Respite Open Thread: There Are Good People

Sometimes we just need a reminder. Adam asked me to post this as his day got away from him. I’m more than happy to do it.

If you need an uplifting read to end your day, the comments in this thread are renewing. (You don’t need have a twitter account to read them).

    Hey everyone. Been away for a bit. Took an Internet break, etc. My brother found a kitten while walking his dogs tonight. He took it in, fed it, and now has it in his bathroom. If there is anyone who wants a kitteh in the Charlotte NC area, please speak up. Totally black kitteh.

    Is anybody else having trouble posting links? Both of last comments have been eaten. Didn’t even show up in moderation. Weird.

    Question for you, TaMara….I remember some months ago you mentioned treating your aging kitty with CBD (oil or tincture?). My older kitty might benefit from CBD. If you have time to share your research into dosage, etc, I would really appreciate it. Miss Pearl doesn’t do treats or wet food, so I’m also curious how your kitty takes it in.

    @BeautifulPlumage: I saw it mentioned (somewhere) in the last day or so. It’s great. :-)

    “Red or Blue”
    “I’ll take both!”

    @HumboldtBlue: Wow.

    I have to say that I’ve never seen the full film. I need to remedy that.

    Thanks very much.

    @BeautifulPlumage: I do a full spectrum CBD oil, and the woman who preps it locally, sells online, too. Another Jackal just order some from her.

    It’s been interesting dosing her. She gets 10 drops once a day. The first couple of times it was difficult, but now she wants it, so even though I have to pick her up and pry open her mouth, she takes it easily. And I have been giving it to Gabe – and the same thing – the first couple of times it was difficult, but now he takes it easily.

    It’s in a sunflower oil base, and I give it by dropper.

    Go ahead and email me if you want more info. It has really helped Emma, her fur is beautiful again and she has fewer pancreatitis attacks.

    @TaMara (HFG): Thank you!

    I was hoping to get it locally in WA state since my fave retail store has one product for animals. I appreciate the info and will email.

    As for Miss Pearl, she’s been with me since her kittenhood and, at 15, is still very sure she doesn’t like being picked up and IS NOT A LAP CAT MEOW DAMMIT HISS YOU ALL TO HELL

    Well, that twitter thread was both sad and uplifting at the same time. I’m way too old and the wrong type, but so many people were responding with such uplifting encouragement.

    Thanks for providing such an old fashioned good group of people to see, very uplifting to see such good people, generous and giving for a little tyke they don’t even know yet. So sweet. Tears.
