Pepcid AC for Cats

I learned something this week.  Cats can have Pepcid AC (or the generic).  Not the Max Strength, not the Complete.  Just the regular.  And it's been common knowledge since AT LEAST 2006!  Dammmmmit!
Ceilidh is a pukey cat.  She's had the runs for probably 10 years and guess what!  Cured with grain-free cat food!  But it's increased her puking to several times a day.  All day and all night, be careful where you sit and where you walk.  So what does our vet friend suggest?  Pepcid AC.  Works like a charm!  Half a pill in the morning and she's just fine!  
No one could of mentioned this all the times she's been at the vet for her check-up?  All I ever got was, "Some cats puke a lot."

Went to Disney tonight for the Osbourne Lights at Hollywood Studios.  But went to Epcot to eat.

One day I'm going to wear a pedometer and figure out how much walking we do.  Park near Epcot, walk over, walk around and eat (Japan today), walk to front of park, catch bus to the studios, walk around bored (it's a lousy park, really) and starve because there's no food stands and all the restaurants are booked solid, wait for lights and then---


...then walk back out of the park, bus back to Epcot, walk around, eat at The Land, walk out the back entrance, walk around the lagoon to a hotel parking lot.  
Feel like miles and miles.

Catterina Adopted Today!

Momma kitty has been adopted!  Whew!  That's a load off my mind.  She is a super smart cat and shouldn't have to live in a cage.
Our latest fosters:

These are both ferals from a colony but are sweeeeeeeeet, sweet girls!  You'd never know they were fosters.  All they want to do is sit on your lap and purr.  Still kittens but not babies.

All Adopted

Today the final 2 brothers were adopted and Momma is now alone in a cage and will remain there until she is adopted.  Some of that cats from last year are still in cages so this is not a happy thing. 
I feel so bad for her because she LOVED those babies.  She snuggled them and held them and talked to them and nursed them constantly.  Such a doting momma.  And now all she knows is that her babies are gone.
I mean, it's better than having them eaten in front of her in the wild but, it's sad.

Resolve Changed it's Formula

So now I've got white spots on my carpet where I used a new bottle of Resolve to clean cat yak. 

And on the couch from the rabbit jumping up with dirty feet (too much watermelon soaked his pine shavings in bunny pee).

I dumped it out and made my own, I swear, ammonia is a the greatest cleaner EVAR!  Been mopping with it for months, it does not make anyone mark territory.  Cleans oils and smells--like cat pee (foster cats create litter box issues and I end up with pee NEXT to the litter box sometimes) like a BOSS! 
So here's the formula I use now and it also works in the machines.
1 cup ammonia
1/2 cup laundry detergent
1/2 cup Downy (I use Suavitel, it smells better)
1 gallon of water




I know, but he IS such a Fluffernutter!  Can you think of a better name because I got nuthin'.
