Casa de Chaos

Humans make plans...Universe Has Right of Refusal-with-Laughter.

Rate this Entry
Without preamble, because I'm tired, have sinus meds shutting my brain down, nd am desperate for sleep this house really lives up to it's name now.
One dog, shortly after we adopted Eydi, a 135 Lb Timbersheepherd-Husky cross who acts like a self-appointed nanny-minder with kittens. His name is Achilles, name inspired as out neighbour's dog is named Hector, and they're best-buddies.
The Lynx babycat we wanted...
We got TWO baby Lynx, not one.
Skadi was the Boss of the litter and bonded with/looked out for the 'runt'...Artemis.
There was concern about splitting them up, so we dug out some $$ to cover travel expenses and two baby Lynx arrived.
To be Insta-Dopted by Georgina.
There was some worry with Artemis, but a Dedicated MommaLyx, who had started lactating for Eydis, made all the difference and Artemis quickly caught up to and Paced her sister in growth and such.
Both our baby Lynxies are now well into the 50+ Lb range, and absoluteely healthy--spoiled somewhat also.

Then along came Ulysses, an ex-streetcat who has NO issues with being an Indoor cat. He's missing most of an ear, an eye, has a (much improved) limping back leg, missing most of his tail, covered in old scars under his fur...and is a total sweetheart, often referred to as 'Marshmallow Cat'. He's the most un-demanding cat there is, he's just happy to have Nomz, laps and loves.
He gets plenty.

And a little while back... MK, aka 'Mouse Killer'--as he has such a dedication to battling computer mice.

8 Cats
1 Psychotic Kitten
1 Vastly outnumbered Dog who's just fine with the situation, and frequently ends up snoozing with kittiehz snuggled around and on top of him.

Next update I'll speak about the fact that there's rescued Hoomans now residing her, but I want to clear it all with them first--iz just Manners, right?
It' just a bloody good thing hubby bought this house and not the smaller one he had considered.

    Would love to find out Ulysses back story. From your physical description of him, it seems he's led an interesting life on the streets. Then, to maintain his sweetheartedness... well, it just sounds like a story worth hearing.

    We did manage to piece a picture together with some legwork.
    Basically in an area of town extreme-opposite from us, he was considered something of a 'Nuisance'. Poking around and asking questions, we found a couple of people who knew him and were kind to him occasionally.
    We also found out details about some of his injuries.
    EG: his rear leg was injured when some teens were throwing chunks of concrete at him from a building demolition, for 'sport'. The Vet figures the ear & eye were lost in cat-fights. The tail was 'blunt-force-sheared' and it's suspected a door was the cause, likely when he was 1/2-grown. The assorted scars and small-scale but numerous bone injury evidence seen on x-ray also point to abuse.
    Best guess is he's 3 years old.

    Wanda, my 'Twin' (I'll cover that & her later) brought him home after saving him from some svolochs who were goading dogs into attacking him in an enclosed area, for fun and making bets on how long he'd last.
    Turned out, he wasn't the first stray they'd done that to--but he was the last.

    So, he spent a day at the Vet's getting checked over, bathed, etc.. and then came Home.
    The 'swarm' were VERY curious, but Georgina accepted him right away. With his adoption by her, well, that sealed his acceptance here. She does kinda 'Mom' him, like grooming his ears, especially his ear-stub.
    He was VERY thin when he came here, long since corrected, and last Vet checkup, along with the rest, he passed A-OK.
    In any event, he is Home now, it just took him a while to find his way here.

    it sure Looks like you Have a House Full ...
    That Last Time we Talked you only Had about 4 cats, a dawg, and 4 Fillies... Now It sounds Like you have Full House of Critters both 2 and 4 legged...
    Hope You are able to Maintain some Level of Sanity.

    I have Completed my move to The High Country North and East Of "Winston-Salem" NC. and started the Reconstructive surgeries need to fix the Warn out Knees and Ankle ... Right Knee done and in 2 weeks the Left Ankle is going to be replaced... and some time in the middle of the summer the Left Knee Is going to be replaced...
    its a world of difference just 2 1/2 months after surgery in walking and getting around...

    Tell the Clan I said Hey and wish them well especially Martin ... I know He is Living In a world of Confusion... LOL
    Take care Up There...

    Life makes it's OWN plans for us all, but we have no complaints.
    Things are actually pretty sane, well...overall-average. The girls we accepted in, well, if we hadn't done so they would not be safe, healthy, nor alive in some cases. Some came from some damned bad situations through the doings of others.
    Some like Julia & Anya are working on sharpening their skills with English (both are from Russia)
    I am glad we chose to take them in, they're good people, they've benefitted, as has our house.
    And, with this many eyes/ears...one hell of a burglar deterrent.

    Greetings and such relayed, and the same in-kind to you from all of us, especially Husband as he can fully appreciate leg/knee surgery from his own experiences, and it's SO good to hear your mobility will be restored!!

    We'll take care, so don't worry about us one bit.
    All of us hope and pray your surgeries are simple, recovery is quick and full, so you can enjoy your restored mobility the sooner and better!!
