How's your day?

There was..Possibly still is.. a small contingent of the 'audiophile' lunatic fringe who prefer to connect their kit to the mains via round pin plugs and sockets. Apparently the increased area of contect 'improves' the mains and makes the kit sound better....:rolleyes:

Jill, had to run errands yesterday, horrendous! The steering wheel was so hot I couldn't put my hands it. It's a joke here,  well I thought it was, to keep oven gloves in your car. I am going to do it. There was a breeze yesterday so it now felt like being in a fan assisted oven.Where's me white flag?  I surrender. I whine, but then I pass the road construction crew working in this heat, along with the postie, trash men etc, and really I should shut up.

Due to the vagaries of the weather this year our meadow yielded only eight bales of hay. In other years we’ve had two hundred. I gather the hay crop is generally bad this year. Not a problem for us as the only animals we now have are four cats and they will not eat hay!

Hay?  What's that?

 

Are you going to open a tin of Gourmet or am I going to pack my spotted hanky and leave home?

 

Current favourite is Gourmet Melting Heart. Pate with a sauce centre. We like it this week. Next week, it will be the worst thing since cheapo Kit E Kat!

The 1911 census refers to Letter Carriers. Not so very different.

We’re not only ones whose cats have fickle eating habits then?

When we were first married and lived on Burford Road, Forest Fields, we had a cat who regularly had fresh cod steaks or tinned salmon. I could come home and find the cat with salmon and me with potted meat sandwiches!

Our cats are mother and son but they have very different food preferences...Button (mother) likes wer food - well she likes  the sauce or gravy in the pouches; she often doesn't eat all the 'flakes', whereas Zippy (son) won't touch commercial wet cat food at all.  

They both like cheap frozen white fish from the Supermarket, which I microwave and cheapest tinned tuna.    They both  eat dry food when desperate.

They also like chewing up birds and voles but don't think they eat much of them!  

I do love  cats but I wish they wouldn't do that

Oh yes, we like the gravy but not the chunks! We also like granary breadcrumbs! :blink:  yogurt and anything mum's eating, even though it's vegetarian.

 

We like biscuits but they have to be IAMS!  We like Dreamies!!!! This week. Next week, who knows!

We also had a Yorkshire terrier who had a penchant for yoghurt. Trouble was, he would only eat it from a spoon.

I blame 'er indoors for that.

Both our dogs love a saucer of yoghurt each afternoon around three p.m.  Jake wolfs it down in two gulps and will go after Bailey's if he can.  We have to keep 'em apart.  Bailey has much more genteel manners and likes to savour each lick.

Hiya Loppy, it wouldn't be so bad if he would have a saucer full, but the silly mutt wouldn't touch it unless he was spoonfed. He were fine with everything else. He lived to the ripe old age of 19, then alas the big C beat him and he had to be euthanized because he wouldn't have survived the surgery. Great dog though !

He could pull my son along when he was tied to his wheelchair!

Sounds like the yoghurt kept him going.  Mine seem to thrive on it.  You can't even say the word around our place or they turn up, tails wagging, tongues hanging out.

Well.. while you lot were pandering to a load of entitled.. over priveleged animals..:dry:

I have finally finished wiring in a new  power socket .. with additional USB outlets.  A job which would have taken a qualified 'Sparks' a couple of hours, .. took me a lot longer.  But it works.. :biggrin:

For UK/EU based folks.. I can recommend 'FAGE', pronounced 'Fayeh' yoghurts.  They are 'Greek Style' and available in low fat and 5% versions in 500g or 1Kg tubs.

 

I like to have mine with a handful of Blueberries and the merest hint of Honey.  :)

 

Dogs may have different tastes.

Us two have been eating Greek yoghurt for ages and ages. Don't forget to polish your power point now you've installed it. :rolleyes:

Fage yoghurt is good and so is the yoghurt cake made with it.. 

A few years ago our dog Max was having feeding problems. He wouldn't touch his usual food and the only thing he ate voluntarily was yogurt. We took him to the vet after a few days and told her that the only thing he would eat was yogurt. She looked at me as though I'd said he only eats bird seed. " yogurt?" she repeated and I could tell she didn't believe me. She'd never heard of dogs eating such a thing. Even now when I'm eating it all the dogs love to lick the carton out and carry on licking even when there's non left. We no longer go to that vet.:victory:

We once had a German Shepherd called Tess, she had stomach problems and would have bouts of an upset stomach which used to gurgle and make the most perspiration noises. There is a name for it, something German Shepherds get, it just flared up every so often. When it did we had trouble getting her to eat anything at all but she needed to because this settled the condition down quicker. We found she would eventually have chicken soup (Heinz of course) and this would settle her stomach down.

We once saw an elderly vet when our usual vet was on holiday and Tess had diarrhoea. He didn’t give us anything just told us to starve her for a full day just water, but not cold water, then the second day nothing all day just a bit of yogurt at night. The third day yogurt and plain ice cream (he said the yogurt coated the stomach and the ice cream cooled it down), obviously not on the same dish. By this time she was so hungry she would have eaten anything. Next day the same but a bit of  bland food and then gradually bring her normal food back into her diet. Surprisingly it worked.

All the dogs I have had reacted very badly to yoghurt - producing very large amounts of liquid which should have been solid (if you follow).

I let the chickens out for the first time yesterday. they were very tentative at first and kept going back into the wired run. They gradually built up confidence and foraged around, keeping close to their home. One of the cats attacked but put his brakes on when he realised how big several hens could become when startled. Then the other cat stalked up menacingly to the two Aurucanas, who stood their ground and stared him down. The cat sort of shrugged and stalked off with that bored look that only a cat can do. They returned to the coop without a problem, lured by some maggots left over from fishing.  Today they were far more confident when let out and followed me around the garden. Lovely creatures and quite funny.
