Happy 4th

Are there fireworks for you tonight? We’ve heard them for the past three nights (since the firework stands have been open), but the big ones are tonight in Florence.

They are fired off of a barge in the middle of the river.

Still Life (with Cat)

Moving with Cats (Feliway Diffuser Plugin = Must Have for Multicat Homes)

We should probably do something about this hidey hole.

One of my Big Goals is to create cat friendly spaces. I’m doing OK I think.

Pop re-screened the porch for them. They wait by the door each morning so I will let them out.

Some things never change.

Doing Better

I really should be putting things away. Instead, I’m migrating to a new book (aka planner). It’s amazing how puffy these things get. The one on the top is everything since January. The one on the bottom is new in its plastic wrap.

Old on top, new on the bottom.

Lady Bird is doing much better.

In the den.

She’s mostly eating and takes a new heart medication twice a day. She’s going back to the vet this afternoon to make sure it’s working. Our new vet is getting to know us very quickly.

One of these days I’ll be picked up enough to show some of the house. But not today.

Afternoon Into Evening

That’s a moving box to the right. Everyone likes the empty boxes.

I’ve been so proud of how well the cats are adjusting. Lady Bird especially. Since she can’t see and is easily startled, I expected her to be one of the last out from under the bed. She surprised me by being the first out the door when we expanded their space. She’s been all over the house, navigating the box piles and rediscovering the furniture. She was doing great until she caught Washington’s sniffle (which we thought was a dust allergy). She stopped eating – an extra big problem since she has thyroid issues and her food is her medicine. She went to the (new very nice) vet on Friday for fluids and antibiotics. She seemed perkier yesterday and woke me up this morning, although she didn’t want breakfast. If she doesn’t have a snack tonight and breakfast tomorrow, it’s back to the vet.

6-21-2017 She ate a bitty bit. We still carried her to the vet for a different antibiotic, fluids, and a pill to make her hungry. This morning she and Abigail rejected breakfast and ate a little lunch. This is worrisome and aggravating.

6-22-2017 12:30am Started getting foamy, threw up, rapid breathing. She’s at the emergency vet. After a chest x-ray, the best guess is a bad reaction to her new antibiotic. Sooooo back to regular vet at a reasonable hour.

6-26-2017 Heart trouble! She’s got a 2x a day heart pill now. She’s eating again. But only wet food. But she will take her pill in her food so that’s something. I giver her the pill laced food and when that is gone, add more to her dish.
