    The plan was to take an Ativan at my 9Pm dose along with huge Baclofen and Tizanidine, to try and sleep past 3 am and not spasm. Unfortunately I was s o. Comatose that when the 1:30 am alarm went off, i turned it off without waking up. Woke up naturally at 4:30 am realizing had missed the 1:30 dose. NOT GOOD! You cannot do that with Baclofen. SO, I immediately loaded up on the missed meds, and was a zombie for the eye doc appointment.

    I hate this disease.

    I do too. One problem with hating it though is that it takes energy just to hate anything. That zombie feeling is the pits. It feels as if I've been hollowed out. I'm not sure there's any of me left sometimes.

    I can certainly qualify for the zombie club almost every morning and sometimes all day if it is a wipe-out day. I think my problem with that is that I do not sleep well at all and therefore just feel very bad in the morning. I've tried most all of the sleep advice that I have heard about, but it just doesn't help. This was not always the case, but it has gotten much worse with the years. It is so fortunate that I do not have to work anymore.

    Now, back to the cats. Agate's link somewhat answered my question. For the part that went unanswered I will assume that the cats that go up who cannot get down on their own are just not really very bright cats.

    Let's face it, Sam would never do that! But then if she did she could come down backwards in a jiffy.

    There are not dead cats in trees nor falling out of trees.

    Cool

    Most of cat's behavior comes from the kittens observing their mother's behavior. If they had always been indoors cats, they were never exposed to the tree climbing technique.

    If I had a cat stuck up a tree, I would (from a ladder) show them by moving their back legs to start down. You wouldn't have to show them but once.

    Sam has moved past going up and down trees, to using her chainsaw, and cutting trees down.

    Sure, Sam. If a tree is in your way, just cut it down. Problem solved.

    Howie, I can easily--well, maybe not so easily--picture you out there climbing a ladder in your thong and retrieving a cat caught in a tree. But sometimes the cat goes higher than most ladders reach. This is long but shows ways cats get rescued:

    Sunshine,, We tried to raise chicks, was working out well, till we inherited a border collie,,{was dropped off at my dad's kennel ,tied to the fence, Penny was a very sweet dog } she herded everything,, even chicks,,,, they thought Penny was mama,,; she slept with them,, she passed away one night in her sleep,,3 yrs later,,I couldn't handle the chickens after that,, so we sold them
    We too had chickens and got them in the mail as little chicks. My husband started hatching them from their eggs and that was interesting. But as soon as we had a lot of chickens the problems of taking care of them were really immense. And I was the one who cleaned the coop each day!

    We had lots of varieties...some had feathers on their legs so it made them look like they were wearing pantaloons and some laid eggs with green or blue shells and some had heads with long feathers and looked like Phyllis Diller! That was a fun decade. We raised geese and peacocks and wild turkeys and pheasants with brightly colored feathers. Fishermen loved to come here to gather feathers to make flies.

    Quite a life...

    Agate, is there something I need to do to start that video playing? It's just a black box for me.
