’s true that we help each other along in this world. All of us. :grouphug:

pearl99 pearl99 Thank you. Calm and peace would be a nice change here. I have it from someone whose cat had the iodine treatment that it kept her very well for many years! She is still with them and no problems from that. I’ll try to get them here with info.

rubysmama rubysmama Things still are in cat zoomie land here. Never a dull moment! However ‘, I can take a looooong hot bath now. Lots of hot water! Before I had limited hit water, now, 40 Gallons! Happy dance!! Another mountain climbed!!
Those vibes and prayers always work. Please keep them up everyone!

Whenallhellbreakslose Whenallhellbreakslose Have you in my thoughts tonight.:hugs:
