An experiment

After a week of isolating Huckleberry in my office, I decided to try an experiment. He was eager to escape anyway.  I left the door open and soon enough he came downstairs checking things out. Ceridwyn was not thrilled.  Boris hasn't noticed yet.

Meet Huckleberry


He belonged to a friend who had to give him up about 3 months ago. Luckily she had him chipped so when he turned up in the woods and the people who found him brought him to their vet they were able to contact her. She is out of of town for the next couple of weeks so I immediately stepped up to foster him until she gets back. If the reasons still exist for her original decision to give him up, I will definitely try to keep him.
he has worms and has high liver enzymes. This could be due to an infection or rapid weight loss (when she gave him up he weighed 11-12 pounds, he now weighs 6.5). The fact that he eats like pig is a good sign according to my vet. He is also the sweetest cat I have encountered. You pet him and he purrs, you pick him up and he purrs.

Not in a good space right now

okay even I admit it that is pathetic. I should learn to not expect anything from anyone

Farewell Sammy


My lovely Sam went to the big catnip patch in the sky last week

I stayed with him. I freaked out when Tess had to be put to sleep but I went with a friend who had to have her 20+ year old cat put down and realized it was fairly peaceful

Am I or Am I


I often wonder what casual acquaintances and my family believe about my sexual orientation. After all, I applaud the repeal of DOMA and the support of marriage for all. I'm going to be 50 something and have never married.
Short answer I like the stick - it is up to you to figure out my gender

Sequestration


Full Disclosure, I work for the Federal Government. I am not lazy and I like to believe the Agency for which I work is serving the public good.

That being said, I am seriously pissed off at Congress for the games they play with the lives of Federal employees, from continuing resolutions to the sequester. Most people have no clue everything that the receive courtesy of the Gov't and once their lives are impacted by the realities of the sequester, they call the wahmbulance. Case in point the whole FAA thing

Don't get me started on tank issue

Astounding to me


The "intellects" at Fox are all in a tizzy with Jon Stewart for pointing out their lack of respect for the constitution I would love to see what their opinions were back in the day about the Unibomber or Tim McVeigh.
