Its about time I got around to this. I have pets, lots of pets and I take pictures lots of pictures, but I rarely post any of them. So I intend to remedy that. Today through Sunday I'll attempt to post pictures of every critter I have, barring the fish.

Critters, I haz dem. )

So that still leaves all six of the birds, the guinea pig and the dog that is to come.

EDIT: Added Oreo and made the photos into clickable thumbnails to keep the pics from playing merry hell with my monitor.

Poorly made play gyms suck. Cats who leap on poorly made play gyms, sending them crashing to the ground and breaking them? Those suck too.

Lovvies that prefer that their gym be unusable because it means that 100% of their "out time" is "on people" time? WIN.

I'm still gonna fix it tho.

Well, that was a new experience. I just had a thread locked for being snarky. The funny thing? I wasn't being snarky, I was dead serious.

Edit: Well, not so much dead serious as the same "gentle ribbing" sense of humor that I've always used, must've poked the wrong peep. At the very least its lead me to the discovery that I apparently don't mix well with militant anything.

I heard from an old friend today! Whoo!

I'm back to actually listening to my filk/folk/new age music, instead of skipping past most of it. So now its time to go through itunes and adjust my playlists to reflect this.

My keets are purple. I gave them a purple mineral block(couldn't find any plain ones) figuring that they'd use it if they needed it. Well apparently they got bored, because it went from an entire block to less than half a block in about two days, purple powder is everywhere; Sprite's pretty yellow face is now orange, and Pictsie who was a blue and white, is now a purple-faced blue and white.

I should probably do something about AOL too. When the DSL kept going up and down AOL kept trying to sign on (I'd love to figure out how to keep AOL from signing itself on all the time) anyways, by the time the DSL was back up AOL would open itself up, try to sign on, and then tell me it was terribly sorry, but it could no longer connect to the internet. I ran the reinstaller, and was told by gran that it still wouldn't work even after she uninstalled/reinstalled it. So now I get to run SysMech and yank it out entirely. XD The only bad thing is that afterwards I need to REinstall it. Bomb it from orbit, tra-la-la!

I'm home! Holy Flying Spaghetti Monster I'm home at last!

Where I was and what I did. )

The birds burst into noise the second we walked into the house, even the parakeets. Kali kept giving me "where the FUCK were you all this time?" looks. Ginger is at the "I miiiiissed you" petmepetmepetme stage. While the ever regal Abby went the "Oh? You're home already? Well if you insist I'll allow you to scratch my head" route. The bunny Gizmo seems to have grown by a third of her previous size.

We're going to pick Cosmo up from the petshop sometime tomorrow. I missed him so much! I hope he doesn't try to bite my nose this time.

Everyone is still alive! You did a marvelous job LBC!

I fixed it! I had to jiggle a wire, but I am currently blur-less!

I fell asleep before I did the pkunk thing. I'll try to get it done tonight. Hey LBC, do ya think pkunk with a coffee buzz is worth a try?

Ginger has been playing Ninja, running up behind me to grasp my leg or bite my foot. Callie is about a week away from completely killing her feather duster. Abby has gone from hyper affectionate to only demanding one petting today.

Gismo has been eating well. Cosmo still doesn't like stepping up from his cage, but he will step up from my hand or my lap. Ricky snatched his ball out of my hand and put it right back into his water dish when I tried to take it out. Lucy is swinging from her toy like an acrobat. While Zelnick was IS playing birdy soccer with his ball on the floor of his cage.

Had to go clothes shopping today with my grandmother. Why in the hell she thought the clothes in Catherine's would fit me I'll never know, they fit her and she's twice my size. :P But I did manage to get a skirt in the last shop we hit, with the right top and Cosmo on my shoulder I'd look like a pirate.

Cosmo has a new cage now, his last one was better suited for a slightly larger parrot. Now I just need to get him a Boing and replace the washers holding up his heavier perches he'll be all set for his time at bird-camp. Which reminds me that I really need to start writing LBC's Guide to Watching Pets. Fuck it I'll do it now.

Rule 1. If anybody dies, put them in a plastic bag and stick 'em in the freezer then call me.

2. The cats take care of themselves. I'll fill the feeder/waterer and change the potty boxes out before I leave. If you feel like scooping the catbox in the bathroom while you're watching them they'll love you forever, but I won't require it.

3. The bird water needs to be changed every day, they like to make soup in their water dishes with their kibble. Keep their kibble bowl full and I'll show you how to refill the backup water and seed dispensers before I go. Also, if you find that Ricky put his ball in his water dish just rinse it off and put it back in his cage.

4. Don't let the cats stay in the bird room. If its Kali that won't leave shake the new canister of catnip in her direction and give her enough to get really plastered. If its Ginger, shrimp. If its abby, go sit in the living room and pet the other two.

5. Play with the babies, but Ricky should be taken out separately from Zelnick and Lucy as they pick on him.

6. Feed the fish about 3-5 fish kibbles when you remember and don't panic if you skip a day or two. Feed the turtle, I don't want to come home to an angry turtle.

7. We have a bunny cage on the way and Gizmo already knows how to use the waterer. Play with the bunny, we want to keep it tame yes? Keep the bowl and waterer at least 3/4ths full.

8. I'll be cleaning everyone's cage/tank/bowl/box before I go, so they should be okay for the first day.

9. Try to come over at various times. I don't want the maintenance people to realize we're gone, as I don't trust them and I'm rather fond of my possessions. If they ask why you're over so much, spin a tale about writing a collaborative Tentacle Porn fanfic. Use graphic phrases and smile like you do when you find a new Yaoi manga.

Anything underlined is extremely important. I think I've covered everything. If anything goes awry call me immediately(use the phone at my place so you don't rack up a bill). Is that all? I hope thats all.

Its that time again! I'm going to organize/backup/cull my music files. Anyone want to rummage through my playlist? lookin at 'choo LBC

Found out last week that both Cosmo and Zelnick are probably females. Since I don't have a genetic test or an egg to back it up I'll probably keep referring to them as males.

Oh, and I seem to have acquired a sudden addiction to orange soda.
ann_tiger: ('sup bitches?)
Going to the beach again. I'd rather stay home with the critters. The lovebirds are climbing over my hands and the keyboard, making it very hard to type. And zelnick pooped on m y hand, Lucy just bit me amd Riki is t r ying to eat the M.

Cosmo!
