Not Done

I was going to quit this blog since the death of my cat, Rocky, back in January. But I’ve decided to keep it going, even just to talk about other things. Rocky’s death was very hard on me. He had cancer, and deteriorated quickly. I was expecting to have him for at least 6 months, but he was only with us for a little more than a month after diagnosis. I still second guess myself, because in the end I did decide to have him put to sleep. He became a walking skeleton and on the day I decided, he seemed to be in a lot of discomfort. He looked at me, and his eyes told me it was time. He was ready. I wasn’t. So now it’s just me and Michu. Michu seems to know my loss, although he doesn’t miss Rocky. He’s spending more time with me, instead of Jesse. 

Rocky

There’s a lot going on in the Kalahari right now. Film crews were there. A Friends Visit was there. There is some other news too. Lot’s of changes. I just haven’t gotten around to doing some research as to what I can post about and what is private info. I try to cross reference between the boards and Facebook to see what Evi has made available to the public. I’m hoping a name list will be one of the public offerings. 

The arthritis in my hands is killing me. The weather has been damp today. So, I guess I’ll end here. I will try to write more, if there’s anyone out there, LOL!

Very sorry!

I’m very sorry I haven’t gotten the LHR done yet. I’m as far as Kung Fu. I just can’t get into it with all the numbers and no names. Maybe I should discontinue until a new name list is released–if that will ever happen. I’m still time consumed with my physical therapy, going back to work, and taking care of Rocky. He is very thin. Next Thursday we drop his steroids to once every other day. I honestly don’t think it will be long after that. It’s very hard to get him to eat. I have to feed him a spoon of food several times a day. He’s been waking me at 5am to eat, so of course I get up because I want him to eat no matter what. It’s so hard watching him deteriorate. But he still is walking around and lets me carry him around, so he doesn’t seem to be in any pain. He has this pitiful meow, but he’s always been that way. I don’t know how a cat could have such a meow! He sounds like a cat pirate. Argghh… 

My ankle has been bothering me a lot at work so I’ve been taking  Percocet. I’d like to stop, but can’t stand the pain. I don’t take them on weekends. I’d really prefer Vicodin. But I guess the doc would look at you funny if you ask for a drug that they weren’t going to give you.  The one day I was in so much pain I took 2 percocets, 2 Klonopins and an Ambien. Okay, I didn’t know that could kill me. I was knocked out. Lesson learned, but it sure was fun. Moving in stereo. Anyway, I need to go ice the ankle–my favorite time of the day.

Hope to finish the report tomorrow, but honestly with all the numbers it’s just a pain. Most importantly (to me) is that Ella is still around, Oriole was at Cave Men, Kleintjie gave birth.

November Life History

I wasn’t going to do this tonight, I just found out today that my cat, Rocky, has cancer. So I’m far from in the mood to do anything right now. But since I’ll be busy tomorrow I thought I’d get it over with. I really hate the fact that a new public names list hasn’t been released and my name list is out of date with the numbers. I just haven’t been able to keep track.

There were a lot of aborted litters and APREDs this month. Seems strange. 

A new group was formed called the Cave Men. With only 4 members it’s hard to say how long they’ll last. They are made up of Jaxx females and a Lazuli male.

The group encountered Toyota once. Oriole was absent at the end of the month.

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! The last month has been depressing for me as I had ankle surgery in November. I’ve been out of work and unable to walk until 2 days ago, and I need crutches. I can’t go back to work until I can walk without them. I’ve been stuck in the house, except for PT appointments, which really help. I haven’t been able to decorate my house the way I usually do and have a tiny 2 foot pre-lit, pre-decorated tree instead of my 8 foot one. I keep reminding myself that all of this means nothing as long as God is in my heart. I don’t need decor and being out shopping for it to be Christmas. And now Rocky’s cancer….he’s fine now, but there are decisions that need to be made regarding his treatment in the future. This on top of my sister losing her cat, Mumford, to kidney disease last week. It was rather sudden. I don’t know what’s worse–knowing what to expect or just a sudden thing. My Piu was a sudden thing. It sucked. But every time I look at my Rock now I feel sad. I love him so much. I took him off the street 13 years ago. He has a great life. Gotta go now, I’m crying. God Bless you all!

October Life History Report

I’m going to try to get through this with few mistakes. I’m very tired. I’m glad the report came out early, because I’m having ankle surgery on Thursday and I have no idea what’s going to happen.

Meerkats on Nat Geo Wild this Sunday!

In case you missed it, Sunday at 8pm EDT NGW will be showing Clan of the Meerkats here in the US.  

“In the harsh and unforgiving Namib Desert, there are hunters, big and small. A brave clan of Meerkats struggle here, working together to cope in a hostile world. Facing jackals, snakes and birds of prey, as well as the harsh desert climate, life in this tightly-knit clan is full of drama.”

Unfortunately, I’ve never seen this and won’t because my cable company is trying to get me to pay extra for it. I’ve called and complained as to the fact that Nat Geo is part of my package, why isn’t Wild? They’re the same freakin’ company for crying out loud. No, you have to buy the entertainment tier. I don’t believe there’s a DVD yet. Correct me if I’m wrong.

Another thing to watch out for if you live in the UK: http://www.3dtvwatcher.co.uk/cute-but-cruel-meerkats-3d-2468/ 

You’re so lucky!

August LHR

This took longer than I expected. All these numbers! We have a new group, Yardies. Hope they last. Only 2 deaths this month, poor Penetrant Whiskers and Van Helsing male 039. Some last seens, but I think they may still be wandering around somewhere. Once again, if there are any mistakes let me know. There was one typo in the report and I couldn’t figure it out. 

Aztecs have 24 members with an unknown number of pups. Monkulus W and Moliere AZ are dominant. Monkulus gave birth, Kathleen is pregnant. Kathleen and VAZF027  have returned to the group from Pandora. Kathleen was evicted once, and appeared back once. Also appearing back were Che Che and Ellie Jade. The group encountered Pandora once. Visitors: Toblerone and Mollie AZ, Pilko, Bean and VKUF034 all once each. Van Helsing males Krueger, Cecil and Manson 4 times each. Pepper stopped by 6 times and Jizzle 7 times.
