Okay, Just for you, Catullus.

Course my cats don't hold their funny poses for me and past midnight my captions might not be as funny but still...

The video, not mine though, is pretty funny.

That video was funny and yet sad at the same time. That cat was smarter than the people videotaping it.

Speaking of cats...does anyone know anything about horseflies? We have horseflies hanging around laying eggs on our kittens. One of the kittens was sick and weak (and is now dead because it was a better choice than seeing him eaten alive by horsefly maggots - in horses, the flies bite and then lay eggs on the wound, the horse licks the wound and the eggs end up inside the intestines until they mature to a certain point) and I have to keep cleaning off one of the healthy ones. The sick one...the eggs were glued to skin and fur, the healthy one just has it on the surface of her fur. The other two seem to be escaping notice.

D/FW is seven inches above the yearly average (and the year is only half over). As far as I can tell, it means massive amounts of flies and mosquitos, and fleas are bad, too (though they'd probably be bad regardless). I'm sure the birds are pleased, but no one else is.

The kittens are cute though. :) They've taken to following us around, especially the larger female kitten. Today though, she started to follow my grandmother, tripped over a board on the porch and flipped over. XD She's so uncoordinated (and at seven weeks' old!).

Well, I was going to say "Yeah, they suck!" but then I read the rest of your post with abject horror and sadness!!

How truly awful and what a gross condition. I don't have any advice but I'd suggest combing and washing the poor kitties everyday. I'd feel bad about using toxins on the fuzzies (advantage, Quel, or whatever) but from your description I'd say THIS IS WAR and I'd cede no quarter nor take any prisoners!

I have been giving her baths and picking off any stray eggs (and given my past trauma involving maggots, that is torture in and of itself). I check her several times a day, but even so, I worry that she'll have eaten a few of them and get sick. But unlike her brother, she doesn't have huge mounds of them on her (I'd be willing to be there were millions on him - I came home later that night after first seeing them before he ran off and there were still horseflies on him laying eggs).

This whole thing has cemented my decision to leave Texas and never come back. The giant flying, evil roaches are bad enough, but horseflies laying eggs on kittens... >:| I'm going as far north as I can get without freezing to death.

I'm also angry at my neighbor. He gave them dairy milk, which is what I think led to the dead kitten getting sick (he was very, VERY slowly looking like he was getting better after a few days of not eating + diarrhea a week ago). Actually, three of the four were sick, but he seemed to get the worst of it.

Logically, I know it's not my neighbor's fault as he didn't know it'd make them sick, but I'm still angry.

Yeah, I named her Little Mess. :P When they first started walking around, it was hilarious to see them trip over their own feet. Little Mess still hasn't gotten the hang of walking, so more often than not, she seems to skip or hop.

Yeah, well when a Texan says she's worrying about freezing to death somewhere outside Texas I get a feeling her comfort level is a bit different from mine. I doubt she'd find my claims of the wonderful SF weather where the fog rolls in every afternoon to keep things from getting hot appealing. I'd suggest she might like Sacramento where the winters are in the fifties and sixties but I just can't because *I* can't stand the hot summers where it's frequently in the nineties and nearly always at least in the mid to high eighties.

Compared to Texas most places get cold in winter. East Coasters scoffed when I considered an Oregon winter in the twenties (and even in the teens one day!) cold and I *know* only a fellow Californian would understand what I mean when I call a 42 degree winter day cold but compared to Texas, even Arizona is cold.

Okay, if you arent hinting she come here, *I* am!

Gack. I'm sorry to hear all that, Battie. The only thing I can add to the advice here is consider making the cats (the ones you're keeping - are you giving any kittens away?) indoor cats. I know it's hard to imagine if you don't live in the city, keeping them inside, but they live much longer and healthier that way, and no fleas.

Well, I shouldn't say that so definitively - my indoor cats usually don't have fleas, but either from dashing outside once or just from the dogs upstairs or who knows - a flea or two seems to have made its way into the house now. So it'll be Advantage [tm] time! That stuff works like a charm. I highly recommend it. For fleas; doubt it works on horseflies.

I wanted to insist my cats be indoor cats and for the most part they were, but I had a hard time as my living room door opens directly outside and when juggling laundary or a bicycle or groceries I'd have to kick in their general direction to keep them out. Didn't work well. They figured outside was something utterly wonderful and terrific and although absolutely loved me and doted on me inside and insisted they must always be near me, *outside* they figured they had to do everything in their power to keep me from forcing them in.

Also I felt really bad as they *sooooo* loved going outside (and I could understand why) that I hated denying them the pleasure. After a few years I figure I could let them out supervised and leave the door open. I've actually, and I know this sounds like a cat loving whacko anthropomorphising new-speak but I swear it's pretty much true, I have reached an argreement with them; they can go outside two or three times a week and I'll pretend they outsmarted me in escaping, while they are out I'll let them stay out and let them pretend they are escaping my efforts to get them back inside, but when I *really* want them inside (I'll use the voice) or when they get tired of being outside they'll come inside willingly but let me pretend that I outsmarted them and chased them inside. In the meantime I let them pretend that by running inside from me they outsmarted me by not letting me catch them (even though they still ended up inside which was the whole reason I was trying to catch them in the first place). It works surprisingly well. Especially these last six months when I've had work man constant working with the doors open all day and making scary noises.

Indoor cats and supervised outdoor cats *are* much healthier. Go see a vet about internal medicine for ingested eggs. Err on the side of overkill. (Poor kitties...)

===

Um, my cats Tommy and Rosie are getting kind of upset that you guys aren't falling over yourselves gushing and posting comments about how stunning and adorable they are.

I mean, isn't that photo of Tommy with his butt shaved funny at least?

And yes, the toilet-flushing cat video *is* funny but it's not as though the cat belongs to anyone we know. Let's keep a perspective.

Not keeping any of them, though I want to keep LM.

Well, the flies seem to've disappeared for the time being.

Tonight I was petting LM and went inside to grab food...she rushed in as I came back out, slid under my cat, Cali's, legs (Cali was turned sideways). Cali jumped, backed away, hissed...and then started running out of the kitchen, with LM on her tail. I'm laughing really loud when I go to grab LM and take her back outside, so she turns sideways and arches her back at me. *giggle* Then she ran outside like dogs were on her heels. This is the same kitten that goes completely and utterly limp when I pick her up and barely begin to rub her head. Closes her eyes and becomes deadweight. But I can't keep her. :(

Give her to me!!!!!

(Tommy needs someone he can feel superior to; I'm concerned about his self-esteem. Rosie needs to be knocked down a peg or two; I'm concerned about her self-esteem for the exact opposite reason. I think Little Mess could probably do both!)

She probably can. Least pretentious cat I've ever seen. Doesn't even seem to notice when she stumbles and flips ass over head. She keeps walking up to my two adult cats, they freak and run away, and she's left there with a look on her face that screams, "What did I do?"

Tonight one of LM's siblings did that to Tiny, only this time Tiny sniffed at him, then walked away. She's getting less antsy around them. Cali will never adjust though. She has major issues about other cats. XD

(Belated) Awwwww! Very cute. I couldn't get the video to work though for some reason...

I have a picture of my cat Sam that I should upload somewhere, because she looks totally evil, but unintentionally - she's just yawning really wide, but looks like spawn of Satan.

Load Sam! We all will want to see him.

Little Mess died today (or was killed by a dog). Neighbor found her and my grandmother just told me, hours later. I don't think I want to be around cats anymore.
