Can this cat relax, or WHAT?!?!
I wish I could sleep as well as she can. She’s out like a light, beside me on the couch.
We’ve had a bat in the house, sneaking around. Can’t quite find it yet, but it comes out at night and Livvy the Cat watches it all night. I am horrified of bats, I HATE HATE HATE them. Because we have an old house with holes in the walls (I’m still in the process of rewiring the place), the bats come straight down from the attic. IT IS AWFUL! So yesterday, we went through the house, stuffing plastic shopping bags in as many holes as I could find. All that work didn’t do much to assuage my fears about them– I had terrible nightmares about millions of bats all over the house. :S So I’m quite jealous of Livvy’s deep snoozing.
In other cat news, I had to take my oldest kitty, Milo, to the vet today, for emergency care. My poor baby.
One vet had said Milo has allergies, and suggested we give him Benadryl. Hasn’t worked at all. So I took him to a cat specialist vet and she says his problem is probably a bad tooth (?!). Whatever it is, Milo’s eye is bothering him again, and he’s scratching at his cheek enough to tear into it. 🙁 He’s doing better today– he’s on antibiotics and I have to apply eye salve in his eye a few times a day. He’s a good kitty, but he’s old and grouchy, and doesn’t see any benefit to all this medical attention… plus, he is officially locked in the garage and cannot go outside until his wound is healed, which makes him even grouchier…. durn cat! He should stay outta trouble! Oh well.. he’s 12 years old now, a great cat. But we fear that his Happy Hunting Ground trip may be coming up soon. 🙁
