  • TalkRational: Do you have to allow so much swearing and name calling on your website? Is it really necessary? I came by this web site by asking a Bargain Hunt question and was surprised that such a family, morning TV programme has cause for such mindless profanities. It makes one ask why watch the programme then?

I want a pet raccoon but it's professionally irresponsible of me to even encourage it. Thanks a lot, Baylisascaris, you bitch.

As a police officer no 2-days are the same. Ofc. K. Vaughn responded to a call for assistance this morning for one of our furry residents. It seems this little guy has been eating a little too well and got caught in the sewer grate. Animal Control Ofc. R. Knorr & Ofc. Vaughn were unable to remove him and had to request help from the real heroes over at the Zion Public Works Department. They were able to free him and our friend was no worse for wear. Check out the photos and see if Ofc. Vaughn is more scared of the raccoon than it is of him! All in good fun, nice save Ofc. Vaughn.

Poor critters.

ETA: one of my cats caught distemper, either from live vaccine or from a sick cat at the vet's. Regardless, I'd not wish it on any animal. They kept him at the vet's for five days on continual drip line, then handed him back to me too weak to stand for more than a few minutes, ribs visible through his fur, a severe limp from being confined I guess, and no appetite. They gave me a sticky nutrient paste to smear on his mouth to encourage him to eat.

He did recover, but he was a half grown kitten and developed a little odd looking, like a cat in a Mediaeval painting, kind of long bodied and short-limbed. He had been all black, but developed white speckles through his fur, lots of them.

Anyway, miserable disease.

just by the by...
the human version of the virus that causes canine distemper is measles.

(It can be a pretty nasty disease, too, despite what you might hear from the Andrew Wakefields, Jenny McCarthys and Dave Hawkins of the world.)

That's interesting, I did not know that. I had measles, since there was no vaccine when I was a kid. I remember having mad fever dreams.

Feline distemper is feline panleukopenia virus, which is a parvovirus like the one that causes parvo in dogs. Canine distemper is a paramyxovirus. So they have the same name but are totally different, which is why the term distemper has fallen out of favor for feline panleukopenia. It's still commonly called that in practice out of habit as a short hand because it's a pain in the ass to refer to the vaccine as FVRCP when you can just call it distemper.

Raccoons, which are the best animals that I'm not allowed to have as pets :sadcheer: , can actually be infected by both feline panleuk and canine distemper, but given the neurologic signs, this was probably canine distemper.
