              • morning guys - why does Gwamma have so much DRAMA in her life ????? Is it because she attracts DRAMA, enjoys DRAMA, or does it just come knocking at her place ???????

                ...................so here is the thing.......... Gwamma is minding her own business mowing the lawns - when she spies this tiny cute little black kitten sitting on a big pile of grass clippings. It was obviously warm. So I caught the wee wild thing, brought it inside and fed it milk and meat. Anyhow the wee thing was very thin and had some awful little injuries. I am thinking hit by a car ???????
                So I nurse the wee thing through the night....and finally at about 1am it succumbed. Which is really a blessing because it really was quite a sick little thing. So now I am all upset, have swollen obviously infected kitten bites on my hands and thinking what could I have done differently to keep the wee thing alive................the joys of being Gwamma !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                • Aw, Gwamma, you did the best for it. You re-hydrated with the milk and fed the little thing it's favorite food - meat. I don't think the kitten would have survived as long as it did if you hadn't intervened. You have a kind soul.

                  Now, as to those bites. My mom would blow up like a balloon if her cat got her good with either a scratch or a bite. I always trained my cats to "not bite mommy," but even as they were learning, I occasionally got some broken skin. My reactions are just a little swelling which goes away in a few days. However, I might see a doc if you're in the least concerned only because you're getting ready to travel pretty soon. Wouldn't want you looking like a swollen tick on your Alaskan cruise!

                  • haha - I agree J. I am on Fluclox for school sores !!!!!!!! all over my bloody face - yay for Gwamma - and yes another drama !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                    ..so me is thinking that these particular anti buggars will deal to the wee infection !!!!!!! However Gwamma has been known in the past to get very sick very quick, after having 5 or so cases of cellulitus, and a couple of blood infections over the years. So I will monitor said finger very well !!!!!!!!
                    The old school sores - impetigo - are insidious little suckers !!!!!!!!!! I kid you not !!!!!!!!

                      i got bitten by my old cat when i picked him up and he had an epileptic fit. he didnt mean to, he just bit my finger. bit deep nasty bite. i let it bleed and took 30g of sodium ascorbate. i covered it during the day and left it open at night. kept up the SA. 5g 3x a day. it got better and never puffed up. he was my old ocicat who had homed when i lived in auckland and had moved. made it over the harbour bridge back to my old house. it took him 7 years. so he had all sorts of feline issues. personally, i would have poss gritted my teeth and shot the kitten. i've shot half paralysed live rabbits that have been hit by cars. i absolutely hate doing it but it is my issue not theirs and i have to get over it.

                      i got impetigo once. i never had an anti biotics but lavender oil was what worked. tea tree didnt touch it. hopefully you will be better soon. and yes, watch the finger. we make a hole in a lemon and stick the finger in there for a good half hour too.

                      • dont know what it is doing weatherwise in the rest of NZ but i am gonna have to get the dinghy out soon LOL the roof is leaking and hitting the wood burner making these loud hissing noises. thankfully it is too wet to have any duck shooter out. either that or the wind and the rain are too noisy to hear them. i am gonna have to go out and move the horse so ican open the gates soon as the kids will be coming home and we are going out to tea.

                        • Not so bad up here now. Have had torrential rain and thunder storms the last couple if days. The drain in front if the house got blocked and was flooding the garage yesterday, so I got drenched unblocking it. Had to shove about ten feet if hose down it a few times to clear the blockage.

                          Had a brief heavy downpour earlier today, but not too bad.

                          Hope your leak doesn't get worse Seas!

                          • it's been there as long as i've had the house so i think it is just one of those things. heavy rain and wind. it will be ok. it is incredibly torrential rain. i just moved the horse and got soaked even tho i had my hunting jacket on.

                            • Yeah, we've had water dripping through a light fitting once that's never happened again. It just seemed to happen in heavy rain and a really strong wind from an unusual direction.
