Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Critter Lives Matter

Beloved Cat,

Lying on her side mouth agape. Wheezing, coughing, choking and dying. Only reason I'm awake.She's going to die, Mom is no more a stranger to it than I am. But it sucks and I'll be awake for that last gasp.

Papa cat and his two uneaten offspring are fine and good. Mom's favored kid, if this critter drops? I've been taking shit for tending to our outdoor friend with a bite or BB on his front right leg. Small hole, big wound. No preference in the kids.

I can't believe at 82 that Mom doesn't know that? I love them all, that interact. Pic from 2011. Girlcat, minus "hubby" but kids. Good run. Real good run!

I'll miss this rude, nasty beast of 10 lbs. She enjoyed and understood love. She expressed such one or twice... Enough to beat stir fry...

Damn cat died while typing earlier. Not a huge loss. But a loss. I liked her.

It hurts to lose anything that you love

But at least you know her suffering is over

Sucks to lose a critter.

Like my dang turkey. He needs butchered, and is getting mean, but he and I rassled yesterday and he learned I'm still the boss, so now he's not trying to attack me anymore.

Just a dumb turkey that should have been butchered months ago.

Levity is the right attitude!! I need to raise some turkeys, it sounds like fun!

And thanks guys!

Been through it many times but this was pretty unexpected. Threw a loop in my night. She was my Mom's "special cat", $40/month special in canned food only, LOL! I was responsible for the adoption, long story. Still have two healthy offspring and their father that ended up being adopted indoors after a head-end collision at highway speed...Ol' Mama Cat was a nasty boss but it was fun if that makes any sense? The father cat will be Mom's new best friend once he realizes he's allowed in her bedroom again. 20+ pound sweetheart. I tease him that he's going to grow chicken feathers, too meek for his size.

I'll tell ya, Mom screaming for help in the wee hours scared me alot more than the kitty episode. Country living taught me that furry friends come and go. Mom's a country girl. Depression WWII country girl but she was out of it and asked "what do I do?". My simple hillbilly answer was we pet her, brush her, talk to her and ease her along. Proven technique and it worked like it always has. She'll be down for awhile but we had a good birthday weekend celebrating her 82nd with carnival food treats and cook-out goodies. Lots of cards and calls, and planters full of flowers of various sorts from me.

Time marches on...
