Mine and my sims haha

Bisco a few days ago. As I was typing this I just got a lump in my throat when I thought about the fact that I'll most likely be leaving him. I'm going to miss my boy so damn much.

Amina's dog Skyler had a puppy. Can't remember the little dog's name but I think it's a boy. I didn't play very much today.

I am obsessively checking the ratings for Sleepy Hollow. It went down by a million and half for the second episode but it still has pretty good ratings at 8.59 million. I really want this show to get a second season. Like I said somewhere else I haven't been this excited about a show since I started Scandal.

I started making some icons as well. I made another batch of Community icons and you can find them at [livejournal.com profile] buttercup_magic I was too lazy to put them up on DW haha.

I keep sleeping and thus I keep having strange as fuck dreams. The last one my dad died *knocks on wood* and the one before that was like in high school and then it turned into apocalypse and then Martel swooped in like the motherfucking Batman and rescued me and then made a speech and then burnt shit down and like when we in the sky the fire looked like it was on top of a birthday cake. WTF? I swear to god I actually dreamed this shit.

I've download some fractions sheets and I'm going to work on those today and whatnot. I'm still working on my languages.

And I finally got the book. It is really heavy which I really like and I love the pages and the layout and AH. I'm such a book nerd.

Oh and I found an affordable vet near the house. I still have to get a carrier and I need to check exactly how much will an exam be. But I think I'm going to take him out that one. It's on our normal route but I'm going to take after we get everything done so I can stay with him. Bisco is a little shy around new people.

Oh hey guys I forgot to mention this due to my Sims play and excitement about that.

Two of my childhood friends had their babies last month. Briunka had a daughter, Jerriuna, with her husband and Naria had a son, though when she last visited us she said the doctor told her it was a girl haha

The kids came over today. I talked with them a bit. I've also been nicer to my grandma today. Maybe it's because I'm in a better mood, idek.

Bisco is doing alright, still adorable. Paul is alright as well. The kittens are almost full grown cats, but the little black and white one still follows Bisco around. I think it mildly annoys him haha.

I realized as I was looking at my LJ that besides the meme, I haven't really updated much. Well let's make this entry the update.

Writing wise, I've written 21,628 words this month. That's not bad, but I was going for 30,000. Some day I only wrote half of my daily goal, but I'm pretty happy with what I have this month.

I've also been developing the countries and religions outside of Adeodata. There are two "discovered" continents, Aigiria and Abera or "The Heart Isles". They haven't really came into the story fully but both of them will be major players sometime soon. But I want to write about them, I just need to do some more fleshing out.

Reading wise, I'm currently on my sixth book of the year. I want to try to finish it before January is over, so it can count towards January. My sort of goal is to read 5 books a month, if not more, but it's not a hard fast rule.

My sleeping schedule is still out of whack. I took my meds last night, but I didn't fall asleep until like 6 and I slept most of the day. I even missed the premiere of the Carrie Diaries, though I woke up long enough to actually change the channel to the CW.

Everyone here is alright. Bisco is doing well. His little mini me will not leave him alone. I call him Chip because he reminds me of chocolate chip ice cream. He's really cute.

This is Smudge. Smudge almost certainly is entering chronic kidney disease, if not renal failure, and her people need help paying for her vet care. She needs to have a urine sample taken, she'll need fluids and medication on an ongoing basis, she'll need bloodwork, and she'll need special food. They need help to get her through being diagnosed and getting her started on her treatments. [livejournal.com profile] natalief links to her PayPal account, where she's asking for donations, in her post about Smudge. She also links to her Ravelry patterns that are for sale.






This is Ash, better known as Buddy, being held by [personal profile] nonny. Buddy is an anxious cat who has panic attacks. One of his triggers is the litter box. He can't use them. Therefore, he urinates and defecates elsewhere. This is creating problems, as can be expected, in his person's living situation. His person, Paul, lives on $200 a month in an apartment with two other people. Buddy is Paul's service animal; he's done things like bring Paul his bag of medication. Buddy is also tightly bonded to his sister, Girlie, and they cannot be separated. Paul can't afford to take Buddy to a vet, get him diagnosed as anxious, and started on medication to try to work on the litterbox issue without help. Because of his income, he doesn't qualify for Care Credit, and most vets don't do payment plans. If you can donate, Paul's PayPal account is p.a.pierce@gmail.com. If you want more information on the situation, [personal profile] nonny has a post about it.

My coworker John told me that his cat was seriously ill--throwing up, lethargic, refusing food, dropping weight. The previously healthy 6-year-old, 15-pound cat had lost a third of her body weight over the last few months. The vet couldn't find anything wrong with her. Blood tests were clean, and she didn't have any known illnesses. Yet she was a few days from organ failure.

That was a week ago. She's fine now. The solution was... to stop feeding her Purina cat food.

When John told me that, and said that friends of his had the same problem with their cats and Purina cat food, I looked into it. Holy shit. Take a look at the consumer complaints about Purina cat and dog food. This exact same problem has been an issue with Purina pet foods since 2007, but since this summer, the rate of complaints has picked up drastically. People who previously had to problems with Purina are reporting issues. Comment after comment sounds the same:

I've been feeding my three cats Fancy Feast canned food Chopped Grill Feast for many years. They have always devoured their meal and licked the plates clean. Last week, I noticed they did not want to eat much and went from plate to plate, ate a little. Next day, none of them would eat it. I kept trying new cans. What they did eat made them vomit and one cat was lethargic for days. I refuse to buy any more of this food. It's very scary. I don't know what is wrong with the food, but I fear it has toxins in it. I switched to another brand and the cats are fine now. Did anyone else experience this?

-----

My dogs have been eating Purina Dog Chow (green bag) for about four years. They used to eat only Iams, but due to financial issues, we had to go with a cheaper brand. The last bag I purchased was about a week and a half ago. My 14 years old Labrador has vomited about 5-6 times and my German Shepherd has vomited about 4 times. Something is wrong with this food! The food has a kind of metallic smell to it. It just does not smell right. I'm taking it back to the pet store. I am changing my dogs' food, it's just not worth taking the chance to save a few dollars.

-----

We purchased a large bag of Purina One Salmon dry cat food to give to a needy pet owner. She emailed us a couple of days later ,to say that there were maggots, lots of them with what looked to be like strands or webs with more dead gnats or flies, pieces of web in the food and "shells" of gnats or flies in the bag. Cats would not eat much of the food and, fortunately, they did not get sick. The store had noticed this problem in other bags and was willing to swap out.

-----

I purchased a 34 lb bag of Purina One Smartblend dog food every three to four weeks for my two Labradors. The last bag I purchased seemed fine until I noticed a new infestation of little black bugs. Upon further inspection through the contents of the bag, I noticed clusters of white "eggs" adhered to quite a bit of the food. Some of these clusters contained larvae in the process of hatching. I immediately threw out the remaining contents of the bag but did save samples for my vet.

We went out of town last weekend and had friends dog sit for us. We originally attributed their lethargy and random vomiting to separation anxiety. Although they are doing better, I am still concerned and will be watching them closely. As stated, I saved samples of the infested dog food for our vet in the event that anything results from this issue.

-----

I recently switched to the Friskies Poultry Variety pack (32 cans) that says it must be used by August 2013 (12281789 09:31 lo61237) sku (050000454242). I have 5 cats and feeding them this food, I noticed some of them throwing up. There's nothing in it but liquids, no hair ball, no food, nothing. My cats range from 8 weeks to 13 years old.


I switched my own cats to Purina a couple of months ago, and their coats look so much better than they did on the old brand of cat food... but Buffy has started vomiting stomach liquids. Purina and Fancy Feast are off the menu. Permanently.

I have no idea why this isn't news. But if you're feeding your pets any Purina brand, please don't wait for media confirmation that something is going on. Stop feeding your pets Purina immediately.
