I've been sewing. Woohoo! I'm ignoring all the UFOs and playing with this quilt for the Liberated Amish class just because I want to. Feels good. I'm working on an Ocean Waves (although it may morph)
I've been doing that rather than the desperately needed house cleaning. I am in the mood to sew and feel an almost compulsive need to do it. The rest of this post is about kitties, feel free to skip.
I have been fitting in trips to the vet. Lily cat had to go in to the vet Thursday night so she wouldn't eat any food or drink water in preparation for a teeth cleaning the next day. There was no way we could lock Lily away in a separate room all night. First off she'd have been scratching at the door and cheeping madly and then Habibi would undoubtedly have crashed at the door all night, throwing all his weight at the door handle - he does it enough times and he will eventually get that door open.
So it was good that Lily had the teeth cleaning. She had a vile condition and yet another bit of nastiness... Two of her teeth had to be extracted. If they'd been left in there the ickiness would have continued to spread throughout her teeth - just like happened to Howler who also suffered from this and is now down to three teeth.
Lily would have been in a lot of pain but showed absolutely no sign of it. And weight loss or signs of trouble eating? Not a bit of that - the girl gained four pounds over the last year. That must be down to the special high-carb/low protein diet all the cats are on because of Pokey's health. It's the anti-Atkins Diet or as my vet called it, The Fatkins Diet.
Anyway, Lily bounced back really quickly and is doing great. I'm hoping she's going to be sweeter now to the rest of the cats.
Feeling like a baaad kitty parent. Had no idea about all this. Habibi is the next kitty scheduled for a vet visit and teeth cleaning...
The reason I can actually get Habibi to the vet is that my husband is home for an all too brief visit - I can't manage the big cats on my own. Anyway, husband is at the beach - not to make everyone in the SNOW states jealous.
