|i had crazy nightmares last night and didn't sleep well, to put it mildly. i actually was so stressed yesterday that i forgot to eat. i ate a bit. i didn't starve. anyway, i had to take the cat's water and food up and the cats kept coming to tell me all night, although i know they aren't starving, but it sucks. kahlo hopped in the tub and licked the walls. which she never does. she slept on my pillow last night and i was knitting a sock to help chill out, so she sat and attempted to eat my working yarn, as she likes to do, and i let her. not eat it, but gum on it. don't worry, the socks are for me. i wouldn't give someone else socks that smell like cat breath. she snores as loud as a person, which is so adorable...it goes like this..."shhhhhnooooooore! shhhhhhnore! shhhanoooore!" and somehow it doesn't keep me awake. even when it was an inch away from my ear. plus the purring. she sounds like a pigeon and purrs all the time. you know when she doesn't that she feels like garbage. poor girl.|
so i woke up at the asscrack of dawn, thinking that i had to get her there by 8:30 at the latest, and had to wrangle her into her carrier, and she put up a good fight and then howled...oh wo wo wo woooe! oh wo wo wo wooooe! so intense that peeps started doing it too, exactly the same sound. it was great. i drove her to the vet which is about 2 minutes away and sang to her all the way, which calmed her a bit, although she still howled and shivered, which is the worst, the tremors, and realized that actually she didn't need to be there until 10 and they don't even open until 9. so i sat in the parking lot with her and sang to her "kahlo k, kahlo k, kahlo is my favorite girl...repeat at nauseum" which calm her a little bit, but still the tremors. there was a shelter cat coming in to get his leg amputated, poor guy, before her, i dunno what the story was, but they make the animules wait in the cage a few hours to calm them down, so then i felt worse that she had to wait an extra hour and a half, rather than being home. i told the nurse my concerns, she seems to be a bit warm, she hasn't kept any food down yesterday, etc, and she said "it's ok mum". that is about it, huh?
i called at 2:20 to see how it went and she hadn't gone in yet, i had hoped she was done. anyway, i will call back at 3:30 and she should be done.
i came home at 9a and had a horrible headache, spun a big fat bulky louet bobbin of yarn and then laid down for a minute...no 3 hours and had to struggle to wake up and get coffee and eat. so. i have work to do, needless to say.
otherwise, i need to go do stuff and return emails. i will likely post as soon as i hear how surgery went.
ok, off to skein yarn. my least favorite. oh yeah, my life is so hard. whine whine whine.
thanks so much for all of your concern and comments. it means so much to me and all of the good energy cannot be a bad thing for kahlo.
smoooooooooooooooch. hug. hug. smoooch.
so...it is now 6p and we picked up kahlo who is FINE! i told them i thought she had a bit of a fever and she did...instead of 102.5 (WDVE) it was 103.1...i am good, aren't i? she had no more teeth extracted, although her teeth were really gross, they were cleanable and are now really really white! i guess never drinking coffee has it's upsides. or so i hear. she is surprisingly well adjusted and not mad at me, although hungry and not allowed to eat until to-morrow, poor girl, and she is hungry, but seemingly, really good. so all of your wishes (sort of like the clapping in peter pan...) really helped! she says thanks! and i am going to take photos of her teeth, i swear it.
