I haven’t got many footage this week that I have not already posted, so this submit shall be comparatively short–and principally cat footage, haha. However yesterday’s submit took me without end to write–all about my “horrible, horrible, no good, very unhealthy day”–so right this moment’s quick submit is a little bit of a weblog break.
I really like once I come throughout one of many cats sleeping in a nearly-perfect circle! The symmetry is so satisfying for some motive.
These images form of present the dimensions distinction between Phoebe and Duck. See how tiny she is?
Talking of Phoebe, she’s nonetheless hanging in there! She give up letting me give her fluids; I might have saved combating together with her every single day, but it surely was a nightmare. It required two of us: one–me–to maintain Phoebe and push the needle in, and the other–Jerry–to management the IV bag. I nearly posted the image I took of Jerry’s blood everywhere in the IV bag to indicate what occurs once you attempt to stick a needle in an unwilling cat, however I made a decision it was too grotesque 😉
Anyway, I believed that might be the top of the highway for her. I attempted once more to provide her the particular kidney food plan meals (it was the ninth out of ten cans; I might opened the others over the previous couple of weeks hoping she’d eat, however she refused to even strive it). Properly, apparently the ninth time is a appeal! She ate a couple of tablespoon of it, which is so much for her to eat at one time.
Ever since then, I can get her to eat a number of instances a day. It is nonetheless a giant manufacturing as a result of the kittens are SO dramatic and after they scent Phoebe’s meals, they sit exterior my bed room door (I feed her in there to maintain the opposite cats out) and Duck tries to work the doorknob the entire time she’s consuming. Phoebe is jumpy, so if she hears a noise whereas she’s consuming, she often stops consuming to see what is going on on.
She nonetheless does not look great–very skinny and clumpy/greasy fur–but I have been taking her exterior a number of instances a day, which she loves. I am taking it in the future at a time; I do know she’s not going to be round without end, and I really thought her time was up a few weeks in the past, however she’s a really resilient cat!
This was a little bit of a tense/humorous state of affairs when Estelle was chilling in an Amazon field and Duck did not see her. He jumped on the field, noticed Estelle (who flattened her ears again and simply glared at him). Duck “ducked” his head (I wasn’t positive what different phrase to make use of there!) and tried to very subtly step off the field to indicate submission, however she is ruthless. If appears to be like might kill, properly, Duck most likely would have misplaced 5 of his 9 lives that day.
The cats love my electrical blanket as a lot as I do and I used to be mendacity on the sofa in my bed room final evening studying a guide when Phoebe got here and laid down on my thighs. Estelle got here in a couple of minutes later and I might inform she wished to swat Phoebe off so she might lie there. She is aware of I do not let her bully the opposite cats into taking their spots, so she very rigorously climbed onto the sofa by my toes, after which simply laid on my shins. It was humorous having each of them up there. (And a serious check of how massive the capability of my bladder is.)
(Regardless of what it appears to be like like, that is not crusty meals or spiderwebs on my blanket! The cats “knead” their paws on it regularly they usually’ve snagged the material, inflicting little threads to stay out right here and there.)
The cats get a lot consideration on my blog–poor Joey–so here’s a image of him in his glory whereas we had been out strolling. He loves this stretch of our stroll as a result of I let him off leash and he can sniff round all he needs.
Lastly, here’s a image of Noah and his girlfriend, Claire. I believe they appear so cute together–they’ve been collectively since September, however they had been buddies for a very long time earlier than that.
Noah goes to be EIGHTEEN years outdated in July–can you consider it?! Once I began my weblog, he was solely six. I need to consider one thing enjoyable to do for his birthday, so if in case you have any strategies, let me know! I really cannot bear in mind my 18th birthday…
Properly, I simply regarded in my images to see if I had any footage from my 18th birthday, and that is the one one I discovered, haha. It was taken at my dad and mom’ home, so we will need to have had dinner and cake over there.
Probably the most uncomfortable and awkward 20 seconds of my life occur when individuals sing Blissful Birthday to me. Does any grownup really take pleasure in it? I do not do not forget that day, however I do do not forget that sweater and it was essentially the most itchy merchandise of clothes I’ve ever worn.
Okay, that is all I’ve bought. Have an ideal weekend! xo
