kat the cat


last night we gave kat her tomato juice bath.

in this photo, she’s almost dry,
but still not too happy about the whole thing.

and…she still stinks.

poor old kat.

i might give robin’s recipe a try this weekend.

1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide
¼ cup of baking soda
1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap

Mix the three ingredients together and use immediately. The chemical reaction produced from these 
ingredients lasts only a limited time. If you use this formula to remove skunk odor from your pet, be 
sure to rinse your pet off with water. Do not let the solution soak for more than a few minutes. 
Paul Krebaum, a chemist for the Molex corporation in Lisle, Illinois, has developed this odor remover 
which works on anything including decomposing organic matter, fecal matter, urine & skunk spray.

( robin, thanks for the recipe. )

thursday – 9:10 am

i have gone through my email and have read a few posts.  it’s time.  time to be grateful and thankful to God as i clean.  in the thankfulness i enter into relationship with my God.  time to clean the skunk smell from the garage and the side of my car…and the cat.  God will speak to me today, as i clean, wash the dishes, cook, put away clothes, do laundry, as i am grateful.

our strange will – there is enough grace for us all – and more

from wikipedia

Kerouac explained what he meant by “beat” at a Brandeis Forum, “Is There A Beat Generation?”, on November 8, 1958, at New York’s Hunter College Playhouse. Panelists for the seminar were Kerouac, James A. Wechsler, Princeton anthropologist Ashley Montagu, and author Kingsley Amis. Wechsler, Montague and Amis all wore suits, while Kerouac was clad in black jeans, ankle boots and a checkered shirt. Reading from a prepared text, Kerouac reflected on his beat beginnings:

It is because I am Beat, that is, I believe in beatitude and that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son to it… Who knows, but that the universe is not one vast sea of compassion actually, the veritable holy honey, beneath all this show of personality and cruelty?[6]
