7:45 am
hurshy

the vet told me to switch marty to wet food and that he should eat ~3 oz twice a day, but he can have a little more if he's begging for it, because he has a large frame. i'm lucky if i can get him to eat 3 oz total in a whole day! i'm like, you don't understand, he will never beg for food. love, yes. food, no.
7:46 am
sprite

doesn't he like wet food better?
7:46 am
Mom

why the switch, Hurshy?
7:46 am
hurshy

he likes either fine. he is indifferent. he eats to live, and that's all. food is just something you have to have, never something to get excited about.
7:47 am
hurshy

some of his kidney levels were slightly elevated.
7:47 am
Mom

((marty))
7:47 am

your marty sure isn't a Babbler then
7:47 am
hurshy

it's weird cause he LOVES water so i would have thought he'd have the best kidneys of the bunch.
7:47 am
smores

my cats beg - They would love it if the vet told me to I had to give them wet food :)
7:48 am
sprite

he may be drinking a lot instinctively, to keep his kidneys in good condition
7:48 am
hurshy

well i'm planning to switch the girls over as well, apparently cats really oughtn't to have dry food anyway.
7:48 am
hurshy

the girls WILL be very excited.
7:48 am

I have heard that before, hursh. Dogs neither.
7:49 am

really? no dry food?

i've been buying a really healthy brand online though so i was hoping that was good enough.

dogs have a little more wiggle room bc at least they are omnivores, but cats are carnivores who aren't really supposed to eat many carbs.

wow, I had no idea
7:50 am
Mom

hello Car.
7:50 am

mind you, there is a theory for everything... all I know is Terra really does better on wet food. He gets meat now, from different animals, and he is doing grand.
7:51 am
Mom

Ziggy doesn't like wet food :-(
7:51 am
hurshy

yeah i think vets don't usually tell you bc they don't want to come off as pushy and fanatical and they know not everyone wants to spend the more money
7:51 am
Anniebrook

I found out (too late) that dry cat food is not the best thing.
7:51 am
hurshy

but apparently most dry food makers add some special coating that can be addictive and that's why some animals like it better.

hm ok, that is definitely a clear sign, BabbleRabble.

yeah marty loves carrots. i think there is fish oil IN the food sprite and anyway don't think that would excite him any more than anything else. now if i sprinkle on some carrot, maybe.

I'll try adding a little cooked carrot to their food. Sounds like a good idea
7:57 am
hurshy

isn't it mysterious? i mean, what is so special about carrots?
7:57 am
hurshy

it is good for them to have a LITTLE bit of carrot, pumpkin, sweet potato, things like that, for the fiber, but not too much.
7:58 am
smores

I dont know but he sure loves them, the other 2 will eat them also - but he begs for them
7:58 am
tabbycat

A friend has a dog with digestive problems and has to make his food herself. Vet recommended adding a bit of pumpkin to it as well as a little yogurt
7:58 am
tabbycat

Wonder if that would be good for cats also
7:58 am
BabbleRabble

Tabby, did you play spades and hearts about ten, twelve years ago ... played with a tabbycat a lot back then
7:59 am
tabbycat

Cats in the wild eat the stomach contents of their prey and get some veggies that wqy...seems natural that adding a little would be good for them
7:59 am
tabbycat

No, BR...wasn't me
8:00 am
sprite

indeed, tabby. yoghurt or buttermilk is good for dogs, a little bit every day.
8:01 am
hurshy

but NOT for cats - they aren't supposed to have dairy, the milk stereotype notwithstanding. they don't have the enzyme to digest the lactose.

8:02 am
Mom

thanks Car. for your clue also
8:02 am

yes, they would eat grass in the wild. it helps them throw up which apparently they are SUPPOSED to do now and then.

8:12 am

when I lived in Hawaii, there was an earthquake and I was on the 17th floor of the building I lived in. The building was on rollers, so the whole thing was swaying back and forth. Last night, a box fell and my desk shook, so it was cool and much less scary.

I think I would be really scared in an earthquake. I have trouble keeping both feet on the ground and feeling grounded already without a quake!

kosher food... hebrew national hot dogs... that's about the extent of my knowledge...

about the same -- working three days a week every week (which feels good, I think I could do four), and battling one kid or the other over expectations... *sigh* but at least it started raining so I am not worried about the trees and wildlife!

will email you, ruby, as soon as I can, ok?
8:46 am
stidmama

the younger is in high school and struggles to understand that we expect his focus to be schoolwork (not video games) and therefore we WILL be testy when he consistently "forgets" to turn in or do homework. The elder... much more complicated.

8:48 am
stidmama

yep. As a teacher, I know this is a normal developmental stage. As a parent, I know that their immediate opportunities will be limited by lack of engagement. I also know that at least in our country they can always go back to school another time, it will just be harder the more responsibilities they have.

lol BabbleRabble. Especially the Irish ones. They are kind of festive.
8:49 am

and yes, the video games are a real problem for my family. Highly tempted to throw them through the TV and eliminate two time-wasters. Considering dropping internet, too... (that's my time-waster)

after many wrong turns and fall starts, my son finished university at 27 and is very successful now. Try not to despair!

8:52 am
BabbleRabble

You know joining the military has long been thought of the rite of passage to manhood ... if you survived or were not seriously injured
8:52 am
sprite

indeed, ruby. Much more natural, in my opinion, than 'our' rites here. We had something like that when a friend of mine died and it really helped with the mourning.
8:52 am
stidmama

Problem is, sprite -- I am not home much of the time and I go to sleep very early compared to the kid. The enforcement is up to me, and there are needs at his level to be responsible. So for the computer the kid has to have access to do homework. But the games... I have plans.
8:53 am
sprite

true, BabbleRabble. Nasty, isn't it.
8:53 am
stidmama

Military service is an option for only one of my children, and one I hope he will not take. The military has not been good for our family.
8:53 am
rubyfoo

I've only been to a couple, but there is lots of eating and drinking and talking about the departed, sharing good stories, etc.
8:53 am
doseffing

... bitterly disappointed in the Lance stuff ... ... I think they have now effectively killed the golden goose
8:54 am

very good, for those plans. And yes, they should carry some responsibility themselves. Maybe limit gaming to the weekends. Aren't there programs you can installl on computers that block games etc?
8:54 am

Wherefore was that cry?

SEYTON
The queen, my lord, is dead.

MACBETH
She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Diane, I am sure you are too far away to feel the earthquake we had last night
5:06 pm
Soodle

River.... I am still drooling over that pic you posted earlier...... the Criminal Minds guy......... I swear, if I wasn't 52, I would print out that pic and put it up on my bedroom wall!
5:06 pm
dianedecoder

oh yes... way too far, but I saw your comment on FB last night. Is that unusual for your part of the country?
5:07 pm
dianedecoder

and what is wrong with drooling at 52, may I ask ??!!
5:07 pm
Riverdance

very unusual...the last one I remember was back in the early 80's....we are on a fault line but it is usually inactive. It shocked most folks.
5:08 pm
stidmama

but it wasn't that big was it river? only a 3 or 4?
5:08 pm
Riverdance

Soodle.....just go for it....what does age matter....I beat you by a few years and I will print it out as soon as my husband gets the he** out!
5:08 pm
Riverdance

4.6....hey..that is huge for us.....
5:08 pm
stidmama

yes, that's pretty big for you -- was a rolling quake or a rocking one? Or just a shake?
5:08 pm
Soodle

Oh, Diane, its not the drooling I am ashamed of, its the putting up of pictures. The last picture I had on my bedroom wall was Donny Osmond!
5:09 pm
Riverdance

so you liked the hunk but not my pumpkin?
5:09 pm
Riverdance

snort.....yes I loved him too in those days
5:09 pm
stidmama

I remember the first quake I experienced, it felt like trains going past on a track (we had tracks near our home in Virginia). But there were no trains for miles, and the house was on bedrock. LOL by the time I realized my error the quake was over...
5:10 pm
dianedecoder

ha ha ha ... those were the days ! My mom subscribed to Photoplay magazine for we three girls, and we shared a huge bedroom...the walls were covered with photos.
5:10 pm
Riverdance

I was out on my screen porch so probably didnt get the full effect...but definitely felt the rumble that lasted several seconds...I thought my washer was out of balance and banging for my extra load of towels...lol!

oh gee, hope that family will be okay!
9:35 pm

grands are doing fine. K is having a tough time with recess behavior though. to used to being a rough and tumble boy and can't be that way at school. J got a part in the chorus for the Wizard of Oz at her school. I think "new" granddaughter is doing well, no reports otherwise from kindergarten up there!

a dear friend had a death in the extended-but-close family, so I will be helping four days in that classroom while she goes home.

9:36 pm

I had a K today whose body was not big enough to hold the energy, also didn't have much awareness of how one's actions affect the wellbeing of others.
9:37 pm

I understood, but surgery is stressful for everyone.
9:37 pm

I just "sat" on child and kept redirecting. Fortunately in a reading intervention room everything is in smaller chunks.

our K is definitely not to little to hold all his energy--he may be a clone of his dad but he's already built like a football linebacker!

9:39 pm
mcurlschool

I'm still struggling with our reading intervention curriculum. It's tough being handed a teachers manual and being told (in a sense) "have at it!"
9:41 pm

yes -- do you have discretion for how much of it to use? You have so much experience it would be reasonable (imho) to let you use it as guidelines and less as a "code" <-- proud of pirates reference
9:44 pm
mcurlschool

sort of, program is "scripted". I have the "high" of the below grade level kids and so it's not as difficult to get through things. I do skip some items because their attention/focus just won't benefit---instead of using the "write on/wipe off" boards we use our fingers to determine how many sounds in a work; I write things on a small white board and make changes so that all are focused on task and not wanting to draw
9:45 pm
stidmama

Yes, scripted programs ensure you don't leave things out, but fidelity can be dreary. I am glad you have some latitude.
9:45 pm
mcurlschool

sorry,---sounds in a word! silly me. My "team" of teachers are incredible. I am SOOOOOO very happy I chose this position.
