An update: First time I have seen them both on Cooper's bed. Its a prime sunshine spot. Sorry its a little small.

Aw, K....that's so sweet. Gracie (our Lab) and Maeve the cat used to do that on her dog bed, too....and Gracie did not seem to mind.

Labs are so tolerant and cool.

I am so happy she has made herself right at home.

So sweet...

If Niki (dog) is on her bed Shelby (cat) joins her BUT if little ity-bitty Shel is the first to plop down in the middle of Niki's bed - Nik will sniff Shel and then lay down next to the bed - usually because of a bop on the snout from Shelly -- dogs are so sweet - when I see it I remove Shel from the bed accompanied with the prerequisite stink eye from her.

My favorite was when the boys were little we had fancy rats - we taught Niki not to eat them and she ended up cuddling them to her tummy like she was their mother - this backfired on us when some "ugly cousins" of the fancy rats visited our property and Niki would protect them rather than chase them away. Adding Princess Shelby corrected this particular problem :)

It worked for me...both firefox and chrome...i have had more gliches with FF to date. I'd add it to Scott's "bug" thread - might help remind folks to post their gliches :)

Will do . . . I'm using FF for what it's worth. Wonder if it's a mod thing versus member?

Sorry guys. I tried to see it as a guest and couldn't. Maybe only Mods can do this? Right after "The Big Change-over" a member had posted a scan from his computer of his blood work. Maybe that was tweaked out. I put the picture on FB, too.

When you see hair on the carpet, they can look at you and say in unison "he/she <over each other> did it!!!" :P

Gracie Kitty update:

Not sure how it happened, but, she broke off one of her fangs. It was getting infected. She got a shot of pain killer and a shot of antibiotics yesterday and is still feeling no pain. Gobbled her food and is running around like a crazy kitty. Has to go on Monday to get the tooth root removed.

For a recycled kitty, she is getting expensive. Have to get a pet carrier.....the taped up beer box cannot hold her.

Ouch, no biting the caps of beer bottles for her then! Karen, you'll just have to spring for real beer bottle opener. :)

ah, poor Gracie....who knows how they do these things (trying to bite the vacuum maybe?)

yeah, pet ownership can be costly, My friend's dog gets all kinds of treatments to the tune of $300 a week.

I am sure she appreciates it from the bottom of her kitty cat heart that you're watching out for her..

Wish you lived next door, I have an extra carrier right here. Going to donate it to the vet's office.

Give her some probiotics after the antibiotics (you know I had to say it......)

The antibiotics were in shot form. Not as big a hit on the gut that way and I don't have to give her pills for 2 weeks! :(

Everyone who subscribed to this thread- I am sorry. It didn't occur to me that you would get these testing emails. We mods were testing what happens if someone is warned and how to quickly ban a blatant spammer.

My mom has my egyptian mau addicted to cat treats (beef). Both my mau and siamese will only eat fresh tuna or fancy feast with extra gravy..What?! Not my doing but I did train my cats not to get onto tables and counter tops.They also leave all our ornaments on the Christmas tree alone. My mau is the most socially attentive. I have taught him to sit, lie down and come at command. My siamese isnt like that at all. To get his respect, I have to scratch his back, brush him, and play with him. Both of mine are trouble makers to some degree if i dont play with them regularly because they will play with each other and boys will be boys. It usually results in te younger irritating the older when he is done ten they get in fights.

Thats the most important thing with cats, play enrichment. This is how I keep my cats loving me and not wanting me upset with them. Lot os yarn dangling and laser chase and bird stalking

    • I've assumed for the last 8 years that I have gluten intolerance, or NCGS as I see it's now called. I thought that I had testing done (blood tests) that indicated I did not have celiac disease, and proceeded to follow a gluten free diet, most of the time. I've had gluten different times for different reasons, mostly because I started thinking "This can't be true. I should be able to eat my delicious home made bread!" and I suffered the consequences. Mostly pain in my neck and upper back, burning between the shoulder blades, also bloating and cravings for sugar and junk food. Each time, it took longer to recover from having gluten in my diet. The last time was over the holiday season last Christmas. Now I'm having pretty persistent symptoms, with the addition of occasional severe epigastric pain. So, off to the doctor I went to get this severe pain checked out. I found myself having an EGD a few days later, and when I woke up from my propofol induced stupor, there was the nice gastroenterologist telling me that he'd done biopsies to check for h. pylori AND CELIAC. I was floored. He didn't know I'd been gluten free. He did find mild gastritis and reflux, and no sign of hiatal hernia, which is what I really thought I had. I've looked through all my test results from the last 10 years, and can find nothing about testing for gliadin antibodies, or any of the tests mentioned here for gluten issues. I did have allergy testing done that was negative for wheat but I know that's not the same thing. I'm assuming that my biopsy will be normal, but that would be meaningless because I've been mostly gluten-free. The only times I've had gluten since January is maybe five times when I've had a couple of croutons on my salad at Olive Garden, or had an egg roll or wonton soup. If it's positive, then I know I've not been as vigilant about eliminating gluten as I should be, and I will have to stop using my wooden spoons (that my Daddy made) and my wood cutting boards (that my Daddy made) and throw away my favorite plastic spatula. My wooden cooking things were in use long ago, when I was still cooking wheat pasta, etc. So I know they are contaminated. My husband is telling me that there can't be enough gluten in those utensils to make a difference, but I've always worried about it a little bit. My Daddy can't make me any more things to replace the ones I have... I think right now that maybe the best thing for me would be to actually have a formal diagnosis, because that would make it easier for me to stick to the gluten free business. Right now it's too easy to let it slide, and to let people convince me that it's OK "just this one time". But - I'm wondering if there are any drawbacks that I am not aware of, and if anyone here knows please tell me what they are! If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? I really need to be sure because I have two children. One of them has anti thyroid antibodies (I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis) and that son also has alopecia areata and psoriasis. He is gluten free along with me.  
    • I found turmeric that had written on the packaging the "this item was farmed using the same machinery as wheat." Since I have not found a turmeric spice with this label or any other indicating it is gluten-free or not. I stay away ! I think people are differently with their sensitivity level ... but I will not even use a curry blend with turmeric in it, unfortunately.  
    • Don't beat yourself up about it.  The company may have changed suppliers or it may be put together in a different plant than previously. I hope they didn't CC you but if you have had some mystery glutenings at least you may have discovered the cause.
    • Good advice from Ennis. My doctor (allergist MD) had me eliminate gluten, and a whole lot of other things, and said to continue with my elimination diet until symptoms improved. When you add gluten back in try to do it in a form that is a 'pure' as possible. I used Cream of Wheat and Triscuits and though it took 3 days for a severe reaction to happen it did. He said to add it back in for a week or until I reacted. After I reacted he sent me to a GI who confirmed celiac. My diagnosis was before the newer tests came along and I also showed a false negative with blood testing.
