The topic: Handsome


Amazingly, he’s doing better.  I’m sure the antibiotics he’s been getting have played a big part in his recovery. 

I also started adding fish oil to his morning baby food and l-Lysine morning mixture, bulking that up somewhat with some Nutrical. 

He puked this morning for the first time in three days and that’s wonderful.  That might be because he started grooming again and pulled off lots of nasty fur (his drool is like glue on his fur).  I did get a Pepcid down him this morning.

Something else I started, and I don’t know how smart this is of me, is I started giving him a small amount of Metacam every other day.  I think that’s helping him, too.  His back has never seemed all that good ever since he’s been here, I wouldn’t doubt if there was some major injury to it in the past.  Last week he was kneading the pillow on the sofa and moved just right that he slipped off the arm and his claws were caught in the pillow and he twisted a little trying to get loose (he needed help, it was that bad) and last night he fell off the back of the recliner.  So, maybe the pain killer will help him a little.

I know we’d all feel better if this heat would let up, it’s taking its toll on all of us.

We found a dime and two pennies on our walk this morning

The topic: Still the weather


It’s still miserable.  I know we’re not the only miserable place in the country and I know that other places are more miserable (which I find hard to imagine, because I don’t think I could be any more miserable).

We ran the A/C this weekend and it was nice.  Until the A/C tried to get to 80°.  Then it ran and ran and ran.  Last night, I’d shut it off for a half hour, then turn it back on for ten minutes.

Yesterday morning, we went to breakfast.  We headed up to Descanso, where there is a nice little restaurant called “The Descanso Junction”.  Good food, reasonable prices.  Portions are too big, though, I never finish. Anyway, on the way up we saw smoke from a fire.  While we were eating, we saw firetrucks going by. The fire was in an area known as Japatul (Hap-uh-tool).  Last night, our sky down here was filled with smoke from the fires that were spreading.  Lots of areas evacuated.

Before we went shopping (really low on dry cat food), Brian was out talking to a friend who dropped by.  I finished cleaning the litterboxes and took the bag o crap out to the dumpster. I went up to listen in on the conversation, adding an occasional comment.  The discussion got around to the heat and I told them that I was certain the oil companies are behind this weather.  So us hot saps out there in pay for your use land will be screwed even more deeply. I just know they’ve got some sort of “turn up the heat” machinery and they’ve changed the weather to their advantage.  And the visitor laughed and said “and I bet somehow Bush is behind it”.  Yeah!  Yeah!  Those oil people are his chums, they’re all in the same category and I bet the gummint known as Dubya is letting his buds use gummint top secret stuff to make us all so freaking miserable. Hey, Dubya does lots of stuff he doesn’t want people to know that he’s doing, I bet that’s it.
