    I know I couldn't do it if I were still smoking, I've tried and made it a several yards.

    I wonder why momma is growling but purring, too? I have a friend who is a cat behaviorist. Want me to ask?

    is she fighting with herself???

    The plan was to go into the broom shop and get caught up a bit even though it's Saturday. However, Stepdot is worried about Almond (the cow) being closer to her due date than we initially though. And, she wants a stanchion to milk her in... so...

    We'll build the headwaters and attach a button rope tomorrow, and job done...

    I understand that purring is not always a sign of contentment. Cats will purr to heal themselves (vibrational healing) or when they are in need of something. Kittens will purr when they want milk from mom. When Nikko wants a helpful lift up onto the sink he meows to call me in. Then when I lift him he starts purring. Just an observation of mine. I'll email my friend. Oh, that reminds me. She said to link anyone to her website if they need help (no charge). Maybe it will be better for you to make the contact yourself because you know the details. If you want, tell her you're a friend of Karen Baldassare who referred you. She really is an angel and will help anyone trying to rescue or retain a cat.

    Very happy that I was able to fix a mix by winging it. I was making a 30ml last night and accidently over poured my base. Rather than do math over a small amount I just kind of figured it out by an estimated ratio and it came out perfectly. Happy camper here.

    Thank you Karen....Here is the reply (and she meant purr not hiss)
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Hi C.Blue,


    Yes, it is very common for a scared cat to growl and hiss at the same time. In cats, this is called conflicting emotions. She wants to trust you and love you and let her guard down, so she purrs- but she is also scared and nervous so she growls to protect herself. In addition, many cats purr when they are anxious. Cats use their purr to self soothe and provide comfort, sort of like a young child who sucks her thumb.


    I have a feeling that after you are done with the meds, she will calm down and you will be able to work with her again. This might just be a matter of time and patience and going at her pace. Please keep me posted, I am happy to help.
    Take care, Rachel

    I am hoping tonight will be the final dose... it's been a week since they started.... she is not cooperating at all... hiding under the bed and still growling at me when I enter... I have left the door open so they could come out of the room.. the kittens came out a little to explore but Momma stays put...
    My Sunday football was good.. we won (about time!!!)....
    Taking the sick cat to the Dr's again tomorrow.. still trying to find out why she keeps vomiting... this is a specialist so maybe we can get somewhere..
    Good night everyone....

    Finished the stanchion today, and coaxed the cow about halfway up it. Gonna have to add some grip strips to the ramp... otherwise, it's a frickin' tank!

    After, we went into the broom shop and got started on the week (which is really catch up from last week). Then, off to do the week's grocery shopping before coming home for chores and dinner.

    Now, after a shower and an episode or two (Top Chef over dinner, and New Amsterdam later on), I'm practicing my calligraphy.

    I hope she was able to help you. I'm sorry about the other kitty vomiting and being sick. Hope you get to the bottom of that, as well.

    The calligraphy is beautiful, Shawn. I like your style. And the stanchion ain't so bad, either;)
