My account of the day:
Tuesday, 3-30-2021, Lily scheduled to be spayed. The anguish a cat parent feels exists when you have to take your unsuspected little one in for the procedure.
“Why am I not getting breakfast?”
“Why is Lucy eating and not me?”
You see their questions in the expressions and muttered meows. Heartbroken, you know it has to be done.
Then the worries. Under anesthesia. What if things don’t go well? Try to block those negative thoughts.
Hey, it happens every day across the world. Why should a healthy cat have problems?
Nice to have cats close by… but they can be more help than needed.
Walked across my keyboard. Sap and what happened? I am left with a letter at the top of my page. Said a quick prayer and hoped my back arrow returned the 700+ words I just finished. Breathing a sigh of relief and returning the culprit to the floor. “Scoot, don’t need your help if this is what you are going to do.”
Half my time spent in front of the keyboard is juggling one or both cats on my lap or behind me on the chair. If they just stay in one spot, it makes my endeavors much easier. Continue reading
Lily turned a year old on March 1, 2021. She arrived at our house 3 months ago. How quickly the time flies.
Hard to believe we went 7 months without a cat to grace our home. Now we have 2 wild fun loving cats.
The flying squirrel, aka Lily, has been pushing her limits with us.
She wanted to get on top of the 6-foot shelf in the office. Many attempts, with a firm ‘NO’ have gone on deaf ears. She has big ones, so I know she can hear.
Persistence finally landed her on top. Bolted up with a flash before I could abort the leap.
Back and forth she went as I tried to grab her. Hoped the scare of being dragged off the top might discourage future jumps. NOPE… not in the least.
We had been fighting this crazy adventure of hers for weeks. I guess she decided the day arrived to conquer the unknown.
Three weeks ago, we became a multi-cat family again. Last time we had 2 was January 2015. But no kittens since 1998.
Were we prepared? Not sure. We thought so. Are these 2 more of a challenge? Perhaps.
Cute helps. Lots of laughter is an antidote to pulling out your hair.
One was a handful. Didn’t think number 2 kitten could be too much trouble. Together, they are keeping us on our toes. More than we ever imagined.
