Happy St. Patrick's Day
Karen Jo: I am on vacation this week. I have been really tired, so I have been resting and sleeping a lot. I also had a pile of mail and newspapers to get through and I need to do my income taxes and clean the house. Sorry about not blogging, but I have been going to bed much earlier than usual.
Not a whole lot has changed between me and Emma. We touch noses almost every day now and she only hisses at me sometimes. When Mom got up the other morning, I grabbed her warm spot and Emma and I ended up sleeping only about four inches apart. I actually touched her with my paw when we woke up and she didn't hiss at me about it. I tried to play chase with Emma on Monday, but she wouldn't chase me back. I have started peeing in Emma's litter box. I still poop in my own box, but I pee in hers. There is good news on the poop front. I ran out of Centrine a week and a half ago, but I am still making normal poop. Maybe my pooper has recovered from my illness last year.
Karen Jo: I certainly hope so. That would mean that you are a healthier kitty and you won't have to take as many pills. Emma had to go to the vet on Monday for her introductory visit. I was glad to take her, as I had noticed that she was scratching and rubbing her left ear quite a bit. It turns out that she has a yeast infection in both ears and needs medicine in her ears for a week, then back to the vet to see if that took care of the problem. She is supposed to be wearing a soft E-collar, but there was no keeping her in it. I let her out of her carrier in the living room, which she had never visited before, just to see what she would do. She started exploring and Herman was just watching her. When she found the hall, she ran down it, and Herman chased her. She ran into her room and Herman stopped short of the doorway and waited for her to chase him back down the hall, but she was having none of that. She was too busy kicking off the collar. I tied it back on her and one minute later she had her front paw caught in the neck opening. I tied it as tight as it would go and three minutes later she was wearing it for a skirt. That's when I gave up on the collar. She is not often scratching inside her ear, so I think it will be OK. I have been tidying up the house, taking care of the mail and working on my income taxes all day and I am getting pretty sleepy, so I'll just say Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of you and end here. I will try to do some visiting, but if I start falling asleep at the keyboard, I am going to bed.
