The topic: Skinny little Lorelei

----------------------------------------------

I went into the bedroom yesterday afternoon and heard a cat mewing.  I tracked the sound down and it was Lorelei, stuck under Brian’s dresser.  She was trying to get under the front, but it’s way too close to the floor.  Her legs were sticking out behind it.

I slowly pulled it away from the wall and she got turned around and was under the thing entirely.  I went into the kitchen and grabbed the tuna I’d opened the night before to get Phoebe in and put that behind the dresser.  Heh.  She was already out. 

I gave her some tuna anyway.

I hope she doesn’t do that again.  I don’t think Brian appreciated my emergency phone call.

The topic: Ron Howard

----------------------------------------------

He hurt himself yesterday.  He was fine yesterday morning, but limping around last night.  It was obviously so painful, that he didn’t do any playing.  He made it to the litter box, then limped back to his bed.  *sigh*

I took his temperature and it was normal, so there’s no fever.  He did play a little more this morning with his sister, but he’s still not feeling good.  He wouldn’t eat any of the yummy food I tried tempting him with, so it’s a good thing his mom is here.  He had no problem at all hitting her food distribution area.

So, it would appear that he played just a little too hard at some point and pulled a muscle.  Poor little guy.  I was so ready to take him to the vet, especially after Ciara’s problem, but I think waiting a few days at this point to see if it resolves itself might be the best thing to do.

Right now, Rory is playing with a mousie in the hallway and Lorelei is with her son, grooming him while he gets his breakfast.

The topic: This morning’s Ciara update

----------------------------------------------

Still haven’t heard about the MRI schedule. 

She tried to bite me yesterday when I was stroking her down the side and ran my hand down her leg.  Is this a sign that she’s getting feeling back?  Or was it just that whatever I did, it put pressure above the leg and hurt?  I’d like to think she’s getting the feeling back, but that could be wishful thinking on my part.  I’m doing a lot of that lately. 

She doesn’t always make it to the litterbox, but she does try to get out of the carrier before she goes.  There have been a couple of times she’s peed (I think it’s her, anyway) outside of the carrier on the floor.  And there is the occasional time she doesn’t make it out of the carrier, which is why I check her blanket every couple of hours.  And I say a little prayer of thanks that I bought so many of those cheap fleece blankets last year.  It would be hard to run out.

Brian will be home in time to take us down to the vet this morning. I’m relieved about that.  I was dreading the ride down.  Trying to adjust to these contacts (which I just know are monovision, otherwise my right eye wouldn’t be so blurry when I’m not “seeing” close range and I’m going to let that doctor have it on Tuesday), my ankle is still hurting a little, although the swelling had gone way down, and driving in an area I’m not familiar with at all, well, I was dreading the ride down.  With Brian driving today, when I have to go it alone I won’t also be trying to find the address.

As for donations, if you want to give something towards her care, use one of the donation buttons at the bottom of this page, the PayPal or the Amazon buttons.  And mention when you give that it’s for Ciara.  We don’t really need anything, honestly, but if you want to give, it will go toward Ciara.

And that’s about it for my little furfaced sweet Ciara Vista’s morning update.  I hope the next update will bring happy news.
