Kat--your answer was so beautiful it sounds like a line from a poem! I might quote you on something some day. Hugs! Deb

"Rescue Stories" should go to 1TeamKSO...and are ongoing...At first I had thought of them as a Kamp Kuppykakes "event" which was kind of short-sighted ...they so inspire all of us and we do indeed rescue not only our fur babies but each other as well...
By venusdemilo on Oct 22, 2013 at 4:40 PM
Hi Kat! Hope you're doing well. Did you or someone collect the 'rescue' stories & can they still be submitted? Hope you & Wallaby have a wonderful Halloween--whatever that may be for y'all!
By venusdemilo on Aug 8, 2013 at 3:04 PM
Thanks so much Kat. When your Guthrie passed, it hit me hard how bad it would be without any kitteh at all. For 40 years, if I ever lost a pet, there was always someone has who I could pet & hold & squeeze & cry with. None can "replace" another, but they sure help. Doesn't mean I love Millie any less, but hopefully they can be friends. Still so glad you have Wallaby--such a fine guy! Lubs--Deb

That's one of the sweetness characteristics I've noticed in you--that the others were ok. They are doing a LIVE announcement right now & posting photos of 2 suspects in the Boston disaster. Good pics, so I'd figure someone would recognize them & hopefully turn them in. I don't, nor will ever, understand things like this--totally unimaginable! Good Wallaby trying to keep you calm--I'm sure flinging the toy off the desk was another of his ploys to keep your mind off of the bad stuff! Luv&HugsBack~Deb

thrilled to bits to have gotten landline phone service back yesterday...i'm frankly relieved that your son and my cousin & aunt were all ok...at the moment...i'm really upset about events in Boston....Wallaby's tryin to keep me calm by sleeping right next to me ....gotta go find the toy he just flung off the desk...luv & hugs kat

If we're not 'pussovers' then we're not doing a good job with our kids! Millie is such a stinker! Gives no licks, bonks, or cuddles, but wants, wants, wants from me. I can't believe that there is still 'recovery' needed after ALL these months. 'Course, I'm sure you would consider yourself lucky in comparison to Staten Is., Queens, NJ, etc. But just half-way up the island, the power didn't even flicker. I'm thankful for that for my son, but I have guilty feelings for you having had such a hard time. I'm sure everyone in your bldg. dearly loves 'Fred'! Hugs & Blessings to You! Deb

Wallaby is thrilled to have you on his defense team...he figured out that I was going to be a real "pussover" while were meeting at the shelter...I have a new definition of "normal"...My land line phone is just being reactivated tomorrow...we've actually named the temporary portable boiler hooked up to our building...we call it "Fred" Warmest wishes, Kat
By venusdemilo on Apr 14, 2013 at 3:23 PM
Wallaby is just being a CAT! He can't help himself--maybe a nap is a good idea! Hope you're doing very well & that things are becoming normal!
By venusdemilo on Mar 20, 2013 at 8:43 PM
Why thank you, my dear! I hope it will turn out to be that! Good to hear from you & hope things have been going well with you & Wallaby! And just as I typed that I see to the side that Daisy says you lost your favorite cousin! I am SO terribly sorry & pray that God will give you comfort & peace! Hugs! Deb

Major PURRIN for "pickin up dinner on da wai home frum werk:" It's got to become a classic around here. warm & fuzzy regards, kat.
By venusdemilo on Jan 18, 2013 at 4:02 PM
No--I got you, but just got carried about 30 yrs. down the road!--in the wrong direction! Sorry! See you 'in the snow'! WARM hugs for sure! Deb
By katkabob on Jan 17, 2013 at 4:14 PM
K.I think we got some wires crossed....no one need do anything here...just relax, have fun and purr a lot. warm & fuzzy hugs kat
By venusdemilo on Jan 17, 2013 at 1:38 PM
Need to get off here for a while, but if there is something that you can EXPLAIN to me, I'll be glad to help! Later, dear!

OMGoodness--was it that your family just had the 'old manual typewriter' at home or as in MY case, 'WE' learned to type on the 'fairly up-to-date' Royal Manual typewriters. However, there were electric typewriters used ONLY by those taking 2nd yr. typing. That is SO true what you say, though. Jeff (there in NYC) was a smartie-pants & could do anything. Made a Parthenon that was FABULOUS while still in elementary school, & not only didn't ask for help, but would have pitched a fit if anyone offered. BUT he did love to try to help his younger (& less intelligent, he thought, brother) with his homework. I'd be in the kitchen & I'd hear Keith scream "MOMMA--Tell Jeff to quit helping me with MY homework!". Never a dull moment back then!

Not to worry....I was figuring on somebody (could be me) doing an LOL announcin the "winnaz & their gormet meal"....the activity is one of those designed to build team spirit ...so some LOLs with skolars disagreeing on where to look or other team issues could also be worked in....also the thing I luv MOZTEZT here iz the fact that my really bad spelling works FOR me....
By katkabob on Jan 17, 2013 at 1:24 PM
bout havin to be "right on their butts DOING THE WORK"...reminds me of a business team lunch a while back...several of the working moms started comparing notes about projects (science & other subjects) that they had "helped" their kids out with....my own boss probably wenta tad too far when she announced "and I got an A+" My parents just didn't do that...and at the time it ticked me off because my classmates parents would type up their reports etc...Once my dad caved in and did type a report for me because I was making too much noise on our old manual typewriter too late at night....but I really don't resent their lack of "doing it for me" now because as a corporate trainer I know that you only really learn to something by DOING IT YOURSELF.....
By venusdemilo on Jan 17, 2013 at 1:22 PM
UUUUUUUhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! No! I was trying my best to explain what I thought you meant we'd have to be doing. A GREAT idea? You came up with the original--I'm just trying to figure out if it was "just" an Lol or if there would be other Lols with these items. Remember I'm not that 'smart' with puters & I don't know how the pics could be made without some kind of major majic--see you got me so upset, I can't spell magic! LOL! LUV U, too--EVEN if you do put me to work!
By katkabob on Jan 17, 2013 at 1:15 PM
LOLS with these things that kids can find? K help me (my brain is clogged with antihistimine) it sounds like a great idea ...could you give a sample ???? LUV YA
By venusdemilo on Jan 17, 2013 at 1:12 PM
Seriously though, are there gonna be Lols with these things that 'our kids' find & make Lols of them finding them? Did that make any sense at all?
By venusdemilo on Jan 17, 2013 at 1:11 PM
Well you know how it is with these over energized kids--we have to be right on their butts ACTUALLY doing the work!
By katkabob on Jan 17, 2013 at 1:08 PM
well...my original thawt waz dat r ova enerjized skolarz wud be findin em and that the "resort waz pre-planting them"...i had enuff truble finkin em up...but heh, i can b flexible...
By venusdemilo on Jan 17, 2013 at 1:04 PM
And are WE supposed to find these "skavenjas"?
By katkabob on Jan 15, 2013 at 6:03 PM
sorry, I lost u on "savin em both" ...if you want help with that let me know...i do get carried away trying to share too much info a lot... luv & hugs kat
By venusdemilo on Jan 15, 2013 at 12:57 PM
I'm glad I was just the inspiration & not needed for any instructions. You lost me at " I saved them both . . ." At least you have a profile name that isn't either of your babies, so that works great!
By katkabob on Jan 12, 2013 at 6:57 PM
You inspired that avatar change. when you first saw that photo...I really wanted to use Wallaby's picture but didn't want to remove Guthrie's ....my brain seems to function best when I'm really tired...(probably no emotional static gets through)...it took a while to figure out how to get both photos on. I saved them both on a PowerPoint slide in the position I wanted them, cropped the rest of the slide off, and had to make several tries before getting it the size that I wanted....I'm using Microsoft XP and needed to save in an older version of PowerPoint ('95-97) in ordefr to have that "jpeg" option that ICHC will accept.
By venusdemilo on Jan 3, 2013 at 7:34 PM
So you did change your profile pic--and I love how you did it! That is truly special!! And you finally gave some info on yourself. Indoor camping skills--"not fun", for sure. I did it only one week during the "Storm of the Century" in 1993! As did Scarlett O'Hara, I 'swore I'd never be COLD again'! Hopefully (prayerfully!) never THAT cold again! Hugs!
By venusdemilo on Dec 31, 2012 at 12:17 PM
Well, thank you & I'm sure 'her Daddy' thanks you. There again is that remarkable attitude of yours, but I'm sure after knowing about Staton Island, Breezy Point, etc., one would consider themselves blessed. Just wish you'd had it as easy as my son. But boy, had I been doing a lot of praying. Best of All to you in 2013!
By katkabob on Dec 31, 2012 at 12:04 PM
Velvet iz a knockowt as in WOW....Wallaby is sleepin off his lunch and I'm sure will be "furrcinated" wiff Velvet's picture when he wakes up....Thank you so much for all your warm wishes....when I see what others have gone through and are still going through....I realize how blessed I was/am....warm & snuggle thoughts for a wonder New Year.. kat
