Well, I was a bit concerned about it, so when he picked up this conjunctivitis recently and I took him to the vet for that, I mentioned it since I knew it could be a symptom of something.

As for Harley, she's still prepared to sleep a lot, but also not giving her much choice as keeping her pretty confined. But she's not trying too hard to get out yet.

Might change once the ex-fix comes off, but she will still be in a "cast" for a while after that. (It's not really a cast, just bandages, but it might as well be. Smile )

It's also winter here and bloody freezing these last few days, so she has her own hot water bottle. Very Happy Here she is:

She looks comfy. Fingers crossed for Mr. Ginger not having anything serious. I have strictly forbidden my other cats to get sick while Min is going through treatment, and they've been cooperative so far.

I haven't been around much because my work schedule is a bit soul-destroying right now. We have a new middle manager who is a contender for being the least mature person I have ever worked with. Long story short, he got into a huge fight with his boss, which he won? by claiming he has corona symptoms. And spent the rest of the week claiming he was having trouble getting tested. So we're all wondering if we've really been exposed. Fun times.

That kitty looks about as cozy as a kitteh can get. I feel healing endorphins welling up just looking.

A former student of mine asked me to beta read his fantasy novel.

Now, I was prepared for it to be garbage and maybe I'd suffer through and then be diplomatic. I'm in chapter 3 and starting to feel a girly squeal of hopeful delight!

This is gonna be lit... erature. Very Happy

I might have you beat. I had one supervisor complain that I wasn't working Sunday overtime, because I was running the Chicago Triathlon. She was upset, because the data in the database was messy. But the data was messy because of idiotic decisions she made during tax season. Basically, she wanted me to do the overtime to fix her mistakes. I don't work there anymore.

Don't talk to me about messy client data. Very Happy

Kitty is less happy at the moment, because she had the ex-fix off her leg on Saturday, so I assume she still a bit sore.

Ginger back to vet tomorrow for another blood test, Harley back to (different) vet on Wed for bandage changes. Still has 2 pins in, surgeon says maybe can take them out in 2 weeks.

Me...I'm fine. Very Happy

My husband asked me yesterday how old Dusty, our kitty, is, and I realized she has to be 10 by now (as with all our adopted cats in the past we don't know her actual birthday). Where does the time go?

We got Willy as a puppy, and he's almost 4 already. And boy is he a nice doggo. Orellia, who we also adopted, is over 7. Sheesh.

George, the immortal one-eyed parrot, is over 20. Depending on what you read, African gray parrots live 55 to 80 years, so he's still an awkward millennial. (That's assuming he was a chick when the people who gave him to us bought him for about $10 twenty years ago.)

Thankfully all pets are healthy right now. I hope all your kitty gets well soon, Av.

Thanks Deer, I'm sure she'll be fine. Already come a long way, although can't believe it's been nearly 6 weeks already. Damn cats. Very Happy

Well, good news, Ginger does not have diabetes, his glucose is back to normal and everything looks fine.

I've gotten a notice saying I will have no power at home from 08h00 to 16h00, which kinda interferes with my week.

Other than that, as good as can be expected I guess, and hope the same is true for everybody else. Wink

Seeing as we're on a topic of pet travails. We have two dogs. Willy is mostly Caucasian so large, hairy, and sweet natured. Orellia is a mutt we inherited from a family who left Nigeria and also very sweet. Unlike Willy, she is plagued with vermin. I spray her and her sleeping area with chemicals every few days, but the dang fleas won't leave her alone. Unfortunately we've had this issue before to where the dogs needed a kerosene bath. It kills the vermin effectively but it also half-kills the poor dogs, so I really don't want to go there yet. Sad Because this is Nigeria, there are only limited products available and the quality is always questionable. What should be a once-a-month treatment is what I'm using twice a week. Poor doggo.

Kerosene bath? Yikes. Sounds awful for everyone involved.

I'm going through my usual mid-June/early July drama with my youngest cat. She was diagnosed with stress-related interstitial cystitis about 6 years ago now, and it's not usually a big deal because she's a housecat with a very low-stress life, but she always has a flare-up at this time of year. I suspect it has something to do with my neighbors setting off so many fireworks that it sounds like WWIII every night between about 11 pm and 3 am. I have the artificial pheromone stuff going for her, and she's pretty relaxed throughout the day, but it isn't enough to compensate when the noise starts. Which is fun because she gets more defensive than scared, and her response is to angrily pee in the direction of the explosions. Going to send those neighbors my laundry bill.

Shame, mine is a bit unhappy right now, bandage changes yesterday, and she ended up in a cone to stop her worrying at some skin irritations etc. She's very miserable about it.

Boss decided at the last minute not to renew our office lease, so yesterday was frantic packing up of office in order to be out today, long day. Very Happy

Dunno, but I assume until the irritation and pressure sore clears up, otherwise she just licks off the ointment.

Yeah, for now anyway. Cases are rising quite dramatically here as the lock-down has eased, so he doesn't want us to risk it.

We've been remote working since mid-March anyway, before the official lock-down.
