Made it to the finish line


Last post of the month. Made it through NaBloPoMo two years running.

It was a little harder this year than last. I felt like last year I had more to say. This year it was all, "Thanksgiving! People! In my house! Gaaaah!"

But hey, the challenge was about posting daily, not about being interesting daily. That? Yeah, I don't think I could do that.

Now I'm gonna go knit.

Wait! Kitty wellness update. I'm pretty sure it's not just wishful thinking that the lump on the cat's face is getting smaller with the repeated application of antibiotics. Pleaseopleaseoplease, it's an infection and can be easily taken care of and not something-something oma. Please?

She hasn't been eating much this week, but tonight she showed an interest in my dinner so I did something I have never done. I fed her from my plate. I took some turkey, ripped it into little bits and fed her by hand. Then when it looked like she wanted more I went and got some from the fridge. I'd say she put away about 2 ounces of turkey, which is pretty good for a very small cat who generally just nibbles on something and then walks away.

I know. Bad habit to start, feeding her people food. But you know what? At this point I'm just happy she ate something. She was really getting me worried with the whole not eating thing.

When my dog was sick and not really eating, I fed him ANY.THING he wanted. He got better. Now he is just plain awful, I wouldn't trade it.

I SO agree with Hotch Potchery! If it encourages her to eat, go with it. Y'know what? Feeding your little-old-lady cat a little table food in her golden years won't hurt a bit. In fact, you'll someday be thankful for it.

It's certainly better than, "I'm sorry I never let my smelly old-arthritic-achy dog on the sofa."

Yeah, you guys are right.

I've been sitting here over lunch deciding to get teeny little cans of tuna -- the kind with the pop-top on them. You know the ones I mean? I figure if her teeth are good enough for shredded turkey meat, I can mash up some tuna for her as well.

But you ARE interesting daily!!
You are one of those rare people who can write about ordinary things in a very appealing way!
And. glad to hear about Delilah. Hey, she's your PET - feed her what and how you want.

I tell you what, Anonymous, you sure are good for my ego.
