[Rush!Plush] December 2011!

Dec. 17th, 2011 | 06:03 pm

As per usual~~ Friend's List can ignore the following post~ XD 
I am just hosting another custom auctions here on my journal~~!

2 RUSH! PLUSH spots,
1 "Yuke Yuke" Mascot Custom spot

are up for auction!  

This is the ONLY way you can get a custom plush from me.
I do not take commissions.


-What is a RUSH!PLUSH?-
A RUSH!PLUSH is a commission spot that is to be completed within an approximate of 30 days or less time span! A Rush!Plush does -not- mean it will be rushed or lack in quality. It just means you are bidding on a commission that takes about 1 month turn around time on my end.  This will be the only way to get a commission from me from here on out. I do not take commissions anymore.


-Why do you take on RUSH!Plush when you have so many pending commissions?
Rush!Plush are squeezed in on my days off from working OR on my commercial days that I have no commercial projects to work on. They take no actual time away from my 40 hours work week commission schedule.  I take them on about once a month to pick up the slack when my commercial job is not paying me in between projects since it's not exactly steady income.


-AUCTION TERMS-
- Shipping and Handling is not included in your bid unless BIN is used! (BIN includes FREE Standard Shipping to anywhere in the universe!)
- Shipping time is not included in the approx. 30 day turn around time
- Fabrics will mostly be chosen by my discretion. ((Don't sweat it though, I am a big fan of using minky for critters! I promise your plushies materials will be chosen carefully and will not be made from old socks. ))
- All plush will be made from all new materials
- Payment plans WILL be accepted~! A non-refundable Deposit of at least 50% will be required immediately after winning though.  If you need to make arrangement for otherwise, I would be happy to work with you. I will allow you to create a schedule but please be reasonable with your payment plan. I have the right to refuse~
- It will take 30 days from when your full payment is received and/or you told me all the details you wanted.
- The plush can be fanart, an OC, a critter or even a real person! It's the winner's choice!
- Prices are in USD Only
- Paypal or Money Orders Only
- Serious bidders ONLY! I have the right to refuse sales to anyone for any reason.
- Backing out of a big will result in a negative feedback
- More Plush examples can be found here:
Usako-chan@deviantart

Please send email bids to: usakochan.com[at]gmail[dot]com with the subject line "RUSH!PLUSH BID

I have the right to reject any request that I am not comfortable with or physically impossible.

♥ 1 Yuke!Yuke SLOTS ♥
A "Yuke!Yuke!" Mascot of your choice!
Any character/mascot combo slot!

 I have a lot of customers saying they would like to win an Usako auction one day however,
they can't always budget it. So I wanted to give everyone a chance to own an Usako!Plush for cheaper!
So I came up with the idea of these mascots!- They are approx 3 inches big
- Made from various materials but mostly my minky scraps! 
(I always have a hard time throwing away even the smallest piece of minky SO I found a solution! 8D;;)
-Yuke!Yuke means Go! Go! In Japanese. I thought it was a cute name being that they have a cord
attached to them so you could potentially take it on the go with you! ^_^
-All faces were carefully hand painted by me with a size 0 brush

-I would like to keep these one of a kind so I will not be remaking any of the ones I already made below.
-I would be happy to do a repeat character, however he would have to be dressed as another mascot.  (IE: I would do Volkner again, but only dressed as another Pokemon OR a Shiny Luxray) (Or I would be happy to do another Luxray, however it can not be Volkner again)

- Can be any character (and not just P!Mon related!) OC or another fandom ^^
-I can also do the reverse (IE: a critter dressed as a person)

This is the list of the mascot combos I won't remake:
Brock/Vulpix
Cilan/Pansage
Cheron/Purrloin
Chili/Pansear
Elesa/Emonga
Erika/Gloom
Fennel/Muuna
Juniper/Minccino

Nurse Joy/Chansy
Officer Jenny/Growlithe
Sabrina/Abra
Sabrina/Espeon
Serge/Raichu
Volkner/Luxray

N/Reshiram
Falkner/Staraptor

-Bids starts at $45-
Buy it Now for $100.00 (BIN includes free shipping to the universe. :D)

You dont have to go by the $5.00 incremental rule on the Yuke!Yuke! Mascots~ $2.00 bid increments (or more) is fine. :D ***

All Auctions END SAT DECEMBER 19th 10pm NYC time (Eastern Standard Time!).
(unless buy it now option is used)
(If in the event there is a bid war at the closing of the auction, bidding will automatically be extended by 10 mins from the last bid place~! This is to prevent sniping. )


That should cover it all!

WARNING: Purina pet food has started making pets ill

Dec. 5th, 2011 | 11:16 am
mood: sadsad

Originally posted by boosette at WARNING: Purina pet food has started making pets ill
Originally posted by issendai at WARNING: Purina pet food has started making pets ill

My coworker John told me that his cat was seriously ill--throwing up, lethargic, refusing food, dropping weight. The previously healthy 6-year-old, 15-pound cat had lost a third of her body weight over the last few months. The vet couldn't find anything wrong with her. Blood tests were clean, and she didn't have any known illnesses. Yet she was a few days from organ failure.

That was a week ago. She's fine now. The solution was... to stop feeding her Purina cat food.

When John told me that, and said that friends of his had the same problem with their cats and Purina cat food, I looked into it. Holy shit. Take a look at the consumer complaints about Purina cat and dog food. This exact same problem has been an issue with Purina pet foods since 2007, but since this summer, the rate of complaints has picked up drastically. People who previously had to problems with Purina are reporting issues. Comment after comment sounds the same:

I've been feeding my three cats Fancy Feast canned food Chopped Grill Feast for many years. They have always devoured their meal and licked the plates clean. Last week, I noticed they did not want to eat much and went from plate to plate, ate a little. Next day, none of them would eat it. I kept trying new cans. What they did eat made them vomit and one cat was lethargic for days. I refuse to buy any more of this food. It's very scary. I don't know what is wrong with the food, but I fear it has toxins in it. I switched to another brand and the cats are fine now. Did anyone else experience this?

-----

My dogs have been eating Purina Dog Chow (green bag) for about four years. They used to eat only Iams, but due to financial issues, we had to go with a cheaper brand. The last bag I purchased was about a week and a half ago. My 14 years old Labrador has vomited about 5-6 times and my German Shepherd has vomited about 4 times. Something is wrong with this food! The food has a kind of metallic smell to it. It just does not smell right. I'm taking it back to the pet store. I am changing my dogs' food, it's just not worth taking the chance to save a few dollars.

-----

We purchased a large bag of Purina One Salmon dry cat food to give to a needy pet owner. She emailed us a couple of days later ,to say that there were maggots, lots of them with what looked to be like strands or webs with more dead gnats or flies, pieces of web in the food and "shells" of gnats or flies in the bag. Cats would not eat much of the food and, fortunately, they did not get sick. The store had noticed this problem in other bags and was willing to swap out.

-----

I purchased a 34 lb bag of Purina One Smartblend dog food every three to four weeks for my two Labradors. The last bag I purchased seemed fine until I noticed a new infestation of little black bugs. Upon further inspection through the contents of the bag, I noticed clusters of white "eggs" adhered to quite a bit of the food. Some of these clusters contained larvae in the process of hatching. I immediately threw out the remaining contents of the bag but did save samples for my vet.

We went out of town last weekend and had friends dog sit for us. We originally attributed their lethargy and random vomiting to separation anxiety. Although they are doing better, I am still concerned and will be watching them closely. As stated, I saved samples of the infested dog food for our vet in the event that anything results from this issue.

-----

I recently switched to the Friskies Poultry Variety pack (32 cans) that says it must be used by August 2013 (12281789 09:31 lo61237) sku (050000454242). I have 5 cats and feeding them this food, I noticed some of them throwing up. There's nothing in it but liquids, no hair ball, no food, nothing. My cats range from 8 weeks to 13 years old.

I switched my own cats to Purina a couple of months ago, and their coats look so much better than they did on the old brand of cat food... but Buffy has started vomiting stomach liquids. Purina and Fancy Feast are off the menu. Permanently.

I have no idea why this isn't news. But if you're feeding your pets any Purina brand, please don't wait for media confirmation that something is going on. Stop feeding your pets Purina immediately.

That's terrible~! =( I had bad experience with Purina One myself but it's slightly different. I'll share my story anyways though. Maybe it will help someone or some pet along the way?

My dog Scribble was raised on Purina One. At the age of 3 she started having seizures. I couldn't figure out why but the vet told me that Border Collies were prone to it so I accepted it at first. Well after having about her 6th or 7th one (and these things are SCARY as shit, and freak me out. My poor baby~~~ ;_;) I got fed up and researched a TON of things. I wanted to know how likely it was it was hereditary, how to prevent them, what was causing her to seizure like that once a month, etc.

It didn't strike me her food could be causing it until I was reading about a very similar case to mine on a Border Collie forum, however the poor family lost their dog. They happened to casually mention they also fed their Border Collie Purina One. That's when it hit me. So I started to now research the brand. I never thought to question it before hand.

It turns out Purina one is a below average kibble. I always chose Purina because it was one of the more expensive common brands you find everywhere. I just assumed because it was more than Alpo, Pedigree, etc that I was buying better ingredients. I was incredibly wrong. Most bags of food at the Grocery Store or Target are all below average. =(

We now switched her over to Blue Buffalo Wilderness (A 5 star brand dog food) and she hasn't had a seizure in about 2 years. They completely stopped. It was truly no coincidence either.

After reading similar cases I would definitely advise AGAINST the brand.

I just wanted to throw my two cents in. Maybe other pet owners can learn from my experience.
