AP Exclusive: 2 cats in NY state test positive for virus

Damn, Damn, Damn, and more Damns.   Hugs

Two pet cats in New York state have tested positive for the coronavirus, marking the first confirmed cases in companion animals in the United States, federal officials said Wednesday.

The cats, which had mild respiratory illnesses and are expected to recover, are thought to have contracted the virus from people in their households or neighborhoods, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

The finding, which comes after positive tests in seven tigers and lions at the Bronx Zoo, adds to a small number of confirmed cases of the virus in animals worldwide. U.S. authorities say that while it appears some animals can get the virus from people, there’s no indication the animals are transmitting it to human beings.

More at the link above.  Worth the  read I think.   Hugs

My chair and my Saturday adventure.

Filed under: Animals, Economics, Funny Stuff, My Life and Rants, People I like, Pictures — Scottie @ 10:12

I have been needing to get a new desk chair for a while.   I use my desk chair all the time, it is really the only chair I use in the house when I am up.   I not only blog at my desk, I watch TV, and I watch movies or listen to music all while sitting in my desk chair.   My old chair was all torn up from my use, the front of the seat all marked from where the cats jumped up on it to get to my dest, and two weeks ago the back started to break in that it wouldn’t come back up to a full up position any more.    Ron decided it was time to replace it, I was willing to wait , but Ron worried I would lean back and it would let go on me.   


To Staples we went.   As Ron and I were looking over all the high back desk chairs the first of three young guys came over to offer to help us.   These workers were all young, late teens early 20’s.  Why is it young people all look cute and good looking?   All of these young people just seemed to have so much energy and vitality, it tired me out just watching them.  So we told the first young person we were going to look them over and did not need help.   I am particular with my chair, first is height as it is hard on my hips to be bent and I struggle to stand up.   I also need lots of back support when sitting upright, so the chair has to have strong lumbar support.  I like a good head rest for when I hurt so badly I need to lay back for a while.   The arms and arm height is also very important as I lay my arms on the rests as I type.     I was checking how far back one chair would go and pulled the wrong lever, causing the chair to sink and bend my hips.  The hip I fell on last monday screamed in my mind with pain and I nearly passed out.   As I was struggling to get up out of the chair the second young man came over to offer to help.   Again we told him we just wanted to look, thanks anyway.      After a while as I had narrowed my choice down to three different ones a third young man came over to help.  He was so tiny at first I thought he was a kid out shopping for electronics,  but he was clearly wearing the store uniform.   He had a 23 or 24 inch waist.   My arms are small as I have not used the muscles in years but his were even smaller than mine.   He asked if he could help us.   I said no thanks, but rather than say ok and leave us this boy kept asking questions and pointing out things on the different chairs.   I let him wind down, no need to be rude, and then thanked him but told him I need to sit on them for a while to decided and it was unfair to take up his time as this would take a while.   He seemed happy with that and said he would be around if we needed anything.   

He was good to his word, I think he was watching us because when I decided he seemed near and I spoke up saying ” Young man, now we are ready to have your help”.  Ron burst out laughing at my using the term young man.   I responded that compared to us he was a young man and looked like a high school kid.   The boy blushed as he stood there, and seemed pleased at the complement.   He got the chair we wanted and did all the things need to buy it.  Then he took it out out to the van for us.   I was worried as the box seemed heavy for him putting it in the van, that we might have trouble getting it in to the house.    Here is where the funniest thing happened. 

After he loaded it up for us we stood there talking, again seemed like a really nice guy.   Then he stuck out his hand and without thinking I also stretched mine out and we started to shake hands.   Ron yelled out ” Hey you two, stop that.  You’re not supposed to do that anymore”.    The boy stammered and I winked at him and told Ron I was just getting the boy’s phone number.  The boy was again blushing and he was saying how he used the hand stuff all the time.  I was laughing and Ron was grinning.    After we got in the van Ron turned to me and said ” I can not take you anywhere can I”?   

Ron was proud of himself bring the box into the house as he had less trouble with it than the boy did.   Here is pictures of Ron putting the new chair together.  It looks good behind the desk, it has more room than the other chair to move around as the back is straighter.   Milo was pushing Ron to empty the box faster, and then claimed the box as his.    Hugs

Home now

Hello all you grand internet loving friends.  I got home 30 minutes ago.   Spent some time giving comfort and love to the cats who were sure I was lost forever.   I heated up some spaghetti and sauce I had made for our supper last night.  I will tell everyone the story later, but for now I am going to bed to lay down.   I do not mind the closeness of the MRI machines, I really do doze on and off in them.  However laying so still and in that position hurts me.    Right now my entire left leg is numb, on fire, and in a lot of pain.   I am hoping laying down in a much better position where I can move will help.  Until I get back, love and hugs for everyone.   Hugs
