We all need cuddles, don't we? Ever meet a Golden Retriever who wasn't all lovey?

Welcome to the nearly world famous Ace of Spades Pet Thread

Cuddle up and enjoy.

A Little of This. A Little of That.

Now Let's Meet The PetMorons

Regular Moron Weasel submitted this picture of Weasel Dog and his blankie. Cute. And cuddly.


juneau.jpg

This is Juneau, and Sapwolf had the following story/suggestions for us:
She sleeps light.....I'm sleeping on the couch now.

Possible captions:

"From Russia with Love"
"More Bite to back up her Bark"
"Her WASR-10 trumped my Kimber 1911"
"Latest member of the ...Alt-Right"
"Slavic Beauty...Catch it!"


minnie.jpg

JWB7605 shared this photo of Minnie with us. Here's a little bit about this athletic dog.:
This picture describes the Goldendoodle breed personality, and anything suffixed with "Doodle" in general.
I have to take her for a walk or to the dog park about 5 times a week.
She gets a high protein diet, and weighs 49 pounds. She can run with almost any breed, including Whippets!
If you're not into a lot of fresh air, exercise, and constant companionship, a Doodle is not the breed you want.


samuel adamas.jpg

Check out these 3 amigos owned by Samuel Adams.

Old timey commenter now mostly lurker Samuel Adams here. For the Boston Terrier loving morons, here are my babies. The princess by herself is Cora, who we've had since she was a pup and the two others are rescue males Freddy and Teddy (I know, previous owner was dying of cancer and we didn't have the heart to change their names.) My wife is still on Fakebook and has been a member of their Boston Terrier addicts group for a couple of years now.


cat.jpg

Finally a cat. Hey, we just take the photos as they come in. We show no favoritism here.

Here's my almost-10-year-old buddy Kismet. He's diabetic (doing well on insulin) and suffers from neuropathy, so he can no longer jump. But he's otherwise completely happy, and no matter where I am (I'm wheelchair-bound, and telecommute so I'm always home) he's sure to be nearby.

Regards,
Russ

Best wishes for Kismet.


rufus.jpg

Meet Rufus, quite the abused dog we would say. Wouldn't you agree. Here is his story.

Hi,

Longtime lurker JimP here. This is our rescue dog Rufus, a lab/pit bull mix. He's about 10 years old, and has been with us for the last three. As you can see, he's got a pretty tough life here.

cat2.jpg

Last but not least is this good looking cat.

"Meet Reesey the grumpy cat. She is 3 yrs old and rather standoffish most of the time, but very lovable about feeding time-can be trailed by the hair she sheds! AOS is great! CCY"

Thank you for your cat photo and the compliment about AoS.

*****

Well folks. That wraps up another Pet Thread for the week. I know there are cat owners out there. Please send in some of your photos. The dog owners are keeping the in box full. So if you have a picture, tip or some other tidbit you can send them to us here at petmorons at g mail.

Best wishes to all facing tough winter weather today and through the upcoming week.

17 We Morons clearly have high standards in the pet department. Although I see a few looks of disapproval in the photographs, so it seems the Morons have work to do to meet the Moronimal's standards. Keep the treats coming, humans!

21 Well, I don't know if i can envision my cats jumping in an ambulance, but yesterday while our son has been sick, one cat came and curled up right beside him and purred. They think purring might be a way cats heal themselves, and since she normally doesn't come sit by him, I thought that might be the reason.

Just got in from clearing the snow. We were lucky and just got an inch, maybe less. Even after two years, it still feels odd not to shovel out a spot in the yard for the poodles to use.

30 Well what a fine crew!

Weaseldog is not what I expected him to look like. I don't know what I expected. Maybe bigger and more intimidating.

Is Juneau a Borzoi? Pretty doggie.

Minnie is quite the athlete. How old is she?

The Boston terriers take me back to my childhood. My parents ' friends had a couple and they were fun little guys.

Kismet is BIG. Lovely coat, unusual color.

Rufus, well what can you say except he looks pretty content.

Reesey doesn't look Grumpy at all. She is cute enough to almost convince me to try a longhair breed.

Thank you to the cobs for doing this thread and thanks to everyone who sends in their photos. I don't always get a chance to comment, but this thread is looked forward to and enjoyed each week.

41 "Can you envision a cat doing this?"

Yes, I can, because I became a foster caregiver for a cat that would not be parted from his dying human, a veteran with cancer. I have a friend who works at the local VA hospital and has gotten to know some of the docs really well. One day one of the docs came to her and said they needed help ASAP with a cat that would not leave the side of a veteran who had just been admitted to the hospice unit and wasn't expected to live more than 2 or 3 days at most. The vet had been wheeled in in a wheelchair clutching a cardboard box, and when the admitting nurse opened the box, inside was a cat that came out and clung to his dying owner for dear life.

The staff obviously couldn't let Tiger stay in the vet's bed or roam around the hospital, so the doc asked my friend for help. My friend said she knew of someone [yours truly] who fostered cats in emergency situations and that she would phone me, which she did and explained the situation.

I said I'd be happy to give Tiger a foster home, and the VA folks could bring him over whenever it suited them. I had a sudden inspiration, and suggested that whoever brought Tiger to me should bring a camera too, and take pictures both of the room where he would be staying and his bed, new cat toys just for him, etc., and that way the veteran would know that Tiger was in a real home and not in a shelter where he might be put to sleep. They thought that was a great idea!

About two hours later a doctor and a nurse from the VA came over with Tiger, we settled him in his "guest suite," and the doc took a whole series of photos of Tiger in his bed with his toys and his water bowl and kibble dish nearby. Tiger obviously missed his owner intensely, but we did our best to comfort him, and my kittehs came and sat near him so that he would know he was in a cat-friendly place.

I heard from my friend the next day that the doc printed out the photos of Tiger as soon as she got back to the VA and attached them to a large piece of poster board to give to the veteran. She said that when he saw it, he teared up and could hardly speak, he was so relieved that his precious cat (his closest friend, BTW, he had no family) was safe and being cared for by another cat person. The veteran died early the next morning, about 12 hours after he was given Tiger's photos.

I cared for Tiger for about six months-- he was eventually adopted by a respiratory therapist who works at the VA and has lots of experience with caring for traumatized cats. Last I heard, Tiger is doing well and has come out of his shell enough to be a "dad cat" to a new kitten in the therapist's household.

Long story, but proof that cats can be faithful to the end too.

WD is a complete spoiled prima donna, and is never happy to have to go out in the snow. She has almost zero fur so she mostly just doesn't like the cold.

Here's a tip we use when snow is forecast - spread an old shower curtain on the ground before it starts and you will have a nice bare patch for your pets to use when you pull it up later.

49 Weasel, that's a great idea about tge shower curtain. Our dogs go tearing out the door and about halfway across they remember the ice. It's funny to watch but I'm terrified they are going to slide into each other and get legs tangled and break something.

Posted by: Abby at January 07, 2017 03:11 PM (HBU7W)

50 Supposed to take two of the cats in this morning for vaccinations. Cats had spent the night indoors as the temperatures had plummeted. So started calling their office to see if open, all I get is their after hours recording even 15 minutes after they are supposed to be open. So decided it wasn't going to happen, put food outside for the cats, and what sight greets me - icy whiteness laying all over the ground, just like last night as I slowly drove home from work.

52 BTW Weasel, I bought 2 of those heated cat beds you mentioned a couple weeks ago. I got the small size for the younger cat that likes to curl up in tiny spots and the larger size for the elderly cat that can't curl too well anymore.

They are fabulous beds. Too bad the cats totally refuse them, the ungrateful little b@$t@rd$. No amount of catnip will entice them. Sigh. Guess my friend's chihuahua and the porch cat that comes to visit on cold evenings are going to be happy.

MH, you are right about Goldens being lovers. But some friends have a nine month old Rottweiler who could give them a run for their money. She is convinced the world exists to cuddle her. I'm very popular since she can lean all her weight against me without knocking me over.

Howdy, critter lovers!

Temperatures were in the single digits last night.

At 5:00am, I was awakened by a loud meowing. Not unusual, but this was from outside! I was on my feet heading for the door before I was hardly awake.

Poor old gray kitteh Spark had been out all night. Didn't seem any worse for the wear - he's pretty hardy. (He's the one who thinks and acts more like a dog.) But I notice he's happily curled up asleep most of the morning.

Milady was the last to bed, and she said, some of her last thoughts were a mental count of critters, but it was late, she's still recovering from the flu and had a long day.

Anyway at least Spark knows how to meow loudly if he wants in!

When I came home from the ICU after a bad motorcycle accident, my four cats at the time never left my side except to eat occasionally and go outside to potty. Most of the time they positioned themselves around me with at least one paw touching me.

Yes, cats can be just as committed as dogs.

Posted by: Soona at January 07, 2017 03:15 PM (Fmupd)

61 46 and 47--

Thank you-- I should have added that the local VA hospital is exceptional in the care they give our veterans, and it's not unusual for staff to go out of their way to help in ways that go beyond medical care. Given all the scandals that have come out of the national VA administration in the past couple of years, I'm glad to be able to share a good story from a specific VA hospital.

Just leave them plugged in and in a sort of out of the way place. It took our kitties a while to try out the first one - then they would fight over the it and ignore the second one - until about 2 months later then they did the math and figured out that 2/2 = 1 cat per bed.

63 Took Mr. Val to the doggie chiropractor today.

When I first heard of such a thing I was skeptical of the efficacy of it but Borzoi, with their long necks and high-speed roughhousing, frequently get injuries to their necks and hindquarters. After treatment, they get actual relief and move more fluidly and with less pain; it's not some psychosomatic thing either. And they enjoy their treatment; some actually groan with pleasure when they get manipulated.

64 My family always makes fun of me for the cat, as he is absolutely 'my' cat and I am not particularly a cat person. His favorite is going to sleep tucked into my armpit. With all the allergy news right now, I must say that living with a cat has made all mine much easier, so even with allergic kids, a little dog and cat hair is probably good (not asthma, but regular allergies).

71 I have spent the last 24 hours in online banking hell, albeit with really, really nice people at both credit unions' customer service lines, but still .... Anyway, puppy has not gotten a decent walk yet, and once I got all of this settled, I had every intention of taking her for a ride in my new (to me) car since I finally got a cover for the back seat. But it's still wicked cold so I'm hoping it really will get up to 40 and then she might get her ride.

This is a doggie who I can turn around from any walk just by asking "do you want to go for a ride?" Instant bee-line back home. "Do you want cheeeeeese?" also works.

It might maybe snow a little bit starting around 4:00 which I hope it does because she is just so thrilled by snow in any amount. Does anyone know why that is, why dogs find snow so incredibly exciting?

73 I thought about getting one of those heated beds when he posted, then I realized that Tucker would never come into bed to keep me warm and nixed the idea.

Weasel,
I opened the front door today to see 5 or 6 inches of snow. Opened the storm door, the bastard just looked at me like I was stupid.
About noon, I finally pulled out my big rubber boots, and he went apeshit.

85 *delurk*

I did know a golden retriever who was not typical of the breed. I grew up with him. He was more ornery than you could possibly imagine from a dog, whip smart, neurotic as all get-out, and the only person he figured was above him in the hierarchy was my father. My parents bought him from a mall pet store (mom felt sorry for him, figured he'd been there so long that they were looking to get rid of him *somehow* and not necessarily pretty-like), he was a puppy-mill puppy. He terrorized Mom and me when we'd think to go into HIS back yard, and was an escape artist. He chewed the screens off all the back windows of the house, and a lot of the bricks, too. I think we'd have all been happier had he gone to a home with a bunch of boisterous, active boys and more land, as that's the kind of place he'd find in his many, many wanderings.

Apparently, orneriness leads to a long life, because that pain-in-the-backside dog, puppy-mill purebred though he was, lived to be 16. Fortunately, he mellowed a lot as he aged.

Reminds me of something I saw on someone's podcast where a commentator on CNN said the N word with regards to a quote from someone else and the female host then went into paroxysm(s?) of outrage that someone would use that word on her news show. She even came back to it after the segment was over to draw attention to it again and apologize.

Long story, but proof that cats can be faithful to the end too.

The Pet Thread featured him in August and I am very grateful to have had that post. I miss him more than I ever imagined possible.
I will be submitting my kitty Rosie soon. She is trying to guard me during Chemo like Romeo, but she is neurologically challenged and is a bit slooooow on the uptake but trying, nonetheless.

I'm not sure about the hairless breeds; the ones that I do know that are close to being hypoallergenic are Siberians.

They are absolutely beautiful long haired cats.

However, they are pedigreed and costly. But most breeders will work with in terms of finding out if you're allergic.

Also, hairless breeds are kind of strange. It's like they're made out of suede-- warm, living suede.

Actually old dog in mo nailed it - we named her Olive after Olive Oyl because of her long stick legs. She's a total lap dog ONCE she decides she likes you.

She has a little bit of a sad story. We got her at the animal shelter two years ago and she was a real mess. She had been at the shelter for over three months, didn't present herself very well and she didn't have many chances left. When she was surrendered to the shelter she had stitches in her hind leg that were long overdue for removal which we later found out we're the result of surgery to repair a broken hip by removing the ball on her femur. She clearly hadn't been treated well and at 8 pounds she was terrified of everything. Her leg has healed and she gets along fine but her gait is a little funny and she's missing a lot of hip mass on one side.

It took her a while to trust us but she is a GREAT little dog.

I have a Poodle, have had others and really like the breed, but, these folks ain't right in the head. They write long passionate posts about how little Ramon or Desdemona are their soul mates and their only reason for living or if R/D have left this mortal coil, they write about how they can't go on without R or D. They post pictures of the dog's morning, afternoon, evening and pajama outfits. Christmas was a veritable explosion of new outfits for everyone except my poor Etta--she has a gorgeous fur coat, she doesn't need a cheerleader outfit or a sequined evening gown.

Good on you. Your willingness to take a chance on a "reject" has paid off for all involved.

Maybe it's the light or camera angle or something, but it looks like her lip is just starting to curl up, like those little dogs do when they snarl. I'm sure she is wonderful around the people she knows, but not being one of them, I still don't think I would turn my back on her.

If you search "apply ointment to cats eye" there's a lot of info. Some videos, some PDF's and so on.

I think the critical thing is if the cat likes being handled or not.

My cat is not a lap cat, and every time she's had surgery, it's been really hard for both of us when I gave her pills. She really couldn't run away, but she hated basically being grabbed and having something shoved down her throat. That being said, she didn't fight the medicine as much as she could, and I think this is because she knew it made her feel better.

That all being said, I think "towel" is a good idea.

203 Depends on the cat, some you can dab the antibiotic on on finger and start doing chin- and brow noogies with another finger, and slyly start rubbing the eye socket and around the lid with the medicated finger when the cat is starting to love it. This does not work on some cats.

It is important to remember that some vets prescribe Erythromycin salve for cats, and it can become irritating as it decays in storage. I was not told that intially and saved some from one kitten's treatment, and now my other cats hate having stuff rubbed near their eyes because I used it and it apparently irritated their eyes.

Of course, my cats hate everything, so it might not have contributed as much as I feared

231 *Try this: Put cat near edge of counter or table. One person holds the cat with their right arm, arm going across the rump, under the cat and around to the upper belly. Cat's front legs should hang over the table. First person's left hand holds arms down and together. Other person pulls cat's head back with one hand, and puts a bead of ointment in the eye with the other hand.

Yeah. Well. It's all I got.

278 Medicating Cat Trick! This actually works, with minimum injury to all parties involved.

Get one old pillowcase. Modify with heavy cord to make into a drawstring bag.

Catch cat, drop in open bag, close quickly.

Release drawstring carefully, just enough for cathead to protrude. Note: if drawstring opening permits cathead and one arm, cat will escape!

With cathead protruding, apply eyedrops, ear lotion, pills, etc.

When finished, set bagged cat on floor in quiet place and loosen drawstring. Let cat recover dignity.

Totally agree.

However, some types of animals are more amenable to traning than others.

311 I guess this thread is largely done, an hour and a half ago, but just in case, Brunette the 'ette:

Arrange ointment at the ready on a stable surface with the cap removed. This needs to be out of kitty's reach but well within yours. Once you situate the kitty, you need to be able to MOVE.

Pick up kitty. Set kitty on hindquarters with arms free or not. Mostly you are going to be holding the kitty with your legs. Feel free to make a purrito if you can but I think this is possible without a towel or (horrors!) a pillowcase.

So with your non-dominant hand, you are going to take hold of the kitty's head. Your pinkie and ring finger will go under the jaw to keep the mouth as closed as possible. Your middle finger will go over the top of kitty's nose to aid in keeping mouth closed. You will use your index finger and thumb to pry the eye open and you will use your dominant hand to squeeze a line of ointment into the eye. If it is at all possible, use thumb and index finger to massage ointment a bit.

Set down ointment on stable surface. You then need to move your legs and let go of kitty all at once.

I recommend doing this on your bed because kitty can dig her back claws into your bedding rather than going for you. I always do all cat maintenance on my bed, pills, toenail clipping, everything.

If kitty doesn't freak out when you let go, try rubbing her tummy or whatever she likes to make her feel better about the whole experience. If there is a toy she particularly likes, have that ready, same as the ointment, and be ready to toss it as soon as you set the ointment down. With any luck, she'll be so thrilled about the toy that she'll forget what you just did to her. But probably not.

PS: a few years ago, someone determined the ickiest word in English was "moist." They were entirely wrong. It was and is and will forever be "ointment." Yeeesh.

312 She's highly motivated by food - a treat is usually the best way to win her over.

We started giving her a treat after she would go outside and pee - eventually that sort of backfired because she thinks the reward is for going out the door, not the peeing part.

313 Weasel- Fail on your part. You didn't reward the pee. You rewarded going out the door.

314 Weasel- I apologize. I have the luxury to be with my animals 24/7 and that gives me a slanted view on behavior.

315 Actually what I think I rewarded was her coming back inside - but in her little walnut-sized brain it's all the same. She had a pretty rough start in life so I'm willing to cut her a lot of slack!

Oh, no worries!

317 Yeah, I've met golden retrievers that were not all lovey. I should have killed the bastard, but his owner was my business partner. I should have killed him, his damn dog, and his wife. I regret these things after all of these years. They appear in my dreams and I can see how they misused my naivety, but I was focused and couldn't believe that anyone would do me so wrong. All bad dog owners must die, before they can poison the innocent souls of their furry friends. No bad dogs, just bad people.

Thank you!
I've treated him (more or less successfully) twice since I first posted..though he did draw blood today on my first try.
I told him I'd forgive him if he'd forgive ME, and grabbed him again. Resistance is futile, after all.

He's much, MUCH better now: he just jumped up next to me on the bed, then jumped to my shoulder to sit. He's purring and playing and trolling the parakeets again: I'm very, very happy.
My poor little rescue baby hadn't caught a break since he got his nuts chopped off on the 21st, and picked up a URI while he was at the vet. Injury to insult, as it were.

319 I'm so sorry, Mr. Peebles! I hope your guy had a long and happy life.
