The current weather is hotter than snot

The topic: Housework


I’d planned on getting some housework done this morning. Vacuum the west side of the house before it got too hot and test out my new FloorMate.  Except Handsome has been sleeping on the back of Brian’s recliner most of the day. 

Okay, I put him there early, since it seems like he’s a lot more comfortable there than laying on the base of the cat trees in the living room. When he’s on those, he doesn’t sleep nearly as much, but spends a majority of his time huddled and keeps his head up, eyes open.  On the recliner, he relaxes.  Since he’s not been feeling well, I figure it’s better for him to be on the recliner.  Sleep is good for a weak body.

Friday, I went to the vet’s office and got some meds for him, the clindamycin drops.  They’re nasty, but they work.  Today, he’s actually eaten almost an entire cat of Hill’s A/D all by himself.  And each time he eats, he eats just a little more than he did the last time.  Then I pick him up and put him back on the recliner.

And he sleeps.

I watched him pee this afternoon and he’s got a good strong flow, with a lot of urine.  He’s started drinking water again and that will help with his hydration.  I have heard him sneeze a couple of times, so I’m believing he’s just feeling punky because of some sort of cold virus.

The housework can just wait.
