RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. The Super Bowl is history and Cam Newton was handed a large piece of humble pie. I have never been a fan of Cam Newton, don't care for his on field displays showing he still has a lot to learn about true leadership and true sportsmanship. That beings said let's move on. Izzie is really doing well. I am so glad he has made such an improvement. Now to continue to watch him and make sure he doesn't get in that condition again. Suzie, Hobo and Peaches are well. With the cold morning they don't stay outside too long before wanting back inside. We are going to see some very cold weather for us Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the thirty's. This coming weekend we plan to go to Calhoun Falls State Park. This is a beautiful state park located on lake Russell that borders Georgia and South Carolina. This is a local favorite for campers and fishermen. Back in the day when I had a bass boat Scott and I used to fish in the lake. Back then the lake was fairly new and when the lake was built the engineers planned fish parlors. Fish parlors are where the timber was left standing in a cove with a path around the edge so a boat could go through and fish the interior of the cove. We caught a lot of Small Mouth bass and a lot of Bream in that lake. Scott posted a picture of his truck hooked to a Sunny Brook 5th wheel camper on Face Book. I thought he had bought a camper but it was his mother and his step dad that bought the trailer, Scott just pulled it home for them. Says he will use it on occasion as he will allow them to use his truck to tow with. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is 35* here this morning and very cloudy. Super Bowl Sunday and the Carolina Panthers are playing the Denver Broncos. May the best team win, how's that for being politically correct? Izzie is doing great. He has really recovered from whatever was wrong. He is eating wet food and drinking plenty of water. He met me this morning in the bathroom telling me all about his night. The girls are doing well and Sue is doing great also. It is hard to believe we have been married for twenty seven years. Time flies when you are having fun. Okay I need to get moving so I will wish you a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: OLD FELLA RALLY OCTOBER 10-17, 2016

If you haven't been to Sevierville, Tennessee for a while you should come and see the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and have fun with the folks at the Old Fella Rally. This will be our third year gathering at Riverside RV Resort and campground. This is an exceptional campground with plenty of space and lots to see in the area. Bring your motorhome, travel trailer whatever and join us for fun and fellowship, you'll be glad you did.

RE: Dogs in 5th wheel towing

When we switched from a 5er to a motorhome our three dogs freaked out. It took a while for them to adjust to the ride and noise of the motorhome. We put a baby gate between us and the dogs to keep them from getting under our feet as we traveled. Your situation is different in that the 5er should be relatively quieter inside compared to the motorhome. You have made adjustments to accommodate the comfort and safety of your dog. Go with it and see how it works out.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. We had a wonderful day yesterday. Last evening we went to J Peters in Fountain Inn to celebrate our anniversary. We had most of the family with us. Scott and Robin and Billy live far away so they couldn't make it. Izzie continues to do well. Sue and I are going to get firewood this morning to finish out the winter with this last load. Suzie, Hobo and Peaches are well. I noticed Suzie has a lot of white or gray hair under her chin. I am not ready for her to grow old. She and Izzie are a part of a legacy of Old Fella. Dan and Lori have Anna and Sarah which are a part of the legacy also. I have lost count of the others, there are so many that passed through our lives I can't remember them all. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Well Izzie sure feels better. He was up this morning greeting me when I got up and jumped into bed with Sue. However there wasn't any poop in the box when Sue checked it. He is eating wet food along with dry food and Sue is putting coconut oil on his paw and nose. I guess by Sunday we will know if he is not able to move his bowels. It is a beautiful morning here with clear skies and lots and lots of sunshine. The girls are doing well. Got a report from Joshua yesterday there had been an accident with Buddy and Rex. It seems Joshua was play fetch with the two boys in the back yard when there was a hard collision between the two. Rex lost both of his lower canine teeth, while Buddy escaped unharmed. Josh took Rex to the Vet in Durham, NC but the news was both the lower canines are gone and he will most likely have his tongue hanging out the side of his mouth the rest of his life. I hope all is well with everyone and the weather isn't too bad where you are. We will be looking at some cold weather for the next few days. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Izzie is doing so much better, He is back to his old self. Thanks for all the advice concerning his bowels. The coconut oil was handy since we already had some in the house. Today I will pick up some wet food to see if I can find any to his liking. This morning I treated myself to a nice breakfast with blueberry pancakes with Maple syrup, coffee, beacon, and orange juice. Tomorrow Sue and I celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary. We are planning and evening with the kids at a popular restaurant in Simpsonville. According to the weatherman we can expect winter to come back to us the rest of the week. Below freezing at night with temps in the upper forty's. It won't be long before we start to see a warming trend. Robins have been visiting us in flocks so I expect the weather to turn spring like in a few weeks. Suzie came back inside this morning telling me all about her adventures in the back yard. She was tossing her head about as she made those guttural sounds. She really believes she is talking in a language I can understand, and sometimes I do. Yesterday with all the rain Peaches had an accident in the house. Suzie was the first to tell. You should have seen her getting all over Peaches and Peaches just hanging her head in shame when I approached her to ask her what she had done. At fourteen years old, soon to be fifteen I can't fuss at her too much. I am reminded of myself in how my bladder controls my day trips, any outings as I am afraid to get too far from the pot. When we travel the always asked question is, "How far to the next rest stop?" I am so glad Izzie is doing well. He is so much a part of the Old Fella legacy as well as Suzie. In June Suzie will turn ten along with her sister Anna. Dan and Lori have done a great job taking care of her and giving her a good home. Sarah also has benefited from their care. It is nice to know both girls travel with them as family. We will be seeing them soon as they make their way South in a few weeks. Dan has to give that new truck a good workout so he will know what he has. I am sure it will do well. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Izzie is much better. I am concerned about his stool however. They are very firm and small pellets. He only eats dry food but I told Sue as we age our digestive system changes and perhaps this is what is going on with Izzie. We will try him on wet food to see if he will eat it. Sue came up with the idea of putting Vaseline on his nose. She says he will lick it off and then it will lubricate his digestive system. Never heard of this has anyone else? Anyway this morning he was at the water bowl when I got up. This is what he does early in the morning when he is feeling good. He is eating his dry food and drinking water and being social. The weather here is raining and warm. It is 64 degrees outside and we are expecting thunder storms today. Sue and I have a camping trip planned for the weekend of the 12th. Our plan is to go to Calhoun Falls, which is about 60 miles away on Lake Russell on the Carolina side of the lake. Peaches, Hobo and Suzie are well. Suzie is such a sweetheart and so full of energy. At nine years old she is doing great. This June she will turn ten years old. It doesn't seem that it has been that long since she was rescued along with Anna, Dixie and Savannah. I thank Mrs. Barnes for making the call that lead to their rescue and her and her husband helping in the effort. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Izzie is doing much better this morning. He wanted outside with the girls, so he was let out so he could look over his back yard Kingdom. He used the litter box and ate this morning. Lilly went home last night as her folks came home. She knew the minute they pulled into the driveway. I got her stuff ready, the Lion bed, her bowl and food. She took possession of the bed the minute it hit the floor, this is mine and don't come near it, she glared at Suzie, Hobo and Peaches. She loves her Lion King dog bed, it is so cute, I love it. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Izzie is home and acts as if he is feeling better.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Izzie is coming home. The doctor called and said they gave Izzie an enema and the stool that came out was very hard and big. The X-ray indicated there was a kink in the intestine and it was full of feces He had hoped by giving Izzie the enema he would pass it and that the intestine would then straighten out. So we will watch him for the next few days and see what happens. He has to be a happy kitty right now that he has passed the stool.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Izzie is no better. Sue called the vet and at first they said to bring him in Wednesday. After a few words from Sue they said to bring him in as soon as you can. There seems to be a blockage of some sort or a bad case of constipation. Anyway we are leaving as soon as possible. Talk with you later

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I am deeply concerned for Izzie. He hasn't moved all day until a few minutes ago when we went to our bedroom and went into Hobo's kennel crate. I tried to feed him, but he is not interested in food. He has peed but has not had a bowel movement. He doesn't complain so I don't know if he is in pain or not. Tomorrow morning we will take him to the vet for some X-rays to see if there is a blockage of some kind.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is cold here this morning at 34 degrees. It is supposed to get into the 60's today so it will be warm up some. The camper is clean, the padding under the carpet in the bedroom has been replaced, we are ready for our next adventure. I found a Freight Liner dealer just two miles from the house that will service the motorhome, that's nice. So I hope no more trips back to Knoxville, Tennessee just to get it serviced. Izzie is still not feeling well. The blood work came back normal so Monday we will take him in for X-rays to see if anything shows up. He is eating when the food is brought to him and he is using the litter box. Sue brought the litter box down stairs for him to make it easier for him. He hasn't passed stool so maybe that the problem with him. How do you give a cat a laxative? Lilly is doing great and has fit into our routine without a problem. She is such a nice little girl and very obedient. Hobo and Suzie are doing great. I just wish Izzie was okay. Okay I need to get moving so I will close fro now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Alexander the Grrreat and Spotacus are sending good kitty thoughts to Izzie. Hope he's doing better soon. Thanks for the good thoughts. Keep the prayers coming for Izzie. Sue and I were talking last night and saying Izzie has been with us almost half of our marriage. When he first came to us in 1991 he was just a few weeks old. Levi found him in the bushes next to the brick fence at the old home place in Waynesboro. He was sure we were his parents and claimed us as his home place. He was there with us during the early days of the Old Fella Rescue. I will never forget that night he lay by Old Fella's head when we thought he might die from the heart worm treatment. He was there when Sarah was brought to us on death's door and when she was brought home from the vet Izzie made sure she was comforted. I hope Izzie recovers from whatever this is. It is going to be hard on us if he doesn't.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Dixie Flyer, I haven't been on the site in a few years as I've been busy and such. It really brought a smile to my face to see this string still going strong. ?? Good to hear your Izzie is doing better. Good morning everyone. jeepgal it is good to have you back. The thread is amazing. Last September was ten years for the thread and now we are working on eleven. Izzie is a big question mark this morning. Sue got him to eat and drink water yesterday but he is in a lot of pain when he walks. Monday I think we need to take X-rays to see if there is something going on we can see. It is hard for him to walk. He doesn't complain, he just lays around and sleeps. I don't know what to do at this point, we need more information concerning his condition before making any more decisions. I will wait for the results from the blood work on Monday and go from there. I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Izzie is a little more active this morning. He slept in front of the fireplace last night as I had a fire going and he loves to sleep in front of it. I guess he likes the warmth it gives off, He is eating and drinking water and has used his litter box. You can tell by the way he walks he is in pain. Hobo is having an issue with her stool as it is cover with mucus. So I guess it is her turn to go to the vet. Lilly has been with us since Monday, what a sweet little girl. She loves to cuddle in my lap when I sit in the lounge chair. Suzie and Peaches are doing well. I hope all is well with everyone and your fur babies. The weather is supposed to warm up by tomorrow. It will give me a chance to clean the motorhome. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure too tell someone you love them.
