The topic: Help with housework


This morning Charlie helped me make the bed. Nice kitty cat.

The topic: And on a happier note (laughing)


Last night I remembered I had a timer/stopwatch app on my tablet. 

I set it for a minute and counted Cappy's breaths. Works nicely and a whole lot easier than taking video, downloading the video, editing the video, then counting. 

Of course, the beep when the timer's done is pretty loud, but I think after we've heard it about a thousand times (I think that will be in about eighteen hours - remember, I've got this weird compulsion thing), it won't be such a shock.

This is his fourth day on Rutin and he's not getting any worse. 

His breathing rate is between 35 and 43 breaths per minute. The first recording I have of it, the first time I counted was last Friday morning. It was 39. So, he's holding steady.

And it seems to me that he's breathing more deeply, but that could just be wishful thinking on my part (another thing I'm good at).

I sure hope he can beat this thing.

The topic: Phone just rang


It was a "courtesy call" from Roadrunner Pharmacy, who still sucks. My order should be here Wednesday.

As we used to say in high school "f*ck you very much". yunny

On Wednesday, Captain will have been on Rutin six days.

And I did get a response from the local compounder. I'd asked about vet compounding and let them know that I considered RR rat bastards.  yawn  According to the responding email "sadly,  this isn't the first time we've heard this".  I'll be calling them tomorrow. The nice thing about them is they're local and we won't have to wait for them to pull their thumbs out of their asses to get the stuff shipped, we can just go pick it up.

And Summer?   If you're reading this? You're still a twat and you can take these frigging cat toys and shove them were the sun don't shine. The same place you keep your head. Right next to your thumbs. That dark and warm stinky place.  

And if you think I'm making this personal? You're damned right I am. Once again, it's about my cat, good customer service (which is obviously a thing of the past for this company) and not your bottom line.
